10.30pm: Right, it's been fun and frolics, as always. The Tigers have roared and have a chance to maintain their unbeaten home record when the teams head to Chittagong. David Hopps' report should be your next stop and we'll be back for more on Wednesday... Joins us then. Thanks for your comments, cheerio!

10.20pm: Time for the presentations, starting with England captain Jos Buttler: "I don't know what disappoints me the most, I think we were a bit tentative about it as a side, we wanted to come out on the front foot and take it on. We thought that was chaseable, we bowled well up front but it was a good wicket and 240 was attainable. It wasn't easy batting early on, we bowled fantastically, a really good bowling performance. [Reaction to dismissal?] I was just disappointed in the way they celebrated, it's an emotional game. We backed up the bowling today, with only one day in between. It's been tough, we had high hopes of winning and going 2-0. [Conditions?] The guys stuck at it and there've been no complaints."

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza is unsurprisingly named Man of the Match: "Congratulations to the boys, it wasn't much of a total but we could defend. If you look at the the other match, to come back was really professional. [Batting?] I just slog but it helps the team. I'm more happy that I got some wickets. The wicket was not gripping much and I just tried to play my natural shots and it came off the right areas of the bat. If you can take early wickets, it's always going to be tough [to chase]. Mahmuddulah's played really well over the last year and a half, Nasir came back in and did well today. [Series level] Sets it up nicely for us, let's see what happens."

10.15pm: Bangladesh level the series at 1-1, setting things up nicely for the decider on Wednesday. Looks like there were some comments exchanged again at the end there, Ben Stokes in discussion with Tamim Iqbal from the looks of it; whatever happened during that Buttler dismissal has definitely irked England. But that aside, this was Mashrafe's match, a blunderbuss 44 from 29 lifting Bangladesh to a winning score and following that up with 4 for 29, his second-best ODI figures. Having lost such in such a demoralising way on Friday, and then being inserted on a slow pitch when they wanted to bowl, this was quite a comeback.

"Thanks Ram for jinxing it," chortles Ruhul, "see you again next match :D"

Mashrafe Mortaza to Ball, OUT, full on the stumps, Ball slogs it up into the Dhaka night sky... taken running in off the boundary! Bangladesh have sealed the deal! Nasir held his nerve to swallow the chance, it was a cutter and too good for Ball. Captain Mashrafe punches the air, he's been the man with bat and ball today

"Cricinfo keeps ignoring my comment," whispers Ram. "I was confident about an English win even while Shakib and Imrul were batting. Again today BD is going to lose. Mark my words"

Shafiul Islam to Ball, FOUR runs, and that's why! Not quite all the way but Ball uses those long levers to send a meaty swat over extra cover, one-bounce four

"Ball's cricinfo profile states that he has a 'penchant for six-hitting'," reports Abhu. This could still get interesting then...
