ICC World Twenty20 2010
Australia Win By 49 Runs Fifty runs might not sound much, but Australia handed out a big hiding today. Their two openers punished the Indian bowlers and propelled them to a massive 184 for five. That was always going to be difficult to chase, but India's chase were horrible and almost all their batsmen departed after mistiming their shots. Rohit Sharma was the only man to offer any resistence and India will need to come up with a better plan in their next game. Don't go too far as our next game starts in about 45 minutes. See you then.
Over 18 Tait 1-W-wd-1-W 135 all out - Shaun Tait returns for his last over. Sharma punches down the ground and there's a yes, no, yes. They eventually take the single.WICKET! That single was a mistake as Zaheer departs next ball. We've seen plenty of mistimed pulls today and Zaheer perishes in similar fashion. Michael Clarke completes the catch. Sharma dabs one to the on for one. WICKET! No 11 Ashish Nehra is greeted by a full, straight one and he's too slow to get his bat down. That is that.
Over 17 Nannes 2-4-2-6-0-1 132-8 - Australia's star man with the ball Dirk Nannes is back for his final over. Sharma clears mid-off and comes back for a second. Next he goes for a pull, but gets a leading edge that flies wide of the keeper for four. Two more to the total as he plays a good looking shot through point. Six more! Sharma stands and delivers straight down the ground. This is a great knock from Sharma. He keeps the strike with one to midwicket.
Over 16 Smith 0-6-2-1-1-0 117-8 - Zaheer Khan joins the six-hitting party as he clears the long-on fence quite comfortably. Smith gets some spin and Zaheer does well to get it between keeper and short third man. They take a couple.
Over 15 Watson 1-6-W-0-4-6 107-8 - After Sharma takes one to fine leg, Harbhajan climbs into an attempted Shane Watson bouncer and gets six over the middwicket fence. WICKET! Bhajji goes for one big shot too many and holes out to David Hussey at long-off. That one went very high and Hussey did well to keep his eyes on the ball. India's 100 comes up with a top edge to the fine leg fence from Sharma. Another brilliant shot from Rohit. This time he goes straight down the ground for six.
Over 14 Smith wd+1-6-0-6-1-0 90-7 - Smith starts his third over with a wide and Bhajji decides to take the extra run. Sharma plays another magnificent shot straight down the ground for six. He's playing himself into the India starting XI for the next game. Sharma goes to 49 with another six down the ground. He goes to 50 off 33b, 4x6, 2x4 with one to the sweeper on the cover boundary. Excellent innings.
Over 13 Johnson1-0-2-4-0-1 73-7 - Sharma nudges it through cover for another single. Harbhajan skies it over point and comes back for a second. He follows it up with a pull through square leg for four. Good shot that. Johnson hasn't been at his best today, but it won't matter as the rest of the bowlers have been brilliant and India have been awful.
Over 12 Tait 1-0-wd-2-1-0-0 65-7 - Aussie skipper Michael Clarke is going for the kill here and he brings Shaun Tait back into the attack. Tait nearly gets a wicket first up as Harbhajan Singh gets a leading edge to third man. Sharma gets a couple through midwicket and then digs out a good yorker. Big appeal from Australia as Bhajji's attempted paddle is caught behind. Replays show it came off hip.
Over 11 Watson 1-1-wd-W-6-0-4 60-7 - Shane Watson comes back for his second over. The Indian half-century comes up with a couple of singles and a wide. WICKET! Wicket number seven goes down! Jadeja cracks the ball straight to David Hussey at a deepish mid-on. The left-hander decides to cruise to the other end, but there's a direct hit and he's short of his ground. Poor, poor stuff from Jadeja. Sharma continues the one-man show with a scoop shot over the keeper for six and then ends the over with four through midwicket.
Over 10 Smith 1-1-1-1-1-0 47-6 - Ravindra Jadeja - he who had an awful day with the ball - joins Sharma in the middle and they are happy to pick off the singles from the spinner.
