Champions League Twenty20, 6th Match, Group A: Warriors v Victoria at Port Elizabeth, Sep 13, 2010
Champions League Twenty20 - 6th match, Group A
Warriors won by 28 runs
13 September 2010 - day/night match (20-over match)

Two slips in for Jacobs

5.27 Sonny: "Just Wondering Shouldnt Mike Hussey be in the Bushrangers Team??" Doesn't Mike play for Western Australia? We are close to the start. Victoria walk out to take the field. Ashwell Prince and Davey Jacobs are the Warriors' openers

5.25pm Dave again: "Doesn't BCCI's agreement with other boards supersede IPL owners' agreements as BCCI (and the other boards) are the owners of the whole competition? How did Greg Shipherd coach Victoria instead of Dehli at CLT20 2009? What happened to the agreement there?" Well, as far as I know, BCCI doesn't get into contracts with anyone. It's the IPL teams that get into contracts. And also, sending a mail once is enough, mate. We are not any more likely to read it if you send the same mail 15 times.

5.22pm Alter. G, who I cheesed off with my experiments with Queen's English last night, wants to know who I am. Sidharth Monga, here, calling this match and many others during the League. Meanwhile Phil has reassured two men in one mail. "Not at all, a great fan of the great man [Vijay Mallya]," he writes. "Like Sriram, I keep dropping my mobile." I knew Kamran Akmal would never feel lonely

5.20pm Phil, on the IPL-side-v-regional-side debate: "My admiration for Mr Mallya has just increased 100 fold." I can only hope he is not being sarcastic.

Meanwhile Pankaj Pokhariyal is laughing away at Sriram Veera. He writes: 'PUK - Pin Unblocking Key. U need to call ur Custo care to provide that as simple as that

5.15pm Back to Sriram and his adventures in South Africa. "If you are in PE don't drop your phone," he says. "I did. The back cover came out. It has happened thousands of time in India, even when I was not drunk. Here it was the beginning of the end. The phone asked for some Pin no. It then sulked and asked for some Puk code. I puked. Then of to the shop. Two hours later they pronounced us chuck and larry. Er 'the sim card is dead. You want to sim-swap?' Whatever. I ended up buying another one. Welcome to PE."

Seriously, though, how did South Africa grant him visa again after his rudeness there last year?

5.10pm Dave has an interesting question: "Can you clear something up us: Cricinfo told us that with Cameron White's contract as it is at the moment, he had no choice but to represent Banagalore, but Nine MSN said that White CHOSE Bangalore over Victoria. Regardless of the amount of money White was showered with, did he have a choice or not? Didn't the boards (CA, SACB, ECB and BCCI) sign an agreement before the first IPL that players had choose their home teams in case of such a scenario?"

There are two types of obligations involved here. If a player chooses his IPL side over his regional side, the IPL side has to pay $200,000 to the said regional team. However, Bangalore's owners are smart businessmen, and when they signed the players up, they had a clause that said the choice would be theirs, and not the players'. Which is perfectly fine, as the players - I assume - would have read the contracts before signing them

5.05pm Sriram Veera has made his way to Port Elizabeth, which can't be such a good news for the city. He says, "There are around 500 people in the ground. The organisers say the rest are coming in. PE is quiet, laidback, no one is in a rush to go anywhere. Or so they say". Doesn't even trust the organisers. "Or so they say", it seems

Sonny seems to have got it wrong. He says, "Typical from Aussies Win the Toss and BAT!!!!! well done though even tho im from NSW c'mon Bushrangers!!!" News flash: Warriors have won the toss and chosen to bat

Toss Davey Jacobs informs that Mark Boucher has recovered sufficiently from his shoulder injury. And he has won the toss, and Warriors have chosen to bat.

