    3.2 and he gets his second ball! Warner does not play spin very well, and the previous ball sowed some seeds of doubt in his head, possibly. He was down the track this time, did not get to the pitch as it turned into him and still went with the loft over midwicket. He did not time it too well and the catch was taken well by the fielder running in 21/2
    2.1 Watto's gotta go! Mashrafe bowled a great first over, and now gets his reward with a very well-directed bouncer. That was fast and directed at Watto's body, he was hustled into the pull and was quite late on it. The top edge went high and when it came down, it landed in the hands of Aftab Ahmed who took a good tumbling catch. 16/1
    9.4 the skipper is gone! Australia are stuttering here, and Clarke's played an unnecessary shot to give his wicket away. Pitched up on off stump, Clarke was out of his crease and looked to loft it over long off, but did not hit it well enough to clear the ropes. It went straight to the fielder in the outfield 52/4
    6.3 gotcha! Do we have an upset brewing here! Haddin plays an airy-fairy lofted sweep over square leg, just that he was no where near the pitch of the ball and ended up top-edging a dolly to short third man 37/3
    10.5 Australia have lost half their side! Another well-directed bouncer from Mortaza, hurrying Hussey into the pull shot, the top edge balloons behind square on the leg side, Mushfiqur runs across and takes it with the big gloves. Game on folks! 57/5
    12.5 See you later Mr. White! Lovely bit of left-arm spin bowling from Shakib, White tried to double guess him by moving to the leg side, Shakib stuck to his guns and bowled the stock ball on leg and middle, it turned away and beat White's attempted prod to crash into the furniture! 65/6

    19.5 Smith is run out. That was very wide outside off and Hussey could not connect as he stretched out. Smith was eager to run across and nearly made his ground, but Rahim's under-arm got him just short of the crease. Great innings from Smith 139/7

    0.6 expertly done by Tait! After feeding him with thunderbolts at great pace, he slyly slips in the slower one, Kayes is unable to spot it and plays the straight drive very early, it tamely lobs up for mid on to run across and snaffle it. 4/1
    1.3 taken! Great catch from Tait at third man. Ashraful played it well actually, angling the bat and looking to play the short ball down to third man, but timed it too well. It carried to the deep, and Tait ran across to take a nice tumbling catch inches off the turf. Well, you can forget all the run rate calculations unless Bangladesh make a fist of this chase 4/2
    3.2 well, this is not helping Bangladesh's cause at all. A nothing shot from Aftab against some very high quality fast bowling, he is down the track again, without much conviction. Nannes pitches it short of a length, and Aftab swishes the bat in clumsy fashion as it angles across, and gets a top edge that is taken easily 13/3
    10.4 Mr. Cricket earns his side a big wicket! Pitched up and Shakib swings it away high behind square, but there was a hint of top edge as it looped towards deep square leg. Hussey initially misjudged it and ran too far inside, but reassessed in time, to back-pedal and dive full stretch to his back and pluck it a few metres inside the ropes! 63/5
    3.5 Bangladesh are getting outclassed here by some wonderful fast bowling! Short of a length again, hustling the batsman into a false stroke, this time Mahmudullah goes for an unconvincing pull off a ball that was not short enough. It took the top edge again for a dolly to square leg inside the circle 15/4
    13.2 Bangladesh are dying by the sword here. Rahim tries the slog sweep yet again, and gets the top edge, it swirls high and straight down the throat of Hussey senior at long leg 81/7
    11.4 another one bites the dust! Bangladesh are crumbling here! Naeem went for that slog swing over long on, but the timing was average this time and it was a comfortable take for long on running to his right 70/6
    16.5 The old fat lady is clearing her throat. You can slog big Dirk away once or twice, but he is eventually going to get you. Short of a length outside off and the batsman backs away again looking for the swipe over the off side, it takes the top edge and swirls up for a simple catch for the fielder inside the circle at cover 106/9
    15.6 and he gets his man this time! Shafiul looks to charge Smith again, who sticks to his guns and keeps it relatively full. Shafiul does not get to the pitch and inside edges it on to the wood work 100/8
    18.4 And it is all over! Full and straight on the stumps, Mortaza tries to be cheeky and gets across, trying to shovel it fine on the leg side, but makes no contact. Stumps are down, Bangladesh are finished, Pakistan and Australia are through to the next round. 114/10
