England v Bangladesh, 2nd ODI, Bristol July 10, 2010

Bangladesh seal historic victory

251

Bangladesh 236 for 7 (Kayes 76, Shahzad 3-41) beat England 231 (Trott 94, Shafiul 2-38) by five runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Bangladesh produced a performance of immense spirit and character as they secured their first victory over England in any format with a famous five-run win at Bristol. In an extraordinary finale, Ian Bell limped out at No. 11 with a broken foot to accompany Jonathan Trott, but Trott edged a cut off the third ball of the final over bowled by Shafiul Islam after making 94 to send Bangladesh into scenes of wild celebration.

Trott had taken 13 off the five balls in the penultimate over from Mashrafe Mortaza, but James Anderson could only pop the final delivery back to the bowler. Bangladesh thought that was the victory and began ripping up the stumps in celebration, but Bell hobbled down the steps with Morgan as his runner and hoped that Trott could get the 10 needed from final over. He managed consecutive twos, but then tried to go through the off side and edged to the wicketkeeper to leave him disconsolate at the crease. He didn't even remark his guard.

What makes Bangladesh's success even more remarkable is the state in which they entered this game. Two leading players, Raqibul Hasan who top-scored at Trent Bridge and wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim, had been ruled out of the series and one of their replacements, Mohammad Ashraful only arrived in the country 14 hours before the toss. Add to that Bangladesh's 24-match losing run and the previous inability of their attack to assert any pressure and this has to go down as one of the more remarkable reversals.

After the batsmen had again stuttered the bowlers lifted themselves, led by the efforts of Rubel Hossain and Abdur Razzak who shared four crucial top-order wickets as the hosts' batting suffered a collective malfunction. Trott kept England in with a chance as he added 43 with Stuart Broad, but when Broad drove to point and Mortaza only conceded three from the 48th over the balance of the game tilted towards Bangladesh.

When Imrul Kayes had laboured to a worthy, but uninspired, 76 in Bangladesh's total of 236 for 7 - during which they scored just 87 in the last 20 overs - it appeared all they had done was keep their head above water and avoid humilation. As Andrew Strauss and Craig Kieswetter added 49 in 7.5 overs it was a question of how many overs England would have to spare at the end.

Maybe England were even starting to think that way, having played Bangladesh on eight previous occasions this year and witnessed they inability to maintain pressure. Michael Yardy, Luke Wright and Ajmal Shahzad played horrid shots when they had a chance to prove their bottle for a tense run chase. England have occasionally taken their eye off the ball before in both Tests and ODIs, but have had the experience and class to pull the situation. Not this time, and the problems started when the openers gave their wickets away in quick succession as happened at Trent Bridge.

Rubel, whose recall suddenly looked inspired, sparked the team into life with a bustling display. In his first over Strauss tried to guide the ball over the slips and feathered a catch to the stand-in keeper Jahurul Islam, who looked more than competent as Musfiqur's replacement. Rubel struck again in his next over as Kieswetter played a flat-footed drive to give the keeper his second chance and Bangladesh were unlucky not to make it two wickets in two balls. Collingwood flashed hard at his first delivery and the fielding side were convinced of the edge, so much so that Rubel and Jahurul were well into their celebrations when umpire Richard Illingworth turned them down.

Subsequent replays confirmed a healthy edge but to Bangladesh's credit they continued to maintain their discipline and keep the run-rate down. Collingwood broke the shackles when he pulled Rubel for six before the scales evened themselves as Collingwood was given lbw to Razzak despite a big inside edge onto his pad. Even the batsman had a rueful smile as he made his way off.

Morgan, who was England's saviour when they came close to defeat in Dhaka earlier this year, began with an edge through the vacant slip cordon but collected his first failure of the ODI season when he tried to turn Razzak into the leg side. Still, if England want to become the best one-day team in the world they can't rely on Morgan's freakish skills.

Trott's style couldn't be more mundane in comparison to Morgan, but he now became vital for England's chase. He kept losing partners as Yardy had a horrid swipe across the line, a shot replicated by Shahzad as the asking rate grew, while Wright's regression after a promising start against Australia continued when he edged a wild drive to slip where Junaid Siddique held on at the second attempt.

At times Trott still seemed in his own little world as he pushed singles with the required rate climbing past seven an over, but in the penultimate over he sparked into life and for a few moments it appeared Bangladesh would bottle their chance again. Shafiul, whose first over had cost 12, held his nerve and England can't say they didn't have the result coming after another indifferent display in the field.

Shahzad was the pick of the attack removing Tamim Iqbal early and returning to grab Jahurul and top-scorer Kayes as he claimed 3 for 41. However, his fielding was a concern as he missed Kayes at gully and then watched another ball sail over his head at third man after he'd run in too quickly.

Anderson's difficult time with the new ball continued as his first spell of four overs cost 24 and Bangladesh built a strong foundation as Kayes and Jahurul added 83 for the third wicket. England again had to take pace off the ball through Yardy and Collingwood to assert themselves and once Jahurul was caught behind the innings faded like it had at Trent Bridge.

The last 20 overs brought just 87 runs but, in what would prove crucial in the final outcome, Mortaza managed to connect with some hefty blows during the batting Powerplay. Still, it looked like a formality for England to take the series but a few hours later it was a chastened home dressing room that had to watch the jubilant Bangladesh players sprint around the outfield in celebration.

    Mr Durronto Megh the eccentric bangladeshi, kindly note this. First thrashed by England and then loosing to Ireland by 7 wickets and 5 overs to spare. Well with one off victory no team becomes a tiger. And if that is the attitude I guess that is why even after 10 years Bangladesh is in such a dismal state. Praise ur team only when they get consistent. Do not end up celebrating one of victories and then being made a mock of by others later like now

    Talk about been brought down to earth with a bang,today Bang lost by 147 runs,all they seemed to do is rub England up the wrong way and today they massacred them. 347 runs by England is huge in English condition for a 50 over game. You'd have thought that victory would have given the Bang team some confidence,they might of started with confidence but it soon ebbed away when the score England got started to mount.The way they chased it was bizarre,no shots being played,far too defensive,they didn't even try to give it a go.

