Bangladesh were clinical with the ball and their effort helped the hosts seal comprehensive -run win over qualifiers UAE in Mirpur on Friday.

Scorecard: Bangladesh vs UAE, Asia Cup 2016

As it happened…

# Bangladesh bundle out UAE for 82, register 51-run win in Mirpur

# Add two more, and now Bangladesh are just two wickets away from a big big win

# Tariq goes for a walk, and should keep walking till the pavillion. Beaten by Shakib’s flight, and out stumped for a duck

# And, we have the first hit-wicket of Asia Cup 2016. Skipper Amjad Javed is out cheaply. UAE in deep trouble at 45/6

# 2/2 for Mustafizur. UAE collapse early in the modest chase

# Just when they needed a stand, UAE have lost another one. Anwar the man to depart now

# UAE manage 32/2 in the powerplay. It’s important they stitch a partnership now

# Mustafizur takes a sensational return catch but grounds it as he falls. Top effort doesn’t earn him the wicket

# Bangladesh get the early wicket they were looking for as Kaleem is out playing a nothing shot. 2/1

# Mahmudullah scores 17 off the last six balls, Bangladesh post 133/8 against UAE

# No.7 falls now. Bangladesh skipper Mortaza out for a duck. 114/7

# 2/2 for Amjad. UAE ensuring Bangladesh don’t finish well here. Struggling at 112/6

# High full-toss and Shakib fails to put bat to ball. Bangladesh five down now

# Bangladesh, 94/4, need a move on in the last five overs to post a respectable total

# UAE doing what they did against Sri Lanka – pull things back in the middle overs. Rahim is now out caught-behind. The hosts four down

# Mithun follows Sabbir to the hut. Tries to steal a single when the ball travelled only as far as the wicket-keeper. Bangladesh 81/3

# Sabbir goes for the big one, but finds Tariq in the deep. Rohan with the wicket, Bangladesh 72/2

# UAE not learning. They are not bowling according to their fields. Fine-leg in, and they continue to drift on the pads

# Sarkar tries one shot too many is out after putting on brisk 46 runs for the opening wicket with Mithun. Bangladesh 46/1

# After the miscue, Mithun clobbers one for a maximum and follows it up with a boundary. He’s found his touch now

# Catches win matches, and drops cost you dearly. Shakib would know that by now. Important UAE learn their lessons. Mithun dropped early by Shahzad. Should have been in the hut…

# UAE struggled in the first six overs with the ball against Sri Lanka but pulled things back in the middle overs. Repeat of the same today?

# Hosts off to a watchful start. They are 9/0 at the end of the second over. There is some seam movement but nothing like we saw during the opener. The bouncer, however, is very much there

# Bangladesh asked to bat by UAE in Mirpur

# Bangladesh warm-up ahead of their contest against UAE

“The whole game was excellent. We put them (Sri Lanka) under pressure with the bowling. It was a big set back to lose two wickets to Malinga in the first over. Then we lost two more wickets and it is always difficult to chase. We have a match tomorrow. We will come back and try to do our best,” said Amjad Javed.
