    26.5 taps it straight to short leg! Oh that is soft. Loses focus with minutes left for lunch. He's been somewhat careless with the leg glance all morning, often going with hard hands, and that is what he's done again. Short of a length ball, keeps low at leg stump. He gets deep in the crease and pushes from in front of the body and it's like catching practice. Was on top of the bounce but didn't roll the wrists, and he's given it away just when he'd started to look good 105/2
    0.3 around the wicket, angling in and moving away, thin outside edge and Roach makes an early breakthrough 1/1
    59.3 and gone! Gabriel gets his first wicket, it was a length ball outside off, Mominul flashes at it, away from the body, no feet movement whatsoever, gets an outside edge and Dowrich does the rest. A loose shot overall by a set batsman 222/4
    42.3 slogs across the line and is caught by the keeper pitch side on the off side. He's lost all composure. Bishoo with the vicious drift in again. This time the ball is fuller and turning away from leg stump. He's trying to clear midwicket and has lost his shape completely 153/3
    63.5 fourth wicket for Gabriel! Suddenly, Bangladesh are in danger of getting bowled out under 275. Was a length ball from around the wicket, Shakib looked to punch it on the up, got an inside edge that disturbed the bails on its way 235/7
    59.6 length ball, coming in to the batsman after pitching, Mushfiqur was looking to force it on the off side, gets beaten is rapped on the pads. A huge lbw appeal denied but West Indies have reviewed. The bat hits the pad as the ball sneaks past, and that's plumb, would have crashed into middle and leg and that's gone 226/5
    61.5 bowled 'im! What a spell he's in. This one comes back in sharply after pitching, Mahmudullah looks to defend but it sneaks through between bat and pad, brushing the pad on its way before crashing into the stump 230/6
    72.1 bowled 'im! Pitching on leg and spinning sharply, Mehidy was looking to drive it, gets beaten and the ball hits the top of middle, that's the end of Mehidy 259/8
    92.1 wicket straight away! Gets him with the loop. Lands short of a full length as it drifts in and spins away. Means he's pushing away from the body on the drive and he edges a straightforward one to first slip. A handy innings on debut ends, but he's done more than was asked 324/9

    11.6 caught at first slip! is Shakib spewing fire after delivery? Because West Indies look genuinely afraid of getting anywhere near the ball. Another slow, loopy one at off stump. Brathwaite gets forward and pushes at it but is falling over because he isn't close. Hits the high part of the bat and gently lobs for the fielder 31/3
    10.1 Given out lbw but he's take the review after a discussion with his partner. No bat involved and I think he'll be gone here. And he is - pitched in line, straightened and beat his sweep, hitting in line. Unsuccessful review - and not just that, it's lost West Indies one. Given the way the spinners were getting the ball to turn and spit, an early wicket was always on the cards 29/1
    11.1 brilliantly done! Completely foxes Shai Hope. Lobs this up, nice and loopy outside leg stump. Hope wants to drive against the turn but is not anywhere close to the pitch of the ball. It spins past his bat and hits leg stump 30/2
    31.5 another review for lbw. Ambris is trapped on the back foot by a ball that turns in rapidly from outside off. But has it come back enough to hit him in line? It's the back pad as he is moving onto the back foot...impact umpire's call. He is marginally in line. The review stays, but Ambris' stay is done after a long struggle. 88/5
    29.1 taken at short leg. Length at leg stump, jabs at it with hard hands. Gets an inside edge onto pad and it is taken easily 77/4
    45.6 beautifully bowled That had flight, dip, turn - everything a spinner wants. Drew him forward, landed perfectly and spun just enough to take his outside edge and nestle into the keeper's gloves. The end of a fine innings. 180/6

    52.3 caught in front! Bishoo has been sweeping adventurously and it'll cost him this time. Length ball skids on and hits him in on the back thigh in front of middle stump, He was through the shot with the front leg outside leg stump 199/7
    52.6 lbw decision reviewed by Roach. Caught on the back foot against a ball spinning big and into him. He was looking to defend, but that was a long way past the inside edge. However, he is right in front middle and very deep in the crease. This is hitting leg stump. West Indies are out of reviews. Roach is gone and Nayeem is one wicket away from a debut five-for 205/8
    60.2 through the defence and that's a five-for on debut for 17-year-old Nayeem Hasan. What a match he's having. Length ball dips rapidly outside off, lands on a length and zips past the inside edge of the angled bat to hit top of middle and off. 225/9
    63.6 taken at slip. Dowrich took the gamble, it hasn't worked. To add to the statement after the six, Gabriel isn't known for playing out the last ball of an over either. Jabs at this on the front foot, it spins away, and it is straightforwad for Mahmudullah 246/10