    India is a big giant in world cricket. so it is obvious that they won't like to entertain a new comer like bangladesh just like a new collegues in an office where long served staffs are still working.

    But I am sure, one day BD will be a country to whom all the Cricketing nations will return

    Congrats to BanglaDesh :-) ...I'm am Indian and I NEVER miss Tamim Iqbal's innings. He surely is one of the dangerous openers in World Cricket. He is just like Sehwag/Dilshan...A little impatient but very effective on his day..Always looks for boundaries .... I'm sure he'll score loads of runs in Test matches. Only area of concern looks to me is the middle order. In World Cup 2011 it will be very difficult to beat Bangladesh. Who knows 4th Asian country might be the next World Champion... Good Luck !

  • CharonTFm on July 12, 2010, 5:56 GMT

    CONGRATULATIONS Bangladesh!!! I am an Aussie supporter, but it is great to see small teams take up the fighting spirit and challege all teams...all the way. Take heart that although there are a few bad umpiring decisions, it is the right thing to drop it and get on with the game. At the end of the day, don't let those decisions distract you from achieving your GOALS!

    I love cricket and want to see it turn into a WORLD GAME! So take up the FIGHT challenge the TEAMS and make the WORLD CUP the best ever!

    Congrats Masrafee and his company for their first ever victory against the father of Cricket England in any format of the game, From my sixth sense I thought that as Masrafee back in the team as a captain so something positive may happen in the team or more clearly BD will win three or four matches in this tour, remember there are Scotland, Ireland and Holland is there in the current tour.But win against England I did not think at all, the reason is only way the tigers are recently performing not consistent at all. However Now India should fell and invite us to play in India then We may defeat them in their home.

  • proud_Bangladeshi on July 12, 2010, 0:36 GMT

    to cricketisagame, thanks for your nice comments bro. We understand your point that one kris_ram or Dr. Jha does not represent India.

    We appreciate all the Indian people and all other nationalities who support Bangladesh Cricket.

    Cheers!

  • proud_Bangladeshi on July 12, 2010, 0:11 GMT

    Dear Mr krish_Ram and Dr. Jha, I should not be replying to your messages yet could not control myself from writing after reading your messages especially that of Ddr. Jha's. How do you think India helped Bangladesh Cricket and even if they did, may you explain exactly why? Could you explain India's continual refusal to invite Bangladesh Cricket Team for a series in the last 10 years or since so Bangladesh started playing test cricket? Citing Bangladesh as a non-crowd-puller cricket team (which is why your richest cricket board perhaps never invited us yet) may make you happy Dr. Jha but as a Bangladeshi,I feel disgusted. Yet, we invite India to play cricket in our country!

    You know very well the reason behind India (and Pakistan, Sri Lanka I guess) supporting Bangladesh in gaining test status. However, we appreciate the support and we support all other sub-continent friends in all aspects.Can you deny it?

    Support us should you feel from heart. If not, good luck!

  • on July 11, 2010, 23:54 GMT

    Its funny how Some people from India, Pakistan are belittling Bangladesh for celebrating this victory. Off Course everyone (including Bangladesh) knows BD isnt at the level that they should/could have been. Imagine where India and Pakistan is in Football, They been playing football for how long??

    In Cricket Pakistan is a joke but they have so much potential. Look at India, They even loose to Zimbabwe, They play in their home soil and win by preparing the pitch beneficial to their Batsman and Spinners. They dont want to use UDRS for the fear of loosing more games. Only Sri Lanka plays like a real team without wanting to control the system. Question for India and Pakistan fan who is criticising BD fan, With your such high level cricket team, HOW MANY WORLD CUPS HAVE YOU WON so far? you been playing cricket for how long?

  • cric4zh on July 11, 2010, 23:07 GMT

    @cricketisagame, im not 100% agreeed with u because india never welcome Bangldesh to play test on thier soil.......is it called support 4 Bangladesh ? or India doesnt like to help development of BD cricket, actually we dont need any help from India.....we can develope our own game by our self bcz we r real tigers....who knows how to fight and catch his prey..........

  • cricketisagame on July 11, 2010, 19:45 GMT

    I just can say to Wahid Hossain that dont think one Krish Ram represents India. As collective Indians are always supports Bangladesh Cricket always...

  • Showmik on July 11, 2010, 19:30 GMT

  • on July 11, 2010, 16:30 GMT

    @Andrew moreton: Ys i dont want to disagree with you regarding collingwood's out.. But do you regularly watch the game when bangladesh is a participant? if so, as an honest cricket fan, u obviously informed how the umpires snatch our wins many times...my last question to you.. as the English are always against us, what is their achievement in cricket as they are playing cricket since the beginning......

  • Wahid_Hossain on July 11, 2010, 16:24 GMT

    Mr. krish_ram,we respect India as a cricket superpower. But I'm sorry to say you didn't show whatever little respect we deserve.I appreciate India's role in Bangladesh getting test status,but that served India's cause also(one more vote in ICC).We honored you with the chance to play us in our inaugural test;unfortunately you never ever invited us to play even one test in India.Talk about spectator interest!Every other country has invited us for at least 2 series by now and obviuosly we are no great crowd pullers in those countries either.And India is the wealthiest cricket board in the world!

  • _NEUTRAL_Fan_ on July 11, 2010, 15:59 GMT

    I do think Bang is improving and it is heartening but I sincerely agree with Avradeep . It is crucial that the Bang team stays grounded and the players and the fans themselves should DEMAND more regular wins than just the occasional upset. They will have gained confidence which I think is absolutely crucial. By staying grounded and demanding a bit more of themselves will ensure that this confidence does not go to waste. Sadly, although they looked better after their series win vs a depleted W.I. although they were obviously playing better, they failed to RIDE THE MOMENTUM and win more games after that and actually looked to have taken a little backward step during the test series vs Eng, Tamim and Shakib (only bowling wise) apart. I do hope they win the next ODI and the series, that will be a much more justified cause for celebration. To do so , they have to learn from their errors and realise that their 230 or so score was indeed below par despite the win.

