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)

0.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 wide, begins with a wide down the leg side...a gentle loosener

0.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, on leg stump, a hint of swing but it's easily flicked out to deep square leg

0.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, worked off middle and leg to the man at deep square

England 4/0   AJ Strauss 2* (2b)

1.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, on off stump, Strauss defends on the back foot to the leg side

1.2

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, a strangled shout for lbw as Strauss misses a pull, beaten by a lack of bounce, but it's still going well over the stumps

1.3

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 2 runs, worked away through midwicket, nicely placed and allows time for a couple as deep square scampers around

1.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, another appeal for lbw as Strauss misses another pull, this shout is more elongated but it's pitched well outside leg stump...oh my goodness, they review it. What a waste. It started not out and it's still not out.

1.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, that's a good one outside off, pushed across Strauss who felt for it playing away from his body

1.6

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, back of a length and solidly defended back towards the bowler

England 6/0   AJ Strauss 4* (8b)

2.2

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, full outside off, drives and gets a thickish out edge down to third man

England 8/0   AJ Strauss 5* (9b)

3.1

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, back of a length and worked into the leg side

3.2

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, tight on middle stump and Strauss defends...vital not to give Strauss any width

3.3

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, pushed off the back foot into the covers

3.4

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, no run, good stuff from Rubel, on off stump and Strauss can only push it down to mid-off

3.5

Rubel Hossain to Strauss, 1 run, goes full this time and it's driven very straight by Strauss but without quite timing it which allows mid-on to cut off the shot

England 13/0   AJ Strauss 6* (14b)

4.1

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, 1 run, short on leg stump and it's tucked neatly out to deep square

4.6

Shafiul Islam to Strauss, FOUR, edged! Strauss loses control as he drives but no second slip in place, although it may have been wide of him, and it beats third man to cross the rope

England 25/0   AJ Strauss 11* (16b 1x4)

6.1

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, driven off the back to cover, very slow off the surface

6.2

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, round the wicket, floated up and Strauss defends

6.3

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, wide outside off, left alone

6.4

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, on middle and off, Strauss defends to the leg side...showing Naeem some early respect

6.5

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, rocks back to make room to cut but point pulls off a good diving save...that's what Bangladesh need

6.6

Naeem Islam to Strauss, FOUR, ah, that's a shame, hint of width which allows Strauss to cut again and this time it flies finer through third man

England 31/0   AJ Strauss 15* (22b 2x4)

7.2

Abdur Razzak to Strauss, no run, over the wicket, outside off, pushed back to the bowler

7.3

Abdur Razzak to Strauss, 1 run, punched off the back foot down to long on

England 34/1   AJ Strauss 16* (24b 2x4)

8.1

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, round the wicket, angled into Strauss who defends

8.2

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, floated up on middle, Strauss onto the front foot

8.3

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, not much turn and it's played off the back foot to the bowler

8.4

Naeem Islam to Strauss, no run, ooh, nearly! Strauss rocks back to try and cut but is beaten by a touch more bounce. Almost took the edge and the bails

8.5

Naeem Islam to Strauss, 1 run, takes a stride forward and works down to long on

England 36/1   AJ Strauss 17* (29b 2x4)

10.1

Naeem Islam to Strauss, 1 run, touch short and gives Strauss precious width to thread a cut shot through point

10.3

Naeem Islam to Strauss, OUT, what a catch from Siddique! What a catch! Strauss went back to flash a cut, it rocketed towards slip at shoulder height and Siddique was rock solid snaffling the chance. Crowd have gone ballistic

AJ Strauss c Junaid Siddique b Naeem Islam 18 (48m 31b 2x4 0x6) SR: 58.06

England 39/2   AJ Strauss 18 (31b 2x4)
