37.4 - Rahat Ali to Rahim, FOUR, poor bowling. Length ball right in the slot, Rahim lofts it easily over mid-on

37.3 - Rahat Ali to Rahim, FOUR, these two are just unstoppable at the moment. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Rahim advances and lofts it over extra-cover. He gave himself a bit of room to free his arms and made great contact

36.4 - Ajmal to Tamim, FOUR, in the airrrrr and just past the outstretched arm of Rahat Ali at short third man. Tamim races down the track and looks for the inside-out hit, he slices it, but luckily got enough on it to clear the infield

34.5 - Ajmal to Tamim, FOUR, fifth ODI hundred for Tamim. He takes his gloves off and points five with his fingers to the crowd. Probably he was telling them that it was his fifth ton. Flatter delivery down the leg-side, Tamim glances it fine past short fine leg and it runs away for four. Tamim gets a tight hug from his partner Mushfiqur Rahim. He took 75 balls to complete his fifty, but he scored his next 50 runs off just 37 balls

23.4 - Sohail to Tamim, FOUR, reverse sweep and four! Sohail was looking to fire this one outside off as Tamim set himself up for the reverse sweep, he does well to bisect the gap between short third man and backward point for a boundary

21.0 - Saad Nasim to Rahim, FOUR, that's a dreadful delivery! A long hop from Nasim, Rahim rocks back and pulls it over mid-wicket for a boundary

6.0 - Rahat Ali to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, that's much better! Full and on Soumya Sarkar's pads, whipped away over mid-wicket for another boundary

5.5 - Rahat Ali to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, that's slugged away by Soumya Sarkar, should break the shackles, short of a length and on the stumps, Soumya Sarkar heaves at it, gets it high on the bat but has enough to clear mid-on, the ball races away to the fence

3.3 - Rahat Ali to Tamim, FOUR, nicely played by Tamim, back of a length and well outside off, Tamim rides with the bounce and hits it up and over point, the ball races away to the fence in a jiffy

2.5 - Junaid Khan to Tamim, FOUR, cracking shot, fraction too full and well outside off, Tamim leans forward, presents the full face of the bat, punches it on the up and drives it past cover for a boundary

47.5 - Riaz to S Rahman, SIX, incredible shot. Full and way outside off stump, he's picked that up nicely and smashed it over long-on. Gee! That was a great connection as he had to reach out for the shot. Brings up the 300 for Bangladesh

27.5 - Sohail to Tamim, SIX, nice hit! Flighted delivery just outside off stump, Tamim gets down on one knee and slog-sweeps it hard over the deep mid-wicket fence

50.0 - Riaz to Shakib, out Lbw!! Shakib almost in a funny manner reviews that. He knew that he was out, just signalled to the umpire and walked off the field. The Hawk-Eye comes in and it says impact in-line and crashing into the base of middle stump. Inswinging low full toss, Shakib walks across and tries to ramp it away to fine leg, but misses and is hit plumb in front. The extra ball gives Riaz his 4th wicket. Shakib lbw b Riaz 31(27) [4s-4]

49.4 - Riaz to S Rahman, out Bowled!! Riaz puts out a loud appeal. Was he not aware that the batsman was bowled? Full and on the leg stump from round the wicket, Rahman misses the reverse sweep and the ball hits the leg stump. S Rahman b Riaz 15(7) [4s-1 6s-1]

47.2 - Riaz to Rahim, out Caught by Sarfraz Ahmed!! Full and just tailing away, Rahim stays leg-side of the ball and slogs, gets an outside edge and the keeper makes no mistake. The umpire checks for the no-ball but Riaz's foot was well behind the line. Rahim walks off to a good round of applause. End of an excellent knock from the right-hander. Rahim c Sarfraz Ahmed b Riaz 106(77) [4s-13 6s-2]

41.4 - Riaz to Tamim, out Caught by Rizwan!! Rizwan and Azhar Ali almost collided and dropped the catch. Tamim walks off to a standing ovation. Riaz bangs this slower ball very short, Tamim tries to manufacture some pace and flat-bat it over the infield, but completely mistimes the ball. Mid-off and extra-cover go for the catch, luckily for Pakistan, Rizwan took the catch just before Ali put his hands across his team-mate. End of a fine innings. Tamim c Rizwan b Riaz 132(135) [4s-15 6s-3]

20.0 - Rahat Ali to Mahmudullah, out Bowled!! Cleaned up! Mahmudullah had a rush of blood last ball and he has now lost his middle stump! Change of pace from Rahat, the slower ball and on the middle-stump line, Mahmudullah made room outside leg and was looking to go inside out over extra cover, is done in by the lack of pace and the middle pole is knocked out. First wicket for Rahat. Pakistan continue to fightback. Mahmudullah b Rahat Ali 5(18)

