    15.2 edged and taken! Gambhir gets sucked in by one that pitches short of a length and sits up more than anticipated, but truth be told he had no business chasing it and ends up snicking a rising catch to the wicketkeeper, cuing wild celebrations from Bangladesh 79/2
    14.6 bye bye Sehwag! Just goes back to the leg side and pushes a slightly short ball in the air to Tamim at short extra cover, stationed there for this very shot 79/1
    17.4 bowled em! Shadahat pitches much fuller, searching for that yorker length, and Dravid plays all over it as he looks to work it the on side 85/3

    28.3 what a dismissal! Smart work from Mushfiqur behind the stumps! Shakib tosses it up on middle and leg and beats Laxman in the flight, he skips out and looks to flick the ball but gets an inside edge onto the pads, then loses balance after playing the loose shot and in that time Mushfiqur picks up the rolling ball and breaks the sticks 107/4
    38.5 that's a very soft dismissal, full toss lobbed straight to mid-on, he chips down the track on seeing the flight but doesn't hit it with any conviction, hardly gets the desired elevation and it's a dolly for Rubel 149/5
    39.3 the bowling change has worked! Shahadat swings it away and pitches it up outside off, induces him to go for the spooned drive, he chips it low and Raqibul times his dive really well at gully and pulls it off inches off the turf 150/6
    51.6 and he's gone! Aims for the yorker, ends up a low full toss, but crucially he gets a hint of reverse and strikes Mishra flush on the boot in front of about leg stump 182/7
    58.3 eight down, and Shakib has four! Zaheer pushes forward, the ball goes on with the arm, takes the smallest inside edge and pops up to the falling silly point 209/8
    67.3 edged and taken, the angle works as the ball pitches back of a length and leaves Ishant who stands there and gives Mushfiqur catching practice 230/9
    70.5 all over, and five for the captain! Pitches well outside leg stump and turns in to Sreesanth who tries to turn it away past short leg but instead gets a leading edge that balloons up and settles in silly point's hands as he takes a few steps back 243/10

    16.2 the off stump gets jolted from its slumber! The ball lands outside off and nips back in, Tamim was a little lazy on the shot and misjudged the bounce which was lower than expected, the stump goes flying back a few yards 58/3
    14.4 this time he gets the target, Zaheer pitches it fuller and gets it to angle inwards, Kayes repeats the shot from two balls before - trying to whip it across the line - and the ball hits his pads in line with leg stump, no doubt for Bowden this time 53/1
    15.2 double-strike for India! Lovely good length delivery on middle stump, Shahriar should have been playing straight but he angled his bat and squared himself up, thick edge goes to Laxman at second slip 58/2
    21.2 not surprising because Ashraful was looking shaky all along, that's a real peach from Ishant, hones in on middle stump, Ashraful is squared up and gets a thick edge to Dravid who hops at first slip and hangs on comfortably 68/4
    30.3 quite an eventful over so far! Lovely delivery from Sreesanth, lands on the corridor outside off and kicks up a bit more to Raqibul's liking, he fails to withdraw his bat and the edge is snapped up comfortably by Karthik 98/6
    26.1 one shot too many, and a superb catch by Sehwag, and what a big wicket! gets the width here, goes after it, but the ball holds its line slightly and bounces a bit more, enough to get a healthy edge that seems to be sailing over gully, but Sehwag times his jump perfectly and makes the catch look easy 89/5
    59.1 against the run of play! Loose shot, Mishra tosses it up outside off, Mushfiqur bends down to slog against the turn but gets a thick top edge which goes down Sehwag's throat at midwicket 206/7
    64.6 thin edge, pitches outside off and straightens, Mahmudullah tries to run it down to third man but ends up snicking it to the keeper, the batsman walks 235/9
    63.2 soft dismissal, Mishra tosses it up outside off and tempts Shahadat to go for the lofted drive, he ends up chipping it tamely to Yuvraj at point 228/8
    65.2 they're a run short of India;s total, Shafiul goes for another big hit, this time over the off side but gets a thick top edge and Yuvraj takes it at point 242/10

