    22.3 and that's the end of that! flat and on the middle and off stump line, Richards pushes forward and drives it straight back to the bowler. Simple catch held and a neat innings from Richards comes to a tame end. 104/2
    12.6 on the leg stump and Phillips goes for the lofted shot on the leg side as Tamim comes running in from deep midwicket and completes the catch. Shahadat will be the happiest person around 60/1
    76.1 a brilliant catch cuts short a deserving century! Shakib tosses it up and Dowlin stays at the crease and tries to scoop it over cover, he almost gets enough elevation but an alert Tamim leaps up, cups it and falls backwards, had Dowling chipped down the track he would have cleared the infield 237/10
    22.5 Mahmudullah strikes again! another caught and bowled! flat delivery outside the off stump and Hinds drives off the front-foot, fails to keep it down. Mahmudullah dives across to his right and takes a good low catch. 106/3
    26.6 on the off stump and straightening. Hits Reifer flush on the pads and it's an easy decision for the umpire 114/4
    43.2 very soft dismissal indeed! Shakib drops the ball a bit short outside off and Bernard tries to clear point but he ends up slicing it straight to Ashraful in that position, who cups it comfortably. Catching practice for Ash 157/5
    44.1 that was quite adjacent, the ball lands bang on the middle stump line and straightens, Sammy prods forward tentatively, fails to get the bat behind the line and Asoka de Silva is convinced 158/6
    44.6 rush of blood! Enamul flights it outside off and Walton gets to the pitch of the ball but tries to whip him against the turn, he tries to clear mid-on but messes it up and finds Ashraful who takes yet another sitter 160/7
    70.3 something unusual had to happen to break the lull! Shahadat grunts as usual and Austin loses his concentration and footing as he tries to fend it to the on side, he goes too far back and ends up knocking the stumps with his back leg 219/8
    71.4 the furniture is disturbed again! Enamul fires a yorker on middle and off and Best plays all around it and the ball sneaks through the gate 220/9

    22.3 gone! Bernard gets one to swing away after pitching close to the off stump line. Tamim has a poke at it and the edge goes straight to the keeper 75/3
    6.5 Sammy lands it a touch wide outside off and forces Kayes to play at it, the ball moves away slightly off the seam and takes a thin outside edge to the keeper 26/1
    13.4 Roach removes the night watchman! short delivery, drifting down the leg side - Enamul Haque tries to turn it away but only manages a faint edge. Walton skips across, dives full length to his left and takes a sharp catch. 51/2
    23.1 and he strikes first ball! tossed up outside the off stump, Siddique pushes at it away from his body - expecting the ball to turn across him but it does not and the ball clips the inside edge, hits his boot and runs on to the stumps 77/4
    51.6 got'm! follows it up with a fuller length delivery outside the off stump, the sucker-ball as they call it. Raqibul drives away from him body and ends up with a thick edge which goes straight to the keeper. Brilliant stuff from Roach 150/6
    33.2 short outside the off stump. Ashraful does not get enough bat on the intended drive to cover as he gets a top edge that's caught by the point fielder 106/5
    55.1 Roach strikes again! short delivery outside the off stump, Shakib goes for the pull but the shot is not timed well enough and the ball balloons up towards short midwicket. Austin moves across and nicely settles under it. Bangladesh 7 down. 157/7
    73.3 excellent strategy by Roach! He follows up two consecutive bouncers with a full delivery and induces a mistake, Mushfiqur chases it and gets a thick edge to the keeper, easy catch 219/8
    79.5 another bouncer fetches Roach a wicket, the ball rushes onto Mahmudullah as he tries to hook, he has a split second to decide what to play and he gets a tame top edge to fine leg 232/10
    75.1 That's five for Roach! You can't blame Shahadat for that shot because the delivery was just too good, the ball rises up to his body and he tries to withdraw his bat but the ball hurries onto him and lobs up to Richards at second slip, he also sook his eyes off the ball 223/9

    7.4 the finger goes up immediately, the ball lands on middle and leg and straightens a bit, Richards is trapped on the sweep and Tony Hill gives him out, didn't look plumb but it may have clipped the leg stump 20/1
    30.1 gone! Phillips throws his wicket away! slightly short and on the pad, Phillips nicely lofts it straight down the throat of Ashraful at deep backward square leg. 72/2
    41.5 poor decision by the umpire Hill. Enamul pitches it outside off and is getting it to turn away. Dowlin comes forward and offers pad as the first line of defence and as is his wont, Rahim appeals. Hill does not waste time in giving the decision 110/5
    34.6 Hinds departs! slightly short and turning across from outside the leg stump, Hinds goes for the sweep and the ball pops up on the leg side. Keeper fails to take it cleanly but the ball rebounds straight to Mahmudullah at leg slip. 84/3
    39.4 flat delivery on the off stump line, Reifer gets a good stride in and is hit full on the pad. Loud appeal and umpire Tony Hill raises his finger. Finally Reifer's struggle comes to an end. 95/4
    67.3 and gone! fuller length delivery on the middle and off stump line and turning away sharply, Bernard once again steps out but this time he fails to make contact and is comprehensively stumped. 201/9
    57.2 Sammy cannot comprehend what he has done, he eyes a boundary over midwicket and he shapes to pull it away but the ball perhaps wasn't short enough to pull, he goes through with the shot and fails to clear Raqibul at short midwicket who cups it over his head 166/6
    58.2 that's a double breakthrough for Bangladesh, Shakib tosses it up outside off and invites the drive, Walton reaches out but the ball flies off the bottom of the bat and Mahmudullah cups it over his head at second slip, that additional slip has done the trick 167/7
    64.2 terrible shot really, sudden rush of blood there as Austin tries to pull, he goes right back at the crease, gets a tame top edge and Tamim runs backwards from short mid-on and makes it look fairly easy 187/8
    70.5 all over! wide delivery down the leg side, Best looks to sweep it fine and is caught down the leg side. Looks like the ball brushed the glove and it was a good take from Rahim who had to move across to his left. 209/10

    11.5 that's a double breakthrough for West Indies, Sammy bowls a very teasing line outside off, forces Tamim forward and he manages a very thin edge to Walton, everyone knew it and the umpire raised the finger immediately, very similar to his first innings dismissal 29/2
    10.3 Roach strikes! short of a good length delivery, angling away from the left-hander. Kayes pushes at it and ends up with a thick edge. For a second it looked as if the ball will go over the slip cordon but Sammy at second slip jumps high in the air and takes it cleanly. Brilliant catch. 27/1
    17.4 West Indies breathe fire! Sammy pitches it up on middle and off, Junaid Siddique plays down the wrong line and gets a thick leading edge which travels low to Reifer at first slip, he falls to his right and cups it comfortably, Bangladesh are in need of urgent repair work here 49/3
    45.6 Raqibul fails to see his team through but he's done his job! He leans forward to drive straight but he ends up spooning it back to Sammy who juggles and takes the catch in the second attempt 173/5
    21.4 Sammy is the toast of the town, he lands it on the corridor of uncertainty outside off, Ashraful is totally at sea and he doesn't know whether to play or leave it, the ball deviates as it passes him and Walton goes up in arms immediately, umpire Hill shakes his head, Ashraful doesn't even look at the umpire and Sammy slips during his celebrations. What on earth was Sammy trying to do? Only he knows, anyway he's taken the wicket and his ankle's safe 67/4

    53.4 almost an action replay of raqibul's dismissal, Rahim spoons a full delivery back to the bowler and Sammy takes it in the second attempt, he takes five, kisses the ball and acknowledges the cheers from the very sparse crowd 201/6
