cuts back in to beat him neck and crop! The off-stump takes a beating as the fizz finishes this off in style. Bangladesh lead 1-0
That's that for today. Sreshth's bulletin will be up very soon, so do check it out if you haven't been able to watch much of the game. Join us for the 2nd T20I on Wednesday. Until then, it's goodbye from my Shashank Kishore, and my colleagues, Sreshth Shah and Binoy George. Adios!
Time for the presentation
Mahmudullah: We had a team talk that we were 10 runs short, so we have to field well. It was outstanding, the hunger and energy was there. The bowlers executed their plans really well. You need to have an attacking mindset with the ball early on, that's what we did. I'm not over the top, we've won, it's gone. Now it's time to focus on the next game and try and be on top from the first ball, try and manage ourselves, keep our feet on the ground."

Matt Wade: The bowlers did a terrific job. 130 was chaseable. You lose 3-10, you need to rebuild which Mitch Marsh and I tried to do, but it didn't work out. You need to find a way to score runs on these wickets. You're always disappointed when you're bowled out for 100 or so, need to find ways to score. We knew they'd bowl a lot of spin at us. If our bowlers can keep giving us 130 to chase, we will mostly find ways to score. In West Indies, the wickets spun but the skid into the wicket wasn't there. We didn't execute as well as we should have.
9.35pm Bangladesh have walked home in style! They'd have been the first ones to admit to being at least 20 short but boy, have they not made 132 look 172? Incredible effort. Australia choked against spin and Bangladesh's plethora of slow deliveries on what was a challenging surface.
Australia never looked in control of this chase at any point, not even when Mitch Marsh appeared to be revving up. You always got a sense that he was one mishit away.
Sabbir Apon: "Don't think there was anything wrong in the pitch. When we travel Australia, England or NZ we don't expect turning pitches. So, Australia should not expect pace-friendly pitches in sub continent. f Bangladesh can score 130, and you can't you don't deserve to win let alone pace friendly pitch or spin pitch."
backs away and toe-ends a hit to cover
hits this full toss straight to deep cover
another slower length ball outside off, beaten again
driven straight to cover
sprays this outside the wide line as he attempts another slower ball
beaten by a cutter that spins back in to keep low and beat the inside edge
defends this slower delivery back. Slightly uppish but doesn't carry
heaved into the leg side but that's one more into the bag for Bangladesh as deep midwicket takes a dolly.
beaten by this cutter off a length, played too early
hit hard to long-off
beaten as he tries to wait, wait, wait and then drill this slower ball over the infield. Way outside his hitting range
hit well but can only find the throat of the long-off fielder who didn't have to move an inch. As easy as they come
pushed to the man at the edge of the ring at cover
another swing and a miss
beaten by another cutter as he tries to swing this across the line
slaps this to long-off
sliced to the man at extra cover! Great comeback by the Fizz. This is a cutter on a length, deviates big and Turner is deceived as he looks to go downtown again.
drilled down the ground to beat long-off. This was right in the slot, Turner held his shape and went hard at it
heaved into the leg side to deep midwicket
Jitendra Khanch: "So much for the Russel Domingo's statement about playing on good pitches at start of series..Seems like statement was made so that aus can relax a bit and then wham!!! Spinning wickets.."
