    5.5 offcutter goes straight up and Muzarabani has his redemption. Tamim went down for a lap sweep, but I think he was originally thinking of nudging it through square leg. Seeing the line of the ball stray down leg stump he thought easy runs and changed his shot. Ends up with a top edge that lands into short fine leg's lap 45/1
    9.4 eesh, that's a terrible lapse from Sarkar. Shakes his head as he walks off, and this is all on him. Came down the track, got to the pitch of a legspinner on leg stump and he could have had a six for the taking. Instead he picks out the man at deep midwicket. Easy catch for Waller 75/2
    not out
    10.1 sharp catch! Well done, Mutumbami! This was nowhere near short enough to cut, but that's almost the only shot Mahmudullah left himself after moving so early and so far to the leg side. Flashing bat comes down, the under-edge is take, and Mutumbami who was just getting up from his crouch manages to hold on to it with both hands. 76/3
    15.6 made room for himself, but Cremer pushes it through quick on middle stump. Mistimed cut to point. And oh dear, Mushfiqur is cramping up badly again 128/3

    6.4 knocked him over, Sibanda has played on. Smacks the back of his bat, but he really direct that anger at his feet. Good length ball outside off lulled him into an airy push, but his footwork was negligible. That meant the ball had a big gap between bat and pad to exploit and so it did. 50/1
    8.2 down long-on's throat! Simply done by Mahmudullah and as Sabbir pumps his fists, Hami M grimaces. He might well have given Bangladesh the match here. Came down the track, but didn't quite reach the pitch. Went through with the loft and got it off the bottom of the bat. No power can be generated from there 55/2
    10.4 this is a top edge because he was hitting against the turn. Dragged the good length ball from outside off, he had played the shot under the ball as well meaning he had no chance of keeping it down. Poor choice of shot with two men in the deep 68/4
    9.6 huge appeal, it looks tight on impact but the umpire is fine with it! the dangerous Williams is gone. Went for the sweep, but Shuvagata had held the ball back a touch. Hits the batsman on the back leg having fooled him for the lack of pace, but was it in line with off stump? Very very difficult to call... 65/3
    15.3 another full toss, but this time it brings a wicket! He had to go for them, Zimbabwe needed a big over and Waller did choose a sound option - the hit over extra cover. Except Bangladesh had cleverly plugged that gap with one of their better fielders. Sarkar runs to his left and picks up a cool little catch 105/5
    16.6 those stumps are in disarray again! Pin point yorker on middle stump goes through Moor. Beaten on pace. Just take it and go, he says as the Khulna crowd go wild 109/7
    16.3 full on middle and the castle is breached! Madziva came down the track and swung across the line, he misses, Musfatizur hit 108/6
    19.6 wicket off the last ball, and its Sabbir again. Offers up a short ball that Cremer goes to pull over the leg side. He was hitting against the turn so ends up with a top edge that goes straight up and falls straight down into the bowler's own hands 125/8
