57.1

Finn to Mahmudullah, OUT, and he picks up a wicket with his first ball! The ball was pitched up and shaped away from the right-hander. Mahmudullah didn't get his foot to the pitch, and his weight was still on the back foot, and so he ended up slicing the drive to backward point to give Collingwood a very easy catch. He had played well for his half-century, but Bangladesh really needed him to push on for a big score.
