5.6 jinx! Big old jinx there from our commenters as Rohit falls to Mustafiz. I believe that was the slower ball, and Rohit walks back looking quite forlorn. He must have really thought this was in the slot. Perhaps it was, for a straight bat shot. But the lack of pace forces Rohit to lose his best chance of timing this. He loses his shape, he goes across the line, he was looking to make up for being deceived by powering the ball away. All he does though is get a toe end and the skier is well held at midwicket 42/1
    6.6 trapped him in front! It didn't seem all that threatening. Perhaps a touch quicker, and that did not allow Dhawan the time he needed to bring his bat down. He had tried to sweep the ball from the stumps, but in his eagerness, he stretched too far forward and yorked himself 45/2
    13.4 the stumps light up behind him, which means out for Kohli. Goes for a sweep to a quicker ball from Shuvagata and with him playing with only half a bat, the percetanges aren't with him. Math wins 95/3
    15.1 holes out at midwicket! He's been scratchy tonight. Changed his bat. Run down the pitch. Moved around in the crease. And here, he tries to pull a short ball and gets under it too much. Sabbir takes another good catch running in 112/4
    15.2 the outfield is his territory. That's his happy place and he has pulled off a blinder of a catch! Pandya nailed that. N-a-i-l-e-d that. The pull short was skimming away to the square leg boundary - and it was flat too. A clear measure of how much power it had. But Soumya runs to his left, dives and clings on with both hands. 112/5
    not out
    16.5 it wasn't the pitch for Yuvi, and he won't be spending too much time on it. Attempts a pull shot, connects only with his top edge and is safely caught at short fine leg. He's looked unconvincing, and has fallen to a part-time spinner. Walks off shaking his head 117/6
    19.1 no respect for those presumably very costly stumps. It's been sent cartwheeling. But hey, we like bad boys here. Mustafiz goes full and straight, Jaddu goes across the line. QED. 137/7

    7.4 stayed low for Tamim. Was perfect for Dhoni! I thought I saw Tamim make his move too early. Not that the bowler wouldn't have predicted it with him running down the track every alternative ball. This one is pushed through quicker, sneaks under the slog and into the wicketkeeper's waiting hands. And then... 55/2
    2.2 pop goes the weasel! Mithun hasn't been able to weather the pressure. And there wasn't even that much on him. It's very early in the chase, but he charges out at Ashwin. Clever bowlers know what to do when a batsman rushes madly like that. Ashwin pulls his length back and he drags the ball down the throat of long-on. Pandya takes the catch and celebrates with vigorous fist pumps! 11/1
    9.2 oooh, Dhoni goes up for a stumping and he is very quick with those. Raina fired in a quicker one down the leg side, Sabbir went for a flick and seemed to overbalance as he missed it. Both feet were in the crease.... but that is not the case when the stumps light up. Sabbir's momentum as he plays a forceful shot drags his back foot out of the crease and his front popped up in the air and that's it. They key to this was how quickly he moved down leg to collect the ball. Great reach! 69/3
    12.1 absolute gold! Bangladesh were pulling away. Shakib looked in great hitting form. Dhoni goes to Ashwin, and Ashwin produces a magical delivery. It was ever so slow. It dragged left-hander out, but made sure he couldn't reach the pitch. That meant the ball would turn, it took the outside edge and Raina was there at slip 95/5
    11.1 speared in quick and straight, Mash runs down the pitch, but makes too much room while doing so. Jadeja's darts are too quick and they go through him. Boy, Mash's a proper pinch hitter. Doesn't waste any time in the middle 87/4
    19.5 and its Jaddu again! The man who was moved from cover, their best fielder was positioned there by Dhoni and he comes into the play immediately because Mahmudullah went for a slog off a full toss! Jadeja ran in, then to his right and took the catch reverse cup! Pressure catch. And now its two off one 145/8
    17.5 full toss! What a ball to (perhaps) turn the game around! Soumya stepped beside the ball, looking for the heave down the ground. Got it a bit too high on the bat perhaps and Kohli settled under it nicely 126/6
    19.4 he's caught at deep midwicket, did they cross, with Mahmudullah be on strike? The slower ball, the short ball, the pull shot and without the pace it comes straight down Dhawan's throat 145/7
    not out
    19.6 have they run the bye? Third umpire called into play. Dhoni did not throw. He ran up to break the stumps. How fast is the cutter man? Mustafizur is out! India win! India keep their campaign alive and look at those celebrations. Kohli exults wildly. Pandya is out of breath. He is hunched over his knees after defending only 10 runs! It was a short ball outside off, wide outside off, Shuvagata can't reach it. and Bangladesh have fallen agonisingly short 145/9
