Player of the Match


That is it from another double header at the BPL. Sylhet yawned to another win. Comilla opened their account and we had a blast bringing both games to you. Things at BPL happening quicker than you expected them to. But isn't that what life is about? On that philosophical note, we leave you to meet you soon.

Imrul Kayes: It is a good feeling. Our bowlers did really well. Tanvir is bowling really well in the powerplay. Mosaddek has been bowling well. Whenever I ask him to, he is keen to deliver. The winning momentum always boosts the confidence.

Litton Das, Player of the Match: I feel good batting here. This wicket is good for batting. There was dew also. Ball came nicely on to the bat. I always feel, when you are chasing it is difficult if you start slowly.

Shuvagata Hom: We didn't bat well and that costed us. We didn't get any partnerships in the middle overs. Afif tried a little and I tried to finish. Bad day for us in the powerplay.

21:47 Local Time, 15:47 GMT, 21:17 IST: Das and Rizwan just ensured that Comilla had the chase in the bag after the first five overs. Litton attacked and ensured that run rate was never an issue. They lost a few wickets during the chase but the intent was always spot on. Chattogram were poor with the bat and that never helped them to recover. They were reduced to 6 for 78 before their skipper Hom decided to take matters in his own hands. His cameo allowed Chattogram to post a score beyond 130. Comilla have started their account and it would interesting to see what changes we get to see in the games to come for them. Chattogram continue their blow hot blow cold season as their progression reads L,W,L,W,L.
