143-5 - Mortaza has turned to Shafiul who wraps Trott on the pads but with the angle it is heading to the leg side. Shafiul was tidy in his earlier spell and is tidy again not allowing Trott any space to place his strokes. A touch of movement in to the right hander off the pitch keeps Trott cautious and mid wicket busy.
143-5 - Mohammed Ashraful is handed the ball and trundles in for some flighted off spin. Meanwhile on the England balcony Strauss, Flower and Collingwood consult with the doctor over Ian Bell's ability to bat. Six! That'll ease pressure on Wright. A full toss on the leg side and he cashes in. Given that evidence it is a wonder why Ashraful was given an over. He surely won't be given another.
134-5 - Another fumble, and another sign of nerves, as Trott picks up two more. Rubel bounces in to Wright who fends away awkwardly, but the slip is no longer in place and again, a fumble at third man gives away the extra run. Next ball and the slip is moved back into place with Rubel beating Wright outside off. Wright just doesn't look comfortable against Rubel.
129-5 - Two wides at the beginning of the over mean that this Shakib over will be slightly slower than the last one. 247 days since Bangladesh won an international match, do they have it in them to finish this one off? There are runs down the ground for Trott and a fumble at long-on shows signs of nerves from the Tigers.
122-5 -The man who did the initial damage is brought back in an encouragingly attacking move from Mortaza. Rubel is back to strike another telling blow and remove one of Wright or Trott. He gets a beauty to shape away from Trott and muffled appeals are turned down. Trott gets off the strike and a slip moves in to place for Wright. He is nearly brought into the action as Wright plays and misses unconvincingly.
119-5 - Luke Wright finds his second run from his ninth delivery as the pressure on him begins to grow. Bangladesh are trying to slowly strangle England with the pressure and are racing through their overs in an attempt to increase that pressure. Record time for that Shakib over.
117-5 - Luke Wright is the new man and the last of England's recognised batsmen, meaning that this partnership is pretty important. Both players realise it and have gone defensive against Razzak.
115-5 - Wicket! Yardy was never fluent and paid the price trying to overcome his frustrations. Shakib bowled the first delivery of the over over the wicket but then with Yardy and Trott exchanging strike he went around the stumps. A slightly short ball was too full to pull, and kept a fraction low to crash into middle stump as Yardy tried to pull. Well bowled by Shakib with a slower, flatter delivery.
113-4 - Razzak is around the wicket to Trott who can do nothing with a couple that pitch and straighten. Razzak then lets him off the hook with width and poor length giving Trott two to the cover sweeper, and then four through the leg side field.
107-4 - Yardy cracks a drive through extra cover but some fantastci fielding on the fence prevents the boundary. Yardy returns to strike and faces four dot balls, meaning that he now has nine from 21 balls and is just a little tied down.
103-4 - Trott is thwarted by impressive fielding at short thirdman to keep the over down to just one run. The Bangladeshi's appear up for this in the field and Jamie Siddons is tensely standing field-side, willing his players on.
102-4 - Shafiul is less accurate to the right handed Trott who gets enough pad on it to find four legbyes, moving England passed the 100 mark. Trott then defends to mid-on and he is looking very comfortable despite the troubles of his batting partners so far. The required rate is just under five, so need to panic and Trott will take his time. Another elegant drive straight at cover fetches no runs.
98-4 - Trott and Yardy each push a single into their respective legsides before Trott makes the most of the off side sweeper. Another single for Yardy and then Trott makes it five from the over, the batsmen just happy to take what they can and get through this tricky period.
93-4 - Shafiul is probing a difficult line just wide outside off stumo and moving it away from the left handed Yardy. The handful of Tigers' fans are enjoying themselves, perhaps eyeing a first victory for their team in 24 times of trying. Yardy is patient, and sees out a maiden from Shafiul.
93-4 - Wicket! Razzak strikes again, this time legitimately, and it's the masive scalp of Eoin Morgan! Morgan just played all around that one. The game is seriously on now! Yardy is the new man, and after him there is only Wright to come of any major pedigree. Time for Stuart Broad to find some batting form? Trott and Yardy are tentative, it's is looking tricky for the batsmen at present.
90-3 - The stage is set for Eoin Morgan to save the day again, and he's at the crease now. Remember England are effectively four down what with Ian Bell injured. It's a real test of the England middle-order, and the resilience of Jonathan Trott. Shafiul is on for his second over, his first went for ten and that was all he got. The fast bowler finds the edge of Morgan, but the only fielder in place in that area is a wide gully fielder who is too wide to be of any use.
