Over 18: 6 runs off the over. Ban 108/7

Over 17: 6 runs and two wickets off the over. Ban 102/7

16.4 Nehra to Mashrafe Mortaza

Two in two for Nehra! Mortaza gets a fullish delivery and he drives that uppishly straight to point.

16.3 Nehra to Mahmudullah

Straight to Rohit in the deep! Mahmudullah slogs another leg-side delivery and doesn’t get the distance as he takes the aerial route this time

Over 16: 11 runs off the over. Ban 96/5

Over 15: 3 runs and the important wicket of Sabbir Rahman came in the over. Ban 85/5

14.1 Pandya to Sabbir Rahman

That must be the easiest catch of the match! Sabbir stays back and pulls the short ball with some power, gets a top edge and that goes high and behind him for Dhoni to take it easily.

Over 14: 6 runs off the over. Ban 82/4

Over 13: 4 runs and one wicket from the over. Ban 76/4

12. 2 Jadeja to Shakib Al Hasan

Over 11: 10 runs off the over. Ban 61/3

Over 10: 3 runs and the wicket of Imrul Kayes came from the over. Ban 51/3

Over 7: 5 runs off the over. Ban 36/2

Over 6: 4 runs off the over. Ban 31/2

Over 5: 8 runs off the over. Ban 27/2

Over 4: Sarkar’s wicket and four runs off the over from Bumrah. 19/2

3.2 Bumrah to Soumya Sarkar

OUT, another one - Sarkar is caught behind! Bumrah banged in a short ball around middle and the ball rose on Sarkar who tried to defend with a horizontal bat and the extra bounce took the glove

Over 3: 6 runs and a wicket from the over. Ban 15/1

2.2 Nehra to Mohammad Mithun

Nehra strikes! The off stump is knocked back. Short on off, Mithun targets the leg side with a swipe but does not connect.
