    2.2 gone, bowled, too quick! softens him up with the previous ball and this one is on a length, deviates slightly into the batsman and the defence is opened up by that one, hits the top of the stumps and the bails are sent flying 4/3
    1.4 leading edge and gone! Bangladesh may have dropped caught-and-bowleds but West Indies won't do that here! it was a length ball and he tries to work it away to the leg side, gets bit of a leading edge and it goes back to the bowler, Sammy takes a simple catch over his head and West Indies draw first blood. 3/1
    1.5 edged and gone, caught in the slips! now, the dew does seem to have come on, and under the lights it has made the ball wobble a little, away from the batsman, he went for the drive, more of a push I think and the outside edge goes through to the second slip, well caught low down. 3/2
    21.2 gone, stumped off the carom ball! it was a wonderful ball, one that almost deserved the wicket, it was on off and it spun away at some pace. Rahim was looking to drive it straight, and missed, over balanced as well and before he could return back, the keeper had removed the bails...big wicket at a crucial time 87/6
    2.5 edged and gone, or is it? there was a genuine nick there and the ball was taken by the keeper, the question is whether the ball bounced before it went into the keeper's gloves and the replays tell me that yes, it's gone straight into the gloves, cannot give that not-out. Yep, given out, four down and in gargantuan trouble. 7/4
    5.3 short and pulled to the fielder! half their side is gone even before the late-comers must have taken their seats after the break. short and worth pulling and he does just that, only problem is that he neither keeps it down, nor gets it over the fielder at square-leg, its hit straight to Pollard and another one has bitten the dust. Or the dew. 13/5
    not out
    27.2 whoa, given out, lbw, no given out caught? interesting one this, he was playing for the turn and it goes straight on, probably misses the bat and hits the pad, goes over the stumps and to the keeper, who holds it. the bowlers appealed for that one and the umpire raises his finger, but not sure whether he is out caught-behind or lbw! 113/7
    27.3 gone, first ball, bowled! this is getting over far too quickly here, outside the off and that one turns in sharply, in fact this is one of the few that Permaul has really ripped, the batsman was very late on the stroke, got his bat down very late and by the time he did that, it had gone through to rattle the timber 113/8
    32.5 gone, this time, out, lbw, was fuller and nipped back into the batsman, he was on the back-foot and hits him on the back pad, given out and rightly so! 132/9
    34.1 given out, caught in the slips it was on the middle and went through quickly and seemed to have gotten an inside edge on to his pads, popped up for the slips to take a simple catch! Oh wait, the umpire has given it out lbw, but there did seem to be an inside edge, one way or the other he was out, so the right decision was given there. 136/10