    47.4 Shafiul Islam has struck, short and wide, goes for the cut, flies off the outside edge and it lands straight into the palms of Nafees at third man, Shafiul has his first wicket in Tests 233/3
    16.6 Sehwag is gone, he looks to slog it against the turn from well outside off stump, gets a top edge that swirls to square leg for an easy catch 90/1
    38.4 Mishra goes, that was unnecessary, tossed it up on the off, charged down the track and tried to clear mid-off but didn't time it well and found the fielder, Tamim took it with ease 188/2
    51.2 run out, shortish on middle and leg, dropped it wide of midwicket and raced for a single, Shakib ran forward, picked it up and flicked it onto the stumps at the non-striker's end, Dravid didn't drag his bat into the crease there, it was in the air and he was caught short 245/4
    57.4 lbw! Rubel pitches one on a good length around off stump and nips it back into the right hander, how many times have we seen Tendulkar get out this way? He gets caught on the crease and closes the face of the bat, trying to play the ball on the leg side, he misses and the ball hits him plumb in front 272/5

    67.3 caught! Shahadat pitches the ball on a good length and angles it across the left-hander, Yuvraj came forward and tried to drive on the up, he hit it in the air and straight to Ashraful at short cover 313/6
    78.3 Rubel takes a fantastic catch to send off Karthik, tossed up outside off, came down the track and flogged it wide of mid-off where Rubel dived to his left and snapped a sharp one 362/7
    83.2 bowled him! Zaheer cleared his front foot out of the way and tried to slog towards deep midwicket, he missed and the straighter one from Shakib crashed into the stumps, well done Shakib, he now has the best match figures for a Bangladesh bowler against India 394/8

    40.5 Tamim's sent back! Kept it flat, bowled it slightly short outside off and got it to turn away, with just eight minutes left to lunch Tamim went for a needless slash through point and cover, got a thick edge and sent it straight to Dravid's palms at slip, poor shot from a batsman well set 135/5
    2.3 caught! Zaheer bowls a lovely delivery with an upright seam, pitching on a good length outside off, drawing the batsman forward, the ball holds its line and takes the outside edge as Kayes presses forward, easy catch for Karthik 8/1
    13.5 that's the end of Nafees' stay, he was squared up by a shortish ball just outside off, there was no footwork from him as he fended at the ball, the edge flies to gully where Sehwag takes a low catch to his right 47/2
    21.2 Ashraful goes, Ishant gets the movement, lands on a good length and he was looking to drive on the up, got a thick edge and Dravid at second slip dives to his left to snap a sharp chance, India strike early 79/3
    29.3 gone! Done in by the one that nipped back in, landed on a good length on the off and moved in to beat Raqibul's attempted defence off the back foot, he clearly didn't anticipate the extent of movement there, was struck on the pads and though it initially appeared that it would be going over, replays suggested it would have hit the top of middle 97/4
    45.4 gone! Done in by the googly, short of a good length on middle, he was expecting it to turn in but it shot away, went off the shoulder off the bat and it lobbed up towards silly point who took it comfortably over his head 145/6
    75.2 India have won, flighted it and he came down the track to launch it over Ojha at long-off but couldn't, the substitute fielder dived forward to complete a good catch and seal victory 301/10
    52.5 Zaheer finally wins the duel, not the greatest of deliveries, it's short and wide and there to cut but Mahmudullah has to reach for this one, doesn't move much, gets a faint edge as he attempts the shot and Karthik takes it easily 170/7
    63.5 the googly gets him! Shahadat was clueless, turned on a good length on the off and turned in to bowl the batsman through the gate, Shahadat was playing for the turn away from him but he misread it 230/8
    67.6 he couldn't wait one ball, saw a chance with a flighted one outside off, drilled it back straight to MIshra who took a good return catch bending low 258/9
