This is it from us for this game of the Bangabandhu T20 league. Stay tuned for all the updates as we bring you more live action from cricket around the globe! For now, it's me Rishab, and my colleague, Navjeevan, signing off! 
So a convincing win in the end for Chattogram! They weren't chasing a lot and this was pretty much anticipated. A superb start from Shyakat Ali and Saumya Sarkar! Just what they needed in this chase. They were also fortunate as a few catches went down, had they been taken, the result may have been different, who knows? Anyways, they batted well and probably it was that opening stand that pretty much killed the game. 

Barishal did eventually get the wicket but they couldn't take advantage and build pressure. Never did the Chattogram batsmen look under pressure chasing this score. They didn't give wickets away like Barishal did and that was the difference. The bowlers lacked intent to be more attacking, catches going down also added to it getting more difficult from them. The intensity wasn't there and the body language wasn't positive either. 

Soumya Sarkar played a superb knock anchoring the chase. He looked so elegant with his shots and batted beautifully. He would have liked to finish the game, disappointing the way he got out. But he'd done enough to ensure it would be easy from there on. Barishal got off to a great start with the bat but they just failed to capitalise and lost their way. They should have ended up scoring 170+ they way they had started, and that is where they probably lost the game and the momentum as well. 

Chattogram made four changes today and it worked well for them. Good to give the bench a chance when you've already qualified. They put up another convincing performance and consolidate their position at the top. Barishal needed to win this badly, but it's just been disappointing from them. It leaves them in a position where they now have to win their final game with a good run-rate, and then hope for Rajshahi to lose their final game to go through. Not the ideal situation you'd like to be in. They've got a lot to improve upon! 
Over: 19 | Summary: 0 1 0 4 Bowler: Salauddin Sakil Score: 153/3
And that's the game for Chattogram! They win with seven wickets and 8 balls to spare! It's been a convincing win from them and they just continue to consolidate their position at the top of the table. Barishal needed to win tonight to keep their hopes alive. But it now gets tougher for them!

Good batting there from Chattogram. Not looking in a hurry. They're taking the ones and twos and doing it easily, and rightly so. They have no reason to hurry. Just 2 needed off 12 now

Another decent over. Taskin bowled well but he's given away a boundary to finish the over. Chattogram are doing it quite easily. They're just a couple of hits away probably from finishing this game. It's 6 needed off 18
