Mashrafe Mortaza to Sehwag, OUT, Gone! Mortaza nails Sehwag! Sehwag's disastrous recent run continues. Perfect offcutter that landed outside off stump, on a good length and cut back in. Sehwag's eyes lit up at what he perceived as width and shaped to cut it. The ball jagged back in, took the inside-edge and crashed into the furniture. Bangladesh taste first blood.

Mashrafe Mortaza to Uthappa, OUT, Mortaza you beauty! Removes Uthappa now. Full in length and outside off stump, shapes away a touch and Uthappa is sucked into a fatal drive. He drives at it, bat away from the body, and the ball goes off the edge straight to Aftab Ahmed at point. Bangladesh fielders erupt in joy and why not. India two down and struggling.
