TOTAL77.2 Ov (RR: 2.76, 334 Mins)214
Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Murray Commins, 4.1 ov), 2-27 (James McCollum, 9.6 ov), 3-48 (Andy Balbirnie, 21.5 ov), 4-122 (Harry Tector, 41.4 ov), 5-123 (Peter Moor, 42.6 ov), 6-124 (Curtis Campher, 44.3 ov), 7-159 (Andy McBrine, 59.4 ov), 8-199 (Lorcan Tucker, 70.5 ov), 9-214 (Mark Adair, 76.3 ov), 10-214 (Graham Hume, 77.2 ov) • DRS
4.1 to M Commins, huge appeal, and given! That looked pretty adjacent! Full delivery slanted into the batter on off stump. Commins falls over a touch and then plays all around it as the ball smashes into the pads. Shoriful goes up, and so does the umpire's finger! Commins has a chat with his partner but decides against the review, and rightly so!. 11/1
9.6 to JA McCollum, a bit of a juggle but the fielder holds on! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that bounces a tad extra and zips off the surface. McCollum has a waft at it and gets a thick outside edge that flies towards second slip. Shanto indulges in a sweet, little juggling act before clinging on to it!. 27/2
59.4 to AR McBrine, the short ball does the trick! And out comes the salute! Dug into the track on off stump and this one gets big on McBrine. He tries to swipe it away but because the ball is near his back shoulder, he can't keep it down. He splices it and Mominul does the rest at square leg!. 159/7
21.5 to A Balbirnie, He's been given out LBW! Full ball on off stump, which Balbirnie looked to sweep. The ball was probably a bit too full to attempt that shot. He's gone up for a review, but this looks plumb. Aleem Dar's decision is upheld. Umpire's call on impact, so Ireland will keep their review, but they've lost their captain and that's a massive moment for Taijul.. 48/3
42.6 to PJ Moor, Oh dear, what have you done, PJ Moor? Full ball from Taijul, Moor looks to loft it across the line, gets a thick leading edge and Tamim takes a simple catch at mid-off.. 123/5
44.3 to C Campher, Ireland are falling apart here! That's an arm ball from Taijul again, goes past the inside edge as Campher looked to defend. The Irish send this upstairs, but that doesn't save them. Ball tracker shows the ball would've clipped the top of leg stump. 124/6
70.5 to LJ Tucker, excitement from those around the batter! Very full delivery outside off stump. Tucker looks for the paddle but makes a mess of it. The ball seems to beat the bat but Tucker might just have reached out a touch more than expected, thus, dragging his back foot out of his crease. Litton whips off the bails in a flash and we go upstairs to check if Tucker has been stumped! Looks like Tucker's back foot has not gone back in time, and Bangladesh have their eighth wicket!. 199/8
76.3 to MR Adair, Has Taijul got his 5-fer? The umpire seems to think so, Adair wants him to check again. This is the arm ball, pitched on a length, Adair went all the way but doesn't get any bat on it and gets pinged on the pads. The umpire had no hesitation in raising his finger, and with good reason, as ball tracking returns three reds.. 214/9
41.4 to HT Tector, Mehidy makes it happen for Bangladesh! An error in judgement by Tector, as he tried to manufacture a stroke through midwicket. This was well outside off, from where Tector has looked to play that across the line, he only gets an inside edge and the furniture is disturbed.. 122/4
77.2 to GI Hume, And that is that. Hume looks to padde a length ball on off stump, misses it completely and sees off stump disturbed. 214/10

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 0.5 ov), 2-34 (Tamim Iqbal, 9.6 ov), 3-40 (Mominul Haque, 12.4 ov), 4-199 (Shakib Al Hasan, 43.6 ov), 5-286 (Litton Das, 57.5 ov), 6-331 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 67.2 ov), 7-337 (Taijul Islam, 71.2 ov), 8-348 (Shoriful Islam, 73.6 ov), 9-354 (Ebadot Hossain, 75.3 ov), 10-369 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 80.3 ov) • DRS
0.5 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, What a start for Adair! Length ball on off, hint of movement back in off the seam, Shanto went for the cut but only managed chop it back on to his stumps. Adair's delighted, and so are Ireland.. 2/1
12.4 to Mominul Haque, bowled around his legs! Oh my! Full delivery on leg stump. Mominul walks across a little and then looks to work it behind square on the leg side. But he cuts himself off a touch and cannot access the ball altogether. It goes past the bat, the pad and then flattens leg stump!. 40/3
9.6 to Tamim Iqbal, McBRINE HAS STRUCK OFF THE LAST BALL OF THE DAY! That one pitched on off, turned and bounced and took the shoulder off Tamim's bat as he looked to defend and popped up to Adair who gobbled that up at second slip. Ireland are joyous!. 34/2
43.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, edged and taken! Shakib departs for 87! Given a bit of air on a length outside off stump and Shakib, because the leg-side field is so open, goes for the cute paddle. He has to fetch it, though, and the ball bounces a touch extra, taking a feather through to the keeper!. 199/4
67.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, taken brilliantly at long on! Given a bit of air on a full length on leg stump. Mushfiqur comes down the track and looks to launch it over long on. This time, though, he does not quite get to the pitch of it and has to reach out. Chalks it towards long on, where Commins comes in off the fence and completes a superb catch diving forward! What a knock this has been, though. It has put Bangladesh well and truly in command of this game!. 331/6
71.2 to Taijul Islam, cleans him up! Given a bit of air on a length just outside off stump. Taijul looks at the width and his eyes light up. He tries to crash it through the off side but is slightly early into the stroke, meaning that he chops it back onto his stumps!. 337/7
73.6 to Shoriful Islam, huge appeal, and that looks plumb! Back of a length delivery on middle and off stump that grips and spins away. It also keeps a tad low and Shoriful, who is camped deep in his crease, can't get bat on it. It smashes into the back pad and the umpire raises his finger! Shoriful does not bother with the review and Bangladesh are now eight down! That is also McBrine's fifth wicket this innings! . 348/8
75.3 to Ebadot Hossain, edged and taken! McBrine has six! Length delivery angled across the batter just outside off stump. Ebadot has a nibble at it without any decisive footwork and gets a feather that is gobbled up behind the stumps! Bangladesh are falling apart, and it is McBrine doing the bulk of the damage!. 354/9
57.5 to Litton Das, now LItton has to go! Full ball outside off, Litton looks to smash this over mid-off, but doesn't get the elevation he needed. Tector makes amends for that poor throw with a simple catch, Tucker is relieved, and White has his first Test wicket. 286/5
80.3 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, stumped, and Bangladesh are bowled out for 369! Tossed up on a length outside off stump and this one grips and spins away sharply. Mehidy advances without really picking the length and is too far away from the ball as it goes past the bat. Tucker does the rest, and catches Mehidy well short of his ground!. 369/10

