ICC World Twenty20 2010
England Win By Six Wickets A polished display sees England start their Super Eights campaign with victory over Pakistan. Michael Yardy dragged England back into the game after a sloppy start. His display triggered a batting collapse and Pakistan were restricted to just 147. A few dropped catches from Saeed Ajmal helped England to get off to a brilliant start. Pakistan were never in it after that and England cruised home with KP scoring an unbeaten half-century. Thanks for joining us, but don't go too far as the next game starts in 45 minutes. Do join us then.
Over 20 Aamer 0-lb1-1 148-4 - England need just two runs from the final over which will be sent down by Saeed Ajmal. Afridi decides to push mid-on and mid-off out. Strange decision that. Wright sweeps and misses the ball. They take a leg bye to level scores. KP cracks the ball through cover for the winning run. That's that.
Over 19 Aamer 1-1-4-0-0-0 146-4 - England need eight runs from the last two overs. Should be easy. Missed chance! Pietersen smashes it straight to backward point and the man throws it to the wicketkeeper to run Luke Wright out, but Akmal can't gather the ball. Pietersen edges England closer with four wide of the man at mid-off. The fielder put the dive in, but it was too fast for him. Aamer surprises all by bowling a shorter one. Another shorter one and KP can't get it away. It will go into the final over.
Over 18 Ajmal 0-0-4-0-0-W 140-4 - Ajmal is back for his third over with England needing just 12 more runs to start their Super Eights campaign with a win. After a couple of dot balls, Morgan sweeps powerfully and gets four to deep midwicket. WICKET! Ajmal gets the last laugh. Morgan looks to pull, but fails to make contact and the ball crashes into his stumps.
Over 17 Asif 1-2-4-0-4-0 136-3 England's man of the moment Eoin Morgan is the new batsman. He's away with an easy to long-off. KP pushes the ball to deep square leg and sprints back for a second. That was excellent running. Pietersen looks like he wants to finish this very soon as he flicks the ball through square leg for a boundary. Four more to KP, this time it's timed through midwicket.
Over 16 Afridi 6-0-0-0-1-W 125-3 - Captain Afridi comes back into the attack with England needing 30 runs from 30 balls. Make that 24 from 29 balls as Pietersen launches it straight over the long-off fence. The six brings up his half century. That's 53 from 37b, 4x4, 2x6. KP cuts for one. WICKET! Collingwood tries to get in on the act, but he ends up holing out to Umar Akmal at long-off. Good catch.
Over 15 Aamer 4-1-1-0-0-1 118-2 - Aamer comes back and KP cracks the first ball wide of backward point for four. After a single, Colly decides to hit out, but he doesn't make proper contact and it just clears the man at cover. Ooh, a couple of dot balls from Aamer. The joy is short lived though as KP gets one down the ground to keep the strike.
Over 14 Ajmal 1-6-0-0-0-1 111-2 - Saeed Ajmal comes back into the attack. He picked up the first wicket and gave away just two runs. Colly takes a single down the ground. Dropped! Another chance goes begging for Pakistan. KP launches it down the ground, but it's slightly mistimed and goes high in the air. The man at long-off mistimes his jump and ends up palming it over the fence for six. It wasn't an easy chance, but you have to take those if you want to win games.
Over 13 Asif 1-2-1-2-1-1 103-2 - Mohammad Asif is back for over number three. The England batsmen climbed into him earlier. After KP pushes the ball down the ground for one, the paceman offers width and Colly cracks it wide of the diving point for a couple. The England century comes up with two down to deep extra cover. This is all too easy. It's one of those performances from Pakistan where they look like they are not even trying.
Over 12 Afridi 0-1-1-4-1-1 95-2 - It's all too easy for the England batsmen as they work it around the park for a couple of singles. Collingwood says "thank you very much" as Afridi bowls a short one. The England skipper works it wide of short fine for four. The man on the boundary wasn't interested in getting himself dirty.
