England in Bangladesh Test Series - 2nd Test

Bangladesh v England

England won by 9 wickets

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

Right, Tredwell's been taken out of the attack and he'll be replaced by Tim Bresnan. Can he get anything out of this older ball?

50.1

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, not really, and Mahmudullah forces the ball out into the covers... where Pietersen falls over the ball, making a mess of the stop and allowing the batsmen to run through for two

50.2

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, fuller and straighter this time, and Mahmudullah pushes forward to defend as the ball comes off the face and trickles behind point

50.3

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, pulls the length back a touch but, importantly, keeps a tight line. Mahmudullah is equal to it, though, and rocks back to defend

50.4

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, driven hard off the front foot into the covers, where Pietersen collects cleanly this time, eliciting ironic cheers from the crowd

50.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, just short of a length, and angling in to the batsmen. Mahmudullah tries to force it away behind square, but is just cramped for room

50.6

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, Bresnan slips in the full, straight ball, searching for the lbw. But Mahmudullah brings his bat down infront of the pad to keep the ball out

End of over 51 (2 runs) Bangladesh 207/4
Mahmudullah    46* (89b 7x4)      TT Bresnan    4-0-25-0
Shakib Al Hasan    19* (39b 4x4)      GP Swann    20-3-68-2

51.1

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, full and slapped to cover

51.2

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, too short from Swann, Shakib leans back to slash it away. Pietersen makes good ground from point to make a tumbling stop, and some confusion between the batsmen after the misfield almost results in a run out. Every back in time though

51.3

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, pushed firmly into the covers, and picking the gap

51.4

Swann to Mahmudullah, FOUR, classic cover drive from Mahmudullah, right out of the coaching manual. All timing and high elbow. And that's his fifty too, nice way to bring it up

51.5

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, Swann gives this one a real rip, and the flight is spot on too, but Mahmudullah stretches forward to keep it out

51.6

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, tapped defensively into the covers

End of over 52 (5 runs) Bangladesh 212/4
Mahmudullah    50* (92b 8x4)      GP Swann    21-3-73-2
Shakib Al Hasan    20* (42b 4x4)      TT Bresnan    4-0-25-0

Batting has looked pretty easy out there so far, which makes it all the more important for Bangladesh to dig in and post a big first innings total

52.1

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, speared in full from around the stumps, and Shakib goes for a booming drive but the ball takes the inside edge into the pad

52.2

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Big appeal! Shakib came forward to defend and the ball thudded into the pad, but he was hit outside the line - well outside the line - and there also may have been some bat involved

52.3

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, rocks back and across to get behind a length ball and defend

52.4

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Bresnan slips in the bumper, and Shakib sways out of the way as the ball whizzes past his nose

52.5

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, much fuller this time and Shakib hammers the straight drive back at Bresnan, who deflects the ball off his hand towards the stumps. He misses, but the batsmen decide against the run as mid on swoops

52.6

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Shakib leans back and jabs the bat down to defend, as we are treated to the sight of an enormous, shirtless, bright pink Englishman soaking up some rays and some local hospitality

End of over 53 (maiden) Bangladesh 212/4
Shakib Al Hasan    20* (48b 4x4)      TT Bresnan    5-1-25-0
Mahmudullah    50* (92b 8x4)      GP Swann    21-3-73-2

Swann comes round the wicket, with three close catchers still in

53.1

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, defended watchfully off the front foot

53.2

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, driven, but straight back to the bowler

53.3

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, on the toes and whipped to leg, but straight to square leg

53.4

Swann to Mahmudullah, 2 runs, Swann pulls the length back just a little too much, and Mahmudullah forces the ball through the covers. Finn runs round to collect

53.5

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, pushed back to the bowler off the back foot

53.6

Swann to Mahmudullah, no run, full and straight and Mahmudullah prods forward to defend

End of over 54 (2 runs) Bangladesh 214/4
Mahmudullah    52* (98b 8x4)      GP Swann    22-3-75-2
Shakib Al Hasan    20* (48b 4x4)      TT Bresnan    5-1-25-0