Fall of wickets: 1-1 (James McCollum, 0.4 ov), 2-7 (Murray Commins, 3.4 ov), 3-8 (Andy Balbirnie, 5.1 ov), 4-13 (Curtis Campher, 6.3 ov), 5-51 (Peter Moor, 32.1 ov), 6-123 (Harry Tector, 56.1 ov), 7-234 (Lorcan Tucker, 84.4 ov), 8-265 (Mark Adair, 98.3 ov), 9-289 (Andy McBrine, 111.2 ov), 10-292 (Graham Hume, 115.6 ov) • DRS
0.4 to JA McCollum, Big shout again, and this time Shakib has reviewed straightaway! This is an arm ball to the right hander that has pitched around off, and gone straight on with the arm and past the inside edge. Aleem Dar says no, but this is close... and ball tracking backs up Shakib's conviction. Three reds. McCollum has to go.. 1/1
6.3 to C Campher, Campher reviews straightaway after being given out caught behind. Length ball on off, turning away, Campher looked for the forward defence, Litton snapped it up and the Bangladeshis were convinced. Aleem Dar has raised his finger after a bit of consideration. There's a tiny little spike on ultraedge, and this Irish pack of cards continues to keep falling.. 13/4
3.4 to M Commins, given out LBW! Length ball outside off and turning back in, Commins goes back and is pinned above the knee roll right in front of the stumps. He's gone up for the review. Height could be the only thing that could save him here. It hasn't, umpire's call on clipping the top of the stumps. Commins has to go.. 7/2
5.1 to A Balbirnie, The bails are lit up! Arm ball from Taijul, Balbirnie looks to punch it off the backfoot, misses the ball and sees it go on to kiss the off stump. Ireland are in heaps of strife here.. 8/3
56.1 to HT Tector, huge appeal, and given! That looks very adjacent! Very full delivery on middle and off stump. Tector tries to be cute and looks for the paddle sweep. For a change, though, he misses the ball and it strikes him right in front of the stumps. The umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger but Tector wants to have another look. No bat involved, and Ball Tracking returns with three reds! Tector has to go!. 123/6
98.3 to MR Adair, What a ball! Pitches on off, turns away a little bit, gets the outside edge of Adair's bat, and Litton completes an easy catch to give Taijul his ninth wicket of the Test. 265/8
84.4 to LJ Tucker, He's smashed that straight to extra cover! It was a juicy wide half volley, Tucker nailed that cover drive, but Shoriful intercepts it at extra cover, times his jump well, and then pouches it on the second grab. 234/7
111.2 to AR McBrine, Ebadot does the trick! Fuller on off stump, and holds its line, McBrine's defensive prod is beaten and off stump is knocked back. Just the start that Bangladesh wanted this morning. 289/9
115.6 to GI Hume, And that is that! Length ball outside off, Hume looks to steer it behind square on the offside, gets a thick outside edge that Litton takes diving to his left. 292/10
32.1 to PJ Moor, edged and taken! Shoriful breaks this game open! Back of a length delivery slanted across outside off stump. Moor, for the first time today, has a loose waft at it and pays the price. Not much deviation from the surface but the lack of conviction in the stroke leads to a feather that is gobbled up by Litton!. 51/5

4.6 to Litton Das, Adair strikes and Litton cannot believe it! Ireland have their moment under the sun and Adair gives Litton a bit of a send-off. Bangs it short again, he goes for the pull. He is a tad early into the stroke and misses the ball. The ball ricochets off his helmet onto the back of the bat and then rolls onto the stumps at enough force to dislodge the off bail. "Get your sunglasses on," Adair seems to tell Litton!. 32/1
7.5 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, Edged and taken! McBrine is on the board now. A small check to see if it has carried to slip. Soft signal is not out. McBrine bowls this on a length just outside off, the line forces Shanto to play at that. He is on the back foot and just pushes at it before half-withdrawing seeing the ball spin away. But it is late and the ball takes the edge and goes low down to slip, where Balbirnie has his fingers nicely wrapped under the ball. Well, well, Bangladesh will now be under the pump in the face of an ecstatic Ireland.. 43/2
20.1 to Tamim Iqbal, and he strikes straightaway! This isn't a great ball, drags it down short, Tamim looks to send this over the midwicket fence with a pull shot but skies it around the midwicket region, Commins runs over from mid-on and completes a neat catch. 105/3
