player of the match
Mushfiqur Rahim
Bangladesh

8.15 pm Mushfiqur's team-mates sprint on to the field to mob him. And deservedly too. He came in with the Bangladesh chase beginning to sink and anchored them through it.

Sutty: "He shows a lot of heart, that Mushy - He's definitely the one to take this Bangladesh team out of the rut they have been in."

Lee: "MR is absolutely a pocket dynamite and has singlehandedly won Bangladesh the match...well done on your captaincy debut!"

A special way to begin the captaincy for Mushfiqur. He won the toss, and was pretty good on the field even as Samuels scored a brisk fifty. Bangladesh did well to limit West Indies to 132 on a sluggish surface. And when the Bangladesh middle-order began to undo a promising start to the chase, Mushfiqur stayed firm until the end.

Mushfiqur Rahim is the Man of the Match, his match-winning innings pipping Marlon Samuels' all-round effort. That's all we have for you from the Twenty20. We'll be back on October 13, when the one-day series begins. Thank you for all your emails. Cheers.

Rampaul to Mushfiqur, SIX runs

six, six! Mushfiqur slams a length ball over the deep midwicket boundary and Mirpur erupts. What a tremendous way to win your first game as captain. He knew it was a six the moment he made contact, raising his arms in triumph and screaming.

Over to Mushfiqur with four to get off two balls.

Rampaul to Nasir, OUT

caught behind! Nasir, what are you doing? Instead of giving the strike back to his captain, Nasir backs away and tries to smash through the off side, he gets a nick through to Ramdin.

Brathwaite to Mushfiqur, 1 run

slower ball on off stump, nudged to midwicket for a single. Mushfiqur will keep strike for the final over. Spare a though for the debutant though. Brathwaite's gone for 14 in an over that could be a game-breaker.

Mushiq! Terrific presence of mind. The third man was in the circle and Mushfiqur cut the ball even though it was close to him through the gap between the keeper and short third man
