Bangladesh v England

England won by 181 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, Tamim launches things in style! Short and wide and all too familiar from Broad and Tamim cuts with real flourish through point for four

0.2

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, well, this is splendid, Tamim gets back and aims a massive pull shot, straight to mid on

0.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, calmer this time, back of a length, Tamim back and defending

0.4

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, ah, this is what Test cricket used to be, outside off stump and left well alone

0.5

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, back of a length once more, and defended towards the short leg fielder

0.6

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, decent carry on this, good pace too, but outside off and Tamim shoulders arms

Bangladesh 4/0   SCJ Broad 1-0-4-0

2.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, he uses his look devilishly here, aiming a ball into the rib area that is worked round the corner for a single

2.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 4 leg byes, it is, Imrul is nailed on the head and the ball runs away for four off the helmet

2.3

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, another short ball, well bowled this as well, Imrul in a terrible position trying to fend this away from his face

2.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, OUT, well, it looked likely! Good planning from England and Broad, they have really targeted Imrul with the short ball. He attempted a very desperate looking pull shot, it looped up off the gloves and Prior ran around to his right to take the catch

Imrul Kayes c †Prior b Broad 4 (10m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

2.5

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, another short ball and it really flies through to Prior, serious carry here. How refreshing to see some energy on the ball. That said, it sails harmless past the new batsman

2.6

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, really good pace from Broad, if England are ruthless here they could really move this game on tonight, this is back of a length again, and Junaid sways inside the line

Bangladesh 13/1   SCJ Broad 2-0-5-1

4.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, another short ball, Tamim looks much more comfortable, imperious almost, as he swats it away down to square leg for a single

4.2

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, pitched up this time, beats Junaid's attempted flick to the leg side and crashes into the pads

4.3

Broad to Junaid Siddique, 3 runs, floated up, looking to catch Junaid on the crease, but played well, gently patted down the ground for three

4.4

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, outside off stump, rising sharply, Tamim watches it slightly suspiciously as it goes through to Prior

4.5

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, well, bounce or not, that is a rubbish ball, short and wide outside off, Tamim happy to crash it through the covers, up on one leg as he plays the shot

4.6

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, enough to force Broad to go round the wicket, but this is too far outside off stump to interest Tamim

Bangladesh 22/1   SCJ Broad 3-0-13-1

6.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Broad continues round the wicket and angles a short ball in from wide of the crease, Tamim stands tall and defends

6.2

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, good change of length, much fuller, Tamim playing back and defending with most of an inside edge, the ball goes towards midwicket

6.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, a fraction of width outside off and Tamim stands tall and tries to carve it away, times it well enough to burst through Pietersen's hands at point

6.4

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, back over the wicket to Junaid, decent delivery on off stump and defended

6.5

Broad to Junaid Siddique, OUT, oh dear, that is woefully soft. Another short ball, rising into Junaid's neck, he gets his bat half-heartedly in the way of it and it loops of a leading edge gently back to Broad who eagerly takes the return catch

Junaid Siddique c & b Broad 7 (17m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

6.6

Broad to Aftab Ahmed, no run, unsurprisingly, he slips in another short one, but this one is not very well directed and rockets wide of leg stump

Bangladesh 27/2   SCJ Broad 4-0-14-2

8.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, SIX, short ball directed into the ribs, but Tamim swivels onto the back foot and helps the ball way over the fine leg boundary. Good use of Broad's pace

8.2

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, back of a length, but Tamim gets behind it in defence

8.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, speared in towards middle and leg, Tamim hangs back in the crease to try and thump the ball through midwicket, but can't find the necessary placement or timing

8.4

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, middle and leg line again from round the wicket, Tamim just beaten for pace as the ball comes off the thigh pad and trickles to the off side

8.5

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, directed at off stump this time, on a length. Broad doing a good job of cramping Tamim for room, given him nothing to hit through the off side

8.6

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, dug in - brutish ball directed into the armpit of Tamim, but he negotiates it very well, getting across and getting on top of the bounce to work the ball behind square

Bangladesh 40/2   SCJ Broad 5-0-21-2

10.1

Broad to Aftab Ahmed, 1 run, on a length on off stump, Aftab just drops the ball into space between point and cover and they scamper through

10.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, wide of off and left alone

10.4

28.2

Broad to Mahmudullah, no run, another good ball, probing the off-stump channel, pushed into the off side

28.3

Broad to Mahmudullah, no run, slightly slower ball and it somewhat deceived Mahmudullah, who played a little early on his drive and inside-edged it towards midwicket

28.4

Broad to Mahmudullah, no run, good ball and an inch-perfect leave from Mahmudullah, shaving the off stump of its way through to Prior

28.5

Broad to Mahmudullah, 1 run, errs a little bit too far down leg, and Mahmudullah picks it off, turning it behind square for one

28.6

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, that is a little bit careless from Tamim, but entirely safe. He hung his bat outside off stump and guided the ball a touch casually down to the vacant third man

30.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Broad comes round the wicket to Tamim, angles a shortish ball that is guided to short third man

32.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, decent line outside off stump, Tamim decides it's not worth his trouble and leaves it alone

32.2

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, tighter line this time, but still not quite close enough to draw a shot from Tamim

32.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, same again, perhaps Broad is looking for some late reverse-swing, as it is Tamim happily lets it go past him

32.4

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 leg bye, massive appeal from England as Broad arrows a fuller delivery from wide of the crease in at Tamim, raps him on the pads but it's missing leg by a distance

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   SCJ Broad 9-1-29-2

34.1

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

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

40.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, driven down to mid off...Broad bowling quickly yesterday but is just loosening up at the moment

40.4

44.1

Broad to Shahadat Hossain, no run, banged in short and Shahadat goes underneath it

44.2

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, Broad floats his first ball up outside off, exploring swing I suspect, Mushfiqur drives stylishly through extra cover for four

60.3

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, tighter line around off stump, Mushfiqur leaves alone

60.4

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this is a fraction wider of off stump, too wide to interest Mushfiqur who shoulders arms

80.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, 1 leg bye, on leg stump, worked away backward of square on the leg side and it has come off the pad

80.3

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short ball, Rahim plays it well by dropping his hands and swaying backwards

Bangladesh 279/7   SCJ Broad 20-4-66-2

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, another shortish ball, again starting a little wide of off and Mushfiqur makes a cursory sway inside the line

86.3

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

86.6

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, more secure here for Mushfiqur, rocking forward and defending solidly
