Champions League Twenty20, 2nd Semi-Final: Sydney Sixers v Titans at Centurion, Oct 26, 2012
Champions League Twenty20 - 2nd semi final
Sydney Sixers won by 2 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)
26 October 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

"Better to chase in threatening weather, as you have the advantage of tracking the D/L situation." Trevor, I suppose they want to put Sixers under the pressure of chasing. Right. Time is now. Henry Davids and Jacques Rudolph are in. Josh Hazlewood will bowl the first over. A green carpet on the adjacent pitch

5.25pm Firdose has done her investigation from the lovely Supersport press box. She has found out Sixers have got the home dressing room, because they finished top in their group. Not sure Titans would have liked it

5.20pm "Evening Sid, How will they use the spare day? If they can get a 5 overs game today, will they go ahead or say not we want a proper match tomorrow ?" Greetings Amjad. The first endeavour will be to get a game tonight, no matter how short. But as we speak, Firdose is telling me the skyline is clearing nicely

5.15pm It's a little lukewarm here. No bizarre - controversial if this was a tournament people really cared about - selections to dissect. On the weather front, it seems to have cleared nicely where the rain usually comes from

5pm Still no rain. Charmed life but life nonetheless. The coin at least is going up on time. Weird that home captain, Martin van Jaarsveld, called at the toss (whisper it, but this is considered a home game for Sydney Sixers because they topped their group - stranger than fiction). Does this mean, then, that Sixers get the dressing room Titans always do? Anyway, MVJ has called it right.

Titans will bat first. A bolt of lighting in the background as van Jaarsveld say they will have a bat. Titans have picked the same XI as their first two games

Brad Haddin was not quite sure what to do if he won the toss, so he is okay with losing the toss and bowling. The only change they have made is, bring Ben Rohrer in for Peter Nevill

Firdose Moonda tells me the clouds are moving away, bypassing Supersport Park. She reckons we will have a game tonight

4.50pm We could be teasing the weather today. It's been raining on the way from Jo'burg to Centurion, but nothing yet at Supersport Park. The pitch for the match tonight looks bright brown. And cracked. Experts are expecting a two-paced wicket, where 140-150 might be competitive

4.45pmThreatening grey skies have threatened this match, but I am being reliably informed they might be blowing away a bit. There's every chance the storm may miss us. A warm welcome to the second semi-final of Champions League T20


Hazlewood to Rudolph, no run, length ball, swinging into the pads, Haddin does well to take the deflection off the pad


Hazlewood to Rudolph, no run, dug in short, no room, defended to cover


Hazlewood to Rudolph, 1 run, flicked away off the hip to get off the mark


Hazlewood to Davids, 1 run, pulled away from outside off, O'Keefe misfields at square leg. He is mic-ed up, but is not doing any interviews at the moment


Hazlewood to Rudolph, no run, punched away to cover

"It's really late in Sydney, but I know of plenty of people who have stayed up (and off the booze) to watch this game. Can't express how proud we are of our boys!" What sacrifice, Gareth


Hazlewood to Rudolph, OUT, Rudolph is off. This is dug in short again, he gets room to swing his arms, but gets under the cut, and it flies off the outer half to the left of third man where Michael Lumb takes a safe catch

JA Rudolph c Lumb b Hazlewood 1 (3m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

End of over 1 (2 runs) Titans 2/1 (RR: 2.00)

    • H Davids 1 (1b)
    • JR Hazlewood 1-0-2-1

Heino Kuhn gets a promotion. Here's Starc to him


Starc to Kuhn, no run, starts with an accurate length ball, Kuhn is squared up in defence


Starc to Kuhn, no run, full and wide, squeezed to point


Starc to Kuhn, no run, full again, on off, sliding away a little, defended to the bowler


Starc to Kuhn, FOUR, wide length ball, and he opens up slightly to drive this on the up, through extra cover


Starc to Kuhn, 1 run, short of a length, angling away, steered away for one

No swing back in for Starc so far


Starc to Davids, no run, short of a length, angling away, defended by Davids

End of over 2 (5 runs) Titans 7/1 (RR: 3.50)

