      The pitch is absolutely perfect for batting, so when Mohammed Ashraful won the toss he did just that, sending Hossain and Nafees to the crease on a hot sunny day. No rain expected until day 5. Can Bangladesh settle in and make a decent score against the best in the world?

      Lee in his first over shouts for a catch behind off Nafees, turned down. Lee's 4th over produced the wicket of Hossain for 7, driving and edging to Ronchi, the keeper. Bowling in short 4-over bursts, Lee came on for his 2nd spell and immediately got Nafees caught behind for 30. Three balls later he had Iqbal trapped in front for a duck. Hasan two shy of his half century at lunch.

      Bangladesh 3 for 111. Lee 3 for 20.

      Johnson bowled Ashraful soon after lunch for 23 and then two overs later got Reza to edge to slips, only to be dropped. From then on it was mostly smooth sailing as Hasan 89* not out off 168 balls, and Reza 47* off 87 balls, approach their respective century and half century.

      Bangladesh 4 for 213 at tea.

      Hasan was an early victim to a full pitch delivery onto his pads for 92, well bowled Peter Siddle. Reza and Islam kept the runs ticking, and the Australian bowlers, with the new ball not helping their cause late in the day, and with many pacemen tired, Ponting even brought on Mike Hussey for an 11-ball first over, 5-ball second, 7-ball third over to finish the day.

      Bangladesh 5 for 296.
      Reza 84 off 192.
      Islam 41 off 76.

      Day 2 - The pitch is showing slight signs of wear, the outfield is average and we're expecting a hot day.

      Siddle caught Reza with a a great caught and bowled for 87 in his first over of the day, and he soon got the out of sorts Golam Mabud for 3, LBW, plumb in front. The tail was exposed and soon dismissed...

      Bangladesh 325 all out.
      Hasan 92. Reza 87. Islam 52 not out.
      Siddle 4 for 79. Lee 4 for 61.

      Aussies looking good 0 for 25 at lunch.

      Jaques fell LBW to Reza for 13. Ponting facing Shuvo spooned a catch to a short leg that wasn't there, Bangladesh lamenting. But bad luck turns good two balls later when Ponting tries to cut and gets an edge to first slip for 9. Pomersbach and Hussey are good though.

      Australia 2 for 128 at tea.

      The lunch and tea breaks have been consistently catching batmen short of attention all test match. This time Mr. Cricket fell LBW to Islam for 41. and then two balls later Luke Pomersbach tickled one in the air briefly and snaffled at short leg by Hasan for 72 off 142 balls. Two fresh batsmen, Symonds survived an early LBW shout, but Islam persisted and bowled Symonds for 15. He then had Katich caught behind for 22. Stumps.

      Australia 6 for 206. The pitch is still fine and tomorrow is another hot one.

      Day 3 - The new ball is taken and Shahzada gets the first wicket of the day, Ronchi for a slow 15 off 79. His future test career looks very shaky at 29 years of age, still without a test century. Lee and Johnson proving quite difficult to dismiss, Islam finally getting Johnson caught by Hasan at first slip for a well played 54.

      Australia 8 for 290 at lunch.

      Shahzada cleans up the tail. Australia 300 all out. 25 runs behind. Phil Jaques 72, Mitchell Johnson 54. Manjural Islam 5 for 72. Mohammed Shahzada 3 for 73.

      Siddle bowls Nafees for 16, Raqibul Hasan waltzes on and cuts the next ball for 6!

      Bangladesh 1 for 41 at tea.

      In-form Hasan was eventually dismissed an hour from stumps for 36, LBW to Shaun Tait. Hossain notched his half-century off a patient 142 balls, Mitchell Johnson getting the key breakthrough of Iqbal LBW for 2. Ashraful swinging the bat to have Bangladesh leading by 169 at stumps on day 3.

      Bangladesh 3 for 144.

      Day 4 - The weather is now looking a little more unpredictable and so is the pitch.

      Ashraful cops a nasty bouncer from Johnson, as Hossain notches his maiden test century - a great feat vs Australia in a 2nd innings - in 251 balls. Ashraful getting his 50 from 112 balls, just prior to the new ball being taken on lunch.

      Bangladesh 3 for 226. (251 runs ahead)

      Ashraful does not hang around, smartly taken by Ronchi for 58. A partnership record with Hossain of 124. Reza made 38 before Johnson gets him caught and bowled. Hossain left on 149 at the tea break, his highest ever test score.

      Bangladesh 5 for 318. (343 runs ahead)

      Hossain brings up his 150 with a slashing cover drive. Siddle gets Islam and then Johnson retires Hossain slogging down the ground for 181 off 285 balls, with 7 boundaries. The tail fell in pitiful style - 2 ducks - and Bangladesh have 45 minutes at the Aussies before stumps on day 4, 405 runs ahead.

      Bangladesh all out 380.
      Hossain 181, Ashraful 58.
      Johnson 5-56. Siddle 4-126.

