    28.6 jeez, third waste of the day, and it is the biggest one, that of a well-set Tamim Iqbal, pushes in front of mid off and rushes for the single, Shingi runs in, slides forward and lobs it at the stumps, a direct hit, and Tamim is found short by a foot or so 102/3
    13.2 oh dear, oh dear, what a waste, he's batted so well against the swinging new ball, and now he does this, at the stroke of drinks, Meth pitches it up and straightens it around off, Jahurul wants to loft that straight, he's only ended up offering cover a skier, it needed some running back but is done quite safely, taken as it comes down over his shoulder 44/1
    18.5 Ashraful throws it away now, wants to pull a bouncer just outside off, it has climbed a lot, around head-high, he ends up lobbing it to gully from close to the toe end 58/2
    33.3 guess what's happened again, won't be too hard, another one has given it away, Mominul tries to punch a good length ball through extra cover, instead, he's scooped it for the man at extra cover to take a dolly, Mominul had got across and was close to the line, tried to slap it away on the up in the end but it bounced 125/4
    73.5 half the Bangladesh side has now gifted their wickets away, Shakib charges out to a short of a length delivery, has a heave and edges it through to the keeper, walks off in utter disappointment 248/5
    82.1 hits the pads first ball and produces the big wicket, umpire Hill takes time before raising the finger, that was pitched up close to off and nipped in sharply, Mushfiqur touch late in getting forward, hit on the knee roll in front of off, no issues with that 280/6
    108.1 he's been bowled round his legs, Cremer has bowled several unplayable deliveries, but he'll take this, tossed up good length ball on leg stump, Nasir moves across to work it fine, and misses it, leg stump rattled 367/9
    91.5 huge inswinger now, first time he's bowled it this morning, Ziaur walking out and failing to work it to leg, hit in front of middle, but there was a lot of angle on this, and it could have been missing leg, umpire Gould upholding the long appeal eventually 313/7
    106.6 Zimbabwe hold on to their first chance of the morning, Gazi has a look at this tossed up ball and slams it in the air, it is dying in front of long on, who runs in and dives forward to take an excellent catch 364/8
    113.2 that will be it, Sajidul prods at a back of a length ball leaving him close to off and edges it through to the keeper 391/10

    12.1 Robiul gets more reward, it is that delivery again, he can pull it off at will, angled in good length on off, drawing him well forward for the defensive push and moving away to nibble the edge through to the keeper 26/2
    10.5 Robiul has got his due, loud appeal from the cordon immediately as Mushfiq takes the ball, the same one he's been bowling so often, pitching off, moving away and bouncing from a good length, Chakabva stretches forward, but don't think there is an edge on this one, there was a sound, could have been bat hitting pad 23/1
    22.4 lovely, the big turn previous ball, and this one slides in next from wide of the crease, Masakadza forward to block, but leaves the gate open slightly, enough for Shakib 45/3
    45.1 Taylor's holed out, Gazi strikes big in his third over, came down to a tossed up ball and lofted with the turn, straight to deep midwicket, got too close to the line as Gazi angled it in, he knew right away as soon as he hit it that he was in trouble 97/4
    65.4 uh oh, another wasted wicket this Test, Waller gets a shortish offbreak not getting up much, and he pulls it straight to deepish midwicket who is quite some way in from the boundary, what a bonus for Bangladesh, this wicket has fallen right in to their lap 163/5
    88.3 Bangladesh surge before lunch, and it is that relentless bowling machine unflagging Robiul again, Chigumbura was happily playing his good length deliveries off the back foot, Robiul pitched it up on the stumps, Chigumbura tentatively forward to defend, but leaves a gap between bat and pad, timber 257/7
    86.3 Robiul again, this man is possessed, strange decision from Mutumbami, he's taken a step out and padded up right into this good length ball, expecting too much away shape again, but this has nipped in instead, it needs a rather long appeal for umpire Gould to agree with the fielding side 248/6

    93.3 given straight away, sharp take from Mushfiq down the leg side, Meth shuffled a long way to this offbreak that spun across sharply from outside off, bounced too, he tried to nudge it fine, there was a sound, keeper went up immediately, and Meth, who was looking quite solid, walked 274/8
    94.4 fifth for Robiul, given by umpire Hill after a long appeal, not sure there was an edge here, Shingi walks back shaking his head, that delivery again, angled in, pitching off, bouncing and moving away, Shingi forward to defend, the sound could have been bat hitting pad 281/9
    95.6 that will be it, Jarvis pushes inside the line outside off and a quick offbreak skids past 282/10