Over 9 Johnson 1-wd-0-wd-0-1-1-W 42-6 - Mitchell Johnson was pretty expensive in his opening after. Sharma takes one to third man. Johnson decides to bend his back for a couple of short balls, but he overdoes it and goes down the leg side for a wide. Couple of swings and misses from Pathan. Bat and ball finally makes contact and Pathan takes one to third man. WICKET! Another mistimed shot, another wicket. This is awful stuff from India. Pathan goes for a big shot, but gets a leading edge that flies down to deep backward point. David Warner makes up plent of ground from the cover boundary and takes a very good catch.
Over 8 Smith 0-0-1-1-W-0 37-5 - Spinner Steven Smith comes into the attack. Will the Indians go after him from the word go? Dhoni and Sharma get a couple of singles. WICKET! I think my earlier question has been answered. Dhoni is down the track and looks to clear the long-on fence, but he finds David Hussey. Yusuf Pathan is the new batsman, but you fear that is that for India.
Gordon Or Gautam? "India should have Gordon Brown opening the batting he seems to be able to stick around for longer than them today" - quips David Kempton.
Over 7 Johnson 0-2-1-0-wd-1-6 35-4 - One left-hander is replaced by another as Mitchell Johnson gets a bowl. Another wild swing and miss from Sharma. You have to wonder what is going through his mind. His skipper at the other end won't be too happy, I'm sure. He finally makes contact with the ball and gets two to fine leg and one to third man. Another swing and miss, this time from Dhoni. After Dhoni takes one to the sweeper on the cover boundary, Sharma finally gets hold of one as he pulls a short one over the long-on fence for six.
Over 6 Watson 0-0-1-0-0-0 24-4 - The first bowling change of the innings sees Shane Watson on in place of Tait. Sharma plays a couple of indifferent shots. First he mistimes a pull shot (we've seen a few of those today) and then he looks to go after a short one. He's off strike with a steer to third man.
Over 5 Nannes 1-0-4-0-1-W 23-4 - Yuvraj Singh opens his account with a single to third man while Sharma plays a delightful shot through long-on for four and then has a swing and miss. Another good shot from Sharma, but this time it's just one to midwicket. WICKET! Brilliant stuff from Nannes as he yorks Yuvraj with the perfect ball. Yuvi was all arms and bat there as he tried to get something on it, but he was way too late. MS Dhoni strides out with his side in deep trouble.
Over 4 Tait 0-wd-0-4-W-0-0 17-3 - India have surprisingly decided to send Rohit Sharm in before Yuvraj Singh. India's batsmen are putting up a display on how not to pull as Raina also plays a false stroke while attempting the shot. He gets a top edge that flies over the keeper for four. WICKET! The in-form Raina perishes. He's in position to play the pull shot and ends up skying it. Three people converge on the ball, but captain Michael Clarke is the man to complete the catch at the non-striker's end. Rohit Sharma plays a couple of air shots.
Over 3 Nannes W-1-1-0-0-W 12-2 - WICKET! Murali Vijay's stay at the crease comes to an end. He looks to work the ball to the on side, but gets a leading edge and the ball pops up to Cameron White at cover. Man of the moment Suresh Raina is the new batsman and he rotates the strike nicely with Gambhir. WICKET! It's a two wickets in the over for Nannes and it's another mistimed shot. Gambhir goes for a pull, but also fails to get hold of it and his hand comes off the bat. The ball goes in the air and the man at square leg takes a comfortable catch. Disastrous start for India.
Over 2 Tait 4-0-4-0-0-0 10-0 - Shaun Tait shares the new ball and he bowls a loosener, offering Gambhir some width outside off. The opener reaches for it and puts the ball away through point for four. Ooh! Short one and Gambhir takes his eyes off the ball and then decides at the final moment to play a shot. End result is skying the ball down to third man. The man on the fence makes a bit of meal of the dive and it goes for four. Tait mixes things up after that with short and slower ones.
