ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 35th match, Group A

Australia v Canada

Australia won by 7 wickets (with 91 balls remaining)

2.2

Tait to Patel, SIX, my goodness, that is murdered, Shaun Tait bowls one at 148.5 kph, but Hiral seems to be enjoying this battle, stays on the crease and thumps it over extra cover, one leg in the air in cavalier fashion as he does that, and the connection is so neat it goes all the way

Canada 29/0   H Patel 23* (10b 3x4 1x6)   SW Tait 1.2-0-13-0

4.4

Johnson to Patel, SIX, another maximum, not where he intended it, but Canada will take it, Johnson continues to bowl it fuller and wider outside off stump, he had a big swing at it, and got it miles in the air, Lee at third man got into position, but it eluded him and went just over the ropes

Canada 53/1   H Patel 36* (16b 4x4 2x6)   MG Johnson 0.4-0-12-0

5.6

Lee to Patel, SIX, he finally decides to take on the Lee bouncer, and what a way to deal with it, not in a great position but hooks it away in the air, and over deep square leg, what a start this is from Canada

Canada 62/1   H Patel 42* (23b 4x4 3x6)   B Lee 3-0-32-1
