    22.1 Tamim falls! And Tredwell picks up his first wicket in Test cricket. The ball was flighted on middle and Tamim went for the sweep, but was beaten in the flight and the ball appeared to strike the glove and the forearm and loop up gently onto the leg side, where Prior ran round and dived to take the catch. The replays are inconclusive as to whether he actually got a touch on that, but he's been given out, and that'll be a relief for England! 119/2
    8.5 excellent catch this time! Imrul this time drove loosely and the ball ballooned towards the right of Finn at mid off. With the ball dying on him, he ran in and dived and held on to a fine catch. Poor shot to get out to 53/1
    37.6 Siddique gone this time and Swann strikes again! Well this is a classic, modern spinners' wicket, Siddique came forward and the ball creped between bat and pad to strike Siddique in front 167/4
    23.3 Swann strikes! Jahurul falls for a duck on debut! Jahurul went back to defend, but the ball turned more than he expected, beating the bat and thumping into the pad. Swann went up in an appeal straight away, and replays suggest that the ball was, indeed, just going to clip leg stump. Bangladesh tottering now after that scorching start 122/3
    57.1 and he picks up a wicket with his first ball! The ball was pitched up and shaped away from the right-hander. Mahmudullah didn't get his foot to the pitch, and his weight was still on the back foot, and so he ended up slicing the drive to backward point to give Collingwood a very easy catch. He had played well for his half-century, but Bangladesh really needed him to push on for a big score. 226/5
    62.5 gone this time! Shakib couldn't resist another attacking stroke, this time a sweep and he's taken on the back leg...huge appeal from Tredwell and that's his second Test wicket as the finger goes up. Big breakthrough for England after tea 254/6
    82.5 that is an absolute beauty! He's kept it on that length all over and now he's got the reward. Once again, Rahim went back to defend but this time the ball jagged away from him and bounced just enough to take the shoulder of the bat. Prior makes no mistake behind the stumps. That's really a great effort from Bresnan to draw some life from this flat wicket, and Bangladesh lose another one! 301/7

    87.1 Gone! The ball was pitched full and straight, Razzak's feet went nowhere and his bat swished across the line as the ball thudded into the pad. Swann and the ring of close fielders went up in unison, and he looked plumb even from the first sighting. Swann strikes again with the first ball of a new spell! 314/8
    108.2 and Shafiul's cameo comes to an end. Bresnan fired the ball slightly wider of off and Shafiul threw his bat out at it without moving his feet an inch. The ball took a healthy edge, and though it died on its way through to Prior, he did well to dive forward and to his right to snaffle the catch. And so ends a good innings from Shafiul, which took Bangladesh within touching distance of 400 388/9
    117.1 gone this time, Swann has the breakthrough! Rubel prodded forward and feathered an edge through to Prior, who made no mistake. 419/10

