    4.4 a massive appeal from Bumrah and Tamim has to go! He planted his front foot forward and right across his stumps and swung across the line at a good length ball, he missed and was hit flush on the pad. That looked pretty out 30/2
    3.6 caught at mid-off! The length isn't short enough again to hit across the line but Soumya tries to slog it off the front foot over midwicket, he mis-times it horribly and the ball lobs up towards Pandya who runs forward a few paces to take an easy catch. The crowd - so boisterous during those boundaries - goes silent 27/1

    9.1 caught at short fine leg! Shakib moved outside leg and got down low to slog sweep off the front foot, Ashwin followed him to cramp him for room and the ball flew off the top edge straight to Bumrah for a straightforward catch 64/3
    11.3 driven off the pads through midwicket, Mushfiqur hares back for the second and dives to make his ground, Dhoni collects and breaks the stumps but it looks like Mushfiqur's bat is in the air! His bat was well over the crease but because of his dive the bat angled upwards and was in the air when Dhoni took off the bails. Kohli was the fielder at deep midwicket. You can hear a pin drop at the Shere Bangla 75/4
    11.4 he's holed out to deep midwicket first ball! The Bangladesh captain goes. The delivery was flat and it hurried Mortaza for time as he tried to pull and clear the boundary. Kohli took the catch comfortably well in from the rope, and then performs an exaggerated strut to celebrate 75/5