54.1

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Shakib rocks back to defend

Incidentally, he's just passed 1,000 runs in Test cricket. Well played, sir

54.2

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Bresnan strays onto the hips, and Shakib tries to nudge the ball away but can't find the gap

54.3

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, fuller, decent pace on the ball and it's the pace that has just beaten Shakib as he tries to drive into the off side but the ball strikes the inside half of the bat

54.4

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, dropped with soft hands into the off side, and they steal a run

54.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, sprayed down leg by Bresnan, Prior makes some ground and dives to his left to cut off the stray ball

54.6

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, Bresnan getting the ball to shape in to the right-hander a touch. Mahmudullah pushes out to drive, but the ball wobbles in and ricochets off the inside edge

End of over 55 (1 run) Bangladesh 215/4
Mahmudullah    52* (100b 8x4)      TT Bresnan    6-1-26-0
Shakib Al Hasan    21* (52b 4x4)      GP Swann    22-3-75-2

55.1

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, flighted by Swann, and Shakib aims a loose-footed drive through the off side. Can't pierce the field, however

55.2

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Shakib lunges out to defend a full ball

55.3

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, and again, this one almost beat him as it drifted towards the pads and then turned off the pitch, but he got the bat down in time

55.4

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, defended off the front foot once again

55.5

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, short and wide from Swann, and Shakib makes him pay for it, leaning back to cut the ball hard to the point boundary - and that's the fifty partnership

55.6

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, and after that, he reverts to defensive mode. Good batting, just waiting for the bad ball

End of over 56 (4 runs) Bangladesh 219/4
Shakib Al Hasan    25* (58b 5x4)      GP Swann    23-3-79-2
Mahmudullah    52* (100b 8x4)      TT Bresnan    6-1-26-0

56.1

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, FOUR, edged! The ball was short of length and went away off the pitch. Mahmudullah just hung his bat out and it went off the edge and through the vacant second slip area

56.2

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, Bresnan pushes the ball up fuller, and again the ball just moves away from the right-hander, beating his tentative forward prod

56.3

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, dug in and fired at the hips, the pace on the ball beating the batsman as the ball thuds into the thigh pad

56.4

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, no run, full and wide outside off, Mahmudullah plays a very loose and airy drive and misses the ball completely. Didn't look good at all, and Shakib has come down the wicket to have a word with him as a second slip is now brought in

56.5

Bresnan to Mahmudullah, 3 runs, Mahmudullah walks down the pitch as Bresnan digs in a bouncer. He is cramped for space as the ball rushes on to him, but he goes for the shot all the same and hits the ball in the air towards midwicket and they run a hard three

56.6

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, unsure of which way the ball will move, Shakib just gets behind the line and plays defensively and with a straight bat

End of over 57 (7 runs) Bangladesh 226/4
Shakib Al Hasan    25* (59b 5x4)      TT Bresnan    7-1-33-0
Mahmudullah    59* (105b 9x4)      GP Swann    23-3-79-2

Steven Finn to take up the attack from this end, after Tamim dispatched his first two overs for 22. Two slips in

57.1

Finn to Mahmudullah, OUT, and he picks up a wicket with his first ball! The ball was pitched up and shaped away from the right-hander. Mahmudullah didn't get his foot to the pitch, and his weight was still on the back foot, and so he ended up slicing the drive to backward point to give Collingwood a very easy catch. He had played well for his half-century, but Bangladesh really needed him to push on for a big score.

Mahmudullah c Collingwood b Finn 59 (123m 106b 9x4 0x6) SR: 55.66

Finn makes immediate amends for his first spell

57.2

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Rahim leaves his first ball alone, and rightly too as it was full, wide, and reversing away from him

57.3

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Finn slams the ball into the wicket on a length, the ball spits up but Rahim is behind it and rides the bounce well as he defends off the back foot

57.4

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, and again, this one leaps off a length to strike Rahim's bottom hand as he gets behind it to defend

57.5

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fuller this time, but wide and left alone

57.6

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, on a length and just outside off, shaping away just a little, but enough for Rahim to leave confidently