  • Bang_La on July 11, 2010, 15:51 GMT

    @Avradeep, its in the nature of the people from Bengal (East and West together) to get overjoyous on small happiness and I think, though its of course not a practical trait, it helps people overcome everyday's sorrow and pain and failures. Said that, this Bangladesh team is crystalizing and one thing I noticed that they don't show any fear (David Lloyd mentioned it). This is encouraging. Thank you.

  • JS82 on July 11, 2010, 15:40 GMT

    Shouldn't someone question Paul Collingwood's honesty here? He should have known he edged it and walk out. If it was Ricky Ponting or any other Aussie player they would have walked out after edging it to the keeper.

  • JS82 on July 11, 2010, 15:11 GMT

    Another positive sign out of this match is the return of Mashrafe. He bowled like he used to 2 years ago. A fit and in form Mashrafe is absolutely vital for Bangladesh.

  • cricketIloveit on July 11, 2010, 15:09 GMT

    I can remember when Sri Lanka were the minnows of world cricket and people said they shouldn't be in the big league. With proper coaching and enough money Bangladesh can also achieve what SL has achieved. And that would be good for world cricket. Now I just wish the Windies could get back to something close to their former greatness. That would also be good for world cricket.

  • gmaurup on July 11, 2010, 15:08 GMT

    Just before the series Siddons said "If Tamim goes off in any of these three one-day games England are in a whole heap of trouble,"... nothing like that happened and yet the series is 1-1. hope something like that happens on 3rd ODI. Despite the loss, England is an extremely good ODI side at home and abroad. making two out of two is very hard to achieve. But looking for that eagerly....Cheers Bangladesh players

  • on July 11, 2010, 15:07 GMT

    England will be in tonne of pressure in 3rd ODI, grab the chance and beat them again. Best of luck Bangladesh.....

  • Avradeep on July 11, 2010, 14:09 GMT

    Be cautious is the message to all those who are lauding the Bangladeshi team.

    Let them win at least 3 of the next 20 matches against other test playing nations - and then usher in all your praises. If there is something called "Law of averages" then this was bound to happen. One of the major problems of Bangladeshi cricket is that too much hype goes on for too little.

    I appreciate the win against England - but there has been a long and illustrious history of false promises in the form of some inspired performances once in every two years by the Bangladeshi cricket team.

    Let the people and media of Bangladesh make the national cricket team realize that this is too little and too far between - only then the appetite for success will grow. For once - indulge in constructive criticism even in happier times. Don't be satisfied with a penny - crib for a thousand dollars.

    Wish Bangladesh cricket all the best!

    good on bangledesh a fine effort against an in form england side who just beat australia in a series now bangladesh need to build on this result they cannot just have a result evry now and then which is once a couple of years against the major teams in cricket they need to start consistently beating these teams now they have been in the top tier of cricket nations for 10 years now players have been regularly exposed now in odis 20/20s against major cricket countries and now they have to step up. test matches i think they are a couple years away yet from being competitive maybe 5 yrs its a lot harder getting adjusted . Players to watch for future i think is tamin iqbal he is a young man just 21 years of age a bit of experience now looks a good attcking batsman imral kayes looks like a good batsmen along with thier spinners shakib al hasan who looks like hes going to be a good all rouder, abual razzak, mamadualah. the talent is thier is just they need to stand up on a regular basis

Time is running out ..everyone is improving.. we need to be consistent and performed as a team. why Ashrafull is again in the team. there is no other talent in BD except Ashrafull!!!! i want to see a Bangladeshi win in nxt match. it hearts me when i have to wait long time for a precious win.

  • on July 11, 2010, 11:46 GMT

    I have something to say to "krish_ram" from INDIA. We appreciate your early support for BANGLADESHI Cricket but what about now. Indian team has played a lot of tests in BANGLADESH, but why haven't they invited BANGLADESH team to their soil? I tell you why, because it's not profitable enough. One of the official from Indian Cricket Board said that. They always criticized our cricket team specially after losing at west-indies world cup.

  • Nayiem on July 11, 2010, 11:13 GMT

    It's a historic win for Bangladesh. The English had the proud that they haven't beaten by Bangladesh any time. But that will not stay any more. Bangladesh has played really well but if they want they could produce more runs on the board. But after all we are really very happy...

  • Bengaltigers4tw on July 11, 2010, 10:48 GMT

    Maybe its time.... Maybe its time for Bangladesh to prove why it's worth its cricet status. Every test playing nation has fell to Bangladesh. Every nation considers Shakib (with the ball), Tamim & Kayes (with the bat) as actual threats. And now, our array of fast bowling is continuing (Shafiul Islam, Mortaza, Rubel Hossain), Maybe now they can finally Do Bangladesh Proud.

  • mrnevergiveup on July 11, 2010, 10:00 GMT

    O my O my O my.... This calls for a blasting party!!!! The English media will surely have great headlines(sarcastic). LoL, the english media's headlines made England look like if they can never be beaten and not by the minnows but the Bengali Tigerskicked their asses... and ripped their pants off!!!! Hats off........

  • on July 11, 2010, 9:56 GMT

    It might sound like sour grapes (probably is a bit to be honest), but BGD only just won against a 10 man team...

  • dr.jha on July 11, 2010, 9:41 GMT

    don't be so overjoyed guys...the wins that bangladesh have had till now have more or less been abberation than anything else.. yes they do have some very good players... and they are still playing test cricket because of help from some other countries ... otherwise their test membership had been revoked long back guys.. so bashing india won't help... rather you should be thankful...oh and yeah.i did support bangla yesterday but reading your comments make me sick... so i'd say .. good luck waiting next nine months for another win..good luck..huh

  • on July 11, 2010, 9:39 GMT

    Carry on Bangladesh . Proud to be a Bangladeshi

  • kamrul8766 on July 11, 2010, 9:26 GMT

    Congrats Tiger.... a deserving win!!!! Love the game of cricket.... and please no hurt feelings against each other....speacially the south asian supporters....I know, India and Pakistan were also supporting the tigers.....as we do the same in a tournament where some of our representative is surviving.... I just wish the Bangladeshi cricketers keep it up and put their best....whether win or loose..

