BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Umar Gul28110233.6411814000
6.6 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim falls, the change in length does the trick, probably the first attempted bouncer of the day, banged in short on middle and Tamim went for the hook, didn't keep it down, got a top edge and Cheema judged it well at fine leg, tricky catch since he had to move backwards but he tackled it well. 16/2
64.2 to Shahriar Nafees, Nafees has to walk back, misses out on a well-deserved ton, agony in the crowd, banged in short by Gul and Nafees, while trying to sway out of the way, gloved it to the keeper. Excellent delivery from Gul, was quick and surprised Nafees but a sad end to an excellent knock. 223/5
94.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, Mushfiqur goes and Pakistan will now bowl at the tail, short outside leg stump and Mushfiqur tried to turn that fine, gloved it to the keeper. 305/7
Aizaz Cheema2647332.8012111000
1.6 to Nazimuddin, Tarapore raises his finger, nipped back in sharply from outside off and Nazimuddin let it go, he didn't expect it to move in so sharply, the only issue there was height but the umpire had no problem, despite a very stifled appeal from the bowler Cheema but decibel levels were much higher behind the wicket. We need to take another look at the replay, to the naked eye it seemed it was going over but I may be wrong. 0/1
7.4 to Mahmudullah, Pakistan are on top and the Bangladesh top order is rattled, nipped back in from a good length outside off, he's moved it about this morning and got enough nip on that one to beat him through the gate as he played back to it. 21/3
13.2 to Nasir Hossain, another one goes! Cheema takes three, a hint of movement, just a hint and that's enough to snare Nasir. Short of a good length outside off and he flirts with it, can't resist, gets a thin nick and Adnan makes no mistake, promising start, a not too unpredictable end. 43/4
Mohammad Hafeez932703.00414000
Saeed Ajmal24.236422.631055100
105.5 to Elias Sunny, Tarapore raises his finger, was the doosra, turned in from a good length outside off, Sunny got forward to defend, got an thin inside edge and Sunny walks back to the pavilion shaking his head. It seemed to me initially that the impact may have been outside the line of off stump, but the replays showed the deflection off the bat. 331/8
107.2 to Robiul Islam, Bangladesh have been bowled out, tossed up, landed on leg stump, was the doosra, moved towards middle and off and Robiul was struck on the back pad while playing forward to that one. 338/10

Shahadat Hossain1618205.126211006
Robiul Islam2337813.3910711006
129.3 to Asad Shafiq, reward for Robiul! He bowls a delivery similar to the previous one, aims for a fuller length and gets it to swing in, Shafiq tries to whip it away but fails to cover the movement, hit on the pads pretty much in line with the leg stump. 389/6
Nazmul Hossain2456122.5411610000
4.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, gets a wicket off his first ball in Test cricket in seven years, the faintest of nicks to the keeper, good length outside off, just a hint of away movement, Hafeez got forward and played at it and edged it to the keeper. 23/1
83.3 to Taufeeq Umar, edged, and taken! Well bowled Nazmul, he's worked Umar over with his relentlessness. A spark of excellence this from Bangladesh. Pitched well up on middle and off, once again lands on the threadwork and angles across sharply. Umar was forward and had to play at it. He got a low outside edge that shot across towards second slip, who held on at shin height. Very well taken.. 245/3
Mahmudullah1524503.00676000
Shakib Al Hasan40.578262.001967000
51.4 to Azhar Ali, a beauty from the Bangladeshi Superman! Shakib gets the runs, Shakib gets the wickets. Tossed up from wide of the stumps, it drifts in towards middle and off and spins away sharply. Azhar was prodding forward in hope, but he wasn't to the pitch and the ball took a thid outside edge into Rahim's gloves. Yet another 50+ sub-100 effort for Azhar Ali. Is he Pakistan's Shane Watson?. 150/2
120.1 to Misbah-ul-Haq, some relief for Bangladesh! Misbah was shaping for a powerful sweep, he tried to fetch that from around the off stump, the ball flew off the top edge of the bat and Mahmudullah Riyad, who's been alert all morning, took it easily. 359/5
140.1 to Abdur Rehman, this one sticks! Good reflexes from Mahmudullah, Rehman tries to slash it wide of slip down to third man, rocks back, bit of extra bounce and the ball flies off the top edge and Mahmudullah cups it to his left, makes up for the catch he spilled earlier in the opening session. 430/7