86-3 - Wicket! Collingwood is gone! lbw to Razzak and unfortunate to be given out off a rather thick inside edge. Perhaps these things work in swings and round-a-bouts after the earlier decision went his way. Still, two wrongs don't make a right.
The players are taking a break for refreshments, hence the brief lack of action.
83-2 - Rubel to Collingwood, dot ball, dot ball and then six! He pounces on a slightly short one and sends it at pace over the legside fence. There's only one scoring shot off the over with Collingwood defensive off the rest of the over.
77-2 - Just a couple of runs for Trott as he flicks one enough to take two as fine leg runs around to do the fielding. That's the end of the second powerplay, so Bangladesh are in with a shout here if their spinners can put some pressure on these two batsmen.
75-2 - This, I'm afraid, is rather typical of Bangladesh cricket. Rubel Hossain bowls five great deliveries to Collingwood, who is in a defensive mode. However with a maiden seemingly a certainty, he then fires one down the legside and concedes five wides. Pressure gone, and he'll have to start all over again.
70-2 - Cheap over for Mortaza despite a poor piece of fielding at midwicket which allows Collingwood a single as a clip goes straight through the man. The required rate is hovering around 4.5 per over at the moment.
68-2 - Superb timing from Trott, who gets on top of a bouncing ball to push it off his hips for four through midwicket. However he follows the next ball - a quick one outside off - the next ball and nearly follows Kieswetter in nicking off. Rubel's pace has been excellent, and has caused real problems hwne it's come to the batsmen picking up the length outside off.
63-2 - Bowling powerplay taken by Bangladesh, and Mortaza returns with some lateral movement appearing for the quick bowlers. Collingwood very nearly dabbles with a short ball outside off but pulls his edge away in the nick of time. Decent contest on here all of a sudden, but Bangladesh need another wicket to cause real panic. Incidentally HotSpot didn't pick up anything on Collingwood's bat during that alleged edge in the last over.
61-2 - WICKET! Rubel is pumped! And he has to restrain himself before he gives Kieswetter a full send-off. His first ball of the over had been too wide, and thrashed behind square for four by Kieswetter, but the next one was straighter. It was the same length though, which led Kieswetter to play the same shot, but without the width he ends up getting an edge through to the keeper. Paul Collingwood is in at four, and he gets away with a clear edge first ball! There was a loud nick there as he flashed outside off stump, the whole Bangladesh side went up and started celebrating, and somehow Richard Kettleborough didn't hear it. That would have put Bangladesh right in the game, and they have every right to feel aggrieved if Snicko and the tv audio are to be believed.
54-1 - Mortaza replaces himself with the man who captained the side for so long in his absence, Shakib Al Hasan. He's someone who can generally get the odd one to misbehave, and he does manage to draw Trott forward and beat him with a bit of turn. Trott has the final say though, driving a fuller ball beautifully through extra cover for four.
49-1 - There's been a chat about the running between overs, because Kieswetter lets out a great booming "NO!!!" after Strauss hits the second ball to point. Strauss then comes down the wicket to smash a drive through extra cover for four, before getting a little glove past short fine leg, who gets back to limit them to two. WICKET! But Strauss charge ends there, much to the aggressive delight of Rubel Hossain. The England captain tried to help a bouncer over the slip cordon but the ball bounced a touch higher than he expected and took the glove on its way through to Jahurul Isla, Bangladesh's keeper today. Jonathan Trott is the new man.
43-0 - England are in full swing now, with Strauss tickling one off his legs for four to fine leg, and Kieswetter advancing down the pitch to slash Mortaza over long-off for six. He sliced that quite badly but threw enough at it to clear the rope by a good ten yards. In between those boundaries Strauss was lucky not to be run out after an appalling piece of running. Kieswetter was mostly to blame because it was his call and he made it late, leaving Strauss to scramble to the non-striker's end, diving in in the nick of time because the bowler had to relay the throw from backward point.
31-0 - The Razzak experiment has gone bad so Mortaza calls for Shafiul Islam, but he starts with a wide delivery outside off stump, feeding Strauss' favourite shot: the cut behind square for four. Strauss then shows that he's learnt from his mistake at Trent Bridge, when he was run out by a direct hit because he didn't dive - here he's sent back by Kieswetter but is easily home because he's willing to get his clothes dirty. The final delivery is full on his pads, and he merrily flicks it through midwicket for four.
