World Twenty20 hotting up

Post categories: TMS team

Adam Mountford Adam Mountford | 22:49 PM, Wednesday, 10 June 2009

It was certainly an eventful group phase of the ICC World Twenty20 with one of the greatest upsets in cricket history as the Netherlands humbled hosts England, plus Australia crashing out of the tournament following defeats by a revitalised West Indies and an impressive Sri Lanka.

After all that Ireland's progression to the later stages of another ICC World Tournament seemed almost routine.

This World Twenty20 may not be liked by everyone, but there is something thrilling about seeing most of the greatest players on the planet performing over such a compact period of time. Already there have been so many highlights and so many amazing performances with the improvisation of Tillakaratne Dilshan, the big-hitting of Chris Gayle and the mystery of Ajantha Mendis my personal favourites.

But now the tournament really hots up with the remaining eight teams split into two groups as they battle to reach the semi-finals. Plus we have the extra bonus of the Women's World Twenty20 getting under way to run alongside the men's event.

Both England's men and women play on Thursday with India the opponents for Charlotte Edwards and her world champions at Taunton whilst Paul Collingwood leads his team against one of the tournament favourites South Africa at Trent Bridge.

Five Live Sports Extra and Radio Four long wave will have commentary from 1715 BST with Jonathan Agnew leading our team alongside Simon Hughes, Arlo White, Dermot Reeve and Jeremy Coney. Meanwhile Alison Mitchell will bring updates from Taunton - there will be reports on all of England's women's group games plus commentary on the women's semi-finals and final.

The Super Eights begin at 1330 BST on Thursday with Ireland's attempt to produce another shock as they take on injury-hit New Zealand. Five Live Sports Extra's coverage begins at 1315.

As well as our commentary on Thursday, listen out for the latest Phil Tufnell Cricket Show, which is part of Five Live Sport from 1900 BST. Shaun Udal, who lifted the domestic Twenty20 Cup last season, is one of Phil's guests.

On Friday the action moves to Lord's with the man who coached Pakistan to the World Twenty20 Final two years ago, Geoff Lawson, part of the Sports Extra team bringing you Pakistan v Sri Lanka from 1315 BST before holders India play West Indies from 1715 with commentary also on Radio Four long wave. Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar joins England's most capped player Alec Stewart and West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop in our commentary box.

Then at the weekend look out for two games broadcast on Five Live as New Zealand take on Pakistan from 1730 BST on Saturday and then the mouth-watering prospect of hosts v holders as England play India on Sunday evening.

Of course many people who bought tickets for Monday evening at The Oval may have been hoping for the first England-Australia meeting of the summer.

But if you are still looking for an Ashes fix then after the commentary on England v the West Indies on Five Live Sports Extra and Radio Four long wave look out for a new series on Five Live from 2100 BST "The Ashes Years", as Arlo White is joined by guests including Bob Willis and Mike Gatting to look back on the legendary 1981 series.

This is just one of the programmes to go along with the launch of our Test Match Special Ashes Archive which is already available to have a look at - all the details at bbc.co.uk/cricket (UK users only).

And don't forget as well as all BBC Radio's cricket coverage there are nightly TV highlights of the World Twenty20, plus look out on Sunday night for the latest episode in the excellent "Empire of Cricket" documentary series.

heh, heh.........what a match! heh, heh.........

England were completely outplayed by South Africa in their first match of the World Twenty20 Super Eights.

The hosts never got going and were all out for 111 with one ball to go after losing their last seven wickets for 33.

South Africa bowled and fielded well, but only three home players made double figures in an embarrassing display.

There were boos from the packed house at Trent Bridge as Jacques Kallis (57 not out) led South Africa to a seven-wicket win with 10 balls to spare.

Having lost to the Netherlands in the tournament's opening match, England appeared to have rediscovered some form in beating Pakistan at The Oval.

But after playing 18 Twenty20 internationals this was the lowest total recorded by England, and it renewed fears that Paul Collingwood's side lack the skills required to threaten the best teams in the shortest format of the game.

England must now beat India on Sunday, and West Indies the following day, but even two positive results would not necessarily be enough to put the hosts into the semi-finals.

In the first over of England's innings, Ravi Bopara left a couple of Dale Steyn deliveries outside the off-stump, then threw his hands at the last ball.

But Steyn had deceived the right-hander by taking the pace off the delivery, and Bopara tamely inside-edged onto his stumps.

