TOTAL138.3 Ov (RR: 4.32, 560 Mins)599/6d
Fall of wickets: 1-72 (Michael Carberry, 18.2 ov), 2-149 (Jonathan Trott, 39.5 ov), 3-319 (Kevin Pietersen, 75.4 ov), 4-412 (Alastair Cook, 102.4 ov), 5-596 (Paul Collingwood, 137.2 ov), 6-599 (Ian Bell, 138.3 ov)
39.5 to IJL Trott, gone! Breakthrough for Bangladesh and it's come from a bouncer as Trott goes for a pull and the ball loops behind for Rahim to take a simple catch after skipping back from his position. The umpire waited before giving him out and Trott doesn't look pleased with the decision. 149/2
138.3 to IR Bell, very well taken this time! Full-toss and Bell drove it sweetly down towards long on, who scuttled around the boundary edge and pocketed the catch very calmly, careful to stay inside the rope. 599/6
18.2 to MA Carberry, gone this time! Mahmudullah has caused all kinds of problems for Carberry. A big sweep against the spin attempted, but Carberry finds nothing but fresh air and the ball crashes into he front pad, looked out and replays show it was hitting. Vital breakthrough for Bangladesh who have looked all to flat this morning.. 72/1
102.4 to AN Cook, well, well, would you believe it...another long hop, Cook goes for the pull but completely mistimes his shot and lobs a gentle catch back to the bowler. What a way to go, and a double century has gone begging (and even a triple). 412/4
75.4 to KP Pietersen, oh no! Would you believe it!? Pietersen is bowled on 99 to a dastardly left-arm spinner, top stuff from Razzak. Pietersen went back to a full ball, trying to nurdle it away, and the ball spun past the edge and crashed into off stump. Sad end to a wonderful innings, but the left-arm-spin hoodoo continues to haunt him.. 319/3
137.2 to PD Collingwood, this time it's all over. Collingwood down the wicket and trying to club another six over the bowler's head, but doesn't time it and it flies high in the air, looping down to Tamim who runs around from long off to take the catch. 596/5

TOTAL90.3 Ov (RR: 3.27, 380 Mins)296
Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Imrul Kayes, 2.4 ov), 2-27 (Zunaed Siddique, 6.5 ov), 3-51 (Aftab Ahmed, 11.4 ov), 4-145 (Mahmudullah, 29.5 ov), 5-149 (Shakib Al Hasan, 37.2 ov), 6-159 (Tamim Iqbal, 41.4 ov), 7-183 (Shahadat Hossain, 50.3 ov), 8-296 (Naeem Islam, 89.6 ov), 9-296 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 90.1 ov), 10-296 (Rubel Hossain, 90.3 ov)
2.4 to Imrul Kayes, well, it looked likely! Good planning from England and Broad, they have really targeted Imrul with the short ball. He attempted a very desperate looking pull shot, it looped up off the gloves and Prior ran around to his right to take the catch. 13/1
6.5 to Junaid Siddique, oh dear, that is woefully soft. Another short ball, rising into Junaid's neck, he gets his bat half-heartedly in the way of it and it loops of a leading edge gently back to Broad who eagerly takes the return catch. 27/2
41.4 to Tamim Iqbal, gone! That's an absolute beauty from Bresnan, straightened from round the wicket, squared-up Tamim and clipped the off stump. It needed something good to shift him, and that would have done for plenty of batsmen.. 159/6
11.4 to Aftab Ahmed, what's happened here? Aftab goes for a cute little paddle sweep, the ball appeared to come off the glove, clip the thigh pad and loop up to Bell at short leg. It will be interesting to watch the replay of that one, as Aftab really wasn't happy with the decision and gave the umpire a long look when he was given out. Replays indicate the ball did brush the glove. 51/3
29.5 to Mahmudullah, oh dear, sad end to Mahmudullah. Swann strikes! An attempted sweep comes off the gloves and loops Collingwood at first slip. Big breakthrough really, and a shame after these two put on such a good stand. 145/4
37.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, Shakib what have you done?! Flighted up, the ball dipped and turned and Shakib stepped out to play a completely unnecessary swipe, was comprehensively beaten and bowled! It was very similar to his dismissal in the one-dayer, and Swann has snapped him up once again. Big, big blow for Bangladesh. Tamim is still there, but how much support can he expect from the lower middle order and tail? Bangladesh sink further into the mire.... 149/5
90.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Two in two and that is a sensational catch! Absolute blinder from Tredwell at short midwicket, diving one-handed to his right to pluck Mushfiqur's firmly-struck slog-sweep shot out of the air. Two bits of brilliant fielding have completely transformed England's mood. 296/9
90.3 to Rubel Hossain, gone again and Swann has five! Well Bangladesh have folded in an instant. Swann's slider and Rubel played down the wrong line. Lead of 303.. 296/10
50.3 to Shahadat Hossain, gone! Finn gets his first Test wicket as Shahadat prods outside off stump once again and this time gets a thick edge straight to second slip and it's a simple catch for Paul Collingwood. That will be a proud moment for Finn and will settle any lingering nerves.. 183/7

