    0.1 Nerves? what nerves! good length delivery, pitched in line with the off stump and this one swung back in sharply - too good a delivery for Powell who is beaten comprehensively and the ball thuds in to the pad and that's plumb. 1/1
    15.1 and Fletcher goes! He gets a fuller delivery on the middle and leg. He attempts the same shot with which he got a six of the last Razzak over but finds Ashraful on the fence as the Powerplay restrictions are off and he has to return back to the pavilion 86/3
    3.1 cleaned up! good length and swinging in a touch. Smith has a mighty swing at it with his eyes closed. Misses the target by miles and the ball crashes into the stumps 10/2
    24.6 and that is what happens when you don't rotate the strike! Reifer pushes it to short fine-leg and wants a single. Dowlin runs across and can't beat the throw by Ashraful and at half-way stage West Indies find themselves four down 115/4
    36.6 fuller on the middle and leg. Reifer comes forward and clips it to midwicket where Shakib does no mistake and takes the catch. Reifer had a torturous stay at the wicket 188/6
    27.1 and Bernard goes exactly the same way as Fletcher went as he holes out to long-on where Ashraful takes an easy catch. West Indies in serious trouble now 124/5
    37.6 Razzak gets a gift as he bowls a full delivery by giving it a little more air as Sammy spoons it back to him and Razzak fumbles and takes it on the second attempt 190/7

    42.5 gone this time! Miller once again comes down the track and lofts the ball to deep square leg, this time Mahmudullah moves across quickly and takes a good low catch. West Indies 9 down 221/8
    46.5 stunning catch! Roach hits it into the breeze to the deep midwicket region, Tamim runs in from the deep, drives full length forward and takes it inches away from the ground and manages to hold on to the ball on the forward slide 244/9
    47.4 what a mess! Thomas clips one off the pads to deep midwicket, easy two on but Thomas slips while turning for the second. Tonge never looks up and keeps running with Thomas down at the other end, throw comes in at the keeper's end and the bails are removed with Tonge half way down the pitch 248/10

    8.2 and finally a wicket falls! Tamim takes his front foot out of the way and swings across the line. He can't keep the ball down as the fielder at mid-on, Powell, leaps and takes the catch easily. Well it is not as easy as it looks 54/1
    27.4 and there's the wicket! Roach bowls a fuller and slower delivery on the leg stump. Junaid looks to work it away and misses the line altogether as his leg stump is knocked back 133/5
    15.2 Ashraful can't have an hat-trick of half-centuries as he pokes at a delivery outside the off stump and gets an outside edge back to the keeper 83/2
    19.1 fuller outside the off stump. Raqibul lets go of a punishing drive. Reifer at cover intercepts the drive and pulls off a blinder as he takes the catch just inches off the ground. Umpires on the field decide to take the help of third umpire and after a few minutes of consultation decide that Raqibul has to trudge back. 96/3
    23.4 absolutely suicidal! Unnecessary dismissal as Shakib looks to pull it and gets a top-edge that flies to cover and Richards the substitute fielder takes the catch 128/4
    39.4 down the leg stump and Rahim looks to flick it away but does not get any part of the body or bat onto it. Sammy goes up in appeal and Umpire Duncan gives it. Bad decision that by the umpire. Rahim was looking to steal a march over the bowlers 183/6
