Rajshahi Kings raced to a 7 wicket win over Khulna Titans, chasing down the required runs with 7 balls to spare.
It was mainly thanks to the bowling of Isuru Udana 3-15 and Mustafizur Rahman 2-18 that the Kings were only chasing 118 to win and Mehidi Hasan 51 and Mominul Haque 44 put on a 2nd wicket partnership of 89 to all but bring them home, after the early loss of Mohammad Hafeez.
