ICC World Twenty20 - 5th match, Group A

Bangladesh v West Indies

Bangladesh won by 6 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)

13.5

Abdur Razzak to Samuels, no run, huge shout for lbw. Close. Full and on the off and middle, Samuels is rooted to the crease and pushes at it. The arm-ball, from round the stumps, evades the prod and strikes him in front of off stump. That would have hit the stumps. The umpire must have felt the point of impact was outside off

13.6

Abdur Razzak to Samuels, 1 run, gets off the mark with a drive to long-on

West Indies 96/2   MN Samuels 1* (2b)

14.1

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, 1 run, yorker length, on the middle and leg, squeezed out to long-on. Samuels looks to be in pain. Trouble for West Indies.

14.3

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, no run

14.4

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, 1 run, drifts in on to the middle, full and straight, driven to long-on

14.6

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, 2 runs, low full toss, driven to right of long-on. The runs are coming in just ones and twos. They need a few big overs. Bangladesh are doing well with the squeeze act

West Indies 102/2   MN Samuels 5* (6b)

15.2

Abdur Razzak to Samuels, 1 run, slightly short in length, turns away from off stump, cut to deep point.

15.6

Abdur Razzak to Samuels, 1 run, quick, flat, full and on the legs, turned past short fine leg

West Indies 106/3   MN Samuels 7* (8b)

16.1

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, SIX, That's a biggie! He cleared the front foot, opened up his stance and slogged it over cow corner. That went out of the ground

16.2

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, FOUR, Brutal hit straight down the ground. The charge is on. Samuels is hitting out.

16.3

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, SIX, Samuels goes down town. Full and on the middle stump line, again he cleared the front foot and launched it right over the bowler's head. Stunning.

16.4

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, FOUR, The run-orgy continues. Full and on the off stump line, Samuels leans forward to drive it inside-out over cover

16.5

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, no run, beaten outside off stump. Full and outside off, he tries to drive but can't connect

16.6

Mohammad Ashraful to Samuels, OUT, Samuels is gone. Full and on the off stump line, he drives straight to cover. Samuels had looted 20 runs in the over before succumbing.

MN Samuels c Shakib Al Hasan b Mohammad Ashraful 27 (17m 14b 2x4 2x6) SR: 192.85

West Indies 126/4   MN Samuels 27 (14b 2x4 2x6)
