    0.3 Bangladesh off to a scintillating start, left arm Allott over the wicket, pitching on middle, straightens down the line, appeal, Robinson takes a long while to give a pretty plumb lbw 0/1
    2.3 quick ball, or did the batsman just fall asleep, trying a very late cut, ball hits the pad, aimed at the off stump, the umpire was quick with the finger trigger, possibly before Mehrab even started his shot 7/2
    13.3 but it's Akram Khan who should be impeached, slogging a straight drive down the ground, well, that was the intention anyway, instead it goes straight into the hands of the bowler 38/4
    12.4 lovely ball, hopeless shot, seaming from outside the off stump, Aminul going for an *inappropriate* hoik over the mid wicket, plays outside the line, bang goes the middle stump out of the ground 38/3
    17.2 short of a length, outside the off stump, seams in, Mashud without a clue, into the leg stump, Larsen shows a little too much enjoyment over that wicket 46/5
    29.5 4th lbw of the day, Naimur playing down the outside of it, pitching on off, struck in line with middle, may have missed the leg stump, venkat doesn't care, he wants to watch the afternoon soaps 85/8
    19 slow ball out of the back of the hand, full toss, misjudges it and drives in the air, easy catch for the mid off, disgusting batting 49/6
    20.1 first ball and gone, huge appeal from Cairns, just trying to defend, strikes in line with the left hander's leg stump 51/7
    33.5 around teh wicket to the left hander, bingo! the enamled one plays over it trying the cover drive, ball spins into the off stump 96/9
    37.4 waist high full toss, pulled direct to the mid wicket, batsmen think it should be a no ball, but the replay shows it was called correctly, he hit it a long way in front of himself 116/10
