That's all we have for you. Thanks for your company

Jahurul Islam is the Man of the Match

. "It was my first opportunity to bat in the centre I was just happy to finish the game. Pollard did most of the work. When he came in, the required rate was 14, when he left, it was only 8 and I and Mosaddek were able to do it."

"Today we showed character. Carlos played a great knock for Khulna, that gave them the momentum and we lost early wickets which set us back. But Pollard and Jahurul played really well. That shows we aren't a one-man team," Shakib Al Hasan says. "When you lose more than two-three wickets in the Powerplay, it's difficult to chase 160 runs. But we did that today and that gives us confidence. These games are very good for BPL, it will improve our cricket"

"I think up front we bowled really well. In the end, it was a bit disappointed. I was really happy with how the boys played though," Mahmudullah says. "With the new ball, it was gripping in the pitch a bit, as we saw both teams struggling in the Poweprlay. But Brathwaite and Rilee's partnership was crucial. And Pollard did the same for them. Happy to have held on to that catch [for Shakib's wicket], happy to contribute."

4.30 pm Heartbreaking loss for Khulna, and for Brathwaite in particular, who struck his maiden T20 fifty, and then was pulling off an outstanding final over. But his heroics come second best to compatriot Kieron Pollard, who slammed a 19-ball fifty.

Khulna brought the game back in the balance when they knocked over Pollard in the 15th over. That's when Jahurul Islam took over. He was 19 off 21 balls, slogging hard, but never finding the timing. He gutsed it out in the middle and finally walks away with the winning hit.

"I was under pressure after Shakib fell," he says. "But Pollard came and played an outstanding innings. It was most crucial, and it helped me finish it later because the required rate was only 8. I got in the wicket after a long time, I didn't play any big innings in the BPL. This is my first time. I was struggling for the first 20-25 balls. But then I started getting set and I said, if we bat through the innings, we would win" Big props to the man for admitting he was struggling.

19.5CR Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, reverse scoop! What a way to take the game! He realises the bowler will be going for a yorker, so he gets down low, watches the ball all the way through and with third man inside the boundary, he only needs to get the smallest bit of bat on it.

Dhaka need four off two balls.

19.4CR Brathwaite to Mosaddek Hossain, 1 run, full toss outside offl, slaps it to deep point and Brathwaite claps himself on. Continues to stand up under pressure, this time with the ball..
19.3CR Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, LEG BYES, 1 run, three toe-crushers in a row! Outstanding bowling from Brathwaite. There's something between him and the final over of a T20 match. Jahurul sneaks a legbye, just about digging the ball out outside off.
19.2CR Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, No run, another in the blockhole, and after missing this too, Jahurul yells in disappointment. Mosaddek runs up to his partner to calm him down.
19.1CR Brathwaite to Jahurul Islam, No run, nails the yorker outside off. Jahurul tries to flick it, isn't able to because of the late inswing. He's nearly run out looking for a bye.
End of over 19. 13 runs this over. 151/6 after 114 balls.
Mosaddek Hossain 13 (11b 1x4 0x6 ) Abu Jayed 3-0-24-1

Dhaka need six off the last six balls. Carlos Brathwaite, who set Khulna up with an innings of 64, to close things out

Akter Hossain: "Mahmudullah has make a big mistake here Aby Zayed to be bowl over no. 18 & 20 and archer to be bowl in 19th over OMG!"

Looked like Carlos Brathwaite was about to bowl, but then Abu Jayed has been brought on instead. Dhaka need 19 off 12 now...

Fine leg is back. Square leg, midwicket and long-on are back as well

(b x4 x6 ) more

Dhaka need 42 off 30 balls. Possible, but it needs some calculated hitting. Only problem is, Jahurul has played a pretty poor innings, 19 off 21 balls with only two fours. And Mosaddek is a new batsman

Dhaka need 43 off 33 balls and in walks Mosaddek Hossain. Good young batsman, but he'll be under severe pressure

Pranjal Raj: "@Sreenath I don't mind opening the innings with power hitters specially in a T20 game but I'm very much against sending another at No 3. A team relies heavily on no 3 and it should be a proper batsman who can work the bowlers around giving opportunity to the hitter to play his natural game."

Mahneel: "Brilliant from Mahmudullah. When he underperforms with bat and ball, he makes it up with intelligent captaincy and reliable fielding. What an asset!"

Pranjal Raj: "Dhaka dynamites are like the Deccan Chargers of IPL. Too many big hitters but no one to bind the innings together. Time and again it has been proven that you need a balance of the two."
