Australia v England

Australia won by 6 wickets

Overs 0-50

21.5

Giles to Martyn, no run, back and blocked

21.6

Giles to Martyn, 1 run, swept and Cook running in from backward square leg almost manages to dummy himself but dives and stops it at the second attempt

Australia 117/3   DR Martyn 1* (2b)

22.1

Flintoff to Martyn, FOUR, Martyn takes a big stride and launches a big hit high over mid-off and the seagulls' slumber is again disturbed

22.2

Flintoff to Martyn, OUT, wide and Martyn leans back and looks to crack that through point but only hits it hard at Strauss who takes the catch. No celebrations, but England at least have a glimmer of hope now ... the odds are, however, still with Australia

DR Martyn c Strauss b Flintoff 5 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Australia 121/4   DR Martyn 5 (4b 1x4)
Overs 0-50
