10.4

Naeem Islam to Bell, no run, Bell stretches forward to pat back to the bowler. The stadium is heaving at the moment

10.5

Naeem Islam to Bell, 1 run, calmly worked down the ground

England 40/2   IR Bell 1* (2b)

11.1

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, ooh, edged! Bell leant into a drive but a touch of spin found the edge but it went one-bounce to slip

11.2

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, short, too short from the bowler this time but the pressure is on England and Bell toe-ends his cut to cover

11.3

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, touch of air from Razzak, spin too and Bell is careful in defence

11.4

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, oof, this keeps very low. Burrowing through from a length to find the bottom of Bell's defensive bat

11.5

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, this really is low, ball not getting above ankle height. The line is excellent which gives Bell nowhere to go

11.6

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, maiden over, an excellent one that Bell finishes by defending very carefully

England 40/2   IR Bell 1* (8b)

12.2

12.6

Naeem Islam to Bell, no run, again the line was a touch leg-sided but Bell pushed firmly to mid-on

England 43/2   IR Bell 2* (11b)

13.5

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, more intent on Bell's defensive push here, but not much more

13.6

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, another excellent Razzak over ticks by and England have just seven from the last four overs of Powerplay

England 44/2   IR Bell 2* (13b)

14.3

Naeem Islam to Bell, 1 run, Bell this time finds long-on, standing up tall to punch a shorter ball

14.5

Naeem Islam to Bell, no run, Bell has not yet come down the track and instead defends this from the crease

14.6

Naeem Islam to Bell, no run, good finish from Naeem makes it another good over for Bangladesh, pushing through a flatter ball that Bell pats back to him

England 47/2   IR Bell 3* (16b)

15.2

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, Bell skips down the wicket and has to scoot back almost as quick as his drive finds the bowler

15.3

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, this time Bell inside edges towards midwicket

15.4

Abdur Razzak to Bell, no run, width on offer here but Bell is struggling and can't time his drive. The crowd are sensing the pressure building

15.5

Abdur Razzak to Bell, 1 run, that'll do nicely for Bell, down the wicket again and this time eases down to long-off

England 49/2   IR Bell 4* (20b)

16.1

Mahmudullah to Bell, no run, tidy start from Mahmudullah on a length and line around off stump

16.2

Mahmudullah to Bell, 1 run, touch shorter, Bell straightens up and punches to long-on

16.4

Mahmudullah to Bell, OUT, Bangladesh alive again! What a soft dismissal. Bell chipping a length ball from around off stump gently to midwicket. He walks off shaking his head, doesn't make good viewing. Return to the bad days of Bell but dream start for Bangladesh

IR Bell c Naeem Islam b Mahmudullah 5 (19m 23b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.73

England 53/3   IR Bell 5 (23b)
