So that's it from this one. With this Bangla win, it means it's going to go down to the decider. It takes place in Dhaka on Saturday, at 1700 local (1100 GMT). Do join in for that. Cheers!

Shakib Al Hasan is awarded the MAN OF THE MATCH. He had a terrific outing with the bat wherein he scored 42 off 26 and also, his 5-wicket haul took the Windies batting order apart. That ensured his side won the game.

Post the good batting show, they wreaked havoc with the ball. Shai Hope blazed right from the start and was looking like scoring another big one, but he departed soon. Post that, it was a mere procession, with Rovman Powell the only one to put up any kind of resistance with his fifty. Shakib derailed the Windies batting order with his maiden T20I 5-fer, and the rest, barring Saifuddin, chipped in with the wickets too. A dominating performance, one which the home side would be thoroughly proud of.

An emphatic victory for the hosts as they level the series 1-1. They were always ahead in this game from the time they were put in to bat. Liton Das took the attack to the Windies bowlers right from the word go. Put on two brisk stands with Tamim and Sarkar to set the tone for the game and scored a fifty too. A couple of wickets were lost in quick succession, but then the experienced heads of Shakib and Mahmudullah took the game completely away from the visitors, as the duo added 91 runs between them in no time. It helped the Tigers post a total well in excess of 200 on the board.

Mahmudullah to O Thomas, OUT! That's the final wicket down of the Windies. Tossed up on middle, Thomas goes for a typical tailender's shot. He tries to hit it across the line and heave it over the fence but misses the ball completely and it hits the off stump. BANGLADESH WIN THIS MATCH BY 36 RUNS and level the series.

M Rahman to R Powell, OUT! Powell is a goner and this time he has ran out of luck. Once again Rahman bowls fuller and takes pace off the delivery this time. Powell tries to lift it over long on but all he could do was find the top edge. The ball went high in the sky and Tamim Iqbal takes a good catch, coming in from the boundary.

M Rahman to R Powell, Once again full, Powell tries to go arieal but finds the top edge. The ball doesn't travel much and Mustafizur dives to take the catch near where a mid-wicket would have been had he been inside the circle. He cannot get his hands to it. And with that lucky escape Powell brings up his maiden T20I half century and Windies total goes past 150.
15.3

M Rahman to R Powell, Full on middle, Powell tries to go over the long on region but doesn't connect well. Maybe that was a blessing in disguised as the ball falls short of the fielder at long on. The batsmen take a couple.

Al Hasan to F Allen, OUT! Bowled 'em! Fifer for the Bangla skipper! The ball is pretty much a straight one. Allen goes for a huge slog over deep mid-wicket and misses the ball completely. It goes and hits the leg stump. Shakib is not even celebrating. He just walks up to his teammate like it is too easy for him. The seventh one is down and the Windies look all but out here.
