Champions League Twenty20 - 2nd semi final

Warriors v South Australia

Warriors won by 30 runs

I am Nitin Sundar, starting off commentary, and I will be joined by Abhishek Purohit later in the game. Sriram Veera is punching out the bulletin from Centurion. Venkat Raghav and Sanjay Murari are handling scoring duties. Out come the openers Jacobs and Prince, time for some high quality T20 cricket. Tait has the ball. Two slips in place. Play!

17.24 Sridhar sends in this valid observation: "Its good to see two teams without any "star" players fight out for the place in finals. they clearly show what a bunch of committed, determined guys can do even if they don't have that "star" tag. Its hard to pick who will come out as winners, but my pick is warriors competing for the trophy on sunday...watch out for M Boucher, he is long due a great innings, today could be his day." Anupam Singh sends this confusing message, not sure if he's following cricket or boxing. "It seems that i am watching the match on tv.. and the punches in between are icing on the cake."

17.17 Great news for cricket fans around the world. This is Dale Steyn on twitter: "Suffered mild concussion & blow 2my back! Wat doesn't kill u... only ruined my weekend! Haha!" Hope to see him back in action soon. Even better news for cricket fans around the world - we are hiring! Click here for more details.

Harsha Bhogle on air makes a fair point when he says, "this could be one of the more athletic matches in the tournament." Two superb fielding sides these, and whoever makes it to the final will have an advantage over Chennai tomorrow in that department. Kaushik enquires about the weather, after the big delay we had yesterday. The weather looks fine, the sun is out in all its glory.

17.12 Phil updates us with happenings from around the world. "Neither of the Force India cars made it to Q3 in Singapore. The Labour Party will announce its new leader in 30 minutes and then there is this match." Sekhar has started off with the pattern recognition. "The South African team which made it to the semis in the 2009 CLT20 (Cape Cobras) was knocked out by a team in red (T&T). Will we see the same story today as well? Will we get to see a Yellow vs Red finals this time? Last year T&T,the men in red, took on NSW, majority of whose members were international Australian players (yellow jersey)."

Toss: Warriors elect to bat. Jacobs is clipped in his responses, much like his batting - no-nonsense. "Always good to get runs on the board. Will see how it goes. No changes to the team." Warriors haven't made a single change through the tournament.

Klinger says Tait is back for South Australia and will be going whang soon. That's the only change to their XI - Haberfield out, Tait in.

16.50 A warm welcome to the second semi-final of the Champions League. As Sid Talya, in his preview, calls it - the battle of the inspirational captains. Davy Jacobs of Warriors v Michael Klinger of South Australia - who will step up for the opportunity to face Chennai in the final? Toss coming up in 10 minutes.

An interesting pitch greets us from Centurion - one that Pommie Mbangwa on air defines as "not the most beautiful to look at". Aesthetics apart, it is a rough track, quite dry and looks like it will assist spin. Warriors have Johan Botha and Nicky Boje in their ranks, South Australia have the more low-profile duo of Cullen Bailey and Aaron O'Brien in their side. Will the spinners come to the party? Or will it be down to the seamers - plenty of those on both sides too. Will Jacobs and Klinger continue to pile on the runs at the top?

While we wait for the toss: Australia have started their tour of India on a confident note. Sid Monga's first-day bulletin speaks about the ease with which Simon Katich and Shane Watson raced to centuries against a friendly attack. More interested in the wacky world of Indian fans? Read on.

0.1

Tait to Jacobs, 1 run, slides the first one on to the pads and it is neatly clipped square. Warriors are away

0.2

Tait to Prince, OUT, 151.4kph! Too good for Prince, that explodes from back of a length as it angles across him at a furious pace and Prince could only meekly hang his bat outside off and guide it into the hands of first slip. The Redbacks have struck.

AG Prince c Harris b Tait 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

That was the second fastest ball of the tournament. Ingram walks out to face the music.

0.3

Tait to Ingram, no run, 146 kph, searing across him from a length and Ingram lets it go

0.4

Tait to Ingram, no run, 147.7 kph this time, and he throws it further up. Ingram is late on the move forward and hardly flows into the cover drive. No contact made

0.5

Tait to Ingram, 1 run, 149 kph, bangs it short and into the left-hander's body. Ingram fends it uneasily to square leg and gets away

0.6

Tait to Jacobs, no run, 149.2 kph, pitched up and beats the in-form Jacobs for pace. Hint of movement too, that straightened from outside off after coming in from the angle and Jacobs played a lovely off drive, but well inside the line and in no risk of making contact. Tait has something to tell him as well.

