10.20pm Started spitting down just as the innings ended. Covers coming on. Let's hope the rain doesn't last long. Akshay is here to take you through the chase.

Isam adds: Further to Haider's comment: "Sabbir is in as bad form as Soumya. Mosaddek Hossain is the only other batting option, but they should pick him only if he doesn't have to bat low down the order."

First 10 overs: 95 for 5, next 10: 48 for 4. This has been a steep decline, one brought about because Bangladesh kept playing a series of rash strokes, some after settling in, others even before getting their eye in. Who said 20 overs is all about mindless hitting. Shakib and Liton counter-attacked, as did Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah, but none could carry on to get 50 plus. Ashley Nurse did the early damage, Kesrick Williams then came in and settled into excellent rhythm. His change of pace and variations in length made the difference. This may have yet been 160 if not for that magnificent catch at third man by Kesrick to dismiss Shakib. West Indies would take this and back their batsmen to chase this down.

Chris Mcgough: "Poor batting display. No one taking responsibility to play the anchor role after terrible start. Shakib should've played through, then Mahmudullah should've definitely seen it out and took them to 160. 140 well under par "

Brathwaite to Mustafizur Rahman, 1 run, makes room and drives wide of cover for a single. So Bangladesh have managed to play out the overs, something that didn't look possible at one stage.

Haider : "Despite his form, I think someone like Sabbir could've been useful for BD, perhaps to come in for Sarkar. Selectors need to realize which player is ideal in every situation. Cannot rely on the sameness senior players to bail you out, as the younger players aren't showing too much promise."