19-0 - Mortaza's length has been excellent so far - only one ball was a touch short - and he's also managing to tuck Strauss up with a tight, wicket-to-wicket line. So there's just a single as Strauss does well to ride a straight ball down to third man.
18-0 - Good batting from England, who stamp their authority on Razzak after realising that there isn't any turn on offer. First Kieswetter pulls through the gap between midwicket and mid-on, and then Strauss comes down the track to hit Razzak back over his head for six. That was a safe stroke because the field was and he got to the pitch of the ball.
6-0 - There's just a little bit in this pitch for the bowlers, and Mortaza manages to twice beat Strauss outside the off stump without finding the crucial edge. However he then drops a fraction short and Strauss just manages to pull him over midwicket. Deep square leg gets round to cut off the boundary though, so it's a relatively slow start for England, who are probably on the cautious side because they're a batsman short and can afford a pragmatic approach.
4-0 - There hasn't been much enterprising cricket from Bangladesh so far, but here's some as left-arm Abdur Razzak opens the bowling. Andrew Strauss takes some time to come to terms with the skid off the pitch before finally glancing one through square leg for a single.
3-0 - After a shortened break - England took longer than they should have with their 50 overs - we're back underway with both batsmen immediately off the mark. It's a tidy start for Mashrafe Mortaza.
Bangladesh, much like the first ODI, have failed to cash in on a solid start and the final twenty overs or so were largely dissapointing with too many wickets and too few runs. There was very little in the way of intent at the end and the Tigers finished arguably 50 short of where they had at one stage looked capable of reaching. England's fielding was patchy at best and Ajmal Shahzad had a couple of unfortunate moments. He made up for it with his bowling however, fetching three for 41 and making the breakthrough when his captain required, just when Kayes and Islam were starting to get comfortable. England should cruise to their target, but will be without the injured Ian Bell, giving Jonathan Trott a tailor-made opportunity to stake his claim at three. We shall see you again in thirty minutes or so...
236-7 - Wicket! Mashrafe gets a full toss and wallops it down the ground, but with the second a possibility both batsmen end up at the non-strikers end. Terrible mix-up which brings the end of Mortaza's innings. Mahmudullah manages to get the strike for the last ball from which he finds two and takes the total to 236.
231-6 - Collingwood and Morgan combine to save the boundary off the first ball, but Mahmudullah picks up three. A top edge from a hook shot then earns four for the Tigers captain. Braod is consistently going short to Mortaza who looks particularly awkward on the hook. The slower version of the short ball is proving particularly usefull for Broad. Somehow there was a no-ball in there which nobody seemed to have noticed, and Braod gets punished for six over longon with the extra delivery! Broad has a mutter to the umpire which he needs to learn how not to do, hard to know where that no-ball was even now, apparently for a bouncer that got up too high.
215-6 - Swipe and miss again from Mortaza. For once there is some brilliance from England in the field as Yardy hits the stumps from square leg, the batsman is comfortably home though. Anderson too puts in some atheltic fielding, stopping off his own bowling and then shying. Unfortunately for him he misses and allows an overthrow. Sharp stop though. Boundary! Mortaza makes a connection and hits four through cover, that's the first four since over 37.
207-6 - Still the Banglashi's push singles around. There is very little going on at the moment. It is the second over of the powerplay, forgive me for not having mentioned that but it seems not to have made much of a difference to the Tiger's approach. Mortaza gets out the pull shot briefly, only one there, and then misses a full delivery with a swipe. Broad completes the over with a well developed slower-ball.
202-6 - Ajmal Shahzad enters his final over, and continues to hit the surface hard, beating Mortaza with pace and bounce. Again England disappointing in the field as an overthrow allows an extra run to take the Tigers past 200. Shahzad throws in a yorker and finishes with particularly decent figures of 10 overs, three for 40.
198-6 - Ian Bell apparently has an injury serious enough to rule him out of the upcoming Tests against Pakistan, that provide the easy route for the selectors in getting Eoin Morgan into the Test batting line-up. Meanwhile back to the action, the batsmen attempt a single and with a slight bit of hesitation Mahmudullah is pushes to make his ground. Collingwood shies and Mahmudullah puts out a glove and just brashes the ball as it heads stump-wards. The English appeal but it was not hitting the stumps and the reaction was an instinctive act of self-preservation. Still, only two from the over.
196-6 - Not even a wicket is enough to remove the frown from Shahzad's brow. He is looking somewhat serious, perhaps after some a tough day for him in the field, one where the ball has followed him around. Shahzad's slower ball sticks in the wicket and Kayes spoons it up to Collingwood at point. 76 from 111 for the opening batsman. The skipper Mortaza is the new man, and begins unconvincingly dangling his bat outside off.
