12.13am Did that result surprise anyone? You bat first against the world champions, put up an underwhelming total, then rain intervenes and shortens what already should have been a cruise. They got a couple of early wickets, but that's not going to deter a top team filled with the world's most destructive batsmen. End result: total chased down, hardly broke a sweat.

"We lost the ODI series, but we wanted to put some pride into this game and come back and win... overall a good win," says Andre Russell. "It's been a while since I played a nightwatchman role (laughs). It's more responsibility and that's good. I've always wanted to open the innings in T20. It's now a challenge to face the new ball. A bit worried about fitness.. still not a 100 percent, but I'm good enough to play.. probably 95 percent. Bangladesh are good, we're not going to underestimate them. We just want to take it game by game and finish the series off in Florida."

Time for presentations.

"I think we lost early wickets and wickets at crucial times. Mushfiq and (Mahmudullah) Riyad had a good partnership, and then Mushfiq lost his wicket," says Shakib Al Hasan. "We lost five wickets in a ten-over period, and in a T20 game it gets difficult for any team to lose five wickets that early and come back. They've got some quality T20 batsmen and you have to be at your best to challenge them. We have two more games, at a different venue, and we have a lot more positives to take from today than negatives."

Andre Russell is Man of the Match for his blistering knock.

"We spoke about it (opening with Nurse)," says West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite. "Thankfully it worked and he did a job for his team, giving us a start. It's important for each and everyone to express themselves.. play your shots and be free. Obviously it's important to remain calculated. If you've made a mistake, we can have a chat and improve. But it's about doing it your way. Sometimes it's just about being satisfied than improving, and what was especially delightful was the fielding. So probably not change or improve, but just replicate that fielding performance and that energy."

That's a wrap of this game. It's also the end of the West Indies leg of Bangladesh's tour. They now head to Florida for the last two games of the series. The world champions go 1-0 up in style. Can Bangladesh bounce back? Join us then to find out.

Shakib Al Hasan to Powell, SIX runs, well, they only know one way to play, and they'll do it their way. There's that big hit to seal things. Another tossed up delivery slogged from outside off wide of long-on
Nazmul Islam to Russell, SIX runs, another length ball, this length isn't doing anything to hurt the batsman, because it's not like there's a whole lot of fizz, grip and turn on this surface. Tonked straight over for another massive six
Nazmul Islam to Powell, SIX runs, length ball outside off, giving him too much room, and he responds with a slog over deep midwicket
Mustafizur Rahman to Russell, FOUR runs, leg-side fuller ball, a useless delivery to be honest, clipped fine for four
Mustafizur Rahman to Russell, FOUR runs, gets the front leg out and slaps a shortish one over a leaping backward point
Mustafizur Rahman to Russell, SIX runs, that's outta here.. a huge, huge hit. In the slot.. short of a length, pitching outside leg, backs away and hammers it away over midwicket
Mustafizur Rahman to Russell, FOUR runs, ugly swipe across the line. Angled across and he swings for a big hit over the leg side. With no room he gets a thick leading edge that gets past third man
Rubel Hossain to Samuels, OUT, fullish length well outside off, clears the front leg and tries to deposit it over long-on. But finds Mahmudullah there. Had to drag it from outside off, and that may have affected the distance

MN Samuels c Mahmudullah b Rubel Hossain 26 (13b 2x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

Rubel Hossain to Samuels, FOUR runs, makes room to a shortish one and slaps it through the covers
Rubel Hossain to Samuels, 5 wides, too short, and well over the bat and the gloves of the leaping keeper. Wide plus four.. Bangladesh don't need this now


Shakib Al Hasan to Samuels, SIX runs, can't bowl there.. the dolliest of dollies for Samuels who smokes a full one on leg over long-on. Miles in the air
Shakib Al Hasan to Russell, SIX runs, back of a length, sliding into him, uses the angle to muscle a pull over deep midwicket
Nazmul Islam to Samuels, SIX runs, off the toes and over deep midwicket. Slides a fuller one into the pads and he clips it powerfully with ample bottom-hand power
Shakib Al Hasan to Samuels, FOUR runs, length on the stumps, stays firm inside the crease and slaps it past mid-on
Mustafizur Rahman to Fletcher, OUT, has he nicked off here? Oh yes, he has.. good tight angles from Mustafizur. Sticks to that corridor outside off, this one's short of a length and forces the batsman to have a waft at it, and he nicks through to the keeper

ADS Fletcher c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mustafizur Rahman 7 (7b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Mustafizur Rahman to Fletcher, no run, just drops short of mid-on as he forces a slap with no room to swing the arms
Mustafizur Rahman to Lewis, OUT, pays the price for trying to force a shot.. backs away but with the ball angling in, gets no room. Tries to slap it over and gets a big top-edge that sails to backward point

E Lewis c Liton Das b Mustafizur Rahman 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Mehidy Hasan Miraz to Fletcher, SIX runs, lofted over cow corner. Backs away to give himself space to free the arms and carts it with the inwards angle
