    1.4 stunningly caught at first slip! The ball was pretty ordinary, on a length wide outside off, Tamim went after it, driving with power. He didn't make proper contact though and the thick outside edge flew at furious pace towards the left of Watson's head at first slip. Watson moved quickly, taking the catch with both hands. Made it look much simpler than it was. 9/1
    10.6 and his misery is over and this sets Bangladesh back. It was a short ball and Kayes attempted the first pull of the day. He tried to hit it from way way outside off though. It didn't come off and the top-edge flew high in the air towards the leg side where Watson took a simple catch. Bangladesh needed Kayes to kick on and anchor the innings after his excruciatingly slow start. He's gone now, after playing a rash shot. A new batsman will have to come in and get set all over again. 27/2
    26.6 that's a soft and silly shot from Nafees and it's undone the only bit of good cricket Bangladesh has played today. Smith flighted the ball and drew Nafees into the drive again. He ended up chipping it straight back to the bowler. One of the easier caught and bowled chances that was. 88/5
    11.4 bowled him. Bangladesh continue to sink. Hastings hits the pitch short of a length and seams the ball away from the right-hander after pitching around off and middle. Raqibul tries to defend but plays down the wrong line. The ball clips the top of off stump. 28/3
    20.5 bowled him! Smith flights the ball across the left-hander, drawing Shakib into the front-foot drive, the ball pitches and spins back into the batsman, finding the gap between bat and pad to hit the stumps 65/4

    43.2 lbw! A big wicket before the batting Powerplay. Watson bowled straight, wicket to wicket, Mahmudullah tried to play across the line, was beaten, hit on the pad, and was rather plumb. 167/6
    47.2 caught at cover! Shuvo backs away to a length delivery and tries to slap it over the infield, he doesn't get enough elevation and Smith takes the catch above his head 195/7
