Phew now that was a game of cricket. Bangladesh win the game by one, yes one run. It also means that they take a winning 2-0 lead in the series.

Nasir Hossain has just been named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 50 in the Bangladesh innings.

The good news is that we get to do this all again tomorrow, when we have the final game of this series. That just leaves me to wish you all a good night and this is Justin Smyth saying goodnight from Belfast

Mahmudullah to Johnston, SIX runs, Johnston opens his shoulders and hits the ball high over cow corner. Doesnt matter though because Bangladesh win by 1 run.
Mahmudullah to Joyce, OUT, its nearly all over now. Joyce had to hit the ball and it went straight to Tamim at long-off. Only one ball left

EC Joyce c Tamim Iqbal b Mahmudullah 41 (66m 44b 1x4 0x6) SR: 93.18

The batsmen crossed so Joyce is on strike

Mahmudullah to Poynter, OUT, wicket for Bangladesh. Poynter came down the ground and hit it straight down Shakib's throat at long-on. What a time for a wicket

AD Poynter c Shakib Al Hasan b Mahmudullah 12 (15m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Mahmudullah to Poynter, no run, hits the ball back down the ground and it hits Joyce. Ireland dont run
Mahmudullah to Joyce, 1 run, goes down on one knee but can only hit it along the ground to long-off

Lots of field changes

Mahmudullah to Poynter, 1 run, overpitched and hit to deep mid-wicket. Quick fielding out there