194-5 - Good over for England, not for Bangladesh. The run rate has slumped and Mahmudullah is unable to turn it around, battling to get the ball too far off the square. Sloppy fielding yet again from England allows the fourth and final single of the over.
190-5 - Yardy darts in the first ball for a dot ball. Kayes then takes it upon himself to go down the wicket and hits over the top but on the bounce to the fielder just gets one. The over goes for four leaving Yardy with very respectable figures on nought for 39 from ten.
186-5 - How long will we wait for a Bangladeshi attempt to push the rate, ten to go and five wickets in hand? Kayes has a dip at Anderson but misses, worthwhile though given that midoff and midon are in. Thirteen fours and a six in the innings thus far, and no more in this particular over, only three singles.
183-5 - Yardy starts with a wide down leg, wasteful that. The next delivery he is around the wicket, in with the angle and would have hit had Mahmudullah had missed his cut shot. It is three however with Jonathan Trott doing the sweeping on fence. Kieswetter briefly gets overly-excited by a stumping, Kayes was at least two-feet inside his crease on that occasion.
176-5 - Here is Bangladesh's chance to accelerate, James Anderson is back on. That is slightly harsh, and Anderson has started this spell well, beating the new man Mahmudullah outside off stump. He only has two men back, at fine leg and third man and only concedes two from the over, well bowled Jimmy Anderson.
174-5 - Wicket! Ashraful run out by a country mile! That is seriously disappointing. Most times Ashraful gets out it is disappointing because he is such a talented batsman, it seems a shame. He lifts Yardy over cover and then sets off, the ball just evading Shahzad. But the Tigers opt for the second and Ashraful is well short as Kieswetter takes off the bails.
172-4 - Ashraful takes a charge and blasts Broad through the covers for four! Ian Botham on the tv commentary is giving the Bangladeshi a bit of stick for not showing more intent, but they've recently lost two wickets and Ashraful is new to the wicket, so maybe they should be allowed another over or two to push a couple more ones and twos? The plucky little right hander is hitting out at Broad again, hooking and top edging high. There should be enough time for a fielder to get under it, but Ashraful has places it well off the edge, avoiding the effort of Luke Wright. Wright went with one hand when he probably could have taken it with two. Broad tries again to get Ashraful on the short ball, but it is called wide.
165-4 - Five fielders inside the circle as the spinner returns. Good three-over burst from Shahzad there, he returned to pick up a wicket as requested. Ashraful and Kayes still manage to find singles, a tip and run approach nearly resulting in the end of Kayes. He is now on 64.
162-4 - With the manadatory newer white ball comes Stuart Broad back into the attack. Following the first single umpire Rauf has a word with Kayes for what appears to be running on the wicket. Replays confirm that he has just trundled down the middle, nothing malicious just wandered off course. Broad then squares up Ashraful but the edge finds the gap past point and there is a single.
158-4 - Luke Wright makes a stop that David James would have been proud of to a hard hit drive from Kayes. IUnfortunately it's a chance gone begging though as he fails to hang on to it and in the process of hitting the deck causes damage to his shoulder. Surely not another English fielder injured! He seems to be ok after a few stretches. Kayes opens the blade off the final ball to pick up one and retain the strike.
155-4 - Kayes is frustrated by his inability to get Collingwood away, but eventually finds two on the cut. An athletic Jonathan Trott, surprising but true, gets around to cut off the boudary impressively.

152-4 - Shahzad has been given a job to do by Strauss, to strike, and he's hitting the deck hard, wrapping Ashraful uncomfortably on the glove. Two singles from the over is all the Tigers can manage. Drinks break it is!
150-4 - Wicket! So disappointing for Bangladesh, Shakib commits batting suicide by steping inside a straight one from Collingwood and missing with a paddle sweep. Bowled for one from three balls. He won't want to see the replay, or his coach on his return to the dressing room. Fresh from Heathrow another former skipper has his chance, can Mohammed Ashraful get in and push Bangladesh on to a large total? He starts with a single as Collingwood completes an impressive over, just one from it plus the wicket.
