Shaun Pollock3.3040311.4275200
2.1 to Tamim Iqbal, rush of blood but it doesn't pay off, Tamim advances down the track after backing away to the leg side, tries to loft over mid-off but the doesnt get the distance and elevation, Smith runs backwards and takes it easily. 24/2
2.4 to Mohammad Ashraful, Pollock wins this argument! good length on off stump, Ashraful goes for the loft over the bowler's head, mistimes it, gets a top edge and Smith at mid-on runs to his left and takes it. 34/3
19.3 to Syed Rasel, yorker gets him. Homing in on the base of the off stump, Razzak has a stab at it but can't prevent the ball from crashing into the off stump. Bangladesh have been restricted to 144. 144/10
Makhaya Ntini2031115.5044200
1.1 to Nazimuddin, loud appeal and given! full and drifting in on the pads, Nazimuddin shuffles just a touch, tries to work it to the on side, is a little late getting his bat down, strikes him in front of leg stump. 8/1
Morne Morkel402125.25143011
4.2 to Aftab Ahmed, Timber! pacy delivery on off stump, curving in, Aftab goes for a hoick across the line, misses it completely and the off stump goes back a few yards, Bangladesh just losing the plot here, someone needs to settle down. 58/4
15.3 to Alok Kapali, Another one bites the dust. Banged in short, at the body, Kapali swivels ever so slowly and shapes for the pull shot but the ball bursts on quickly, collides with the top edge and lobs up towards de Villiers. 119/7
Johan van der Wath401313.25140010
18.3 to Mushfiqur Rahim, short in length, on the off stump line, Rahim swat-pulls it high towards deep midwicket where Pollock moves to his left to take a smart catch. 134/9
Vernon Philander402325.75160300
10.4 to Mashrafe Mortaza, Stunner from Duminy. Mortaza plays another one of his tennis forehand drives - backing away to the leg-side - and ends up scooping it up over extra cover. Duminy rushes back and dives to hold on to a very difficult chance. 101/6
17.2 to Farhad Reza, Six and then out. Again tries to flat bat a short-of-length delivery over the bowler's head, gets a top edge to mid-off where Philanders back pedals to take the catch behind his head.. 131/8

Abdur Razzak402626.50110200
8.4 to JP Duminy, Gone! Duminy slog-sweeps out of habit, not really looking at the line and length of the ball. He's beaten in the flight and struck on the pad. This time his luck has run out as the umpire's finger goes up. 65/1
16.1 to JA Morkel, Albie falls. Bangladesh continue to fight. He comes down the track and mistimes a lofted shot, straight to long-off. He ended up slicing it off the bottom of the bat. 123/3
Mohammad Ashraful201708.5032010
Shakib Al Hasan402817.0082100
13.4 to GC Smith, loopy flighted delivery on the stumps, Smith top edges a sweep and Rahim, the wicketkeeper, runs towards square leg to get under it.. 108/2
