This is Bharath Ramaraj signing off. Hope you enjoyed the game, especially Shakib Al Hasan’s volley of thunderous strokes.
Bangladesh win the game in a convincing fashion with Shakib finishing it off with a fine stroke. A fine victory for Bangladesh.
Sabbir Rahman plays a monstrous shot over mid-wicket for a six. The glorious artwork of his flashing blade was great to watch. Hasan matches him shot for shot with two fine sixes.
Gauchan makes  a fine attempt to take the catch of Rahman but in the end he couldn’t.
Bangladesh batsmen are in cruise mode now.
Regmi keeps a tight leash on Bangladesh batsmen, before Hasan with a dash of bravado smashes a six.
Both batsmen are almost at the same level at the non-striker’s end and finally Anamul is declared run out.A gift of a wicket for Nepal to celebrate.
OUT!Anamul Haque 42(33)
Regmi continues to dart it into the batsmen and straightening the odd delivery. However, it seems like a lost cause for the enthusiastic bunch of Nepal cricketers.

Iqbal gets out for 30 of 22 balls off Regmi’s bowling.
OUT!Tamim Iqbal 30(22)
Mukhiya into the attack. He is skiddy through the air and that isn’t helping him against batsmen who play on the up.
The captain Paras Khadka into the attack by bowling from around the wicket. Tamim Iqbal though with his flashing blade and twinkling footwork dances down the wicket to essay a fine shot over long on for a six. He is certainly in the mood to smash Nepal bowlers.

Nepal bowlers really struggling with the dew situation.
Anamul clears the short boundary with a fine pull shot over square-leg for a six.
Bangladesh openers continue to play with aggression.
Bangladesh start their chase in style. Anamul especially playing some sumptuous strokes.
Al Amin bowling the last over and Binod’s tendency to slog everything isn’t helping him one bit. Nepal end with a score of 126 for 5 with Viswakar getting run out off the last ball.
OUT!S Veswakar 40(43)
Veswakar plays a crackerjack square cut. Both batsmen now have put on the highest partnership for any wicket by Nepal. Both batsmen using the depth of the crease wonderfully well. However Khadka gets out by losing his stumps.
OUT! Khadka 41 (35)
The dew factor isn’t helping Bangladesh spinners. Nepal batsmen especially Khadka taking advantage of it by playing on the up.
Nepal batsmen upping the ante by playing fine strokes.
Another tight over form Hossain. Nepal’s batsmen though have stitched a fifty partnership.
Shakib Al Hasan now bowling from over the wicket. Veswakar tries a wild slog, but fortunately for the right-hander, Mushfiqur misses the stumping chance.

Khadka looking to take the aggressive option by dancing down the wicket to Abdur Razzack, but isn’t able to time the ball with needlepoint precision.
Part-timer, Nasir Hossain into the attack. He is looking to give away nothing to hit for Nepal batsmen by bowling military medium pace.
Amin’s uncanny ability to slant the ball into the batsman is an asset for Bangladesh setup. Nepal though are putting up a fight.
Paras Khadka essays a brilliant shot through the covers. It is easy to notice that he is Nepal’s best batsman.