Over 11 Razzaq 4-0-4-1-1-2 87-2 - Shot from KP! Fine leg is in the circle and he rolls his wrists to run it wide of the man for four. England are in cruise control here. Dropped! Another missed opportunity for Pakistan. Pietersen smacks it hard and straight to the bowler, but Razzaq can't hold on. It was a difficult chance, but you need to hold onto those if you want to win games. Razzaq follows it up with a short and wide ball and Pietersen goes through extra cover for four. After a couple of singles, Pietersen clips it through midwicket and comes back for an easy second.
Over 10 Afridi 1-1-0-1-1-1 75-2 - Afridi continues, but Colly and KP get a couple of comfortable singles. The Pakistan skipper hits back and beats KP who was looking guide it down to third man. Ouch! Pietersen plays it through point for one, but he turns on his ankle and needs treatment. Off comes the pads, the shoe and the sock as the physio has a look. Play finally resumes and a limping KP gets one down the ground.
Over 9 Razzaq W-1-1-2-1-0 70-2 - Abdul Razzaq is back for his second over. WICKET! Kieswetter's luck finally runs out. The opener launches it high in the air. Everyone's hoping that it's not Saeed Ajmal under the ball. Luckily for Pakistan it's Umar Akmal and he makes no mistake. Paul Collingwood strides out to the middle and he rotates the strike nicely with KP.
Over 8 Afridi 4-2-0-1-1-0 65-1 - It's time for Shahid "Boom Boom" Afridi to come into the attack. Can he drag his team back into the game with a couple of wickets? Pietersen welcomes the Pakistan captain to the bowling crease with four over extra cover. Two more to KP, this time through point. After a couple of singles, Afridi gets one to turn and beat KP. No harm done though.
Over 7 Hafeez 1-1-2-wd+1-6-0-0 57-1 - It will be spin from both ends as Mohammad Hafeez comes into the attack. After a couple of singles, Pietersen uses is feet to loft it over midwicket. He gets a couple of runs for his effort. A wide down the leg side brings up England's half-century. They need less than 100 to get their Super Eights campaign off to a winning start. Shot, son! Kieswetter is down the track and goes over the deep midwicket fence for six. The ball went into the roof of the Sir Garfield Sobers stand and left a hole in it. That's how you leave your mark or a ground!
Over 6 Ajmal 1-0-1-W-0-1lb 45-1 - Saeed Ajmal gets an opportunity to make amends as he comes into the bowling attack. Lumb pulls through midwicket for a single. Kieswetter works behind square for one. WICKET! Ajmal finally has something to smile about. Lumb charges down the track, but he misses the faster ball from the spinner and Kamran Akmal whips the bails off behind him. Here's Kevin Pietersen. KP works it to the on-side for a leg-bye.
Over 5 Aamer 4-1-0-0-0-0 42-0 - England are off to a flying start here and Pakistan need to pull something special out here to get back in the game. Bowling down the leg side with fine leg inside the circle is not going to help. Lumb says "thank you very much" as he clips it down to the fine leg boundary. Not again! Well, the ball is really following Ajmal around. Another chipped shot to mid-off and yes, you guessed it, Ajmal gets there, but spills it. I'm sure he wants the ground to open up and swallow him in right now. Bowler and captain are not impressed.
Over 4 Asif 6-0-4-1-4-4 37-0 - Finally we see a confident looking shot from one of the England openers. Lumb has his dancing shoes on and creams it over deep backward square leg for the first six of the innings. That really was a good shot. That's how you do it Kieswetter! Add four more to the total as Lumb again uses his feet, but this time he goes over cover. Kieswetter finally makes proper contact as he gives himself room to the leg side to smash it through the covers. Next he gets a top edge over the keeper for four more. An expensive over which yields 19 runs for England.
