    1.1 He runs in from over the wicket and strikes first ball. He pumps his fist repeatedly and then punches his hand into the ground. Banged in short and angling away from the right-handed Liton. He aims to pull it against the angle but can't control the shot. He ends up short-arming it to Rashid - yes, that man - at deep square leg 1/1
    15.4 Rashid dismisses Shakib and Tamim in the same over. Straighter one on middle from around the wicket, Tamim drops down to one knee, swings his hands at a sweep and only collects fresh air. Rashid rattles the stumps and celebrates. Tamim finishes with 43 off 48 balls at a strike rate of 89.58 103/6
    4.3 Sabbir uses his feet again, takes a short ball from just a shade outside off and hits it straight into the lap of Shenwari at wide long-on. One big shot too many, Sabbir? He shapes for a pull, goes for a fourth successive boundary against a slider, but ends up dragging a catch to the fielder 30/2
    9.5 deceived in flight, done in by the zip off the pitch. Looked to step out, knew he wouldn't get to the pitch because Nabi cleverly bowled this flat, then he tried to cut but didn't have the room and this time Shahzad pulled off a smart stumping, much like his idol MS Dhoni would have. 75/3
    11.6 what a reply! Flattens the stumps as Mahmudullah's decision to slog across the line backfires. Nowhere near the pitch, the ball came back in just a wee bit to beat his swing. 93/4
    15.1 pushed through fuller on off stump from around the wicket, Shakib looks to thump it over midwicket. Instead, he drags it straight down the throat of Najib at long-on. Bangladesh continue to crumble around Tamim 101/5
    17.5 Rashid Khan is simply unstoppable. This is a flat dart on the pads, Sarkar goes for a slog-sweep but he does not get all of it. He holes out to captain Stanikzai at deep midwicket. Fourth wicket for Rashid 108/8
    15.5 Make that three in five balls for Rashid, and he's on a hat-trick now. This was the wrong'un from wide of the crease, snakes back in and pins Mosaddek on the front pad. The batsman had no clue about the variation 103/7
