Overs 0-50

7.1

Mills to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, pitched up just outside off, Tamim goes for an expansive square drive but doesn't get the elevation needed to clear the infield on the off side, the ball flies to Sinclair at backward point who cups it at head height

Tamim Iqbal c Sinclair b Mills 15 (28m 26b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.69

8.2

Martin to Habibul Bashar, OUT, Martin gets the ball to swing into the right hander, hits a full length outside off, draws Bashatr forward, he gets a thick outside edge through to McCullum. Bashar could have left that alone but he was done in by the swing

Habibul Bashar c †McCullum b Martin 1 (5m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Bangladesh 18/2   Junaid Siddique 1* (17b)   CS Martin 4.2-2-6-1

14.4

Martin to Junaid Siddique, OUT, pitches on a good length bang on middle, shapes away just a touch after pitching, forces Junaid to lunge forward, gets a thick outside egde to Bell at third slip who takes it comfortably and falls over backwards

Junaid Siddique c Bell b Martin 13 (62m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.14

Bangladesh 49/3   Mohammad Ashraful 19* (20b 4x4)   CS Martin 7.4-2-21-2

21.2

O'Brien to Shahriar Nafees, OUT, O'Brien finally gets his reward.....pitches just short of a good length on middle and off, Nafees could have shouldered arms to that one but instead he pokes at it outside off with an open blade, the ball flies off the face of the bat to Fulton at second slip

Shahriar Nafees c Fulton b O'Brien 6 (27m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Bangladesh 68/4   Mohammad Ashraful 32* (44b 6x4)   IE O'Brien 5.2-0-24-1

23.4

O'Brien to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, hits a good length outside off, straightens after pitching, Ashraful lunges forward but leaves a bit of daylight between bat and pad, there was a sound as the ball went through to McCullum. Ashraful turns back. Umpire Long was convinced it went off the edge but Ashraful doesn't look happy with the decision. Replays point more towards the ball clipping the pad. The Snickometer showed the ball clipping the pad so Ashraful was rather unlucky there

Mohammad Ashraful c †McCullum b O'Brien 35 (66m 51b 6x4 0x6) SR: 68.62

Bangladesh 71/5   Aftab Ahmed 0* (7b)   IE O'Brien 6.4-1-24-2

30.1

Martin to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, hits a good length on middle and leg, the ball comes in with the angle, Rahuim tries to flick with his wrists to the on side but is too late on the stroke, the ball hits him in front of leg, umpire Parker raises the finger

Mushfiqur Rahim lbw b Martin 8 (26m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Bangladesh 86/6   Aftab Ahmed 2* (31b)   CS Martin 9.1-2-29-3

38.4

Martin to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, pitched up outside off, the ball angles across the left hander, Shakib lunges forward for the drive past point but gets a thick outside edge which flies to Fulton at second slip. It was a well-judged take and Fulton shows good reflexes and gets both hands behind the ball

Shakib Al Hasan c Fulton b Martin 5 (38m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 20.83

Bangladesh 110/7   Aftab Ahmed 19* (58b 3x4)   CS Martin 13.4-3-45-4

39.3

O'Brien to Shahadat Hossain, OUT, Shahadat doesn't last too long.... pitches on the channel outside off, moves away from the right hander just a fraction, Shahadat can't resist fishing at it and it leads to his downfall as a thin outside edge goes through to McCullum

Shahadat Hossain c †McCullum b O'Brien 1 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Bangladesh 111/8   Aftab Ahmed 19* (59b 3x4)   IE O'Brien 13.3-6-30-3

40.6

Martin to Sajedul Islam, OUT, Martin takes five.... pitches it short of a length, gets the ball to climb on Islam, forces him to play at it, he tries to withdraw the bat but the ball was too quick for him. He gets an outside edge to Fleming at first slip who falls over to his right after pouching it

Sajedul Islam c Fleming b Martin 6 (7m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Bangladesh 122/9   Aftab Ahmed 19* (60b 3x4)   CS Martin 15-3-52-5

45.3

Vettori to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, the innings is wrapped up....flighted outside off, Mortaza steps down and tries to clear long-on, he doesn't get the desired elevation and ends up hitting down Matthew Bell's throat. He takes it really close to the boundary's edge

Mashrafe Mortaza c Bell b Vettori 15 (18m 14b 0x4 2x6) SR: 107.14

Bangladesh 143/10   Aftab Ahmed 25* (73b 4x4)   DL Vettori 2.3-0-10-1
