Hello, and welcome to the Oval for the first daylight match of this ICC
Champions Trophy. We are into the second round of games in group poppy
A, as Australia face Bangladesh. A must win match for both games, after
the first game against New Zealand was banned due to rain, and
Bangladesh lost their opener against England. At the top of the group,
England after victory over Bangladesh last Thursday. They face
New Zealand in Cardiff on Tuesday but the teams in this match know
that defeat will almost certainly end their hopes of reaching the
semifinals. One change to the Bangladesh line-up, Mehidi Hasan
comes in for Hossain as they look to strengthen their bowling attack
after failing to defend 305 against England last time out. Australia
have made one change to the team that faced New Zealand on Friday,
Adam Zampa comes in for John Hastings, a reflection on the fact
the game is played on the same pitch used for South Africa against Sri
Lanka on Saturday. Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat. Not a
surprise in decision with the game being played on a used strip but
with some rain forecast later, you would have thought chasing would be
an option should the game become a stop and start affair. The flags
above are at half-mast as the game gets under way, in tribute to those
affected by the terror attacks in London on Saturday night. The
umpires for this one are Nigel Llong and Chris Gaffney. Let's join the
action with our openers, Tamim Iqbal and Sarkar at the crease.
COMMENTATOR: We haven't seen any swing in the tournament so far. If
there is any, may be Starc will find it... Bowling for Tamim. Great pace.
Off the pad. Down into the fine leg boundary, is huge cheers from the
big Bangladesh crowd. As Bangladesh get themselves up and running. A
dash of arrogance... And swagger about Tamim. He's a good player with
a confident frame of mind. On the back of 100, he takes the game to
Australia. He takes his right leg away. A couple of steps down the
track, he nearly took his partner Sarkar with that shot. It was
powerfully played. This might go... To the short boundary. Yes, it's
going to be the dive, a despairing dive from a long way out. A second
boundary for Tamim. A very good piece of timing. Placement is even
better. A lot fella, did not try to hit it too hard. He just found the
gap. -- a lot more full. Short but wide, put away. Huge cheers greeting
the end of the fifth over. It's not a boundary. 22-0. Taken! Matthew
Wade diving across first slip, Hazelwood striking for Australia. A
little away from the ball, trying to reach for it. A genuine neck.
Australia would be very happy to see the back of Soumya in this opening
partnership. No real foot movement, a good catch ahead of first slip.
Soumya departs, Bangladesh 22-1. Will he get away with it? He does.
It is a tactic Australia fancy of Tamin, he has got away with a missed
poll just wide of mid-on. Easily done... Good length again. Trying to
force it and miss timing it. It's the end of Imrul Kayes. Probably a
stronger variation in length from Pat Cummins to Hazelwood, but he has
just started to really hit the deck. With the added pace, one doesn't
quite come on, or you get there early.
This was the case there. Australia get their second, steady at the
moment for the Australians out there. Not a massive run rate. He is
walking back. 37-2. It looks pretty straight... A full delivery again!
Mushfiqur Rahim is a good wicket. An experienced batsmen, among runs as
well. Another strike for the Australians. Falling straight for
Moses three Henriques. A little bit of scene back in to the
right-hander. The replay, showing that the seamers scrambled. Straight
on, clipping both pads. It is very adjacent to me. And her Henriques
agrees. As does the umpire. Bangladesh and all sorts of trouble,
53-3. One experienced batsmen is replaced by another. Shakib
Al-Hassan has not been in the greatest form in recent times. But
he is the mainstay of the Bangladesh batting. How close was back to the
fielder at short point? Maxwell is brilliant. Four runs for it.
Definitely close to Maxwell, hit like a bullet. That is one place
that you cannot bowl, to Shakib Al Hasan. Short and wide on the cut.
Deep in the crease. Going hard, in the reach of Maxwell at backward
point. Cut hard, put down. Put down by Maxwell at backward point. Hit
very hard, coming back for two. This would be tight, a good throw... It
isn't, men going everywhere out there. Maxwell wringing his hands,
that has heard. -- that has hurt. Let's hope he isn't heard too much.
At backward point, he could afford to give himself a little more
distance. 72-3. Down he goes! What a stroke,
absolutely brilliant! Over extra cover. That is brilliant. He is a
dangerous campaigner. That's what the fans have come to see. A
brilliant shot. What an opportunity to free the arms are pitiful, a
couple of steps down the track and wow! He goes again, this time to the
on-side! Not far from mid-wicket. But not close enough.
