ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group 2

Australia v South Africa

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)

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

Australia 60/1   SR Watson 43* (30b 6x4 1x6)   RJ Peterson 0.5-0-12-0

9.3

Parnell to Watson, SIX, that's been hammered, he's been superb at spotting these short ones quick, pulls that high and handsome and long, over deep square leg, raises another half-century, some form he's in

Australia 73/1   SR Watson 51* (35b 6x4 2x6)   WD Parnell 0.3-0-8-0

11.4

Parnell to Hussey, SIX, this has been sent over deep square leg and it hits a policeman standing there after rebounding from the scoreboard, on the pads and that's picked up beautifully

Australia 92/1   MEK Hussey 25* (21b 1x4 1x6)   WD Parnell 1.4-0-22-0

16.4

Peterson to Hussey, SIX, there was a bit more air on this time and Hussey connected well, tossed up and he came forward to swing that high over wide long-on for a six

Australia 133/2   MEK Hussey 42* (34b 2x4 2x6)   RJ Peterson 3.4-0-36-1

17.4

Botha to White, SIX, White finishes it off in style, a flat six swung away over deep square leg, had made up his mind there and connected well enough to clear the ropes by a distance

Australia 147/2   CL White 21* (13b 3x4 1x6)   J Botha 3.4-0-31-0
