8.15 pm Mushfiqur's team-mates sprint on to the field to mob him. And deservedly too. He came in with the Bangladesh chase beginning to sink and anchored them through it.

Sutty: "He shows a lot of heart, that Mushy - He's definitely the one to take this Bangladesh team out of the rut they have been in."

Lee: "MR is absolutely a pocket dynamite and has singlehandedly won Bangladesh the match...well done on your captaincy debut!"

A special way to begin the captaincy for Mushfiqur. He won the toss, and was pretty good on the field even as Samuels scored a brisk fifty. Bangladesh did well to limit West Indies to 132 on a sluggish surface. And when the Bangladesh middle-order began to undo a promising start to the chase, Mushfiqur stayed firm until the end.

Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Match, his match-winning innings pipping Marlon Samuels' all-round effort. That's all we have for you from the Twenty20. We'll be back on October 13, when the one-day series begins. Thank you for all your emails. Cheers.

Rampaul to Mushfiqur Rahim, SIX runs, six, six! Mushfiqur slams a length ball over the deep midwicket boundary and Mirpur erupts. What a tremendous way to win your first game as captain. He knew it was a six the moment he made contact, raising his arms in triumph and screaming.

Over to Mushfiqur with four to get off two balls.

Brathwaite to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, slower ball on off stump, nudged to midwicket for a single. Mushfiqur will keep strike for the final over. Spare a though for the debutant though. Brathwaite's gone for 14 in an over that could be a game-breaker.
