T20 World Cup - Match 2
Date: Tuesday 19th Sept, 2012
19-September-2012: The result was on for Australia and they did better for their team. Shane Watson was awesome with bowl and bat. He got wicket on his first ball he bowled in this match. He was hitting the ball quite superbly. He gave a simple run to a simple win over Ireland.
Today, Ireland won the toss and elected to bat first. They were not able to have a good total on the board against mightly Australians. They were 123/7 in their 20 overs quota and it was not good for the good batting line-up of Autralians. Shane Watson had 3 wickets while Starc had 2.
Australians started very well with Warner and Watson on the crease. Warner departs after getting 26 in 23 balls but Shane Watson was in a mood to have a good score and he did it with fifty. He scored 51 runs from 30 balls with 5 fours and 3 sixes. It was an easy win for Australia and got the valuable 2 points.
