That's all from this enthralling contest, folks! USA thumped Bangladesh by 6 runs to clinch the series. Both sides will meet each other for one final time in the last game of the series on Saturday, May 25. 

For now, this is Deepak Prakash signing off on behalf of co-commentator Ninaad Dixit and scorer/analyst Raju Khariya. CHEERS!
USA's 6-run win against Bangladesh is their smallest margin of victory in terms of runs in T20Is, surpassing their 10-run win against the Cayman Islands.
Monank Patel (USA Captain): "The way the bowlers bowled in the powerplay and in the last 5 overs. They used the conditions well and got the wickets at the right time.

We are high on confidence and leading in to the World Cup it will definitely help us."
Najmul Hossain Shanto (Bangladesh Captain): "Its very disappointing from us. We lost wickets in the middle overs that is the main point we lost this match.

We didn't play well to be very honest. Its a very good opportunity. We think we can play some good cricket in the next match.

Its not about the skills. We should change our mindset."
Ali Khan (Player of the Match): "It was a low-scoring game, and the pitch got slower in the second innings. The bowlers did a great job, taking wickets and putting pressure on Bangladesh.

Netravalkar's 19th over was crucial and helped in the final over. I focused on believing in myself and aiming for wickets. That boundary put pressure on me, but I returned to my strengths. 

The tail-enders were expecting short balls, and I tried that, but it didn't work. I adjusted, came back strong, and got the wicket."

Time for the post-match presentation...
12:00 AM IST, 12:30 PM Local Time: USA create history! Yes, you read that right, USA thumped Bangladesh by 6 runs to clinch the 3-match T20I series, with one game still left in the series. This is the first-ever series win for USA against a Test-playing nation. 

Earlier, after being invited to bat first, USA managed to post 144/6 in 20 overs. Steven Taylor and Monank Patel provided a decent opening stand, scoring 44 runs for the first wicket. However, Rishad Hossain bagged a couple of wickets in two consecutive deliveries and put USA in a spot of bother. Taylor contributed 31 runs, while Andries Gous departed for a golden duck. Corey Anderson and Harmeet Singh failed to impress with the bat, departing for 11 and 0 runs, respectively. Monak held his wicket from one end but failed to bat till the end, falling 8 runs short of his fifty in the 19th over of the innings. Aaron Jones chipped in with 34 runs and helped the hosts post 144/6 in 20 overs. 

Rishad Hossain, Shoriful Islam, and Mustafizur Rahman shared a couple of wickets each for Bangladesh. 

In pursuit of 144 runs, Bangladesh got off to a shaky start, losing 
Soumya Sarkar for a golden duck in the opening over. Tanzid Hasan looked settled but failed to carry the momentum, departing for 19 runs off 15 balls. Najmul Hossain Shanto and Towhid Hridoy started building the partnership in the middle and the pair added 48 runs for the third wicket, before Shanto departed for 36 runs off 34 balls. 

Bangladesh struggled to keep the run rate in check in the middle phase of the innings and Hridoy fell prey to Anderson after scoring 25 runs. Following the wicket of Hridoy, Bangladesh started losing wickets at regular intervals. Shakib tried to drag the game in Bangladesh's favor but Ali Khan knocked over the veteran all-rounder for 30 runs and put the visitors in deep waters. 

The Bangla Tigers lost a flurry of wickets at the cue end of the innings and eventually, got bundled out for 138 runs in the final over of the match, falling 6 runs short of the target. 

Ali Khan shone with the ball for USA, claiming three crucial wickets. Saurabh Netravalkar and Shadley van Schalkwyk chipped in with a couple of wickets, while Jasdeep Singh and Corey Anderson contributed a solitary wicket to Bangladesh's downfall. 

Stick around for the post-match presentation..
19.3 A Khan to R Hossain
W BIG APPEAL AND YES ITS OUT!! UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CREATE HISTORY!! Length ball pitching outside the off stump. Rishad gets oversmart. Shuffles across in the off side to scoop, gets a faint nick on this one hitting straight in the keeper's gloves! Monank Patel keeps his nerve and takes the catch! The umpire raises the finger and Ali Khan sprints away to celebrate!
Man O man! A crucial blow from Rishad Hossain and Bangladesh need 7 runs off 4 balls. Falls just short of the deep mid-wicket fence. 
19.2 A Khan to R Hossain
4 Rishad swings hard and connects! Clears the cow corner! Short delivery pitching just outside off. Rishad hits it over his shoulder. Crowd on the fence signals 4. The TV umpire will confirm with the help of replays. Scratch that. Its a boundary four!
Good running between the wickets. The pair sneak a bye run. 11 needed off 5 balls. 
19.1 A Khan to M Rahman
1b Over the wicket. Full and just outside off. Shapes for a drive but misses through to the keeper. Steals a bye.
Bangladesh need 12 runs off 6 balls. Ali Khan will bowl the final over.
