ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 40th match, Group A

Australia v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 4 wickets (with 54 balls remaining)

44.4

Umar Gul to Lee, FOUR, ooh, a second slip would have had it. As it is the outside edge flew wide of first slip and skimmed to the ropes. 200 must be Australia's target

44.5

Umar Gul to Lee, no run, hooping, late reverse-swing at a full length would have burst through but for Lee's inside edge

44.6

Umar Gul to Lee, no run, this one nips away and past an enquiring outside edge. Much better over from Gul that

Australia 173/8   B Lee 4* (3b 1x4)

45.4

Shahid Afridi to Lee, 1 wide, speared a long way down the leg side

45.4

Shahid Afridi to Lee, 1 run, googly finds the gloves as Lee defends with very low hands, there are no slips in place or catchers up to the crease so Lee can feel safe

Australia 176/8   B Lee 5* (4b 1x4)

46.1

Umar Gul to Lee, no run, this isn't a yorker but it's quick on a length, moving away and carefully blocked to cover

46.2

Umar Gul to Lee, no run, that's the delivery that he's famed for! It snakes back so late homing in on the toes. Lee desperately clamps a bat down in time

46.3

Umar Gul to Lee, no run, yorker followed by a short ball followed by a stare! Excellent bowling, this climbed past Lee

46.4

Umar Gul to Lee, OUT, that's it! Australia slump to 176 all out - their lowest since 1992. Pakistan have a celebratory huddle! Lee aimed a swipe but it got high on the bat and looped to mid-off

B Lee c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 5 (11m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Australia 176/10   B Lee 5 (8b 1x4)