    • H Davids 1 (2b)
    • HG Kuhn 5 (5b 1x4)
    • MA Starc 1-0-5-0
    • JR Hazlewood 1-0-2-1

"Aussies staying off the beer on a Friday night?!? Whatever next? Walking? No, surely a step too far." Yo, Aussies, it is a much more agreeable time zone for James and others in England


Hazlewood to Kuhn, no run, short, rising towards the chest, bounces over his cutting bat


Hazlewood to Kuhn, no run, short of a length, Davids jumps up a little to try to punch, but is beaten outside off


Hazlewood to Kuhn, no run, that's slippery. Short of a length, 140ks, angling in, hits him on the thigh pad

The sun is out now


Hazlewood to Kuhn, FOUR, short of a length again, Davids flashes at it, and gets a thick edge over slip


Hazlewood to Kuhn, no run, tries to cut a shortish delivery, but it kisses off the wicket and bounces over the bat

"Steady on, i walked to the pub once." The question, Gareth, is if you walked back or were dragged back


Hazlewood to Kuhn, FOUR, nice short-arm pull through midwicket. From outside off, but that will do nicely

End of over 3 (8 runs) Titans 15/1 (RR: 5.00)

    • HG Kuhn 13 (11b 3x4)
    • H Davids 1 (2b)
    • JR Hazlewood 2-0-10-1
    • MA Starc 1-0-5-0

A beautiful evening in Centurion now


Starc to Davids, SIX, length ball, on leg, no swing, angling towards off, and he lofts it over long-on for a six. Lovely clean connection


Starc to Davids, 1 leg bye, short of a length, beats the bat, but they steal a leg-bye


Starc to Kuhn, no run, full, on the pads, bunted towards short midwicket


Starc to Kuhn, no run, short of a length, no room, defended to leg

"Nope, I got a lift back. This nice gentleman in a blue uniform, in a car with blue and red flashing lights. Don't remember the name of the taxi company..." Good on them, Gareth. That's what we pay taxes for


Starc to Kuhn, no run, tries to pull, but the ball sits up and comes off slow, and beats him to hit him in the rib


Starc to Kuhn, OUT, top of off. Proverbial. This is short of a length, and this time it skids through a little. Kuhn tries the swivel-pull but it sneaks under the bat to kiss the timber. Starc extends his lead at top of wickets chart

HG Kuhn b Starc 13 (12m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 86.66

End of over 4 (7 runs) Titans 22/2 (RR: 5.50)

    • H Davids 7 (4b 1x6)
    • MA Starc 2-0-11-1
    • JR Hazlewood 2-0-10-1

"Scorchers landed in Perth this afternoon. By all reports, they flew back from the pub" John, did they scorch everything along the way?

Brad Haddin is getting medical attention. He seems to have hurt his thumb. That was two balls ago when the ball hit Kuhn and lobbed just short of him. The thumb is taped, a pill is taken, and Haddin is back. He might now have to collect a thunderbolt or three from Pat Cummins. One wide slip in place


Cummins to Davids, no run, short of a length, outside off, punched away nicely, but finds short cover


Cummins to Davids, FOUR, another nice punch, and this time he finds the gap too. On his back toe with his front foot in the air, and meets this on top of the bounce to crunch this past cover


Cummins to Davids, 2 runs, angling in, clipped off the pads


Cummins to Davids, 2 byes, and he tries a wild pull first ball. This ball is short of a length to begin with, and then stays low too. Bounces short of Haddin again, and through it goes


Cummins to Davids, 1 run, picked away off the pads for one

Captain MVJ is in now


Cummins to van Jaarsveld, 1 run, length ball, angling in, pushed into the leg side for one

End of over 5 (10 runs) Titans 32/2 (RR: 6.40)

    • M van Jaarsveld 1 (1b)
    • H Davids 14 (9b 1x4 1x6)
    • PJ Cummins 1-0-8-0
    • MA Starc 2-0-11-1

"@Gareth... Were they Queensland PD taxi company? They do do good charity once in a while." HK, they provide free accommodation too


Starc to van Jaarsveld, no run, huge lbw appeal, but it just didn't seem like swinging enough, which means it pitched just outside leg. This was hitting him in front of leg, but it had to be swinging for it to have pitched within the stumps


Starc to van Jaarsveld, FOUR, just short of a length, going with the angle, and he stands tall to punch it between cover and cover-point


Starc to van Jaarsveld, OUT, this seems to have stopped at van Jaarsveld. He thinks this is a length ball that he can drive at, he is early into the shot and all he manages is a lob to short cover

M van Jaarsveld c Cummins b Starc 5 (8m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

"Some of us Aussies are waiting to finish work before heading to the pub to watch this! Those of us in the frigid cold lands of England that is..." Oh the twist, David Wright.

