    34.4 Shahadat picks up his second wicket this spell, Pakistan have lost two quickly, a short ball on middle, came on to Hafeez quicker than he would have liked, got a top edge and Shafiul took a dolly at square leg 169/3
    27.5 run-out, a strong throw from Shakib at point as Hafeez played it towards him, Jamshed called for the single, the throw was a little wide but Mushfiqur gathered and took down the bails just in time, Jamshed is short of the crease 135/1
    32.5 gone, Younis has to go, Shahadat sends him back, Younis moved way too across to that good length ball on middle and tried to flick it square but closed the face too early, Razzak standing at point judged it well 160/2
    39.3 Shakib has bowled superbly this Powerplay, Umar, keen to take advantage of the field pulled in, went for the slog-sweep, got a top-edge and Razzak, running back from square leg, juggled once but kept his calm to snap it on the second attempt 192/5
    36.3 The short ball works again for Shahadat, Pakistan losing their way here, banged in short and Asad goes hard at it, went for the hook but couldn't connect well, holed out to deep square leg where Mashrafe ran across a little and judged it well 175/4
    41.2 Cleaned him up, that went on straight, what a collapse! Misbah was fooled by the straighter one and he played outside the line waiting for the turn, was stuck on the crease, landed on middle and off and bowled him through the gate, seven down now 198/7
    39.6 Is he gone? Shakib is claiming the catch, Afridi just struck it back loosely towards the bowler. Did it carry cleanly, did he drop it before taking it on the second attempt? That's what the umpires are checking. Wow. He missed it on the first attempt and got a hand to it just as it was dying down on the second; he palmed it towards Misbah, the ball ricocheted off Misbah and landed safely in Shakib's hand on the third attempt. Big wicket, the slide continues and Bangladesh, you would say, have edged ahead here. 193/6

    28.3 Tamim goes, another batsman goes trying to cut the ball, Hafeez angles that in from round the wicket, Tamim waited for it and was trying to run it past short third man, gets an inside edge onto the stumps, Pakistan have struck a crucial blow 135/4
    10.5 Nazimuddin goes, short and wide and it's slashed hard, flies off the outside edge and Umar Gul at third man back-pedals and takes it over his head, judged really well a few yards inside the ropes 45/1
    20.5 Jahrul admonishes himself for that lapse, flighted and he was tempted, bent low and tried to slog-sweep that into the stands, it went on straight, he missed and that crashed into the stumps 90/2
    22.3 too close to cut, he'd tried doing that off his first ball against Afridi as well, fired in quick from Afridi and that kept low, he was trying to cut that, misjudgement on his part there, he missed and off stump was pegged back 100/3
    48.1 bowled'im! Pakistan have won, Gul came over the wicket, bowled it on a good length and he swung mightily at that one, had no choice, got an inside edge onto the pads and then onto the stumps. The umpires want a replay to check if that was a no-ball, it wasn't. 241/10
    28.4 Bangladesh are sliding now, Mahmudullah goes! Tossed up and he shapes up to play the sweep first ball, missed, it struck him on middle and leg, it did turn down and would have slightly missed leg stump as the replays show. The umpire, however, felt otherwise 135/5
    43.3 bowled'im! Gul has fought back by castling Nasir, was fired in towards middle and leg, Nasir moved across and tried to close the face on that one, was probably done in for pace there, ricocheted off the pads onto the stumps 224/6
    44.1 Razzak has thrown it away, that was a mindless slog, tossed up on middle from round the wicket, took his left leg out of the way and tried to thrash it over deep midwicket, missed and was bowled 228/7
    44.6 bowled'im, another one goes, bowled by the doosra! Shakib is being left stranded, the crowd is stunned into silence, tossed up and Mashrafe's eyes lit up, landed on middle and spun the other way, he was looking to hit that through the line but missed, it knocked back off 230/8
    45.5 can't keep that inswinging yorker out, superb ball from Gul, that looked out to the naked eye, swung in and Shafiul was caught on the toe, would have gone on to hit middle and leg as the replay confirms, Shafiul was too late in bringing his bat down, he has to go back 235/9