Good comeback over from Finn after the pasting he received in his first spell

End of over 58 (wicket maiden) Bangladesh 226/5
Mushfiqur Rahim    0* (5b)      ST Finn    3-1-22-1
Shakib Al Hasan    25* (59b 5x4)      TT Bresnan    7-1-33-0

58.1

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, just short of a length and wide enough of off stump that Shakib tries to force it square off the back foot, but he picks out the fielder

58.2

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, fuller this time, but outside off again and that must have hit a crack or something, it really jagged away from Shakib after pitching. He had already made the decision to leave it alone, however

58.3

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, straighter this time and Shakib moves across to work the ball to the leg side

58.4

Bresnan to Shakib Al Hasan, 1 run, length ball on off stump, and Shakib just drops it on the off side and sets off immediately for the run. Rahim was slow to get going, but scampered home safely enough in the end

58.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, wide of off and left well alone with the bat lifted high over his head

58.6

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, full and Rahim checks his drive into the covers. The bat made a healthy sound as it connected with ball, but the shot went straight to the fielder

End of over 59 (1 run) Bangladesh 227/5
Mushfiqur Rahim    0* (7b)      TT Bresnan    8-1-34-0
Shakib Al Hasan    26* (63b 5x4)      ST Finn    3-1-22-1

59.1

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, and that shapes back in to Shakib from over the wicket, but he gets right behind it and drives hard to mid on. The ball is certainly starting to move though

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

59.3

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

59.4

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Finn comes wider of the crease and angles it across the left-hander, but too wide and left alone

59.5

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, Finn bends his back delivering that one, and the ball bounces up off a length, but Shakib watches it carefully and runs it off the face of the bat down to third man

59.6

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, full and swinging in to the pads and Shakib shuffles across to work the ball powerfully off his pads. Races away to the square leg boundary

End of over 60 (8 runs) Bangladesh 235/5
Shakib Al Hasan    34* (69b 7x4)      ST Finn    4-1-30-1
Mushfiqur Rahim    0* (7b)      TT Bresnan    8-1-34-0

60.1

60.3

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Rahim presses forward to defend

60.4

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, 2 runs, too short from Tredwell, and Rahim moves back and away to force the ball through the covers

60.5

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, flighted on middle, but Rahim defends rather than trying to work it to leg

60.6

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, tapped out infront of point

End of over 61 (2 runs) Bangladesh 237/5
Mushfiqur Rahim    2* (13b)      JC Tredwell    18-3-56-1
Shakib Al Hasan    34* (69b 7x4)      ST Finn    4-1-30-1

I've just heard that David Lloyd has been diagnosed with dengue fever. Ugh, shame man!

61.1

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, Shakib rides the bounce to defend the ball into the covers

61.2

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, and again, getting behind the ball and up to his full height to defend

61.3

Finn to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, wonderful drive from Shakib! The ball was too full and too wide, but it still had to be put away and the Bangladesh captain did it in style, just easing the ball through the covers

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

61.6

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, 2 runs, he draws the edge from Rahim! But it's played with soft hands and wide of the slips, and cut off before it can reach the third man boundary.

Andrew McGlashan has wandered in, and his fresh set of fingers will be rattling away with insightful commentary when play resumes in a few minutes time.

And the umpires have called tea on the first afternoon at Mirpur. If anyone is just joining us, have a look at Sahil's bulletin to catch up on everything you've missed. Also, a reminder to anyone who is joining us from the US of A: you can watch the action live at ESPN360. That's just for folks in the US, though.

End of over 62 (13 runs) Bangladesh 250/5
Mushfiqur Rahim    4* (14b)      ST Finn    5-1-43-1
Shakib Al Hasan    45* (74b 9x4)      JC Tredwell    18-3-56-1

Hello folks, Andrew here for the first hour of this evening session. It's been hard work for the bowlers on another flat pitch, but they have five scalps. Bangladesh's target has to be to lose no more than one wicket in the next two hours...if they could be 350 for 6 at the close that would be a good day for them. James Tredwell will start off.

