Commentary
  • THANKS FOR JOINING US - Watch all the fallout from England's World Cup exit on Sky Sports World Cup and Sky Sports News HQ. There will be reaction on skysports.com as well.

  • 48

    England have been sent packing in the group stage for the first time since 1999. They have plenty to ponder and many questions will be asked about personnel, style etc. You have to give credit to Bangladesh, however, who have done their country proud.

  • Wicket: Broad is poleaxed by Rubel. Advantage Bangladesh.

  • 48

    Let's be frank, Broad has had a horrid World Cup - but he could be a hero here. A six is just what the doctor ordered. What will Taskin's reply be? It's a leg-side delivery, which trickles away for two leg byes. The youngster then hurls down some waste-high filth, which Broad angles away for one. There's an even bigger error when Woakes is dropped at long on by Tamim. There's panic everywhere, so neutrals must be loving this. I'm not...

  • 47

    Reasonable over from England but they are running out of wickets. At least Shakib is bowled out.

  • 46

    It was going so well. Bangladesh were getting nervous. Woakes whacked away a Taskin full toss and then unfurled an even better shot for four. The Tigers were leaving gaps in the field which England were exploiting. Then the wickets came.

  • Wicket: Dear, oh dear. New batsman Jordan dives to make his ground but with his willow bouncing up, he was dismissed when the throw hit the stumps. That is a big call from the third umpire after much deliberation.

  • Wicket: Is that the game? Bangladesh get the prized wicket of Buttler, who feathers Taskin behind.

  • 45

    Is Shakib Bangladesh's trump card? Not yet, at least. England chalk five more runs off their total. They require 47.

  • 44

    Woakes goes high but, thankfully, his heave flies over the infield and to safety. Rubel is hunting yorkers but Buttler - 'The Ice Man' according to Nasser - manages to flash a full one to the third-man boundary. The next ball is almost a carbon copy. Do YOU believe?

  • 43

    Buttler scores another delightful four to bring up a superb half-century. He is marshalling this run chase very responsibly.

  • 42

    Buttler clobbers away a Taskin full toss for two but the teenage seamer's riposte is decent, deceiving the batsman and whistling the ball past the edge. Time for extravagance, me thinks, and I'm right: a beautiful scoop over the keeper's head from Buttler. This lad's great to watch. Woakes joins the party with a slap for four.

  • 41

    Buttler lets fly with a majestic six over extra cover off Sunny and then runs two following a well-timed drill down the ground. Woakes' job is to stick around and support his pal. He's doing okay so far. A much-needed 11-run over.

  • 40

    Woakes' waft against Mortaza has Nick Knight worried but there is no edge. Woakes plays more solid cricket as the over progresses but solid might not cut the mustard on this occasion. What a big final 10 overs we have.

  • 39

    England now need less than a hundred, 98 to be precise. Keep the faith, people, keep the faith.

  • 38

    England are going to have to go big or go home here. The positive sign is that he Buttler has middled 80 per cent of his deliveries thus far. He doesn't middle a driveable Mortaza ball, though - this is a splice - but the bowler can't snaffle a tough catching chance.

  • 37

    Excellent scampering from Woakes and Buttler sees England end a sedate Shakib batch of six with three runs. Five from the over in total.

  • 36

    The powerplay is taken. Hold onto your hats, Adelaide crowd, it's going to rain sixes. Maybe not, but England do need to get a move on. There is an appeal from Bangladesh for a caught behind against Buttler but the noise was bat hitting ground, not ball hitting bat. Root wasn't so lucky.

  • Wicket: Mortaza is shunned when appealing to have Buttler caught behind but the finger is raised by umpire Reiffel when Root nicks off. England are in massive trouble!

  • 35

    Single, single, single, single, single, single: that's the over in a nutshell.

  • 34

    'Stay in the game' is Nasser Hussain's plea to England's batsmen. The run rate is creeping up but England are in milking mode at present against spinner Sunny.