Iqbal cutting loose here. Over at long-off, this one is pulled away.
Powerfully played, into the gap. Ten off two deliveries for Iqbal. That
was six. Excellent off his feet and from the middle of the bat, that is
key. That will run away, and expensive over. Henriques goes for
16. 88-3. That is his 50. He keeps that form
going. He needs to get the 100 for his team again today, to get that
total of 239, if it is accurate... Running away for four. Nicely
played. Using the pace, and using the width. It has been a hard couple
of days for London. Obviously Manchester had gone through it as
well. Just a tragic situation. As we said at the start of our telecast,
our thoughts are with all of those affected. Is there are enough on it?
Not quite. Good running, coming back for two. Bringing up 104 Bangladesh.
-- bringing up 100, four Bangladesh. Steady as she goes, losing three
wickets but this partnership is growing quickly. A good job for
Trent Boult's skipper. Ricky Ponting and Ian Bishop joining
the commentary now. What a shot that was! Good use of the by Tamim.
Staying leg side of the ball, helping himself to extra cover. The
shot of the day so far. Going again... Tamim... A bigger hit, six
more! A terrific shot. Going up in the gears now, Tamim Iqbal, the time
in the innings has come, in the 30th over. Down he comes, first one over
extra cover. Great use of his feet, a swing of the bat and the first one
is even bigger. Bowling over here for the Australians, no leg spin. He
has given it! Revealing that he was down the track.
OK, the front foot is fine, let's go to the other one, please... Pretty
happy that there was no bat there. Front on Hot Spot?
OK, let's go for ball tracking, please. OK, Nigel, with ball
tracking... Umpire's call, hitting the wickets, stay with your
decision. Well, a very good decision. Nigel
Llong, Shakib Al Hasan, he is on his way. Lbw. Heading out for 29. A
gutsy decision but the right one. A very good decision. Savea Rahman,
the last ball of the over. -- Sabbir Rahman. Up and running straightaway.
15 off the over, and the wicket. 124-4. Shot... Very, very good shot.
You can see it in the Australians, at leg gully. Pat Cummins is trying
to tackle the thigh pad rib area of Tamim, who is having none of that.
Moving inside of the line and helping it on its way. A beautiful
shot, back in his crease and inside of the line of the ball. Almost
technique pull shot there. Tamim Iqbal moves onto 75.
It looks like there will be a bowling change. A much awaited
bowling change. Adam Zampa will come into the attack. He has success
straightaway. It is a good catch. Long-awaited and he has not
disappointed. He has not. He has the knack. That is why he was the
leading wicket taker in the world. It was wide and driven straight into
the hands of captain Steven Smith. Welcome to the crease, Adam Zampa.
One of the seniors of the Bangladesh team. Back-to-back hundreds in the
20 15th World Cup in Australia. Mahmudullah up and running. That was
great. The good extension of the hands and arms. Not right out of the
middle but it is good enough. And this time he is out. No doubt
about it. There is the second. Talking about Adam Zampa's wicket
taking ability and towards the end of the innings. The batsmen trying
to force it off the back. The top then came quickly off the pitch.
Normally for the sea may you expect it to be pushed through. -- a
seamer. Normally it goes to the front of the hand. No wonder it
skidded off the pitch. He has gone for eight, Mahmudullah.
How Bangladesh played in the last match, he was capable batsmen and he
was dropped. Got a few runs. Test match against India got 50 and here
again. When short of the leg-spinner. Has it got enough pace
on it? I don't think so. It has been mopped up. That shot for two. It out
on strike. It is in the air. -- Iqbal on strike. That would have
been his first 100 against Australia but he pulls five runs short. A big
moment for the Aussies. The Bangladeshi fans are applauding the
effort that some had their heads down when they saw this happening. A
good catch. Got under the ball. He has played that shot right through
the innings. You have to feel for him. He misses 100 today. He has
gone for 95. There it is. That's what he can do.
Mitchell Starc, bang on target. The one that he missed, the first ball
from more tiles, it was slightly slow. -- Mortaza. The ball before
was quicker but not all is I like this one. A bit too good. Two
wickets and three balls for Mitchell stopped. He is coming back to full
fitness. -- Mitchell Starc. He has that radar right. It is
incredible bowling at the death. That should not surprise anyone. The
ball was going to be quick. It has to be at the stumps. Three wickets
from four balls. A bit too good. Batting down the order. Another 90
mph delivery from Mitchell Starc. He has gone for a duck. He is on a
hat-trick now. Two slips in position. What a moment! Can he do
it? Just misses the off-stump. Just misses the stumps. He was not far
away. He hammers to keep his bat down about three inches. -- he has
to keep. A triple wicket. It has taken Mitchell Starc a while.
