View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Imrul Kayes b Rubel Hossain 50 130 102 5 0 49.01
32.1 Brathwaite has thrown it away after doing the .. em .. grunt work. It is a shot he plays well, as we saw before lunch - the steered cut through point. But this ball was a little too wide for him to have to play at it. And it was through him faster too. He ended up guiding it to the right of Kayes at gully, who takes the catch well. 100/1
View dismissal KOA Powell b Suhrawadi Shuvo 72 228 150 10 0 48.00
54.1 and he's bowled him for his first Test wicket. Tossed up on middle from round the stumps, Powell gets the front foot out and plays down the wrong line. He just seemed to have over-estimated the spin there. The ball went past the outside edge and disturbed the prone off stump. Rahim is visibly relieved. 155/2
View dismissal KA Edwards lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 121 371 273 14 2 44.32
124.1 Huge appeal and he's given it. That was the arm ball and it hit him on the back pad. Height was a bit of a question and Dharmasena thought about it for a while before raising the finger. It wasn't that short but Kirk Edwards went back to it and played for the turn and it beat the inside edge. Shakib went wide of the crease but it hit Kirk Edwards in front of middle and would probably have hit the top of leg 348/9
View dismissal DM Bravo lbw b Nasir Hossain 12 28 30 2 0 40.00
63.6 Nasir strikes, Bravo is on his way. Full, straight, angling in from wide of the crease, lands outside off and heads straight on. Bravo thrusts forward with bat beside pad, but the pad is not outside the line off off stump. All over. 180/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Nasir Hossain 18 77 58 0 0 31.03
82.1 the old ball barely turned off the straight, but the new ball has spat and gone away. Chanders didn't budget for it as he prodded with an opened face, and the ball kisses the outside edge on the way to a delighted Rahim's gloves. Once again, that ugliest of celebration routines from Nasir, who crosses his hands and puts them on either side of his unmentionables and does a chop-chop action. So devoid of class that it is almost funny. Great ball, though... Or great delivery, to be clearer. 226/4
View dismissal KAJ Roach b Shakib Al Hasan 6 9 13 1 0 46.15
84.3 and that's the end of the nightwatchman. What purpose did his arrival serve? If they believe in the concept, they should send another one in now. Another armer from Shakib, not the easiest to spot for a top-order batsman. A tail-ender has a much lesser chance of surviving it, over a potential three-over spell. Roach had no clue as it hurried in through his defences to hit timber. 232/5
View dismissal MN Samuels c & b Nasir Hossain 48 110 79 7 0 60.75
112.3 Nasir pulls off a true-blue WWE style ripper! He is so stunned, he doesn't do the DX chop routine he normally does when he has a wicket. Tossed up on the stumps, and for the second time in two innings, Samuels drives inside out uppishly. He timed the shot well, and the ball was buzzing away past Nasir to his left, but he leaped to his left and plucked it when fully in the air, shooting diagonally up from the ground. 319/6
View dismissal CS Baugh c Imrul Kayes b Shakib Al Hasan 6 19 27 1 0 22.22
118.6 that's the end of Baugh. Two late wickets help Bangladesh claw back into the session once again. This ball didn't deserve a wicket. Slow, loopy and wide outside off, Baugh looked to cut and ended up edging it into slip's hands. Kayes holds on well. Beer references aside, Cartlon's run-drought continues. 337/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy* hit wicket b Shakib Al Hasan 1 6 6 0 0 16.66
120.2 is that the end of Sammy? He's trod back onto his stumps. Strangest dismissal I have seen in a while. After Rahul Dravid's caught behind off the shoe lace. It was drifting down the leg side from Shakib, Sammy went back in the crease and looked to flick, but the ball kept low and his back leg seemed to slip. He inevitably stepped on the furniture and that's the end of that. Bangladesh are right back in this and it is lunch. 339/8
View dismissal FH Edwards lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 9 14 14 1 0 64.28
126.4 that's five for Shakib! Fidel's gone back to a delivery to which he should have been well forward. Hit him on leg and there wasn't a lot of turn. Just straightened enough to hit leg and it kept low as well so would have hit halfway up leg stump 355/10

