A late flourish by West Indies saw them finish on a healthy 164 but some murderous hitting by Ashraful and an impish fifty by Aftab has charged Bangladesh to a memorable win.

Man of the Match Mohammad Ashraful : "We knew we can get the 160+ score. We have worked hard for the last one month. We had commando training and then some hard nets sessions."

Rampaul to Kapali, 1 run

Bangladesh have won and West Indies are out of the ICC World Twenty20. Joy and sorrow collide in the arena. Full-pitched, outside off stump, nudged to backward point for the winning run.

Rampaul to Kapali, no run

And again. Kapali is teasing the spectators here.

Rampaul to Kapali, no run

on the middle stump line, tapped to mid-on

Rampaul to Aftab, 1 run

full, yorker length, on the middle, driven to long-on

Rampaul to Aftab, no run
Rampaul to Kapali, 1 run

full, straight, on the middle stump line, driven back to the stumps and Rampaul dives to his right and the ball crashes into the stumps at the other side and ricochets towards Rampaul. He recovers to fire in a throw - there was one bail on - and he found his target. It was refered upstairs but the batsman was just in.
