11.07 pm: Bit of a surprise with Mahmudullah being the player of the match. I'd have thought it was a cinch for the Fizz. But Mahmdullah batted well too. That's it from us for this game's coverage. We'll catch you soon for the fourth T20I.

Mahmudullah is the captain and the Player of the Match: I think the boys stood up at important times. The way they fought tonight was incredible to see. I think it wasn't a 150 wicket. When me and Shakib were batting, we were thinking that one of us has to go through till the 16th or 17th over. One set batter had to be there. For the new batters it was tough. They were bowling well. But (our) bowlers did the job really well, lot of cutters and slower balls. When we were about to go in the field, I wanted Shakib to have a chat with the team. He said that no matter what happens we have to take an early wicket, and get the pressure up. Mustafiz did a brilliant job once again, he was outstanding tonight. We had a chat in Zimbabwe when we finished our T20 games that we need to step up. We felt we are a very good side, though the ranking doesn't show that. But we always felt we are a very balanced side. We just need to play with a big heart and balanced mind while executing our skills.

Matthew Wade: Bowlers have been really good, kept us in most of the games. 120-130. We just didn't take the opportunities with the bat which was disappointing. (Easy chase) Wasn't really the feeling in the box. We know their closing overs are really hard .Some of their bowlers won't give more than four-five runs an over. If the required rate gets up to 6-7 it's challenging and 8 is very difficult. (Nathan Ellis debut) Yeah it's a funny game cricket. He could have gone none for 34, last three balls he's gone 3 for 34. It can turn around really quickly and that's how we'll look at the rest of the series. T20 World Cup coming up so every match is gold.

Presentationsl coming up

Bangladesh win by 10 runs and secure a series against Australia for the first time in any format. A fantastic performance with the ball, led by Mustafizur Rahman. They battled to 127 with the bat then defended like Tigers. When Mitch Marsh and Ben McDermott were together Australia were well placed, but it was very difficult for new batters.

Shoriful Islam to Marsh, OUT

high the air, taken at long-off! Wild celebrations for Bangladesh. Short of a length, Marsh tried to go down the ground but it skewed off the bat. Long-off, Naim, did well to make the ground in and take the catch. Is that the game?

Mitchell Marsh c Mohammad Naim b Shoriful Islam 51 (75m 47b 6x4 1x6) SR: 108.51

Australia need this to be a pretty big over. Who will bowl it? Key decision coming here. It's Shoriful

Mustafizur to Carey, no run

defeats him again! Length outside off, goes without saying it's a slower ball, turns and dies under Carey's bat as he swings to leg. Another masterful over from Mustafizur
