ICC World Twenty20 - 5th match, Group A

Bangladesh v West Indies

Bangladesh won by 6 wickets (with 12 balls remaining)

8.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, 1 run, on the hips, clipped to deep square leg

8.2

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, no run, spins in sharply from outside off, Smith stays back and is surprised at the bounce. It crashed into the rib cage. Good signs if you are a spin bowler

8.3

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, 5 wides, big turn. Landed outside the off stump and spun right across and runs down the leg-side. Wide called. I reckon its a harsh call.

8.3

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, no run, Ah! the straighter one this time and Smith is beaten, playing for spin.

8.4

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, no run

8.5

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, 1 run, another straighter delivery, outside off, Smith stays back to work it to mid-on

8.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, 1 run, turns from outside off, tapped towards cover and they rush across for a quick single

West Indies 61/1   Shakib Al Hasan 1-0-8-0

10.1

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, 1 run, on the middle and leg, worked past square leg for a single

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

10.4

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, 2 runs

10.5

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, FOUR, short in length, outside the off stump, cut through backward point. He loves that shot. He stays on that back foot and jumps at a half-an-opportunity to cut

10.6

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, no run, spins in, turned to midwicket

West Indies 81/1   Shakib Al Hasan 2-0-20-0

17.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Sarwan, 2 runs, comes down the track, reaches the pitch and drives to right of long-on

17.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Sarwan, 1 run, fires it in, Sarwan backs away a touch to get adjacent to the line and drives inside-out to deep cover

17.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Ramdin, no run, full and just outside off stump, Ramdin tries to cut and is beaten

17.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Ramdin, 2 runs, drifts in from round the stumps, driven uppishly over the umpire's head

17.5

Shakib Al Hasan to Ramdin, OUT, Another one goes down. Loopy delivery on the middle stump line, Ramdin opens up his stance and attempts a slog-sweep but ends up skying it straight up in the air and Rahim has all the time in the world to get under it

D Ramdin c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

17.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Sarwan, no run, peach of a delivery. It landed on a length, on the middle stump line and spun sharply past the outside edge.

West Indies 131/5   Shakib Al Hasan 3-0-25-1

19.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Sarwan, OUT, Stumped! He runs down the track, the bowler drags back the length and Sarwan tries to work it to on side but is then, beaten by the turn. Rahim does the rest.

RR Sarwan st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 5 (13m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

19.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Bravo, 2 runs, leans forward to drive past cover. Four balls to go.

19.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Bravo, OUT, Stumped again! Shakib is using those little grey cells. He sees Bravo come down the track, drags back the length and gets it to turn past the intended poke. Quite similar to the Sarwan dismissal.

DJ Bravo st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 2 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

19.4

Shakib Al Hasan to Powell, 1 run, Nagging over continues. Arm-ball, on the off and middle, turned to the off side for a single

19.5

Shakib Al Hasan to DR Smith, SIX, Violent hit over cow corner. Full and around the off and middle stump line, Smith carves it to the left of the deep midwicket region

19.6

Shakib Al Hasan to DR Smith, OUT, Three wickets in the last over. Slightly slower this time and that beats the intended slog sweep.

DR Smith b Shakib Al Hasan 29 (7m 7b 1x4 4x6) SR: 414.28

West Indies 164/8   Shakib Al Hasan 4-0-34-4
