That's all from us. Thanks for joining

Imrul Kayes: Tamim is a great player, showed his character today, his knock will be remembered for a long time. We were worried after the first powerplay but through the middle overs Thisara Perera and Wahab Riaz did very well

Tamim Iqbal is the Player of the Match: Throughout the tournament, I had starts but couldn't go on, guess I was saving my best for the last. Fantastic wicket, at one point 200 was looking small, but we knew we were only a couple of wickets away.

Shakib al Hasan is the Player of the tournament: Thought we should have got the runs after the start we got, unlucky to keep losing wickets. Tamim was magnificent. I've played three finals in the last three years and two of them were single-handedly taken away from us

The players are over the moon, grown men cartwheeling and sliding across the turf like excited children, as they complete a victory lap, to thank the crowd that has turned up. A while before that Tamim Iqbal, the difference, a major difference between the sides was held aloft by the Victorian players, for without his effort they would have been well short of a competitive score.The Dynamites fought, but they went down fighting, eventually suffering the same fate as last year, where they were pummeled by Chis Gayle and failed to chase down a target of 207. This time, they were coasting, but Wahab Riaz and Thisara Perera scythed through the middle order, as the Dynamites slumped to 143 for seven from a commanding 120 for two. There was no way back from there.
