ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 28th match, Group B

Bangladesh v England

Bangladesh won by 2 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

0.2

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, that's a good one, Prior is beaten by one which straightens from outside off stump and draws the batsman into a loose push

0.3

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, beauty! Two in two, but this one was better. Started closer to the stumps and held its line to zip past the outside edge. Squared up Prior completely

0.4

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, fuller and wider outside off which allows Prior to leave alone

0.5

Shafiul Islam to Prior, 1 run, back of a length outside off, driven square towards backward point who can't stop it cleanly despite a good dive

England 3/0   MJ Prior 1* (4b)

2.1

Shafiul Islam to Prior, 1 run, leans forward and opens the face to guide the ball through backward point...looks for two but third man is round quickly

2.3

Shafiul Islam to Prior, FOUR, hint of width and it's met with a flowing square drive which races between point and cover...that will make Prior feel better

2.4

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, tighter to off stump, Prior onto the front foot and pushed down to mid-on

2.5

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, full on off stump and pushed firmly towards the bowler...playing with the full face is key for Prior

2.6

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, full on middle and off, pushed to mid-on...a decent finish to the cover

England 12/0   MJ Prior 6* (9b 1x4)

3.6

Rubel Hossain to Prior, no run, angled into the pads, half an appeal but it's going well down the leg side

England 13/0   MJ Prior 6* (10b 1x4)

4.2

Shafiul Islam to Prior, no run, back of a length on off stump and Prior defends back to the bowler

4.3

Shafiul Islam to Prior, 2 runs, a touch straight this time, Prior works it through midwicket

4.4

Shafiul Islam to Prior, FOUR, that's a lovely shot, a long half volley which Prior leans into and drives it perfectly through the covers...that's how he plays in Test cricket

4.5

Shafiul Islam to Prior, 1 run, pushed towards leg stump, trying to compensate, and it's worked down to long leg

England 21/0   MJ Prior 13* (14b 2x4)

5.1

Rubel Hossain to Prior, no run, sweetly timed with a back-foot drive but goes straight to cover

5.2

Rubel Hossain to Prior, no run, good line on middle and off, Prior defends straight down the pitch

5.3

Rubel Hossain to Prior, 2 runs, touch short outside off and the width allows Prior to drive square through backward point

5.4

Rubel Hossain to Prior, no run, on the back foot, worked into the leg side and can't beat midwicket

5.5

Rubel Hossain to Prior, no run, back of a length, Prior again can't work the ball past midwicket

5.6

Rubel Hossain to Prior, no run, full on off stump, Prior defends, that's an impressive over from Rubel who has made a good start

England 27/0   MJ Prior 15* (20b 2x4)

7.1

Abdur Razzak to Prior, 1 wide, OUT, gone! What a bizzare dismissal, Prior has had a brain fade. It drifted down the leg side, Prior missed it and drags his back foot. Rahim takes off the bails and Prior is just safe, but then he stays out of his crease and Rahim shows brilliant awareness to pull the stump out of the ground to complete the stumping a second time. Brainless from Prior, superb from Rahim

MJ Prior st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Abdur Razzak 15 (35m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

England 32/1   MJ Prior 15 (20b 2x4)
