ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group 2

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

1.1

Starc to Amla, no run, length just outside off stump, left alone

1.2

Starc to Amla, 1 run, gets across his stumps and flicks a full ball well timed straight to the deep square fielder

1.3

Starc to Kallis, no run, angled across the right-hander, Kallis goes to drive and gets an inside edge towards midwicket, sign of the pace of this wicket

1.4

Starc to Kallis, no run, this is certainly an indication of the pace of the wicket, this is back of a length, Kallis goes to pull and is there too soon, gets hit on the body

1.5

Starc to Kallis, FOUR, full ball just outside off, didn't seem to be perfectly timed, but gets it down the ground for four, had to slightly drag it but effective

1.6

Starc to Kallis, 1 run, more conventional, coming forward and punching a length ball to mid off, the take a quick single

South Africa 8/1   MA Starc 1-0-6-0

3.1

Starc to Amla, no run, well bowled, little bit of shape in from just outside off, blocked back to the bowler from a length

3.2

Starc to Amla, no run, full of a good length, cut and missed at

3.3

Starc to Amla, 1 run, good drive to cover point, oh there's a huge mix up, a direct hit and Duminy is miles out, but the throw is so far wide of the one-stump Hussey had to aim at, lucky that for SA

3.4

Starc to Duminy, 1 wide, doesn't adjust to the leftie and send it down leg

3.4

Starc to Duminy, no run, good length just outside off, driven on the up to backward point on the front foot

3.5

Starc to Duminy, no run, just outside off on a similar length, again forward to drive, mistimed to mid off

3.6

Starc to Duminy, FOUR, fuller and this drive finds the gap between point and cover and runs to the rope

South Africa 22/2   MA Starc 2-0-12-0

12.1

Starc to de Villiers, 1 run, length around off stump, clipped through the covers

12.2

Starc to Behardien, 1 run, straighter now, tucked to long leg

12.3

Starc to de Villiers, 2 runs, gave himself room outside leg stump, carved down to third man from a length around middle

12.4

Starc to de Villiers, no run, pushed to extra cover, non-striker quickly sent back

12.5

Starc to de Villiers, no run, excellent short ball from around the wicket, follows de Villiers as he tries to back away and play the ramp, missed

12.6

Starc to de Villiers, 1 run, fuller, gets it off the hip towards square leg

South Africa 78/4   MA Starc 3-0-17-0

19.1

Starc to Peterson, FOUR, full outside off stump, stepping across the stumps it's swung away to the leg side fence past midwicket

19.2

Starc to Peterson, FOUR, goes extra cover this time and it's away for four more! Great innings this, step to leg and cracked pact extra cover

19.3

Starc to Peterson, no run, full ball, gets the length right now, right in the block hole, evades the swipe to leg and through to the keeper

19.4

Starc to Peterson, FOUR, around the wicket, steps outside off and ramped to the fine leg fence, lovely execution, picked up really well that

19.5

Starc to Peterson, 1 bye, slower ball outside off, a huge swing from outside off is nowhere near but they go through for a bye to the keeper

19.6

Starc to Behardien, 1 run, length outside off, slapped to extra cover, no real effort to get that any further from Behardien

South Africa 146/5   MA Starc 4-0-30-0
