ICC Champions Trophy, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC Champions Trophy - 5th match, Qualifying Group

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe

Bangladesh won by 101 runs


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   Shahriar Nafees 0* (13b)   EC Rainsford 3-2-7-1


Ireland to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, strangled down the leg-side and that's really very well held by Taylor, diving low to his left and getting his left glove underneath it to scoop it up. That's a good decision from the umpire to match; the batsman just getting a shade of glove on it. Zimbabwe's tails are up pretty early on indeed

Aftab Ahmed c †Taylor b Ireland 3 (20m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Bangladesh 26/2   Shahriar Nafees 12* (28b 2x4)   AJ Ireland 4.1-1-15-1


Kamungozi to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, brilliant catch, went back to give himself room to cut but the ball bounced a little more than he expected on this slow pitch and he couldn't keep it down. Rainsford flung himself to his left at backward point and held the chance inches off the turf. Big wicket for Zimbabwe

Shakib Al Hasan c Rainsford b Kamungozi 36 (75m 52b 3x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Bangladesh 109/3   Shahriar Nafees 54* (98b 9x4)   T Kamungozi 3.3-0-12-1


Rainsford to Habibul Bashar, OUT, full, gives himself room, looks to smash it over cover for a maximum but all his ambitions are shattered by Rainsford's accuracy

Habibul Bashar b Rainsford 30 (50m 40b 4x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Bangladesh 189/4   Shahriar Nafees 100* (143b 15x4 1x6)   EC Rainsford 7.4-3-29-2


Ireland to Farhad Reza, OUT, more width, another swing but can only find the bottom of the bat and it loops to extra cover. Tough pitch to come in and smash it around on - he's made a duck

Farhad Reza c Utseya b Ireland 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 196/5   Shahriar Nafees 107* (146b 16x4 1x6)   AJ Ireland 7.5-1-36-2


Brent to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, the slower ball does for him, that bottom hand comes through too quickly and he holes out to deep mid on - it was bright but brief from Bangladesh's quick bowler

Mashrafe Mortaza c Chigumbura b Brent 6 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Bangladesh 210/6   Shahriar Nafees 114* (152b 17x4 1x6)   GB Brent 5.4-0-21-1
