    26.6 outside off and Tamim goes for the jugular as he lofts it up in the air as Gillespie gets under it at deep backward point and takes it comfortably 136/3
    8.6 Persistence pays. Mills kept plugging away on the middle and off line. This time pitches on the fuller length on the middle stump. Junaid lifts it high up in the air as Gillespie comes running across from mid on and takes the catch comfortably 27/1
    11.5 fuller on the off stump, Aftab moves across and lifts high in the air as he does not get enough timing and ends up holing out to mid wicket where Fulton takes an easy catch 39/2
    28.6 outside off and short in length. Ashraful throws it all away once again as he pulls to deep mid wicket where Fulton takes the offering. Ashraful played a special innings here today and lucky are those who watched it 150/4
    29.3 fuller on the off stump, Shakib goes for the drive and misses and is bowled lock stock and barrel 151/5
    32.2 short on the off stump, Mehrab steps down the track and decides to leave the ball. The ball flies off the outside edge to backward point where How grabs the offering. I can't imagine what Mehrab was thinking. Excellent stuff from Oram who's now taken three 154/7
    29.6 outside off and swinging away, gets a feather edge to McCullum as we are being witness to another of the familiar Bangladesh collapses 151/6
    40.3 Reza trying the late cut too often, perishes in the attempt also as Styris at wide first slip takes the catch easily. Sad that Bangladesh have thrown away a good start 170/8
    42.4 full toss on the middle stump. Mashrafe moves back and helps it on it's way to Oram at long off who takes a simple catch 177/9
    not out
    46.3 on the off stump, guides to point and sets off for a single as How who comes in from backward point throws the stumps down and finds Shahadat short of his crease 201/10
