That's all from us for tonight. Here is Isam, trying to make a sense of what happened earlier. With that, good night from Varun and me. See you soon.

"Very happy with our batting," says Brathwaite. "You don't always get that sort of a start. We wanted to be aggressive. As a bowling unit, we were not happy how we bowled in the second T20I. But we regrouped and it was pleasing to see how the boys performed. Keemo Paul is one of the most talented players around."

Shakib Al Hasan is the Player of the Series. "The toss doesn't matter," he says. "But we did well to come back in the last ten overs. It was 180 runs wicket maybe, they got maybe runs more. The required run rate was never too much, but the problem was we kept losing wickets. Overall, in the series, I think we were very good in most of the areas. There are some little improvements to be made though."

Evin Lewis is Man of the Match for his blazing 89. "I play for Dhaka, so I am quite used to his ground," Lewis says. "I tried to keep it just simple."

Time for the presentation.

8:39pm West Indies win by 50 runs and seal the series 2-1, but this game will be remembered for those wrong no ball calls by Tanvir Ahmed which halted the play for what looked like an eternity. I am being told it was for around eight minutes, at the least. However, that united the West Indies side who were all wayward till then. It started with Fabian Allen picking up two-in-two to send Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al Hasan back. Keemo Paul then picked up 5 for 15, the best bowling figures by a West Indies bowler in the format as Bangladesh lost the plot and were eventually bundled out for 140 in 17 overs.

Brathwaite to Mustafizur, OUT

full and straight, Mustafizur was backing away, exposes his stumps and the middle stump is uprooted, and that's the game and the series

Mustafizur Rahman b Brathwaite 7 (7b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100

short of length, backs away and goes for the pull, ends up toe-ending it towards long-on

Brathwaite to Mustafizur, 1 run

short again, angled towards the batsman who backs away and dabs it towards third man at the last moment

Brathwaite to Mustafizur, no run

For those who have just joined us, and are wondering what all this no ball call is about, you can get yourself apprised here

Muhammed: "Brathwaite Could have bowled 14th over but he chose to bowl 15th so wait for the 6th bowler :D" -- Nice spot, but don't think it will come down to that

Cottrell to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, OUT

short of length around off, goes for the pull but ends up slicing it towards short third man, extra bounce doing the trick there and an easy catch for Allen. West Indies one wicket away now
