Final Vitals

League meetings: Comilla Victorians won both their matches in the league stage, overcoming Dhaka Dynamites by seven runs in Dhaka on January 22, before winning a thriller by one run on February 1.

Dhaka Dynamites

Wins: 8

Losses: 6

Top score: 192 for 6 vs Khulna 

Highest conceded: 189 for 2 vs Rangpur 

X-factor: Rubel Hossain

The fast bowler with the slinging action is peaking at precisely the right moment and put in a player-of-the-match performance in the second qualifier, when his four for 23 booted Rangpur out of the tournament and cleared Dhaka's passage to the final. His yorkers and changes of pace in the slog overs have proven lethal, as 21 wickets from 14 games at a respectable economy rate of 7.37 show. 

Comilla Victorians

Wins: 9

Losses: 4

Top score: 237 for 5 vs Khulna 

Highest conceded: 186 for 6 vs Chittagong

X-factor: Evin Lewis

The West Indian is the one man in the Victorians lineup who can end the contest within 10 overs if he gets going. He missed a chunk of the season due to injury, but proved to be the last piece in Comilla's puzzle when he returned with a 49-ball 109 against Khulna in Chattogram. His 53-ball 71 against Rangpur in the first qualifier secured Comilla's final berth and he will be looking to continue his big-match exploits.