  • 33

    Buttler assesses his options as the dangerous Shakib returns. England's 'finisher' is content to block the first and nudge a single off the second. What will Root's method be? We'll find out when the sightscreen is in the right place. He pushes through the mid-off region for one and Buttler does the same next up to bring up the 150.

  • 32

    Root dabs to third man for one allowing Buttler to then drill Taskin through extra cover for four. Buttler unfurls an even better cover drive later in the piece before ducking out of the way of a bouncer. He looks at ease. Shame many of his mates haven't...

  • 31

    It's over to you, Joseph Edward Root. Oh how England need another one of your special innings. Buttler is the Yorkshireman's latest comrade and looks to be in decent nick if his solid opening few drives are a yardstick. A lovely swivel and pull garners Buttler a couple, before a whip behind square yields one more. Root collects a single off the last as well. Four from the over.

  • 30

    Root misses out on a couple of opportunities to add further to his boundary count as he twice drives firmly down the ground only for Taskin to field well off his own bowling on both occasions. He works the third ball of the over away for a single but it only brings Taylor on to strike and his wicket adds to England's misery.

  • Wicket: England don't just look like they're heading to defeat here, it looks like it's going to be a fourth embarrassingly heavy defeat that is headed their way - Taylor is next to depart, with a loose shot outside off, edging Taskin to Kayes at slip.

  • 29

    Where did that shot come from? Root gives no credit to the recent wickets as he disdainfully pulls Rubel to the midwicket boundary. He has the perfect temperament for this situation, Root, so hopefully more shots like that one fill the final 20 or so overs for England.

  • 28

    These two young guns produced a great partnership in one of England's two wins in the tour of Sri Lanka before Christmas that suggested there's hope in England's one-day future. They need to do something similar here otherwise their World Cup will be over and done with.

  • 27

    If anything sums up England's muddled thinking in one-day cricket it was that over. Bell and Root had been batting a little too cautiously in the preceding overs, and it forces false shots with the required rate rising from Bell and Morgan. England in real trouble here now.

  • Wicket: What are you doing Eoin Morgan? He goes for the big shot for six with only his third ball. He does middle his pull shot but it just flies low and flat into the hands of the waiting Shakib in the deep.

  • Wicket: Definite concern now for England but it's not spin that's their undoing, it's pace. Rubel Hossain fires in a sharp bouncer which rises on Bell and he edges it behind when looking to uppercut over third man.

  • 26

    Bell dabs one away through third man for two and then tries to repeat the dose the next ball but very nearly gets a thin edge on it through to the keeper. He's guilty of getting out to that shot too often in one-day cricket when well set Bell. It's a good scoring area for him but it can get him into trouble.

  • 25

    Root - who has struggled for timing since coming to the crease - gets one away that is more reminiscent of his supreme hundred in the last game against Sri Lanka as he crunches one firmly through midwicket for four. Halfway stage for England - they need another 158 to win.

  • 24

    Mortaza gets through another over relatively unscathed - frustrating for England as they were just looking to target him before the wicket and now he's on top. Although Bell does show some intent with the final ball, charging down the track and launching him over long-on only for it to plug inside the boundary and they have to run three instead.

  • 23

    Rubel Hossain comes back into the attack but even with his extra pace on the ball, England don't look to attack just yet. They're quite content to just rebuild at the moment following the wicket of Hales.

  • 22

    Root gets one streakily away for a single which only just evades the man at gully, almost gifting Mortaza a second wicket. Only two runs come from the over.

  • 21

    Bell continues to look untroubled at the other end as he eases through to his fifty. England's hundred also comes up in the over.

  • 20

    Nine runs come from the military medium of Mortaza before the wicket of Hales. It looked to be a poor move by the captain to bring himself back into the attack with spin keeping things tight before hand, but consecutive Hales boundaries is a price they're more than willing to pay in return for his wicket two balls later.

  • Wicket: England have lost another - Alex Hales departs after just hitting his two most emphatic boundaries of the day. He drives at a full one from Mortaza and gets a thin edge through to a giddy Mushfiqur behind the stumps.

