    [Wicket] Upper 11.2; Prohibition 67/5: Mahdi Hassan, who has been living dangerously since he came to the bat, has been cut off from the tradition of Adam Zamba. The right-hand man went down to the track but fails to connect and the wicketkeeper does the rest. Previously, Mahedi skied on the ball on three occasions, but managed to survive, as each time the ball fell a little from a current Aussie star. However, Mahedi had hit Zampa six times earlier and appeared to have settled shortly thereafter. But a sudden sweat saw him leave after a 24-ball 23.

    Tigers in trouble as Shakib and Riyadh leave quickly

    [Wicket] Upper 9.3; Ban 59/4: Bangladesh loses another crucial wicket – that of Captain Mahmudullah Riyad. Shortly after the end of Shakib, Mahmudullah lost his wicket to the rotating Ashton Agar. The ball was spinning away from the right hand, but Mahmudullah played and got an inner edge as he dragged it to his logs. Bangladesh loses two crucial wickets in just six deliveries.

    Shakib falls after a ball 17 to 26

    [Wicket] Upper 8.3; Ban 58/3: Andrew Tye dealt the biggest blow to Bangladesh as he picked up Shakib Al Hasan’s award-winning wicket, which looked ominous. Shakib, who started with three limits from Mitchell Starc, had broken Tye for a lower leg limit in the previous tradition. However, Tye returned as Shakib played across the line and paid the price for it with his stalks falling off. Shakib comes out on top with a promising 17-ball 26.

    Soumya, Naim leave early

    [Wicket] Upper 3.1; Prohibition 21/2: Mohamed Naim falls shortly after the departure of Sumia Sarkar. A delivery by Josh Hazlewood from above the wicket was kept a little low and Naim could not get his bat down in time as the ball hit the stump. Naim goes after 13-ball 9.

    Soumya fails once again

    [Wicket] Upper 2.2; Prohibition 9/1: Left-handed opener Soumya Sarkar once again failed as he is not doing well. Trying to cross the line, Soumya saw his stalks being torn down by a Mitchell Starc tradition. Soumya, who scored two in the first T20I, fails to open his account this time and the left-hander has only himself to blame, as there was absolutely no leg movement.

    Bangladesh reduces Australia to 121 for seven

    Left-handed ace Mustafizur Rahman turned three wings to help Bangladesh cut Australia to sub-121 for seven in the second T20I at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today.

    It was a top bowling show by the Tigers with Mustafizour being the bowlers’ choice, as he finished with impressive figures of three for 23 of his four overs. Another left-wing soldier in Shoriful Islam also took two, giving just 27 points in four overs.

    It was Mahedi who gave the Tigers their first breakthrough, with left-handed Alex Carey caught in the middle of the third over. Mustafizur took Josh Philippe to the final of his powerplay as the Aussies struggled to score.

    Moises Henriques and Mitchell Marsh then put together a crucial 57-run third wicket stand, but top all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan pushed Henriques to the 15th over before the duo could accelerate. Australia has never shown control of the game since, as it continued to lose wickets at regular intervals.

    For Australia, basketball player Marsh scored a high team with 42 balls 45 before being sent off by Shoriful in the 17th over.

    The threads were also convenient for Bangladesh with Shakib and Mahedi picking up a wicket each while bowling very stingy.

    Fizz takes two to two

    [Wicket] Upper 17.4; From: 103/6: They are two in two for Mustafizur! Fizz gets an extra bounce from the slowest delivery and this completely deceives the left-handed Ashton Agar. The rising ball hit Agar’s gloves and the goalkeeper got a simple grip.

    [Wicket] Upper 17.3; From: 103/5: Mustafizur Rahman takes the second of the day. This time it’s Australian Governor Matthew Wade, who goes offside to paddle, saw his stalks fly as he failed to connect.

    Shoriful rejects Marsh in form

    [Wicket] Upper 16.1; From 99/4: Awesome Islam takes the form and dangerous cove of Mitchell Mars. With Australia looking to accelerate to death, Marsh went for a big off-side jump but only manages to get a faint tip back at the goalkeeper. Marsh’s earnings end after a hit with 42 balls 45-run.

    Shakib removes Henriques to end the crucial collaboration

    [Wicket] 14.2 Overs: Aus 88/3: Shakib Al Hasan gives Bangladesh a breakthrough as he takes over Moises Henriques’s wicket and finishes a 57-game streak between Henriques and Mitchell Marsh. Henriques tries to get hold of the ball but it slips out of his hands. Henriques goes after a promising 25-ball 30.

    Marsh, Henriques rebuild after hits from Fizz, Mahedi

    Update after 12 exaggerations: Aus 67/2

    After the first two attacks by Mustafzur Rahman and Mahedi Hasan, Australia is being rebuilt through Mitchell Marsh and Moises Henriques. However, the Tigers did a very good job of keeping the scoring rate under control, not allowing the Australians to score more than six or more points. The collaboration between Marsh and Henriques has now reached 36 of the 38 deliveries.

    Mahedi, Fizz strike in powerplay

    [Wicket] Over 5.4, Aus: 31/2: Mustafizur Rahman takes the other Australian opener Josh Philip. Philppe completely read the rhythm and length of the ball as he moved through the bunkers to play on the side of his foot, but he completely disregarded the Mustafizur trademark, a slower delivery. The ball hit the top of the legs, as Australia lost its second wicket. Philippe leaves after 10 of 14.

    [Wicket] Over 2.3, Aus: 13/1: Mahedi Hasan, who is out of line, gives the Tigers an early advance, having left-handed Alex Curry catch in the middle in the third over. Carey, after another disappointing performance, comes out after a run-ball 11.

    Australia won the race and chose to play first against Bangladesh in the second T20I at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today.

    The Bangladeshi team is in high spirits after scoring 23 wins in the first T20I – the Tigers’ first T20I win over Australia – at the same venue yesterday. The victory also meant that the Tigers are now 1-0 ahead in a series of five games.

    The popular Premier Shakib Al Hasan looks at two unique records in this series. The 34-year-old all-rounder is just four wickets away from becoming only the second and first Bangladeshi player to win 100 wickets in the T20Is.

    The only player to reach the 100 wicket mark in the T20Is is Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga, who took 107 wickets in 84 games.

    Reaching the 100 wicket milestone in the T20Is, Shakib will also become the first player to have a double 100 wickets and 1000 runs. Shakib, playing in his 81st T20I, has scored 1640 runs with an average of 23.76.

    Can Shakib reach these milestones in today’s game against the Aussies? Although the second T20I is played on a different pitch, the Mirpur pitch behavior – usually with plenty of help to the spinners – will not be unlikely to see Shakib add another feather to the lid.

    Bangladesh: Mahmudullah Riyadh, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Shakib Al Hasan, Nurul Hasan Sohan, Afif Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Shoriful Islam, Nasum Ahmed

    Australia: Alex Carey, Josh Philippe, Mitchell Marsh, Moises Henriques, Matthew Wade, Ashton Turner, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
