ICC World Twenty20 - 8th match, Group B

Australia v West Indies

Australia won by 17 runs (D/L method)

7.1

Maxwell to Gayle, SIX, oh hello. Maxwell is launched first ball. Nothing too wrong with the ball. On a length, middle and leg, and nonchalantly lofted over long-on. How cool is he

7.2

Maxwell to Gayle, 1 leg bye, tries the sweep, beaten by a quick ball, gets a leg-bye

7.3

Maxwell to Samuels, 1 run, meanwhile, there is a different game on with Gayle not on strike. Samuels is beaten in the flight, gets an inside edge for a single

7.4

Maxwell to Gayle, no run, stop the press. Somebody has managed an appeal against Gayle. Fast and flat, beats his shot, hits him in front of leg, and this is missing leg according to the umpire. That really did look close to me, though

7.5

Maxwell to Gayle, SIX, whoa... these stadiums are not big enough for Gayle. Same ball, flat, darted into the pads, but Gayle backs away this time, and pulls this over wide long-on - that went 95 metres before bouncing

7.6

Maxwell to Gayle, FOUR, bowled'im. No he hasn't. Oh, that seemed gone for a moment as Gayle swung hard and seemed to miss. However, he got a tiny little inside edge in front of off, and it missed everything

West Indies 80/2   GJ Maxwell 1-0-17-0
