    8.5 chipped to midwicket. This is loose play. Inviting delivery, angled into the pads, and Liton gets carried away, goes with hard hands and doesn't bother to keep it down 16/2
    6.4 this is some beautiful bowling. He slanted the previous one across. This time it's just short of a good length, straightens down the middle and off channel. Imrul unsuspectingly has the bat hanging outside off, gets an inside edge to the keeper, who snaffles it brilliantly diving to his right 13/1
    85.4 gone! Finally a breakthrough, and it's the second new ball that does it. Full, wide, Mominul reaches out and creams a drive but does so uppishly as the ball dips and settles into the hands at point 292/4
    11.1 that's some terrible shot. On a first morning. With his team two down. A forgettable shot on debut. Reaches out to a very wide delivery, had no business playing at it, reaches out and jams the bat into the ground even as the ball flies to second slip off the outside edge 26/3

    88.6 loud appeal for leg before but a clear daylight between bat and ball as it squares him up and beats the outside edge. Or is it clear? Zimbabwe think they may have something here and review. Oh, yes, a spike on UltraEdge. He's nicked through. Great review by Zimbabwe, and a wicket towards the close of play 299/5
    121.3 loose shot outside off. Good delivery no doubt. Shortish, nips away from the corridor after inviting him to poke at it, poor from Mahmudullah who should've kept the bat inside the line. Makes the mistake of reaching out and sends a feather through to the keeper 372/6
    127.1 punched straight to point. Ariful can't get on top of this short of a length delivery and tries to open the face but the ball flies chest-high to Chari 378/7

    14.1 and gone! Taijul breaks the stubborn stand. Tosses it up outside off, forces the batsman to play at it who pushes and gets a healthy outside edge, Mehidy at first slip takes a good low catch to his right 20/1
    41.4 another ball that is straighter, and it loops up what looks like body to the short leg fielder. Bangladesh have reviewed this, though. The ball definitely hits the pad first, and as Chari looks for evasive action, does it just take the glove? Oh yes, the TV replays and UltraEdge suggest that there's just a little hint of glove along the way Big wicket this! 96/3
    28.4 gone! Big turn and bounce outside off. On a length and Tiripano unsuspectingly prods forward and promptly gets an outside edge. Snaffled by first slip 40/2
    98.1 oh, what a catch! Taijul Islam with a stunner! Flat length ball from around the wicket, Taylor senses the opportunity to go big - and who can blame him? That really was a stunner. Gets down and nails a slog. Taijul flings himself to his right full-length to snaffle a stunner over his head. Out of nowhere. How long before the rest of the Zimbabwe ship sinks? 290/7
    50.5 oh, bowled him! A non-turner from Taijul, Williams has no clue. Can't blame him entirely. Pitches on a length and the batsman is playing for the turn. Turn that is completely absent. Just goes on straight to beat the outside edge and take out off stump 129/4
    54.5 THROUGH HIM! Sikander Raza plays inside the line of this, as Taijul comes from wide of the crease and gets it to pitch on leg and straighten. He now has four wickets, and 15 for this series. He's proving to be the decisive factor on this third day, as the hosts keep pegging away! 131/5
    91.6 GONE! That's the breakthrough. He has referred it, though.The ball pitches outside off and jags back in dramatically. He hasn't gone too far forward, and there's no sign of any bat involved. It will probably stay with the on-field decision. And that is the case. Partnership of 139 runs comes to an end, and Peter Moor won't have his maiden Test century in this innings 270/6
    105.3 Taijul gets his fifth. Or has he? The umpires want to be sure. They refer it upstairs. Flicks this straight to short leg who gets down and snaffles it inches from the ground. Just inches. But good enough. Very sharp catch 304/10
    98.3 another one goes down. Two in three for Mehidy. Inviting him forward with a fuller delivery, Mavuta plays for non-existing turn and the ball clips the outside edge and sails into first slip's hands 290/8

