    17.3 what a concentration break. He was playing so well before the rain break. Then came an over with just one run, and he has thrown it away now. You expect better from one of your best batsmen. He has left the crease and lofted this straight down the throat of long-off. This is not a mis-hit. He has hit this in the direction of the fielder, almost as if he thought the mid-off was up in the circle. To Ashwin's credit, he did cramp Tamim up, but he has worked harder for wickets 123/2
    13.4 well bowled. A yorker, but forget it. India have got lucky here. Lucky in that they have been provided a run-out opportunity out of nowhere. Tamim digs it out to leg, there is no single available, but Sarkar sets off. Rightly sent back, but not in time. Raina swoops in, gets an underarm flick in, and catches him short with a direct hit. Lucky that they get the opportunity, skilful in cashing it in 102/1
    19.4 Ashwin strikes again. He has bowled this one superbly. Gets the offbreak to dip, Das thinks he is to pitch of the ball but isn't. He goes ahead with the drive, but Ashwin has created enough separation to turn this back in and hit his pad. Right in front of off he is hit. The ball would have hit middle 129/3
    23.3 Rahim down the wicket, looks for a straight six, but has holed out. Ashwin is on a roll. Bangladesh are imploding. The idea is right, in that he is looking to go straight, but the ball has dipped ever so slightly to pitch out of the zone of a clean swing. The mis-hit settles with Rohit Sharma at straight long-on 146/4
    43.4 This is short and wide. Shakib can hit it anywhere b ut he has hit this straight to backward point. Can you believe it? This is not a slower delivery but has stuck in the pitch, which has defeated his shot and made him hit it straight to the fielder 267/6
    37.5 timber. Jadeja strikes. For all his criticism Jadeja has done well today. Sabbir has been looking to slog sweep him. The first one beat him and missed off by six inches. The next one, taken from wide outside off, was connected well and went for four. This, though, was straighter than the first one, and beat Sabbir to hit the off stump. He is one of the tougher bowlers to slog-sweep 229/5
    45.6 lovely catch by Jadeja. A full toss, on off, Hossain gets hit high on the bat - nowhere near waist high, though - and the outside edge seems to have lobbed over point. Jadeja runs back, almost over-runs it, but then gets both the hands up, reverse cups, to catch it 282/7
    49.4 so Sharma does what Yadav has been doing. Digs one in short, the ball gets head high, Mortaza is not in control of it, and offers R Sharma catch at mid-on 307/10
    46.5 India keep chipping away. Kumar tucks him up with a short-of-a-length delivery with no room. Rubel is mostly a front-foot player, and he is handcuffed here with the ball rising chest high. All he manages is a lob to mid-off 286/8
    48.5 this wicket was a-comin'. Taskin has been frustrated by the short balls. This time he walks down to one, is in no position, and the edge settles with cover 298/9

    20.5 what a big first wicket for Mustafizur. Twenty-five thousand in the stands scream their lungs out. They have gone mad. Bangladesh are on top. Lovely bowling. It's the cutter that has done it. Rohit fails to pick it, looks to work a fullish ball to leg, gets a massive leading edge that settles with Mortaza at mid-off 105/3
    15.6 finally they have caught one and Dhawan walks. He is looking to make room, Taskin remains short and follows him. Dhawan tries the upper cut, but has no space. The edge settles with Rahim 95/1
    17.2 Kohli has played a loose shot. That itch to feel bat on ball. The crowd has come alive. This is short of a length, wide, and Kohli just hangs his bat out. Even if he nails this nothing shot, he is not going to get a single off this. Which makes it an ordinary shot. And he has edged it. The roof comes off the stadium again, and game is on again. This is proving to be a superb ODI with all the twists and turns 101/2
    22.6 lovely catch. Start the party already, Dhaka? Bangladesh get closer to a win? Another slower ball. He bowls a mean cutter. Rahane is early into it. Then to recover he turns the bat face early. The leading edge seams like it is sailing over his head but Nasir Hossain times his jump to perfection. Then he kicks the ball away. And 25000 celebrate with him 115/4
    36.4 what a cutter. Mustafizur has his own back. He bowls a mean cutter. It is not easy to pick. Raina is totally deceived by the lack of pace on it. Looks to drive at it away from the body as it pitches on a length outside off. Too early into the shot, and then the ball cuts back in to take the inside edge onto the stumps. Mustafizur is pumped 188/6
    25.3 lovely sharp catch, and Mushfiq gets in Dhoni's face. This is not a pleasant match, but Bangladesh are playing superbly. There is a previous to this aggressive celebration. Not long ago Dhoni collided with a debutant to send him off the field. Now Shakib draws the edge, quite a thick one as the ball dips and then turns away. Mushfiq takes a lovely catch, letting the ball turn and deflect and taking it almost behind his body, and then screams in Dhoni's face 128/5
    38.2 five-for on debut. They are all on his back. They love him. Bangladesh loves him. Mustafizur has run through India with his cutter. It does it once again. Jadeja knows he has to do something. No point playing for a not-out. He looks to hit a six because the asking rate has gone too far, and is undone by the slower ball. Holes out to long-on. Start the party, Dhaka 195/8
    36.5 and out goes Ashwin. Mustafizur is on a hat-trick. Lovely cutter again. He changes the grip at the last possible moment. Later than usual. And the pace dip is not too big. In fact the pace on this slower delivery is enough for a faint edge to carry through to the keeper on a subcontinent pitch. This one pitches on a length, on off, and cuts away to kiss Ashwin's bat 188/7

    42.4 and Bangladesh are a step closer. Mushfiqur has turned his own night around after dropping Dhawan twice. This is a slower ball from Mortaza, Sharma makes a bit of room to try to run this down to third man. The ball is slow, takes the edge, and Rahim dives to his right to take it one-handed. That's a fifth catch for Rahim 219/9
    45.6 that's it. Shakib has provided the finishing touch with an lbw with an arm ball. Trapped in front. Cue big celebration. They have earned it, and deserved it. Mortaza calls Taskin for a chest bump to reprise the World Cup celebrations. And Mortaza performs a mock fall to reprise World Cup again 228/10