62.1

Tredwell to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, good one first up, quicker ball on off stump and Shakib had to jab down quickly

62.2

Tredwell to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, huge appeal from Prior as this one drifts into towards leg stump, if there's no inside edge that's close...possibly going down on the angle

62.3

Tredwell to Shakib Al Hasan, no run, pushed to the off side

62.4

Tredwell to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, all action so far, skips down the pitch and lofts him clean over mid off

62.5

Tredwell to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, gone this time! Shakib couldn't resist another attacking stroke, this time a sweep and he's taken on the back leg...huge appeal from Tredwell and that's his second Test wicket as the finger goes up. Big breakthrough for England after tea

Shakib Al Hasan lbw b Tredwell 49 (97m 79b 10x4 0x6) SR: 62.02

A disappointing shot from Shakib and the lower order is exposed

62.6

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, slow turn from outside off, defended on the back foot

The perfect start for England after the interval...they will sense a chance to wrap this innings up, but Naeem showed he could bat at Chittagong and Rahim is in great form

End of over 63 (4 runs) Bangladesh 254/6
Naeem Islam    0* (1b)      JC Tredwell    19-3-60-2
Mushfiqur Rahim    4* (14b)      ST Finn    5-1-43-1

63.5

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, plays back, defended back down the pitch

63.6

Mushfiqur Rahim    26* (43b 3x4 1x6)      SCJ Broad    10-3-37-1

Broad blows hard before the starting another over

73.1

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, on off stump, searching for reverse swing, driven up to mid on

73.2

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, 4 leg byes, loses his line down the leg side, clips the pad and evades Prior's dive as it races to fine leg

73.3

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, a slightly flat-footed drive to a slower ball goes to mid on

73.4

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, punched straight back down the pitch and cannons into the non-striker's stumps...that's when a shot is too straight

73.5

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

End of over 74 (5 runs) Bangladesh 289/6
Mushfiqur Rahim    27* (49b 3x4 1x6)      SCJ Broad    11-3-38-1
Naeem Islam    8* (32b)      JC Tredwell    24-3-80-2

74.1

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, on the stumps, defended to the on side

74.3

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, worked in front of short leg

74.4

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, dropped, a thick edge as Rahim pushes off the back foot and Prior can't gather it either at the first or second attempt

A tough chance for Prior, but it would have been timely for England

74.5

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run

74.6

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 bye, down the leg side, bobbles towards short fine leg

End of over 75 (3 runs) Bangladesh 292/6

75.1

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, back of a length, defended back down the pitch

75.2

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, pushed down the leg side, Prior collects on the second bounce as he skips across

Prior still stewing about that chance

75.3

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, banged in back of a length, searching for any hint of extra bounce and it's driven off the back foot into the covers

75.4

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, down the leg side again from Finn but Rahim doesn't make contact with his flick

75.5

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fuller on off stump, onto the front foot and defended into the covers

76.4

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, punched square on the off side this time to a ball wider outside off

76.5

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, steps onto the front foot and defends into the covers

Another useful partnership building between this pair

76.6

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, defended from middle with a straight bat

End of over 77 (maiden) Bangladesh 292/6
Naeem Islam    8* (38b)      JC Tredwell    26-4-82-2
Mushfiqur Rahim    29* (61b 3x4 1x6)      ST Finn    6-2-43-1

77.1

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, perfect defence from Rahim to a ball on middle stump, Finn collects in his follow through

77.2

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fuller on off stump, comes half forward and defends into the covers

Paul Collingwood doing some stretches

77.3

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, on off stump, driven to the England captain at mid off

Will England take the new ball straight away?

77.4

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, touch more bounce on this one, but the pitch is so slow that Rahim can adjust easily and defend square on the off side

77.5

Finn to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, targets middle stump, worked just to the right of mid on and there's a scampered single but it's fairly comfortable in the end

77.6

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, back of a length, hint of movement into Naeem who defends to the off side

End of over 78 (1 run) Bangladesh 293/6
Naeem Islam    8* (39b)      ST Finn    7-2-44-1
Mushfiqur Rahim    30* (66b 3x4 1x6)      JC Tredwell    26-4-82-2

78.6

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, onto the back foot, pushed square on the off side as he tried to give himself room to cut

