ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 1st match, Group B

Bangladesh v India

India won by 87 runs

6.5

Patel to Imrul Kayes, OUT, If you dropped a pin in Mirpur, you'd hear it in Dhaka. Kayes has played onto Munaf. Back of a length again from Munaf, that's his business area as he gets this to angle across from slightly wide of the crease. Kayes went for the cut, and was almost surprised by the drop in pace. In hindsight, he did not have the room for the cut. Inside edge and it crashes into the stumps. The crowd loses its voice.

Imrul Kayes b Patel 34 (33m 29b 7x4 0x6) SR: 117.24

Bangladesh 56/1   Tamim Iqbal 7* (13b)   MM Patel 0.5-0-1-1

23.1

Harbhajan Singh to Junaid Siddique, OUT, is that a stumping, third umpire is called off, Harbhajan gets the ball to ship away sharply from Junaid, who is beaten as he looks to play on the front foot, Dhoni is an exceptional stumper these days, he's whips off the bails in a jiffy and after several replays the third umpire sends Junaid on his way, much to the Mirpur crowd's disappointment, reward for Harbhajan who has bowled extremely well today

Junaid Siddique st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 37 (66m 52b 1x4 1x6) SR: 71.15

Bangladesh 129/2   Tamim Iqbal 41* (59b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 6.1-0-24-1

32.1

Patel to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, and he strikes once more in his first over of the spell, this time off the first ball itself, Tamim looks to thrash a length ball towards the leg side, he makes good contact but the ball flies only as far as Yuvraj Singh, who takes a sharp, low catch at midwicket, end of Tamim's vigil, he wasn't at his best today, getting bogged down early on, but held up one end

Tamim Iqbal c Yuvraj Singh b Patel 70 (136m 86b 3x4 1x6) SR: 81.39

Bangladesh 188/3   Shakib Al Hasan 29* (27b 2x4)   MM Patel 5.1-0-24-2

39.4

Pathan to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, Shakib falls. Mirpur is silenced once again. Harbhajan takes the catch and puts it in his pocket. Yusuf makes the only noise emanating from the ground - he roars. Slow delivery, tossed up invitingly on middle and leg, and given the circumstances, Shakib had to go for that. He got under it, but couldn't quite go all the way. Harbhajan set himself up a few yars in from deep midwicket and pouched it. Pocketed it, would be more appropriate

Shakib Al Hasan c Harbhajan Singh b Pathan 55 (65m 50b 5x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Bangladesh 234/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 18* (22b 2x4)   YK Pathan 6.4-0-47-1

42.3

Khan to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Rahim goes. No repeat of the 2007 50 for him. Zaheer lands this slow and full outside off and Rahim again looks to hoist him over the covers. Raina, inside the circle, timed his jump perfectly to haul it back in.

Mushfiqur Rahim c sub (SK Raina) b Khan 25 (39m 30b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Bangladesh 248/5   Raqibul Hasan 7* (9b)   Z Khan 7.3-0-32-1

44.3

Patel to Mahmudullah, OUT, Munaf has yorked him. Perfect delivery, if you can land it there, you don't need pace. Munaf doesn't have any pace. Almost no follow through after he delivered that. On the base of the stumps as Mahmudullah backs away and looks to first drive, and then steer, and finally squeeze through the off side. It is not there for any of those shots and pings leg stump. Gone

Mahmudullah b Patel 6 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Bangladesh 261/6   Raqibul Hasan 13* (15b)   MM Patel 7.3-0-35-3

46.3

Patel to Naeem Islam, OUT, Naeem nailed. How many of you have Munaf in your fantasy team? Raking it in, eh? He does what he does best - keeps it back of a length on off stump. This one keeps low too as Naeem plays all around it, in an attempt to flick. Munaf doesn't appeal as much as direct the umpire to raise his finger. And he obliges. Four for Munaf.

Naeem Islam lbw b Patel 2 (8m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Bangladesh 275/7   Raqibul Hasan 24* (19b 1x6)   MM Patel 8.3-0-47-4

47.6

Khan to Abdur Razzak, OUT, and gone. Easy as it comes, Zaheer has a wicket off his last ball. Length ball on off stump, holds its line and thuds into Razzak's pads as he tries to work it leg side. Would have hit leg

Abdur Razzak lbw b Khan 1 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Bangladesh 279/8   Raqibul Hasan 25* (23b 1x6)   Z Khan 10-0-40-2

48.3

Patel to Shafiul Islam, OUT, Harbhajan throws down the stumps and Shafiul has to go. Shafiul defends from leg stump, straight to Harbhajan swooping in from wide mid on, and Hasan sent him back. Harbhajan hit the stumps at the batsman's end and it was all over.

Shafiul Islam run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 280/9   Raqibul Hasan 26* (25b 1x6)   MM Patel 9.3-0-48-4
