Bangladesh 132/3   AJ McKay 5-0-35-0

42.2

McKay to Naeem Islam, no run, better line, shortish but coming into the batsman who ekes it out to cover against the angle

42.3

McKay to Naeem Islam, no run, another dot ball, similar to the previous delivery

42.4

McKay to Naeem Islam, no run, nice slower ball from Mckay, 110.3kph, down leg but the lack of pace means Naeem can only defend

42.5

McKay to Naeem Islam, no run, excellent fielding from Ryder at point prevents the single that Naeem is currently unable to get

42.6

McKay to Naeem Islam, no run, in the end an excellent over from McKay after an inauspicious start as Naeem can again only work the ball into the off side

Bangladesh 184/6   AJ McKay 7-0-38-0

46.5

McKay to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, digs out a well directed full ball from McKay

46.6

McKay to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, in the slot outside off stump, Shakib lofts it over the bowler's head to reach a well-deserved fifty, also brings up the 200 for his side
