Fall of wickets: 1-32 (Chris Gayle, 4.6 ov), 2-74 (Darren Bravo, 16.1 ov), 3-106 (Marlon Samuels, 28.2 ov), 4-231 (Kieran Powell, 61.1 ov)
4.6 to CH Gayle, Gazi gets a big debut wicket!! Gayle charged down to a flighted ball but didn't get the timing he wanted to send the ball over the long-off fielder placed for the shot, gives an easy catch to the fielder there. What a start for the youngster after getting hit for a couple of sixes in his first over!. 32/1
16.1 to DM Bravo, Gazi gets his second wicket this time. This was flighted way outside off and Bravo went for a big drive away from his body, but the ball turns and takes an outside edge that lobs easily to the fielder at point.. 74/2
61.1 to KOA Powell, Gazi gets his third. Over the stumps this time, the ball was a bit on the shorter side and Powell wanted to smash it somewhere around the mid-wicket boundary, the ball turned and probably stayed a little low and hit the middle.. 231/4
28.2 to MN Samuels, a wicket at the stroke of lunch. Short and on the body, Samuels obliges with a crisp pull shot but fails to keep it down. Gazi, who has been having a good debut, is placed in the deep for the shot and he dives forward to pull off a smart catch. Another big one falls for West Indies.. 106/3

Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Zunaed Siddique, 4.5 ov), 2-88 (Shahriar Nafees, 12.4 ov), 3-119 (Tamim Iqbal, 22.6 ov), 4-286 (Shakib Al Hasan, 71.1 ov), 5-362 (Naeem Islam, 97.5 ov), 6-368 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 102.2 ov), 7-489 (Mahmudullah, 136.2 ov), 8-493 (Sohag Gazi, 136.6 ov), 9-554 (Nasir Hossain, 147.6 ov), 10-556 (Shahadat Hossain, 148.3 ov)
4.5 to Junaid Siddique, nasty short ball, straight at the throat, it is too quick for Junaid to get out of the way. He tried to move his head out, but is not able to move the bat. The ball hits the shoulder and lobs up in the air for the fielder at second slip to accept a dolly.. 25/1
12.4 to Shahriar Nafees, one shot too many by Nafees, this was back of length and nine times out of 10, he would have left it alone, but he has a go at that. The ball gets some extra bounce and takes the outside edge through to the keeper. Nafees was eyeing a cut shot but that ball had no room and it was coming in with the angle from round the stumps.. 88/2
71.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, driven straight to the hands of cover. Shakib is visibly upset with that shot. The ball was bowled at length and was coming in with the angle and Shakib, who has been using hit feet a lot against all bowlers, took a couple of steps but couldn't get to the pitch of the ball as he went for the drive. He didn't manage to keep it on the ground and gave a simple chest-high catch to Fudadin, who has been substituting for Chanderpaul.. 286/4
147.6 to Nasir Hossain, it's all over for Nasir! Oh no! just four short of his maiden century. This was bowled at a length, wide outside off stump, and it was a slower ball too. Nasir went forward to punch it to deep cover, looking to get the strike and edged it low to Gayle at slip. An hour ago, he would have left that delivery alone. 554/9
22.6 to Tamim Iqbal, and it's all over for Tamim, short ball outside off, he tries that tennis forehand again that he tried in Sammy's last over. The ball catches the toe-end and goes only as far as mid-on. That shot was not on for that ball. It was way too wide.. 119/3
97.5 to Naeem Islam, and there is a wicket finally! Naeem plays a tired shot at one which was bowled short of length and came in a bit. Naeem went for a weak cut and edged it to the keeper, bringing an end to his marathon innings.. 362/5
136.2 to Mahmudullah, and that is the first bat-pad dismissal of the innings, it looked like it was coming soon as Narine was getting decent turn with his pace. He tosses this outside off, the batsman goes forward in defence and is not able to get to the pitch, the ball turns, hits the bat and goes comfortably to forward short leg. The batsman didn't even wait for the umpire to give that out. 489/7
136.6 to Sohag Gazi, and Gazi's stay is over in three balls. This one was pushed through, outside off, and turns in a bit, but a little less than what the batsman expected. He goes back to defend, but the ball goes past the outside edge to take the off stick. Two in an over for Narine.... 493/8
148.3 to Shahadat Hossain, that is all over for Bangladesh! Narine flights this one just outside off, the turn takes it between the bat and pad and hits the top of off. 556/10
102.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, and after a maiden century for Naeem, we have a first wicket for Permaul. Mush charged and made room to a flighted one on the middle, but didn't get under it and hit it straight at the bowler, who did well to hold on to a stinger.. 368/6

Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Chris Gayle, 6.4 ov), 2-209 (Darren Bravo, 51.4 ov), 3-212 (Marlon Samuels, 52.6 ov), 4-218 (Kieran Powell, 59.4 ov), 5-225 (Denesh Ramdin, 61.2 ov), 6-244 (Veerasammy Permaul, 64.5 ov), 7-249 (Daren Sammy, 66.4 ov), 8-265 (Ravi Rampaul, 72.4 ov), 9-265 (Tino Best, 72.5 ov), 10-273 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 74.2 ov)
52.6 to MN Samuels, one follows the other and Sohag Gazi takes out Samuels! Flatter delivery, a touch short, it bounced up from nowhere and got big on Samuels, who ended up fending it straight to forward short leg. That delivery could be the sign of things to come, reared up from nowhere... 212/3
64.5 to V Permaul, Gazi strikes! It was tossed up, Permaul came forward to defend and was expecting the ball to turn just like the previous two, this one didn't, it went straight on. Permaul played inside the line and heard the death rattle as the ball hit the off stick. 244/6
66.4 to DJG Sammy, it's all over for Sammy! He went back again and played across the line to a flatter one which was pushed through a bit. The ball went straight on and it was hitting the middle of the middle.. 249/7
72.4 to R Rampaul, it's number four for Gazi! Lovely delivery, just drifts in with the arm. Rampaul came forward to defend that and played outside the line, the ball hits the pads en route to the stumps. 265/8
72.5 to TL Best, it's fabulous five for Gazi and he is on a hat-trick too! tossed up on off stump, Tino Best went back to that one and tried to defend off the back foot. He was expecting the ball to turn in but this just went straight in. Strikes the off stick. Lovely spin bowling.. 265/9
74.2 to S Chanderpaul, now its six for Gazi! tosses it up outside off and that drifts in with this arm, Chanders goes forward and pads it away. But that was too close for such a shot, bad judgement by Chanders. It's another matter that the ball would have missed the off stump.. 273/10
6.4 to CH Gayle, he has walked! the fuller length delivery to follow up the short one, slightly quicker as well and Gayle comes half forward to defend. The ball takes the outside edge en route to the keeper, there is a massive appeal, but Gayle didn't wait for the umpire. Wasn't that a big wicket! The match is opening up nicely.. 20/1
51.4 to DM Bravo, it's edged through to the keeper! A loose shot by Bravo as he flashes at a ball which was a touch wide outside off stump and just went away with the angle. There was no feet movement and Mushi took a straightforward catch.. 209/2
59.4 to KOA Powell, Shakib gets one now! late drama in this match. After tossing up a couple, he bowls this flat and outside off, Powell went back and expected the ball to come to him, but the ball went straight through, and Mushi makes no mistake behind the stumps. The centurion, who looked so comfortable, is gone.. 218/4
61.2 to D Ramdin, another one falls in the fading light! bowls this flat and quick, Ramdin took a step forward but tried to go back as the ball came in with the arm. He missed the ball and that hit him right in front of the middle. 225/5

Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Tamim Iqbal, 4.6 ov), 2-44 (Zunaed Siddique, 14.2 ov), 3-51 (Shahriar Nafees, 18.6 ov), 4-55 (Shakib Al Hasan, 20.3 ov), 5-85 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 30.4 ov), 6-106 (Naeem Islam, 36.5 ov), 7-119 (Nasir Hossain, 40.1 ov), 8-155 (Sohag Gazi, 50.6 ov), 9-159 (Shahadat Hossain, 51.2 ov), 10-167 (Mahmudullah, 54.3 ov)
4.6 to Tamim Iqbal, it's not going to be Tamim to save the day, he goes back to play a fierce cut at this back of a length delivery that bounced a bit extra, the ball takes the edge and settles in the gloves of the keeper. He could have easily left that alone like he did a few times earlier.. 10/1
51.2 to Shahadat Hossain, only one to go now! Short ball on the body, Shahadat didn't know what to do with that at all. He goes back and fails to get his bat out of the way, lobs it straight into the hands of Powell at short leg. 159/9
14.2 to Junaid Siddique, Tino strikes! it is the first accurate ball he has bowled, just short of length, at a good pace and goes away with the angle, Junaid tried to play it towards third-man, an ODI shot, and nicks it to the keeper.. 44/2
18.6 to Shahriar Nafees, all over! El Tino gets his first! It was a short one on target, got up to around chest height. Nafees, who has been leaving all those deliveries, goes for a pull. The ball was too quick on him and he just top-edges tamely for El Tino to get under it easily.. 51/3
20.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, Tino if on fire! short of length, pitches on the leg and middle, and jags away a bit. Shakib went back to defend that on the leg side, but was square up by that one. It takes the edge and settles in the gloves comfortably. Look at Tino, he is so happy.. 55/4
30.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Tino's day gets better! Fourth wicket for him. After bowling a few short ones outside off, he pushes this one further up, and this comes in with the angle, Mush was half-forward and wanted to play that towards the leg side, he gets hit on the knee-roll and that, ladies and gents, would have hit the top of leg. 85/5
54.3 to Mahmudullah, it's five for Tino, it's a win for West Indies and a big disappointment for the home crowd! The ball was full and fast and surprisingly for some reason, on the middle stump. Mahmudullah, who was backing away to the leg side past few ball, misses and that crashes the stumps and the hopes of millions.. 167/10
36.5 to Naeem Islam, Permaul strikes in his first over off the spell! Is that the end of the Bangladesh challenge? The ball was flighted on the middle, Naeem came forward to defend and played outside the line, the ball straightened and was hitting middle and leg.. 106/6
40.1 to Nasir Hossain, Permaul takes out Nasir! Is that the last nail? Well almost. This was a tossed up delivery on a length, and Nasir went back instead of coming forward. He stays back and plays outside the line of the ball, expecting more turn than there actually was, leaves a gap between pad and bat and the ball hits the off stick. 119/7
50.6 to Sohag Gazi, Gazi is not going to be that hero this evening! He charged down to hit that ball straight out of the ground, the ball was a touch slower and he gets too much under it. It goes straight up in the air, very high, takes ages to come down and there is enough time for Fudadin at mid-off to settle under it.. 155/8
