    43.2 Rafique you beauty, Ganguly tries to give him the charge, Rafique drags it short, Ganguly attempts to pull but he doesn't get the elevation and hits it straight to Razzak at midwicket who takes a sharp low catch 158/6
    2.1 Gone! Mortaza nails Sehwag! Sehwag's disastrous recent run continues. Perfect offcutter that landed outside off stump, on a good length and cut back in. Sehwag's eyes lit up at what he perceived as width and shaped to cut it. The ball jagged back in, took the inside-edge and crashed into the furniture. Bangladesh taste first blood. 6/1
    6.4 Mortaza you beauty! Removes Uthappa now. Full in length and outside off stump, shapes away a touch and Uthappa is sucked into a fatal drive. He drives at it, bat away from the body, and the ball goes off the edge straight to Aftab Ahmed at point. Bangladesh fielders erupt in joy and why not. India two down and struggling. 21/2
    14.6 Razzak gets the big wicket. With an arm ball. lands on the off and middle, Tendulkar drives but is surprised as the ball comes back in. His bat comes down outside the line and he gets an inside-edge on to the top of the bat and it pops up to the 'keeper. Bangladesh are having a ball out there. Super stuff from them. 40/3
    24.1 and he strikes with his first ball! He floats that through to Dravid, pitching on middle stump and going straight through, Dravid tries to flick and misses, the ball hits the pad and after a prolonged appeal Aleem Dar raises the finger, Dravid looks unhappy but that was clipping leg stump 72/4
    42.4 huge huge wicket for Bangladesh, Yuvraj tries to play the big sweep shot but gets a top edge, the ball flies high in the air but straight to Habibul Bashar at short fine leg 157/5
    43.5 India are in shambles, Dhoni spots a shortish delivery outside off stump, decides to cut and cuts it straight to the waiting hands of Aftab Ahmed at short third man, Bangladesh are delirious in their celebrations 159/7
    44.2 and it's Harbhajan's turn to take the lonely walk back! He tries to cut a fast arm ball from off and middle stump, he misses and Razzak rattles the stumps 159/8
    45.1 jubilation for Bangladesh, Mortaza hits a perfect line and length first up, the length draws Agarkar forward and induces him to drive, the ball kisses the outside edge and Mushfiqur takes the easiest of catches behind the wicket, the Indians are dropping like flies 159/9

    13.2 Iqbal falls. Fatal poke outside off stump. But what an innings it has been. The guy has exploded into public imagination and how. A lovely probing delivery in the channel and Iqbal pokes at it and nicks it behind. 69/2
    4.2 Zaheer takes out Nafees. Lands outside off stump, cuts back in but Nafees shoulders arms. To his horror the ball bends back in to hit him in front of offstump. Would have taken out the top of the off stump. It struck him just outsisde off but there was no shot offered and hence he was given out. This game is going to be a thriller. 24/1

    15.6 Munaf strikes! That pitches just outside off stump and jags back into Aftab who tries to slog it over the leg side, he misses and gets hit on the back foot in front of middle stump, it's as plumb as can be 79/3
    38.4 Hasan is stumped. He goes down the track but is beaten in flight and by the spin. The ball brushes the back pad and rolls to Dhoni who whips the bails off in a flash. Only 29 runs to go for Bangladesh. 163/4
    42.2 stumped! Bashar gives Sehwag the charge looking to hit over the infield because mid-on was in the circle, he misses and Dhoni whips off the bails in a flash, too little and too late for India 175/5
