  • Overs 1-50

1.1

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, short of a length and angled across, wide enough for Kayes to shoulder arms.

1.2

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, poor shot, Kayes tries to drive on the up and the length ball holds its line to beat the outside edge. Not the shot you play in the second over of a Test match.

1.3

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, better from Kayes, restrains himself from playing a shot outside off.

1.4

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, short of a length and angling across at reasonable pace, he lets it go to the keeper.

1.5

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, another leave from Kayes, Rampaul's not getting the ball to move off the seam so far.

1.6

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, and again, Kayes shoulders arms to a back of a length ball that wafted through outside off. Decent carry for Rampaul there, I wonder how long that will last.

Bangladesh 4/0   R Rampaul 1-1-0-0
3.1

Rampaul to Tamim Iqbal, no run, short ball carries nicely past Tamim's leave outside off.

3.2

Rampaul to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, short ball on the middle and leg line, nudged to the leg side for one. Signs already of a benign pitch where the bowlers will have to put in a lot of effort to make something happen.

3.3

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, fuller and wider of off stump, Kayes doesn't fiddle with it. He's been very sedate after that indiscreet on-the-up play and a miss.

3.5

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, goes fuller this time, Kayes gets forward and defends towards cover point.

5.1

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, Rampaul plugs away short of a length outside off stump, and Kayes lets it go. Fidel's moved a couple off the seam, Rampaul's sending them down dead straight.

5.2

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, fuller and closer to the off stump, but not close enough to make Kayes play.

5.3

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, on a length again, Kayes defends into the off side with an opened face.

5.4

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, Kayes plans the front foot across and drives, but the ball is not full enough to confirm timing. It dribbles away into the covers for a single.

5.5

Rampaul to Tamim Iqbal, no run, hustles Tamim with a good bouncer now, but there is not short leg in place any more. Not that Tamim was in much trouble, he kept it down well.

5.6

Rampaul to Tamim Iqbal, no run, and this one angles across with nice carry, Tamim shoulders arms from the crease.

Bangladesh 13/0   R Rampaul 3-1-2-0

Rampaul to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Rampauls increases the pace and decreases the length, Tamim shoulders arms outside off.

7.5

9.1

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, he's been short all day, and again lands it on a length that won't elicit the drive. Defended off the back foot.

11.1

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, on a length around middle and off, easily defended to the leg side.

11.4

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, Kayes drives on the up, he is a little late on the shot thanks to Rampaul's pace and ends up forcing it off the outside half behind gully. The bowler won't mind that stroke.

11.5

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, no run, that's very poor from Kayes. Goes for a madcap lash away from the body as Rampaul takes it a further yard away outside off. Not too far from the edge.

11.6

Rampaul to Imrul Kayes, OUT, well bowled Rampaul, he's made things happen in this over by changing the angle and using the seam. He shapes this in at Kayes from a touch wide of the crease and gets it to straighten down the line outside off. Kayes is not the most patient batsman doing the rounds, he pokes at it without conviction and the edge lands in Baugh's gloves.

Imrul Kayes c †Baugh b Rampaul 10 (52m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 27.77

15.3

Rampaul to Tamim Iqbal, no run, aha, play and a miss. Rampaul does it once again, with a nagging angle and an uncanny straightening outside off. Tamim's footwork wasn't decisive, he seemed to be gauging the length even as he chose to play at it, inside the line as it transpired.
