    Hang on!

  • 5:00 PM IST

    Drama, more drama! Mohammad Nawaz is not ready and Mahmudullah has delivered. It breaks the stumps but Nawaz has his hands raised to show that he was not ready. Tension. Pressure. No argument done by Bangladesh. Mahmudullah gets ready to reload.

  • 4:59 PM IST

    Mohammad Nawaz is the next batsman and he will be on strike. Super Over, anyone?

  • 4:58 PM IST

    19.5 Mahmudullah to Iftikhar Ahmed, out, OUT! TAKEN! This game does not fail to surprise us even more. With just 2 needed, Pakistan have lost one more wicket. Mahmudullah comes over the wicket and serves a fuller ball this time, slanting away outside off, Iftikhar Ahmed gets low and looks to smack this across the line, but he only connects this with the outside edge. The ball loops up towards the point region and Yasir Ali (sub) pouches this easily. 2 needed to win and one needed for the Super Over. Who will keep their nerve?

  • 4:57 PM IST

    19.4 Mahmudullah to Iftikhar Ahmed, SIX, SIX! WOW! Iftikhar Ahmed delivers for the visitors! No hat-trick for Mahmudullah and Ahmed completely smashes this one. This is bowled fuller now, around off, Iftikhar Ahmed gets low and smokes this one over the bowler and well over long off right now. 2 needed in 2 now! 

  • 4:56 PM IST

    The crowd is going bonkers. This place is buzzing. Mahmudullah is on a hat-trick. Khushdil Shah is the new batsman but Iftikhar Ahmed will be on strike as the batsmen had crossed.

  • 4:55 PM IST

    19.3 Mahmudullah to Haider Ali, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Two-in-two and Pakistan are falling apart right at the end. The skipper is delivering and Bangladesh are well on course to win this game. Mahmudullah comes ’round the wicket and serves a slightly shorter ball, around middle, Haider Ali backs away and tonks this one towards long on. It does not look like it has been timed all that well and it goes straight to Najmul Hossain Shanto, who takes it, the ball pops out, but he manages to hold on. 8 needed in 3 now and Mahmudullah is on a hat-trick now! 

  • 4:54 PM IST

    Iftikhar Ahmed arrives but it will be Haider Ali on strike.

  • 4:54 PM IST

    19.2 Mahmudullah to Sarfaraz Ahmed, out, OUT! TAKEN! Bangladesh are not going to make this easy for Pakistan as Mahmudullah gets a wicket now. The pressure is on the visitors right now. Mahmudullah bowls this slightly shorter, around off, Sarfaraz Ahmed gets on his knees and slog-sweeps it towards deep mid-wicket. It looks like it has gone all the way but Mohammad Naim right near the ropes gobbles this one up. 8 needed in 4 now! 

  • 4:53 PM IST

    19.1 Mahmudullah to Sarfaraz Ahmed, no run, DOT! What a start for Mahmudullah. Slightly fuller, tossed up, around off, spins in slightly with extra bounce, Sarfaraz Ahmed looks to sweep it away but misses and gets hit on the body. 

  • 4:51 PM IST

    Who will bowl the final over? Mahmudullah has taken responsibility. Bold move.

  • 4:51 PM IST

    18.6 Shohidul Islam to Haider Ali, 2 runs, Yes, he does finish things well but Pakistan get two off the final ball of the penultimate over. Right in the blockhole, on middle, dug out through mid-wicket and two runs are taken comfortably. 8 needed off the final over! 

  • 4:50 PM IST

    18.5 Shohidul Islam to Sarfaraz Ahmed, 1 run, Slower ball again, back of a length, on the body, pulled to deep square leg for one. Can Islam end the over well?

  • 4:50 PM IST

    18.4 Shohidul Islam to Sarfaraz Ahmed, no run, DOT AGAIN! Well bowled this time. No pace on this delivery, it’s served on a fuller length outside off, Ahmed looks to crack this through the line but fails to connect. 

  • 4:49 PM IST

    18.3 Shohidul Islam to Haider Ali, 1 run, Fuller, outside off, drilled to sweeper cover and only one is taken. Not much damage done to Bangladesh on the Free Hit! 

  • 4:48 PM IST

    18.3 Shohidul Islam to Sarfaraz Ahmed, no ball, 1 run, NO BALL! Poor from Islam. He serves a waist-high full toss on the body, Ahmed works this wide of short fine leg and takes one. He wants another but slips at the non-striker’s end. Free Hit coming up now…

  • 4:47 PM IST

    18.2 Shohidul Islam to Haider Ali, 1 run, Back of a length, outside off, Haider Ali flat-bats this one but without much timing. It falls safely at mid off and they take a run.

  • 4:47 PM IST

    18.1 Shohidul Islam to Haider Ali, no run, DOT! A back-of-the-hand slower ball this time, outside off, stays low this time, Ali misses his shot to the off side this time. A good start by Islam! 

  • 4:45 PM IST

    Long discussion. Mahmudullah is having a chat with his players to decide who will bowl the 19th over. Debutant Shohidul Islam has been given the responsibility.

  • 4:45 PM IST

    17.6 Taskin Ahmed to Haider Ali, 1 run, Just 4 off this one! A near-yorker, around off, jammed out towards mid off for a quick single. Pakistan needs 15 more from the last 12 deliveries! 

  • 4:44 PM IST

    17.5 Taskin Ahmed to Sarfaraz Ahmed, 1 run, A single now as this is stroked through mid on. A tidy over from Taskin so far! Can he end it well?

  • 4:43 PM IST

    17.4 Taskin Ahmed to Sarfaraz Ahmed, no run, Outside off on a length, Sarfaraz’ punch finds the point fielder yet again. Two dots now! 

  • 4:42 PM IST

    17.3 Taskin Ahmed to Sarfaraz Ahmed, no run, Around off, tapped to the fielder at point, who has a shy at the striker’s end but misses. Sarfaraz was going nowhere though. 

  • 4:42 PM IST

    17.2 Taskin Ahmed to Haider Ali, 1 run, Well bowled by Taskin! A low, pacy full toss, on off, Haider taps this through mid on and takes one. Wants another but Sarfaraz Ahmed sends him back. 

  • 4:41 PM IST

    17.1 Taskin Ahmed to Sarfaraz Ahmed, 1 run, A low full toss around off, hit to the fielder at long on for one. 

  • 4:40 PM IST

    Taskin Ahmed (2.1-0-12-0) is back into the attack.

  • 4:39 PM IST

    16.6 Mahedi Hasan to Haider Ali, no run, On middle, pushed back to the bowler now. 19 more needed from 18! 

  • 4:39 PM IST

    16.5 Mahedi Hasan to Haider Ali, FOUR, FOUR! Streaky boundary! Everything going the way of Pakistan and Ali right now. Fuller, floated, around off, Haider Ali looks for the big, booming drive through covers but only manages an outside edge. The ball sneaks past short third man and runs away to the fence. 

  • 4:37 PM IST

    Stumping appeal against Haider Ali. It has been referred upstairs. Was the back foot in the air? It did come up for a while but was planted when the bails were dislodged.

  • 4:37 PM IST

    16.4 Mahedi Hasan to Haider Ali, no run, NOT OUT! Ali is safe right now. Fuller this time, tossed up too, outside off, stays a touch low as Ali looks to work at this but misses. The keeper collects the ball and at the very last moment, seems to have whipped the bails off as Ali just lifts his foot at the last moment. The TV umpire is called in to have a look. First, they have a look at the UltraEdge and there is no bat on this. His foot is grounded too when the bails came off. Safe.
