Phew now that was a game of cricket. Bangladesh win the game by one, yes one run. It also means that they take a winning 2-0 lead in the series.

Nasir Hossain has just been named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 50 in the Bangladesh innings.

The good news is that we get to do this all again tomorrow, when we have the final game of this series. That just leaves me to wish you all a good night and this is Justin Smyth saying goodnight from Belfast
