    10 this time, Mominul has held on to a catch at deep midwicket and it couldn't get simpler than that, really. Lewis looks to pull from way outside off and as the shot came off, you knew immediately that he didn't time it as well as he would've liked. First wicket for Ali and he's pumped. 99/3
    4.1 what a disappointment. Afridi has played all around a full delivery that slid in and spun to beat the whip and hit off stump. That should give Rajshahi some cheer. 53/1
    6.1 got him with a beauty. Foxed him with the length and zip.This was a touch full and a legbreak, Jahurul shapes to cut but ideally should've been on the frontfoot. In the end, was neither here nor there and the split-second indecision cost him as the ball skid on to sneak through. 75/2
    10.1 two in two, absolute brain freeze from Nadif. Aimlessly steps out but to do what? Dead defence. Beaten as the ball slides on instead of spinning back in and Mushfiqur effects the simplest of stumpings. 99/4
    19.1 carves this to square third man. Looks like Sanga wanted to go over cover, just ended up slicing it to the man who somehow managed to hang on despite being on the move. 186/6
    13.3 looks to slog this out over deep midwicket, but ends up slicing the simplest of catches to short third man. It's the pace of the delivery - Samit Patel gave it air - that resulted in his downfall. Had too much time, tried to hit it too hard. 124/5

    20 beats his swing and crashes into the stumps. Tame end but nothing tame about the carnage we've witnessed in the last five overs. Muted celebrations from Rajshahi 201/7

    7.4 no timing whatsoever and he's holed out to long-off. Stepped out to go over the top, but didn't time it well, the bat face turned, a clear indication of there being no timing, and Hider took a dolly. 60/3
    0.5 plumb this time. Swung back in late to hit him flush in front of middle as he played all around it. The change of angle - coming from around the stumps - has worked. 2/1
    2.5 belts this straight to mid-on. Oh, Samit. What have you done? Afridi takes a dolly. 11/2
    9.2 bottom-handed whip but he's hold out to long-on where that beast of a fielder called Kieron Pollard takes it with his big, bucket hands. Timed his jump to perfection. He picked the right ball to hit but the wrong fielder. Neat little innings from Zakir, though 71/4
    10 what a stunner that is at backward point. Nadif has pulled off one that has surprised everyone. Mushfiqur looks to reverse sweep that over the infield and thought he hit it well until he saw a man leap high like a goalkeeper from the corner of his eye and pull off a one-handed stunner. 72/5
    13.2 this is a dolly down Pollard's throat at long-on. This was a short ball which Franklin could have hit anywhere. Over deep midwicket was more apt but he looked to flat-bat this over long-on instead and has to make the long walk back 104/6
    16 drags this slog from way outside off to mid-on. No timing whatsoever, the bat face turned in his hand and it turns out to be a simple catch. Captain gets captain. 124/7
    16.3 was though with an expansive slog sweep even before the ball arrived, missed it completely and saw the middle stump knocked back. Afridi is taking wickets for fun here. 126/8
    17.2 beaten by the slower ball, knocks back the middle stump. This was the slower leg-cutter honing in from wide of the crease, Reza through with a wild slog, nowhere near the delivery. 132/9
    not out
    18.2 through the gate, off stump knocked back. Game, set and match. Dhaka extend their run at the top of the league standings. This one's floated full and across, tentative prod from the tail-ender, misses it completely. The small gap is enough for the ball to sneak through as it wobbles away just a bit. 133/10
