England in Bangladesh Test Series - 1st Test

Bangladesh v England

England won by 181 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

1.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, and he gets a nice sighter outside off and can leave well alone

1.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, hint of swing back into the left hander as Carberry plays slightly around his front pad and drives to mid-on

1.3

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, 2 runs, that will be a great feeling, his first Test runs, as he works the ball off his hip down to fine leg and fumble allows him back for a second.

1.4

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, full and outside off stump, quite a slingy action and not much bounce from Rubel

1.5

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, full at the stumps, that's not a bad way to attack Carberry, and it's met with a full face as it's punched into the leg side

1.6

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, a easy leave to end the over...early signs are that it's going to be hard toil for the quicks. Not sure why Shakib bowled first to be honest.

England 4/0   MA Carberry 2* (6b)

3.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, that's a cracking shot from Carberry to register the first boundary of the Test as he stands tall and drives square past point...that's a strong area for Carberry

3.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, and he follows that with a flowing cover drive as Rubel tries to compensate by pitching up...Carberry took a stride forward and drove sweetly through the line

3.3

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, fired wide of off stump and he resists having a dart at another drive

3.4

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, good reply from Rubel, banged in and it lifts past Carberry's chest as he sways out of the line...interesting stuff all of a sudden

3.5

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, fuller again this time, nicely judged and left alone

3.6

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, that's a ripper...driven dismissively through mid off with a perfect straight bat. He won that over without a doubt and it will have helped settle any early nerves

England 16/0   MA Carberry 14* (12b 3x4)

5.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, good line of middle and off, Carberry defends square on the off side

5.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, he picks up another boundary, this time off a thick outside edge as it runs between second slip and gully down to the vacant third man

5.3

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, on off stump, no width offered which is important, and it's defended down the pitch

5.4

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, 1 run, opens the face a touch and finds space on the off side...this has been a good over so far, a consistent line around off stump

England 21/0   MA Carberry 19* (16b 4x4)

6.1

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, too wide at Cook who doesn't even consider play a shot

6.2

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, nearly a breakthrough as this finds the edge of Carberry's bat as he jumps into a defensive shot, but the lack of pace in the pitch means the edge falls short of second slip

6.3

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, excellent follow-up from Shahadat, Carberry almost in two minds whether to play or leave as it shapes back a fraction with a touch of swing

6.4

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, this one dies on the surface and almost rolls through the keeper...good luck batting last on here

6.5

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, more clear effort from the bowler, complete with sound effects, and another leave from Carberry

6.6

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, on middle and off, defended with the head right over the ball and he holds his pose for a few seconds

England 25/0   MA Carberry 23* (22b 5x4)

7.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Carberry, no run, on off stump, leans forward and defends

7.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Carberry, no run, getting a good stride towards the pitch of the ball, is careful to smoother any hint of turn...and there isn't much

7.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Carberry, no run, positive footwork from Carberry, down the pitch and drives it hard back to Shakib who then threatens to hurl the ball back down the pitch but decides to hold on

7.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Carberry, no run, defended with soft hands to the leg side

7.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Carberry, no run, round the wicket, on off stump and defended to the off side this time

England 26/0   MA Carberry 23* (27b 5x4)

8.3

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, Shahadat huffs and puffs but can't blow Carberry away as this is outside off stump

8.4

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, flung well wide of off stump, nothing doing from the batsman who leaves alone

8.5

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, on leg stump, but Carberry misses out as he clips it straight to the man forward of square

8.6

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, wide outside off stump, left alone by Carberry who has dominated the scoring so far

England 27/0   MA Carberry 23* (31b 5x4)

10.1

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, 80mph, outside off stump and again the batsman doesn't have to play

10.2

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, and again, far too wide of the off stump and in the first session of a Test match this is a criminal waste of the new ball

10.3

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, FOUR, flamboyant pull from Carberry as he whips this off his hip with Caribbean flair...it wasn't that short, but he picked up the length very quickly

10.4

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, drags his line and length back to off stump, defended into the off side

10.5

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, outside off, comes in with the angle but it has started too wide and doesn't make him play

10.6

Shahadat Hossain to Carberry, no run, goes on the second bounce through to the keeper to end Shahadat's sixth over and that might be his spell done and dusted for now

England 37/0   MA Carberry 27* (37b 6x4)

12.1

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, no run, very full, very wide and Carberry chases one for the first time as he drives without conviction and plays over the top of the ball

12.2

Rubel Hossain to Carberry, 1 run, driven uppishly through the covers and there's already a sweeper out for the paceman as well

England 42/0   MA Carberry 28* (39b 6x4)

13.2

Naeem Islam to Carberry, no run, on middle and off, comes forward and defends

13.3

Naeem Islam to Carberry, 4 byes, well, well, first signs of spin today as Naeem rips this one past the outside edge and it also beats Rahim who can't get a glove on it...that was a cracking ball. Graeme Swann will be taking note

13.4

Naeem Islam to Carberry, 1 run, angling towards the pads and glanced towards short fine-leg

England 60/0   MA Carberry 29* (42b 6x4)

14.5

Mahmudullah to Carberry, 1 run, worked away for a sedate single

England 63/0   MA Carberry 30* (43b 6x4)

16.1

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run, nicely flighted, driven back firmly to the bowler

16.2

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run, good ball on a line and length, offering to turn a bit, defended calmly

16.3

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run, driven into the off side from a good length

16.4

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run, oh this turns sharply, finds a big nick from Carberry as he leans forward to defend and is dropped by Rahim, who endured a torrid time behind the stumps in the ODI series. Lucky for Carberry, but really poor from the wicketkeeper

16.5

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run

16.6

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run

England 68/0   MA Carberry 30* (49b 6x4)

18.1

Mahmudullah to Carberry, no run, big shot here as Carberry is beaten again! He looks in trouble against the offspin, pops forward and it spins past his defensive prod, thuds into the pads but probably missing off stump

18.2

Mahmudullah to Carberry, OUT, gone this time! Mahmudullah has caused all kinds of problems for Carberry. A big sweep against the spin attempted, but Carberry finds nothing but fresh air and the ball crashes into he front pad, looked out and replays show it was hitting. Vital breakthrough for Bangladesh who have looked all to flat this morning.

MA Carberry lbw b Mahmudullah 30 (75m 51b 6x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

England 72/1   MA Carberry 30 (51b 6x4)
