ICC Champions Trophy, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC Champions Trophy - 5th match, Qualifying Group

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe

Bangladesh won by 101 runs


Mashrafe Mortaza to Chibhabha, OUT, this one is right on line and Chibhabha tries to play it through the on side, the ball straightens slightly and strikes the front pad just above the ankle. That is heading for middle and leg and Bangladesh have their first breakthrough

CJ Chibhabha lbw b Mashrafe Mortaza 16 (23m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.00

Zimbabwe 26/1   BRM Taylor 9* (14b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 3.3-0-12-1


Mashrafe Mortaza to Taylor, OUT, soft run out - classic mix-up and Zimbabwe pay the price with Masakadza sacrificing himself. Taylor middled the ball with a good shot which took the opposing stumps and the richochet was quickly gathered and returned to the keeper who waited and took the stumps. Taylor set off and Masakadza was stranded in no-man's land, and he crossed with the scampering Taylor to let that batsman stay in.

H Masakadza run out 2 (18m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Zimbabwe 35/2   BRM Taylor 16* (33b 2x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 6-2-14-1


Mohammad Rafique to Strydom, OUT, cleaned him right up with a quicker one that rocketed against the pads off the bat and straight into the sticks. This wicket was always on the cards with Strydom struggling against the spin.

GM Strydom b Mohammad Rafique 4 (24m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Zimbabwe 61/3   BRM Taylor 38* (56b 6x4)   Mohammad Rafique 2.3-0-7-1


Shakib Al Hasan to Taylor, 1 run, OUT, dear oh dear, Taylor has worked it to deep backward square, turned for a quick second but Matsikenyeri has not moved - poor Taylor looked up to see his partner unmoved at the other end. For the second time in the innings, Taylor sprints passed a partner, running him out.

S Matsikenyeri run out 9 (20m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Zimbabwe 78/4   BRM Taylor 46* (66b 6x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 0.1-0-1-0


Shakib Al Hasan to Taylor, OUT, looks dangerous this, Taylor's been dragged out of his crease, over-balanced and Mashud has whipped off the bails. They are going to the third umpire but Taylor has walked. That could be it...

BRM Taylor st †Khaled Mashud b Shakib Al Hasan 52 (97m 74b 7x4 0x6) SR: 70.27

Zimbabwe 88/5   E Chigumbura 4* (7b)   Shakib Al Hasan 1.4-0-8-1


Shakib Al Hasan to Chigumbura, OUT, stunning effort from Saqibul as the batsman tries to turn the ball away and gets a leading edge high into the on side. There is no one fielding inside the ring so Saqibul has to make the ground himself and completes the catch with a fine diving catch

E Chigumbura c & b Shakib Al Hasan 27 (46m 53b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.94

Zimbabwe 123/6   GB Brent 10* (36b)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.2-0-17-2


Shakib Al Hasan to Brent, OUT, and another one bites the dust as Brent gets a huge top edge to an attempted sweep which is safely pouched by Bashar at midwicket

GB Brent c Habibul Bashar b Shakib Al Hasan 10 (42m 38b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

Zimbabwe 123/7   P Utseya 0* (0b)   Shakib Al Hasan 8.4-0-17-3


Mohammad Rafique to Ireland, OUT, and that's the end of Ireland, a swipe across the line and the experienced Rafique hits the leg stump - not sure where he was trying to hit that, but at least he didn't block it - again...

AJ Ireland b Mohammad Rafique 1 (8m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 9.09

Zimbabwe 127/8   P Utseya 2* (8b)   Mohammad Rafique 9.5-1-26-2


Abdur Razzak to Utseya, OUT, another one falls, big swipe across the line trying to keep up with that uber-run rate and it rattles the middle poll. That ball started straight, bounced straight and hit straight, unlike the shot

P Utseya b Abdur Razzak 3 (22m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.07

Zimbabwe 130/9   EC Rainsford 2* (4b)   Abdur Razzak 6.2-2-12-1


Abdur Razzak to Kamungozi, OUT, and that's it, game over. He goes back to one that he should be forward to, it careers past a flapping bat, taking out all three.

T Kamungozi b Abdur Razzak 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 130/10   EC Rainsford 2* (4b)   Abdur Razzak 6.4-2-12-2
