Commonwealth Bank Series, 2006/07 / Commentary

Commonwealth Bank Series - 4th match

Australia v England

Australia won by 4 wickets (with 68 balls remaining)

4.2

Lee to Loye, SIX, Oh ho! what a shot! 34-years of frutstration released into that shot. 150 kmph delivery on the middle stump line, Loye does his special. Goes on the bended knee, and swings it over long leg. Sweeping a fast bowler! He does it in Twenty20, we were wondering whether he can pull it off in the international cricket. Obviously he can and how.

England 19/0   MB Loye 11* (10b 1x6)   B Lee 2.2-0-14-0

6.4

Lee to Strauss, SIX, top-edges a six! Sponsor that part of the blade Strauss! Banged in short and Strauss goes for a pull, is late on that stroke and the ball just flew over the cuckoo's nest. Over fine-leg. He has been dismissed a few times in the Test series going for this stroke.

England 36/0   AJ Strauss 15* (20b 1x6)   B Lee 3.4-0-27-0