2.3 what a catch! Off the face of the bat but Bravo's snatched it at short leg. That was short of a length and coming into Tamim from the round-the-wicket angle. It got big on him and he's fended it but can't keep it down. Went in the air towards short leg and Bravo who was fielding quite deep there had to dive to his left and reacted superbly to pluck that out of the air 14/1
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c Brathwaite b FH Edwards 29 54 26 5 1 111.53
8.5 of all the ways to get out, he's hit it in the air to square leg. That was on leg stump and should have been clipped for runs but Kayes has managed to hit it straight to the fielder. 59/5
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees c Bravo b FH Edwards 7 8 8 1 0 87.50
4.6 caught at short leg again. Again the short one into the ribs and Shahriar was in tangles trying to fend it. It's gone looping up on the leg side, and Darren Bravo, just brought into the short leg position, has a much easier catch this time. That one didn't bounce that much but Shahriar was caught on the back foot. Ended up looking a really ugly shot in the end 36/2
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan lbw b FH Edwards 0 8 2 0 0 0.00
6.2 that's plumb. Oh wait, the umpire is checking the no-ball and it's very close. They've decided in Fidel's favour and it's his third wicket. Was full and Raqibul went back to it. Hit him right in front of off and middle and was a straight ball. Would have taken out middle. The ball kept a bit low and Raqibul was looking for the extra bounce Fidel has been generating. That's reward for some aggressive bowling from Fidel. He had got the batsman on the back foot and then got him with the fuller one 46/3
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim*† c Chanderpaul b FH Edwards 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
6.3 and he can walk right back. Fidel is on fire here. This was quick again and bounced high outside off stump. Mushfiqur should have left it alone but he's just waved the bat it and it's taken the edge to Chanderpaul at first slip. Fidel is beating the batsmen with pace and bounce on a supposedly slow and low track in Mirpur 46/4
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan b Bishoo 73 113 74 9 0 98.64
31.4 bowled him!! That was really slow and it's turned. Goes right through the gate. Shakib is livid with himself for leaving a big gap between bat and pad. He was beaten as much by the flight as by the turn, which was considerable. Got forward and seemed to be waiting to bring the bat down. When he did, it was along the wrong line as the ball had turned in from well outside off to take middle stump. Classic legspinner's wicket that 143/6
View dismissal Naeem Islam run out (Chanderpaul/Bishoo/†Baugh) 45 158 113 5 0 39.82
49.3 Bishoo to Nasir Hossain, what an utter disaster! Bangladesh have gifted away a wicket through a needless run out. Naeem is on the way now. It was a hopelessly short ball, Nasir goes for a lofted pull and it looked like it would reach the boundary. If only it had ... The ball stopped up in the outfield as Roach ran after it to haul it in. There was always an easy third run on offer. Nasir went for it immediately, Naeem wasn't so convinced. The throw went to the bowler's end, Bishoo collected and lobbed it to the keeper as Naeem scrambled in. Out by miles. Heartbreak. The short leg fielder Bravo loves it, he does a jig even as the bails are removed! 195/7
View dismissal Nasir Hossain c KA Edwards b Samuels 42 122 113 4 0 37.16
64.6 the single was denied, and Nasir got impatient. He goes for the slog heave to a ball that was neither full enough, nor straight enough for the shot. He ended up dragging it into the air from well outside off, and West Indies were celebrating even before Kirk Edwards completed the catch at deep midwicket. Nasir looks distraught. 225/9
View dismissal Suhrawadi Shuvo c Brathwaite b Bishoo 15 47 38 1 0 39.47
63.1 on your way, Mr. Shuvo. Extra bounce and predictable spin on this legbreak from outside off. Shuvo covered the line, but could not deal with the bounce. He pops it off the inside edge to short leg as he leans forward. 225/8

67.6 Bishoo Kumble's Shahadat and that's the end of that. West Indies lead by a weighty 124. Quick, straight, skidder that lands outside off and hurtles in through the bat and pad gap before Shahadat could cover it. Timber disturbed. Well bowled West Indies. 231/10

0.2 from Rubel Hossain, direct hit! What have we here! Third umpire called into play. Brathwaite may be in desperate trouble. Length ball on the stumps, Brathwaite dabs it to square leg and responds late for the single as Naeem swoops in, picks up with the right hand and hurls it at the stumps at the non-striker's end. Brathwaite is caught short by a foot or so. 0/1

