England tour of Bangladesh, 1st Test: Bangladesh v England at Chittagong, Mar 12-16, 2010
England won by 181 runs
12,13,14,15,16 March 2010 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
50.1

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, 2 runs, backs away to leg and launches this high over the covers...Carberry chases it down near the boundary

50.2

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, no run, pitched up outside off, playing well away from his body, exposing all three stumps, and doesn't get close to making contact

50.3

Finn to Shahadat Hossain, OUT, gone! Finn gets his first Test wicket as Shahadat prods outside off stump once again and this time gets a thick edge straight to second slip and it's a simple catch for Paul Collingwood. That will be a proud moment for Finn and will settle any lingering nerves.

Shahadat Hossain c Collingwood b Finn 14 (60m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

It was also the first conventional slip catch of the Test...Collingwood took one yesterday, but it looped off a sweep by Mahmudullah.

76.1

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, not getting too far forward, but easily defended into the covers

76.2

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, takes his eyes off a bouncer that doesn't rise and is very close to getting a bang on the helmet

76.3

Finn to Naeem Islam, no run, good length outside off, Naeem judges it well and leaves alone

76.4

The bright red new ball has been brought out and is given straight away to Stuart Broad. The last 20 overs have been hard work for England so they'll hope for a bit of life

80.1

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, immediately there's some carry outside off as this is left alone

80.2

Broad to Naeem Islam, 1 leg bye, on leg stump, worked away backward of square on the leg side and it has come off the pad

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, dropped another one goes down, and it's Collingwood of all people who puts down a regulation edge at second slip as Rahim drives hard...bad miss for England

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short ball, Rahim plays it well by dropping his hands and swaying backwards

    • Naeem Islam 28 (90b 4x4)

End of over 83 (1 run, maiden) Bangladesh 271/7

    • Naeem Islam 28 (99b 4x4)

84.3

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, another short ball and Naeem goes underneath again

Broad to Naeem Islam, no run, good leave, was close to off stump but Naeem is seeing it well

84.6

Broad to Naeem Islam, FOUR, another lovely shot, whipped past mid on who doesn't time his drive properly and this is a superb effort from eighth-wicket pair

85.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, picks out square leg

85.3

    • Naeem Islam 38 (110b 6x4)
    • Mushfiqur Rahim 66 (133b 12x4)
    • TT Bresnan 23-9-63-1
    • SCJ Broad 20-4-66-2

Thanks very much Gnasher. Well, the sun, or at least the grey, is pouring in announcing morning here in the Cricinfo towers. My head is finally clearing of sleep and Bangladesh are playing actual Test cricket. Fantastic stuff. The new ball hasn't brought the instant magic is was supposed to for England (largely thanks to a rare Collingwood drop) and with the heat and humidity, Bangladesh have given themselves a chance of avoiding the follow on.

86.1

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Broad continues to find decent pace and carry, but this starts outside off and climbs through to Prior, not interesting Mushfiqur

86.2

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, another shortish ball, again starting a little wide of off and Mushfiqur makes a cursory sway inside the line

86.3

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this is a good ball, full and attacking the stumps, Mushfiqur is up to the task, which summarises his whole innings really, and defends well

86.4

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, sharp short ball and Mushfiqur played this really well, keeping his eye on it until the last moment where he tucks his tiny tiny frame underneath it

86.5

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, pitched up, swinging in late and a massive appeal from England. Runs given so the umpire must have though Mushfiqur got a nick on it, and yes, replays show he's absolutely right. An attempted leg-side flick came off the outside edge and went for four

86.6

Broad to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, more secure here for Mushfiqur, rocking forward and defending solidly

End of over 87 (4 runs) Bangladesh 286/7

    • Mushfiqur Rahim 70 (139b 13x4)
    • Naeem Islam 38 (110b 6x4)
    • SCJ Broad 21-4-70-2
    • TT Bresnan 23-9-63-1
87.1

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, Bresnan continues to probe around the off-stump channel, Naeem continues to judge the lines well and leaves this all alone

