8.45pm West Indies were in this briefly, and needed their top order to get them within 80 runs of the target. But once they lost three quick wickets to Shakib, this was always going to be an uphill battle. Those runs made by Shakib right at the end - which seemed 20 extra - also hurt them, despite their chase being aided by lots of dew.

Mustafizur started poorly but redeemed himself in the middle overs, while Miraz was outstanding with his control and guile. But, no one was a shade near Shakib, whose control and accuracy was right out of the top drawer. He was running temperature in the run-up to the game, decided to play and boy, didn't he make an impact or what. The series is alive and it sets it up nicely for the decider. Join us shortly for the presentation

Carlos Brathwaite: 'Didn't get it right in the first six overs with the ball, so we were chasing the game. Didn't bowl as well as we wanted. We could've been tighter with our plans, must give credit to Liton Das & co. We didn't have the best day on the field. As a batting unit, we lost wickets at key intervals, would've had momentum if we hadn't lost wickets. That said, I loved the intent. Fact that we went hard at it, credit should go to the batting unit.'

Shakib Al Hasan is the Player of the Match for his five-wicket haul and 42*

'Batting or bowling, cricket is a momentum game. One or two overs can change the game, we had a great start with the bat and continued that till the 20th over. With the ball, it wasn't easy with the dew. It was a team effort, everyone chipped in. Liton played some brilliant shots, the way Riyad finished off, it was an important innings. In wet conditions, Miraz bowled brilliantly. Great team effort, look forward to the next one.'