End of over 79 (maiden) Bangladesh 293/6
Mushfiqur Rahim    30* (72b 3x4 1x6)      JC Tredwell    27-5-82-2
Naeem Islam    8* (39b)      ST Finn    7-2-44-1

So, Paul Collingwood is fit to bowl because here he comes for a trundle for the first time this series. Matt Prior up to the stumps

79.1

Collingwood to Naeem Islam, no run, outside off, defended into the covers...looks like seam up

A wide slip in place and a short cover

79.2

Collingwood to Naeem Islam, no run, very full, dug out back to the bowler in his follow through

79.3

Collingwood to Naeem Islam, no run, gets the outside edge, but it's very controlled from Naeem as he defends down to backward point

79.4

Collingwood to Naeem Islam, FOUR, this edge isn't controlled, but it goes through the vacant first slip although it probably wouldn't have carried in any event

79.5

Collingwood to Naeem Islam, no run, on off stump, defended into the off side

79.6

Collingwood to Naeem Islam, FOUR, lovely shot, driven through the covers sweetly off the front foot with the timing to reach the boundary

That's a good way to go for drinks for Bangladesh as they bring up their 300. For the final hour of the day it's back over to Liam.

End of over 80 (8 runs) Bangladesh 301/6
Naeem Islam    16* (45b 2x4)      PD Collingwood    1-0-8-0
Mushfiqur Rahim    30* (72b 3x4 1x6)      JC Tredwell    27-5-82-2

And the new ball has, indeed, been taken. Tim Bresnan will have first use of it. Two slips in place.

Tamim Iqbal dispatched the first new ball to all parts, but Rahim and Naeem will, surely, be more circumspect at this stage of the day and with very little batting to come.

Thanks Gnasher. Well, I don't see how England can do anything but take the new ball after that over, as tired as Stuart Broad seems. As Mike Atherton points out, the ball "looks like it's been chewed by a dog".

80.1

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, and he starts by landing the ball on a good length, but wide of off stump and shaping away just a little from the right-hander. Left alone by Rahim

80.2

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, and again, on a length but outside off and a hint of away movement. Rahim offers no shot, and wisely so

80.3

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, even wider this time - wide enough to tempt Rahim into having a little tickle at it... almost

80.4

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Bresnan nips one back in off the seam, but Rahim is right behind it and defends with the full face of the bat

80.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fuller this time and seaming in very slightly. Rahim defends on the walk as he moves forward

80.6

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, and he finds that away movement once more. Rahim spots it just in time, however, whipping the bat out of the line of the ball and away from danger

End of over 81 (maiden) Bangladesh 301/6
Mushfiqur Rahim    30* (78b 3x4 1x6)      TT Bresnan    9-2-34-0
Naeem Islam    16* (45b 2x4)      PD Collingwood    1-0-8-0

Stuart Broad will share the new ball

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

81.6

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, very full and he tries to whip it to leg, but can't time it

End of over 82 (maiden) Bangladesh 301/6
Naeem Islam    16* (51b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    12-4-38-1
Mushfiqur Rahim    30* (78b 3x4 1x6)      TT Bresnan    9-2-34-0

82.1

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Bresnan settles into a good length, just a touch short on off stump and Rahim gets back and across to defend

82.2

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, and again, bouncing up at Rahim but he gets behind it solidly

82.3

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, pushed ever so slightly fuller, and Bresnan also finds some seam movement into the batsman. But Rahim plays a sensible defensive stroke to keep it out

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!

Mushfiqur Rahim c †Prior b Bresnan 30 (96m 83b 3x4 1x6) SR: 36.14

extra slip and a gully in now

82.6

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, but Razzak defends the ball safely - in his own fashion, not getting in line and playing the ball on the move, but kept out well enough

End of over 83 (wicket maiden) Bangladesh 301/7
Abdur Razzak    0* (1b)      TT Bresnan    10-3-34-1
Naeem Islam    16* (51b 2x4)      SCJ Broad    12-4-38-1

83.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, on a length from Broad, the ball doesn't really get up, however, although there is a hint of movement off the seam. Defended

83.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, once again, on a length on off stump, and Naeem leans back to defend with a straight bat

