England won by 9 wickets

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

0.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, good ball to start, nice and full, wobbling in the air and jagging away off the seam to take the edge of the bat - but it's sped down to third man for four!

0.2

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, wider of off, and left alone by Tamim - who's 21 today, by the way

0.2

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, fuller and wider and the ball carries through at knee height to Rahim

0.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Broad keeping the ball full, this one's pitched up again on off stump and defended firmly into the off side

0.4

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 3 runs, fuller still, and driven very well by Tamim straight down the ground, beating mid off. He didn't quite get hold of it though, and they run three as the ball slows up near the rope

0.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, pitched up and Kayes gets forward to defend. The pitch looks hard, dry and grassless - plenty of cracks on it, but they're all very fine

0.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, on a length, and Kayes moves across and onto the back foot to defend the ball back down the wicket

Bangladesh 7/0   SCJ Broad 1-0-7-0

2.1

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, good, tight stuff from Broad so far - he's found just the right length again and Kayes defends off the back foot with a straight bat

2.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, pulled down slightly shorter, but Kayes gets across right behind the line of the ball and rides the bounce to defend onto the leg side

2.3

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, a touch of width given this time, and Kayes pushes the ball firmly to point off the back foot

2.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, great ball, in the channel outside off and seaming away from the left hander, Kayes plays the line and is beaten as the ball moves away - he played inside it

2.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, defended back down the pitch

2.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, shorter this time, but it's wide of off and left alone

Bangladesh 17/0   SCJ Broad 2-1-7-0

4.1

Broad to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, Imrul on his way now, juicy half-volley on leg stump, Imrul obliges by clipping firmly to the midwicket boundary

4.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, full once more, a touch straighter, Imrul works it away without timing it perfectly, towards the midwicket region

4.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Broad round the wicket, pitching full and Tamim drives gently back to Broad

4.4

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 leg bye, angled a little too far down the leg side, Tamim helps it round the corner for one

4.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 2 runs, dug in a fraction against Imrul, he hasn't really been tested yet with bouncers, Imrul plays it well here, up on his toes and working it down to fine leg

4.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, there is the first real bouncer, short and sharp but flying down the leg side and it's easy for Imrul to get outside the line

Bangladesh 33/0   SCJ Broad 3-1-14-0

6.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, angled in from round the wicket, worked into the midwicket area

6.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, this time it's patted away into the off side

6.3

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, oops, a horrid delivery from Broad, speared miles down the leg side where a diving Matt Prior sticks out a glove and takes an excellent tumbling stop

6.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, much fuller and driven firmly back at Broad who fields in his follow through

6.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 4 leg byes, Broad getting his lines slightly wrong here, this is arrowed down leg, clips the pad and runs away to the fine leg boundary where a sprawling Tim Bresnan loses his trousers in his dive, but still can't stop the ball

6.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, this time it's directed better and driven back to Broad

Bangladesh 43/0   SCJ Broad 4-1-15-0

8.1

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, Broad goes full, Imrul is calm and defending

8.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, a touch too far down leg side, Broad has not been at his best with the new ball today, this is easily worked round the corner for a single

8.3

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, dropped Tamim gets away with another one! Really chancing his luck here. It was slightly held back from Broad, Tamim a touch lazily drove at the ball and it skewed off an inside edge high to Cook at mid on, who leapt, got two hands to it but couldn't hold on

8.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, carefully blocked into the off side

8.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, OUT, excellent catch this time! Imrul this time drove loosely and the ball ballooned towards the right of Finn at mid off. With the ball dying on him, he ran in and dived and held on to a fine catch. Poor shot to get out to

Imrul Kayes c Finn b Broad 12 (37m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

8.6

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, Siddique picks up where he left off in the second innings of Chittagong, solidly blocking back at Broad

Bangladesh 53/1   SCJ Broad 5-1-17-1

10.1

Broad to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, very nicely played, it was dug in short and Tamim rode the bounce and dropped it square of the wicket on the leg side. Top stuff from the birthday boy

10.2

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, shorter and delivered with a grunt, Siddique defends

10.3

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, good change of length from Broad, this time it is much fuller, looking to catch Siddique napping on the back foot, but instead he drives tidily

10.4

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, angled into the off side, Siddique watching the bounce very well here

10.5

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, much fuller and firmly clipped to Ian Ronald Bell at midwicket, who demonstrates just how mentally tough he's become by shaping to hurl the ball back at Siddique

10.6

Broad to Junaid Siddique, 3 runs, nicely played indeed, full ball pushed firmly down the ground for runs