    13.4 Cook falls! He went for the slog sweep - inexplicably, as he had been scoring freely anyway. A fielder had been placed three quarters of the way to midwicket for just that shot from the very beginnings of the innings, and Imrul Kayes needed only to take a few steps forward to complete the catch. Bangladesh strike early! 29/1
    66.3 he's got him! Remarkable moment, Trott propped forward, the ball bobbled off his pad, into his elbow, and spun inexorably towards the off stump! 174/4
    40.4 gone! Massive breakthrough for Bangladesh and it's a left-arm spinner again...Shakib saw Pietersen coming down the pitch fired it in quicker and short and Pietersen just got a limp leading edge to short cover 105/2
    41.5 gone! Another one goes, Bangladesh right on top here...Rubel gets more reverse swing, Collingwood plays across his front pad and that would have taken leg stump 107/3
    143.2 Bell perishes in the pursuit of quick runs, and Shakib picks up a thoroughly deserved wicket. After the lofted drive Bell tries a slog sweep, but can't execute it nearly as well. The ball ballooned up off the top edge, and Jahurul Islam circled underneath the swirling chance, taking it cleanly in the end. And that brings an end to a fine innings from Bell, who's taken England to the brink of a first-innings lead 415/6
    90.4 Prior goes, bowled by Shakib as he charged down the wicket and swiped towards midwicket! Was he a little overconfident after the lollipops served up earlier in the over? He ran down the pitch and swung wildly at that, and was comprehensively beaten in the flight. There was a touch of turn, too, as the ball pitched well wide of leg but went on to hit the stumps. Is that the moment of inspiration Bangladesh have been searching for? 272/5
    169.3 Bresnan goes! Well, he's missed out on a chance for a maiden Test hundred now. He came down the pitch in the first real display of intent this morning, but was beaten in the flight. Mushfiqur was lightning quick behind the stumps, whipping the bails off in one smooth stroke and though Bresnan swung back into the crease he was well short. 481/9
    147.2 well, is this a wicket here? Bresnan came down the track and drove very hard back to Shakib, who got a hand on the ball, which ricocheted onto the stumps. Was Swann out of his crease? ... Yes he was! Well out, in fact, and England have lost their seventh wicket with the lead a slender 7 runs 426/7
    152.4 Broad props forward in defence as the ball is tossed up. He was beaten, but not by spin - perhaps in the flight - as the ball thudded into his front pad, sparking a huge appeal. This time the umpire Tucker quickly decides it's out and raises his finger. Late strike for Bangladesh 434/8
    173.3 mercy! Tredwell runs down the track and has a massive heave. The right option at this stage, sadly for him the execution was wrong and he missed it, Rahim was again very swift behind the stumps and Razzak has another wicket 496/10

    30.2 gone this time! That is a waste from Tamim. Thrown up outside off from Swann, Tamim really reached for it and drove, it skewed off the outside edge and was smartly caught at point. He should have been out a few times this innings, never really settled against the accurate offspin of Tredwell and Swann 86/2
    6.2 unlucky this but he's gone! Broad pitched it up from round the wicket, Imrul tried to flick it away but it crashed the into the bottom of his thigh pad and deflected on to leg stump. Desperately unlucky for Imrul, who really needed a score. I remember Michael Vaughan being bowled in that fashion by Zaheer Khan a few years ago at Trent Bridge, perhaps the pads need to be tighter. 23/1
    39.4 oh dear, unlucky for Siddique! He drives firmly off the back foot into Cook's boot, who was taking evasive action at silly point, it looped gently back to Tredwell to collect his first wicket of the innings. Desperate misfortune for Siddique and Bangladesh really wobbling now. 110/3
    57.2 Swann strikes! Classic offspinners wicket! Flighted high and well outside off, draws a drive from Jahurul, it spins back between bat and pad and cannons into off stump, really top-class bowling 156/5
    44.3 gone! Bresnan makes the breakthrough, a good ball on off stump which just begins to shape away, Mahmudullah was drawn into pushing at it and a regulation edge is snapped up by Prior 130/4
    101.6 oh no! That is a tragic end for Shakib. Cook kept long on and long off up, Tredwell threw it up and Shakib ran down the wicket and tried to smash it back over the bowler's head. He missed and dived desperately to get back into his crease but it was too late. Prior had the completed the stumping. 285/10
    64.5 gone this time! Rahim repeats the stroke, but this time it squeezes between bat and pad and trickles on to the stumps. Big strike for England that but it was a little bit loose from Rahim 169/6
    81.6 the tactic works! Tredwell has the breakthrough. Shafiul heaved it down to deep midwicket it sailed high and straight to Trott, who after his earlier gaffes would have been nervous, but he hold on comfortably 232/7
    91.6 well, what a waste. After displaying such patience and determination, Naeem chucks it away with a needless swipe to Pietersen at deep mid on. Tredwell came in slightly wider, floating the ball up temptingly once again, and Naeem hopped down the wicket and swung across the line. The ball was hit low off the bat and the fielder barely had to move. Silly shot, and Bangladesh have just two more wickets in the bank now, with a lead of 181 258/8
    100.3 got him! Full toss on the pads, Razzak walked right across his stumps to work the ball to leg and was rapped on the front pad. That's about as plumb as they come, and Bangladesh are nine down now. 275/9
