    83.2 taken at midwicket! Tries to go for a big shot once again, but this time the slog finds the diving fielder. It was pitched outside off again, and Brathwaite tried to use the spin once more to fetch four runs. Big wicket! 247/4
    8.1 full on leg stump, and Smith mistimes the flick down the leg side. Takes the bat's outside edge, and pops up in the air. Short leg races backwards - with his helmet still on - and takes a catch from over his shoulder 9/1
    24.3 that looks plumb, and yep, S Ravi raises the finger. They contemplate the review, but this one will be futile. And rightfully, Powell walks off. Comes on with the arm as he slides it in with a round-arm action from wide of the crease and pins him in front of middle 59/2
    57.2 is that caught?! Hope's walking but the umpire will have a second look for sure. Full outside off, and the ball spun slightly away from Hope's attempted defense. Takes some extra bounce, hits him flush on the glove, and the ball goes towards silly point. There's no fielder there, so the keeper must run diagonally to his right, and he somehow manages to pocket this catch at full stretch to send the dangerous batsman back 138/3
    94.5 now has he nicked off there? Yup, he has. No maiden Test ton for Hetmyer as he can't get the bat out of the way of this short one outside off. An excellent line, too, as he's forced to stick his bat at it. Gets a clear edge that's taken by the keeper 297/5
    98.1 seemed close and given by umpire S Ravi. Chase contemplates the review with his partner and he goes for it. Could the angle have been too sharp? Let's see. Nothing on Ultra Edge as he tries to flick from off the pads. The ball thuds into the pad, might just take out enough of leg. Hitting the whole of leg stump, in fact. So review lost, and an early departure for Chase. West Indies six down 302/6
    105.3 ah, gone! A bit of a juggle but a tame dismissal in the end. Full marks to the bowler, though. Slowing it through the air and looping it up to lure him forward. The angle makes it tempting for the batsman to flick against the line, and the ball spins away to grab the leading edge and lob to cover where Mehidy juggles and tumbles as he completes the catch at above chest height 318/7
    not out
    106.3 got him? Seems to have got an inside edge on the forward defence and it's lobbed up for short leg who takes an easy catch. He has reviewed it will not be overturned. Front on, it looked like it was only bat hitting pad as he pushed forward. But the ball has brushed glove on the way to the pad and he's gone. Nice loopy, dipping delivery drawing him forward and turning a long way. Keemo Paul hadn't been in a good position for a single ball he faced. His innings ends abruptly 319/8
    106.4 ...and he'll get it! Fourth five wicket haul for Mehidy in Tests. Angles on in at leg stump. Cummins follows the line and is beaten comprehensively on the outside edge. The ball catches his back thigh right in front of middle stump and there's little doubt about this 319/9
    111.6 inside edge onto the stumps. A full pace length ball just outside off, with the seam pointed inwards. Angled bat from the No. 11 allows a contact with the edge because of that seam movement and he chops it on 354/10

    36.3 knocked the top of off! Keemo Paul's angle kept Tamim guessing, now it's keeping him in the dressing room. Slanted in at the stumps and Tamim is unsure about its direction. Gets on the front foot and blocks inside the line. It zips past the outside edge and bang goes the stump that gives Keemo Paul his first Test wicket. 140kph, that ball. 117/5
    6.3 Gabriel belts out an appeal and S Ravi upholds the appeal. Pretty plumb. Good stuff from the big fast bowler. Angles in a length ball from wide of the crease and tempts him to flick across the line. Fails to put bat to ball and gets pinned in front of middle and leg 20/1
    6.5 that's two now. Double strike from Gabriel. Mominul does not learn from the previous dismissal and attempts to close the face against the angle to get a leading edge to gully. A two-ball duck 20/2
    23.1 got him! Holder's ploy and persistence have resulted in exactly what he was counting on - a loose shot by one of these left handers. And there have been a few lately. Short of a length ball curves in at Shakib who is back for the cut, which he connected nicely last over. This time, he's playing on his first judgement of line. Hasn't accounted for the swing and he's chopped it on 79/3
    23.3 won't get away this time! He's been done by his own technique adjustment. Perhaps the loose shots from the last Test have prompted him to shuffle and get close to off stump. But with his middle stump guard, is it necessary? Holder keeps it simple. A length ball, can't be faster than 130kph, slanted at middle stump. Mahmudullah is caught on the crease while still moving across. Plumb. Bat blocked by leg, which was pressing forward and the looking to get back and really, just a big mess of his own doing. 79/4
    40.3 steers it straight to gully! Oh Mushi Mushi Mushi. So happy and successful with the full-blooded cuts so far, has lost concentration against the steep bounce stemming from the changed bowler. Shapes to cut in the corridor, realises its getting big on him and gets tentative. A lazy jab to gully's right and the fielder there lunges low to his right to get him 128/7
    36.4 the double-wicket over trend continues! The fourth of the day, the third of this innings! Nurul goes the Mahmudullah way too. Middle stump guard, stepping into the off side and getting trapped on the move. Keemo Paul, the man with a natural outswinger, goes full and straight and catches him plumb. No question of a review...but there should have been. Replays show he was struck outside the line. 117/6
    41.4 back leg, off stump, out says the umpire. Surely they'll review this one...yes, he has. Trapped on the back foot and there's a chance this could be going over, because it's hit him on the thigh. Looks okay on line and Ultra Edge...umpire's call! Enough there to retain the decision. That's all for Mehidy. 135/8
    44.6 chopped on. Goes for an expansive punch but this one cuts in to clip the inside edge and crash into the stumps 149/9
    not out
    46.1 and that's it! Holder strikes again. Five wickets for the West Indies captain. Goes through Jayed as he tries to flick but this one's straight and quick and rips past the closed face of the bat to smash into the stumps 149/10

