Andre Nel1022432.40472011
13.4 to Shahriar Nafees, 100th ODI wicket for Nel. Fullish, outside off stump, moving away and Nafees goes back and across and tries to cut - not the length for it - and edges it behind. Nel is ecstatic and his team-mates rush to congratulate him.. 53/2
46.5 to Abdur Razzak, low full toss, swiped low to covers where Smith takes it. The batsman thinks it might have bounced, the two umpires confer and he is given out. They don't refer it to third umpire. Smith claimed the catch. Replays don't confirm or deny it. Akhtar Ali Khan, on air, believes it bounced. I will wait for another replay to confirm his doubt.. 175/8
46.6 to Shahadat Hossain, yorker fetches him another wicket. It crashed into the front boot in front of leg and middle. The umpire Enamul reckons it would have clipped the leg. Hmm... 176/9
Charl Langeveldt913223.55363010
7.4 to Junaid Siddique, First wicket is down. Siddique is back in the hut. Banged in short and he top-edged a pull to Harris, who ran forward from mid-on to take a comfortable catch.. 30/1
37.4 to Raqibul Hasan, what a soft dismissal. Driven straight to mid-off. Full in length, outside off stump, he stretched forward and drove straight to the fielder.. 138/6
Albie Morkel8.213023.60343001
20.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, trapped by a yorker. Full and on the middle and leg stump line, swung in late to evade the drive. Ash reckons it would have missed the leg stump but Umpire Enamul believes it would have crashed into the leg stump as the batsman had not taken a great forward stride.. 79/3
48.2 to Syed Rasel, the outside edge is taken and Bangladesh restricted for 178. Full in length, angling away and he tried to drive on the up and is gone.. 178/10
Johan Botha1004314.30302100
43.4 to Mosharraf Hossain, trapped in front. Quicker one from round the stumps and he was caught dead plumb in front. The bat was held behind the pad and Hossain's misery ends.. 154/7
Paul Harris1013023.00371001
24.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, caught at midwicket. The pitch is getting increasingly slower and stroke play is getting difficult. He came down the track, trying to drive to long-on but couldn't reach the pitch of the delivery that stopped on him a touch and sent it straight to the fielder.. 89/4
34.4 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim holes out to long-on. Valiant knock comes to an end. He charged out to Harris and heaved straight to the fielder. Out for 82. Well played but perhaps, he could have carried on. Wrong time to get out.. 131/5

28.4 to HH Gibbs, caught in front by an armer that kept low. Gibbs rocked back to pull but was undone by the lack of bounce.. 143/1
