Man of the match
It was a great match and we needed to score at least 15-20 runs extra because of the dew in the second innings. All the guys chipped in and that shows the character of the team. The bowlers too did a fantastic job. The wicket was true, but you still need to execute your shots in the gaps. I had a great night and will look to carry this on in the future as well. As we go to Dhaka we need to rectify a few mistakes out there. We are looking forward to going to Chittagong too after Dhaka.Finally, Chittagong Vikings scored highest on BPL-19 and won by 26 runs against Khulna Titans on the 22nd match of BPL-19.
