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
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.
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.

nicely played here, worked off the pads down to deep square leg
banged in short and it loops slowly over Dockrell
slower ball well wide of off stump, too wide for the umpire's liking, in fact
driven, firmly but without much timing and it dribbles wide of cover
hint of swing here for the wild-eyed Shafiul, just tailed back into Rankin late
full from Shafiul, Rankin swishes and misses. Looks every bit the No. 11 he is
finally Rankin picks up a single, fiddling this around the corner
worked off the toes into the midwicket region
Bangladesh throwing themselves around the field. Whipped into the leg side but smartly fielded
driven carefully to cover
again Rankin has played and missed outside off stump. Shakib desperate to finish it off
Dockrell gets very deep into his crease to push a single down the ground
fuller this time, Rankin was hanging back and held his bat a long way out from his body. Didn't look like connecting
play and a miss outside off
outside off stump and left alone. Shakib has cut a very serious figure all day and is ordering his troops around firmly between deliveries
turned away into space, looked like a couple was on but some chaotic calling meant only a single was taken
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 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
ideal for Ireland, Johnston keeps the strike by nudging a single to midwicket. 35 runs will feel like 135 though
