  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

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

Bangladesh 13/1   Tamim Iqbal 5* (7b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1.4-0-5-1

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

Bangladesh 27/2   Tamim Iqbal 11* (15b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 3.5-0-14-2

Swann to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, what's happened here? Aftab goes for a cute little paddle sweep, the ball appeared to come off the glove, clip the thigh pad and loop up to Bell at short leg. It will be interesting to watch the replay of that one, as Aftab really wasn't happy with the decision and gave the umpire a long look when he was given out. Replays indicate the ball did brush the glove

Aftab Ahmed c Bell b Swann 1 (20m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Bangladesh 51/3   Tamim Iqbal 32* (38b 5x4 1x6)   GP Swann 0.4-0-1-1

Swann to Mahmudullah, OUT, oh dear, sad end to Mahmudullah. Swann strikes! An attempted sweep comes off the gloves and loops Collingwood at first slip. Big breakthrough really, and a shame after these two put on such a good stand

Mahmudullah c Collingwood b Swann 51 (80m 64b 7x4 1x6) SR: 79.68

Bangladesh 145/4   Tamim Iqbal 75* (83b 12x4 1x6)   GP Swann 9.5-1-39-2

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   Tamim Iqbal 77* (108b 12x4 1x6)   GP Swann 13.2-4-40-3

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

Bangladesh 159/6   Shahadat Hossain 0* (11b)   TT Bresnan 11.4-2-47-1

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, OUT, gone! Finn gets his first Test wicket as Shahadat prods outside off stump once again and this time gets a thick edge straight to second slip and it's a simple catch for Paul Collingwood. That will be a proud moment for Finn and will settle any lingering nerves.

Shahadat Hossain c Collingwood b Finn 14 (60m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Bangladesh 183/7   Mushfiqur Rahim 8* (30b 2x4)   ST Finn 6.3-2-32-1

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, OUT, brilliant fielding from Carberry! Huge breakthrough and just what England needed. It was guided wide of point where Carberry ran and chased the ball in a flash, the throw was back and Naeem had turned blind, he was left stranded looking for a second run which could have been there if it weren't for Carberry's excellent work

Naeem Islam run out 38 (153m 116b 6x4 0x6) SR: 32.75

Bangladesh 296/8   Mushfiqur Rahim 79* (151b 15x4)   TT Bresnan 25-10-72-1

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Two in two and that is a sensational catch! Absolute blinder from Tredwell at short midwicket, diving one-handed to his right to pluck Mushfiqur's firmly-struck slog-sweep shot out of the air. Two bits of brilliant fielding have completely transformed England's mood

Mushfiqur Rahim c sub (JC Tredwell) b Swann 79 (196m 152b 15x4 0x6) SR: 51.97

Bangladesh 296/9   Abdur Razzak 0* (0b)   GP Swann 29.1-8-90-4

Swann to Rubel Hossain, OUT, gone again and Swann has five! Well Bangladesh have folded in an instant. Swann's slider and Rubel played down the wrong line. Lead of 303.

Rubel Hossain b Swann 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 296/10   Abdur Razzak 0* (0b)   GP Swann 29.3-8-90-5
