BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc403218.00112130
2.5 to J Charles, Charles is gone. Starc has struck. Perhaps this attack is too good for him. Starc has been swinging the ball back in, but this is short of a length, and goes with the angle. All Charles manages is an edge through to Wade. 16/1
Shane Watson403508.75124200
Pat Cummins403629.0084110
7.2 to MN Samuels, Timbahhh. Slower ball at 116ks, and the middle stump lays flat. Samuels plays the odd ungainly slog this time, and is comprehensively deceived by the slower one. 57/2
15.5 to DJ Bravo, good field placement. It's Bailey himself at straight extra cover and Bravo has hit this length ball straight to him. Some relief for Australia, but West Indies keep coming at you with their big hitters: Pollard, Russell and Sammy to follow. 140/3
Xavier Doherty3048116.0050700
19.6 to KA Pollard, oh finally a mis-hit finds a fielder. Pollard is looking for a fourth straight six, but this time he slices it high, high, high, and Warner takes a safe catch at long-off. Warner will have to do much more with the bat if we are going to have a match tonight. 205/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Samuel Badree402726.75112100
0.6 to DA Warner, back and it skips past the cut stroke and narrowly avoids off stump, Ramdin had the bails off and they're going the check for the stumping, surely Warner didn't leave his ground here...oh it's not for the stumping it's bowled him! Who would have thought that, it nicked the off stump on the way through to the keeper and has bowled Warner. What a blow for West Indies, another great start from Badree. 2/1
4.3 to SR Watson, goes for the shame stroke, again it skips on but this is straight and out goes leg stump. Right call to keep Badree going because he's slid one past the big man. That is a massive, massive blow. It was dragged down but skidded on to Watson and he was too late with the stroke. 29/3
Marlon Samuels302618.6684010
3.1 to MEK Hussey, oh swept straight up in the air and taken by the bowler in typically nonplussed fashion. Kicks the ball away, is that how one celebrates getting rid of Hussey in a semi-final? It is if you're Marlon Samuels. It was just outside off and Hussey swung hard at it aiming over the leg side but got it off a huge top edge and it went nowhere. 22/2
Ravi Rampaul3.401634.36110010
6.1 to CL White, full and sliding now leg, Ramdin takes it and goes up for a huge appeal and up goes the finger! Rampaul strikes first ball with a strangle down the leg side, complete luck that is, White went to flick it to leg and must have got a thin touch on it, Ramdin was convinced and so was the umpire. 42/4
6.3 to DJ Hussey, short ball into the body, the batsman gets into a total tangle and chips a catch back to the bowler. A disgusting dismissal. Got into a complete mess trying to defend it back to the bowler or turn it to leg, in the end, stood squared up and turned the face, it looped off a leading edge providing a simple chance to Rampaul who ran forward three yards to take it. 42/5
16.4 to MA Starc, swing and miss, bowled him and it's all over. A length ball, clips the off bail, perfect delivery to end the game, aimed for the leg side and was a long way off. 131/10
Sunil Narine301725.66102000
7.2 to MS Wade, swept at and a top edge to short long leg. He had trouble against Narine in the Windies did Wade and he's lasted two balls here. Goes to sweep just outside leg stump and gets a top edge that flies straight to the fielder on the 45, simple catch. 43/6
15.1 to GB Hogg, goes down the wicket, misses with a cut, the keeper whips off the bails, did Hogg get back? No he did not, sharp work from the keeper, had the bails off in a flash and Hogg didn't get back in time. 121/9
Andre Russell1025025.0003200
Daren Sammy1011011.0010100
Kieron Pollard10626.0031000
13.2 to GJ Bailey, another step to leg and goes for the leg side fence taking on the deep fielder but this time picks him out. That's a very brave effort from Bailey but this time he doesn't quite time it and the man on the rope doesn't have to move to take the catch. 111/7
13.3 to PJ Cummins, first ball, steps away, goes to slap it miles but gets it straight up in the air and it's taken at extra cover. Can't blame Cummins for trying but didn't get this at all after giving himself room, straight up of a big top edge and extra cover took it simply on the edge of the circle. 111/8
