Time for the presentations

Shakib Al Hasan, the winning captain: I think the belief did it for us, after the loss in St Kitts. We had a good chat, had come to an agreement that we could beat this West Indies side. The mindset changed the momentum. The crowd support was a massive factor, we never felt like we played away from home. It felt like playing in Bangladesh. Hopefully they will come out in their numbers and support us tomorrow. Hider and all the bowlers were brilliant, Fizz went for a few runs but picked crucial wickets. Great team effort, all in all.

Tamim Iqbal is the Player of the Match for his 44-ball 74. "In St Kitts, the shot I played to get out, I thought it was on. Today, I gave myself time early on and then cashed in. Shakib played an unbelievable innings, he took a lot of pressure off me. He was looking good right from the time he came in. His early boundaries got us up and running. I love the pitch here, my first time in Florida."

Carlos Brathwaite, the losing captain of the night: I thought the decision was right, we got a few wickets, put them under pressure. But we were casual in the field and that's where the game turned. I still have full confidence in bouncing back. The question going into the break was maybe we could have chased much lesser. Casual fielding cost us, we could have improved our attitude a bit. I don't know if I will be fine if I say this, but Ramdin's DRS call was questionable. He is our glue. These things happen, but. Somedays, you have bad days with the bat but we shouldn't have been chasing down those many. As long as the attitude is the same as the first game, we'll be confident of winning.

My colleague Peter Della Penna believes Tamim's 16th over onslaught when Bangladesh batted sparked the turning point in the game. Your thoughts?

Mohammad Isam disagrees with PDP. "I think it was Mustafizur's dismissal of Russell...if he was around for another 10 balls, game over for Bangladesh."

Shovik Faiyaz: "It had become a routine for BD to lose crunch matches, happy to see that they have got rid of that on this tour. "

11.30pm Great to see the Bangladesh players walk towards where their fans are and thank them for the support. Joy on their faces, and they've now taken this into a decider. Surely all of them will turn up tomorrow and support them in big numbers? Magnificent victory. At different times, this chase looked set for West Indies despite losing a clutch of wickets. That stand between Rovman Powell and Andre Fletcher hauled them back, in the end just not enough gas to get over the line. The spinners - Shakib and Nazmul - finished with 5 for 47 off eight overs between them. Absolute gold in the context of the match.

Nazmul to Badree, 1 run

that's it, Bangladesh have leveled the series. This is a full toss which he can only punch to long-on. Bangladesh's first win after five consecutive T20 losses

Nazmul to Paul, OUT

swings, misses and he's bowled. That's the end of that, how the mood turns. This was fired in full, he went for the glory hit, he had to, but couldn't connect. Nazmul does the snake dance

Keemo Paul b Nazmul Islam 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40
Nazmul to Paul, no run

big swing but the ball drifts in to beat him and hit the body.

Nazmul to Nurse, OUT

he has hit this really, really high into the night sky. The man at deep midwicket would have had his heart in his mouth because this was in the air for a long, long time. Ariful who dropped a catch earlier in the night was so calm and composed this time and took the ball with his palms facing the sky, Australian style. Surely this turns it in Bangladesh's favour?

Ashley Nurse c Ariful Haque b Nazmul Islam 16 (8b 1x4 1x6) SR: 200
Nazmul to Paul, 1 run

backs away and drills this to long-on, now 14 off four

Nazmul to Paul, no run

big swing, miss. Keeper fumbles, but recovers. Paul, what are you doing?

15 needed off the last over.

Mustafizur Rahman 4-0-50-3
Rubel Hossain 4-0-35-1
Mustafizur to Nurse, FOUR runs

slashed away to beat short third man off a thick outside edge. Ho-ho-ho, this is going down to the last over. Nurse gave away his intentions early by making room, Fizz went short and for the angle across, the batsman had enough room to swing his arms and that's what he did.

Mustafizur to Nurse, SIX runs

I'm reminded of the stroke Dinesh Karthik hit to seal the Nidahas Trophy. This is full and wide, he stays deep inside the crease, gets down on one knee, reaches out to this dipping full toss and deposits it over the deep extra cover fence. Magnificent

Mustafizur to Paul, 1 run

swung across the line towards long-on

Mustafizur to Powell, OUT

thick edge and superbly taken by Mushfiqur. This was another short bouncer angled across, the heave is ungainly this time because it got big on him. Still got a thick edge but Mushfiq leapt high and plucked that out. Boy, does that put Bangladesh ahead now? Surely.

Rovman Powell c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mustafizur Rahman 43 (34b 3x4 2x6) SR: 126.47
Mustafizur to Powell, FOUR runs

short, and walloped one bounce to the deep midwicket boundary. He was lining that leg side boundary, had his eyes there all the while as the bowler was about to run in. And when it arrived, he transferred weight back and pulled that away. Superb.

Mustafizur to Nurse, 1 run

turns this length ball towards the man coming in from deep midwicket

Rubel Hossain 4-0-35-1
Shakib Al Hasan 4-0-19-2
Rubel to Powell, 2 runs

Shakib puts down what you have to say was a simple chance, running back from cover. This was sliced, the ball looped up and was there for a while. He covered ground, did all the hard work in running back. But just couldn't hold on. They take two.

Rubel to Powell, no run

swing and a miss. Not underneath the length by any means. Looked to fetch it from way outside off as well.

Rubel to Nurse, 1 run

looks to scoop fine, but the bowler bowls it yorker-length outside off, squeezed to point.

PDP has spotted Stuart Law rubbing his forehead deep in discussion with Jeffrey Dujon, who is in between TV comm stints at the moment. Tense moments as the chase winds down. WI with a lot of work to overhaul this target in the last 13 balls.

Rubel to Powell, 1 run

brilliant yorker, which he manages to squeeze off a thick inside edge to short fine leg.

Rubel to Nurse, 1 run

backs away and drills this full delivery inside out to sweeper cover.

Rubel to Nurse, 1 wide

sees the batsman backing away and fires this full and wide, toeing the wide line and rightly called so.

PDP: "Second stunning catch of the night by Liton Das. Even more impressive because he nearly got cross body-blocked by the man running across from long-on. If there were a case to give Man of Match on fielding, tonight's the night for it. West Indies need 37 off 18."

Rubel to Nurse, 2 runs

looks to muscle this over long-on but gets it off a thick inside edge to deep midwicket
