England won by 181 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

0.1

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, starts with a low full toss outside off which is stubbed into the covers off a toe end

0.2

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, hits a good length this time outside off, Cook shoulders arms as it sails gently through to the keeper. All eyes on whether this pitch will offer anything early on

0.3

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, 2 runs, outside leg stump, tucked neatly backward of square and they come back for a second although there was a moment of uncertainty between the new batting pair

0.4

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, pushed across outside off, left along again and it comes slowly off the surface

0.5

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, keeps it in a channel outside off but it's a fraction too wide...he has to make Cook play with the new ball. It carries at shin height to Rahim

0.6

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, that's a decent ball to finish with, slightly tighter to Cook who has a moment of indecision whether to play or leave before withdrawing the bat

England 2/0   Shahadat Hossain 1-0-2-0

2.1

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, this one barely creeps off the surface as it's left alone outside off

2.2

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, good line on off stump, Cook defends solidly back down the pitch...England's batsmen should be looking forward to cashing in

2.3

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, stands tall in the crease and plays into the off side

2.4

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, searching for a full length outside off, Cook takes a stride towards the ball then lets it go harmlessly through

2.5

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, huge appeal! Bangladesh go up for a catch down the leg side but umpire Rod Tucker says not out much to the bemusement of the home side...replays suggest it came off thigh pad

2.6

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, gee, this one scoots low outside off stump and goes on the second bounce to the keeper...not a great sign in the third over

England 4/0   Shahadat Hossain 2-1-2-0

4.1

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, outside off and it goes comfortably through to the keeper

4.2

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, same again from bowler and batsman as another one goes through to the keeper

4.3

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, closer to off stump and Cook has to play this time, defending into the covers

4.4

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, comes half foward and drives off a thick inside part of the bat back to the bowler

4.5

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, a lot of effort going in for not much reward from this pitch as Cook defends on the front foot

4.6

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, too wide to interest Cook at all...the shine isn't going to last long. Not long until spin I reckon

England 16/0   Shahadat Hossain 3-2-2-0

6.1

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, too wide at Cook who doesn't even consider play a shot

6.2

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, nearly a breakthrough as this finds the edge of Carberry's bat as he jumps into a defensive shot, but the lack of pace in the pitch means the edge falls short of second slip

6.3

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, excellent follow-up from Shahadat, Carberry almost in two minds whether to play or leave as it shapes back a fraction with a touch of swing

6.4

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, this one dies on the surface and almost rolls through the keeper...good luck batting last on here

6.5

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, more clear effort from the bowler, complete with sound effects, and another leave from Carberry

6.6

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, on middle and off, defended with the head right over the ball and he holds his pose for a few seconds

England 25/0   Shahadat Hossain 4-2-6-0

8.1

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, hurls himself through the crease again but he can't make the batsman play

8.2

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, 1 run, full on off stump, Cook leans into a drive which goes to the right of mid off who makes a good diving save to keep them to a single

8.3

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, Shahadat huffs and puffs but can't blow Carberry away as this is outside off stump

8.4

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, flung well wide of off stump, nothing doing from the batsman who leaves alone

8.5

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, on leg stump, but Carberry misses out as he clips it straight to the man forward of square

8.6

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, wide outside off stump, left alone by Carberry who has dominated the scoring so far

England 27/0   Shahadat Hossain 5-2-7-0

10.1

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, 80mph, outside off stump and again the batsman doesn't have to play

10.2

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, and again, far too wide of the off stump and in the first session of a Test match this is a criminal waste of the new ball

10.3

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, flamboyant pull from Carberry as he whips this off his hip with Caribbean flair...it wasn't that short, but he picked up the length very quickly

10.4

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, drags his line and length back to off stump, defended into the off side

10.5

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, outside off, comes in with the angle but it has started too wide and doesn't make him play

10.6

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, goes on the second bounce through to the keeper to end Shahadat's sixth over and that might be his spell done and dusted for now

England 37/0   Shahadat Hossain 6-2-11-0

30.1

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, full on middle stump, clipped to short midwicket