  • 19

    Sabbir Rahman comes on for his first over. He's a legbreak bowler so England continue to be attacked by spin - these two comfortably negotiate five singles from the over though, rotating the strike well.

  • 18

    Another tight over from Shakib who has gone for just 10 runs from his opening four overs. Hales looks like he's itching to come down the track but he resists the temptation for now.

  • 17

    England need a run-a-ball to keep their hopes of a World Cup quarter-final spot alive. Scrap that, they need fewer, with Hales squirting away for three from the final ball.

  • 16

    Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey is an old adage and also the way England are going about their business. They have no need to be gung-ho at this stage with plenty of overs and batsmen still to come.

  • 15

    Bell dispatches Sunny over mid-wicket for another boundary as the dulcet tones of Bumble and Nasser Hussain are heard in the commentary box. England are one run ahead - and have lost one fewer wickets - than Bangladesh at this stage.

  • 14

    England deal in singles and dot balls in Taskin's second over. A platform is being constructed.

  • 13

    If Bell feels guilty for Moeen's demise, the best thing for him to do would be to score a biggie in Adelaide. He adds four more to his total with a gorgeous carve through the off-side.

  • 12

    Hales versus pace - these poor jokes will cease in a minute, I promise - and the recalled England star edges Taskin Ahmed away for four past the wicketkeeper. 'Good one-day shot' cries my boss, I still think it was streaky!

  • 11

    Bangladesh sense blood here and have myriad - okay, two plus the keeper - fielders in close. Hales does not look out of his depth, though.

  • 10

    There's almost some Sunny delight - sorry, couldn't resist - as a sharp delivery angles in towards Bell's pads but the England man gets a vital inside edge on the cherry. A Hales single then brings up the fifty.

  • 9

    Shakib offers up more spin, spitting, dangerous spin. England deal with it okay, though, as they begin the rebuilding process.

  • 8

    Spin is into the attack through Arafat Sunny but it's Moeen and Bell's heads in a spin as their dithering sends Moeen on his way. Hales, on World Cup debut, smacks a morale-boosting four before the over is done and dusted.

  • Wicket: Moeen and Bell have a major communication breakdown. Moeen wants a single but Bell doesn't, and the left hander's despairing dive to make his ground is futile. People wanted Hales. Here he is.

  • 7

    This trial by spin the pundits spoke about at half time has failed to materialise as yet, with Bangladesh going with pace at both ends. Bell loves the ball coming onto his bat and proceeds to drill three boundaries from the over. I sense twirl is imminent...

  • 6

    Moeen has reigned himself in since his earlier scares, defending stoutly rather than wafting his bat. Bell is finding rhythm, though, pulling Rubel away to the fence. Keep them coming, Ian.

  • 5

    That's more like it, Belly! A cracking lofted drive over cover brings the Midlander his first boundary of the day. The pigeons - who have a fairly unpronounceable Latin name, according to Bumble - enjoyed that shot as much as I did.

  • 4

    Bell is not at his flowing best yet, with a flash through gully his latest unconvincing stroke. A suck-in of the cheeks shows you he was worried. Moeen gets another slice of luck later in Rubel's over, inside edging just past his stumps for four.

  • 3

    Bell is eager to get off the mark but is thwarted by some snappy fielding from Bangladesh, until a sweetly-timed drive down the ground yields one. Moeen defends the last ball of the over.

  • 2

    Moeen isn't going to die wondering here. As ever he's full of attacking intent but it's not quite coming off at the moment - a streaky drive gets the edge and flies wide of slip for four and there's an lbw shout which is given but rightly overturned when he reviews and it's shown to be pitching outside leg. In between he does crunch one through backward point for four in far more convincing fashion.

  • 1

    An almost calamitous start to England's chase - Moeen eases one through the off-side for a couple but then plays a very loose shot the next ball, looking to heave one over to leg but a thick outside edge flies over slip. Bell plays out the rest of the over in much calmer fashion.