149-3 - Is Shahzad capable of being England's strike-man? Andrew Strauss is banking on it. But the Tiger's pair are running extremely efficiently and building English frustration with singles taken straight to midon and midoff, who have been brought in specifically to cut off the one. Jahurul then blasts one down the ground for four, great batting! Wicket! Great batting but it's the end for Jahurul off the next delivery, edging through to Kieswetter! Shahzad makes the breakthrough for his skipper! Former Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan is off the mark immediately with one off the hips. Jahurul gone for 40 from 53 deliveries. An effort ball to end the over catches Kayes by surprise, he fends away and lifts the ball awakwards inbetween three converging fielders, fortunate he was.
142-2 - Collingwood is on for his third, and tempts Kayes into a lofted drive which falls just short of long-on. For the rest it is a collection of singles dropped around the square. The game is just drifting along which Bangladesh will be happy with. Kayes will be eyeing a long stay and Strauss and his side seem to be lacking a hit man.
137-2 - The begining of another Yardy over sees Jahurul attempting a single into the offside, but he is sent back and is nearly found short of his ground after hitting straight to cover. A better throw from Wright may have had him in trouble. Yardy then sends one legside to the left handed Kayes, it bounces abnormally and the batsmen is caught on the arm guard as the ball trickles away for three. Wides given though.
130-2 - Imrul Kayes finds a single and moves on to fifty! That's the fourth time he's managed the feat in ODI cricket. A deserving round of applause, it has taken him 74 balls but he's kept the innings together.
127-2 - The field is spread out for Yardy allowing space for easy singles through midwicket and the to the cover fence. Yardy then drifts one down the legside which is duly called wide. The Bangladeshi pair are not all about easy singles, as they run well to pick up a pair of twos.
120-2 - Another change of bowling with Paul Collingwood entering the fray. He enjoyed a handy outing at Trent Bridge, bowling nine overs for just 32. The batsmen adopt a similar approach to Collingwood as they did to Wright, just dabbing the ball around for singles.
116-2 - Yardy strays down leg and the ball tickles off the pad of Kayes, Kieswetter is unable to cut it off and two leg byes are conceded.
113-2 - There are singles on offer with Wright bowling and the batsmen are taking advantage, with third man generally the area of choice. One would hardly imagine skipper Strauss is too concerned though.
108-2 - Yardy bustles through another over, economical as ever, just the two runs off it.
106-2 - A mishit slog from Jahurul brings up the Bangladesh hundred but it could easily have brought up their third wicket as the ball skewed away off the bat. Width offered by Wright and Kayes upper cuts down to the third man fence for four.
98-2 - More casual fielding allows Bangladesh to pick up an overthrow, sloppy stuff from Strauss' men.
95-2 - After a brief breather Wright is back again. Kayes goes for a huge swing across the line and gets nowhere near it, nevertheless there is a half-hearted appeal from those in front of the wicket. The ball is driven to mid off and despite shouts of 'hold it' Broad throws at the stumps and having found the target concedes and overthrow as the ball ricochets away from the man backing up. The ball really is following Shahzad! Jahurul mishits an attempted lofted drive over the top, the ball loops in the direction of the man at mid off who is slow getting to it and in the end doesn't even bother to put in a dive.
91-2 - Time for a bit of spin with Michael Yardy coming to the attack. Yardy will be used to bowling with a spin twin, but neither Swann nor Tredwell are in the starting XI today. The batsman exchange singles early as they take a good look at the new bowler. The Bangladeshis are running better between the wickets today, there has been a marked improvement from Trent Bridge.
88-2 - Kayes sneaks through for a single as he defends a short ball into the leg side, Trott comes rushing in to try produce a run out but fails to gather the ball. Six runs! And much needed they are. Jahurual goes on the hook; it's behind square and bisects the two men in the deep. He goes again, not as much power on it this time and the fielder cuts it off, just three.
77-2 - Jahurul goes on the pull for one that skids on he doesn't quite get hold of it, but does well enough to pick up two.
74-2 - The flow of boundaries has been halted but the Bangladeshis are picking up enough singles to keep the scorecard ticking over. They're also being helped by a few wides and now a no ball as we have our first free hit of the day. Siddique really hammers it just in front of square on the leg side, he gets a good bit of bat behind it but unfortunately it's on the one-bounce to the fielder.
67-2 - Bad news for England - Ian Bell has gone to hospital to have an x-ray on his ankle, it's surely just precautionary though.
65-2 - Broad is throwing in some quick short balls that are being defended away well enough; they're not taking the bait with two men out in the deep. Wicket! Broad picks up a wicket with an awful ball, the only thing worse than the ball was the decision! It's going down leg, Siddique looks to have a little tickle at it and Kieswetter and Broad immediately go up for the catch. Umpire Rauf wastes no time giving him out but the ball appears to have missed everything. However, there snicko seems to show there was a little noise, no maybe he did glove it after all. It's so hard to tell even with all the technology so we'll give the umpire the benefit of the doubt.
