both batsmen actually ended up at the striker's end, NZ then went for the double play but they fluffed the run out and that's that for the Bangladeshi innings a bit of confusion over whether there's a 10 minute or if lunch is being taken. I guess we just have to wait and see a 10 minute break that is more than 30 mins before the scheduled lunch, therefore we should be continuing\ and here they are about 28 minutes of play until the lunch break
