Right then, that's it from us. We'll be back tomorrow for the big one, India v Pakistan. Do join us then. Till then, stay safe.

10.40pm Abject and disappointing are a couple of adjectives that come to mind. That was a terrible batting performance from UAE after an inspiring bowling effort. They looked to hit every delivery too hard and lost too many wickets in the process. Bangladesh bowlers stuck to their guns and were richly rewarded with some tight bowling. They have an important win and the 51-run margin could prove crucial to the net run-rate. UAE need to look long and hard at their strategy for the upcoming games.

Amjad Javed: "We are making a habit of this, bowling out teams for 135, but we'll go back and look at our batting and come back strong after fixing the batting problem. Playing against India and Pakistan will be a learning curve for us."

Mahmdullah is the Man of the Match: "I'm waiting for my zone to get the ball, if I get the ball I'll go. More of it (a role as a finisher)."

Mashrafe Mortaza: "We were looking for 150 on this wicket, Mahmudullah played really sensibly. we needed early wickets and we got it. We got a good seam attack, outside of this team, there are 2-3 more. i'm very close to finish, and do my best till I can. Our batting has been a constant for us, hopefully we'll do better in the next few matches.

Shakib Al Hasan to Ahmed Raza, OUT, that will be it. Slower delivery outside off, the ball rips past the outside edge again and Raza is way down the track. The keeper whips off the middle stump from the ground itself. Bangladesh have a 51-run win
