overbalanced as he attempts to scoop this wide of the keeper, loses his balance as this hits the top part of the bat and lobs to the keeper's right, short third man comes around to take the catch. Game, set and match to the Rajshahi Kings
The Kings enter the BPL's top four with eight points in seven games while the Victorians are in third with the same equation in their favour.
What entertainment. First the stifle, then a special century from Evans to get them to a competitive total. Comilla were in the hunt, then imploded. Mustafizur, on the face of a late onslaught from Afridi, exhibited his mastery over the cutters and allowed Rabbi to reap the rewards at the other end.
Laurie Evans is the Man of the Match. Tough coming here, my first time. Good to get an opportunity. Nice to share a partnership with him. It came a lot more consistently when we were here last time. Towards the end is where my strenghts lie, where I can put seamers under pressure.

swung across, this is a swirler. The deep midwicket ropes is no more than an inch behind. He takes a step forward, trembles, them moves back, settles underneath, but realises this is going away, so leaps and then dives backwards to grab this, but realises the momentum as he hits the turf could result in him spilling, so lands softly. What awareness, outstanding.
