commentary

Alright then. Did we see this coming? Bangladesh trouncing the Windies? Ummm... perhaps we did. This unit in Green is way too confident right now while the visitors are losing their competitive edge with every game they play. Can we see some more competitiveness in the next game? Join us for the second ODI on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 1 pm local (0700 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Victorious Bangladesh captain, Mashrafe Mortaza has been named the MAN OF THE MATCH. Feels that Windies are dangerous in this format and hence, is happy with his bowlers for keeping them quiet and not allowing the opposition to forge a partnership. On the ploy to open with spin, Mortaza says that he just wanted to spring a surprise, given the way the Windies collapsed against spin in the Tests. Praises Rahim, Liton and Shakib for playing well and being professional. On his upcoming 200th match in the third ODI in Sylhet, Mashrafe deflects the question away, saying that he has got other challenges in mind, stating that the second ODI is to be played first.

Windies skipper, Rovman Powell, admits that the toss was a big factor. Agrees that the batting was not great which brought about their downfall and hopes that there is a better performance in the next game. Scrutinizes that batsmen getting in did not make use of their starts. On the pitch, Powell says that he thought that the difficulty to bat would have been only for some time but got surprised to see that for so long. Credits the entire support staff and the seniors for helping him in his captaincy stint.

Should Powell have elected to chase? There was plenty of dew around and the bowlers were finding it difficult to grip the ball. Worth a thought if he does win the toss in the second game, which is at this same venue. As he impressed in India, Oshane Thomas rung the alarm bells here as well. But only in his first spell. After he was seen off, there was hardly any threat from the other bowlers. Please stay tuned for the presentation.

Perhaps Rovman Powell could have set attacking fields. Maybe, he might have got a couple of more wickets. Bangladesh were 2 down in Powerplay 1 but once the fielding restrictions were over, the Windies just spread the field, allowing a partnership to grow. Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das made full use of that, soaking in the early pressure and then the former used his experience to guide his side through, with help from Shakib.

196 was never a massive target but the Windies could have made the victory a bit difficult. They dismissed Tamim and Kayes in the span of 5 balls but the Rahim-Das partnership pegged them back. And then, Shakib's cameo sealed the deal.

Easy peasy then. Won't say the hosts have won without breaking a sweat as losing two quick wickets would have put a doubt in their minds but eventually, the lack of a bigger target enabled them to cruise home.

D Bishoo to M Rahim, VICTORY FOR BANGLADESH! In a pretty convincing manner. Full and around off, Rahim comes forward to defend but the ball spins away, takes the outside edge and goes well wide of first slip. Backward point has some work to do before he can get to the ball and by that time, the required two runs are taken. BANGLADESH WIN BY 5 WICKETS WITH 89 BALLS TO SPARE!

R Chase to S Sarkar, OUT! That Drinks break has broken the concentration of Sarkar. Classic off-spinner's dismissal. Full and outside off, Soumya reaches out to push but the ball spins away, takes the outside edge and skipper Rovman Powell pockets a simple catch at first slip. Just delaying the inevitable.

DRINKS BREAK. Well, does anyone need this break right now? But such are the laws of the game. Just 23 runs more needed and Bangladesh are about to finish this off in a jiffy. Given the way Soumya is playing, it could be done and dusted with in the next couple of overs.

R Powell to S Sarkar, SAFE. Full and outside off, Sarkar drives it towards mid off. He initially calls for a single but then sends Rahim back. There is a direct hit at the bowler's end and it is referred upstairs but no harm done to the home side.

And we have a run out appeal straightaway. Is Rahim safe?

Soumya Sarkar is the new man in at number 6, replacing Shakib.

26.1

R Powell to Al Hasan, OUT! Caught behind! The captain has struck first ball. Can he produce some inspiration and get Windies back into the game? Not many runs to play with. A loose shot from Shakib. He was anyways playing in a manner to finish the game quickly and has eventually perished. Full and wide outside off, Shakib looks to drive but with his feet glued to the crease. An outside edge is induced and Shai Hope takes the simplest of catches. A breezy cameo from the former captain and one would guess that should be more than enough for a 1-0 series lead. Just 50 more needed from 143 balls.

Rovman Powell brings himself on.

R Chase to Al Hasan, EDGED, BUT NO ONE TO TAKE IT! Might have been a big moment but hard to say so with confidence. It was a short ball outside off and Shakib went back to cut. But the ball came in with the angle and he got cramped for room. An outside edge was induced but there was no one at slip. Two runs to third man.

K Paul to L Das, OUT! BOWLED! That is a poor shot. A nothing delivery, on a length, just outside off. Das however, tries to manufacture a pull shot, in a lazy manner. Just looks to whip without moving his feet and pays the price. Is nowhere near the ball and misses. The stumps are rattled. The 47-run stand is broken but Bangladesh need 107 more from 190 balls.

D Bishoo to M Rahim, SAFE. The foot was dragged out but it came back in. Not quite sure whether there was a nick though. Plenty of drama. Full and outside off, Rahim came forward to defend but the ball spun away into Shai Hope's gloves. The bowler appealed and then started to celebrate as well but then realized that the keeper is not appealing for the catch. The captain now gets involved and has a chat with Hope and Bravo, who was at first slip. The latter two seem to indicate that they did not hear any noise and the review thought got aborted. But Hope did ask the square leg umpire about the stumping and it was referred upstairs. Replays show that the foot did come out but before Shai could affect the stumping, it came back in.

Is that a wicket? Could be a catch, could be a stumping... it is the latter which is referred upstairs.

D Bishoo to L Das, Lovely shot. A correction from the one he played on ball number 3. There, he was not to the pitch of the ball. This time, he slightly delayed his jump, got to the pitch of the ball and lofted it gloriously over cover. A couple taken and the stand is worth 31 from 43 deliveries.

D Bishoo to M Rahim, Full and outside off, Rahim comes forward and then lets it go, carefully watching it spin away.

DRINKS BREAK. A good passage of play. Windies have mixed pressure with freebies and Bangladesh have mixed caution with carelessness. They are slightly ahead on the comparison worm at the end of 15 overs but their batsmen are far more superior in comparison to the visitors. They should pull it off but a couple of quick wickets and funny things can happen.

O Thomas to M Rahim, DOT BALL. On this Free Hit as well. Maybe, if a set batsman had played this, it would have been runs. Rahim is new to the crease and perhaps his feet are not moving that quickly. He backs away in advance and slashes hard, attempting an upper cut but misses. Terrific over from Oshane.

Second Free Hit.

O Thomas to I Kayes, OUT! BOWLED! Beaten by pace! What a ball from Thomas. Fiery pace. Bowled at 144.2 kph, on a length outside off. Kayes looks to defend but the ball snakes in off the seam, before the bat can even come down. Even when it does, it is outside the line. Kaboom. Timber.

K Roach to L Das, IT IS A NO BALL! Criminal from Roach. Das gets a life. First, let us describe the drama and then the suspense. A short ball, outside off, Das pulls it towards mid-wicket but finds Shimron Hetmyer in the deep to perfection! But hang on. The umpires want to check for the no ball and plenty of replays are shown - the foot is ON THE LINE and eventually it is signalled a no ball. Das is called back.

NO BALL? Das has been caught but has Roach overstepped? Referred upstairs...

R Chase to L Das, TURN AND BOUNCE! That is a surprise. Flighted outside off, Das comes forward to defend but out of nowhere, the ball spits up, bounces up towards his chest and Liton has to adjust to defend. Cannot do so and the ball flies off the edge but wide of short mid-wicket.