Over 1 Nannes 0-0-0-0-2-0 2-0 - Murali Vijay takes first strike and there's a slip next to MS Dhoni. The first few balls are bang on target and the opener defends. Short ball from Nannes and Vijay pulls. He doesn't get hold of it, but it falls in no-man's land in the midwicket region. He gets beaten by a beauty final ball. That one took off. Something in it for the quicks.
Let's Get Going Again Dirk 'Top Wickettaker In The Tournament' Nannes has the new ball in his hand and Gautam Gambhir and Murali Vijay are the two openers for India.
Can India Pull It Off? It's a very difficult ask batting at more than nine for 20 overs, but India's team is stocked with batsmen. Let's hope one of Suresh Raina or Yuvraj Singh hit form today.
Aussies Finish On 184 For Five Not quite the 200-plus tally they would've hoped for in the wake of Watson and Warner's heroics at the top of the knock, but a formidable target regardless. Dhoni would've been better off introducing a fourth slow bowler rather than allowing Zaheer his full four overs, as the opening batsman and right-hander Hussey really took to the ball coming onto the bat. Stick around for the chase, it should be a cracker...
Over 20 Nehra 2-2-0-0-W-1 184-5 - Dhoni reckons Nehra is the better bet ahead of Yuvraj and it's a good choice as the Aussie duo struggle to get a couple of low full tosses to the fence. With the pressure mounting, Hussey tries to force the issue over midwicket. Wicket! But a premeditated swipe across the line to a yorker undoes him -and his stumps - entirely.
Over 19 Zaheer 1-2-1-1-0-1 179-4 - It seems Yuvraj will get the last over of the knock, as Zaheer gets its penultimate. Dhoni is meticulous in his field placement, forcing White to have a word with him about hurrying it up. The Indian captain couldn't be bothered and carries on with his pedestrianism. Eventually one, two and another one - all skewed down the ground - see Hussey and Watson bide their time ahead of the bad ball, which does not arrive.
Over 18 Nehra 0-1-4-W-1-1-0 173-4 - With three overs to go in the innings, I fancy it'll be Yuvraj and Zaheer to finish it off after this over. Wicket! For now, it's Nehra who fetches his last tap at the hands of Hussey, who clobbers four across mid-on only to hole out to long-on the very next ball. Safe hands from boundary rider Vijay as one Hussey replaces another. Left-hander Mike is in now. India have managed to peg things back a touch across the last couple of overs and the Aussies might not reach the 200 they looked dead set for about 30 minutes ago.
Over 17 Yuvraj 4-1-W-1-0-0 167-3 - Far too full and straight from Yuvraj, who has Hussey flat-bat him down the ground for four and then one. Wicket! The part-time bowler then snapples his second scalp of the day, as Haddin darts down the crease, fails to get to the pitch of the ball and rubbernecks to watch Dhoni topple the bails. Not sure what Haddin was hoping to achieve there; he didn't really look to swing at or block the ball. White in now.
Over 16 Zaheer 4-1-1-2-1wd-1-6 161-2 - Hussey has a go over square-leg but his timing isn't up to scratch for now so it's just four rather than the two more he had hoped four. Haddin, meanwhile, tends to some fuller deliveries as Khan realises that short-pitched bowling is going to get him nowhere fast on this track. That lesson, however, is quickly out the window - and over the midwicket fence - ass Haddin closes the over with his first six of the day.
Over 15 Harbhajan 1-1-1-0-0-0 145-2 - Adding some additional - if momentary - pressure on the back of the previous over's wicket, Bhajji zips through his last over of the day with the superb economy all and sundry have come to expect from the star spinner.
Over 14 Yuvraj 6-0-6-1-1-W 142-2 - Watson watches from the sidelines mid-interview as Warner goes big and then bigger, with six and six more over long-on and long-on again. The fielder caught the latter, but on the wrong side of the ropes. Wicket! It's Yuvraj who has the last laugh though, darting in the quicker delivery slightly wider of the off-stump. Warner can't resist a wallop over the cover ring, but only manages a thick edge, which Dhoni does well to pouch. Wicketkeeper-batsman Haddin in now.
