England won by 181 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.1

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, starts very tidily, bang on a line, bang on a length, Imrul gets behind it and blocks

1.2

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, this is more untidy from everyone, floated up wider of off, Imrul aims a swipe and it goes one-bounce through to Prior who fumbles

1.3

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, pitched up around off stump, Imrul forward and defending stylishly

1.4

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, a touch of movement back into Imrul here from a good length, misses the attempted leg-side nurdle

1.5

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, Bresnan finds the channel outside off stump, Imrul trusts the lack of exaggerated movement and leaves alone

1.6

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, well, if it's up there, it's fair game by the looks of things, floated up outside off stump, Imrul flays at it, slicing over cover for a boundary

Bangladesh 8/0   TT Bresnan 1-0-4-0

3.1

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 1 leg bye, pitched up from Bresnan, looking for swing, he finds it but it clips the pads on route to the fine leg boundary

3.2

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, floated up again outside off, and driven loosely with no timing back down the wicket

3.3

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, a touch edgy here from the batsman, outside off stump defending

3.4

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, Bresnan digs this in and finds decent bounce, Junaid rides it well and drops it by his toes

3.5

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, nicely played this, outside off and rising, Junaid calmly plays it out to the covers

3.6

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, pitched up on this occasion, Junaid pinned to the crease after the barrage of short balls, and defends

Bangladesh 14/1   TT Bresnan 2-1-4-0

5.1

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, Bresnan has 'worthy' written all over him, just lacks a touch of venom, this is accurate nevertheless and Junaid defends off the back foot

5.2

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, having just said that, Bresnan finds some seam movement, remember that, and the ball whizzes past the edge

5.3

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, a touch too far outside off from a fuller ball, Junaid leans into a drive which just eludes a diving Carberry at point and goes for four

5.4

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, back of a length this time, good channel outside off, Junaid sways inside the line of it

5.5

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, nicely played this, compact and right behind a back-of-a-length delivery, blocked solidly

5.6

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, no run, much fuller, good change up of length, Junaid caught napping on his crease a bit, but defends well

Bangladesh 26/1   TT Bresnan 3-1-8-0

7.1

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, length ball, pitching an inch or two outside off and seaming away a touch - left alone. Tempting stuff for Tamim, but he's not interested in that one

7.2

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, just a bit shorter but the width is there and Tamim laces one through the covers off the back foot. Top shot, he got on top of the bounce nicely

7.3

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, putting the ball closer to the batsman, outside off stump once again and Tamim leaves after the boundary

7.4

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 1 wide, bouncer! He's really dug that one in, not even half way to the batsman and it's ballooned up over Tamim

7.4

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 1 leg bye, strays towards leg stump, ball thumps into the thigh pad

7.5

Bresnan to Aftab Ahmed, no run, tight lines, Aftab walks forward in hurried defence

7.6

Bresnan to Aftab Ahmed, no run, just outside off stump, left alone by Aftab but he would have had his heart in his mouth for a moment as that was pretty close to the stumps

Bangladesh 33/2   TT Bresnan 4-1-13-0

9.1

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, another short ball, just wide of off stump and delivered from over the wicket, giving Tamim the room he wants to crack the ball over backward point and away to the boundary

9.2

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, much better line and length this time, pushing the ball closer to the batsman and zoning in on off stump

9.3

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, Bresnan's just lost his radar a little here, tries another short-pitched delivery but it's on leg stump and pulled handsomely away through square leg

9.4

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, length ball on off stump, Tamim defends watchfully

9.5

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, a similar length ball, but pushed just a touch wider and Tamim leaves alone - not quite enough width on it for him to score off and rightfully wants nothing to do with it

9.6

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, identical ball and Tamim plays in identical fashion - left alone

Bangladesh 48/2   TT Bresnan 5-1-21-0

18.1

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, starts too straight, Mahmudullah tucks the ball away off the thigh pad to collect a couple

18.2

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, that's a snorter! Dangerous delivery in the channel outside off stump, nipped away off the seam and Mahmudullah's feet went nowhere. He was completely squared up and lucky not to get an edge on that

18.3

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, much better display of a defensive shot this time, the batsman leans forward to defend

18.4

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, pitched up and onto the front foot, defended out to point

18.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, short ball, bouncer really, but not very well directed at all and the batsman just sways away from the ball as it sailed over leg stump

18.6

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, fuller length and on off stump, Mahmudullah leans forward in watchful defence

Bangladesh 90/3   TT Bresnan 6-1-23-0

20.1

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, short ball but Mahmudullah ducks under it easily

20.2

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, short and ducks again

20.3

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 3 runs, top shot, deserved four for that. Driven on the up through point, looked really good doing it, but Carberry is really quick in the field and sprinted out to cut the ball off inches from the rope

