Despite the attempts of Shimron Hetmyer (37), it was not to be enough as the Warriors fell to 108 all out.

After losing his wicket just nine runs short of a century to the bowling of Shakib Al Hasan, the responsibility of the innings fell on Khan, whose vital half-century helped his side to 195 for five by the end of the innings.
