Finn to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, and Junaid joins in now as well! Just a touch short from round the wicket, and Junaid stands tall and thumps the ball on the up through the covers. The batsmen have been utterly confident in their strokeplay on this placcid pitch

Bangladesh 99/1   Junaid Siddique 8* (11b 1x4)   ST Finn 1.1-0-13-0

Finn to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, fabulous strokeplay from Junaid! Pitched full and wide for the third time in a row, and after having had a look at the first two he square drives this one to the right of a diving Pietersen at point, and the ball races to the boundary

Bangladesh 104/1   Junaid Siddique 12* (15b 2x4)   ST Finn 1.4-0-18-0

Finn to Junaid Siddique, FOUR, and again! What is going on here? Finn pulls the length back and Junaid, who's clearly feeling confident, simply stands tall and hammers the ball through the covers off the back foot.

Bangladesh 108/1   Junaid Siddique 16* (17b 3x4)   ST Finn 2-0-22-0

Bangladesh 133/3   Junaid Siddique 25* (48b 4x4)   GP Swann 10.2-0-54-1

Tredwell to Mahmudullah, FOUR, last over before lunch, and what does he do? He gallops out to meet the ball on the half volley and slices a drive up and over cover and away to the boundary. Good shot, but one has to question it's use at this moment

Bangladesh 143/3   Mahmudullah 15* (31b 3x4)   JC Tredwell 8.1-2-17-1

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

Bangladesh 149/3   Junaid Siddique 29* (63b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 7.3-2-25-1

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

Tredwell to Mahmudullah, FOUR, and he's sent short leg diving for cover! Powerfully swept away to the square leg boundary - he had been eyeing that area out before the ball was bowled

Bangladesh 161/3   Mahmudullah 21* (37b 4x4)   JC Tredwell 9.1-2-23-1

Tredwell to Mahmudullah, FOUR, no matter what, boundaries will flow it seems, Tredwell a touch short here Mahmudullah gets back and crashes it through point

Bangladesh 171/4   Mahmudullah 29* (51b 5x4)   JC Tredwell 11.1-2-30-1

Bangladesh 175/4   Mahmudullah 33* (53b 6x4)   JC Tredwell 11.3-2-34-1

Bangladesh 179/4   Shakib Al Hasan 4* (2b 1x4)   GP Swann 14.2-1-62-2

Bangladesh 188/4   Shakib Al Hasan 8* (10b 2x4)   JC Tredwell 13.2-2-43-1

Tredwell to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, well, this is effective but looks a little dicey, swiping firmly through midwicket

Bangladesh 192/4   Shakib Al Hasan 12* (11b 3x4)   JC Tredwell 13.3-2-47-1

Swann to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, paddled very fine down to fine leg. The close fielders went up to appeal, but that was right off the face of the bat. Good execution but a very risky shot, he moved right across his stumps to play it

Bangladesh 205/4   Shakib Al Hasan 19* (36b 4x4)   GP Swann 19.3-3-68-2

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

Bangladesh 231/5   Shakib Al Hasan 30* (68b 6x4)   ST Finn 3.5-1-26-1

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

Bangladesh 235/5   Shakib Al Hasan 34* (69b 7x4)   ST Finn 4-1-30-1

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

Bangladesh 241/5   Shakib Al Hasan 38* (72b 8x4)   ST Finn 4.3-1-34-1

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

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, short and wide outside off, easy pickings for Rahim as he cuts it square through the off side for another boundary

Bangladesh 278/6   Mushfiqur Rahim 21* (36b 2x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 9-2-37-1

Tredwell to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, another cracker from Rahim, swift footwork and he launches it straight down the ground with a little twirl of his bat for good measure

Bangladesh 283/6   Mushfiqur Rahim 25* (39b 3x4 1x6)   JC Tredwell 22.4-3-79-2

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

Bangladesh 297/6   Naeem Islam 12* (43b 1x4)   PD Collingwood 0.4-0-4-0

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

Bangladesh 301/6   Naeem Islam 16* (45b 2x4)   PD Collingwood 1-0-8-0

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

Bangladesh 305/7   Naeem Islam 20* (55b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 12.4-4-42-1

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   Naeem Islam 24* (57b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 13-4-46-1

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

Bangladesh 328/8   Shafiul Islam 8* (9b 1x4)   GP Swann 28.2-4-93-3

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)   SCJ Broad 15-4-54-1

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

Bangladesh 344/8   Shafiul Islam 16* (19b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 15.5-4-59-1

Bangladesh 348/8   Shafiul Islam 20* (21b 4x4)   SCJ Broad 16.1-4-63-1

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

Bangladesh 352/8   Shafiul Islam 24* (22b 5x4)   SCJ Broad 16.2-4-67-1

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!

Bangladesh 359/8   Shafiul Islam 29* (31b 6x4)   GP Swann 33.5-5-102-3

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

Bangladesh 363/8   Shafiul Islam 33* (34b 7x4)   GP Swann 34.2-5-106-3

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

Bangladesh 367/8   Shafiul Islam 37* (36b 8x4)   GP Swann 34.4-5-110-3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, back of a length and rearing up at the batsman, the ball squirts off the outer half of the bat but played with soft hands to send it down safely and into the gap between slip and gully for four

Bangladesh 373/8   Naeem Islam 44* (134b 5x4)   TT Bresnan 15-5-44-1

Bangladesh 377/8   Shafiul Islam 43* (40b 9x4)   JC Tredwell 29.2-5-89-2

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)   JC Tredwell 30-5-93-2

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

Bangladesh 385/8   Shafiul Islam 51* (47b 11x4)   JC Tredwell 30.3-5-97-2

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

Bangladesh 393/9   Rubel Hossain 4* (5b 1x4)   ST Finn 7.5-2-49-1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, someone with a laptop in the England dressing room should do a fancy calculation to work out how many runs have gone through third man. Or they could trust their eyes. Whatever really. Naeem angles this through to the third man region to bring up an excellent fifty, really fighting hard

Bangladesh 397/9   Naeem Islam 50* (150b 6x4)   TT Bresnan 17.5-6-49-2

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

Bangladesh 401/9   Rubel Hossain 8* (9b 2x4)   ST Finn 8.3-2-53-1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, well, having finally decided to post a third man, there was a rather cunning plan to remove it, Naeem duly angled it away for four straight where the man would/should have been. Top stuff from him

Bangladesh 405/9   Naeem Islam 54* (157b 7x4)   TT Bresnan 19-6-53-2

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

Bangladesh 409/9   Rubel Hossain 12* (15b 3x4)   ST Finn 9.3-2-57-1

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)   ST Finn 10-2-61-1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, FOUR, with two balls left, Cook adjusts the field, removing the third man, Naeem is thinking a little quicker, or at least the edge of his bat is, so it flies along the ground straight to where the fielder should have been again for another boundary

Bangladesh 417/9   Naeem Islam 58* (162b 8x4)   TT Bresnan 19.5-6-57-2
