It rained sixes in Columbo, as the Sixer Clouds, Watson & Warner, have reached the Lankan Metropolis from Dubai across the Arabian Sea.
Australia defeated India by nine wickets in a Group Two Super Eights Match of the World Twenty20 in Colombo. The Australians raced past the modest target of 141 in the fifteenth (15) over at the Premadasa stadium.
Shane Watson had made 72 from 42 deliveries and struck seven (7) sixes. He cleared the boundary straight down the ground, over midwicket and over square leg. A pair of enormous consecutive sixes pulled over midwicket off Irfan Pathan showed Watson's power.
David Warner remained unbeaten on an equally entertaining 63 from 42 deliveries and muscled three (3) sixes of his own, including two in a row off Harbhajan Singh, whose two overs cost twenty (20) runs. Rare though it may be, Warner was the quiet partner.
