ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 22nd match, Group F

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 10 wickets (with 58 balls remaining)

16.4

Watson to Malinga, no run, bouncer from Watson, nearly falling over in the follow-through such was his effort

16.5

Watson to Malinga, 1 leg bye, pitches on middle and angles towards leg, worked off the legs behind square

Sri Lanka 85/8   SL Malinga 0* (2b)

17.2

Lee to Malinga, 1 run, full delivery - Lee's done well with such deliveries this tournament - and it's dug out here

17.4

Lee to Malinga, 1 run, dribbled out to mid-on for a quick single

17.6

Lee to Malinga, 1 run, good sportsmanship from Symonds, running in at mid-on - he nearly got there to take the catch with the dive forward, but tells the umpire immediately that he did take it cleanly

Sri Lanka 92/8   SL Malinga 3* (5b)

18.1

Watson to Malinga, no run, a very tailender-like swish - no footwork, prodding away from the body at a rising delivery outside off

18.2

Watson to Malinga, SIX, but this is much better - Malinga lifting a hook from outside off in front of midwicket

18.3

Symonds to Malinga, 1 run, driven on the up between mid-off and cover

18.6

Symonds to Malinga, 1 run, comes forward and turns off his legs to bring up three figures

Sri Lanka 100/9   SL Malinga 11* (9b 1x6)

19.1

Bracken to Malinga, 1 run, nothing to write home about, but as it must be written about, a full toss outside off greeted by an almighty - but completely mistimed - heave to mid-off which hardly makes it even there

Sri Lanka 101/9   SL Malinga 12* (10b 1x6)
