    19.6 edged and gone! pitched up and angling across, Iqbal is sucked in to the drive - a nothing shot and he ends up with a thick edge which goes straight to Reifer at first slip 45/1
    22.5 gone! good length delivery and this one nipped back in a touch, Kayes fails to pick it up and shoulders arms and the ball goes on to hit him on the pad. Looked like the ball was going to miss the off stump but umpire Ashok de Silva was convinced that it was going to clip the stump 49/2
    44.2 that does the trick! short delivery outside the off stump and Siddique goes for the pull but ends up scooping the ball straight to Dowlin at short midwicket. Soft dismissal 98/4
    36.2 lady luck finally stops smiling on Raqibul as he fails to keep the drive down. Sammy at gully bends low to his right and takes the catch. Sammy and Roach are overjoyed to see the back of Raqibul 79/3
    45.3 got'm! good length delivery in the channel outside the off stump, Ashraful goes for the drive and ends up with a thick edge straight to the keeper. Big wicket this 100/5
    51.6 short delivery, pitched outside the leg stump and coming in with the angle. Shakib picks it up late and in the end just stays there doing nothing, ball hits the forearm and goes straight to Richards at gully 121/6
    70.2 run out, Big blow! Pushed off the front foot to a slightly deepish cover, Mortaza called for a run and Mushfiqur responded but by the time the Bangladesh captain changed his mind, there was no going back for the non-striker, a nice and gentle throw to the bowler and Mushfiqur is well short 172/8
    63.1 this was only a matter of time! Full and wide, goes after it, tries to drive it through the covers, gets a thick edge straight to Phillips at gully, Roach is rewarded for his persistence 149/7
    79.1 excellent catch by the keeper! Played inside the line to that one but it moved away a hint to take the outside edge, and Walton dived to his right to pluck that with one hand, superbly done, a timely wicket and it's that man Roach again who strikes 207/9
    88.2 he's gone, Austin gets his maiden wicket in Tests! Shahadat isn't happy, tossed up outside off, goes for the slog-sweep, a thin edge through to the keeper 238/10

    5.3 trapped in front! Drifting into middle, held its line after pitching, tried to defend with bat close to pad but made contact just with the latter and was caught right in front of middle, Tony Hill's finger went up straightaway 15/1
    55.3 gone! Phillips misses out on a debut century. Length ball on the off stump, is tempted into the drive and hits it straight to a shortish cover. Raqibul's a catcher, he stayed alert and took it well 176/4
    33.5 finally they get the nightwatchman! good length delivery, in the channel outside the off stump and Austin pushes at it away from his body, ball clips the outside edge and Kayes at second slip goes low to his left and takes the catch 94/2
    48.6 And he has trapped him in front. He was trying exactly for that through the over and he got his man this time. Dowlin stretched forward to defend but the flighted delivery straightened on the middle stump line to the hit the pad. The bat was outside the line; perhaps he was thinking it would turn away. Shakib Al Hasan, the chief strike force, of Bangladesh gets an early breakthrough in the second session. Can Bangladesh build on this? 142/3
    71.5 wicket at the stroke of tea! The runs had dried up in the last few overs, and Reifer has caved in to the pressure, it was thrown up and was in the slot for the drive but it spun away to take the outside edge straight into the hands of slip 227/5
    82.4 gone! The new ball does the trick, banged in short on middle, went for the pull, didn't bounce as much as he expected, got the top edge and straight to a deep midwicket running in 267/7
    71.6 he's gone first ball! On middle and leg, the trap was set, there was a leg slip in place and Walton turns it straight to him, sharp reflexes by Shakib and a disappointing debut with the bat for Walton, Bangladesh are back! 227/6
    95.1 timber! Spun in from outside off and he played inside the line to that one to be bowled, the off stump took a beating. 307/10
    83.3 edged and gone! Rubel gets three. Good length on the off, and a hint of away movement, Miller fishes for it and gets the outside edge, Mushfiqur dives well to his right to pluck a sharp catch, the new ball has reaped results 267/8
    93.1 Roach goes! The change works, a tame dismissal really, short outside off, made room to cut but failed to keep it down, straight into the hands of point and Bangladesh have broken through 306/9

    77.6 gone! Short on the off stump and was tempted into playing the pull, struck it hard but straight down Dowlin's throat at mid-on 228/2
    28.3 finally the breakthrough! Austin tosses one up outside the off stump and Kayes drives it straight to the fielder at cover. Hard hit but soft dismissal 82/1
    86.3 edged and gone, good low catch at gully and there's a huge sigh of relief on Sammy's face. Good length just a fraction outside off, probing him, reaches forward to defend, plays slightly inside the line and it takes the edge straight to Richards who remained alert 258/3
    88.6 dragged it on, Sammy is ecstatic, short on the off, goes for the pull, the shot was on but the execution is horrendous, gets an inside edge onto the stumps 267/5
    87.1 swinging across the line and he's caught plumb in front, Ashraful's woeful run continues, angles it into the off stump and it comes back in a touch, the former Bangladesh captain tries to hoick it over square leg, misses it completely and is caught dead in front 261/4
    108.2 The first wicket of the final day, and the crucial one of Shakib, is down. It was wide outside off stump and Shakib went down on his knee but mistimed his slog to mid-off. A very simple catch as the ball ballooned off the bottom of the bat and just lobbed across to the fielder. 327/6
    119.1 Roach does it while bowling now as he bowls a scorcher this time. He bowls an inswinging yorker at some pace and Rahim is slow to spot it. He has to hear the rattle of stumps behind him. Things not going according to plan for Bangladesh 344/9
    115.6 one more goes! Roach pitches one outside off and gets it to angle in. Mahmudullah offers his front pad as a line of defence and is struck. Roach appeals and Asoka Desilva has no hesitation is giving him the slow death. Mahumudullah can consider himself unlucky as the replays show it was a marginal decision and would have been going down leg 342/7
    118.3 soft dismissal there as Mashrafe looks to flick it away and does not get enough bat on it. Roach at square leg laps up the simple offering and bursts into a laughter 344/8

    120.1 it's curtains for Rubel as he is struck in front of the stumps with a ball pitched on the middle stump and Hill has no hesitation in raising the finger. Replays show that the ball would have been going down the leg stump. Sammy gets a five-wicket haul to show for his efforts 345/10

    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

    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
