All smiles in the Bangladesh camp as Shakib Al Hasan collects the trophy. The players line-up for a group photograph. And, with that, we will wrap up as well. Thank You for joining in today. On behalf of Shamya Dasgupta and Binoy George, this is me, Ashish Pant, signing off. Ciao!

Paul Stirling is the Player of the Match: This was set up by the bowler' and my knock comes from how the bowlers setup the game for us. Full credit for them to come back from what we have been through the last two weeks. They deserve all the credit. We improve more when we play more. We have been a little slow off the blocks. We have to work our way to get there. We have got some good results here. [On the Test] It's been a few years. Everyone is excited. Good luck to the Test lads. This win will help the players playing the Test.

Taskin Ahmed is the Player of the Series: I was believing in myself, doesn't matter if the wicket is flat or not, I was in my process. I was backing myself and helping the team to win. Last few years, as a group, we have been working very hard. We are getting our belief, and we want to become a great fast bowling group.

First up, the Bangladesh captain, Shakib Al Hasan: We didn't bat well, kept on losing wickets. But that happens. If we have to go with the same [attacking] approach, sometimes it does not come off. We did not want to change our approach. If we want to become a good team, that is how we want to play. We will be playing the Test match in some time, and we will travel to Dhaka and see what we can do. We played very well. After the England series, we have come up with the same intensity. We have played two good matches, and today it was Ireland's day.

Time for the presentation.

4.56 Hasn't been the best of times for Ireland in the white-ball leg but they have give Bangladesh a proper wallop in the third T20I. They win with 36 balls to spare. The 125-chase wasn't going to be easy but Paul Stirling stood tall when his team needed the most. He smacked a 41-ball 77 even as Bangladesh removed Ross Adair and Lorcan Tucker cheaply. Stirling scored across all areas of the field, smashing ten fours and four sixes. Having said that, Bangladesh have been class-apart all through the series, which they take 2-1. This will be a lesson for them and they do have some positive, none bigger than Shamim Hossain who scored his maiden T20I fifty. They went all-out with the bat, an approach, which for once did not come off.

Siva : "@Manthan...hmmm you actually meant Fire Vs Camphor" Hah!

Manthan Jain: "That over was a fire vs fire contest...."

Rishad Hossain to Stirling, OUT

High up in the air and held well at long on by Shanto! Rishad gets his maiden T20I wicket and what a wicket. Tossed up on off, Stirling looks to clear the ropes once again, but does not connect as well. The ball has more height than elevation as Shanto runs to his left from long-on and completes a good catch. Stirling falls for a stupendous 77!
