    0.1 rush of blood and the man who made two centuries in the ODI series is out first ball. Steps out to slap this over cover, Nurse cleverly shortened his length and beat him with one that was pushed through. Smart stumping by Ramdin. 0/1
    0.4 the slider has done in Soumya. What a beauty! This one drifts in, the length is a touch fuller and he makes the cardinal sin of playing back. Big, big mistake. The ball skids through to beat the edge and crash into the stumps. 5/2
    5.2 pure pace and the short ball has done the trick. Liton looks to pull, gets this high on the bat. It didn't help that he was hitting into the wind either and Fletcher, lurking around the corner at deep square, didn't make a mistake. 43/3
    5.3 has this been taken? Looks like it has. Kesrick Williams, you beauty. Tremendous control, presence of mind and skill to take this outstanding catch at third man. Shakib gets on top of the bounce and slashes this up and over. For most parts, this seems to be heading all the way. Kesrick times his jump well with the momentum taking him back, but he manages to get both hands on the ball. Takes the catch but quickly realises he'd be going over, so tosses it back into the field of play and takes it just as he comes back in. Shakib is shell shocked, he can't believe what he's just seen. What awareness. Bangladesh are unravelling. Another short ball, another wicket. 43/4
    9.3 this time he's holed out to third man. Clever captaincy, Rovman Powell was moved a lot finer from square third man. But then you still have to execute the bowling plans well to get there. He bowled this short and into the body again to cramp Mushfiqur for room, so much that despite arching back he couldn't get the width he would've liked. Ended up ramping this straight to the fielder. 90/5
    16.1 the dipping yorker has done the trick. Kesrick has taken off on a lap of honour, followed by a dance jig. Mahmudullah completely foxed as he advances. Didn't see this coming, did he? Totally deceived by the change in pace as he looks to heave across the line. Missed it completely as the ball honed back in to beat his swing and crash into the stumps. 125/7
    14.1 first an appeal for lbw, but as it turns out, the batsman has been bowled. Mahmudullah could have been run out too, you know? This nipped back in to beat the inside edge and deflect off the pad to the keeper. Along the way, it clipped the bail too. The batsman wandered outside the crease as they decided to take the run, only to see the keeper under-arm throw the ball directly at the striker's end. Long way out of his crease. Mahmudullah has survived the run out only because the ball clipped the bail. 116/6
    18.1 holes out to long-on. The slower ball meant he had to force the pace on this heave from outside off, not enough muscle into the stroke. Easy catch. 132/8
    18.3 makes room, Kesrick cleverly bangs it in short to cramp him for room. He still tries to deflect this past the keeper but can only glove this through to Ramdin. Fourth for Kesrick and boy, hasn't he deserved his wickets 137/9
