Needing just under eight an over in the chase, Dynamites got off to a worst possible start losing the first four wickets including Evin Lewis (4) and Shahid Afridi (1) for just 24 runs.

Shakib Al Hasan (20) looked good during his 17 ball knock but with him also departing, the home side were reeling at 41 for five. This is when Pollard (55) decided to counterattack and smashed four sixes in the 11th over indicating the things to follow.

The all-rounder departed after smashing three fours and six sixes when his side needed 43 from 32 balls. The home team crossed the line with one ball to spare as Jahirul Islam hit a boundary on the penultimate ball after Brathwaite gave away only two runs in the first four balls in the final over.
