View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Taijul Islam b Shafiul Islam 63 214 150 5 0 42.00
49.5 80.6 mph, short, wide, and that was an absolutely rubbish delivery, but those often get you wickets, and Brathwaite reached for this, didn't get over the bounce, and scooped a simple catch to the man at point 143/1
View dismissal LR Johnson lbw b Taijul Islam 66 227 162 5 1 40.74
52.6 51.6 mph, he gestures to review this after consulting Edwards, and the umpire says he's taken too long, and I think that's a good thing for West Indies, because this looked out. It turned in sharply from outside off as he plonked his front foot halfway forward. It beat his inside edge and hit his front pad on the line of off stump, I think. The umpire's finger went up straight away. Ah. Here are the replays. Whoa. Hawkeye says it hit him in line with middle and was turning down leg! 145/2
View dismissal KA Edwards c Shamsur Rahman b Mahmudullah 16 64 52 2 0 30.76
66.1 50.4 mph, and out of the blue Bangladesh manage to pluck another one as Edwards hits this tossed up delivery outside off from Mahmudullah, straight to the man at cover, who dives slightly forward to take the catch. Edwards walks off dismayed, and the locals give out a cheer as Shivnarine Chanderpaul heads to the middle 185/3
View dismissal DM Bravo c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Robiul Islam 46 190 123 4 2 37.39
97.5 79.4 mph, Bangladesh may have just unearthed their first wicket this morning as Bravo, whose patience is being severely tested, goes after a full delivery outside off, with the ball appearing to get a top edge on the way to the keeper. The umpire gives this one out but Bravo asks for the review straightaway. Replays show that there is indeed a big nick off the bat as the ball travels through to Mushfiqur. And the on-field umpire confirms the decision to send Lara 2.0 back to the shed 251/4
S Chanderpaul not out 84 268 198 8 0 42.42
View dismissal J Blackwood c Anamul Haque b Al-Amin Hossain 8 15 9 2 0 88.88
100.5 80.5 mph, and Al-Amin responds to the previous indiscretion with a beauty of a ball which finds the outside edge of Blackwood's bat as this flies high to Anamul Haque at slip, who takes it safely. Just what the doctor ordered as far as Bangladesh are concerned. Blackwood will be furious with himself as he trudges back to the pavilion 268/5
View dismissal D Ramdin*† c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Al-Amin Hossain 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
100.6 81.2 mph, Al-Amin is on a roll! Ramdin didn't even get a chance to settle as the pacers draw the right-hander forward with a back of a length ball which catches the outside edge as Mushfiqur accepts the chance gleefully. Bangladesh are over the moon as they celebrate out in the middle, as Ramdin could have proven a major thorn in the side for the visitors 268/6
View dismissal KAJ Roach c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shafiul Islam 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
101.3 79.1 mph, and there's another! It's the full, wide tempter that just shapes away as Roach drives away from his body, and the edge goes through at a nice waist height to Mushfiqur 269/7
View dismissal JE Taylor c Mahmudullah b Taijul Islam 40 41 32 5 2 125.00
110.1 51.2 mph, aaaand they finally hold on to one. It's tossed up outside off, and he looks to clear the long-on fielder but can only hit it straight down his throat 323/8
View dismissal SJ Benn c Shafiul Islam b Al-Amin Hossain 25 54 19 3 1 131.57
122.5 81.1 mph, its a wonder how these rubbish deliveries get a wicket. Benn, enticed by the short ball on a leg-stump line, ends up hooking the fast bowler straight to deep fine leg, who takes the catch on the second chance after bobbling the initial take just in front of him. West Indies nine down, and Bangladesh look to wrap them up in a hurry 375/9
View dismissal ST Gabriel b Robiul Islam 4 7 3 1 0 133.33
123.6 78.9 mph, and Robiul cleans up Gabriel as Chanderpaul is left high and dry (remember the last Test anyone?) as he misses out on another century with yet another 80-odd score. Gabriel was woefully late on this length ball on off as he only brings down the bat just as the timber falls over 380/10

