108.3

Bresnan to Rubel Hossain, no run, and some spice immediately from Bresnan. A rising ball on off stump is fished at, and missed

108.4

Bresnan to Rubel Hossain, no run, too wide this time, and left alone by the batsman

108.5

Bresnan to Rubel Hossain, no run, length on off stump, and pushed into the covers

108.6

Bresnan to Rubel Hossain, no run, full and at the stumps, Rubel jams the bat down to send the ball to mid on

Bangladesh 388/9   Rubel Hossain 0* (4b)
109.5

Finn to Rubel Hossain, FOUR, full and Rubel gets half forward to defend. The ball took a thick edge but found the gap between the slips and the gully and, with no third man in place, down to the boundary

109.6

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, good ball from Finn, just outside off and Rubel has a little fiddle at it. Lucky not to get the edge there

Bangladesh 393/9   Rubel Hossain 4* (6b 1x4)
111.1

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, Rubel is nothing if not in control here, standing tall, offering the straightest of bats

111.2

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, another broad-batted defensive shot from Rubel, given his lowly average, he must be in the form of his life judging by this

111.3

Finn to Rubel Hossain, FOUR, wonderful batting from Rubel, looking every bit a top-order batsman, leaning gently into the ball and check-driving through the covers for four to bring up the 400

111.4

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, strides into a forward defence with confidence

111.5

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, good sharp ball from Finn, finds some bounce which follows Rubel. Finn then chunters a few words, Rubel's disinterest is quite enjoyable

111.6

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, flicked through into the midwicket region, they decide against the single

Bangladesh 401/9   Rubel Hossain 8* (12b 2x4)
113.1

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, good short ball again, Finn in one of his set-English-hearts-fluttering-with-extra-bounce moods it seems, Rubel sways out of the way hurriedly

113.2

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, another good sharp short ball, Finn finding life in this desperately poor, slow pitch, Rubel again hurries out the way

113.3

Finn to Rubel Hossain, FOUR, Finn pitches it up and is met by the correct full blade of Rubel, check-driving with authority back down the ground for four. Really good shot

113.4

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, you can forgive a No. 11 for things like this, just fencing the bat at a fullish ball outside off stump, he missed it of course, it's been that kind of morning

113.5

Finn to Rubel Hossain, no run, more solidly behind this one, no fuss, just a full face of the bat

113.6

Finn to Rubel Hossain, FOUR, brilliant, there is nothing quite as irking as a final wicket partnership, especially when runs come like this, genuine edge, between slip and a gully at catchable height, goes through to that boundary

Bangladesh 413/9   Rubel Hossain 16* (18b 4x4)
115.1

Swann to Rubel Hossain, no run, Rubel defends nonchalantly into the off side

115.2

Swann to Rubel Hossain, 1 run, quite a nice shot this, flicked from outside off stump through the midwicket region for an easy single

115.6

Swann to Rubel Hossain, no run, Rubel continues his good work, defending well, Swann looks to the heavens, and mutters words which would probably send him to hell

Bangladesh 419/9   Rubel Hossain 17* (21b 4x4)
117.1

Swann to Rubel Hossain, OUT, gone this time, Swann has the breakthrough! Rubel prodded forward and feathered an edge through to Prior, who made no mistake.

Rubel Hossain c †Prior b Swann 17 (40m 22b 4x4 0x6) SR: 77.27

Bangladesh 419/10   Rubel Hossain 17 (22b 4x4)
