2.3

Badree to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, he has thrown it away! Another early strike for Badree as the batsman drives this firmly to mid-off where Bravo takes a good low catch diving to his left. Tamim got a lot of timing on that, but no elevation

Keeper standing up again

3.1

Santokie to Anamul Haque, OUT, this is wonderful work by Ramdin! Super quick hands from the keeper as he whips the bails in no time.. The batsman came forward to push, missed the ball going across him.. By the time he realised anything, the bails had been taken off with his back foot in the air

Anamul Haque st †Ramdin b Santokie 10 (14m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

West Indies are making an impact straightaway in the field. Excellent bowling by Santokie too - he kept it a touch slow

Shakib comes in

3.2

Santokie to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, it gets worse for Bangladesh! Absolutely brilliantly disguised stunning delivery! Another slower one outside off, another one that cuts a bit after pitching..

Santokie is on a hat-trick. Bangladesh captain is here. no slip

Ramdin has done some damage to his hands with the last take.. he is getting some medical attention..He is fine now..two red pills do the job

3.5

Santokie to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, length delivery at normal pace outside off, the batsman steers it down to third man for a single

    • S Badree 3-0-13-1

Sammy comes in. Simmons takes the gloves as Ramdin goes off..

Ben: "Amazing that Santokie isn't good enough to play first-class cricket. Is it just that WI doesn't tend to go for medium pacers. In NZ or England he would be playing first class regularly."

    • SP Narine 1-0-4-0
9.1

Narine to Mominul Haque, OUT, top-edge! Santokie can't do anything wrong and Narine is among wickets already. With the pressure of the required rate, Mominul goes for a sweep without getting closer to the pitch of the delivery and we have seen there is good bounce on this wicket. he gets a big top edge that is taken by the fielder at short fine leg easily

Mominul Haque c Santokie b Narine 16 (37m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

9.6

Narine to Sabbir Rahman, 1 run, waits on the back foot and dabs the flatter delivery towards midwicket

Shan Fastian: "Aren't We seeing more amount of catch being dropped in this World cup? I think there are ball magnets in the Ground installed or something wrong with the lights."

End of over 10 (6 runs) Bangladesh 57/4 (115 runs required from 60 balls, RR: 5.70, RRR: 11.50)

    • DJ Bravo 1-0-11-0

Badree comes back.. RR well over 11

10.1

Badree to Sabbir Rahman, OUT, another one goes down! Sabbir reads the googly alright but he pulls it straight to Sammy at midwicket... the fielder takes the catch and drops the ball down immediately as he has hurt his finger.. But I think he held it for enough time for this to be counted..

Sabbir Rahman c Sammy b Badree 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

No. 7 already.. Mahmudullah comes in

10.2

Badree to Mahmudullah, 1 run, he waits on the back foot and dabs it to point for a single

10.3

Badree to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, un-be-li-evable! Another one for Badree. The captain has to go. It was short , it was wide and it's the catch of the day at point by Bravo.. Mushy got a fair bit of bat on that, but Bravo flies to his right and pulls this inches off the ground.. Super one-hander this one..

Mushfiqur Rahim c Bravo b Badree 22 (38m 22b 2x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Adnan Ozair: "Looks like Nasser Hussain will be be missed. He has played some crucial innings for Bangladesh in such situations... I would bet on him doing that again today (if he was playing) "

Ziaur the big hitting Rahman is here

10.4

Badree to Ziaur Rahman, 1 run, lots of air on this one, the batsman takes it on the full and drives it down to long off

10.5

Badree to Mahmudullah, no run, skidder on the middle stump from Badree, defended back down the pitch

10.6

Badree to Mahmudullah, OUT, make it four for Badree! This is a soft one.. The batsman looks to cut and gets a faint edge to the keeper..Extra bounce does the job. These are his best figures in T20s now

Mahmudullah c †Simmons b Badree 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Andrew: "India's inexplicable experiment with Yuvraj the other day into even more focus now; WI's NRR is going to shoot through the roof, at this rate."

11.4

Narine to Ziaur Rahman, 1 run, and another one, this time he gets some bat and takes a single to cover

Siddharth: "This abject performance from Bangladesh comes as no surprise really. When your 2 top players make comments like "don't have too many expectations from us" and "we are here to give other teams a hard time", instead of talking about winning games, what else is to be expected?"

11.5

Narine to Sohag Gazi, no run, another wrong-un, another one beats the outside edge

15.6

Narine to Sohag Gazi, no run, beautiful legspinner! good amount of turn and completely bamboozles the batsman as it beats his flick.. that missed the outside edge

Rishi: "Cant help thinking the problem for Bangladesh is they have been burdened with the expectations of a top tier cricketing team without the performances to show for it. Players just dont seem to be enjoying what they are doing. I wonder if Musfiqur's constant press tirades against his own players weighs them down too"

Bravo to Mashrafe Mortaza, FOUR, slower delivery, another thick edge, this one is fine on the off side and runs down to the boundary

Jon: "@Abhishek: I don't think it's fair to judge the Full Members or the Associates based on T20 results. It's an entertaining format, but it's the one most likely to produce unrealistic results. Netherlands for instance are not as bad as they were against SL, but their performance against Ireland would have been miraculous for any side."

Wonderful work from the West Indies bowling attack to complete the rout! It started off with Badree dismissing the dangerous Tamim, then those dual strikes from Santokie pulled the rug from Bangladesh's feet.. It was a downward spiral for the home side. Badree ended up with his best figures, Santokie picked up three, Narine was unplayable. Good win for the defending champions after the setback in the first game.

Dwayne Smith, who is the Man of the Match, says, "We have a good bowling attack, so it was important to put the runs on the board. Well done to our bowlers and our fielders. we had a very bad first game so we went and spent time in the nets to work hard on our mistakes. I am glad to see that Santokie performed well and hope he goes from strength to strength."

Darren Sammy says, "When you play cricket, the team that plays better wins. Much better game for us. Chris and Smithy played well, then our bowlers bowled fantastically well. We started off really well, Smith had to really graft. So he gave us the platform. The bowlers then bowled well. It is important that we won and it also boosted our NRR. Chris, this innings, he didnt score at the strike rate which we are used to, but the fact that he was there was important. The Bangladeshi captain brought Shakib very late because of him. In the next couple of games, i have no doubt he will get to his zone. I am not worried about him. The conditions are for slower bowling. Santokie and Badree started off very well. It is hard to leave someone like Ravi Rampaul out, but you saw what Santokie did. it is good to have that sort of bench strength."

Mushfiqur Rahim says, "It was a disappointing effort - first with our fielding, because we gave away a lot of cheap runs. To chase 170 you need a good start, but we lost wickets early and it is difficult from there on. Our bowling was good, but our fielding let down as we gave away 20 extra runs.. we need bit better shot selection. If you lose three early wickets, you are on a back foot. It hurts (the recent losses) but the credit should also go the opposition players."

That is the end of our coverage on ball-ball-ball, but plenty of analysis to come through. Join us tomorrow.. Ciao ciao
