Tamim accelerated at the right time and the fourteenth over bowled by Seelaar turned the tide in Bangladesh's favour. How costly was Cooper's drop in the first over when the score was on 2 and the batsman was Tamim Iqbal!

Tamim says he is happy to stay till the end and is at a loss of words to explain the way he paced his innings. He feels that if they play to potential they can win tomorrow's match too

Please do join us for the game tomorrow and it starts early- at 02:00 PM local time. Till then, good night from all of us
