Bangladesh in Australia ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Australia v Bangladesh

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 164 balls remaining)

0.1

Bracken to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, that didn't take too long! Bracken gets cracking swing straightaway, it first angles into Tamim, that draws him forward but the ball suddenly swerves the other way and a helpless Tamim forces an edge down to David Hussey at second slip who falls to his right

Tamim Iqbal c DJ Hussey b Bracken 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 0/1   Mehrab Hossain jnr 0* (0b)   NW Bracken 0.1-0-0-1

4.1

Bracken to Mehrab Hossain jnr, OUT, Bracken strikes again and this time Michael Hussey assists him, he pitches it up outside off and gets it to angle away from the left hander, Mehrab pays the price for a half-hearted prod and the ball takes the thick outside edge and runs to Hussey at third slip who dives to his left for the catch

Mehrab Hossain jnr c MEK Hussey b Bracken 1 (17m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

Bangladesh 9/2   Junaid Siddique 3* (14b)   NW Bracken 2.1-1-1-2

5.4

Clark to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Ashraful falls for the bait and an all too easy wicket for Clark, he bowls it full and wide outside off and invites the square drive, Ashraful looks to smack that but the ball clips the top of the bat and flies to White at first slip

Mohammad Ashraful c White b Clark 3 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Bangladesh 15/3   Junaid Siddique 5* (16b)   SR Clark 2.4-0-5-1

16.5

Johnson to Junaid Siddique, OUT, Junaid loses his concentration, Johnson delivers that back of a length and the ball kicks up and holds its line, he fails to withdraw his bat on time and the thick edge is taken by Haddin

Junaid Siddique c †Haddin b Johnson 21 (80m 44b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.72

Bangladesh 53/4   Shakib Al Hasan 18* (39b 3x4)   MG Johnson 3.5-0-14-1

18.2

Johnson to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, hits a good length on middle and off, the ball swings in quite sharply with the angle and Shakib tries to whip it across the line, the ball hits the back pad and umpire Oxenford thinks for a while before raising the finger. You can argue that the ball may have missed leg stump but Shakib moved across a bit too much

Shakib Al Hasan lbw b Johnson 19 (64m 43b 3x4 0x6) SR: 44.18

Bangladesh 57/5   Alok Kapali 2* (5b)   MG Johnson 4.2-0-15-2

19.5

Hopes to Alok Kapali, OUT, very very soft dismissal, Kapali decides to take the aerial route this time but fails to execute it properly as he tamely chips a full delivery down to Watson at mid-off who's standing well forward from the conventional position, Bangladesh just can't get sizable partnerships going

Alok Kapali c Watson b Hopes 2 (19m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Bangladesh 59/6   Dhiman Ghosh 2* (5b)   JR Hopes 5.5-1-16-1

26.6

White to Abdur Razzak, OUT, attempts a leg break and Razzak expects it to turn, the ball however goes through straight and Razzak can't get behind the line to defend, the outside edge lobs to Clarke at first slip

Abdur Razzak c Clarke b White 9 (33m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 34.61

Bangladesh 85/7   Dhiman Ghosh 14* (22b)   CL White 4-0-21-1

31.2

Clark to Dhiman Ghosh, OUT, he goes for broke straight down the ground but makes a mess of it, he stays rooted to the crease as he faces up a full delivery from Clark, the top edge travels to Watson at mid-off who pedals backwards to take the catch, terrible shot and Ghosh will regret it

Dhiman Ghosh c Watson b Clark 30 (63m 36b 1x4 1x6) SR: 83.33

Bangladesh 104/8   Mashrafe Mortaza 2* (12b)   SR Clark 4.2-0-6-2

32.2

White to Nazmul Hossain, OUT, all squared up by the googly, White mixes it up well, pitches outside off and cuts back in sharply, catches Nazmul on the back foot, that was fairly plumb in front

Nazmul Hossain lbw b White 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 106/9   Mashrafe Mortaza 4* (17b)   CL White 6.2-0-39-2

36.1

Johnson to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, terrific delivery from Johnson and that would have claimed even the best batsman, angles it into the right hander and lands it back of a length, the ball then moves away from Mortaza after pitching and all he can do is tamely edge it to Haddin

Mashrafe Mortaza c †Haddin b Johnson 8 (43m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 29.62

Bangladesh 117/10   Shahadat Hossain 6* (13b 1x4)   MG Johnson 6.1-0-17-3
