    45.3 Strauss falls now, but what an innings it's been! 154 from 140 balls, he's been threatening all summer in one-day cricket, looking in sublime touch without making the big score, this time he's really done his job. In the end he sliced an attempted cover drive in the air where deep point held on 283/6
    0.4 Mashrafe strikes! Kieswetter falls again, Kieswetter bowled again! Massive start for Bangladesh! It was full and nipping back, Kieswetter as usual staying leg side of the ball an it got an inside edge and flew through a gaping space between bat and pad on to the stumps! 1/1
    40.4 good catch! Trott falls but it's been a fantastic knock, England were nervy when he came to the crease at 1 for 1, but he leaves them in utter control. It was full and Trott mowed it towards straightish midwicket where Shakib moved sharply to his right and held on to a tough chance 251/2
    40.5 oh dear! Bad luck for Wright he's sacrificed himself. Skipped outside leg stump and he had a fearful slash at it, only managed to feather a top edge through to the keeper. Unlucky for him and Mashrafe suddenly has two in two! 251/3
    43.3 good catch on the boundary at deep midwicket by Ashraful, diving forward as Collingwood heaved a low full toss in the air, Ashraful held on and Collingwood falls 272/4
    44.5 Morgan's gone now! Wickets falling quickly to make a very strange looking scorecard. Morgan tried to smash this over long on, but it was too full for him to get the elevation on the shot and it spooned to Tamim at mid on 280/5
    not out
    46.6 gone this time, wickets tumbling! Bresnan tried to smash it over long on but it was a slower ball and he couldn't time it, Tamim took the chance running in off the boundary 297/7

    2.4 gone! That's the wicket that England wanted, Tamim falls in pursuit of quick runs. It was a slower ball, very full and Tamim tried to smash it over long-off. But he just got underneath it, and the fielder at mid-off circled underneath the steepling chance. Big breakthrough for England, do Bangladesh have the fight in them to keep up the attack without their star batsman? 20/1
    4.6 Shahzad is pumped up now! It was another fiery short ball, on the off side this time and Kayes couldn't get the glove out of the way in time as the ball rose up at him. A little touch on the ball as it went through, and Kieswetter does the rest. Two down now, and one can feel the fight going from Bangladesh now. 24/2
    10.3 good catch Luke Wright! Slower ball from Bresnan, Siddique flicked it hard, looking to clear mid on but Wright moved swiftly to his left and held on to the chance above his head. Another one down for Bangladesh 64/3
    15.4 Jahurul falls! The short ball proves his undoing. Well, Jahurul has actually played the shot very well today but this time it got a bit high on his pull shot and he spooned it gently to midwicket 77/4
    18.4 oh dear. Chaos here and Shakib has gone. This looks pretty grim. It was a no ball, Ashraful worked it round the corner, scampered one, looked certain to be coming back for a second as he set off, calling Shakib though, but then Ashraful changed his mind, leaving Shakib stranded midpitch as Collingwood, on all fours, had time to take the bails off 86/5
    21.3 gone! Bopara strikes with his third ball! That was absolutely plumb, Bopara pulled the length back slightly and got the ball to jag in off the seam to strike Ashraful right infront of middle and leg. There was no issue with height, either, as the ball had kept slightly low. Oh dear. Bangladesh sink even further 102/6
    41.3 he's given him! Mahmudullah's vigil at the crease comes to an end as Yardy strikes him on the pad. Huge appeal, and the umpire gives him out lbw. Unluckily, it must be said, as the ball was sliding down the leg side. So that eighth wicket partnership record remains... 180/8
    25.6 well, good shot last ball, but an airy waft to the next one leads to his downfall. Bopara pulled the length back and also found some movement away from the bat. Mashrafe, who had been beaten several times on the cut already, finally gets bat on one, and Kieswetter clings on to the thick edge 124/7
    42.2 another one goes! Razzak slashes a full, wide ball out to Bresnan at deep cover. Just one wicket needed now 190/9
    44.6 Bopara ends the game! Shafiul almost swings himself off his feet as Bopara sends one down full and straight. His head is in the air, his eyes, presumably, closed, and he doesn't get close to it. The stumps are disturbed and that's that. 203/10
