30.3

KJ O'Brien to Raqibul Hasan, 1 run, nurdled down to third man

30.4

KJ O'Brien to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, cunning improvisation from the Mighty Atom! Across the crease, down on one knee, and flicked over fine leg for Bangladesh's first boundary in ten overs

30.5

KJ O'Brien to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, good line and length, right on the money, defended

30.6

KJ O'Brien to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, stands tall, deep in the crease, and driven out to midwicket

Bangladesh 140/4   KJ O'Brien 1-0-6-0

32.1

KJ O'Brien to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, good delivery, inswinging and yorker-length, drilled back to the bowler

32.2

KJ O'Brien to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, O'Brien's got this ball going a bit, a hint of reverse maybe. And a hint of an appeal too. Going down, and bat involved. Otherwise close

32.3

KJ O'Brien to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, shuffled out to third man

32.4

KJ O'Brien to Raqibul Hasan, no run, full length once again, and definite late movement. This promises to be a very useful spell

32.5

KJ O'Brien to Raqibul Hasan, no run, good shape again, a fraction of width allows Raqibul to go for his stroke, but more sharp fielding in the covers

32.6

KJ O'Brien to Raqibul Hasan, 1 run, driven down to long-on, tidy stuff

Bangladesh 146/4   KJ O'Brien 2-0-8-0