Over 3 Aamer 0-wd-4-2-0-0 18-0 - Mohammad Aamer comes into the attack. After a wide down the leg side, Saeed Ajmal is back in action. Another chip shot from Kieswetter, but this time he just gets finger tips to it. He did his best there, but it just went over him and England get four for it. "It's amazing how the ball follows you when you just dropped a catch", Nasser Hussain tells. us. Another risky shot from Kieswetter. This time it goes high in the air, but there's no one close to it and he gets a couple to midwicket. Kieswetter is not looking very good at the moment.
Come On England "A big shout out to the team at Marketone..... all backing England today then the Windies tomorrow!!" - this from an enthusiastic Marc Egan.
Over 2 Asif 2-1-1-1-0-1 10-0 - Mohammad Asif shares the new ball. Lumb helps himself to a couple of runs through midwicket. After that it's nice rotation of the strike from the left-hand-right-hand combination. Kieswetter is down the track once for a massive swing and miss. Tidy start from Asif as he didn't bowl any four balls.
Over 1 Razzaq 4-1-0-0-0-0 5-0 - Poor start from Razzaq as he is on Lumb's pads and the left-hander whips it down to the backward square leg boundary for four off the first ball. Another poor ball, but this time it's just one through midwicket. Better stuff outside off to the right-hander. Oh dear! More shocking stuff, this time from Ajmal at mid-on. Kieswetter plays it straight to him and Ajmal looks like he has it under control, but then suddenly he starts juggling and it pops out of his hands. It looked like he was starting to celebrate too early. Shades of Herschelle Gibbs there.
Here We Go Again Openers Michael Lumb and Craig Kieswetter march out to the middle. Abdul Razzaq will send down the first over.
Good Total? It's difficult to judge. Pakistan will be delighted that they at least have something to defend after that terrible batting collapse, but England will feel pretty confident with their strong batting line-up. It should be a very good chase.
Asif Admirer, Bopara Backing "My main man Mo' Asif is going to destroy England now. Kieswetter and Lumb won't know what hit 'em. I hope Pietersen lands a duck and then he can just head home to be with his wife. I don't care much for English selection, but I can't help but think that Ravi Bopara would've been a better bet ahead of Wright. This track needs nudging and nurdling more than swinging from the hips, says Matthew Morrison. Fair play, Matt. Bopara showed some decent form in the Indian Premier League and England should've cashed in on that momentum by keeping him in their starting XI throughout this tourney.
Pakistan Finish On 147 For Nine Built on the back of Butt and Umar's weigh-ins before a bit of tail-end heroics from Ajmal, this is a formidable total. Indeed, Pakistan would've fancied 20 runs more but, given the testing nature of the track, they'll be confident of defending it. England need at least one man to come to the party with a 50-plus knock, and hopefully it won't be Morgan again. Perhaps it's time Collingwood lead from the front. Look forward to Asif's first foray of the tourney. Stick around for the chase, it should be a cracker. Meanwhile, let's hear your thoughts on the game thus far. Mail us at email@example.com.
Over 20 Bresnan W-1wd-0-4-2-1wd-6-1 147-9 - Aamer's quest to be the senior hitter is cut short as he holes out on the pull. Swann and Yardy - who could do with a lesson in Communication 101 - almost collide at backward point, but in the end Yardy takes the simple catch. Asif is in now, almost running himself out at the non-striker's end but the bowler's tenpin bowling skills are not up to scratch. Ajmal then succeeds where Aamer failed, fetching a fat edge over the 'keeper's head for four lucky runs. The innings continues to drag on as Bresnan coughs up the worst wide of the day, with Kieswetter doing very well to stop additional extras on the dive. As if that's not bad enough for England, Ajmal again rides his luck over the wicketkeeper's head and this time it's six. 15 runs off the over - the biggest of the innings.
Over 19 Sidebottom 0-0-0-1-1wd-1wd-6-W 132-8 - Aamer is a bit too intent on dabbing a single to third man now, missing three deliveries on the trot. Sidebottom is wise to the tail-ender's tricks, pegging his length back accordingly. It appears England are right on the money in picking the southpaw seamer ahead of Anderson. Wicket! He justifiies his selection that much more after a couple of silly wides and a six clobbered over long-on courtesy Razzaq, who ultimately perishes to Sidebottom's last laugh on the long-off fence. Ajmal in now.
