ICC World Twenty20 - 8th match, Group B

Australia v West Indies

Australia won by 17 runs (D/L method)

17.5

Watson to Sammy, 1 run, big wind-up, but Sammy doesn't get the length, and just bunts this shortish delivery for a single towards point

West Indies 164/5   DJG Sammy 1* (1b)

18.5

Cummins to Sammy, no run, Sammy wanted to send this to Galle, but the slower ball never arrived, and he pulled out of the shot

18.6

Cummins to Sammy, 1 run, another slower short ball, Sammy is wise to it, but gets just a single to deep square leg

West Indies 175/6   DJG Sammy 2* (3b)

19.1

Starc to Sammy, FOUR, that's cruel. Sammy winds up big time, swings at a length ball, and the edge flies between the keeper and short third man

19.2

Starc to Sammy, SIX, what are these bats made of? This one looked like a skier the moment this left the bat. Had I been at long-on, I would have set myself up for the catch, but this just keeps sailing and sailing over that man

19.3

Starc to Sammy, 2 leg byes, everyone's a-stumbling. This is a sharp delivery, cramps him up, hits him on the pad, has hardly reached the 30-yard circle at square leg, but Sammy wants two. As he turns, Sammy stumbles, but Wade stumbles too as he tries to pick up and throw. Sammy makes it

19.4

Starc to Sammy, OUT, this ball has been to the moon and back. Full toss, hits it high on the bat, and skies it. Warner runs in from long-on, sets under it, completes the catch, with fingers pointing up in front of his upper abdomen. That was slightly uncomfortable, but not for Aussies

DJG Sammy c Warner b Starc 12 (12m 7b 1x4 1x6) SR: 171.42

West Indies 187/7   DJG Sammy 12 (7b 1x4 1x6)
