    0.3 a hush falls over the Shere Bangla as Tamim departs for a duck. The ball was fuller and wider outside off stump and Tamim, who let the previous two go, chased this. He went really hard at the ball, aiming to lash it through cover, but ended up nicking it to second slip, where Sammy caught it. And look at those celebrations ... massive wicket 0/1
    3.3 caught behind! Short of a length but closer to the body outside off stump. Kayes stays in his crease, moves on to the back foot and pokes at the ball with an open face. Tentative shot with no real purpose and the outside edge is taken by Thomas 16/2
    8.2 lbw! Siddique falls to another yorker. But he wants a review. Roach delivered a lethal yorker on middle stump, made more lethal by Siddique's decision to play across the line towards midwicket. The ball struck him full on the front shoe and that is hitting middle stump. That review was in hope more than anything else. Bangladesh tottering ... 36/4
    5.1 caught at short midwicket! Sammy is on fire today, though the ball wasn't outstanding. Full ball on middle and leg, Mushfiqur wanted to flick and made very good contact, striking the ball hard. He flicked it in the air though and Sarwan barely had to move at short midwicket. That is a sharp catch. Mirpur falls silent for the third time. 25/3
    10.2 bowled him! Another flighted delivery that dips on Shakib outside off stump, Shakib didn't really do anything. He should have come forward but he stayed in his crease and made a limp effort at defending. The ball pitched just outside off and spun into the left-hander, beat the bat and hit the stumps. Benn roars. 41/5
    13.6 caught at point! Fuller ball, wide outside off stump. Raqibul leans forward to drive and plays far away from his body. A real loose shot. The edge travels in the air towards Pollard, who throws his huge body forward at point to take a sharp chance. Shambolic batting. 51/6
    17.1 West Indies are screaming in joy. The Mirpur crowd don't know how to react. It was a full delivery outside off stump and Ash went for a big drive through the off side and getsa thin nick through to the delighted keeper. 56/8
    16.2 .Benn has been bowling beautifully and gets his reward. It was another teasingly flighted delivery on a good length, turning away from the off stump after landing on the middle and off line. Naeem tried to defend it but the ball turned, bounce, and clipped the outer edge. Benn is usually known for firing those deliveries but he has been a revelation today 56/7
    18.3 There is a gully in place and he steers it straight to him! What was he thinking there? It turned away from the off stump and he opened the bat face and steered it to gully where Pollard took a lovely catch. He leaned forward, got his big hands under the dying ball and pouched it so safely and cleanly. 58/9
    not out
    18.5 Benn does a Afridi. He fires a yorker and the batsman had no chance. Bangladesh have folded up for their lowest score ever! Crazy crazy day at Mirpur. Benn roars. His team-mates have a laugh. Bangladesh are all out and and the home crowd is getting angry and restless. 58/10
