    6.4 so that's another failure for Tamim! Cheema gets it to angle across slightly and pitches it on a good length, Tamim tries to drive straight but couldn't quite cover the angle of the ball, thin edge to Adnan 17/1
    27.6 all over for Nazimuddin. He battled so hard before lunch, but two bad shots on the trot end his stay. He's late to get forward to this one and again props the bat at it for some good old slip catching practice. The edge was dying on Hafeez in the slips, but Nazim walked off quickly. Or did he? He's stopped at the boundary edge. Hang on, they are looking at replays now. No change in decision, Nazim's debut innings is over. 71/6
    8.3 Cheema gets rid of both left-handers! This was a quicker delivery, similar to the one that got Tamim, angles it across the left-hander, perhaps Nafees was better off staying on the backfoot, the outside edge flies to second slip 19/2
    11.2 Ashraful came back. Ashraful went back. Gul has removed him with a steady away seamer that landed outside off and bent away. Ashraful plonked the front foot forward and threw his hands at it. Mistake. Outside edge goes into the keeper's hands. 20/3
    15.2 trapped in front! Lands it just wide of the off stump, turns back in, he stays back at the crease and the ball hits him in line with middle, couldn't get his bat behind the line, Doctrove gives him out 28/4
    22.6 caught at square leg would you believe it! With the ring of close catchers around him he manages to find square leg, gets down to sweep, he intended to slog I suppose but didn't get the elevation to clear Hafeez, easy catch 47/5
    30.6 trapped on the back leg and the slide gets worse! He bowls from round the wicket, lands on middle and leg and holds its line, Mahmudullah wasn't sure with his defence, the ball hits his back leg in line with the stumps 81/7
    51.2 very soft dismissal, Nasir tries to paddle that from the off stump while standing upright, gets a tame top edge and it lobs up and gives the easiest of catches to silly point 135/10
    40.6 good reflexes by Younis! Ajmal comes over the wicket, Sunny comes forward to defend, fails to cover the line, Adnan wisely opts not to go for it and leaves it for Younis who falls to his right and cups it 97/8
    45.5 through the gate, a bit too good for Shahadat, the quicker one which zips through, hardly any time for the batsman to get behind and defend, through off and middle 118/9

    83.5 very lucky breakthrough for Bangladesh because there was a thick inside edge! Sunny gets the ball to drift in with the angle, Hafeez gets forward to defend and the ball hammers the inside edge and clips the back leg, Billy Doctrove doesn't take too much time to give him out 265/3
    53.1 finally success for Bangladesh! The drinks break does the trick and so does Mahmudullah who bowls it a touch flatter, gets him to come forward, the ball lands on middle and leg and goes through with the line, looked quite straightforward for Billy Doctrove 164/1
    72.3 Shahadat gets one! He fires this one on a good length outside off, gets it to come back in slightly after pitching, Azhar stays at the crease and drives away from the body, he gets a thin edge that shaves the bottom edge of his bat and Rahim takes the catch 220/2

    97.4 an unusual innings from Misbah ends in unusual fashion. Somehow this man always manages to make things look comical! Full toss on off and middle, harmless, gentle and there for the taking. Misbah leans across for the lap sweep and somehow misses it. The ball hits the pad in front of off and middle. Plumb-o! 311/4
    169.2 chips down the track and tries to take him downtown over long-off, not enough distance to take it over the boundary and Nafees is there to take it 570/5

    7.5 he completely misjudged that! Tossed up on the off stump, Tamim went forward to leave it hoping it would turn but it went straight through and clipped the off stump, very similar to the way Hafeez got him in the third ODI right here 24/1
    61.5 no maiden hundred for Nazimuddin, another flighted delivery from Rehman, Nazimuddin isn't quite to the pitch this time as he attempts another inside-out lofted drive, ends up skying it, easy for the fielder at mid-off, Pakistan are four wickets away now 205/6
    18.5 just when things were looking good for Nafees! Drifts on middle and leg, he gets down to sweep and he fails to make contact, struck in front of middle, the umpire Tarapore gives him out 74/2
    19.6 Ashraful was squared up for the turn! Rehman tosses it up and it just about lands on the leg stump line, the ball turns away slightly and traps him on the pad, clips the outside edge and travels to second slip 75/3
    26.2 he falls for the on-side trap! Cheema bangs it in short, Nasir cannot resist a pull, he doesn't control it well, Hafeez runs forward from deep square leg and takes the catch comfortably and falls 80/4
    49.3 there's the wicket that Pakistan wanted, Shakib is stuck on the crease as he looks to defend, short of length ball spins in quickly and hits him around off, below the knee-roll as well, he's a goner, well done Rehman, and on this morning of fifties, Rehman get his 50th wicket 158/5
    75.5 no half-century for Mushfiqur, that was plumb as they come, the arm ball from Rehman, Mushfiqur was on the back foot, had a huge back lift and the ball slides on before the bat comes down, hit low in front of middle 252/8
    64.6 terrific delivery that, the doosra does the job, left the batsman utterly clueless, Mahmudullah looks to defend down the track but he wasn't expecting the ball to turn away, past the outside edge and takes off stump, seven down now 210/7

    82.3 it's all over in Chittagong, Shahadat backs away and looks to power a short ball through the off side, hits low on the bat, and that loops towards Gul at cover, a massive win for Pakistan 275/10
