ICC Champions Trophy - 9th match, Group B

South Africa v West Indies

Match tied (D/L method)

17.1

Pollard to Ingram, 1 run, short of a length, on the pads, bunted on the leg side for one

17.2

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, short, wide, slow, cut away to deep cover for one

17.3

Pollard to Ingram, OUT, slower ball does it. On a length, pitched outside leg, but Ingram is too early into the shot, and ends up skying it towards deep midwicket. Little Bravo runs to his right, a long way, and judges the catch well, and then kicks it away

CA Ingram c DM Bravo b Pollard 73 (83m 63b 6x4 2x6) SR: 115.87

17.4

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, short of a length, angling in towards off, runs it fine square on the off side

17.5

Pollard to Duminy, no run, short of a length, on the stumps, defended back to him

17.6

Pollard to Duminy, 1 run, short of a length, pitched outside leg, worked away for a couple

South Africa 126/2   KA Pollard 1-0-4-1

19.1

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, dabbed into the off side

19.2

Pollard to du Plessis, 1 wide, extra bounce on this shortish delivery, beats him down the leg side, and is - I would say harshly - called a wide. That went under his armpit, man

19.2

Pollard to du Plessis, 1 run, bunted into the leg side for one

19.3

Pollard to de Villiers, 2 runs, length ball, angling in, clipped away wide of deep midwicket

19.4

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 wide, wide wide ball outside off

19.4

Pollard to de Villiers, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, tries to punch it, but the ball runs off the outside half of the bat for one

19.5

Pollard to du Plessis, no run, angling in on a length, flicked to midwicket

19.6

Pollard to du Plessis, no run, beauty. That's a length ball that seams it will angle in towards off, but holds its line against the angle, and beats his drive

South Africa 139/3   KA Pollard 2-0-11-1

27.1

Pollard to du Plessis, FOUR, down the wicket, Pollard bounces him, he still goes after it, and top-edges it over the keeper's head. How IPL is enriching batsmanship

27.2

Pollard to du Plessis, no run, slower bouncer, du Plessis hasn't picked it, and is through the shot well before it arrives

27.3

Pollard to du Plessis, 1 run, moves across to a full ball, du Plessis gets the toe end onto it for a single

27.4

Pollard to Miller, no run, slower ball, short of a length, defended off the front foot. Had to check the shot

27.5

Pollard to Miller, no run, down the wicket, Pollard stays short of a length, slow and outside leg. No room for him. Played defensively

27.6

Pollard to Miller, no run, short of a length, pushed to cover

South Africa 197/4   KA Pollard 3-0-16-1

29.1

Pollard to Miller, 2 runs, length ball, on off, slogged wide of long-on, and what an effort from DJG Sammy. He runs hard to his left from long-on, and then puts the full-length dive in, but only gets his hands to it. Doesn't catch it

29.2

Pollard to Miller, SIX, that's in his arc, and out of the park. Short, middle and leg, 74.4mph, and he has dismissed it over midwicket for a sweetly timed six

29.3

Pollard to Miller, 1 run, drilled hard on the bounce to long-on for one

29.4

Pollard to du Plessis, no run, slower short ball, du Plessis is early into the pull and is through before the ball arrives

29.5

Pollard to du Plessis, FOUR, loopy slower ball at 60mph. It would have been a wide had du Plessis not gone on his knee and driven this wide of long-off for four

29.6

Pollard to du Plessis, 1 run, regulation place, short at 70mph, pulled away to deep midwicket

South Africa 221/4   KA Pollard 4-0-30-1
