TOTAL142.2 Ov (RR: 2.87, 590 Mins)409
Fall of wickets: 1-66 (John Campbell, 20.4 ov), 2-87 (Shayne Moseley, 33.2 ov), 3-104 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 41.1 ov), 4-116 (Kyle Mayers, 47.5 ov), 5-178 (Jermaine Blackwood, 71.6 ov), 6-266 (Nkrumah Bonner, 101.3 ov), 7-384 (Joshua Da Silva, 136.4 ov), 8-396 (Alzarri Joseph, 137.6 ov), 9-398 (Jomel Warrican, 139.2 ov), 10-409 (Shannon Gabriel, 142.2 ov)
33.2 to S Moseley, chases a wide ball and inside-edged onto the stumps! This will disappoint Moseley immensely. Full and wide, and Moseley wants to chase at this. Looks to drive, and the ball takes an inside edge before crashing into leg stump. Grossly out of balance. Out after a 38-ball resistance. 87/2
47.5 to KR Mayers, that's a big wicket for Bangladesh! Abu Jayed pitches it up, and a touch wide. Perhaps a hint of swing away from the left-hander, and Mayers cannot help but have a nibble. Looks to drive, finds the outside edge, and Soumya Sarkar takes a good, sharp catch at wide slip. West Indies in a spot of bother now, in no more than a blink of an eye. 116/4
137.6 to AS Joseph, and he falls to the trap. After a lot of smart batting, Joseph falls into the plan Bangladesh have done. Back of a length, outside off, and Joseph swipes leg side once again. Takes an edge, and easy catch for Liton. Out four short of his highest Test score. This was a gift, of sorts, to Bangladesh. Applause for Joseph from the team management nonetheless. 396/8
139.2 to JA Warrican, that's his fourth! Full, just outside off stump. He pokes at it, and it takes the outside edge. Another simple one for Liton. Warrican playing inside the line of the ball, and Jayed is one short of a five-for. 398/9
101.3 to NE Bonner, Bonner is denied the century! Leg slip takes one as Mehidy gets one to straighten from around leg. Bonner looks to flick and gets it just off the edge. Mithun takes a fine catch, as this ball was dying on him. It's also Mehidy's 99th Test wicket. 266/6
20.4 to JD Campbell, has he fallen to the sweep again? Fullish delivery, and he looks to sweep. Loud appeal, and given, but Campbell has reviewed. The line was outside off, turning back in, and he took on the sweep despite this being a fairly full ball. It has definitely passed close to bat, but if there's no inside edge on this, he could be in trouble. UltraEdge seems to indicate a very fine tickle, actually. It might just be the general disturbance with the noise from the sweep. That's what the umpire thinks, and it's three reds on ball tracking. Bangladesh have that breakthrough. 66/1
71.6 to J Blackwood, against the run of play! Full, on off. Presses forward to drive, through the shot a bit too early. Lobs it back, and Taijul dives to his right to take the catch!. 178/5
136.4 to J Da Silva, another batsman out in the nineties! This is a full ball on off, and goes straight on with the arm. Da Silva looks to defend with the straight bat, but the ball goes between bat and pad, and hits middle stump. That's Taijul's 100th Test scalp in Bangladesh. Da Silva prods back to the dressing room in ultra-slow pace, a sign of how disappointed he is. The management is applauding him though. 384/7
142.2 to ST Gabriel, holes out at long on as he goes deep to pull, but hits it over the non-striker to the fielder in the deep. That's Taijul's fourth and West Indies are all out for 409. 409/10
41.1 to KC Brathwaite, golden arm! And that's a great catch in the slips. Brathwaite is shell shocked. Can't believe he's given his wicket in this manner. Length ball, just outside off. Tries to cut, but flies off the edge. Keeper dives to his right, but Shanto - at first slip - keeps his eyes on the ball, and pockets the catch. Falls three short of his fifty. 104/3

TOTAL96.5 Ov (RR: 3.05)296
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Soumya Sarkar, 0.6 ov), 2-11 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 2.2 ov), 3-69 (Mominul Haque, 14.6 ov), 4-71 (Tamim Iqbal, 15.5 ov), 5-142 (Mohammad Mithun, 45.1 ov), 6-155 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 49.2 ov), 7-281 (Litton Das, 91.2 ov), 8-281 (Nayeem Hasan, 91.5 ov), 9-283 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 92.4 ov), 10-296 (Abu Jayed, 96.5 ov)
0.6 to Soumya Sarkar, there's the early breakthrough, and it is good captaincy from Brathwaite! Uppish drive to one that slants into him, and his feet haven't really gone anywhere, and neither has his weight. Played towards short mid-wicket, and gleefully accepted. 1/1
2.2 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, edged, and taken at gully! This was put wider by Gabriel, and Shanto has had a swipe at it. This was much wider of him than the previous ball, and his feet don't go anywhere. Flies off the edge through to gully, where Bonner takes a sharp catch. 11/2
92.4 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Gabriel wins the battle agaisnt Mehidy! Fullish, on middle and off. He pushes at this, rather tentatively, and it's gone to he fielder at cover for a soft dismissal! Has Gabriel overstepped though? No! Fair ball. Mehidy has to go for 57. 283/9
