Bangladesh v South Africa

Bangladesh won by 67 runs

13.5

Nel to Habibul Bashar, no run, beaten by the pace. Short of lenght, cuts in and thuds into the inner thigh and bounds away to first slip. Boucher didn't get his bat down. Hmm..

13.6

Nel to Habibul Bashar, no run, snorter. Kicks up from short of length, rears up at the throat like cobra, Bashar is surprised but does well to take the bottom-hand out of the handle, arches back to fend it away. Welcome to the crease Mr Bashar.

Bangladesh 42/1   Habibul Bashar 0* (2b)

14.4

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run, on the off and middle, defended on the front foot.

14.5

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run, full and just outside off, Bashar leans forward, dabs it to cover

14.6

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run, beaten. Fullish but this one straightens and Bashar's bat goes inside the line. He wanted to drill that one through the off side ring but was beaten by the straigtening of the delivery.

Bangladesh 47/1   Habibul Bashar 0* (5b)

15.4

Nel to Habibul Bashar, 1 run, length-delivery on the middle and leg, Bashar opens up his stance, tucks it behind square-leg.

16.2

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, (no ball) 2 runs, slower one, but it is short and well outside off, Bashar reaches it and cuts past backward point. Nel rushes across to his right from wide third man to make the stop.

16.2

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run

16.3

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run, beaten. Kicks up from a length outside off, Bashar stays adjacent to the line, feels for it and is beaten.

16.4

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, no run, bumper, Bashar shapes to pull and it bounces over the blade. This is getting interesting. Bashar is losing his patience, he has been out of form. Let's see how he goes about his task. Will he try to hit his way out?

16.5

Langeveldt to Habibul Bashar, 1 run, fullish, outside off, driven to left of mid-off

Bangladesh 55/1   Habibul Bashar 5* (13b)

17.1

Nel to Habibul Bashar, OUT, Super reflex catch. Full in length, on the middle stump line, Bashar drives uppishly to right of Nel who is in the middle of his follow-through. No problem though. He stretches his right hand out and the ball nestles into his palm.

Habibul Bashar c & b Nel 5 (19m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.71

Bangladesh 59/2   Habibul Bashar 5 (14b)
