    5.3 soft dismissal, soft as a baby's bottom! And a huge scalp too, Tamim is gone here. Fligted ball outside off, Tamim was into the check drive early and it popped back in the air to Hafeez who was celebrating before he completed the catch. 31/2
    0.6 and he does not have to wait long to have his man! Great over finishes with a great result, as Aamer keeps it short of a length and straight, Kayes looks to pull despite not having the length and the top edge balloons up towards short third man where it is held by Misbah running back from slip 1/1
    17.5 well, he can get himself out, that's what! Ashraful lives by the sword, and also dies by the sword. Maybe the situation now needed him to manufacture a boundary, he hopped across towards off stump to look for a fine lap or pull shot, but it went too fine this time. Kamran, who's put down a couple, dives to his left and takes a beauty 140/5
    15.2 and gone! Sami's struck a crucial blow and Shakib, who's run very hard for his runs in the recent past, has possible lost his wicket to tiredness. He could not pack a punch into that lofted drive over the off side and it went straight to long off. Good ball from Sami, denying him the length to drive comfortably. 122/3
    15.6 and Mahmudullah goes, without contributing anything! Slower ball wide of off stump this time, he looks to slash it over point, but gets neither timing or placement. The dolly goes straight down point's lap. Bangladesh have lost two big sticks to Sami. 123/4
    not out
    18.3 and another one bites the dust! Cool, calm death bowling and Bangladesh's batsmen are doing the rest as the noose tightens. This was short of a length on middle and the batsman goes for the swipe over the leg side, gets a top edge which balloons up to midwicket 145/6
    19.3 sells him the dummy this time! Mortaza is down the track, but well short of the pitch of the ball, which slips past him and into Akmal's gloves who gleefully whips off the bails 150/7
