0.6

Shafiul Islam to Sehwag, FOUR, full, wide and the fielders barely move as Sehwag leans forward and with a flowing drive sends the ball screaming to the cover boundary. 12 off the first over. And Tendulkar will now face his first ball of what could be his last World Cup.

24.3

Abdur Razzak to Sehwag, 2 runs, short ball again, Sehwag stays back and looks to larrup over midwicket, but it stayed low and he had to adjust. Didn't overhit it, and focused on finding the gap at deep midwicket. Nifty footwork from Rubel running across from square leg saves the four

India 197/2   V Sehwag 99* (93b 9x4 1x6)

31.2

Mahmudullah to Sehwag, 1 run, Sehwag has 100, his 1st against Bangladesh, his second in World Cups. Tossed up on the pads and he quietly works it through midwicket. He's played well within himself, but is going at a nice pace. Anagram for Virender Sehwag - We Shiver, Danger. Bangladesh with agree.

31.4

Mahmudullah to Sehwag, 1 run, uppish cut, but Sehwag manages to get it to land just in front of a diving short third man.

India 202/2   V Sehwag 101* (95b 9x4 1x6)

32.3

Naeem Islam to Sehwag, 1 run, whoa, what was that? Sehwag goes back and looks to chip-loft over long on. You thought there was a gap there, but there wasn't. He did well not to time it, else he'd have holed out.

34.6

Shafiul Islam to Sehwag, 1 wide, a very very short ball, loops slowly over the batsman's head and it's too high for the umpire's liking, Bangladesh can't afford these free runs

34.6

Shafiul Islam to Sehwag, SIX, oh dear, Shafiul's day just got even worse, a full toss to end the over and that was effortlessly swung over wide long-on for a massive six that means 18 came off the first over in the Powerplay. Bangladesh fans may want to look away over the next hour

35.6

Rubel Hossain to Sehwag, no run, a slow short ball to end the over, a much better one for Bangladesh, Sehwag waited for ages for that to arrive as he attempted a paddle-pull, bottom-edges it onto his pad, he's not sure where the ball is and starts setting off for a single, the notices the ball is only a few yards off the stumps and gets back in the crease
