    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
