A compilation of the important discussions from Match Point on the third day of the first Test between India and West Indies in Kolkata
- Video & Audio : The Mohammed Shami Story
61.1 N Wagner to Mehedi Hasan Miraz, out, error in judgement from the batsman. It was a short of a length ball that was angling across. Mehedi expects it to shape away outside off and lifts his bat. But the ball, to his horror, straightens and takes out off stump. Mehedi cannot believe his luck | Jan 20, 2017
58.1 TG Southee to Nazmul Hossain Shanto, out, a loose shot brings about his downfall. It was short and rising on him, coming into him also so he is a bit hurried and does not quite react well to it. Tries to open his bat face and guide it. Fails to keep it down and sends it straight into the hands of short backward point | Jan 20, 2017
Soumya Sarkar made the most of his first Test as an opener for Bangladesh, hitting 86 runs from 104 balls against New Zealand in Christchurch | Jan 20, 2017
38.3 TG Southee to Shakib Al Hasan, out, some noise there as Shakib tries to flick it and the ball goes to the wicketkeeper. There was a definite noise and the umpire Paul Reiffel is unmoved. They think of going upstairs but Shakib is walking off, so they do not have to ask for the review. That was back of a length and sliding down leg. No real reason to be playing at that. It was so much a one-day shot to be playing and he pays the price. Bangladesh sliding dramatically here | Jan 20, 2017
37.5 TA Boult to Sabbir Rahman, out, squared up by a short ball. It's well-directed, bang on the stumps and he is forced to play at it. Jumps up to try and ride the bounce but is in an awkward position and fails to keep it down as he gets a glove to slip | Jan 20, 2017
35.5 TA Boult to Soumya Sarkar, out, a drive on the up is held at short cover. Boult finally has reward after getting the ball to do a lot on a flat deck. This one stops on the pitch and seams away late from the fuller length. Sarkar is forward and does not control the push, uppishly sends it in the direction of short cover where de Grandhomme dives forward to snaffle it. And Sarkar's rather chancy innings has come to an end | Jan 20, 2017
33.4 TA Boult to Shakib Al Hasan, 4 runs, short and wide, Shakib gets up to meet the bounce and slaps it uppishly. Superb upper cut over the square third man region and that brings up his fifty | Jan 20, 2017
| Jan 20, 2017
21.5 C de Grandhomme to Soumya Sarkar, 4 runs, fuller and angling in, caresses it off the front foot through mid-on. Beautiful on-drive, went right along the carpet as he get right on top of that. Brings up his fifty with that glorious shot | Jan 19, 2017
