England won by 144 runs
12 July 2010 (50-over match)

Rubel Hossain to Bopara, 1 run, nothing fancy from Bopara first ball, just opening the face and guiding it to third man to give the strike back to his captain


Rubel Hossain to Bopara, 1 run, at the moment he's content to take a single to third man and give Tim Bresnan, returning to the side in place of Anderson today, the strike

England 284/6   RS Bopara 2* (2b)

Shafiul Islam to Bopara, 2 runs, Bopara gets two here, thanks to some swift running, the batsman walked across to off stump and flicked it wide of deep midwicket for a couple


Shafiul Islam to Bopara, 1 run, just a single here, similar shot, but going straight to the fielder on the boundary

England 293/6   RS Bopara 5* (4b)

Rubel Hossain to Bopara, 1 run, Bopara still can't find a big shot, instead picks a single down the ground


Rubel Hossain to Bopara, 1 run, this time Bopara set himself for a big shot, but it was full and swinging into the batsman and he could only swing it down to long on for a single


Rubel Hossain to Bopara, FOUR, Bopara gets four this time, but not as he planned, length ball from Rubel, which is dangerous, and it flew off an outside edge wide of the keeper

England 308/7   RS Bopara 11* (7b 1x4)

Abdur Razzak to Bopara, 1 run, good bowling this, Bopara was looking for a big shot over the leg side, but Razzak went full outside off and Bopara could only squeeze an outside edge away


Abdur Razzak to Bopara, 1 run, again Bopara is aiming a big leg-side shot, but once more he can't time it and it trickles to deep midwicket


Abdur Razzak to Bopara, SIX, bang! Finally Bopara pulls it off, getting down on one knee and sweeping it handsomely into the crowds at deep square

England 319/7   RS Bopara 19* (10b 1x4 1x6)

Shafiul Islam to Bopara, (no ball) 2 runs, oh dear, this is not the time to bowl a no ball! It was on a length as well and Bopara swung it towards deep midwicket for a couple. Free hit time


Shafiul Islam to Bopara, SIX, wow, that's pretty special! Bopara drove a length ball perfectly straight and over the sightscreen


Shafiul Islam to Bopara, FOUR, oh again! Lucky for Bopara and he has four more, slicing a drive in the air over short third man for another boundary


Shafiul Islam to Bopara, 2 runs, more luck for Bopara! dropped by Rubel running in from long on, should have taken it


Shafiul Islam to Bopara, SIX, oh dear, punishment for the missed chance. Quality shot this, languid check-drive that flew over long on for six


Shafiul Islam to Bopara, SIX, Bopara finishes it in style! Six more! 28 off the final over, another length ball from Shafiul and Bopara drove it sweetly over long on for another six. What a comeback he's had!

England 347/7   RS Bopara 45* (16b 2x4 4x6)
