Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, this is a bit of a gimme, dug in short and a touch wide, Shakib crashed it through point for four

39.3

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, well, what has happened here. Shakib seemed to push this firmly, but innocuously into the off side, but it's ricocheted off Cook's foot and looped to Prior. The question is whether it bounced on route to Cook's foot. Replays are thoroughly inconclusive. The umpires asked for the TV umpire to decide, and he took an age before ruling in favour of the batsman.

Bangladesh 201/4   Shakib Al Hasan 15* (33b 3x4)

49.1

49.2

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, pushed hard back to the bowler

49.3

58.2

59.2

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, length just outside off, and Shakib wants nothing to do with it. Not much in the pitch in the way of bounce when the ball is fuller, though, and Prior collects by his ankles

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, very full and slammed hard into the ground, bouncing up and over Finn but mid off runs round

61.4

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, and again! This drive was, if anything, the more languid and easy of the two, but the ball has raced away over the turf again

61.5

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, 3 runs, leg-stump half-volley this time, and flicked between mid on and midwicket for three. Finn is struggling with consistency of either line or length
