12.2 to Shahriar Nafees, Nafees is gone too. This one too came in from round the wicket and again Nafees was cramped up and tried to play it quite similarly to the previous delivery : opening the bat face and trying to steer but this one bounced more and took the edge. 41/2
Albie Morkel822943.62343011
9.2 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim's in disbelief but he has to walk... Pitches on a good length a shade outside the offstump, Tamim pokes his bat out and there's a sound before the ball reaches the keeper. De Villiers the rest appeal and umpire Nadir Shah is convinced. Replays show the ball clipping the pad on the way through.. 34/1
15.1 to Mohammad Ashraful, Dust to Ash es . Death by aggression. Full in length, on the middle stump and he goes for a ugly heave and can only manage to send it to mid-on. Ashraful is livid with himself. But the deed has been done. Just 17 runs in this series. What a waste of a talent.. 61/3
17.6 to Nazimuddin, OMG! What happened there? They are in a suicide mode here. He walked right across the stumps and tried to slog a length delivery across the line but only skied it for Smith to get under it at midwicket. Horrible shot. What was he thinking? Was he thinking?. 72/4
38.6 to Mashrafe Mortaza, The ninth wicket is down. It was pretty short in length, outside the off stump and he top-edged a cut to the 'keeper. 135/9
Johan Botha8.503433.84364011
22.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, One more down. Shakib is cleaned up. Flighted from round the stumps, full, he tried to whip it to midwicket, missed and the ball bounded off the pad and on to the stumps.. 97/5
30.6 to Abdur Razzak, Another swipe across the line and de Villiers takes a very sharp catch. Razzak top-edged a intended slog and de Villiers managed to hold on to a tough chance.. 118/8
42.5 to Mosharraf Hossain, Bangladesh innings has been terminated. This time the batsman walks after nicking to de Villiers. Flighted around the off stump and edged behind. 143/10
Paul Harris1022612.60451020
27.4 to Dhiman Ghosh, bowled him! Harris slips in the arm ball on middle and off, Ghosh moves back and tries to cut, he gets beaten for pace and misses, Bangladesh are seven down, an abject performance so far. 106/7

5.2 to HH Gibbs, caught at covers. It landed on the off and middle and turned away from Gibbs who tried to force it off the back foot but hit it straight to covers. He was not in the right position and the ball turned a bit more than he thought.. 19/1
Shakib Al Hasan9.214705.03372310
Mosharraf Hossain602614.33202010
19.3 to AN Petersen, trapped in front. Quicker armer, on the middle stump line and it zipped off the track to strike him in front of the stumps.. 59/2
Farhad Reza512815.60195000
33.2 to AB de Villiers, done in by the nip-backer. It cut in from outside off stump, the bat came down outside the line and it hit the pad in front of middle and went on to disturb the furniture. He would have been out lbw even if it didn't go on to hit the stumps. But a refreshing innings from de Villiers. He came in and immediately upped the ante.. 138/3
