Take a guess who the other two are, shouldn't be hard.
I think Swann opened the bowling in a Test not long ago, not sure if he bowled the first over though.
Bangladesh would be thrilled to get any side out for under 300 and at 106-3 that was at least a possibility, but WI should go on to get a big total now and as usual it will be a question of whether the home team can avoid the follow-on.
