View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Abdur Razzak b Shakib Al Hasan 73 55 8 1 132.72
15.5 57.0 mph, wicket against the run of play, finally Bangladesh have a wicket. Kamran did the basics right, came down the track and converted it into a full toss. He could have put it away anywhere, but he has had a preference for the carve over cover today. Goes for the same shot again, and mistimes it, it pops up for a straight forward chance at point. Good innings from Kamran, though not the most pleasing to the eye 142/1
View dismissal Salman Butt b Shafiul Islam 73 46 8 2 158.69
18.2 67.1 mph, done in by his own cheek! Butt is roaming all over the crease looking to work it away using the bowler's pace. This time, he exposes his stumps and Shafiul finds a way past his defence to strike timber. End of a really good innings, he hardly struggled for timing on a difficult pitch 158/3
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Mahmudullah b Shakib Al Hasan 9 9 0 0 100.00
17.6 57.0 mph, and that's the end of Afridi. Harmless looping full toss on off stump, it was Afridi's ball to whack and he ended up getting a feeble outside edge that ballooned to short third man. 156/2

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c & b Mohammad Hafeez 19 18 3 0 105.55
5.3 56.3 mph, soft dismissal, soft as a baby's bottom! And a huge scalp too, Tamim is gone here. Fligted ball outside off, Tamim was into the check drive early and it popped back in the air to Hafeez who was celebrating before he completed the catch. 31/2
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c Misbah-ul-Haq b Mohammad Amir 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 82.5 mph, and he does not have to wait long to have his man! Great over finishes with a great result, as Aamer keeps it short of a length and straight, Kayes looks to pull despite not having the length and the top edge balloons up towards short third man where it is held by Misbah running back from slip 1/1
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 65 49 4 3 132.65
17.5 56.0 mph, well, he can get himself out, that's what! Ashraful lives by the sword, and also dies by the sword. Maybe the situation now needed him to manufacture a boundary, he hopped across towards off stump to look for a fine lap or pull shot, but it went too fine this time. Kamran, who's put down a couple, dives to his left and takes a beauty 140/5
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Sami 47 31 3 2 151.61
15.2 84.6 mph, and gone! Sami's struck a crucial blow and Shakib, who's run very hard for his runs in the recent past, has possible lost his wicket to tiredness. He could not pack a punch into that lofted drive over the off side and it went straight to long off. Good ball from Sami, denying him the length to drive comfortably. 122/3
View dismissal Mahmudullah c Mohammad Amir b Mohammad Sami 0 3 0 0 0.00
15.6 84.2 mph, and Mahmudullah goes, without contributing anything! Slower ball wide of off stump this time, he looks to slash it over point, but gets neither timing or placement. The dolly goes straight down point's lap. Bangladesh have lost two big sticks to Sami. 123/4
Naeem Islam not out 10 9 1 0 111.11
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c Saeed Ajmal b Mohammad Sami 4 3 0 0 133.33
18.3 56.1 mph, and another one bites the dust! Cool, calm death bowling and Bangladesh's batsmen are doing the rest as the noose tightens. This was short of a length on middle and the batsman goes for the swipe over the leg side, gets a top edge which balloons up to midwicket 145/6
View dismissal Mashrafe Mortaza st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 1 3 0 0 33.33
19.3 sells him the dummy this time! Mortaza is down the track, but well short of the pitch of the ball, which slips past him and into Akmal's gloves who gleefully whips off the bails 150/7
