Bangladesh 145/4   Shakib Al Hasan 0* (1b)

30.4

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Broad is excited by the presence of a new batsman, so explores the middle of the pitch with a bouncer, Shakib ducks under easily enough

30.5

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, this one is arrowed too far down leg side, Shakib misses an attempted fiddle, Prior collects

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, short again, Shakib stands tall and drops the ball into the leg side

Bangladesh 146/4   Shakib Al Hasan 0* (4b)

Bangladesh 147/4   Shakib Al Hasan 0* (7b)

32.5

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, similar length but around off stump this time, drives towards mid off

32.6

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, nice bit of cricket, full and straight, drives back at Broad who fields in his follow-through, twirls and hurls the ball back to Prior

Bangladesh 148/4   Shakib Al Hasan 0* (9b)

34.1

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, good stuff from Broad, angling it and pinning Shakib back, he defends well enough

34.2

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, oh dear not a great a shot from Shakib there, swishing outside off stump at a ball that cramped him for room

34.3

Broad to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, Shakib off the mark now, working this fuller ball with the angle towards mid off to run an easy single

35.4

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, flighted up, and Shakib is beaten somewhat, but the ball bobbles safely into space on the off side

35.5

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, playing out the day here is Shakib, gets right over the ball to defend

35.6

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, and once again, utterly solid in defence. The captain knows all he has to do is survive to fight tomorrow, and he seems very determined to do so

Bangladesh 149/4   Shakib Al Hasan 1* (18b)

37.1

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, that's kept very low! Scuttled through but Shakib watched it all the way, digging the bat down to keep it out

37.2

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, Shakib what have you done?! Flighted up, the ball dipped and turned and Shakib stepped out to play a completely unnecessary swipe, was comprehensively beaten and bowled! It was very similar to his dismissal in the one-dayer, and Swann has snapped him up once again. Big, big blow for Bangladesh. Tamim is still there, but how much support can he expect from the lower middle order and tail? Bangladesh sink further into the mire...

Shakib Al Hasan b Swann 1 (28m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 5.00

Bangladesh 149/5   Shakib Al Hasan 1 (20b)
