TOTAL63.5 Ov (RR: 3.44, 297 Mins)220
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Imrul Kayes, 2.2 ov), 2-171 (Tamim Iqbal, 41.1 ov), 3-190 (Mominul Haque, 45.3 ov), 4-196 (Mahmudullah, 50.4 ov), 5-201 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 53.1 ov), 6-202 (Sabbir Rahman, 54.3 ov), 7-212 (Shuvagata Hom, 58.2 ov), 8-213 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 59.3 ov), 9-215 (Shakib Al Hasan, 60.4 ov), 10-220 (Kamrul Islam, 63.5 ov)
2.2 to Imrul Kayes, short and wide, Imrul cuts... straight to point, he's thrown it away! England are a-whoopin' and a-hollerin' in celebration at the breakthrough and Woakes has his first wicket of the tour. Certainly not his best ball but Imrul made little attempt to keep it down and picked out the fielder, Duckett jumping to take the catch just above head height. 1/1
58.2 to Shuvagata Hom, a bit of width, a wide half-volley really, but Hom was never in position for a swooshy drive. A simple nick through to Bairstow and Bangladesh's collapse continues!. 212/7
60.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, width, outswing, full length, a pitiful waft outside off, and another edge to the keeper! Shakib was steering a sinking ship to be fair, but that was a limp way to depart. 215/9
41.1 to Tamim Iqbal, flat trajectory, angled in and Tamim again pads up - Dharmasena gives it! Third time he's tried that and although Tamim reviews, it looks like a misjudgement from the batsman. Struck just outside the line, which doesn't matter as he wasn't playing a shot, and Hawk-Eye has it clipping the top of off stump, umpire's call. DRS can't save him on this occasion and, after a wonderful knock, Tamim goes!. 171/2
45.3 to Mominul Haque, done him! Lovely bowling from Moeen. This slides on with the arm from round the wicket, Mominul misjudges the length, goes back to what was quite a full delivery and the ball skids past the inside edge. 190/3
53.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, what a grab! Cook at leg slip, with a juggle. Mushfiqur came down the pitch, went to flick the ball to leg, the inside edge travels very quickly to leg slip. It rebounds off Cook's hand, goes upwards, gives him the chance to grab it again as it comes off his chest. 201/5
59.3 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, huge appeal as Mehedi sweeps! Round the wicket and very, very full! England review and little wonder, this could be in line with leg. Certainly no bat involved ... indeed, it's another one for poor Dharmasena to have to overturn!. 213/8
63.5 to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, edged, gone! Five for Moeen, and completed with a sharp diving catch at slip from Joe Root! Bangladesh have lost their last nine wickets for 49 in 22.5 overs. Gosh. 220/10
50.4 to Mahmudullah, reward for Stokes! This has been a superb spell. Back of a length outside off and that's a really weak prod, without any footwork, from Mahmudullah which offers a simple catch to the lone slip. Poor shot, but created by Stokes' work in this spell.. 196/4
54.3 to Sabbir Rahman, and another! What an afternoon for England...nibbles at a full delivery outside off, feet caught in the crease, sends a regulation edge to Bairstow's right. Takes it neatly. 202/6

TOTAL81.3 Ov (RR: 2.99, 296 Mins)244
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Ben Duckett, 1.5 ov), 2-24 (Alastair Cook, 4.1 ov), 3-42 (Gary Ballance, 10.2 ov), 4-64 (Moeen Ali, 14.3 ov), 5-69 (Ben Stokes, 15.4 ov), 6-114 (Jonny Bairstow, 32.1 ov), 7-140 (Zafar Ansari, 40.6 ov), 8-144 (Joe Root, 43.3 ov), 9-243 (Chris Woakes, 80.4 ov), 10-244 (Steven Finn, 81.3 ov)
4.1 to AN Cook, zipping on! Cook is pinned on the back foot and Bangladesh are reviewing this! He's so far back, but all three stumps are visible. This is leg stump or bust ... and it's bust for Cook! And, poor old Kumar, another overrule!. 24/2
10.2 to GS Ballance, this time he's edged it! The perfect length, full outside off, draws him forward, ball straightens enough to take the edge. Ballance didn't chase it. Just a lovely piece of bowling. 42/3
