2 straight to third man. Full delivery outside off, Mominul runs down at the bowler, doesn't get close but goes through with an attempted lofted drive. There was enough room for the ball to move away from the batsman, a thick outside edge is easily taken 10/1
    8.3 good catch from Raza at deep midwicket! Flatter delivery around middle and off, Wright reaches out, gets close to the pitch and shovels a flick to deep midwicket. Raza goes back, takes an overhead catch, and keeps his composure to stay inside the field of play 63/3
    5.2 goes through Zakir. He has just missed a straight one. Full on middle and leg, Zakir backs away, improvises to try to defend but plan misses it. The ball beats the outside edge and hits the leg stump 41/2
    11.3 beautifully bowled. Sees Mushfiqur coming and drags his length back, slower through the air. Mushfiqur, in fine form, can't bail out, goes through with a swat and picks out long-on. Terrific bowling 86/4
    19.5 another one. Reece now has three. A slower delivery outside off, Franklin is unable to ably get underneath the length. All he manages to do is skew the ball off the inside half to long-on. A few inches shorter and that may have been six 156/6
    19.3 Sammy misses a yorker and is plumb in front. Did it dip late? Not sure it did. Sammy just missed a straight delivery. Hit Sammy flush on the boot in front of middle. There is nothing plumb-er than that. 155/5

    0.4 length ball and angling in, swipes across and he has holed out here. Seemed like it would carry all the way, he made decent connection but has ended up caught just in front of the deep midwicket boundary. They go upstairs to check and his foot is well inside 13/1
    5.2 fuller ball, tries to drive over extra cover. The bat turns in his hands a little, might have been undone by the lack of pace, and he skews a leading edge to the fielder there. Simple catch for him 51/2
    7.4 short ball, slower in pace which means he has swung through with the pull and ekes out an edge from the top part of the bat to offer a simple catch to the keeper. A wicket in his first over in the BPL for Qazi Onik 60/3
    15.1 that's a great team effort. Anik pulls a shortish ball but the shot comes off the top of the bat and he drags it to long-on who backpedals and takes it reverse-cupped. Sees the momentum would carry him over the ropes and he flicks it back to the deep midwicket fielder backing him up 105/6
    12.4 gets underneath the full toss and swings cleanly, but finds deep square leg, running to his left. Wasn't the greatest delivery, a full toss down leg. But Raza has struggled for timing, isn't able to get enough power or timing behind the sweep. The fielder runs to his left, keeps his eyes on the ball and takes a composed catch 92/4
    14.1 dipping fuller ball, almost a yorker, clips it out to cow corner and they call for an ill-judged second run. That never should have been taken. The throw comes in at the keeper's end and he takes the stumps out. Even a desperate dive cannot save him now 100/5
    17.4 another one holes out. Chittagong are unravelling pretty rapidly here. This is another length ball that he tries to flay to long-off and can only smash it straight into the hands of the fielder. Four wickets on debut for Onik 121/9
    16.4 fullish, angled across but simply not enough room for the batsman. Emrit clears the front leg and tries to lift it over the in-field. Does not read the cutter and chips it high for long-on to run to his left and snaffle a sharp catch 116/7
    17.1 plays the big slog to this full ball and it comes into him to beat him and flatten the middle stump. Reverse swing there 118/8
    not out
    19.2 tries to turn one that drifts into him and gets an inside edge to the right of the keeper who runs across and fires a direct throw as they try to steal a leg bye 124/10
