That's all from us from this time. See you soon.

"It was a close match," says Mehidy Hasan Miraz. "I think our bowlers were excellent, especially Mustafizur. I think in first six overs we got some 50 runs, Charles did well and ten Doeschate scored in the middle overs. We have two matches, so we just need to keep going on."

Mustafizur Rahman is the Man of the Match.

"I think it was not the easiest wicket to bat on," says Mushfiqur Rahman. "Rabbi and myself got out at the wrong moment."

"We had full confidence in him [Mustafizur], that's the quality player he is," says Johnson Charles. "I think I was struggling a bit to keep my shape. I think, however, we win, we should try to win."

10.18pm A brilliant display of death bowling by Mustafizur Rahman helped the Kings register a seven-run victory to keep their hope alive. Mohammad Shahzad scored a 22-ball 49 and Yasir Ali a 38-ball 58 but Mustafizur's 3 for 28 meant Vikings could score only 191 for 8 from their 20 overs