14.3 to MM Ali, bowled him, straight through as Moeen sweep, first of the day! An ill-judged shot, perhaps pre-meditated, but the delivery was slightly wide of off and skidding on, no turn this time and it goes under the bat to clip off stump. Mehedi bellows in celebration!. 64/4
32.1 to JM Bairstow, darted on the stumps, Bairstow plays across the line - pinned in front! Immediate success for Bangladesh's wunderkind and there'll not be a review, not the wisest choice of shot to a fresh line of attack and Mehedi got it to scuttle on, a bit like Bairstow's first-innings dismissal in Chittagong. Rapped him on the knee plumb in front of off stump. 114/6
40.6 to ZS Ansari, this time the edge carries and is held! Another five for Mehedi. Probing away outside off, brings Ansari forward, grips another to take the edge and is well caught by the second slip which had just been brought in after those previous edges. Good captaincy, good bowling, good catching. 140/7
80.4 to CR Woakes, and that's the breakthrough! Mehedi again (and the new ball). Woakes going to flick this off his pads, gets a thick inside edge which flies quickly towards leg slip who holds a sharp catch. Stand ends at 99. 243/9
1.5 to BM Duckett, turning sharply down the leg side and Duckett has been strangled! Closing the face as he followed the spin and grazing a catch straight into Mushfiqur's gloves!. 10/1
15.4 to BA Stokes, stays back, edged on to pad, short leg plunges forward... Umpire Ravi wants to check it carried but Stokes it already heading off! Yes, replays confirm Mominul got his hands under the ball, sharp spin for Taijul and Stokes could only jam it on to his thigh pad, gone for a duck. Bangladesh have another, England on the ropes here!. 69/5
43.3 to JE Root, huge moment! This skids on and traps him on the back foot. Doesn't bother with the review. Perhaps wasn't as short as Root thought, he was playing deep in the crease, the ball slides past the bat and crashes into the back pad in front of middle leg. 144/8
81.3 to ST Finn, and that's that! A regulation outside edge as Finn props forward and a neat catch. Did Rashid get that right? Lovely delivery, asking a lot of the No. 11 against the new ball. 244/10

TOTAL66.5 Ov (RR: 4.42, 282 Mins)296
Fall of wickets: 1-65 (Tamim Iqbal, 12.5 ov), 2-66 (Mominul Haque, 13.1 ov), 3-152 (Mahmudullah, 30.6 ov), 4-200 (Imrul Kayes, 45.1 ov), 5-238 (Shakib Al Hasan, 54.5 ov), 6-238 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 55.6 ov), 7-268 (Sabbir Rahman, 60.3 ov), 8-273 (Taijul Islam, 61.3 ov), 9-276 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 62.6 ov), 10-296 (Kamrul Islam, 66.5 ov)
45.1 to Imrul Kayes, Imrul sweeps, misses the ball - given! England finally get one, looked pretty plumb on the replay, hitting the front pad in line with middle stump. Excellent knock from Imrul, though he would have loved to convert it to a hundred. 200/4
12.5 to Tamim Iqbal, inside edge, onto the bat, and snaffled at leg slip, for Ansari's maiden Test wicket! That leg-side line pays off in the end, as Tamim is cramped for room and can't keep his clip down. 65/1
30.6 to Mahmudullah, what a shot to play with three minutes to play! What was he doing?! Sweeps across the line of a full ball, misses, and the stumps are clattered. Can only be a brain fade from Mahmudullah. And, in fact, that has turned out to the last ball of the day...jeepers. 152/3
13.1 to Mominul Haque, round the wicket, banged in short, a loose flinch outside off, and a low snaffle at slip from Cook! Stokes cannot stay out of the action for long, and suddenly England are surging. He was very very wide on the crease there, so wide that they checked for that rarest of beasts, the back-foot no-ball. But it's all clear. And it's all gone quiet in Mirpur. 66/2
55.6 to Mushfiqur Rahim, edged, taken! Stokes again. In the channel outside off, back of a length, Mushfiqur feeling for it and a healthy edge travels quickly to Cook who takes a smart catch. 238/6
