Watto signs out with a blinder
Shane Watson entered this match not knowing if it would be the last of his international career. He had a night to remember, particularly with the ball. But his most memorable moment arguably came off the bowling of James Faulkner, when Yuvraj Singh lobbed the ball up towards cover. Watson had to run back and to his right and looked no chance of getting there, but a desperate dive paid off when the ball stuck in his right hand. It looked more like the work of a lithe young athlete, not a 34-year-old injury-prone allrounder in the last tournament of his career.
India have not tried to mix things up too much in this tournament, using the same 11 players in every match. But they can still spring a surprise. When MS Dhoni called on Yuvraj in the 10th over of Australia's innings, it was Yuvraj's first chance to bowl in the tournament. How did he repay his skipper? With a wicket first ball. Yuvraj found spin and bounce and, in the opinion of the umpire Marais Erasmus, Steven Smith's outside edge through to Dhoni. Smith was unhappy with the decision of the umpire; Dhoni was thrilled with his own.
The stumping that wasn't
A good wicketkeeper will keep an eye on the batsman's back leg when up to the stumps, and be ready to whip the bails off if said leg lifts off the ground. Peter Nevill noticed Yuvraj Singh lift his back foot, he just got the timing wrong with his gloves. Yuvraj missed Adam Zampa's googly and Nevill hesitated before taking the bails off. The third umpire was called, and replays showed Nevill moved his hands forward as Yuvraj lifted his foot, but baulked from taking off the bails. By the time he decided to do so, Yuvraj was back in safe territory.
At his best, Glenn Maxwell can leave you lost for words. When he is struggling he looks as fluent as Manuel from Fawlty Towers. But it was the Indians who were left wondering - que? - when Maxwell smashed his way out of a poor start in this game. He scratched his way to 21 from 24 balls without a boundary, but then came a conventional slog-swept four and next ball a switch-hit for six. Ravindra Jadeja sent down a low full toss and Maxwell, with the slick hands of a magician, switched his grip on the bat and slogged a six left-handed over what had started as cover.