4.55pm It's five to 1am in Melbourne, and close to 5pm in Port Elizabeth. We are five minutes from the toss

4.50pm Time for the most fancied side in the tournament to play their first game. Just sample the Victoria Bushrangers' XI: David Hussey and Brad Hodge, the two highest run-getters, in the format. Dirk Nannes, the highest wicket-taker. Hussey will today become the most-capped player, tied with Albie Morkel at 128 games, and Hodge will play his 100th. Imagine if Cameron White had not signed that contract that said he would have to represent Bangalore if both his teams qualified. And also imagine, if Ross Taylor had chosen Victoria too. And just imagine if the man who turned 41 today had not retired.

Warriors are up against it, but they are at home, they have had a winning start, and the Champions League is a format made for upsets

Team lists have come in. Warriors are playing the same XI that beat Wayamba, and Victoria are going in without Bryce McGain and Peter Siddle. Toss in 10 minutes


Nannes to Jacobs, 4 leg byes, big inswinger, but swings too far down the leg side, and nicks the pad on the way, far too wide of Wade


Nannes to Jacobs, FOUR, nice nice start for the Warriors, this is full and wide, zero swing, and Jacobs gets on a knee and crashes this square


Nannes to Jacobs, 1 wide, called wide, pitches back of a length outside off, and seams away


Nannes to Jacobs, no run, decent comeback from Nannes, 143ks, just outside off, seaming away, beats his poke


Nannes to Jacobs, FOUR, Jacobs is taking his chances and they are paying off. Sharp bouncer, 148ks, and he pulls, but it loops up square on the leg side, inches wide of the diving fielder. The outfield is quick enough for this mis-timed shot to go for four


Nannes to Jacobs, no run, first defensive shot, towards cover


Nannes to Jacobs, FOUR, shot! Top-class. Stands tall, and punches this one the up, lovely timing as it goes flying across, between backward point and cover-point

End of over 1 (17 runs) Warriors 17/0 (RR: 17.00)

    • DJ Jacobs 12 (6b 3x4)
    • AG Prince 0 (0b)
    • DP Nannes 1-0-13-0

Shane Harwood is to share the new ball


Harwood to Prince, 1 run, Prince hands over the strike to the man on fire, Jacobs, bunting this into the leg side


Harwood to Jacobs, FOUR, Jacobs is not going to die wondering here. Short ball, and he cuts, not convincing as it goes off the toe end, but over the cover infield nonetheless

Sriram from PE: "To Pankaj Er .. the guys at telecom shop couldn't fix it. I am imbecile - that's why i joined cricinfo- but those guys ... Hmm I have collected their resumes to give it to my HR department."


Harwood to Jacobs, 1 run, steered to third man for one


Harwood to Prince, no run, rare defensive shot, towards midwicket


Harwood to Prince, 2 runs, slower ball, 121ks, flicked uppishly but past midwicket

Jeremy James: "With regards to PE being laid back, let me just say that many south africans are livid at their failure to get to the stadium. PE failed to sell a large % of World Cup 2010 tickets, while we in Durban & other parts found demand greater than supply. Yet again they embarrass us by the number of empty seats. Yes embarrass. But they are still given games. Do me a favor and look up attendance records at that windy city and it should prove that they suck."


Harwood to Prince, FOUR, ordinary bowling! With the fine leg up, Harwood bowls a gentle length ball on the pads. Prince obliges by guiding it past short fine leg

End of over 2 (12 runs) Warriors 29/0 (RR: 14.50)

    • AG Prince 7 (4b 1x4)
    • DJ Jacobs 17 (8b 4x4)
    • SM Harwood 1-0-12-0
    • DP Nannes 1-0-13-0

Nannes to Jacobs, no run, backs away big time, Nannes bowls short and into the body, all he can manage is to hit it back to the bowler. Limply


Nannes to Jacobs, 1 run, back of a length, on the pads, worked around the corner


Nannes to Prince, 1 run, nicely punched on the up, between mid-off and extra cover, gets a single

Tim Huguenin's latest email reminds me that Western Australia are also called Warriors. Too bad they didn't qualify. It would have been much fun to have Warriors v Warriors. Umpire would have said "fight" as opposed to "play"


Nannes to Jacobs, no run, back of a length, cramping him up


Nannes to Jacobs, no run, slower ball, around off, defended


Nannes to Jacobs, no run, strange umpiring here. Short ball outside leg, and they appeal for a catch. The umpire reckons this is neither a wide nor a catch, while the only thing that could have touched the ball was bat

