View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Nazmul Hossain b Abdur Razzak 40 104 87 4 0 45.97
21.2 the frustration set in and it's cost Hafeez his wicket, he struck that hard but could not get the desired elevation, got to the pitch to that flighted ball and struck it straight into the hands of mid-on where Nazmul took a sharp catch 70/4
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Mahmudullah b Mashrafe Mortaza 9 22 8 2 0 112.50
4.2 72.6 mph, Jamshed goes! Early wicket for Bangladesh, was the slower one, short of a good length, made room and tried to clear the in-field on the off side but found cover where Mahmudullah took it comfortably 16/1
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Nazmul Hossain 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
5.2 77.2 mph, Younis Khan has been trapped lbw! Looked really close, that one angled in and nipped in after pitching, Younis moved across and closed the face and was struck in front of off , can't really tell on the first replay. We also need to check if there was an inside edge, Younis wasn't too happy. He has to go, however. Yes, there was an inside-edge, we see that on the second replay, a hint of deviation inwards. 19/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* run out (Nasir Hossain) 13 48 23 1 0 56.52
14.5 from Shahadat Hossain, run-out, another wicket, Nasir Hossain is an excellent fielder, that was defended in front of him at point, Misbah took off and then hesitated, Nasir ran in from point, picked it up and aimed accurately at the non-striker's end, Misbah has to go, he was well short 55/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahmudullah 30 80 45 0 1 66.66
34.5 caught-behind, Pakistan in further trouble, Umar Akmal is furious, that landed on leg stump and turned further down, Umar tried to work that behind square, replays didn't show a clear contact with the bat there, it may have flicked the trouser on the way to Mushfiqur, who took it well. Plenty of doubt there but the umpire had none, he raised his finger, Pakistan in deep trouble now. 133/6
View dismissal Hammad Azam c & b Shakib Al Hasan 30 49 37 3 1 81.08
33.3 A wicket at the wrong time for Pakistan, shaped up for the slog-sweep, tried to clear midwicket, that short had worked well for him, ended up getting a top-edge and Shakib ran back and judged it well 129/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Nasir Hossain b Shakib Al Hasan 32 32 22 4 1 145.45
41.3 Afridi goes! Holes out to a full toss, came down the track to smash that over midwicket but it turned out to be a miscue, got a top-edge and Nasir at long-off ran in and took a good catch diving forward, crucial blow 178/7

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 60 88 68 8 0 88.23
23.1 86.8 mph, Tamim goes! Oh dear, Bangladesh in a bit of trouble now! Tamim had the wood over Gul so far this innings but not anymore, short outside off and he went for the pull, mistimed it completely, tried to go over midwicket, ended up miscuing it towards extra cover, Younis has been brilliant in the field, keeps his eyes on that one and takes it low, inches from the ground, Tamim is shocked at what he's done, stands still for a while but he has to go back 81/3

16.4 52.2 mph, Younis Khan takes an excellent running catch, Nazim has been put out of his misery, tossed up, made room to loft that over extra cover, loft he did but didn't get the desired distance, Younis at long-off ran a fair distance to his left and kept his eyes on that one throughout, dived and took it superbly, Bangladesh are one down 68/1
View dismissal Jahurul Islam c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 0 3 5 0 0 0.00
17.5 53.9 mph, another one goes! Silence around the ground, was the doosra again, turned away and Jahrul didn't pick it once again, closed the face on one that spun away, got an outside edge and it's that man Younis again at slip, reaching out to his right and snapping that one 68/2
View dismissal Nasir Hossain c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 28 110 63 1 0 44.44
42.3 85.2 mph, Nasir goes! Stunned silence around the ground but Shakib's still out there. Banged in short, he had made up his mind to go after that one, went for the pull, didn't get hold of it and it landed safely into the palms of a calm Misbah at midwicket 170/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan b Aizaz Cheema 68 95 72 7 1 94.44
43.4 86.3 mph, Cheema strikes! Shakib has to go, massive, potentially decisive wicket for Pakistan. Goodish length on the leg stump, Shakib walked across to paddle it fine, missed and the stumps were pegged back 179/5
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim*† c Nasir Jamshed b Aizaz Cheema 10 15 8 1 0 125.00
45.1 86.3 mph, Mushfiqur holes out! Seemed to have struck it well, was a length ball on middle and he swung it high, Nasir Jamshed ran a few paces to his left from deep square leg and did a brilliant job keeping his eyes on it despite the distraction from the floodlights, took it just a few paces inside the ropes, superbly judged 190/6
Mahmudullah not out 17 44 16 1 0 106.25
View dismissal Mashrafe Mortaza c Nasir Jamshed b Saeed Ajmal 18 15 9 2 0 200.00
47.4 54.7 mph, another twist, Mashrafe was trying to be cheeky there, Ajmal went round the stumps and tried to paddle it over short fine, couldn't, Jamshed was placed perfectly there and took a nervous catch falling ahead, effective though 218/7
View dismissal Abdur Razzak b Aizaz Cheema 6 16 8 0 0 75.00
49.5 68.1 mph, Bowled'im! He had made up his mind to carve that over short fine leg, he was up in the circle, was the slower one, he walked well across but ended up playing it onto the stumps, eight down now, Mahmudullah will not be on strike 233/8
