    38.4 Shakib strikes with the arm-ball. This was angled in with some good extra bounce. Azhar shifts his balance onto the back foot in an attempt to cut it away. It was far too close to play the stroke and Azhar failed to connect. Shakib hits the top of off. His joy may translate as you miss and I hit. Azhar slams his bat on the ground as he trudges back 203/3
    17.6 Aslam has nicked off or has he?. The crowd find their voice again. Pushed through a bit outside off, spins away as well, leaving Aslam prodding. The keeper pouches it. And it is given, though there was no outside edge on that. Aslam did not review. Azhar should have insisted on the review. Actually, replays show that the ball grazed the bottom thumb on its way to Mushfiq 91/1
    21.2 bowled em! Sunny breaks into a nice, little jig. Arm-ball arrows in with the angle at 80.8ks, Hafeez skips down the track, does not meet the pitch of the ball and does not connect with his attempted big hit over the leg side. The ball slides in and crashes onto middle and leg 105/2
    39.2 two wickets in two overs. Bangladesh are clawing their way back into the contest. Haris sinks to one knee and aims for a swipe across the line, slices it high into the air behind the wicket. Mushfiq follows the ball, moves to his left and swallows it. He was hoodwinked by a slower one 207/4
    40.5 how soft was that? Slower through the air from Shakib, stops on Rizwan who aims to flick it away. But he can only lob it back to the bowler. Make that three wickets in three overs for Bangladesh 213/5
    43.1 Crude slog from Fawad, superb take from Nasir. It had Mash applauding. Length-ball, Alam goes low to swipe it away, does so though without much power. Nasir runs across to his left from deep square leg, completes the catch and tumbles! 224/6
    47.3 Rubel has his hands aloft in joy. Holes out to Taskin at mid-off. This was fuller and outside off, Nasim looks to loft over the covers. End up mistiming it straight to mid-off 245/9
    45.6 Wahab picks out Mashrafe at cover. This was a length-ball outside off, Wahab backs away, drives uppishly and hits it straight to Mash, who did not even budge 243/7
    46.4 A huge mix-up and Umar Gul gone for a duck on his return to international cricket. He hangs back and pushes it to short cover. Shakib collects the ball quickly and throws it to the bowlers'. Sunny gathers it and flicks it onto the stumps. Gul is well short after a communication breakdown 244/8
    not out
    48.6 Now, Pakistan have been bowled out for 250. This was fired at 92.5ks, Junaid attempts a dinky reverse-sweep but does not connect with it. This darter clatters into middle and leg 250/10
