View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Raina b Kumar 22 12 12 2 1 183.33
2.5 78.1 mph, aaaaand gone! Praveen persists with the 'Hit me' length ball outside off, Tamim goes for it again, driving uppishly, but could not find the gap. Raina takes a nice tumbling catch at cover, and India have redeemed a start that was rapidly going away from them. Praveen looks angry.. He always does! Whaddaplaya! 35/1
View dismissal Imrul Kayes c Sehwag b Nehra 37 70 35 7 0 105.71
15.2 79.6 mph, Gone. Kayes perishes to a bouncer that involved some effort, but had little pace. Kayes went for the pull but was hopelessly late on the shot, it popped up for a simple catch inside the circle at midwicket 88/3
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful c Kumar b Nehra 20 46 37 2 0 54.05
13.2 76.3 mph, ah! With Ashraful, you know the brain freeze is just around the corner, and here it is. Having played watchfully all along, one boundary has brought the impetuosity back. He goes for an ill-advised hoick off a short of length ball on leg stump. It was there to be hit, yes, but that was not the right shot. It ballooned off the top edge, high over square leg, but Praveen Kumar stayed put and took a nicely judged catch near the rope 81/2
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c †Dhoni b Sehwag 30 67 55 1 0 54.54
32.1 49.7 mph, and Viru's golden arm has not lost any of its charm! Sharp turn this time from outside off, puff of dust as it bounced off, Rahim played outside the line, got some glove on to the pads and it ballooned to the leg side. Dhoni had enough time to take the catch. 160/6
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* b Harbhajan Singh 7 7 7 1 0 100.00
16.3 51.2 mph, Beauty! Harbhajan has OWNED Shakib with the perfect straighter one. It was tossed up again, Shakib got forward, but was a fraction short of the pitch of the ball. He could not smother the lack of spin, as it darted in through the bat-pad gap to knock the pegs. Class. It was intended as an offie, but it did not turn away. 100/4
View dismissal Mahmudullah c †Dhoni b Jadeja 23 39 41 2 0 56.09
29.4 57.8 mph, Jadeja intervenes and breaks the deadlock with a quicker one, outside off. Mahmudullah was lured into the cut, but was late on the shot, and the outside edge was fumbled and then taken nicely by Dhoni. 155/5
View dismissal Naeem Islam c †Dhoni b Sharma 3 14 12 0 0 25.00
33.4 50.7 mph, Given! Rohit Sharma has a wicket, but he might have been lucky. Flighted offie outside off, the batsman looks for a cover drive, and there is a definite noise, but the batsman looked unhappy. Might have been bat hitting the ground, but he has to go. 167/7
View dismissal Suhrawadi Shuvo lbw b Sehwag 4 9 4 0 0 100.00
34.1 49.0 mph, well, the pacemen are rusty, but India's army of spinners are on the money today. Straighter ball from round the sticks, rushes in past the inside edge and raps him on the back pad. Dead plumb, and that's that. 167/8
Mashrafe Mortaza not out 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
View dismissal Shafiul Islam lbw b Sehwag 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
34.4 49.4 mph, Sehwag is having a ball with the ball! Another regulation offie outside off, and Shafiul sweeps without much idea, across the line. Raps him on the pads, he is a little forward of the stumps, so umpire Doctrove thinks long and hard but eventually gives him. 167/9
View dismissal Syed Rasel b Sehwag 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
34.5 almost saw it coming. Sehwag looked as menacing as Malinga did last night, and Rasel was shivering when the genius of part-time off spin dawdled in and landed one from round the sticks on off stump. There was some flight, no spin, no pace, but he played all around it and it found its way to the furniture. 167/10

View dismissal G Gambhir lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 82 129 101 6 0 81.18
30.1 77.3 mph, and he's removed Gambhir straight away. He never looked at ease against the fast bowlers, got some runs against the spinners, but still needs some confidence ahead of tougher challenges. This one was a length ball on middle stump and rapped Gambhir, hanging in the crease, in front of middle and leg. He was quite late coming down on it, and it would have taken out middle. 158/4
View dismissal V Sehwag c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mashrafe Mortaza 11 29 14 2 0 78.57
6.1 81.8 mph, and there will be no violence from Sehwag today either! Mortaza nails him with the away swinger, short and wide outside off. It was in Sehwag's hitting area and he went for the expansive cover drive but the away swing did him in, and the faint outside edge was pouched by Rahim. 37/1
View dismissal V Kohli st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 11 35 22 0 0 50.00
14.4 49.1 mph, lovely bit of bowling from Shakib! Flight outside off and turn, luring Kohli forward and breaking past his off stump. His back foot strayed out of the crease and he could not get back entirely in time. Toes on the line, bails in the air. Third umpire takes a few close looks at it and says Kohli is out. 80/2
View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
14.5 51.2 mph, and he's gone first ball! All those talks of bonus points can stop for a while, since Shakib is creating a chance for Bangladesh here. Arm ball speared in on off and heading straight for leg. Rohit makes a lazy forward lunge with bat tucked behind the pad and it hits him flush in front of middle. The umpire thinks it through and rules him out. Well! 80/3
