    0.5 first blood! short of a good length delivery, came in with the angle, Masakadza looks to go over the top of mid-on but fails to get enough bat on it and the ball lobs up straight to Ashraful at mid-on. Nazmul strikes in the first over 2/1
    5.3 Razzaq strikes this time, another innocuous straight delivery, Vermeulen plays outside the line this time, is struck on the pad in front of off, that's the end of his stay 8/4
    1.3 gone! tossed up close to the off stump line, Taylor pushes forward and drives at it and the ball goes straight back to the bowler who makes no mistake. Zimbabwe two down in two overs. Excellent start for Bangladesh 3/2
    2.3 another one bites the dust! short of a good length delivery and this one shaped away a touch, Coventry stays back and has a prod at it, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to the keeper. Zimbabwe three down and in deep deep trouble here 4/3
    16.4 sensational catch by Nazmul, that's the seventh wicket down, length ball outside off, the batsman drives it towards cover point where Nazmul throws himself full length to his right and takes a blinder, he was parallel to the ground as he took that one 36/7
    13.3 gets a wicket with a not too threatening delivery, short and turns away, should have been put away for a boundary, instead Matsikenyeri can only slap it to backward point, where the fielder takes a smart catch diving to his left 32/5
    15.3 arm ball does the job, Zimbabwe slip further into the abyss, the batsman was looking for the turn as he defended, this one didn't spin and sneaked through the big gap between bat and pad 32/6
    17.6 oh dear! tossed up and on the stumps, Chigumbura pushes forward and drives it in the air and back towards the bowler, Enamul Haque moves across to his left, dives low and takes a superb catch. Zimbabwe 8 down - just two more to go 36/8

    18.6 nine down! fuller length delivery, fired in bit quicker this time, Price pushes forward to defend but fails to get bat on ball and the ball crashes into his toe. The angle would have take the ball towards the stumps. Not much appeal there but umpire Nadir Sha is convinced. 39/9
    24.5 that's the end of that! tossed up on the middle and off stump line, Jarvis get forward and pushes it straight back to the bowler. Shakib holds on to an easy chance and Zimbabwe are all out for 44 in 24.5 overs 44/10

    6.3 flat delivery on the middle and off stump line, Tamim goes low and sweep but fails to keep it down. Cremer at square leg drives across to his right and takes a low catch. Umpire Aleem Dar has a word with the fielder before he gives the nod 33/1
    7.4 goodness me! wide delivery outside the off stump, Siddique stretches across and needlessly pushes at it, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to Vermeulen at first slip. 36/3
    6.6 the one that goes straight on with the arm - Ashraful is clueless and the ball thuds in to the pad. Loud appeal and up goes the finger. Ashraful departs for a duck. 33/2

    9.1 Naeem departs! tossed up on the middle and leg stump line, the one that goes straight on - Naeem goes for the slog sweep and the finds the lone fielder in the deep on the leg side. That was a horrible shot to say the least - Bangladesh four down but they need just 7 more to win this one. 38/4
