The camera panned to the Australian dressing room. The sky was gloomy, the rain was getting heavier and the covers were on for two hours in Hobart. Steven Smith and Shane Watson looked nervous. More than they had been for the two and a half hours and 25.4 overs that Scotland batted.

It began as a chilly day and the wind that buffeted Nick Knight's suit at the toss stayed on to ward off the bad weather and clear passage for Australia's march into avoiding a quarter-final bout with South Africa. James Faulkner, as per his finisher contract, was there to seal a 131 chase with a six.
