Bangladesh won by 6 wickets (with 62 balls remaining)

Mashrafe to Taylor

The weather looks excellent. The pitch will be slower and lower as the game goes on. Bat first will be a good option but Bangladesh have taken the other option.

There is another change in the Bangladesh team, Naeem Islam comes in for Mahmudullah. Shaikib Al Hasan must be a happy man, gets the two players whom he wanted in the team.

Tanzir: "After Shakib grumbled that his chosen players were not selected for the 1st ODI, I read in one newspaper this morning that the Selectors had decided to give in to his demands. I though there would be at least 3 if not 4 changes in today's match. But I see only Ash lost out to Rock. Hmm! I wonder if Shakib did actually get the players that he wanted. "
