Thanks for joining us today. Do come back for the second ODI on Sunday. Until then, good night, ciao..

I think Tamim should have got this. No, I won't share the award with Tamim, hopefully he gets it next time, quips, Mushfiqur Rahim, Man of the Match. I dedicate the award to my wife. The preparation was good.

Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh captain: Tamim and Mushfiq batted really well, it was a good pitch to bat on. It was easy for us as a bowling unit. We just wanted to contain. It was a professional performance. This gives us the belief to win the series Thanks to the crowd for the support. I would want them to support us even when we don't perform well.

Azhar Ali, Pakistan captain: We made some mistakes in the field and dropped some catches at the wrong time and the credit goes to the Bangladesh batsmen. They got 30-40 runs extra. Rizwan batted well, we had a few positives. We will fix the mistakes and come strong in the next game.

Rafi: "after 16 years Bangladesh won against Pakistan. This was even bigger win than the first one. Congratulations Tigers!"

Ahead of the game, stand-in captain Shakib said that Bangladesh were favourites and his side rallied around to down Pakistan for the second time in ODIs, the first coming in the 1999 World Cup. After centuries from Tamim and Mushfiq led Bangladesh to 329, Azhar and Sohail laid a good base for the chase with a busy 89-run partnership. Rizwan was also impressive on debut, but the lower order imploded under scoreboard pressure, as Pakistan slumped from 217 for 4 to 250 all out.

Azweer: "Bangladesh Confidence running high after WC victory over England."

Taskin: All the boys are contributing. We are developing our skills day by day. We are in good shape. We are playing our best cricket

Shakib Al Hasan to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, Bangladesh break 16-year hoodoo with a 79-run win. Ajmal has been given out lbw, Shakib shakes hands with the umpire. Ajmal reviews. This was pushed through flat and quick from round the stumps, catches Ajmal on the front pad on the knee roll, looks like this was sliding down. Or was it clipping leg? No inner edge. Hawk-Eye shows that it would clip the top of leg. Bangladesh break the 16-year drought and record their second ODI win over Pakistan

Rubel Hossain to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, another yorker, which is dug out to point. The fielder nails a direct hit at the non-strikers' as there is a communication breakdown, but Junaid is in. Oh no, the bat is in the air. Nice, flat throw, hits the bullseye. The bat was in the air and Junaid has to depart for a duck. Poor mix-up..

Rubel Hossain to Mohammad Rizwan, OUT, Another one bites the dust, Rizwan gone for 67 off 58. He fetches the slog sweep from outside off but top-edges it in the air. Nasir runs across to his right from deep square leg and swallows it
