Shafiul Islam913303.66395000
Mehidy Hasan Miraz39.578062.001905100
9.5 to BM Duckett, bowled him! A maiden wicket from the debutant to the debutant! Duckett was offering up his stumps as a target, in exchange for room to play his shots, and he's paid the price, beaten off the deck by another delivery that grips and turns, and pings into his middle and off stumps!. 18/1
11.6 to GS Ballance, huge appeal, does this hit the pad first? Mushfiqur is reviewing! It was a more round-arm delivery, really skidding on, and if that is pad first, then Ballance is in a lot of bother ... yes, it is smashing the stumps, and off he goes!. 21/3
29.2 to JE Root, edged and gone, and that is utterly huge! A thin nick, playing for turn but this one goes straight on, and took a deflection off Mushfiqur's knee into the grateful hands of slip! Root was a class apart in the morning session, but he's gone before he can bed back in!. 83/4
67.6 to MM Ali, he's done it again! Mehedi's day gets better. Lovely piece of bowling, not much Moeen could have done. From round the wicket, drifted in at off stump, he had to play, then it spun to take the outside edge and a neat take by the keeper. 194/6
81.6 to JM Bairstow, bowled him, that's Mehedi's five! Quicker delivery, the new ball skidding on, rattles off stump and Bairstow's a goner! Needed to be forward to that ball... What a display by the teenager, he's become the youngest Bangladeshi to take a five-for on debut and the seventh overall. 237/7
105.5 to SCJ Broad, another huge appeal, and Bangladesh have reviewed immediately. The tenth review of the innings (a record), and did this graze Broad's edge through to the keeper? There is a tiny spike on Snicko, and the decision is overturned!. 293/10
Kamrul Islam804105.12337020
Shakib Al Hasan1964622.42915100
10.2 to AN Cook, Cook on the sweep, over-balances, and blimey, he's played onto his own stumps! He departs the crease in an indignant heap, after toppling backwards, and looping the ball off his forearm and into the timbers. Undone by the sharp spin and aggression of Bangladesh's close field. And that is an utterly vast wicket! The captain's gone, no agenda-setting 173 for him on this visit to Chittagong!. 18/2
40.4 to BA Stokes, goodness me, that is brilliant! An absolute ripper from Shakib, perfectly flighted, dipping late, in front of an somewhat delayed forward press, then exploding as if springloaded back through the gate and into the top of off stump! There's not a lot you can do as a batsman, except appreciate the skill and trudge back to the pavilion. 106/5
Taijul Islam24114721.951186000
92.1 to CR Woakes, gone! Angled into the right-hander, given a bit of air, Woakes propped uncertainly forward, and squeezed an inside-edge into the hands of short leg! A classic spinner's wicket, and what a start for Bangladesh!. 258/8
100.3 to AU Rashid, he's gone this time! Made himself some room outside off to drill through the covers off the back foot, but Sabbir at short cover pounces expertly, low to his left, to intercept and send Rashid on his way!. 289/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Stuart Broad821201.50421000
Gareth Batty1715113.00714000
54.4 to Tamim Iqbal, he's struck! Batty has added to his Test wicket collection. Round the wicket, pushed through with a touch more pace on the ball, goes on with the arm, Tamim is aiming to play through the off side and gets a thin top edge. Gaz has his celebration-face on. (Worth adding it was Dharmasena who gave the decision). 163/4
Chris Woakes721502.14311010
Adil Rashid1615823.62636000
43.2 to Mahmudullah, edged and taken, no doubt about this one! Rashid strikes, on the brink of the break again! A regulation legbreak, Mahmudullah drawn into pushing away from his body as the ball left him, a clear low deflection straight to slip and Robert's your mother's brother - England have been desperate for another and they finally break the stand. 119/3
80.2 to Shafiul Islam, slogged on the up, and plops into the hands of mid-on! A classic legspinner's dismissal, tempting the tail and picking them off. Credit to Cook for delaying the new ball. Rashid could get stuck in against nine, ten and jack.... 238/7
Moeen Ali2247533.40898000
13.2 to Imrul Kayes, bowled him, that's a beauty! Moeen strikes second ball, fizzing a quicker delivery past the outside edge to tickle the top of off stump with the tenderest caress and send Imrul on his way! Excellent stuff from Moeen, on the money straight away and it pays out for England. 29/1
13.5 to Mominul Haque, got him, off the shoulder of the bat and taken at gully! What an intervention from Moeen, two in four balls and Mominul departs for a duck, turn and bounce again as he pushed forward on off stump, possibly deflecting off Bairstow's leg after brushing the edge - lunch on that!. 29/2
