Plays of the day from the second ODI between Bangladesh and West Indies in Khulna

Darren Sammy stood motionless with his left hand out for about five seconds after dropping Mushfiqur Rahim off his own bowling, when the Bangladesh captain was on 8. The normally jovial Sammy was deadpan after his mistake.
The duel between Chris Gayle and offspinner Sohag Gazi is one of the highlights of West Indies' tour. And for the first time, Gayle resisted attacking the rookie bowler. He was on strike at the start of Gazi's second over and he either defended or left deliveries alone to play out a maiden.
Gayle's missile of a straight hit in the sixth over crashed into the ankle of the bowler, Mashrafe Mortaza. Four runs were saved but Mortaza needed treatment. In his next over, Mortaza had Gayle edging a slog to Mushfiqur, but the send-off was with a wince that was a reminder of the blow from the over before.
In the 32nd over, Tamim completed Bangladesh's victory with his second impressive catch in two games. As Sunil Narine tried to chip the ball over his head, Tamim jumped at cover, stretched out his hands, and the ball settled in his grab. In the previous game, he had back-pedalled to take a catch at long-on to remove Gayle.
