    44.4 and Coetzer's day out at the Saxton comes to a close as he attempts yet another heave over cow corner, but falls short of the mark as this lands at deep midwicket for a straightforward take. Exits the oval to very generous applause as he has put together the innings of his life to give Scotland a serious shot at winning this match 269/5
    2.2 and Mortaza gets a worthy reward as he nips out Calum with this length delivery that catches the leading edge of his bat as he looked to nudge it away to the leg side. Ends up popping over to the fielder inside the ring at cover for a straightforward catch 13/1
    9.5 Taskin exults in pure joy as he succeeds in getting Gardiner to slash at this back of a length outside of off, with this landing straight to the man at cover, who is able to take it on the second attempt after bobbling the initial take 38/2
    23.6 and the leggie has proven trumps for Mashrafe as he claims his first ODI wicket after Machan ends up playing this one straight back to the bowler in his follow through, who takes a simple chance 116/3
    42.5 Mommsen, looking to up the ante with a boundary hit near the end of the over, but ends up holing out at deep midwicket once the man at cow corner comes forward to claim the catch. Didn't quite get this away off the bat, but he has played a superb hand to lend support to this Coetzer classic 257/4
    48.3 slower, full delivery outside of off which Berrington ends up mishitting high in the air as the bat turned in his hands. Mushfiqur, running back and to his left, is able in the end to complete the chance after the ball swirled in the dying moments. Mushfiqur's father, who is still out there in the stands I am sure, would be proud 308/6
    48.6 slower ball outside off which is slapped straight to cover point, who takes it at head height quite comfortably. Taskin has come back really well for Bangladesh here in this over 312/7

    49.5 unbelievable catch in the deep at square-leg as Haq looks for quick runs over midwicket, but Soumya, who has already taken a couple today, comes forward before putting in a fine, forward dive to pluck this just inches from the ground. Fantastic catch, but far too late in the grand scheme of things 315/8

    31.3 Tamim looked in trouble as soon as this struck in line of the stumps. There was the initial question about inside-edge. Didn't seem keen to review it, which is usually a sign that there was no contact with the bat, but goes for it as he realises the worth of his wicket to Scotland's cause. Doesn't appear to be anything on Snicko. And it is all reds across as Tamim has to go after his fine 95. Poor review which is wasted by Bangladesh, which hopefully won't be an issue as we get into the business end of things 201/3
    1.5 definite sound off the bat as he offers up a faint tickle to this shorter one he tried to help down fine leg, with the keeper going straight up for it as soon as he completed the take. The bowler knows as well, and the umpire raises the dreaded finger as Bangaldesh are 5 for 1 early in the piece. 5/1

    23.3 you simply can't get unluckier than this. Mahmudullah has to limp off from the Saxton after getting struck full on the toe as he backed away to try and create room on the off side. The bowler saw it early enough to follow him with the delivery, with this going off the toe and then going on strike the base of the stumps right after. The angle would have suggested this was going further down leg, but such was the freak nature of this ricochet. Really, really unlucky for Mahmudullah as he nurses what could be a broken left toe. A real sandshoe crusher 144/2
    37.6 this could be a pivotal moment in this match as Mushfiqur, looking to blast some quick runs down the ground, ends up getting a bottom-edge which flies high to long on, who is able to settle under it comfortably. A valuable knock, but he will be kicking himself as there is still quite a way to go 247/4

Match Notes

  • Mortaza escapes with trimmed attack

    Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said that the decision to retain eight specialist batsmen in their line-up against Scotland was in anticipation of a top-order collapse.

  • The top-order show a Bangladesh chase needed

    Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim have been the rocks in the middle order, but it was the top-order partnership, the kind Tamim Iqbal and Mamudullah stitched together, that has been missing from Bangladesh's chases

  • Centurion Coetzer capitalises on slow start

    Although the lead up to the World Cup was not perfect for Kyle Coetzer, he found some form in the warm-ups and has scored regularly to lead Scotland's case in the tournament

  • Kyle Coetzer impresses with huge ton against Bangladesh

    Kyle Coetzer's impressive 134-ball 156 wasn't enough to help Scotland beat Bangladesh, who cruised to a six wicket win, in their World Cup 2015 Group A match played in Nelson on Wednesday.
