View dismissal V Sehwag b Mashrafe Mortaza 2 12 6 0 0 33.33
2.1 Gone! Mortaza nails Sehwag! Sehwag's disastrous recent run continues. Perfect offcutter that landed outside off stump, on a good length and cut back in. Sehwag's eyes lit up at what he perceived as width and shaped to cut it. The ball jagged back in, took the inside-edge and crashed into the furniture. Bangladesh taste first blood. 6/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa c Aftab Ahmed b Mashrafe Mortaza 9 22 17 1 0 52.94
6.4 Mortaza you beauty! Removes Uthappa now. Full in length and outside off stump, shapes away a touch and Uthappa is sucked into a fatal drive. He drives at it, bat away from the body, and the ball goes off the edge straight to Aftab Ahmed at point. Bangladesh fielders erupt in joy and why not. India two down and struggling. 21/2

His bat comes down outside the line and he gets an inside-edge on to the top of the bat and it pops up to the 'keeper. Bangladesh are having a ball out there. Super stuff from them. 40/3

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c †Dhoni b Patel 51 55 53 7 2 96.22
13.2 Iqbal falls. Fatal poke outside off stump. But what an innings it has been. The guy has exploded into public imagination and how. A lovely probing delivery in the channel and Iqbal pokes at it and nicks it behind. 69/2
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees lbw b Khan 2 16 8 0 0 25.00
4.2 Zaheer takes out Nafees. Lands outside off stump, cuts back in but Nafees shoulders arms. To his horror the ball bends back in to hit him in front of offstump. Would have taken out the top of the off stump. It struck him just outsisde off but there was no shot offered and hence he was given out. This game is going to be a thriller. 24/1

View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan st †Dhoni b Sehwag 53 94 86 5 1 61.62
38.4 Hasan is stumped. He goes down the track but is beaten in flight and by the spin. The ball brushes the back pad and rolls to Dhoni who whips the bails off in a flash. Only 29 runs to go for Bangladesh. 163/4

42.2 stumped! Bashar gives Sehwag the charge looking to hit over the infield because mid-on was in the circle, he misses and Dhoni whips off the bails in a flash, too little and too late for India 175/5
