    41.3 tame end to his innings! Slower ball, Porterfield gets down on one knee, goes for the paddle, mistimes it, and the top-edge is gobbled up easily by short fine leg 176/4
    25.3 tossed up, he comes out and drives towards mid-off, Saqibul dives across and gets a hand to it, batsman calls for the run, looking for his 50, Bray is struggling, it was a bad call, and finally a throw hits the stumps 92/1
    27.5 flat outside off stump, he shuffles across and flicks wide past midwicket, they run the first hard but on the second they're struggling, a good, low throw comes in from Shahadat in the deep, Rahim collects it very low in front of the stumps and just does the needful! Bangladesh have now affected two quick run outs after missing everything all morning, and Morgan's disappointing tournament continues 101/2
    33.2 good catch! Tossed up, he quickly gets into position to play the reverse sweep, connects very well off the middle of the bat, but Tamim flings himself forward at short third man and holds onto it firmly 128/3
    47.1 full toss outside off stump, slogged back over Mortaza's head, they run hard for two, huffing and puffing, a very tough call for the second, and O'Brien is caught well short of his crease 215/5
    49.3 gone! Low full toss again, just outside off stump, and he pops that up to Nafees at cover, placed their for this very delivery, to end a captain's cameo 237/7
    48.5 fired in on middle and leg, he turns it past square leg, runs one easily, but struggles coming back for the second and a good, low throw from deep midwicket accounts for him...no third umpire, just a nod of the head from Steve Bucknor 233/6

    19.6 cleaned 'em up! Tamim backs away to leg, exposing the stumps, and Johnston chases him with a yorker that he drags onto the stumps...celebrations for the Irish captain and his wards! There's that little fancy jig he does! 93/4
    6.3 first blood! Banged in short, Nafees swivels on the pull, done in by the extra bounce as the ball darts into him, gets the glove and the ball pops up for a simple catch for the 'keeper 18/1
    10.1 gone, first ball! Full, wide, Aftab leans across, chasing it, and gets a thin edge that the 'keeper, expertly chasing the ball's pattern too, snaps up! Botha! O'Brien! 45/2
    12.4 full, driven back down the track, Botha sticks his right hand out, the ball kisses his fingers, Saqibul is backing up, tries to get his bat inside the line but the ball dislodges the bail a split-second before he can get it down 48/3
    21.6 gone! Rankin bangs one short on leg stump, Ashraful moves to hook, times it beautifully off the middle of the bat, but straight down Langford-Smith's throat at fine leg, didnt have to move an inch, well placed he was! 102/5
    41.2 all over! Johnston clears up Bashar, captain to captain, with a good length delivery on off stump, that sneaks past his ugly swipe and castles him! Ireland win by 74 runs and the crown erupts! 169/10
    30.4 comeback, and how! McCallan strikes back in classical offspinner's fashion! Fingers roll over the seam, tosses it up, deceives Rahim totally in the flight, beaten by the spin and the balls sneaks through to disturb the furniture! Beauty! 131/6
    31.2 hah, caught and bowled to get rid of Mortaza! An innocuous delivery, a slow full toss, that he just tamely pushes back to the bowler! 134/7
    33.4 caught! Johnston takes it at midwicket, Langford-Smith bangs it short, Rafique moves on to the back foot and plays a feeble pull, the ball lobs towards midwicket where Johnston runs backwards to his right and takes it over his shoulder, Ireland inch closer to a famous and thoroughly well-deserved victory 138/8
    40.4 bowled! You-miss-I-hit kinda stuff! McCallan changes the pace, firing it in quicker on leg stump, Razzak exposes the stumps, swings at it, misses, and the base of leg stump is hit. Ireland one wicket away from their second win over Test-level competition 169/9
