  • Taijul Islam4-0-23-3
  • Al-Amin Hossain4-0-36-5

Al-Amin Hossain, who took a hat-trick in his five-wicket haul, is the Man of the Match. "I didn't bowl well in the last game, so I just tried to bowl my length and I wasn't thinking about anything else"

"We were 20 runs short," says Mahmudullah, captain of Barisal Bulls, "I felt the wicket was sticky. I think we should have batted more sensibly. The bowlers did great, hitting the line and length well. I knew we needed wickets to defend it, but the hat-trick from Al-Amin and Taijul bowled really well. His catch was the turning point. His last over, to defend 10 runs, he bowled really well"

"I thought the bowlers and fielders did a great job, the batsmen let our team down. It was a chaseable total but credit to Al-Amin. We have a lot of work to do," Mushfiqur, captain of Sylhet says, "Batsmen need to show up. It's still early in the tournament"

Sylhet can't believe how they have fluffed this, but full marks to Mahmudullah for his tactical field changes and bowling shuffles. Al-Amin has seen it all tonight. May face a disciplinary sanction for his scuffle with Mohammad Shahid, but he has bowled his side to victory. When you can bowl like that, wonder why there is a need to rile up the opposition. Fifth final-over finish in six matches. Munaweera's dismissal, to me, was the turning point. Do join us for the presentation shortly

Taijul Islam to Edwards, 2 runs, he hasn't hit it hard enough and Barisal have won. It was a quicker one on middle, Edwards stepped out to swing, but didn't get anywhere near the pitch of the ball, only managed the toe end, the deep midwicket fielder was quick to get to the ball and fire in an accurate throw. They completed the second but it didn't matter.

The Man from Barbados needs to hit a boundary to help Sylhet win

Taijul Islam to Subashis Roy, 1 run, steers it to the cover fielder to make it four off the last ball.
Taijul Islam to Subashis Roy, no run, rapped on the pad as he plays all around a straight ball that angles in. He took off for a single, but managed to make it back in time
Taijul Islam to Edwards, 1 run, lofted, but one bounce to the deep midwicket fielder. Nearly an overthrow. What drama
Taijul Islam to Edwards, 2 runs, backs away and whips it into the vacant square leg region, the fielder in the deep went the wrong way initially. Mahmudullah isn't amused
Taijul Islam to Mohammad Shahid, OUT, can't get to the pitch of the ball, but goes through with it but can only hit it as far as the fielder at deep cover. The shot was on, but he didn't get hold of it. Taijul first takes an excellent catch in the last over, and then is among the wickets in a high-pressure final over.