End of over 3 (2 runs) Warriors 31/0 (RR: 10.33)

    • DJ Jacobs 18 (13b 4x4)
    • AG Prince 8 (5b 1x4)
    • DP Nannes 2-0-15-0
    • SM Harwood 1-0-12-0

Clint McKay, possessor of a superb slower ball, is to bowl now


McKay to Prince, 1 run, back of a length, on the pads, tucked away for one


McKay to Jacobs, no run, holds its line outside off, beating a wild heave-ho from Jacobs


McKay to Jacobs, 2 runs, crashed to deep point, where Maxwell fumbles to let them come back for two


McKay to Jacobs, no run, lovely slower ball, 109ks, no giveaway there, and beats Jacobs outside off


McKay to Jacobs, no run, full, drilled down the ground, but straight to mid-off


McKay to Jacobs, 1 run, another slower ball, guided to short third - he has his field right

End of over 4 (4 runs) Warriors 35/0 (RR: 8.75)

    • DJ Jacobs 21 (18b 4x4)
    • AG Prince 9 (6b 1x4)
    • CJ McKay 1-0-4-0
    • DP Nannes 2-0-15-0

Paras: "I don't know why Pollard is called the freelancer of T-20 when Nannes has done it all.. Netherlands, Australia, Delhi Daredevils, Victoria!!" I still don't understand why that disqualifies Pollard from being a freelancer. Harwood to bowl meanwhile, replacing Nannes


Harwood to Jacobs, no run, Jacobs backs away too far too early, and Harwood follows him with a nasty bouncer, beating him on the upper-cut


Harwood to Jacobs, FOUR, that should tell Jacobs to stand still and play proper cricketing shots! Stands tall here, gets behind the line of a length ball and punches it square on the off side


Harwood to Jacobs, FOUR, okay he can move around in the crease! Picks a slower ball early, shuffles right across the stumps and nearly sweeps this low full toss for a six! Just lands inside, though


Harwood to Jacobs, SIX, Jacobs is on some fire here! Goes deep into the crease, expecting a yorker, turning this into a low full toss, and then smashes it over long-on. Top T20 batting


Harwood to Jacobs, FOUR, this is superb stuff. Jacobs goes right back into the crease, and bludgeons a full and wide delivery between mid-off and extra cover. Harwood running out of ideas here


Harwood to Jacobs, 1 run, and he keeps the strike too, steering this to third man for one

End of over 5 (19 runs) Warriors 54/0 (RR: 10.80)

    • DJ Jacobs 40 (24b 7x4 1x6)
    • AG Prince 9 (6b 1x4)
    • SM Harwood 2-0-31-0
    • CJ McKay 1-0-4-0

McKay to Jacobs, FOUR, Is this the best of the lot? Just a check-punch! He has just met it, said hello, and sent the length ball smack between mid-off and extra cover


McKay to Jacobs, 1 run, runs this down to third man for one


McKay to Prince, 1 run, shuffles right across the stumps, gets an inside edge onto the pad, gets Jacobs back on strike


McKay to Jacobs, no run, another slower ball, gets a thick edge towards short third


McKay to Jacobs, 1 run, full outside off, driven to sweeper-cover for one


McKay to Prince, 1 run, seems him charge down the track and slips in a slower ball. Prince checks his shot and keeps going for a single, making it in time

End of over 6 (8 runs) Warriors 62/0 (RR: 10.33)

    • AG Prince 11 (8b 1x4)
    • DJ Jacobs 46 (28b 8x4 1x6)
    • CJ McKay 2-0-12-0
    • SM Harwood 2-0-31-0

Victoria were favourites six overs ago. Anyway Andrew McDonald to to bowl now. Keeper is up to the wicket


McDonald to Prince, 1 run, back of a length from round the stumps, worked away into the leg side for an easy single


