The retribution (sort of)
Like Netherlands' Paul van Meekeren, who dropped Soumya Sarkar in the first over on Wednesday and later took his wicket, Andy McBrine also dropped the batsman in the first over and later took his wicket. But while van Meekeren's drop at third man didn't cost much, the one dropped by McBrine at deep midwicket saw Bangladesh speed off quickly. Instead of being 1 for 1, Soumya and Tamim Iqbal added 61 runs in just 4.4 overs. During this time, McBrine also gave away four overthrows while Soumya was dropped again by Boyd Rankin at mid-off.
Tamim had greeted both Ireland spinners, McBrine and George Dockrell, with a six and reverse-swept four respectively off their first balls. Dockrell however slowed it down immediately and had Tamim stranded in the charge, only for Niall O'Brien to fumble the stumping chance. Tamim made it back as he saw O'Brien looking for the ball before breaking the bails. Both men were looking at square-leg umpire Nigel Llong to at least go upstairs but replays showed that he was justifiably comfortable not to.
The failed encore
In Ireland's previous game against Oman, in the 18th over, Gary Wilson ended up saving five runs from an Amir Ali smack that looked destined for a six, until he flung himself full length and brought the ball back inside the rope. Wilson was under another high ball on the midwicket boundary in this match but, this time, Tamim's hit went for six as he couldn't manage to flap the ball back into play.
The change strip
This was the first time the Bangladesh team had worn any other colour than predominantly green. The red all over with green sleeves was apparently decided upon by the players, as Mashrafe Mortaza had been talking about giving his side something different to wear in T20s. In the previous game they wore a more usual combination of green with red jersey sleeves.
