ICC Champions Trophy, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC Champions Trophy - 4th match, Qualifying Group

Bangladesh v West Indies

West Indies won by 10 wickets (with 80 balls remaining)

4.2

Taylor to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, poor shot. It was not nearly short enough for the pull Ashraful attempted and the ball skidded through and gave Billy Bowden one of his simpler decisions

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Taylor 2 (18m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Bangladesh 10/1   Shahriar Nafees 7* (18b 1x4)   JE Taylor 2.2-0-7-1

19.5

Samuels to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, and that is the breakthrough! Flatter and wider from Samuels, and Shahriar's attempted cut flies firmly through to Chris Gayle at slip. That's the end of a fine innings, but the onus is now on Aftab to make his a big performance&

Shahriar Nafees c Gayle b Samuels 38 (86m 68b 5x4 0x6) SR: 55.88

Bangladesh 95/2   Aftab Ahmed 53* (43b 7x4 2x6)   MN Samuels 2.5-0-10-1

20.3

Collymore to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, Lazy footwork from Hasan, inside edge attempting a loose drive and the balls cannons into his off stump. "That's ****," splutters the Father of Bangladesh Cricket. He has a point

Shakib Al Hasan b Collymore 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 96/3   Aftab Ahmed 54* (44b 7x4 2x6)   CD Collymore 5.3-0-29-1

20.4

Collymore to Habibul Bashar, OUT, a first-baller to follow his second baller at the weekend. Habibul only half forward and with the bat lurking behind his front pad, not much doubt that that was going on to remove his middle stump. In the space of two balls Bangladesh have gone from looking comfortable to being in the mire

Habibul Bashar lbw b Collymore 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 96/4   Aftab Ahmed 54* (44b 7x4 2x6)   CD Collymore 5.4-0-29-2

23.5

Samuels to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, a soft end to a good innings. Aftab takes a step down the pitch and looks to smack Samuels over the top but it lacks real power and Chanderpaul at long on doesn't have to move to take a regulation catch

Aftab Ahmed c Chanderpaul b Samuels 59 (86m 55b 7x4 2x6) SR: 107.27

Bangladesh 107/5   Farhad Reza 4* (8b)   MN Samuels 4.5-0-16-2

26.3

Bravo to Farhad Reza, OUT, wide of off stump but Farhad attempts a shot that's part drive, part cut, and completely nothing, lacking any discernable footwork, and a big edge clatters into his stumps. "What a pony," moans Miller ... among other unprintable comments.

Farhad Reza b Bravo 7 (23m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.00

Bangladesh 111/6   Khaled Mashud 1* (4b)   DJ Bravo 0.3-0-0-1

31.2

Gayle to Mohammad Rafique, OUT, oh dear, oh dear, Rafique's gone as well! Floated onto leg stump by Gayle, and a tangled sweep shot is adjudged lbw. Not utterly convinced on first viewing by that one, to be honest, but umpire Taufel had no doubts.

Mohammad Rafique lbw b Gayle 7 (19m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 125/7   Khaled Mashud 6* (19b)   CH Gayle 0.2-0-0-1

34.2

Bravo to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, What a catch! What a catch! Absolutely astonishing take from Bravo, plucked off his bootlaces, one-handed in his followthrough! Brilliantly athletic and just reward for an excellent spell. He's off on a celebratory lap of the pitch, as Bangladesh's dismal collapse continues

Mashrafe Mortaza c & b Bravo 7 (12m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Bangladesh 132/8   Khaled Mashud 6* (26b)   DJ Bravo 4.2-1-4-2

40.6

Bravo to Abdur Razzak, OUT, fuller and wider, and out! A big swish of the bat and a thin nick through to the keeper. Enticing the drive and reaping the rewards. Brilliant stuff from Bravo, who has yet to concede a run in front of square, let alone a boundary.

Abdur Razzak c †Baugh b Bravo 9 (23m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 39.13

Bangladesh 151/9   Khaled Mashud 15* (43b)   DJ Bravo 8-1-11-3

46.3

Taylor to Syed Rasel, OUT, the innings ends with a diving catch. Rasel aimed to clip the ball to leg but only got a leading edge which lobbed high into the covers. It was probably Lara's catch but there was a marked lack of calling and in the end Samuels races in from backward point, diving forward full length to catch the ball a foot off the ground

Syed Rasel c Samuels b Taylor 3 (19m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 17.64

Bangladesh 161/10   Khaled Mashud 22* (59b)   JE Taylor 5.3-0-32-2
