Shahadat Hossain2839853.5011710012
4.2 to AN Cook, gone! Bangladesh strike and England lose an early wicket! This one was very similar to the shout in the last over as Cook was once again beaten by movement in to him through the air to be struck on the back pad. Replays suggest that was a bit high, so Cook can feel a little bit aggrieved with that decision. Bangladesh are ecstatic though, and they may well be able to put England under some pressure now. 7/1
92.1 to EJG Morgan, gone! Early breakthrough for Bangladesh as Morgan pushed outside off stump and gets a thick edge which is well taken by Rahim. That will be a real lift for the visitors. Was a slightly flat-footed shot from Morgan who misses the chance to press on. 370/5
118.4 to TT Bresnan, the change of angle works, Bresnan pushes at this one and the wide first slip, Junaid Siddique, takes a good catch diving to his left...good thinking from the bowler, who executed his plan and was backed up in the field. 463/7
120.1 to IJL Trott, and he won't better KP as he guides a catch to backward point...Shahadat was around the wicket again and gets a deserved fourth wicket. Trott was scored plenty to third man in this innings, but couldn't find the gap this time. 478/8
124.6 to JM Anderson, that's all over, Shahadat gets his name on the Lord's honours board as he bursts though Anderson's drive...a great moment for the bowler, the first Bangladesh cricketer to get his name up in the dressing room. Well bowled.. 505/10
Robiul Islam22210704.868711104
Shakib Al Hasan27310924.031059200
52.3 to KP Pietersen, gone, lovely bowling! Pietersen falls to the left-arm spinner again! Slower and flighted on length around off stump, Pietersen had skipped leg side to aim a big drive, but was beaten in the air and deceived by the arm-ball that crept inside of the bat and crashed into his off stump. Big wicket for Shakib!. 227/3
123.4 to GP Swann, gone this time, he connected powerfully with a conventional sweep but is well caught at deep square leg as the fielder dives forward and clings on...a bright, breezy effort from Swann. 498/9
Rubel Hossain23010914.73849073
66.2 to IR Bell, what a ball! Where did that come from? Rubel had been pushing them away from the right-handers but this one nipped in, Bell played from the crease when perhaps he should have been forward and the ball zipped between bat and pad to make a mess of his stumps. Against the run of play, Bangladesh have picked up a wicket!. 258/4
43.4 to AJ Strauss, gone this time! No doubt about that! Strauss tries to cut one which was probably a touch too close for the shot, gets a bottom edge on to his stumps and Mahmudullah yelps, louder than even Shahadat in celebration!. 188/2

James Anderson3167842.511499010
61.4 to Jahurul Islam, that's more like it...on off stump, zips away off the seam and takes the outside edge through to Prior. A smile of relief on Anderson's face as he gets off the mark and England making major inroads. 191/5
72.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, gone this time! Excellent stuff from Anderson, hanging it outside off stump, Shakib had a feel and it caught the edge, went through to Prior who parried it -unable to hold on - to Strauss at first slip. 221/6
83.5 to Shahadat Hossain, that's the way to do it! Very full, a much slower one from Anderson and it looped down, cannoning off Shahadat's front pad as he swung across the line and crashing in to the stumps. Good thinking from Anderson, really slowing it down. 255/8
89.1 to Mahmudullah, bowled 'im! Full, fast and swinging from Anderson, Mahmudullah was late in moving his feet as he tried to drive through the covers and the bowler has made a mess of his stumps. So, Anderson gets his fourth and Bangladesh are nine down. 266/9
Tim Bresnan2457613.1611011020
92.6 to Rubel Hossain, that's that...good length outside off and a hard edge flies at head height to third slip where it's comfortably held by Alastair Cook. 282/10
Steven Finn25510044.0010712001
32.5 to Imrul Kayes, there we go! Finn really deserved that, reward for dragging his length back a fraction, was a good line at around the neck area, Imrul tried to ride the bounce but it got too big on him and he ended up guiding a gentle looping catch to first slip. Good innings though, but he'd be bitterly disappointed not to reach a first Test fifty. 134/2
56.1 to Junaid Siddique, gone! Finn gets his second and it's the bounce that does the trick again as Siddique tries to get his bat out of the way but the ball runs off the face through to Prior...well bowled by Finn and that will lift England. 179/3
58.2 to Mohammad Ashraful, gone! Now he has three and more reward for a testing spell as Ashraful plays across the line and is taken on the front pad. Asoka de Silva thinks about it then raises the moved quite a bit off the seam and replays show it was a touch too high and missing leg. That's tough for the batsman.. 185/4
80.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, that's a cracker! Justifies his promotion second ball with a beauty that nips back between bat and pad to take the top of middle stump. Terrific stuff from Finn who has been outstanding. 234/7

