    2.1 Anderson is the man in Adelaide as he succeeds at once again finding the outside edge, this time of Tamim's bat as he pushed at this back of a length which shaped away. This time it goes to second slip, who takes it comfortably in the end. Superb start for England as Bangladesh go two down early in the piece 8/2
    0.4 and Anderson has plucked one early for England as he gets one across the left-hander, who ends up feeding an outside edge to the third slip, who is able to snaffle this comfortably 3/1
    20.2 and the move has worked for England as Jordan succeeds in nipping out the promising Sarkar, as the bowler delivers a skiddy, short ball delivered from wide of the wicket, which the batsman was looking to avoid as he ducked away, but he could not remove his glove from the equation in time as the ball catches the glove on the way to Buttler behind. Big blow for Bangladesh as these two looked quite settled out there 94/3
    45.4 tries to glide away a single through third man, with Mahmudullah, who looks a bit tired out there, late as he tried to get to the striker's end, with the throw knocking down the stumps well in time 240/5
    21.5 and in the softest of ways Shakib has to depart from the middle after feeding an edge to the slip to this one drifting in from outside off, before just turning away. Can't believe he didn't see the slip right behind, as this one lands right in the big buckets of the fielder. Really poor choice of shot for Shakib there 99/4
    47.5 Mushfiqur's innings comes to c lose as this slow, off-cutter from Broad ends up being sliced over to Jordan on the ring at cover, who is able to get under it safely. Falls just eleven short of what would have been a second Bangladesh World Cup ton 261/6
    48.6 Morgan backpeddles at mid-off to take this miscued scoop from Sabbir, who was looking to hit it more through long on. Good finish here for England so far as they look to curb the run-rate towards the end of this innings 265/7

    7.2 given plenty of flight as Ali advanced down to try and create a single through the leg side. Ali thinks a run is on offer as he takes a couple of steps, before seeing the fielder pickup the ball and position himself for a throw at his end. Bell was guilty of ball watching as Ali tries desperately to get back, and adds the dive for good measure, but the throw is just too good. Really silly way to get yourself out as the risk really wasn't worth the reward in the end. Big wicket that for Bangladesh 43/1
    26.1 shows just how damaging pace can be when you bowl in the right areas as he removes the Big Kahuna, who was looking to skip down and slap the bowler through the covers, before feeding an outside edge to the keeper behind. Ends a wonderful guiding hand as England now face a bit of pressure for the first time in this chase 121/3
    19.5 Mashrafe has the final laugh as Bangladesh pickup a wicket out of nowhere. Gets Hales to offer an outside edge which deflects away to the keeper, who takes it comfortably in the end. Bangladesh really needed that wicket as their body language started to lag a bit over the last few overs 97/2
    35.4 and Mortaza produces the goods once again in the first over of a fresh spell as he succeeds in getting Root to play at this one which just holds its line after being bowled on a fuller length. Mushfiqur is able to take this from behind as Bangladesh exult with joy across the field. Really big wicket as Root was settling in for the potential heist later on 163/6
    26.4 Rubel has become the star for these Bangladeshi masses as he gets Morgan to fall for the leg-side trap, sending in a short delivery which Eoin sends with a hook over to deep fine leg, who runs to his right before snapping this with both hands just over the rope as this was destined to go over for a maximum. Morgan departs without a run to his name, and England now in some trouble 121/4
    29.4 now Taskin gets into act as Taylor threw his hands at this short of a length outside his off stump, with Kayes at slip doing no wrong to snaffle the chance. The stadium bursts into noise as Taylor has to make his exit, with England in real, serious trouble 132/5
    45.5 Taskin might just well be the toast of Dhaka tonight as he induces an outside edge to this attempted dab from Jos, who looked in two minds as to whether to go back or forward to this slightly back of a length outside his off stump. Met with wild jubilation from the Adelaide crowd as Bangladesh now go just ahead on the cards 238/7

    45.6 Jordan gets into a mix-up as he works away this back of a length to the off side, going down the track in hopes of Woakes reciprocating, but when he sees him stay put, is forced to get back to his end, putting in a dive before the direct hit took shape. The umpire wants to be careful though as he looks at the replays, which show that the bat may have just turned on Jordan as he attempted to make his ground, with the angle suggesting he might not have had the relevant portion of the bat on the ground when the bails were disturbed. I wouldn't want to be a third umpire right now. Huge decision in the context of the game. The result has come in, and it is given out, which is greeted with a huge roar across the ground. Jordan can't believe it, but he has to go. 238/8
    48.1 The men in green are on top once more as Rubel delivers a 142 kph length straight on the stumps which Broad plays all around. Met with huge celebrations across the ground as the balance shifts once more towards Bangladesh 260/9
    48.3 and Rubel has knocked the England lions out of the 2015 World Cup with a full, almost yorker-length ball which castles Jimmy as he looked to get it away through the off side 260/10

Match Notes

  • Twenty-two balls from Chris Jordan

    Or how England can take a simple idea and stretch it till it makes no sense at all

  • Pace bowlers' success Mashrafe's reward

    Bangladesh's pace bowlers have had their moments even in the recent past, but very few times in this team's history have they been as effective as a collective as they were against England

  • The curse of KP

    That England can't play one-day cricket very well is old news; the real problem is that right now they can't play any kind of cricket

  • A balm for the nation

    Dhaka has been witness to great cricket celebrations several times in the last two decades but the latest one had that dash of spontaneity the country needed

  • Embarrassment to foster radical change

    Good may come of this debacle. There can be no concealing the poverty of England's cricket now. This performance - or lack of it - cannot be tolerated
