Scorecard summary
Rajshahi Kings 185/7(20 overs)
Comilla Victorians 155/10(19.1 overs)

We've had a one-sided couple of matches in the BPL. Let's see if that changes when Chittagong Vikings take on Rangpur Riders in just over an hour's time. This is all we have from this game. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Be back for the second game, or if you're a fan of Test cricket, we have plenty of content up on the site from the Ashes today. And, of course, there is the India-Sri Lanka Test that is heading towards its close on the second day. So switch tabs there. Nothing else from me. Goodbye and thank you for joining us.

Darren Sammy is the Man of the Match.

"It's (the hand) not looking good. I got hit by the ball a couple of days ago but now it's come back but it's not looking good", says Comilla captain Tamim Iqbal. "I was batting mostly with my bottom hand. The way we batted was ver poor. We just needed to pick singles to support Jos, but we need to give credit where it's due. Rajshahi played really well and we have learned from our mistakes. The wicket was amazing to bat on, but we did not have a good start. At one moment, it was our game."

4.44pm Right then, that match was all Sami and Sammy. A comprehensive win for Rajshahi takes them out of the bottom spot. But here's a question for you. Who was the greater hero? Darren Sammy or Mohammad Sami? Sami took four wickets - three of them in one over - to break the back of Comilla's chase. That included a set Tamim Iqbal, who was always going to be central to Comilla's chances. 4--0-9-4 are stunning figures in a T20 game. But then, Comilla could have been chasing a lot lesser if not for Sammy's scorching innings in the slog overs. Would Sami then have managed to have the same kind of impact? It's something to ponder as we wait for the presentations.
