    32.4 GONE! No century here for Rahul, as he looks to slash away a ball that was a touch too full for the shot he was looking to play. Takes the outer edge - may have been a change of pace too - and drops away to Mushfiqur Rahim's right. He takes a good catch low down to his right. It's not Rahul's most fluent innings in international cricket, but the volume of runs should do his confidence a world of good. He was in control for a greater percentage while his partnership with Rohit Sharma was on, incidentally 195/2
    29.2 so much for all the talk of a double-hundred! Soumya strikes with his golden arm! Offcutter on fifth stump on a good length, Rohit mistimes a lofted drive over extra cover. Liton Das backpedals from the ring and takes a simple catch. The end of a fabulous knock and a brilliant opening stand. 180/1
    38.2 short, and he has holed out to midwicket! That cutter again from Mustafiz that does the trick. May have stuck in the pitch for a bit more than Kohli expected. He was aiming for that short boundary once again, and he placed it right down Rubel's throat. Kohli falls for the first time in six knocks without getting to at least 50! 237/3
    44.1 bobble and taken on the second attempt! Pant went for the slog sweep on a fullish length ball spinning in from fourth stump. He was going for the long boundary for the left-hander square of the wicket, didn't come close to getting enough power behind it. Mosaddek settled 15 yards in from the rope at deep backward square but produces a shaky effort reaching forward at neck height with palms facing out and fingers pointed up. It bursts through and actually deflects off his shoulder before popping up for him to take on the second effort. 277/5
    38.4 TWO IN THE OVER FOR THE FIZZ! Mashrafe wants wickets out of Mustafizur in this situation, and how well has he delivered. Angles this on a good length, and wide slip comes into play. Pandya has a tentative poke, and it goes low to the left of Soumya Sarkar, who has made no mistake 237/4
    49.3 short ball fetches another wicket for the Fizz! Bouncer at full pace at 137 kph on fifth stump, Dhoni tries to bully this over mid-on but is beaten for pace leaping on his toes, skies it over the umpire at the non-striker's end and it comes down safely into Shakib's hands jogging 20 yards left. 311/7
    47.2 slow offcutter bouncer swallows up DK! It's that rubbery wrist of the Fizz ripping across the ball to throw off Karthik's timing on a short ball angled across on a fifth stump line. He tries to muscle a pull over the ring but the ball knuckles in the air toward Mosaddek at midwicket, who backpedals left and calls off mid-on to take a simple catch five yards inside the edge of the ring. 298/6
    49.5 bouncer outside off stump left alone. Signaled a wide on the line by the umpire and they try to steal a bye. Mushfiqur underhands to Mustafizur in front of the stumps at the non-striker's end and he flicks on from a yard away with Bhuvneshwar two yards short. 314/8
    49.6 five for the Fizz! Fullish length ball angled across sixth stump at 130 kph/81 mph, Shami shuffles across to try to create an angle into the leg side but only manages to drag onto the stumps. Just three runs in the over and three wickets to match. 314/9

    9.3 GOT 'IM! Big wicket too, as Tamim Iqbal falls for the short ball follow-up by Shami. Stays rooted inside the crease as Shami pitches this further up. He plays it off the inside edge and chops it on to the stumps. Tamim was looking dangerous, and there will be no 2007 heroics from the left-hander for Bangladesh today 39/1
    15.1 half-tracker laced straight to extra cover! Very poor ball, short and wide angled across on sixth stump and going wider, sat up for Soumya to crank anywhere he wanted. He didn't keep it on the ground and didn't get the elevation either though. Kohli is standing 17 yards away on one of the used pitches on the square and latches onto this with a bunny hop reaching up at head height to his right. 7/10 on degree of difficulty coming at speed and at short range but a sitter for the Indian captain's standards. 74/2
    33.5 the change of pace foxes yet another Bangladesh batsman! Fullish length at 122 kph, offcutter angled into middle and leg stump, Shakib was backing away to create room but couldn't keep his hands back enough to wait for the pace off the ball, checks his shot and the ball balloons off somewhat of a leading edge toward Karthik on the ring at extra cover. He takes three steps in and pouches the catch at thigh height. Bangladesh's semi-final hopes have been submarined by Hardik in this chase. 179/6
    22.6 conventional sweep, but he cannot keep this down! Tossed up, and he goes for the slog sweep, but the bit of grip on this ball means it goes straight towards Shami at midwicket. Big wicket this for India to have plucked at this stage, just as the partnership was approaching fifty! 121/3
    29.4 SHORT BALL DOES THE TRICK! Pandya has two, as he digs this into the pitch, and Das takes him on with the pull, and can only get it as far as midwicket. Kohli is pumped as India make yet another inroad. The benefit of having played on this pitch only about 48 hours ago paying off with the Indians 162/4
    32.2 drag on via the offcutter! Bumrah rolls his fingers over at 119 kph getting this to land on a good length on about a fifth stump line. Mosaddek wanted to run this with an open face down to third man but he's a touch out in front of the ball not accounting for the change of pace and the ball caroms off the inside bottom edge back onto the stumps. 173/5
    43.1 GOT HIM! Fullish, and a change of pace at just 118kph. Sabbir swings free, but cannot make any contact with this. It goes on to just brush the leg stump after missing his flashing blade. That has the ring of 'game, set, match India' all over it! 245/7

    44.2 ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST! Goes for another straight thwack, but the outside edge sends it flying to the right of Dhoni, who takes it safely. Bangladesh's campaign is approaching its end, but they aren't going down without a fight here 257/8
    47.5 YORKED HIM! Full, fast, and gives no chance to Rubel Hossain. He backs away yet again, but this time the angle of the ball gives him no chance to jam the bat down in time. Bangladesh are running out of wickets, but what an absolutely fantastic rearguard action it has been since Shakib fell! 286/9
    47.6 THROUGH HIM! That's how it's done, says Jasprit Bumrah. From one exponent of great death bowling to the other! That went through Mustafizur before his bat could even contemplate its descent down to meet with the ball. Goes through between the bottom the bat and his toe, and goes on to hit the base of off-stump. 286/10
