    40.2 oh Tamim, what have you done?! He has the bowlers at his mercy when he chooses to throw it all away with a needless slog. Samuels flights this on middle stump, Tamim - who has been so selective so far - can't restrain himself from slog-sweeping. It wasn't straight enough for the shot, and he got a top edge. It swirled up and settled in the hands of midwicket when it came down. As inexplicable as someone choosing to commit suicide immediately after realising he had a billion dollar inheritance. 110/2
    11.6 well bowled Rampaul, he's made things happen in this over by changing the angle and using the seam. He shapes this in at Kayes from a touch wide of the crease and gets it to straighten down the line outside off. Kayes is not the most patient batsman doing the rounds, he pokes at it without conviction and the edge lands in Baugh's gloves. 26/1
    94.3 Fidel's struck again on the fourth morning. Nafees dies by the sword as he stays rooted on the crease and slashes at a slightly short, wide ball, that did not really bounce. Looked like he got an under edge that carried into Baugh's gloves. 274/6
    55.4 that's gone. Angled in from Sammy but its hit Raqibul on the back pad bang in front of middle. Dharmasena made up his mind pretty quickly. There was a bit of swing but Raqibul was well back in the crease and it looked pretty adjacent on first viewing 159/3
    92.1 How gutting this is if you are Rahim. He's been on 68 for over two days, itching to go out there and add to his so far impressive innings. And when he comes out, he falls first ball. Short from Fidel, hurries in from back of a length towards Rahim's hips, and he looks to nudge it square, and ends up getting a leading edge that pops up behind square leg. Nicely taken by Bishoo, running back. 255/5
    82.4 another wicket thrown away. Shakib was on top of things here, and Bangladesh were set to go to stumps in fine fettle, but Shakib has perished to a ball that didn't deserve a wicket. It was short, it was flat, it didn't turn, and it was marginally outside off. Shakib went for a hard-handed cut, despite not having the room, and ended up nicking it into Baugh's gloves. Thick edge, and Baugh did quite well to move the hands to the left and cling on to it with the webbing. Shakib looks gutted as he makes his way back. 238/4

    107.6 all over for Nasir, who has batted with needless adventurism in his debut innings. Bishoo flights it on the stumps and gets it to turn away marginally, Nasir looks to slog-heave and top-edges. Baugh settles under it as it spirals down. 317/7
    109.4 Bishoo's flipped him over, Sunny side up. The joys of watching the deception of a googly. It landed on off and went the other way as Sunny defended inside the line. Thin outside edge, flies between the keeper and slip, Sammy does well to stick out a right hand and pouch it. 317/8
    121.5 Shaha-that's that. He jumps out once more and flaps ungainly at a legbreak spinning away from him, and misses. Baugh does the rest quite clinically. 345/9

    2.4 well bowled Shahadat, he has produced pace and bounce from short of a length to send Simmons on his way. That bounced more than he budgeted for, and he ended up playing the steer more uppishly than he'd have liked. Raqibul takes a really good catch at gully, it was flying and dying on him to his left, and he moved quick as a whippet to pouch it. 14/1
    41.1 all that effort gone to waste. Brathwaite is gone after a meek poke after leaning forward, and Sunny has three on debut. Tossed up ball on middle and straightening menacingly, Brathwaite got forward and poked at it, and it sat up after popping onto the pad, for short leg to gobble it. 109/4
    14.5 The fielders weren't helping him, so Sunny does it himself. He catches Edwards plumb in front with a typical left-armer's delivery. It came in from wide of the crease, landed on a good length around middle stump and straightened. Edwards went for the sweep, but it was too full for thre shot, and was through him to hit the front pad in front of middle. 39/2
    22.2 West Indies are playing spin quite poorly here. Bravo is on his way. Flighted ball on off stump, a puff of dust as it turns in, but nothing out of the ordinary off the pitch. With two men catching close on the leg side, Bravo had no business reaching out and dabbing it with the turn, but that's just what he did. Straight into short leg's hands. 47/3
    49.4 Sunny strikes again, and this the biggie. Chanders is gone on 49. He jumps down the track and gets close to the pitch before looking to work it to midwicket. He may have got a feather on it (replays aren't conclusive) before it hit the pad and popped up to slip. Bangladesh went up in unison, the appeal was upheld, but Chanders shakes his head all the way back to the pavilion. 132/5
    53.3 five wickets on Test debut for Elias Sunny! What a legend, already. This was suicidal from Samuels. Tossed up delivery on leg stump, there's no need to play a scoopy inside out drive in the third over of a pointless final day. But that's just what he does, and gives short cover a simple catch. 147/6
    60.3 Elias now has the best figures on debut by a Bangladeshi debutant! Well, at least as long as he doesn't concede three more runs. He has bowled Baugh round the legs, with a ball that Shane Warne wouldn't scoff at. Curls around from over the stumps, lands well outside leg and changes direction madly to hit the castle even as Baugh misses the sweep. It is a Sunny morning in Chittagong, alright. 207/7
    67.3 that's the end of Sammy's gleeful hitting. Shakib holds the length back a touch and Sammy still dances down the pitch and looks to heave. He misses the length, the ball stays low and finds the base of leg stump. 239/9
    65.5 top edged, and this time Tamim is not anywhere near the catch (drop?). Rahim's big gloves settle under the mis-hit and Rampaul is on his way. 224/8

    67.6 Shakib's ruined it for Sunny, who finishes with the second best debut figures for Bangladesh. Bizarre collapse from West Indies, who have gone down in style like the band that played on the Titanic. This one spins in sharply from outside off, Bishoo flaps at it without getting to the pitch and the ball spins in to disturb the off stump. Shakib finishes with three, and Bangladesh lead by a significant 106 runs. 239/10