McDonald to Jacobs, no run, slower offcutter outside off, defended towards point


McDonald to Jacobs, 2 runs, now the touch! short ball, flicked into the leg side, softly, so that deep midwicket has to run in, and he steals the second


McDonald to Jacobs, FOUR, that's his fifty! Not his best shot but he will take it, pushing without any feet movement, and gets an edge, fine and strong, between the keeper and short third man


McDonald to Jacobs, no run, presses forward to defend this one


McDonald to Jacobs, no run, pulls the length back a little, Jacobs pats it back to the bowler

End of over 7 (7 runs) Warriors 69/0 (RR: 9.85)

    • DJ Jacobs 52 (33b 9x4 1x6)
    • AG Prince 12 (9b 1x4)
    • AB McDonald 1-0-7-0
    • CJ McKay 2-0-12-0

KM is assigning some super powers to the Warriors here. "Oh boy.. This is why knowing local conditions is so valuable. Warriors seem to be possessing the ability to foresee the ball before it's being delivered.." John Hastings to bowl now


Hastings to Prince, 1 run, short loosener, pulled away to deep midwicket


Hastings to Jacobs, 1 run, slower ball, worked to midwicket for one


Hastings to Prince, 1 leg bye, shuffles across, looking to go past short fine leg, but can't make contact, gets a leg-bye


Hastings to Jacobs, 1 run, makes room, Hastings bowl slow, full and wide, gets a single off the toe of the bat


Hastings to Prince, 1 run, dragged across to long-on for one


Hastings to Jacobs, 1 run, low full toss, driven to long-off for one

End of over 8 (6 runs) Warriors 75/0 (RR: 9.37)

    • DJ Jacobs 55 (36b 9x4 1x6)
    • AG Prince 14 (12b 1x4)
    • JW Hastings 1-0-5-0
    • AB McDonald 1-0-7-0

McDonald to Jacobs, 2 runs, slower ball, and beautifully and calculatingly pushed smack between deep square and deep midwicket. This is a small ground, and he is stealing couples here

KM: "Not to mention that Warriors also have mastered how to play the "not so good shot!" Exactly what I meant with the previous ball


McDonald to Jacobs, 1 run, worked away with the angle for a single

round the wicket to the left-hand batsman


McDonald to Prince, 1 bye, looks for an ungainly sweep, is beaten by the offcutter, but the keeper is beaten too, and he gets a bye


McDonald to Jacobs, 1 run, helped away for one with the angle


McDonald to Prince, no run, Prince backs away, McDonald follows him, and then fields the ball


McDonald to Prince, 1 run, slog-swept, just for a single to deep midwicket

End of over 9 (6 runs) Warriors 81/0 (RR: 9.00)

    • AG Prince 15 (15b 1x4)
    • DJ Jacobs 59 (39b 9x4 1x6)
    • AB McDonald 2-0-12-0
    • JW Hastings 1-0-5-0

Hastings to Prince, no run, Prince plays another ungainly shot, looking to pull from way outside off, beaten again


Hastings to Prince, OUT, what have they done here? Jacobs's innings comes to a strange end. Prince, who has been stuck without many runs, tries to manufacture another, dancing down the track, but hits straight to midwicket. It is perhaps the momentum of having charged down, but he keeps running, Jacobs is late to respond, McDonald keeps his wits and throws to the striker's end, accurately. On his way back, Jacobs gives a thumbs-up to Prince, telling him not to bother about the run-out

DJ Jacobs run out 59 (38m 39b 9x4 1x6) SR: 151.28

Ingram is the new batsman


Hastings to Ingram, no run, gets a bouncer first time, ducks under it


Hastings to Ingram, 1 run, almost caught at long-on, but falls short


Hastings to Prince, 1 run, full, on the pads, worked away for one


Hastings to Ingram, no run, back of a length, punched to straight extra cover

End of over 10 (2 runs) Warriors 83/1 (RR: 8.30)

    • CA Ingram 1 (3b)
    • AG Prince 16 (18b 1x4)
    • JW Hastings 2-0-7-0
    • AB McDonald 2-0-12-0

Tim Huguenin, though, is not as generous as Jcobs: "Prince is keeping us in the game!"


