Commentary

That's it from me then, as always I am Suneer Chowdhary and I must say that the comments tonight made for some really interesting reading. Cannot publish all of them because of time constraints but rest assured I read them all, will be back for tomorrow's game, which I hope will be a thriller. Ciao!

For all the criticism that is coming Bangladesh's way, it must be said that the series is tied at two games all. They have won the same number of games as the West Indies and given that the tourists had come off a World T20 victory and a couple of Test wins, it is a good show. That said the momentum will definitely be with the West Indian side given that they have won at Dhaka batting and bowling first.

Presentation:

Rahim bowlers did a good job, we dropped too many catches and that is where we lost out, the wicket was not too difficult to chase but we collapsed at the start. all the fielders tried hard, but too many mistakes made, Sammy played really well. Knew they would come hard with the new ball but failed to step up. We have one more chance to win the series tomorrow.

Sammy, man-of-the-match the way the wicket played, Bangladesh bowled well to our batsmen, runs on the board is runs on the board and we bowled really well. I was due for a performance like and happy I contributed to my team's success. Hope to win the last game and end the series on a high. We need to go with a win-at-all-costs attitude, improving our do-or-die attitude.

Ravi B: "This is the Bangladesh team we all are getting used to. Loads of promise in one match and a meek surrender in the other one. Will they ever win matches consistently?"

Coolblood: "No more tears, no more pain, same old song, over and over again, Well played West Indies!!!"

End of a good game, although a bit one-sided in the end. Bangladesh will be ruing their top-order collapse that left them at 13/5 before one had blinked. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah fought hard but there was too much to be done for them in the end and they fell away once the Bangladeshi captain fell.

Credit where due, the West Indian pace bowlers did an excellent job at the top. It wasn't as if a lot of rash strokes were played, just that the Bangladeshi batsmen were almost stunned by the sudden change in the pitch's behaviour - swing, seam, pace.

Sammy led by example, he got himself a smacking half-century when the chips were down, and then he ended with 3/26 in his eight overs. I will be very surprised if someone else gets the MoM award.

Smith to Abdur Razzak, OUT, given out, caught in the slips it was on the middle and went through quickly and seemed to have gotten an inside edge on to his pads, popped up for the slips to take a simple catch! Oh wait, the umpire has given it out lbw, but there did seem to be an inside edge, one way or the other he was out, so the right decision was given there.

END OF OVER:
34 | 3 Runs | BDESH: 136/9
