ICC World Cup, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Cup - 11th match, Group C

Canada v England

England won by 51 runs

19.6

Samad to Vaughan, OUT, and there you go. Once again Vaughan falls when he's well placed. Cleverly bowled, holding it back a touch and he slaps it straight to backward point

MP Vaughan c Davison b Samad 45 (82m 64b 7x4 0x6) SR: 70.31

England 101/1   EC Joyce 40* (59b 4x4 1x6)   AM Samad 3-0-10-1

33.2

Dhaniram to Bell, OUT, that dismissal was softer than a pack of extra-soft marshmallows: Bell going for the slog sweep and sending it high and straight down short third man's throat - not literally, as that would have been painful, but you get the idea

IR Bell c Codrington b Dhaniram 28 (42m 44b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

England 153/2   EC Joyce 64* (95b 4x4 1x6)   S Dhaniram 6.2-0-23-1

35.1

Dhaniram to Joyce, OUT, oh dear, another tame dismissal and a horrible shot - aiming to reverse sweep that, misses the ball completely the ball clips off stump

EC Joyce b Dhaniram 66 (133m 103b 4x4 1x6) SR: 64.07

England 160/3   KP Pietersen 5* (3b 1x4)   S Dhaniram 7.1-0-29-2

35.6

Dhaniram to Pietersen, OUT, soft, softer, softest. Pietersen pops the ball back to the bowler, simple as that. A big blow for England, of course, not to mention the crowd.

KP Pietersen c & b Dhaniram 5 (8m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

England 161/4   PD Collingwood 1* (4b)   S Dhaniram 8-0-30-3

46.5

Codrington to Bopara, OUT, horrible shot, attempted reverse sweep, missed it totally and there goes his off stump - Bopara showing all of the sticks, there

RS Bopara b Codrington 29 (39m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 96.66

England 242/5   PD Collingwood 50* (41b 3x4 1x6)   GR Codrington 8.5-0-57-1

47.4

Cummins to Dalrymple, OUT, oh dear - fishing at a very wide one with a premeditated sweep looking to paddle it fine, but made a late decision to try to dink it late to third man and sent it straight to the keeper instead

JWM Dalrymple c †Bagai b Cummins 2 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 245/6   PD Collingwood 51* (42b 3x4 1x6)   AC Cummins 5.4-0-37-1
