Bangladesh v England

England won by 181 runs

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

1.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, and he gets a nice sighter outside off and can leave well alone

1.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, hint of swing back into the left hander as Carberry plays slightly around his front pad and drives to mid-on

1.3

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, 2 runs, that will be a great feeling, his first Test runs, as he works the ball off his hip down to fine leg and fumble allows him back for a second.

1.4

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, full and outside off stump, quite a slingy action and not much bounce from Rubel

1.5

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, full at the stumps, that's not a bad way to attack Carberry, and it's met with a full face as it's punched into the leg side

1.6

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, a easy leave to end the over...early signs are that it's going to be hard toil for the quicks. Not sure why Shakib bowled first to be honest.

England 4/0   Rubel Hossain 1-0-2-0

3.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, that's a cracking shot from Carberry to register the first boundary of the Test as he stands tall and drives square past point...that's a strong area for Carberry

3.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, and he follows that with a flowing cover drive as Rubel tries to compensate by pitching up...Carberry took a stride forward and drove sweetly through the line

3.3

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, fired wide of off stump and he resists having a dart at another drive

3.4

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, good reply from Rubel, banged in and it lifts past Carberry's chest as he sways out of the line...interesting stuff all of a sudden

3.5

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, fuller again this time, nicely judged and left alone

3.6

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, that's a ripper...driven dismissively through mid off with a perfect straight bat. He won that over without a doubt and it will have helped settle any early nerves

England 16/0   Rubel Hossain 2-0-14-0

5.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, good line of middle and off, Carberry defends square on the off side

5.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, he picks up another boundary, this time off a thick outside edge as it runs between second slip and gully down to the vacant third man

5.3

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, on off stump, no width offered which is important, and it's defended down the pitch

5.4

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, 1 run, opens the face a touch and finds space on the off side...this has been a good over so far, a consistent line around off stump

5.5

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, just as a I say it's a good line, he sprays one wide outside off which is left alone

5.6

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, this one doesn't bounce much and Cook squirts it into the off side with a fairly ungainly poke

England 21/0   Rubel Hossain 3-0-19-0

12.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, very full, very wide and Carberry chases one for the first time as he drives without conviction and plays over the top of the ball

12.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, 1 run, driven uppishly through the covers and there's already a sweeper out for the paceman as well

12.3

Rubel Hossain to Cook, (no ball) 2 runs, flicked off the hip through the leg side, nicely timed but it's pulled in short of the rope

12.3

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, full and outside off stump, Cook decides to leave alone rather than drive...he said in South Africa that he was putting the cover drive away

12.4

Rubel Hossain to Cook, FOUR, but he's still playing the pull and that was a dismissive shot through midwicket as Rubel dropped short and was punished...easy pickings

12.5

Rubel Hossain to Cook, FOUR, short outside off, Cook plays a cut-turned-drive and it goes through mid off who can't dive his time properly and goes over the top of the ball

12.6

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, cut into the covers...that was a seven-ball over. Oops.

England 54/0   Rubel Hossain 4-0-32-0

37.1

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, outside off and left alone

37.2

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, hint of movement towards middle, Trott pushes towards mid on and sprints off for a sharp single

37.3

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, whipped from leg stump down to fine leg

37.4

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, driven off the back foot square on the off side

37.5

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, worked from middle and off out to midwicket

37.6

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, outside leg stump again and it's another comfortable single out to deep square-leg

England 145/1   Rubel Hossain 5-0-36-0

39.1

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, outside off and Trott watches it sail through

39.2

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, this time Trott plays at some extra width and flat-bats this into the covers

39.3

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, another well-struck drive from Cook but he picks out cover

39.4

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, outside leg stump which is a freebie for Cook as he clips it down to fine leg

39.5

Rubel Hossain to Trott, OUT, gone! Breakthrough for Bangladesh and it's come from a bouncer as Trott goes for a pull and the ball loops behind for Rahim to take a simple catch after skipping back from his position. The umpire waited before giving him out and Trott doesn't look pleased with the decision

IJL Trott c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Rubel Hossain 39 (91m 77b 3x4 0x6) SR: 50.64

39.6

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, gets a sighter outside off first ball and lets it go through

England 149/2   Rubel Hossain 6-0-38-1

41.1

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, outside off and he isn't interested in that one

41.2

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, just trying a bit too hard and as a consequence is spraying the ball outside off stump

41.3

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, homing in on middle, driven sweetly but straight to mid on

41.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, short and a touch wide outside off, doesn't really get up and Pietersen sways well out the way of it

41.5

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, FOUR, short again, massive grunt from the bowler as he delivers, but it's a wasted delivery, sat up asking to be thwacked, Pietersen obliged, pulling it well in front of square through the leg side for four

41.6

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, full toss, really should have been put away as well, but Pietersen could only push it firmly to mid on

England 159/2   Rubel Hossain 7-0-42-1

43.1

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, short and quite lively, given the slowness of the track, Cook pulls firmly straight to the fine leg fielder

43.2

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, handy pace from Rubel here, really bending his back, Pietersen defends outside off stump

43.3

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, decent ball, a fraction wide of off stump, Pietersen happy to let it go by. You would think both left-arm spinners would be on, strange thinking to go with pace

