Bangladesh win by 27 runs Brave effort from Ireland, proved the value of good Associate teams, they bowled superbly on a wicket tailor-made for their take-the-pace-off bowlers. Bangladesh were hugely disappointing with the bat, especially given the start Tamim gave them. George Dockrell was a star for Ireland with his left-arm-spin but Bangladesh rallied and scrapped hard to pull of the victory. Shafiul Islam finished with four but it was the spinners who took the early wickets to leave Ireland struggling.

Andrew Miller will have a bulletin ready shortly to tell you all about it and we have a gallery to show you all about it.

Tamim Iqbal, who played well before a very soft dismissal has been named man of the match. Bit of a crowd pick that if you ask me.

Elsewhere we have a Facebook page, packed with measured, objective comments from fans around the world and we'll be back for tomorrow's big game - Pakistan v Sri Lanka. Before then, don't forget to adjust your Fantasy team.

Shafiul to Rankin, OUT

that'll be that! Bangladesh have done it, Shafiul finishes with four as Rankin chips to short midwicket. The crowd go absolutely wild, as well they might. Halfway through the hosts were in big trouble after a shoddy batting performance but their bowlers have pulled off a vital victory

banged in short and it loops slowly over Dockrell

Shafiul to Dockrell, 1 wide

slower ball well wide of off stump, too wide for the umpire's liking, in fact

Shafiul to Rankin, 1 run

driven, firmly but without much timing and it dribbles wide of cover

Shafiul to Rankin, no run

hint of swing here for the wild-eyed Shafiul, just tailed back into Rankin late

Shafiul to Rankin, no run

full from Shafiul, Rankin swishes and misses. Looks every bit the No. 11 he is

Shafiul to Rankin, no run

fuller this time, Rankin was hanging back and held his bat a long way out from his body. Didn't look like connecting

Shafiul to Rankin, no run

play and a miss outside off

Shafiul to Rankin, no run

outside off stump and left alone. Shakib has cut a very serious figure all day and is ordering his troops around firmly between deliveries

Shafiul to Dockrell, 1 run

turned away into space, looked like a couple was on but some chaotic calling meant only a single was taken

Shafiul to Rankin, 1 run

gets a wide delivery outside off, he bowled a few of those, stabbed away to deep point

Boyd Rankin has had a miserable day and he needs a miracle to drag Ireland back into this.

Shafiul to Johnston, OUT

Shafiul does it again! Johnston has asked for a review but it looks gone, lbw prodding forward to a ball that nipped back. Yes indeed, time to celebrate, the review confirms the wicket. The light is disappearing now for Ireland
