    19.5 and that is the breakthrough! Flatter and wider from Samuels, and Shahriar's attempted cut flies firmly through to Chris Gayle at slip. That's the end of a fine innings, but the onus is now on Aftab to make his a big performance& 95/2
    4.2 poor shot. It was not nearly short enough for the pull Ashraful attempted and the ball skidded through and gave Billy Bowden one of his simpler decisions 10/1
    23.5 a soft end to a good innings. Aftab takes a step down the pitch and looks to smack Samuels over the top but it lacks real power and Chanderpaul at long on doesn't have to move to take a regulation catch 107/5
    20.3 Lazy footwork from Hasan, inside edge attempting a loose drive and the balls cannons into his off stump. "That's ****," splutters the Father of Bangladesh Cricket. He has a point 96/3
    20.4 a first-baller to follow his second baller at the weekend. Habibul only half forward and with the bat lurking behind his front pad, not much doubt that that was going on to remove his middle stump. In the space of two balls Bangladesh have gone from looking comfortable to being in the mire 96/4
    26.3 wide of off stump but Farhad attempts a shot that's part drive, part cut, and completely nothing, lacking any discernable footwork, and a big edge clatters into his stumps. "What a pony," moans Miller ... among other unprintable comments. 111/6
    not out
    31.2 oh dear, oh dear, Rafique's gone as well! Floated onto leg stump by Gayle, and a tangled sweep shot is adjudged lbw. Not utterly convinced on first viewing by that one, to be honest, but umpire Taufel had no doubts. 125/7
    34.2 What a catch! What a catch! Absolutely astonishing take from Bravo, plucked off his bootlaces, one-handed in his followthrough! Brilliantly athletic and just reward for an excellent spell. He's off on a celebratory lap of the pitch, as Bangladesh's dismal collapse continues 132/8
    40.6 fuller and wider, and out! A big swish of the bat and a thin nick through to the keeper. Enticing the drive and reaping the rewards. Brilliant stuff from Bravo, who has yet to concede a run in front of square, let alone a boundary. 151/9
    46.3 the innings ends with a diving catch. Rasel aimed to clip the ball to leg but only got a leading edge which lobbed high into the covers. It was probably Lara's catch but there was a marked lack of calling and in the end Samuels races in from backward point, diving forward full length to catch the ball a foot off the ground 161/10
