ICC World Twenty20 - 2nd semi final

Australia v West Indies

West Indies won by 74 runs

2.5

Starc to Charles, OUT, Charles is gone. Starc has struck. Perhaps this attack is too good for him. Starc has been swinging the ball back in, but this is short of a length, and goes with the angle. All Charles manages is an edge through to Wade

J Charles c †Wade b Starc 10 (14m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

West Indies 16/1   CH Gayle 3* (4b)   MA Starc 1.5-0-6-1

7.2

Cummins to Samuels, OUT, Timbahhh. Slower ball at 116ks, and the middle stump lays flat. Samuels plays the odd ungainly slog this time, and is comprehensively deceived by the slower one

MN Samuels b Cummins 26 (23m 20b 2x4 2x6) SR: 130.00

West Indies 57/2   CH Gayle 16* (11b 2x6)   PJ Cummins 1.2-0-11-1

15.5

Cummins to Bravo, OUT, good field placement. It's Bailey himself at straight extra cover and Bravo has hit this length ball straight to him. Some relief for Australia, but West Indies keep coming at you with their big hitters: Pollard, Russell and Sammy to follow

DJ Bravo c Bailey b Cummins 37 (37m 31b 1x4 3x6) SR: 119.35

West Indies 140/3   CH Gayle 51* (31b 3x4 4x6)   PJ Cummins 2.5-0-21-2

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   CH Gayle 75* (41b 5x4 6x6)   XJ Doherty 3-0-48-1
