4.6 this time taken. Mustafizur takes it cleanly this time. Full delivery outside off, Mustafa tries to go over the top but fails to find adequate connection. Off the outside half to third man. Big wicket 25/2
    1.3 always bound to happen. Full outside off, the ball moving away from the batsman and Kaleem tries to hit that over mid-on. Awful shot selection and Kaleem pays the price. Off the toe end to mid-on for an easy take. Just the start UAE did not need, but Bangladesh will take it. 2/1
    7.1 gone. The offcutter works yet again. Fullish delivery on middle and leg, Shahzad tries to work to the leg side and closes the bat face way too early. Off the leading edge, spoons up and Mustafizur takes a dolly. UAE in big trouble now 34/4
    6.1 taken, big wicket for Bangladesh. Full delivery on off, a bit of away movement. Anwar goes back but gets a thick leading edge which flies to point who takes a great diving catch. UAE in trouble, again 33/3
    15.3 bowled im. Full on off, Usman plays down the line but the ball moves just enough to beat the outside edge of Usman and rattle into off stump. End of a determined innings 71/9
    7.2 another one. These offcutters befuddling the batsmen. Another offcutter, another leading edge, another wicket. Full on leg, the new batsman looks to flick into the leg side and the leading edge carries to mid-on this time. 34/5
    10.5 he has stepped on his own wicket. Mahmudullah fires one flat on leg, Javed flicks it nicely to short fine leg but slips over and his back foot crashes into the stumps. Symbolic of UAE's innings 45/6
    11.2 yikes, stumped by a mile. Shakib saw the batsman advancing and slowed it way down, the ball pitched, gripped and ripped past the outside edge. The batsman doesn't bother to look back 46/7
    12.5 Haider goes now. Tossed up on off, Haider comes down and drives straight to cover. Mortaza takes an easy catch. 55/8
    17.4 that will be it. Slower delivery outside off, the ball rips past the outside edge again and Raza is way down the track. The keeper whips off the middle stump from the ground itself. Bangladesh have a 51-run win 82/10
