Zaheer Khan1936233.26878000
2.3 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim's gone, superb stuff from Zaheer who gets it to nip back in after pitching it on a good length on the off, Tamim got forward, only just, and tried to close the face but was a little late in adjusting to the movement and it crashed into middle and off. 4/2
4.2 to Junaid Siddique, another wicket down the leg side, short outside leg and he tries to help it on its away to fine leg, swivels and gets a glove to it, no doubts this time and it heads straight to Dhoni. 13/3
35.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, gone! A terrible shot, short and wide and moving away further, reaches out to play the cut, has to stretch, gets a thick edge straight to Dhoni. 127/7
Ishant Sharma1836643.668412000
1.1 to Imrul Kayes, caught down the leg side, Ishant strikes with his first delivery, short outside leg and he tries to clip it fine, gets a feather to Dhoni who goes up immediately, Bowden has no problem with it, India hit early.. 0/1
11.6 to Raqibul Hasan, four down, Raqibul, who was restrained upto this point, attempted a drive to a fullish delivery outside off that was angled in from slightly wide of the crease, got a thick outside edge straight to Dravid at second slip. 44/4
31.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, trapped in front, got it to nip back in, short of a good length, forced him on the back foot, moved in and beat his attempted defence to trap him in line with middle and leg, looked plumb. 106/6
63.5 to Shafiul Islam, and the gets the breakthrough! Short of a length on the off and angling away from the right hander, Shafiul makes the fatal error, opting to play at it, guides it straight into the palms of Dravid at second slip. 213/9
Pragyan Ojha1614923.06725000
12.4 to Mohammad Ashraful, Stumped, Ashraful wanted to continue his attacking game, that didn't spin, tossed up outside off, came down the track and tried to smash it over the in-field on the leg side, missed, was way out of his crease and Dhoni did the rest. 51/5
43.6 to Shahadat Hossain, stumped, flighted it again and drew him forward, tried to defend it into the off side, it turned away to beat the outside edge and Dhoni reacted quickly to take off the bails with Shahadat's foot still on the line, the third umpire's taking his time but I can't see any part of the foot inside the crease, he's given him. 155/8
Harbhajan Singh18.534812.54875000
73.5 to Rubel Hossain, bowled'im! Through the gate, tossed it up outside off and got him to prod forward, tried to defend it towards cover, it spun in to miss the bat and slid through the gap onto the stumps. 233/10

Shafiul Islam2318633.73878010
29.5 to G Gambhir, no century for Gambhir, undone by a superb short ball from Shafiul, similar manner of dismissal as Sehwag, Gambhir was surprised by that well-directed bouncer, he jumps and fends at it just outside off, and the resulting edge loops towards the keeper, who collects a simple catch. 146/2
102.5 to Harbhajan Singh, at the fag end of the day! Shafiul bowls it wide outside the off stump and invites the wild slash, Harbhajan obliges and the thick edge is snapped up by Mushfiqur. 459/5
106.2 to Z Khan, bangs it in short and Zaheer goes for the bait, the ball rises towards his face and he can't resist the hook, the top edge swirls to Shahadat at fine leg who falls and takes it well, credit to Shafiul for setting it up. 467/6
Shahadat Hossain2229114.139213002
19.6 to V Sehwag, gone! Superbly bowled, some extra pace on that one and he bowls it short on the off, shot off the pitch and Sehwag didn't expect that, was late in trying to back away away from it, it caught the glove and went through to the keeper. 103/1
Rubel Hossain28111504.1010811008
Shakib Al Hasan34311823.4713512200
91.4 to SR Tendulkar, gone! A tame dismissal, it was bowled full on the pads, came down the track and chipped it straight to Imrul Kayes at midwicket. 421/3
95.5 to M Vijay, comes round the wicket and bowls it on middle, comes down the track and tries to clear mid-on but can't get it past Mahmudullah who takes a simple catch. 436/4
Mohammad Ashraful903814.22335000
123.6 to I Sharma, Ishant is gone, big air from Ashraful, pitching on a length, Ishant looks to defend but gets the outside edge, ball hits the keeper on his right shoulder and pops up, Mushfiqur then pouches it. 518/7
Junaid Siddique10909.0011000
Raqibul Hasan11010.0060000
132.6 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni stretches forward to defend a short of length ball, which turns past his bat, Mushfiqur has the bails off in a jiffy, did Dhoni get his back leg into the crease in time? Nope, it was on the line, Dhoni is gone for 89. 544/8

Zaheer Khan20.328774.248813010
4.5 to Imrul Kayes, Zaheer strikes, Kayes was perhaps unsettled by the previous delivery, he checks his drive to a short of length ball outside off, it pops towards Karthik at cover, he dives forward to latch on to the ball. 19/1
56.4 to Junaid Siddique, thin edge! Zaheer tempts him with width and pitches it up, Siddique chases it and looks back after snicking it, Zaheer looks back for confirmation, Bowden gives him. 219/2
58.1 to Tamim Iqbal, Zaheer's double-strike adds a big twist here, he gets the ball to reverse swing from over the wicket, induces Tamim to get forward to drive and the ball brushes the edge and Dhoni and the rest know they've got him. 222/3
88.2 to Raqibul Hasan, Bangladesh slide towards defeat, Raqibul shoulders arms to be bowled, that's not a replay he will want to see, Zaheer bowled that from the edge of the crease and the angle takes the ball through to offstump, hits him on the front pad along the way. 304/7
88.4 to Mahmudullah, this match is heading to an early finish, a blinder from Murali Vijay at slip gives Zaheer his second wicket of the over, the ball moved away after pitching on a back of a length, just enough to attract the outside edge, Vijay throws himself to his left from second slip to latch onto a low one-handed effort, a stunner. 304/8
88.5 to Shafiul Islam, ho ho ho, Zaheer is on a hat-trick, again bowling from wide of the crease and cuts through the batsman, strikes offstump as the batsman looks to defend, that's No. 6 for Zaheer. 304/9
90.3 to Rubel Hossain, that's it, India need two to win, Zaheer gets ten in a match, the batsman plays down the wrong line to a length delivery which knocks over offstump. 312/10
Ishant Sharma1525003.33626000
Harbhajan Singh2677512.881197200
79.2 to Shahadat Hossain, and there's the breakthrough India were searching for, Amit Mishra gets a chance to make amends for his horror drop and he does, Shahadat charges out of the crease and looks to loft over long-on, where Mishra gleefully accepts the catch. 290/4
Pragyan Ojha2247723.50956300
80.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, oh dear, that's two in two overs now, lovely delivery from Ojha ends Ashraful's stay, gets the ball to grip and turn across the batsman who was on the backfoot as he looked to play that one, gets an outside edge to Dhoni, Ojha gets that to bounce extra as well. 291/5
82.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, Shakib is gone, are Bangladesh heading for another of their familiar implosions? Shakib powerfully swats a length delivery only to see Gambhir pluck it overhead at square leg, it went straight at him. 301/6
