ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group 2

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

4.1

Kallis to Watson, FOUR, and Kallis is thrashed first ball, short, he's not as pacy as Steyn and there was also some width, Watson smacks that between point and cover, doesn't waste that

Australia 19/1   SR Watson 10* (13b 1x4)   JH Kallis 0.1-0-4-0

5.1

Morkel to Watson, FOUR, and he errs in length this time, short and wide, much like Kallis in the previous over and Watson makes it two in two, there's plenty of width for him to blaze that through point

Australia 27/1   SR Watson 16* (18b 2x4)   M Morkel 2.1-0-12-1

5.2

Morkel to Watson, FOUR, shot, pitched up on the off, he's forward, to the pitch and stylishly drives that past a diving extra cover, wide of mid-off, for a boundary

Australia 31/1   SR Watson 20* (19b 3x4)   M Morkel 2.2-0-16-1

5.5

Morkel to Watson, FOUR, bad ball from Morkel, a full toss, and worse, it's on the pads, flicked away with ease past short fine leg, easy pickings

Australia 37/1   SR Watson 25* (21b 4x4)   M Morkel 2.5-0-22-1

6.5

Botha to Watson, FOUR, seizes the length early there, rocked back upon release and dealt with it, short and it's pulled away hard over midwicket for a one bounce four

Australia 46/1   SR Watson 31* (25b 5x4)   J Botha 0.5-0-8-0

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

Australia 52/1   SR Watson 36* (28b 6x4)   RJ Peterson 0.2-0-4-0

11.3

Parnell to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey connects well, finally, picked the length early and dispatched it into that gap between long-on and deep midwicket

Australia 86/1   MEK Hussey 19* (20b 1x4)   WD Parnell 1.3-0-16-0

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

Australia 103/1   SR Watson 64* (44b 7x4 2x6)   RJ Peterson 2.2-0-22-0

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

Australia 107/1   SR Watson 68* (45b 8x4 2x6)   RJ Peterson 2.3-0-26-0

14.1

Steyn to Hussey, FOUR, Hussey attacks first up, short of a good length and he shapes up for a cut and he manages to get it past point and to the ropes, slashed hard at that one

Australia 113/2   MEK Hussey 33* (28b 2x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 2.1-0-11-0

14.3

Steyn to White, FOUR, full toss and there was some outswing, Cameron White tried to defend it from the crease and it took the outside edge as it swung away, went past slip for a boundary

Australia 118/2   CL White 4* (2b 1x4)   DW Steyn 2.3-0-15-0

15.6

Botha to White, FOUR, misfield by Parnell in the deep, short and White drags it from outside off towards long-on, a pull, Parnell messes it up there, conceding a boundary when there should have been just one run

Australia 125/2   CL White 9* (9b 2x4)   J Botha 3-0-22-0

16.6

Peterson to White, FOUR, Mid-on is inside the circle and White goes over the top this time, tossed up on middle and he clears the circle with ease
