NatWest Series [Bangladesh in England] - 3rd ODI

England v Bangladesh

England won by 144 runs

1.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, tidy start from him, fullish and on a decent line, Strauss clips it firmly but straight to square leg

1.2

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, Strauss has got a good calm air about him and he guides this rising ball down to third man for a single

1.3

Shafiul Islam to Trott, no run, there's a great atmosphere out there, Shafiul getting a big cheer as he runs up, delivers this on a good line outside off and Trott blocks

1.4

Shafiul Islam to Trott, FOUR, top shot this, it was a touch short, not very, but Trott was back and flicked it off his hip powerfully, timing it ideally and collecting four to deep midwicket

1.5

Shafiul Islam to Trott, 2 runs, too short again from Shafiul and Trott rides the bounce and punches it off the back foot through extra cover for two more

1.6

Shafiul Islam to Trott, FOUR, four more! Trott is away! Too short, a touch too far down the leg side and Trott whips it through square leg for four

England 12/1   Shafiul Islam 1-0-11-0

11.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, in the channel on or around off stump, Strauss presses forward to defend

11.2

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 2 runs, too straight, Strauss shuffles slightly to off and works the ball away behind square on the leg side with ease

11.3

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, FOUR, again too straight, and Strauss really punishes him this time. Leg-stump half-volley and Strauss glances past short fine leg to pick up a boundary.

11.4

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, FOUR, Shafiul comes round the wicket, and is dismissively pulled over midwicket! Too short, especially on this wicket, and Strauss pounces. Poor bowling

11.5

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, that's better, fuller on off stump. But all the pressure's off now, Strauss just defends

11.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, FOUR, Shafiul's losing it here, not the comeback over he was hoping for. Short and wide outside off, Strauss scythes a cut past backward point. Crunched right out of the middle

England 59/1   Shafiul Islam 2-0-25-0

22.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, touch short to begin with but the line is good and Strauss works off his hip to square leg

22.2

Shafiul Islam to Trott, no run, this is floated up full and wide outside off stump, Trott was a touch slow to get into position to drive and ended up skewing an inside edge into the leg side

22.3

Shafiul Islam to Trott, FOUR, Shafiul dishes up another invitation to drive and this time Trott makes no mistake, driving very sweetly through extra cover for four

22.4

Shafiul Islam to Trott, 1 run, follows the boundary with an open-faced work to third man for single

22.5

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, back of a length here but a good line and Strauss defends

22.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, good ball here, just a touch of nibble away off the pitch, Strauss aimed to defend and it zipped past the edge. There was an appeal from behind the stumps but nothing from the bowler

England 112/1   Shafiul Islam 3-0-31-0

24.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, anyway, Strauss clips this to deep square for a single

24.2

Shafiul Islam to Trott, 1 run, Trott in the meantime has played this drive very firmly to deep point to bring up his second successive 50

24.3

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, Strauss is beaten outside off stump this time, it was full outside off from Shafiul, which is definitely the place to bowl to Strauss, and it ghosted past the edge

24.4

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, full and straight again and Strauss connects with a drive, firmly to mid off

24.5

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, this time Strauss defends with very soft hands, dropping it towards point and scooting off for one

24.6

Shafiul Islam to Trott, no run, better over from Shafiul and it ends with Trott defending in a hurry off the back foot

England 117/1   Shafiul Islam 4-0-34-0

26.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, SIX, this one's for Simon! Six! Too short from Shafiul, why I don't know, Strauss eagerly slaps a pull shot, with a hint of top edge, over the rope at deep square

26.2

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, and now he can push to mid off and scamper through for a single

26.3

Shafiul Islam to Trott, no run, Trott is on the front foot and driving firmly, but straight to cover

26.4

Shafiul Islam to Trott, 1 run, touch too wide and Trott happily guides it to third man

26.5

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, bowl full and there are so fewer options for Strauss, he pushes confidently to cover

26.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, back of a length again, Strauss works it towards straight midwicket and steals the strike

England 135/1   Shafiul Islam 5-0-43-0

37.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, slipping in to the pads first ball, and Strauss nudges out to deep square leg

37.2

Shafiul Islam to Trott, 2 runs, full and straight, Trott clips elegantly out to deep midwicket, the fielder charges round but that's an easy two and Trott goes to 99

37.3

Shafiul Islam to Trott, FOUR, there's the hundred! Trott is well-pleased with that, off comes the helmet as he carves a square drive through point. He missed out on what would've been a matchwinning ton in the last game, but he's cashed in today

37.4

Shafiul Islam to Trott, no run, slipping down the leg side, the ball clips the pad on the way through to Jahurul

37.5

Shafiul Islam to Trott, 1 run, full and straight, whipped out to deep square leg

37.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, FOUR, imperious! Strauss backs away to leg, picking a slower ball from Shafiul and slamming a drive through cover. Again, it wasn't a slog, he just picked his spot and hit the ball hard, but it was an orthodox stroke. Great batting, but it must be said Bangladesh aren't exactly making it hard for him

England 227/1   Shafiul Islam 6-0-55-0

44.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, full and outside off from Shafiul, Strauss had wandered across his stumps looking for the leg-side dink, he misses

44.2

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, FOUR, 150 up for the England captain! What a knock, gets there by skipping outside leg stump and slicing it over point for four

44.3

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, no run, given how well he's timing the ball, these shots seem needless, Strauss is again looking to deflect it behind him for four and again misses

44.4

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, much better from Strauss, down the wicket and crashing a drive to deep point

44.5

Shafiul Islam to Morgan, OUT, Morgan's gone now! Wickets falling quickly to make a very strange looking scorecard. Morgan tried to smash this over long on, but it was too full for him to get the elevation on the shot and it spooned to Tamim at mid on

EJG Morgan c Tamim Iqbal b Shafiul Islam 1 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

44.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, Strauss is down the wicket again and driving sweetly to deep cover for a single to keep the strike

England 281/5   Shafiul Islam 7-0-61-1

46.1

Shafiul Islam to Bresnan, no run, Bresnan gets a yorker from Shafiul, good delivery and is jabbed back to the bowler

46.2

Shafiul Islam to Bresnan, 1 run, full again, Bresnan this time manages a drive, that goes quickly to long on

46.3

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

46.4

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

46.5

Shafiul Islam to Bresnan, FOUR, very unlucky for Shafiul here, good slower ball, deceives Bresnan as he has a heave across the line, but it took a top edge and flew over the keeper for four more

46.6

Shafiul Islam to Bresnan, OUT, gone this time, wickets tumbling! Bresnan tried to smash it over long on but it was a slower ball and he couldn't time it, Tamim took the chance running in off the boundary

TT Bresnan c Tamim Iqbal b Shafiul Islam 10 (5m 6b 2x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

England 297/7   Shafiul Islam 8-0-69-2

49.1

Shafiul Islam to Yardy, 1 run, length ball outside off is asking for trouble, Yardy crashed it to deep point to give Bopara the strike back

49.2

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

49.2

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

49.3

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

49.4

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

49.5

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

49.6

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!
