ICC World Twenty20 - 23rd match, Group F

Bangladesh v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 4 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

13.1

Umar Gul to Junaid Siddique, 1 run, low full-toss on the stumps, swatted away to the leg side as Umar Gul begins his spell

13.2

Umar Gul to Nadif Chowdhury, 1 run, another one that is fairly straight and not express, worked away to the on side

13.3

Umar Gul to Junaid Siddique, 1 run, just short of a good length and on the pads, awkward pull played. The ball bobs up towards the on side

13.4

Umar Gul to Nadif Chowdhury, 1 run, full and straight, Gul striving for the yorker, a bit of late swing, defended towards the off side. Not much the batsman can do with that one

13.5

Umar Gul to Junaid Siddique, 1 run, another one that's full and straight, clipped down to fine-leg for another single

13.6

Umar Gul to Nadif Chowdhury, 2 runs, fullish and outside the off, driven well through cover but there's a fielder on the ropes

Bangladesh 112/4   Umar Gul 1-0-7-0

15.1

Umar Gul to Mahmudullah, 1 run, short one dug in on the off stump, Mortaza goes back and defends the ball to leg

15.2

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, very full and on the stumps, attempted yorker from Gul. It's well dug out by Mashrafe Mortaza. Mahmudullah wants the single and sprints down the pitch. Unfortunately the ball deflects of Mahmudullah and goes straight to Gul. Gul picks up and throws down the stumps and that's another wicket gone

Mahmudullah run out 1 (5m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

15.3

Umar Gul to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, very full and on the stumps, prised out to the on side

15.4

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, no run, short of a good length and outside the off, good pace on this, flashy cut played and missed

15.5

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, no run, full and straight again, played defensively to the leg side

15.6

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, 1 run, very full and on the stumps, the batsman goes a bit to leg and opens the face of the bat to run the ball to the off side

Bangladesh 124/7   Umar Gul 2-0-10-0

17.1

Umar Gul to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short of a good length, once again decent pace, Gul doing well here, played at and missed, through to the keeper

17.2

Umar Gul to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, full and straight, just a hint of inswing, Gul striving for the yorker, driven to the off side

17.3

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, 1 leg bye, Mortaza walks to off then backs to leg, trying to make some room for himself. Gul follows the batsman really well and bangs it in short, nailing Mortaza on the helmet. That is a superb bit of bowling.

17.4

Umar Gul to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, full and outside the off, squeezed down to third-man

17.5

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, (no ball) 2 runs, No-ball and it's hit well through cover too. Half stop from the fielder makes sure it doesn't go away to the boundary. Free hit coming up.

17.5

Umar Gul to Mashrafe Mortaza, 1 run, full and straight, Gul again aiming for the yorker, Mortaza back s away to leg and hits through cover

17.6

Umar Gul to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short one banged in, slipping down leg, ducked under. Gul lucky that wasn't called wide

Bangladesh 137/7   Umar Gul 3-0-16-0

19.1

Umar Gul to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 run, short of a length and outside the off, slashed quite agriculturally at, the ball balloons down towards long off

19.2

Umar Gul to Syed Rasel, no run, slightly quicker, outside the off, the ball skids through as the batsman has a swing and misses quite comfortably

19.3

Umar Gul to Syed Rasel, no run, very full and on the stumps. All the batsman can do is jam the bat down and defend to the keeper

19.4

Umar Gul to Syed Rasel, OUT, searing yorker on the middle stump. Syed Rasel has very little idea about that one and plays a booming shot nowhere near the vicinity of the ball. The middle stump is disturbed and that's the end of the Bangladesh innings

Syed Rasel b Umar Gul 1 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Bangladesh 140/10   Umar Gul 3.4-0-17-1
