View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c †Dhoni b I Sharma 55 96 67 7 0 82.08
19.5 Super catch by Dhoni, diving to his right. It was down the leg side, Tamim tickled it fine but Dhoni intercepted it. Not a wicket-taking delivery and Ishant looks rather sheepish. Acrobatic effort by his captain, though. Tamim falls after scoring his 7th ODI fifty 102/3
View dismissal Nazimuddin c Ojha b Singh 6 20 9 1 0 66.66
4.6 Caught at third man. Another short and climbing delivery outside off, Nazimuddin went for the upper cut but sent it straight to the debutant Ojha who pouches it safely 19/1
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful* c Ojha b Gony 20 37 21 4 0 95.23
12.2 2nd catch for the debutant Ojha. This time at mid-off. Ashraful drove a full length delivery to left of Ojha but couldn't get the elevation that he wanted. Ashraful is livid with himself; bangs the bat on the ground before walking off. Nice little moment, though, for Gony; his first international wicket. 66/2
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan b Ojha 25 51 34 2 1 73.52
23.2 What a ripping turner. First international wicket. Lovely delivery. It drifted in to the middle and leg stump line, gripped the surface and spun sharply past the defensive poke to crash into the top of the off stump. 120/4
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c †Dhoni b Ojha 22 52 35 2 0 62.85
35.2 Ojha picks his second wicket. It turned slightly from short of length and Rahim saw the length and went for the cut but was done in there by the extra bounce. Dhoni takes a smart catch. 169/5
View dismissal Alok Kapali c Ojha b Gony 115 97 96 10 5 119.79
49.5 A stunning innings has come to an end by an equally stunning catch by Ojha at deep midwicket. Kapali had top edged a pull and Ojha rushing forward , dived with both palms outstretched and as the ball came down, the left hand slipped off the position but the right palm came under the ball. But the man of the moment is Alok Kapali. What an entertaining knock. 281/6

View dismissal G Gambhir c Mashrafe Mortaza b Farhad Reza 90 134 84 10 1 107.14
31.4 Finally, a catch has been taken. Mortaza, the fast bowler, swoops low at midwicket to hold it. Gambhir couldn't keep the on drive down and ended up chipping it. But it has been another potentially match-winning knock from the left-hander. 195/3
View dismissal RV Uthappa b Shahadat Hossain 2 13 11 0 0 18.18
3.2 Robin is cleaned up! Really full delivery, short of the blockhole, though, and Robin is struck on the crease, stabs it off the inner edge to the stumps. He ended up walking into it after he had played the drive; the feet were glued to each other when he played the shot. The fielders get in a huddle and jump up and down! 14/1
View dismissal RG Sharma c Farhad Reza b Shahadat Hossain 22 28 23 2 0 95.65
9.3 Shahadat takes out Rohit. Again the front leg movement got him into trouble. He pressed it too far across, had to bring his bat around the front pad, and hence, was in not great balance while trying to flick it and couldn't keep the ball down. Caught at midwicket. Bangladesh are on the ascent here. 56/2
