    6.6 Mustafizur has got Sharma for the third time this series. A loose shot from Sharma. Just when he had looked like he was starting to pick the cutter early, he goes for a big shot to a wide length ball, which angles away to take the edge. Just not the same alertness as he has shown earlier in the day. A break in concentration. Not good news for India that the batsmen are not concentrating for long enough 39/1
    26.5 Dhawan is a touch unlucky. Nasir Hossain pulls off another stunner. Similar to the Rahane catch in the first game. This is a slower offcutter, but this is pitched halfway in the pitch, and Dhawan can hit this wherever he wants to. He chooses midwicket, looks to go over the man, but Hossain is not just a man. He is a plane. He is a bird. He is a fox who has become a tiger. He is superman. He takes the catch at short midwicket 158/3
    19.5 tries the big slog sweep, but the slowness of the wily Shakib has done him in. Kohli has not been fluent, but he needs to look at the scoreboard. The team is going at six an over. There is no need to play such expansive shots. He is too early into the slog sweep, and is beaten all ends up. Timbah 114/2
    45.2 Mustafizur is everywhere. This time he takes a superb catch off a legcutter. Think this is the first time Mortaza has bowled the slower legcutter today. Dhoni has been picking the offcutter well, but this one he doesn't and gets a massive leading edge that flies towards deep midwicket. Mustafizur comes in from the rope and dives forward to take this inches form the ground 268/5
    43.3 Rayudu is really angry. Think he will lose some of his match fee, and he will also have to do with the disappointment of having being sawn off. He moves across the stumps to look to hit it over short fine, Mortaza bowls the slower ball to beat him, and the umpire has given him out caught off the thigh pad. Ball is in Mirpur, bat is in Dhaka, but he has been given out. Rayudu really really angry. Dhoni also seen staring at the umpire 251/4
    48.4 timbah. He has defeated him completely. The ball arrives an eternity after Raina has swung across the line. Beats the slog, hits the stumps. No. 13 for Mustafizur. Equals Harris' record for 13 wickets in three matches in a series, but Harris played three matches in a five-match series. Mustafizur has done this in a three-match series 301/6

    1.6 Tucker has given him. Tamim is waiting. They are checking it for a no-ball. The pictures are not clear but he might have a bit behind the crease. The lbw call is just as close. I would go ahead and risk it by saying this would have missed the leg stump. This is bowled from round the stumps, short of a length, and seams back in to go with the angle to hit him in front of middle. Also on the knee roll so height could have been an issue too. The umpire thinks it isn't going too far, I think it is 8/1
    9.2 slower ball does it for India. Sarkar shows lack of experience. Kulkarni has been bowling slower balls almost exclusively, but he plays for a regulation delivery and toe-ends this length ball to sky this to mid-on 62/2
    21.5 misses a straight ball. lazy shot. He has just missed a straight ball. Patel bowls as usual in the late 90s, and the bat comes down late to be bowled 118/4
    18.6 how does Raina do this every time? And what a lovely catch by Dhoni. Pindrop silence inMirpur. Raina pushes one through, Rahim looks to make room and cut it between point and third man, but he has misread the length and gets a thick edge. The deflection is big but the ball has caressed into Dhoni's glove. As good as catches off spinners get 112/3
    26.3 Bangladesh have taken a risk too many. Shakib tries the slog sweep yet again, which is okay with Patel, but Raina's delivery stops a touch and gets a massive top edge. Kulkarni runs in from long-on to complete the catch 148/5
    32.5 the mute button has been hit in Mirpur once again, Binny slips in the slower offcutter, Sabbir goes for the drive, but the ball spins in, takes the inside edge before crashing into leg stump, is that the game? 197/6
    39.1 it's all over now. The last beacon of hope for Bangladesh, Nasir Hossain, is gone. He has seen Sunny is not going to be able to score runs so he knows he has to take the odd risk. He tries to chip this full ball over midwicket, but is early into the shot, and the leading edge off the carrom ball is caught at cover 216/8
    35.4 Mortaza has played eight dots before swinging off the hip. The pressure is showing as he jumps out of the crease pretty early, and Ashwin continues with a slow offbreak to beat him in the flight and turn it through the gate 205/7
    not out
    43.2 this should seal the Man-of-the-Match awards for Raina. He flights this outside off, Rubel slog-sweeps this, finds no timing or elevation and holes out to long-on. Raina's best figures 222/9
    46.6 there will be no Banglawash. Rayudu fires in a yorker, catches him on the back foot, and gets his wicket 240/10
