Kulasekara to Naeem Islam, OUT, Ashraful is gone, big blow, even though only nine balls are to go, Naeem goes for the big heave, misses, Sanga fumbles as it bounces in front of him, Ashraful wants the bye, but Sanga recovers well and hits the stumps direct to find Ashraful inches short

48.6

Kulasekara to Naeem Islam, 1 run, goes back to the round-the-wicket plan to the right-hand batsman, and gives away just a single to long-off

Bangladesh 240/7   Naeem Islam 2* (3b)

49.1

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, FOUR, good effective shot, Lakmal is looking for a yorker, ends up bowling a low fulltoss, and he gets across and swipes it over midwicket

49.2

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, SIX, that's a biggie, lovely shot, they are dancing in the aisles in Dhaka, back of a length, and he sits back, waits and pulls it over the midwicket boundary

49.3

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, SIX, ho ho ho, Naeem is on fire here, he has set the crowd into a frenzy, another bouncer, and again he clears his front leg, and pulls, straighter this time, but clears long-on

49.4

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, finally gets the yorker right, but he digs it out towards cover and hares back for two, he doesn't want anyone else to take strike

49.5

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, no run, length ball, outside off, driven powerfully to sweeper-cover, refuses the single, interesting

49.6

Lakmal to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, fulltoss, high, but this time he doesn't connect well enough, yet they scamper through for two to wide of long-on

Bangladesh 260/7   Naeem Islam 22* (9b 1x4 2x6)
