Riders will take on Dhaka Dynamites on Wednesday in the Qualifier 2. The winner of that game then will face Victorians on Friday in the final. That's all from our side for tonight's game. See you soon.
"It was another phenomenal match," Imrul Kayes says. "Our bowlers and batsmen executed their plans brilliantly. If Gayle is batting the total can be 190-200 in 20 overs but our bowlers bowled really well. We are trying to make a good XI. We have three days of time and we would like to come fresh. Every one wants to play the final. We will try our best."
Evin Lewis is Man of the Match. "Yeah, I am still injured," Lewis says. "I tried to give myself an opportunity to bat deep. The right-left combination made it really easy."
"I felt we were 10-15 runs short," Mashrafe says. "The way Benny and Rilee batted, we got a total we could fight with. We needed early wickets, we got Tamim but we needed more. We have got another chance, hopefully we will do well."
9.59pm Comilla Victorians have qualified for the final of BPL 2018-19. Evin Lewis was the hero with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 71 off 53 balls despite struggling with his hamstring. He got good support from Anamul Haque first and then a breezy 15-ball 34 not out from Shamsur Rahman took them to victory with eight wickets and seven balls to spare.
11 needed from last two overs
Mubeen: "Very poor captaincy from Mortaza. He should have used Shafiul Islam earlier in the innings so he could take wickets and put pressure on CV"
Around the wicket
AnamBMDF : "RR takes the highest risks including Big Men on top order for batting and got benefits in both earlier and this season. Last year, Gayle made the key difference among RR and other teams for clinching the title of BPL. This year, Rossouw and ABD have done this and so, they are now among top 3. Who knows Gayle has kept his thunderstorms for next 2 matches? Beware..."
ab: "totally agree with u @ak...prera or afridi could hv been better option "
Ak: "They should have sent shahid Afridi ..you know he can take the game from any opposition "
