India tour of Bangladesh, 2nd ODI: Bangladesh v India at Dhaka, May 12, 2007
India won by 46 runs
12 May 2007 (50-over match)

Syed Rasel to Sehwag, OUT, this time he's gone! Sehwag plays the same shot three balls out of four, connecting well on the first, feebly on the second, and making a total hash of the third! Rasel sticks to the same line, pitching it full, asking him to hit it, and all Sehwag does is slog it straight up in the air for mid-off to run across and take a diving catch, tumbling over after completing the catch and getting mobbed by his team-mates

V Sehwag c Javed Omar b Syed Rasel 21 (34m 26b 1x4 1x6) SR: 80.76

India 43/1   G Gambhir 17* (22b 2x4)   Syed Rasel 3.4-0-21-1

Mohammad Rafique to Dhoni, OUT, edged and gone! Rafique fires it full and wide, Dhoni makes room and cuts, getting low as sees the ball staying down too, and the under-edge is snapped up brilliantly by Rahim! Dhoni doesnt even wait for the umpire's signal, just shuts up shop and makes for the pavilion

MS Dhoni c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mohammad Rafique 36 (73m 54b 4x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

India 130/2   G Gambhir 64* (77b 7x4)   Mohammad Rafique 2.5-0-11-1

Mohammad Rafique to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, taken! Softest of soft dismissals! Tossed up, good rotation, and what does he do? He plays out in front of his pad, closing the bat face awkwardly, and presents Rafique with the easiest of caught-and-bowled chances, and I mean easy - just popped back to his palms. Yuvraj stands there, shakes his head, and ambles off while Rafique gleefully savours the wicket

Yuvraj Singh c & b Mohammad Rafique 24 (21m 22b 2x4 2x6) SR: 109.09

India 174/3   G Gambhir 81* (93b 9x4)   Mohammad Rafique 6-0-33-2

Syed Rasel to Gambhir, OUT, bowled 'em! Fullish outside off stump, and a tired Gambhir heaves across the line only to get a bottom-edge back onto off stump, thats the shot of a weary man but a good hundred...he hobbles off the field to some decent applause from his team-mates

G Gambhir b Syed Rasel 101 (153m 113b 11x4 0x6) SR: 89.38

India 210/4   R Dravid 16* (19b)   Syed Rasel 8.3-1-36-2

Abdur Razzak to Mongia, OUT, gone! Tossed up, out dances Mongia, getting underneath it and just slogging it up in the air down towards mid-off, where a sprightly Rafique runs a long way in from the ropes, keeps his eyes on the ball, and takes a tumbling catch

D Mongia c Mohammad Rafique b Abdur Razzak 17 (21m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 106.25

India 239/5   R Dravid 28* (32b)   Abdur Razzak 7.2-0-45-1

Mohammad Rafique to Karthik, OUT, tossed up on middle and leg stump, the ball spins down as Karthik shuffles across and forward and plays with the turn, playing all over it, Rafique appeals...and thats a very surprising decision given that he was so far down the track, and that the ball bounced a bit too...ah well, thats the game of cricket for you

KD Karthik lbw b Mohammad Rafique 6 (5m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

India 251/6   R Dravid 33* (36b 1x4)   Mohammad Rafique 9.4-0-57-3

Abdur Razzak to Chawla, 1 wide, OUT, superb stumping! Chawla comes out, Razzak sees it, fires it down leg stump, he's way out of his crease as the ball spins past him, and in a flash Rahim takes it and whips off the bails

PP Chawla st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Abdur Razzak 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 258/7   R Dravid 35* (39b 1x4)   Abdur Razzak 8.3-0-53-2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Powar, OUT, gone! Powar shuffles across the stumps, then tries to cheekily work it fine, misses it and gets hit in front of the stumps, that ball was in the blockhole and the umpire's finger shot up without a second thought

RR Powar lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 5 (11m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

India 273/8   R Dravid 41* (46b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 9.1-0-46-1