      Australia were batting comfortably towards stumps but late rain hit and did not relent during day 5. Only after the roller had come out and the covers had been removed were Bangladesh allowed to finally bowl at Australia with around 20 minutes remaining in the day. Shahzada was on a hat trick, bowling Jaques and little Punter with consecutive balls.

      Australia 3 for 67.
      Jaques not out 28.
      Shahzada 3-31.

      Match drawn.

      Man of the match: Mehrab Hossain


      2nd test match Australia vs Bangladesh.

      Perfect pitch for batting, maybe some turn for spin later in the match. Some rain predicted day 5.

      Bangladesh: Salahuddin comes in making his test debut on the back of some good bowling form. Rahman (wicketless again) takes a seat.
      Australia: Mark Cameron comes in for Tait.

      Day 1.
      Mohammed Ashraful wins the toss again and decides to bat.


      • #18
        A bit of cloud cover early gave fast bowlers something to work with as Bangladesh slowly batted out the first session. Nafees gave a catch to short leg (it was dropped) midway through.

        Bangladesh 0 for 61.

        Nafees picked up the pace after lunch as Bangladesh set a new 1st wicket partnership record of 152 and counting. Nafees reaching his century off 193 balls, including 13 boundaries.

        Bangladesh 0 for 190 at tea.
        Nafees 110 not out. Hossain 75 not out.

        Fifth ball after tea, Nafees was taken at first slip by Hussey off the bowling of Lee for 110. It was a terrific catch, and a wicket Australia badly needed. A record opening partnership of 191. Hossain soon brought up his century off 220 balls, but was bowled by Mitchell Johnson soon after for 105. Iqbal failing for the third time in a row, bowled in the same over by an amazing Mitchell Johnson delivery for a duck. The ball dipped in and then swung away from the left hander. One of the best deliveries I've seen.

        Bangladesh 3 for 274.

        Day 2...


        • #19
          Day 2.

          Hasan was caught at short leg in the very first over from Peter Siddle for 38. Ashraful reached his fifty off 94 balls with 45 minutes remaining in the session. Symonds got the breakthrough before lunch bowling Ashraful for 54.

          Bangladesh 5 for 369.
          Reza 40 not out. Islam 7 not out.
          They should be aiming for 450 by tea. Aussies will be trying to bowl them out for under 400.

          Reza elegantly edged wide of slip for a boundary, a half century off 122 balls. Islam fell LBW to Lee for 31, Reza was caught at bat pad by Cameron of the bowling of Symonds for 75. Johnson ripped the stumps out of the ground and Mabud again scoring poorly, 18 runs. Johnson bowled Shahzada for a duck,

          At tea, Bangladesh 9 for 457.

          Salahuddin and Shuvo kept the score ticking to 520 before Johnson got Salahuddin LBW for 45. Shuvo 25 not out.
          The pitch is still good for batting, but the spinners may start to get some turn.

          Australia were typically aggressive early but Shahzada edged Jaques to the keeper for 23 in his last over of his first spell.

          Australia 1 for 54 at stumps.

          Day 3 -

          Isam got Pomersbach for 40, an attempted sweep that got a leading edge to short cover. Mabud was lightning quick to remove Ponting stumped for 5, after Ponting advanced and played a defensive shot only for the ball to spin around his pads. The look of disgust on his face says it all. Failing to win the last test match, Australia face the possibility of losing to Bangladesh on home soil. Ponting has already lost the ashes twice!

          Australia 3 for 119.

          Shuvo came on for his first spell after lunch and soon got Katich LBW for 25. Symonds and Hussey were determined to chase down the total and were looking unstoppable until an edge from Symonds flew wide of second slip, Hasan diving to his right to snare an amazing catch off the bowling of Salahuddin for 24, his first test wicket and an important one, Australia 5 for 184.

          At tea, Aussies, 5 for 201. The new ball due.

          Johnson was a victim of the new ball, edging to Mabud - a nice catch - for 16. Hussey made his hundred and then was out LBW to Shahzada for 102. Ronchi was caught at slip for 16, Reza getting his first wicket. Cameron then spooned a catch back the bowler and Reza was on a hat trick. His hat trick ball was too good, movement in bating the bat and through to the keeper.
          Dropped catches, edges, LBW shouts, and finally Siddle was caught by Shahzada for 3.

          Australia 279 all out. Asked to follow on.

          Australia 0 for 6 at stumps.

          Day 4.
          Salahuddin got the first wicket, Pomersbach for 23 at short mid wicket. Shuvo then got Jaques LBW for a well played 74 off 126 balls. It was the last ball before lunch.

          Australia 2 for 123. 118 runs behind.

          The spinners continued and Islam got Hussey edging to slip for 14. Shahzada came on and retired Katich for 7. Islam got Ponting cutting for 38, Australia in real trouble at 5 for 163. You could hear the jeers as the Australian Captain slinked off the field. Islam then bowled Mitchell Johnson for an 11 ball duck. Shahzada getting Ronchi to edge to first slip for 3. Aussies 7 for 174, still 67 runs behind. Shuvo then got Symonds edging for 10.

