86.5

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, pitched up, swinging in late and a massive appeal from England. Runs given so the umpire must have though Mushfiqur got a nick on it, and yes, replays show he's absolutely right. An attempted leg-side flick came off the outside edge and went for four

89.2

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fuller and better ball, swinging away but from a line wide enough to draw nothing but a leave from Mushfiqur

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, probing stuff from Bresnan here, honing in on off stump, Mushfiqur is back and defending resolutely

89.6

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, OUT, brilliant fielding from Carberry! Huge breakthrough and just what England needed. It was guided wide of point where Carberry ran and chased the ball in a flash, the throw was back and Naeem had turned blind, he was left stranded looking for a second run which could have been there if it weren't for Carberry's excellent work

Naeem Islam run out 38 (153m 116b 6x4 0x6) SR: 32.75

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Two in two and that is a sensational catch! Absolute blinder from Tredwell at short midwicket, diving one-handed to his right to pluck Mushfiqur's firmly-struck slog-sweep shot out of the air. Two bits of brilliant fielding have completely transformed England's mood

Mushfiqur Rahim c sub (JC Tredwell) b Swann 79 (196m 152b 15x4 0x6) SR: 51.97

Bangladesh 296/9   Mushfiqur Rahim 79 (152b 15x4)
