But they lost Sabbir Rahman (4) and skipper Miraz (6) in quick succession. 

Benny Howell who was the most successful batter for the Challengers went out cheaply and was followed by Afif Hossain (44 off 37)

Challengers past 140 thanks to Naeem Islam's 19-ball 25 and Shoriful Islam 12 off 6 not out at the end of the innings.

Thisara Perera was the most successful bowler for the Khulna Tigers with 3 for 18 while Kamrul Islam, Nabil Samad, Mahedi Hasan,  Seekkuge Prasanna, and Farhad Reza took one wicket apiece.
