Mashrafe Mortaza1013103.10380011
Shahadat Hossain604237.00163002
49.3 to CL White, that the end of Cameron White. Tries to steer it to third man exposing his stumps and the ball crashes into off stump. 252/6
49.4 to MG Johnson, banged in short and Johnson's pull gets a top edge which balloons for a simple catch for the bowler. 252/7
49.6 to MEK Hussey, three wickets in four balls for Shahadat! short of a length, Hussey advances down the pitch and tries to scoop it over cover but fails to connect and that hits his off stump. 254/8
Nazmul Hossain1015515.50316100
11.5 to JR Hopes, Bangladesh strike, very poor stroke by Hopes, he tries to pull a short delivery but gets very early on the stroke, the top edge is taken easily by Mehrab at short midwicket, Hopes makes his way back as soon as he skies the ball, he's crossed with himself. 56/1
Shakib Al Hasan1004624.60302100
18.6 to MJ Clarke, Clarke gets a little cheeky with the cut and pays the price, Shakib doesn't give him enough room to work with outside off and the ball skids through quickly, he tries to dab it down to third man, takes the outside edge and there was no doubt in the umpire's (Saheba) mind that he edged it. 76/2
42.3 to DJ Hussey, fired in towards leg, David Hussey backs away from the stumps, tries to clear extra cover but only manages to find Mortaza, who makes up for his lapse in the Shakib's previous over. 201/4
Abdur Razzak1004414.40261020
35.6 to SE Marsh, a loss of concentration by Marsh, the ball lands outside off and turns in, he's a little late in getting his bat behind the line and the inside edge rolls onto the stumps. 161/3
Alok Kapali402817.0062010
45.3 to BJ Haddin, Haddin goes and the gamble to bring on the legspinner has worked. Haddin's bowled by a quicker delivery which beats his attempted loft. That hits the middle of middle. 208/5

Nathan Bracken612303.83263000
Stuart Clark711812.57321040
3.2 to Mehrab Hossain jnr, Mehrab's gone! LBW. After feeding him a series of bouncers in the previous over, Clark pitches this one up and gets it to swing in to the left-hand batsman, raps his pads and he's gone. 12/1
Mitchell Johnson611021.66270010
8.1 to Tamim Iqbal, Tamim falls, holing out to third man, that was short of a length but there wasn't enough room to cut. Tamim went for the cut anyway, but didn't get hold of it and Brett Geeves takes a fine catch at third man. 28/2
10.2 to Mohammad Ashraful, plumb in front and Bangladesh sink deeper, Johnson bangs it in back of a length and Ashraful eyes the deep square leg boundary, unfortunately he misjudges the lower bounce and is trapped right in front of middle, Peter Parker raises the finger, Ashraful was right in going for the pull but he played too early. 33/3
Michael Clarke20713.5081000
13.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, he had it coming, Shakib steps down the track to cart Clarke over long-on but makes a mess of a low full toss, he turns the face of the bat too early and the leading edge lobs to Stuart Clark at mid-off. 44/4
Brett Geeves501122.20241000
22.1 to Dhiman Ghosh, First wicket in international cricket for Brett Geeves. Shortish delivery but excellent line just outside off and Dhiman Ghosh fishes at it giving Haddin a simple catch. 63/6
24.4 to Raqibul Hasan, Another wicket for Geeves. Short and lifting towards Raqibul's helmet. He tries to fend it off, it takes the shoulder of the bat and flies to David Hussey at second slip. 68/7
Cameron White1.40533.0060000
25.6 to Abdur Razzak, Bangladesh are unravelling fast here. Razzak closed the face too soon as he tried to flick him to leg and the ball pops up for a simple caught and bowled. 72/8
27.2 to Nazmul Hossain, Another wicket for White. Tossed up on a good length outside off, Nazmul goes for the drive and gets the outside edge giving a regulation catch to Michael Clarke. 74/9
27.4 to Shahadat Hossain, White gets three as Bangladesh slump to their lowest score ever. Shortish delivery outside off, tried to cut it, gets the bottom edge, ricochets off Haddin's thigh and Clarke dives forward from first slip to snaffle it inches from the ground and seal the win. 74/10
