NatWest Series [Bangladesh in England] - 3rd ODI

England v Bangladesh

England won by 144 runs

2.4

Shahzad to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, gone! That's the wicket that England wanted, Tamim falls in pursuit of quick runs. It was a slower ball, very full and Tamim tried to smash it over long-off. But he just got underneath it, and the fielder at mid-off circled underneath the steepling chance. Big breakthrough for England, do Bangladesh have the fight in them to keep up the attack without their star batsman?

Tamim Iqbal c Wright b Shahzad 16 (10m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 106.66

Bangladesh 20/1   Imrul Kayes 4* (1b 1x4)   A Shahzad 1.4-0-11-1

4.6

Shahzad to Imrul Kayes, OUT, Shahzad is pumped up now! It was another fiery short ball, on the off side this time and Kayes couldn't get the glove out of the way in time as the ball rose up at him. A little touch on the ball as it went through, and Kieswetter does the rest. Two down now, and one can feel the fight going from Bangladesh now.

Imrul Kayes c †Kieswetter b Shahzad 4 (20m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Bangladesh 24/2   Junaid Siddique 4* (6b 1x4)   A Shahzad 3-1-11-2

10.3

Bresnan to Junaid Siddique, OUT, good catch Luke Wright! Slower ball from Bresnan, Siddique flicked it hard, looking to clear mid on but Wright moved swiftly to his left and held on to the chance above his head. Another one down for Bangladesh

Junaid Siddique c Wright b Bresnan 25 (37m 20b 3x4 1x6) SR: 125.00

Bangladesh 64/3   Jahurul Islam 16* (20b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 4.3-0-30-1

15.4

Broad to Jahurul Islam, OUT, Jahurul falls! The short ball proves his undoing. Well, Jahurul has actually played the shot very well today but this time it got a bit high on his pull shot and he spooned it gently to midwicket

Jahurul Islam c Strauss b Broad 27 (51m 41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 65.85

Bangladesh 77/4   Shakib Al Hasan 2* (10b)   SCJ Broad 4.4-0-12-1

18.5

Wright to Mohammad Ashraful, 2 no balls, OUT, oh dear. Chaos here and Shakib has gone. This looks pretty grim. It was a no ball, Ashraful worked it round the corner, scampered one, looked certain to be coming back for a second as he set off, calling Shakib though, but then Ashraful changed his mind, leaving Shakib stranded midpitch as Collingwood, on all fours, had time to take the bails off

Shakib Al Hasan run out 6 (38m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.57

Bangladesh 86/5   Mohammad Ashraful 3* (10b)   LJ Wright 1.4-0-7-0

21.3

Bopara to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, gone! Bopara strikes with his third ball! That was absolutely plumb, Bopara pulled the length back slightly and got the ball to jag in off the seam to strike Ashraful right infront of middle and leg. There was no issue with height, either, as the ball had kept slightly low. Oh dear. Bangladesh sink even further

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Bopara 13 (28m 19b 0x4 1x6) SR: 68.42

Bangladesh 102/6   Mahmudullah 6* (8b 1x4)   RS Bopara 0.3-0-2-1

25.6

Bopara to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, well, good shot last ball, but an airy waft to the next one leads to his downfall. Bopara pulled the length back and also found some movement away from the bat. Mashrafe, who had been beaten several times on the cut already, finally gets bat on one, and Kieswetter clings on to the thick edge

Mashrafe Mortaza c †Kieswetter b Bopara 14 (16m 17b 3x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

Bangladesh 124/7   Mahmudullah 12* (18b 2x4)   RS Bopara 3-1-15-2

41.3

Yardy to Mahmudullah, OUT, he's given him! Mahmudullah's vigil at the crease comes to an end as Yardy strikes him on the pad. Huge appeal, and the umpire gives him out lbw. Unluckily, it must be said, as the ball was sliding down the leg side. So that eighth wicket partnership record remains...

Mahmudullah lbw b Yardy 42 (90m 81b 4x4 0x6) SR: 51.85

Bangladesh 180/8   Abdur Razzak 23* (31b 2x4)   MH Yardy 2.3-0-14-1

42.2

Bopara to Abdur Razzak, OUT, another one goes! Razzak slashes a full, wide ball out to Bresnan at deep cover. Just one wicket needed now

Abdur Razzak c Bresnan b Bopara 27 (63m 33b 3x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Bangladesh 190/9   Shafiul Islam 6* (3b 1x4)   RS Bopara 8.2-1-33-3

44.6

Bopara to Shafiul Islam, OUT, Bopara ends the game! Shafiul almost swings himself off his feet as Bopara sends one down full and straight. His head is in the air, his eyes, presumably, closed, and he doesn't get close to it. The stumps are disturbed and that's that.

Shafiul Islam b Bopara 16 (10m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

Bangladesh 203/10   Rubel Hossain 1* (7b)   RS Bopara 10-1-38-4