    8.1 or not! Sneaks through his defences! Length ball angled in at the stumps from wide of the crease. Brathwaite on the back foot is completely beaten in pace and in the end he's looking to close the face on this. It's past his bat and hits halfway up middle stump 19/1
    12.1 stumping appeal, referred upstairs. And it looks like he's gone. The foot's hanging in the air as the bails come off. Yup, he's a goner. Shakib does well to draw the batsman forward with some flight and it's on a length. Smith loosely walks forward and gets beaten on the outside edge 28/2
    18.5 comes down the ground and swipes across the line. The bails are off and we have a stumping review. Ah, this one could be close. Might be on the line. The toes are on the line and the rest of the foot isn't down entirely. Yup, given 53/3
    20.1 given. Spins back in and he's rooted to the crease as he looks to flick. S Ravi raises his finger as the ball hits him in front of middle and leg. But how much will the turn and angle play a part here? Not much, as it turns out, as it crashes into middle and leg stumps 60/4
    21.6 that's hitting him in front of middle. A blind man will give that out. Pad first as he looks to defend and crashing into middle of middle 64/5
    33.2 this looks plumb though! Hetmyer won't even bother with a chat with Chase. Length ball slanted in at the stumps and he's on the back foot instead of forward. Caught on the move, deep in the crease as he looks to flick 97/6
    39.2 bowled around the legs. Done in by lack of turn as he gets down for a sweep with the front foot across but the ball comes on with the arm and takes out the stumps 122/7
    not out
    41.6 tame dismissal! You'd think when a batsman is stepping down the track at this stage he's looking to clear the boundary or something. Instead Holder is left just feeling for a non-turner after charging down, leaving Nurul to complete a straightforward stumping 124/8
    44.1 bowled him! That's the ninth West Indies wicket, and fifth for Shakib - his 18th in Tests. Goes right past prod and taking out the stumps. Variable turn doing it again 129/9
    44.6 middle stump uprooted. A wild heave across the line and turn and again done in by lack of turn. Just comes on with the arm and takes out the stumps 129/10

    2.1 that one kept low, and Tamim is in trouble. Cuts back in from just back of a length and Tamim has his bat outside the line of the delivery. Raps him in front of middle and leg and looked pretty plumb. S Ravi upholds the appeal. Tamim reviews only to find out that the ball would've crashed into middle and leg 2/1
    11.5 got him at gully! Yet another start from Liton, yet another promise of patience, yet another loose shot. Disappointing from the opener, who was looking fluent today. Went after a length ball, the kind he's been leaving. He's not someone who usually gets a big stride in. And that is the case here. Keemo Paul has been sixth stump line with shape away and when you look to drive that line without feet, you won't have a lot of success. Edge carries straight to gully at shin height 40/2
    14.5 he's been given lbw and has reviewed it. A strange sequence this. He got on the front foot, missed a slider and was hit in front of middle stump as the ball went past the inside edge. Looked very close up front but no one seemed excited. The appeal did come eventually though and S Ravi made a slow, laboured signal for out...and he was right! Sliding straight onto hit leg stump. Mominul has played for the turn and he's gone at the stroke of tea. 52/3
    39.5 knocks his leg stump! What a ball from Holder to get his counterpart! Breaches the defences. And that looks like a bit of reverse swing too. Natural angle from around the wicket has Shakib looking to drive on the up against this length ball, through the covers by the way his bat is pointed. But the late swing has brought this back even further and zipped through the gate to make a scrumptious mess of the stumps 162/8
    18.3 gone! Shai Hope puts in a well-timed dive at midwicket to take an overhead catch. An outrageous shot, comes down the track and tries to take the aggressive route in drilling it. Doesn't bother to keep it down and chips a catch 67/4
    31.2 that's the wicket West Indies were looking for. The seniormost pair has been broken up. Cuts in off the deck and grazes the inside edge before crashing into the stumps. Rahim pays for leaving a big gap between bat and pad 121/5
    31.3 is it yesterday? Nurul, the second in a pair again. Out for a golden duck again. First ball lbw, caught on the move again. Wow. Length ball angled in at off and his front foot plonk across has cost him again. Of course, yesterday he was struck outside the line. Today, there isn't even the option to review. 121/6
    34.4 snapped at second slip by Devon Smith, who would have regretted it if he didn't take this! A big dive to his left from second slip as this was flying straight to Holder at first. But he holds on. Short ball outside off, gets too big on him as he looks to cut. A thick-ish edge and the end draws closer 138/7
    not out
    41.1 that's five and it's ten! Dead plumb. Length ball, keeping low, batsman trapped on the crease trying to defend. He's caught it on the back leg right in front of middle. No doubt about this. First ten-wicket match haul for Holder. Best figures by a West Indies captain at home. Not to mention, his third five-wicket haul in the last six innings. I believe it's also the wicket that brings his bowling average under 30. What a moment. 168/9
    41.6 and now he grabs his best bowling figures! Why not? A yorker at leg stump that's too good for No. 11. Six for 59 for Holder. Bangladesh have been cleaned up cheaply, yet again, and this is another massive win for West Indies. 168/10
