Rangpur Riders

10.15pm Mashrafe collects the trophy and is joined by his jubilant team-mates. Rangpur Riders celebrate under firework-filled skies. That's a wrap of this season's BPL. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Goodbye and good night for now.

10pm Gayle: I am disappointed with my bowling but I'm still the best offspinner in the world. It was a slow start to the tournament, but we peaked in the right time in the qualifier. Charles and McCullum eased the pressure off me. Mash showed quality. It was a team effort overall and that was important. I want to thank the management and the physio. It was a great tournament and thank you to the Bangladesh fans for the support. Hopefully, I will be here next year too.

Shakib: What we have achieved in the tournament was terrific. We worked so hard to make the final but today was Gayle's show. I missed a chance and that cost us the trophy I think. You expect me to bowl four overs but when Gayle was on song it was hard for me to bowl, If Gayle had got out, I would have bowled four overs. It has been a terrific tournament and I hope it continues. Hopefully, we get some players for the Bangladesh international team.

Mashrafe: Batsmen like Gayle batting 20 overs, the way he is batting is phenomenal. We got the cup because of Gayle only. We bowled very well and batted very well. The trophy is for Rangpur Riders and the players are happy. I am happy the owners and the management are happy.

9.45pm That is that. Apologies, we lost the feed in the last over. Rangpur secure their maiden BPL title. Mashrafe Mortaza has played four BPL finals as captain and has won all. Gayle is being mobbed by his team-mates. He shellacked 18 sixes - the most by any batsman in a T20 match. Here is how Gayle broke records and Dhaka. Gayle, of course, is the Man of the Match and the Man of the tournament

Tahia Tahia: "Take a bow Mashrafe Mortaza, the man of the moment, the man who makes history! Making yet another team take the trophy home. Man, he deserves an ICC trophy. Please please please! 2019 World Cup, please!"

Muhammad Imran: "Dhaka beat Gayle by 3 runs... Better luck next time... "

Mo: "Poor Jahurul, if Dhaka had batted first, he could have played the innings of his life. But since they are chasing after a score made by the Universe Boss and Baz, and everyone else is falling like dominos. He probably doesn't know what to do. If the BD batsmen were better, then Dhaka could/should have played Amir. But Gayle was dropped anyway. If Shakib had taken it, who knows? If Dhaka had batted first, who knows?"

Sohaib: "I never saw the day would come where someone would refuse to take a single and not give strike to Brendon McCullum. I think that sums up the Chris Gayle. #UniverseBoss"

Tanzeev : "You don't get away with it everytime. How can you overlook Amir? He is arguably the best impact bowler around. And he is the man of big occasions, just like Gayle!"