Bangladesh 58/1   SCJ Broad 6-1-21-1

31.1

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, starts with a good, full ball, angled in to the pads from round the wicket and Junaid jabs down to defend

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, just short of a length on off stump, and Junaid pushes the ball softly into the covers

33.2

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, fuller and cracked firmly at mid off. Good looking drive, but can't quite time or place it

33.3

Broad to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, well there's timing and placement aplenty on that one! Another slower one from Broad, and Junaid leans across to drive the ball powerfully through the gap and away to the cover boundary

33.4

Broad to Junaid Siddique, no run, full on middle and leg, and this time it's punched to mid on

33.5

Broad to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, sprayed onto his pads and whipped powerfully away by Junaid. Good shot there, he lifted the back leg to keep his balance and flicked it away wristily

33.6

Broad to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, a gift from Broad! Gentle full toss outside off stump and Junaid capitalises fully, slapping the ball out to the cover boundary

71.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, onto the front foot this time and short cover is in action again

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, easily onto the front foot and drives into the covers

73.6

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, neatly worked off his pads, on leg stump again and it goes to deep square...Broad looks pretty tired out there, maybe feeling the after effects of his illness in the week

Bangladesh 289/6   SCJ Broad 11-3-38-1

81.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, and he, too, finds a hint of away movement straight away. It is wide enough that Naeem does not even consider a stroke, however

81.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, well, he's had a full go at that one after watching the first one go by! Slightly wide and Naeem slashed wildly, but - fortunately for him - didn't get anywhere near the ball

81.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, pitching outside off and shaping away, Naeem restores stability with a sensible leave

81.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, Broad draws some awkward bounce from this lifeless pitch, but Naeem keeps his eye on it and gets up onto his toes to play it down behind point

81.5

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, well, he's tried to leave that alone, but couldn't draw the bat out of the way in time. The ball takes the inside edge and bounces a couple of times on its way through to Prior

Bangladesh 301/6   SCJ Broad 12-4-38-1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, fuller and Naeem drives straight back to Broad

83.5

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, outside off stump and left alone

83.6

Broad to Naeem Islam, FOUR, cracking cover drive! Over-pitched by Broad, and the ball was met with a full flow of the bat by Naeem. Timed to perfection, the ball making a solid, healthy crack as it is met by the bat

Bangladesh 309/7   SCJ Broad 13-4-46-1

85.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, Naeem just waits deep in the crease and punches the ball through the gap on the off side. Well played, punchy drive off the back foot, and well stopped on the boundary too

85.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, Broad goes fuller this time, and Naeem drives but straight to mid off

85.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, ooh, that's jagged in off the seam and kept a little low as well. But Naeem was determined in defence, and did well to keep it out - albeit off the inside edge

85.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, good bowling from Broad, attacking the stumps, but Naeem is firmly behind it in defence

85.5

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, pulls the length back a touch, but the line is still straight and Naeem is still right behind the ball in defence

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, on a length once more, and Naeem moves across to drop the ball safely on the off side

Bangladesh 311/7   SCJ Broad 14-4-48-1

94.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, and Broad starts with a bouncer, which Naeem ducks underneath quite easily

94.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, fuller, aimed at the top of off stump this time, and the batsman presses forward to defend. Just one slip in for Naeem

94.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, (no ball) 1 run, and, as Broad oversteps by a good four inches, Naeem tucks the ball out to long leg

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   SCJ Broad 15-4-54-1

96.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, short of a good length - not a bouncer but Naeem ducks under it. The ball doesn't get up very high though, scooting just over the crouched batsman

96.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, stands up tall to defend this time, as Broad keeps the ball back of a length

96.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, goes full this time, the ball tailing in slightly to the toes and Naeem stays at the crease to dig it out to mid off

96.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, 1 run, more back of a length stuff, Naeem runs the ball of the face of the bat down to third man

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   SCJ Broad 16-4-59-1

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

98.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, short and Naeem crouches underneath it without alarm

98.5

Broad to Naeem Islam, 1 run, short and at the ribs, Naeem watches it well, however, and clips the ball down to fine leg after hopping onto the back foot

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

100.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, full, and Naeem gets the left leg forward and across to exhibit a solid forward defensive

100.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, full and driven hard into the covers

100.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, straying onto the legs, and Naeem shuffles across to try and get it away fine, but can't get the connection and Prior scoots round to cut the ball off

100.5

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, full again - looking for some swing - and driven off the front foot back to the bowler

100.6

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, full of length and pushed firmly to mid off
