    "Could have been a wide if he had left it, just came off the toe end of the bat."


    Soumya c Maxwell b Watson 1 (Ban 2-1)

    Soumya Sarkar, what are you doing? Talk about hanging the bat out to dry. This is so wide from Shane Watson, Soumya almost needs a rod to reach it. A cut shot takes the very bottom of the bat, offering a simple catch to Glenn Maxwell at point. I know bad balls get wickets, but really...

    "This is a pitch where the ball will turn and we will see some bounce as well."

  4. Ban 2-0

    On the subject of cricket in strange places, I also had a small game of one hand, one bounce in a closed Heathrow airport a few years back. It passed the time while it snowed. Anyway, Coulter-Nile, the sort of haircut you get when you join the army, is tight on the off stump of the left-handed Soumya. Touch of extra bounce. Two singles from it. Good over.

    Australia are sporting a mostly black number. What's happened to the green and yellow? That's not Aussie gold, my friend. Bangladesh, in green with a smidge of red, have pushed their openers out of the door. Mithur Ali and Soumya Sarkar in the middle, Nathan Coulter-Nile has the ball. Two slips.

    Anthems time. The Bangladesh one is an epic, while Advance Australia Fair is one of my favourites. In fact, in anthem-terms, this is a real battle of the heavyweights.

    I don't need to remind how we've got this match covered, do I? Read this entertaining and informative live text and watch the best of the action as it happens by hitting the highlights tab at the top of the page. That's a much better way to spend your Monday afternoon than some office spreadsheet, or a dull double physics lesson, right?

  11. Post update

    It's not raining for Bangladesh, it's monsooning so hard they need an ark. Not only have bowlers Arafat Sunny and Taskin Ahmed been suspended, but gun batsman Tamim Iqbal is ill. Australia continue to overlook Aaron Finch, and bring in John Hastings for Ashton Agar.

  12. Australia win the toss and field

    It seems to be the set menu in the day-night games for the captain who wins the toss to field first. Steve Smith is no exception here. This Bengaluru ground is quite small, so expect the ropes to be cleared, but the turning pitch could offer a bit for the bowlers.