Fall of wickets: 1-65 (Alastair Cook, 15.4 ov), 2-87 (Jonathan Trott, 24.1 ov), 3-126 (Kevin Pietersen, 29.6 ov), 4-130 (Michael Carberry, 32.6 ov), 5-131 (Paul Collingwood, 34.3 ov), 6-144 (Matt Prior, 39.2 ov), 7-209 (Graeme Swann, 49.3 ov)
15.4 to AN Cook, Cook goes! He had looked to be positive so far in England's second innings, and had unfurled the slog sweep here. But the ball hit the bat slightly too high, so he got much more height than distance on the shot. Aftab Ahmed on the boundary ran round, getting into a good position to take the catch and hung on cleanly.. 65/1
24.1 to IJL Trott, tame dismissal for Jonathan Trott! The ball was short - a long hop really - and he went back to pull in the air. He didn't get the elevation or timing he was aiming for, however, and the ball went straight to the fielder at square leg. He will be livid with himself for that shot, he could have hit that anywhere on the leg side but picked out the fielder exactly, who took a sharp catch. 87/2
29.6 to KP Pietersen, got him this time! Shakib gets his man! You have to give credit to him for holding his nerve, Pietersen aimed another massive sweep but missed it, it crashed into his back leg and he looked dead in front.. 126/3
39.2 to MJ Prior, gone, Prior goes trying to go down the ground but doesn't get the distance on it to clear mid on, who steadies himself and takes a comfortable catch. 144/6
49.3 to GP Swann, reverse swept from outside leg stump and picks out cover...the end of a lively innings.. 209/7
32.6 to MA Carberry, Carberry falls! He played across one which got too full on him and struck the pads in front of middle. It was going on to hit and that ends a slightly stodgy innings from Carberry, he couldn't quite get away and never settled.. 130/4
34.3 to PD Collingwood, oh dear, that is as soft as dismissals go. Collingwood edges down the wicket and chips this gently to mid off. England have successfully lost any momentum they might have had, but with a lead of 434 it doesn't matter at all.. 131/5

Fall of wickets: 1-33 (Tamim Iqbal, 11.4 ov), 2-45 (Imrul Kayes, 14.3 ov), 3-99 (Aftab Ahmed, 32.5 ov), 4-105 (Mahmudullah, 36.6 ov), 5-110 (Shakib Al Hasan, 37.6 ov), 6-277 (Zunaed Siddique, 107.4 ov), 7-294 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 113.3 ov), 8-301 (Abdur Razzak, 114.6 ov), 9-327 (Shahadat Hossain, 122.6 ov), 10-331 (Naeem Islam, 123.6 ov)
114.6 to Abdur Razzak, gone! That looked plumb, Razzak played across a full straight ball and the umpire's finger goes up straight away...Broad didn't even look round, which could get him in a spot of bother. 301/8
32.5 to Aftab Ahmed, Bresnan continues to find something with the old ball and finally England have a breakthrough! Aftab had played so well but drove loosely at this just outside off, it came in a fraction and feathered an inside-edge through to Prior. 99/3
36.6 to Mahmudullah, got him! Cracking spell this from Bresnan! Mahmudullah was slightly casual here, trying to flick it away into the leg side, but it was full, swinging in and crashed into the stumps off his pad. 105/4
122.6 to Shahadat Hossain, another one gone! Full and Shahadat had a flat-footed fence at it outside off, faint edge through to Prior and this is nearly done. 327/9
14.3 to Imrul Kayes, Finn strikes! He's bowled well all morning, finds some carry and pace and a fraction of movement outside off stump, Imrul, having done so well to survive, departs three balls before lunch, as the ball snicks the outside edge of his defensive prod and climbs through to Prior. 45/2
11.4 to Tamim Iqbal, Graeme Swann take a bow! Really good bowling, held this back again, found some drift into Tamim, who tentatively popped forward and shaped to defend, the ball spun past the outside edge and clipped off stump. Offspinners' dream ball, and the Bangladesh fans are stunned.. 33/1
37.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, Shakib gone again to Swann! You sensed it coming, it was full and straight, Shakib opting to sweep again but it wasn't there for the shot. Poor shot but top bowling. 110/5
107.4 to Junaid Siddique, gone! England get their breakthrough at last, another lovely piece of bowling from Swann as he got one to turn from off stump, Siddique played forward and got a edge which carried low to slip...well taken by Collingwood. 277/6
113.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, gone! And again it's that man Swann as he fires one under the bat of Rahim as he uses his feet. It was an aberration from Rahim, who misjudged the length, and a real shame, he deserved a hundred after a fine innings. 294/7
123.6 to Naeem Islam, that's it! Swann has 10 in the match and England, finally, win! Naeem clipped it high down to midwicket where Carberry took a good diving catch. It's been a long, hard graft for England, Bangladesh did very well in the final innings.. 331/10