30.2

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, on off stump, Trott goes across his crease and defends back to the bowler

30.3

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, 1 wide, that didn't come out right, sprayed way wide of the off stump and causes Rahim no ends of problem behind the stumps

30.3

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, full on middle and off, punched back down the pitch and Shahadat gets a hand on it in his follow through

30.4

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, good stride towards the ball and defends into the covers

30.5

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, stays on the back foot and defends straight back down the pitch...good line from Shahadat

30.6

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, FOUR, induces a drive this time, fuller outside off and Trott skews it off a thick outside edge along the ground through backward point

England 109/1   Shahadat Hossain 7-2-16-0

32.1

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, 2 runs, flicked off middle stump through square leg, there's time to come back for a second before long leg collects on the boundary

32.2

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, back of a length, defended towards mid on

34.1

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, 2 runs, takes a stride across the stumps and plays across his front pad to work the ball away through square leg...that was a pretty straight delivery

34.2

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, this time a defensive push is played on the move...perhaps a sign Trott is growing in confidence

34.3

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, touch more bounce this time as Trott tucks this into the leg side and picks out midwicket

34.4

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, comes forward into a drive which goes to mid off...Bangladesh have managed to dry up the boundaries

34.5

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, (no ball) FOUR, all that effort from Shahadat brings a no-ball and it's also a half volley which Trott drives easily through the covers, so a productive delivery for England just as I Bangladesh had dried up the boundaries

34.5

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, no run, drags his foot and his length back, Trott defends to Shahadat who then shapes to shy like the angry fast bowler he is

34.6

Shahadat Hossain to Trott, 1 run, searching for a yorker but Trott is able to work a single wide of mid on and once again steals the strike

36.1

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, on off stump, defended down to mid off

36.2

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, no run, short on off stump but it doesn't get up as Cook expected and he can't time his jab into the covers...it's a patience game for the batsmen

36.3

Shahadat Hossain to Cook, FOUR, superb stroke, dropped short and Cook brings out his favourite pull which rockets over the infield and away to the boundary...nobody even blinked as that ball whistled away

36.4

England 141/1   Shahadat Hossain 10-2-35-0

82.1

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, 1 wide, and he starts with a horrible wide! That's slipped out of the hand and barely on the wicket, way, way wide of off stump

82.1

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, no run, much better line, just outside off stump and just a hint of movement away from the right-hander. Not too much pace on it though, and Collingwood watches the ball go by easily

82.2

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, 1 run, short and just a bit too straight, allowing Collingwood to move across and 'nurdle' the ball into the leg side

82.3

England 339/3   Shahadat Hossain 11-2-38-0

84.1

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, (no ball) 2 runs, digs this one in, but not much pace or bounce in the wicket and Collingwood has no problems rocking back to pull the ball through midwicket for two. And he's overstepped in making the effort

84.1

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, FOUR, short and wide this time, Collingwood waits in the crease and slashes the rank long hop in front of cover point. The fielder was on the boundary, but that was hit really hard and whizzed past his outstretched hands

84.2

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, 1 run, back of a length and nurdled to leg for one

84.3

84.6

122.4

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, no run, goes for a rather ungainly pull, trying to find the gaps on the leg side, but it wasn't short enough and didn't bounce as expected either...ends up playing over the top of the ball

122.5

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, no run, full outside off, Collingwood onto the front foot to drive and finds backward point

122.6

England 488/4   Shahadat Hossain 13-2-51-0

124.1

Shahadat Hossain to Bell, 1 run, now Bell uses his feet to the paceman, drops the ball towards backward point and there's brief hesitation from Bell before the run is complete...Collingwood always wanted it

124.2

128.3

Shahadat Hossain to Collingwood, 1 run, that's his hundred, No. 10, opens the face to third man and salutes the (small) crowd and his team-mates...he's made harder ones but, as the cliche goes, they all count etc etc

128.4

Shahadat Hossain to Bell, FOUR, that's dreamy from Bell, just leans into a languid cover drive and that takes Bell to his fifty...it's been an effortless innings
