West Indies in Australia T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Australia v West Indies

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 50 balls remaining)

Chris Gayle and Travis Dowling are the openers. Shaun Tait gets ready to bowl. Here we go.

Mukundh sends us our first feedback of the day: "Bumped into some of the aussie cricket team at the food court downstairs my office in sydney buying sandwiches and coffee - they were living in the hotel across the road. surprised that they were standing in queue with a bunch of us office workers and no one mobbed them or even asked for pics or autographs. wonder what would have happened to an indian team player buying lunch at a sandwich store on the afternoon of a cricket match in india."

Here are the teams. Daniel Christian's playing, so is Ryan Harris. Dirk Nannes and Travis Birt have been left out.

West Indies 1 Chris Gayle (capt), 2 Travis Dowlin, 3 Narsingh Deonarine, 4 Kieron Pollard, 5 Wavell Hinds, 6 Dwayne Smith, 7 Runako Morton, 8 Denesh Ramdin (wk), 9 Darren Sammy, 10 Nikita Miller, 11 Kemar Roach.

Travis Dowlin comes in for Lendl Simmons. Christian becomes only the second player with an aboriginal ancestry to play for Australia, after Jason Gillespie.

Australia 1 Shane Watson, 2 David Warner, 3 Michael Clarke (capt), 4 David Hussey, 5 Cameron White, 6 Brad Haddin (wk), 7 Daniel Christian, 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Steven Smith, 10 Ryan Harris, 11 Shaun Tait.

Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's coverage of the second Twenty20 international between West Indies and Australia being played in Sydney. West Indies have won the toss and opted to bat in a game they need to win to deprive Australia of an unbeaten summer. We'll get you the teams in a bit; in the meantime, do read the preview to this match.

0.2

Tait to Gayle, 1 run, short of a good length on the off, gets on the back foot and guides it behind point for a single

Matt J: "Its great to see Christian and Harris play, but I'm stunned that Nannes, the best bowler in the last game, has been dropped."

Three slips in place for Dowlin

0.3

Tait to Dowlin, 1 leg bye, stays on the pads, worked away behind square, gets a single

Far from a capacity crowd in Sydney, about half-full I would guess. A touch disappointing.

0.4

Tait to Dowlin, FOUR, that was a swipe, short on the off and he tried to dispatch it over midwicket, got a thick edge over the slips for a boundary

1.1

1.3

Harris to Gayle, 1 run, bowls it on a length on the off, gets across and defends it towards mid-off with a straight bat

Harris to Dowlin, no run, short of a length outside off and shoots away, Dowlin tries his best to nick it but fails

1.6

Harris to Dowlin, 2 runs, short outside off, pretty wide and he went for another pull and, not for the first time, miscued it, got it over the covers and fortunately for him, it landed in front of three fielders converging on that one

End of over 2 (4 runs) West Indies 14/0 (RR: 7.00)
TM Dowlin    8* (7b 1x4)      RJ Harris    1-0-4-0

Tait to Gayle, no run, slowed it down just a hint, short outside off and Gayle, in typical Gayle fashion, played his trademark whip with a leg up, but a very restrained one at that

2.4

Tait to Gayle, no run, senses a chance this time, full and wide, tried to thump that past the bowler, it just escaped the outside edge

2.5

Tait to Gayle, no run, bowled it full outside off, pushed inside the line and it went past him, the frustration grows

CH Gayle    2* (11b)      SW Tait    2-0-10-0
TM Dowlin    8* (7b 1x4)      RJ Harris    1-0-4-0

3.1

Harris to Dowlin, 1 run, another mistimed pull again lands him in trouble, shortish, tried to pull it past midwicket but got it a little high on the bat and it ended up landing just short of a diving Hussey at mid-on

3.2

Harris to Gayle, FOUR, That's the Gayle we know, full on the pads and he picks it up beautifully, clipping it over midwicket for a boundary

3.3

Harris to Gayle, SIX, a big one, just a jab that, short on middle and leg and he just helped it on its way over the deep square-leg boundary, Gayle's away

3.4

Harris to Gayle, OUT, but that's all we have from him, attempts a similar shot to a ball bowled short outside off, gets the top edge this time and Steve Smith, at third man, runs in a few yards to complete a well-judged catch

CH Gayle c Smith b Harris 12 (15m 14b 1x4 1x6) SR: 85.71

Gayle's had a disappointing time in the shorter version this summer, and he can't make amends anymore. Flashes of his old self every now and then, but none sustained for an extended period of time.

3.5

Harris to Dowlin, 1 run, driven off the back foot towards mid-on for a single

Morton to face, he did well in the last game

RS Morton c White b Harris 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

An excellent start for Harris on his debut though he did get a taste of what to expect in this format after that onslaught from Gayle at the start of the over. Very good comeback, Pollard is the new man in

End of over 4 (12 runs) West Indies 27/2 (RR: 6.75)

WW Hinds run out 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Poor stuff from West Indies here. The middle and lower orders are yet again left with the task of lending some respectability to their score.

8.4

9.3

Watson to Smith, 1 run, short of a length on the off, slaps it towards deep midwicket for a single

9.4

TM Dowlin    28* (29b 3x4)      MG Johnson    3-0-16-0

Gareth: "Woah Chris, whilst his form in the shorter form of the game has been mediocre to say the least, he did score two test centuries including a fantastic fighting 165*. I think the pressure of having Chanders and Sarwan out has really weighed him down."

Dan Christian to bowl his medium-pacers now. Big moment for him

Christian to Dowlin, 2 runs, bowls it on a good length on the off, chips it over the bowler's head for a couple between long-on and long-off

10.5

Christian to Dowlin, OUT, Steve Smith is outstanding in the outfield, he took two beauties in the last game but he's bettered them here, bowled on a length outside off and he swung it hard in the direction of deep square leg, Smith was a few yards inside the boundary and it forever seemed it would elude him but he timed his jump to perfection, held on, it popped out for a moment but he somehow juggled and clasped it while diving backwards, brilliant effort

TM Dowlin c Smith b Christian 31 (49m 32b 3x4 0x6) SR: 96.87

Christian has much to thank him for, for Smith has just given him his first wicket in T20s

10.6

Christian to Smith, 1 run

11.4

Smith to Deonarine, FOUR, Harris can't do a Steve Smith, tossed up outside off, strikes it cleanly over long-on but Harris did have a chance, tried to dive backwards but couldn't hold on, it would qualify as a drop, he was standing well inside the ropes there and didn't time his jump quite well enough, went through his hands

11.5

Smith to Deonarine, 2 runs, pushed off the front foot wide of midwicket for a couple of runs

11.6

DR Smith c Warner b Christian 8 (17m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Jack: "As much as I agree with giving Daniel Christian a run in the side, leaving out Nannes and Birt is a big mistake and its dangerous for these players. Harris just doesn't have the X-Factor that Nannes has, and considering the stutters of Australia's middle order in the last couple of Twenty20s, leaving out the batsman could come back to bite them."
