Shakib al Hasan: I thought we played really well, Rubel was fantastic, all the bowlers bowled well, but credit goes to Rubel, he has been great through the tournament. Can't ask more from my team, in the end we are in the final, I just want everyone to enjoy the match. There will be some niggles and not easy to stay fit and play all matches in such a long tournament but everyone will want to play the final
Mashrafe Mortaza: 142 difficult to defend, especially at night. Losing three balls three wickets made things difficult. Nadif Chowdhury could have built his innings better, but batting out of position he did well. The bowler's have been giving their best, batting has been a bit disappointing. Main series coming up in New Zealand, hopefully everyone will be fit and give their best for Bangladesh.
Rubel Hossain is the Player of the Match
AnamBMDF : "Man of the Match: Rubel or Russell?" My twopence worth, Rubel, for ripping the heart off the Riders line-up
karim: "Without AB and Hales last two match RR played ordinary cricket...."
AnamBMDF : "DD are used to BPL finals. This year, its DD vs CV. Lots of fireworks are expected from Narine, Tamim, Russel, Afridi, Shakib, Perera and Pollard in the final. Wooooow...."
For a major part it did not look like the most convincing run-chase, but there were enough contributions through the top and middle to set it up for Andre Russell, who finished it off with a typical Caribbean flourish. The Riders didn't help their cause with misfields and dropped chances but in the end, they just didn't have enough on the board. The Dynamites are in the final and they are on a roll, with three wins on the bounce
