6:41pm Superb comeback from the home team. They looked woeful for the first 30 minutes of the game, feeding Lewis over and over again with a full length and plenty of room. He broke free and put up 76 with Hope in five overs. But they figured it out and slowed it up with the spinners, while the seamers looked to get much shorter. No one from West Indies' middle order seemed to get in and they have scored at least 20 runs below what they should have got at a minimum. Mahmudullah the reason for that - 3 for 18 at 5.40 per over. Cannot ask for better than that. Shakib and Mustafiz were too good for the lower order as well. Bangladesh with a solid chance to take the series. Join us for the chase in a bit.

Mahmudullah to Thomas, OUT, mix-up and he won't even get halfway down as the bowler clips the bails off. The umpire probably wants to check if he collected cleanly and took it off with the ball in hand. Because he has sent this upstairs. And that will be out because he has the ball in his hand as his elbow dislodges the bails. For good measure, he also pulls the stumps out. That's good. Length ball hit him on the thigh as he looked to flick and dribbled into the leg side. He switched off to the possibility of the run and was caught napping

Mustafizur Rahman to Brathwaite, OUT, and taken at gully! Sharp captaincy from Shakib. Bratwaite's only been looking to poke Mustafiz down to third man, so they cut out that option. It's a length ball, offcutter outside off, and he has a slash at it. Thick edge goes straight to the fielder
