    17.4 that's a googly and he's got Masakadza, the big wicket! It was flighted outside off, Masakadza drove with a big gap between bat and pad and the ball sneaked in through that 95/2
    4.5 it's Mortaza who breaks the opening stand again! Raza chased the delivery outside off to run it down to third man but gave a simple catch to the keeper. It was short of length and shaping away further, Raza shuffled a bit towards off stump and poked to edge it to Mushfiqur 16/1
    22.5 another one for Shakib and a very good catch from Mortaza! Sibanda went back for the short ball, pulled to midwicket where Mortaza dived to his right 109/4
    20.3 oh, Shakib has struck, Taylor is bowled! Shakib slid the ball in from outside off on length, Taylor pushed it outside off but missed the ball and it hit top of off stump 108/3
    26.1 strikes on his first ball when he's back! It was a flat delivery sliding in after pitching on off, came in with the angle and went past the bat to hit him in front of middle and leg, umpire says it's out. First ODI wicket for Taijul 120/6
    25.2 that's gone through, bowled'im! Maruma went on the back foot to defend it but it was a flipper which came in, it was flat and beat the bat which came down late to hit off stump 112/5
    not out
    26.6 one more, sneaks it through the gap! Panyangara stretched forward to defend the flighted delivery that didn't turn away but came in slightly with the angle and found the gap between bat and pad to hit the stumps. Kept a little low too 120/7
    28.1 oh given lbw, one more for Taijul! It was flat and sliding in towards the stumps, the batsman went on the back foot but was hit right in front of the stumps and umpire gives it out 124/8
    28.2 oh he's got it, he's got three in three on debut, the crowd erupts, Taijul leaps in joy! Chatara went down on a knee to slog the ball on the leg side, missed it completely and the ball angled in to the off stump 124/9
    29.6 that's it, the innings has been wrapped up! Kamungozi leaned forward for the delivery outside off, it turned away and bounced enough to get the shoulder of the bat to go to first slip for an easy catch 128/10

    4.2 wide delivery outside off and he finds third man, Tamim is gone! It was full and wide outside off, Tamim swished at it without much footwork with a drive and a leading edge flew down to third man for an easy catch 18/1
    5.2 and one of them comes into play! Anamul has been squared up and the edge is safely pouched. Oddly enough the ball was rather wide outside off, but the batsman had got into an awful position. His legs went leg side, his hands pushed at the ball and Masakadza happily converted the chance at first slip 28/2
    9.6 the plan has worked! Sarkar jumps across outside off to try and tickle a short ball towards fine leg and forgets about Sikandar Raza who was lurking close-in. Chatara is overjoyed 47/3
    not out
    12.2 caught at first slip on the rebound! But before Shakib walks off, the umpire wants to take a second look at the front foot, which is completely fine. It was full and wide, teasing the batsman to play an extravagant drive. He had not covered the line, it was just his hands going at the ball and the thick edge is pouched rather well by Hami M 58/4
    18.4 caught down the leg side! It was a fuller ball and slanted down. Mushy goes for the leg glance but seems to have feathered an edge through. It's not quite clear. The umpires double-check on the front foot and it's all fine. Mushy though walked off with a shake of the head and a wry smile 93/5