Over 18 Broad 0-W-1-0-1-1 123-7 - Wicket! Not entirely sure why Alam thinks he cant cut a delivery that is pitched on middle stump, but he tries as much twice on the trot, fetching a faint edge to the second. Kieswetter takes the dolly and coach Waqar's body language hardly relays confidence from the dugout. Aamer in now, showing Alam that a dab down to third man was all that was needed. Returned to the strike by Aamer's obligation on the single, Razzaq does not cash in, instead picking out the off-side cover fielders to errant perfection.
Over 17 Sidebottom 1wd-1-4-0-W-1-1 120-6 - The man many think shouldn't be in the side - Anderson should - returns to the attack with a silly leg-side wide and then a similarly errant line to be clubbed away for a single by Razzaq. Umar welcomes a return to the strike and offers his own version of the DillScoop-cum-McScoop. Let's call this one the UmarPaddle as four balloons over short fine-leg. Wicket! That turns out to be the last scoring shot of his stay at the crease, as one fat swipe over the on-side too many plugs into the deep, where Pietersen takes a good - not great - catch on the second attempt. Diving and rolling all over the place, 'FIGJAM' seems pretty pleased with himself. It could have been a whole other story had he not clung onto the second grab. Alam in now.
Over 16 Swann 1-0-0-1-6-2 112-5 - So very typical of Umar, who decides the best form of defence is attack, dancing down the track to swat six flat'n'hard over the on-side. Swann won't really mind that; as long as Umar is advancing the bowler is in with a stumping chance or potential catch on the boundary, provided Kieswetter and company oblige. Nelson up.
Over 15 Yardy 1-1-1-0-0-W 102-5 - I enjoy the occasional action cricket game and am always being reprimanded by my captain for backing away to the leg-side too much. Afridi should do the same to Misbah, who is out now anyway as his reverse-sweep goes awfully wrong. He missed the straight one by a Country Mile as the ball sniped through to the stumps. Yardy's day with the ball is done - two for 19 in four top overs. Razzaq in now.
Over 14 Broad 1-2nb-6-0-0-1-1 99-4 - Young Stu returns to the attack to gift Pakistan with a no-ball and subsequent free-hit. Misbah welcomes the freebie with open arms, anticipating the off-side line and full length, darting across and back in his crease accordingly and savaging a flat six over long-on. Pakistan fans have gone all quiet. Come on, up and at 'em. Mail us your thoughs on Misbah's place in the starting XI: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over 13 Yardy 0-0-1-0-1-0 88-4 - No surprise really, as the slow bowlers continue to have the biggest say in the Caribbean. Yes this track is supposedly fast-bowler friendly, but Yardy and Swann are holding their collective own.
Over 12 Swann 1-2-2-1-1-1 86-4 - Misbah nor Umar won't dare chance their arm over the top or on the scampered single. They hardly want a repeat of the previous over...
Wicketkeeping Woe "If Prior had missed a chance like that, he would have been crucified," says Terence Fane-Saunders. Right on the money you are, Terence. Kieswetter, being the new boy and all, will enjoy at least 10 reprieves before England add him to their massive list of discarded wicketkeepers.
Over 11 Yardy 0-1-W-W-1-0 78-4 - Matthew Prior, probably watching back home, enjoys a rye smile as Kieswetter misses a stumping chance. Umar fell out of his crease entirley and the wicketkeeper had all the time in the world to gather the ball and topple the bails. He doesn't and the right-hander breathes a sigh of relief. Wicket! With Umar enjoying his lifeline from the non-striker's end, Hafeez ends his stay at the crease by holing out to short third man. He wanted to crank that over cover but managed only a thick edge in not getting to the pitch of the ball. Wicket! In comes 'Boom Boom' Afridi, who promptly runs himself out for a first-ball quacker. Blocking to cover and calling for the quick single, he hesitates mid-pitch and turns around en route to the striker's crease. He doesn't make his ground in time as Wright swoops in for the return to Kieswetter, who does the rest to send the danger man packing. Misbah in now, with Pakistan in a sudden spot of bother.
