Bangladesh tour of England, Ireland and Scotland, 3rd ODI: England v Bangladesh at Birmingham, Jul 12, 2010
England won by 144 runs
12 July 2010 (50-over match)

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

England 6/1   IJL Trott 4* (4b 1x4)   Shafiul Islam 0.4-0-5-0

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   IJL Trott 10* (6b 2x4)   Shafiul Islam 1-0-11-0

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   AJ Strauss 14* (13b 1x4 1x6)   Rubel Hossain 1-0-5-0

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

England 40/1   IJL Trott 20* (22b 3x4)   Rubel Hossain 2.5-0-15-0

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

England 45/1   AJ Strauss 22* (34b 2x4 1x6)   Rubel Hossain 3.4-0-19-0

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.

England 51/1   AJ Strauss 28* (39b 3x4 1x6)   Shafiul Islam 1.3-0-17-0

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

England 55/1   AJ Strauss 32* (40b 4x4 1x6)   Shafiul Islam 1.4-0-21-0

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   AJ Strauss 36* (42b 5x4 1x6)   Shafiul Islam 2-0-25-0

Abdur Razzak to Trott, FOUR, reverse-sweep! Great execution of the shot by Trott, the ball was full and just outside off. He set himself early, kept his eye on the ball and just angled it down to third man for four

England 70/1   IJL Trott 28* (40b 4x4)   Abdur Razzak 1.3-0-8-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Trott, FOUR, wrong line from Shakib, he sends it down towards leg stump from a very wide angle and Trott has no trouble getting down on one knee to sweep the ball hard down to fine leg

England 75/1   IJL Trott 33* (45b 5x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 0.2-0-4-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Strauss, FOUR, reverse-sweep from Strauss now! He was into position before the ball had even been bowled, and gets a good connection to beat the man at backward point

England 84/1   AJ Strauss 46* (59b 6x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 1.2-0-8-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Strauss, FOUR, Strauss is showing how down with the kidz he is, this time it's a reverse-sweep, playing it nicely, meeting it on the full and flapping it round the to fine third man for four

England 98/1   AJ Strauss 54* (64b 7x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 2.1-0-16-0

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

England 111/1   IJL Trott 47* (63b 6x4)   Shafiul Islam 2.3-0-30-0

Abdur Razzak to Trott, FOUR, top shot this, very good from Trott, picked a gap in front of midwicket and shoved the ball through from outside off stump, timing it well for four

England 122/1   IJL Trott 54* (72b 7x4)   Abdur Razzak 3.2-0-15-0

Abdur Razzak to Trott, FOUR, oh lovely shot, really good from Trott, he timed this superbly, it was a touch short and he whipped it at the top of the bounce, well in front of midwicket for four

England 144/1   IJL Trott 64* (80b 8x4)   Abdur Razzak 5-0-28-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Strauss, FOUR, good shot, pulling a spinner is always tricky, especially Shakib who really skids them through, Strauss was back in an instant and crashed it in front of midwicket for a boundary

England 150/1   AJ Strauss 80* (89b 8x4 2x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 3.4-0-25-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Trott, FOUR, edged! Genuine edge off Trott's bat, through the vacant slip area and down to third man

England 177/1   IJL Trott 79* (95b 9x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 5.4-0-37-0

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   AJ Strauss 98* (103b 9x4 3x6)   Rubel Hossain 5-0-25-0

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

England 191/1   AJ Strauss 104* (107b 10x4 3x6)   Rubel Hossain 5.1-0-29-0

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

England 197/1   AJ Strauss 109* (109b 11x4 3x6)   Rubel Hossain 5.4-0-35-0

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.

England 201/1   AJ Strauss 113* (110b 12x4 3x6)   Rubel Hossain 5.5-0-39-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Trott, FOUR, the runs are flowing now! Half-volley on leg stump, Trott gets down on one knee and sweeps hard down to long leg.

England 205/1   IJL Trott 87* (105b 10x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 7.1-0-45-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Trott, FOUR, four more! And the runs aren't coming from slogs, just well-executed cricket shots. This time Trott hangs back and clips through midwicket, the shot he's played so many times today and he's playing it well

England 209/1   IJL Trott 91* (106b 11x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 7.2-0-49-0

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

England 222/1   IJL Trott 103* (112b 12x4)   Shafiul Islam 5.3-0-50-0

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   AJ Strauss 118* (113b 13x4 3x6)   Shafiul Islam 6-0-55-0

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, FOUR, lovely shot here, very correct, skipping down the wicket and crisply punching a lofted drive over mid off with the straightest of bats

England 249/1   AJ Strauss 133* (122b 14x4 4x6)   Mashrafe Mortaza 9.3-2-29-1

Abdur Razzak to Strauss, FOUR, four this time! Conventional sweep and he picked the gap between deep square and deep midwicket, connected very firmly

England 266/3   AJ Strauss 144* (128b 15x4 5x6)   Abdur Razzak 7.4-0-48-0

Abdur Razzak to Collingwood, FOUR, delicate, very good from Collingwood, paddling a sweep shot very finely to collect four

England 271/3   PD Collingwood 8* (6b 1x4)   Abdur Razzak 8-0-53-0

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

England 279/4   AJ Strauss 152* (135b 16x4 5x6)   Shafiul Islam 6.2-0-59-0

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

England 288/6   TT Bresnan 4* (1b 1x4)   Rubel Hossain 7.5-0-49-2

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

England 297/6   TT Bresnan 10* (5b 2x4)   Shafiul Islam 7.5-0-69-1

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)   Rubel Hossain 9-0-61-2

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

England 333/7   RS Bopara 31* (13b 2x4 2x6)   Shafiul Islam 8.3-0-83-2
