Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Litton Das, 2.2 ov), 2-14 (Mohammad Naim, 2.3 ov), 3-26 (Shakib Al Hasan, 5.2 ov), 4-63 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 10.4 ov), 5-73 (Afif Hossain, 12.4 ov), 6-83 (Mahmudullah, 14.5 ov), 7-98 (Mahedi Hasan, 17.1 ov), 8-124 (Nurul Hasan, 19.5 ov), 9-124 (Mustafizur Rahman, 19.6 ov)
2.2 to Liton Das, this has gone high, and should be caught at deep backward square leg! Two boundary riders on the longer leg side boundary, and he looks to take on the sweep shot, after a little shimmy across the crease. Ends up top-edging the ball, as it goes on straight with the arm after pitching. A delightful bit of deception from Moeen, and Liton has to go. 14/1
2.3 to Mohammad Naim, Naim falls at the other end! Poor cricket from him. Seems to have pre-meditated a heave-ho, and skips down the wicket. Moeen hangs the length back a touch, and he ends up getting it right off the bottom of the bat. Easy catch for Woakes at mid-on, who's a little wider than normal. Didn't have to move a lot for that. 14/2
5.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, another wicket! And a superb catch taken by Rashid at short fine! This was banged in, and towards the leg side. Shakib wants to work it across the corner, but makes the mistake of just playing it a bit in the air. Also not middled, which gives the man there an opportunity to get to it. A quick couple of steps and then a leap ends with Rashid emerging with the ball in his hands. 26/3
17.1 to Mahedi Hasan, round the wicket, full but with pace off, scooped straight to short fine leg! Smiles all round for Mills and Morgan, England maintain their boa constrictor hold on this Bangladesh innings. Back of the hand again, couldn't manufacture the pace to clear the ring. Superbly executed by Mills. 98/7
19.5 to Nurul Hasan, banged in short, plenty of heat on this, Nurul swings and misses. England have actually reviewed this, but are already heading back to their positions before the TV ump has had access to UltraEdge. Hang on, not so fast, lads! There's a small spike as the ball passes the glove, and Rod Tucker has overturned the not-out decision!. 124/8
19.6 to Mustafizur Rahman, bowled him! Mills hits the poles to finish things. Another slower delivery, the Fizz backing away to expose his stumps and got nowhere near making contact. Dips and skids to hit leg, giving Big T excellent figures of 3 for 27. 124/9
10.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, fizzed in full and straight, Mushy goes for the reverse-swipe... was that pad? If so, it looked close! Livingstone is convinced, FWIW. The ball actually skidded away to the rope fine of third, but England review. What does technology say? Pitching in line and straightening, under the bat and into the shin. Three reds! Just enough grip and turn, hitting middle and leg stumps. 63/4
14.5 to Mahmudullah, charges down, skews a simple catch to backward point! Livi getting busy with his part-time leggies! Bangladesh's captain knew the onus was on him to raise the tempo, but that was a misbegotten attempt, didn't get to the pitch and a wild hack ended up picking out Woakes on the edge of the ring. 83/6

TOTAL14.1 Ov (RR: 8.89)126/2
Fall of wickets: 1-39 (Jos Buttler, 4.5 ov), 2-112 (Jason Roy, 12.5 ov)
12.5 to JJ Roy, ramped again, but well taken at third! Think he was looking to get it all the way once more, but there's not enough pace on Shoriful's delivery, with the longer boundaries at AD, and Nasum Ahmed runs in to scoop up an excellent, low catch. 112/2
4.5 to JC Buttler, there's the breakthrough! Just a bit flatter than what Buttler probably anticipates. Goes off the back foot and wants to loft this towards extra cover. Naim at wide long-off finds this within range, runs around to his left to complete a smart catch. Nasum pumps his fist in celebration. 39/1
