1.1

Ntini to Nazimuddin, OUT, loud appeal and given! full and drifting in on the pads, Nazimuddin shuffles just a touch, tries to work it to the on side, is a little late getting his bat down, strikes him in front of leg stump

Nazimuddin lbw b Ntini 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 8/1   Tamim Iqbal 8* (6b 2x4)   M Ntini 0.1-0-0-1

2.1

Pollock to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, rush of blood but it doesn't pay off, Tamim advances down the track after backing away to the leg side, tries to loft over mid-off but the doesnt get the distance and elevation, Smith runs backwards and takes it easily

Tamim Iqbal c Smith b Pollock 8 (9m 7b 2x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Bangladesh 24/2   Aftab Ahmed 16* (5b 1x4 2x6)   SM Pollock 1.1-0-8-1

2.4

Pollock to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Pollock wins this argument! good length on off stump, Ashraful goes for the loft over the bowler's head, mistimes it, gets a top edge and Smith at mid-on runs to his left and takes it

Mohammad Ashraful c Smith b Pollock 10 (3m 3b 1x4 1x6) SR: 333.33

Bangladesh 34/3   Aftab Ahmed 16* (5b 1x4 2x6)   SM Pollock 1.4-0-18-2

4.2

M Morkel to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, Timber! pacy delivery on off stump, curving in, Aftab goes for a hoick across the line, misses it completely and the off stump goes back a few yards, Bangladesh just losing the plot here, someone needs to settle down

Aftab Ahmed b M Morkel 36 (15m 14b 5x4 2x6) SR: 257.14

Bangladesh 58/4   Shakib Al Hasan 4* (1b 1x4)   M Morkel 0.2-0-4-1

7.2

van der Wath to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, superb stuff from JP Duminy! Shakib pushes it to mid-off with soft hands, sets off for a run, Duminy gathers the ball, flings himself forward and flicks it mid-air to the stumps at the non strikers end, Shakib dives but he's a couple of yards too short

Shakib Al Hasan run out 19 (22m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 135.71

Bangladesh 77/5   Alok Kapali 3* (5b)   JJ van der Wath 1.2-0-6-0

10.4

Philander to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, Stunner from Duminy. Mortaza plays another one of his tennis forehand drives - backing away to the leg-side - and ends up scooping it up over extra cover. Duminy rushes back and dives to hold on to a very difficult chance

Mashrafe Mortaza c Duminy b Philander 12 (13m 8b 0x4 2x6) SR: 150.00

Bangladesh 101/6   Alok Kapali 7* (18b)   VD Philander 1.4-0-14-1

15.3

M Morkel to Alok Kapali, OUT, Another one bites the dust. Banged in short, at the body, Kapali swivels ever so slowly and shapes for the pull shot but the ball bursts on quickly, collides with the top edge and lobs up towards de Villiers

Alok Kapali c de Villiers b M Morkel 14 (45m 35b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Bangladesh 119/7   Farhad Reza 10* (12b 1x6)   M Morkel 3.3-0-20-2

17.2

Philander to Farhad Reza, OUT, Six and then out. Again tries to flat bat a short-of-length delivery over the bowler's head, gets a top edge to mid-off where Philanders back pedals to take the catch behind his head.

Farhad Reza c Kemp b Philander 19 (24m 21b 0x4 2x6) SR: 90.47

Bangladesh 131/8   Mushfiqur Rahim 3* (2b)   VD Philander 3.2-0-21-2

18.3

van der Wath to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, short in length, on the off stump line, Rahim swat-pulls it high towards deep midwicket where Pollock moves to his left to take a smart catch

Mushfiqur Rahim c Pollock b van der Wath 4 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Bangladesh 134/9   Abdur Razzak 2* (3b)   JJ van der Wath 3.3-0-13-1

19.3

Pollock to Syed Rasel, OUT, yorker gets him. Homing in on the base of the off stump, Razzak has a stab at it but can't prevent the ball from crashing into the off stump. Bangladesh have been restricted to 144

Syed Rasel b Pollock 6 (5m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Bangladesh 144/10   Abdur Razzak 2* (6b)   SM Pollock 3.3-0-40-3
