10.15pm Mashrafe collects the trophy and is joined by his jubilant team-mates. Rangpur Riders celebrate under firework-filled skies. That's a wrap of this season's BPL. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Goodbye and good night for now.
10pm Gayle: I am disappointed with my bowling but I'm still the best offspinner in the world. It was a slow start to the tournament, but we peaked in the right time in the qualifier. Charles and McCullum eased the pressure off me. Mash showed quality. It was a team effort overall and that was important. I want to thank the management and the physio. It was a great tournament and thank you to the Bangladesh fans for the support. Hopefully, I will be here next year too.
Shakib: What we have achieved in the tournament was terrific. We worked so hard to make the final but today was Gayle's show. I missed a chance and that cost us the trophy I think. You expect me to bowl four overs but when Gayle was on song it was hard for me to bowl, If Gayle had got out, I would have bowled four overs. It has been a terrific tournament and I hope it continues. Hopefully, we get some players for the Bangladesh international team.
Mashrafe: Batsmen like Gayle batting 20 overs, the way he is batting is phenomenal. We got the cup because of Gayle only. We bowled very well and batted very well. The trophy is for Rangpur Riders and the players are happy. I am happy the owners and the management are happy.
9.45pm That is that. Apologies, we lost the feed in the last over. Rangpur secure their maiden BPL title. Mashrafe Mortaza has played four BPL finals as captain and has won all. Gayle is being mobbed by his team-mates. He shellacked 18 sixes - the most by any batsman in a T20 match. Here is how Gayle broke records and Dhaka. Gayle, of course, is the Man of the Match and the Man of the tournament
Tahia Tahia: "Take a bow Mashrafe Mortaza, the man of the moment, the man who makes history! Making yet another team take the trophy home. Man, he deserves an ICC trophy. Please please please! 2019 World Cup, please!"
Muhammad Imran: "Dhaka beat Gayle by 3 runs... Better luck next time... "
Gayle to bowl the last over
Hamza: "ishuru udana is the silent killer in the last three games for Rangpur Rider no one notice him he bowled really well in last three games"
