Time for the presentations

Shakib Al Hasan, the winning captain: I think the belief did it for us, after the loss in St Kitts. We had a good chat, had come to an agreement that we could beat this West Indies side. The mindset changed the momentum. The crowd support was a massive factor, we never felt like we played away from home. It felt like playing in Bangladesh. Hopefully they will come out in their numbers and support us tomorrow. Hider and all the bowlers were brilliant, Fizz went for a few runs but picked crucial wickets. Great team effort, all in all.

Tamim Iqbal is the Player of the Match for his 44-ball 74. "In St Kitts, the shot I played to get out, I thought it was on. Today, I gave myself time early on and then cashed in. Shakib played an unbelievable innings, he took a lot of pressure off me. He was looking good right from the time he came in. His early boundaries got us up and running. I love the pitch here, my first time in Florida."

Carlos Brathwaite, the losing captain of the night: I thought the decision was right, we got a few wickets, put them under pressure. But we were casual in the field and that's where the game turned. I still have full confidence in bouncing back. The question going into the break was maybe we could have chased much lesser. Casual fielding cost us, we could have improved our attitude a bit. I don't know if I will be fine if I say this, but Ramdin's DRS call was questionable. He is our glue. These things happen, but. Somedays, you have bad days with the bat but we shouldn't have been chasing down those many. As long as the attitude is the same as the first game, we'll be confident of winning.

My colleague Peter Della Penna believes Tamim's 16th over onslaught when Bangladesh batted sparked the turning point in the game. Your thoughts?

Mohammad Isam disagrees with PDP. "I think it was Mustafizur's dismissal of Russell...if he was around for another 10 balls, game over for Bangladesh."

Shovik Faiyaz: "It had become a routine for BD to lose crunch matches, happy to see that they have got rid of that on this tour. "

11.30pm Great to see the Bangladesh players walk towards where their fans are and thank them for the support. Joy on their faces, and they've now taken this into a decider. Surely all of them will turn up tomorrow and support them in big numbers? Magnificent victory. At different times, this chase looked set for West Indies despite losing a clutch of wickets. That stand between Rovman Powell and Andre Fletcher hauled them back, in the end just not enough gas to get over the line. The spinners - Shakib and Nazmul - finished with 5 for 47 off eight overs between them. Absolute gold in the context of the match.

Nazmul Islam to Badree, 1 run, that's it, Bangladesh have leveled the series. This is a full toss which he can only punch to long-on. Bangladesh's first win after five consecutive T20 losses

Nazmul Islam to Paul, OUT, swings, misses and he's bowled. That's the end of that, how the mood turns. This was fired in full, he went for the glory hit, he had to, but couldn't connect. Nazmul does the snake dance

Nazmul Islam to Paul, no run, big swing but the ball drifts in to beat him and hit the body.

Nazmul Islam to Nurse, OUT, he has hit this really, really high into the night sky. The man at deep midwicket would have had his heart in his mouth because this was in the air for a long, long time. Ariful who dropped a catch earlier in the night was so calm and composed this time and took the ball with his palms facing the sky, Australian style. Surely this turns it in Bangladesh's favour?