Over 10 Swann 1-W-0-0-4-1 76-2 - For once not striking in his first over of the day, Swann makes sure he gets it right the second time around. Wicket! It takes Butt's inability to clear the cover fielder to give the spinner his scalp, as Collingwood hangs onto a screamer. So ends a threatening 40-run stand and in comes Umar, who has to tend to a short midwicket fielder so he instead powers four manipulated through the off-side on the cut. Pakistan going at 7.6 to the over at the halfway mark of their knock.
Over 9 Collingwood 1-1-0-1-1-6 70-1 - Collingwood reckons two boundaries in one over from Yardy is two boundaries too many, so he takes matters - and the ball - into his own hands. His trundling off-cutters are pretty apt for the nature of this track, with Butt and Hafeez adjusting their sights accordingly as the England captain keeps the big shots at bay. That's all goes to pot though, as Collingwood plugs a long-hop and Butt hammers six over midwicket to close anotherwise steady over.
Over 8 Swann 0-1-1-0-1-1 60-1 - Swann is incensed as Hafeez tries to reverse- and then slog-sweep his first two deliveries of the day. Neither are effective though, as the animated spinner notices the batsman's advances and duly adjusts his length at the last moment.
Over 7 Yardy 1-1-1-4-4-1 56-1 - Spin for the first time today, as discard Tredwell's nemisis enters the attack with his left-arm turn. I use the term 'turn' loosely because dear Mike is more prone to quick darts than flight and loop. Hafeez is all too happy to face this guy, driving some poor line for four and then pulling some horrid length for another boundary.
Over 6 Bresnan 4-2-1-1-0-1wd-1nb-1 44-1 - The decision to afford Bresnan an extended spell proves the wrong one for Collingwood, who watches from his fielding position as Butt smears four down the ground and clears half as much over mid-on. Hafeez then enjoys some strike, bobbing and weaving out the way of some steep bounce. Umpire Bowden and Koertzen decide to get strict, calling a shoulder-high wide and then a head-high no-ball to peeve Bresnan and Collingwood. inconsistent umpiring, it must be said. So ends the Powerplay.
Over 5 Broad 1-0-1b-1-W-2 33-1 - While Butt rides his luck for a chance down the leg-side, as Kieswetter drops a very tough chance, Kamran can't do the same. Wicket! Broad digs in his second bouncer of the over, with the right-hander going on the pull, failing to find the middle of the bat and watching on as wicketkeeper Kieswetter pouches a dolly. Up goes the finger and Akmal isn't amused - he thought it should be a no-ball as Broad had already used his one bouncer allowed per over. The decision stands and Kamran mopes off. Hafeez in now.
Telling It Like It Is "England don't deserve to win after dropping Anderson. He is by far the better bowler," exclaims Ruth Titterington from Leeds. How about Yardy getting picked ahead of Tredwell - anyone got an opinion on that? Mail us at email@example.com.
Over 4 Bresnan 4-1-0-0-0-0 28-0 - Bresnan gets a second over on the trot and it starts with a boundary as Butt steers some superb timing on the drive through cover. Meanwhile, Bowden is forced to have a word with the bowler, who has been caught running on the pitch far too often for the umpire's liking. Akmal closes the over with a string of lose shot outside the off-stump and he is clearly struggling with the pace of the track.
Over 3 Broad 0-2-1-4-0-0 23-0 - Continuing his penchant for bowling his seamers in short spells, Collingwood yanks Sidebottom from the attack as Broad gets a go. Akmal forces the issue over mid-on for a skewed four, almost falling onto his stumps in the process. He either needs longer spikes or more assured footwork. Other than the boundary, it's a pretty cheap over from the Notts star.
