View dismissal V Sehwag b Shakib Al Hasan 175 198 140 14 5 125.00
47.3 56.7 mph, end of an epic from Sehwag, he falls for the same legendary score that Kapil made on a 28 years ago, it was a fullish ball angling into Sehwag, he looked to carve it past point, gets a bottom edge onto the stump,s slight relief for Bangladesh, once again Sehwag can't play out 50 overs. doesn't matter, take a bow Sehwag. 355/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar run out (Shakib Al Hasan/†Mushfiqur Rahim) 28 46 29 4 0 96.55
10.5 from Abdur Razzak, a huge wicket for Bangladesh, Sachin Tendulkar is gone after an amateurish mix-up, Tendulkar tucked the ball towards wide mid-on, Shakib at midwicket dived and intercepted it, Tendulkar had sets off for the run immediately, Sehwag was ball watching and didn't respond to the Tendulkar, Tendulkar was also ball watching so both batsmen end up at the same end, Shakib throws the ball to the keeper, who takes off the bails and the crowd go bonkers 69/1
View dismissal G Gambhir b Mahmudullah 39 49 39 3 0 100.00
23.2 61.0 mph, soft dismissal, softer than a baby's bottom as they say! Gambhir gets a non-descript ball that lands back of a length on leg and middle, and straightens a touch. He looks to work it to the leg side, but was just a little loose in the execution. The ball sneaked through between bat and pad, to disturb the stumps. Mirpur finds its voice again. Interesting dismissal, it seemed to stay lower than Gambhir thought. In hidsight, he should have been on the front foot. 152/2

  Bangladesh innings (target: 371 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Yuvraj Singh b Patel 70 136 86 3 1 81.39
32.1 89.9 mph, and he strikes once more in his first over of the spell, this time off the first ball itself, Tamim looks to thrash a length ball towards the leg side, he makes good contact but the ball flies only as far as Yuvraj Singh, who takes a sharp, low catch at midwicket, end of Tamim's vigil, he wasn't at his best today, getting bogged down early on, but held up one end 188/3
View dismissal Imrul Kayes b Patel 34 33 29 7 0 117.24
6.5 77.1 mph, If you dropped a pin in Mirpur, you'd hear it in Dhaka. Kayes has played onto Munaf. Back of a length again from Munaf, that's his business area as he gets this to angle across from slightly wide of the crease. Kayes went for the cut, and was almost surprised by the drop in pace. In hindsight, he did not have the room for the cut. Inside edge and it crashes into the stumps. The crowd loses its voice. 56/1
View dismissal Junaid Siddique st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 37 66 52 1 1 71.15
23.1 43.6 mph, is that a stumping, third umpire is called off, Harbhajan gets the ball to ship away sharply from Junaid, who is beaten as he looks to play on the front foot, Dhoni is an exceptional stumper these days, he's whips off the bails in a jiffy and after several replays the third umpire sends Junaid on his way, much to the Mirpur crowd's disappointment, reward for Harbhajan who has bowled extremely well today 129/2
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* c Harbhajan Singh b Pathan 55 65 50 5 0 110.00
39.4 55.0 mph, Shakib falls. Mirpur is silenced once again. Harbhajan takes the catch and puts it in his pocket. Yusuf makes the only noise emanating from the ground - he roars. Slow delivery, tossed up invitingly on middle and leg, and given the circumstances, Shakib had to go for that. He got under it, but couldn't quite go all the way. Harbhajan set himself up a few yars in from deep midwicket and pouched it. Pocketed it, would be more appropriate 234/4
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c sub (SK Raina) b Khan 25 39 30 2 0 83.33
42.3 73.1 mph, Rahim goes. No repeat of the 2007 50 for him. Zaheer lands this slow and full outside off and Rahim again looks to hoist him over the covers. Raina, inside the circle, timed his jump perfectly to haul it back in. 248/5
Raqibul Hasan not out 28 44 28 0 1 100.00
View dismissal Mahmudullah b Patel 6 6 6 0 0 100.00
44.3 84.2 mph, Munaf has yorked him. Perfect delivery, if you can land it there, you don't need pace. Munaf doesn't have any pace. Almost no follow through after he delivered that. On the base of the stumps as Mahmudullah backs away and looks to first drive, and then steer, and finally squeeze through the off side. It is not there for any of those shots and pings leg stump. Gone 261/6
View dismissal Naeem Islam lbw b Patel 2 8 8 0 0 25.00
46.3 76.8 mph, Naeem nailed. How many of you have Munaf in your fantasy team? Raking it in, eh? He does what he does best - keeps it back of a length on off stump. This one keeps low too as Naeem plays all around it, in an attempt to flick. Munaf doesn't appeal as much as direct the umpire to raise his finger. And he obliges. Four for Munaf. 275/7
View dismissal Abdur Razzak lbw b Khan 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
47.6 84.2 mph, and gone. Easy as it comes, Zaheer has a wicket off his last ball. Length ball on off stump, holds its line and thuds into Razzak's pads as he tries to work it leg side. Would have hit leg 279/8
View dismissal Shafiul Islam run out (Harbhajan Singh) 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
48.3 from Patel, Harbhajan throws down the stumps and Shafiul has to go. Shafiul defends from leg stump, straight to Harbhajan swooping in from wide mid on, and Hasan sent him back. Harbhajan hit the stumps at the batsman's end and it was all over. 280/9
