    11.4 Graeme Swann take a bow! Really good bowling, held this back again, found some drift into Tamim, who tentatively popped forward and shaped to defend, the ball spun past the outside edge and clipped off stump. Offspinners' dream ball, and the Bangladesh fans are stunned. 33/1
    14.3 Finn strikes! He's bowled well all morning, finds some carry and pace and a fraction of movement outside off stump, Imrul, having done so well to survive, departs three balls before lunch, as the ball snicks the outside edge of his defensive prod and climbs through to Prior 45/2
    107.4 gone! England get their breakthrough at last, another lovely piece of bowling from Swann as he got one to turn from off stump, Siddique played forward and got a edge which carried low to slip...well taken by Collingwood 277/6
    32.5 Bresnan continues to find something with the old ball and finally England have a breakthrough! Aftab had played so well but drove loosely at this just outside off, it came in a fraction and feathered an inside-edge through to Prior 99/3
    36.6 got him! Cracking spell this from Bresnan! Mahmudullah was slightly casual here, trying to flick it away into the leg side, but it was full, swinging in and crashed into the stumps off his pad 105/4
    37.6 Shakib gone again to Swann! You sensed it coming, it was full and straight, Shakib opting to sweep again but it wasn't there for the shot. Poor shot but top bowling 110/5
    113.3 gone! And again it's that man Swann as he fires one under the bat of Rahim as he uses his feet. It was an aberration from Rahim, who misjudged the length, and a real shame, he deserved a hundred after a fine innings 294/7
    123.6 that's it! Swann has 10 in the match and England, finally, win! Naeem clipped it high down to midwicket where Carberry took a good diving catch. It's been a long, hard graft for England, Bangladesh did very well in the final innings. 331/10
    114.6 gone! That looked plumb, Razzak played across a full straight ball and the umpire's finger goes up straight away...Broad didn't even look round, which could get him in a spot of bother 301/8
    122.6 another one gone! Full and Shahadat had a flat-footed fence at it outside off, faint edge through to Prior and this is nearly done 327/9
