ICC Cricket World Cup - 9th match, Group B
Bangladesh won by 27 runs
25 February 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)
1.1

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

1.1

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

1.2

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Johnston has found his line and length this time and it keeps a little low which means Tamim jabs his defence down

1.3

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, no great pace but a tight line and length which brings a valuable dot ball for Johnston

1.4

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, hint of width allows Tamim to drive, but it's a careful shot and finds cover

1.5

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, just a fraction too close to the pads and Tamim takes full toll. Flicks of the wrists, nothing more than that and it hurtles through the square leg region

1.6

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, decent ball to finish, back of a length around off stump. Tamim gets back to try and punch a drive but can't get any power on the shot

Bangladesh 20/0   DT Johnston 1-0-10-0
3.1

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, carefully defended into the off side

3.2

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, catch that, if you dare! Length ball that Tamim hammers back airily in the direction of the bowler, who had barely got his arm up by the time the ball and dented the advertising hoarding

3.3

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, four more! This is electrifying. More edge than middle but Tamim won't care, he's flying now. Flashes at some width and it flies off a top edge through fine third man

3.4

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, better line and length and punched to short cover

3.5

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, carefully blocked this time. Tamim has earned the right to block a few

3.6

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, like all the best batsmen in the right mood, Tamim keeps the strike off the last ball of the over. Flicking to deep square

Bangladesh 41/0   DT Johnston 2-0-19-0
5.1

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

5.2

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

5.3

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

5.4

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

5.5

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, this is turning out to be a decent over for Ireland, Tamim nudges a single to deep square. Can Johnston finish well?...

5.6

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   DT Johnston 3-0-21-0
7.1

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, Johnston finds an off stump line, he also finds the middle of Tamim's bat but it goes straight to cover

7.2

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, back of a length and Tamim offers the straightest of blades in defence

7.3

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, much fuller this time, almost yorker length, turned to deep midwicket for a quiet single

7.4

Johnston to Junaid Siddique, 1 run, Junaid is away, full-facing a single down the ground

7.5

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, no run, the pitch seems a touch slow and Tamim's back-foot punch finds cover here

7.6

Johnston to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, given this was a shin-high full toss Johnston is luck to get away wit it. Quietly prodded to deep square. Decent mini-period for the Irish here

Bangladesh 56/1   DT Johnston 4-0-24-0
22.1

Johnston to Raqibul Hasan, 1 run, not a great start to the new spell, fired down the leg side. Worked to fine leg for an easy single

22.2

Johnston to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, no bounce here and Mushfiqur, hanging on the crease, has to jab his bat down in defence

22.3

Johnston to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, hint of width but it keeps low and finds the toe-end of a flat-footed slash outside off stump

22.4

Johnston to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, very straight, good length too and Mushfiqur's punch is neatly collected by the bowler

22.5

Johnston to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, enough room to flash a cut shot out to deep point

22.6

Johnston to Raqibul Hasan, no run, blocked back to the bowler to end a good comeback over for Johnston

Bangladesh 107/4   DT Johnston 5-0-26-0
24.1

Johnston to Raqibul Hasan, no run, Johnston continues with a good line and length and nothing the batsman can do but defend

24.2

Johnston to Raqibul Hasan, no run, slower ball here, genuine offspinner, doesn't do much off the pitch though but another dot ball clocked up

24.3

Johnston to Raqibul Hasan, 1 run, overpitched and the crowd goes wild as a drive finds deep cover. Fair to say the supporters haven't had much to cheer of late

24.4

Johnston to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, more noise from the crowd as this is driven square of the wicket on the off side

24.5

Johnston to Raqibul Hasan, 1 run, another single, good work from these two this over, flicked around the corner

24.6

Johnston to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, four singles in a row as the over ends by Mushfiqur turning his hands over the ball to send it to deep square. Good work

Bangladesh 113/4   DT Johnston 6-0-30-0
45.1

Johnston to Abdur Razzak, no run, oh dear, how has Razzak missed that!? Gift short and wide outside off stump, but the flat-footed slash missed

45.2

Johnston to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, this time Johnston is back on a line and length, slower ball too, and it's forced to mid-on, the batsman injecting all the pace on that

45.3

Johnston to Naeem Islam, 1 run, it's full and straight and cut off at cover before a really silly shy at the stumps allows a single

45.4

Johnston to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, again the delivery is good, very full, Razzak whips it to deep midwicket but there is a fielder out there

45.5

Johnston to Naeem Islam, 2 runs, the line slips a fraction down leg and it allows Naeem to clip a couple straight of deep midwicket. The crowd are in full voice, urging something from their team

45.6

Johnston to Naeem Islam, 1 run, good work from Naeem, keeps the strike by dinking a single to cover and haring off for a sharp single. Just four good overs and Bangladesh will feel right in this

Bangladesh 185/8   DT Johnston 7-0-36-0
47.1

Johnston to Naeem Islam, 1 run, another full toss but again the batsmen can't cash it. Leg stump this time as well, but worked to midwicket

47.2

Johnston to Abdur Razzak, 1 run, three full tosses in a row, at least this was struck hard. Straight to the man at the boundary though, who slides well at deep midwicket to keep this to one

47.3

Johnston to Naeem Islam, no run, back of a length, Naeem cuts hard but picks out cover

47.4

Johnston to Naeem Islam, no run, big, walking appeal from Niall O'Brien as Naeem flashes and misses outside off stump. Think the sound was bat hitting ground though

47.5

Johnston to Naeem Islam, 1 run, Johnston lands the yorker which is bunted out to mid-off. It's tight bowling but the batsmen are not trying anything here

47.6

Johnston to Abdur Razzak, OUT, another one goes. Razzak at least trying to up the pace. Slower ball and he's through a leg-side slug far too early, canons off the back pad onto the stumps. Can Bangladesh even reach 200? What a disappointing showing it's been

Abdur Razzak b Johnston 11 (28m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.75

Bangladesh 193/9   DT Johnston 8-0-39-1
49.1

Johnston to Rubel Hossain, 1 run, Rubel does exactly what he needed to, getting the single first ball to bring Naeem back on strike, driving a full ball to cover

49.2

Johnston to Naeem Islam, OUT, that will be all, Naeem trying something inventive, which is no bad thing, getting down on one knee to scoop over short fine leg, gets too much bat on it and it loops straight to the man.

Naeem Islam c Dockrell b Johnston 29 (64m 38b 3x4 0x6) SR: 76.31

Bangladesh 205/10   DT Johnston 8.2-0-40-2