Farhan Behardien is the new batsman in


Starc to Behardien, 2 runs, nicely played first up. Leans into a full delivery, drives it wide of mid-off, where a misfield allows them a second


Starc to Behardien, no run, Starc has gone to the wrong end. Pushed to the right of Starc, who fields it well, and Farhan has to send Davids back, who slips while turning. Starc, though, doesn't notice it, and goes at the striker's end, where Behardien is safe

Round the stumps


Starc to Behardien, 1 run, length ball, angling in, worked away for one

End of over 6 (7 runs) Titans 39/3 (RR: 6.50)

    • F Behardien 3 (3b)
    • H Davids 14 (9b 1x4 1x6)
    • MA Starc 3-0-18-2
    • PJ Cummins 1-0-8-0

"This has to be the best pace attack of any side below national level and is pretty close to being the best at any level. Australia could do a lot worse than make these three young guys their test pace bowlers." True, John. Although I'd love to follow a four-day match on a spicy wicket between Victoria and NSW. That's Siddle, Pattinson and mates v these three

Steve O'Keefe on now


O'Keefe to Behardien, 1 run, angling into the pads, worked away for one


O'Keefe to Davids, no run, flat and quick, defended to cover


O'Keefe to Davids, 1 run, pushed to sweeper-cover for one


O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, jumps out of the crease, is beaten in flight, gets an inside edge onto the pad


O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, flat, just outside off, punched to the bowler


O'Keefe to Behardien, 2 runs, walks down the wicket to punch this uppishly, and it goes just wide of the diving straight extra cover

End of over 7 (4 runs) Titans 43/3 (RR: 6.14)

    • F Behardien 6 (7b)
    • H Davids 15 (11b 1x4 1x6)
    • SNJ O'Keefe 1-0-4-0
    • MA Starc 3-0-18-2

"Captain MVJ: any relation to M Vijay?" Or MJ, James

Moises Henriques to bowl now


Henriques to Davids, 1 run, short of a length, angling in, pushed to long-on for one


Henriques to Behardien, 1 run, length ball, angling in, stays low, but worked away for one


Henriques to Davids, 3 runs, lovely stuff from Lumb. That is youtube stuff. Pushed to him towards deep point, and when he throws the ball doesn't leave his hand. When it does, it falls behind him

"oh baby, the man of the MO-ment into the attack!" Chappo, he looks rather like Ned Flanders now


Henriques to Behardien, 1 run, dabbed away to third man


Henriques to Davids, 1 run, punched down the ground to long-off

"Wouldn't be surprised if the Aussie pace attack in a few years was Pattinson, Cummins, Starc and Hazlewood. Looks a good well balanced attack to me." Yes, James, left-arm swing of Starc provides the perfect mix


Henriques to Behardien, no run, length ball, just outside off, defended to cover

End of over 8 (7 runs) Titans 50/3 (RR: 6.25)

    • F Behardien 8 (10b)
    • H Davids 20 (14b 1x4 1x6)
    • MC Henriques 1-0-7-0
    • SNJ O'Keefe 1-0-4-0

O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, pushed into the leg side for one


O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, walks across to punch this down the ground, but can't beat a diving straight midwicket


O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, length ball, pushed back to him


O'Keefe to Behardien, 2 runs, cut away to the left of sweeper-cover, will come back for two


O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, down the wicket, gets too close to the pitch of the ball, and his hard drive goes back to O'Keefe

End of over 9 (3 runs) Titans 53/3 (RR: 5.88)

