Bangladesh’s 2nd inning: The tigers roared this time…finally. The opening partnership was of 82 runs, which is quite good for Bangladesh. The second wicket partnership between Tamim Iqbal (128 in 243) and Junaid Siddique (78 in 160) was the most valuable one which was worth 146 runs. Tamim got his hundred today. Soon after he reached his 100 he switched gear and started to play attacking yet sensible cricket. In the over he got out he hit 4 consecutive fours. Junaid also played very well and secured his fifty. If Bangladesh wants to win this match, they will have to play really good and at the same time make some strokes so that the bowlers of Bangladesh cricket team can feel safe. When the day came to an end Shakib Al Hasan (26* in 40) and Mushfiqur Rahim (28* in 59) were unbeaten. And yet another very disappointing inning from Mohammad Ashraful who scored just 3.

Fall of wickets: 1-82 (Imrul Kayes, 28.3 ov), 2-228 (Tamim Iqbal, 77.6 ov), 3-258 (Junaid Siddique, 86.3 ov), 4-261 (Mohammad Ashraful, 87.1 ov), 5-267 (Raqibul Hasan, 88.6 ov)