  • 50

    Woakes is told to bowl the last. He is clobbered for four by Bangladesh skipper Mortaza in a mediocre over but not too much damage is done. England won't find chasing 276 easy but, come on, let's be confident...

  • 49

    Jordan, buoyed no doubt by catching out Mushfiqur, bowls the penultimate and it is 'excellent' according to Sky Sports' Michael Atherton. A wide is the only real blemish, the wicket the obvious highlight.

  • Wicket: Sabbir tries to hurry things along at the death but only succeeds in plinking Jordan to the skipper at mid-off. England have got a bit of momentum now, you would say.

  • 48

    I can safely say Sabbir won't be getting three figures but he welcomes back Broad by bludgeoning him over the on-side for a maximum. Broad does have something to smile about later on, though, when he pockets his first wicket of the match

  • Wicket: No ton for Mushfiqur, who skies a Broad cutter into the grateful hands of Jordan. The big Sussex lad shelled a catch earlier on today but makes no mistake here.

  • 47

    England have dragged the run-scoring back a tad but with Mushfiqur still in and firing they could be chasing quite a few. The Bangladeshi smokes a sumptuous boundary in an otherwise spiffing Jordan over.

  • 46

    Bangladesh don't get much joy in this Anderson set of six. Good line and pace variations from the experienced quick, who finishes with 2-45 from his 10 overs.

  • Wicket: The centurion dabs to short third man but Woakes hurls towards the non-striker's end and the ball clatters into the stumps before Mahmudullah can make his ground.

  • 45

    Woakes is struggling to find his length here and is lucky that a high full toss is not firstly called a no-ball and then whacked away. The Warwickshire man's second is worse and called wide, but it seems like he is aiming full, an approach England have neglected for much of this tournament. Full isn't always the way to go, however... Mushfiqur annihilates an over-pitched ball to the fence and is then caught out by Joe Root of a front-foot no-ball. The free hit is then plinked away. Fun over, that.

  • 44

    Broad, who Bob Willis would have axed for this match, is on to try and nab a wicket. Mahmudullah isn't going anywhere just yet, though, and collects his first ODI ton in his 114th match when Ian Bell fumbles in the field. Bangladesh were in dire straits when he arrived at the crease but they are well placed now.

  • 43

    Mahmudullah is the story here but Mushfiqur is playing a vital knock, too. A pull to the ropes is glorious, while an Anderson full toss is then blasted through extra cover for four more.

  • 42

    Moeen, after a bit of scampering in the outfield, is asked to unleash his twirl once again. Mushfiqur takes two and then one to bring his century-seeking mate onto strike. A single is taken to deep mid-on before a sweeping Mushfiqur pierces the field and notches another boundary. Can Mahmudullah get his hundred now? Nope. A single suffices.

  • 41

    England's gun bowler, Anderson, returns. He started off this innings in cracking style and his team could do with him skittling out a few more Bangladesh batsmen here. Messrs Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur secure the hundred partnership and the side reach 200 shortly after. Mahmudullah flashes at one outside off stump and the ball beats Moeen to the fence. He is one blow away from three figures but is happy to defend Anderson's last.

  • 40

    Woakes opens up with a short-pitched gift which Mahmudullah wallops away behind square on the leg side to enter the nineties. Is Bangladesh's first World Cup ton looming? Mushfiqur reaches a milestone, though, notching his third fifty in four innings when he goes aerial over mid-wicket. Good over for The Tigers.

  • 39

    Mahmudullah, whose eyes are probably lighting up at the prospect of a ton, hacks Jordan into the on side for a single off the first ball. Jordan responds well, generating some in-swing, but then bowls a loose wide. The movement is back next up, though, as Jordan whacks Mahmudullah's pad. Shame for England that it was drifting down leg. Another single ends proceedings.

  • 38

    Although this looks to be a nice batting track, England certainly will be keen to get another wicket soon as the longer these two stay together, the tougher their target will be. But at the moment the attack isn't causing these two too many scares.

