    11.1 and there is that elusive wicket! That's due reward for a hard-working spell from Shafiul, a good length outside off, angling across the left-hander, and a comfortable but fast chance to second slip 44/1
    24.1 gone! Razzak strikes first ball! Cook departs! Not sure how Cook was undone there, it was flighted on a line just outside off stump, Cook defended from the crease, but down the wrong line, sending it off the outside edge to the first slip. Bangladesh delirious! 83/3
    13.1 done 'im! Full length, late movement, wriggles off the inside-edge and pings the top of the stumps! Excellent work from Shafiul who's really in a rhythm now, and well, Trott was baffled by that and didn't want to go, but he's been done good and proper there 48/2
    39.4 done like a kipper! And you have to say, that was an accident waiting to happen. A massive gallop down the track, but equally huge spin and Mushfiqur has the rest of the week to take off the bails ... 153/4
    107.4 where has that come from? That drifted, dipped, gripped and spun viciously from outside leg stump to flick the off bail, and Bell departs for 128 against the run of play! Shades of Shane Warne's ball of the century - not quite in the same league, obviously, but Shakib has undone the batsman in a similar way with massive turn. The celebrations are muted, however, firstly because Bell already had 128, and secondly because Bangladesh realise they have to bat on this wicket too 376/6
    62.2 what a catch! That was a stunning effort from Jahurul Islam, who leapt to his right to cling on to a stinger after Morgan scythed a short, wide ball to backward point. It certainly wasn't the greatest ball with which to pick up a wicket, but Morgan's shot - though hit very hard - went in the air. Superb effort in the field that 223/5
    121.1 oh dear, he's missed out, and that's a bit of a giveaway dismissal. The attempted reverse sweep, but he paddled the ball straight into gully's midriff. 419/9
    112.4 gone! Swann stays deep in the crease as Razzak fires one through quicker and the batsman is pinged on the back pad in front of leg stump. Huge appeal, and Billy Bowden quickly gives him out, and he's back up by the replays which suggest the ball would've hit the leg stump. Good decision, and a timely wicket for Bangladesh on the stroke of lunch! 399/7
    117.3 and that's the end of that. A bit of flight, a touch of turn, Shahzad slaps a lofted drive to cover. He didn't get to the pitch, and paid the price 414/8

    121.3 and that was rapid. Shakib bags his five-for, as Finn fails to get fully forward - strange for a man of his length - and is nailed lbw 419/10

    33.6 outside off, a fraction too wide, Tamim has another swing, gets the nick, and Prior completes a tumbling catch! 169/3
    23.6 bouncer again, too high to keep control of the stroke, Shahzad steadies himself at fine leg, and Finn ends Kayes' valiant effort. And not before time from England's point of view 126/1
    30.6 there's the wicket, and you have to say, that was inevitable! Swann's first wicket of the series, but it was the same delivery he had bowled for two consecutive overs to Junaid. This time it snicked the edge on the way through to Prior, and England have an opening 153/2
    36.1 done 'im! The 'classical' offspinner's dismissal, drifting away through the air, pitching outside off and drawing the batsman into the drive and then spinning in sharply between bat and pad to rattle the stumps! 169/4
    47.2 gone! First Test wicket for Shahzad (from the third ball of his second spell). It was full and wide and Ashraful threw the bat at it. He hit it well but couldn't keep the ball down and smashed it straight to backward point - Morgan it was - who barely had to move. 200/6
    42.6 gone this time! The dismissal was coming, Shakib didn't look remotely comfortable at the crease. Swann floated one up temptingly on off stump and Shakib flashed an optimistic drive. The ball dipped on him and spun sharply, taking the edge and flying to slip where Anderson holds on to a sharp chance. 185/5
    52.5 edged straight to slip! Mushfiqur got his left foot right out and across, but the ball was really quite wide and in normal circumstances he shouldn't have considered playing it. But he must've been thinking of the follow-on, and of his partner at the other end, and so went to drive. A thick edge was the result, and Anderson takes another good catch at slip. Bangladesh almost done now... 216/9
    49.2 a beauty from Shahzad! That's simply too good for the batsman. It was on a length and swinging through the air, going right through his defences to disturb the stumps. He just missed it, was bowled, and Bangladesh are crumbling now 210/7
    51.5 cleaned him up! Another great delivery from Shahzad, and he's picked up his third wicket with pace and movement. This one was full, came in with the angle but then jagged away very late to beat Shafiul's defensive poke and smash into the stumps. Shahzad has his tail up now, and he's bowling superbly. 214/8

    54.1 gone! What happened there? The ball pitched outside off and turned in really sharply, hitting Shahadat on the back pad and then rebounding off Prior's pads to hit the stumps. England appeal in unison, and Umpire Bowden agrees, giving him out lbw. Replays suggest that could well have spun down the leg side, so Shahadat can consider himself a touch unlucky there 216/10

    0.2 he's gone second ball! Outside off, climbing off the seam, takes the edge, and Prior completes the catch! 2/1
    5.6 there it is! Four short balls, four dismissals in this series, and that was inevitable. Another bouncer, another airy hook, and Shahzad claimed a good low catch at deep backward square 14/2
    6.5 a touch fuller, enough outswing and lift off the deck, Siddique defends, but Pietersen in the gully snaffles a squirted edge 18/3
    12.2 too easy. Short, straight, climbing to the splice, and a looping edge to Trott at first slip 37/5
    7.6 shorter and straighter, a loose dab, a simple nick, Prior snaffles, and Finn celebrates with a dignify-free somersault as he loses his footing again! 21/4
    13.3 gone this time though! Shahzad strikes! Oh dear, oh dear, they're falling in a heap. This was a good, zippy delivery, pitched on, perhaps nipped back a fraction to burst through the defences of Shakib 39/6
    25.1 oh no, really soft dismissal that. After fighting so hard Mushfiqur has gifted his wicket away. Clipped a gentle full ball straight to short midwicket. Finn looks too embarrassed to celebrate properly, but Mushfiqur should be mortified 76/7
    29.6 gone this time! It was another short ball, Mahmudullah got into a slightly odd position to hook, almost crouching as he played the shot, took a faint top edge and Prior made no mistake. There must be a question over whether that was the third bouncer of the over, which would have made it a no-ball. But perhaps it wasn't over head height 97/8
    34.1 and that is that! Razzak has one slog too many and sends the ball miles high off the top edge, it was swirling around and Morgan actually did well to watch it carefully into his hands at deep long on. 123/10
    33.3 much better line and what has happened here? Shafiul backed away and open-faced a defensive prod into the slips, it dipped late as it reached Strauss, but the England captain is unsure whether it carried and the umpire has asked for the TV replay... it looked like he has his hands underneath it and the third umpire gives it out. Looked a good decision and that's another five-wicket haul for Steven Finn 119/9