  • on July 11, 2010, 9:20 GMT

    Yah we ar bangali , Now we are win every cricket match. caz we r Tiger== I am happy for Bangladesh produced a performance of immense spirit and character as they secured their first victory over England in any format with a famous five-run.

  • on July 11, 2010, 9:20 GMT

    it proves that we are going to improve...

  • the_unfading on July 11, 2010, 8:48 GMT

    After the Bangladesh Innings ended the commentators (probably Mike Atherton & Nasser Hussain) commented, "How much a 'good team' would have scored given the conditions..probably 30-40 runs more". At the end of the game, England fell short of a 'bad team's score' . England seems to have become overconfident after the T20 WC and the series win over Oz.

  • Shahajada on July 11, 2010, 8:22 GMT

    It's really been a very flat performance by Bangladesh. Jimmy Siddons can't just always sit and watch this kind of sloppy performance again again. Bangladesh should score 280-290. etc etc. that's how the english commentator describe our performance in the first half. Now where are they. I wannat tell them Do you Know. we win the match.

  • on July 11, 2010, 8:19 GMT

    awesome....superb......magnificent.........are these enough for Bangladesh....????

  • rsmehdihasan on July 11, 2010, 8:18 GMT

    for next win how long we have to wait???? can anyone tell me... this way we can not play ..we need consistency.. Ashrafull is again back in team ...what a selection...god bless Bangladesh

  • on July 11, 2010, 8:13 GMT

    yess this is our win against england ever first.....we make all other to their last........ shabbash Bangladesh

    Fantastic Effort from Bangladeshi :)

  • Hasan-Shahid on July 11, 2010, 7:51 GMT

    @Morshed Mannan: You are right. Shafiul did break Trott's rhythm by not allowing him to take the guard again! He hurried Trott in the 2nd test and did it here again! Intelligence! BTW, Bangladesh played with great spirit and heart. Hats off.

  • on July 11, 2010, 7:10 GMT

    Time to show our powerhouse.

  • on July 11, 2010, 6:59 GMT

    This is one of the best wins for the TIGERS which will be remembered by everybody. This time nobody will say it is an upset. Hope from now on this win will convert into winning habits for the TIGERS and many more and frequent wins will come. My heartiest congratulations to the TIGERS and all the Bangladeshis.

  • a.s.rifat on July 11, 2010, 6:53 GMT

    but .....they bat so bad....they should score atleast 270+ in this kind of pitch with 20 overs of power play

  • indicricket on July 11, 2010, 6:47 GMT

    Great day for Bangladeshi cricket. Important now to show consistency

  • on July 11, 2010, 6:46 GMT

    Good luck for the future team... u have shown it time and again but what is needed from you is the consistency...

  • nafee on July 11, 2010, 6:43 GMT

    it was just a matter of time...............England were on the rope all year long against bangladesh & what a good feeling to beat them in their backwards...........................

  • on July 11, 2010, 6:40 GMT

    Definitely very good results for the Tigers. However, given the situation they were in, particularly 149 for 3 after 30th over - they should have scored at least 270 odd runs. It was very similar to the 1st ODI, where they could not capitalise the batting power play properly. They could easily add another 30/40 runs, had they played sensible cricket at the death overs. However, the bowlers bolwed really well. They managed to take wickets at regular intervals. This was the first time in the series, they managed to put some pressure on English Batsmen. I think CollinWood's wicket was the crucial, perhaps the turning point for the tigers. Although Trott played brilliantly but he was losing out of partners at the end. Good come back for Bangladesh and hope to see another similar display in the next match in Nottingham………

  • on July 11, 2010, 6:01 GMT

  • Sohel_ahmed on July 11, 2010, 3:27 GMT

    my two sons were also watching the match with me,aged 10 and 3 and a half.there were both moments of ecstacy and gloom and moods were also swinging accordingly.and when shafiul took the outside edge of trott's bat,all hell broke loose.my youngest,irham was also shouting and jumping up and down as he sensed something really big has just happened.i embraced them both and felt so proud to be a bangladeshi.....

  • Trickstar on July 11, 2010, 3:08 GMT

    1 win in 24 and listen to the comments,how does 1 win excuse all the previous performances.If you couldn't beat a team with 10 players you were never going to win one.Make the most of it because it will be your last for a long time to come.Start giving it the big one when you win a match with 11 v 11.

  • Trickstar on July 11, 2010, 2:58 GMT

    If Bang were ever were going to beat England it had to be today with England having there NO3 Bell injured,lets see how many runs less Bang would of got with one of their top batsman out.Reading these comments you'd think that Bangladesh had won a game before,what a poor set of winners your fans are,really immature comments,make the most of it,it will be last time for a while jokers. People banging on about how bad decisions only go against Bang ,didn't you watch the game Collingwood was given out of a huge inside edge onto pads for Lbw ,that was clear in real time and the umpire must have seen it. Take from the game what you want but the fact it was 11 men versus 10 and that is the only reason Bangladesh won and I love the fact no one has even mentioned that in these comments .Hollow victory or what.

  • Dewan_Jaglul on July 11, 2010, 2:57 GMT

    Extrmely delighted. Wonderful effort from the bowlers. It's time for Tamim to shine from the next one onwards. Keep it up TIGERS!

  • on July 11, 2010, 2:37 GMT

    not only mashrafe nd shafiul were the man on ths match, jonathon troutt was also da the man who took the match on the edge of suspence with a display of cool headed patient batting. i think he should hav announced man of the match along wit mashrafe as well. all about today's match ws a beauty of cricket. nd it was rilly salutable nd higly appreciable tht the bell came to bat with his broken foot. ths is somewhat called the commitment to the country. ths proved tht some tyms patriotism is bigger thn professionalism. once again congrats nd thanks to both teams to present such a thrillin match. rilly enjoyed da match with my english friends in pub nd felt proud to be a bangali .

  • VipulPatki on July 11, 2010, 2:33 GMT

    A very good win indeed! Something I thought would take place in the previous ODI itself. That said, their (BD) batting still lacks killer instinct.

