Wahab: That [no-ball] was a crucial moment. Unfortunately, I can't stop bowling no-balls. That pissed me off. Saifuddin is a great bowler and is doing very well for the team. It's not easy whenever a player like Russell is batting at the other end. We got wickets every two overs and that helped.

Shakib: Very disappointing the way we lost the game. It shouldn't have even come to the last over. From now on, every game will be a knockout match for us. Having said that, we still have a chance. Everyone bowled well and we fielded well as well.

Mohammad Saifuddin is the Player of the Match

Kayes: It was a phenomenal game today and I couldn't believe we won the match. Saifuddin, Afridi everyone did well. Tamim has been starting well, but we did not capitalise. Every match Tamim can't start like this, we need to work in that department.

Scenes in Dhaka. Saifuddin celebrates with a somersault. He wins it for Comilla and hands Dhaka their fifth successive defeat with figures of 4 for 22, including 16 dots. He hit a hard length with the new ball and then nailed the yorkers in the end to deny Russell. Dhaka are still in the running for a spot in the playoffs, though.

That's all we have for you from this game. Thanks for reading. Goodbye for now.

Mohammad Saifuddin to Russell, FOUR runs, Russell can only manage a four and Comilla sneak home by one run What a ball from Saifuddin. He executes the inch-perfect yorker on leg stump, does so under pressure, floors Russell. He gets an inside edge that sneaks through his legs and past the stumps for four

It boils down to six needed off the last ball

Mohammad Saifuddin to Russell, SIX runs, full and wide outside off, Russell reaches out for the ball and thumps it up and over extra-cover for six. Muscled away by Russell

Can Russell hit 2 sixes?

Mohammad Saifuddin to Russell, no run, back of a length on leg, cramps the batsman for room, Russell swings and misses
Mohammad Saifuddin to Russell, no run, full and wide outside off, Russell reaches out and scythes it to cover
Mohammad Saifuddin to Shahadat Hossain, 1 run,

Dhaka need 13 runs off five balls with just one wicket in hand. No.11 Shahadat Hossain. He will be on strike, and Russell with only be watching from the other end

Mohammad Saifuddin to Rubel Hossain, OUT, back of a length and skids back in at off, Rubel is late onto the ball and is pinned on the front pad below the knee-roll. This is pretty adjacent and Rubel walks back for a duck. More drama in Dhaka

Rubel Hossain lbw b Mohammad Saifuddin 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Dhaka need 13 off the last over. Can Rubel turn the strike over off the first ball? Saifuddin is back on the field and will bowl it