20.4

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, tucked off the hip behind square on the leg side. Nicely done, Tamim is looking completely at ease out there, and Mahmudullah is giving him good support

20.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 1 run, ill-directed short ball, whip-pulled down to fine leg

20.6

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, length ball on off stump from around the wicket, Tamim drops the ball into space on the off side and asks for a run, but Mahmudullah rightfully turns it down

Bangladesh 103/3   TT Bresnan 7-1-28-0

22.1

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, short and on off stump from around the wicket, and Tamim guides the ball down off the face, wide of second slip and down to third man for four. Bresnan looks to the heavens, but that was deliberately played down there

22.2

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 2 runs, too straight and punched infront of midwicket off the back foot

22.3

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, dug in wide of off stump, Tamim's eyes lit up with the width on offer and he flashed a wild cut shot, but didn't get close to the ball. Beaten by the bounce

22.4

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, gets back and across to defend

22.5

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, short and wide again, and cut hard, but into the ground, out to the deep cover point

22.6

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, another short ball, really dug in, but Mahmudullah just lets his knees buckle to duck well underneath it without alarm

Bangladesh 110/3   TT Bresnan 8-1-35-0

24.1

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, round the wicket to the left-hander, who rocks back to defend a length ball on off stump

24.2

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, and it seems to be working, very well directed ball, speared in at off stump and defended

24.3

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, short-pitched on off stump, Tamim guides the ball to the left of Pietersen at point. A fumbled fielding attempt allows them to run a single

24.4

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, on a length on off stump, Mahmudullah pushes forward and across to punch the ball defensively into the covers

24.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, slightly shorter but similar line, the batsman tries to force the ball through the covers off the back foot but the ball takes the inside edge and trickles to leg instead

24.6

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 1 run, on the pads and clipped out to deep square leg

Bangladesh 117/3   TT Bresnan 9-1-37-0

26.1

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, angled down towards the legs from Bresnan, Mahmudullah helps it along its way down to fine leg for an easy single

26.2

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, oh dear, Bresnan really dragged this down, but the new-ball shine has long since disappeared from the Kookaburra, and Mahmudullah mistimes an attempted force as the ball dies in the wicket

26.3

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, better length, slightly fuller but enough width for Mahmudullah to try and force it away to cover

26.4

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, this time it's bang on, good line, good length and Mahmudullah defends calmly

26.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, FOUR, lovely shot, flashing cut through point from a short and wide delivery. I can tell you that Gnasher was less than impressed with the ball, I can't tell you his exact words

26.6

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, FOUR, another short ball, you wonder why, Mahmudullah doesn't, he just pulls it like a rocket between fine leg and deep square for another boundary

Bangladesh 134/3   TT Bresnan 10-1-47-0

39.1

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, no run, on off stump, defended into the off side by the nightwatchman

39.4

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, no run, gets into line and defended into the covers

39.6

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, on off stump, defended back to the bowler

41.2

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, defended from off stump into the leg side where midwicket does the fielding

41.3

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, no run, pushed towards mid on...the key for Tamim is that he has a solid defensive technique to go alongside his attack shots

41.4

Bresnan to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, gone! That's an absolute beauty from Bresnan, straightened from round the wicket, squared-up Tamim and clipped the off stump. It needed something good to shift him, and that would have done for plenty of batsmen.

Tamim Iqbal b Bresnan 86 (180m 124b 14x4 1x6) SR: 69.35

41.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, that's a really loose start from Rahim as he flashes at a wide ball outside off with an attempted cut

43.2

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this one doesn't carry as much as Rahim leaves again outside off

43.3

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, full and a touch of movement away as Rahim raises his bat out of the line

43.4

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, well bowled, he brings this one back into the right hander and it isn't that far from the off stump as Rahim lets it pass by

43.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this is good stuff from Bresnan, on off stump and Rahim has to play at one as he defends into the off side

43.6

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, dropped into the off side, Rahim wants a single but is sent back by Shahadat...another impressive over from Bresnan who has looked much more threatening this morning

45.1

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, on off stump, comes forward and defends very correctly with bat and pad together

45.2

47.1

47.3

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, 2 runs, just manages to evade Finn at mid on as he lobs an agricultural pull just over the tallest man on the field

47.4

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, no run, well, that's bizarre...the ball comes off Shahadat's shoulder and Prior drops the 'catch', but Rod Tucker gives him out before reversing the decision having noticed the ball wasn't taken...but it would have been an incorrect 'out' call anyway.

47.5

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, no run, beaten outside off

47.6

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, no run, misses a wild swing to leg and the ball scoots past leg stump

47.6

Bresnan to Shahadat Hossain, no run, squirted through the leg side and that's a seven-ball over...not Tucker's finest hour

49.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, fences at this outside off, flies in the air through the gap between second slip and gully...would have been swallowed by third slip