End of over 1 (2 runs) Warriors 2/1 (RR: 2.00)
DJ Jacobs    1* (2b)      SW Tait    1-0-2-1
CA Ingram    1* (3b)     

Spin from the other end. O'Brien, left arm over the wickets.

1.1

O'Brien to Ingram, 1 run, drifts with the turn into Ingram's pads and he sweeps it behind square for one

1.2

O'Brien to Jacobs, 1 run, length, turning away from outside off, Jacobs reaches across and sweeps to square leg for one more

1.3

O'Brien to Ingram, FOUR, good hit, Ingram is away. Chips out of the crease, gets to the pitch of the delivery - O'Brien is flighting them - and he lofts it nicely over the top.

1.4

O'Brien to Ingram, SIX, well done again, not so well done by the bowler. Tries to compensate and drops it short, Ingram is waiting in the crease and connects with a full blooded pull for six

1.5

O'Brien to Ingram, FOUR, well, the pressure exerted by Tait is being released in a hurry. drops short outside off this time, he waits for the turn and cuts it neatly past short third man for four more

1.6

O'Brien to Ingram, 2 runs, better length, Ingram drives this out into the covers and takes a couple

End of over 2 (18 runs) Warriors 20/1 (RR: 10.00)
CA Ingram    18* (8b 2x4 1x6)      AW O'Brien    1-0-18-0
DJ Jacobs    2* (3b)      SW Tait    1-0-2-1

2.1

Tait to Jacobs, no run, 150.5 kph, short ball hustles Jacobs into the pull and he is late on the shot

2.2

Tait to Jacobs, FOUR, it comes at 147 kph and Jacobs despatches it back at double the speed. Smack with the timing, that was on a length, he was waiting was Jacobs, got into position early and drives it straight past. Smoked.

2.3

Tait to Jacobs, SIX, this is a thrilling counter-attack! It came in at 151 kph, Jacobs hopped away to off stump, it is a tactic he has used to perfection in this tournament. Tait landed it on a length on middle and leg, and he picked it off the pads and smashed it over square leg

2.4

Tait to Jacobs, no run, slower ball, 128 kph and Jacobs did not see that coming. Early into the shot, it was short and he missed

2.5

Tait to Jacobs, FOUR, jumps across to off stump again, Tait sees him moving and whangs it in full on off stump. No problem for Jacobs, he jams the bat down in a clean arc and drills it past wide mid on for four more.

2.6

Tait to Jacobs, 2 runs, harries him with a pacy bouncer, Jacobs is up to the task - goes for the pull and gets a top edge, it is a skier but it lands safe behind the keeper

End of over 3 (16 runs) Warriors 36/1 (RR: 12.00)
DJ Jacobs    18* (9b 2x4 1x6)      SW Tait    2-0-18-1
CA Ingram    18* (8b 2x4 1x6)      AW O'Brien    1-0-18-0

The spin experiment is over. Putland comes on. Slip in place.

3.1

Putland to Ingram, no run, back of a length on off stump and Jacobs plays watchfully into the covers

3.2

Putland to Ingram, FOUR, drops it short this time and Ingram finds this pace a lot more gentle than the Tait barrage from the other end. Picks it early and cuts it with disdain, in front of square. See you later.

3.3

Putland to Ingram, 2 runs, fuller outside off, Ingram adjusts and opens the face to pick a couple behind square

3.4

Putland to Ingram, 1 run, slower ball, 108 kph, Ingram waits and waits. And waits some more. And then opens his face to run it to short third man for one

3.5

Putland to Jacobs, no run, slow off cutter, grips and bounces off the turf, but Jacobs adjusts and plays it out to the off side

3.6

Putland to Jacobs, no run, and again, 104 kph on that off cutter. Jacobs sees it early and plays defensively to the off side

End of over 4 (7 runs) Warriors 43/1 (RR: 10.75)
DJ Jacobs    18* (11b 2x4 1x6)      GD Putland    1-0-7-0
CA Ingram    25* (12b 3x4 1x6)      SW Tait    2-0-18-1

Tait is being held back. Christian comes on.