The new-ball bowlers working up some good pressure on the batsmen now, giving them nothing at all to hit

83.3

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

83.4

Broad to Naeem Islam, FOUR, full again and he aims for another straight drive, but the ball streaks off the inside edge down to long leg. Broad can barely believe it

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

End of over 84 (8 runs) Bangladesh 309/7
Naeem Islam    24* (57b 4x4)      SCJ Broad    13-4-46-1
Abdur Razzak    0* (1b)      TT Bresnan    10-3-34-1

84.1

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, dug in short by Bresnan. Razzak doesn't pick it straight away but such is the slowness of the wicket that he still has time to duck underneath it

84.2

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, wide of off stump this time, and Razzak lets the ball go by

84.3

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, closer to the batsman this time, and a touch shorter. But Razzak drops his hands as the ball goes by, making sure to get the bat out of the path of the ball

84.4

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, Razzak is beaten this time. The ball was pitched much closer to him, and was angled across. He definitely played at it, but was beaten by the angle and a modicum of movement

84.5

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, straighter this time, and defended with minimal foot movement by Razzak

84.6

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, short, wide and going wider with the angle across the left-hander. Left alone

End of over 85 (maiden) Bangladesh 309/7
Abdur Razzak    0* (7b)      TT Bresnan    11-4-34-1
Naeem Islam    24* (57b 4x4)      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

85.6

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

End of over 86 (2 runs) Bangladesh 311/7
Naeem Islam    26* (63b 4x4)      SCJ Broad    14-4-48-1
Abdur Razzak    0* (7b)      TT Bresnan    11-4-34-1

86.1

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, 2 runs, Bresnan comes round the wicket, and Razzak responds to a length ball with a firm push that beats the bowler and mid off, as the batsmen sprint through for two

86.2

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, too wide to make Razzak play - left alone

86.3

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, fuller this time, and directed towards the stumps, but Razzak gets the bat down to defend despite the lack of foot movement

86.4

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, no run, pulls the length back a bit, and rolls the fingers on this one. It comes out much slower, but he can't get any purchase on the cutter with the new ball

86.5

Bresnan to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, another slower ball, and this one is much slower. But too straight, and Razzak shuffles across to work the ball to fine leg

86.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, attacking the stumps this time, but Naeem is equal to the task and defends watchfully to the leg side

End of over 87 (3 runs) Bangladesh 314/7
Naeem Islam    26* (64b 4x4)      TT Bresnan    12-4-37-1
Abdur Razzak    3* (12b)      SCJ Broad    14-4-48-1

And it looks as though Graeme Swann is going to have a crack with the new ball. Silly point, slip and short leg in...

87.1

Swann to Abdur Razzak, OUT, Gone! The ball was pitched full and straight, Razzak's feet went nowhere and his bat swished across the line as the ball thudded into the pad. Swann and the ring of close fielders went up in unison, and he looked plumb even from the first sighting. Swann strikes again with the first ball of a new spell!

Abdur Razzak lbw b Swann 3 (20m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

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

No close catchers for Naeem, apart from Collingwood at slip

87.6

Swann to Naeem Islam, 1 run, and Naeem keeps the strike with an easy single down to long on

End of over 88 (4 runs) Bangladesh 318/8
Naeem Islam    27* (65b 4x4)      GP Swann    27-4-88-3
Shafiul Islam    2* (4b)      TT Bresnan    12-4-37-1

88.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, slips onto the pads and Naeem manages to get the ball away into space, but decides against taking the single. Good choice, Shafiul looks a walking wicket

88.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, presses well forward to defend, pushing the ball to point

88.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, Bresnan digs one in very short. Naeem sways underneath it, but that was a particularly unthreatening bouncer

88.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, 1 run, jabbed firmly off the back foot out to deep cover point, and he takes the single this time

three slips, a gully and a bat-pad on the leg side for the tailender

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

End of over 89 (3 runs) Bangladesh 321/8
Shafiul Islam    4* (6b)      TT Bresnan    13-4-40-1
Naeem Islam    28* (69b 4x4)      GP Swann    27-4-88-3

89.1

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, Swann comes round the wicket, pitching the ball on off stump and Naeem leans forward to defend

89.2

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, similar ball, but Naeem just stands in the crease this time, bringing the bat down straight in defence

89.3

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, fuller, and he tries to get this one away through the leg side but finds the fielder

89.4

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, blocked carefully out into the off side now

mid off comes up now, Bell moves from bat-pad to square leg

89.5

Swann to Naeem Islam, 1 run, bunted down to long on, and Naeem takes the single to retain the strike in the next over. Why was long on not also brought up?

