    2.1 and Richards throws it all away! He gets one fuller on the leg stump and is struck on the pads. It would have been going down the leg but Richards ambles and is very lazy in getting back to the crease as the throw from gully by Raqibul finds him well short 20/1
    5.6 and thats the second wicket. Shakib pitches it on the middle stump and gets it to straighten. Phillips looks to sweep it away and is struck plumb in front. Hill has no hesitation in giving it out and rightly so 33/2
    24.4 and the wheels are coming off for the West Indies. Dowlin comes forward and looks to turn it away but it takes the splice of the bat as Imrul Kayes at short leg takes an easy catch 72/4
    22.2 fuller on the middle and leg. Straightens after pitching and hits him flush on the pads and that's plumb. The umpire has no problem in declaring it out and rightly so. Bangladesh dig deeper into the line-up with the wicket 69/3
    not out
    28.3 outside the off stump and turning in. Walton is hit on the pad in the line of stumps and up goes the dreaded finger 82/5
    39.6 that's the decisive blow! He's thrown it away, bowled flat on middle and off, charges down the track and ends up slicing it straight to point in a vain attempt to clear him, poor shot that has perhaps erased any hopes of West Indies saving it 119/6
    57.2 they've broken through! Quicker through the air, played for the spin, just fraction wide of the off stump, fished for it outside off and got a thin edge straight to Mushfiqur 151/7
    63.2 he's given him! Spun in from the off stump, he was way back in the crease, played inside the line, missed and was trapped in front. Timely wicket. 164/8
    65.5 Mahmudullah gets five! Short of a length just outside off and doesn't spin as much as the batsman wanted to, a slight prod costs West Indies their ninth wicket as it takes the edge to Mushfiqur who takes it on the second attempt 172/9
    70.1 he's given him! Bangladesh have won, Mashrafe and co. charge onto the ground to celebrate only their second Test win. Tried to swing a full toss and was struck on the pads, was there an inside edge? The umpire's finger went up just as they appealed for an lbw, was out if he had missed it but we need replays to confirm. It doesn't matter, they have won. 181/10
