Commentary

10.35 pm Bangladesh have won both their qualifying matches so far. Shakib was on fire today, clouting 37 off 18 balls. Nepal shouldn't be too upset, though. The conditions - heavy dew - were difficult to content with.

Al-Amin Hossain is the Man of the Match for his spell of 4-0-17-2. He bowled a terrific final over to keep Nepal to 126 for 5, after Bangladesh had won the toss.

Pudota: "That's childish from Shakib. As a professional cricketer, he has to show that he is above such simple things as refusing to take winning run to hit a six next ball. He could have been out trying to do that."

Jacob Daniel: "What Shakib has done is increased the run rate after securing the win...plus the entertainment value...so I can understand what he has done."

Paras Khadka says Nepal needed 140-plus to challenge Bangladesh in these conditions. He says Nepal got stuck and didn't rotate strike in the middle, and lacked the big hits too. Nepal didn't hit a single six.

Rohit : "Give him [Shakib] a break. Its just a warm-up game. What use is it if you don't actually flex your muscles a bit. Its called warm-up for a reason, I believe."

Mushfiqur says the toss was important because of the dew, it was very difficult to grip the ball. "shakib is a champion, he knows how he can hit ... there were plenty of balls and ... it was great to see ..."

Thank you for all your emails today. That's all we've got for you from the commentary team. See you tomorrow for another double-header. Cheers.

Sagar Pun to Shakib Al Hasan, SIX runs, and he's done it, I'm not sure I like what Shakib did there but what do I know! He ends the game by heaving one over the long-on boundary ... Bangladesh win with 27 balls to spare

Sagar Pun to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, that kept so low and Shakib was good enough to keep it out, he refuses the single! The run was there for the taking but he evidently wants to hit a big one
