Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Ihsanullah, 1.4 ov), 2-28 (Rahmat Shah, 5.5 ov), 3-79 (Mohammad Shahzad, 19.3 ov), 4-101 (Asghar Afghan, 25.1 ov), 5-139 (Samiullah Shinwari, 33.2 ov), 6-150 (Hashmatullah Shahidi, 37.1 ov), 7-160 (Mohammad Nabi, 40.5 ov)
37.1 to Hashmatullah Shahidi, edged and taken. Hangs back at the crease and opens the face to run it down to third man. But the bowler has given him minimal room here, and that results in an outside edge that settles into the hands of the keeper Liton. 150/6
1.4 to Ihsanullah, straight to cover. Wicket in the first over of his debut match for Hider. And it's not a delivery he would've imagined would've fetched him his maiden wicket. Short, ample width, flayed straight and hard into the hands of Mohammad Mithun. 10/1
5.5 to Rahmat Shah, off-stump pegged back. Creates a beautiful angle after drawing the batsman forward with a length ball. Angles it into his off-stump and the ball comes on with the arm to go past the inside edge as the batsman leaves daylight between bat and body. 28/2
19.3 to Mohammad Shahzad, and now he holes out to long-on, spectacular catch from debutant Abu Hider! Shahzad was showing his intent after the drinks break and now he charged down to loft that ball down the ground but could not get enough to send it all the way. Abu Hider was at long-on, he covered a fair distance to his left but was a few yards inside the boundary so he jumped at the last moment and held on to it with both hands. Since he was inside, he had enough ground behind him to tumble and then celebrate with his arms stretched, like Shahid Afridi. 79/3
25.1 to Asghar Afghan, comes down the track and he's missed it completely! It was flighted generously just outside off on good length, Asghar was tempted and he came down, drove the wrong line and the ball went in as a natural variation to knock the top of off and middle stumps. 101/4
33.2 to Samiullah Shinwari, goes for the big shot and he misses it completely! Shenwari was eating up too many deliveries against the spinners. He wants to release the pressure by trying to loft this length ball on off to the leg side but misses the line and the ball goes with the angle to knock over middle. 139/5
40.5 to Mohammad Nabi, plumb. Shakib's problematic angles making life hard for the Afghan batsmen. He was giving no room and sliding them around middle which is dead accurate and makes it hard to swing big. So Nabi decides to sweep but the angle is too sharp and he misses as the ball hits the back leg. 160/7

TOTAL42.1 Ov (RR: 2.82)119
Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 3.4 ov), 2-17 (Litton Das, 4.5 ov), 3-39 (Mominul Haque, 12.2 ov), 4-43 (Mohammad Mithun, 14.1 ov), 5-79 (Shakib Al Hasan, 23.3 ov), 6-90 (Mahmudullah, 29.4 ov), 7-100 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 33.1 ov), 8-110 (Mashrafe Mortaza, 36.1 ov), 9-119 (Abu Hider, 41.5 ov), 10-119 (Rubel Hossain, 42.1 ov)
4.5 to Liton Das, sharp inswing again, loud appeal and he's been given! Liton is a bit unsure and he's gone for the review after consulting Shakib. Length delivery outside off, comes in, hits the front pad right in front of off and middle and looks like the second noise was of bat hitting the pad, not the inside edge. Ball-trcking says it's hitting and Liton walks off. The batsman would have reviewed straightaway had it been an inside edge, this was plumb and Bangladesh's only review is gone in the fifth over. 17/2
3.4 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, leading edge and that's a lolly for point! Nazmul gave Mujeeb the charge and went for a big shot on the leg side but the ball straightened after pitching on length outside off, took a thick outside edge and ballooned towards point. 15/1
42.1 to Rubel Hossain, and he strikes first ball with the googly, Bangladesh are wrapped up for 119. A loopy googly coming in, Rubel hardly moves his feet and is trapped plumb on the front pad in front of the stumps. 119/10
12.2 to Mominul Haque, strays down leg, Shahzad goes up again for a catch as he collects it. They have reviewed. Was there a little feather as he tried to whip it away off the pads? There well may have been. Confirmed by Ultra Edge. Great review; off goes Mominul. Bangladesh three down. 39/3
14.1 to Mohammad Mithun, bowled him, off the inside edge. Misjudgement in the width available to punch that one, doesn't get enough of it with the ball coming in, and drags it on. 43/4
36.1 to Mashrafe Mortaza, pitched up on middle and leg, Mashrafe slogs it way up in the air and Aftab Alam at deep midwicket moves to his left and settles under a skier. Terrific catch. Eleven-ball duck for the Bangladesh captain. 110/8
23.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, loud, loud appeal, this one beats Shakib completely for pace and Rod Tucker raises the finger. Bangladesh don't have a review left and they shouldn't have used it anyway. Flat and quick on middle and leg, Shakib goes back and is a bit too late to bring his bat down, the ball skids off to hit on the pad right in front of the middle stump and the keeper and Rashid scream in celebration. 79/5
29.4 to Mahmudullah, here's the wrong'un, here's another wicket for Rashid! Mahmudullah might have picked the googly there because he kept the bat in front of the stumps even though the ball pitched outside off. But it didn't turn as much as he expected and the ball came in just a bit to rattle the off stump. Rashid and Shahzad bring out the dab. 90/6
33.1 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, floats it up outside off and makes him reach out, Mehidy slices it straight into the hands of point. 100/7
