View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Morkel b Harris 82 126 98 9 1 83.67
34.4 Tamim holes out to long-on. Valiant knock comes to an end. He charged out to Harris and heaved straight to the fielder. Out for 82. Well played but perhaps, he could have carried on. Wrong time to get out. 131/5
View dismissal Junaid Siddique c Harris b Langeveldt 6 29 24 0 0 25.00
7.4 First wicket is down. Siddique is back in the hut. Banged in short and he top-edged a pull to Harris, who ran forward from mid-on to take a comfortable catch. 30/1
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees c †de Villiers b Nel 12 27 19 2 0 63.15
13.4 100th ODI wicket for Nel. Fullish, outside off stump, moving away and Nafees goes back and across and tries to cut - not the length for it - and edges it behind. Nel is ecstatic and his team-mates rush to congratulate him. 53/2
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful* lbw b Morkel 8 32 24 1 0 33.33
20.5 trapped by a yorker. Full and on the middle and leg stump line, swung in late to evade the drive. Ash reckons it would have missed the leg stump but Umpire Enamul believes it would have crashed into the leg stump as the batsman had not taken a great forward stride. 79/3
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c Gibbs b Harris 6 19 11 0 0 54.54
24.1 caught at midwicket. The pitch is getting increasingly slower and stroke play is getting difficult. He came down the track, trying to drive to long-on but couldn't reach the pitch of the delivery that stopped on him a touch and sent it straight to the fielder. 89/4
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan c Botha b Langeveldt 15 53 42 0 0 35.71
37.4 what a soft dismissal. Driven straight to mid-off. Full in length, outside off stump, he stretched forward and drove straight to the fielder. 138/6
Dhiman Ghosh not out 15 61 32 0 0 46.87
View dismissal Mosharraf Hossain lbw b Botha 8 24 24 0 0 33.33
43.4 trapped in front. Quicker one from round the stumps and he was caught dead plumb in front. The bat was held behind the pad and Hossain's misery ends. 154/7
View dismissal Abdur Razzak c Smith b Nel 15 12 12 0 1 125.00
46.5 low full toss, swiped low to covers where Smith takes it. The batsman thinks it might have bounced, the two umpires confer and he is given out. They don't refer it to third umpire. Smith claimed the catch. Replays don't confirm or deny it. Akhtar Ali Khan, on air, believes it bounced. I will wait for another replay to confirm his doubt. 175/8
View dismissal Shahadat Hossain lbw b Nel 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
46.6 yorker fetches him another wicket. It crashed into the front boot in front of leg and middle. The umpire Enamul reckons it would have clipped the leg. Hmm.. 176/9
View dismissal Syed Rasel c †de Villiers b Morkel 0 6 6 0 0 0.00
48.2 the outside edge is taken and Bangladesh restricted for 178. Full in length, angling away and he tried to drive on the up and is gone. 178/10
