David 🙌

Close finish
David boundary
AUS 216/4 (20)
 
A J
Uff
 
Well, you can't ask for a much closer game
AUS won by 6 wickets (0 balls remaining)
Slightly disappointing not to win, but it's not too bad
 
A J
Only if 6 or 5 needed off the last ball
 
Or a Super Over
Or several Super Overs
But anyway
Good game
 
A J
9:37 AM
If Phillips had saved that, it would have been counted as one of his great fielding
Yup
 
Unfortunate that David boundary became a 🙌 because it hit the boundary ropes
But there you go
 
A J
Yeah, we can keep going like this
 
50 for Southee and Milne
 
A J
This is why every run, every save matters in cricket
 
Yep
Ferguson 1/23 (4) was best for NZ
 
A J
9:39 AM
He took the important wicket of Maxwell, the bowler
 
Also a very good innings by Ravindra
 
A J
Yup and Conway too
Unfortunately they got out in two consecutive balls
 
Yes, that really hurt the scoring rate
 
A J
Let's see if Boult make a good comeback when he joins the playing xi in the next game.
 
I think that was worthy of a WC game
AUS get Wade
I wonder if they'll play Smith
 
A J
9:42 AM
That's unlikely
 
KW will be back too, I think
 
A J
They still look very strong without him
 
Yeah, AUS have a very good T20I side
 
A J
@PaulWhite I thought he will be back for tests. He is on leave for the same reasons Kohli is.
 
🤷‍♂️
I might be misremembering
 
A J
9:44 AM
Yep. He is not playing T20Is but will be available for the test series
SL vs AFG T20I game tonight but these have been pretty-much one-sided
