In the 42nd match of the Bangladesh Premier League, Dhaka Dynamites are the winners against Khulna Titans.
At last Dhaka Dynamites survived the scare; defeating Khulna Titans by 6 wickets ensured their spot in the play offs of BPL 2019.

Apart from that, Rubel Hossain and Shakib Al Hasan exhibited dynamic bowling scalping two wickets each.
