Edwards to Nazimuddin,
gone, caught at short-leg, out! It was a short ball yet again, cramping the batsman for room and Nazimuddin can only fend it away to short-leg! Yes, short-leg, they have one in place for such kind of bowling and he is immediately in action. The ball did not bounce as much as it could have from that length, but what counts for the visitors is that it got them a wicket!
Nazimuddin c Powell b Edwards 4 (11m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
Sammy to Shahriar Nafees,
gone! caught behind, it is the batsman who blinks!. It was another one outside the off stump, but he made it to angle slightly in before it moves away, Nafees could have left it alone but he went for a forward defensive stroke, gets a feather and is caught behind!
Shahriar Nafees c †Ramdin b Sammy 26 (81m 49b 4x4 0x6) SR: 53.06
Sammy to Tamim Iqbal,
bowled him! Whoa! That actually comes into the batsman from outside the off! The bowler had made Tamim leave all those deliveries and suddenly brought this one into the batsman from one that was slightly shorter. The angle ensured that it would jag back into the batsman and the lack of bounce allowed the ball to hit the stumps, of course aided by the batsman's decision to leave it alone! Intelligent stuff!
Tamim Iqbal b Sammy 32 (109m 70b 4x4 0x6) SR: 45.71
Edwards to Naeem Islam,
gone, bowled! This is the second poor one of the session, off only the second over of the session. Pitched up and he went for the drive, gets an inside edge and chips the bails. Shakib had earlier survived his attempt at a drive, Naeem does not! The shot may have been on but given how early it was in the session and in his own innings, there was a scope to leave the ball.
Naeem Islam b Edwards 16 (31m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72
Edwards to Shakib Al Hasan,
edged and gone! It seems to have taken the outside edge of the bat, the keeper collects it and immediately throws up the ball in celebration. The umpire also does not have any trouble in giving that out and while Shakib is disappointed, it does not seem to stem from the decision. It was a length ball, sucked the batsman into playing at it and it results in a very thin nick through to the keeper.
Shakib Al Hasan c †Ramdin b Edwards 17 (26m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 85.00
Permaul to Nasir Hossain,
That is the end of that, and on expected lines. Play well, spank everyone out of the attack, get to an attractive half-century and then throw it away. Nasir Hossain tries to go down the track and hit the bowler over mid-on, he fails to execute it well and is easily caught at mid-on
Nasir Hossain c Edwards b Permaul 52 (88m 68b 8x4 1x6) SR: 76.47
Edwards to Mushfiqur Rahim,
edged and excellently caught! a very good ball, Rahim had to play at it and manages only to take an edge of the bat, it was travelling to the right of Ramdin and would have beaten the first slip. The Trinidad and Tobago man dived in a flash and plucks it rather well, to send back the captain
Mushfiqur Rahim c †Ramdin b Edwards 38 (119m 81b 5x4 0x6) SR: 46.91
Edwards to Sohag Gazi,
gone, lbw to an in-swinger! That was what he wanted to do, pitch it up and get it to swing enough to beat the inside edge of the bat. He does exactly that here and the batsman is caught plumb in front!
Sohag Gazi lbw b Edwards 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Sammy to Mahmudullah,
gone, caught and bowled by the captain! That is almost against the run of play, fuller from Sammy and drilled back to the bowler. It was going to Sammy's right, above his head and he puts his hand out, does not take it cleanly, but it lobs up and back to the bowler who does a good job in taking the rebound
Mahmudullah c & b Sammy 76 (175m 97b 9x4 0x6) SR: 78.35
Edwards to Abul Hasan,
gone, out, fended off to the slips! It was a short one and the batsman wanted to sway out of the way, could not do so in time and it flies off his gloves to the slips where Sammy takes a simple catch. End of a superb knock from the debutant, while Edwards ends with six wickets too.
Abul Hasan c Sammy b Edwards 113 (163m 123b 14x4 3x6) SR: 91.86
