short of length delivery, angling down the leg, Chigumbura went for that swing, that ball went flat and Stevens took that at deep midwicket. That's all Dhaka Gladiators won it by 4 runs and made it into the finals. Sylhet Royals still in the hunt and will play on Sunday in the second semi-final. Gayle named MOM. Thanks for following the game, Cheers!

another short delivery, and he went for a wild hit and got an top edge and keeper took it, Rahim walking back. Wait! umpire called him back and checking the front foot no-ball. It's too close to make a call either way and finally the decision, it's a no ball and a Free Hit
