Comilla Victorians defeated Sylhet Sunrisers by four wickets thanks to Sunil Narine's late outburst. It concludes the Sylhet leg of the BPL 2022, in which the host side lost all three matches, but they were in the battle for a long time in each of them, as they were in this encounter.

After Narine smashed 19 runs off the penultimate over bowled by debutant AKS Swadhin, Comilla triumphed with a ball to spare. Abu Hider scored the game-winning runs on the game's second-to-last ball.

Colin Ingram, who scored 89, had yet another great score in a losing cause as a result of the result. Ingram and Anamul Haque put on a 105-run opening partnership for Sylhet, with Ingram scoring 46 off 33 balls. However, the remaining batters were unable to match the big-hitting openers, scoring only 47 runs in the final five overs.

Ingram resumed where he left off the day before. Against Fortune Barishal, he made 90 off 49 balls, but it took him a little longer this time to get to 89 off 63 balls. His talent to thread the gap on the off side was a trademark of this innings, as it was on Tuesday. Apart from a couple of sixes down the ground, he hit five fours through point. Tanvir Islam, a left-arm spinner, was particularly vulnerable to Ingram, who struck him for five boundaries.

With his 65 from 50 balls, Mahmudul Hasan Joy led Comilla's chase until the 18th over. Apart from a pair of cover-driven fours and two sixes over long-on, he smashed wonderfully through backward point for four boundaries. Moeen Ali, who survived a stumping chance off his first ball and went on to knock 46 from 35 balls, adding 82 runs for the third wicket.

Narine took over when Alauddin Babu withdrew Joy, smashing Swadhin for two fours and a six in the 19th over. Imrul Kayes, the captain of Comilla, contributed 16 off eight balls to the pursuit.

On the other hand, Sylhet captain Bopara's BPL campaign has continued to be a disappointment, with only 57 runs in seven innings. There have been a few times, including today's match, when he's had some breathing room to go after bowling, but he's always fallen to Narine. Bopara's worst season came in 2016, when he only allowed 35 runs in five innings.
