Khulna Tigers vs Dhaka Dominators, 24th Match
Dhaka Dominators won by 24 runs
That's all. After nearly four hours of cricket in a game that didn't even see 40 overs being bowled, we can bid farewell for today. There is a break now before we resume with a double header on Friday in the Bangladesh Premier League. Join us for those games, it's bye and goodnight for now!
Nasir Hossain: Credit to my fielders and bowlers for defending such a small total. We couldn't utilize the powerplay today with the bat, but our bowlers did brilliantly to win us this game.
Taskin Ahmed | Player of the Match: I'm very happy, this was a much needed win. Happy to contribute today. I always stick to basics and processes. The captain wanted me to bowl fast and aggressive, today I got my rewards. Just want to give my 110% everyday.
Yasir Ali: Our bowlers did a great job but our batters didn't play that well. The middle-order didn't click. It's a game of cricket and they kept getting wickets at regular intervals. If we didn't do that, we'd have won. The new guy Rana bowled really well today, but this is just one of those days.
21:59 Local Time, 15:59 GMT, 21:29 IST: What an almighty heist. Dhaka Dominators have managed to defend a target of just 108, and they have won by 24 runs. Khulna Tigers will keep thinking how this all went wrong after such a superb bowling performance, but they only have themselves to blame. Their scorecard reads like a telephone directory, as only Tamim as Yasir Ali got into double figures. The best partnership in this innings was just 21 runs, and that goes to show how Dhaka Dominators were always on the prowl. Taskin Ahmed led from the front, getting 4/9 while Nasir Hossain and Al-Amin got two apiece. Khulna just needed one batter to stick on and score big, just Soumya Sarkar did in the first innings. But everyone failed to live up to the billing today, and Khulna succumb to a very dissapointing loss. This is the third lowest total defended in BPL history. Stick around for the presentations now...
15.3 Taskin Ahmed to Nahid Rana, out Bowled!! Taskin Ahmed can't control his joy. He is running all over the field and everyone chases after him. What a win this has been!

Taskin Ahmed to Nahid Rana, THATS OUT!! Bowled!!

KLT: 84-8 after 15 overs
14.6 Al-Amin to Nasum Ahmed, out Caught by Amir Hamza!! Another one gone!! Short pitched and Nasum Ahmed goes for the pull but skies it tamely towards Hamza at short mid-wicket. Which way is this game going now? Nasum Ahmed c Amir Hamza b Al-Amin 4(4) [4s-1]
Al-Amin to Nasum Ahmed, THATS OUT!! Caught!!
One of the zinger bails have stoped zinging. So a slight delay as the umpires get that changed
14.5 Al-Amin to Nasum Ahmed, no run, full outside off, Nasum Ahmed beaten on the outside edge
14.4 Al-Amin to Nasum Ahmed, FOUR, yorker length, Nasum Ahmed drives it over the non-striker's head for a straight boundary. That should help
