ICC World Twenty20 - 2nd semi final

Australia v West Indies

West Indies won by 74 runs

5.1

Doherty to Samuels, no run, and edge first up. Samuels is lucky it has not carries to slip as he opens the face

5.2

Doherty to Samuels, no run, Samuels is lucky again. This was dead plumb. Umpire Dar has had a slip. This is full, pitches middle, straightens, and is missing both the leg and off stumps. Samuels has got away with one here

5.3

Doherty to Samuels, no run, short, gets a bottom edge on the cut

5.4

Doherty to Samuels, SIX, Samuels gets into the six-hitting act. Full, middle and leg, pretty similar to the leg-before delivery, but he has lofted it clean over long-on

5.5

Doherty to Samuels, 1 run, cut away in front of square

5.6

Doherty to Gayle, SIX, this was on the cards, but to the first ball he aces from regulation left-arm spin? Doherty stays round the stumps to cut the angle, but he still lands it in Gayle's swinging zone, and Gayle sends it rows behind deep midwicket

West Indies 46/1   XJ Doherty 1-0-13-0

9.1

Doherty to Gayle, no run, short of a length, not in his swinging arc, and Gayle defends

9.2

Doherty to Gayle, SIX, full, on off, in his swinging arc, and it goes for a flat six over long-on. Not surprising. Caught well by a policeman in front of the sight screen

9.3

Doherty to Gayle, 1 run, swept away for a single. Doherty will be relieved

9.4

Doherty to Bravo, 1 run, X man slows it down now, cut away for an easy single

9.5

Doherty to Gayle, 1 run, shorter than Gayle expects it, Gayle sweeps, is beaten by the turn, but takes the leg-bye

9.6

Doherty to Bravo, 1 run, full, on off, pushed towards long-on for one

West Indies 74/2   XJ Doherty 2-0-23-0

19.1

Doherty to Gayle, SIX, full toss first ball. Gayle stands tall and pulls this over midwicket for his 16th six of the tournament

19.2

Doherty to Gayle, 1 run, full, on leg, misses out, takes one to short fine leg. He looks in pain when running

19.3

Doherty to Pollard, SIX, that's a flat slog-sweep that doesn't seem to have much elevation on it, but it is enough to clear a leaping Hogg at deep midwicket who gets a hand on it

19.4

Doherty to Pollard, SIX, low full toss, wide outside off, Pollard clears the front leg and hits it for a six over long-off. This is carnage. Call the ambulance. It's a car wreck, this over

19.5

Doherty to Pollard, SIX, Gayle is dancing already. First 200 of the tournament. Full, middle and leg, smoked straight for yet another six. Gayle can't wait for after the match

19.6

Doherty to Pollard, OUT, oh finally a mis-hit finds a fielder. Pollard is looking for a fourth straight six, but this time he slices it high, high, high, and Warner takes a safe catch at long-off. Warner will have to do much more with the bat if we are going to have a match tonight

KA Pollard c Warner b Doherty 38 (22m 15b 3x4 3x6) SR: 253.33

West Indies 205/4   XJ Doherty 3-0-48-1
