That's the end of our coverage of this game in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. Stay tuned for more live updates and match commentaries! This is Rishab, along with my partner Karthik Raj, signing off
A brilliant unbeaten fifty from Liton Das sees Chattogram romp to victory! It's a comprehensive win this. They weren't chasing a lot but they still had to get them. The openers got them off to just the kind of start they would have liked to get. They almost finished the game without losing a wicket until Soumya Sarkar got out. But he left ensuring they were in touching distance. Liton Das was the highlight of this run-chase. It was one over where he smashed four boundaries off consecutive deliveries and there was no looking back. Quite a superb knock from him as he played anchor to this chase. All in all they made light work of this chase, and it's a terrific performance from Chattogram. 

Khulna couldn't have done really much. When you are defending as low a score as that in a T20 game wickets is the only way you can fight and survive! They just got one, that too when the game was as good as done. A tough ask from the bowlers. If there's somewhere they lost the game, it's been their batting. Not one batsmen took responsibility of batting through and they just fell like a pack of cards. The bowling was exceptional from Chattogram. They were just all over the batsmen, and it was a scintillating spell from Mustafizur! 

Khulna got outplayed in all departments and this a game that they would want to forget overnight, put it behind and regroup soon. However, they do have things to ponder upon and set right. They've just got to accept this defeat and learn from it. 

Chattogram can be a very proud bunch with this kind of performance! Not one moment in the game where they let the opposition get above them. Absolute domination in every aspect. They bowled really well to set this up. And when you have two of Bangladesh's present best batsmen as your openers, you know the game is as good as done once you've restricted the opposition to that total! Certainly a confidence booster and a memorable game for them
And that's the game for Chattogram! A convincing victory this. They've won with over six overs and nine wickets to spare! It's been a wonderful innings from Liton Das that has guided them in a relatively easy run-chase
