Summary Scorecard

That concludes the proceedings for today. The BPL action continues tomorrow, do join us back for all the thrills and spills. Until then, it's a goodbye and goodnight from us here.

Kayes: Our bowlers did a great job. Our batting didn't click, but we'll do well in the next game. He (Steve Smith) can't play, he's injured his elbow. Our openers batted really well, that was a big plus. Our middle order need to take more responsibilty, we will bounce back well in the next match.

Afridi, Man of the Match: I was warming up to bat (smiles). I had some pain in my knee, I kept it simple today. There was no demons in the wicket, it was a good pitch to bat.

Mehidy: I think 125 was not enough, we lost back-to-back wickets. Udana did really well, we couldn't string a decent partnership with the bat. If we had scored 20 more with the bat, the bowlers would've made a match out of this.

So, despite a little wobble towards the end, Comilla romp home with 8 balls to spare. They had a great opening partnership which was worth 65 runs between Lewis and Anamul. After the former's departure, Tamim joined Anamul and both kept ticking the scorecard by knocking it around. Just when things were looking a bit rosy for the Kings, Tamim threw his wicket away to Mehidy and that allowed Rajshahi to make a comeback into the contest. The victorians lost four wickets quickly but Afridi and Dawson batted sensibly in the final few overs to take them home.

18.4 Mustafizur to Afridi, SIX, carved over point and Afridi seals it in his signature style for his team. Comilla win by 5 wickets

18.3 Mustafizur to Dawson, 1 run, gets forward to stab, skews it off the outer half to third man and levels the scores

18.2 Mustafizur to Afridi, 1 run, steered away to third man

18.1 Mustafizur to Afridi, no run, full outside off, Afridi swings and misses

17.6 Udana to Afridi, 1 run, slower short ball outside off, pulled away to deep square leg

17.5 Udana to Dawson, 1 run, back of the hand slower ball outside off, punched to cover

17.4 Udana to Dawson, no run, shortish, cut to point

17.3 Udana to Dawson, FOUR, Comilla inch closer to victory. Half-volley outside off, Dawson gets his body weight forward and drives it past mid-off

17.2 Udana to Dawson, no run, stays leg-sidish, dabs it to point

17.1 Udana to Dawson, FOUR, pressure releaser! Short and outside off, Dawson goes back and slashes it past point

Isuru Udana [2.0-0-10-0] is back into the attack

16.6 Mustafizur to Dawson, 1 run, oh! Just short of mid-off. Dawson checks his drive, uppishly and it bounces in front of Sarkar

16.5 Mustafizur to Dawson, no run, appeal for lbw, shake of the head from the umpire. Might have pitched outside leg. Full and straightens enough to miss Dawson's flick and strike him on the back pad

16.4 Mustafizur to Afridi, 1 run, risky from Afridi. Places it intentionally in between slip and the keeper

16.3 Mustafizur to Dawson, 1 run, edged and bursts through Mehidy's fingers at wide slip. Dawson goes for the drive and outside-edges it, fortunately gets away. Rahman is fuming