          Australia 8 for 192.

          An idiotic run out of Brett Lee extinguished any hope of at least making Bangladesh bat again. The new ball did the trick...

          Australia all out for 220.
          Jaques 74, Ponting 38
          Islam 3-62.

          Bangladesh win by an innings and 21 runs.

          Man of the match: Shahriar Nafees

          Bangladesh win the test series 1- 0

          ODI Friendly - Victoria vs Bangladesh

          S Nafees
          N Mirza
          R Hasan
          T Iqbal
          G Mabud
          M Ashraful
          F Reza
          A Salahuddin
          A Sunny
          M Shahzada
          D Mahmud

          Victoria have ex-Aussie ODI player Cameron White and ex-test player (with a 58.43 average) Brad Hodge,

          Allan Wise was the best of the bowlers as Victoria ripped through an incompetent Bangladesh in 31 overs.

          Bangladesh 100 all out (31 overs)
          Iqbal 20, Mirza 19
          Wise 3-18

          A few dropped chances on a day Bangladesh would rather forget.

          Victoria 2 for 102 (24.3 overs)
          Jewell 36 not out. Blizzard 36.
          Sunny 1-6

          1st ODI Australia vs Bangladesh

          From the test team, Australia field Shane Watson and West Australian Steve Magoffin in place of Jaques and a bowler. Bangladesh from the Victoria game have picked Hossain, Islam and Shuvo; replacing Salahuddin, Sunny and Mirza.
          Ashraful wins the toss and tentatively chooses to bat first with an out-of-form top 4, a pitch that has some movement for the seamers.

          Nafees was put down early on 7 runs, but just an over later he skied an attempted slog down the ground, caught by Johnson. Cameron's very first ball trapped Hossain in front for 15. But when Iqbal soon hit a Cameron full toss down the ground for 6, the game had suddenly shifted a gear.
          Iqbal soon had his 50 off 50 balls, but was bowled by Lee for 53. Hasan reaching his 50 off 56 balls. He too was soon caught right on the boundary at 3rd man for 61 by Cameron off the bwoling of Mitchell Johnson. Reza feathered one to Ronchi for 9. Ashraful was devastating with the bat and had his half-century in 40 balls, Manjural Islam bowled by Watson's brut of a ball for a quick 31.

          Bangladesh 9 for 284 (50 overs)
          Hasan 61, Ashraful 59, Iqbal 53
          Lee 2-50

          Shahzada and Mahmud got both openers quickly. Reza got Ponting for 33 and Watson for 12. Once Clarke went for 55, the run rate looked too much at 6.4 an over. Symonds and Ronchi took it to the spin attack of Shuvo and Islam, but Shuvo got Ronchi caught Mubud for 28, and Australia soon fell 41 runs short. A fairly good effort to chase such a big total on a crumbling pitch.

          Australia 243 all out (46.1)
          Symonds 66, Ponting 55
          Reza 4-54

          Bangladesh win by 41 runs.

          Man of match: F Reza

            2nd ODI Bangladesh vs England

            Bangladesh no change.


            A Cook
            J Middleton
            K Pietersen
            I Bell
            W Highsmith
            M Prior
            A Flintoff
            A Shantry
            R Sidebottom
            M Davies
            M Panesar

            A decent scoring wicket as Bangladesh win the toss and bat first.
            Shantry bowled Hossain in his first over for 1, Davies trudging in to his 8th consecutive over bowled Nafees for 42 off 53. Iqbal was looking dangerous until Panesar edged him to the keeper for 23. Hasan soon ot his 50 off 56 balls, Bangladesh 3 for 129 at the midway point.
            Hasan soon went caught behind for 57, and then Freddie Flintoff got Reza for 1 caught at slip. Bangladesh 5 for 152.
            Ashraful and Islam batted slowly, but with 10 overs to go were still at the crease, 5 for 198. A big finish a real possibility.
            Ashraful got his 50 but Islam fell 2 runs short, LBW to Panesar. Bangladesh on a tear in the end.

            Bangladesh 7 for 281 (50 overs)
            Ashraful 83 not out (off 82 balls), Hasan 57, Islam 48, Nafees 42
            No English bowler is worth mentioning in the scoreline.

            Englang were full of fight early, and when Shuvo came on to bowl Middleton for 30, the Lions were a healthy 1 for 70. But then Cook went LBW during a Shuvo wicket maiden, he made 39, Reza then getting Bell LBW for 12.
            Pietersen and Highsmith were marvelous at the crease, spanking the two fast bowlers Mahbud and Shazada all over the park.
            The target looked sure to be reached with 4.8 RPO to get off the last 5 overs, But Islam bowled Highsmith for 73, Pietersen knocking his 100 in 86 balls. It was all over.

            England 4 for 282 (48.2 overs)
            Pietersen 104 not out, Highsmith 73.
            Shuvo 2-45

            England win by 6 wickets
