    12.1 what a gift. Bishoo strikes with his first ball. It was short, it was wide, and it was barely turning in. Tamim set himself up for a sumptuous cut, and edged it into Ramdin's gloves. 44/1
    27.5 Danza's taken a blinder! Slow offcutter from Naeem, who backs away and swings merrily, but the ball comes on slowly and takes the top edge to fly right up. Hyatt runs back from cover, dives away from the action and takes it with both hands even as he slides along the turf. Supreme stuff. 122/2
    29.4 Kayes' lively hand comes to an end, and it is that man Samuels again. Short ball outside off, it came on faster than he expected and he ended up feathering the cut to the keeper. The Powerplay is doing more bad than good for Bangladesh. 130/4
    28.5 Ashraful is on his way already. Blink-and-you-miss innings. Nice lively bouncer from Rampaul, Ashraful goes for a shot he wouldn't have tried if it wasn't the Powerplay, or if the situation wasn't so difficult (though, with Ashraful, it is tough to say). He's cramped for the pull and Ramdin takes the top edge. 126/3

    35.4 Samuels has taken the Mickey out of the innings. Rahim top-edges the sweep off a flat ball and it nestles in short fine leg's hands. Darren Bravo takes a catch, which is an event by itself. 164/5
    43.2 and that's the end of Kapali. Rampaul excels in these skiddy bouncers that come along faster than you'd imagine. Kapali top-edges a pull and it is easily caught well inside the boundary by a pumped up Simmons. 219/6
    46.2 huge offcutter. Russell gets it to dart in late and cut Nasir in half as he thinks of cutting, then steering, then defending. He was probably better off working it to the leg side. It ends up going off the bat handle onto the stumps. 237/7
