West Indies Vs Bangladesh Live Score (T20) Full Scorecard

Bangladesh

Mosaddek Hossain is the new bowler for Bangladesh. Mortaza is trying his options here. After the two dots, Dilruwan gives the strike to Aponso with a single to deep square leg. Next ball, Aponso gets an edge which runs down to third man for a couple of runs. The intent is evident from Bangladesh here. Just one run from his over. The result seems inevitable now. Shot selection has been poor from the Sri Lankan top order. There has not been much assistance from the wicket or in the air for the seamers, but yet they couldn't cope up with the Bangladesh bowling, who to their credit, have kept things simple.

The ball rattles the stumps and 'Fizz' has his second wicket of the innings. Lakmal b Mustafizur 20 He is keeping line just on off stump, he finished off another tidy over. He concedes just three runs from the over. Excellent spell from the former skipper. Rubel continues to bowl short to the batsmen at the crease.

He is trying to hurry the batsmen, with Dilruwan Perera nearly top-edging the ball to the close in fielder. He strays in line on the final two balls, yielding four runs. And as you would expect from the all-rounder, keeps his line and length tight, not allowing the batsmen any room to free their arms. Only two singles come from that over. Bangladesh well and truly on top.

He smashes Hasan off the first ball of his next over mid-wicket for six. Next over, he clears his front leg and hits the ball down the ground from the final ball of Rubel's over.

Rubel continues his spell. Incredibly, Bangladesh take a review and the ball is straight off the bat. The ball takes the top edge a simple catch is taken at point. Sri Lanka need a miracle and a half if they have to chase this down.

Six runs and a wicket come off that over from Rubel. Sri Lanka lose their skipper. Rubel gets the ball to seam off the wicket and Angelo Mathews is plumb in front. He knew he was out, and the umpire had no hesitation is giving the decision.

Is that the game for Bangladesh? Mathews lbw b Rubel 16 Massive mix-up between Mathews and Shanaka on the first ball.

Three dot balls to Shanaka who is now playing with more caution after being given a life. Takes a single with a drive to deep cover. Mathews finds the fielder with a cut to point before ending the over with a single to long on.

No body goes for the catch and Mortaza is not impressed. Shanaka looks to go big but gets a top edge. Substitute Nazmul Islam waits for someone to take it and the ball drops between him and his captain who is looking at him with no expression on his face. Can Shanaka make them pay for this? Tight over to begin from Shakib.

Both Shanaka and Mathews are taking their time and not taking any undue risk. It is vital for them to stitch a stand and get this innings back on track. Mathews is too low at 5. Just like Misbah was for Pakistan. Dasun Shanaka is the new man in. Angelo Mathews will hope that he can stay with him as he looks to get this innings back on track. Shakib Al Hasan is called on for a bowl. Perera was looking desperate against Hasan and he plays down the wrong line to be trapped in front of the stumps.

The players appeal and the umpire rules it out. No reviews left, Perera has to walk back to the hut. Kusal Perera lbw Hasan 11 A quiet over from Hasan who bowled the driving length all over to the left-handed Perera. As Mathews expected during the toss, the pitch seems to have lost some of its pace. Won't be easy for the Sri Lankans, who will now also have to deal with the plethora of slow spinners that Bangladesh will throw at them. Asia Cup Match 2.