  • 37

    Bangladesh are going about this nicely - not over-hitting but still finding the boundary. Mushfiqur this time fetches a fuller Jordan delivery from outside off and sweeping it away powerfully for four more to square leg.

  • 36

    It's not a great start from the returning Broad as Mahmudallah distainfully creams a full delivery through the covers for four off his first ball. But he recovers well with only three further runs scored in the over.

  • 35

    Anderson comes back into bowl the final over before the batting powerplay. It's a tight one with just four runs from it but you sense the next five overs will have a big bearing on England's stay at this World Cup.

  • 34

    These two rotate the strike for five singles off Moeen's eighth over. Drinks are called.

  • 33

    The 150 is the next milestone to be reached by Bangladesh but just two singles come from a tight Woakes over. When will they look to put their foot on the pedal with the batting powerplay due in two overs time?

  • 32

    Moeen is back on the field and into the attack. But Mushifiqur - nice and settled now - slaps him away with a slog-sweep over cow corner for four and this pair go through to their fifty partnership by the over's end.

  • 31

    Woakes gets through another over. He's not looked as threating today as he has at times earlier in the tournament but it's another economical over at least.

  • 30

    Moeen Ali has apparently gone off the field, which could be worrying. So England turn to the spin of Joe Root for the time being. Six runs come from his over in ones and twos. With 20 overs to go, what will Bangladesh be targeting here? Will 270 be enough?

  • 29

    Woakes comes back into the attack and gets through a fuller and tidier over with just three runs coming from it.

  • 28

    England just need to be a little careful here. They obviously have a plan in place with the short ball being used regularly since Mushfiqur's arrival to the crease, but he gets one away though third man for four off Broad and England must be sure to change their plans or mix things up if the short ball doesn't prove threatening.

  • 27

    Another short ball - this time from Jordan - gets the treatment as Mahmudullah hooks over long leg for six. It's a bit of a false shot though, with it coming off the top edge of the bat - but it is still enough to fly over the boundary.

  • 26

    Not wicket on Nelson as Broad comes on to replace Moeen in a somewhat surprising move considering the spinner has just picked up a wicket. Broad's over is quite short to Mushfiqur, so perhaps a ploy from England.

  • 25

    Bangladesh get their first boundary for a while as Mahmudullah gets the final ball of Jordan's over away for four. It's a fantastic shot as he drives past the man at cover who can't get a hand to it. It brings up Nelson - can it bring another wicket for England?

  • 24

    Another excellent over from Moeen - England's most economical bowler in the tournament so far - just two runs from it.

  • 23

    Bangladesh pass the hundred mark and Mahmudullah brings up his fifty in the same Jordan over.

  • 22

    Brilliant over from Moeen who has done well since taking a bit of tap early on in his spell. Mahmudullah will again have to look to rebuild here with the in-form Mushfiqur Rahim.

  • Wicket: Another wicket falls! The ever-dangerous Shakib Al Hasan falls cheaply. A fantastic delivery from Moeen, who gets one to drift in before turning it away. Shakib follows it and edges it straight to the grateful Root at slip.

  • 21

    He didn't look good in his first couple of overs and didn't look all that impressive in that one, but Chris Jordan just has that wicket-taking knack. He's a useful bowler to use in short bursts for England when they want a wicket rather than long spells. And it has worked here.

  • Wicket: Important breakthrough for England and it's Jordan who gets the wicket. A skiddy short ball takes Sarkar's glove as he looks to take evasive action and Buttler takes the catch. A good innngs from Sarkar who played some lovely shots during his stay.

  • 20

    Moeen races through his over, a better one than his last, as just four runs come from it. A bit of pressure starting to be placed on Bangladesh now with the runs drying up a tad.

  • 19

    A better over from Woakes as just three runs come from it. England will want to put the brakes on this partnership as much as possible.

  • 18

    Moeen comes back on to bowl following drinks and is brutally dispatched by Sarkar over midwicket for a fantastic six when one is dropped slightly too short. England will be starting to get a bit twitchy here as these two continue on their merry way.

