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.
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.
Over to Mushfiqur with four to get off two balls.

The experienced Abdur Razzak is the new batsman.
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.
another full toss, this time Mushfiqur hits it past the fielder in the circle to the man at deep midwicket
a low full toss and Mushfiqur plays it straight to the fielder at short midwicket. Lucky dot ball for West Indies
Rampaul to bowl the final over.
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.
short ball, Mushfiqur hits it with a flat bat past the bowler and sprints back for the second
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
slower ball on off and middle, pushed towards the off side for a single
Hugh: "Whatever the situation, Mushfiqur always steps up to the mark. He is a deserving captain - no matter how dismal the rest of them play, he always gives his all."
he's found the gap! It was a length ball and Nasir swung hard, sending the ball into the gap between long-on and deep midwicket

little Mushfiq needs to do more than drive along the ground to long-on for two

full ball in the blockhole, played through midwicket
driven to long-on for a single
another slower ball, Mushfiqur tried to slog-sweep but missed and got hit on the body
good length and straight, it was the slower ball. The batsman played it with soft hands on off side and ran

short ball, the batsman tries to pull and the top edge goes to fine leg
dropped by Bravo, whose fielding is quite abysmal. Hossain mis-cued a pull over the bowler's head. Bravo came running in from mid-off, got to it, but shelled it.
