150.1

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, no run, ouch! Dhoni makes room and hammers a fullish delivery straight back down the track and its cops the umpire on the shin even as he hops up to evade it

150.3

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, FOUR, width offered and he creams one through cover and point

151.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, 1 leg bye, tucked away behind square for a quick single

151.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dhoni, FOUR, pulled away imposingly to square leg for a rasping four, one bounce for a crashing boundary there

151.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dhoni, no run, short of a length outside off, on the back foot and cut away to cover, bunted with force but can't get the timing

151.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dhoni, 1 run, full toss and Dhoni bunts it to extra cover for a single

151.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, 1 bye, short ball and jags back in alarmingly after passing the batsman, Tendulkar weaves out of the way but the keeper can't reach it and they complete a single . Shakib-ul-Hasan is the keeper now.

151.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Dhoni, no run, short of a length, tapped to the off side and they think of a single but don't take the risk

End of over 152 (7 runs) India 594/3
MS Dhoni    41* (46b 2x4 3x6)      Mashrafe Mortaza    31.4-4-100-1
SR Tendulkar    117* (224b 7x4 1x6)      Mohammad Sharif    24.4-2-93-0

152.1

Mohammad Sharif to Tendulkar, FOUR, cutely done, angling down the leg side and Tendulkar shimmies down the track and flicks it away delectably for a four to square leg, third man can't get to it

152.2

Mohammad Sharif to Tendulkar, 1 run, full ball on off, tapped to the off side for a quick single

152.3

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, FOUR, that's simply destructive, full ball on middle, backs away and blasts a ferocious slap past the bowler

152.4

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, no run, low full toss and Dhoni bunts it to midwicket for a brace

152.5

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, 1 wide, wide of the stumps and Dhoni can't reach it even if given two bats

152.5

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, no run, wide again, full and outside off but it's not called this time. Dhoni can't reach this time too

152.6

Mohammad Sharif to Dhoni, SIX, smashed over extra cover for a six, the fielder has a chance to catch but he's not able to latch on and pushes it over the ropes. Dhoni brings up his fifty in style

And Rahul Dravid has done it. Raised his hands and signalled to the batsmen to come back. Declaration time and Dhoni begins the walk back. India end on an imposing 610 for 3 with the top four batsmen reaching centuries for the first time in Test history. Testing times for Bangladesh now.
