NatWest Series [Bangladesh in England] - 3rd ODI

England v Bangladesh

England won by 144 runs

3.1

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, good start from the new bowler, crucially a full length, and straight and Trott hurries into a defence

3.2

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, good ball again, rising from a length outside off, Trott blocks solidly

3.3

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, very full again, Rubel has started well, Trott taps it to mid off and takes a single

3.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, slung across Strauss from over the wicket, full, maybe later in his innings Strauss would have had a dart at it, but at the moment he's content to leave

3.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good ball this, closer to off stump, rising from a decent length, Strauss shoulders arms

3.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, FOUR, one bad ball ruins the over, and it deserved all it got, short, wide, four. Strauss needs no second invitation in that area

England 25/1   Rubel Hossain 1-0-5-0

5.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, Rubel liked this! He followed through a long way to have a stare at Strauss, it was full and zipped past Strauss's attempted drive

5.2

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good ball again, forcing Strauss into a defensive block

5.3

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, that's the place to bowl, especially to Strauss, full, on and around off, and Strauss leaves

5.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, once again Rubel continues to probe the channel outside off stump, he just needs to stay there for the entire over

5.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 2 runs, having left the last few Strauss this time plays, calmly guiding it down to third man for a couple

5.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good over in the end, finishes with another leave outside off stump

England 29/1   Rubel Hossain 2-0-7-0

7.1

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, lovely stuff from Rubel, slinging it full and straight, finding some in-drift, Trott jabs it out to mid on

7.2

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, pulls his length back a fraction, but not too short, Trott works it to fine leg for a single

7.3

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, neatly played by Strauss, he's looked serene this morning, and gently strokes this to mid off

7.4

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, slung in on a good line and length, Trott hops back and defends

7.5

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 no ball, oh dear, no ball this time, the delivery itself was not appalling, outside off and defended but it's free hit time!

7.5

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 wide, the free hit will have to be bowled again, because it's short and bounces miles over Trott

7.5

Rubel Hossain to Trott, FOUR, this time it's a touch fuller, Trott has a mow, and it comes off the top edge, sails over the keeper and one-bounces for four. Poor discipline from Bangladesh, I'd hate to think what Siddons is making of it. He looks very glum in the dressing room

7.6

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, good response from Rubel, swift pace, touch of bounce and Trott takes his bottom hand off the bat as he defends

England 40/1   Rubel Hossain 3-0-15-0

9.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, slung wide of Strauss outside off, he thought about a cut but opted to leave well alone

9.2

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good cricket this, very full and around off stump, and Strauss drives very firmly to mid off

9.3

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good stuff again from Rubel and Strauss defends firmly to point

9.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, FOUR, good shot, this time it was a touch overpitched, but that's far less a crime than bowling short, Strauss climbed into a square drive and it sped away for four

9.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good response from Rubel, back on to a good length and line and Strauss blocks

9.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good over finishes with Strauss defending

England 45/1   Rubel Hossain 4-0-19-0

33.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, leg-stump half-volley nudged to deep square for one

33.2

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, back of a length, Trott aims a slightly uncertain push through the off side and is well beaten

33.3

Rubel Hossain to Trott, no run, again beaten on the outside edge! Trott comes down to have a word with Strauss and a look at the pitch. There may have been a touch of extra bounce on that one

33.4

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, flung down very wide, Trott would've got a wide if he hadn't slapped that out to cover point

33.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, very full on off stump, not quite the yorker but close to it. Strauss drives back to the bowler, but off the toe end of the bat

33.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, FOUR, shot! Strauss goes to 98 with a textbook cover drive. Pitched up outside off, not quite the half-volley but Strauss drives on the up and pierces the cover field, great balance and timing in the drive

England 183/1   Rubel Hossain 5-0-25-0

35.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, FOUR, well, the line was ok but the length was far too short. That's just too easy for Strauss, who rocks onto the back foot and crunches a pull out to deep square leg

35.2

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, again back of a length and straight, this time Strauss is content to just work it off his hip to short fine leg for one

35.3

Rubel Hossain to Trott, 1 run, fuller from Rubel, Trott dinks to cover and they pick up a quick single

35.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, FOUR, short and wide outside the off stump this time, terrible bowling from Rubel. He's hitting a length to Trott, but as soon as Strauss comes on strike it's just a load of short, wide filth

35.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, FOUR, slower ball, looked like a cutter and Strauss was slightly caught out by it but went through with the cover drive to chip the ball over the cover.

35.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, yorker to finish, outside off stump and jammed out back to the bowler

England 201/1   Rubel Hossain 6-0-39-0

43.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good bowling from Rubel, Strauss was looking for to chip a full ball over the keeper's head, but he ended up toe-ending it back to the bowler

43.2

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, good stuff again from Rubel, finding some away drift at a full length, Strauss squeezed it out to extra cover

43.3

Rubel Hossain to Collingwood, OUT, good catch on the boundary at deep midwicket by Ashraful, diving forward as Collingwood heaved a low full toss in the air, Ashraful held on and Collingwood falls

PD Collingwood c Mohammad Ashraful b Rubel Hossain 8 (8m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

43.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, Strauss is on strike as the batsmen crossed, here he gives Morgan the strike by edging down the wicket and driving through extra cover

43.5

Rubel Hossain to Morgan, 1 run, gets a decent delivery first up from Rubel, on and around off stump and Morgan outside edges down to third man

43.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, full ball to finish and Strauss keeps the strike by squeezing it to short third man

England 275/4   Rubel Hossain 7-0-43-1

45.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 leg bye, the batsman wandered miles outside leg stump and Rubel followed him, cramping Strauss for room and it thuds off the pad for one

45.2

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

45.3

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, OUT, Strauss falls now, but what an innings it's been! 154 from 140 balls, he's been threatening all summer in one-day cricket, looking in sublime touch without making the big score, this time he's really done his job. In the end he sliced an attempted cover drive in the air where deep point held on

AJ Strauss c Shakib Al Hasan b Rubel Hossain 154 (201m 140b 16x4 5x6) SR: 110.00

45.4

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

45.5

Rubel Hossain to Bresnan, FOUR, awful delivery from Rubel, short and wide and Bresnan helps himself to four, crashing it through point

45.6

Rubel Hossain to Bresnan, 1 run, much better, full and straight and Bresnan crashes it back down to long on, via the bowler for a single

England 289/6   Rubel Hossain 8-0-50-2

47.1

Rubel Hossain to Yardy, 1 run, he's away straight away, driving neatly through cover for a single

47.2

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

47.3

Rubel Hossain to Yardy, 1 run, 300 up for England, Yardy chipping down to long on for one

47.4

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

47.5

Rubel Hossain to Yardy, 3 runs, odd shot this, it was a slower ball heading a long way down the leg side, Yardy was through his leg-side heave very early and it came off the back of the bat down to third man

47.6

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   Rubel Hossain 9-0-61-2
