View dismissal SE Marsh b Farhad Reza 30 45 36 4 0 83.33
8.1 he's bowled him! Reza strikes with his first ball of the series, what a start! Reza pitches the ball on a good length just around off stump and nips it a fraction back into the left-hander, Marsh pushes forward in defence with a large gap between bat and pad, Reza finds it and the ball hits off stump, Marsh has monopolised the strike and ridden his luck so far but it's run out now 41/1
View dismissal SR Watson run out (Mashrafe Mortaza/†Dhiman Ghosh) 27 113 44 2 0 61.36
23.5 Shakib Al Hasan to Clarke, Watson's gone now! Clarke pushed the ball slowly off the front foot towards mid-on and called for the single, Watson was hesitant, Clarke powered through for the run but Watson's response was late, Mortaza picked up and threw towards the batsman's end where Dhiman Ghosh broke the stumps with Watson miles short 84/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke* run out (Alok Kapali) 25 75 66 0 0 37.87
25.3 from Shakib Al Hasan, another mix-up and another run-out! Clarke pushes the ball off the front foot towards cover point, he begins to go for the single but hesitates, he sees Hussey coming and continues to run, Kapali runs in from point, picks the ball up cleanly and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end, no need for the third umpire, Clarke's struggle is over 87/3
MEK Hussey not out 57 126 72 2 1 79.16
View dismissal DJ Hussey run out (Mohammad Ashraful) 11 35 27 0 0 40.74
34.4 from Farhad Reza, that's the third run out! Fantastic fielding! David charges down the track and hits the short of a length ball hard towards mid-off with a flat bat, he sets off for the single immediately but the ball was travelling towards mid-off quickly, Ashraful sprints towards it, picks up, and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, umpire Saheba calls for the third umpire but David isn't waiting, he's walking off 111/4
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Alok Kapali b Abdur Razzak 16 45 31 1 0 51.61
43.1 caught! Haddin's hit it straight to cover! He backs away to make room to hit over the off side, the flighted delivery dips and turns away from the right-hander, Haddin ends up driving away from his body and chips an easy catch to Kapali 150/5

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Clark b Watson 63 126 69 5 1 91.30
23.1 that's the end of Tamim! He was running out of partners and so he decided to uppercut a short and wide ball outside off stump, he got a top edge that flew high in the air and towards third man, Clark ran in from the boundary and took a well-judged catch, and with that Bangladesh's fading challenge has come to an end ... 103/8
View dismissal Junaid Siddique c White b Clark 0 8 6 0 0 0.00
1.6 that's a nasty delivery and Siddique's been caught! Clark banged the ball in short and it rose sharply on the left-hander, Siddique was caught in an awkward position and he fended at the ball to stop it from hitting him, the ball hit the glove and lobbed up over the wicketkeeper, White dived to his right and took the catch behind Haddin 2/1
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful* c Clarke b Clark 3 14 9 0 0 33.33
5.1 Ashraful takes another chance but this time he's been caught! The ball was a little wide outside off stump and Ashraful drove hard at it, he tried to hit through cover but sliced it towards point where Clarke took a sharp catch above his head, that ball was travelling fast, Ashraful's loss is a massive blow to Bangladesh's chances 13/2
View dismissal Alok Kapali b Johnson 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
6.3 bowled him! The length wasn't short at all and the line was on middle and off, Kapali attempted to pull the ball but was in a hopeless position, the ball skidded past his bat and hit the top of off stump, he looked at the pitch on his way back but the length wasn't short enough to pull 22/3
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c MEK Hussey b Hopes 27 54 29 5 0 93.10
16.4 Shakib goes! an attempted pull balloons in the air and Michael Hussey at midwicket takes an easy catch 82/4
View dismissal Mahmudullah b Hopes 1 11 6 0 0 16.66
18.5 Mahmudullah goes. Bowled by an incutter. on a length, he tried to defend off the front foot, went through the gap between bat and pad. Might have been an inside edge as it crashes into middle stump 96/5
View dismissal Dhiman Ghosh lbw b Hopes 1 11 4 0 0 25.00
20.2 that's plumb, absolutely plumb, Hopes pitches the ball on a good length outside off stump and angles the ball into middle, Dhiman should have been playing forward and straight, instead he stays back in his crease and plays across the line, attempting to hit the ball towards midwicket, he misses and gets struck on the knee roll in front of middle 98/6
View dismissal Farhad Reza c DJ Hussey b Watson 0 7 6 0 0 0.00
21.4 and the fielder at short cover has taken the catch! Reza leans forward and drives a good length ball in the air towards short cover, David Hussey dives forward and takes a low catch inches off the ground, Reza hangs around for a bit perhaps wondering if the catch was clean but umpire Parker gives him out 99/7
View dismissal Abdur Razzak b DJ Hussey 14 36 36 0 1 38.88
29.5 the quicker one has done the trick! Hussey fires in the flat and fast one, and angles it into the left-hander, Razzak is beaten for pace and the ball skids past his defences and hits off stump, that's Hussey's first one-day international wicket 125/10
