ICC World Twenty20 - 14th match, Group F

Australia v Bangladesh

Australia won by 9 wickets (with 37 balls remaining)

2.3

Lee to Nazimuddin, FOUR, between slip and keeper, Nazimuddin shapes for the cut, not much bounce on that as the ball gets the under-edge of the bat and rolls away quickly behind the bat

Bangladesh 10/0   Nazimuddin 5* (5b 1x4)   B Lee 1.3-0-7-0

2.6

Lee to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, good length on leg stump, Tamim flicks off his hips and beats the fielder at square leg, lightening fast outfield carries it to the boundary

Bangladesh 16/0   Tamim Iqbal 8* (11b 1x4)   B Lee 2-0-13-0

4.4

Johnson to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, fine leg comes up and Tamim glances it uppishly off his pads, controlled stroke in the end as the ball beats all the fielders

Bangladesh 24/0   Tamim Iqbal 15* (18b 2x4)   MG Johnson 0.4-0-6-0

5.5

Clark to Nazimuddin, FOUR, breaks the shackles, full and wide, Nazimuddin gives room and slices it over point and cover, a couple of bounces and four

Bangladesh 31/0   Nazimuddin 11* (13b 2x4)   SR Clark 1.5-0-8-0

6.1

Johnson to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, edged! short of a length outside off, Tamim stays at the crease, glances it past Gilchrist, first slip would have gobbled it up but there's no protection for that

Bangladesh 35/0   Tamim Iqbal 21* (24b 3x4)   MG Johnson 1.1-0-11-0

11.3

Bracken to Aftab Ahmed, FOUR, Aftab leans across and paddles one from leg stump past Gilchrist who is standing up to the stumps, the ball runs to the fine-leg boundary

Bangladesh 72/2   Aftab Ahmed 13* (14b 1x4)   NW Bracken 1.3-0-9-0

12.2

Johnson to Mohammad Ashraful, FOUR, full ball outside off stump, Ashraful latches on to the loose offering and drives the ball over point for four

Bangladesh 79/2   Mohammad Ashraful 5* (2b 1x4)   MG Johnson 2.2-0-20-1

15.4

Clarke to Shakib Al Hasan, FOUR, Shakib once again targets the deep midwicket region and connects superbly with the slog sweep, the ball bounces once before reaching the boundary

Bangladesh 103/3   Shakib Al Hasan 16* (8b 1x4 1x6)   MJ Clarke 2.4-0-28-1

16.1

Lee to Aftab Ahmed, FOUR, Aftab moves towards leg and lofts Lee's full delivery cleanly over extra cover, the outfield is slow and the ball just about reaches the boundary

Bangladesh 107/3   Aftab Ahmed 25* (27b 2x4)   B Lee 2.1-0-17-0