Eventually falling to the short ball and then a couple of Mitchell Starc
special. Very fast and very straight.
Got him. That will do. Mitchell Starc finishes with figures of 4-29
in 8.3 overs. Australia have bowled out Bangladesh for 182. A much
improved bowling performance from Australia today as the rain starts
to fall. You can see on the camera lens one or two drops of rain
falling. A few anxious moments for Australia. They will want to get the
game down and dusted. After racking up more than 300 against England,
Bangladesh would have wanted to build on that. The top order
struggled to provide enough support for open tammim a cabal. Only two
other batsmen made double figures. -- Tamim Iqbal. The Australian
bowlers pitched away at the start. Adam Zampa paid dividends. Mitchell
Starc ran through the tail order. Mitchell Starc, 4-29. Much better.
The much improved performance. I think we spoke about it after the
last game. A much cleaner effort today. What word conditions like? It
is quite windy and cold. Josh got it moving a bit. Maybe a couple of the
wicket. I think it was more disciplined bowling effort. How
pleased are you with three wickets? It is nice to get that. We spoke
after the last performance, it was nice for all of us to contribute.
Are you nervous about the weather? Hopefully it will go away. We have
done our job with the ball. Australia clearly had one eye on the
weather as they battled through the Bangladesh tail, wanting to get on
with their run chase as soon as possible. Players resuming after a
slight delay. Openers Aaron Finch and David Warner starting the run
chase. They are off and running, Australia.
He has timed that quite nicely. A good run will --.
Nice. The balance in playing that shot and the control, a pleasure to
watch. Seven of the first over without loss.
And he went to wide. That genuine seamer delivery was put away by
Aaron Finch quite easily. He just looks a little more composed,
doesn't he? He has only played seven deliveries. Here's quite frenetic in
the first game. Birmingham may be under more pressure in terms of the
scoreboard and the quality of the opening bowlers. He looks calmer.
Four. Badly lined. Especially so, given the fine leg is up inside the
circle. Broad blade or not. The inside edge
clashes to the fence. He mixes up his pace very well in
this field. A couple of poor deliveries that
have gone for four in the last few overs. This was a real powderpuff
delivery. Halfway down, nothing behind it. Warner just happy to help
it on its way. A good shot. There was the field are
therefore exactly that kind of shot but he was too square.
One of the few Aussies in the crowd. He liked what he saw. A short ball.
He got that cleanly. The pressure release for Aaron Finch. Kept low.
The finger goes up. Aaron Finch knew exactly what the verdict was going
to be. There he goes. Right-hander. That is what he loves. That is why
he has such great numbers against right-handers. That is what we were
talking about with that action. Traps Aaron Finch. No hesitation. He
has to go and Australia lose their first wicket.
Steve Smith, the Australian captain, the new man at the crease. A very
high strike rate. A good touch as well at the start of the New Zealand
game. A couple of classic off drives. A challenge here. Rubel
challenging the pads once again. A good start. That was coming back for
the third. Eight runs from the over but the wicket as well.
Bang! Full and met with a thunderous cover drive from the Australian
captain. The 50 comes up for Australia. A bit surprised with the
men catching on the leg side. I wonder where they are going with
that. Because it takes the pays off, he sets himself up like that.
Catching on the off-side, that is what he does. The off cutters with
that angle. What is the purpose of the two fielders on the leg side?
Had a- at leg stump with the first ball. Now the slip has come out.
What it does with their heavy leg side, it stops Steven Smith moving
across his stumps too far. A full toss. That was quite comfortable.
Started with a slow delivery. The dive and a couple of runs. Nice
fielding and a nice ball. Maybe a bit of a seam back in. Certainly
extra ounce. Caught the inside edge and flew down to fine leg.
Playing well within himself, David Warner.
It is going to come back for the second. Good thing. Warner with no
heat doesn't have the strongest throwing arm in world cricket. He is
in and out very quickly. Going back to this angle he creates from around
the wicket, the margin for error is very small. He almost as to start it
outside the body of the left-handed batsmen. It starts down the line of
the stumps will stop by the time it gets to the batsmen it is very wide.
