Stanford 20/20 for 20

Stanford Superstars v England

Stanford Superstars won by 10 wickets (with 44 balls remaining)

1.2

Taylor to Prior, 1 run, Taylor delivers from way behind the popping crease - probably 24 yards in all. Prior's not fooled though, and drives hard into the covers

1.4

Taylor to Prior, no run, Prior feigns a charge down the pitch, Taylor responds by dropping his length, and there's a dot at the end of it

1.5

Taylor to Prior, FOUR, slower ball again, and that's the best shot of the night so far. On the up, through the covers - slightly in the air, but that was creamed

1.6

Taylor to Prior, 1 wide, slower ball, down the leg side. "He's bowling from the wrong end," hollers PA Dave, with mounting animation

1.6

Taylor to Prior, 1 run, slower ball again, defended into the covers, and a good quick single

England 13/0   MJ Prior 6* (4b 1x4)

2.1

Powell to Prior, no run, outside off, Prior stretches to cut, but can't connect

2.2

Powell to Prior, no run, that's a fizzer - on off and cuts back in. Prior is well beaten outside off

2.3

Powell to Prior, 1 run, good aggression - Prior premeditated a shimmy to off, so Powell followed him with a well-directed bouncer. Fended into the leg-side with a tangle of limbs

2.5

Powell to Prior, FOUR, short again, but this time Prior was ready. Backing away and swiping across the line. Got it up and over midwicket, and Sammy slides into the rope to give away the boundary

2.6

Powell to Prior, no run, outside off and a missed cut again

England 19/0   MJ Prior 11* (9b 2x4)

3.2

Taylor to Prior, 1 run, if that had been picked up cleanly, that could well have been out! A miscued swipe from Prior, but he was called through quickly and Taylor couldn't get round in time

3.5

Taylor to Prior, OUT, bowled him! Round his legs as Prior danced across the crease to whip a boundary through fine leg! A misjudgement and an untimely one. His leg stump goes flying and now England have got all the problems!

MJ Prior b Taylor 12 (18m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 109.09

England 22/2   MJ Prior 12 (11b 2x4)
