The brain freeze

Mohammad Mithun tried to work a ball from Rohan Mustafa past point for a single, but the delivery had turned sharply and taken his inside edge. However, the ball trickled to the wicketkeeper Swapnil Patil as Mithun ran out of the crease. Patil quickly broke the stumps but he must have been bemused too. Mithun didn't follow the ball and was left ruing a sure-shot fifty.

The confirmation catch

Mustafizur Rahman had a catch denied, although replays were inconclusive whether he had complete control over the ball after he had landed on his right hand. When he foxed Mohammad Shahzad in the first ball of his next over with an offcutter, he completed the simple return catch and threw the ball up. Just to be sure, Nasir and then Mustafizur looked up and caught the falling ball.

The momentary misjudgement

As Soumya Sarkar swung wildly at Amjad Javed, the top edge lobbed up towards third man where Saqlain Haider made a critical mistake of taking a backward step. That cost him the wicket in the fifth over, as he dived inches short of the ball. Javed wasn't pleased, this was the second catch in three balls that didn't go to hand.

The better pick-up shot

Soumya Sarkar and Mohammad Mithun had struck sixes with pick-up shots but it was Rohan Mustafa's that looked the most effortless. At the end of the third over, he moved towards the leg stump to pick a full-length Taskin Ahmed delivery for six over backward square leg. It was the best of the three, a small consolation for UAE.