74.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, brainless, brainless, brainless! Second ball of the morning, Shakib has gone on the charge! He's missed the ball by a mile as he twirled into a slog over long-on, and off come the bails as Jonny Bairstow can barely believe his fortune! That is an unforgivable loss of nerve from such an experienced character, or was it too much nerve? Reminiscent of Ian Botham to Trevor Hohns in the 1989 Ashes .... 221/6
Ben Stokes1452641.85714000
71.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, another legcutter, did that kiss the edge... and more importantly did it carry to Bairstow? England are celebrating the wicket, the umpires are going to send it up to S Ravi, but the soft signal is out... Yes, taken on the juggle low down by YJB! That's a bingo! Mushfiqur's spunky little knock comes to an end with the Chittagong sun setting as England again land a late blow. Tickled the edge and then hit Bairstow on the wrists, but he clutched the ball as he tumbled forward. 221/5
81.1 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, reverse swing again from Stokes, and up goes the finger! Mehedi reviews, but he had shuffled a long way across his stumps to counter Stokes' movement, and sure enough, that was hitting leg. 239/8
85.3 to Sabbir Rahman, edged, and gobbled up at slip! Or so Stokes thinks. Alastair Cook doesn't look entirely sure, but the soft signal is out as they are sent up to the TV umpire for confirmation. He went a bit wider on the crease, and found just enough lift off the deck to kiss the splice. Lots of deliberation from S Ravi, as this is a tough one to call. The fingers look like they are under the ball, and the umpire agrees!. 248/9
85.6 to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, timbeeeeeeeeer! Short and not-so-sweet from Rabbi, who leaves a straight ball and loses his off stump. Just enough reverse swing bring the ball back and knock over the pole with a satisfying "splut"... So Stokes finishes it, a fine four-for in unremittingly hostile conditions to bowl seam and England have a 45-run lead. 248/10

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mehidy Hasan Miraz2015812.90825000
8.1 to AN Cook, fast spin, Cook prods, snapped up at slip! Mehedi strikes, his seventh wicket of his debut Test, got this one in the perfect area, the batsman hanging back but it fizzed off a full length and turned a good way, clipped the outside edge and well held a few inches above the turf. Anothe relative failure for England's Asian master (which tells you plenty about the conditions). 26/1
Shakib Al Hasan3378552.571468100
9.2 to JE Root, full and straightening, Root sweeps and is struck on the pad... up goes the finger! After a brief chat with his partner, Root reviews but this looks like a bit of a punt. No bat involved, pitching on middle and going straight on, Hawk-Eye has it giving middle stump a punch in the kidneys! That's out, out, out! Huge wicket for Bangladesh, England two down - their big beats slayed - and the lead 72. 27/2
11.2 to BM Duckett, gloved on to the thigh pad, short leg takes a simple catch! Chris Gaffaney gives it straight away and Duckett bucks the trend of the match by walking straight off... No doubt about it, the ball straightening and flicking the glove before looping up, England are three down and this is turning into a proper bun fight!. 28/3
27.1 to MM Ali, swept, and gone! Moeen lined it up alright, outside off, but somehow managed to under-edge the ball onto his pads, then lob it back up off his gloves! Mushfiqur was alert as he dived forward to gather ... game on!. 62/5
64.2 to BA Stokes, full and dipping as Stokes sweeps, strikes the pads - and Dharmasena gives it! Stokes remains on his knees while discussing whether to review with Woakes but by the time he asks for it, the umpire tells him it's too late. Looked pretty plumb on the replay, pitching on middle and off and straightening, Shakib gets his fourth and brings to an end a fantastic knock from Stokes. 197/7
68.4 to AU Rashid, gentle lbw appeal here, Rashid defending with bat next to pad... Mushfiq asks his bowler if it was pad first and then, with a grin on his face, asks for the review. It'll be close if it was pad then bat... Lots of rocking and rolling on the replay, looks like it did kiss the front leg before thudding into the bat, so we go to Hawk-Eye, impact in line and hitting middle stump! Another decision is overturned, Shakib has a five-for and England are eight down. 213/8
Taijul Islam15.224122.67712200
18.2 to GS Ballance, swept, but straight into leg slip's bread-basket! Ballance was looking vulnerable in the leg trap, but not in that manner. He chose the right shot but maybe didn't commit fully. Kayes did well to stand his ground and wear the ball as it came at him hard off the face. 46/4
