ICC World Twenty20 - 8th match, Group B

Australia v West Indies

Australia won by 17 runs (D/L method)

1.4

Starc to Charles, 1 run, short of a length, swinging in again, off the inside half of the bat, gets a single wide of short fine

1.6

West Indies 11/1   J Charles 2* (2b)

2.1

Cummins to Charles, no run, length ball, outside off, 85mph, left alone

2.2

Cummins to Charles, no run, Yorker, 140ks, dug out

2.3

Cummins to Charles, no run, full, wide outside off, beats the drive

2.4

Cummins to Charles, no run, seemed to be swinging with his eyes shut. Misses a length ball just outside off. That would have hit the fourth stump

2.5

Cummins to Charles, no run, they call this game hit or miss. At the moment, Charles is only missing. Another big drive tried, and he is beaten outside off again

2.6

Cummins to Charles, no run, Cummins may as well ask him to hold that thing straight so that he can aim at it. Driving outside off, and beaten by the slight movement away

West Indies 11/1   J Charles 2* (8b)

3.5

Starc to Charles, SIX, backed away, length ball on the pads and swung away over long on, good strike that

Starc to Charles, FOUR, backed away and slogged off the inside half of the bat past short fine leg

West Indies 25/1   J Charles 12* (10b 1x4 1x6)

5.1

Christian to Charles, FOUR, they are hemorrhaging runs here. Short of a length, into the pads, with short fine up, and he has placed it past short fine

5.2

Christian to Charles, OUT, more timber. Not as comprehensive as the first wicket, but Australia needed this more desperately. Seems like a slower ball that kicked at him, hit the glove as he looked to run this down to third man, and rolled over to the stumps. In fact it's a big offcutter that hits his arm and ricochets onto the stumps

J Charles b Christian 16 (17m 12b 2x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

West Indies 47/2   J Charles 16 (12b 2x4 1x6)
