Australia v England

Australia won by 6 wickets

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

32.1

Clark to Pietersen, no run, and it's down the leg side, worked meekly to leg

32.2

Clark to Pietersen, no run, really well bowled, just outside off and driven back to the bowler

32.3

Clark to Pietersen, 1 run, clipped off his legs to mid-on - oh no! More disaster for England here is it? Pietersen sprints like a winner and makes his ground...they're getting a bit panicky here

32.5

Clark to Pietersen, 1 run, pushed off the back foot into the covers

England 73/3   KP Pietersen 2* (4b)

33.1

Warne to Pietersen, OUT, GOT HIM! What a ripper from Warne, pitching on leg and Pietersen tries to sweep...and it clips off stump. Massive, ripping, gripping legbreak. Warne roars his delight at Pietersen who marches off and England are now in a hole

KP Pietersen b Warne 2 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 73/4   KP Pietersen 2 (5b)