    • F Behardien 10 (15b)
    • H Davids 20 (15b 1x4 1x6)
    • SNJ O'Keefe 2-0-6-0
    • MC Henriques 1-0-7-0

"Moises Henriques with his tache looks like Arthur Bostrom from Allo Allo - "Good moaning"" Allo, Capt Mike Yates

Hazlewood is back. A long hold-up because they are not happy with the bowler's landing area. Hazlewood might not even bowl now. This is a long interruption. The problem is where the back foot lands. Hazlewood seems satisfied, and will bowl now


Hazlewood to Davids, no run, length ball, just outside off, extra bounce, beats his drive

Says Priyadarshi Mishra: "I am surprised Titans didn't try to utilize Van der Merwe's explosive batting as an option in the powerplay. He could have attacked this potent seam attack of Sixers."


Hazlewood to Davids, 1 run, driven down to long-off for one

"Mike Yates? Officer Crabtree? My childhood is coming back on Cricinfo!" Michael Perera, this site is child's play


Hazlewood to Behardien, 1 run, another drive to long-off


Hazlewood to Davids, 1 run, walks across to drag this from outside off, gets a single to deep square

"If only Freddie Flintoff did that when he ran out Ricky Ponting" The wrong end, John?


Hazlewood to Behardien, no run, short of a length, angling in, cramps him up, pushed to mid-on

Is this match doomed to go into overtime or what? Now the seam on the ball has come apart. We are getting a new one


Hazlewood to Behardien, 2 runs, down the wicket, turns this into a length ball, chips it wide of sweeper-cover for two

End of over 10 (5 runs) Titans 58/3 (RR: 5.80)

    • F Behardien 13 (18b)
    • H Davids 22 (18b 1x4 1x6)
    • JR Hazlewood 3-0-15-1
    • SNJ O'Keefe 2-0-6-0

O'Keefe to Davids, SIX, Davids decides to take the spinner on, and he does that in style. Down the wicket, not close to the pitch of this wide length ball, but that's just as well because that allows him room to swing his arms. Hits the sight screen


O'Keefe to Davids, no run, quicker, defended back


O'Keefe to Davids, 2 runs, out of his crease again, and chips him over extra cover


O'Keefe to Davids, no run, flatter again, but punched straight to extra cover


O'Keefe to Davids, 1 run, driven down to long-on


O'Keefe to Behardien, no run, down the wicket, beaten in flight, ends up pushing this to short midwicket

End of over 11 (9 runs) Titans 67/3 (RR: 6.09)

    • F Behardien 13 (19b)
    • H Davids 31 (23b 1x4 2x6)
    • SNJ O'Keefe 3-0-15-0
    • JR Hazlewood 3-0-15-1

"No! If only Freddie threw the ball behind him instead of running out Punter. Might have changed the course of history" Ahh, gotcha John. Hazlewood to finish off


Hazlewood to Davids, no run, kicks off a length and bounces over his slogging bat


Hazlewood to Davids, 2 runs, punched down the ground, wide of long-off, comes back for two


Hazlewood to Davids, no run, driven on the up, in the air, but it falls short of extra cover

"The inclusion of word 'Perera' ensures at least 4 initials to the name. How come we are satisfied with only one, at Cricinfo?" Life is all about exceptions, Amjad


Hazlewood to Davids, 1 leg bye, big lbw shot as Davids walks right across and is hit right in front, but the ball seems to be bouncing over. Hots the back leg high. Rohrer, though, has missed the run-out. Davids wanders down the wicket aimlessly, but Rohrer misses the only stumps visible from point


Hazlewood to Behardien, 1 run, driven down the ground for one


Hazlewood to Davids, 1 run, full and wide, he reaches out, gets a thick edge to third man

End of over 12 (5 runs) Titans 72/3 (RR: 6.00)

    • H Davids 34 (28b 1x4 2x6)
    • F Behardien 14 (20b)
    • JR Hazlewood 4-0-19-1
    • SNJ O'Keefe 3-0-15-0

"Why in God's name to cricketers think they can get away with picking their nose? My workplace isn't internationally televised, and I'm still terrified to scratch my backside." GK, whoever you are referring to, thankfully I missed it. The advantages of typing for you

