ICC World Cup, 1999 / Commentary

ICC World Cup - 6th match, Group B

Bangladesh v New Zealand

New Zealand won by 6 wickets (with 102 balls remaining)


Allott to Shahriar Hossain, OUT, Bangladesh off to a scintillating start, left arm Allott over the wicket, pitching on middle, straightens down the line, appeal, Robinson takes a long while to give a pretty plumb lbw

Shahriar Hossain lbw b Allott 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 0/1   * (b)   GI Allott 0.3-0-0-1


Allott to Mehrab Hossain, OUT, quick ball, or did the batsman just fall asleep, trying a very late cut, ball hits the pad, aimed at the off stump, the umpire was quick with the finger trigger, possibly before Mehrab even started his shot

Mehrab Hossain lbw b Allott 2 (10m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 7/2   Akram Khan 5* (8b 1x4)   GI Allott 1.3-0-3-2


Cairns to Aminul Islam, OUT, lovely ball, hopeless shot, seaming from outside the off stump, Aminul going for an *inappropriate* hoik over the mid wicket, plays outside the line, bang goes the middle stump out of the ground

Aminul Islam b Cairns 15 (43m 41b 2x4 0x6) SR: 36.58

Bangladesh 38/3   Akram Khan 16* (30b 2x4)   CL Cairns 1.4-0-1-1


Larsen to Akram Khan, OUT, but it's Akram Khan who should be impeached, slogging a straight drive down the ground, well, that was the intention anyway, instead it goes straight into the hands of the bowler

Akram Khan c & b Larsen 16 (56m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.48

Bangladesh 38/4   Khaled Mashud 0* (2b)   GR Larsen 0.3-0-0-1


Larsen to Khaled Mashud, OUT, short of a length, outside the off stump, seams in, Mashud without a clue, into the leg stump, Larsen shows a little too much enjoyment over that wicket

Khaled Mashud b Larsen 4 (22m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

Bangladesh 46/5   Naimur Rahman 2* (10b)   GR Larsen 2.2-0-5-2


Cairns to Khaled Mahmud, OUT, slow ball out of the back of the hand, full toss, misjudges it and drives in the air, easy catch for the mid off, disgusting batting

Khaled Mahmud c Twose b Cairns 3 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Bangladesh 49/6   Naimur Rahman 2* (13b)   CL Cairns 5-1-5-2


Cairns to Mohammad Rafique, OUT, first ball and gone, huge appeal from Cairns, just trying to defend, strikes in line with the left hander's leg stump

Mohammad Rafique lbw b Cairns 0 (5m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 51/7   Naimur Rahman 4* (19b)   CL Cairns 5.1-1-5-3


Larsen to Naimur Rahman, OUT, 4th lbw of the day, Naimur playing down the outside of it, pitching on off, struck in line with middle, may have missed the leg stump, venkat doesn't care, he wants to watch the afternoon soaps

Naimur Rahman lbw b Larsen 18 (72m 51b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

Bangladesh 85/8   Enamul Haque 13* (28b 2x4)   GR Larsen 8.5-0-18-3


Harris to Enamul Haque, OUT, around teh wicket to the left hander, bingo! the enamled one plays over it trying the cover drive, ball spins into the off stump

Enamul Haque b Harris 19 (60m 41b 3x4 0x6) SR: 46.34

Bangladesh 96/9   Hasibul Hossain 4* (11b)   CZ Harris 0.5-0-3-1


Allott to Hasibul Hossain, OUT, waist high full toss, pulled direct to the mid wicket, batsmen think it should be a no ball, but the replay shows it was called correctly, he hit it a long way in front of himself

Hasibul Hossain c Horne b Allott 16 (34m 28b 1x4 1x6) SR: 57.14

Bangladesh 116/10   Manjural Islam 6* (6b)   GI Allott 8.4-0-30-3
