ICC World Twenty20 - 8th match, Group B

Australia v West Indies

Australia won by 17 runs (D/L method)

3.6

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)   MA Starc 2-0-17-1

4.1

Cummins to Gayle, FOUR, length ball wide outside off, driven over cover point

West Indies 29/1   CH Gayle 9* (10b 1x4)   PJ Cummins 1.1-1-4-0

4.3

Cummins to Gayle, FOUR, back of a length outside off, hammered past midwicket, wasn't totally timed but enough bat on it to get it out for four wide of deep square leg

West Indies 33/1   CH Gayle 13* (12b 2x4)   PJ Cummins 1.3-1-8-0

4.4

Cummins to Gayle, FOUR, four into the same region, it was a touch straighter but swung into the same part of the boundary, only this blasted one bounce over the rope

West Indies 37/1   CH Gayle 17* (13b 3x4)   PJ Cummins 1.4-1-12-0

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

West Indies 47/1   J Charles 16* (11b 2x4 1x6)   DT Christian 0.1-0-4-0

5.4

Christian to Gayle, FOUR, CH Gayle. Has. Arrived. Bowlers and fielders duck for cover. Backs away, takes a perfectly decent delivery from off, and smacks it over cover-point

West Indies 52/2   CH Gayle 27* (16b 4x4 1x6)   DT Christian 0.4-0-9-1

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   CH Gayle 51* (26b 5x4 4x6)   GJ Maxwell 1-0-17-0

8.6

Christian to Samuels, FOUR, Shot and a half. The best of the day. Slower ball from Christian, Samuels waits and waits, and then square drives it, bisecting the two men in the deep on the off side. It reached the boards before you could say four

West Indies 88/2   MN Samuels 10* (9b 1x4)   DT Christian 2-0-17-1

12.2

Christian to Samuels, FOUR, lovely shot. No room available here, and it is short of a length too. So he has neither the length nor the width but he punches this mighty fine, past point, and the ball races away

West Indies 103/3   MN Samuels 19* (20b 2x4)   DT Christian 2.2-0-21-1

13.6

Hogg to Samuels, FOUR, short, turning in, cramps him up, but Samuels gets enough bat on the pull to send it past short fine leg for four

West Indies 124/3   MN Samuels 36* (26b 3x4 2x6)   GB Hogg 3-0-23-0

15.5

Hogg to Pollard, FOUR, the long-off is very wide, and Pollard capitalises. The first ball, full, and he chips it straight, just left of the stumps, and the long-off is not even in the frame

West Indies 145/4   KA Pollard 4* (1b 1x4)   GB Hogg 3.5-0-30-1

17.2

Watson to Pollard, FOUR, that's a kill-me ball. Length ball, outside off, and Pollard has murdered it to the left of the stumps at the non-striker's end

West Indies 162/4   KA Pollard 10* (7b 2x4)   SR Watson 3.2-0-26-1

18.1

Cummins to Bravo, FOUR, and he has still got four on off. Bravo makes room, Cummins follows him, sort of handcuffs him, but this thick edge from outside leg beats the keeper on his right

West Indies 169/5   DJ Bravo 25* (19b 1x4 1x6)   PJ Cummins 3.1-1-35-0

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

West Indies 179/6   DJG Sammy 6* (4b 1x4)   MA Starc 3.1-0-25-1

19.6

Starc to Narine, FOUR, Narine doesn't bother. He has backed away and creamed a short delivery over extra cover. Gayle would have been happy with that shot

West Indies 191/8   SP Narine 4* (1b 1x4)   MA Starc 4-0-35-3
