82.4

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this over has been pretty metronomic so far - once again, finds a good length and Rahim leaps back to defend

82.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, that is an absolute beauty! He's kept it on that length all over and now he's got the reward. Once again, Rahim went back to defend but this time the ball jagged away from him and bounced just enough to take the shoulder of the bat. Prior makes no mistake behind the stumps. That's really a great effort from Bresnan to draw some life from this flat wicket, and Bangladesh lose another one!
