Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 11 Runs | ICLBD: 155/9

  • Mosharraf Hossain28 (21b)
  • Mohammad Sharif2 (2b)
  • AJ Hall2-0-24-0

That's it. Bangladesh have lost a pretty narrow margin here, just 12 runs. Had their middle order not thrown away their wickets, the result may well have been different. It all started going wrong with Habibul Bashar's dismissal off Klusener. His two wickets off consecutive deliveries swung the match in World XI's favour.

Bangladesh were 75 for 1 at one stage, and looked set for a successful run-chase, but lost six wickets for 15 runs in four overs to deny themselves a chance to win this one.

Lance Klusener is the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 63 and 3 for 18.

Klusener: "It was certainly my night tonight. I got the opportunity to bat a reasonably long innings and had a little bit of luck with the ball. We needed a few wickets in the middle period, and it certainly worked for us tonight."

Habibul Bashar: "We didn't bat well and lost too many wickets in the middle of the innings. Our bowlers did a pretty good job and we were happy to keep them to 160-odd. We are slightly inexperienced but we have to learn from our mistakes and look to finish off games after getting into a good position."

Chris Harris: "We are pretty happy with that start. We could have got a lot more than we actually did. We were probably 20 short and probably let the Bangladeshis get 20 too many. We were under the pump with them at 75 for 1 and they are a dangerous side that can chase down any score, but we came back well."

So, that's all we have from here folks. Thanks for tuning in and don't forget to join us tomorrow for the second ICL World Series match between India XI and Pakistan XI. Until then, it's goodbye and goodnight from Siddhartha Talya on the commentary and Sanjay Murari from the scoring desk. Adios!
