    30.1 as far as shots go, you have to say that is an absolute shocker from a senior player. Bangladesh wobbling big time. Tamim looks for a ugly slog across the line to a length delivery, only manage a top edge that was swirling in the air for a long time. Broom, running backwards from point, kept his eyes on the ball and then plucked out what could have been a toughie. He's made it look really easy in the end. 141/4
    21.2 Broom plucks out a stunning one-handed catch to break the century opening stand. NZ needed some brilliance and Broom provides it. He runs back and across to his right from short third man and grabs it, tumbling onto the ground. Kayes runs down the track, Santner pulls his length back. The batsman goes for a wild leg-side slog and ends up skying a catch. That it was a catch was down to Broom's agility 102/1
    24.5 Sabbir has been strangled down the leg side. The short ball works for Henry and NZ. Shoulder-high short ball on the leg stump or just outside, cramping the batsman for room. Sabbir attempted to glance it fine, but only ended up gloving to Ronchi. Two wickets in four overs for NZ 127/2
    26.3 Spooned to short midwicket. The short ball now gets Mahmudullah. Hip-high ball, not as threatening as the one that nabbed Sabbir. The line is outside off. He pulls in the air, probably plays early, and picks out Neesham. Mahmudullah will leave the series with scores of 0,1,3 133/3
    36.1 works this to the leg side and scoots off for the run, Ronchi runs quickly to his right, picks up the ball and flicks that underarm in one motion. Shakib, who was coasting for the run, had to suddenly hurry up, but he'd lost valuable time in between as the throw hit the stumps direct. Moments of magic like these can make a big, big difference. Bangladesh's slide continues. 168/5
    36.5 simple, simple decision for the umpire. Mosaddek plays all around a straight ball on middle. That would have crashed into the stumps. Mosaddek has a chat with his partner and then walks off without reviewing. 170/6
    49.3 excellent catch from Henry running back and across to his right. Sprawling take. Slower cutter outside off, Nurul now swings early and skews it in the air off the toe-end. Fine knock from Nurul nevertheless 235/9
    39.5 beaten by a drifter again. This one's fired in from wide of the crease, the ball spins back in a touch to beat the inside edge and crash into the stumps. Poor application and the slide continues. This has been another shocking collapse. Who would have thought spin would come back to haunt Bangladesh away from home? 179/7
    46.2 Holes out to long-off running to his left. Mashrafe charges down the track, the bowler shortens his length outside off, ensuring the batsman does not get close to the pitch. Bangladesh's captain attempts a loft and finds Patel in the deep 212/8