Kevin Pietersen crashed boundaries off his first two balls but hit an Albie Morkel full toss down to Roelof van der Merwe at mid-on, and the fielder dived to his left to take a stunning catch.

The wicket, which came in the sixth over, was the first maiden of the tournament and England's total at the end of it was 25-3, Luke Wright having already departed. No team had scored fewer in the powerplay section.

Collingwood and Owais Shah then struggled to take runs off the spinners, as Van der Merwe and Johan Botha did a fine job on a dry wicket.

But with the overs drifting by - only 47 came from the first 10 - someone had to take risks.

Shah finally struck a couple of sixes, but Collingwood then lost two of his stumps to a Jacques Kallis delivery that he could have hit for four and in the next over James Foster was caught attempting a reverse sweep.

Suddenly, England's lower order was rudely exposed and there was only one more boundary from the last five overs - courtesy of Stuart Broad.

Wayne Parnell, the exciting new weapon in South Africa's pace arsenal, wound up with 3-14, bowling Broad and James Anderson with consecutive balls - and all in all it had been a very satisfactory showing from Graeme Smith's bowlers.

But his batsmen, who managed just 128 batting first against New Zealand, produced an anxious chase in the early part of their innings.

Smith top-edged Broad to James Foster, who had to dive to take the skier, and Herschelle Gibbs looked out of sorts - and could have been run out twice.

Against England's spinners, the required rate drifted to more than a run a ball. That was until Kallis, finally getting the loose ball he needed, deposited Adil Rashid for six over deep midwicket.

Any pressure there had been was released, and even Gibbs middled a few, taking Swann high over long-on for another maximum.

The Notts spinner exacted some revenge when turning one under Gibbs's attempted cut, but the job was almost done and when Kallis passed 50 by driving a Broad full-toss behind point for four, just 13 were needed from the final 24 balls.

Rashid enhanced his claims for England selection across the other formats with a lovely bit of slow bowling that saw South Africa's in-form AB de Villiers caught at slip.

But the game ended when Kallis cut Anderson to the point fence to end up with 58 from 49 balls.

Dwayne Bravo produced a magnificent all-round display to earn West Indies victory against holders India in their World Twenty20 contest at Lord's.

India opted to bat first and struggled as they were reduced to 29-3, before Yuvraj Singh (67) played a world-class knock to lift them up to 153-7.

Bravo (4-38) was the pick of the bowlers and he produced with the bat as he shared 58 with Lendl Simmons (44).

He finished unbeaten on 66 as West Indies won with eight balls to spare.

It was just desserts for West Indies, who played exceptionally throughout and got off to a scintillating start in the field, reducing India to 29-3 with Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina all failing.

Gambhir's wicket was thanks a sensational piece of fielding from Simmons, the 24-year-old running away from the wicket to take a steepling catch over his shoulder.

When Yuvraj came together with his captain Mahendra Dhoni they needed a partnership and they got it, though the skipper was painfully short of touch.

He was struggling to get the ball off the square and after crawling to 11 from 23 deliveries, it was almost a blessed relief when he holed out on the cover-point boundary.

Dhoni's departure seemed to free Yuvraj's shackles as he and Yusuf Pathan set about lifting a run rate which was hovering around the five mark, way below a respectable total.

Yusuf started the assault as he launched Dwayne Bravo into the evening sky and Yuvraj needed no second invitation, effortlessly clipping Jerome Taylor over mid-wicket for one outrageous six.

India managed post a decent total by scoring 56 from their last five overs, including fours from the last three balls of the innings from Harbhajan Singh.

India then struck early to continue their momentum, Andre Fletcher lasting only two balls as he was caught by the irrepressible Yuvraj at mid-off for 0.

West Indies were looking to Chris Gayle again and their captain produced a couple of remarkable pieces of timing to send the ball whistling to the boundary.

Yuvraj's magical knock ensured India posted a respectable total

But after Harbhajan had bowled only the second maiden of the tournament to him, he lost all fluency and was caught after top-edging an ugly hoik off Yusuf.

Bravo, full of confidence, was promoted in the order and with Simmons in tow he set about showing why as he played some magnificent cover drives to start upping the run rate.

Simmons played his share of exotic strokes too and after they had put on 58 together he holed out in the deep, top-edging an uncultured swat off Pragyan Ojha.

Bravo continued undeterred with a glorious straight drive for six the very next ball and he brought up his 50 soon after launching Ishant Sharma back over his head for another maximum.

