England in Bangladesh Test Series - 2nd Test

Bangladesh v England

England won by 9 wickets

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

0.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, pitched up and Kayes gets forward to defend. The pitch looks hard, dry and grassless - plenty of cracks on it, but they're all very fine

0.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, on a length, and Kayes moves across and onto the back foot to defend the ball back down the wicket

Bangladesh 7/0   Imrul Kayes 0* (2b)

2.1

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, good, tight stuff from Broad so far - he's found just the right length again and Kayes defends off the back foot with a straight bat

2.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, pulled down slightly shorter, but Kayes gets across right behind the line of the ball and rides the bounce to defend onto the leg side

2.3

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, a touch of width given this time, and Kayes pushes the ball firmly to point off the back foot

2.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, great ball, in the channel outside off and seaming away from the left hander, Kayes plays the line and is beaten as the ball moves away - he played inside it

2.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, defended back down the pitch

2.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, shorter this time, but it's wide of off and left alone

Bangladesh 17/0   Imrul Kayes 0* (8b)

4.1

Broad to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, Imrul on his way now, juicy half-volley on leg stump, Imrul obliges by clipping firmly to the midwicket boundary

4.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, full once more, a touch straighter, Imrul works it away without timing it perfectly, towards the midwicket region

4.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 2 runs, dug in a fraction against Imrul, he hasn't really been tested yet with bouncers, Imrul plays it well here, up on his toes and working it down to fine leg

4.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, there is the first real bouncer, short and sharp but flying down the leg side and it's easy for Imrul to get outside the line

Bangladesh 33/0   Imrul Kayes 7* (12b 1x4)

5.2

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, Bresnan over the wicket, angling it across Imrul, who has no interest in playing this outside off stump

5.3

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, better line this time, but there is nothing at all in the pitch and Imrul gets behind it comfortably

5.4

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, this time it's far enough outside off to allow an easy leave

5.5

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, no run, pitched up a fraction more and slightly misdirected, Imrul will feel like he's missed out after this rapped him on the thigh pad

5.6

Bresnan to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, well Imrul must have been watching Matt Hayden in the IPL, he's planted his foot forward, swished through the line and plonked the ball over mid off for four. Startling stuff

Bangladesh 38/0   Imrul Kayes 11* (17b 2x4)

6.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, this time it's patted away into the off side

6.3

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, oops, a horrid delivery from Broad, speared miles down the leg side where a diving Matt Prior sticks out a glove and takes an excellent tumbling stop

6.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, much fuller and driven firmly back at Broad who fields in his follow through

6.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 4 leg byes, Broad getting his lines slightly wrong here, this is arrowed down leg, clips the pad and runs away to the fine leg boundary where a sprawling Tim Bresnan loses his trousers in his dive, but still can't stop the ball

6.6

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, this time it's directed better and driven back to Broad

Bangladesh 43/0   Imrul Kayes 11* (22b 2x4)

8.1

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, Broad goes full, Imrul is calm and defending

8.2

Broad to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, a touch too far down leg side, Broad has not been at his best with the new ball today, this is easily worked round the corner for a single

8.4

Broad to Imrul Kayes, no run, carefully blocked into the off side

8.5

Broad to Imrul Kayes, OUT, excellent catch this time! Imrul this time drove loosely and the ball ballooned towards the right of Finn at mid off. With the ball dying on him, he ran in and dived and held on to a fine catch. Poor shot to get out to

Imrul Kayes c Finn b Broad 12 (37m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Bangladesh 53/1   Imrul Kayes 12 (26b 2x4)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