McDonald to Prince, OUT, and now Prince is gone too! Another strange dismissal, he has premeditated to scoop this over fine leg, McD bowls full and wide, gets a top edge that goes nowhere. Wade, though, doesn't realise it is going to fall right behind him. Wakes up late, but puts in the required dive to complete the catch

AG Prince c †Wade b McDonald 16 (42m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

Mark Boucher is the new man in. Good move


McDonald to Boucher, 1 run, back of a length, punched to cover

AK: 'Aarrghhh....I was seeing cricinfo all along and Jacobs was destroying Victoria. Now, I decided to see it on an free streaming link and Jacobs gets out first ball I see. So much for the illegal cricket streaming links on internet." That's how your conscience plays little psychological games with you


McDonald to Ingram, 1 run, driven down to long-off for one


McDonald to Boucher, 1 run, into the pads, worked away for one

I can imagine a smirk on Tim's face. "Well it was good while it lasted," he says


McDonald to Ingram, 1 run, opens the face towards short third for one


McDonald to Boucher, 1 run, pushed to long-on for another single

End of over 11 (5 runs) Warriors 88/2 (RR: 8.00)

    • MV Boucher 3 (3b)
    • CA Ingram 3 (5b)
    • AB McDonald 3-0-17-1
    • JW Hastings 2-0-7-0

Anirud: "Whos the man thats turned 41 today, who hasnt retired?!" Well I never said he has not retired. Meanwhile, Shane Harwood comes back


Harwood to Boucher, 1 run, and bowls another ordinary delivery, sliding down the leg side, lucky to get away with just a single


Harwood to Ingram, FOUR, better delivery, but it has been edged away for four! Looking to punch this, away from the body, the thick edge places itself nicely between the keeper and third man


Harwood to Ingram, 1 run, heaved into the on side for one


Harwood to Boucher, 1 run, stays low, but Boucher does well to pull it towards deep midwicket

Some redemption for PE. Mr Veera has had a change of heart. "And PE has the greatest view from the press box," he says. "Of all time. Right over the sightscreen. A Test match from up here would make for a great watching experience."


Harwood to Ingram, OUT, another wicket! Victoria are right back. Ingram goes for the big swipe down the ground and gets too much under it, skying it to long-on

CA Ingram c Maxwell b Harwood 8 (12m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Harwood to Boucher, no run, gentle full toss, but hit straight to cover

End of over 12 (7 runs) Warriors 95/3 (RR: 7.91)

    • MV Boucher 5 (6b)
    • JP Kreusch 0 (0b)
    • SM Harwood 3-0-38-1
    • AB McDonald 3-0-17-1

Kreusch, the new man, to face now


McDonald to Kreusch, 1 run, gets a single first ball, to long-on


McDonald to Boucher, 1 run, back of a length, worked with the angle, gets a single

Adam thinks Shane Warne has turned 42 today. Adam, Idon'tthinkso


McDonald to Kreusch, OUT, flashy stumping! Quite inexplicable why he overbalances here, looking to push this into the covers, he misses it, then his back foot is dragged outside, and Wade is alert and quick

JP Kreusch st †Wade b McDonald 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Johan Botha is the new man in


McDonald to Botha, no run, pushed to cover


McDonald to Botha, 1 run, bad shot really, scoop/paddle with the fine leg back. Good for him that he didn't time it well, and it bounced before the fielder


McDonald to Boucher, 2 runs, that's the not-too-good shot again, gently tapped between long-on and midwicket, making sure they have to run both sideways and in, and comes back for two

End of over 13 (5 runs) Warriors 100/4 (RR: 7.69)

    • MV Boucher 8 (8b)
    • J Botha 1 (2b)
    • AB McDonald 4-0-22-2
    • SM Harwood 3-0-38-1

Panda: "Why, oh why do classy batsmen such as Prince resort to flippant pre-meditated shot-making in this game? South Africa batsmen can't seem to get that little pancake-flip of a shot right..." Oh hold on! Boucher doesn't look too good. He has hurt his shoulder again while coming back for that two. Hope he hasn't dislocated it. Taking a painkiller as we speak

KM is still after Suresh Raina: 'Poor AK experienced the effect of Sod's law. You have to remember that in T20, "Anything can happen." Courtesy Suresh Raina."