The margin for error is very small. Punched into the off-side and
bounces over. Two more. If he goes round the wicket he will have so
many options. He is cramping the left-hand batsmen rather than giving
him a chance to free his arms on the off-stump.
Just finding the gap here... Good fielding. A couple of runs, a good
and solid partnership, this. Look at David Warner's ODI career, what a
record that is. A very imposing record. Past short fine leg. Coming
back for two. That will bring up 4001-day international runs for
David Warner. -- 4000 one-day international runs. The finest to
reach that milestone. Look at his strike rate. An average close to 45,
1300. There you are, the quickest Aussie to get to 4000 one-day
international runs. 83-1. I am afraid regulations demand
that the umpires must call drinks onto the field of play.
I think, just as the umpire has called drinks, Nigel Llong and Chris
Gaffaney has decided that the rain is coming down too heavily. They
have asked the ground is meant to bring on the covers. This is bad
news for all concerned. We have only had 16 overs, 20 overs constitutes a
game. Australia are hovering on the brink of what would be a victory.
They still find themselves four overs short of a possible game.
Australia, at least, a no result means they still have the chance of
going through. That's the only wicket to fall so far. David Warner
Mayday composed 40 from 44, Smith in decent touch. 22, 83 41.
Rubel, the only wicket taker today. -- 83-1. Nothing for anyone else.
The off-spinner has just bowled a solitary over. This is where they
are, with rain tumbling down and a forecast that is not so good.
Australia four overs away from 20 over, which would make a result? I
would love to say welcome back we have some cricket to go but that is
not the case. The match was abandoned, the chance
of an 8:30pm start but unfortunately it only stopped raining for 20
minutes, a little longer, then it came back with a vengeance. As
heavy as it has been all night. Persistent, the match was abandoned.
Australia started the innings in measured fashion but with one eye on
the sky and gathering rain clouds, Aaron Finch was the first wicket to
fall, Rubel with 45 on the board. David Warner played within himself
to keep that scoreboard ticking along. The captain took Australia to
83-1, by the drinks break, after 16 overs, they were well ahead of the
par score but the heavy rain forced the game off.
The rain and the gloom never lifted long enough for play to resume. So,
a below par total meaning Bangladesh's bowlers were always up
against it, trying to contain and take wickets but in the end, the
weather save them from what looked like an inevitable second defeat in
the tournament. If 20 overs were completed in the run chase,
Australia would have been well ahead of a Duckworth-Lewis pass go and
victory would have been there, but the rain meant an abandoned match,
much to the frustration of the Australians. Steve, how did you take
these wash-outs on the chin? It was obviously disappointed not to get a
game in today. We were heading down a pretty good path. It's
disappointing not to get a result in the end. And how would you accept
today's result? I think Australia were unlucky, but on the other hand,
we are still in the tournament and obviously, not how we would like to.
But we can't do anything. You have to win your next game against New
Zealand and hope England win there too, does that affect your approach?
This could help us a lot, obviously. We need to play hard again in the
next match, but you never know. It has put you in a straightforward
position where you had to beat England? That's right. It's a
quarterfinal for us, as such. They are a good side and playing good
cricket. A tough match, but the equation is pretty simple now...
Today's match coming in to bat, your bowlers appear to have listened to
your cries after the last game? They were much better, hitting good areas
early on. They challenged the Bangladeshi batters. I thought that
all of the bowlers did better today. And they set us up for a good game,
bowling them out for 130. Mashrafe, do you agree with what Steve said?
Obviously, they had some good and exciting bowlers, we knew that it
would be hard but the way we batted was really good. It is always hard,
nobody could give him the support that he needed. And the bowlers
hitting in the right areas, always asking more of the wicket. They have
been up to the mark, and I think our team was phenomenal today. Hopefully
we can continue, and another batsmen can support him and we can do
something else. No results gives the team one point each, leaving England
still the top of the group. Australia and Bangladesh and both
still make the semifinals. Australia have only England are to face, and
much will depend on how England fare against New Zealand in Cardiff later
today. But for now, from the Oval, a very wet oval, it's goodbye.
England's next match is later today against New Zealand in Cardiff. The
highlights on BBC Two from 11:45pm tonight. On Gwen 's day, it's back
to group B for another encounter. Pakistan against South Africa at
Edgbaston. The highlights on Thursday morning.