Inconsistent England "I suggest the result depends on which England turn up today, too: the unfortunate losers of the match which crashed a mighty 191 against the hosts, only to lose to the weather, and a dodgy Duckworth-Lewis method; or the lucky devils who triumphed depite posting a sick-looking, run-a-ball tally against the unfortunate Irish. Funny game, this Twenty20," giggles Peter Clarke. And to think - it could have been green versus green today had Mum Nature not had the final say in Guyana a couple of days ago.
Over 2 Bresnan 1wd-4-0-0-0-0-0 16-0 - Bresnan gets the new ball ahead of Broad, fetching some early stick with only himself to blame. A leg-side wide is followed by four cranked through the covers, as Kamran enjoys the errant line and length. Realising the error of his ways, the beefy all-rounder cleans up his approach to clean up a potentially expensive over on the quiet.
Over 1 Sidebottom 6-1-0-0-0-4 11-0 - Discard Anderson enjoys a sly giggle from the sidelines as Kamran takes to Sidebottom in a flash, slapping a fat six over backward point off the first ball of the match. A single dabbed down to third man then leaves Butt to some strike, with the left-hander fondling around the off-stump and missing a couple of sighters. With Butt clearly struggling early on, Sidebottom lets his ascendancy slip with far too much width outside the off-stump to close the over. Butt obliges with four hammered through the off-side.
Absent Anderson "I really do not understand why Jimmy Anderson is again not playing. For me he is by far our best bowler and much more consistent than Stuart Broad and the mediocre Ryan Sidebottom," laments Stuart Tucker from Bristol. I agree with our sentiments about Broad, but it's clear that Sidebottom is getting a go ahead of Anderson because he is a southpaw and not a right-armer. England are quite fond of left-armers in limited-overs competition.
Game On Pleasantries, anthems and dancing girls out the way, as Pakistan openers Kamran and Butt, the English XI and umpires Bowden and Koertzen head out to the middle.
Pitch And Weather Pommie Mbangwa has surveyed the land, suggesting England's decision to bowl first is a bid to exploit the early moisture in the track. Other than that, it's a bit of a belter -with plenty of bounce on offer, as witness in South Africa's demolition of Afghanistan yesterday. Thank goodness, we are no longer in sodden Guyana and Mum Nature is in a wondeful mood in Barbados, where the temperature is sitting pretty at around 30 degrees Celsius. Not a drop of rain in sight.
Sensible Stuff The Pakistan selectors appear to have come to their senses in bringing Asif into the starting XI. I have no idea why he hasn't been playing throughout the tournament. Left-arm seamers and spinners are clearly the order of the day on these Caribbean pitches. Your thoughts on Sami' exclusion and Asif's inclusion? Mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting XIs England: Michael Lumb, Craig Kieswetter, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Eoin Morgan, Luke Wright, Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan, Graeme Swann, Mike Yardy, Ryan Sidebottom. Pakistan: Salman Butt, Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Hafeez, Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Fawad Alam, Misbah-ul-Haq, Abdul Razzaq, Mohammad Aamer, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Asif.
Team News England are unchanged, resisting the urge to bring James Anderson in ahead of Ryan Sidebottom. Big new from the Pakistan camp - Mohammad Sami has been dropped, with Mohammad Asif getting his first game of the tourney.
Toss News from out in the middle reveals Paul Collingwood has triumphed in the flip of the coin and England will bowl first.
Pillow Talk "I think the result will depend on which side of the bed Pakistan woke up on today. As a Pakistani, I hope it's the right side," says Hassan Yousaf. I know what you mean, Yousaf. We might get Pakistan, who conquered all in their path during the last World Twenty20 or Pakistan, who lost anything and everything Down Under recently.
Awesome(?) Afridi "This should be a close game. With the 'Boom Boom' factor I see Pakistan taking this match," insists Ateeq Malik. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and I sure hope Ateeq is referring to Afridi's role with the ball, for his batting these days is rather weak.
