All|Overs 1-50
4

to Hales, FOUR, wasn't quite in control. The ball went squarer than he would have liked. Sliced over covers but clears the infield comfortably. Just the slight width on offer and see how Hales lashes onto it, deliberately or not

W

to Roy, out Caught by Mustafizur!! Now, Roy's bad form continues. So he had shuffled across to shape for the scoop, and gets a cutter instead. Miscues it off the inside edge, and could have evaded short fine leg, until Fizz decided to lumber across to his right and time his jump. Nail his jump. What a catch, reverse-cupped over his head, and what a strike for Bangladesh. Roy c Mustafizur b 1(8)

4

to Root, FOUR, that's calming. Gets his front leg across to cover the flight and indrift, and caresses a drive through covers

4

to Hales, FOUR, plays it just a touch late and mounts his shot through mid-wicket. Straight on the stumps and Hales is right on top of this clip. Times it so well

4

to Hales, FOUR, and he follows it up with a cutter. Off-cutter. Spins away to give more room and is slapped through point. What a waste of a moment

4

to Hales, FOUR, shot. Murders a full ball, going with the drift, and bottom-hands a whip through mid-wicket. Goes over the man

4

to Hales, FOUR, long-on ran all the way across and dives at long-off, but couldn't quite. Tamim was the fielder. And this shot, wasn't quite timed. Hales was early, half-chipping it straight down the ground. No long-off but long-on did very well there, especially with a hundred on his back today

4

to Hales, FOUR, drags the length slightly back, and this was angled a touch further across. Punched through point this one, with a 45-degree bat. Well played

4

Sarkar to Root, FOUR, continues from over the wicket and is plundered through mid-wicket. Root allows the ball to come on and just about times it away. Minimal effort

4

Sarkar to Root, FOUR, some bat on it? Yes. Only just. Drifting down and Root doctors an inside edge on this leg-glance

4

to Hales, FOUR, just a single denied and how he responds, steps down and hoicks the length ball over mid-wicket. One bounce and over the ropes to bring his fifty (9th)

4

to Root, FOUR, once again he tries to put some extra pace does and pays the price. Ended up on the legs of Root. Easy pickings for him, gets across and bisects mid-wicket and mid-on with the flick

4

to Hales, FOUR, almost no room to play the cut but there's pace and Hales makes use of that. Played it late as well, into the ground, making it bounce over the leaping point fielder

OT

Hossain to Hales, 1 run, fullish in nature, worked with the turn to deep mid-wicket

4

to Hales, FOUR, relatively fuller and Hales helps this one with a beautifully placed sweep shot through backward square leg. These boundaries never allow the required rate to go up

6

to Hales, SIX, out of nowhere this has come. But has gone deep into the stands over long-off. Danced down and hit it with the turn, might have sliced a bit but there is enough wood on that. Huge hit

OT

to Root, 2 runs, goes back to follow the path of the ball, works through the on-side and comes back for the second run. Another half-ton for Root. Usual sight in cricket these days

4

to Hales, FOUR, slower ball? Looked like one. Hales dances down the track and goes a touch inside-out to lift over extra cover. A couple of bounces and into the fence

4

Rahman to Hale, FOUR, long-hop and Hale ee it well and early. Rock back and pull fairly traight toward widih long-on

6

Rahman to Hale, IX, Wow! Logically there i nothing right with thi hot but the wing help him. He i going againt the turn, not near the pitch. But keep hi head teady and wing o well over the long-on fence

W

Rahman to Hale, out Caught by (ub)unzamul Ilam!! Hale could not handle the ruh of blood. Having cored a couple of big hot, there wa no need for thi one. Certainly not when the chae i on track and you are on 95 but modern day Englih cricket foil tradition. Goe for the log weep, doe not get enough bat on it. Micue to the fielder at deep mid-wicket who wa ruhing to the ball and looked in a bit of trouble but held on even a he tumbled on to the turf. The wicket that Bangladeh needed, the wicket thi game needed. Hale c (ub)unzamul Ilam b Rahman 95(86) [4-11 6-2]

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, Bangladesh need to realize that only wickets can win them this game. There is a new man in but they have not got a slip for him and that is exactly where this edge goes to. Eoin Morgan's mere push is not off the middle and rolls past the keeper into the third man fence

4

Hossain to Root, FOUR, no man at deep cover? It skids on from a length on off. Root goes back and punches square on the off-side. No one in the frame there so I would assume that was left open intentionally

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, pulled handsomely. Was not too short but Eoin Morgan shifted his weight almost immediately and pulled wide of mid-on, who might have got his fingertips to that. Not good enough on the day

