Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Khulna Titans jumped to second spot after their 14-run win over table-toppers Comilla Victorians, who can still extend their lead as they have a game left against Sylhet Sixers on Wednesday.

Batting first, Khulna posted 174 for 6, with Nazmul Hossain Shanto top-scoring with 37. But the real push came from Ariful Haque and Carlos Brathwaite, who helped them punch 50 runs in the last three overs. Al-Amin took three wickets but was very expensive, giving away 52 runs.

Comilla started well with the bat, but a lack of big hits in the middle overs squeezed them out of the game. Shoaib Malik and Marlon Samuels slammed some sixes in the last few overs, but it was too little too late.
