    63 Fulton lapses in concentration and pays with his wicket! Short ball outside off and Fulton rocks back and slams it straight to cover, could have put that anywhere but instead departs just before tea shaking his head after missing out on a potential ton. Delight for Nasir and Mushfiqur as their gamble pays off handsomely 183/2
    22.4 and out of nowhere Gazi strikes! Rutherford didn't move the feet much and looked to launch it over mid-off but it skewed off the outer edge to Razzak at mid-off. Rutherford throws away a good start on a placid pitch and the hosts are ecstatic 57/1
    88.2 the centurion is gone and Bangladesh remove the key wicket in the penultimate over before stumps! It was nicely flighted on middle and leg and turned past the defence to strike the back leg plumb in front of middle. Well played knock but he will be disappointed to fall at this stage. The penultimate over before tea saw Fulton go and now before stumps it is Williamson who departs 276/4
    79.4 Razzak strikes a timely blow before the new ball is due! Full on middle and leg, Taylor didn't get on top of it as he tried to clip to leg which resulted in a leading edge which ballooned to the man at cover who took a dolly 244/3
    89.5 Bangladesh have hit back hard at the end of the day! McCullum went back to a full ball on middle and tried to work it across the line, missed and was struck plumb in front as Razzak grabs his second to restore his side's fortunes 280/5
    91 short ball on the middle and leg. Martin looks to pull it and assert his authority on the bowler. He only manages to get some glove on the ball as it finds its way into the keeper's gloves and the terrific time for Bangladesh continues as they keep making the inroads into the batting order 282/6
    91.3 now that's a perfect dismissal of a left arm spinner. Razzaq pitches it outside the off stump, enough to lure Anderson into the defensive stroke and induces the outside edge. Nasir Hossain at first slip dives to his right and makes the catch look very easy 282/7
    157.1 good length ball outside the off stump. Watling comes forward and looks to defend it. Mominul, the only bowler getting turn today, gets one to turn past the outside edge of the batsman. Rahim whips the bails off. There is a delay because the third umpire wants to be absolutely sure before switching the red light. He does, much to the delight of the crowd and the innings comes to an end 469/10
    113 and that's the wicket that Bangladesh were looking for! A similar delivery to the last ball. This time, Bracewell, somehow, thinks that there is need to be cheeky as he looks to paddle it from outside the off stump. He misses and is castled. Quite needless and he might be in for some words from his mates in the dressing room 339/8
    115.2 fuller ball outside the off stump. Ish Sodhi, plays for the turn and doesn't get any. To his horror, he finds at the last moment that the ball is coming in with the arm and hits him in front of the middle and leg stump. There's no way you are going to survive that as a batsman. It hardly took two seconds for the umpire to raise the dreaded finger 342/9

    0.1 what a day for Boult! Scores a fifty and now gets a wicket in the very first over he bowls. He gets the line closer to off stump. Tamim drives and gets an outside edge to gully. Williamson dives to his right and takes the catch 1/1
    3.3 and that's a wicket this time around! Bracewell gets the ball to move back in when the batsman is playing for the away movement. He gets hit on the front pad, right in front of middle and off. That let off of a no-ball hasn't accounted for much. Good bowling by Bracewell! 8/2
    38.2 maiden Test ton for Mominul is followed by a maiden Test scalp for Anderson! Short and horribly wide outside off and Marshall didn't move the feet, just stretched the hands and could only get a thick toe edge through to the keeper 134/3
    93 Mominul has to go after a wonderful knock, Anderson pushed it through full on middle, Mominul shuffled forward and tried to flick it away but missed, struck very low in front of middle and leg and debutant umpire S Ravi had no hesitation in raising the finger. A very impressive knock after coming into a tricky situation which has kept his team on, at the least, even terms in this Test 301/5
    57 and now Shakib is gone! Another ball which Shakib looked to cut but this bounced more than he expected and got a thick top edge which Watling did well to hold on to as Williamson's golden arm strikes again 180/4
    93.5 brilliant slip catch from Taylor sends Mushfiqur back and Bangladesh's established batsmen are both back in the pavilion! It was shaping away outside off and Mushfiqur prodded at it and it flew low to the right of Taylor who dived and held on inches above the grass 301/6
    112.1 Sodhi comes back on and secures his maiden Test scalp! A short ball which came on quicker and bounced on Nasir, top edged the attempted pull and Williamson took a good catch running back from mid-on. Not the smartest shot with only 4 overs left 371/7
    not out
    120.4 fuller ball on the off stump and coming in. Razzak with his pronounced front foot plonk is a sitting duck when the ball moves in and misses the bat. There was no doubt that the ball would've gone on to hit the stumps. He must be thinking about his bowling now, with the pitch opening up. 387/8
    146 short ball on the middle and off. Robiul looks to pull and gets a top edge that is taken easily by Taylor running backwards from first slip 492/9
    148.5 fuller ball outside the off stump. Rubel looks for the lofted drive and gets an outside edge that Taylor snaffles up at first slip. 501/10

    57 plumb in front! Fulton got down to sweep on off and it turned past the bat and struck him shin high right in front of the stumps. First wicket of the day 149/2
    15.5 fuller ball pitching outside the off stump. Rutherford wants to push it to the leg side and is caught napping as the ball straightens and hits him flush in front of the middle stump. Rahim is animated as he is sure that the bowling change has worked like magic. It has 48/1
    74.1 Williamson is gone due to a freakish catch! Short ball on middle and he rocks back to pull, Anamul Haque at short leg tries to jump and evade the ball and instead the fierce pull lodges between his legs and he manages to claim it with his hands before it drops out! Williamson's sizeable runs tally in this Test is cut short 200/3
    not out
    82.5 cleaned out! backs away to a fullish ball on middle and leg and it stays a touch low as McCullum tried to cut but saw the ball sneak under the bat 250/4
    84.2 plumb in front! Gazi slides this onto middle from around the wicket and Anderson shuffled across on the crease to work it away. He missed and paid the price 260/5
    84.3 Watling is the new man in...and out he goes! Propped forward first ball and was taken aback by the bounce, a thin edge as he tried to get the bat out of the way. It reared into Mushfiqur's throat area but he somehow managed to take the ball after a couple of bobbles before going down on his haunches 260/6
    84.4 hat-trick! And what a ball again! This is a beauty of an arm ball which skids away from Bracewell who is stuck on the crease as he prods at it, gets a thin edge which actually clips Mushfiqur's pad and pops high in the air only for Shakib at first slip to dive forward and take the catch one-handed centimetres off the ground in a brilliant effort 260/7
