Champions League Twenty20, Group B: Sydney Sixers v Yorkshire at Cape Town, Oct 16, 2012
Sydney Sixers won by 8 wickets (with 67 balls remaining)
Played at Newlands, Cape Town (neutral venue)
16 October 2012 (20-over match)

Hazlewood to Gale, OUT, the leg stump has gone for a walk. Too much desperation and moving around in the crease from Yorkshire. Gale moves too far across, Hazelwood bowls a straight length ball, and he is gone

AW Gale b Hazlewood 8 (22m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Yorkshire 30/1   PA Jaques 21* (17b 4x4)   JR Hazlewood 1.5-0-3-1

Starc to Jaques, OUT, and Starc makes a good comeback after that ordinary first over. Short of a length, straight, Jaques tries to pull, gets a meaty top edge, and deep square leg gets a simple catch

PA Jaques c Thornely b Starc 21 (26m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 110.52

Yorkshire 30/2   JE Root 0* (1b)   MA Starc 1.2-0-13-1

Henriques to Root, OUT, another stump takes a walk. Root tries to pull, the ball pitches on off and stays a little low to knock the off stump back

JE Root b Henriques 25 (29m 24b 3x4 1x6) SR: 104.16

Yorkshire 62/3   A Lyth 7* (15b)   MC Henriques 1.4-0-8-1

Watson to Lyth, OUT, low full toss, and he has sliced it to point. Strange way to get out. It seemed to come off the cue end, but is not a bump ball

A Lyth c Rohrer b Watson 18 (38m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.00

Yorkshire 78/4   GS Ballance 5* (9b)   SR Watson 2.5-0-19-1

Cummins to Rashid, OUT, no need for a third umpire here. Rashid doesn't have much choice but to go after the bowling. The heave-ho to this length ball produces a soft edge through to Haddin

AU Rashid c †Haddin b Cummins 1 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Yorkshire 79/5   GS Ballance 5* (9b)   PJ Cummins 2.1-0-8-1

Watson to Hodgson, OUT, almost an identical ball, but ever so slightly slower and that does Hodgson in. Tries to carve it over the off side field again, but ends up scooping it into the air and Steve Smith jogs in from long off to swallow a simple chance

DM Hodgson c Smith b Watson 7 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Yorkshire 88/6   GS Ballance 7* (12b)   SR Watson 3.5-0-26-2

Cummins to Ballance, OUT, similar ball to the previous one, and Cummins puts Ballance out of his misery. A wild swipe to a back of a length delivery over the stumps offers up a simple top edge for Brad Haddin

GS Ballance c †Haddin b Cummins 8 (25m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.05

Yorkshire 90/7   Azeem Rafiq 0* (0b)   PJ Cummins 3.4-0-12-2

Starc to Azeem Rafiq, OUT, short and over off stump, and Rafiq plays a slightly puzzling shot to get himself out. Backs away and tries to uppercut it, but doesn't commit full, stopping his shot mid-swing. The result is a catch to third man.

Azeem Rafiq c Hazlewood b Starc 0 (7m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Yorkshire 92/8   RJ Sidebottom 2* (3b)   MA Starc 3.2-1-19-2

Starc to Patterson, OUT, full, fast, angled in from wide of the crease. Patterson is way late on the shot and the offstump is uprooted. Finishes a great day with the ball for Starc.

SA Patterson b Starc 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Yorkshire 96/9   RJ Sidebottom 3* (4b)   MA Starc 4-1-22-3
