As it happened, Asia Cup: Bangladesh vs UAE, Match 3

Bangladesh beat UAE by 51 runs

Mustafizur Rahman, Mortaza, Mahmudullah and Shakib picked up two wickets each while Mohammad Mithun made a crucial 47 as Bangladesh beat UAE by 51 runs to open their account in Asia Cup.

UAE innings:

Out! Usman has no answers to this delivery by Taskin - he is clean bowled and loses his off-stump. UAE are 71/9

Six! Muhammad Usman is a lone fighter for UAE - this time he guides one over fine leg for a six. Good shot by the left-hander. He is on 30 now

Gone and UAE are eight down now. Saqlain Haider gives a simple catch to Mortaza at short extra cover. They are 55/8. Awful batting performance by UAE.

Out! Wickets are falling in cluster here. Fahad Tariq was miles away from his crease and is stumped without any trouble. Shakib Al Hasan gets his first.

Out! This is comical stuff here. Amjad Javed is out hit-wicket. Surely there is no way back for UAE now. They are 45/6

Out! Mustafizur Rahman is on hattrick. This time he picks Swapnil Patil. Patil closed the bat face and got a leading edge which was easily taken by Mortaza at mid-on.

Out! UAE batsmen are falling like pack of cards just like they did against Sri Lanka on Thursday. Mustafizur Rahman picks up a simple catch off his own bowling to dismiss Shahzad. UAE are 34/4 Out! Another wicket tumble and Bangladesh are delighted. Mortaza picks up his second wicket as he gets better of Shaiman Anwar who got an edge and was brilliantly caught by Mahmudullah at backward point. Six! Mohammad Shahzad stands and deliver and he does that in style. Length ball and the batsman hit that dead straight for six. Out! Rohan Mustafa was looking good but he has gifted his wicket away. Big leading edge to third man fielder, who takes a routine catch. He made 18 from 17 deliveries. 5th over: The keeper is up to the stumps for Mortaza and huge appeal for caught behind but it was not out UAE are 20/1 after 4 overs Not Out! Rahman took a splendid return catch to dismiss Rohan Mustafa but replays showed that the ball touched the ground when he was landing. It was a slower ball and Mustafa lofted that in the air. UAE are 16/1 SIX! Brilliant shot by Rohan Mustafa. The delivery was sliding down leg and he whipped it over the deep backward square leg fence for a maximum Out! Wild swing by Muhammad Kaleem and gives easiest of catches at mid on to Mortaza. UAE are 2 for 1 Dropped! Sarkar at the 2nd slip has dropped a rather relatively easy chance. Mustafa survives Players are out in the middle. Rohan Mustafa and Muhammad Kaleem are at the crease for UAE. Taskin Ahmed will open the attack for the hosts Bangladesh innings: Bangladesh finish at thanks to some good hitting by Mahmudullah in the last over. Bangladesh picked up 17 runs off the 20th over. UAE need 134 runs to win after they restricted hosts to 133/8 Out! Bangladesh are falling like pack of cards here. Tremendous bowling effort by UAE here. Slower delivery and the Bangladeshi captain Mortaza hits it straight to the long off fielder. Naveed picks up his second scalp

Bangladesh are in sorts of trouble here. They are 113/6 after 18 overs.

Out! Nurul Hasan hits this one straight to the long-on fielder. This was a rubbish shot and is out for first-ball duck. Amjad Javed is on a hattrick

Out! Amjad Javed has clean bowled Shakib for 13. It was full toss and the left-hander missed it completely. He is out for just 13.

100-up for Bangladesh after 16 overs. Mahmudullah and Shakib Al Hasan are in the middle for the hosts

After 15 overs Bangladesh are 94/4

What a shot! Javed with short ball and Mahmudullah get in the perfect position and hammers it for six over deep mid-wicket. That was a brilliant shot

Out! Mohammad Naveed strikes here. UAE are pulling things back here. Latest man to fall is Rahim, who edges one to UAE keeper. He is out after making just 4

Out! Another one bites the dust for Bangladesh. Mithun is stumped after making solid 47. UAE fighting back here. Rohan Mustafa picks up his first wicket

11 overs: Mushfiqur Rahim has joined Mohammad Mithun in the middle. They are 76 for 2

Out! Rahman falls cheaply here. Rahman dances down the track to a slower delivery and flicks it straight to the man at deep mid-wicket. He is out after making just 6.

Six and four! Mithun is on fire. He is playing some delightful shots in the middle. This time he smashes Shahzad to backward square leg boundary for six and then follows it up with a boundary at fine leg.

50-up for Bangladesh in the 7th over. It has been a good start for the host nation. 53/1 after 7 overs

Out! After smashing first ball of the over for six - Soumya Sarkar (21) gives a simple catch to mid-on. Mohammad Shahzad picks up the first wicket. Bangladesh 46/1

7.25: Mithun is making most of the dropped chance. He smashes Amjad Javed to six over deep midwicket and then cuts one for a boundary.

Another drop! Third mam has now dropped a chance. Although it was a difficult one but UAE should take these type of half chances.

Dropped! If UAE want to win they need to take these type of catches. The fielder at mid-off made a meal out of it and Mithun survives. He went for a pull shot there and top edged it. In the end managed to pick 2 runs.

After end of 3 overs: It has been a watchful start by Bangladesh openers. They are not taking any risks early on. Bangladesh are 16/0 after 3 overs

Four: First boundary of Bangladesh innings comes in the second over. Amjad Javed strays down the leg side and Mohammad Mithun glances it for boundary at fine leg.

1st over: Nueul Hasan, Soumya Sarkar out at the middle, Naveed to start the proceedings for UAE

7.00: Players are out in the middle and we are all set to start

Toss: UAE opt to bowl first against Bangladesh.