James Anderson2988412.8913711010
80.6 to Mohammad Ashraful, gone this time, good stuff from Anderson as he bangs one in a touch shorter and it seams away. Ashraful follows the ball and gets a regulation edge through to Matt Prior.. 321/4
Tim Bresnan26.299333.5311913010
83.3 to Shahadat Hossain, that's the spot and Shahadat wasn't in the same postcode as the ball crashes into middle stump...he was standing outside leg and Bresnan homed in. 322/5
108.4 to Rubel Hossain, gone this time! Another good delivery from Bresnan, Rubel wasn't sure whether to play it or not outside off, as the ball got to him he tried to whip the bat up and out of harm's way, but the ball rushed on to him and looped gently off the edge to Strauss at slip. 381/9
110.2 to Mahmudullah, Gone! Bresnan wraps up the Bangladesh innings, the ball was a well-directed chest-high short delivery, Mahmudullah stepped away and tried to hoick it over midwicket but got a thick edge on the ball as it rushed on to him, and Prior takes a simple catch. 382/10
Steven Finn2468753.6210512001
38.2 to Tamim Iqbal, gone! England make the breakthrough and it's a short ball from Finn that does the trick as he falls into the bouncer trap with three men out, but just finds deep square-leg. The end of a magical innings that will go down in Lord's history. Well played Tamim.. 185/1
42.3 to Imrul Kayes, gone! Top catch from Bell as Kayes flicks another short ball at his body into the leg side and short leg hangs on in front of his face. Good bowling from Finn, again, as he uses his bounce. Was genuine shot from Kayes, he just didn't keep it down and Bell is good under the helmet. 189/2
94.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, gone! It's the poorest ball Finn has bowled in a while - short and wide outside off - and Shakib absolutely murdered it, timing it superbly but straight to Morgan at point. 347/6
96.3 to Junaid Siddique, Finn strikes again! Good variation, it was a touch slower, Junaid was caught in two minds, unable to decide whether to drive or block and in the end did both - or neither - and pushed it gently to Bresnan at cover. Soft dismissal but it ends a really hard-working knock. 354/7
98.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, gone! Great piece of bowling from Steven Finn, hurling the ball down on an ideal length on off stump, a little bit of wobble through the air. Mushfiqur had to play at it, he tried to whip the bat out of the way as it went past him but the ball had already taken a thick edge. Finn takes his fifth, and it's been a superb effort from him. England are rumbling steadily towards the win here. 361/8
Graeme Swann2758103.001258200
Jonathan Trott401614.00172000
72.3 to Jahurul Islam, a wicket out of nowhere...Trott makes the breakthrough as Jahurul props forward and gets an inside edge into his pad which loops towards Trott who makes good ground in his follow through. 289/3

32.3 to AJ Strauss, gone this time! Strauss rocks back to cut and gets a thin edge on the shot, Mushfiqur clings on to the chance and throws the ball up in celebration. So, very similar to England's first innings there - given not out and then getting himself out very shortly afterwards!. 147/2
Rubel Hossain10808.0031001
11.2 to AN Cook, gone this time! Mahmudullah gets his man, it looked straight but Cook stretched a long way down to defend, and replays show it to be a tough decision on Cook. Going over off and middle. 67/1
