ICC World Twenty20 - 4th match, Group B

Australia v Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe won by 5 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)

12.1

Taibu to Symonds, 1 bye, a big slash to a wideish one - and he missed it

12.2

Taibu to Hodge, FOUR, very wide and Hodge was kind, I think, in reaching out for that and cut through cover

12.3

Taibu to Hodge, 1 run, driven forward for a quick single

12.4

Taibu to Symonds, 2 runs, straighter, but still with enough width to run down to third man - and then they take an extra run through some sloppy fielding

12.5

Taibu to Symonds, 1 run, wide and cut lateish behind point

12.6

Taibu to Hodge, no run, up there, defended on the back foot towards the bowler

Australia 78/4   T Taibu 1-0-8-0

17.1

Taibu to Lee, 1 run, huge swing and a miss to third man

17.2

Taibu to Hodge, 1 run, cut strongly out to the point boundary this time

17.3

Taibu to Lee, no run, full toss, waist height, poked back down off the back foot

17.4

Taibu to Lee, FOUR, full and swung away through the off-side, through the covers, and on its way

17.5

Taibu to Lee, SIX, over extra cover for a loopy six

17.6

Taibu to Lee, 1 run, pushed forward for a quick strike-stealing single

Australia 119/6   T Taibu 2-0-21-0
