Australia 2/0   Mashrafe Mortaza 1-0-2-0

2.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Watson, OUT, Watto's gotta go! Mashrafe bowled a great first over, and now gets his reward with a very well-directed bouncer. That was fast and directed at Watto's body, he was hustled into the pull and was quite late on it. The top edge went high and when it came down, it landed in the hands of Aftab Ahmed who took a good tumbling catch.

SR Watson c Aftab Ahmed b Mashrafe Mortaza 4 (10m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

2.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Warner, no run, great lines from Mortaza, short of a length, pushing Warner back as it angles across, defends off the back foot, without having any room to play an aggressove shot

2.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Warner, FOUR, this time, he gives him an inch, and Warner makes a yard out of it. Just outside off, and cut away with fierce power and perfect placement through the covers

2.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Warner, 1 run, cross batted hard to mid on, where it is fielded well, tumbling to the right

2.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Clarke, no run, case of ball hitting the bat! Good signs for the tournament, this pitch is nice and quick. mashrafe bangs it in short of a length and Clarke hangs back and defends to the off side

2.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Clarke, no run, good finish to the over, short of a length again with a little shape away from Clarke and good carry. The Aussie captain makes the right decision - do nothing

Australia 21/1   Mashrafe Mortaza 2-0-7-1

10.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to White, 1 run, played away to the covers for a single

10.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to DJ Hussey, 1 run, length ball on off stump, guided off the back foot in front of point for one

10.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to White, no run, short of a length outside off, punched off the backfoot to cover

10.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to White, 1 run, it's all happening! Played softly off the backfoot straight to point, and Hussey hustles across for a quick single as the fielder swoops in and under-arms a throw that misses. He would have been in, in any case

10.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to DJ Hussey, OUT, Australia have lost half their side! Another well-directed bouncer from Mortaza, hurrying Hussey into the pull shot, the top edge balloons behind square on the leg side, Mushfiqur runs across and takes it with the big gloves. Game on folks!

DJ Hussey c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mashrafe Mortaza 9 (15m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

10.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to White, 1 run, short ball again, gets good lift to push the batsman back and he fends it to the legside

Australia 58/5   Mashrafe Mortaza 3-0-11-2

16.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, SIX, Incredible timing! Full toss on leg stump, but they still have to be out away. Hussey stood his ground and flicked it nonchalantly over square leg for a six

16.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, 1 run, works this one behind square for a single. Hussey is playing a wonderful hand here

16.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Smith, 1 run, ah, he misses out with the paddle sweep. Times it well from the leg stump line, but it goes straight to the only fielder in that region, inside the circle

16.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, FOUR, Mashrafe is losing the plot after a fine spell until now. This one again is on leg stump, as all the previous balls this over, with fine leg in the circle. Hussey says thank you very much mate and redirects the ball behind square leg

16.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, FOUR, expertly played! Finally Ashrafe gets it outside off, but there was enough room for Hussey to make a measured surgical cut to send it scurrying fine to the third man fence

16.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to MEK Hussey, 1 run, cuts it away hard straight to cover for a single. Great over for Aus.

Australia 106/6   Mashrafe Mortaza 4-0-28-2
