0.5

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, no run, Signs of some movement off the seam there. It landed on a length, on the off stump line and moved away a touch, Chanderpaul pushes it to the off side. Will we have a maiden over here?

0.6

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, no run, It is a maiden. Full and outside off, nudged to point. Great start by Bangladesh. HRG informs me that this is the eight instance of a team losing a wicket in the first over in a Twenty20 game

West Indies 0/1   S Chanderpaul 0* (3b)

1.5

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fuller, just outside off stump, Chanderpaul moves towards the line and wrists it past square leg.

West Indies 12/1   S Chanderpaul 11* (7b 1x4 1x6)

2.1

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fullish, outside off stump, not much movement this time, Chanderpaul works it into the gap between point and cover for a single

6.1

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, no run, on a length, outside the off stump, Chanderpaul chops it to point. No run. Rasel is strangling the West Indies here.

6.2

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, no run, Nagging line and length is forcing the batsmen to innovate. Chanders walks right across the sticks and tries to lap a length delivery around the corner but makes no contact and the ball thuds into the pad, outside the off stump.

6.3

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, 1 run, slightly short and width offered outside off stump, cut to deep point

6.6

Syed Rasel to Chanderpaul, 1 run, climbs up from short of length, outside the off stump, chopped away to third man. Rasel has completed his quota of four overs. Nagging and as a result, economical.

West Indies 38/1   S Chanderpaul 15* (17b 1x4 1x6)

7.1

Farhad Reza to Chanderpaul, no run, full and outside the off stump, Chanderpaul shapes to cut and is beaten. He would be better off driving that through covbers

7.2

Farhad Reza to Chanderpaul, SIX, Er ... or just walk across and just lap it over deep square leg. Unorthodox but very effective. It was full in length, around that off stump but Chanderpaul played a cheeky little pick-up stroke

7.3

Farhad Reza to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fuller, on the off stump, driven to long-off

West Indies 45/1   S Chanderpaul 22* (20b 1x4 2x6)

9.1

Farhad Reza to Chanderpaul, 1 leg bye, full-pitched, outside off stump but since this is Twenty20, Chanderpaul reckons he can sweep it , misses it and will pick up a legbye

West Indies 64/1   S Chanderpaul 25* (24b 1x4 2x6)

10.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, FOUR, Dropped by Aftab Ahmed at deep midwicket. Flighted delivery, on the off stump, slog-swept straight to Aftab who makes a mess of it. Palms facing towards the sky, the ball went in and out. What's more runs over the boundary ropes

10.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, 1 run, spins in from outside off, pushed past cover

West Indies 75/1   S Chanderpaul 30* (26b 2x4 2x6)

West Indies 93/1   S Chanderpaul 37* (30b 3x4 2x6)

13.4

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, OUT, Gone! The pressure to up the run-rate does him in. Flighted, too full and Chanderpaul shaped to slog-sweep but the full length meant he could only send it towards long-on.
