Syed Rasel to Chigumbura, 1 run, OUT, run-out, short on middle, pulled away towards deep midwicket, gets to the fielder on the bounce, Raqibul fires in a strong throw to the striker's end as Chigumbura attempts the second, appears to be a direct hit from the deep, Mushfiqur's hands are extremely close to the stumps and it might just be that he's knocked the stumps down before the ball made contact, it's a close call but the third umpire gives it out. It was a direct hit but Mushfiqur was too close to the stumps as the ball made contact. However, the decision's been made and Bangladesh have won

E Chigumbura run out (Raqibul Hasan) 31 (32m 20b 0x4 3x6) SR: 155.00

Shakib Al Hasan to Price, OUT, he's given him! Chigumbura's running out of partners, round the wicket, slow through the air, pitched in line with middle and leg but didn't appear to straighten, Price went for the heave through midwicket, missed and was rapped on the pads, could have been sliding down

RW Price lbw b Shakib Al Hasan 5 (7m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Shakib Al Hasan to Matsikenyeri, OUT, Shakib strikes! Fired it full on middle, Matsikenyeri struck it hard but straight back to the bowler, didn't get the desired elevation and Shakib reacted well to his right to pouch a sharp one

S Matsikenyeri c & b Shakib Al Hasan 39 (73m 51b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

Nazmul Hossain to Utseya, OUT, gone! Those two boundaries provided just a momentary high, closer to the off stump and Utseya attempts an identical shot but doesn't get it past the keeper this time, straight to Mushfiqur who takes a low catch, the slide is on

P Utseya c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Nazmul Hossain 4 (2m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Enamul Haque jnr to Williams, OUT, Williams goes! Much slower through the air, varied his pace there and sucked him into the big shot with a tossed-up delivery, landed full on middle and leg, Willaims came down the track, was done in by the pace and lofted it really high, still he managed to time it reasonable well but not well enough as Mahmudullah ran a couple of yards to his left at long-on to take a well-judged catch just inside the ropes

SC Williams c Mahmudullah b Enamul Haque jnr 75 (76m 71b 6x4 0x6) SR: 105.63

Mahmudullah to Coventry, OUT, another promising stand comes to an end, held back the length, dropped it short, Coventry had made his mind up, came down the track and pulled it hard, got more elevation than distance and Naeem at deep midwicket held his nerve to take that comfortably just inches inside the ropes

CK Coventry c Naeem Islam b Mahmudullah 61 (82m 64b 2x4 3x6) SR: 95.31

Enamul Haque jnr to Taylor, OUT, tame dismissal, that! Short of a good length on middle and off, the ball appears to stop on him just a little, not much turn there, Taylor is already committed to pushing it through the line off the front foot, lobs it straight back to the bowler who completes a good catch moving to his right

BRM Taylor c & b Enamul Haque jnr 9 (19m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Nazmul Hossain to Chibhabha, OUT, he's gone now! The slower one coming from the back of the hand, low full toss outside off, just pushes it through the line without and lobs it straight to Junaid Siddique placed perfectly at extra cover

CJ Chibhabha c Junaid Siddique b Nazmul Hossain 8 (22m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Syed Rasel to Masakadza, OUT, bowled'im! Slower one on middle and off, Masakadza bends low to swing across the line in an attempt to clear midwicket, gets an inside edge straight into the stumps, the promising start has been laid to rest

H Masakadza b Syed Rasel 13 (26m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

Syed Rasel to Vermeulen, OUT, he's given him! Bowled on a length, appeared to pitch on leg and angle in towards middle, Vermeulen went for the sweep, missed and was struck in line with middle and off. The umpire raised his finger fairly quickly. Replays indicate the ball landed just marginally outside leg, a close call, that.

MA Vermeulen lbw b Syed Rasel 16 (16m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 114.28