14.6 to Mominul Haque, that's the wicket! Fired in a touch wider, and Mominul cannot resist having a drive at it. Fine edge, and a great take by Da Silva. This pitch has some extra bounce, especially as compared to Chattogram, and that has come in handy for the bowler!. 69/3
45.1 to Mohammad Mithun, excellent field placement! Short midwicket comes into play. Full ball just outside off, and he whips it off his pads. But mistimes the shot, ball goes in the air, and Kraigg Brathwaite dives to his right to take a diving catch. Umpire Saikat wants to confirm if the catch was clean or not, so asks the TV umpire. His soft signal is out and replays confirm it. Mithun's 86-ball vigil comes to a close. 142/5
49.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, oh dear, what have you done here, Mushfiqur? It's again a defensively bowled delivery, just a tad short in length, and he goes for the reverse sweep. Goes off the toe-end, and it almost loops in slow motion towards short cover. The West Indies players let out whoops of joy as the catch is collected. Cornwall is a hero. He's accounted for both overnight batsmen, by inducing errors. Rahim has to drag himself away!. 155/6
91.2 to Litton Das, umpire raises his finger! We're going upstairs because it could be an lbw or a caught dismissal. Full outside off, and he tries to paddle a fine sweep. Takes his front leg across, but he misses the shot. The ball turns sharply, misses the front leg, and hits the back leg before going in the air. The fielder at first slip anticipates the shot and runs behind the keeper to his left, and takes the catch after it pops up from the back leg. The fielders appeal in unison for caught and given. Liton reviews the decision but the TV umpire says that the ball has hit his bat before hitting his leg. Clean catch by first slip, so Liton has to go. Anticipation at its best. 281/7
91.5 to Nayeem Hasan, Blackwood makes amends! Holds on to this edged shot this time, and Cornwall has his five! Good length ball outside off. Angling in. Tries to defend off the front foot, but takes the edge, and the fielder takes a sharp catch moving to his right. 281/8
15.5 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim is gone too! It's a good length ball, and Tamim has plonked his front foot and then looked to flick this away through midwicket. Just skews it a bit, and it goes towards short midwicket, where Moseley accepts the catch gleefully. 71/4
96.5 to Abu Jayed, this has lifted off a length, and been taken at gully! Banged in with purpose by Joseph, and Jayed was poised to try and go forward, but ended up being surprised by the pace. Was on the hop as he hoped to negotiate it, but ended up playing it off the shoulder of the bat towards gully. West Indies are overjoyed with this effort, as they wind up with a 113-run lead. 296/10

Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 3.3 ov), 2-20 (Shayne Moseley, 8.3 ov), 3-39 (John Campbell, 16.4 ov), 4-50 (Jomel Warrican, 25.1 ov), 5-62 (Kyle Mayers, 31.1 ov), 6-73 (Jermaine Blackwood, 34.2 ov), 7-104 (Joshua Da Silva, 49.3 ov), 8-114 (Alzarri Joseph, 51.2 ov), 9-116 (Nkrumah Bonner, 52.1 ov), 10-117 (Rahkeem Cornwall, 52.5 ov)
16.4 to JD Campbell, oh dear, there's the third for Bangladesh! He's gone back to play another one. It's spun back in, taken the inside edge, bounced inside the crease, and then just gone on to disturb the top of leg stump. Campbell just cannot catch a break, can he?. 39/3
34.2 to J Blackwood, appeal for stumping! And Liton is convinced. The batsman holds his pose, wondering if his foot was back in. Full outside off. He tries to drive, but the ball goes through. Liton grabs and whips the bails off well, and the batsman's back leg is outside the line, just about. No part of his boot is inside, says the TV umpire. He's got to go!. 73/6
49.3 to J Da Silva, there's the wicket! Da Silva is forced into just planting his bat with a forward press, as the ball is flighted around off. It turns, takes the edge, and goes straight to slip. Underwhelming celebrations, because the home side realise this pitch is now offering some more grip and bounce than the previous few days. 104/7
51.2 to AS Joseph, off the leading edge, and picked up after a deflection off silly mid-off! Tossed up by Taijul, and he was looking to close the face on this. Went off the edge, and took a deflection off the leg of silly mid-off, and flew comfortably along to short cover. 114/8
3.3 to KC Brathwaite, short, and he looks to go back and whip this away. It's an appeal for caught behind, and wasn't given. Bangladesh have reviewed immediately! If he gets a wicket for this, he will consider himself a really lucky man. That was a really poor ball. Brathwaite has got a little tickle off the glove. In fact, off the little finger on his bottom hand. That is really unlucky, but a superb take by Liton Das!. 11/1
52.1 to NE Bonner, Bonner goes for the reverse, but is bowled! Tossed up by Nayeem, outside off, and he gets into a really awkward position. Possibly looking for the reverse swat, but that goes through his legs and disturbs the furniture. His vigil comes to an anti-climactic end. 116/9
52.5 to RRS Cornwall, taken at deep midwicket! Full, just outside off, and he goes for the big slog onto the leg side. In the air for ages, but Mushfiqur dives near the boundary line to take the catch. Bangladesh need 231 to win. 117/10