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

End of over 90 (1 run) Bangladesh 322/8
Shafiul Islam    4* (7b)      GP Swann    28-4-89-3
Naeem Islam    29* (74b 4x4)      TT Bresnan    13-4-40-1

Tredwell takes over from Bresnan

90.1

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, short and wide of off stump, and Naeem plays a deft late cut wide of third man to pick up two

90.2

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, wide of off again, and turning in. Naeem thinks about the late cut again, but pulls out of the shot

90.3

90.4

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, floated up a little more this time, and Naeem stretches out to defend

And Shafiul will be on strike to Swann

Naeem Islam    31* (80b 4x4)      JC Tredwell    28-5-84-2
Shafiul Islam    4* (7b)      GP Swann    28-4-89-3

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

End of over 92 (4 runs) Bangladesh 328/8
Shafiul Islam    8* (13b 1x4)      GP Swann    29-4-93-3
Naeem Islam    31* (80b 4x4)      JC Tredwell    28-5-84-2

92.3

Tredwell to Naeem Islam, no run, pitched up on off stump and driven hard back at the bowler

silly mid off, slip and short leg in

92.6

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

End of over 93 (1 run) Bangladesh 329/8

Hello everyone, and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of the second day of the second Test at Mirpur. Naeem and Shafiul Islam are at the wicket and Stuart Broad will open the bowling. Sahil Dutta and Liam Brickhill will be taking you through the first session.

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

Another slip comes in, as well as a gully

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

95.3

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, and once again, full on off stump and driven to deep mid off

95.4

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, stretches out to defend this time, the ball takes the inside edge onto the pad but the ball falls safely

fielders coming in now to keep Naeem on strike

95.5

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, and he steps out to defend back down the pitch

95.6

Swann to Naeem Islam, 3 runs, wide of off and glided effectively down to third man off the face of the bat. Nicely done, and Naeem will keep the strike - just as he would have hoped

End of over 96 (3 runs) Bangladesh 339/8
Naeem Islam    37* (100b 4x4)      GP Swann    31-4-97-3
Shafiul Islam    12* (18b 2x4)      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

End of over 97 (5 runs) Bangladesh 344/8
Shafiul Islam    16* (20b 3x4)      SCJ Broad    16-4-59-1
Naeem Islam    38* (104b 4x4)      GP Swann    31-4-97-3

97.1

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, Naeem steps back and across in the crease to defend the ball down on the leg side

97.2

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, pushing forward this time, but the stroke is defensive once again

97.3

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, Swann dishes out a short, wide ball and Naeem slashes it away to deep point, but turns down the single

97.4

97.5

Naeem Islam    38* (110b 4x4)      GP Swann    32-5-97-3
Shafiul Islam    16* (20b 3x4)      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

End of over 99 (10 runs) Bangladesh 354/8
Shafiul Islam    25* (24b 5x4)      SCJ Broad    17-4-69-1
Naeem Islam    39* (112b 4x4)      GP Swann    32-5-97-3

slip and short leg in

99.3

Swann to Naeem Islam, no run, he stretches the left leg out to defend

99.4

Swann to Naeem Islam, 1 run, quicker through the air, but Naeem picks it early to bunt the ball down to long on and, as it is almost the end of the over, he takes one

silly point and short midwicket come in

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

Steve has set up this link so well, it would be rude not to oblige. "I just wanted to thank cricinfo for letting us here in the States see some cricket. I can finally see what different strokes look like instead of visualising them." So, if like Steve you're in the US and sick of trying to visualise from our shoddy notes, you can watch this match live on ESPN360
