So, that also brings an end to our coverage of this game between the Comilla Victorians and the Fortune Barishal. For now, this is me Hiren Kumar signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Ayan Chatterjee and scorer/analyst Yogesh Kumar. CHEERS!!
Litton Das (Comilla Victorians Captain): "Yes, definitely. We knew scoring 160-170 we needed contributions from everyone. Imrul played well and then Forde and Jaker with the finish. We bowled well after 10 overs. We bowled well in the powerplay and still got to improve our fielding and bowling. Mustafizur was great and he is our key bowler for us. We were confident and belief that we could chase this down. Glad we did. Khushdil played well and then Matthew with the finish was great to see. Happy with the win. But have areas to work on. Thank You."  
Matthew Ford (Player of the Match): "It is a really good feeling. It is our first win of the season and the boys did plan well after the loss in the first game. We never lost hope in the dressing room and we had guys who could come in and win. The wicket is pretty good and we liked that. Yeah, we work as a team and we improve together and we will look to gel well as a team."
Tamim Iqbal (Fortune Barishal Captain): "It happens. I am on the other side of the game. We have got ourselves to blame. So, many catches are being missed. We cannot do that and we deserve to lose. We gave away too many deliveries and we allowed them to win the game. This game we should have won if we are being brutally honest. We need to learn how to bowl with dew. Today was not that much dew there. So, we deserved to lose. I won't be too harsh on my team and hope to bounce back in the next games and the next leg in Sylhet."  
21:48 IST and 22:18 local time: Phew!! What a game of cricket we have witnessed. Those 13* runs off Matthew Ford were as crucial as a fifty. With this win, Comilla Victorians register their first win of the season.

Opting to bowl first, the Victorians were brilliant in the powerplay and picked up 3 early wickets inside the powerplay. Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim then built up a good partnership out in the middle before the former being dismissed for 42 by Mustafizur Rahman. Mushfiqur Rahim went on to play a brilliant knock of 62 runs off 44 balls.

With the ball, Mustafizur Rahman (3/32) and Roston Chase (2/25) were the pick of the bowlers for the Victorians. Their bowlers were expensive in the middle phase of the game but did well to pull back things at the backend.

Coming the chase, the Victorians were off to a decent start but then lost two quick wickets in the 4th over and were put under some pressure. Skipper Imrul Kayes was outstanding in the middle order and held up one end firmly. He went on to score 52 off 41 but could not finish the game. Jaker Ali also assisted him well and scored 23* off 20 balls. In the end, It was Matthew Ford who came set from the dressing room and scored 13* off 4 to seal the game for his team.

For Fortune Barishal, they fought well till the end but will surely not be happy with their bowling performance. Dunith Wellalage was the only bowler looked good for them and he ended with the figures of 3/26 in his 4 overs. Their death bowling was poor today. Stay tuned for the presentations
19.5 K Ahmed to M Forde
1 That's it. Comilla has won the game.  Fuller length around off, Forde drives it through the covers for a single and the Victorians win the game by 4 wickets with a ball to spare to get their first win in the competition. Heartbreak for Fortune Barishal as they go down fighting. 
Just 1 more run needed off the last 2 balls. The dug out is pumped up. They are already celebrating
19.4 K Ahmed to M Forde
4 FOUR! Fuller and wide outside off, Forde drives it hard through the covers as the ball races away to the cover fence for a boundary. Matthew Forde you beauty. 
Hang on, the game is not over yet says Matt Forde.
19.3 K Ahmed to M Forde
6 SIX! What a strike from Forde. Comilla are back in the game. Fuller and wide outside off, Forde reaches out and goes inside out over extra covers as the ball sails into the stands for the maximum. What a strike from the big man. 
11 needed off 4 
19.2 K Ahmed to M Forde
2 Fuller length slower ball around off, Forde drills it down the ground to the mid-on region for a couple of runs. 
A runout check sent upstairs. Its OUT and Khushdil Shah has to depart.
19.1 K Ahmed to J Ali
W Fuller and wide outside off, Jaker swings and misses to the keeper. They try to sneak in a bye and looks like this will be OUT. The third umpire has been called into action and the batter is short of his ground. Big wicket for the Barishal team as Khushdil is run out at the start of the over. 
13 needed of the final 6 balls. Khaled Ahmed will bowl the final over of the game. Some tense faces in the Victorians' dugout. One extra fielder will be inside the ring as Barishal have not bowled their 20 overs on time.
