ICC World Twenty20 - 16th match, Group 2

Australia v India

Australia won by 9 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

4.1

Watson to Kohli, 1 run, short of a length, middle and leg, worked away for one

4.2

Watson to Pathan, SIX, allrounder to allrounder, Watson will not be pleased. Length ball, outside off, and Pathan has lofted him right over his head. An evidence of the batting talent

4.3

Watson to Pathan, no run, drops this into the leg side, finds short midwicket

4.4

Watson to Pathan, 1 run, full, on the pads, flicked away for a single

4.5

Watson to Kohli, 1 run, short of a length, into the pads, worked away for an easy single

4.6

Watson to Pathan, FOUR, top shot from Pathan again. Jumps out of the crease, makes room too, takes a length ball from off and lofts it over point. That's a difficult shot to play

India 42/1   SR Watson 1-0-13-0

10.1

Watson to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Bouncer is back. Hello. And so is Watson's golden arm. Digs this in, Yuvraj likes the drop in pace from Cummins, and he top-edges it to deep midwicket

Yuvraj Singh c Maxwell b Watson 8 (11m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

10.2

Watson to Pathan, 2 runs, another mis-hit from Pathan, and it is safe again. Short from Watson, looks to pull it, gets a bottom edge past the keeper

10.3

Watson to Pathan, no run, length ball, on the pads, worked away, but not through the infield

10.4

Watson to Pathan, 1 run, pulled away to deep square leg for one

10.5

Watson to Sharma, 1 run, length ball, on off, plays with an open face, gets a single between cover and point

10.6

Watson to Pathan, OUT, Watson strikes again. India might even be thankful that Pathan is out. Memories of Ravindra Jadeja's promotion all those years ago when he tried his best to hit out but just couldn't. This is full, on the pads, flicked away, straight to short midwicket

IK Pathan c White b Watson 31 (48m 30b 2x4 1x6) SR: 103.33

India 74/4   SR Watson 2-0-17-2

13.1

Watson to Dhoni, no run, length ball, on off, pushed down the ground, the mid-off is up

13.2

Watson to Dhoni, FOUR, short, chest high, 129ks, Dhoni pulls this emphatically, along the ground, between deep midwicket and deep square

13.3

Watson to Dhoni, no run, short of a length, outside off, left alone

13.4

Watson to Dhoni, 1 run, steered away to third man for one

13.5

Watson to Raina, 1 run, length ball, on off, bunted into the leg side for one

13.6

Watson to Dhoni, no run, length ball, on off, pushed to straightish extra cover

India 91/5   SR Watson 3-0-23-2

19.1

Watson to Raina, FOUR, slower ball gone wrong, and he has smacked this full toss into the cow corner. Warner puts a dive in, but cant touch it

19.2

Watson to Raina, FOUR, poor bowling. Fine leg is up, and he is full and on the pads. Raina takes the gifted runs

19.3

Watson to Raina, OUT, Raina falls in search for quick runs. Wide length ball, he gets under it, but can't clear long-off. Watson hasn't bowled the best of overs, but with this wicket he has a chance to pull it all back. Decent hand from Raina, though

SK Raina c Maxwell b Watson 26 (40m 19b 4x4 0x6) SR: 136.84

19.4

Watson to Ashwin, 1 run, looks to walks across, Watson bowls a wide full delivery, Ashwin gets a thick edge to third man

19.5

Watson to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, full toss, absolutely smashed, but for a single to long-on

19.6

Watson to Ashwin, 1 run, shuffles across again, Watson has enough time to realise that and bowls full and wide, and Ashwin gets just the single to cover

India 140/7   SR Watson 4-0-34-3
