Bangladesh get the bet­ter of Eng­land

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP): APTAIN MASHRAFE Mor­taza in­spired Bangladesh to a 34-run vic­tory against Eng­land in the sec­ond one-day in­ter­na­tional yes­ter­day.

Mor­taza hit a 29-ball 44 as Bangladesh ac­cel­er­ated to 238-8 in test­ing con­di­tions and then claimed 4-29 to bowl out Eng­land for 204 in 44.4 overs.

The three-match se­ries is level at 1-1.

Mah­mudul­lah set the plat­form for Mashrafe with a su­perb 75.

Jos But­tler scored a run-a-ball 57 for Eng­land, while Jonny Bairstow made 35. Adil Rashid (33 not out) re­fused to give up, adding two sig­nif­i­cant part­ner­ships after his team was re­duced to 132-8.

Bangladesh held its nerve as Mor­taza fit­tingly sealed the deal with the wicket of last man Jake Ball.

Fast-bowler Taskin Ahmed took 3-47.

Eng­land found it­self vul­ner­a­ble on a pitch that was slower than the one used in the first match.

Mor­taza ad­mirably moved the ball both ways to spark the toporder col­lapse. He made the ini­tial break­through with the wicket of James Vince (5).

through the gate for a duck. Mor­taza then struck twice, dis­miss­ing Ja­son Roy (13) and Ben Stokes (0).

Eng­land was re­duced to 26-4, but But­tler and Bairstow com­bined for a 79-run part­ner­ship. It came to an end after Bairstow’s ex­pan­sive drive against Ahmed cost his wicket.

But the big­gest blow for Eng­land came when Ahmed won a video re­view to re­move But­tler, who tried to flick a length ball. But­tler ap­peared an­gered by some­thing that had been said to him and was slow to leave the pitch.

At 132-8, vic­tory looked un­likely de­spite more than 20

overs still to be bowled. Rashid gave Eng­land fresh hope, adding 27 with David Willey (9) be­fore shar­ing 45 runs off 37 balls with Jake Ball (28 off 22).

Mor­taza broke the re­sis­tance to help his side stay alive in the se­ries.

Ear­lier, Mah­mudul­lah held to­gether the in­nings after Eng­land cap­tain But­tler opted to bowl first.

Mor­taza’s late surge helped give the Bangladesh bowlers some­thing to de­fend.

Mor­taza added 69 runs off eight overs with Nasir Hos­sain after Bangladesh found it­self on 169-7.

Fast-bowler Chris Woakes had used short balls to good ef­fect to re­move the two open­ers –Tamim Iqbal (14) and Im­rul Kayes (11).

Ball dis­missed Sab­bir Rahman (3) to leave Bangladesh 39-3 be­fore Mah­mudul­lah and Mush­fiqur Rahim com­bined for a 50-run part­ner­ship.

Rahim played an in­ju­di­cious pull off Ball to throw away his wicket, leav­ing Mah­mudul­lah to dig in deep.

Mah­mudul­lah hit six fours in his 88-ball knock be­fore giv­ing away his wicket while try­ing to pad­dle-sweep against leg-spinner Rashid.

Mor­taza smashed a six on only the sec­ond ball he faced. He hit two fours and three sixes be­fore be­ing run out on the penul­ti­mate ball.

Mosad­dek Hos­sain contributed 29, while Nasir Hos­sain was 27 not out.

Fast bowlers Woakes and Ball, and leg-spinner Rashid, claimed two wick­ets apiece.
