CWC15 LIVE - Aus Score 328, 20 runs many or 20 runs short vs Ind

#India vs #Australia
26th Mar 2015

Late burst from the lower order put Australia on a good score of 328 in 50 overs.
#ShaneWatson, #JamesFaulkner and #MitchellJohnson added valuable runs towards the end to push the score to challenging levels. At one stage Australia were pushed back by a flurry of wickets but thats where their late order came to the fore to score those important runs needed to finish well.

So, what does the score look like?
328 for 7

- Australia will feel 20 runs short considering they were motoring along at one stage.

- India will feel 20 runs more considering they had pulled the game brilliantly around the 40th over.

Game on here with India's strong batting lineup.

Aus: 328 for 7
Ind: 15 for 0, 4 overs

CWC 2015 LIVE - Ashwin's Miserly Spell Checks Ireland to 259

#Ireland vs #India, #Hamilton

#RaviAshwin's miserly spell  in the middle overs ensured India pulled things back to restrict Ireland to 259 all out in their Pool B game at #SeddonPark, Hamilton.

At 89 for 0 in 15 overs, the Irish were off to a brilliant start and looking for a mighty score to scare India. #MSDhoni, the India skipper, turned to Ashwin to stem runs and pick wickets. He did both.

He picked up #PaulStirling, getting him to loft a beautifully tossed delivery to long on safely into #AjinkyaRahane's hands.

#SureshRaina and #RavindraJadeja were then introduced from the other end.
They put on the brakes too. Raina castled #EdJoyce for 2 and the brakes were really on.

Then #WilliamPorterfield and #NiallObrien steadied the innings.
#PaulBalbirnie joined OBrien and started pushing the score again.

At 206 for 3, they were poised for a final onslaught.
Dhoni once again brought Ashwin into the attack and he delivered once again
He induced a top edge off Balbirnie to fineleg.

From then on, it was downhill for Ireland as they collapsed to 259 all out.
Superb spell of spin bowling.
10 - 1 - 38 - 2

CWC 2015 LIVE - Mahmadullah Pushes Bangladesh To 275 vs England

#Bangladesh v #England
9th Mar 2015

#Mahmadullah's rear guard #ton put Bangladesh in a fighting position against England in their do-or-die encounter at the #AdelaideOval. At the end of their stipulated 50 overs, they scored 275 for 7 to set up a mouth watering run chase under the beautifully lit Adelaide ground.

In the process, he went on to become the first Bangla batsman to score a #CWC century. He was brilliantly supported by #MushfiqurRahim (89). The two came together with the team in a big spot of bother, wobbling at 99 for 4 in the 21st over.

From then on, both of them took charge, steadied the innings before cutting lose. Given their form, the partnership was broken in the only way possible, a #runout. #ChrisWoakes accounting Mahmadullah with a direct hit for 103.

Game ON for England batsmen.
Their openers are IN.
We've already have a review situation where #MooenAli reviewed a OUT decision against him, lbw to #RobelHussain. Replays showed he was NOT OUT and decision was overturned. He was run out shortly after for 19.

#LIVE #Cricket #Score
Bangladesh: 275 for 7, 50 overs
England: 64 for 1, 13 overs)
#IanBell - 29*
#AlexHales - 14*