  • raqibulhayder on July 11, 2010, 2:31 GMT

    First of all 100 cheers for the bangladeshi team. They played brave cricket in the end of the English innings. Our 5 players each took 2 wickets, which clearly shows that a bit improvement on the bowling end will brings many more victories like this. I know the next thing I am going to talk about, most of you there will be ready to take a gun and shoot me right in the head. But the fact is, Mohammed Ashraful's tremendous contributions for the Bangladeshi team cannot be denied. The victories against India, New Zealand, South Africa and mainly against Australia. He is, in better words a lucky player for Bangladesh. Last match, Bangladesh put on a better score than today but they still lost but with his arrival, he also bought luck for the team. Next, I really need to point out, why is Shariar Nafees and Alok Kapali left out of the 24 man squad. Shahriar has AMAZING batting history, so why leave him out? To conclude, they day Tamim starts playing 30+ overs regularly, you know the rest.

  • the_evil_weevil on July 11, 2010, 2:24 GMT

    Well, this has made this series very interesting. I offer my congratulations to Bangladesh, even though 236 did not look like enough at the interval they kept fighting and deserved the victory (even as an England fan). But Bangladesh need to keep this level up- flashes of excellence now and then, and the odd win against major sides, is not enough. I hope England will lick their wounds and come back with renewed vigour in the final ODI. Wright and Anderson need a good game or else they may be looking over their shoulders somewhat...

  • on July 11, 2010, 2:14 GMT

  • Meety on July 11, 2010, 2:05 GMT

    Woo Hoo! Bangers beat the Poms - LOL. Great job Bangers, finally it all comes together for a fine team performance. I really think that Kayes & Siddique are finally giving Tamim some top-order support. Don't know whats happening to Shakib, he is off the boil with the bat, (still a very very good spinner). Jahural has impressed me so far - I think some big scores are in him in the future. I would like to see Mortaza playing tests - the Bangers need him. I think Mummudullah needs to bat ahead of Ashraful. We all know Ashraful is talented - but he either gets 0 of 25 balls or 20 off 12. Batting lower (or not playing!) may make things simple for him. The Bangers really have an opportunity to develop into a good side. Another pacer may help. Tamim, Kayes & Siddique as 1,2,3 looks stable and capable. Not sure how 4,5, & 6 should look, maybe Jahural, Raqibal & Mahmudullah, with Shakib at 7, Rahim at 8, Mortaza, Shaffy & Razzak. With Rahim & Raqibal injured, I'd insert Nafees & Ashraful.

  • Avery_Mann on July 11, 2010, 2:00 GMT

    It's just England - don't get too excited.

  • SABD on July 11, 2010, 1:49 GMT

    MY SUGGESTION HAS WORKED! I had suggested that BD play 4 specialist bowlers(3 pacers and 1 spinner), and that's what I believe has done the trick! Few more suggestions: 1.PLEASE KICK THIS ASHRAFUL OUT FOR 2 YRS ATLEAST. BRINGING ASH BACK GIVES THE WORLD THE IMPRESSION THAT WE HAVEN'T GOT REPLACEMENTS FOR HIM WHICH IS NEVER TRUE! 2.When Raqibul returns, give Mahmudullah a short break(but keep him in the squad). 3. Keep playing Faisal. 4. Give Mushfiqur a break and retain Jahurul as wk.

  • on July 11, 2010, 1:47 GMT

    Kudos to the BD tigers.. No offense but, come on I as a neutral cricket fan (I am an Indian BTW), one win will do nothing good. I remember the time when BD won on us in the 2k7 world cup followed by a long run of loses. I hope this win does not follow the same fate. After all, win as many as possible and no one comments on your test status, win one in many and such a win is considered fluke. I wish BD all the best, and as many say, I congratulate BD on their victory.

  • on July 11, 2010, 1:47 GMT

    As a Aussie hahahaha poms couldnt beat Banglsdesh well done in time you will a force in one dayers & tests it took sri lanka along time to be a force in both forms im sure bangladesh arent far behind.

    I am seriously worried about the usual sehwag followers.... I mean where are they, has any1 seen them yet???? Die hard sehwag fans like 'SamK14' have done a runner. Anyway, forget about those losers and I just want to say that I have not seen any game like this today where even in the 50th over no one can predict the winner. I was so tensed that I was jumping up and down. Hats off to BD, our boys played superb. I have noticed that Mashrafe is a very good captain, his field placing, power play timing were all classical text book stuff, well done young man! Also Jahirul is brilliant with the gloves too. I dont want to burst our celebration bubbles, but what I mean is that one win is only gonnabe a vital progress for us if we keep bowling and fielding like this of today. We all want to see our boys performing, being competitive like this everytime and I hope this is a start to our winning ways, INSHALLAH!!!!!! (Ian Bell is the bravest cricketer and thats a fact).

  • on July 11, 2010, 0:08 GMT

    FlaSH IN THE PAN for Bangladesh... England were playing with only 9 batsmen... yet they should have played better against the Bangladesh attack.... still Bangladesh deserve this moment of happiness as they seldom get these.... come tomorrow they will start losing again...

  • Harry0009 on July 10, 2010, 23:42 GMT

    This match shows England's complacency and BD's school boyish personality and over-confidence. I fail to understand BD's ecstatic celebration whenever they win a game against a top team. The reaction to a win is as if they have won a world cup. I can understand this kind of celebration if it was 10 years back when they were still a newbie team to cricket but it looks they are a bunch of school boys who will never grow up. They are a Test playing nation and these wins are expected from them. It was the same thing about India when they won a test in SA and they lost the series 1-2 to them. England is another team that needs to wake up now. They seem to have forgot that they lost 2 consecutive matches against Aus in that series win and that does not augur well. Yes agreed they won the t@0 WC and they deserved it. But, if they have to be a top team, they need to pull up their socks and perform better.

  • ZsZs on July 10, 2010, 23:37 GMT

    Good win Bangladesh, good work.

    That said Bangladesh should be wary of the success. They win once in a while and then rejoice the win so much they need years again to win a ODI game. They need to shrugg off the win and concentrate on the next game. No one will remember this one victory if Bangladesh goes on to lose a few in a row like in the past.

