GEMCON KHULNA HAVE DONE IT! THEY'RE THE CHAMPIONS OF THE INAUGRAL BANGABANDHU T2O CUP!!

A cracking game of cricket between the two sides comes to an end as Gemcon Khulna have come out on top in this nail-biting final.

Khulna struggled to get off to a good start in the game but a captain's knock from Mahmudullah got them to 155 at the end of their 20 overs.  Chattogram will perhaps look back at their bowling changes and regret not giving Nahidul Islam a fourth over but going with Soumya Sarkar instead, whose last over gave away 17 runs.

Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar had got Chattogram to a decent start before they lost their way. Shyakat Ali's valiant half century was not enough to see his side through, but it was Al-Amin Hossain's dazzling spell that won the game for Khulna.

GKH beat GGC by 5 wickets.
19.6 Shahidul Islam to Nahidul, SIX! Short of a length on middle and gets a mighty piece of willow on that. No effect on the result, though. Khulna bench run into the pitch to join their mates for a well deserved celebration. 
19.5 Shahidul Islam to Nadif, full on leg, slightly slower, chipped just short of long on.
19.4 Shahidul Islam to Shykat Ali, OUT! TIMBER!!! ON A HATTRICK! Full and fast, on the stumps, Ali goes for the big ol' heave and misses by a long way. Stumps: smashed. 
19.3 Shahidul Islam to Mosaddek Hossain, OUT! CHANGE OF PACE has worked! back of the hand ball that just seemed to float into middle stump, Hossain, who was ready having made all the room in the world, caught that ball on the full toss and tonked it with no timing down long-on's throat
19.2 Shahidul Islam to Mosaddek Hossain, full and fast on off, off-driven from the toe of the bat to wide long off, they scamper through to complete a brace 
19.1 Shahidul Islam to Shykat Ali, full on leg, squeezed away to square leg for just one 
That was a lovely penultimate over by Mahmud Hasan but his last delivery has let him down! He ends his spell with figures of 30/1.
Mosaddek Hossain has got two much needed boundaries and given Chattogram a glimmer of hope!

Who will hold their nerve, as this cracking final comes down to the last over?

16 needed of 6 balls.
Over: 18 | Summary: Bowler: Score:
18.6 Mahmud Hasan to Mosaddek Hossain, SIX! SWEET MAMA! in the slot on off, Hossain makes room for it and nails that lofted drive to perfection. That ball flew at lightning speed off the bat and over the long-on fence! This time, what batting!
18.5 Mahmud Hasan to Mosaddek Hossain, BOWLING, BOY! Yorker on leg, no chance to score off that one. Superb stuff by the kid. Bunted back to the bowler. 
18.4 Mahmud Hasan to Shykat Ali, FIELDED BY THE OLD MAN MORTAZA! full on off, that was hammered away, veteran Mahsrafe dives at cover to save a certain boundary 
18.3 Mahmud Hasan to Mosaddek Hossain, short of length on middle, heaved with zilch timing to long on for a single 
18.2 Mahmud Hasan to Mosaddek Hossain, FOUR! BLUNDER by the long-on fielder! Full on middle, straight driven crisply! What was to be a two, became a four thanks to some sloppy fielding 
18.1 Mahmud Hasan to Shykat Ali, full and fast on leg, squirted away on the leg side for a single 
Shykat Ali continues to fight until the very end as he completes his half century but he'll need Mosaddek Hossain to get a few hits away to take the pressure off. Can Ali do for Chattogram what Mahmudullah did for Khulna?

29 needed from 12.
17.6 Shohidul Islam to Shykat Ali, full on off, Ali, camped on the back foot, heaves it to long on for a single. FIFTY for Ali! Solid knock. 
17.5 Shohidul Islam to Mosaddek Hossain, slow and short, clubs it with a horizontal blade down the ground, no pace whatsoever to work with on that one 
17.4 Shohidul Islam to Shykat Ali, GOOD ball! fast and almost yorker length on middle, Ali plays all over that one, inside edge to short fine who fields that expertly 
17.3 Shohidul Islam to Mosaddek Hossain, full on off, drives it nicely on with an open face, one bounce to point
