Played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (neutral venue)
5 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Hogg to Samuels, SIX, never mind the bat's thickness. This one was played so well he could have hit a six with a ruler. Right down to the pitch of the ball, dead straight, and off the middle of the bat


Hogg to Samuels, no run, a grubber. Samuels is beaten by the low bounce, Wade does well to collect it and attempt a stumping. When he played the cut, Samuels was outside the crease, but got the back foot back in time


Hogg to Samuels, no run, googly, Samuels seems to have picked it off the pitch, but has recovered well to defend


Hogg to Samuels, no run, the legbreak now, but a bit too short. Samuels, though, finds point with the cut


Hogg to Samuels, no run, wrong'un again. The line outside leg seems to be a giveaway, but he draws another defensive shot out of Samuels


Hogg to Samuels, 1 run, they had Gayle where they wanted him, taking a tight single as Samuels dabbed it to backward point, but those strides are big enough to get him in in time

West Indies 53/1   GB Hogg 1-0-7-0

Hogg to Gayle, no run, full, really full, don't know which way it is turning because it is a yorker. Hit back to him


Hogg to Gayle, 1 run, nice delivery, pitches on leg, just short of driving length, turning sharply towards off, swept away softly


Hogg to Bravo, no run, it's a googly first up, Bravo stays back and pushes it to Watson at point


Hogg to Bravo, FOUR, David Hussey's first touch in this tournament is a no-touch. And what a shot he has had to field first up. An inside-out loft from Bravo that bounces just short of him at long-off and then bursts through the hands


Hogg to Bravo, no run, flighted nicely, defended


Hogg to Bravo, no run, quicker delivery, and if not a googly it at least went on with the angle. Beats the Bravo cut

West Indies 64/2   GB Hogg 2-0-12-0

Hogg to Bravo, SIX, wrong'un but too short, and Bravo goes right back into the crease to smack this for a flat six. Not too wide of deep midwicket, but you only have to miss them by a few feet if you hit so powerfully


Hogg to Bravo, no run, full, turning in, beats him in the fight, gets a dot


Hogg to Bravo, no run, Bravo is not picking them. Pushes tentatively to this full delivery, and defends it back


Hogg to Bravo, 1 run, tries the big drive, never mind reading the spin, gets an edge to short third man


Hogg to Gayle, 1 run, quicker lebreak, Gayle waits for it, and opens the face to take a single


Hogg to Bravo, 1 run, down the wicket, Hogg bowls short, Bravo gets a single to long-off

West Indies 113/2   GB Hogg 3-0-21-0
