full and straight, Mustafizur was backing away, exposes his stumps and the middle stump is uprooted, and that's the game and the series
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.
short of length, backs away and goes for the pull, ends up toe-ending it towards long-on
fuller on middle and leg, a wild swing but misses and gets hit on the pads, an appeal for lbw but that was heading down, they collect two leg-byes as the ball goes towards third man
short again, angled towards the batsman who backs away and dabs it towards third man at the last moment
good comeback by Brathwaite, slips in a bouncer to put the batsman in all sorts of tangle, a tumbling Mustafizur somehow manages to sway away
fuller around off and lunched over long-off, all the way for a six
For those who have just joined us, and are wondering what all this no ball call is about, you can get yourself apprised here
length outside off, pushes at it and gets beaten
length ball, on middle and leg, moves across and looks to work it fine, misses. An appeal for caught-behind. Not out, says the umpire. Brathwaite wants to review it, but the ball was not even close to the bat
fuller, down the leg side, hits the pads on its way to the keeper who fails to make a clean stop
short of length around off, Mustafizur was looking to guide it to third man, misses
a high full toss around off, defended back
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
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
62 needed off 30, West Indies need two more wickets to wrap it up
short of length outside off, defended on the off side
short of length, angling towards the batsman, cramps him for the room, hitting him near the thigh
length on middle and leg, chipped away towards deep midwicket, was in the air but well short of the fielder
on the pads this time and flicked away fine, the fine leg fielder puts in the dive but cannot stop the boundary
a bouncer, on middle and leg, Hider misses the pull
short of length, down the track and looks to pull it, gets an under edge towards fine leg
fuller outside off and driven crisply through cover-point, 17 from that over. Is there a twist left in this game?
