ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 9th match, Group B

Bangladesh v Ireland

Bangladesh won by 27 runs

6.4

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   Tamim Iqbal 39* (28b 7x4)   JF Mooney 1.3-0-10-1

8.5

Mooney to Junaid Siddique, OUT, he's gone! None of the fielders looked that interested first up but some lazy running from Junaid has cost him his wicket. Mistimed a drive to mid-off and looked to skulk a single, Ed Joyce's throw hit direct and Junaid was a fraction short of his ground

Junaid Siddique run out 3 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Bangladesh 61/2   Tamim Iqbal 42* (34b 7x4)   JF Mooney 2.5-0-13-1

11.1

Botha to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, the silence is absolutely deafening, as Tamim drives a bit lazily outside off stump, and the skipper Porterfield leans forward at point to take the most crucial wicket of the day so far!

Tamim Iqbal c Porterfield b Botha 44 (52m 43b 7x4 0x6) SR: 102.32

Bangladesh 68/3   Mushfiqur Rahim 5* (5b 1x4)   AC Botha 1.1-0-6-1

15.2

Botha to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, now then, now then! This is a massive wicket! Shakib can't make his lifeline count, as he is beaten for lack of pace off the pitch, plays too early off the back foot and spoons a simple return catch to the bowler!

Shakib Al Hasan c & b Botha 16 (17m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Bangladesh 86/4   Mushfiqur Rahim 5* (10b 1x4)   AC Botha 3.2-0-13-2

33.3

Dockrell to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Dockrell strikes! The teenager makes the breakthrough, and it's a poor stroke. An injudicious sweep, against the spin, an easy top-edge, and the man on the 45 backpedals to swallow a sitter

Mushfiqur Rahim c White b Dockrell 36 (95m 66b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Bangladesh 147/5   Raqibul Hasan 30* (53b 1x4)   GH Dockrell 5.3-1-18-1

35.2

Dockrell to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, gah. Down on one knee, patted to backward square. A carbon copy of the Mushfiqur dismissal. And another failure for the erratic Ash

Mohammad Ashraful c White b Dockrell 1 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Bangladesh 151/6   Raqibul Hasan 33* (58b 1x4)   GH Dockrell 6.2-1-18-2

38.1

Rankin to Raqibul Hasan, OUT, not even in the frame! Pushed to mid-on, aggressive fielding, one-handed pick up and under-arm and Raqibul has to go! Replays show he was at least two feets short of the crease, another careless way to go, and Ireland have this game by the scruff now

Raqibul Hasan run out 38 (87m 69b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.07

Bangladesh 159/7   Naeem Islam 3* (6b)   WB Rankin 6.1-0-38-0

42.3

Botha to Shafiul Islam, OUT, Shafiul's torturous innings ends as he pops forward and plays around a straight ball. He called for a review but it only confirmed the worst, heading half-way up leg stump. Three wickets now for Botha, all he's done is bowl straight

Shafiul Islam lbw b Botha 2 (14m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.76

Bangladesh 170/8   Naeem Islam 12* (15b 2x4)   AC Botha 4.3-0-24-3

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   Naeem Islam 22* (32b 2x4)   DT Johnston 8-0-39-1

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   Rubel Hossain 2* (2b)   DT Johnston 8.2-0-40-2