152.2 to Umar Gul, Gul goes for the big swing, top-edges it towards mid-on, the ball swirls high, Gul was certain that skier was going to be taken, turns out he's right as it is safely pouched, relief for Shakib, Mushfiqur sports a huge grin. 464/8
152.5 to Saeed Ajmal, Shakib gets two in the over, and that's five in the innings, Ajmal looking for the sweep, gets a bottom-edge onto the stumps, what a match this is for Shakib, his highest score and then a five-for. 465/9
154.5 to Adnan Akmal, Pakistan are finally dismissed and Shakib takes six! Floated wide of the leg stump, Adnan made room and chipped down the track, the ball kept low and beat the bat, he didn't bother trying to make his ground, Mushfiqur tried whipping off the bails but at first attempt failed to break the stumps, did it in the second attempt though! They can all afford a laugh. 470/10
Elias Sunny2749513.5111413000
97.2 to Younis Khan, thin edge and Sunny gets his man! Nice delivery there, tossed up outside off, draws Younis forward to defend, perhaps a bit more bounce than he expected, Mushfiqur juggles and takes the catch. 293/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Umar Gul1343422.61676010
4.5 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim is flabbergasted at the decision but Doctrove isn't changing his mind, Gul responds with a bouncer, Tamim tries to hook but the ball hit his helmet and lobbed to Misbah at first slip, Tamim doesn't even glance at the umpire while Pakistan celebrate, he's stunned when Doctrove sends him off. I need to see another replay of that. 24/1
4.6 to Shahriar Nafees, Gul's on a hat-trick! This was more straightforward, lands on a good length on middle and leg and straightens, Nafees is trapped at the crease and the ball clips him on the top flap of the pad in line with the off stump. 24/2
Aizaz Cheema1526124.066812000
22.1 to Mahmudullah, that was needless to say the least, the crowd is stunned, Mahmudullah decides to chase a delivery wide outside off, he tries to loft it straight, presumably, and ends up getting a top edge down to deep point, a hush around the stadium, a set batsman goes. 76/4
28.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, probably the biggest blow for Bangladesh and they're not yet past the deficit, Cheema continues round the wicket, angles it inwards, Shakib tries to steer it down to third man, Azhar judges it well diving to his right at gully. 95/5
Abdur Rehman27125141.881426200
15.3 to Nazimuddin, trapped at the crease! Rehman bowls it flat and straight, the ball skids off the surface, Nazimuddin is stranded at the crease, the ball breaches his defenses. 54/3
69.4 to Nasir Hossain, finally some relief for Pakistan! Nasir's bowled through the gate, the arm ball from Rehman lands on middle and goes through straight, breaches Nasir's defenses, a hush around the ground. Nevertheless, a wonderful knock by Nasir, he has a bright future as a Test batsman. 212/6
75.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, I'm not too sure why he did that! An anti-climax considering how well had been concentrating, he decides to give Rehman the charge, the bowler bowls it flatter, Mushfiqur miscues the loft completely and the ball lands safely in Ajmal's hands at mid-off. 221/7
77.5 to Shahadat Hossain, Superman Younis takes a blinder! One for the gallery! Tossed up outside off, Shahadat can't resist a swish, the ball takes the bottom half of the bat and flies to Younis' right at first slip, Younis's anticipation made the catch possible, stretched every sinew and muscle to reach out for it and plucked it mid-air. 226/8
Saeed Ajmal23.165522.371126000
80.5 to Elias Sunny, the doosra was too good for him! Comes round the wicket, Sunny who was quite solid in defense before this decided to drive, the ball sneaked through the gap between bat and pad and took the off stump. 228/9
82.1 to Robiul Islam, That's his 50th wicket of 2011, certainly one of the easier ones, Robiul gives the charge, fails to pick the doosra from round the wicket, easy stumping for Adnan. 234/10

Nazmul Hossain511913.80203000
6.2 to Taufeeq Umar, a wicket! Taufeeq was looking to up the tempo as Pakistan race against the light, he charges out and miscues an attempted big hit to midwicket, Taufeeq's stay ends early, the bat turns in his hand as he plays that shot, that stroke was prompted by a string of 24 dot balls. 7/1
Shakib Al Hasan1014714.70332100
15.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, Shahadat judges that well in the gloom! Hafeez shapes to slog but doesn't connect well, miscues it towards long-on, Shahadat runs forward and takes the catch easily. 70/2