Over 13 Yusuf 6-1-6-0-1-1 128-1 - Warner takes the tournament sixes tally to its 151st with six cranked from back of the crease and over midwicket. That too has landed on the rafters and will take a minute or two to find. Someone eventually retrieves it before the half-centurion offers Hussey some strike. Dear Dave obliges with - you guessed it - six more. Backing away to the leg-side to loft with the straightest of bats, Hussey has picked up where he left off against Pakistan a couple of days ago. Looks as though he will be going even bigger today...
Over 12 Nehra 1-1-6-0-0-0 113-1 - "Hussey's job will be to give Warner as much strike as possible," says Ravi Shastri. I hardly agree. You can bet your bottom dollar the new man at the crease will be just as six-hungry as the rest of 'em. Right on cue, he get stuck straight in with six swatted over midwicket and Nehra is at an utter loss where to pitch the ball next. He decides slightly back of a length is the order of the day for now, managing to close the over on the quiet despite the right-hander's advances.
Over 11 Yusuf 1-1-1-6-W-1 105-1 - Warner brings up his half-century, as does Watson. The former reaches his 32 balls with two fours and four sixes, while the latter manages as much in 31 balls, including one four and half a dozen biggies. Wicket! Then, their century partnership is all over, as Watson swipes across the line, misses some low bounce and has the ball snipe through to the stumps. In comes Hussey, Dave not Mike.
Over 10 Jadeja 6-6-6-0-0-0 94-0 - Warner decides he had best not let Watson get too far ahead, continuing Jadeja's nightmare for a six sixes across six balls of sort. Adding to the three off the last three balls of his previous spell, Jadeja fetches six, six and six over long-on, midwicket and Cow Corner respectively as Warner draws level with his batting on 47. Surely Dhoni won't offer the poor bloke another over? Australia gunning in at 9.6 to the over at the halfway mark of their knock.
Over 9 Yusuf 0-1-1-1-0-2 76-0 - Pathan succeeds where the other bowlers have failed hopelessly, restricting the boundaries - for this over, at least - despite Warner and Watson's high hopes. Their collective timing is a touch sluggish for now. Must be the bowler's penchant for varying his pace.
Over 8 Zaheer 0-4-1-6-1-1 71-0 - Far too many singles in the previous over for Warner's liking, so he forces the issue with a boundary shoveled over mid-on. A single snuck to the inner ring leaves Watson to the strike, who lunges his front foot down the track, heaves through the line and watches with pride as another big six sails over long-on. These two have been scoring quickly that they've hardly given me chance to mention their half-century partnership. So much for that, as it's well on it's way to 100 now...
Over 7 Yusuf 1-1-1-1-1-0 58-0 - Zaheer and Ashish will surely not get their respective full complements today as another spinner enters the attack. This time it's the right-arm trundlers of usuf, who is more about darting 'em in than looking for flight or turn. Warner and Watson adjust their sights accordingly, biding their time through a slew of singles.
Over 6 Zaheer 1-2-6-0-0-1 53-0 - Dhoni has lost confidence in Jadeja for now, yanking him out of the attack and looking to his veteran seamer. A comedy of errors kicks off the over, as midwicket misses an attempted direct-hit at the non-striker's end, the fielder backing up fluffs his duty and the bloke next to him is left to clean up. At the end of it all Warner has a single and an overthrow, but he could have quite easily been out had the initial fielder - Raina - been on target. The dashing left-hander isn't about to let that mistake go unpunished and duly cranks six over long-on before closing the over on the defensive quiet. And so ends the Powerplay.
Over 5 Harbhajan 1-4-0-1-1-1 43-0 - Warner continues to assum the role of second fiddle, trotting through to the non-striker's end as Watson welcomes the strike. He cuts well for four before swiping with the turn but missing. The ball balloons into his pads but there is no way the appeal will be given out - sliding down the leg-side by a Country Mile and gathered a slight edge regardless.
