    9.1 gone! And he strikes first ball. Massive moment in the game. Coming round the wicket, it was a touch short on leg stump but Porterfield goes back and flicks it straight to Raqibul at midwicket. He wasn't going to drop this one. 36/2
    5.3 gone! Bangladesh have the breakthrough and the crowd goes wild. A very full delivery almost yorked Stirling, he jabs down on it and it dribbles from his boot back towards Rahim. The batsman, meanwhile, has stumbled out of the crease and can't get back as the stumps are broken. The TV umpire is called but it was an easy decision 23/1
    18.1 huge wicket! Joyce has gone and Ashraful is celebrating wildly! Nothing shot, Joyce just turning the bat against the spin, took a leading edge and popped back to the bowler. The celebration was delirious. Bangladesh are all over this now! 75/3
    27.4 what a catch! Get the celebrations going again, Tamim is the man! Niall O'Brien tried to chip a single to square leg, got too much on it and Tamim, haring in from the boundary, dived forward full length to scoop the ball inches off the turf. Crucial wicket that, could be the one that takes the game 110/5
    24.4 Ashraful is dancing again! You'd think he's just won the tournament. As it is he snared White who played back to a ball he should have got forward to. Hung his bat out in defence and it spun back past the inside edge onto off stump 93/4
    36.4 gone! The game changes again. O'Brien can't believe what he's done. Dragged down by Shafiul, O'Brien's eyes lit up but he pulled it straight down the throat of deep square-leg 151/6
    40.1 Shafiul strikes! Huge blow and that could be it, that must be it! The crowd are deafening. Full ball on leg stump and somehow Botha contrived to play around it 168/8
    39.4 gone! Another careless shot from an Ireland batsman, but Bangladesh won't care how they get them. Was wide of off stump and he tried to sweep it and only managed to get a bottom edge into the stumps 164/7
    42.1 Shafiul does it again! Johnston has asked for a review but it looks gone, lbw prodding forward to a ball that nipped back. Yes indeed, time to celebrate, the review confirms the wicket. The light is disappearing now for Ireland 171/9
    not out
    44.6 that'll be that! Bangladesh have done it, Shafiul finishes with four as Rankin chips to short midwicket. The crowd go absolutely wild, as well they might. Halfway through the hosts were in big trouble after a shoddy batting performance but their bowlers have pulled off a vital victory 178/10
