ICC World Twenty20 - 16th match, Group 2

Australia v India

Australia won by 9 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

2.6

Cummins to Pathan, OUT, great footwork from Cummins. Short of a length, gets a little big on him, he drops it just off the pitch and runs. On most occasions these result in singles, but Cummins has other ideas here. he strides towards the ball, and kicks it towards the stump, dislodging the bails a second before Gambhir's bat has slid in. Top work from Cummins

G Gambhir run out 17 (12m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 141.66

India 21/1   IK Pathan 2* (6b)   PJ Cummins 1-0-6-0

7.2

Cummins to Kohli, OUT, pace has done him in. This is one of the rare instances in recent times that Kohli has been done in comprehensively by a bowler. It's the pace and bounce again. Short, close to 143ks, his weight didn't go back as he pulled, and ended up skying it towards mid-off. Christian had to run to to his right, and put a slide in to complete the catch

V Kohli c Christian b Cummins 15 (18m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 115.38

India 56/2   IK Pathan 22* (19b 2x4 1x6)   PJ Cummins 1.2-0-6-1

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

India 70/3   IK Pathan 28* (26b 2x4 1x6)   SR Watson 1.1-0-13-1

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   RG Sharma 1* (1b)   SR Watson 2-0-17-2

11.1

Starc to Sharma, OUT, played all around it. Wide of the crease, slightly low arm, angled in towards top of off, Sharma just misses the line completely, the bat coming down from slips, but looking to play straight. The off stump goes for a walk. Australia on a hat-trick

RG Sharma b Starc 1 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

India 74/5   SK Raina 0* (0b)   MA Starc 2.1-0-14-1

15.6

Cummins to Dhoni, OUT, pressure of dot balls there. This is a wide half-volley, might even have been called wide had he not driven at it. No feet means he is reaching out, and manages just a limp hit straight to extra cover

MS Dhoni c Bailey b Cummins 15 (21m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

India 104/6   SK Raina 9* (8b 1x4)   PJ Cummins 3-0-13-2

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

India 137/7   R Ashwin 14* (10b 1x4 1x6)   SR Watson 3.3-0-31-3