    3.4 that is a snorter, and Tamim's given by umpire Hill, he's stunned and walks off slowly shaking his head, Shingi slanted it across and it flew from a good length, so much that the keeper had to leap to take it, Tamim was pushing forward, and the sound, trucks notwithstanding, has to be bat hitting pad, replays don't suggest any edge 7/1
    5.4 no problems with this one, similar to the rippers Robiul was bowling, but this good length outswinger was slightly wider, Jahurul was eager to push forward, though, and gets a clear edge through to the keeper as it bounces 12/2
    6.4 oh dear, another one, now Ashraful is not convinced, he cannot believe it as umpire Gould's finger goes up, and walks back with several glances back, Ashraful is right to be aggrieved, this low full toss was swinging in, and was headed easily down the leg side 18/3
    23.4 Shingi Masakadza it is again, he was peppering Mominul with the short stuff earlier, floated it up this time, Mominul stretching forward for the drive, and first slip latches on 65/4
    45.2 Hamilton Masakadza has broken the partnership, it is a nothing delivery, full and very wide, but Shakib, like in the first innings, has had a brainfade, he's walked out and swung at it, and the edge is through to the keeper, Hamilton is lifted by his brother Shingi 149/5
    69.6 and it is Hamilton Masakadza again with a breakthrough, Mushfiq gone short of a century to a stunner from Sibanda, who's dropped a few this game, this time he goes flying to his left at shortish backward point/square gully to get both hands to it, Mushfiq came forward to drive this length ball, but it's bounced and zipped more than he thought, and a thick edge flies from close to the splice, Sibanda to the rescue 233/6

    70.3 umpire Hill's given this right away, Cremer's drawn Ziaur forward with a tossed up ball, it's turned past the push, Ziaur's dragged his back foot out too, and by the time he gets it back, keeper has the bails off, sharp work 234/7
    77.2 flays at a full and wide ball and it is Hamilton Masakadza with his third wicket, it started way wide and was moving further away, Gazi went down on a knee for a big drive, and Sibanda holds onto a sharp chance over his head at that shortish backward point/square gully position 255/8
    85.3 now Sajidul heaves at a length ball, and this top edge hasn't gone anywhere, the keeper is waiting for it when it comes down 279/9

    15.1 Shakib doing it again, Sibanda has thrown it away, flighted ball angled in, he's forced it with an open face, and short extra cover's jumped to take a dolly 66/2
    9.4 Shakib with the first breakthrough, Mushfiqur screams and claps in delight, tossed up, pitched middle, drew him forward, and turned just enough to hit off, superb 36/1

    27.5 what a big wicket to get as your maiden strike in Test cricket, Ziaur's got the captain, angling it in good length from wide of the crease, and catching him on the crease, Taylor hit on the back leg, in front of off, no problems with that, seems he was beaten there for pace there as well 96/3
    33.3 Ziaur is on fire, he's uprooted Waller's off stump, terrific delivery, angled in from wide of the crease, and then straightens sharply to beat the push from the batsman, dream ball for a fast bowler, Waller did not help himself by playing half forward 118/4
    61.5 Ashraful has done it, loud, long appeal finds favour with umpire Gould, Shingi tries to sweep a tossed up full delivery, misses, and is hit in front of middle and off, gone 164/5
    64.3 what an utter waste of a wicket, with two short midwickets in place, Chigumbura skips out and chips a flighted delivery to one of those two fielders, there was Shingi Masakadza's effort, and then this 169/6
    77.2 well, he's played on to a wide one, and Bangladesh get closer, pitched up and straightening, he went too hard at the cover drive, and got a thick inside edge, timber 200/7
    82.5 nice and easy to first slip, pitched up and angled in for the drive, Cremer stretches to push, it straightens, and a thick edge carries high, around shoulder height, close to first slip's right 214/8
    83.6 umpire Gould has given this after a long, long appeal, angled in fullish, straightening, but don't think that was hitting leg 219/9
    95.3 and umpire Gould ends the match, sliding in from Shakib, Jarvis caught on the pad, can't be sure without replays, but it's all over, he's hit in front of middle and leg, and this is not straightening, tough call 257/10
