The target of 114 was never going to threaten this English batting line-up. But they made it look like a walk in the park. The 53 runs that came from the first four overs really sealed the deal for them. Pietersen and Mustard came out hard right from the outset and took some chances. It paid off for them with Mustard scoring a 16-ball 27 and Pietersen scoring 17-ball 42. After the openers fell, Darren Maddy came in and anchored the rest of the chase. He hardly took a chance and kept knocking the ball around, ticking the score over in the process. He remained not out with a run-a-ball 32 in the end.

The seamers of the Bangladesh Legends had a horrendous start to the innings. Mohammad Sharif conceded 27 runs off his two overs and Alamghir Khan conceded just one run less. This was a hard start to recover from, given they were trying to defend a sub-par total. Abdur Razzak bowled an economical spell of 0 for 19, but he did not get a lot of support from the other end.

The match was really lost in the first 10 overs of the batting innings for the Bangladesh Legends. Once they were reduced to 55/5, it was really difficult to come back and put a real match of this. The English spinners tied them up and gave the upper hand to their side.

With two back-to-back comprehensive defeats, it will take quite an effort for the Bangladesh Legends to come back and fight for that position in that semifinal leg. Their next match will be against the Sri Lankan Legends in a couple of days' time.
England Legends have won the match by 7 wickets with six overs to spare!
