    23.1 that's the end of Tamim! He was running out of partners and so he decided to uppercut a short and wide ball outside off stump, he got a top edge that flew high in the air and towards third man, Clark ran in from the boundary and took a well-judged catch, and with that Bangladesh's fading challenge has come to an end ... 103/8
    1.6 that's a nasty delivery and Siddique's been caught! Clark banged the ball in short and it rose sharply on the left-hander, Siddique was caught in an awkward position and he fended at the ball to stop it from hitting him, the ball hit the glove and lobbed up over the wicketkeeper, White dived to his right and took the catch behind Haddin 2/1
    5.1 Ashraful takes another chance but this time he's been caught! The ball was a little wide outside off stump and Ashraful drove hard at it, he tried to hit through cover but sliced it towards point where Clarke took a sharp catch above his head, that ball was travelling fast, Ashraful's loss is a massive blow to Bangladesh's chances 13/2
    6.3 bowled him! The length wasn't short at all and the line was on middle and off, Kapali attempted to pull the ball but was in a hopeless position, the ball skidded past his bat and hit the top of off stump, he looked at the pitch on his way back but the length wasn't short enough to pull 22/3
    16.4 Shakib goes! an attempted pull balloons in the air and Michael Hussey at midwicket takes an easy catch 82/4
    18.5 Mahmudullah goes. Bowled by an incutter. on a length, he tried to defend off the front foot, went through the gap between bat and pad. Might have been an inside edge as it crashes into middle stump 96/5
    20.2 that's plumb, absolutely plumb, Hopes pitches the ball on a good length outside off stump and angles the ball into middle, Dhiman should have been playing forward and straight, instead he stays back in his crease and plays across the line, attempting to hit the ball towards midwicket, he misses and gets struck on the knee roll in front of middle 98/6
    21.4 and the fielder at short cover has taken the catch! Reza leans forward and drives a good length ball in the air towards short cover, David Hussey dives forward and takes a low catch inches off the ground, Reza hangs around for a bit perhaps wondering if the catch was clean but umpire Parker gives him out 99/7
    29.5 the quicker one has done the trick! Hussey fires in the flat and fast one, and angles it into the left-hander, Razzak is beaten for pace and the ball skids past his defences and hits off stump, that's Hussey's first one-day international wicket 125/10
