ICC Champions Trophy, 2006/07 / Commentary

ICC Champions Trophy - 5th match, Qualifying Group

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe

Bangladesh won by 101 runs

0.1

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, bangs it in short, gets some reasonable bounce but that bends away from the batsman and he shoulders arms

0.2

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, a little wider this time and that bends right away from the batsman who has no interest in chasing it

0.3

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, straighter and the batsman defends that one with a straight bat, showing the maker's mark perfectly

0.4

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, again that one was defended and this is tidy so far from Rainsford, right on the money there

0.5

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, a hint of swing again and that leaves the batsman, who leaves the ball in turn

0.6

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, more swing and Saleh leaves that well alone to bring up a maiden first off and that's a good start for Zimbabwe

Bangladesh 0/0   Rajin Saleh 0* (6b)

2.1

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, the batsman steers that one out to cover where it's tidily picked up and Bangladesh are still searching for their first run

2.2

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, left alone as that one sails down the off-side channel

2.3

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, 2 runs, runs at last! And they're cheered loudly by the crowd. Good hands, pushing that in front of square and that's his 1000th run in one-dayers. Well done that man

2.4

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, FOUR, and more runs the very next ball! Struck more fluently this time, a lovely, balanced cover-drive which he threw his hands at, and that evades the diving fielder at cover and races away

2.5

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, 1 wide, very wide down the off-side, but the batsman had a bit of a head-rush and chased it with his bat, but it was too wide to reach

2.5

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, that one swung away from the righthander who slashed at it with an ugly swish

2.6

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run

Bangladesh 7/0   Rajin Saleh 6* (12b 1x4)

4.1

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, play and miss, the batsman was squared right up there by one which beats him with the lack of bounce. This pitch is showing some variation in bounce; it's quite heavily cracked

4.2

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, the batsman squares up to that to defend it and a thick outside edge flies low and out of danger

4.3

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, straighter line and that's defended

4.4

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, left alone

4.5

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, no run, straighter and that's helped into the on-side

4.6

Rainsford to Rajin Saleh, OUT, plumb! Not much doubt about that one, as the batsman shaped to pull but the ball failed to get up at all, and struck on the back leg just above the knee roll. The ball would have gone on to hit the top of off

Rajin Saleh lbw b Rainsford 6 (21m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 9/1   Rajin Saleh 6 (18b 1x4)
