ICC World Twenty20 - 11th match, Group A
Australia won by 27 runs
Played at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados (neutral venue)
5 May 2010 (20-over match)

Tait to Imrul Kayes, OUT, expertly done by Tait! After feeding him with thunderbolts at great pace, he slyly slips in the slower one, Kayes is unable to spot it and plays the straight drive very early, it tamely lobs up for mid on to run across and snaffle it.

Imrul Kayes c DJ Hussey b Tait 0 (2m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 4/1   Mohammad Ashraful 0* (0b)   SW Tait 1-1-0-1

Nannes to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, taken! Great catch from Tait at third man. Ashraful played it well actually, angling the bat and looking to play the short ball down to third man, but timed it too well. It carried to the deep, and Tait ran across to take a nice tumbling catch inches off the turf. Well, you can forget all the run rate calculations unless Bangladesh make a fist of this chase

Mohammad Ashraful c Tait b Nannes 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 4/2   Aftab Ahmed 0* (0b)   DP Nannes 0.3-0-0-1

Nannes to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, well, this is not helping Bangladesh's cause at all. A nothing shot from Aftab against some very high quality fast bowling, he is down the track again, without much conviction. Nannes pitches it short of a length, and Aftab swishes the bat in clumsy fashion as it angles across, and gets a top edge that is taken easily

Aftab Ahmed c Warner b Nannes 1 (12m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Bangladesh 13/3   Shakib Al Hasan 6* (8b)   DP Nannes 1.2-0-3-2

Nannes to Mahmudullah, OUT, Bangladesh are getting outclassed here by some wonderful fast bowling! Short of a length again, hustling the batsman into a false stroke, this time Mahmudullah goes for an unconvincing pull off a ball that was not short enough. It took the top edge again for a dolly to square leg inside the circle

Mahmudullah c MEK Hussey b Nannes 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Bangladesh 15/4   Shakib Al Hasan 6* (8b)   DP Nannes 1.5-0-5-3

Smith to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, Mr. Cricket earns his side a big wicket! Pitched up and Shakib swings it away high behind square, but there was a hint of top edge as it looped towards deep square leg. Hussey initially misjudged it and ran too far inside, but reassessed in time, to back-pedal and dive full stretch to his back and pluck it a few metres inside the ropes!

Shakib Al Hasan c MEK Hussey b Smith 28 (35m 28b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Bangladesh 63/5   Mushfiqur Rahim 24* (21b 2x4 1x6)   SPD Smith 1.4-0-9-1

DJ Hussey to Naeem Islam, OUT, another one bites the dust! Bangladesh are crumbling here! Naeem went for that slog swing over long on, but the timing was average this time and it was a comfortable take for long on running to his right

Naeem Islam c Smith b DJ Hussey 7 (2m 6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 116.66

Bangladesh 70/6   Mushfiqur Rahim 24* (21b 2x4 1x6)   DJ Hussey 0.4-0-6-1

DJ Hussey to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Bangladesh are dying by the sword here. Rahim tries the slog sweep yet again, and gets the top edge, it swirls high and straight down the throat of Hussey senior at long leg

Mushfiqur Rahim c MEK Hussey b DJ Hussey 24 (31m 25b 2x4 1x6) SR: 96.00

Bangladesh 81/7   Jahurul Islam 10* (6b 1x6)   DJ Hussey 1.2-0-6-2

Smith to Shafiul Islam, OUT, and he gets his man this time! Shafiul looks to charge Smith again, who sticks to his guns and keeps it relatively full. Shafiul does not get to the pitch and inside edges it on to the wood work

Shafiul Islam b Smith 16 (7m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 123.07

Bangladesh 100/8   Jahurul Islam 13* (9b 1x6)   SPD Smith 4-0-29-2

Nannes to Jahurul Islam, OUT, The old fat lady is clearing her throat. You can slog big Dirk away once or twice, but he is eventually going to get you. Short of a length outside off and the batsman backs away again looking for the swipe over the off side, it takes the top edge and swirls up for a simple catch for the fielder inside the circle at cover

Jahurul Islam c Clarke b Nannes 18 (17m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Bangladesh 106/9   Mashrafe Mortaza 1* (2b)   DP Nannes 3.5-0-14-4

Harris to Mashrafe Mortaza, OUT, And it is all over! Full and straight on the stumps, Mortaza tries to be cheeky and gets across, trying to shovel it fine on the leg side, but makes no contact. Stumps are down, Bangladesh are finished, Pakistan and Australia are through to the next round.

Mashrafe Mortaza b Harris 6 (10m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Bangladesh 114/10   Abdur Razzak 3* (8b)   RJ Harris 3.4-0-28-1