13.2 - Riaz to Tamim, out Soumya Sarkar Run Out!! Exceptional piece of fielding from Riaz, the crowd has been silenced. This was pitched up and held its line outside off, Tamim was cramped for room as he looked to dab it towards the off-side, gets an inside edge onto the pads and stops near the popping crease. Soumya Sarkar called for a quick single, Riaz is quick to react, runs across, picks up the ball and hits the stumps. Soumya Sarkar was struggling all along and has to walk back to the hut. Soumya Sarkar run out (Riaz) 20(36) [4s-3]

28.3 - Azhar Ali to Rahim, 1 run, he's mistimed it and must be an easy catch. Oh dear! Junaid Khan drops a sitter. How costly is that drop going to be? Flighted delivery on the stumps, Rahim goes for the slog-sweep but gets a top edge, mid-wicket moves to his right, he had it covered, but dropped it

22.2 - Saad Nasim to Tamim, 1 run, dropped! That was an absolute dolly for the bowler, it was a rubbish ball, full-toss from Nasim, chipped back at him, he isn't in a great position, the ball bursts through his fingers

23.2 - Sohail to Tamim, 1 run, 29th ODI fifty for Tamim, it's been a responsible knock from the opener, flatter and just outside off, eased down towards long-on for a single

44.1 - Rubel to Rizwan, FOUR, poor delivery from Rubel, it was a full toss well wide outside off, Rizwan drives it wide of mid-off and the ball rockets away to the fence

43.4 - Taskin Ahmed to Riaz, FOUR, full delivery just outside off, Riaz leans forward and goes for the expansive drive on the off-side, he gets an inside edge and the ball runs away to the fine leg fence, the fielder was inside the circle and had no chance of stopping that

43.2 - Taskin Ahmed to Rizwan, FOUR, low full toss on the stumps, Rizwan waits and smashes it over mid-wicket, the ball crashes into the fence in no time

38.1 - Shakib to Rizwan, FOUR, bowled fuller and on middle stump line, Rizwan had made his mind there as he goes down on one knee and slog sweeps it to the deep mid-wicket fence

37.1 - A Sunny to Fawad Alam, FOUR, to long on

36.3 - Shakib to Rizwan, FOUR, poor fielding from Taskin at short third man. It was bowled slightly short and wide outside off, Rizwan cuts it hard, Tasking was running to his right and overruns the ball, it runs away to the fence in no time

36.2 - Shakib to Rizwan, FOUR, drifting on the pads once again, Rizwan kneels down and slog sweeps it to the left of short fine leg, the ball runs away to the fence in no time, Shakib needs to get his line right

28.4 - Abul Hasan to Rizwan, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries for Rizwan, it was short and slightly wide outside off, Rizwan cuts it hard, the fielder at backward point dives to his left but fails to get a hand on it. The ball runs away to the fence in no time

28.3 - Abul Hasan to Rizwan, FOUR, back of a length delivery outside off, Rizwan punches it off the back foot and gets it wide of mid-off, who dives to his left, but the ball beats him and crashes into the fence

28.1 - Abul Hasan to Sohail, FOUR, edged and four! That was mighty close to the keeper. It was full and outside off, Sohail gets lured into the drive and goes after it without much feet movement. The ball takes the outside edge and beats the keeper who was diving to his left, it was inches away from his gloves and the ball runs away to the fence

27.2 - Taskin Ahmed to Azhar Ali, FOUR, edged and four! It was a length ball outside off, Ali makes rooma and looks to go inside-out towards cover, the ball takes the outside edge and runs away to the right of the keeper and into the third man fence

23.3 - Rubel to Sohail, FOUR, delicate touch! It was just short of a good length and angling away outside off, Sohail stays back, opens the face of the bat at the last moment and gets it to the left of Rahim, the ball runs away to the third man fence in no time

13.5 - Nasir Hossain to Sohail, FOUR, Sohail gives the charge this time and lofts this slightly flatter delivery over mid-wicket, he didn't time it that well, but the ball had enough legs to reach the fence

13.0 - A Sunny to Azhar Ali, FOUR, flatter and outside off, Ali makes room and looks to cut it hard, gets an outside edge that runs away to the third man fence, short third man ran after it, but the ball wins the race

12.0 - Shakib to Hafeez, FOUR, finally Hafeez gets off the mark with a boundary, it was bowled slower and fuller outside off, Hafeez comes down the track and caresses it to the right of cover, who gives chase but the ball wins the race

7.0 - A Sunny to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, Sarfraz comes charging down and drives this full delivery past the non-striker, mid-on was inside the circle and he had no chance of stopping that as the ball was a little too far to his left

6.0 - Taskin Ahmed to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, punched! Super shot from Sarfraz as he hops to this back of a length delivery outside off, gets on top of the bounce and punches it in the gap between cover and backward point for a boundary

