Thatโ€™s a wrap from our side as well. Thank you for joining us from all around the globe. This is Prince Suman signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Saipavan Janaki and Scorer / Analyst Paras Yadav. Do join us for the other fixtures across the globe. Until then, Ta-Ta, Bye-Bye.

Mashrafe Mortaza ( Sylhet Strikers  Captain):  "I mean if you look at the team journey was outstanding and we are playing the final and we keep in shape well and anything can happen. We took a bit of time and the momentum going for them and we need a break after that break, two overs brings into the game. Yeah, my arm is paining but teams win is everything and character shows in this situation."
Tanzim Hasan Sakib (Player of the Match): "It was a flat wicket and you have to be very disciplined and focus on this and enjoy bowling on this surface. (Slower balls) Learned from the last few games and applied this and got the results."
Nurul Hasan( Rangpur Riders Captain): "You know they played well and we tried but unfortunately lost the game but the boys worked hard and thanks to them, the coaching staff, and management. (Out) It would six that will be a different result. (Fans)I think they supported a lot and we are the young side and played well and worked hard and the coaching team also work hard for the team."
9:49 PM IST | Prince: Sylhet Strikers continue their dream run in the competition, and they now edge nearer to the silverware. They have thwarted Rangpur Riders by 19 runs in the second qualifier, and the Mashrafe Mortaza-led Sylhet Strikers will now lock horns with Comilla Victorians in the BPL 2023 Final.

In pursuit of a hefty total of 183, Rangpur Riders started on the worst possible note as the key man Sam Billings departed on the first ball of the 2nd over of the inning. That was soon followed by Shamim Hossain 14(11), who was outplayed by Rubel Hossain.

Nicholas Pooran joined forces with Rony Talukdar and the duo stabilized the innings. The left-hander Pooran attained some mighty boundaries in the middle and contributed some quick runs. However, Luke Wood broke the 34-run stand between the duo by  Pooran for 30(14).

Rangpur Riders were at 68/3 at 8.3 overs when Nurul Hasan entered the fray. The right-hander swatted  33(24) and stitched a much-needed partnership of 82 runs with Rony Talukdar and created a slender chance but it was Tanzim Hasan Sakib who brought the Sylhet Strikers back into the game by dismissing Nurul Hasan.

Following Hasan's wicket, the Rangpur Riders required 32 from the last 17 balls and the target proved a little easy for Rony Talukdar and Dasun Shanaka to chase down But Rony Talukdar got run out and the scenario was changed. Nonetheless,  Rony Talukdar orchestrated a scintillating 66(52), including 7 fours and 2 maximums, and Dasun Shanaka scored 10(9). Luke Wood was the pick of the bowlers as he extracted 3 wickets, while Tanzim Hasan Sakib and Rubel Hossain shared a couple of wickets each.

Earlier, after being invited to bat first, Sylhet Strikers posted 182 runs in 20 overs. They got a decent start as they scored 44 runs without any wickets in the powerplay. Najmul Hossain Shanto was the top contributor for Sylhet Strikers, as he scored 40 runs off 30 balls, while Mashrafe Mortaza scored 28 off 16 balls.

From the Rider's bowling point of view, Hasan Mahmud was the pick of the bowler, gave away 34 runs in his 4 overs, and pocketed 2 wickets. Dasun Shanaka picked up two wickets. Mahedi Hasan and Dwayne Bravo celebrated with a wicket each.

So, a win by 19 runs for the Sylhet Strikers as they move on to Finale. Stay tuned for the presentations.
