18.1 excellent stop by Shanto, diving to his right at mid-off, even better recovery as he fires a flat throw to the wicketkeeper, Rijal wasn't going anywhere, Dhamala took a bit of time to turn around but it was too late as he tried to make a desperate stretch to get back into the crease. Moments such as those can turn the game around. Bangladesh have been superb on the field so far, this effort only exemplifies that 63/3
    5.2 a huge roar resonates across the stadium. Length ball angling in from wide of the crease, hint of nip back in as well, he looks to hit through the line over cover but gets a thin inside edge onto the middle stump. 17/1
    6.1 rip roaring bouncer, lands it on middle and gets some lift, Karki is beaten for pace as he looks to duck under that one but hangs his bat out like a periscope, the ball takes the back of the bat and lobs to Saif, who takes a dolly at slip. The umpire took his time and made the right decision finally 19/2
    33.5 what an unfortunate end to the innings. Perhaps the only way he would've been out today. Was saved twice early, but he's third time unlucky. Hits it straight to Najmul at point and sets off for a single, but Rajbit sends him back, the fielder effects a direct hit even as the wicketkeeper disturbed the bails before the ball hit the stumps. But he had the presence of mind to pull the stump out. Excellent match awareness that. Relief in the Bangladesh camp for Rijal was starting to look mighty dangerous 146/5
    27.4 swung across the line but holes out to the man at deep midwicket. The change of bowling has worked for Bangladesh. Rush of blood from the batsman, no real need to go for that, looked to clear the ropes but Joyraj was off the blocks quickly, ran in and managed to keep his balance even as the ball was dying on him before taking it inches off the ground. Wicket against the run of play 114/4
    36.2 looks to get outside the line and sweep, but that one spun back in to hit him on middle and off, the bowler was convinced and went up in a strong appeal and the umpire raised the finger after deliberating for a long time. First instance, it looked like he was trapped in front, but the ball flicked the glove on the way through to the pad . Extremely unlucky. Nepal in trouble now. 153/6
    48.3 steps out but the bowler fires it in full and straight, he ended up tying himself into knots, gets yorked as the middle stump takes a beating. 202/8
    43 another hesitation, another run-out. This one was hit straight to midwicket, not sure what Bhurtel was thinking when he was set off for the single, but Airee was also partially at fault as he called his partner for the single and then turned his back on him. It was too late to make ground at the non-striker's end. Poor calling, total breakdown in communication. Nepal's freefall continues 178/6
    not out
    50 hit back down the pitch, bowler reaches out and gets a minor deflection onto the stumps. The non-striker was more than halfway down the crease and had no real chance of getting back. Fourth run-out of the innings. 211/8

    19.2 pandemonium! If Nepal's running was bad, Bangladesh's has been atrocious. This one was pushed to cover, the fielder tried to slide across to stop it but ended up pushing it behind him, Joyraj saw that as an opportunity to steal the second but his partner wasn't willing. Both batsmen were stranded at one end with Pinak's bat just short of the crease at the striker's end when the wicket was broken at the non-striker's end. Multiple replays later, the decision is finally made. Pinak wasn't looking for the second but has to make the walk back simply because he failed to drag his bat inside the crease before his partner. Big wicket for Nepal, the game's wide open again. 63/2
    6.3 Dhamala strikes. Nicely tossed up offbreak, leaving Saif prodding and missing. He is rapped on the front pad. That looked pretty adjacent. Can Nepal build on this opening? 17/1
    28.1 poor shot selection has done him in. He shaped to pull but the ball wasn't as short as he expected, it skid straight on and trapped him plumb in front of middle. Was in no position to play the stroke. Real trouble now for Bangladesh. 98/4
    22.1 played for the turn but the ball stops on him, checks his shot at the last minute, only manages to lob a simple return catch. Big moment in the match 75/3
