Botha to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, another quicker one, but slipping down leg and is turned past square leg for a single

Bangladesh 155/7   Abdur Razzak 1* (1b)

44.1

Harris to Abdur Razzak, no run, turns in sharply from well outside off, stabbed to the on side

44.2

Harris to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, on the off stump line, swept to long leg for a single

44.4

Harris to Abdur Razzak, 2 runs, dropped by Harris. It was hit hard at him and just went through his palms.

44.5

Harris to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, deploys the sweep shot and gets a single down to deep midwicket

Bangladesh 160/7   Abdur Razzak 5* (5b)

45.2

Botha to Abdur Razzak, no run, full, outside off, tries to loft it but can only send it along the ground back to the bowler

45.3

Botha to Abdur Razzak, SIX, Maximum. He went down on his knee, got under the ball and swung it cleanly over long-on

46.2

Nel to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, on a length, driven to covers

46.4

Nel to Abdur Razzak, no run, slower one, swing and a miss

46.5

Nel to Abdur Razzak, OUT, 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.

Abdur Razzak c Smith b Nel 15 (12m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 125.00

Bangladesh 175/8   Abdur Razzak 15 (12b 1x6)
