View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c H Masakadza b Sikandar Raza 109 252 171 14 1 63.74
63.5 54.1 mph, there it is for Zimbabwe! A miscue from Tamim finally goes into the vicinity of a fielder and Hami M flings himself to his left and claims a brilliant catch. Could reach the pitch despite rushing down at the part-timer, yet he wanted to whack him. Poor choice of stroke to end an innings that has put Bangladesh in the driver's seat 224/1
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c sub (V Sibanda) b H Masakadza 130 314 257 12 2 50.58
78.6 67.9 mph, you little beauty! He seems to have this happy knack of proving Zimbabwe the wicket they need desperately. Kayes lined up a length ball that was slid across him and flashed hard. Not quite hard enough though as the outside edge flies to gully where the substitute fielder Vusi Sibanda takes it 272/2
View dismissal Mominul Haque c Taylor b Panyangara 48 132 100 3 0 48.00
94.6 79.0 mph, he's gone! Panyangara has claimed an outside edge and the two-man strong slip cordon is awake enough to snaffle it! That's a beauty, squared him up as he went wide of the crease and angled a back of a good length delivery across the left-hander. Mominul was prodding forward to block and can only nick it off. Too good for him 312/3
View dismissal Mahmudullah lbw b SW Masakadza 16 102 68 1 0 23.52
102.3 79.9 mph, the indipper has worked! With a little help from the ball keeping a touch low. Mahmudullah was caught in the crease by the pronounced movement there and he was bringing his bat down from gully, across the line of the delivery. Struck well below the knee-roll and that would have clattered into leg stump 339/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c Ervine b Sikandar Raza 71 145 110 7 0 64.54
130.5 55.8 mph, taken! Erivine take a bow! So too should Raza as he beat Shakib in flight. Swings his bat in pure disgust as he walks off. He had charged down at the part-time spinner and looked to swipe at him against the turn. Gets a leading edge that loops up towards cover where Craig Ervine has to leap to his right and cling on to a pretty tough chance. 428/6
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim*† b H Masakadza 15 57 36 1 0 41.66
115.6 66.0 mph, he does it again! Give every over to Hami M, please! Explots a bit of gap between bat and pad as he is stuck in the crease against a back of a length delivery. Gets a little hard done by the lack of bounce on it and inside edges onto the stumps. Huge blow from Zimbabwe 378/5
View dismissal Shuvagata Hom run out (SW Masakadza/†Mutumbami) 35 107 65 3 0 53.84
140.1 from M'shangwe, resorts to targeting the leg stump to the right-hander now, who goes for a lap sweep. Taylor follows it from slip but realises it has gone too far so fine leg rushes in, fumbles a bit and wait, has that caused a wicket here? It seems so. They batsmen got greedy and wanted a second run. Shuvagata stretches as far as he could, but he is a couple of inches short 452/9
View dismissal Taijul Islam c †Mutumbami b SW Masakadza 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
131.4 78.3 mph, that's a beaut! This is a different Zimbabwe out there. Masakadza gets a back of a length delivery to jerk away from the bat, kiss the outside edge and fit snugly into the keeper's gloves. Too good for a tailender, especially one who is early in the innings and his footwork had taken an untimely vacation 429/7
View dismissal Shafiul Islam c Ervine b Sikandar Raza 10 39 27 2 0 37.03
139.4 48.9 mph, slog across the line heads straight to short midiwicket! Saw the ball with a little bit of air and couldn't hold himself back, even with a proper batsman at the other end. Ugly shot, irresponsible dismissal. Looks like Shuvagata needs to start farming the strike now 451/8

