ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group 2

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

7.1

Peterson to Watson, no run, big appeal for lbw, looked close, that went on straight it seemed, angling in towards middle and leg, no turn there, would it have gone down leg? Hmm, tough to say, Watson missed as he came forward to defend, looked mighty close

7.2

Peterson to Watson, FOUR, Watson's put that behind him in no time, short and he's rocked back to punish that over midwicket

7.3

Peterson to Watson, 1 run, shortish, punched hard off the back foot towards extra cover, a fumble allows them a sinlge

7.4

Peterson to Hussey, 1 run, Hussey's doing it well, drives it down to long-on for a single, eight in eight for him now

7.5

Peterson to Watson, SIX, some strength from Watson, converted that into a full toss with a reach forward, tossed up, he leaned forward and just chipped it hard over the deep midwicket boundary

7.6

Peterson to Watson, no run, floating it on the off stump, gets to the pitch and pushes that gently towards cover

Australia 60/1   RJ Peterson 1-0-12-0

10.1

Peterson to Watson, 2 runs, dropped, how costly will that prove? Watson reached forward to that flighted ball from Peterson, Parnell's running in from long-off, slides and it's dying on him, just manages to get his hands underneath it but can't hold on, a tough chance, but a chance nevertheless

10.2

Peterson to Watson, 1 run, knocks it away for a single

10.3

Peterson to Hussey, no run, Hussey plays the reverse-sweep and connects well but straight to Amla at point

10.4

Peterson to Hussey, 1 run, floating it on leg stump and that's clipped towards deep square leg for a single

10.5

Peterson to Watson, 1 run, tossed up on middle, drives it down to long-on past the diving bowler for a single

10.6

Peterson to Hussey, no run, flat on the off, keeps a little low, punched towards extra cover

Australia 81/1   RJ Peterson 2-0-17-0

13.1

Peterson to Hussey, 1 run, flighted on the leg stump from round the wicket to the left-hander, was looking to sweep it square but ended up playing it finer, just the single

13.2

Peterson to Watson, FOUR, flighted on middle, Watson waited for it, got to the pitch and lofted it over the bowler's head for a one bounce four, went dead straight

13.3

Peterson to Watson, FOUR, four more, that's struck flat and hard through extra cover, Behardiem runs to his left from long-off, slides, and then misfields, palming it past the ropes

13.4

Peterson to Watson, 2 runs, almost three in a row, drives that over midwicket but good relay-fielding at long-on where Parnell slides to his right and saves a couple of runs

13.5

Peterson to Watson, OUT, this time he holes out, wanted to finish it off in a hurry, tossed up from Peterson and Watson lofts that but doesn't get the distance, straight down long-on's throat, Parnell takes an easy catch

SR Watson c Parnell b Peterson 70 (62m 47b 8x4 2x6) SR: 148.93

16.2

Peterson to White, 1 run, floating it on the off, comes down the track and drives it past long-on for a single

16.3

Peterson to Hussey, no run, missed stumping, kept really low, Hussey came down the track to pull it over midwicket and most would have missed it, almost went along the ground and AB couldn't collect after Hussey gave the charge
