    10.6 the short ball works and Gambhir takes a blinder by India's recent standards! Tamim's weight is forward as he pulls and can't keep it down, Gambhir has to go about two feet to his left. It's an easy catch, but going by the way India have been fielding, no catch is easy. But what an innings from Tamim, he has set it up for his side; they need to make sure they don't waste this start 80/1
    34.1 the bouncer works now, the plan works, short into the ribs, Kayes pulls, gets a top edge, and straight to Kohli at deep square leg - India pulling their way back slowly 188/4
    27.5 soft dismissal, against the run of play, Ashraful looks to run it down to third man, but the ball is pitched within the stumps and is going on with the arm, bowled him! 148/2
    29.3 run-out! direct hit! that's unfortunate because it's coming from an Indian fielder, and from the deep! But on a serious note, Shakib is too keen too early. Kayes stays back in the crease and pushes down the ground, Shakib wants two to long-on because Zaheer has to run in as it has been hit with soft hands, but Zaheer hits them direct and finds him inches short 156/3
    44.2 full, fast, furious, beats the reverse-sweep, takes the leg stump, both Bhajan and the umpire think it's lbw. Bhaj appeals, Ian Gould upholds it, then realises he is bowled, and starts scratching his hat. Quick thinking, ump 238/6
    37.6 and the pressure from Yuvraj gets him a wicket, this time Mushfiq looks to cut again and the extra bounce turns it into an uppish shot, and Jadeja holds on to a safe catch at cover-point 206/5

    7.3 bowled him, played on! The crowd can be heard in Dhaka! fuller delivery, again not much room, angling slightly outside off, Gambhir - so restrained of late - goes for the big drive, gets an inside edge, and Bangladesh can sense something special here 49/2
    3.1 he's a goner! what difference does fielding make! Sehwag punches a back-of-a-length delivery back to Razzak, runs off the misfield, and Razzak chases like a hare, and throws while off balance and finds Sehwag short. He could have dived in, but that has never been Sehwag's thing 28/1
    34.6 Shakib holds on to one this time, this one is flighted generously, Kohli - cramping - has to reach out for the drive, is not to the pitch of the ball, and ends up hitting it low and back to Shakib. Well played Kohli, Bangladesh have look-in again, just when it started to look like a cruise 203/4
    8.1 then there were three! they are all over Rasel here, ruffling his hair, this is the big one, Yuvraj. Offcutter, comes in from back of a length, and Yuvraj ends up playing inside the line of it, the off stump is disturbed. Mad scenes in the crowd 51/3

  • Dhoni calls for bowlers to lift

    MS Dhoni said the bowling needs to be better if the team is to rise to the top of the rankings

  • Kohli comes of age

    Virat Kohli threatened to go the Rohit Sharma way and waste his initial chances in a land with tough competition for middle-order spots, but his innings at Mirpur today has signalled his journey to maturity

  • Dhoni and Kohli seal comfortable win for India

    A commendable performance with the bat, followed by an inspired opening burst wasn't enough for Bangladesh to pull off a surprise win against India at the Shere Bangla National Stadium
