Bangladesh tour of Australia, 2008 / Wicket commentary

Bangladesh in Australia ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Australia v Bangladesh

Australia won by 73 runs

8.1

Farhad Reza to Marsh, OUT, he's bowled him! Reza strikes with his first ball of the series, what a start! Reza pitches the ball on a good length just around off stump and nips it a fraction back into the left-hander, Marsh pushes forward in defence with a large gap between bat and pad, Reza finds it and the ball hits off stump, Marsh has monopolised the strike and ridden his luck so far but it's run out now

SE Marsh b Farhad Reza 30 (45m 36b 4x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Australia 41/1   SR Watson 9* (13b 1x4)   Farhad Reza 0.1-0-0-1

23.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Clarke, OUT, Watson's gone now! Clarke pushed the ball slowly off the front foot towards mid-on and called for the single, Watson was hesitant, Clarke powered through for the run but Watson's response was late, Mortaza picked up and threw towards the batsman's end where Dhiman Ghosh broke the stumps with Watson miles short

SR Watson run out 27 (113m 44b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.36

Australia 84/2   MJ Clarke 23* (63b)   Shakib Al Hasan 4.5-0-12-0

25.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Clarke, OUT, another mix-up and another run-out! Clarke pushes the ball off the front foot towards cover point, he begins to go for the single but hesitates, he sees Hussey coming and continues to run, Kapali runs in from point, picks the ball up cleanly and scores a direct hit at the bowler's end, no need for the third umpire, Clarke's struggle is over

MJ Clarke run out 25 (75m 66b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.87

Australia 87/3   MEK Hussey 1* (7b)   Shakib Al Hasan 5.3-0-15-0

34.4

Farhad Reza to DJ Hussey, OUT, that's the third run out! Fantastic fielding! David charges down the track and hits the short of a length ball hard towards mid-off with a flat bat, he sets off for the single immediately but the ball was travelling towards mid-off quickly, Ashraful sprints towards it, picks up, and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, umpire Saheba calls for the third umpire but David isn't waiting, he's walking off

DJ Hussey run out 11 (35m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.74

Australia 111/4   MEK Hussey 14* (35b)   Farhad Reza 6.4-0-22-1

43.1

Abdur Razzak to Haddin, OUT, caught! Haddin's hit it straight to cover! He backs away to make room to hit over the off side, the flighted delivery dips and turns away from the right-hander, Haddin ends up driving away from his body and chips an easy catch to Kapali

BJ Haddin c Alok Kapali b Abdur Razzak 16 (45m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 51.61

Australia 150/5   MEK Hussey 32* (55b 1x4)   Abdur Razzak 8.1-1-18-1
