View dismissal JJ Cobb c Nazmul Hossain Milon b Sohag Gazi 29 28 23 1 2 126.08
7.3 finally Cobb runs out of luck. He skips down the track and looks to chip it, doesn't time it well as the ball is caught at wide long-on 49/3
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful c Stirling b Benn 14 13 10 2 0 140.00
3.5 and this is the reason why Ashraful frustrates most of us. He looks to carry on being aggressive and looks to sweep. The ball turns and all he manages is an outside edge to short third-man 33/1

5.2 from Benn, comes forward and pushes it to the leg side. He wants a non-existent single and is run-out at the bowler's end 41/2

1.3 from Thomas, comes forward and pushes it to cover. While trying to turn back, Smith slips and gives up running back to the crease. Ashraful throws it back to the keeper and celebrates. Whether it was warranted or not is a debate for another day. we have a game to finish 12/1
View dismissal PR Stirling b Mashrafe Mortaza 1 11 4 0 0 25.00
2.1 and now Mashrafe celebrates and deservedly so. Stirling looks to slog and misses the line of the delivery completely. The ball takes out the middle stump 14/2
View dismissal Mominul Haque c Mohammad Ashraful b Thomas 1 10 4 0 0 25.00
3.2 fuller ball on the leg stump and Sylhet are falling down into a pit that can't quite climb out of. Mominul flicks it straight into the hands of Ashraful at deep midwicket. The opening bowling pair is doing the trick for Dhaka Gladiators 14/3
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim*† st †Anamul Haque b Saqlain Sajib 41 62 37 5 0 110.81
15.5 beats him with the turn this time! Rahim comes down the track and misses the delivery altogether as he is beaten by the flight and the turn. His struggle in the middle comes to an end 97/7
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi run out (Shakib Al Hasan) 2 8 5 0 0 40.00
5.1 from Shakib Al Hasan, this match has disaster written all over it for Sylhet. Shakib pushes one fast outside the off stump. Nabi turns it to leg side or so he thinks as he sets off for a quick single. Shakib runs across, fields and throws it back to the keeper; all in a matter of a few seconds. The problem here was Rahim turning his back to the batsman 19/4
View dismissal Nazmul Hossain Milon run out (sub [Raqibul Hasan]) 11 13 7 1 0 157.14
8.1 Saqlain Sajib to Mushfiqur Rahim, fuller ball on the off stump. Rahim looks to push it on the leg side and at the last moment changes his mind and pushes to point. He sets for a non-existent single. Nazmul Hussain is out by at least a couple of feet. Royals need a couple of batsmen who will stay at the wicket till the end. They can't afford to lose so many wickets 47/5
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Thomas b Saqlain Sajib 25 31 30 2 1 83.33
15.3 fuller ball outside the off stump. Chigumbura holes out to Thomas at long-off. That dismissal leaves Rahim with a lot to do in this game 96/6
View dismissal Sohag Gazi b Thomas 5 11 9 0 0 55.55
17.5 slower ball on the off stump. Gazi looks to slog it and is beaten by the lack of pace on the delivery. The ball hits the off stump 110/8
