That's all from us for tonight's game. See you tomorrow.

Ebadat Hossain is the Man of the Match.

"Bowlers did a great job but fielding let us down," says Mushfiqur. "But 166 was still very chaseable. We were in the game till I got run-out. As I said earlier also, top order needs to get some runs. Hardus bowled really well too. We will try our best to win the next game."

Time for presentation ceremony.

10.46pm And that's victory, although only a consolation one, by 29 runs for Sixers. Ebadat Hossain picked up 4 for 17, while Wayne Parnell chipped in with two. Mushfiqur was the only one who offered some real fight with 32-ball 48 but once he was run-out, the result was sealed.