17.4 suicide from Powell! Where did that come from? Tossed up invitingly outside off, Powell was in a quandary whether to go with the spin or hit through the line. He went for the former, but that meant he had to drag the drive from outside off to long on. Of course, he needn't have gone for the shot at all in the first place. He ends up miscuing off the inner half of the blade to mid-on, and Nasir settles under it. 33/2

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Sammy b Bishoo 83 186 158 8 1 52.53
49.6 Is that the end of Tamim? There was an edge and it was taken at slip, but the question is whether the ball bounced before or after hitting the bat. Very full ball from Bishoo, tough to say from the live pictures if it was a full toss or a half-volley. Tossed up outside off, Tamim skips yards out of the track and goes for the big cover drive away from the body. The magnifier is in, and by the looks of it, Tamim got the nick just after the bounce, and the bat then hit the turf. Sammy takes the catch well at slip. Tragedy for Bangladesh ... Sadly for Tamim, he seemed to get too close to the pitch of the ball to get the bulk of the bat behind the stroke. He'd have been safe if he had over-run it some more. 168/4

2.6 gone! or is it? short of length ball outside off, Kayes nicks it towards Kirk Edwards at first slip, taken very low by Edwards, Kayes isn't sure the ball carried, Kirk is sure it did, the on-field umpires have a chat before deciding to ask for the replay, I thought Kirk had taken it cleanly when I saw i live, but on the slow-mo replay with the zoom on, it seemed like the ball bounced before Edwards clasped it, third umpire doesn't seem to have those doubts, he's sent Kayes on his way 26/1

33.3 this time Raqibul doesn't survive, there's an outside edge this time, off the thigh pad of the keeper Baugh, and pops up for first slip where sammy has a simple catch, a solid partnership is broken, Samuels thoroughly enjoyed that wicket, breaks out into a sort of dance which I won't try describing here 124/3

71.2 Bishoo has produced a ripper and that's the end of Rahim. Is that the end of Bangladesh? Ripping legbreak that, dipped on Rahim to land just short of a length on middle and leg and then break away like a fiend. Rahim tried to cover the line, but he was too late for the big spin and the ball zipped past to disturb off pole. End of a really fine innings. Should he have played off the front foot? Lovely dip from Bishoo. 260/6
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan c Chanderpaul b Sammy 55 80 70 7 0 78.57
68.3 hearthbreak! Shakib is gone to a dismissal softer than a baby's bottom. Short of a length and angling in amiably. So amiably that Shakib tried a cheeky nudged across the line from outside off. He turned the wrists a little too early, and the leading edge ballooned up behind square on the off side. Chanders from slip runs back and completes the catch. Sammy has done the trick yet again. 256/5
View dismissal Naeem Islam lbw b Bishoo 3 37 30 0 0 10.00
79.2 Bishoo has five for the first time! Naeem is on his way, and I suspect Bangladesh don't quite know how to play legspin. Naeem was only creating the illusion of getting forward here, barely a foot out of the crease as he presents bat and pad close together, without any conviction as to what the ball was going to do. It was flat, quick and hurried along straight to hit him in front of middle. No doubts about this one. 271/9
View dismissal Nasir Hossain lbw b Bishoo 3 4 12 0 0 25.00
73.3 Nasir's gone early after the break. Gem of a flipper from Bishoo, it hurtles through straight after landing back of a length on middle. Nasir went for the pull, but the ball skidded along much before the bat came through, and struck him on the thigh, but he was well back and not standing erect. Good call from the umpire. 264/7
View dismissal Suhrawadi Shuvo c Sammy b Bishoo 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
73.5 this is ending faster than anyone would have imagined. Bangladesh are beyond neck deep in trouble, and Shuvo is on debut, but he's not inspired enough to buckle down. Short ball alright, but runs aren't the prime consideration anymore. Plus, it wasn't wide. Shuvo still goes for a cut and pops it straight to Sammy at slip. The ball was travelling, and Sammy fumbled at first, but dived away to his left to take the rebound low. 264/8

