ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 6th match, Group B

England v Zimbabwe

England won by 50 runs

0.1

Chigumbura to Maddy, 1 run, a loose drive to one outside off stump zips down to third man

0.3

Chigumbura to Maddy, no run, full, straight and driven to extra cover who is three or four yards closer than usual

0.4

Chigumbura to Maddy, 1 run, dropped towards backward point with soft hands, a mix-up with the calling but they get away with it as the throw goes to the wrong end

England 3/0   DL Maddy 2* (3b)

1.1

Brent to Maddy, 3 runs, too short, too wide, Maddy cuts over the infield, four on any other day but the outfield remains a complete pudding and the ball pulls up short

1.5

Brent to Maddy, FOUR, firm drive past a diving cover, it beats the man and that's got the power to beat the slow outfield

1.6

Brent to Maddy, 1 run, pulled to square leg where the fielder makes a good, diving semi-stop

England 16/0   DL Maddy 10* (6b 1x4)

2.1

Chigumbura to Maddy, FOUR, one step... and one bounce over long-on with a huge drive, crouching down and launching off the back foot

2.2

Chigumbura to Maddy, no run, minimal footwork, stepping late and swishing as the ball had already gone through just outside off

2.3

Chigumbura to Maddy, OUT, goes to hit it over cover, but mis-times and doesn't get the distance nor height - Matsikenyeri does, though, leaping high to take it well

DL Maddy c Matsikenyeri b Chigumbura 14 (8m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

England 20/1   DL Maddy 14 (9b 2x4)
