Nathan Bracken511623.20221020
0.1 to Tamim Iqbal, that didn't take too long! Bracken gets cracking swing straightaway, it first angles into Tamim, that draws him forward but the ball suddenly swerves the other way and a helpless Tamim forces an edge down to David Hussey at second slip who falls to his right. 0/1
4.1 to Mehrab Hossain jnr, Bracken strikes again and this time Michael Hussey assists him, he pitches it up outside off and gets it to angle away from the left hander, Mehrab pays the price for a half-hearted prod and the ball takes the thick outside edge and runs to Hussey at third slip who dives to his left for the catch. 9/2
Stuart Clark701622.28301010
5.4 to Mohammad Ashraful, Ashraful falls for the bait and an all too easy wicket for Clark, he bowls it full and wide outside off and invites the square drive, Ashraful looks to smack that but the ball clips the top of the bat and flies to White at first slip. 15/3
31.2 to Dhiman Ghosh, he goes for broke straight down the ground but makes a mess of it, he stays rooted to the crease as he faces up a full delivery from Clark, the top edge travels to Watson at mid-off who pedals backwards to take the catch, terrible shot and Ghosh will regret it. 104/8
James Hopes721612.28331010
19.5 to Alok Kapali, very very soft dismissal, Kapali decides to take the aerial route this time but fails to execute it properly as he tamely chips a full delivery down to Watson at mid-off who's standing well forward from the conventional position, Bangladesh just can't get sizable partnerships going. 59/6
Mitchell Johnson6.101732.75292020
16.5 to Junaid Siddique, Junaid loses his concentration, Johnson delivers that back of a length and the ball kicks up and holds its line, he fails to withdraw his bat on time and the thick edge is taken by Haddin. 53/4
18.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, hits a good length on middle and off, the ball swings in quite sharply with the angle and Shakib tries to whip it across the line, the ball hits the back pad and umpire Oxenford thinks for a while before raising the finger. You can argue that the ball may have missed leg stump but Shakib moved across a bit too much. 57/5
36.1 to Mashrafe Mortaza, terrific delivery from Johnson and that would have claimed even the best batsman, angles it into the right hander and lands it back of a length, the ball then moves away from Mortaza after pitching and all he can do is tamely edge it to Haddin. 117/10
Cameron White703925.57202130
26.6 to Abdur Razzak, attempts a leg break and Razzak expects it to turn, the ball however goes through straight and Razzak can't get behind the line to defend, the outside edge lobs to Clarke at first slip. 85/7
32.2 to Nazmul Hossain, all squared up by the googly, White mixes it up well, pitches outside off and cuts back in sharply, catches Nazmul on the back foot, that was fairly plumb in front. 106/9

Shakib Al Hasan6.403825.70223100
12.5 to SR Watson, Bangladesh have something to smile about, Shakib pushes that flatter and faster, lands on middle and leg, Watson commits a little too early to the sweep and the ball hits him in front of middle stump. 73/1
14.2 to MJ Clarke, a few more smiles for the men in green, Clarke suddenly has a rush of blood and gives him the charge, he's beaten in flight and fails to drag his foot back before Ghosh effects the stumping. 79/2
