ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 4th match, Group B

Australia v Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe won by 5 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)

8.1

Utseya to Hussey, FOUR, lovely drive, and a confident strike as Hussey makes room and places his lofted drive superbly

8.2

Utseya to Hussey, no run, a squeaked appeal as Hussey cramps himself for room

8.3

Utseya to Hussey, 1 run, flicked out to the midwicket sweeper

8.4

Utseya to Symonds, 1 run, a low full-toss, but Symonds doesn't capitalise, driving firmly but carefully down to long-on

8.5

Utseya to Hussey, 2 runs, nudged out to midwicket for another single

8.6

Utseya to Hussey, 3 runs, nearly a terrible mix-up as Symonds hurtles back for a chancy third bye. Hussey attempted a reverse-sweep, nutmegged the keeper, but picked up some vital runs nonetheless

Australia 48/3   P Utseya 1-0-11-0

10.1

Utseya to Symonds, no run, driven back to the bowler who tidies up

10.2

Utseya to Symonds, FOUR, down the track to straight drive back over his head

10.3

Utseya to Symonds, 2 runs, waited, waited and adjusted at the last minute with a poke to midwicket

10.4

Utseya to Symonds, 1 run, uncontrolled dink to midwicket, one hand flying up off the bat - but an easy enough single

10.5

Utseya to Hodge, no run, driven towards mid-on, the bowler pouncing on to it

10.6

Utseya to Hodge, 2 runs, a fluff at third man, but the outfield's slow and the fielder makes quick amends

Australia 60/4   P Utseya 2-0-20-0

14.1

Utseya to Haddin, no run, immediately on the money, poked down defensively

14.2

Utseya to Haddin, no run, same ball, same result

14.3

Utseya to Haddin, 1 run, worked out to cover for a quick single

14.4

Utseya to Hodge, 1 run, booming lob of a full toss, horrible, but at that deceptively difficult knee height - it can only be driven back out to long-on

14.5

Utseya to Haddin, no run, worked to short midwicket

14.6

Utseya to Haddin, 1 run, great over finishes with an easy drive to long-on

Australia 90/5   P Utseya 3-0-23-0

16.1

Utseya to Hodge, 1 run, veering down leg, and driven back out to long-on

16.2

Utseya to Haddin, OUT, pulls that from outside off, up in the air swirling away to the right of Chigumbura who runs round - and he has to be quick - to meet the ball out towards long-on

BJ Haddin c Chigumbura b Utseya 6 (7m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

16.3

Utseya to Hodge, 2 runs, poked to midwicket for a quick two

16.4

Utseya to Hodge, 1 run, worked out to midwicket again

16.5

Utseya to Lee, 1 run, pitches outside off, waited, and driven off the back foot into the covers

16.6

Utseya to Hodge, no run, outside off again, nipping in a fraction, driven back out through the covers

Australia 106/6   P Utseya 4-0-28-1