4.1

Christian to Ingram, 1 run, gentle pace, angles across from back of a length and Ingram drives it into the covers

4.2

Christian to Jacobs, no run, Jacobs is waiting for anything short of too full, this is neither - length ball on off stump and he lets it go with the forward defensive

4.3

Christian to Jacobs, no run, smart ball, 135 kph yorker wide outside off. Jacobs does not get room to play that whiplash through the off side

4.4

Christian to Jacobs, FOUR, well, he's made something out of nothing here. Backs away to the leg side, he is almost near the wide tram lines when the ball comes - a short slower ball that stands up nicely for the upper cut. Jacobs gets a thickish outside edge and it goes over the keeper for four more

4.5

Christian to Jacobs, 1 run, moves away again and this time Christian follows him with a full ball on leg stump. Manages to pick a single to midwicket

4.6

Christian to Ingram, 1 run, dropped. Ingram works it from outside off, uppishly, to the left of Putland at point who should have held on to it. He dived across, and got there but could not hold on

End of over 5 (7 runs) Warriors 50/1 (RR: 10.00)
CA Ingram    27* (14b 3x4 1x6)      DT Christian    1-0-7-0
DJ Jacobs    23* (15b 3x4 1x6)      GD Putland    1-0-7-0

5.1

Putland to Ingram, 5 runs, well, things are not going Redbacks' way. Back of a length outside off, firm check drive to mid off for one. Unnecessary shy at the stumps, misses and goes away for four overthrows

5.2

Putland to Jacobs, no run, another slower ball, quite short and Jacobs waits and times the cut, but can't beat the off side cordon

5.3

Putland to Jacobs, 1 run, this one is on his pads and Jacobs drills it out to deep midwicket for one.Times well, no placement.

5.4

Putland to Ingram, 1 run, on Ingram's pads this time and he works it behind square for a single

5.5

Putland to Jacobs, FOUR, well, the short slower ball is a risky option against this man. This is why. 107 kph, lands halfway and sits up nicely. Jacobs has already skipped across and is inside the line, easy pickings after that - connects well with the pull and it runs away behind square

5.6

Putland to Jacobs, 1 run, full on off stump, better option surely. Jacobs digs it out to wide mid off for one

End of over 6 (12 runs) Warriors 62/1 (RR: 10.33)
DJ Jacobs    29* (19b 4x4 1x6)      GD Putland    2-0-19-0
CA Ingram    33* (16b 3x4 1x6)      DT Christian    1-0-7-0

One over of brilliance from Tait and since then it has been all Warriors. Having a spinner for the second over spoiled it in my opinion.

6.1

Christian to Jacobs, FOUR, not good, full and on the toes, Jacobs greedily tucks in with a deft glance to the right of short fine leg

6.2

Christian to Jacobs, FOUR, it's getting worse for the Redbacks. Bangs it shorter, Jacobs decides to send it to the left of short fine leg this time with a well-controlled pull shot. These slower balls aren't working.

6.3

Christian to Jacobs, no run, better, pitches it up at proper pace - 132 kph - and Jacobs misses with the off drive. Through to the keeper

6.4

Christian to Jacobs, FOUR, money for nothing and boundaries for free. Another one sliding well down the leg side, all Jacobs had to do was flag it along on its way. He does it with another nice little glance

6.5

Christian to Jacobs, 1 run, gets it outside off this time, 136 kph and Jacobs is timing them ominously now. Out to deep extra cover for one

6.6

Christian to Ingram, 2 runs, well, good surprise bouncer, had Ingram in trouble, but no wicket all the same. 132 kph, bouncer angles across his body and Ingram is late on the pull. Top edge lands safely at midwicket.

End of over 7 (15 runs) Warriors 77/1 (RR: 11.00)
CA Ingram    35* (17b 3x4 1x6)      DT Christian    2-0-22-0
DJ Jacobs    42* (24b 7x4 1x6)      GD Putland    2-0-19-0

Nirav: "Can we expect Klinger and Jacobs to be part of next IPL?" Barack Obama would say: "Yes, we can!" Me too. Spin comes back on. Warriors are running away here and Redbacks need more imagination.

7.1

O'Brien to Jacobs, 1 run, speared in from wide of the crease and worked with the angle behind square

Over the wickets to the left hander.

7.2

O'Brien to Ingram, no run, outside off, cuts it away it is too full and he can't get it away

7.3

O'Brien to Ingram, no run

7.4

O'Brien to Ingram, no run, lets one go outside off, how rare is that!

7.5

O'Brien to Ingram, 1 run, looks to sweep from well outside off, and Ingram gets it away to short fine leg for one

7.6

O'Brien to Jacobs, no run, fuller on off stump, and Jacobs can't get it past point. This over is the lull after the storm.

