    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
    not out
    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
