ICC World Twenty20 - 5th match, Group A

Bangladesh v West Indies

Bangladesh won by 6 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)

1.1

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, 1 run, full and outside off, dabbed past point

1.2

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, FOUR, full and outside off, Chanderpaul bends his back knee and attempts a square drive but gets a thick edge through to the third man boundary

1.3

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, no run, on a length, outside off stump, Chanderpaul reaches out and taps it to short third man

1.4

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, SIX, we have the first six of the day. Flighted on the off and middle, Chanderpaul leaned forward and swept it high and hard over long leg

1.5

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

1.6

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, no run, short in length, a tad quicker, outside off, cut straight to point. There was an opportunity for a four there but he didn't get his placement right. Will Bangladesh persist with this spin attack?

West Indies 12/1   Abdur Razzak 1-0-12-0

11.1

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, FOUR, short again, outside the off stump and Chanderpaul doesn't let the opportunity go; rocks back to cut it past point. Easy pickings.

11.2

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fuller, driven to long-off

11.3

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, no run, flatter and quicker, short in length, outside off stump, Smith shapes to pull but is beaten for pace

11.4

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, 1 run, another cut shot, will get a single.

11.5

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fullish, on the off stump, driven to long-on

11.6

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, 1 run, delivered from the front of the hand, fullish and faster, on the middle stump line, turned to square leg

West Indies 89/1   Abdur Razzak 2-0-20-0

13.1

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, no run, from wide of the crease, spins in quickly from outside off stump, Smith tries to tickle to the on side, misses and it thuds into the pad

13.2

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, no run, and again. Good stuff from Razzak

13.3

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, 1 run, fuller, on the middle and off, driven through mid-on

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.

S Chanderpaul c Mashrafe Mortaza b Abdur Razzak 37 (54m 31b 3x4 2x6) SR: 119.35

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   Abdur Razzak 3-0-22-1

15.1

15.2

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

15.3

Abdur Razzak to DS Smith, OUT, gets his man with a quicker one. Clever. He saw Smith charging down the track and sent down a quicker one, full as well and it yorked Smith. Clean bowled.

DS Smith b Abdur Razzak 51 (66m 52b 6x4 0x6) SR: 98.07

15.4

Abdur Razzak to Sarwan, no run, drifting on to the legs, turned to short fine leg
