    30.1 and he's removed Gambhir straight away. He never looked at ease against the fast bowlers, got some runs against the spinners, but still needs some confidence ahead of tougher challenges. This one was a length ball on middle stump and rapped Gambhir, hanging in the crease, in front of middle and leg. He was quite late coming down on it, and it would have taken out middle. 158/4
    6.1 and there will be no violence from Sehwag today either! Mortaza nails him with the away swinger, short and wide outside off. It was in Sehwag's hitting area and he went for the expansive cover drive but the away swing did him in, and the faint outside edge was pouched by Rahim. 37/1
    14.4 lovely bit of bowling from Shakib! Flight outside off and turn, luring Kohli forward and breaking past his off stump. His back foot strayed out of the crease and he could not get back entirely in time. Toes on the line, bails in the air. Third umpire takes a few close looks at it and says Kohli is out. 80/2
    14.5 and he's gone first ball! All those talks of bonus points can stop for a while, since Shakib is creating a chance for Bangladesh here. Arm ball speared in on off and heading straight for leg. Rohit makes a lazy forward lunge with bat tucked behind the pad and it hits him flush in front of middle. The umpire thinks it through and rules him out. Well! 80/3
