Khulna Tigers vs Minister Group Dhaka, 2nd Match
Khulna Tigers won by 5 wkts
That's all from the opening day of the tournament. We'll see you tomorrow. Goodbye!
Rahim | Dhaka captain: First game is always some nerves out there. The way we started with the bat .. mighty conditions to bowl, heavy dew. Batting wise, pretty happy with that. Really happy for him - the Spiceman as we all know, and Talukdar played very well. Very good start but still long way to go. I'm fine (after the blow he took).
Talukdar is the Player of the Match
Mahmudullah | Dhaka captain: Batting wise we did well to get that total. Having said that, wicket was good. First few overs we leaked a few runs. Still early stage in the tournament but yes there are a few areas we need to work on. certainly at night the ball came on nicely. As I said, first few overs we gave easy boundaries.
22:13 Local Time, 16:13 GMT, 21:43 IST: A win for Khulna with an over to spare. Fletcher came out swinging in the chase, getting them off to a flier. There were contributions from Talukdar and Perera as well, and Dhaka could do little to stop the flow of runs. Hang around for the presentations.
