    38.1 outfoxes him! Cremer gets another one with the googly. Good length ball on off stump, hung up generously and dipping fast. Tamim steps out and wants to slog this over the midwicket boundary, but it turns away from him and he's woefully out of shape by the end of it all. Easy stumping for Taylor 163/5
    2.1 plumb! Beaten on the inside edge as he plonks the front leg across yet again. This length ball pitches in the corridor and nips back in. He's caught playing the wrong line and is struck dead in front of off stump. No doubt about that, and his partner tells him 6/1
    27.1 tossed up full outside off, and entices Shakib to come down the ground. Attempts to lift this over the bowler's head but deceived by the spin! Turns away from his bat, and the keeper stumps him with ease. Raza with the breakthrough 112/2
    34.2 full on off stump, tries to sweep and takes the top edge. Deceived by the pace in the air, and it's caught by short fine leg 147/3
    36.1 trapped in front by a googly. Doesn't pick it as he pushes forward on the front foot. He's convinced that he has no bat on this. He's walking off. Half-stride with bat behind the pad as he shapes to leave what he thinks is a legbreak outside off. Trapped right in front of off stump and that's another plumb lbw wicket this innings 156/4
    39.3 Ervine has plucked out a stunner! This is something! He's leaped one-handed to his left at short midwicket and somehow got his hand under it. Superb. It's a short ball from Jarvis, on a middle and off line. The pull shot is nailed off the middle of the bat and dips on Ervine, but he's got down rapidly and done this with some craft. Despite the speed at which he had to move, he completes the catch nicely with a soft landing and a firm elbow 167/6
    41.2 is that an edge? Yes it is! Bangladesh sliding rapidly. Offcutter dug in at short of a length and wide outside off. Grips the surface and climbs up as Nasir brings out the late cut. Once again he's through the shot early and the ball kisses the outside edge on the way up. Dips in front of Taylor who scoops it up 168/7
    42.2 looks like Cremer has his 100th ODI wicket. But we have to wait for confirmation because Mashrafe has reviewed this caught behind decision. This straightens in the corridor and he pokes the bat out. There is a slight sound as it passes the bat....and UltraEdge confirms that. He didn't look sure about hitting that, and asked the partner if there was a sound. But there's enough evidence. He's out 170/8
    48.1 taken at short fine by Muzarabani. If the Leaning Tower ever falls, it'll look like that. Chatara bounces the advancing batsman who can't connect on the hook. Top edge hangs up and to the right of Muzarabani, who follows it like he's in a trance, stretches out his long hands, takes the catch and falls down in slo-mo 196/9

    3.3 there's the big one! Back of a length outside off, angling away from Hammy after pitching. He tried to punch at it, but it's so far away from his body. Takes a thick outside edge, and easily pocketed by first slip 14/1
    6.5 you miss, I hit! Slow and loopy on middle stump. Mire tries to slog this far too early, and plays through even before the ball got to him. Sneaks under his bat, and crashes into middle stump 20/2
    9.2 sharp take from first slip! Back of a length on off stump, he goes chasing behind the ball that's angling away. Takes a thick outside edge, and the ball was dipping on the fielder, but he dives forward to complete an excellent catch. Zimbabwe in big trouble 34/4
    6.6 on a hat-trick! Gone first ball! Full on middle stump, but Taylor's gone back instead of coming forward. Misses the flick off his pads, and the ball raps him on the pads. Impact in front of the stumps, and Taylor's walking back. Easy lbw decision for the umpire. Taylor's horrid form continues 20/3
    32.3 drags it on. Picks the offcutter and plays what he will think is a poor shot. It's back of a length and climbing up wide outside off. He walks into it and can't get on top of the bounce. This is especially important, because the shot he's looking to play is a flick. The ball's going away from him all the time. He can only manage an inside edge onto leg stump 107/8
    22.4 given out lbw. Slides past his inside edge and strikes him in front of middle stump. He was looking to defend for the turn and completely missed the line of this slider. Huge gap between bat and pad 68/5
    22.5 lbw review. Waller has looked to play the paddle sweep first up and missed it. Looks to be struck on a middle stump line. The ball hasn't risen too much. I reckon the only way he survives this is if he has got bat or glove on it. We're waiting for Ultra bat involved. Tracking has him dead in front. That's hitting middle and off. He's gone. 68/6
    29.1 there can be no doubt here. Cremer stuck in the crease. The ball skids in, too quick for him as he looks to flick. On the knee roll, in front of middle stump. Umpires gives it 95/7
    36.3 pocketed by mid off! And it's all over. Full on off stump and smacked over the bowler's head. But no real power behind that. Taken by mid off with ease! 125/10
    35.3 easily taken at cow corner! Full on middle and Chatara goes for the slog, comes off the bat's toe end and it's only going down the throat of the man at wide long on 118/9
