ICC World Cup, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

ICC World Cup - 25th match, Super Eights

West Indies v Australia

Australia won by 103 runs

4.1

Powell to Gilchrist, OUT, edged and gone! Powell bangs in a shorter one at a good pace, lands on about middle and leg and moves in a tad, Gilchrist hops up and defends, maybe he was trying to get bat out of the way, but there's the thinnest of edges through and Ramdin moves to his right and holds a good catch low down! Gilchrist starts to walk before Asad Rauf raises the finger and West Indies have drawn first blood

AC Gilchrist c †Ramdin b Powell 7 (21m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Australia 10/1   ML Hayden 0* (16b)   DBL Powell 2.1-2-0-1

14.4

Taylor to Ponting, OUT, and a piece of brilliance gets rid of a brillant batsman! A good length delivery outside off stump, Ponting lunges forward and drives into the covers and sets off, Sarwan collects the ball and has one stump to aim at, and doesnt miss! A superb throw that catches Ponting just short of his crease, even though he was going full stretch! Great work!

RT Ponting run out 35 (46m 36b 4x4 1x6) SR: 97.22

Australia 76/2   ML Hayden 25* (43b 3x4)   JE Taylor 5.4-0-32-0

30.5

Bravo to Clarke, OUT, and Bravo gets his man! Clarke plays half-cock forward to one that moves in appreciably from outside off stump, gets rapped on the leg, everyone appeals and after a good thought umpire Rauf raises the dreaded finger

MJ Clarke lbw b Bravo 41 (71m 47b 4x4 0x6) SR: 87.23

Australia 174/3   ML Hayden 78* (95b 7x4)   DJ Bravo 2.5-0-21-1

35.6

Samuels to Symonds, OUT, edged and gone! Samuels fires one wide of off stump, Symonds stands there and looks to bring the bat down late to cheekily run it fine, but ends up with a thin edge that Ramdin neatly snaps up!

A Symonds c †Ramdin b Samuels 13 (22m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

Australia 208/4   ML Hayden 98* (108b 8x4 1x6)   MN Samuels 4-0-28-1

40.5

Powell to Hussey, OUT, bowled 'em! Hussey reaches out to drive a very full delivery and ends up dragging it back onto off stump! A tame dismissal and Powell's gotten a second in his final over!

MEK Hussey b Powell 9 (20m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 234/5   ML Hayden 114* (119b 10x4 1x6)   DBL Powell 9.5-2-53-2

47.1

Bravo to Hayden, OUT, full in the zone, no room to work with, and Hayden scoops this in the air straight down the throat of Samuels at long-off, and an excellent innings comes to an end

ML Hayden c Samuels b Bravo 158 (216m 143b 14x4 4x6) SR: 110.48

Australia 297/6   SR Watson 17* (15b 1x6)   DJ Bravo 5.1-0-33-2
