ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 12th match, Group A

Canada v Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe won by 175 runs

1.3

Price to Davison, OUT, Price strikes. What a performer for Zimbabwe, regularly opens the bowling, and hardly ever disappoints. Davison gives him the charge here, and plays down the wrong line of a flighted delivery that straightens ever so little. Enough to take the top of off. The bail hits the keeper in the throat

JM Davison b Price 0 (5m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Canada 1/1   NR Kumar 1* (1b)   RW Price 0.3-0-1-1

5.3

Price to Kumar, OUT, Price sticks his left hand out and sends back Kumar. He slowed this one down, inviting the drive, Kumar got inside the line, and looked to go towards mid-off, playing half a second too early, and chipping it to the left of Price. No great pace on the ball, and Price takes a good one-handed catch

NR Kumar c & b Price 1 (22m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.00

Canada 7/2   R Gunasekera 5* (15b 1x4)   RW Price 2.3-0-2-2

5.4

Price to Bagai, OUT, Price is on a hat-trick. And what an ordinary way to get out for the captain. It seemed Bagai had decided yesterday he would sweep Price the first ball he faces him. He does. And the ball is slightly shorter than he wants, and there is a touch extra bounce, and the tame top edge is pouched at square leg

A Bagai c Williams b Price 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Canada 7/3   R Gunasekera 5* (15b 1x4)   RW Price 2.4-0-2-3

20.3

Utseya to Hansra, OUT, Utseya's guile works finally. tossed up outside off again, Hansra is pulled out of the crease, and this one goes straight and beats him defensive prod, and he is stumped by a mile. Beaten in flight, beaten by the lack of turn. Stumpings don't come more comprehensive

AS Hansra st †Taibu b Utseya 20 (53m 41b 1x4 1x6) SR: 48.78

Canada 50/4   R Gunasekera 24* (63b 2x4)   P Utseya 4.3-0-17-1

21.1

Lamb to Gunasekera, OUT, with one, come two! Tame dismissal. Pitched middle and off, turning away, looks to run this down to third man. However, it doesn't turn as much as he expects, takes the inside edge, onto the pad, then softly onto the stumps

R Gunasekera b Lamb 24 (76m 64b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Canada 50/5   Rizwan Cheema 0* (3b)   GA Lamb 3.1-0-9-1

22.5

Utseya to Rizwan Cheema, OUT, gone! Too short this eventful stay of Cheema has been. Dismissed by a juicy, leg-side full toss. Well he tried to hit a six, but was early into the shot, and off the back of the bat it lobbed straight to short fine leg. What do we look forward to now?

Rizwan Cheema c Cremer b Utseya 14 (9m 10b 2x4 1x6) SR: 140.00

Canada 66/6   ZE Surkari 2* (3b)   P Utseya 5.5-0-22-2

26.6

Cremer to Gordon, OUT, plumb, absolutely dead plumb. This is the skiddy legbreak, and Gordon's inclination to stay back proves to be lethal this time. The ball pitches middle, rushes through and hits him in front of middle and leg

TG Gordon lbw b Cremer 7 (13m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.00

Canada 78/7   ZE Surkari 5* (8b)   AG Cremer 2-0-4-1

34.3

Cremer to Khurram Chohan, OUT, straighter one or did it just not turn? It is a full delivery, he plays for the turn, and it goes straight on and hits him in front of off, it seems. Rauf upholds the appeal for leg-before. Chohan reviews this, but this is dead, hitting the inside of off stump

Khurram Chohan lbw b Cremer 8 (22m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Canada 97/8   ZE Surkari 15* (31b 1x4)   AG Cremer 5.3-1-16-2

41.2

Lamb to Surkari, 1 wide, OUT, that's No. 9. Good stumping off the wide down the leg side. Lamb saw him coming, bowled flat, middle and leg, and it turned down the leg side, a bit too sharply, but Taibu did well to collect it and then whip the bails off

ZE Surkari st †Taibu b Lamb 26 (70m 48b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.16

Canada 122/9   HS Baidwan 13* (23b 1x4)   GA Lamb 7.1-0-28-2

42.1

Cremer to Balaji Rao, OUT, bowled'im! Leggie to leggie! Through the gate. Beauty. Pitches outside off, draws the left-hand batsman into a forward defensive, then turns it between the bat and pad and takes top of off. All over at Jamtha

WD Balaji Rao b Cremer 1 (3m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Canada 123/10   HS Baidwan 13* (23b 1x4)   AG Cremer 7.1-1-31-3