87.2

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, zippy short ball from Bresnan, who has looked much sharper than normal this game, Naeem ducks underneath it

87.3

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, oh dear, this is very short, Naeem could have jumped and it would pass over him, as it was he ducked

87.4

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, the merits of a slightly fuller length, finds some away movement off the seam, attracts a bat-hanging defensive prod from Naeem and it skirts past the edge

87.5

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, where did that come from? An ugly swipe outside off stump and the ball whizzes past the edge, a rare loss of concentration from Naeem

87.6

Bresnan to Naeem Islam, no run, back on it here, with a solid defensive shot to finish the over

End of over 88 (maiden) Bangladesh 286/7

    • Naeem Islam 38 (116b 6x4)
    • Mushfiqur Rahim 70 (139b 13x4)
    • TT Bresnan 24-10-63-1
    • SCJ Broad 21-4-70-2

Graeme Swann returns to the attack, long on and deep midwicket in place.

88.1

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this one skids through a tad, Mushfiqur plays back and defends

88.2

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, this time there's a touch more flight, Mushfiqur comes forward and nudges it back down the wicket

88.3

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, Mushfiqur attempting to cut gets really cramped for room as the ball spins back at him, timed it well in the end but risky shot

88.4

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, tighter here, eyes over the ball and defending

88.5

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, hint of new-ball bounce, but well negotiated by Mushfiqur playing back and defending

88.6

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 leg bye, Mushfiqur keeps the strike thanks to a leg bye, as the ball spun into his pads and ran away behind square on the leg side

End of over 89 (1 run, maiden) Bangladesh 287/7

    • Mushfiqur Rahim 70 (145b 13x4)
    • Naeem Islam 38 (116b 6x4)
    • GP Swann 29-8-90-3
    • TT Bresnan 24-10-63-1
89.1

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, a bit too much width and too short from Bresnan, Mushfiqur obliges cutting airily through point for four

89.2

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, fuller and better ball, swinging away but from a line wide enough to draw nothing but a leave from Mushfiqur

89.3

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, well played, compact defensive block from Mushfiqur, he can play back to almost everything, such a small fellow

89.4

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, unlucky for Bresnan, finds the outside edge, but Mushfiqur played it with soft hands and the ball ran away past second slip for another boundary

89.5

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, probing stuff from Bresnan here, honing in on off stump, Mushfiqur is back and defending resolutely

89.6

Bresnan to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, OUT, brilliant fielding from Carberry! Huge breakthrough and just what England needed. It was guided wide of point where Carberry ran and chased the ball in a flash, the throw was back and Naeem had turned blind, he was left stranded looking for a second run which could have been there if it weren't for Carberry's excellent work

Naeem Islam run out 38 (153m 116b 6x4 0x6) SR: 32.75

End of over 90 (9 runs) Bangladesh 296/8

    • Mushfiqur Rahim 79 (151b 15x4)
    • TT Bresnan 25-10-72-1
    • GP Swann 29-8-90-3
90.1

Swann to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Two in two and that is a sensational catch! Absolute blinder from Tredwell at short midwicket, diving one-handed to his right to pluck Mushfiqur's firmly-struck slog-sweep shot out of the air. Two bits of brilliant fielding have completely transformed England's mood

Mushfiqur Rahim c sub (JC Tredwell) b Swann 79 (196m 152b 15x4 0x6) SR: 51.97

90.2

Swann to Rubel Hossain, no run, order restored for a moment, this is defended into to the leg side

90.3

Swann to Rubel Hossain, OUT, gone again and Swann has five! Well Bangladesh have folded in an instant. Swann's slider and Rubel played down the wrong line. Lead of 303.

Rubel Hossain b Swann 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

That is that. All the hard work Mushfiqur and Naeem put in was undone in two balls, and by the looks of things, England will not enforce the follow on so will bat again. Possibly the lack of a fifth bowler - a second spinner in particularly - has prompted Alastair Cook to bat again. He also probably fancies some cheap runs as well.