43.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 run, tidy cricket this, good ball on off stump, well defended into the covers for a sharp single

43.5

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, slung in full and straight, Cook meets it with a pendulum-straight bat and the ball goes out to mid on

43.6

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, touch short and some width, Cook tries to flay it through the off side, but perhaps goes too hard at it, loses his shape and timing and the ball trickles to cover

England 166/2   Rubel Hossain 8-0-44-1

59.1

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 run, starts with a length ball, slightly wide of off stump, which Pietersen slams into the ground . Cover collects cleanly but they run a single

59.2

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, off stump line, and Cook calmly guides the ball away behind point. Runs already flowing

59.3

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, better ball. There was some pace on it, and the ball lifted on Pietersen off a length to be played uppishly but ultimately safely to gully

59.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 run, Big shout! This one nips in off the seam to thud into Pietersen's front pad as he shapes to flick the ball through midwicket, but that's heading way down leg

59.5

Rubel Hossain to Cook, FOUR, very full - almost yorker length - but pushed wide of the crease and Cook just squeezes it out between slip and gully and there's no third man so the ball rolls away for four

59.6

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 no ball, good length, and well directed, but he's overstepped while putting in the extra effort

59.6

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, short on the hips, Cook swivels on his back leg and pulls well, but straight to the fielder at deep square leg

61.2

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, (no ball) FOUR, leg stump half volley is crunched to the boundary. There were two fielders out on the leg side but that was powerfully hit. And he's overstepped

61.2

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, off stump half volley now, but bunted straight to mid off

61.3

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, much better line and length on the ball, but there's not even a jot of movement on it and Pietersen has no trouble rocking back in defence

61.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, driven off the back foot with a high left elbow, but straight to cover

61.5

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, same ball, same shot, and if anything this one was hit even harder. A metre or two either side of the fielder and that would have been four, but he's picked him out again

61.6

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 run, fuller and Pietersen nails a drive, but a diving mid off cuts it off as they scamper a single

England 260/2   Rubel Hossain 10-0-59-1

63.1

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, some width on the ball and Cook attempts to force it through the off side, but gets an under edge which bubbles up just past a diving slip. Not a chance, but somewhat beaten by the lack of bounce on that one

63.2

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, on a length and straight, Pietersen leans across and taps the ball to midwicket

63.3

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, good ball, on a length and just outside off, inviting a drive but the footwork wasn't great. Nothing on it though, so no alarms as Pietersen pushes into the off side

63.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, FOUR, top shot! Absolutely drilled straight back past the bowler, all along the ground. Superb example of a straightish on drive

63.5

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, he pulls the length back slightly, and Pietersen moves back and across to defend

63.6

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 run, and he's almost done it again! Another straight drive hammered back past the bowler, but this one is too straight and smashes into the stumps at the non-striker's end

England 266/2   Rubel Hossain 11-0-65-1

65.1

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, full and straight, pushed firmly to mid on

65.3

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, full and straight and driven very hard down the ground, but closes the face slightly to send the ball to mid on

65.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 no ball, sharp bouncer! Good ball, Pietersen was rushed slightly as he ducked under it, but he's over stepped once again

65.4

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, and he follows up with another bouncer, but this one is not as sharp or unexpected as the first, and Pietersen sways away easily to evade the ball

65.5

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, no run, fuller and slightly wide, Pietersen aims an expansive drive through the covers, but picks out the fielder

65.6

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, (no ball) FOUR, slower ball, short and wide of off stump and Pietersen slashes at it. The ball came off the outside half of the bat and was hit uppishly, but in the gap and away to the boundary. And another no-ball

65.6

Rubel Hossain to Pietersen, 1 run, on his legs and Pietersen walks across to off to work the ball to fine leg

England 274/2   Rubel Hossain 12-0-72-1

86.1

Rubel Hossain to Cook, 1 run, slightly too straight first ball, and you can't bowl there to Cook. The left-hander whips through midwicket but there's a fielder on the boundary there

86.2

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, no run, decent pace, but pushed full and too wide, Collingwood just watches the ball go by

86.3

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, no run, better ball, closer to off stump and with a bit of wobble on it. Collingwood presses half forward to defend

86.4

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, FOUR, scythed away behind point for another boundary. That ball got what it deserved - short and wide and absolutely hammered away

86.5

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, no run, he follows it up with a bouncer, but it's dug in much too short and the ball loops way over Collingwood's head. He barely had to duck under that one

86.6

94.2

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, FOUR, goes for an effort ball but drifts onto leg stump and it's easily clipped away through midwicket for the first boundary of the day...meat and drink for Colly

94.3

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, 1 run, short outside off, cut away hard out to the deep cover sweeper

94.4

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, outside off and Cook is happy to let it go through...he hasn't quite found his groove yet, overnight batsmen with a hundred often find it harder the next day

England 388/3   Rubel Hossain 17-0-90-1

98.1

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, ooh, big appeal and it looks close first up as Cook is caught half forward, and replays show it was very close, taking the outside part of off stump but Rod Tucker said not out

98.2

Rubel Hossain to Cook, no run, driven firmly to mid off