80.2 stumps everywhere, and Sammy picks up one and roars in joy. The Windies have won a series away from home for the first time since November 2003. The first win in a Test away since January 2008. Roach slips in a fast and straight ball that straightens on off stump to make a mockery of Rubel's defences before making a mess of his stumps. All over. 278/10

2.6 to Imrul Kayes, gone! or is it? short of length ball outside off, Kayes nicks it towards Kirk Edwards at first slip, taken very low by Edwards, Kayes isn't sure the ball carried, Kirk is sure it did, the on-field umpires have a chat before deciding to ask for the replay, I thought Kirk had taken it cleanly when I saw i live, but on the slow-mo replay with the zoom on, it seemed like the ball bounced before Edwards clasped it, third umpire doesn't seem to have those doubts, he's sent Kayes on his way 26/1

80.2 to Rubel Hossain, stumps everywhere, and Sammy picks up one and roars in joy. The Windies have won a series away from home for the first time since November 2003. The first win in a Test away since January 2008. Roach slips in a fast and straight ball that straightens on off stump to make a mockery of Rubel's defences before making a mess of his stumps. All over. 278/10

12.1 to Shahriar Nafees, Sammy is a tall man but he gets down in an instant to accept a low chance from Nafees, wonderful reflexes from the West Indies captain, and that means Bangladesh are 73/2 as we head for tea 73/2
68.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, hearthbreak! Shakib is gone to a dismissal softer than a baby's bottom. Short of a length and angling in amiably. So amiably that Shakib tried a cheeky nudged across the line from outside off. He turned the wrists a little too early, and the leading edge ballooned up behind square on the off side. Chanders from slip runs back and completes the catch. Sammy has done the trick yet again. 256/5

49.6 to Tamim Iqbal, Is that the end of Tamim? There was an edge and it was taken at slip, but the question is whether the ball bounced before or after hitting the bat. Very full ball from Bishoo, tough to say from the live pictures if it was a full toss or a half-volley. Tossed up outside off, Tamim skips yards out of the track and goes for the big cover drive away from the body. The magnifier is in, and by the looks of it, Tamim got the nick just after the bounce, and the bat then hit the turf. Sammy takes the catch well at slip. Tragedy for Bangladesh ... Sadly for Tamim, he seemed to get too close to the pitch of the ball to get the bulk of the bat behind the stroke. He'd have been safe if he had over-run it some more. 168/4
71.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Bishoo has produced a ripper and that's the end of Rahim. Is that the end of Bangladesh? Ripping legbreak that, dipped on Rahim to land just short of a length on middle and leg and then break away like a fiend. Rahim tried to cover the line, but he was too late for the big spin and the ball zipped past to disturb off pole. End of a really fine innings. Should he have played off the front foot? Lovely dip from Bishoo. 260/6
73.3 to Nasir Hossain, Nasir's gone early after the break. Gem of a flipper from Bishoo, it hurtles through straight after landing back of a length on middle. Nasir went for the pull, but the ball skidded along much before the bat came through, and struck him on the thigh, but he was well back and not standing erect. Good call from the umpire. 264/7
73.5 to Suhrawadi Shuvo, this is ending faster than anyone would have imagined. Bangladesh are beyond neck deep in trouble, and Shuvo is on debut, but he's not inspired enough to buckle down. Short ball alright, but runs aren't the prime consideration anymore. Plus, it wasn't wide. Shuvo still goes for a cut and pops it straight to Sammy at slip. The ball was travelling, and Sammy fumbled at first, but dived away to his left to take the rebound low. 264/8
79.2 to Naeem Islam, Bishoo has five for the first time! Naeem is on his way, and I suspect Bangladesh don't quite know how to play legspin. Naeem was only creating the illusion of getting forward here, barely a foot out of the crease as he presents bat and pad close together, without any conviction as to what the ball was going to do. It was flat, quick and hurried along straight to hit him in front of middle. No doubts about this one. 271/9

33.3 to Raqibul Hasan, this time Raqibul doesn't survive, there's an outside edge this time, off the thigh pad of the keeper Baugh, and pops up for first slip where sammy has a simple catch, a solid partnership is broken, Samuels thoroughly enjoyed that wicket, breaks out into a sort of dance which I won't try describing here 124/3
