Mohammad Amir403528.75105100
2.3 to Afif Hossain, brilliant diving catch at backward square leg. Amir gets the short ball on target, the batsman goes for the hook, gets a top edge as he's cramped for room. The ball swirls away and Miraz runs to his right, dives and catches the ball. 14/1
14.2 to Irfan Sukkur, flicked straight down fine leg's throat. Full ball outside off, he had walked across and picked it up nicely off his toes, but it went straight to the fielder. 99/4
Robbie Frylinck403318.25123210
12.6 to Shoaib Malik, driven to cover. Wasn't exactly to the pitch of the ball but Malik connected very well. However, it was in the air, and cover went to his left and held on. Good catch, that ball was travelling.. 94/3

Mehidy Hasan Miraz302709.0051200
Shohidul Islam402315.75122000
9.1 to Liton Das, pulled straight to deep square leg. The one time Liton makes sweet connection he picks out the fielder. Short ball, he got into nice position and pulled the ball, but it carried nicely to the man on the boundary. 63/2

Mohammad Irfan411824.50132000
0.2 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, caught at point. Short and outside off, cut in the air, and Liton flies to his left and holds it in front of his face with both hands. Brilliant catch.. 0/1
18.4 to R Frylinck, back of a length outside off, he rocks back to pull. Gets more height than distance and he can only pick out deep midwicket. 141/7
Abu Jayed2024112.0041120
1.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, caught at mid-off. Slower ball, off-cutter, and the batsman was coming down the track to club it straight. can't time it and ends up hitting it straight to the fielder. 11/2
Andre Russell403228.00113010
17.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, yorked him. Skipper gets skipper at a key moment with a superb ball. Yorker swinging into him on middle stump, Mushfiqur was trying to give himself room and go inside out. He doesn't connect, the ball does - with the stumps.. 134/6
19.2 to Shohidul Islam, fuller length on middle and leg, he tries to hoick it to cow corner, but inside edges onto pad, from where it crashes into the stumps. This is ending tamely. 142/8
Shoaib Malik201507.5030100
Mohammad Nawaz402917.2571100
10.5 to RR Rossouw, picks out Russell at long-on. Down the track but he can't get underneath the ball enough. Gets it flat and straight, Russell moves to his right and gobbles it up. 85/3
Kamrul Islam402927.2593100
13.1 to Shamsur Rahman, down the track and it was short enough to slash away. He connects well but it's straight to the man at deep point, who holds the ball in front of his face and keeps holding it even while falling down. 101/4
13.5 to Najibullah Zadran, no doubt this time. Najibullah had no clue about this one too, just pushing forward and the bowler gets it to rear up from a length, takes the shoulder of the bat and loops to point. The batsman looked completely clueless there. 105/5
