    32.6 run-out, slower one down the leg side, Tamim tries to work it fine but doesn't make contact, the keeper fumbles and Tamim calls for the single but is sent back by Shakib, the hesitation gives Taylor time to recover, collect and throw down the stumps at the striker's end to find Tamim miles short of his ground 155/3
    15.1 run-out, Just as I said that a wicket has fallen. Pushed off the front foot to midwicket or just wide of him, Junaid called for a single but was sent back after he had covered enough ground for Chibhabha to hurl a strong throw to the wicketkeeper Taylor and take down the stumps in time, a crucial wicket, against the run of play 71/1
    25.3 slower this time and gets it to cut back in from a good length outside off, Ashraful is only half-forward and tries to defend it lethargically, makes no contact, plays inside the line and is struck plumb in front of middle and leg 110/2
    46.1 run-out, tosses it up outside off, Mushfiqur slices it behind point and takes two easily but Shakib is intent to taking three and charges down the pitch but there's no response from his partner who is ball-watching, the throw gets to the keeper who rolls the ball down to the bowler, he takes off the bails to find the Bangladesh captain well short of his ground 293/6
    42.3 finally, slower one bowled full outside off, makes room to clear mid-off but is unable to do so as Coventry, right at the circle, times his jump well to pluck it 251/4
    42.4 Chibhabha, you beauty! They've been embarrassed by those two dropped chances but this one was simply superb, restoring some lost pride, Short on the off and Naeem Islam upper-cut that in the direction of third man, Chibhabha, the fielder there, ran yards to his left and dived full length to hold on to an excellent low catch 251/5

    47.6 another run-out, the fourth of the innings, it's full and wide and Mushfiqur smashes it back towards Rainsford who palms it back onto the stumps at the non-striker's end to find Mahmudullah, who's backed up too far, short of his ground 310/7
    49.4 slower offcutter, completey deceives Enamul who is too early into the attempted pull, is beaten through the gate and the ball crashes into middle and off 319/8

    4.3 he's given him! Bowled on a length, appeared to pitch on leg and angle in towards middle, Vermeulen went for the sweep, missed and was struck in line with middle and off. The umpire raised his finger fairly quickly. Replays indicate the ball landed just marginally outside leg, a close call, that. 28/1
    6.3 bowled'im! Slower one on middle and off, Masakadza bends low to swing across the line in an attempt to clear midwicket, gets an inside edge straight into the stumps, the promising start has been laid to rest 33/2
    25.2 another promising stand comes to an end, held back the length, dropped it short, Coventry had made his mind up, came down the track and pulled it hard, got more elevation than distance and Naeem at deep midwicket held his nerve to take that comfortably just inches inside the ropes 137/5
    11.4 he's gone now! The slower one coming from the back of the hand, low full toss outside off, just pushes it through the line without and lobs it straight to Junaid Siddique placed perfectly at extra cover 62/3
    16.5 tame dismissal, that! Short of a good length on middle and off, the ball appears to stop on him just a little, not much turn there, Taylor is already committed to pushing it through the line off the front foot, lobs it straight back to the bowler who completes a good catch moving to his right 91/4
    38.5 Williams goes! Much slower through the air, varied his pace there and sucked him into the big shot with a tossed-up delivery, landed full on middle and leg, Willaims came down the track, was done in by the pace and lofted it really high, still he managed to time it reasonable well but not well enough as Mahmudullah ran a couple of yards to his left at long-on to take a well-judged catch just inside the ropes 215/6
    43.4 Shakib strikes! Fired it full on middle, Matsikenyeri struck it hard but straight back to the bowler, didn't get the desired elevation and Shakib reacted well to his right to pouch a sharp one 256/8
    39.2 gone! Those two boundaries provided just a momentary high, closer to the off stump and Utseya attempts an identical shot but doesn't get it past the keeper this time, straight to Mushfiqur who takes a low catch, the slide is on 223/7
    46.1 run-out, short on middle, pulled away towards deep midwicket, gets to the fielder on the bounce, Raqibul fires in a strong throw to the striker's end as Chigumbura attempts the second, appears to be a direct hit from the deep, Mushfiqur's hands are extremely close to the stumps and it might just be that he's knocked the stumps down before the ball made contact, it's a close call but the third umpire gives it out. It was a direct hit but Mushfiqur was too close to the stumps as the ball made contact. However, the decision's been made and Bangladesh have won 271/10
    45.4 he's given him! Chigumbura's running out of partners, round the wicket, slow through the air, pitched in line with middle and leg but didn't appear to straighten, Price went for the heave through midwicket, missed and was rapped on the pads, could have been sliding down 270/9
