8.6

Mills to Junaid Siddique, OUT, Persistence pays. Mills kept plugging away on the middle and off line. This time pitches on the fuller length on the middle stump. Junaid lifts it high up in the air as Gillespie comes running across from mid on and takes the catch comfortably

28.6

Oram to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, outside off and short in length. Ashraful throws it all away once again as he pulls to deep mid wicket where Fulton takes the offering. Ashraful played a special innings here today and lucky are those who watched it

Mohammad Ashraful c Fulton b Oram 70 (72m 57b 10x4 1x6) SR: 122.80

Bangladesh 151/5   Mehrab Hossain jnr 1* (1b)   MR Gillespie 2.3-0-19-2

29.6

Gillespie to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, outside off and swinging away, gets a feather edge to McCullum as we are being witness to another of the familiar Bangladesh collapses

Mushfiqur Rahim c †McCullum b Gillespie 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 151/6   Mehrab Hossain jnr 1* (1b)   MR Gillespie 3-0-19-3

32.2

Oram to Mehrab Hossain jnr, OUT, short on the off stump, Mehrab steps down the track and decides to leave the ball. The ball flies off the outside edge to backward point where How grabs the offering. I can't imagine what Mehrab was thinking. Excellent stuff from Oram who's now taken three

Mehrab Hossain jnr c How b Oram 3 (20m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

Bangladesh 154/7   Farhad Reza 0* (2b)   JDP Oram 6.2-0-33-3

40.3

Mills to Farhad Reza, OUT, Reza trying the late cut too often, perishes in the attempt also as Styris at wide first slip takes the catch easily. Sad that Bangladesh have thrown away a good start

46.3

Oram to Abdur Razzak, OUT, on the off stump, guides to point and sets off for a single as How who comes in from backward point throws the stumps down and finds Shahadat short of his crease

Shahadat Hossain run out 3 (14m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 201/10   Abdur Razzak 22* (19b 2x4 1x6)   JDP Oram 8.3-1-36-3