  • on July 10, 2010, 22:58 GMT

    Congratulations Bangladesh! One point of interest is that in the 2nd Test during the recent Bangladesh-English Test Series in England it was Shafiul who managed to bowl Jonathan Trott with a beautiful in-swinger, at a time when Trott was in great form. The Guardian has an article on how Shafiul was able to get under Trott's skin first by disrupting his lengthy 'gardening' ritual and I believe he was able to do that this time as well - as some of you may have noticed, Shafiul aborted his run up before delivering that crucial slower ball. It shows both cleverness and very good bowling! Congratulations to the team again, we Bangladeshis are very proud here in Berlin!

  • on July 10, 2010, 22:38 GMT

  • tksami on July 10, 2010, 22:28 GMT

    Well done Bangladesh. Just the other day I was thinking when will they ever will. A friend had once told me that most of the players smoke cigarettes and so have low stamina. But all that conjectures gone. Today is another day. My hopes soared when Moshrafe gave away only 3 runs in the slog overs. Kudos to the replacement wicketkeeper Jahurul Islam. Well bowled Rubel. Next Tamim; please try to just occupy the crease longer. He is such a great timer of the ball and sheer delight to watch. Bangladesh and Afghanistan both deserve better. Long Live Shonar Bangla.

  • Avenash on July 10, 2010, 22:25 GMT

    Great win for Bangladesh! Shame on you England and Trott...i find it baffling that a guy well set on 94 (138 balls) failed to score six runs from four balls...no argument about nerves cause he scored Test hundred against much more formidable Aussies bowling

  • on July 10, 2010, 22:23 GMT

    I suppose it was too much to ask that england improve on the last game,so they promptly disimproves as they have been since the Rosebowl. From heroes to villains in 7 easy moves. It fulfills our fantasy that our side is actually a preposterous imposter in the world of good ODI cricket, and now that the blip is over we can can get on with our favourite national pastime along with moaning about the weather of denigrating our national sides. It further allows us to reflect on those immortal words of Kipling's about treating success and failures as imposters and enjoying the feeling of failure. It also allows us to feel as previous imperial masters that we have done our bit for our erstwhile subject's good feeling and social happiness. And of course it allows us to pick a "better" teamn as well as get more generous odds for a WC win if we are punters. Well it was all getting a bit much all that winning!

  • on July 10, 2010, 21:14 GMT

    Jewel Thnx for you comment. Yes , Bangladesh is the victim of Bad Umpiring. I think the Umpires who don't have any experience or little experience, ICC select those umpires for practicing in Bangladesh's International Matches. But the amazing thing is, they fear to make decision for the big teams. But For Bangladesh, they don't care about their decision.And the people(a well known commentator of England) who talk about Bangladesh to snatch our test status. Question for him, DID YOU GET ANY STATUS FROM THE ICC ?. The answer is They Don't. If they are in our situation, I afraid they may do worse than ours.

  • on July 10, 2010, 21:04 GMT

    A lucky by chance win by the tigers, I don.t know weather they will repeat the same in theiir next match. the cedit goes to the coash who is working hard to make the team one of the better one.

  • SnowSnake on July 10, 2010, 20:54 GMT

  • CaptainPedant on July 10, 2010, 20:46 GMT

  • on July 10, 2010, 20:43 GMT

    not sure if luke wright and michael yardy are in the team as batsmen or bowlers. think england should stick to the good old strategy of 6 proper batsmen (with kieswetter), 1 all-rounder and four bowlers. the all-rounder should be bresnan or freddie. four bowlers should be broad, anderson, swann and sidebottom/another spinner. otherwise i doubt they'll go places at the 2011 wc.

  • on July 10, 2010, 20:40 GMT

    @ Jewel - Yeah, and look at the decision that he was given out on. There's no bias towards any teams, umpires just get it wrong sometimes. Relax. The Tigers are such a fun team to watch, and so endlessly supportable that to deny them test status would be cruel. The only way teams such as the Bangas and Ireland are going to improve and seriously challenge the bigger teams is by playing them regularly and learning from them. Test status is not something to be taken lightly, but the Tigers deserve it and their fighting spirit, and the fact that they have won a few games, more than justifies it.

    I have forgotten all of my speech for happiness. I love Bangladesh Cricket Team. I love Bangladesh I love Mashrafi. I love the tigers. Congratulation!!!!!! Good Luck Bangladesh.

    its realy great,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • on July 10, 2010, 20:04 GMT

    Johnathon Trott is CLEARLY not a One-Day player.... he wasted his time on Strike for so many periods, England should have won the game with plenty overs to spare but his incredibly LOW strike-rate left it until the last over and the ensuing failure!

  • on July 10, 2010, 20:03 GMT

    Mashrafe's captaincy was the biggest factor behind winning this match today! hats off to him! But BD middle order needs to get it right.....they just seem to be totally out of the track at the moment. Nevertheless, it really was an amazing win for us...:)

  • gmaurup on July 10, 2010, 19:46 GMT

    Congratulations to the team. They have been showing a solid performance for over a year (except Asia cup) and rewards seem to have come at last. I have a request to the BCB though. With world cup in less than a year, please try to make sporting wickets for the cup as Bangladesh play all group matches in home condition. Good for pacers, good for spinners and batsmen also. Bangladesh is performing better in sporting wickets in NZ or England than dead wickets in sub continent. The team looks matured enough to make 250 in sporty wickets regularly. That always gives chance to have a fight. In dead wickets, they do not have capability to score 330 while that is the standard in sub continent wickets. There are 2/3 pacers who can hit 85 mph regularly, two world class spinners in Razzak and Shakib and a hell lot of part time spinners. Why not make sporty stuff, score 250 plus with Tamim and co., and scare the hell out of big teams?

  • on July 10, 2010, 19:43 GMT

    It's really a historic win over England ever first time in cricket. Congratulations Tigers............We are trying our best to play. But almost top class teams always underestimate us that is not fair in the game. Now we can say that we can also win over any strong team in the cricket world. Congratulations Tigers again for their heroic win. I will be very happy if India invites us to play cricket in India. But still they haven't invited us. They show off in cricket. So they cannot want to play against us. I hope that Bangladesh will again win over India in the world cup.

