Match No – 26th Match, 2nd Semi Final – Australia v West Indies
Day and Date – Fri Oct 5, 2012
Match Time – 13:30 GMT | 19:00 local (7.00 pm)
Venue – R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo
Today in the second semi final of T20 World Cup 2012, Australia will take on West Indies at the R Premadasa Stadium.
Australia who were unbeaten until their last match against Pakistan needs to forget that match and take up the Caribbean challenge all together differently. Watson, Warner and Hussey have been the only batsmen who have performed well so far in this edition of World Cup. But if they need to lift the trophy, the entire teams needs to contribute. This shortcoming was seen in their last match against Pakistan.
West Indies, on the other hand have been a team depending on its batting line up. But the spinner Sunil Narine is the one on which they will be banking today.
Australia Squad for T20 World Cup 2012:George Bailey (c), Shane Watson (vc), Cameron White, Dan Christian, David Hussey, Pat Cummins, David Warner, Xavier Doherty, Glenn Maxwell, Ben Hilfenhaus, Brad Hogg, Michael Hussey, Clint McKay, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade.
