4.5 and the change of angle works! Good length on off and Tamim tries to slog this over the bowler's head. Slices it and holes out to Gazi at mid off. In the air for a really long time but safely taken 54/1
    12.1 outside edge, and well taken by Mithun! Good length on off and angling away from his body. Tries to pull but takes the top edge as he is through his shot too early. Udana strikes first ball in his return. Eventually cramped Liton up after the batsman walked a little bit across to the off side 96/4
    5.4 Impatient Kayes pays the price! Comes down the ground before Gazi pitches the ball, it's pushed full and wide outside off. Kayes misses completely, and the keeper does the rest. Second wicket to fall inside the powerplay 56/2
    9.2 Holes out to long off! Charges down the ground and attempts to lift this for a six. Got the elevation, but not the distance. A well calculated catch in the deep, takes it from near head high. Rubel checks how close to the ropes he is, before starting his celebration. Big wicket! 75/3
    18 Bopara gets his man! Short on middle and attempts the pull this time. Through his shot too early and comes off his glove. The easiest of catches for short fine leg. Soft dismissal. 147/6
    17.1 Slow, good length ball on middle stump, pulled but does not find the elevation. Not off the middle of the bat and down Nazmul's throat at deep midwicket. Bopara gets his fellow Englishman 137/5
    19.1 overpitched on off stump and tries to slog this over the bowler's head. Got the elevation, but not the distance. McCullum takes an easy catch at long on. Muted celebration from the Rangpur fielders 155/8
    18.4 good length outside off stump, pulled off the back foot but not off the middle of the bat. Holes out to deep midwicket. 154/7
    not out
    19.3 full on off stump, tries to heave this over the off side but nowhere off the bat's middle. Lyth gets under it at cover. Ninth wicket down 155/9
    20 An epic catch from Mashrafe! That's how it will end here. Full ball outside off that's slashed away from his body. It was going away from Mash, who did well to run behind and complete the catch. Comilla are all out and Rangpur Riders are in the finals of BPL 2017! 156/10