End of over 8 (2 runs) Warriors 79/1 (RR: 9.87)
DJ Jacobs    43* (26b 7x4 1x6)      AW O'Brien    2-0-20-0
CA Ingram    36* (21b 3x4 1x6)      DT Christian    2-0-22-0

Spin from both ends. Cullen Bailey comes on.

8.1

Bailey to Ingram, 1 run, straighter one, Ingram chips out and gets some outside edge into the covers

8.2

Bailey to Jacobs, 1 run, Jacobs paddles one on middle and leg behind square for one more

8.3

Bailey to Ingram, 1 run, one of the longest hops a legspinner at this pace can afford. Ingram does not cash in. Pulled straight to long leg

8.4

Bailey to Jacobs, no run, nice stuff, looped up at 79 kph outside off, Jacobs looks to sweep against the spin from that line, and misses

8.5

Bailey to Jacobs, FOUR, well, this is even shorter than the bonus ball Ingram got and Jacobs is in no mood to let it go. Breaks away from outside off and turns a mile. It was a challenge for Jacobs to reach it, but he did and sent it square for four

8.6

Bailey to Jacobs, 1 run, and another one, Jacobs should be leaving these and claiming the wides. Instead he reaches out and plays the forehand cross court through extra cover

End of over 9 (8 runs) Warriors 87/1 (RR: 9.66)
DJ Jacobs    49* (30b 8x4 1x6)      CB Bailey    1-0-8-0
CA Ingram    38* (23b 3x4 1x6)      AW O'Brien    2-0-20-0

9.1

O'Brien to Jacobs, no run, what happened there? Grip, bounce, loop and turn, from a length on middle and off, completely squares up Jacobs. Did well not to nick it.

9.2

O'Brien to Jacobs, 1 run, fuller on middle and leg and he works it off the pads to wide mid on to bring up fifty. Well played!

9.3

O'Brien to Ingram, no run, tossed up on off and he goes for a sweep and misses.

9.4

O'Brien to Ingram, 1 run, Cooper pouts down a dolly! What's happening here? Tossed up outside off and Ingram looks to loft over long off. Can't quite launch it high enough, and it goes straight down Cooper's throat. And he puts it down.

9.5

O'Brien to Jacobs, no run, plays it out towards the covers, not for runs

9.6

O'Brien to Jacobs, no run, Jacobs pulls out the reverse sweep, connects well but straight to short third man

End of over 10 (2 runs) Warriors 89/1 (RR: 8.90)
DJ Jacobs    50* (34b 8x4 1x6)      AW O'Brien    3-0-22-0
CA Ingram    39* (25b 3x4 1x6)      CB Bailey    1-0-8-0

10.1

Bailey to Ingram, 1 run, sharp turn comes in menacingly, but Ingram plays it off the stumps behind point

10.2

Bailey to Jacobs, FOUR, pulls out the reverse sweep again, does not connect well, but the thinking was right - he was targetting the third man fence, with the fielder inside the circle. Top edges the shot over the fielder and it is four

10.3

Bailey to Jacobs, no run, fuller on off, another reverse sweep and he does not make contact this time

10.4

Bailey to Jacobs, FOUR, goes for the conventional sweep and connects with murderous intent. Slammed that across the turf for four, that was hit really hard.

10.5

Bailey to Jacobs, 1 run, again, looks leg side and gets a single out towards midwicket

10.6

Bailey to Ingram, 1 run, chips out and works it over the infield towards midwicket for one.

Christian to Boje, FOUR, inventive from Boje, goes outside off to sweep this delivery on middle to the right of short fine for four

19.4

Christian to Boje, no run, wide outside off, Boje misses out on this one, hopes for a wide call but isn't getting one

19.5

Christian to Boje, 1 run, swatted down to deep midwicket this time

Christian to Kreusch, SIX, Kreusch ends on a high! picks this one from outside off and sends it screaming over wide long-on for the third six of the over, that kept going ... and going

So Warriors have finished on a high here. Jacobs and Ingram had looked like taking the game away from South Australia, but they pulled things back in the middle overs, chiefly through Daniel Harris' spell. The two spinners didn't do badly either. But Boje has played a blinder here. He and Botha will be key for Warriors during the chase. There is some turn on offer on this track.

Meanwhile, Sriram Veera will have his buletin up in a moment here

Jacobs has done the job for his side. He has the golden bat with 252 runs. Can Michael Klinger do it for the Redbacks?