  • provash on July 10, 2010, 19:42 GMT

    congrats Bengal Tigers!!! Making Mashrafi the captain is a rihgt decision, although Sakib was also good. I think it is always useful for Bangladesh to make a bowler or wicketkeeper a captain, but not a batsman or all-rounder. The extra pressure can make the bowler captain more aggressive in bowling, fielding and planning, but it can distract attention of a top batsman, even the likes of Tendulkar failed as captain.

    Although Bangladesh won this match, it showed they don't have any confidence in the last 3/4 batsman. Because at the 5th or 6th wicket they batted so cautiously as if that was the last wicket. If the last 4 batsman are not considered to be able to play the slog overs then why don't send them at the top of the order. Because if all of them got out for a total of 0 that won't harm match. But if they somehow manage some runs that will be a big bonus!

  • Open-Eyed on July 10, 2010, 19:42 GMT

    Does this historic victory over our cricket mentors indicate a coming of age of Bangladeshi cricket or is it just a flash in the pan? Jai mila...finally...better late than never...all kudos to the Bangal boys!!!!

  • W350 on July 10, 2010, 19:37 GMT

    LOL!!Just last week England where tagged world beaters with a series win over a depleted Aussie team..n a few days later...wow...a loss to Bangladesh!! Well a Team doesnt become world beaters or champs by one series victory...Aussies inflicted fear in their opponents cos of the way they played and what achieved(the tag of the world champs,the best or wht not) was cos of the consistency of their performance... N in th that sense this English side has a very long way to go...to reach the levels set by Australia..In fact i believe they havent reached the levels tht S.Africa currently have.. Hats off to bangladesh..they played a brilliant game today...n this side has come a long way...they need to get a lil more consistency into their game!!

  • on July 10, 2010, 19:34 GMT

    certainly some great scenes for bangladesh cricket..nd it was bound to come as they have been continuously playing well over the last year..moreover they have achieved this victory without the top run scorer of the previous match raqibul and also mushfiq...congratulations to BD cricket team for their spirited performance..hope they will continue to play well ..nd even they have a chance of wining this series..letz hope for the best

  • Ibminimaster on July 10, 2010, 19:33 GMT

    well done Bangladesh. now you have beat all the test team countries. well done coach. just one comment on cricketing point. why take Ashraful and destroy him for ever? give the new guy decens a change over him. Ash single handedly almost lost us the game. What a game!

  • on July 10, 2010, 19:15 GMT

    yessssss we did it . well done BANGLADESH

  • on July 10, 2010, 19:14 GMT

    It is a lesson to English medias. They have to understand one thing that England is still under 5th place in the tables of ODIs and Tests. Wining in T20s was purely lucky for they. Let them show their capacity in upcoming series.

    It is really media's hype as Something_Witty told.........

  • Bang_La on July 10, 2010, 19:11 GMT

    Congr8s Bangladesh. Once again you proved your ability.

  • roxap on July 10, 2010, 19:09 GMT

    at last bangladesh have won, now there next win against a competitive side will come after one year or so.....bangladesh was lucky that ian bell was injured other wise as every body know how much he love these bangla medium pacers and a battery of ordinary spinners.............swan was also not playing in this game, in few days time we will see some excellent games when bangladesh will take on Ireland and scotland as these sides are quite similar to each other with irish being the best among them.

  • NaiveTigerFan on July 10, 2010, 19:06 GMT

    Yes.!!!!!! Real joy after a long time! I had a nightmare of a day today but I could care less about my woes right now. The opposition captain said they 'just couldn't beat us today' , (I really loved the words) and I believe him. Finally a day without cries about 'why' and 'how' and 'who'. I really could get used to it. Can I take this opportunity to ask all the people who enjoyed this win not to talk about what is wrong with the tigers' Cricket here today. No negatives today please. We get to roar very rarely and everybody says we should roar more often. Just come out with a clear roar no weeping or whining. Good Job Tigers!

    Atlast Bangladesh win! I do not mean to take away anything from Bangladesh but I'm just saying that the situation could have easily been different if Bell was not injured. Congrats to Bangladesh though. Maybe making Mortaza the skipper was a good idea afterall!

  • on July 10, 2010, 19:00 GMT

    What an amazing victory over mighty England that has come through at the time when we have almost forgotten the taste of victory since last 24 match's.It was a great relief! Well done boYs!

  • nuffsaid on July 10, 2010, 18:58 GMT

    Totally agreed w/ Jewel. I don't know why, Ashoka D. Silva is the man, always!! Where is the hidden hate? Shame on this type of mean mentality- if ICC cannot see these intentional mistakes which is happening quite often and try to correct this, where would cricket go?? SHAME!!

  • Marcio on July 10, 2010, 18:57 GMT

    Which English fool here keeps writing "It must be hard being an Australian fan at the moment"? Check ya red face in the mirror, sunny!

    Well done BD! Saw bits of it on the tele in the pub, and was impressed with the bowling. Some of the BD running between the wickets, though! Strewth! You'd whip a 10 year old's butt for that stuff!

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:56 GMT

    This couldn't have happened at a better time, with England being in the top of their form and Bangladesh injury laden and 247 days without a win. It was a game of nerves at the end, and Bangladesh held theirs. Beautiful game.

  • tanish2009 on July 10, 2010, 18:55 GMT

    It was a much needed victory for Bangladesh since wining was absolutely dry in this year. Reading the bulletin after the Bangladesh Innings I felt Bangladesh do not have any chance since the commentators wrote so many negative words about the approach of Bangladeshi batsman. But at the end,it was up side down!!! so, dear commentators please reserve your comments till the end of the match. Hope Bangladesh will continue..............

  • Kalim-Bangladesh on July 10, 2010, 18:44 GMT

    Its really funny. It seems there is nobody to look into horrible decisions made by so called neutral umpires. ICC will always have a blind eye when rubbish umpiring decisions that kill Bangladesh's cricket. U talk of caught behind decisions, these people even don't leave a chance of giving marginal wide decision against Bangladesh.

