58.5 180 balls of hard work undone! He has been defending them on instinct today, but his natural game sneaks in and he swipes at a flighted ball. The hit across the line fetches only a top edge and Shannon Gabriel takes a swirler. Brilliant innings from Tamim, not quite the end it deserved 158/3
    8.4 one hook too much and this time Shamsur had no control! Credit to West Indies for cranking up the chin music. His instinct forced him to drag the ball from outside off, Taylor had got the ball to lift above the shoulder, forced Shamsur's top hand off the bat and had him looking all sorts of uncomfortable. Edwards on the edge of the boundary takes a simple catch 47/1
    11.4 huge excitement behind the stumps and the umpire relents. There was some turn, some bounce and Benn's accuracy makes the batsman push at it with hard hands an and open face. Ramdin, behind the stumps, rises with the ball and snaps up the outside edge 48/2
    60.1 forget the rest, just play with 11 Gabriels! This is a loopy full toss from Benn, the kind you wallop into the stands at cow corner. But Mominul has swiped it into the hands of midwicket where Gabriel clings to another one and is flattened as his team-mates fall on top of him. West Indies are on a roll here and as Ramdin has been chirping all day, one wicket brought three. 160/5
    59.6 he's having a good ol time after tea! Asks for a leg before appeal and is rewarded. But Mahmudullah wants a second look. This good length ball jags back quite sharply, beats the batsman for pace as he was looking to flick. The impact was over the knee-roll and the off stump was visible too. Could be sliding down, but even if it was clipping it will be given out because of that pesky umpire's call and that is what it ends up being. Not that marginal a decision in the end 160/4
    76.1 maybe we will need that extra half-hour after all? Taylor straightaway breaches the defence of Mushfiqur, who plays all around this short of a length delivery, reversing into the captain, as he looked to punch through the covers, leaving a gaping hole in which the ball swerved through to find the timber 188/8
    62.5 no matter, says Benn as he sneaks in an arm ball which skids on and traps Nasir on the pads. Jumps back and flicks across the line. He's not quick enough to get his bat down and umpire Davis says that's adjacent. The review shows parts of middle and off stump, but he was far enough back in his crease for the ball to clip leg. Bangladesh are bleeding wickets here 167/6
    68.1 how often have you seen this? straight away after the drinks break and a wicket falls as Benn gets a sixth five-wicket haul. He tosses one up on middle and off, with Taijul inexplicably slamming this back at the bowler, who takes a good return catch 173/7
    77.4 and he has bowled 'em! Roach takes his first wicket of the innings as he gets this one to nip in from back of a length, striking middle stump as Shafiul plays all around this on the back foot. 192/10
    76.5 100th Test wicket for Jerome Taylor, and what a beauty of a delivery to do it as well! Short of a length and clipping the top of Robiul's pads as he instantly goes up for the appeal, which the umpire complies with generously. As Bangladesh don't have any more reviews, it is sayonara Robiul 188/9