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c †Ramdin b Roach 48 118 75 6 0 64.00
24.4 84.4 mph, Roach is simply world-class as he is paid for his perseverence outside off, as Tamim, just two runs shy of a well-earned fifty, ends up chasing after this back of a length ball which tails away, pushing at it feebly before Ramdin completed the take 62/3
View dismissal Shamsur Rahman c †Ramdin b Roach 1 23 12 0 0 8.33
5.2 84.7 mph, and he's gone! It was sliding down the leg side, poor ball really, and Shamsur looked to flick and only got a little tickle on it. Ramdin was already moving towards the leg side, and then he threw himself further in that direction to take the catch one-handed 14/1
View dismissal Anamul Haque c Bravo b Roach 9 63 39 0 0 23.07
18.3 84.6 mph, Roach earns a well-deserved reward but Anamul will be kicking himself in the manner in which he was dismissed. Bowls in that same fourth/fifth stump line outside off as Anamul, who was trying to withdraw the bat, ends up being a tad late as the ball hits the bottom of it to spoon a chance to the slip fielder, who was only too willing to grab at it 43/2
View dismissal Mominul Haque c Blackwood b Taylor 3 46 34 0 0 8.82
27.5 87.1 mph, what a catch that is! That was short, and he was looking to punch that square on the off side, with the angle, but it came back into him, and flew off his inside edge to the right of short leg, and Blackwood dived full-length and took a simply magnificent one-handed catch. He would have had no idea the ball was coming his way, considering where Mominul was looking to hit it, so to react that quickly was just unearthly 65/4
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim*† b Taylor 4 39 22 0 0 18.18
31.4 87.8 mph, timber! This one cuts in from outside off, and removes the off stump from its mooring after finding the gap between Mushfiqur's bat and pad. Lovely length, had him pinned to the crease to open up that gap 68/5
View dismissal Mahmudullah c †Ramdin b Benn 53 161 100 2 1 53.00
60.1 55.2 mph, oh dear, maybe Devashis has a better grasp of cricket than I do as Mahmudullah throws it away. Bangs his bat onto his glove as he nicks off to the keeper. It was a touch short from Benn, but his height makes it bounce a bit more and foil to cut shot. Good innings, but it ended too soon 154/9
View dismissal Nasir Hossain c †Ramdin b Roach 1 3 3 0 0 33.33
32.1 84.0 mph, and another. This one straightens just outside off, and Nasir pokes away from his body and nicks it through to the keeper. Roach now has four 69/6
View dismissal Taijul Islam c Gabriel b Roach 12 17 11 2 0 109.09
34.6 82.5 mph, they had a third man two-thirds of the way back, and Taijul has dumped this straight into his hands. Was always coming, considering the length Roach was bowling, and considering how uncomfortable he was looking against that length. Slashed at this, and it went straight to the man placed there for that very shot. Five wickets for Roach 89/7
View dismissal Shafiul Islam c †Ramdin b Gabriel 10 85 50 0 0 20.00
53.3 89.1 mph, Shafiul's vigil unfortunately comes to a close as West Indies finally get the breakthrough they were looking for this morning. This one catches the edge of Shafiul's bat as he looked to defend the line, with the ball travelling low to Ramdin, who has to complete a tumbling catch. West Indies just two wickets away now as they look to wrap up Bangladesh before they reach the follow-on score 134/8
View dismissal Robiul Islam lbw b Benn 0 45 21 0 0 0.00
62.3 61.3 mph, up comes the finger, but Robiul has decided to review the leg before decision. This was the change of pace, quicker and flatter and the batsman took it as a cue to sweep. Hit him in line with the stumps - he was in front of all three of them - but we can't quite be sure if there was a glove or not. Giant stride though. And on the side-on angle the silly point fielder is in the way. Conclusive evidence has been hard to come by in this series. And the umpire's decision was out, so if this was clipping leg, it will remain out. It's clattering into middle so there's no qualms over there. Robiul has to go back and that's the end of the innings 161/10

View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Shamsur Rahman b Mahmudullah 45 139 112 3 1 40.17
36.2 50.5 mph, beautiful flight this from Mahmudullah, real class from the spinner. Mananges to unearth the unshakeable Brathwaite from his crease with a delivery that draws the Barbadian forward, with the ball just deviating away to catch an outside edge and offer a chance to the first slip, who snaffles it without too much fuss 100/4
View dismissal LR Johnson b Taijul Islam 41 77 59 8 0 69.49
19.3 52.9 mph, he's yorked himself! He had charged the bowler but Taijul sneaked in a quicker one, got through Johnson's defences and knocks back the off stump. Mushfiqur has a charming smile on his face as he jogs to his bowler to celebrate. Useful strike, but West Indies' lead is nearly 300 76/1
View dismissal KA Edwards c Shamsur Rahman b Shafiul Islam 2 13 8 0 0 25.00
22.5 80.4 mph, oh, he's been beaten by the bounce! This short ball jumped up at Edwards to produce a very pleasing wicket for Shafiul. The batsman hung his bat out to dry outside his off stump and gully takes a sharp catch lunging forward. 81/2
View dismissal DM Bravo b Mahmudullah 7 37 29 1 0 24.13
34.2 52.1 mph, what a response from Mahmudullah as Bravo, after playing such a pretty shot down the ground, ends up inside-edging an attempt pull shot onto himself, before the ball ricochets onto the base of his stumps. It was the quicker one from the spinner, and Bravo kicks the dust as he trudges back to the pavilion 97/3