4

Hossain to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, the mistimed pull falls just inside the boundary. The short ball held up a bit and took the top edge but there was no one patrolling the fence. Eoin Morgan has a smile on his face

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, does not quite get it where he intended it but he won't mind. Did a bit of dancing in the crease before swinging ferociously at it, got off the inside half of the bat and found the gap through backward square leg

OT

to Eoin Morgan, 1 run, to the same fielder again. A similar shot and this time Root was gone on a direct hit. But as luck would have it, Soumya Sarkar did not hit the target this time. Not that he did not try

4

to Root, FOUR, and he celebrates moving into 90s with a delicious cover drive. Gets his head on top of the ball and leans into the drive, finds the gap through cover as well. The man trying to run across in the deep left it early

6

to Eoin Morgan, SIX, that's one of the biggest we have seen today. Nimbles down and muscles it over the long-on fence. Got underneath this one with ease. 96 metre hit

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, this is playing to the field at its best. Deep extra is left open and Eoin Morgan shapes back to slap it through that region. Races to the fence in no time

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, another half century for Eoin Morgan. Acknowledges the applause from the crowd and the dressing room. Sliced the cutter wide of backward point to get to the milestone

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, did not look intentional but gets four in the end. Was pretty close to him and he wanted to cut, got a thick edge past the keeper. Wide of the man at short third man as well. Back to back fours for him

OT

to Root, 2 runs, everything is normal with the world. Root has another ton. The helmet is off, the bat is raised. The number swells up to 10 now in ODIs. Was a normal pace delivery as per 's standards - a 125 kph. Root flicked behind square on the on-side for a couple to get there

6

to Root, SIX, teeing off exactly like a golfer. Was in his arc and he muscled it. For a moment it looked as if he would hole out to long-on but went well above him into the stands

4

to Root, FOUR, another full toss and Root whips it away. Just falls inside the ropes at deep mid-wicket. Such precision as far as finding the gap is concerned

6

to Eoin Morgan, SIX, did not get underneath this one but manages to hit towards the shortest area in the ground. Was a fuller ball and saw himself get muscled over the cow corner

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, and now misses the yorker. Ends up gifting a full toss to Eoin Morgan who cracks it to the deep extra cover fence

4

to Root, FOUR, take that! How beautifully he stayed leg-side to allow himself some space on the drive. Did not move his feet much but such gifted hands he has; the sweeper had only a few yards to move to his right but the ball beat him to the fence with ease

4

to Root, FOUR, and what he does with the line of his bowling? Throws it well outside off to allow Root to carve it over extra cover. Once again the man at sweeper can only run and do nothing

4

Hossain to Root, FOUR, Root skips down and goes big, just about clears the fence at deep mid-wicket. Two needed now. His highest score in ODIs. This is Joe Root's highest ODI score. His previous best was 125 against South Africa at Centurion in Feb 2016

4

Hossain to Root, FOUR, and now the sloggish swing that clears the deep mid-wicket fence on the bounce. England start their CT campaign with an emphatic 8-wicket win

4

Ball to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, first boundary of #CT17, a uicy half-volley from Ball, on Soumya's pads, he gets inside the line and clips it past square leg, the fielder at long leg can't get across to it

4

Ball to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries, full and wide of off, Soumya gets a big stride forward and drills it past extra-cover, beats the diving fielder and rolls away to the fence in a hurry

OT

Wood to Soumya Sarkar, 1 run, a direct hit might have had Tamim struggling. Bairstow had one stump to aim at and missed, Tamim might have been short had there been a direct hit. Coming to the ball, this was short and on Soumya's hips, hurried him on the shot, he pops it towards square leg and responds to his partner's call, Tamim slid but that wouldn't have been enough

4

Wood to Tamim, FOUR, top-edge and four, might have come off his gloves, but the extra pace and bounce of Wood has gone against him here. Tamim was very late on the pull, gloves it and has enough to lob the leaping keeper, first boundary for Tamim - but in a very streaky manner

D

Ball to Soumya Sarkar, no run, that's a chance and Moeen has dropped a sitter. He had it for a moment, might have slipped out of his hands as he looked to throw it in the air. A 'Herschelle Gibbs moment', chirps Nasser Hussain on air. Length delivery on his pads, Soumya clipped it uppishly and straight to square leg. In and out - all in a flash

4

Wood to Tamim, FOUR, lovely shot, tad overpitched and just outside off, Tamim leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and drives it back past the non-striker, no need to run for those

4

Ball to Tamim, FOUR, that's easy pickings for Tamim, short and angling into his pads, he gets inside the line and helps it on its way, beats the dive from Bairstow at long leg