View dismissal Sikandar Raza c Mahmudullah b Jubair Hossain 82 182 111 10 0 73.87
46.3 46.6 mph, turn, bounce, edge, taken! Jubair has struck twice in the over and Raza, another set batsman departs! Why would he want to play a shot like that. It wasn't full, so he had enough time to gauge the spin which was taking the ball well outside off. Yet he pokes, tries to pull his bat back but not before the outside edge is taken and slip gobbles it up 172/4
View dismissal BB Chari c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Rubel Hossain 0 12 6 0 0 0.00
1.6 84.7 mph, is that a nick? Aleem Dar says no and Mushfiqur Rahim takes it out of his hands and goes for a review. Hits a back of a length and Chari shuffles across to try and punch it through the covers. It's terribly tight to call, might just have been a feather. The third ump asks for a ton of replays, straight on angles, the one from behind the batsman, the side-on one and finally.... it's red! There was an edge, Chari has to walk off! Chittagong roars! 9/1
View dismissal H Masakadza lbw b Shafiul Islam 81 155 151 9 1 53.64
43.4 84.3 mph, beaten again, and this time he's struck on the pads in front of the stumps! Skidder from Shafiul does the job. Hami M discusses with his partner, nods and then walks off. Top class delivery as he pitches on a good length and jags the ball back in sharply enough to force Masakadza to play across the line to try and get some back involved. Once he didn't he was down. 169/2
View dismissal BRM Taylor* c Taijul Islam b Jubair Hossain 1 10 12 0 0 8.33
46.1 45.1 mph, buh-bye! Jubair has struck with the most teasing legspinner you will see! Taylor could not hold himself back as that ball looped over his eye-line, went for an expansive drive looking to top mid-off but the ball turns before he reaches it and soars high off the outside half of his blade. Taijul races to his left from mid-off, head thrust up to the sky and concentrating hard until the ball came down and fit in his hands 172/3
View dismissal RW Chakabva lbw b Shafiul Islam 65 153 136 7 0 47.79
86.5 80.2 mph, huge shout, and the umpire agrees! It was fuller with just enough movement to trick the batsman, who was trying to defend outside the line. That giant backlift doesn't help against a skiddy bowler. Hits him on the back pad and he looks quite adjacent. Checks with his partner if he needs to go for the review. He says no and off he walks 322/6
View dismissal CR Ervine b Jubair Hossain 14 48 23 2 0 60.86
58.1 50.9 mph, oh dear! He has missed a full toss and looks back to watch his stumps knocked back! He was looking to help it away to the fine leg boundary, but had strode too far across and the ball just dipped enough to sneak under his batswing and crash into leg stump. Stayed way too upright, and Jubair has a wry smile and that tells you what he thought of that ball 209/5
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Imrul Kayes b Jubair Hossain 88 174 130 6 2 67.69
103.2 46.0 mph, no century for Chigumbura as a lazy drive presents the outside edge to slip! A beautiful legspinner from Jubair again as he teases the batsman into pushing away from his body, claims the outside edge with the turn he gets from the pitch. It's not much, but it's that annoying (at least for Chiggy) little bit that is enough to claim the edge and carry to slip. Solid innings. 360/9
View dismissal R Mutumbami lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 20 48 35 3 0 57.14
98.2 47.3 mph, he's given out leg before! Zimbabwe have gone for a review though. It was a short ball, but it was tons slower than the batsman realised. He goes for a pull and is soundly beaten. Gets hit on the thigh pad. Might be umpire's call on the height here. Oh, this pitch doesn't have as much bounce as I thought. All three reds flash and Mutumbami has to walk 356/7
View dismissal SW Masakadza c Mahmudullah b Taijul Islam 0 4 6 0 0 0.00
99.3 51.9 mph, not the best time to go for a glorious drive on the up! He has nailed the drive, but has forgotten about the placement. Picks out short cover like a laser pointer had been positioned in his hands. Slumps over his bat in chagrin 357/8

56.3 75.7 mph, good length ball outside off, Mahmudullah pokes tamely but the ball has straightened. Zimbabwe think there was an edge, Panyangara is so certain that he almost bullies his captain into a review after the umpire gives it not out. There seems to be a noise as the ball went past the bat, Mahmudullah looked back immediately whilst he was drawing his lazy bat back inside his pads.

30.3 47.6 mph, violeng swipe as was merited against a full toss, but he has picked out deep midwicket with precision! He would not be swayed from attacking this morning, but if that was his intent he really should put away a delivery like that. 116/3

1.5 85.3 mph, goooone! He's bagged a pair and Bangladesh have their early wicket! Rubel fires it full and angles it in at the batsman. He seems to be beaten for pace and was flicking across the line. He wasn't too far forward, struck quite low on middle nad leg. The umpire reckons that will cannon into leg stump. Chari takes a loooong time to check with his partner and by the time he goes for a review, the ump says the 15-second leeway is up, on your way, mate. And to make matters worse, HawkEye reveals that would be missing the stumps 4/1

26.3 47.9 mph, that's the one they wanted, at least judging from the screams the stump mic can pick up! It was a lot slower through the air as he tries to lure the batsman to play away from the body outside off. Hami opts for a reverse sweep, doesn't get low enough, doesn't get to the pitch and ends up getting a glove that lobs up into the keeper's hands for the simplest of catches 97/2
View dismissal BRM Taylor* c Shakib Al Hasan b Jubair Hossain 24 66 59 2 0 40.67
46.5 50.3 mph, there's another biggie! Jubair has duped Taylor into playing an airy drive once again and the outside edge loops to point. Too early to say bunny, but this was a wonderful bit of bowling from a legspinner. Enticed the batsman by looping the ball above his eyeline and giving him enough width to think it was a bad ball, but then it dipped, turned and became too much 165/4

52.3 49.5 mph, that's a top catch, is it?! Chiggy has a forlorn look back at the umpire, who moves over to his partner at square leg and then goes upstairs to check. This was a googly that rips in at Chiggy who was looking to cut the ball as hard as he can. Think he didn't pick the variation and the outside edge seems to have been snapped up by Kayes at first slip. The question is has he got his fingers wrapped under the ball, so that no part of it touches the grass? Tough job on the third umpire and he says yes, that carried. Fourth wicket of the morning for Bangladesh 179/5