Cummins comes back


Cummins to Davids, 2 runs, length ball, wide, chipped over extra cover. Maddinson runs to his right from sweeper-cover and puts in a dive to keep it in


Cummins to Davids, FOUR, short, no room, chin high, but he has pulled this well, and smack between fine leg and deep square


Cummins to Davids, 1 run, punched to the left of mid-on for one


Cummins to Behardien, OUT, short cover is there for just this. Wide length ball, doesn't quite come on, Behardien drives in front of his body, and uppishly. McCullum takes a sharp catch to his right. He hardly has reaction time here

F Behardien c McCullum b Cummins 14 (29m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Roelof is in. Fasten seat belts. Hope we get to see his hit to third man when looking to midwicket


Cummins to van der Merwe, 1 run, cut away crisply first ball, gets a single


Cummins to Davids, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, pushed wide of cover for one

End of over 13 (9 runs) Titans 81/4 (RR: 6.23)

    • H Davids 42 (32b 2x4 2x6)
    • RE van der Merwe 1 (1b)
    • PJ Cummins 2-0-17-1
    • JR Hazlewood 4-0-19-1

Henriques is back


Henriques to Davids, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, runs off the outside half of the bat for one


Henriques to van der Merwe, no run, length ball, angling in, defended


Henriques to van der Merwe, OUT, No heroics from RVDM tonight. Jumps out of the crease, Henriques dgs this in, and this loopy bounces is already on its way down when van der Merwe slashes. He duly gets a bottom edge for Haddin to accept

RE van der Merwe c †Haddin b Henriques 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

"Can we open the seat belts now?" Yes, Amjad, we have run out of flying fuel

Meanwhile here is D Weise


Henriques to Wiese, 1 run, length ball, he moves forward to push this to sweeper-cover


Henriques to Davids, 1 run, punched down to long-on for one


Henriques to Wiese, no run, kicks off short of a length, pushed to point

End of over 14 (3 runs) Titans 84/5 (RR: 6.00)

    • D Wiese 1 (2b)
    • H Davids 44 (34b 2x4 2x6)
    • MC Henriques 2-0-10-1
    • PJ Cummins 2-0-17-1

O'Keefe to Davids, 1 run, low full toss, wide, driven to sweeper-cover


O'Keefe to Wiese, 1 run, driven to long-on

""Run out of flying fuel"? That's usually a good time to keep your seat belt fastened!" Miles, not when we are on the runway and grounded


O'Keefe to Davids, no run, full and wide, low and flat, squeezed to point


O'Keefe to Davids, no run, pushed to the right of O'Keefe who puts in a dive to keep them to dot

A good spell from O'Keefe: 4-0-19-0

Henriques to Wiese, 1 run, punched to pint for one. Tight single but they make it

"I don't know where GK works, but sitting around and scratching my backside is one of the most important and integral aspects of my job." Chappo, I take it you haven't heard of the butt scratcher yet

End of over 16 (3 runs) Titans 91/5 (RR: 5.68)

    • D Wiese 6 (10b)
    • H Davids 46 (38b 2x4 2x6)
    • MC Henriques 3-0-13-1
    • SNJ O'Keefe 4-0-19-0

Cummins is back


Cummins to Wiese, SIX, and he likes the pace on offer here. Length ball from wide of the crease, and on the pads, and he plays the pick-up over square leg


Cummins to Wiese, no run, as expected he runs his fingers across this one, 111ks, and beats him with the slowness


Cummins to Wiese, FOUR, quick bouncer now, and Wiese is on his way down the wicket too, but he plays a meaty pull shot into the cow corner


Cummins to Wiese, FOUR, short and wide, no feet from Wiese, but that serves him well, as he manages a sweet little edge to send this between the keeper and third man


Cummins to Wiese, 1 run, slower short ball, cut away to point for one


Cummins to Davids, no run, short of a length, outside off, no his toes to push this to cover

End of over 17 (15 runs) Titans 106/5 (RR: 6.23)

    • D Wiese 21 (15b 2x4 1x6)
    • PJ Cummins 3-0-32-1
    • MC Henriques 3-0-13-1

Henriques to bowl out


Henriques to Wiese, SIX, Wiese is giving Titans a fighting total here. Shimmies down the wicket, gets under a length ball, and sends this into the orbit. It stays in the for an eternity before landing on the grass bans behind deep midwicket