And Nannes the menace comes back


Nannes to Botha, no run, starts with a slower offcutter, beating him outside off

Johan Venter is thinking laterally. "How many times haven't we seen this?" he asks. "A great start that falls apart once the 1st wicket falls. Maybe teams really shouldn't get off to good starts." Meanwhile one bright boundary board next to the sight screen has stopped play


Nannes to Botha, 1 run, length ball outside off, hit to sweeper-cover for one

Ravi throws back my words at me. "Six overs ago, Victoria were not favourites!" And I eat them humbly

Tim again: "Great spell from McDonald. Shows his class time and time again. Australian selectors need to realise he'd be such an asset in their one day and T20 sides. Much better than James Hopes." I would go with Hopes, though. Better bowler for me


Nannes to Boucher, FOUR, superb shot, the shoulder seems fine! Pulls this from outside off, but wide of deep midwicket

More lateral thinking. Ashley Melvin: "Isn't it Chandika Hathurusingha who is celebrating his 41st birthday today." He is celebrating his birthday all right, but 42nd. And he has nothing much to do with Victoria


Nannes to Boucher, no run, short again, but this pull he doesn't quite connect

AK: "KM and other Warrior fans. I take personal responsibility for the collapse. I tried to quit watching the game and getting updates on cricinfo, but it doesn't work. I'll try watching again when Victoria is batting." What's with these Bollywood-villain-style initials. AK, KM...


Nannes to Boucher, 1 run, flicked to deep midwicket


Nannes to Botha, 1 run, full and wide, driven away for another one

End of over 14 (7 runs) Warriors 107/4 (RR: 7.64)

    • J Botha 3 (5b)
    • MV Boucher 13 (11b 1x4)
    • DP Nannes 3-0-22-0
    • AB McDonald 4-0-22-2

Shih-Lon: "I reckon the ground staff had a convenient technical error with the ad sign to give Boucher a bit of time to let the painkillers kick in." Ahh I love conspiracy theories. Hussey to bowl


Hussey to Botha, 1 run, reverse-sweeps the first ball, gets a single to short third


Hussey to Boucher, 1 run, shaping up for the big sweep, but Hussey bowls this real slow, can get only a single off the underside edge


Hussey to Botha, 2 runs, nicely chipped over extra cover for two


Hussey to Botha, 1 run, low full toss, hit to long-on for one


Hussey to Boucher, FOUR, shot! Sizzler! Makes room, and crashes this past the bowler, all along the turf but fast enough to beat the diving long-on


Hussey to Boucher, 2 runs, dropped! Was an easy catch too! Boucher goes for the slog seep, gets a top edge towards cow corner, the fielder from long-on, Maxwell, gets there, right under it, but doesn't hold onto it

End of over 15 (11 runs) Warriors 118/4 (RR: 7.86)

    • MV Boucher 20 (14b 2x4)
    • J Botha 7 (8b)
    • DJ Hussey 1-0-11-0
    • DP Nannes 3-0-22-0

McKay to Botha, 3 runs, nicely driven, past extra cover, along the ground, gets three


McKay to Boucher, 1 run, full, driven to long-on for one


McKay to Botha, 1 run, slower one, pulled to deep midwicket for one


McKay to Boucher, no run, slower ball, full toss, and Bouhcer misses it altogether

Mark: 'My bro turns 41 today.. He's a teacher in a public school in Melbourne, and hasn't retired yet... Hope you got your answer..." And what might your last name be?


