    11.1 terrible mixup and Tamim can't believe what has happened, ashraful gives the charge and scoops it just over short midwicket, the throw from long-on is fired to the keeper, Ashraful isn't interested in the extra run but fails to notice that Tamim's already half way down the pitch, Tamim has no time to turn around and he gives up thanks to the accuracy of the throw 32/3
    1.2 not so sure if that was hitting the stumps, he delivers from round the wickets and gets the ball to drift away from the left-hander, Junaid gets forward and is hit on the pad but it didn't really look like hitting the offstump, no wonder Junaid was a little surprised at Doctrove's decison 9/1
    2.3 Mushfiqur completely misjudges it! Rainsford lands it on a good length on the offstump and gets it to come back in, Mushfiqur shoulders arms and expects the ball to sail over the stumps but to his horror it clips the top of the offstump, excellent delivery to square him up and it's game on already at Mirpur 10/2
    11.3 now Ashraful goes and Bangladesh are in deep trouble, Ashraful gives him the charge and tries to clear long-on but fails to get the desired elevation, the ball dips on Sibanda and he manages to hang on to it very well on the dive 33/4
    34.2 the bowling change works, Chigumbura adjusts the line closer to the offstump, the ball kicks up a bit on Shakin who shapes to cut square but he only ends up getting a thick edge to Taibu 126/7
    25.3 that run-out miss didn't cost anything at all! He slips in a quicker one and Raqibul's beaten in flight as he gets forward to drive and the ball goes through straight and hits the stumps 92/5
    26.2 Zimbabwe are clawing back and hard! Price teases him with flight and he gives him the charge and attempts to take him down town, he misses the ball completely and Taibu has the easiest of stumpings 95/6
    41.6 another direct hit! He nudges it softly towards short midwicket and attempts a risky run, Williams gathers the ball and under arms the ball directly at the non-striker's end, the third umpire takes a look 146/9
    37.4 it's that man Chigumbura again! He taps it towards square leg and sets off for a quick single, Chigumbutra gathers and in one motion effects a direct hit and Mortaza is a yard short, excellent fielding, the third umpire takes a look 132/8
    46.2 and Zimbabwe win! Mahbubul tries to launch him downtown by stepping down the track, he fails to get the elevation to clear long-on and Matsikenyeri cups it just in front of the rope 167/10