Henriques to Wiese, SIX, that's a forehand that has cleared long-on. He is down the wicket, Henriques pitches short, but he has gone ahead for a flat pull over long-on


Henriques to Wiese, 2 runs, driven wide of long-off and they scamper for two


Henriques to Wiese, FOUR, and now the touch. Slower ball, down leg, he moves inside the line, and nudges it fine of short fine leg


Henriques to Wiese, 1 run, gets the yorker in outside off, dug out to long-off for one

This is looking more than just fighting now


Henriques to Davids, FOUR, nothing going right for Sixers here. Davids plays the short-arm pull, in the air, towards deep midwicket where Maddinson runs in for the catch, but the ball not only bounces short but also bounces over his diving body for four

End of over 18 (23 runs) Titans 129/5 (RR: 7.16)

    • H Davids 50 (40b 3x4 2x6)
    • D Wiese 40 (20b 3x4 3x6)
    • MC Henriques 4-0-36-1
    • PJ Cummins 3-0-32-1

Cummins to Wiese, 1 wide, starts with a wide down leg. Sixers are a little stunned here


Cummins to Wiese, FOUR, this is not good bowling. Length, quick, wide, and Wiese gets under it to drive it over point


Cummins to Wiese, FOUR, slower bouncer, and Wiese somehow manages to pull it square, and between the two deep men on the leg side. He is almost like dragging this down from the top of a tree, but he manages to keep it down


Cummins to Wiese, 1 run, full and straight, and gets just a single to midwicket


Cummins to Davids, 1 run, McCullum drops one now. Punched towards extra cover where McCullum is hanging back and he is late to come in. What's more? He has hurt his finger too. N Mac is off the field


Cummins to Wiese, no run, gets away with one. Length ball on the pads. That is meat and drink, but Wiese swings down the wrong line


Cummins to Wiese, 2 wides, Sixers losing it completely. Wide down leg, and Haddin fails to collect it too


Cummins to Davids, SIX, Poor bowling. Length ball, middle and leg, no change of pace, asking to be punished. Davids opens up the front leg, and slogs this many a yard behind the cow corner

End of over 19 (19 runs) Titans 148/5 (RR: 7.78)

    • H Davids 57 (42b 3x4 3x6)
    • D Wiese 49 (24b 5x4 3x6)
    • PJ Cummins 4-0-51-1
    • MC Henriques 4-0-36-1

Starc to bowl the last over. These last three overs could have cost Sixers the game: 57 have come off them


Starc to Wiese, 1 run, drilled to deep midwicket to bring up this tournament's fastest fifty, and what a time to do so. And what a little gem this has been

Round the wicket continues Starc


Starc to Davids, 1 wide, Davids moves across to try to scoop, and Starc strays too far down leg

Nineteen balls to go from 100 to 150


Starc to Davids, 1 run, full and straight, sliced away to sweeper-cover


Starc to Wiese, FOUR, low full toss, shovelled over the bowler's head, Smith puts in a valiant effort at long-on, running into the boundary boards, but can't save the four. He had run in early, and had to backtrack


Starc to Wiese, SIX, half-volley, on off, no change of pace, and Wiese goes inside-out, over long-off. Beautiful connection


Starc to Wiese, 1 run, low full toss, into the pads, the mis-hit goes only as far as midwicket

Sixers will be slightly relieved Wiese is not on strike. But will they?


Starc to Davids, 1 run, full, angling in, driven to mid-off for one

What a turnaround. They have nearly doubled their 16-over score of 91. Seventy-two runs off the last four overs against this Sixers attack. All down to Wiese's brute hitting, and Davids's intelligent losing of the strike to Wiese. Both scored fifties, both shake each other's hands as they walk off. Titans are right back. We will be back soon, too

End of over 20 (15 runs) Titans 163/5

    • H Davids 59 (44b 3x4 3x6)
    • D Wiese 61 (28b 6x4 4x6)
    • MA Starc 4-0-33-2
    • PJ Cummins 4-0-51-1
