BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Nathan Bracken402025.00101010
2.4 to Tamim Iqbal, Got 'em. Bracken takes the pace off the ball and drops it at a good length. Tamim on his knees and thinking of the slog sweep. Then he realises it's too wide and decides to go with the slap over the bowler's head. Can't get the timing yet again and only manages a tame catch to Brad Hogg at mid-off. One down.. 4/1
21.1 to Habibul Bashar, Another slower ball does the trick. Bracken rolls his fingers over that one and drops it slightly short outside off. Basher pulls it feebly but can't beat Ricky Ponting at short midwicket. Easily done.. 97/6
Glenn McGrath501633.20212010
3.3 to Shahriar Nafees, Touche! 132.3mph. That's No.55 for GD McGrath, equalling Wasim Akram's record for the most World Cup dismissals. Yorker homing in on middle stump. Too quick for Shahriar and was nailed all ends up. Plays all over it and loses his off stump. GD McGrath, take a bow!. 8/2
5.3 to Aftab Ahmed, Catch! You beauty! Back of a length on off, Aftab down the track and tries to drive over mid-off but can't get the timing. Just like Tamim. It appears to have the elevation to beat mid-off but, Oh, look who's there. Nathan Bracken times his jump perfectly and latches on to the ball while in mid-air. You specy! McGrath becomes the highest wicket-taker in World Cups. Take a bow, again.. 25/3
7.5 to Mohammad Ashraful, Goodbye Mr Ashraful. Slow delivery from the master. Good length on off and tempting, very tempting. Ashraful makes room again and tries to clear mid-on but is deceived by the pace. Ball soars high in the air, Ponting back-peddles and takes a well-judged catch. McGrath's spell reads 3.5-0-9-3. Bread and butter for Pidge. 37/4
Shaun Tait402817.00121140
16.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, Nailed 'em. Wide and full of off stump, 90mph. Saqib goes for the drive but can only get a thick edge. Easy take by Gilchrist behind the stumps. Not Tait's best delivery today but as it happens, produces a wicket. He's come back well in the second spell.. 65/5
