    3.1 that's the first wicket! Gazi bowls it outside the off stump, enough to have Rutherford swinging after it. He misses and the ball comes in with the angle and hits the leg stump and the collective noise at the ground raises by at least 1000 decibels 9/1
    11.4 good length ball on the off stump. Devcich, after playing all those delightful strokes on the off side tries to get ugly by looking to slog across the line and is beaten. Pretty similar dismissal to Rutherford. The crowd rise up in unison 43/2
    29.5 fuller ball on the off stump. Elliot lofts and how fitting is it that Mashrafe takes the catch, a brilliant catch, as his record is the one that Rubel equals for the best figures by a Bangladesh bowler. Brilliant spell by Rubel, five wickets in it 162/9
    16.3 good length ball pitching on the middle stump and moving away. Taylor is looking to steer it and gets an outside edge. Rahim accepts it with glee as he knows that Taylor can take the game away from them quickly. Rubel, like Mahmudullah and Gazi strikes early 60/3
    23.3 what a wicket! Anderson is looking for one shot too many as he is foxed by the slower one on the leg stump. Anderson swings and is half way into his follow through by the time the ball crashes onto the middle stump. Is this the breakthrough that Bangladesh were looking for? 121/4
    23.4 is that the game for Bangladesh? Rubel has certainly turned it around for them. He bowls what seems an innocous delivery, but the ball rushes to him and McCullum slices straight into the waiting hands of the fielder at backward point 121/5
    23.5 that's a hat-trick for Rubel! This is as lucky as anyone can get as he bowls one down the leg side and Neesham tries to flick it and gets a faint edge back to the keeper. Rahim does well to dive to his right and take a brilliant catch. That's effectively game over for New Zealand 121/6
    27.5 Rubel does have his fifth! McCullum looks to wield the long handle and clears the front foot. He lofts it and it doesn't clear the fielder at mid-off. This has to be right up there as the best spell by a Bangladesh bowler. Brilliant bowling as he has run through the middle order and the lower middle order of New Zealand 143/7
    28.3 short ball on the leg stump. Southee, under pressure to get going from ball one pulls and finds the fielder at deep midwicket. 149/8
