    2.1 rush of blood but it doesn't pay off, Tamim advances down the track after backing away to the leg side, tries to loft over mid-off but the doesnt get the distance and elevation, Smith runs backwards and takes it easily 24/2
    1.1 loud appeal and given! full and drifting in on the pads, Nazimuddin shuffles just a touch, tries to work it to the on side, is a little late getting his bat down, strikes him in front of leg stump 8/1
    4.2 Timber! pacy delivery on off stump, curving in, Aftab goes for a hoick across the line, misses it completely and the off stump goes back a few yards, Bangladesh just losing the plot here, someone needs to settle down 58/4
    2.4 Pollock wins this argument! good length on off stump, Ashraful goes for the loft over the bowler's head, mistimes it, gets a top edge and Smith at mid-on runs to his left and takes it 34/3
    7.2 superb stuff from JP Duminy! Shakib pushes it to mid-off with soft hands, sets off for a run, Duminy gathers the ball, flings himself forward and flicks it mid-air to the stumps at the non strikers end, Shakib dives but he's a couple of yards too short 77/5
    15.3 Another one bites the dust. Banged in short, at the body, Kapali swivels ever so slowly and shapes for the pull shot but the ball bursts on quickly, collides with the top edge and lobs up towards de Villiers 119/7
    10.4 Stunner from Duminy. Mortaza plays another one of his tennis forehand drives - backing away to the leg-side - and ends up scooping it up over extra cover. Duminy rushes back and dives to hold on to a very difficult chance 101/6
    17.2 Six and then out. Again tries to flat bat a short-of-length delivery over the bowler's head, gets a top edge to mid-off where Philanders back pedals to take the catch behind his head. 131/8
    18.3 short in length, on the off stump line, Rahim swat-pulls it high towards deep midwicket where Pollock moves to his left to take a smart catch 134/9
    not out
    19.3 yorker gets him. Homing in on the base of the off stump, Razzak has a stab at it but can't prevent the ball from crashing into the off stump. Bangladesh have been restricted to 144 144/10
