  Bangladesh 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Sinclair b Mills 15 28 26 2 0 57.69
7.1 pitched up just outside off, Tamim goes for an expansive square drive but doesn't get the elevation needed to clear the infield on the off side, the ball flies to Sinclair at backward point who cups it at head height 17/1
View dismissal Junaid Siddique c Bell b Martin 13 62 35 2 0 37.14
14.4 pitches on a good length bang on middle, shapes away just a touch after pitching, forces Junaid to lunge forward, gets a thick outside egde to Bell at third slip who takes it comfortably and falls over backwards 49/3
View dismissal Habibul Bashar c †McCullum b Martin 1 5 7 0 0 14.28
8.2 Martin gets the ball to swing into the right hander, hits a full length outside off, draws Bashatr forward, he gets a thick outside edge through to McCullum. Bashar could have left that alone but he was done in by the swing 18/2
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful* c †McCullum b O'Brien 35 66 51 6 0 68.62
23.4 hits a good length outside off, straightens after pitching, Ashraful lunges forward but leaves a bit of daylight between bat and pad, there was a sound as the ball went through to McCullum. Ashraful turns back. Umpire Long was convinced it went off the edge but Ashraful doesn't look happy with the decision. Replays point more towards the ball clipping the pad. The Snickometer showed the ball clipping the pad so Ashraful was rather unlucky there 71/5
View dismissal Shahriar Nafees c Fulton b O'Brien 6 27 16 0 0 37.50
21.2 O'Brien finally gets his reward.....pitches just short of a good length on middle and off, Nafees could have shouldered arms to that one but instead he pokes at it outside off with an open blade, the ball flies off the face of the bat to Fulton at second slip 68/4

View dismissal Shahadat Hossain c †McCullum b O'Brien 1 4 4 0 0 25.00
39.3 Shahadat doesn't last too long.... pitches on the channel outside off, moves away from the right hander just a fraction, Shahadat can't resist fishing at it and it leads to his downfall as a thin outside edge goes through to McCullum 111/8

View dismissal CD Cumming lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 42 150 114 7 0 36.84
35.1 the change of ends pays off for Shakib.....he fires this one flat and fast, the ball lands on a fullish length on middle stump, Cumming plants his front foot forward and meets the ball on the pads. That looked like hitting middle stump and Umpire Llong didn't take too long to decide on that 118/3

1.5 Bangladesh strike early.... short of a length outside the leg stump, the ball holds its line, Bell swivels and tries to pull, plays too early, there was a sound as the ball passed him, the keeper and Islam are confident and umpire Nigel Llong is convinced. Bell looks unhappy though and shakes his head. The snickometer didn't really reveal an edge off the bat or glove. Replays showed the ball clipping his thigh pad before reaching the keeper. 2/1
View dismissal PG Fulton lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 22 29 24 3 1 91.66
8.6 another quick strike.... pitches short of a length in the region outside the off stump, comes in after pitching, Fulton has a half stride forward and tries to tuck it to the on side, the ball strikes him high on the front pad and umpire Peter Parker is convinced. It may have gone over the stumps.... 35/2

71.1 he's thrown it away.... flighted on off and middle, Fleming takes a few paces down and goes for the loft over deep midwicket, he doesn't go through with the loft properly and as a result skies it to Aftab at deep midwicket who takes it easily 242/6

After several dropped catches, this one finally sticks 214/4
View dismissal JDP Oram c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shahadat Hossain 1 6 8 0 0 12.50
62.2 pitches on middle, cuts in just a fraction, it slices Oram in half and leaves a bit of daylight between bat and pad, there was a sound and the fielders and bowler appeal for a catch.
