One of the most riveting games of cricket I’ve ever seen!
India batted well and finish on 4/296 after their 50 overs. Australia gets off to a fantastic start with Gilchrist smashing them all over the park, but after 9 overs a big storm comes over.
After the rain clears a revised total is set of 225 from 34 overs. Australia restarts with only one wicket down in the tenth over, and looking well placed.
However some good Indian bowling brings it right down to the wire.
In the final over Australia is 8/218 with 3 deliveries left. Brett Lee is on strike, Andy Bichel is at the non-strikers left. With the equation showing 7 runs off 3 deliveries to win – the game looks over.
Brett Lee hits a 6 over cover, and the crowd goes absolutely insane. I go insane! Probably half of Australia goes insane!
One run off two balls to win and it’s pretty much a formality, and Lee smashes another ball to cover which is misfielded, and they complete the winning run with one ball to spare in the match.
Did you really need that commentary? Probably not. But it was damn good to watch, so if you’re a cricket fan and you didn’t see it, then your loss! 😉
Stereo goes in tomorrow – man, this is soooo gonna rock. First thing I’ll be doing is taking photos. 😀