    1.5 cleaned him up! nicely tossed up outside off, and turns appreciably to go through the big gap between pad and the airy waft of the bat. Shatters timber. West Indies are not out of this yet. 13/1
    2.4 juggled and caught in the slips but the umpires are checking to make sure. Went for the drive without moving his feet and got an outside edge. It flew quickly to first slip and the ball popped out, but he managed to grab it on second try 13/2
    6.6 drifts on the pads and given lbw. It was the drift and subsequent straightening that beat him, he was moving across to tuck it, but the ball pitches in line with leg and straightens enough to hit him. Mominul was back in his crease and after a short discussion with Mithun, opts not to review. 32/3
    14.6 he's got him! went back to a length ball, didn't seem to have a clue where it was pitching. Takes his pad flap and crashes into the stumps. Valuable mini-stand for Bangladesh, but Bishoo's strike has rendered balance back to the match 53/5
    7.5 picks out deep midwicket with a slog-sweep! That is a terrible shot by Shakib. Tossed up on off, a bit full, Shakib went for the sweep. Connected well, but there was a man back there whom he picked out almost with a pin point. Poor, poor shot from one of the most experienced batsmen in the side, and Bangladesh are in a bit of a hole now, despite that first-innings lead 35/4
    18.5 huge strike, unplayable ball short of a length, comes back in sharply to Mushfiqur. Perhaps he was expecting it to rise as much as the previous ball did, but this stays stump high, homes in between the bat and pad and hits the top of off. West Indies will fancy their chances now 69/6
    28.1 beauty! perfect leggie's dismissal. Looped up and dips, the batsman's stretched forward but can't get to the pitch of the ball, which grips the surface and turns just enough to go off the shoulder of the bat and into the keeper's gloves. Mehidy's resistance ends but it's been a good hand 106/7
    34.4 Mahmudullah pays the price for premeditation here. Fourth wicket for Bishoo. Shaped to sweep even before the bowler released, and Bishoo shortened his length accordingly, while also flattening his trajectory. Mahmudullah ends up playing a half-hearted attempted lap-sweep, and only manages a top-edge that balloons to slip 123/9
    34.2 gone, classic legspinner's dismissal. Flighted nicely outside off, inviting the drive. Doesn't get a proper stride out to the ball, and he isn't quite close enough to the pitch of the ball. Sharp turn to get the edge, and Hope takes a straightforward catch at slip, at around knee height 122/8
    35.5 and that is that. West Indies will need 204 to win. Steps out and gets nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Goes through with the big heave nonetheless, and the ball grabs the outside half of his bat and ends up in long-on's grateful hands 125/10

    5.1 gone! Taijul strikes first ball with the deadliest of arm balls. Not much Brathwaite could have done about that, though he could have played forward rather than gone back to it. The trajectory was flat, however, and it just skidded through quickly before Brathwaite could bring his bat down to keep it out. Hits him on the back pad, and the umpire has no hesitation in giving him out. They're checking if Taijul overstepped, however... He's fine, just about. Landed on his toe with his heel in the air, juuuust behind the line 11/3
    2.4 and he strikes immediately. Throws away his wicket and gifts Shakib his 200th in Tests. Down the track to a teasingly flighted ball wide of off stump, and slogs, looking for turn and looking to go over mid-on. It doesn't turn, however, and it slips past the outside edge to offer Mushfiqur the simplest of stumpings 5/1
    4.5 big appeal, and it's given! Hope stretched forward to defend but it was flat and the length was just perfect, outside off, which meant he didn't get close enough to the pitch of it. Tries to tuck his bat behind his pad and leave it, but the ball doesn't turn as much as expected, and it bounces a touch more to brush his glove through to the keeper 11/2
    35.2 got him, has he? Yes, says Richard Illingworth, and Sunil Ambris gestures immediately for a review - but West Indies have none left! Taijul has six, and Bangladesh have gone 1-0 up in the series. Flat, on a good length outside off, and sharp turn and bounce - we haven't seen that in a while. Stretches out to defend, and has that brushed his glove through to the keeper? It hasn't, according to Ultra Edge, but there's nothing Ambris can do about that 139/10
    5.5 Taijul is on fire here! Another arm ball, another batsman playing back, another ball skidding through and striking back pad. Chase has reviewed this, but it looked out on first glance. The line began straighter than the Brathwaite delivery, and it struck him in front of middle and leg. Hitting a good chunk of leg stump, says ball-tracking 11/4
    10.2 caught at long-off stepped down the track and gave himself some room. Got to the pitch of the ball and struck it well, but picked out the man at long-off perfectly. He had just been pushed back from mid-off. Brief but entertaining knock from Hetmyer ends 44/5
    13.5 big appeal for lbw, given immediately and he reviews squared him up with the turn, it pitched on middle and leg and was spinning across him. Might be missing off, or umpire's call. Ultra Edge confirms no bat, so it's down to ball tracking. And it's hitting off stump flush - three reds. Taijul has his third. West Indies are sinking at a pace that will give the Titanic a complex 51/6
    19.6 bowled through the gate gets it to drift again, across the left-hander, which tempts him into the big drive. But the ball breaks inwards, and through the big gap to clip the stumps. It was a matter of time before this happened. 69/7
    21.5 big appeal for lbw as this straightens on or just outside off stump as Roach presses forward to defend. Not given, and Bangladesh have reviewed... Came forward with bat and pad together and the ball didn't turn as much as expected. Actually, this may have straightened from middle stump rather than off as I initially assumed - looks close, this. Definitely pad first, and the bat jams into the pad. If ball-tracking is in his favour, this could be five for Taijul. It is. It's hitting middle stump three-fourths of the way up 75/8
    34.4 ooh, mishit, and that's a superb catch from Shakib at midwicket! A bit of flight on middle stump, but Warrican doesn't quite judge the length. Dips shorter than expected as he stretches out to whip it into the leg side. Bottom hand comes off the handle, and the top-edge balloons over the infield, and Shakib, turning around and running towards the boundary, judges the ball's descent perfectly. Mehidy has ended this stand at 63, and Bangladesh only need one wicket now 138/9