63-1 - Wright enters the attack. Sloppy stuff in the field as Kayes works the ball off his hips for a single, there is an unnecessary throw at the stumps and the ball ricochets off the wickets for another run. Lovely shot from Siddique as he caresses the through the off side for four.
55-1 - As expected Bell has left the field between overs, let's hope it's nothing serious. Ooh, Kayes looks to gently pat the down to third man and nearly gets it all wrong, with the ball dropping just short of Strauss in the slips, a full blooded cut would have been a better idea. Oh dear, another howler from Shahzad in the field; Kayes comes down the track and flashes the ball in the direction of third man, Shahzad comes rushing in off the fence and is a good 15 meters in when the ball flies over his head - if he had stayed on the fence he could have taken it!
50-1 - Siddique flicks the ball into the leg side, it's in the air but wide of Bell who makes a diving attempt, he seems to have hurt his ankle in the process but after hobbling around for a bit he seems ok but I wouldn't be surprised to see him head off the field for a bit. Super shot from Siddique as he drives powerfully wide of mid off for four. Another boundary as Siddique flicks the ball over square leg for four. Shahzad reacts by changing to over the wicket. It makes no difference though as he punches the ball past the bowler for the third four of the over.
36-1 - A change of bowling with Broad replacing the unhappy looking Anderson, the man from Lancashire just didn't seem comfortable. Siddique at last gets off the mark, working the ball down to third man for a single.
34-1 - Shahzad is struggling with his line, straying down leg on two occasions and Kieswetter does well to ensure it's just a wide and not four wides.
31-1 - A juicy half-volley from Anderson and Kayes makes no mistake smashing it through the covers for four. Not sure what's happened there, Shahzad has made a meal of a clear chance; Kayes angles the ball in the direction of gully (Shahzad) and the fielder doesn't get anywhere near it despite the ball coming right to him, really does look quite bizarre. Anderson will not be amused that the chance went a begging but even more so considering it went for four.
21-1 - Wicket! The danger man Tamim is gone! He drove at one outside off as he's done on a number of occasions thus far, and while he's missed in the past he's not so lucky this time, picking up the edge and Kieswetter takes a good diving catch. A good delivery from Shahzad, it angles back into the batsman before moving away a touch.
19-0 - Another great shot from Tamim, this time square of the wicket on the off side and there's no chance of anyone cutting that one off.
14-0 - Ooh, Tamim is beaten all ends up as he pushes away from his body, which will buoy Shahzad. Super shot from Tamias he flicks the ball behind square and looks set to find the fence but Luke Wright makes a brilliant diving stop to cut it down to two.
11-0 - Ooh, big flaying drive from Tamim but he misses it completely. He makes no mistake next up though, clipping it through midwicket for four more. Defended to square leg for a single; Tamim continues to look in pretty good touch.
6-0 - It's Shahzad to share the new ball with Anderson. He finds a good line and length first up, good for building the confidence. Kayes is off the make, turning the ball into the leg side for a single. Flicked aggressively down to third man for a single to Tamim, Bangladesh's hopes of posting a good total rest heavily on his shoulders.
4-0 - Anderson strays onto the pads and he' s punished by Tamim who flicks the ball off his hips and down to the fine leg fence for four.
The players are out in the middle and we're ready to get underway. James Anderson will get things started.
Michael Holding reports that there is a fair bit of grass left on the wicket and one or two cracks. The ball should come onto the bat well and if the batsman play their strokes we could see a high scoring game.
Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Junaid Siddique, Jahurul Islam (wk), Mohammad Ashraful, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Rubel Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam
Andrew Strauss (capt), Craig Kieswetter (wk), Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood, Eoin Morgan, Jonathan Trott, Michael Yardy, Luke Wright, Ajmal Shahzad, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.
England have made two changes with James Tredwell and Tim Bresnan falling out of the starting XI to be replaced by Jonathan Trott and Ajmal Shahzad. According to Andrew Strauss it's simply 'rotation'. Bangladesh have had to make two injury-enforced changes and have also made one tactical change - Mohammad Ashraful, Jahurul Islam and Rubel Hossain come into the team in place of Raqibul, Mushfiqur and Faisal Hossain.
News from the middle is that England have won the toss and will field first.
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the second one-dayer between England and Bangladesh in Bristol.
