17.3

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, 1 leg bye, Mortaza walks to off then backs to leg, trying to make some room for himself. Gul follows the batsman really well and bangs it in short, nailing Mortaza on the helmet. That is a superb bit of bowling.

17.5

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, (no ball) 2 runs, No-ball and it's hit well through cover too. Half stop from the fielder makes sure it doesn't go away to the boundary. Free hit coming up.

Mohammad Asif to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, very very very slow from Asif who returns to the attack. That one hangs in the air an eternity before finding the base of leg stump as Mortaza walks far to the off and tries to hit that over leg. That's a bit of a mess for the batsman.

Mashrafe Mortaza b Mohammad Asif 11 (14m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Bangladesh 137/8   Mashrafe Mortaza 11 (14b)