61.3 to Taijul Islam, there's another one, nicked low to the keeper! Not much in the way of celebration from Stokes, he knows the real battle is to come... Pitched up outside off, got Taijul driving and Bairstow did well to snaffle a low grab. 273/8
54.5 to Shakib Al Hasan, chopped on! Big spin. Round the wicket, this grips out of the footmarks, rags in at Shakib who is playing back. Gets cramped for room trying to cut and bottom edges into his off stump. 238/5
60.3 to Sabbir Rahman, trapped him lbw! The quicker, straighter delivery and Sabbir is playing back. Caught right in front of all three. Well bowled by Rashid, did the batsman with the length. 268/7
62.6 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mehedi charges, the ball ends up at slip... another one gone! Looked initially like it might have been a stumping chance but there was actually a thickish edge as Mehedi swung for the hills and Root was alive to it and held the chance this time. 276/9
66.5 to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, swiped straight up in the air and Rashid takes the catch! Rabbi's top-edges his way out of it, he wasn't suggesting permanence but at least he hung around for a bit. Rashid finishes with a four-for. 296/10

23.1 to BM Duckett, skids through and Duckett is gone first ball! Stunning riposte from Mehedi, pushes through quicker, Duckett was playing for turn but was trapped on the back foot and in no position to save his stumps from being splattered!. 100/1
31.2 to GS Ballance, good grief, that is awful! A filthy long-hop, Ballance panicked himself into an aggressive response, and spanged a horrible leading edge high to mid-off! He traipses off in disgust, and Bangladesh have prised another opening!. 124/3
31.6 to MM Ali, on the front foot, doesn't spin, spanks the pad and up goes the finger! Moeen reviews but this looked plumb to the naked eye. Halfway up the front foot, and no inside edge. Hitting leg and England are in strife once more!. 124/4
33.5 to AN Cook, off the face of the bat and pocketed at silly point! That was a snaffle worthy of Eknath Solkar, just watching like a hawk as Cook loomed forward and keeping his hands soft on impact. Amazing scenes, and that is ten in the match for Mehedi!. 127/5
37.3 to JM Bairstow, big inside edge, loops to leg slip for a dolly of a catch! Was a straight delivery, which gripped and turned to take the inside edge. Then flew off the pad for an easy catch. Another five-for for Mehedi. 139/6
45.3 to ST Finn, it's all over! Finn flicks across the line, gets taken on the back leg and Dharmasena raises the finger for one last time in this series. He was going to ask for a review, but England have none left. Mehedi finishes with 12 in the match, what a performance. 164/10
24.1 to JE Root, tossed up, nailed on the shin, and that's out! Root was non-committal on the front foot, he thinks for a moment then shakes his head and trots off to his death-bed. Should he have fronted up so soon after his illness? It's academic now .... 105/2
42.3 to BA Stokes, done it! Shakib gets past Stokes outside edge with a straight delivery into off stump. Stokes goes down on his knees and Shakib brings out the salute celebration! Stokes just seemed to play down the wrong line. Straighter deliveries on this surface, offering so much, are dangerous. 161/7
42.4 to AU Rashid, first ball! With a ripper. This is quite full, Rashid is playing back, gets completely squared. Hits the back leg. But he reviews. Has it pitched in line with leg stump? That's the only question. Waiting for the graphics. Pitches in line. All over!. 161/8
42.6 to ZS Ansari, three in four balls! Amazing scenes in Dhaka! Ansari flicks the ball off his pads and it's grabbed by short leg, one of three men catching on the leg side. Actually, it's even more amazing. It's a bobble from Mominul at short leg which is grabbed on the rebound by Imrul who is next to him. 161/9
