Bangladesh 16/2   DJG Sammy 1-0-1-1

5.1

Sammy to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, caught at short midwicket! Sammy is on fire today, though the ball wasn't outstanding. Full ball on middle and leg, Mushfiqur wanted to flick and made very good contact, striking the ball hard. He flicked it in the air though and Sarwan barely had to move at short midwicket. That is a sharp catch. Mirpur falls silent for the third time.

5.5

Sammy to Junaid Siddique, no run, what happened there? That pitched on leg and seamed sharply across the left hander, squaring him up a touch and beating the bat. Did that hit a crack?
