Bangladesh 301/6   Naeem Islam 16* (45b 2x4)

81.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, and he, too, finds a hint of away movement straight away. It is wide enough that Naeem does not even consider a stroke, however

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, outside off stump and left alone

83.6

Broad to Naeem Islam, FOUR, cracking cover drive! Over-pitched by Broad, and the ball was met with a full flow of the bat by Naeem. Timed to perfection, the ball making a solid, healthy crack as it is met by the bat

Bangladesh 309/7   Naeem Islam 24* (57b 4x4)

85.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, Naeem just waits deep in the crease and punches the ball through the gap on the off side. Well played, punchy drive off the back foot, and well stopped on the boundary too

85.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, Broad goes fuller this time, and Naeem drives but straight to mid off

85.3

88.3

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, short and wide of off stump, and Naeem plays a deft late cut wide of third man to pick up two

Bangladesh 339/8   Naeem Islam 37* (100b 4x4)

96.1

99.3

100.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, full, and Naeem gets the left leg forward and across to exhibit a solid forward defensive

100.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, streaky edge! Looked as though he opened the face on that but the ball squirted off the edge, falling short of any catchers however

100.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, full and driven hard into the covers

100.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, straying onto the legs, and Naeem shuffles across to try and get it away fine, but can't get the connection and Prior scoots round to cut the ball off

Bangladesh 355/8   Naeem Islam 40* (122b 4x4)

102.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, wide of off this time, and Naeem has nothing to do with it

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, tight stuff from Bresnan, not giving Naeem anything and this one - speared at off stump on a length - is defended

102.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, strong finish from Bresnan! After moving the ball in to the right-handed Naeem with the first five, he gets one to nip away to beat the batsman's defensive prod. Close...

Bangladesh 359/8   Naeem Islam 40* (128b 4x4)

104.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, full and on the off stump, defended

104.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, in the off stump channel once again, but wide enough for Naeem to lift the bat out of the way and leave alone

104.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, there's that ball that jags away off the seam once again! Naeem pulled the bat away from it, pulling it inside the line, but only after the ball had already beaten him.

104.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, in the channel again, but a good 8 inches outside off stump and left alone

104.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, metronomic stuff from Bresnan, hurling the ball down on a length around off stump time and again. This time it's defended

104.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, back of a length and rearing up at the batsman, the ball squirts off the outer half of the bat but played with soft hands to send it down safely and into the gap between slip and gully for four

Bangladesh 373/8   Naeem Islam 44* (134b 5x4)

106.1

106.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, just outside off, and left alone

106.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, outside off and left alone again

106.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, rare lapse of concentration from Bresnan as he sprays the ball wide down the leg side. But a diving Matt Prior cuts it off

106.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, on a length on off stump and Naeem stands up tall to ride the bounce and drop the ball down defensively at his feet

106.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run

Bangladesh 381/8   Naeem Islam 44* (140b 5x4)

108.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, 1 run, just short of a good length, and enough width for Naeem to guide the ball down to the right of third man

Bangladesh 388/8   Naeem Islam 45* (141b 5x4)

109.1

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, he starts with a solid forward defensive. Patient, so far

109.2

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, full and a foot outside off stump, Naeem drives the ball square to the deep point fielder, but turns down the run

109.3

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, aimed at middle and leg, and Naeem shuffles across and tucks the ball defensively to leg

109.4

Finn to Naeem Islam, 1 run, Finn fires in the yorker just wide of off, and Naeem digs it out. He's done well to pick up a run there, just running the ball off the face down to third man

Bangladesh 389/9   Naeem Islam 46* (145b 5x4)

110.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, Bresnan continues to wobble the ball around the off stump, he has bowled tidily all tour, Naeem leaves alone

110.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, this is a fraction further outside off stump, Naeem happily bides his time, leaving alone

110.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, Bresnan quickly adjusts his line, honing in on off stump, Naeem not looking for anything expansive early in the over, just blocks

110.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, slightly fuller, Naeem rocks forwards and defends once more

110.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, someone with a laptop in the England dressing room should do a fancy calculation to work out how many runs have gone through third man. Or they could trust their eyes. Whatever really. Naeem angles this through to the third man region to bring up an excellent fifty, really fighting hard

110.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, sees out the over with a resolute defence and Rubel will have strike next over

Bangladesh 397/9   Naeem Islam 50* (151b 6x4)

112.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, amusingly Tim Bresnan has a desperate sounding, elongated appeal, like a man falling down a long slide without wanting to. Or something. It was a bouncer, by the way, which Naeem ducked under

112.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, full toss pushed out into the off side, but the real story here is that a third man has been placed!

112.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, outside off stump, Naeem has better things to do than play at it, like leave

112.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, well if anything could exemplify the slowness of the pitch it was this, dug in short, Naeem thought about ducking, then thought about swaying, then decided, after another pause to pull it down towards fine leg without getting it away, he probably had time for three other shots in between

112.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, once again blocked comfortably

112.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, well, having finally decided to post a third man, there was a rather cunning plan to remove it, Naeem duly angled it away for four straight where the man would/should have been. Top stuff from him

Bangladesh 405/9   Naeem Islam 54* (157b 7x4)

114.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, fuller and slightly angled down leg side, tickled round the corner to fine leg but they reject the single

114.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, this time it's outside off stump, Naeem leaves alone

114.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, I'm not quite sure how you'd get Naeem out here, he'll probably have to gift his wicket, but he's in no mood to right now, defending resolutely instead

114.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, defended again firmly into the covers

114.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, with two balls left, Cook adjusts the field, removing the third man, Naeem is thinking a little quicker, or at least the edge of his bat is, so it flies along the ground straight to where the fielder should have been again for another boundary

114.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, easily blocked away to end the over

Bangladesh 417/9   Naeem Islam 58* (163b 8x4)

115.3

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, Naeem defends this very easily off the back foot

115.4

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, slightly fuller, very slow turn, Naeem defends

115.5

Swann to Naeem Islam, 1 run, milked, rarely have Test runs been as easy, tapped down to long on for one

Bangladesh 419/9   Naeem Islam 59* (166b 8x4)

116.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, if Bresnan was taller he would be a real handful, he rarely errs from the off stump line, Naeem is forced into a tight defence

116.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, once again probing the off-stump channel, Naeem is solidly behind it

116.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, drags his length back a fraction, but the line remains impeccable, Naeem is equal to it all, defending well

116.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, Naeem defends off the front foot well again, is he waiting for another third-man trick shot?

116.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, Bresnan giving no room to work with, and Naeem giving nothing away either

116.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, completes an excellent maiden over with a rising ball outside off that Naeem defends

Bangladesh 419/9   Naeem Islam 59* (172b 8x4)
