England v Bangladesh

England won by 144 runs

2.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Strauss, SIX, shot! That is not the place to bowl, not to Strauss, not a green top. It was very short and Strauss rocked back and slapped it over midwicket for six

England 18/1   AJ Strauss 8* (6b 1x6)   Mashrafe Mortaza 1.2-0-7-1

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

England 132/1   AJ Strauss 71* (82b 7x4 2x6)   Shafiul Islam 4.1-0-40-0

31.3

Abdur Razzak to Strauss, SIX, huge! Strauss comes down the track and clubs this miles over long-on. Absolutely hammered, and that has landed in the building site at that end of the ground!

England 171/1   AJ Strauss 91* (97b 8x4 3x6)   Abdur Razzak 6.3-0-42-0

39.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Strauss, SIX, brilliant shot! Lofted cover drive just sails over the boundary. Great timing, didn't over-hit it, just balance and timing

England 243/1   AJ Strauss 129* (120b 13x4 4x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 9-0-65-0

41.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Strauss, SIX, shot! Full toss from Shakib, Strauss down the ground and swinging this into the scoreboard. Really nailed it

England 261/3   AJ Strauss 140* (124b 14x4 5x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 9.5-0-75-0

48.6

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)   Abdur Razzak 9-0-63-0

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

England 329/7   RS Bopara 27* (12b 1x4 2x6)   Shafiul Islam 8.2-0-79-2

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

England 341/7   RS Bopara 39* (15b 2x4 3x6)   Shafiul Islam 8.5-0-91-2

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!

England 347/7   RS Bopara 45* (16b 2x4 4x6)   Shafiul Islam 9-0-97-2