8.3 to S Moseley, that's the 100th Test wicket for Miraz. Just tosses this up a touch fuller, and Moseley plays a forward defence. It bounces, spins a bit, and flies through to second slip. Miraz has got to that mark the quickest, among Shakib Al Hasan, Taijul Islam and Mohammad Rafique. You will also notice that he's the first off-spinner. Indeed the first who doesn't bowl left-arm orthodox!. 20/2
25.1 to JA Warrican, length ball, around off, jags back a touch, and has struck him on the pads. Given out leg before, and they decide against the review. Perhaps the question would have been about both line and height, but both look pretty good at first sight. Unless Warrican thinks he had edged it, but he is convinced that's not the case. Jayed strikes, and even if it is the nightwatchman, it has an opening for Bangladesh. 50/4
31.1 to KR Mayers, length, gets it to jag back at him. Mayers is stuck in the crease. And this is given out. He has reviewed, though! Looks pretty adjacent. Just falls over a ball that was angling in. Bat got stuck in behind the pad, and the height is perfect as well. This should reflect three reds. In fact, it stays umpire's call on wickets, as it just grazes the top of leg stump. But Bangladesh will take that. Big wicket, considering his Chattogram heroics. Jayed has just reward. 62/5

Fall of wickets: 1-59 (Soumya Sarkar, 12.1 ov), 2-70 (Tamim Iqbal, 16.2 ov), 3-78 (Najmul Hossain Shanto, 21.3 ov), 4-101 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 30.2 ov), 5-115 (Mohammad Mithun, 33.2 ov), 6-147 (Mominul Haque, 41.1 ov), 7-153 (Litton Das, 44.2 ov), 8-163 (Taijul Islam, 50.1 ov), 9-188 (Nayeem Hasan, 55.4 ov), 10-213 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 61.3 ov)
21.3 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, good length, on middle and leg. Tries to flick, and it's a soft catch to short leg! Moseley under the helmet. Hugs for the fielder for that reflex catch and Shanto's torrid series ends with a 31-ball 11. 78/3
33.2 to Mohammad Mithun, sharp turn, and that has taken off from a length, and gone straight to leg slip! Mithun drags himself off from the crease. There's bounce again from Cornwall and that's what foxes Mithun. Not a long he did wrong, but perhaps didn't account for the sharp bite across this ball. West Indies must be feeling a sniff of a historic victory now. 115/5
44.2 to Litton Das, loose shot, and taken by Da Silva! Good length outside off, width offered to cut. Edged into the keeper's gloves!. 153/7
50.1 to Taijul Islam, loud appeal and given lbw! That's his fourth wicket. Full on off, sliding in, and past the bat's inside edge as he tries to defend. Hits the front leg, and the umpire says out. Batsman reviews right away but there's no spike on UltraEdge. Impact on middle, would've hit leg stump.. 163/8
30.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, is that the breakthrough? He's got one to rip across him, and Da Silva picks it up and exults. Given out, but Rahim has reviewed. Seems like the bat has taken the edge, if you ask me. The bat then goes on to hit the ground, but before that, there appears to be a decent deviation. Great bowling from Warrican. The spike is there, and what an inspired bowling change this has proved to be!. 101/4
41.1 to Mominul Haque, full, outside off. He shuffles across, tries to defend. It turns in, takes the inside edge, and flies to Cornwall at backward short leg! Warrican coming into play this innings. 147/6
61.3 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and taken by Cornwall at first slip! West Indies win the series 2-0! Mehidy is distraught. Length ball on off. Turning a bit away. Mehidy tries to poke, and Cornwall bends very low to take a supremely tricky catch. West Indies win by 17 runs!. 213/10
12.1 to Soumya Sarkar, taken? West Indies think it's out. Sarkar has not moved. Umpire does not raise his finger. West Indies review This was an overpitched ball outside off. Sarkar tries to cut. Takes an edge, hits the keeper's gloves, ball pops up in the air, and first slip - Cornwall - dives forward to hold on! This time Illingworth gets it wrong. For what it's worth, Sarkar started to walk as soon as WI reviewed. He knew he had nicked, but it's also his right to stay put if the on-field umpire hasn't given him out. Fair play from all parties. Also the introduction of the part-timer, the captain himself, works. 59/1
16.2 to Tamim Iqbal, golden arm! And Tamim falls after another good, brisk innings. Both openers fall to the part-timer. Full, just outside off. Tamim attempts the drive. Checks it slightly actually, and it goes straight to short cover, placed there for that very shot!. 70/2
55.4 to Nayeem Hasan, oh dear, Brathwaite's golden arm works again. But Bangladesh review. Full ball, starting outside leg stump but drifts in. Nayeem gets in front of the stumps and shoulders his arms. Hits his front leg and lbw given. Nayeem will survive this dismissal only if it pitched outside leg, but it doesn't. Pitched on leg, hits on middle, and crashing into off. West Indies need 1 wicket to win. 188/9
