ICC World Twenty20 - 16th match, Group 2

Australia v India

Australia won by 9 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

4.3

Ashwin to Watson, SIX, long hop outside leg, and there is no hope if you bowl that to Watson. He has pulled it over square leg. Doesn't matter if it is a carrom ball or a chess ball if you bowl that short

Australia 30/0   SR Watson 11* (13b 1x6)   R Ashwin 2.3-0-21-0

4.6

Ashwin to Watson, SIX, this is a bit of rubbish from Ashwin. Another long hop, into the pads, and Watson has deposited it over midwicket

Australia 38/0   SR Watson 19* (16b 2x6)   R Ashwin 3-0-29-0

7.1

Chawla to Watson, SIX, welcome to the crease. You may as well give the red rag to a bull. Long hop, middle and leg, to Watson. Need I mention what happened after that?

Australia 59/0   SR Watson 26* (20b 3x6)   PP Chawla 0.1-0-6-0

7.6

Chawla to Watson, SIX, wide half-volley, Watson is not going to respect them. Slog-sweeps it dead straight for a flat six

Australia 67/0   SR Watson 33* (23b 4x6)   PP Chawla 1-0-14-0

8.2

Harbhajan Singh to Warner, SIX, that's a bull-headed shot. Flighted outside off, played against the turn, mis-hit slightly, but he has enough power and bat behind it to clear deep midwicket

Australia 73/0   DA Warner 38* (27b 6x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 1.2-0-12-0

8.3

Harbhajan Singh to Warner, SIX, if mis-hits are flying for sixes, imagine when he hits them clean. It goes deep towards the end of the stadium. This is carnage

Australia 79/0   DA Warner 44* (28b 6x4 2x6)   Harbhajan Singh 1.3-0-18-0

9.2

Pathan to Watson, SIX, that's into the third tier. Irfan is not even quarter the bowler with the old ball. why would you not give him the new swinging ball? This is short and a sitting duck. Don't bowl this to Watson

Australia 87/0   SR Watson 40* (26b 5x6)   IK Pathan 0.2-0-6-0

9.3

Pathan to Watson, SIX, "Ridiculous bowling," says Mark Waugh, but hang on that has only gone into the second tier. Short again, and Watson is not going to let you get away with this

Australia 93/0   SR Watson 46* (27b 6x6)   IK Pathan 0.3-0-12-0

10.5

Kohli to Watson, SIX, beautiful shot. Nothing brutal about it. Full, middle and leg, and he has lofted this dead straight. Just a caress

Australia 108/0   SR Watson 61* (35b 1x4 7x6)   V Kohli 0.5-0-8-0

13.1

Yuvraj Singh to Warner, SIX, It might well be. He starts with a buffet full toss, and Warner has cleared deep midwicket with ease

Australia 130/0   DA Warner 56* (38b 6x4 3x6)   Yuvraj Singh 1.1-0-8-0