80.2 to GJ Batty, very full, pins Batty on the shin, and up goes the finger! England are reviewing, it definitely hit pad first but did it straighten enough? Certainly did! So, good job from Taijul. Dharmasena confirms the decision, but everyone has already the field!. 240/10
Kamrul Islam802413.00333000
61.4 to JM Bairstow, bowled 'im, YJB plays on! Kamrul Rabbi celebrates his maiden Test wicket with a roar! The stand is broken, almost out of nowhere... Can Bangladesh round up the rest? Not quite room to cut and Bairstow's angled bat only diverted the ball into his stumps. 189/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Gareth Batty1736533.82707000
27.5 to Mominul Haque, down on one knee to sweep, and England review! Batty is adamant that there's something in this ... is it lbw, or an under-edge to bat-pad? Doesn't seem to be bat involved ... the bat hits the ground, but not the ball. Over to HawkEye then, did it pitch inside the line of leg stump? It hit! A huge roar from England as they watch the replay on the big screen, and England have their third wicket!. 103/3
29.6 to Mahmudullah, big appeal from round the wicket, pinned on the shin, and up goes the finger! Mahmudullah reviews but unless he's grazed this, there's no reprieve likely... once again, he's scuffed the ground with his bat, hence the disruption on Snicko, and sure enough, HawkEye shows that that is splattering middle stump!. 108/4
67.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, spin and bounce, off the handle, was it? Short leg tumbles, up goes the finger... and Mushfiqur walks! More drama, just as Bangladesh looked to be grabbing this chase by the collar, Gareth Batty has dusted himself down and landed a massive blow. The captain heads off looking disconsolate, though it was a jaffa of a delivery, ripping and leaping off a length to be snapped up as he fended it away. Batty's gone puce as he celebrates!. 227/6
Moeen Ali1426024.28536200
9.5 to Tamim Iqbal, no argument about this one! Turn and bounce from an off-stump line, takes the inside-edge, lobs off the knee-roll, and Tamim departs to a sharp catch from Ballance at short leg!. 35/1
40.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, spins on off stump, flicks the edge, Bairstow pouches it - gone! Moeen gets Shakib again, although there wasn't all that much he could do about this one. Beautifully flighted, drew him forward and then burst off the pitch to tickle the willow on its way through... Pretty much the perfect offbreak to a left-hander and England are halfway to their target. 140/5
Chris Woakes731001.42361000
Adil Rashid1725513.23631100
20.1 to Imrul Kayes, goes for the sweep, loops up over the keeper and taken by Root, moving across from slip - up goes the finger! That could be a huge wicket, definitely came off the glove and it was a simple catch in the end. Rashid strikes and the ground goes silent!. 81/2
Stuart Broad1543122.06702000
70.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, nip-backer, struck on the pads - given! Broad was wagging his finger as soon as the ball thundered into the knee roll... but Mehedi is going to review, he has to, really, given what's to come. Not sure it's going to help him much, though. It came back unerringly off a length, struck in line with off... and thudding into leg stump, according to Hawk-Eye! England get two in rapid succession and again the game swings in the wind (if there's anything approaching a sea breeze in Chittagong this evening). 234/7
72.4 to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, full and flicked off the pads... straight to short leg! Given straight away and Broad screams in celebration, England are two wickets away! Rabbi wanted to review but the umpires inform him that Bangladesh have none left. Looked like it scraped the inside edge and then ricocheted off the front pad straight to Ballance, but we'll have to wait for the replays to be sure. There'll be no reprieve, though. 238/8
Ben Stokes11.322021.73572010
81.1 to Taijul Islam, on the stumps, flicks the pad playing across the line, loops past the diving Bairstow... Stokes wanted the lbw and England have reviewed (they were topped up at 80 overs remember). Looked a bit speculative to me but here we go... Past the inside edge, struck in line, Hawk-Eye has it hitting leg stump! England are ecstatic, I thought they had gambled but Stokes just had a feeling it was adjacent and Taijul has to go! In this match of reviews, another dramatic reversal!. 263/9
81.3 to Shafiul Islam, props forward, hit on the front pad, Dharmasena gives it! He's decided that Shafiul was not playing a shot and although he reviews, for the umpteenth time in the match, the odds are not in the batsman's favour now... Struck outside the line but ball-tracker has it hitting off, umpire's call, Shafiul is a goner and England have snatched a famous 22-run win! Stokes is indeed the man for England, he's got a pretty decent script-writer, this lad. 263/10
