South Africa tour of Bangladesh, 1st ODI: Bangladesh v South Africa at Chittagong, Mar 9, 2008
South Africa won by 9 wickets (with 79 balls remaining)
9 March 2008 (50-over match)

Langeveldt to Junaid Siddique, OUT, First wicket is down. Siddique is back in the hut. Banged in short and he top-edged a pull to Harris, who ran forward from mid-on to take a comfortable catch.

Junaid Siddique c Harris b Langeveldt 6 (29m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Bangladesh 30/1   Tamim Iqbal 23* (22b 3x4)   CK Langeveldt 3.4-0-16-1

Nel to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, 100th ODI wicket for Nel. Fullish, outside off stump, moving away and Nafees goes back and across and tries to cut - not the length for it - and edges it behind. Nel is ecstatic and his team-mates rush to congratulate him.

Shahriar Nafees c †de Villiers b Nel 12 (27m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 63.15

Bangladesh 53/2   Tamim Iqbal 33* (40b 4x4)   A Nel 5.4-1-14-1

Morkel to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, trapped by a yorker. Full and on the middle and leg stump line, swung in late to evade the drive. Ash reckons it would have missed the leg stump but Umpire Enamul believes it would have crashed into the leg stump as the batsman had not taken a great forward stride.

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Morkel 8 (32m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 79/3   Tamim Iqbal 49* (60b 7x4)   JA Morkel 5.5-1-22-1

Harris to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, caught at midwicket. The pitch is getting increasingly slower and stroke play is getting difficult. He came down the track, trying to drive to long-on but couldn't reach the pitch of the delivery that stopped on him a touch and sent it straight to the fielder.

Shakib Al Hasan c Gibbs b Harris 6 (19m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Bangladesh 89/4   Tamim Iqbal 52* (69b 7x4)   PL Harris 1.1-0-1-1

Harris to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Tamim holes out to long-on. Valiant knock comes to an end. He charged out to Harris and heaved straight to the fielder. Out for 82. Well played but perhaps, he could have carried on. Wrong time to get out.

Tamim Iqbal c Morkel b Harris 82 (126m 98b 9x4 1x6) SR: 83.67

Bangladesh 131/5   Raqibul Hasan 11* (35b)   PL Harris 6.4-1-18-2

Langeveldt to Raqibul Hasan, OUT, what a soft dismissal. Driven straight to mid-off. Full in length, outside off stump, he stretched forward and drove straight to the fielder.

Raqibul Hasan c Botha b Langeveldt 15 (53m 42b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.71

Bangladesh 138/6   Dhiman Ghosh 2* (11b)   CK Langeveldt 7.4-1-30-2

Botha to Mosharraf Hossain, OUT, trapped in front. Quicker one from round the stumps and he was caught dead plumb in front. The bat was held behind the pad and Hossain's misery ends.

Mosharraf Hossain lbw b Botha 8 (24m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 154/7   Dhiman Ghosh 8* (23b)   J Botha 8.4-0-31-1

Nel to Abdur Razzak, OUT, low full toss, swiped low to covers where Smith takes it. The batsman thinks it might have bounced, the two umpires confer and he is given out. They don't refer it to third umpire. Smith claimed the catch. Replays don't confirm or deny it. Akhtar Ali Khan, on air, believes it bounced. I will wait for another replay to confirm his doubt.

Abdur Razzak c Smith b Nel 15 (12m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 125.00

Bangladesh 175/8   Dhiman Ghosh 13* (30b)   A Nel 9.5-2-23-2

Nel to Shahadat Hossain, OUT, yorker fetches him another wicket. It crashed into the front boot in front of leg and middle. The umpire Enamul reckons it would have clipped the leg. Hmm..

Shahadat Hossain lbw b Nel 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 176/9   Dhiman Ghosh 13* (30b)   A Nel 10-2-24-3

Morkel to Syed Rasel, OUT, the outside edge is taken and Bangladesh restricted for 178. Full in length, angling away and he tried to drive on the up and is gone.

Syed Rasel c †de Villiers b Morkel 0 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 178/10   Dhiman Ghosh 15* (32b)   JA Morkel 8.2-1-30-2
