    19.1 this is dead plumb. Maskadza has finally fallen. Bangladesh sense the win now. Masakadza walks down the wicket, but Zia gets it to swing in from outside off, and hits him in front. Not the best of shots 93/5
    1.4 bowled'im. As has been the norm today, another wicket has been gifted. This is wide, on a length, Chakabva pushes at it away from the body, gets an inside edge onto the stumps 4/1
    3.1 Islam is on fire. Butt's debut has not ended well. That's full and fast, Butt has closed the face a touch to play it to leg, and the ball has jagged back in after pitching to knock the middle stump out of the ground 13/2
    14.5 off stump out of the ground. Razzak does it with the non-turner. Short of a length, outside off, this one goes on with the arm, beats the inside edge by a long way, and the top of off is hit. Timbah 78/3
    18.4 given without replays. Down the wicket, pushes this to cover, goes through for the non-existent single. The throw is quick if not all that accurate, and Mushfiqur does well with the collection and the breaking of the wicket 93/4
    31.3 and finally the slog gets Bangladesh the wicket. This partnership much have frustrated Bangladesh, but Zia has come back and broken through. Waller swipes across the line, and misses, and is bowled 148/8
    19.4 horrible slog across the line. Zia bowls on a length, on off, he swipes across the line. Off stump goes for a walk. Elton can keep his high-tea appointment now 93/6
    21.2 another wicket gone. Hold on. They are checking if the catch is clean. This was short of a length, and wide, and he has punched this uppishly towards point. We are going to check the replays, which are not conclusive with this coverage. You cannot tell anything at all if it has been caught on a half-volley or on the full. Mominul is confident. This replay will give the batsman the benefit of the doubt. One day, I will like to see an umpire say I was watching and I know what happened. Especially with such a challenged coverage. Oh surprise surprise. They have given this 93/7
    32.1 it's over. Robiul gets the wicket with a full and straight delivery. This hits him middle and leg, and would have taken leg 148/10
    31.4 that's five for Zia. he began the day with an average for 100. What a game cricket is. This one nips back in from a length just outside off, and traps him dead in front. Can Zia finish this off with a hat-trick? 148/9
