ICC World Twenty20 - 23rd match, Group 2

Australia v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 32 runs

1.1

Starc to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, you should have seen the swing! Starc comes over the wicket and gets it to swing back in sharply from the off stump line, Hafeez tried to flick it away but didn't read the movement, the umpire took his time, landed on off and replays showed that crashing into middle and leg

1.2

Starc to Nasir Jamshed, no run, lands it full to Jamshed and he drills it back to the bowler

1.3

Starc to Nasir Jamshed, no run, was that a chance? Yes it was a drop by Maxwell at first slip, he dragged a full and wide delivery and the bat hit the pitch, the ball lobbed off the outside edge and Maxwell juggled and fumbled

Starc to Nasir Jamshed, 2 runs, tucked away across the line wide of midwicket for a couple

1.5

Starc to Nasir Jamshed, no run, bangs it in short and he weaves away from the bouncer

Pakistan 15/1   MA Starc 2-0-6-1

15.1

Starc to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Pakistan have lost their well set pair in a matter of three balls! Starc begins his new spell by bowling full from round the wicket, Kamran made room and tried to hammer it wide of extra cover but the fielder there, White, took a sharp catch falling to his right

15.2

Starc to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, boom! Pitched up on the off stump and Afridi launches it crisply down the ground to long-off

19.2

Starc to Shahid Afridi, OUT, that's as much as it gets with Afridi these days, Starc swung it in sharply from round the wicket, Afridi shuffled a long way across and exposed his stumps and his leg stump went back a couple of yards

Shahid Afridi b Starc 4 (4m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

19.3

Starc to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, low full toss and he clips it away to deep midwicket, not more than a single

19.4

Starc to Umar Akmal, 1 leg bye, another inswinging yorker on the leg stump and he swings and the ball only hits his pads and rolls away

19.5

Starc to Shoaib Malik, 2 runs, almost a repeat of the previous dismissal, shuffled and exposed his stumps, tucked away behind square

19.6

Starc to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, slogs the final ball and mistimes it straight to midwicket, only a single and that will get them to 149
