South Africa tour of Bangladesh, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

South Africa in Bangladesh ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Bangladesh v South Africa

South Africa won by 7 wickets (with 94 balls remaining)

9.2

JA Morkel to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Tamim's in disbelief but he has to walk... Pitches on a good length a shade outside the offstump, Tamim pokes his bat out and there's a sound before the ball reaches the keeper. De Villiers the rest appeal and umpire Nadir Shah is convinced. Replays show the ball clipping the pad on the way through.

Tamim Iqbal c †de Villiers b JA Morkel 8 (39m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.80

Bangladesh 34/1   Shahriar Nafees 23* (26b 3x4)   JA Morkel 0.2-0-0-1

12.2

M Morkel to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, Nafees is gone too. This one too came in from round the wicket and again Nafees was cramped up and tried to play it quite similarly to the previous delivery : opening the bat face and trying to steer but this one bounced more and took the edge

Shahriar Nafees c †de Villiers b M Morkel 25 (53m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 75.75

Bangladesh 41/2   Nazimuddin 4* (11b)   M Morkel 4.2-1-15-1

15.1

JA Morkel to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, Dust to Ash es . Death by aggression. Full in length, on the middle stump and he goes for a ugly heave and can only manage to send it to mid-on. Ashraful is livid with himself. But the deed has been done. Just 17 runs in this series. What a waste of a talent.

Mohammad Ashraful c Amla b JA Morkel 9 (14m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Bangladesh 61/3   Nazimuddin 13* (18b 2x4)   JA Morkel 3.1-0-17-2

17.6

JA Morkel to Nazimuddin, OUT, OMG! What happened there? They are in a suicide mode here. He walked right across the stumps and tried to slog a length delivery across the line but only skied it for Smith to get under it at midwicket. Horrible shot. What was he thinking? Was he thinking?

Nazimuddin c Smith b JA Morkel 20 (43m 30b 3x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Bangladesh 72/4   Shakib Al Hasan 3* (5b)   JA Morkel 5-1-23-3

22.6

Botha to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, One more down. Shakib is cleaned up. Flighted from round the stumps, full, he tried to whip it to midwicket, missed and the ball bounded off the pad and on to the stumps.

Shakib Al Hasan b Botha 12 (39m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Bangladesh 97/5   Raqibul Hasan 11* (21b 1x4)   J Botha 3-0-14-1

26.1

Botha to Dhiman Ghosh, OUT, The third umpire has given Raqibul run out. Dhiman went back and pushed towards covers, Duminy swooped in and fired in a throw to the 'keeper who took the bails off. There was a doubt whether the bails had come off before the batsman had dragged the bat inside the crease but on careful and repeated viewing, the umpire presses the red button.

Raqibul Hasan run out 12 (36m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Bangladesh 101/6   Dhiman Ghosh 3* (10b)   J Botha 4.1-0-17-1

27.4

Harris to Dhiman Ghosh, OUT, bowled him! Harris slips in the arm ball on middle and off, Ghosh moves back and tries to cut, he gets beaten for pace and misses, Bangladesh are seven down, an abject performance so far

Dhiman Ghosh b Harris 3 (18m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Bangladesh 106/7   Farhad Reza 4* (5b 1x4)   PL Harris 3.4-1-7-1

30.6

Botha to Abdur Razzak, OUT, Another swipe across the line and de Villiers takes a very sharp catch. Razzak top-edged a intended slog and de Villiers managed to hold on to a tough chance.

Abdur Razzak c †de Villiers b Botha 9 (15m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Bangladesh 118/8   Farhad Reza 6* (14b 1x4)   J Botha 7-0-30-2

38.6

JA Morkel to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, The ninth wicket is down. It was pretty short in length, outside the off stump and he top-edged a cut to the 'keeper

Mashrafe Mortaza c †de Villiers b JA Morkel 5 (30m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Bangladesh 135/9   Farhad Reza 15* (37b 2x4)   JA Morkel 7-1-29-4

42.5

Botha to Mosharraf Hossain, OUT, Bangladesh innings has been terminated. This time the batsman walks after nicking to de Villiers. Flighted around the off stump and edged behind

Mosharraf Hossain c †de Villiers b Botha 3 (14m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

Bangladesh 143/10   Farhad Reza 20* (47b 2x4)   J Botha 8.5-0-34-3
