    18.4 Oram removes Omar who walks after nicking. He attempts another cut shot, too close for that, and he nicks it behind. The openers are gone. Two new batsman in and New Zealand are slowly taking control. 62/2
    16.4 Too cute for his own comfort. Tamim tries to scoop-paddle a length-delivery on the leg side, misses. His back feet is dragged out of the crease and McCullum takes out the bails. Was he in, was he out? They refer it to upstairs and verdict is out. 55/1
    28.2 Got 'em. Aftab tries to shift gears but can't get the timing. Good length ball on off, lofted drive but gets under the ball. Manages elevation but no distance. Ball balloons up to long-on where Mark Gillespie (the substitute fielder) completes a well-judged catch over his head. He got under the ball but realised he had probably over-run it but latched on to it well in the end. Another poor shot from Aftab. Coach Dav Whatmore slaps the table in frustration 105/3
    35.1 He doesn't waste any time, cleans up Saqibul Hasan rightaway. Full, straight, on the middle stump and Saqibul drives all around it and the middle stump is pegged back. What Mikey Holding refers as , 'If you miss, I hit delivery' 127/5
    33.3 Another one goes down. It was short and outside off and it was cut past backward point. Oram gets across from deep point and fires in a direct hit. It was lethal and fatal. Bashar was caught short of the crease. 122/4
    38.2 drags it on. The seventh wicket is down. Bangladesh are fading away here. A slow off cutter, outside off stump, Ashraful shapes to late-cut it , the ball breaks in, collides with the edge and rushes on to the stumps. 129/7
    35.6 Another one. Bond has the licence to kill. Pitched on off and hit off. Fab delivery. Rahim pushes inside the line and the off stump has been disturbed. 127/6
    42.1 Another batsman falls, chopping it on to the off stump. Offcutter that landed outside off stump and broke in, Mortaza pushed at it, bat away from the body, and got a fatal inside-edge. 140/8
    not out
    42.3 Styris picks his fourth wicket. Full and outside off stump, Razzak goes for a lofted drive but ends up ballooning it over mid-off. Mark Gillespie, the sub, moves across to take it. 140/9
    48.3 That's the end. Oram removes Rasel with a yorker. Rasel drives all over it and the leg stump is pegged back. But it was a pretty handy partnership. 34 runs. 174/10
