Reece's 80 fleeces Kings in Vikings's final

Reece's 80 fleeces Kings in Vikings's final

Chittagong Vikings : 194 for 2 (Reece 80*, Mehidy 2-18)

Rajshahi Kings : 149 for 9 (Patel 62, Raza 4-16)

Player of the match: Luis Reece

Chittagong Vikings' 45-run win over Rajshahi Kings combined some sheen to their BPL campaign, but it still didn't take them out from bottom place. They finished the 2017 season last, with losers Rajshahi finishing one spot ahead of them at sixth. Chittagong's unlikely batting hero was Luis Reece who struck a quick-fire unbeaten 80; Luke Ronchi and Sikandar Raza also made improvement with forties of their own to help Chittagong to 194 for 2 in 20 overs.

In Rajshahi's addition outing with the ball, only Mehidy Hasan Miraz stood out with his 2 for 18 from four overs. Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammad Sami gave away 90 runs in their combined eight overs.

Samit Patel's 26-ball 62 gave Rajshahi some early push but he fell in the 10th over to dash their hopes. Raza starred with the ball, taking his maiden four-wicket haul in T20s and finishing with his best figures in the format.