65.4 50.3 mph, up comes the dreaded finger, Ervine walks up to his partner and then goes for a review against his leg before decision. Gorgeous delivery as it rips away past the outside edge to hit his back pad. This looks very adjacent. I thought it would be three reds, it is umpire's call on clipping the off bail and that means the Mahmudullah move has worked 228/6

70.3 47.9 mph, he's got him! That looked to be heading onto leg stump, and his partner at the other end says as much. Mutumbami is out lbw. It was the slider from Taijul, hit a good length to draw the batsman forward and defend outside the line. Didn't pick it and perishes 237/7

83.1 84.5 mph, gets a wicket off his first ball! Panyangara walks up to check with his partner, but is advised not to go for a review. It was full and tailing in. Hit him very low on the front pad and his bat was still hidden behind it. Too quick for the tailender and he has to walk back 261/8

84.4 81.0 mph, off stump has been knocked back! Only one more man is left standing for Zimbabwe! This was a beautiful delivery from Shafiul, pitched it up but confused the batsman as to whether he wanted to go forward or back. Shingi was stuck in his crease and pushed tamely at it. The ball straightens, clips his back pad and canons into the stumps 262/9

84.6 84.0 mph, that's it! Bangladesh are going out of their minds celebrating a historic 3-0 victory, but they have to calm down for a bit. The batsman has gone for a review. The umpire has called it out. This ball had hit a good length and sneaked in to hit him on the front pad. It is umpire's call on clipping the leg stump and Chittagong lets out a blood-curdling roar! So do the Bangladesh players. Two of them had to be pushed away by Dar so he could signal it out. Stumps and pulled out, handshakes shared, hugs given. It's been the performance the entire country has been waiting for 262/10

1.5 to Chari, 85.3 mph, goooone! He's bagged a pair and Bangladesh have their early wicket! Rubel fires it full and angles it in at the batsman. He seems to be beaten for pace and was flicking across the line. He wasn't too far forward, struck quite low on middle nad leg. The umpire reckons that will cannon into leg stump. Chari takes a loooong time to check with his partner and by the time he goes for a review, the ump says the 15-second leeway is up, on your way, mate. And to make matters worse, HawkEye reveals that would be missing the stumps 4/1
83.1 to Panyangara, 84.5 mph, gets a wicket off his first ball! Panyangara walks up to check with his partner, but is advised not to go for a review. It was full and tailing in. Hit him very low on the front pad and his bat was still hidden behind it. Too quick for the tailender and he has to walk back 261/8

70.3 to Mutumbami, 47.9 mph, he's got him! That looked to be heading onto leg stump, and his partner at the other end says as much. Mutumbami is out lbw. It was the slider from Taijul, hit a good length to draw the batsman forward and defend outside the line. Didn't pick it and perishes 237/7

46.5 to Taylor, 50.3 mph, there's another biggie! Jubair has duped Taylor into playing an airy drive once again and the outside edge loops to point. Too early to say bunny, but this was a wonderful bit of bowling from a legspinner. Enticed the batsman by looping the ball above his eyeline and giving him enough width to think it was a bad ball, but then it dipped, turned and became too much 165/4
52.3 to Chigumbura, 49.5 mph, that's a top catch, is it?! Chiggy has a forlorn look back at the umpire, who moves over to his partner at square leg and then goes upstairs to check. This was a googly that rips in at Chiggy who was looking to cut the ball as hard as he can. Think he didn't pick the variation and the outside edge seems to have been snapped up by Kayes at first slip. The question is has he got his fingers wrapped under the ball, so that no part of it touches the grass? Tough job on the third umpire and he says yes, that carried. Fourth wicket of the morning for Bangladesh 179/5

26.3 to H Masakadza, 47.9 mph, that's the one they wanted, at least judging from the screams the stump mic can pick up! It was a lot slower through the air as he tries to lure the batsman to play away from the body outside off. Hami opts for a reverse sweep, doesn't get low enough, doesn't get to the pitch and ends up getting a glove that lobs up into the keeper's hands for the simplest of catches 97/2
30.3 to Sikandar Raza, 47.6 mph, violeng swipe as was merited against a full toss, but he has picked out deep midwicket with precision! He would not be swayed from attacking this morning, but if that was his intent he really should put away a delivery like that. 116/3
View wicket Mahmudullah 4 1 4 1 1.00 20 0 0
65.4 to Ervine, 50.3 mph, up comes the dreaded finger, Ervine walks up to his partner and then goes for a review against his leg before decision. Gorgeous delivery as it rips away past the outside edge to hit his back pad. This looks very adjacent. I thought it would be three reds, it is umpire's call on clipping the off bail and that means the Mahmudullah move has worked 228/6
