dipping full toss, sliding into leg, tries to sweep but doesn't really connect and hits it straight to short fine leg off the inside of the bat
Nailbiting finish. What an end to the game. Dhaka were sloppy on the field but in the end manage to just hang in there for a narrow victory. Rossouw and Mohammad Mithun took them close with that partnership but a flurry of late wickets, highlighted by the hat-trick from Al Islam, cost Rangpur. Dhaka maintain their unbeaten run and their position on top of the table.
Mashrafe Mortaza says: "Although we ended up on the losing side we need to prove ourselves in the next match. We did very well in the middle part. The way Rossouw and Mithun batted was excellent. We came very close, we could have finished it. It's a big mistake we made, hopefully one that we can fix in the next match."
Aliss Islam is Man of the Match.
Shakib, winning captain: "We knew he (Aliss) had the potential. Luckily he showed his class. Long way to go for him, but he did very well today. That's the beauty of captaincy: if it comes off it looks good, otherwise you end up looking bad. Both teams played a very good game of cricket. There are areas where we can improve. It's a long tournament. Winning close matches gives you that extra confidence."
That's all we have from this game. Thanks for joining us.
comes down the ground and swings to get a leading edge in front of cover who dives forward. Just lands in front
comes down the track and drills it straight back. Dot ball. Gold at this stage
pitched up outside off, gets down to slog and drags it to long-on
four more.. pitched up outside off, slapped hard through the covers for four
full outside off, slapped through the covers. Just too easy
Sabbir: "Who is this guy Aliss Islam? Any information about him?? " -- All I know for now is that he put down two sitters and has now made amends with a hat-trick.
fired in extremely quick by Narine - over 110kph. Dipping prodigiously around his off stump as well, can't do much about it. Jams the bat down but the ball sneaks through to flatten offstump
length, bit of width, shovels it over cow corner
dropped Just how many have they put down today? Pulls this back of a length delivery from outside off and deep square leg sheels a simple chance
advances down the ground and tries to heave this over but deep midwicket dives forward to snaffle it. Andre Russell the fielder, making a difficult catch look like a breeze
short of length, extra bounce outside off, swings and misses
he gets it! Hat-trick for Al Islam. He wheels away in celebration. Beautifully bowled! On a length, Reza closes the face, playing for the turn, but it spins minimally to take the leading edge to first slip's hands.
clips the bails, has it? Another big slog attempted to one that's nowhere close to full enough. Referred upstairs. Yep, gone through the bat and just tipped the bail with the gentlest of brushes
gets down to slog a length ball that goes straight through and flattens middle stump
dropped? Pummeled extremely hard straight back and put down as he sticks the right hand out
short, wide, slapped to deep cover
fuller, drilled straight back to Shakib who half-stops it
full, drilled to long-off
