18.6 to Naeem Islam, shuffles outside off, shaping for the flick but misses to connect. The furniture is disturbed.. 117/8
Trent Johnston402035.00122010
1.2 to Junaid Siddique, Junaid combusts. It was full and straight, he went for the big lofted hit down the ground but got too much under the ball and hit it straight up. It swirled in the air as it came down but the fielder did well to cling on to it.. 15/1
5.3 to Mohammad Ashraful, O Ash what have you done? Action replay of the earlier drop. He opened the bat-face and almost deliberately guided it straight to first slip. He was given a reprieve earlier but has committed the same mistake. Joy in the Irish camp.. 40/2
7.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, Irish are dancing away in the aisles. Lovely catch by Wilson at long-on. Shakib lofted it high in the air and Wilson back-pedaled, held his balance and took a sharp catch. Fine stuff from Ireland. Johnston is having a great day with the ball.. 50/3
Regan West402516.2561000
16.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh continue to hurtle towards nowhere. Mush charged out, going for the big hit, but lifted it straight to long-off.... 94/7
Kyle McCallan401714.25100000
15.3 to Raqibul Hasan, What a Irish evening this has been. Another wicket goes down. Full and straight on the off stump, Raqibul tried to go inside-out but missed it completely .. Gone!. 90/6
Alex Cusack403819.5060210
10.3 to Mahmudullah, Awesome work from Neil O'Brien. What a fine stumping , standing up to the mediumpacer. It was a full length delivery, the batsman went for the big swing across the line and missed it. The back foot was well inside the crease but while finishing the stroke, his back foot was lifted in the air slightly before it came down. In a flash the keeper had removed the bails! What a fine piece of keeping from O'Brien. The third umpire says that's out and what a game Ireland are having.. 66/5

2.5 to JP Bray, Mashrafee strikes. It was full and on the pads, Bray tried to flick it away but got a inside-edge on to his pad and it popped up for cover point to run in and take the dolly. The strangle has produced a wicket.. 6/1
14.2 to GC Wilson, Mash and Ash combo strike. Wilson crashed the full length delivery - it was the slower one - straight to Ashraful at covers. Ash is overjoyed. He roars and roars as his team-mates converge on him. Great scenes here. Thrilling and filled with tension.. 89/4

9.4 to NJ O'Brien, Niall holes out to long-off. It was a nice loopy flighted delivery outside off stump and Niall lunged out to lift it straight to the fielder.... 61/2
Abdur Razzak301816.0070100
11.2 to WTS Porterfield, what a soft dismissal. It stopped on Porterfield a touch and he ended up pushing it tamely back to the bowler. Razzak roars!. 71/3
