ICC World Twenty20 - 11th match, Group A

Australia v Bangladesh

Australia won by 27 runs

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

Australia 16/1   DA Warner 11* (6b 1x4 1x6)   Mashrafe Mortaza 1.1-0-2-1

3.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Warner, OUT, and he gets his second ball! Warner does not play spin very well, and the previous ball sowed some seeds of doubt in his head, possibly. He was down the track this time, did not get to the pitch as it turned into him and still went with the loft over midwicket. He did not time it too well and the catch was taken well by the fielder running in

DA Warner c Aftab Ahmed b Shakib Al Hasan 16 (17m 11b 2x4 1x6) SR: 145.45

Australia 21/2   MJ Clarke 0* (2b)   Shakib Al Hasan 0.2-0-0-1

6.3

Abdur Razzak to Haddin, OUT, gotcha! Do we have an upset brewing here! Haddin plays an airy-fairy lofted sweep over square leg, just that he was no where near the pitch of the ball and ended up top-edging a dolly to short third man

BJ Haddin c Shafiul Islam b Abdur Razzak 6 (9m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 37/3   MJ Clarke 9* (12b 1x6)   Abdur Razzak 1.3-0-5-1

9.4

Mohammad Ashraful to Clarke, OUT, the skipper is gone! Australia are stuttering here, and Clarke's played an unnecessary shot to give his wicket away. Pitched up on off stump, Clarke was out of his crease and looked to loft it over long off, but did not hit it well enough to clear the ropes. It went straight to the fielder in the outfield

MJ Clarke c Jahurul Islam b Mohammad Ashraful 16 (27m 21b 0x4 1x6) SR: 76.19

Australia 52/4   DJ Hussey 7* (10b)   Mohammad Ashraful 1.4-0-9-1

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

Australia 57/5   CL White 3* (4b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 2.5-0-10-2

12.5

Shakib Al Hasan to White, OUT, See you later Mr. White! Lovely bit of left-arm spin bowling from Shakib, White tried to double guess him by moving to the leg side, Shakib stuck to his guns and bowled the stock ball on leg and middle, it turned away and beat White's attempted prod to crash into the furniture!

CL White b Shakib Al Hasan 8 (11m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Australia 65/6   MEK Hussey 3* (5b)   Shakib Al Hasan 2.5-0-12-2

19.6

Shafiul Islam to MEK Hussey, 1 wide, OUT, Smith is run out. That was very wide outside off and Hussey could not connect as he stretched out. Smith was eager to run across and nearly made his ground, but Rahim's under-arm got him just short of the crease. Great innings from Smith

SPD Smith run out 27 (29m 18b 1x4 2x6) SR: 150.00

Australia 139/7   MEK Hussey 47* (29b 4x4 1x6)   Shafiul Islam 3.5-0-32-0