With Shivnarine Chanderpaul doing his bit from the other end, Bravo held his nerve and finished with a majestic lofted cover-drive for six to ease West Indies to a wonderful victory.

heh, heh........the saga continues! heh, heh........

Umar Gul became the first man to take five wickets in a Twenty20 international as Pakistan thrashed New Zealand in the Super Eights.

Right-arm seamer Gul returned 5-6 to help bowl the Kiwis out for 99, the lowest total of the tournament so far.

Shahzaib Hasan marked his international debut with 35 off 28 balls before Pakistan, who had fallen to 71-4, posted 100-4 in 13.1 overs at The Oval.

Their six-wicket victory puts them in the hunt for a semi-final place.

Pakistan are now level on points with New Zealand and Sri Lanka at the top of Group F and, depending on other results, they could seal a last-four spot if they beat Ireland at The Oval on Monday.

"It was a good toss to lose," said Pakistan captain Younus Khan. "The key thing is getting a wicket in the first six overs and we got three.

"In the last couple of years Umar has bowled very well in Twenty20 cricket, he knows how to play this format."

Gul added: "It was a special day. The main thing was bowling the first six overs very well. The captain told me to go for wickets so that's what I did. I've been practising yorkers and it paid off."

Pakistan made a poor start with the ball in their defeat by Sri Lanka on Friday but on this occasion it was they who took the early initiative.

Despite Mohammad Aamir's first over costing 11 runs as Brendon McCullum got going in style, the Pakistan bowlers were quick to establish a disciplined rhythm and Younus' men were both vocal and sharp in the field.

They could hardly have wished for a better reward for their efforts as Black Caps danger-man McCullum skipped down the track and drove the superb Abdul Razzaq (2-17) to Fawad Alam at point.

Aaron Redmond and Martin Guptill got the scoreboard ticking over but Pakistan were still buzzing from their breakthrough and gave their supporters more to cheer about with the removal of both men.

Left-arm seamer Aamir (1-23) coaxed Redmond into mistiming an attempted heave over mid-on, gifting a catch to Gul, before Razzaq had Guptill trapped leg-before with a full, in-swinging delivery.

New Zealand were in real trouble and their predicament worsened when, with the run-rate already below six an over, Jacob Oram lofted Shahid Afridi (2-17) to Misbah-ul-Haq at extra cover.

With boundaries few and far between, the Black Caps were forced to trades in ones and twos as Afridi and Gul produced spells which were tailor-made for Twenty20 cricket.

Afridi drew applause from all sections of the crows after running backwards from mid-on to remove Scott Styris with a magnificent catch in front of the rope to give Gul his first victim.

His second arrived the very next ball when Peter McGlashan was trapped plumb in front of his stumps attempting to sweep.

Nathan McCullum, brother of Brendon, made just seven off 11 balls before seeing his leg stump uprooted by Gul, who again took two wickets in two balls as James Franklin was bowled playing across the line and Kyle Mills was caught by Shahzaib off a leading edge.

Vettori cut a disgruntled figure as his side succumbed

New Zealand had been torn to shreds and their evening was summed up when fit-again skipper Daniel Vettori, playing his first match of the tournament, succumbed to a needless run out.

Pakistan carried the momentum into their own innings and even had luck on their side when Kamran Akmal took five runs off the final ball of Mills' opening over.

The right-hander had already run a single when a direct hit at the non-striker's end raced away for four.

Akmal and Shahzaib were quick to open their shoulders and hit out with understandable abandonment - Shahzaib clubbed Vettori over long-on for six and Akmal got a maximum of his own by lofting Mills straight back over his head.

The very next ball Akmal pulled Mills straight to Guptill at deep square leg but Shahzaib continued the belt New Zealand to all parts of the ground, hitting Ian Butler for two fours and a six in the sixth over.

Razzaq was caught behind off Vettori and Shahzaib was run out by Brendon McCullum after setting off for a suicidal single.

Vettori was bowling superbly, giving the ball plenty of flight and landing it on a sixpence outside off stump, and when Shoaib Malik chipped the spinner to cover, Pakistan were suddenly 71-4 and looking nervous.

But Afridi pulled Butler for a timely six to get his side back on track and their triumph was confirmed when Brendon McCullum and Neil Broom collided in the field, allowing Afridi to take two off the bowling of Nathan McCullum.

