For Bangladesh, Rakibul Hasan bagged three wickets while Sakib took two.
In reply, Bangladesh ended on 256 for six in 50 overs and the match ended in a tie.

But in the fourth wicket stand, Towhid Hridoy and Shahadat Hossain added 160 runs to recover the innings.
While Towhid struck a century (104*), Shahadat fell for 76. Bangladesh needed 9 runs in the last over. But they managed eight and fell short of one run.
