RAR won by 6 wickets
BALL BY BALL
Another impressive runchase by Rangpur Riders has seen them chase down Khulna Titans' hefty total with three balls remaining and six wickets in hand. Alex Hales got them off to a ferocious start with a swashbuckling half century, before AB de Villiers took over while Chris Gayle bided his time. The big Jamaican eventually unleashed five maximums to reach fifty, but his wicket gave the Titans some hope heading into the final over. Rilee Rossouw kept a calm head to seal the result with a huge blow and take the Riders up to eight points. The Titans continue to languish at the bottom, they will feel like they didn't make the most of a fantastic surface for batting earlier this afternoon. .

19.2 - Y Shah to N Islam
Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Amin, appeal made for Run Out.
The Titans take the risk of bowling Yasir for the last over and it pays immediate dividends. Mithun wants to finish it in one hit but he's left stranded as Taylor has the bails off in a flash. Quality keeping, Titans in with a small chance now. .

Gayle can't get hold of this one, it's too full to get underneath it properly and Wiese is well positioned at long on. That gives the Titans a glimmer of hope, although Rossouw the new man is in sensational form. .
