Australia v Canada

Australia won by 7 wickets (with 91 balls remaining)

3.5

Lee to Davison, OUT, that will do for Lee, and that will be the end of John Davison for one final time, the slow bouncer from Brett, got Davison in an awkward position as he tried to go for the hook, the ball took the glove and lobbed away to Haddin who pouched it

JM Davison c †Haddin b Lee 14 (19m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Canada 41/1   H Patel 24* (12b 3x4 1x6)   B Lee 1.5-0-24-1

11.3

Watson to Patel, OUT, finally Hiral's adventurous innings is over, he went for the slash to a short and wide delivery, got on his toes to counter the bounce, but got it high in the air, and safely down to Mitch on the third man boundary who takes it cleanly, but what a knock from the kid

H Patel c Johnson b Watson 54 (58m 45b 5x4 3x6) SR: 120.00

Canada 82/2   ZE Surkari 6* (13b 1x4)   SR Watson 2.3-0-6-1

28.2

Tait to Bagai, OUT, that will do, Tait finally has a wicket, another short and wide enough, Bagai went flailing at it, had to reach out for it, and got a thick edge which Haddin took easily, thrown it away really, he was looking in control

A Bagai c †Haddin b Tait 39 (74m 55b 6x4 0x6) SR: 70.90

Canada 150/3   ZE Surkari 30* (59b 2x4)   SW Tait 5.2-1-31-1

29.6

Krejza to Hansra, OUT, Krejza gets reward for tossing the ball up, he went for the big one down the ground, but with the turn Krejza is getting, got it in the air for Lee to take a fine low catch running in from long on, mid off was in the circle, but the turn did Hansra in

AS Hansra c Lee b Krejza 3 (8m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Canada 157/4   ZE Surkari 34* (65b 2x4)   JJ Krejza 7-0-31-1

30.4

Tait to Surkari, OUT, bowled 'em, 147.1 kph fuller one outside off stump, he had been stung by that blow the previous delivery and went for the ambitious cover drive, got an inside edge that clattered on to the stumps

ZE Surkari b Tait 34 (130m 69b 2x4 0x6) SR: 49.27

Canada 157/5   Rizwan Cheema 0* (0b)   SW Tait 6.4-1-32-2

31.3

Lee to Rizwan Cheema, OUT, Lee with the broadest of smiles, 115.1 kph, what a comedown in pace, super slower one, bang on middle stump, Cheema had no clue about it, doesn't help it the normal pace is around 145, plays all over it too early, and the ball takes out middle stump

Rizwan Cheema b Lee 2 (12m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Canada 161/6   NR Kumar 2* (3b)   B Lee 4.3-0-39-2

36.3

Johnson to Kumar, OUT, Nitish has had enough of all this searching examination from the quicks, he gets a fuller one and tries to lift it back over Johnson's head, but only gets it high in the air for mid off to settle under it

NR Kumar c Tait b Johnson 7 (26m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.88

Canada 169/7   K Whatham 1* (15b)   MG Johnson 8.3-0-34-1

41.2

Krejza to Baidwan, OUT, Krejza gets him this time, got him to charge down the track and have a big heave, the ball went miles in the air, enough for both Smith and Ponting to go for the catch, Ponting it is who takes it cleanly in the end, just brushes into Smith who was hanging around, and then bangs the ball in to the ground in anger

HS Baidwan c Ponting b Krejza 17 (17m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 121.42

Canada 195/8   K Whatham 9* (30b 1x4)   JJ Krejza 9.2-0-42-2

43.6

Lee to Balaji Rao, OUT, Lee gets one on the stumps, and shatters them, from round the wicket with that angle, Balaji looked to flick it, but played all around it,

WD Balaji Rao b Lee 5 (10m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Canada 204/9   K Whatham 13* (34b 1x4)   B Lee 8-0-45-3

45.4

Lee to Whatham, OUT, 145.5 kph high full toss gets Lee his fourth, Whatham backed away to the leg side, and looked to have a go at it, but it was too quick for him, and took out the stumps off the inside edge

K Whatham b Lee 18 (57m 41b 2x4 0x6) SR: 43.90

Canada 211/10   H Osinde 2* (3b)   B Lee 8.4-0-46-4
