Plenty of excitement in store. Don't forget to join us. Cheers! 

Mahmudullah, the victorious skipper of Bangladesh, says that they will take this win but there are a lot of areas they need to improve. Hopes that everyone is happy and thanks the crowd for coming and supporting. Adds that Oman were in the hunt initially. He praises the stand between Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Naim but also admits that they were not up to the mark with the new ball. Feels they need to address that area. Thinks that the bowling in the death overs has been doing good and Bangladesh will have to show improvement with both bat and ball in the first six overs. 

Zeeshan Maqsood, the captain of Oman, says that it was a chaseable task after the way they started. Feels that in the last 5-6 overs, they didn't bat well and lost too many wickets. Credits the Bangla bowlers for the way they bowled. Tells that it was not a big margin in the last 5 overs and it's up to the players to get the job done. Adds that there was no crowd pressure and in fact, that was a confidence booster for them. Says that it's cricket and they will try to bounce back and make the home crowd happy. Mentions that they have to see where they went wrong and track that.

SHAKIB AL HASAN IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH! He says that losing to Scotland hurt the whole team but credits the way the Scots played. Adds that Scotland showed a lot of confidence and he feels that Bangladesh let the game slip away in the first game. Says that the team talk was slightly tough and they wanted to come back stronger. Praises Oman and reckons that they were in the game but feels that Bangladesh's experience played a part. On Oman, Shakib feels that they were in the game for 15 overs and they played with a lot of heart. Tells that Bangladesh have another game that they need to win and they want to beat Papua New Guinea and see what happens.

Presentation time...

Earlier in the match, Bangladesh's decision to bat first didn't turn out to be too fruitful. Barring the knocks of Mohammad Naim and Shakib Al Hasan and their 80-run association, there wasn't much in their batting. Mahmudullah played a little cameo to push their score beyond the 150-run mark but it wasn't the kind of performance Bangladesh would have expected. Oman were brilliant with the ball with Bilal Khan and Fayyaz Butt bagging three wickets apiece but they were below-par in the field and dropped quite a few catches. In hindsight, that cost them 20-25 runs extra and proved to be their undoing.

To start with, Bangladesh were clumsy in the field. Oman started positively and they were assisted by a few dropped catches. Jatinder Singh was the focal point of Oman's batting and his knock along with a couple of partnerships constructed by him laid a good platform for the hosts. At the halfway mark, they needed 84 runs off 60 balls with 8 wickets in the bag. The equation narrowed down to 64 required off 42 balls when Jatinder Singh was dismissed by Shakib Al Hasan but from there on Bangladesh did well to tighten the noose. Mahedi Hasan's four overs of gold in which he gave away just 14 runs completely squeezed the life out of this chase and Oman eventually surrendered. 

Victory for Bangladesh and they stay alive in the tournament! They were given a real scare by Oman in the first 10 overs but eventually, the home team's lack of experience in taking advantage of a good position cost them. Still, you have to praise Oman for putting up a fight against a better team.

Mahedi Hasan to Sandeep Goud, NOT OUT! The foot never left the crease. Tossed up, landing fuller around off, the ball lands and turns away slightly, missing Goud's attempted defense. Nurul Hasan collects the ball and whips the bails off and appeals loudly. The TV umpire is called in to have a look. He first checks for the outside edge. Nothing on the UltraEdge and the replays show that the foot never left the crease. Goud is safe.

Is that stumping? The umpire takes it upstairs to confirm. First the third umpire checks for any outside edge. The UltraEdge shows no bat is involved, as there is a flat line when the ball passes the bat. The replay also shows Goud had his back leg grounded the whole time. He is safe and still out in the middle. The final decision is not out.

Shakib Al Hasan to Jatinder Singh, OUT! CAUGHT! Another wicket falls and this is the big wicket of Jatinder Singh. It looked like a tough catch but Liton Das has made it look very easy. Oman are losing wickets quickly now and Bangladesh are bouncing back well. This is again bowled slightly fuller, but the line is around middle and leg, Singh gets low on one knee and smacks his sweep shot to the right of Das at deep square leg, who shuffles quickly to that side and holds onto this. 64 more needed in 42 balls.

Mahedi Hasan to Zeeshan Maqsood, OUT! CAUGHT! What a great catch. Bangladesh have been off-colour with their fielding so far but this catch is top-notch. Mustafizur Rahman dropped one early on, but this time, he redeems himself. Fuller this time, slightly wider outside off, Zeeshan Maqsood gets on his one knee and looks for the big slog-sweep over the leg side, but he only hits it with the lower half of the blade. The ball balloons up in the air towards deep square leg. Rahman there, runs to his right, keeps his eyes up, and gobbles this up with a dive. Mahedi Hasan roars in delight. 73 runs needed in 52 balls.

Taskin Ahmed to Zeeshan Maqsood, SIX! Ohhhhh! Magnificent. What a shot. A pacy delivery this time, around 144 clicks, a little too straight, Zeeshan Maqsood uses his wrists and powers this one over deep square leg.
10.2
1
Taskin Ahmed to Jatinder Singh, Slower in pace, back of a length, around off, Singh taps this to backward point for one.
10.1
1
Taskin Ahmed to Zeeshan Maqsood, Shorter, around off, pulled to the deep square leg region for one.

DRINKS! It has been a good phase of play for both the teams, but in our opinion, Oman have the upper hand, as they have the extra runs as compared to what Bangladesh had at the same moment. However, Oman would hope the current pair is able to take the game deep. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have dropped a few chances and would hope to chip wickets at regular intervals and make inroads into the Oman batting line-up.

Mustafizur Rahman to Kashyap Prajapati, Shout for an lbw! Not given. This one pitched outside leg and moved towards the stumps, Kashyap Prajapati failed to keep it out and was rapped on the pads. They appealed but nothing from the umpire. Kashyap wanted a run but was sent back. Before that, the fielder from point had a shy at the striker's end but missed. Had he hit the stumps, it would have been curtains for Kashyap Prajapati.

Mustafizur Rahman to Kashyap Prajapati, Fullish and around leg, bending into the batsman, Kashyap Prajapati helps it off his pads to mid-wicket.

Who will walk out now? Kashyap Prajapati it is.

Review time. Aqib Ilyas takes it upstairs for an lbw review. The on-field decision is out. The UltraEdge shows the pad is hit first and not the bat. The Ball Tracker shows three reds. Aqib Ilyas has to depart early. The on-field decision stands.

Mustafizur Rahman to Aqib Ilyas, OUT! LBW! Terrific delivery from Mustafizur Rahman, he lands it on a length around middle and off, and gets it to move back in a bit, Ilyas shows very little footwork as he attempts to flick it on the leg side. He misses and is rapped on the pads. They appeal and the finger has gone up. Aqib Ilyas is quick to take the DRS. The UltraEdge shows that there is some wood but it's after brushing the pads. The impact is in line and the Ball Tracker confirms that it's hitting the off stump. Early success for Bangladesh!
