0.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Kieswetter, OUT, Mashrafe strikes! Kieswetter falls again, Kieswetter bowled again! Massive start for Bangladesh! It was full and nipping back, Kieswetter as usual staying leg side of the ball an it got an inside edge and flew through a gaping space between bat and pad on to the stumps!

C Kieswetter b Mashrafe Mortaza 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

0.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, no run, ooh, good first ball at him, Trott defended by playing across the ball a fraction, it pitched and left him and skewed off a leading edge

0.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, no run, Mashrafe ends an excellent over, Trott is forward and defending a touch uneasily. Great lengths from Mashrafe - full - it's the example the other quicks have to follow

England 1/1   Mashrafe Mortaza 1-0-1-1
2.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, no run, ooooh! Very close here, Mashrafe going much fuller than Shafiul, Strauss aims a defensive block and it finds a genuine outside edge but lands short of first slip

2.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, SIX, shot! That is not the place to bowl, not to Strauss, not a green top. It was very short and Strauss rocked back and slapped it over midwicket for six

2.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, no run, that's better from Mashrafe, much better, fuller and it jags away off the pitch

4.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, no run, much better from Mashrafe, that's all Bangladesh need to do, fullish and on a good line, bit of nibble off the surface and blocked

4.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, no run, Strauss looks in good order, defending with the straightest of blades

4.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, 1 run, a fraction short, which is pretty criminal on this surface, allows Strauss to drive off the back foot where a sprawling save at point keeps it to one

4.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, no run, that's why these Bangladesh seamers need to hold their nerve here, decent length and it nips back a long way off the surface into Trott's pads

4.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, no run, the final ball again comes back a long way at Trott, and he can't connect with an attempted leg-side nurdle

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, no run, Mashrafe continues he good work and Trott can only defend

12.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, 1 run, just short of a length, outside off but Trott hops back and whips across the line to pick up a single to straight midwicket. The line was ok, but Trott was able to nudge it away on length

14.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, 1 run, edged! Great bowling, he gets one to spit up off a length and jag away to take a thick edge. The ball drops just short and slightly wide of the solitary man at slip. It wasn't a chance, but that was mighty close! Well played by Trott too, soft hands

14.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, no run, on a length, zeroing in on off stump and Strauss defends

14.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, 1 run, too short, Mashrafe doesn't have the pace to bowl like that anymore. Strauss slams a pull out to deep square leg, but there's a fielder out on the boundary to cut it off

14.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, no run, taken from outside off and whipped across the line, but straight to the midwicket fielder. He's played that shot a lot today

40.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Trott, OUT, good catch! Trott falls but it's been a fantastic knock, England were nervy when he came to the crease at 1 for 1, but he leaves them in utter control.

40.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Wright, OUT, oh dear! Bad luck for Wright he's sacrificed himself. Skipped outside leg stump and he had a fearful slash at it, only managed to feather a top edge through to the keeper. Unlucky for him and Mashrafe suddenly has two in two!
