Phangiso to Mashrafe Mortaza, SIX runs, another! The bowler goes flatter and on leg stump, but Mashrafe doesn't care. Gets down the track and mauls it to the long-on boundary as well. Flat hit

Phangiso to Mashrafe Mortaza, SIX runs, skips down to the pitch to slam a flighted delivery into the sightscreen. Mirpur roars

Phangiso to Rony Talukdar, SIX runs, hammered away! Talukdar dances down the track and heaves it away down the ground. Vicious strike, settles into the second tier stands over long-on

Duminy to Liton Das, FOUR runs, nips down the track and rolls his wrists on a flighted delivery outside off. Seemed like he was just looking for a single, but he timed the shot so very well
11.2
6
Leie to Mushfiqur Rahim, SIX runs, that's beautiful! Leie can have his hands on his head all he wants, but the inside out cover drive is one of his strengths and Mushfiqur has timed this perfectly. Abbott leaps up on the boundary to try and catch it. No such luck

Phangiso to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR runs, catch it is the cry,and oopsy, Abbott's slipped on the long leg boundary. He was running across towards square leg, forgetting the ball would pitch and spin. As he tries to redirect himself, he falls on his face and the ball dribbles to the boundary
5.6

Parnell to Soumya Sarkar, SIX runs, phew! How's that as a counterpunch. It's a shade down leg and Sarkar leans forward and swings his hands through the line. The timing is again perfect
4.5

Abbott to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR runs, gully leaps up, but it's lobbed him! Sarkar moves away from the ball and uses his wrists again to give it just enoug elevation. Still a tad risky, but he wears it well
3.6
4
Wiese to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR runs, too short and Sarkar has pummeled it away to the right of square leg. He doesn't bother keeping the ball down because he's supremely confident of his placement. The fielder goes for a big dive, he's horizontal with the ground as the ball hurtles past him
3.5

Wiese to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR runs, heaved away to long-on. Sarkar rushes down the track, has to wait a sec for the slower delivery and then directs it wide of Faf. The SA captain slides to push the ball back, but his feet were in contact with the rops
2.5
4
Parnell to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR runs, rushes at the bowler and swings away. Gets a thick outside edge that soars over the point fielder. A little streaky, but that's Tamim's way
2.2

Parnell to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR runs, all it takes is one mistake. Parnell bowls short and wide and Sarkar gets on top of it and cuts it strongly behind point. Another excellent shot.
1.3

Duminy to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR runs, smeared away! Magnificent shot from Sarkar. Full of class. Broke into that special store of timing that only left-handers can locate. Perhaps a touch overpitched, but he drives it through the covers and just admires the shot
0.5

Abbott to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR runs, slashed away to the point boundary. Just on a length, but the mistake was affording the batsman a bit too much width
