2.1

Lee to Imrul Kayes, no run, huge appeal that carried on for ages! And with good reason. Lee banged in the bouncer and it is supremely directed. Kayes fended at it at first but then tried to pull his bat out of the way. He was late in doing so and he definitely gloved it to Haddin. The umpire didn't see it.

10.6

Johnson to Imrul Kayes, OUT, and his misery is over and this sets Bangladesh back. It was a short ball and Kayes attempted the first pull of the day. He tried to hit it from way way outside off though. It didn't come off and the top-edge flew high in the air towards the leg side where Watson took a simple catch. Bangladesh needed Kayes to kick on and anchor the innings after his excruciatingly slow start. He's gone now, after playing a rash shot. A new batsman will have to come in and get set all over again.
