    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
    not out
    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