4

Wood to Tamim, FOUR, cracking shot, another bouncer from Wood, this didn't have the venom behind it. Tamim swivels across and pulls it over square leg, a couple of bounces and over the ropes

6

Ball to Soumya Sarkar, SIX, lovely, Soumya is looking to play some shots now, shimmies down the track, doesn't get too close to the ball. That allows him to free his arms and lifts it disdainfully over mid-on, has enough power to clear the fence for the first six of #CT17

4

Ball to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, this is excellent batting from Soumya, width on offer from Ball, the length isn't too full either - allows Soumya to drive it on the up and clatter it past point, no need to run for those

4

Ball to Soumya Sarkar, FOUR, lovely shot, hint of width outside off, Soumya latches onto it, drives it on the up and beats the man at cover. Expensive over from Ball, 16 runs from the over

W

to Soumya Sarkar, out Caught by (sub)Bairstow!! passed a fitness test this morning and he has a wicket in his first over. This was short and wide outside off, was there for the cut. Soumya was looking to carve it over cover, hits it a lot straighter and to the man placed in the deep. It's Bairstow out there and he doesn't drop those. Soumya started in a tentative fashion, started looking good and falls just when he was opening up. England needed this wicket badly, they seemed lost when the two batsmen started to open up. Soumya Sarkar c (sub)Bairstow b 28(34) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Kayes, FOUR, edged and four, had there been a first slip., this would have been a dolly. This was a back of a length delivery outside off, Kayes was playing away from his body, gets a thick edge - past the keeper and into the fence

4

to Kayes, FOUR, poor ball from , full and on Kayes' pads, he gets across and whips it over square leg. Root was the man who came in from deep square leg, there's no one out there now and it's back-to-back boundaries for Kayes

4

to Tamim, FOUR, cracking shot, very full and on the stumps, Tamim leans forward, plays with a straight bat and drives it back past the non-striker, with two men in the ring - there's no need to run for those

4

to Tamim, FOUR, edged and four, it was the slower ball from , but there was plenty of width on it. Tamim threw his hands at that, gets a thick edge - through the vacant slip cordon and into the fence

4

to Kayes, FOUR, short, wide and four, easy pickings for Kayes, dragged down short and wide from . Kayes rides the bounce and cuts it over the slip cordon, one bounce and over the ropes

W

to Kayes, out Caught by Mark Wood!! That's a wonderful catch from Wood and another Bangladeshi batsman has thrown away a start. This was full and angling across the left-hander, Kayes had taken a start - took the chance and was looking to club it back past the bowler. He was playing against the angle, ended up dragging it in the air and wide of mid-on. It looked like a safe shot for a while, Wood had a long way to go, puts in the full-fledged dive, reaches out with both hands and holds on. A superb catch and England have once again put the brakes on the scoring. Kayes c Mark Wood b 19(20) [4s-3]

4

to Rahim, FOUR, lovely shot, on a good length and just outside off, Rahim gets close to the ball and punches it on the up, beats mid-off to his left and races away to the fence

4

to Tamim, FOUR, fifty for Tamim, his 37th in ODIs. Has been a patient effort, short and wide from , Tamim cracks it square behind point, beats the man in the ring and there's no chance for the man getting across from third man

6

Ali to Tamim, SIX, lovely shot, excellent use of the feet from Tamim, comes down the track, makes room as he did so and goes inside out over extra-cover, went a long way into the stands

4

to Tamim, FOUR, there's no one at deep backward square leg for Tamim and he makes hay. Banged in short and on the stumps, Tamim swivels across, rolls his wrists and pulls it behind square on the on-side for a boundary

4

to Tamim, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries for Tamim, this is an even better shot, on a good length and just outside off, Tamim gets forward, drives it on the up and beats mid-off to his left

4

to Rahim, FOUR, Rahim was ready for this one, back of a length and just outside off, no venom behind this short ball. Rahim swivels across and pulls it over mid-wicket, a couple of bounces and over the ropes

4

Wood to Tamim, FOUR, lovely shot, banged in short and just outside off, Tamim delays his pull and gets it in front of square on the on-side, beats mid-wicket and rolls away to the fence

4

to Tamim, FOUR, cheeky from Tamim, waits on this good length delivery outside off, opens the face of the bat at the last moment and runs it very fine past Buttler - beats the man getting across from third man

4

Ball to Rahim, FOUR, that asking to be hit like that. Ball is not express pace. Around 133ks this, and is short and wide, so Rahim umps up in his crease and cuts it over backward point. One bounce and over

