Rangpur Riders 2, Comilla Victorians 0

Scorer: Md Mahamudun | Commentator: Thilak Gowda

That's it from here, do join us tomorrow from another cracking double-header. Cheers.

Mashrafe Mortaza - It was pretty good wicket, we scored 50 in five overs and we lost it in middle overs. T20 is all about momentum, hopefully we play it better.

Shakib - I think we played the perfect game. We had a decent plan, keeping wickets till the end and Jahurul did that. Spinners were getting some help, also we decided to bowl more spin and we bowled it good areas.

What a turn around it was. Chasing 153, Imrul set the tone early on smacking 38 in 24 deliveries. Victorians misread the script in the middle overs and left way too much for the final quarter. Perera after bowling an awful first over came back in strongly and bagged three wickets. Spinners bowled well in tandem and choked the Victorians. Well they have themselves to blame. Reckless shots, swung their bats like swords and eventfully fell on the same. With this win Rangpur Riders sit on top of the table.

Perera to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, OUT, slower ball and he has dragged it on, bowled'em and its all over

Kamrul Islam Rabbi b Perera 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Perera to Abu Hider, 1 run, slower ball and mistimes to off side for a single
Perera to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, 1 run, another yorker and he squeezed it out for a run
Perera to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, no run, curled in from off and he digs it out
Perera to Dhiman Ghosh, OUT, in the block-hole and it rattles the off stump. Ghosh had no answer. Full and straight and the batsman was late in bringing the bat down in time

Dhiman Ghosh b Perera 2 (13m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

19 | 18 Runs | CV: 130/8 (24 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 6.84, RRR: 24.00)

  • Darren Sammy2-0-21-1
  • Thisara Perera2-1-16-1
Sammy to Abu Hider, SIX runs, slower ball on off stump, he waits and swings at this one and it sails over long-on for another six. Its coming way too late for the Victorians
  • 'Lost soul' Jahurul finds BPL solace

    Jahurul Islam has not played for Bangladesh since 2013 and admitted to feeling like a "lost soul" owing to some personal trouble over the last two years. Now he has made vital contributions to table-toppers Rangpur Riders in the BPL
