View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Watson b Johnson 5 9 7 1 0 71.42
1.4 stunningly caught at first slip! The ball was pretty ordinary, on a length wide outside off, Tamim went after it, driving with power. He didn't make proper contact though and the thick outside edge flew at furious pace towards the left of Watson's head at first slip. Watson moved quickly, taking the catch with both hands. Made it look much simpler than it was. 9/1
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c Watson b Johnson 5 50 41 0 0 12.19
10.6 and his misery is over and this sets Bangladesh back. It was a short ball and Kayes attempted the first pull of the day. He tried to hit it from way way outside off though. It didn't come off and the top-edge flew high in the air towards the leg side where Watson took a simple catch. Bangladesh needed Kayes to kick on and anchor the innings after his excruciatingly slow start. He's gone now, after playing a rash shot. A new batsman will have to come in and get set all over again. 27/2
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees c & b Smith 56 106 73 6 0 76.71
26.6 that's a soft and silly shot from Nafees and it's undone the only bit of good cricket Bangladesh has played today. Smith flighted the ball and drew Nafees into the drive again. He ended up chipping it straight back to the bowler. One of the easier caught and bowled chances that was. 88/5
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan b Hastings 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
11.4 bowled him. Bangladesh continue to sink. Hastings hits the pitch short of a length and seams the ball away from the right-hander after pitching around off and middle. Raqibul tries to defend but plays down the wrong line. The ball clips the top of off stump. 28/3
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* b Smith 9 42 23 1 0 39.13
20.5 bowled him! Smith flights the ball across the left-hander, drawing Shakib into the front-foot drive, the ball pitches and spins back into the batsman, finding the gap between bat and pad to hit the stumps 65/4
Mushfiqur Rahim not out 81 121 80 9 1 101.25
View dismissal Mahmudullah lbw b Watson 38 66 51 1 0 74.50
43.2 lbw! A big wicket before the batting Powerplay. Watson bowled straight, wicket to wicket, Mahmudullah tried to play across the line, was beaten, hit on the pad, and was rather plumb. 167/6
View dismissal Suhrawadi Shuvo c Smith b Johnson 16 20 17 3 0 94.11
47.2 caught at cover! Shuvo backs away to a length delivery and tries to slap it over the infield, he doesn't get enough elevation and Smith takes the catch above his head 195/7

8.3 caught at midwicket. It's Robin, though, not Batman. Haddin charges and tries to hit over the leg side, he gets beaten in the flight and makes contact with the inner part of the bat. The bat turned on impact as well. The ball flies in the air at Mahmudullah, who takes a simple catch 62/1
