    24.6 Salman holes out to long-on. The innings was moving along in singles in the recent overs and he decides to up the ante but perishes in the process. It was tossed up outside off stump and Salman swung it on a bent knee to long-on. 140/3
    11.6 Sharp acrobatic catch from Rahim, the keeper. It was full, outside off stump and Akmal, rooted to the crease, drove hard and got a thick outside edge. The ball was traveling really fast to right of Rahim who dived to pluck it safely. 75/1
    12.1 Younis is run out. It spun in towards middle stump, worked to right of midwicket where Raqibul Hussai moved quickly, dived to his right to make the stop and threw at the stumps at the non-striker's ends. Razzak collected the ball in front of the stumps and broke the stumps quickly. Gone! Two in two balls. Bangladesh are getting back in to the game courtesy some fab fielding. First Rahim and now Raqibul. 75/2
    30.6 Kapali is the man of the moment. Another wicket. Big one too. Yousuf is gone. Flighted loopy delivery, turning away from Yousuf who tried to drive inside-out but hit it straight to covers. The ball dipped on him and he couldn't keep it down or get under it well enough to clear the fielder. 180/5
    30.2 Now then now then, Afridi has swung right into hands of deep midwicket. He went down on his knee and swung a full delivery straight to the fielder. 179/4
    37.1 And in the middle, Malik has been cleaned up. He was struggling out there, unable to find his timing and has finally perished. He moved outside leg stump and tried to drive inside-out a full delivery but missed it completely. 227/6
    38.1 Misbah is done in by a good off cutter from Mortaza. The ball cut in from outside off, the bat came down outside the line and caught him in front. There was some noise as the ball passed the bat, Misbah suggests it might have been inside-edge but he is gone 229/7
    38.6 Fawad Alam is done in by the slower one. He went for a slog sweep and skied it really high in the air and it came down into the hands of long-on 232/8
    39.2 The wickets are falling a heap now. Change of pace. It was slower through the air and Tanvir dragged it straight to midwicket 233/9

    12.2 Afridi loops it in the air and entices Tamim into playing the drive. Tamim is beaten by the spin and his back leg is in the air, Akmal whips the bails off in a flash. Stumped or is it caught? The official scorers say it's a catch which means he probably got a nick to it as well. Now Afridi has 18 wickets for this calendar year 49/2
    8.3 Wahab strikes in his first over. Full, outside off, shaping away, Nafees tries to drive through covers and gets a thick edge through to Akmal 35/1

    15.6 short of length, outside off, straightening a touch and a bit of bounce, Raqibul doesn't get close to the line and has a flash away from the body and it flew off the bat to Younis at a wide third slip position where he plucks a head-high catch to his left 62/3
    18.2 Afridi cleans him up with a quickish topspinner. It slid on straight and quick on the off stump line, a surprised Kapali tries to jam the bat down in a hurry but can only edge it back to his stumps. Afridi continues to impress with his variations. His bowling has got better and better these days 67/4
    26.4 Rahim holes out to long-off. Another wicket for Afridi. He tossed it up full on the off and middle line, Rahim went for an inside-out lofted drive but hit straight to Tanvir 98/5
    29.3 went for a yorker, ended up as a low full toss but that was enough to do the damage. It swung in a touch and the bat came down outside the line. Timber! 118/6
    29.6 Length delivery that straightens outside off does the trick. The feet were going no where but the bat chased the ball. Edge and gone. 118/7
    30.6 Bowled him! From round the stumps, it landed on a length outside off stump and cut in to beat the hurried prod and crashes into the leg stump. 121/8