Over 4 Jadeja 0-1-0-6-6-6 35-0 - Nehra is yanked out of the attack as Dhoni looks to the left-arm spin of Jadeja, who is afforded a solitary slip and cover on the long-on fence. There's no fielder standing on the rafters of the midwicket stand though, as Watson absolutely screams arbuably the biggest six of the tourney over the ropes and out of the ground. Watson isn't done yet, heaving another six and another six over long-on and square-leg respectively. Jadeja far, far too short in that over and Dhoni can't be too pleased. Warner must be kicking himself for taking the single earlier in the over...
Over 3 Harbhajan 0-2-0-1-0-1 16-0 - Dropped! Bhajji's string of seven dot balls on the trot almost fetches a cherry on top in the form of a wicket, but Jadeja can't hang onto Watson's errant slog-sweep at backward square-leg. By no means an easy catch but at this level the tougher chances must be snappled. Watson is left to ride his luck for two lucky runs from the ricochet off Jadeja's hands. Warner, meanwhile, seems very one-dimensional for the moment: he is intent on hitting through cover and only through cover.
Over 2 Nehra 4-0-1-0-6-1 12-0 - One of two southpaw seamers in the Indian XI share the new ball with the spinner. Nehra starts with a rank loosener, with Warner gifted plenty of width to spank four through cover to get off the mark. A single sniped down the ground leaves Watson to the strike, who struggles to put Nehra away on the cut so he opts for the good ol' agricultural mow over long-on for the first six of the day. He middled that entirely despite an initial inability to time the ball - ominous signs for India...
Over 1 Harbhajan 0-0-0-0-0-0 0-0 - Clarke was right on the money when he anticipated India opening their attack with a spinner as Harbhajan kicks off proceedings to Watson, who is immediately concerned by the additional bounce outside the off-stump. Some solid back-foot defence sees the resolute right-hander through the bulk of the over, before a slight tweak in length has Watson second-guessing whether or not to close the maiden on the front or back foot. Top opening over from Bhajji, indeed.
Game On Pleasantries, anthems and dancing girls out the way, as Aussie openers Warner and Watson, the Indian XI and umpires Bowden and Doctrove head out to the middle.
Pitch And Weather The resident pundits have surveyed the land, confirming India'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 witnessed in yesterday's matches. 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
Sharma Selection Rohit ahead of Chawla - right move from India? The former is more a batsman than he is an all-rounder. I hardly think his spin will be able to play a handy role on this big stage. This isn't the IPL and he isn't going to be bowling to some domestic nobody. Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting XIs India: Murali Vijay, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Dhoni, Yusuf Pathan, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra. Australia: David Warner, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke, David Hussey, Cameron White, Mike Hussey, Brad Haddin, Steven Smith, Mitchell Johnson, Shaun Tait, Dirk Nannes.
Team News Right on cue, Dinesh Karthik is resigned to the sidelines as Gautam Gambhir returns from injury. Out goes leg-spinner Piyush Chawla and in comes batting all-rounder Rohit Sharma too. Zaheer Khan replaces the injured Praveen. The Aussies draft in fit-again Mitchell Johnson, as Ryan Harris returns to the bench.
Toss News from out in the middle reveals Mahendra Dhoni has triumphed in the flip of the coin and India will bowl first. He is hoping for "a bit of early swing from the early conditions."
Let's Hear From You Folks, you were full of opinion yesterday when Pietersen was pounding Pakistan and Morkel was savaging the Black Caps. We'd love to hear from you again, so get to it. A question to kick us off, perhaps: is Michael Clarke justified in his recent statement that India will look to their spin bowlers more than their pace men in this game? It is a fast bowler-friendly pitch they're playing on. So why does Clarke believe India will opt for the contrary? Mail us at email@example.com.
Yay For Yadav Sad news for India, who have lost Praveen Kumar to a side strain for the duration of the tournament. Good news for Umesh Yadav though, who cracks an international call-up on the back of a decent showing in the Indian Premier League.
Greetings Hello and welcome to our over-by-over commentary of the World Twenty Super Eights (Group E) clash between the Aussies and Indians at the Providence Stadium in Bridgetown, Barbados.
