    97.4 nice loop and that's Shakib's third! Went for the sweep from an off-stump line, and it dipped a touch and went through with the angle and hit him on the back thigh. Contact was outside the line of off stump, replays show, but Dharmasena gave that out. 424/4
    67.5 gone! Sees him coming down the track again and fires it into his feet. Dhawan looks to flick, closes his bat-face early, and pops it back to the bowler off the leading edge, a dolly of a caught and bowled 283/1
    69.5 and he strikes again! Loops it up, angling in towards off stump. Rohit goes for the big drive through cover, and the ball goes with the angle, beats his inside edge, and crashes into off stump 291/2
    74.6 the big wicket, and Fatullah explodes! Kohli looks for another cover drive, but wasn't quite to the pitch of the ball, which was also a touch closer to off stump than the previous ball. It was the googly too. Ended up going off the inside edge of his angled bat, onto his pad, and then it rolls into the stumps. Was playing a long way in front of his body too. 310/3
    101.4 bowled him! Rahane was in the 90s, and he was going for his shots - clearly the team's gameplan - and he perishes to another aggressive shot. Shortish from Shakib and he went for the pull, and it just skidded through with the angle and took out his off stump 453/6
    100.6 whoa, that was gorgeous. That was the perfectly pitched googly, outside off, inviting the drive, dipping shorter than the batsman expected and turning back through the gate to knock out middle stump. Loose drive from Saha, though 445/5

    5.6 lovely delivery and Saha turns to the square leg umpire, right arm upraised, appealing for a stumping. That hung in the air just outside off, drawing Tamim forward for the drive. It dipped and spun sharply past his outside edge and Saha was lightning-quick getting the bails off, and it looks like the tip of his toe is a couple of millimeters outside the crease. That looks out to me. And the third umpire agrees. Bangladesh lose their first wicket, and it's the big one, Tamim. 27/1
    47.2 gone, gone, gone! Came out of his crease too soon and Harbhajan spotted it, shortened his length and got it to turn and bounce sharply to beat his prodding bat and Saha did the rest 172/5
    27.5 now it's Mominul's turn to come down the track and he simply doesn't get to the pitch. Dips on him a bit and he goes through with the attempted big shot, ends up skewing it high in the air off the edge and Umesh settles nicely under it at mid-off 108/2
    28.5 gone! That is a classic offspinner's dismissal. Lovely flight and dip outside off as Mushy comes forward to defend, and it spins in sharply and goes off the inside edge, onto pad, and into Rohit's hands at leg slip 110/3
    32.4 gone! This one's a touch shorter but too close to cut, and it bounces a touch extra and clips the top edge through to Saha, who takes it well, close to the bat. That's Ashwin's third wicket, and a silly approach from Shakib under the circumstances 121/4
    48.1 bowled him! Back of a length on off stump, and Sarkar looks to make a bit of room and punch through the off side. Keeps a bit low, comes in a bit to exaggerate the angle, and Sarkar chops it on off his inside edge 176/6
    61.2 five-for! Turn and bounce from outside off and it gets big on Litton, who tries to tuck it away into the leg side and inside-edges onto thigh pad, and it pops up to the left of Rohit, who stretches out an arm from leg slip to pouch it one-handed. Litton walks, and that's the end of an excellent little innings on debut. 232/8
    57.2 gone, and that's Ashwin's fourth! Turn and bounce from outside off and Hom, haflway forward, looks to tuck it hurriedly into the leg side and inside-edges it to leg slip 219/7

    65.1 down the track comes Shahid, looks for the big hit, gets more under it than behind it, and ends up skying it ten storeys up. Dhawan, at a deepish mid-on, settles comfortably under it 246/9
    65.5 and that is that. Quickish, back of a length, sliding in towards middle stump. Taijul makes room and chops it down towards third man. Throw comes in from the deep and they go for a third, and Jubair is a foot short of his crease when Saha takes the bails off 256/10
