4.1 short on middle and leg, Nafees looks to turn it to square leg but closes the bat face early, the leading edge is well taken by Bopara, who runs a few yards back from point. 34/2
    3.5 short and wide outside off, he looks to pick the bones out of that one but only manages a thick outside edge that is gleefully accepted by Mushfiqur. Subhasish is animated, lets out a roar and a few words to the batsman. 34/1
    7 as easy as they come. Soft dismissal, really. Steps out to go over the top but only manages to chip it back to the bowler. Crucial wicket that. He bowled it at good pace, almost beat him in flight. 48/3
    8.1 steps out and turns it to short fine, takes off for the single even before looking at his partner, then he stopped and turned back after the non-striker turned his back on the skipper, and Mushfiqur whips the bails off. Disaster for Barisal. 53/4
    12.2 excellent use of the feet, gets to the pitch of the ball and hits it clean but picks the lone man at deep midwicket. The pressure of not scoring boundaries forces the rush of blood. The slide continues 75/5
    17 right into the blockhole, he looks to jam his bat down but loses sense of what is happening as he attempts a run, the non-striker responds initially and the freezes by which time Nadif is well outside his crease and can't get back, Mushfiqur gets the ball and whips the bails off, the batsman is a couple of inches short 101/7
    12.5 can't get it over the fielder in the leg side, flicked straight to midwicket, where the fielder dives to his left and hangs on to that one. Prasanna's stay is short-lived 75/6
    14 he looks to cut, but is cramped for room as the ball was angling in from wide of the crease, gets a thin edge that is taken easily by Mushfiqur 80/7
    not out
    17.4 good change of pace, slapped to cover but they take a run that isn't on, the keeper collects the throw on the half-volley at the striker's end and he's well short. They took the chance off the fumble but didn't work 101/9
    19.3 full and straight on middle, Hossain looked to give it an almighty thwack but the bat was nowhere near it and the ball finds timber. Dramatic ending though. Al-Amin has a few words with Shahid as both of them barge into each other. Mushfiqur has to come in between the two, few words exchanged again. Umpires get into the act as they disperse 108/10

    12 hara-kiri of the highest order unfolding at the Sher-e-Bangla. After having done all the hard work, Munaweera's brain freeze results in another wicket. Steps out, makes some room and looks to go over cover but only manages to hit it a little too straight at Prasanna takes a dolly at long-off to end his Sri Lankan teammate's vigil. No doubt now as to which team has its nose in front 62/6
    1.5 thick edge and gone! Mominul wasn't comfortable with that line of attack, he looks to sway inside and slash hard but gets a nick that is pouched very easily by Brendan Taylor. Pump of the fists from Al-Amin but no stares or words this time. 9/1
    3.2 too full to force it through the off side again, just hangs his bat out in the end without any conviction, and the outside edge has been taken easily by Taylor. Glimmer of hope for Barisal 18/2
    3.3 what a cracking delivery! Nips back in sharply from outside off, Hasan looks to dab but somehow withdraws from the shot, only to see his middle and leg stump rattled. Al-Amin is a man on a mission. Game on! 18/3
    3.4 length ball on off from wide of the crease, Mushfiqur doesn't anticipate the low bounce and looks quite silly in the end as the ball rattled into the stumps. Hat-trick for Al-Amin. He's single-handedly turning it around for Barisal 18/4
    11.4 looks to play across the line but is done in by the arm ball that pitches on off and skids back in, Shah was completely foxed by that and he knows it was an error in judgment. Wasn't at his fluent best and his misery has ended here 61/5
    18.3 unbelievable catch at cover. Short ball, Nazmul looks to back away and the infield but doesn't get the elevation and Taijul dives to his left, keeps his eyes on the ball and pulls it out. 95/8
    17 the double bluff has worked. Last delivery was a short one, this one was full and dead straight, he plays all around it and the middle stump takes a walk. 90/7
    19.1 can't get to the pitch of the ball, but goes through with it but can only hit it as far as the fielder at deep cover. The shot was on, but he didn't get hold of it. Taijul first takes an excellent catch in the last over, and then is among the wickets in a high-pressure final over. 101/9
