ICC Cricket World Cup, 9th Match, Group B: Bangladesh v Ireland at Dhaka, Feb 25, 2011
ICC Cricket World Cup - 9th match, Group B
Bangladesh won by 27 runs
25 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Johnston to Imrul Kayes, (no ball) FOUR, ooh, four more but Kayes had no idea where this was. Outside off stump and Kayes threw his bat at it, flew off the inside edge, past the stumps and away to the boundary. No ball too, so free hit time


Johnston to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, as is the case so often, the free hit is underwhelming as Kayes gets down on one knee and hurls this to midwicket

Bangladesh 16/0   Imrul Kayes 5* (2b 1x4)

Rankin to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, better delivery to start this Rankin over. On a length around off stump, the ball slides off a thick edge down to third man


Rankin to Imrul Kayes, no run, good line and length to Kayes, and compact defence


Rankin to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, width is a dangerous thing for a bowler. Kayes has the chance to free his arms and eases his blade through the line, hurtles off to the point boundary. Whirlwind start for Bangladesh

Bangladesh 32/0   Imrul Kayes 10* (5b 2x4)

Mooney to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, Kayes hangs deep in his crease to work a single to midwicket to bring Tamim back on strike. Decent start from Mooney

Bangladesh 43/0   Imrul Kayes 11* (6b 2x4)

Johnston to Imrul Kayes, no run, Johnston finds a length and off stump line, which has been all too rare so far, Kayes punches a drive to point where Porterfield fields smartly


Johnston to Imrul Kayes, no run, again it's a good delivery that Kayes can only push to cover


Johnston to Imrul Kayes, no run, hat trick of dot balls! Huge achievement given the way this morning has gone. Kayes picks out midwicket with a work to leg


Johnston to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, not exactly where Kayes wanted but this slides off the outer half of the bat to run down to third man and bring up Bangladesh's 50 - off 35 balls. Breathless stuff


Johnston to Imrul Kayes, no run, ...just about. The line was wrong - outside leg - but Kayes couldn't get hold of it

Bangladesh 51/0   Imrul Kayes 12* (11b 2x4)

Mooney to Imrul Kayes, no run, Kayes tries to repeat the shot but doesn't quite time it as well


Mooney to Imrul Kayes, 1 wide, OUT, stunning work from O'Brien behind the sticks! Absolute lightening and the crowd is dumbstruck. Complete shock and silence as Kayes tries to flick to leg, overbalances momentarily and O'Brien makes a leg-side stumping look easy. Much, much needed for Ireland and the wicket has come through a moment of inspiration from one of their best

Imrul Kayes st †NJ O'Brien b Mooney 12 (29m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Bangladesh 53/1   Imrul Kayes 12 (12b 2x4)
