Haddin bowled by Maharaf.Ponting in at 3 playing under clarke feels weird.
Ponting smashes three consecutive FOURS off of Mashrafe. Positive start after relieving himself of captaincy
Any idea which channel is showing this game in India? What's the score now?
It'll be interesting to see how Punter does without the weight of captaincy on his shoulders.
Ravi Bopara 201?
When did it happen?

Ravi Bopara made a 201 in List A. But this is ODI. So its different mate. You could have asked for Ponting breaking Sachin's 200.
76 for 1 after 10 overs

I am surpirsed to see low turnout of crowd in the ground
Ponting playing some delicious shots, Watson brutal as usual

I'm really enjoying Greg Matthews' commentary, doesn't waste and yet doesn't mince words, and good observations. Also had a sense of humour
Better comeback by Razzaq just 3 runs off the over

79 for 1 after 11 overs
Moment of madness and Bangladesh capitalize. That is where they are good, their fielding is better than India's and Pakistan's (though probably not SL)
Pity for Ponting's cameo to end this way, but not for me--I'm supporting Bangladesh!
Shuvo is too much into the pads of the batsmen

85 for 2 after 12 overs
It looks like it could have gone onto hit the outer edge of leg stump, timely wicket for Bangladesh
Bangladesh have pulled things back nicely. Spinners will further tighten things up in the middle overs.
Shakib, Abdur Razzak, Shuvo, and Mahmudullah will be bowling the majority of the 30+ overs remaining. Scoring will not be easy for the Aussies
That looked close, razzaq appeals for LBW

Edit: Nope it would have missed the leg stump
Both Shakib n Razzaq continues to bowl tight overs

Aussies are struggling to break free

100 for 3 after 19 overs
What does it take to drop White? If he doesn't hit a boundary, he blocks every ball and can't rotate strike.
Run rate now below 5. Bangladesh need to get a wicket soon though
There's the wicket! Superb catch for Imrul Kayes galloping across in the outfield. An excellent second spell from Shafiul Islam as well after early struggles, the lad has lotsa character
ramiz raja commentating..doesn't he only commentate for pakistani matches or does he have a contract with a particular channel or group
^"270-280 possible provided Clarke strikes a relationship with Hussey"- Raja aka Rambo
So Haddin did nothing, Watto made 50 odd and went out, Ponting hit a few fours and went out.

Move along people nothing new to see here....
