26.5

31.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Trott, no run, Shakib thinks he has Trott on review. It spun from around middle and clipped the top of the pad, right in front of off stump as Trott played back. Agonisingly, it's just an on-field call, the ball clipping off stump, so Bangladesh lose both reviews

34.4

38.1

Naeem Islam to Trott, no run, starts well, around middle and Trott's nudge finds midwicket

38.2

38.3

Naeem Islam to Trott, 1 run, this time Trott finds the shot and ambles a single

England 162/3   IJL Trott 55* (86b 1x4)

39.3
