    38.5 Lazy running, may be tired, from Omar. On the middle stump line, he had attempted a slog sweep, got a edge and it ballooned towards long off. Landed in no man's land in front of Zaheer Khan. Omar turns for second run and ambles down the track. Zaheer fires in a direct hit which catches Omar short of the crease. Omar made a valuable 80. 185/3
    16.5 Mongia picks up the first wicket. Tossed-up, on the off stump line, Tamim dances down the track, doesn't quite reach the pitch and goes through with his lofted shot. The ball spins in and makes contact with the inside-half of the bat and sails straight to long on 78/1
    17.2 Powar gets rid of Bashar. Done in by the flight and the dip. He tossed it up beautifully, above the eye-level, outside off stump, Bashar comes down the track but the ball dips rapidly, turns and beats the intended lofted shot. Makes contact with the inside half of the bat, much like how Tamim fell, and gently loops up to mid on. Bashar's miserable run with the bat continues. 78/2
    40.6 beaten in the flight and stumped. Flighted delivery on the off stump and Saqibul jumped down the track, had a swing and got a inside-edge and it rolled past the stumps to Dhoni who whipped the bails off. It was referred upstairs and the verdict is .... OUT 200/4
    44.6 Ashraful perishes going for the runs. He skipped down the track and tried to swing a delivery on the middle stump line over to the on side, ball beat the bat and met the sticks. 236/5
    45.6 misses a sweep and is caught in front. It was flatter, on the middle stump line and turned slightly. Aftab went for a slog sweep, missed it completely and was struck in front of middle. 240/6
    46.6 Rafique falls off the last ball of the innings. He ran down the track and swung a low full toss down the throat of long off. Bangladesh end up with a very healthy 250. 250/7

    4.5 Got him! Plumb. It landed on a length, on the off stump line, came in and Gambhir placed his front leg across, a touch too across, and had to play around the pad. No wood on leather and he was caught dead in front. Bangladesh strike. Who will come out to bat now? 35/1
    6.6 Saqibul takes a beauty at cover. Rasel deceived Sehwag with a slower one. Fullish, on the middle and off and Sehwag again wanted to go inside out over cover, is beaten by the lack of pace and still went through with the shot. It went in the air and appeared as if it would fall short of cover but Saqibul threw himself forward and plucked the ball inches off the turf. 56/2

    9.1 Caught at short cover. It was full in length, outside off stump, stops on Yuvraj a touch and he is into his drive early. He tries to adjust by taking the bottom-hand off the handle but still can't keep the ball down. They had it perfectly planned. Slow track, the ball will hold up a touch, give him full-pitched stuff, make him drive, have a short cover and just wait for the mistake. 63/3
    20.5 Gone! Flighted delivery, outside off, Dravid leant forward, little late in doing so, the balance went awry and he went for a square-drive but was not to the pitch and ended up slicing it straight to backward point. Dravid gone for 22 and India slip further. Typical left-arm spinner's wicket on a slow track. 112/4
    28.1 Mongia is gone! Fifth wicket is down and Bangladesh are truly on top. Flighted delivery sucked Mongia into coming down the track but he couldn't reach the pitch and flicked aerialy low to midwicket. It will all hinge on Dhoni now to steer India to safety and he is fortunate to have an able partner in Karthik 144/5
