ICC World Twenty20 - 8th match, Group D

West Indies v England

West Indies won by 8 wickets (with 1 ball remaining) (D/L method)

0.1

Benn to Lumb, no run, and he finds a great line straight away, as Lumb nudges to midwicket

0.2

Benn to Lumb, no run, fuller this time, and Lumb tries to bunt it back past Benn, who lopes across to cut it off

0.3

Benn to Lumb, 2 runs, first international runs for Lumb, as he eases Benn through the covers for a couple

0.4

Benn to Lumb, 2 runs, not much wrong from Benn, but Lumb shuffles across to change the line and picks up a few more to midwicket

0.5

Benn to Lumb, no run, just held back a touch by Benn, and Lumb punches it watchfully back to the bowler

0.6

Benn to Lumb, 1 run, full, straight, and driven much more firmly this time. Benn sticks out a big boot but can't stop the ball, and mid off cleans up

England 5/0   MJ Lumb 5* (6b)

1.1

Rampaul to Lumb, 1 wide, Rampaul errs slightly in line, as the ball shoots past the leg stump from over the wicket

1.1

Rampaul to Lumb, FOUR, shot! Too short from Rampaul, Lumb had moved forward but rocked back easily to smite the ball through midwicket. Pulled on length

1.2

Rampaul to Lumb, 1 wide, loose start here, as Rampaul fires one very wide of off stump this time

1.2

Rampaul to Lumb, FOUR, crashed away! The ball was similarly short and wide to the last one, and Lumb, trusting the pace and bounce of the surface, slapped the ball very hard between point and cover

1.3

Rampaul to Lumb, (no ball) 2 runs, sloppy stuff from Rampaul, who oversteps by a good three inches. There's a misfield in the covers too.

1.3

Rampaul to Lumb, no run, Lumb swishes wildly at a slightly short ball, but can't connect. He missed out there, that was there to be hit

1.4

Rampaul to Lumb, no run, much better length and line, chopped down to point

1.5

Rampaul to Lumb, 2 runs, all sort from Rampaul, this one is short again and Lumb pulls powerfully to midwicket but there's a fielder there to cut it off

1.6

Rampaul to Lumb, 1 run, that wasn't all that short, but Lumb stayed back and muscled the ball to midwicket to keep the strike

England 21/0   MJ Lumb 18* (13b 2x4)

2.1

Benn to Lumb, FOUR, uppish! The ball was floated on leg stump and Lumb chipped it just wide of Gayle at midwicket, the ball rolls away to the boundary

2.2

Benn to Lumb, FOUR, and again! This was hit much more cleanly though, Lumb picking the vacant midwicket area and hitting the ball high over Gayle's head this time

2.3

Benn to Lumb, 1 run, pushed down to long on, and finally Kieswetter gets strike

England 30/0   MJ Lumb 27* (16b 4x4)

3.1

Gayle to Lumb, 1 run, short and Lumb pulls powerfully and in the air, but the ball bounces short of the man in the deep

3.4

Gayle to Lumb, OUT, gone this time! Gayle makes amends for the shocker with a floater on leg stump. Lumb went for the swipe over wide midwicket but was beaten in the flight, practically yorking himself, and his stumps are splayed! West Indies really needed that wicket, they had been looking very flat

MJ Lumb b Gayle 28 (18b 4x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

England 36/1   MJ Lumb 28 (18b 4x4)