45.2 - Shakib to Ajmal, out Lbw!! Ajmal has been given out lbw here. He reviews it and Hawk-Eye shows that the ball was hitting the stumps there. It was a flatter delivery on middle and leg, Ajmal looks to pull it through the on-side and misses. The ball hits the pad, the umpire raised his finger after the bowler appealed. Hawk-Eye showed that the ball was going to hitting the leg stump. The onfield decision stays and Bangladesh win by 79 runs. They go 1-0 up in the 3-match series. Ajmal lbw b Shakib 0(4)

45.0 - Rubel to Ajmal, out Junaid Khan Run Out!! Junaid has been run-out here. At least the umpire thinks so. It was a yorker outside off, Ajmal squeezes it out towards point and sets off, Junaid was out of his crease too. Junaid looks to run back as Sabbin runs in from point, picks the ball and fires in a direct-hit at the non-striker's end. The third umpire took his time and decided that it is out as Junaid just about planted his bat when the bails had gone off. Junaid Khan run out (S Rahman) 0(0)

44.3 - Rubel to Rizwan, out Caught by Nasir Hossain!! Rizwan is gone and this will probably be the end of Pakistan's hopes of winning this game. He went down on his knee and went for the slog sweep on this occasion, gets a top-edge and the Nasir Hossain runs to his right from deep square leg and takes a good catch. Rizwan c Nasir Hossain b Rubel 67(58) [4s-8]

44.0 - Taskin Ahmed to Riaz, out Bowled!! Taskin has the last laugh as Riaz has been outfoxed here. It was a slower delivery from Taskin, Riaz backed away and went for the big slog, he was way too early into the shot and the ball beats his blade, crashes into the top of middle and leg stump. Taskin is jubilant after taking that wicket. Riaz b Taskin Ahmed 8(12) [4s-1]

40.0 - A Sunny to Saad Nasim, out Bowled!! Nasim goes without even disturbing the scorers there. Sunny picks his second of the over and he punches the air in delight. It was the quicker one on the off stump, Nasim made room for the cut and the ball sneaks under his bat, crashes into the off stump. Saad Nasim b A Sunny 0(4)

39.2 - A Sunny to Fawad Alam, out Caught by Soumya Sarkar!! Unlucky way to get out for Alam, but Sunny is delighted as he puts his dancing shoes on. Alam made room even before the ball was bowled and Sunny follows him, cramping him for room. Even though it was a full toss, Alam hits it straight to mid-on. Pakistan slip further and Bangladeshis are on top once again. Fawad Alam c Soumya Sarkar b A Sunny 14(19) [4s-1]

31.5 - Taskin Ahmed to Sohail, out Caught by Mahmudullah!! Sohail departs after a well constructed fifty. Not a great time for the wicket to fall as Pakistan were looking to accelerate. It was banged in short and on middle stump line, Sohail goes for the pull after backing away and gets it high on the bat. Looks like the ball hurried onto him as he went for the pull, the ball was dropping in front of mid-on, who was charging forward and had to dive to complete the catch. Good effort from Mahmudullah to take that catch. Sohail c Mahmudullah b Taskin Ahmed 51(64) [4s-4 6s-1]

27.3 - Taskin Ahmed to Azhar Ali, out Caught by Rahim!! That's a big wicket. Captain Ali goes and Pakistan are three down now. It was a length delivery outside off, Ali tries to cut it very late there, he was cramped for room and also the length was not there for him to play that shot. He ends up edging it to the keeper, who takes a simple catch and throws the ball high in the air in delight. It's a big blow for Pakistan. This is also the highest score by a Pakistani player on captaincy debut. Azhar Ali c Rahim b Taskin Ahmed 72(73) [4s-7]

12.1 - A Sunny to Azhar Ali, out Hafeez Run Out!! Ali comes down the track and pushes this flighted delivery in front of mid-on, he sets off for the single and Hafeez was late to respond. Sarkar runs forward, throws the ball at the striker's end and Rahim does the rest. The throw was right on target and brought about Hafeez's downfall. Hafeez run out (Soumya Sarkar/Rahim) 4(7) [4s-1]

10.2 - A Sunny to Sarfraz Ahmed, out Caught by Nasir Hossain!! Sarfraz perishes trying to play another slog sweep. It was a flighted delivery that was turning away around off, Sarfraz goes down on one knee and slog swept it in the air, Nasir from deep backward square leg runs to his left and takes a good catch. He covered a lot of distance there. It wasn't an easy catch and Nasir did really well to get there in time. Sarfraz Ahmed c Nasir Hossain b A Sunny 24(31) [4s-3]

41.1 - A Sunny to Rizwan, 2 runs, fifty on debut for Rizwan! A full toss on his pads, whipped away in front of straight mid-wicket for a couple of runs

29.4 - Taskin Ahmed to Sohail, 1 run, Sohail gets to his fifty with this single, it was a back of a length angling away outside off, Sohail waits inside the crease, opens the face of the bat and dabs it towards third man

19.5 - Rubel to Azhar Ali, 1 run, Ali reaches his fifty in his first ODI as captain. It was angled in on off, Ali goes across and drops it in front of mid-on, the batsmen charge through for a quick single
