That's the end of our coverage of this game of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. Do stay tuned to Sportskeeda for all latest updates and match commentaries. This is Rishab VM, and my colleague, Sameer signing off! Have a great time! 
What looked a game that would go down the wire at one stage turned out to be a one-sided affair! It's been a magnificent performance out in the field from Khulna. They came back very well with the ball to win this game by a convincing margin! They needed early wickets to build pressure and sure they did. Boy Shakib was just simply amazing at the beginning. It's a performance that cannot be described by words. Incredible stuff from him. It was an all-round bowling effort as all the bowlers stepped up and got wickets. 

While Mushfiqur was out there it still looked like Dhaka were in it but it absolutely fell apart once he was sent back. None of the other batsmen before him could get runs at the required rate that put pressure on him and eventually cost his wicket. None after him could do anything either. The bowling was superb and the body language shown from Khulna right from the start was so good and they kept the pressure throughout the game. 

Apart from the batting, their fielding also cost Dhaka the game. Had they not dropped those easy catches, the score might not have been close to 150 and things would have been different. Well, only if! They have a lot of thinking to do ahead as they have crashed to their third consecutive defeat of the season and are still in search of those first points. 

Khulna will take a lot of confidence from this game and it will give their campaign some much needed momentum going forward. They wrapped this game up very nicely and it shows real character. The target wasn't a big one, but these kinda ones are tricky and Dhaka faultered big time! 
Shuvagata has bowled brilliantly tonight and he will wrap it up! Dhaka have been skittled out for a mere 109 and Khulna have won this game by 37 runs! It's been a totally dominating performance from them with the ball
19.2 Shuvagata Hom to Shafiqul Islam, OUT! Shuffles across his stumps and misses a big hoick on a fuller delivery on his middle stump. He has been trapped in front and that brings us to the end of this game!
Shahidul has bowled really well! But there's a lot of drama in the 19th over! Couple of wickets, a sitter dropped, couple of no balls and a boundary to finish with! 
19.1 Shuvagata Hom to Rubel Hossain, drags the full delivery from outside off to long-on to pick up some runs
Over: 19 | Summary: 2nb Bowler: Shahidul Islam Score: 104/9
18.6 Shahidul Islam to Shafiqul Islam, FOUR! Shahidul overpitches this one outside off and Shafiqul lofts it over mid-off to finish the over with a boundary under his name!
18.6 Shahidul Islam to Rubel Hossain, full toss outside off above waist-high punched to mid-off for a single. It will be another NO BALL
18.6 Shahidul Islam to Shafiqul Islam, low full toss on the stumps. Islam drives it to long-on. It is a NO BALL!
18.5 Shahidul Islam to Rubel Hossain, swivels the slower bouncer along the ground to deep mid-wicket and brings the No.11 on strike! Will this be the end of the innings?
18.4 Shahidul Islam to Nasum Ahmed, OUT! Another miscued hoick, another opportunity, and this time it's taken at mid-off. Yet another wicket for Shahidul!
18.3 Shahidul Islam to Rubel Hossain, short ball outside off lobbed to Kayes at covers. Not too unfamiliar sight today, he's dropped a dolly
18.2 Shahidul Islam to Muktar Ali, OUT! Ali finally gets one off his bat but holes out to long-on! Didn't read the slower one and brought out the false shot!
18.1 Shahidul Islam to Muktar Ali, well-executed short ball gets too high for Ali to pull away
