    He survived a scare, grounded a sharp chance

    Meanwhile, Matthew Hayden continued with his stupendous form with the bat to complete 600 runs in the 2007 World Cup. He survived a scare when Ashwell Prince grounded a sharp chance that may have changed the course of the game.

    a scare - something happened that was startling
    survived - overcame

    [without having the full context] grounded a sharp chance - a fielder nearly caught the ball but just failed to do so
