Scorecard summary
Sylhet Royals149/7(20 overs)
Chittagong Kings150/7(19.1 overs)

The man who steals the show from the Sylhet Royals is ten Doeschate who took away the game from them after the 15th over. He scored 44 of 28 balls. They required 52 runs of 30 balls and he had the match winning partnership with Ariful Haque at the right time who contributed 23 runs of just 12 balls and lead Kings to the final.

Sylhet would regret the last few overs of their batting where they missed out some runs with Chigumbura on the wicket.

Ryan ten Doeschate named Man of the match.

Mushfiqur Rahim: "I think dew came into play and ball came nicely to bat in the second innings, I think we are 20 short. I think 180 would been a good ball game. Being the leader, I tried my best and credit to all the player and coach who worked hard."

Mahmudullah: "We thought, if we keep wickets in hand, we can get 50 odd runs in the last five overs. We tried to kept depth in our batting and Doeschate played well."

That's all we had for today, do join us tomorrow for the final when Chittagong Kings will take on Dhaka Gladiators. Thanks for following the game, Cheers!
