Arafat Sunny301926.3393000
0.6 to AB de Villiers, gone! That was another length ball on off stump, going with the angle towards middle. AB made room to carve it through the off side and he ended up picking out Mashrafe at cover point, takes a simple catch at head height. Super start for Bangladesh.. 2/1
11.2 to JP Duminy, down the track and that's an excellent catch from that man Nasir. Looks to hit over wide mid-on, maybe, but doesn't reach the pitch of it. Turns in quite a long way and he ends up dragging it in the air towards deep midwicket. Nasir loses it in the flight, initially, and moves to his left, away from the ball, before correcting course and falling forward and to his right to take it inches off the turf. 77/3
Nasir Hossain403719.2582220
3.6 to Q de Kock, another! Similar dismissal to AB. It's a length ball with a bit of width outside off. On a slow pitch like this, it isn't easy to control those slashes through the off side, and he ends up slicing it softly into the hands of the cover point fielder. 31/2
Shakib Al Hasan402416.0072000
13.2 to DA Miller, given! It was tossed up slowly and Miller, planting his front leg down the pitch and looking to work it across the line, is beaten by the turn, misses his inside edge and hits his pad in front of middle and off. Looked to have straightened enough to hit the stumps, and Shakib becomes Bangladesh's leading T20 wicket-taker, going past Abdur Razzak. 90/4

Kyle Abbott201015.0061010
0.6 to Tamim Iqbal, gone! It's another short ball down the leg side and Tamim, looking to pull, only manages to glove it to the keeper. 7/1
Kagiso Rabada302829.3363100
1.5 to Soumya Sarkar, Two down. Bouncer, rising sharply over Sarkar's left shoulder. He was in an awkward position to pull, and ended up hitting under it and finding the man at deep square leg. 13/2
14.5 to Mashrafe Mortaza, short again but the line is outside off and Mashrafe can't control the pull as well. Effort ball too, extra bounce, and he top-edges it and AB takes a simple catch at deep midwicket. 86/7
Wayne Parnell2.501214.2391000
18.5 to Mustafizur Rahman, makes room to carve through the off side and Parnell finishes the game with a yorker, smacks into off stump after squeezing under Mustafizur's bat. 96/10
David Wiese301224.0090010
13.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, and that's the end of Shakib's troubled stay. Mid-off had gone back to long-off after the previous ball and fine leg had come into the circle. Looking to exploit that field change with the lap-sweep, Shakib ended up lapping the ball straight into short fine leg's hands. 71/6
17.3 to Litton Das, slower length ball outside off and he moves across again to sweep, ends up top-edging and AB - he's been everywhere today - takes it well, moving backwards from square leg. 94/9
Aaron Phangiso402115.25131100
10.1 to Nasir Hossain, Five down. It's tossed up outside off and that isn't the greatest of shots from Nasir. Went for the drive, throwing his hands at the ball without getting his head over it, and hit it uppishly, straight to short cover. 57/5
Jean-Paul Duminy401122.75140000
7.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, down the track and that's a soft dismissal. Duminy saw him coming and fired it at his pads. Mushfiqur whipped it in the air, and only managed to pick out the man at deep midwicket. 50/3
9.2 to Sabbir Rahman, what a catch that is! Saw Sabbir shaping for the reverse sweep and began moving to the right and he was in the perfect position when the ball came straight at him, off the batsman's gloves. It hit his left thigh and he just about managed to hang on while falling to the floor, with his hands bunched together at his stomach. 56/4
