ICC World Twenty20 - 9th match, Group B

Australia v England

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 31 balls remaining)

0.1

Lee to Maddy, 1 run, forward defensive to a slow loosener, drops into the on side, no more than a few yards, and a scurried single to loud cheers

0.6

Lee to Maddy, 2 runs, short, cut over backward point, third man round quickly to field

England 4/0   DL Maddy 3* (2b)

1.6

Bracken to Maddy, 1 run, bat and pad together defensively, and again they settle for a well-run single into the off side

England 12/0   DL Maddy 4* (3b)

2.1

Lee to Maddy, no run, wide, Maddy looks to cut but it's too close to him and he ends up much too cramped

2.2

Lee to Maddy, no run, same again, and this one cuts back as well so he gets even more cramped and once more misses

2.3

Lee to Maddy, FOUR, bouncer at 89mph, fast and nasty, Maddy onto it quickly and he hooks for a one-bounce four, quite safe and he picked that up in a trice

2.4

Lee to Maddy, no run, as limp as the last shot was aggressive ... semi-nothing prod outside the off stump which he misses

2.5

Lee to Maddy, 1 run, back and pushed towards extra cover, real tip and run, and he did well to take all the pace of that

England 17/0   DL Maddy 9* (8b 1x4)

3.1

Clark to Maddy, 1 run, on leg stump, eased round the corner

3.5

Clark to Maddy, 1 run, back of a length, placed through where the slips would have been and Gilchrist zooms off to field

England 24/0   DL Maddy 11* (10b 1x4)

4.3

Johnson to Maddy, no run, Maddy's turn to have a mow ... net result, another miss

4.4

Johnson to Maddy, 1 run, Maddy back, lets the ball hit the bat and a single as it plops into the on side

4.6

Johnson to Maddy, no run, pushed between cover and extra cover, well placed but not well enough

England 29/1   DL Maddy 12* (13b 1x4)

5.2

Clark to Maddy, no run, a swing, a miss, and he loses his off stump ... but it matters only in that England didn't get a run off it

5.3

Clark to Maddy, no run, short, Maddy leans back and tries to work it over where slip would be but misses

5.4

Clark to Maddy, no run, again no run ... this is good bowling

5.5

Clark to Maddy, FOUR, full toss and Maddy takes advantage, smacking it a yard or two to the right of wide mid-on who has no chance

5.6

Clark to Maddy, no run, tries to nurdle to third man but he misses

England 35/1   DL Maddy 16* (18b 2x4)

7.2

Clark to Maddy, FOUR, Maddy helps a leg-side half-volley on its way for a one bounce four behind square

7.3

Clark to Maddy, OUT, driven high and straight but Maddy deceived by the slower ball ... no power in the shot and deepish mid-off takes a routine catch

DL Maddy c Hussey b Clark 20 (33m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 48/3   DL Maddy 20 (20b 3x4)
