ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 6th match, Group B

England v Zimbabwe

England won by 50 runs

18.4

Chigumbura to Schofield, no run, hat-trick ball is negotiated with a nibble outside off stump

18.5

Chigumbura to Schofield, 1 run, nudged into the gap for Schofield's first international run in seven years

England 179/8   CP Schofield 1* (2b)

19.1

Brent to Schofield, 1 run, a clever, loopy, slower ball. Schofield defends resolutely with an open face, and steers down to third man

19.3

Brent to Schofield, FOUR, slower ball again, a wild slash from Broad gets a thin outside edge, and is helped over the boundary by a despairing dive from third man

19.4

Brent to Schofield, 1 run, OUT, a baseball carve into the leg side, an instant call for two and Dabengwa fields and throws expertly from long-on. It's gone to the third umpire ... Broad's long strides can't make up the ground, and that's another late wicket. England could be bowled out here

SCJ Broad run out 1 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

19.5

Brent to Schofield, no run, cracking delivery, a slower-ball yorker, and Schofield has to play that straight back down the pitch

19.6

Brent to Schofield, 2 runs, swung into the leg-side again - like Lance Klusener without the timing. Two more runs as the throw comes in and that's the end of that

England 188/9   CP Schofield 9* (7b 1x4)
