Girls go down in low-scoring warm-up

Colombo, Sri Lanka - The Moors Sports Club ground in Colombo saw two usually free-scoring women’s teams – Australia and West Indies – play out a low-scoring warm-up game ahead of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20.

Australia Women won the match by 19 runs as neither side looked comfortable with the alien conditions.
Batting first after winning the toss, Australia Women rode Jess Cameron’s 28-ball 37 and Alex Blackwell’s 21-ball 26 to end its 20 overs at 110-8.

Windies plan to hit Ireland hard

Colombo, Sri Lanka - The West Indies came into the ICC World Twenty20 2012 as one of the favoured teams to go all the way, but after a below-par bowling and fielding effort allied with untimely weather intervention, they finds themselves a defeat away from elimination.

Gayle's power had Watson sweating

Colombo, Sri Lanka - The general consensus was that Australia went hammer and tongs in its quest for 192, and victory against the West Indies, with an eye on the weather. Shane Watson debunked that theory, saying the Australians had no idea rain was around until he saw the groundstaff running in with the covers.  

Australia had reached 100 for 1 in 9.1 overs at that stage and was declared winner by 17 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method to secure its place in the Super Eights of the ICC World Twenty20 2012.

We were still in in, says Sammy

Colombo, Sri Lanka - Darren Sammy didn’t look too downcast after his team went down by 17 runs on the Duckworth-Lewis method to Australia in the ICC World Twenty20 2012, though the West Indian skipper did say that had the rain not intervened, his side could still have successfully defended their 191-8.

Australia had reached 100-1 in 9.1 overs, needing a further 92 off 65 deliveries with two set batsmen in the middle in Shane Watson and Mike Hussey.

Windies suffer cruel defeat in the rain

Colombo, Sri Lanka - West Indies drew the fans by the thousands to the R Premadasa Stadium but it was Australia that drew the attention of the rest of the field as the ICC World Twenty20 2012 went into overdrive on a rain-interrupted on Saturday night.

No team in world cricket entertains as much as West Indies does, and with its batting superstars in the forefront, it put in a power-packed performance to justify all the hype surrounding it in the lead-up to the competition.