    4.3 what a ball! This pitches on middle and straightens just a bit with the angle, and Das was looking to defend it from the correct length, but just got beaten by the shape away. It clips the top of off stump, and suddenly, Bangladesh are in a spot of bother. Effectively 228 ahead, but these two early wickets mean there's some repair work to do! 10/2
    4.1 FIRST BLOOD! Indiscreet from Kayes. It was short and wide from Jarvis, and just right for the man at the backward point fence, Mavuta. Kayes took the bait and went for a cut without getting close enough to the ball. It's a good catch in the end, as the ball was dipping all the time. Speaking of fishing, that's the first wicket Zimbabwe have caught in their net! 9/1
    5.4 ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST! It wasn't a wicket-taking ball, to be honest. Just angled across him, and he literally played it through to Chakabva. Perhaps the field placements did him in. Smart catch by the keeper as well! Bangladesh are in a bigger fix than the first innings! 10/3
    39.2 tries to repeat the stroke but this one's loopier and closer to off, not giving him enough room to free up. Miscues it off the bottom of the bat very high in the air but gets next to zero distance as Chakabva moves to his left and snaffles it 143/5
    12.1 erm, scratch that.. nobody can ave Bangladesh today, apparently. Well, certainly not if they those kind of shots. Fetches a pull to a back of a length delivery from well outside off. But it cuts into him and cramps him up a little. Can't free up entirely as a result. Sends it only as far as deep square leg. Hey, we're on track for a four-day finish! 25/4

    42.2 bowled around the legs. Ariful gets down to sweep but is done in by the line.. Pitching outside leg, landing on the rough outside the left-hander's off-stump and spinning in to crash into the stumps 151/6

    22.6 gone! Finally, Bangladesh have a breakthrough. They had to earn it, but a soft dismissal in the end. Comes forward to defend but is unable to keep it down as he spoons a catch off the inside of the bat to forward short leg who catches on 68/1
    25.4 huge shout for lbw, given by Dharmasena. Took a while to make his decision. Chari reviews. Slider into middle, Chari gets down for a paddle and gets hit on the pad as it curves in sharply enough to beat the inside of the bat. No edge. Crashing into middle and off. Review lost. another baffling stroke 70/2

    38.2 straight through his defences. Short of good length, angled in towards off but straightening prodigiously to shoot past the outside edge and take out off stump 99/3
    47.6 GONE! Poor selection of shot, as Taijul tosses this up, and Raza shapes to defend before deciding to try and drive this straight down the ground. In the process, he catches the outside part of the bat and it goes straight back to Taijul Islam. His second wicket of this innings, and seventh of this match! 120/4
    71.5 now he's gone. Yup, no doubt about it. Moor trudges off. Comes forward to defend and the ball lobs off the inside of the bat to short leg who barely clutches the chance close to his chest. End of a patient vigil from Moor 186/5
    75.2 don't know what the necessity was for that. A streaky single! When you're fighting to save a Test! Dabs this towards midwicket, just to the right of the fielder, and calls for a single. Chakabva obliges and he's so far outside his crease that Mushfiq could've run all the way to third man and still run him out. More mindlessness from Zimbabwe.. it has really cost them here. This was not an impossible task. Still isn't 199/6
    77.3 that's gone, surely. Extra bounce from Mehidy, catches the batsman off guard. Tiripano shifts back and fails to keep it down. Gets a glove to short leg. Zimbabwe sinking. Taylor can't do it alone without support 201/7
    81.2 tossed up, and he has gone for a sweep and top-edged it! It's a comfortable catch for the man at square leg. Taijul takes the catch, and that also means the Bangladesh record for most wickets in a series will stay with Miraz. Perhaps Taijul can equal him, at best! 213/8
    83.1 Jarvis is gone! It was tossed up, and sent in invitingly towards his off and middle, and Jarvis took the bait and went for a hoick straight down the ground. Ends up skewing the shot, and there's a mid-on halfway to the fence who can jog back and take an easy catch over his head. Bangladesh win this and square the series 1-1. 224/10
