ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 23rd match, Group F

Bangladesh v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 4 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

2.5

Mohammad Asif to Junaid Siddique, OUT, a direct hit and Tamim has to go! Junaid played the ball towards point and called for the single, Tamim responded but Hafeez quickly swooped down on the ball and threw down the stumps at the batsman's end with Tamim well short

Tamim Iqbal run out 3 (13m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Bangladesh 16/1   Junaid Siddique 8* (11b 1x4)   Mohammad Asif 1.5-0-12-0

9.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, stumped! Aftab charges down the track and has a wild swing over midwicket, Hafeez drags his length a little short and fires in a quick delivery, Aftab misses and Akmal completes an easy stumping

Aftab Ahmed st †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 15 (26m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 88.23

Bangladesh 79/2   Junaid Siddique 51* (36b 6x4 1x6)   Mohammad Hafeez 1.5-0-9-1

10.3

Shahid Afridi to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, flatter, quicker, on the stumps, Ashraful plays around his front pad and fails to make contact. That's always dangerous. Afridi appeals strongly and the finger goes up. That pitched in line and wasn't turning much at all. Can't complain about the decision

Mohammad Ashraful lbw b Shahid Afridi 5 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Bangladesh 84/3   Junaid Siddique 51* (36b 6x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 2.3-0-21-1

11.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, tossed up and on the stumps, Hafeez just holds that one back a touch and Shakib al Hasan is too early on the shot. He closes the face of the bat and the ball loops off the leading edge straight back to the bowler for the simplest of catches

Shakib Al Hasan c & b Mohammad Hafeez 1 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 86/4   Junaid Siddique 51* (38b 6x4 1x6)   Mohammad Hafeez 2.2-0-11-2

14.1

Shoaib Malik to Junaid Siddique, OUT, Another one bites the dust. Down the track and heaved over the infield. That one isn't struck too well, though, and it will just float down the throar of Misbah-ul-Haq in the deep. End of an excellent innings from Junaid in his first game of this tournament

Junaid Siddique c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shoaib Malik 71 (57m 49b 6x4 3x6) SR: 144.89

Bangladesh 112/5   Nadif Chowdhury 6* (6b)   Shoaib Malik 0.1-0-0-1

14.4

Shoaib Malik to Nadif Chowdhury, OUT, short of a good length and outside the off, Nadif Chowdhury goes for the big cut but can only get a thick outside edge on that. Well snapped up by the keeper

Nadif Chowdhury c †Kamran Akmal b Shoaib Malik 12 (14m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Bangladesh 119/6   Mahmudullah 0* (0b)   Shoaib Malik 0.4-0-7-2

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

Bangladesh 122/7   Mashrafe Mortaza 2* (3b)   Umar Gul 1.2-0-8-0

18.1

Mohammad Asif to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, very very very slow from Asif who returns to the attack. That one hangs in the air an eternity before finding the base of leg stump as Mortaza walks far to the off and tries to hit that over leg. That's a bit of a mess for the batsman.

Mashrafe Mortaza b Mohammad Asif 11 (14m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Bangladesh 137/8   Mushfiqur Rahim 4* (7b)   Mohammad Asif 3.1-0-24-1

18.2

Mohammad Asif to Abdur Razzak, OUT, yet another slower ball, on the off, defended back down the pitch. Asif fields in his follow-through and finds Razzaq bounding down the crease. Asif under-arms the ball onto the stumps at the striker's end and that's curtains for Razzaq. Silly way to throw away a wicket

Abdur Razzak run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 137/9   Mushfiqur Rahim 4* (7b)   Mohammad Asif 3.2-0-24-1

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   Mushfiqur Rahim 6* (9b)   Umar Gul 3.4-0-17-1
