India tour of Bangladesh, 2007 / Wicket commentary

India in Bangladesh Test Series - 2nd Test

Bangladesh v India

India won by an innings and 239 runs

Overs 0-50

0.1

Khan to Javed Omar, OUT, Gone! First ball duck for Omar, good length ball outside off, probing line straight away and Omar pokes tentatively, edge flies towards third slip and Karthik takes a simple knee-high catch. Super start for India.

Javed Omar c Karthik b Khan 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 0/1   Shahriar Nafees 0* (0b)   Z Khan 0.1-0-0-1

1.4

Singh to Habibul Bashar, OUT, Cracker of a delivery that produces another wicket. Short of a length on off and holding its line, bit of extra bounce as well and Bashar holds his back limply, beaten comprehensively and the ball takes a thin snick on it's way to Dhoni behind the stumps

Habibul Bashar c †Dhoni b Singh 4 (6m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Bangladesh 5/2   Shahriar Nafees 0* (3b)   RP Singh 0.4-0-4-1

2.2

Khan to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, And another! It's just the third over and already Bangladesh are three down. This was a sensational ball, almost unplayable for Nafees. Full and on middle, swinging in a shade and holding its line after pitching, Nafees tries to play the forward defensive but is beaten all ends up. The ball finds a way through the bat and pad and crashes into the stumps

Shahriar Nafees b Khan 2 (13m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Bangladesh 7/3   Rajin Saleh 0* (2b)   Z Khan 1.2-1-2-2

2.3

Khan to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Sensational! Ashraful goes for a first ball duck. Full on off and jagging back in, Ashraful can't read that and he's struck flush on the pads. Huge appeal and that's plumb in front. Umpire Doctrove has no hesitation in giving that out

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Khan 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 7/4   Rajin Saleh 0* (2b)   Z Khan 1.3-1-2-3

10.4

Kumble to Rajin Saleh, OUT, That's it, Kumble strikes in his very first over. Topspinner this time and it hurries on after pitching, he moves forward and lunges but the ball deflects off the bat and pad to pop up to Jaffer at short leg

Rajin Saleh c Jaffer b Kumble 20 (48m 29b 4x4 0x6) SR: 68.96

Bangladesh 40/5   Shakib Al Hasan 13* (22b 2x4)   A Kumble 0.4-0-0-1

16.2

Khan to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, gone! Zaheer starts off from where he left! good length delivery, pitched outside the off stump and coming in with the angle. Hasan thrusts forward to defend and the ball thuds into the pad - looked like he was hit touch outside the line of the off stump but it was a confident appeal and umpire Doctrove had no hesitation in raising his finger

Shakib Al Hasan lbw b Khan 30 (70m 47b 4x4 0x6) SR: 63.82

Bangladesh 58/6   Mohammad Sharif 0* (10b)   Z Khan 5.2-1-20-4

25.5

Kumble to Mohammad Sharif, OUT, that's the end of that! flipper does the trick - Sharif shapes forward to defend, thinking that it was the leg break and is done in for pace, the ball angles in and thuds into the pad. Umpire Harper took his time but in the end the decision was in favour of the bowler and rightly so

Mohammad Sharif lbw b Kumble 13 (78m 38b 1x4 0x6) SR: 34.21

Bangladesh 85/7   Khaled Mashud 11* (32b 1x4)   A Kumble 3.5-1-19-2

28.2

Sharma to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, Sharma strikes and that's his first Test wicket! off-cutter - pitched wide outside the off stump and cutting in with the angle, Mortaza stays back and drives it straight to Kumble at gully. As easy as it gets

Mashrafe Mortaza c Kumble b Sharma 2 (11m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 93/8   Khaled Mashud 15* (44b 2x4)   I Sharma 5.2-1-13-1

32.5

Khan to Mohammad Rafique, OUT, got'm! full and on the stumps, Rafique plays all over it - beaten by the extra pace and late swing there and the ball crashes into the middle stump. Nine down - just one more to go

Mohammad Rafique b Khan 12 (21m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.17

Bangladesh 110/9   Khaled Mashud 19* (49b 2x4)   Z Khan 9.5-1-34-5

37.2

Kumble to Khaled Mashud, OUT, all over! genuine leg-break, pitched in the channel outside the off stump and drifting away from the right-hander. Mashud goes back and across and drives hard, a faint edge is the by-product and Dhoni holds on well to difficult chance.

Khaled Mashud c †Dhoni b Kumble 25 (100m 64b 2x4 0x6) SR: 39.06

Bangladesh 118/10   Syed Rasel 2* (12b)   A Kumble 9.2-3-32-3
