ICC World Twenty20 - 16th match, Group 2

Australia v India

Australia won by 9 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

0.4

Maxwell to Gambhir, FOUR, too full and high again, and he has square-driven this between cover and cover-point. There's no stopping this one, though

India 6/0   G Gambhir 6* (4b 1x4)   GJ Maxwell 0.4-0-6-0

1.5

Starc to Gambhir, FOUR, short, wide enough, and he has steered this past point. Just guided past the man. Lovely timing

India 15/0   G Gambhir 12* (7b 2x4)   MA Starc 0.5-0-6-0

2.2

Cummins to Gambhir, FOUR, and he angles it in too far with the fine leg up in the circle. Deftly glanced away by Gambhir. Minimum effort, four runs for the taking

India 20/0   G Gambhir 16* (9b 3x4)   PJ Cummins 0.2-0-5-0

3.2

Starc to Kohli, FOUR, and he really can't do anything wrong. A decent delivery, short of a length, outside off, and he has punched it to the right of third man for four

India 26/1   V Kohli 4* (1b 1x4)   MA Starc 1.2-0-11-0

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   IK Pathan 15* (12b 1x4 1x6)   SR Watson 1-0-13-0

5.5

Christian to Kohli, FOUR, Kohli on the charge now, gets a wide length ball, drives it inside-out, past the desperate diving hand at extra cover

India 50/1   V Kohli 14* (9b 2x4)   DT Christian 0.5-0-8-0

6.1

Hogg to Pathan, FOUR, stars off with a big wide down the leg side, but Pathan sees an easy four for himself and guides this between the keeper and short fine leg

India 54/1   IK Pathan 21* (15b 2x4 1x6)   GB Hogg 0.1-0-4-0

8.3

Hogg to Yuvraj Singh, FOUR, looked like a googly, but it didn't even land. The leg-side full toss has been smashed wide of long-on where Christian tried to do too much with it. He dived and also tried to lob it up for a relay throw, but failed to collect it first

India 64/2   Yuvraj Singh 5* (5b 1x4)   GB Hogg 1.3-0-10-0

12.3

Hogg to Dhoni, FOUR, they are not picking the googly. Tossed up on off, Dhoni throws his hands at it, gets a thick edge, past slip. Gets four for it too

India 84/5   MS Dhoni 7* (5b 1x4)   GB Hogg 2.3-0-18-0

13.2

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

India 89/5   MS Dhoni 12* (9b 2x4)   SR Watson 2.2-0-21-2

14.1

Hogg to Raina, FOUR, misfielded. That's a little embarrassing by Aussie standards. Driven back at him, and through Hogg's legs. Straight through them. Warner puts in a desperate dive at long-off, but can't keep it in

India 95/5   SK Raina 7* (6b 1x4)   GB Hogg 3.1-0-23-0

16.1

Christian to Raina, FOUR, poor delivery at death. Length ball, 127ks, on leg, Raina punches it back over his head. Lands inches inside the boundary cushion. High elbow held for cameras

India 108/6   SK Raina 13* (9b 2x4)   DT Christian 1.1-0-12-0

16.4

Christian to Ashwin, FOUR, Christian got away with it last ball, but you can't afford bowling wide length balls at death. Ashwin opens the face, drives it square, between cover-point and point

India 113/6   R Ashwin 4* (2b 1x4)   DT Christian 1.4-0-17-0

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

India 133/6   SK Raina 22* (17b 3x4)   SR Watson 3.1-0-27-2

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

India 137/6   SK Raina 26* (18b 4x4)   SR Watson 3.2-0-31-2
