View dismissal MJ Lumb c †Wade b Fawad Ahmed 43 47 27 6 1 159.25
11.2 61.8 mph, first international wicket! Lumb goes for a slog sweep, the ball goes straight up in the air then floats behind the stumps on the breeze. Wade turns, trots back and settles under the catch. Ahmed is on the ledger 111/1
View dismissal AD Hales c Warner b Faulkner 94 80 61 11 2 154.09
18.6 82.3 mph, still no hundred for England...gets another low full toss which he clouts towards the bottom of the bat and is well taken, low at long-on 187/3
View dismissal LJ Wright c Johnson b Faulkner 30 20 18 3 1 166.66
16.2 83.6 mph, well held! Wright tries to get a low full toss over mid-off, but Johnson times his leap to perfection and holds it two hands, ensuring he doesn't let it spill as he thuds into the ground 157/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Coulter-Nile b Fawad Ahmed 20 15 11 0 2 181.81
19.4 53.9 mph, gone this time, with a googly, Morgan hits it firmly but without the height or distance and picks out deep midwicket 194/5
View dismissal JC Buttler b Fawad Ahmed 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
19.1 50.8 mph, well bowled! lovely delivery from Ahmed, bravely flighted up. It grips and spins past Buttler's prod as he just tried to dab it into the off side 187/4

  Australia innings (target: 196 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner c Hales b Dernbach 53 56 42 5 3 126.19
12.6 70.1 mph, gone this time! It hasn't proved costly, though. Warner slices a short delivery flat out to deep cover where Hales held the catch coming in off the boundary 111/4
View dismissal AJ Finch c Wright b Broad 5 6 5 1 0 100.00
1.2 86.4 mph, swats across the line, top-edged and the ball loops tamely to mid-on! England have slain the beast! Everyone was expecting him to go after the bowlers again and Finch is always going to live and die by the sword. Although it was more like the pen knife this time... Maybe not quite short enough to pull and Broad gets him 8/1
View dismissal SR Watson run out (Morgan) 7 6 6 1 0 116.66
2.4 from Finn, superb bit fielding from Morgan, a direct hit from backward point and Watson is gone for all money! He was sent back by Warner, never a run there, but Watson turned like a HGV backing up to a petrol pump, dived for the crease but Morgan's throw was on target, bouncing and shattering the stumps with the bat well short 15/2
View dismissal SE Marsh b Root 13 30 14 0 1 92.85
9.6 58.7 mph, bowled him, hitting across the line again! Marsh maybe didn't need to go big again in that over but he was feeling the pressure - he missed and Root hit, England break the stand 82/3
View dismissal GJ Bailey* lbw b Briggs 23 16 13 1 1 176.92
13.4 57.2 mph, he gets one! Bailey misses his sweep and (umpire) Bailey gives the decision. Didn't look dead straight. Well, that was dead straight. Hawk Eye shows hitting middle and leg full on. 113/5
View dismissal GJ Maxwell c Lumb b Dernbach 27 17 16 2 1 168.75
17.2 85.0 mph, that's the end of his fun. He flicks a low full toss straight down the throat of deep square-leg who barely had to take a step either way 148/7
View dismissal MS Wade b Briggs 4 7 4 0 0 100.00
15.1 60.5 mph, and another...round the wicket, a quicker delivery skids through and beats Wade's attempt at a pull 123/6
View dismissal JP Faulkner c Morgan b Dernbach 5 9 5 1 0 100.00
17.3 89.9 mph, what a catch! Superb from Morgan at backward point. It was a very sharp bouncer, Faulkner was in a horrid tangle as he tried to pull. Comes off the shoulder of the bat and it appeared it would fly just over Morgan, but he turned then pulled out a big leap to hold the catch 148/8
MG Johnson not out 3 14 5 0 0 60.00
View dismissal NM Coulter-Nile c Briggs b Finn 13 6 6 0 2 216.66
18.5 77.0 mph, the short ball works, down at 75mph, and it takes the top edge to short fine-leg...Finn came back very well after those two sixes 162/9
