The much anticipated comeback of David Warner, batting for Sylhet Sixers, would have been a disappointment for his fans as he scored only 14, however, the team posted a respectable 127-8 in their 20 overs, with Nicholas Pooran 41 top scoring - Mohammad Shahid 2-22, Mohammad Saifuddin 2-13, Mahedi Hasan 2-24 were the pick of the Comilla Victorians bowlers, although, the evergreen Shahid Afridi took 1-29 as well.
In reply, Comilla Victorians won by 4 wickets with one ball to spare, thanks to a swashbuckling 39* by ‘boom boom’ Shahid Afridi, which included 5x4s and 2x6s. Sandeep Lamichhane 2-16 was the pick of the Sylhet Sixers bowlers.
