What boosted the innings was a brilliant showing by Benny Howell, who smashed three boundaries and five hits over the fence in his unbeaten 53 coming in just 28 deliveries. Rilee Rossouw added 44 before he was sent back by Mohammad Saifuddin.
The partnership was broken by Shafiul Islam, who cleaned up Haque for 39, but it was too little too late. Lewis, who carted five boundaries and three sixes en route to his 71* found an able partner in Shamsur Rahman (34 off 15) as the duo took their side home to victory and trigger wild celebrations in the Victorians camp.
