Imrul Kayes receive the trophy and a big roar from the Mirpur crowd. The rest of the players join for the photographs. The party begins in Dhaka. They pose behind the 'CHAMPIONS' board. Yes, they truly are the champions and defend their Title as well.
Imrul Kayes( Comilla Victorians Captain): "Thank you so much, it has been a fantastic journey and this team was fantastic and every team wants to be like this. Yes, we are champions four times and this was the third one for me."
Mashrafe Mortaza (Sylhet Strikers Captain): "Comilla Victorians showed their best game today, first of all, I would like to congratulate them. Yes, today was not our day but things were not in our favor either. We were some 10-15 runs short of the target due to the loss of a couple of wickets in the death overs. Our bowlers didn't bowl in the right patches and we were unable to pick up wickets, which in effect put us behind in the game."
Najmul Hossain Shanto (Player of the Tournament): "Team played very well but this is not our day. We played very well throughout the tournament. I tried hard and did well in the tournament.
Player of the tournament is Najmul Hossain Shanto.
The highest run in the tournament was by Najmul Hossain Shanto (560 runs).
Highest wicket-taker of the tournament is Tanvir Islam.
The best fielder of the Tournament is Mushfiqur Rahim.
Johnson Charles (Player of the Match): "I didn't think it was a batting surface. But I spent a little time to get settle down on the surface after that ball came on the bat very well, so I started playing my natural game. You succeed once you stick to your plans. I'm happy that I was able to win it for the Comilla Victorians by leading my squad across the finish line. Litton has excelled, he is a delight to see and a true classic."
