Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

87.2

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, floated up full and straight, and Shafiul defends back down the pitch

87.3

Swann to Shafiul Islam, 2 runs, Swann slips one too short, and Shafiul chops the ball away through the covers for a couple

87.4

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, tossed up invitingly, Shafiul goes for an adventurous drive and misses completely. Prior has the bails off in a flash and they've gone to the third umpire for the stumping appeal... Not out is the call. Close one, though

87.5

Swann to Shafiul Islam, 1 leg bye, pushed through quicker this time, but the line is wrong and Shafiul shuffles across and picks up a leg bye

Bangladesh 317/8   Shafiul Islam 2* (4b)

88.5

Bresnan to Shafiul Islam, 2 runs, wide delivery and Shafiul works the ball away nicely off the face and past gully

88.6

Bresnan to Shafiul Islam, no run, that's jagged back in sharply! The ball was pitched on a length and seamed in viciously, nearly sneaking through the acres of space between bat and pad, but off the inside edge

Bangladesh 321/8   Shafiul Islam 4* (6b)

89.6

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, and Shafiul survives, lunging forward to defend and doing a good, if slightly awkward, job of it

Bangladesh 322/8   Shafiul Islam 4* (7b)

91.1

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, drifts away and then turns in sharply, and keeps very low on middle stump, but Shafiul jams the bat down on it

91.2

Swann to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, well, fancy that! Pitched up and scythed through the covers by Shafiul. He's hit that really well!

91.3

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, full again and tapped to mid on

91.4

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, a little short outside off, and Shafiul chops the ball behind square on the off side. He asks about the run, but Naeem says no

91.5

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, back and across in defence

91.6

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, full and driven through the gap in the covers, but Naeem doesn't take the single as he wants to have the strike in what will, in all likelihood, be the last over

Bangladesh 328/8   Shafiul Islam 8* (13b 1x4)

92.6

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, and it's short, wide and slashed hard by Shafiul, but straight to point

Bangladesh 329/8   Shafiul Islam 8* (14b 1x4)

94.3

Broad to Shafiul Islam, no run, Broad unleashes a nasty, lifting ball just outside off stump, but Shafiul drops the hands on it and lets the ball go through

94.4

Broad to Shafiul Islam, no run, nudged uncertainly to mid on

94.5

Broad to Shafiul Islam, no run, very full again, just a hint of movement in to the right-hander, and pushed to mid on once again

94.6

Broad to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, outside off stump and Shafiul flings the bat wide of the body without getting anywhere near in line. The ball went uppishly through the gap between the slips and gully and rolled away to third man

Bangladesh 336/8   Shafiul Islam 12* (18b 2x4)

96.5

Broad to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, thrashed through the covers! Not a bad ball, on a length on off stump and swinging in and Shafiul just steps out and gives a full swing of the blade to send the ball through the covers

96.6

Broad to Shafiul Islam, no run, fuller and very firmly hit once more, but Bell is in the covers to cut it off. Two good shots for a tailender there

Bangladesh 344/8   Shafiul Islam 16* (20b 3x4)

98.1

Broad to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, short, Shafiul stays leg side of the ball and runs it off the face, finding the gap between slip and gully to perfection

98.2

Broad to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, and again, hit harder this time but the ball and shot were very much similar. Odd field for Broad, particularly with Shafiul playing the way he is - stepping away to leg. And there are three men out on the leg side for him

98.3

Broad to Shafiul Islam, 1 run, on off stump and he aims another flat-footed drive through the covers, but the ball takes the inside edge down to fine leg

98.6

Broad to Shafiul Islam, no run, full and defended to mid on, the ball squirting off the inner half of the bat as Shafiul presses tentatively forward

Bangladesh 354/8   Shafiul Islam 25* (24b 5x4)

99.5

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, tucked down to short third man off the back foot

99.6

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, tossed up outside off and he stretches out to defend to the off side

Bangladesh 355/8   Shafiul Islam 25* (26b 5x4)

101.1

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, beaten! The ball drifted away and turned in a touch, beating the batsman in the flight and just brushing past the outside edge without making contact

101.2

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, gets forward to defend back to the bowler

101.3

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, and once again, the ball is tossed up and is met with a stretch and the full face of the bat

101.4

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, pushed into the covers off the front foot

101.5

Swann to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, shot! Quicker ball from Swann - arm ball - and Shafiul picked it up early and leaned forward to scythe the ball through the covers. Well, it certainly looks to be an easy-paced pitch with shots like that!

101.6

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, flighted again, and Shafiul defends

Bangladesh 359/8   Shafiul Islam 29* (32b 6x4)

103.1

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, on the front foot, and pushed to mid on

103.2

Swann to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, Shafiul is enjoying himself out there! No foot movement, but the weight goes forward and he swings through the line to send the ball through the covers, beating the fielders and away to the boundary

103.3

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, pressing forward to defend

103.4

Swann to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, rank long hop, absolute filth from Swann and Shafiul rocks back to pull the ball handsomely over square leg. Good shot to a bad ball

103.5

Swann to Shafiul Islam, no run, Swann finds his mark again, and Shafiul responds with watchful defence

103.6

Swann to Shafiul Islam, 2 runs, well, he didn't seem to hit that too hard but the ball raced away off the drive over a quick outfield and they pick up a couple

Bangladesh 369/8   Shafiul Islam 39* (38b 8x4)

105.1

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, floated up with some turn in to the batsman and defended

105.2

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, tossed up again, and Shafiul's eyes light up - he just stands there and clubs the ball away, over the bowler and past mid off for four

105.3

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, tries to slash a shorter ball from Tredwell, but the shot meets only fresh air

105.4

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, defended off the front foot

105.5

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, and now off the back foot, defended again

105.6

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, Shafiul is going for his shots here, and he's pulling it off! This one was flighted on middle and leg, and he cleared the left leg to try and hoick it over mid on. He didn't get the height or timing he was hoping for, but got just enough on it to beat the leaping mid on fielder. Exciting batting!

Bangladesh 381/8   Shafiul Islam 47* (44b 10x4)

107.1

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, tossed up and the batsman lunges out to defend

107.2

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, the length is pulled back just a touch and defended off the back foot

107.3

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, FOUR, there's the half century! Take a bow Shafiul Islam! The ball was tossed up on off stump and it was slammed up and over the covers, racing away for four. Excellent innings, all the more so from a No. 10 batsman

107.4

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, pressing forward to defend

107.5

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, 2 runs, deft touch from Shafiul, he steps back to run the ball off the face of the bat down to third man

107.6

Tredwell to Shafiul Islam, no run, full and Shafiul lunges out to smother the spin and defend

Bangladesh 387/8   Shafiul Islam 53* (50b 11x4)

108.2

Bresnan to Shafiul Islam, OUT, and Shafiul's cameo comes to an end. Bresnan fired the ball slightly wider of off and Shafiul threw his bat out at it without moving his feet an inch. The ball took a healthy edge, and though it died on its way through to Prior, he did well to dive forward and to his right to snaffle the catch. And so ends a good innings from Shafiul, which took Bangladesh within touching distance of 400

Shafiul Islam c †Prior b Bresnan 53 (76m 51b 11x4 0x6) SR: 103.92

Bangladesh 388/9   Shafiul Islam 53 (51b 11x4)
