Nasir Hossain snatched his first wicket of the match when he saw the back of Moeen Ali in the 27th over. Moeen attempted to pull a shortish ball, got an edge that traveled to mid-on where Shakib took a splendid catch behind him.
The game was over for England. Bangladesh won the second match by 34 runs to level the three-match ODI series at 1-1.
