    16.5 tries to repeat the previous stroke again, but this one was angled in towards off stump, once Simmons missed there was no way that would have missed the furniture. Umpire wants to check for the no-ball but he's fine. Excellent innings from Simmons 125/4
    8.3 slides through from middle, he goes back deep into the crease to cut but is done in by the pace, the middle stump is pegged back. 52/1
    11 excellent catch by Mohammad Sami at long-off. Sarkar looks to go down town but can't get enough power behind the stroke, got the toe end of the bat as well, the ball was dipping on Sami, who had to run in quite a bit from the boundary. He then had to dish in a full-length dive which he did to pull off that catch. Efforts like those can inspire a team 70/2
    15.4 this time he lands one right in the block hole and Shakib's gone. He swung a little too early and was completely through with the stroke when the ball reached him, ended yorking himself as the stumps were disturbed. A wicket against the run of play for Barisal, but a much-needed one. 114/3
    17.2 looked to wallop that into Chittagong, but could only hit it a few metres to the left of the bowler, who takes the catch, but not before a minor collision with Mahmudullah running in from midwicket. Thisara has perished in his quest to clear the midwicket rope 127/5
    19.4 this time, he picks the man at long-off. Too full, didn't get underneath it fully and ended up scooping it to Taijul running in from long-off. He's done his job though 158/7
    19.2 up into the night sky, the long on fielder had ages to get under that one and judge it to perfection. Rayad Emrit was mindful of the ropes just behind him, but kept his focus and watched it lands into his big hands. 152/6
    19.5 backs away, hit hard to long-off, the second was never on but they still went through. He has to make the long walk back 159/8

    20 mistimes a hit towards deep midwicket but looks to scoot for the second, but the throw from the deep to the wicketkeeper is powerful, and even though he was a few yards away from the stumps, an underarm throw finds the batsman well short 160/8

    1.4 lofted cleanly over the bowler's head but can only hit it as far as Thisara Perera at long-on. He was quite straight and that tactical placement has worked. He ran in, kept his eyes on the ball and watched it lodge in his safe hands. 3/1
    2.3 plays across the line and is trapped plumb in front. It was fired in from round the wicket, he played it with an angled bat and there was no hope once he missed it. Shakib is pumped. Seekkuge's promotion hasn't worked 10/2
    17.4 this time, Sammy redeems himself at long-on. Wow, what a catch that is. Sabbir looks to go down town again, gets enough bat on it, or nearly. It was swirling in the air for a long long time, Sammy was running in from long-on initially but moves back quickly even as the ropes are lurking in the corner, he takes it cleanly but nearly overbalances, but has the presence of mind to balance himself nicely to pull off a stunner literally 1 millimeter in front of the ropes. He nearly fell over but managed to pull all his weight on his left leg to stay inside the field of play. Is that the catch that turns it? Sabbir has done his job. As far as catches go, I don't think you would have seen too many better than this. That can surely qualify into the 2015 catches of the year longlist, if ever there was one. 141/4
    16.2 trifle short, he stays inside the crease and deflects it to short third man, but the decision to take a non-existent single proves costly as the flat throw to Shakib at the bowler's end is well collected as he breaks the stumps. Shahriar was miles short, but he's given Barisal a pathway to the final. Excellent knock, excellent partnership. 134/3
    18.4 looks to get across and loft it straight but can't time it well as Perera, at long-off, comes around to take the simplest of catches. No power behind that whatsoever. The captain is gone. Is that the game? 147/5