4

to Rahim, FOUR, fifty for Rahim. And gets there in style. Some loop from , Rahim wanted to come down the track but then holds back and gives himself just that room to free his arms on the slap. And plays it straight down the ground. Not mid-off, not the bowler - no one in with a chance to field that

4

Ball to Rahim, FOUR, that's a good provisional shot actually. Ball fires it short and wide seeing Rahim making room, and all the batsman does is reach out and cut it over backward point

4

Ball to Rahim, FOUR, another good shot. Can't call is a cut in totality. Half cut, half ramp, as Rahim umps up and carves this short ball towards third man

OT

Ali to Tamim, 1 run, hundred for Tamim! Second Bangladesh batsman to get a hundred in the Champions Trophy. He keeps racking up records, does Tamim, like good players do. Here he plays late and that's how he steals the single. Got it behind the fielder on the leg-side this time and ran to glory. Helmet off, arms aloft and a hug from Rahim

4

to Tamim, FOUR, gee, a front foot pull! That's what a hundred does. Had charged out at the bowler, got the short ball but was pretty early to react. Harrows out a pull through mid-wicket. All hands. That swipe carried the ball through

6

Ali to Tamim, SIX, that's a shot and a half. No way you could have played it over long-on but Tamim is reading it so, so well. Made room for all the indrift and lofted it over long-on. Brilliant

6

Wood to Tamim, SIX, and the fielding change was for this. A back of a length delivery down leg from over the wicket, and Tamim does very well. Loads up quick and picks it up behind square leg. Well behind it

OT

to Tamim, 2 runs, very similar to the shot that cleared Moeen Ali but this time, after having made room, Tamim reads the slower short ball that follows him. So more in control, and gets one more to deep backward point. 150 run stand

4

Ball to Rahim, FOUR, how clever. 250 up for them, and 300 is on. Shuffles across, taking his front leg out, and scoops it right over the keeper. Brilliant. Adusting to the pace and then ensuring that he didn't pop it to backward point, say

4

Ball to Rahim, FOUR, no one at point and Rahim marauds this short-wide ball right through it. Uppish and Stokes cannot sweep this in the deep

W

to Tamim, out Caught by Buttler!! Bats do carry fortune, after all. He changed his bat before this ball and top-edges one behind. Banged in from round the wicket, might have rolled his wrists on it too, and Tamim is not on top of it. Either didn't read the length or the ball hit the seam and climbed. Either way, keeper Buttler shuffled across to his left and pouched one. What a well-timed wicket for England. This can cost 20 odd runs, I'd say. Tamim c Buttler b 128(142) [4s-12 6s-3]

W

to Rahim, out Caught by Hales!! That's a big blow. Two set batsmen and they depart in a space of two deliveries. Now this looked like a good shot. A bottom-handed whip, taking the ball from in front of the stumps, but Rahim timed it straight into the hands of the long-on fielder. Would have liked to go a little squarer but falls in trying to evade deep mid-wicket. Rahim c Hales b 79(72) [4s-8]

4

Wood to Shakib, FOUR, slightly slower - 130ks - and all Shakib does is delay his cut through covers. Absolutely lays into the width and gets on top of this. Rides it away

4

Wood to Shakib, FOUR, round the wicket, short in length and a boundary. And you'd think that Shakib has hit it, but it's his glove. And maybe the helmet too. So, so quick is Wood here. Tries to pull but the ball has arrived, ready to deflect through fine leg. Does

4

Ball to S Rahman, FOUR, errs with a full length ball and errs further in dishing out some width. Slapped away, kicking it up with a followthrough, and it evades the outstretched hands of extra cover there. Good effort but that was hit hard and quick

W

Ball to Shakib, out Caught by Stokes!! He had to do something. Came down the crease but the ball skid on, and did so straight at him, cutting the arm space to swing in front. So he sort of chips it up, like a checked back foot punch, and hence cannot impart power into the shot. Caught at deepish mid-on. Shakib c Stokes b Ball 10(8) [4s-2]

4

Wood to S Rahman, FOUR, that's a good shot. Full, at the stumps, and S Rahman has made room after half a step down the track, and slices it through cover-point

4

Ball to S Rahman, FOUR, shuffles across, and shuffles across enough to get outside the line of this fullish ball outside off. Scoops it and powers it over short fine leg. Enough over the fielder

W

to S Rahman, out Caught by Roy!! Had decided that he will clear his front leg and swing it away. Why not. 300's up and it's the last over. Does so, but to a ball that's an off-pace delivery on a good length. Finds the long-on fielder in the deep. Straight to him. S Rahman c Roy b 24(15) [4s-3]
