ICC World Twenty20 - 2nd semi final
India won by 15 runs
Played at Kingsmead, Durban (neutral venue)
22 September 2007 - night match (20-over match)

Sreesanth to Gilchrist, OUT, bowled em! Sreesanth pitches full on the stumps, Gilchrist doesnt move his feet an inch, instead choosing to fatefully play from deep in the crease, misses out on the attempted on-drive, and loses his middle stump! Big wicket for India!

AC Gilchrist b Sreesanth 22 (21m 13b 2x4 2x6) SR: 169.23

Australia 36/1   ML Hayden 10* (18b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 2.1-1-5-1

Pathan to Hodge, OUT, gone! Wasnt a decent ball, pitching well outside leg stump on a short length, but all Hodge can do is swivel and pull it straight to Joginder at short fine leg!

BJ Hodge c Joginder Sharma b Pathan 11 (15m 10b 0x4 1x6) SR: 110.00

Australia 68/2   ML Hayden 30* (29b 4x4 1x6)   IK Pathan 1.4-0-13-1

Sreesanth to Hayden, OUT, Biggie! Sreesanth comes round the stumps and powers the yorker in. It's quick, it's on target, it's just a bit too good for Hayden's ambitious shot. The ball sneaks under bat and uproots the off stump. This is a huge, huge wicket from Sreesanth in his comeback over

ML Hayden b Sreesanth 62 (61m 47b 4x4 4x6) SR: 131.91

Australia 134/3   A Symonds 33* (19b 2x4 2x6)   S Sreesanth 3.4-1-11-2

Pathan to Symonds, OUT, Another strike! It's a big one for India as Symonds loses his off stump. Pathan is bang on target as Symonds backs away and tries to hit. The ball crashes into off stump and India are right back in this nail-biter of a game

A Symonds b Pathan 43 (37m 26b 3x4 2x6) SR: 165.38

Australia 156/4   MEK Hussey 11* (5b 1x6)   IK Pathan 3.4-0-41-2

Harbhajan Singh to Clarke, OUT, Yorker! Michael Clarke doesn't expect this from Harbhajan and has no answer as he walks down the crease and the ball just spears into the leg stump. Another really quality bit of bowling and this might just be the wicket that tilts the scales in India's favour

MJ Clarke b Harbhajan Singh 3 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 159/5   MEK Hussey 11* (5b 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 3.1-0-21-1

Joginder Sharma to Hussey, OUT, short of a good length and outside the off, big heave to the on side, that one goes high rather than far, Yuvraj Singh runs across to wide long-on and holds the catch. Now surely that is the end of that. Big, big wicket for Joginder in a big over

MEK Hussey c Yuvraj Singh b Joginder Sharma 13 (28m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 108.33

Australia 167/6   BJ Haddin 5* (8b)   Joginder Sharma 2.3-0-31-1

Joginder Sharma to Lee, OUT, full, straight yorker and Lee has no chance as he has a big heave. The leg stump is uprooted and the Indians erupt in celebration. Another wicket as India really drive this win home

B Lee b Joginder Sharma 2 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 169/7   BJ Haddin 5* (8b)   Joginder Sharma 2.5-0-33-2
