    6.5 much closer lbw shout, looked like it pitched in line and is headed for the stumps, the finger goes up soon enough and Tamim reviews it. No inside edge there, fair gap actually, and ball-tracking says it has pitched in line, and it has straightened enough to just clip the top of the stumps so the decision stays out but Bangladesh do not lose their review because of the umpire's call 16/2
    3.1 that's an excellent catch running towards the boundary from Lockie Ferguson. Boult has struck early again and will Liton be happy with that shot? Came down the track and lofted that pretty high on the leg side with a straight bat, but he hardly got anything on that to get the distance he would have liked. Ferguson from mid-on runs back towards the boundary and does just enough to get both hands to it without having to put in a dive 5/1
    12.2 and he's taken a wicket after all those wides! No dangerous pace, hardly any movement - just enough with the angle - but it's the accuracy outside off that tempts Soumya to drive. And as he does, the ball takes a thick outside edge to fly to Taylor at wide slip 48/3
    17.6 oh he's chopped on again! Outside off from Ferguson, just enough room for the batsman to push it towards point or third man but Mushfiqur doesn't use his feet at all and stick his bat out, gets a thick inside edge and onto the stumps. Big relief for Taylor and Ferguson 81/4
    34.3 through him! Looks like Mithun had made the decision to go after everything, possibly because of his hamstring trouble. This was a slider from Astle, at a length on middle stump. Went straight on and tonked leg stump as he looked to play the cut 168/6
    20.5 thin edge to the keeper! Loose from Mahmudullah. Short of a length ball just outside off. Gets leg side of it and looks to run it through short third. A decent take from Latham. Only marginal turn on that 93/5
    43.5 that's almost like catching practice and Neesham takes a good one at point. Soft dismissal there for the short of length ball outside off that was much slower - Sabbir merely stuck his bat out with no follow through or power, and the ball ballooned away to point where Neesham dived to his left to just get his fingers under the ball 206/8
    40.2 six down, 10 overs to go and he goes for another attacking stroke that results in a top-edge and a really simple catch for Nicholls at point. Mehidy gave the charge again by making some room and slashed hard outside of, got a top-edge that went pretty high and Nicholls got under it easily 190/7
    45.5 oh he's flicked the ball onto his back leg and it has deflected onto the stumps. Ferguson pitched it up on the stumps, trying the yorker again, and Saifuddin flicked the ball to leg while falling over a bit but only edged the ball onto his back foot and the ball then rolled on to hit the stumps. Another soft dismissal 211/9
    49.4 Trent Boult with another spectacular diving catch, the series was incomplete without that so far. Mashrafe went across to stick the bat in the ground inside the crease and he tucked the ball behind square but towrards Boult as he leapt to his left and pushed it with both hands 226/10