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Gabriel b Benn 64 226 181 2 1 35.35
58.5 57.1 mph, 180 balls of hard work undone! He has been defending them on instinct today, but his natural game sneaks in and he swipes at a flighted ball. The hit across the line fetches only a top edge and Shannon Gabriel takes a swirler. Brilliant innings from Tamim, not quite the end it deserved 158/3
View dismissal Shamsur Rahman c Edwards b Taylor 39 38 27 4 2 144.44
8.4 88.9 mph, one hook too much and this time Shamsur had no control! Credit to West Indies for cranking up the chin music. His instinct forced him to drag the ball from outside off, Taylor had got the ball to lift above the shoulder, forced Shamsur's top hand off the bat and had him looking all sorts of uncomfortable. Edwards on the edge of the boundary takes a simple catch 47/1
View dismissal Anamul Haque c †Ramdin b Benn 0 11 8 0 0 0.00
11.4 54.8 mph, huge excitement behind the stumps and the umpire relents. There was some turn, some bounce and Benn's accuracy makes the batsman push at it with hard hands an and open face. Ramdin, behind the stumps, rises with the ball and snaps up the outside edge 48/2
View dismissal Mominul Haque c Gabriel b Benn 56 184 139 5 0 40.28
60.1 forget the rest, just play with 11 Gabriels! This is a loopy full toss from Benn, the kind you wallop into the stands at cow corner. But Mominul has swiped it into the hands of midwicket where Gabriel clings to another one and is flattened as his team-mates fall on top of him. West Indies are on a roll here and as Ramdin has been chirping all day, one wicket brought three. 160/5
View dismissal Mahmudullah lbw b Gabriel 0 6 6 0 0 0.00
59.6 85.3 mph, he's having a good ol time after tea! Asks for a leg before appeal and is rewarded. But Mahmudullah wants a second look. This good length ball jags back quite sharply, beats the batsman for pace as he was looking to flick. The impact was over the knee-roll and the off stump was visible too. Could be sliding down, but even if it was clipping it will be given out because of that pesky umpire's call and that is what it ends up being. Not that marginal a decision in the end 160/4
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim*† b Taylor 11 70 54 1 0 20.37
76.1 85.2 mph, maybe we will need that extra half-hour after all? Taylor straightaway breaches the defence of Mushfiqur, who plays all around this short of a length delivery, reversing into the captain, as he looked to punch through the covers, leaving a gaping hole in which the ball swerved through to find the timber 188/8
View dismissal Nasir Hossain lbw b Benn 2 10 10 0 0 20.00
62.5 57.8 mph, no matter, says Benn as he sneaks in an arm ball which skids on and traps Nasir on the pads. Jumps back and flicks across the line. He's not quick enough to get his bat down and umpire Davis says that's adjacent. The review shows parts of middle and off stump, but he was far enough back in his crease for the ball to clip leg. Bangladesh are bleeding wickets here 167/6
View dismissal Taijul Islam c & b Benn 4 25 12 0 0 33.33
68.1 46.6 mph, how often have you seen this? straight away after the drinks break and a wicket falls as Benn gets a sixth five-wicket haul. He tosses one up on middle and off, with Taijul inexplicably slamming this back at the bowler, who takes a good return catch 173/7
View dismissal Shafiul Islam b Roach 14 37 24 2 0 58.33
77.4 86.3 mph, and he has bowled 'em! Roach takes his first wicket of the innings as he gets this one to nip in from back of a length, striking middle stump as Shafiul plays all around this on the back foot. 192/10

The hit across the line fetches only a top edge and Shannon Gabriel takes a swirler. Brilliant innings from Tamim, not quite the end it deserved 158/3
60.1 to Mominul Haque, forget the rest, just play with 11 Gabriels! This is a loopy full toss from Benn, the kind you wallop into the stands at cow corner. But Mominul has swiped it into the hands of midwicket where Gabriel clings to another one and is flattened as his team-mates fall on top of him. West Indies are on a roll here and as Ramdin has been chirping all day, one wicket brought three. 160/5
62.5 to Nasir Hossain, 57.8 mph, no matter, says Benn as he sneaks in an arm ball which skids on and traps Nasir on the pads. Jumps back and flicks across the line. He's not quick enough to get his bat down and umpire Davis says that's adjacent. The review shows parts of middle and off stump, but he was far enough back in his crease for the ball to clip leg. Bangladesh are bleeding wickets here 167/6
68.1 to Taijul Islam, 46.6 mph, how often have you seen this? straight away after the drinks break and a wicket falls as Benn gets a sixth five-wicket haul. He tosses one up on middle and off, with Taijul inexplicably slamming this back at the bowler, who takes a good return catch 173/7

59.6 to Mahmudullah, 85.3 mph, he's having a good ol time after tea! Asks for a leg before appeal and is rewarded. But Mahmudullah wants a second look. This good length ball jags back quite sharply, beats the batsman for pace as he was looking to flick. The impact was over the knee-roll and the off stump was visible too. Could be sliding down, but even if it was clipping it will be given out because of that pesky umpire's call and that is what it ends up being. Not that marginal a decision in the end 160/4
