Played at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (neutral venue)
13 September 2007 (20-over match)

Syed Rasel to Gayle, OUT, Would you believe it? Gayle has gone for a duck! Slightly short in length, just outside the off stump and Gayle cuts it straight to point. Rasel is overjoyed, so are his team-mates as they mob him. Bangladesh are off to a great start.

CH Gayle c Alok Kapali b Syed Rasel 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 0/1   DS Smith 0* (0b)   Syed Rasel 0.3-0-0-1

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

West Indies 95/2   DS Smith 49* (48b 6x4)   Abdur Razzak 2.4-0-21-1

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

West Indies 104/3   MN Samuels 6* (7b)   Abdur Razzak 3.3-0-23-2

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   RR Sarwan 1* (2b)   Mohammad Ashraful 3-0-31-1

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

West Indies 131/5   RR Sarwan 4* (4b)   Shakib Al Hasan 2.5-0-25-1

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

West Indies 155/6   DR Smith 23* (5b 1x4 3x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 3.1-0-25-2

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

West Indies 157/7   DR Smith 23* (5b 1x4 3x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 3.3-0-27-3

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   DBL Powell 1* (1b)   Shakib Al Hasan 4-0-34-4