McKay to Boucher, no run, yorker outside off, nicely bowled


McKay to Boucher, 1 run, goes for another wide yorker, dragged to long-on for one

End of over 16 (6 runs) Warriors 124/4 (RR: 7.75)

    • MV Boucher 22 (18b 2x4)
    • J Botha 11 (10b)
    • CJ McKay 3-0-18-0
    • DJ Hussey 1-0-11-0

The Duke, John Wayne Hastings, to bowl


Hastings to Boucher, 1 run, superb fielding from Nannes. He digs out a yorker nicely, it's running past short fine but Nannes makes a desperate lunge


Hastings to Botha, 1 run, another yorker, single down the ground


Hastings to Boucher, no run, slower ball, Boucher looks to go over short fine, but fails to make contact


Hastings to Boucher, 1 run, lovely yorker, only a single to short fine


Hastings to Botha, FOUR, another yorker, squeezed wide of short third, within diving distance of Harwood but he doesn't make it. Hastings is fuming


Hastings to Botha, FOUR, slower ball, sees early, and pulls it over midwicket. What was looking like a superb over until two balls ago has been ruined

End of over 17 (11 runs) Warriors 135/4 (RR: 7.94)

    • J Botha 20 (13b 2x4)
    • MV Boucher 24 (21b 2x4)
    • JW Hastings 3-0-18-0
    • CJ McKay 3-0-18-0

Dave Perl: "and my 58th birthday is tomorrow. So I'm worn out, not warne"


McKay to Boucher, 2 wides, looking for the slower ball, wide outside off, but it cuts away too much


McKay to Botha, OUT, they finally put some brakes on Warriors' second coming! Botha hits a low full toss down towards long-on where Quiney takes a good low catch, diving forward. That's more like Australian fielding

J Botha c Quiney b McKay 20 (27m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 142.85


McKay to Boucher, no run, lovely slower ball, Boucher is done playing with the shot, and grimacing in disappointment... and then the ball arrives


McKay to Boucher, 1 run, follows it up with a yorker that goes for one to long-on


McKay to Thyssen, 1 run, low full toss, hit down to long-off for one


McKay to Boucher, FOUR, nicle yplayed, McKay's yorker goes wrong, Bouhcer sees a nice full toss, quickly shuffles across and paddles it between fine leg and keeper


McKay to Boucher, 1 run, gets the yorker right this time, hit to long-on for one

End of over 18 (9 runs) Warriors 144/5 (RR: 8.00)

    • MV Boucher 30 (25b 3x4)
    • CA Thyssen 1 (1b)
    • CJ McKay 4-0-27-1
    • JW Hastings 3-0-18-0

Nannes's last over


Nannes to Boucher, 1 leg bye, hits him in the thigh with a short ball, Wade dives to his right to field, but they steal a leg-bye


Nannes to Thyssen, 1 run, length ball, gets a single to long-on, brings Boucher on strike


Nannes to Boucher, 1 run, makes room, Nannes follows him, gets only a single to long-off


Nannes to Thyssen, 1 leg bye, nice yorker outside leg, gets just a leg-bye


Nannes to Boucher, OUT, bowled 'im! Misses a straight and fast delivery! Looking for the slog, and just playing all around it

MV Boucher b Nannes 31 (44m 28b 3x4 0x6) SR: 110.71

Nicky Boje is the new batsman


Nannes to Boje, 1 run, and he runs this down to third man for a single

End of over 19 (5 runs) Warriors 149/6 (RR: 7.84)

    • N Boje 1 (1b)
    • CA Thyssen 2 (3b)
    • DP Nannes 4-0-25-1
    • CJ McKay 4-0-27-1

Harwood to bowl the last over


Harwood to Boje, 1 run, driven down to long-off for a single


Harwood to Thyssen, 1 run, full, just outside off, driven down to long-off for one


Harwood to Boje, 1 run, nice yorker, but nicely dug out too, towards third man from outside the leg stump


Harwood to Thyssen, FOUR, looks for the yorker, misses both his line and length, bowling a low full toss down the leg side, and Thyssen gets it past short fine leg. Much-needed boundary


Harwood to Thyssen, 1 run, looks for the slog but gets an inside edge onto the pad


Harwood to Boje, 1 run, yorker this time, hit back to Harwood, who misfilds, allowing them a single

Warriors won't be happy with this after the start Jacobs gave them. Do join us for the chase. Soon
