The visitors lost David Warner early in the chase after he was caught in the deep by Soumya Sarkar off Mustafizur Rahman for 8.

Though Taijul Islam and Shakib Al Hasan did remove Steve Smith and Renshaw respectively but it didn’t change the result of the match. Maxwell who came in at number 5 smacked a maximum over long on to seal the victory for his side. Here’s what pundits and experts have to say about the match.