"We discussed the wicket with the teams who played before us (South Africa and West Indies) and thought that if we made a reasonable total we could exert pressure on Pakistan," said Vettori.

"But our total was not good enough. They bowled very well but we never got the momentum going.

"One partnership is enough in Twenty20 cricket - it gives you the momentum - but we never got one."

heh, heh.......champions defeated! heh, heh.......

England kept alive their hopes of reaching the World Twenty20 semi-finals by eliminating holders India in a nail-biting Super Eights encounter.

Kevin Pietersen top-scored with a battling 46 off 27 balls as he and Ravi Bopara put on 71 for the second wicket and helped their side post 153-8.

England then shone in the field as Graeme Swann (2-28) and Ryan Sidebottom (2-31) put their side on course to win.

India were restricted to 150-5 as the hosts claimed a three-run victory.

The result puts England level on points with West Indies in Group E, while it means South Africa have now qualified for the semi-finals.

England play the West Indies at The Oval on Monday and the winner of that game will join the Proteas in qualifying for the last four.

India face South Africa at Trent Bridge on Tuesday but they will be playing for pride alone after seeing their title defence crumble at an electric Lord's, where their supporters were in the majority and the atmosphere was sensational.

They needed 19 off Sidebottom's final over to clinch victory but, although Yusuf Pathan smashed a six and skipper Mahendra Dhoni a four, England held their nerve under immense pressure to triumph.

India would have noted that England's comprehensive defeat by South Africa on Thursday came after they batted first and Dhoni's decision to send the hosts in after winning the toss came as no surprise.

It appeared to be a good call when, after just 1.4 overs, Luke Wright attempted to pull a full-pitched ball from RP Singh but succeeded only in top-edging it to a diving Yusuf Pathan scampering backwards from leg slip.

England were off to a terrible start but the departure of Wright was perhaps a blessing in disguise because it marked the arrival of Pietersen.

The right-hander, nursing a chronic Achilles problem, was quick to signal his intent with a couple of flicked boundaries and he was ably assisted by Bopara, who pulled Ishant Sharma for a massive six to calm any nerves.

Dhoni handed the ball to Yuvraj Singh - a player described by Pietersen as a "pie-thrower" during England's tour to the sub-continent last winter - but he was carted all over the ground before being pulled out of the attack after just two overs.

India would have the last laugh, however, as Harbhajan Singh (3-30) reduced the run-rate with a terrific spell and Ravindra Jadeja (2-26) then sent both men packing.

Bopara's stumps were split after stepping outside leg and missing his shot, while Pietersen was trapped lbw as he tried to slog a second successive ball over midwicket for six.

England promoted Dimitri Mascarenhas up to four and the runs began to flow but unfortunately for the Hampshire player he was losing partners with alarming regularity at a crucial point in the innings.

Harbhajan was the destroyer-in-chief as Owais Shah holed out to Jadeja at deep mid-wicket, James Foster fell caught and bowled and Swann was bowled.

India supporters were in the majority at an electric Lord's

In between the Shah and Foster wickets captain Paul Collingwood was ousted by Zaheer and, although England took five runs off the penultimate delivery, India would have been the happier of the two sides.

But their reply got off to an unconvincing start in the face of some aggressive bowling by the England seamers.

James Anderson coaxed Gautam Gambhir into miscuing a pull shot that landed safely and Sidebottom came inches away from bowling Rohit Sharma via an inside edge.

Rohit Sharma would not be so fortunate when another inside edge did cannon into his stumps and Sidebottom had his second victim in as many overs when Suresh Raina was snapped up by Wright at deep square leg.

England's disciplined bowling and excellent work in the field kept boundaries to a minimum and ensured India remained some way adrift of the required run-rate.

That began to change when, the ball after Mascarenhas had Gambhir caught at short fine-leg, Yuvraj lofted the same bowler over the top for six.

But the ineffective Jadeja was magnificently caught by Broad just in front of the long-off boundary and then came the killer blow.

Yuvraj famously smashed one Broad over for six maximums during the inaugural World Twenty20 in 2007 and, while still at the crease, he was always going to be dangerous.

But England had clearly done their homework on the left-hander this time round and when Foster showed lightning reactions to whip off the bails after Swann had beaten his outside edge, Yuvraj was gone.

Dhoni and Pathan were India's last genuine hope of salvaging victory and they gave it a good go, but they ran out of time and the day belonged to England.

heh, heh......enjoy the flight home! heh, heh.........