  • 17

    There's almost a run-out with the first ball of the over with a mix-up between this pair. A direct hit might have been close but the stumps aren't hit so Bangladesh survive. Sarkar makes the most of the let off by pushing Woakes' next ball for four through backward point. Another classy effort from the left-hander.

  • 16

    Better stuff from Moeen's over - just two runs from it. He tucks the batsman up and cramps them for room with quite a legside line.

  • 15

    Where did that come from? Mahmudullah cracks one for six as Woakes strays too short and is clubbed away over the cow corner fence. Nine runs come from another very good over for Bangladesh.

  • 14

    It's a double change in the bowling as Moeen Ali comes on for our first look at spin for the day. England will see a lot of it later in their innings so they'll be interested to see how dangerous Moeen looks on this surface. From his first over, there doesn't seem to be too many daemons in the wicket.

  • 13

    Chris Woakes comes on to bowl. He gets through a tidy over but Sarkar then plays a sublime drive through the covers for four with the final ball. Shot of the day so far and it brings up the fifty partnership.

  • 12

    Well, not to say I told you so, but this pair have suddenly raced Bangladesh through to fifty with 15 coming from Jordan's second over. Sarkar and Mahmudullah each pick up a boundary and a couple of threes. It forces a change of approach from the captain as Morgan starts to shift the slip cordon elsewhere.

  • 11

    These two are just started to look nice and comfortable at the crease, not that England will be overly concerned at this stage. But the partnership is ticking along nicely with five runs from the over.

  • 10

    Jordan's first over is a long one, with a couple of his trademark wides mixed in. Understandable really though given he hasn't bowled in a match situation for a while.

  • 9

    Another stroke of fortune for Mahmudullah who gets one away for four with an inside edge which misses the stumps and runs away to fine leg for four.

  • 8

    Just three runs from an uneventful Broad over, these two just bedding in here knowing they need to build a big partnership for the likes of Shakib to benefit from later in the order.

  • 7

    Sarkar, who has looked the most assured of the Bangladeshi batsmen during his albeit brief stay so far, gets another four away as he steers a fractionally short Anderson delivery through backward point.

  • 6

    Mahmudullah gets a second Bangladesh boundary away but it's a streaky one as a full length Broad delivery which he pushes at, flies through the gully region down to third man for four.

  • 5

    Anderson gets through a maiden over, England very much keeping the pressure on these two at the crease.

  • 4

    Broad gets through another probing over - he draws another edge out of Sarkar but this one is a leading edge which flies safely over backward point.

  • 3

    Fantastic start this from England, you really feel they are keen to send a message with the way they're starting this game, knowing they've drastically underachieved so far in the tournament. Just two more runs are added to the score from Anderson's over.

  • Wicket: England do pick up their second wicket and it's Jimmy again. So the Jordan drop doesn't do too much damage as Iqbal doesn't add to his score any further - poking at another full one from Anderson to Root at second slip.

  • 2

    Stuart Broad almost picks up a second early strike but Jordan drops Iqbal this time at third slip. A difficult chance for Jordan but given his ability in the field and the slips in particular, he'd be annoyed that didn't stick. Sarkar gets one away for Bangladesh's first boundary the next ball with a beautiful drive through the covers for four.

  • 1

    So a fantastic start for Anderson and for England. Eoin Morgan is rewarded early for an attacking field with three slips in. Is that an indication of a new, aggressive approach from England?

  • Wicket: England get an early breakthrough and it is Anderson who gets an early wicket. A classic pitched up delivery from him which Imrul Kayes had to play at and Chris Jordan takes a good catch at third slip.

  • England v Bangladesh - Welcome to our live blog of England's crucial World Cup match against Bangladesh in Adelaide. England have won the toss and have chose to bowl first, so will be chasing under lights later on. The other news is England have made two changes - Alex Hales comes in for Gary Ballance at three and Chris Jordan replaces Chris Jordan in the bowling attack.
