After falling 3 wickets quickly, Mahmudullah made a partnership of 56 runs with Imrul Kayes where Kayes made the contribution with 29 runs. After then, no one could score much. Mahmudullah was out in the last over. Khulna got a fairly good collection in the cameo of 15 runs from 5 balls of Shuvagata Hom.
