The return of the yorker

Lockie Ferguson made a dream start to his T20I career, taking wickets off his first two balls, but Mahmudullah denied him a hat-trick by digging out a superb yorker. Mahmudullah went on to make an important fifty that not only salvaged Bangladesh's innings, steered them to a decent score, and brought him back among the runs. But it was still Ferguson who got Mahmudullah's measure, with another yorker, in the final over.

The extra dive

There is no shortage of tiptoe-balanced boundary-line catches in international cricket these days, but Shakib Al Hasan's second grab was special. After he had apprehended Neil Broom's blast over square-leg, Shakib managed to keep the ball in play but had thrown the ball a little too far, and did well to stretch back into the field of play to complete the catch. The third umpire took a bit of time to make sure but every replay only showed how great the catch was, both from a technical and aesthetic point of view.

The slip, the victim

At the start of the 11th over of New Zealand's innings, Kane Williamson slipped trying to turn for a second run, which gave the debutant Tom Bruce the cue to start from the non-striker's end. But Williamson froze after taking a couple of steps, enough for Bruce to come down too far. Soumya Sarkar got to the ball quickly, meanwhile, and while his throw wasn't absolutely accurate, Mashrafe Mortaza stretched, gathered the ball, and broke the stumps in time.

The error

Soumya Sarkar is a brilliant outfielder but made an error in judgment in the 13th over when he stood at least 10 yards inside the boundary as Kane Williamson slogged one towards him. After tracking back, Sarkar jumped high but the ball was out of his reach and, rubbing salt on Bangladesh's wounds, bounced inside the circle before crossing the rope. Sarkar offered a wry smile and when the camera panned to him, the bowler Shakib Al Hasan wore a similar expression. They weren't exactly smiling at each other, however.
