Martin to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Asharful goes first ball..... Martin lands it short of a good length on off stump, the ball swings in before pitching, Ashraful moves across his stumps but offers no stroke.

Oram to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, swing and a miss..... Oram pitches this bang on off stump and the ball goes through with the line. Aftab, who was scoreless all this while tries to desperation to get off the mark and goes for a wild swing over mid-on. The ball pegs the off stump back

Bangladesh 98/5   Tamim Iqbal 51* (86b 9x4)   JDP Oram 7.3-2-15-1

32.2

Martin to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, the short ball works..... Martin gets the ball to kick just short of a good length, the ball climbs on Tamim's midriff and he just has to play at it. Tamim leaps, the ball lobs off the top half of his bat and gives Fulton an easy catch at second slip running forward