    Now that Bangladesh have won I think England should keep their mouth shut for a while now specially their much hyped commentators. We don't borrow player from SA/Ireland/Pakistan. We love our nation and will only win of our own, think of 1st test at lords (Trott -226), ODI in Dhaka (Trott 64 NO) in dieing conditions.

  • plmx on July 10, 2010, 18:44 GMT

    What a memorable win! But spare a thought for RK Illingworth. He will get a real ticking off tonight! Despite his valiant effort he has failed to stop Bangladesh a la NJ Llong!

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:43 GMT

    Where is Geoff Boycott?Please tell us something

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:43 GMT

    Could Mr Ankur please say what team he follows.As he thinks Englands T20 success was such a fluke perhaps he can explain how the Indian team have climbed to number 1 in the test rankings without a series win in South Africa or a series win in Australia since 1985/86 yer know countries where the ball bounces above stump high.I am not suggesting he follows india i am just pointing out that the only great teams in the last 30 years have been West Indies followed by Australia both of whom won practically everywhere.You could argue that any other teams sporadic success was a fluke.

    Me & my two sons,aged 10 and 3 and a half were watching the match with our eyes glued on the tv screen.My youngest was sensing something big was happening out there as he was also jumping up and down with every wicket falling and every dot ball was bowled.All hell broke loose when shafiul took the outside edge of trott's bat;i can't really remember what i was saying or doing then but it was indeed a moment of out of this world kinda joy and i was embracing my sons and was feeling so proud to be a bangladeshi.

  • bdcricfan21 on July 10, 2010, 18:33 GMT

    YESSS!!!Finally a win for Bangladesh-first one in 2010. I am so happy today!!! No criticism, no heartbreaks today baby. Time to celebrate!!! They came through in the clutch and delivered the goods. They showed a great deal of character towards the end and I think Mashrafe deserves a lot of the credit. Can you believe that we have a chance to win a series on Monday? Finally some light at the end of the tunnel. It will be good to read the headlines in the paper tomorrow: BANGLADESH WIN!!!

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:33 GMT

    @ Jewel, or should the cricket be without the ICC? In my point of view, ICC is helpless in making any crucial decision for the improvement for the game....... It always dances on some "powerful partie's" hand.......... What a shame for all of us!

    Anyways, at least something to cheer for us, yeayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!! :D

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:31 GMT

    We played really well but Mashrafi should not bowl in slog over Congr8s to our Tigers

    when bangladesh play poorly everybody laugh around but when tigers roar everyone seems to forget the appreciation.

  • SABD on July 10, 2010, 18:31 GMT

    Congrats Bangladesh. A very good cricket match...a nail-biter. I salute Ian Bell for his effort. This is victory for cricket.

    I would now like to hear from those cheap Indian posters here who place Afghanistan and Ireland over Bangladesh. I know they will start finding faults in England.....

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:30 GMT

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:30 GMT

    well done bangladesh.but ashraful should be executed.he did great for bd once.but has become a more than burden for bangladesh.what did he give today?.batting,bowling,fielding?.none.and english media will continue their natural habits.still they will say bd is insects of cricket.who can bites big teams sometimes.

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:30 GMT

    Just a good confidence booster for BGD, they needed that win desperately. If ENG had Bell batting, I think the 3 runs required for a win would have come. Not to take anything away from BGD players as they well deserved it and kept their nerves in check in the last 3 overs.

    POST MORTEM For BGD

    Batting has become a major issue even with Tamim being bold as he always is. You need more parnerships and more batsmen to get over 25 runs a match. Shakib's batting has gone into hiding, that needs to change to keep the middle order going as they have shown in the past. The bowling has been the most consistent in awhile and I believe Mortaza has helped in keeping the bowling tight. If BGD can continue to bowl the same way and the batting line up can put up 275 then I think we have tthe making of a very good rubber match on the 12th

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:29 GMT

    ICC should be understand that Bangladesh loves cricket from their heart. And Asia will dominate the cricket world..

  • Bhakkar786 on July 10, 2010, 18:29 GMT

    IMO england haven't been the same since after they won their first 3 games againts the aussies. Seemed as if they just threw it away sinnce they had already won the series, perhaps its this over confidence of the team or the over hype of the media about english cricket in the limted format of the game that has cost them this game. England need to realise that Bangladesh is still capable of producing a few upsets on thier day, and that they have to treat the opposition with respect, be it Bangladesh or Australia.

  • Partha30 on July 10, 2010, 18:29 GMT

And James Anderson ( england player ) -- you should be ashamed of your comment..now you know Bangladesh can win...& they actually beat England in their condition ..I would suggest you to keep your mouth shut & conc on your game..after all your own place in the team is not so secured !!

  • on July 10, 2010, 18:24 GMT

    What a brilliant performance by the cricketers of my country, they have'nt looked to be looser in this match even for a moment. We don't have sachin, jaheer, kallis, murali type persons, and we simply don't need them, just if our team is going united and practise how to take pressure and how to bring out a match, then one day Bangladesh will be the no .1 country in ICC ranking, wishing the best for bangladesh cricket.

It seems to me the authorities including the umpires as well as the commentators are working to snatch our test status. The people who saw today's as well as the last match against England can understand why i am talking so. What about the Collingwood caught behind. A blind and dumb can say that it was an out. And if it were an out, Bangladesh would have a great chance to win this game. These scenarios are very common for BD. As we saw the multan test where Ashoka D Silva was the real Man of the Match.

    England's victory in T20 WC was a fluke and it seems they have lost their "fearless" attitude in such a short span of time........

    Mighty England not looking quite like world beaters now eh? The English media needs to learn to stop over hyping their teams. A good 6 - 12 months doesn't automatically make you the best side of all time you know...

    England,the 20-20 champs have a gloomy day today as bangladesh cut their happy run in the one-day match at Bristol.Bangla banged to the anguish of England batsmen.Ian Bell came at the fall of 9th wicket with a runner,but couldnt get any ball to play.What a turn of tides!
