Australia tour of West Indies, 2008 / Wicket commentary

Australia in West Indies ODI Series - 2nd ODI

West Indies v Australia

Australia won by 63 runs (D/L method)

0.6

Taylor to Watson, OUT, and now there's a wicket, a big one too, to cap what could be the longest first over ever! Taylor pitches very full and angles the ball in through the air, Watson expects it to move away and doesn't get his front foot out too much but the ball dips and clips him flush on the foot

SR Watson lbw b Taylor 0 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 3/1   SE Marsh 3* (3b)   JE Taylor 1-0-3-1

5.1

Powell to Marsh, OUT, edged and taken! Powell bowls it short of a length and Marsh, trying to steer it down to third man, doesn't get over the bounce and tickles it to Browne, silly shot that

SE Marsh c †Browne b Powell 12 (23m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 19/2   RT Ponting 7* (6b 1x4)   DBL Powell 2.1-0-3-1

8.6

Taylor to Ponting, OUT, caught! Slower ball works as Ponting shuffles across and clips this in the air, indifferently, lazily, straight to Gayle at short midwicket, who falls to his right and clutches on

RT Ponting c Gayle b Taylor 13 (37m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

Australia 35/3   MJ Clarke 10* (12b 2x4)   JE Taylor 5-1-18-2

37.6

Benn to Clarke, OUT, and Benn breaks through! He's coming around the wicket, sends in a quicker ball that pitches on off, Clarke is walking across and trying to clip through leg, he's struck in line and that was not spinning, probably taking leg stump

MJ Clarke lbw b Benn 56 (142m 98b 6x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Australia 135/4   MEK Hussey 46* (88b 1x4 1x6)   SJ Benn 6-0-34-1

44.6

Bravo to Hussey, OUT, full on leg stump and a tiring Hussey can only chip that in the air down to long-on, where Marshall settles under an easy catch, ending a patient and crucial 62

MEK Hussey c Marshall b Bravo 62 (151m 105b 2x4 1x6) SR: 59.04

Australia 175/5   CL White 22* (25b 2x4)   DJ Bravo 8-2-23-1
