That's all we have for you from today. Goodnight!

10.00 pm Mehidy Hasan Miraz: "I think the wicket was very good, the last few matches had scores of about 200. We needed 20-30 runs more. Our bowlers gave 40-odd runs in the first six overs so it was difficult to come back. Hopefully we'll come back next match. Our lower order batsmen didn't bat well today. Last few matches, Jonker and Tendo got a lot of runs which is why we put on good scores. We have one match left, so we'll just keep going."

Farhad Reza is the man of the match He took 3/30 in four overs.

Mashrafe Mortaza: "It was much-needed after losing matches earlier in the tournament. But this form and momentum is very important (heading into the knockouts). Nice to see the boys step up at the right time. The last three matches, the bowling group has done a special job for us. They make it easier for the batters and credit also goes to the batters, who handle pressure really well. We send the four big guns straightaway to put pressure on the other team. There is a risk part, that if they get out there is nothing left. But we took the decision to be positive, put the pressure on the opponents and see what happens."

9.50 pm Rangpur Riders continue their rich vein of form. Straightforward enough win at the end, though if they want to be harsh on themselves they'll think that both Rossouw and AB should have stayed till the end, or at least one of them should have. Still, they're well on the way to progressing and have most of their pieces fitting well together.
