Australia posted 305 for 6 against England in their first ODI match of the series, in Southampton | Sep 3, 2015
49.5 CR Woakes to MR Marsh, 6 runs, Marsh advances, cuts down the angle, takes the ball on the full... and whistles it straight back over the fence for six! A mighty swipe down the ground takes Australia above 300 | Sep 3, 2015
46.5 MA Wood to MS Wade, 2 runs, on the stumps, a slower ball, Wade heaves at it, gets a thick inside edge through square and hustles back for two to bring up a 40-ball half-century that has been a tonic for Australia's innings | Sep 3, 2015
36.6 AU Rashid to MS Wade, out, pushed into the covers, Stokes swoops... and Watson is run out by a mile! What was Wade thinking?! Never a run there and Stokes only had to return the ball over the stumps, Buttler completed the job and Watson was barely ambling into shot | Sep 3, 2015
35.3 MA Wood to GJ Maxwell, out, down the leg side, Maxwell flicks at it... does Buttler take the catch? Was there an edge? Joel Wilson raises his finger and after some discussion between Maxwell, Watson and the umpires, he heads off | Sep 3, 2015
32.2 AU Rashid to GJ Bailey, out, and another! Excellent stuff from Rashid. A quicker ball, skids on and just grips a little, Bailey on the back foot aiming through the leg side, misses his shot and is struck on the back leg in front of middle. Nothing flukey about that one. | Sep 3, 2015
30.6 AU Rashid to SPD Smith, out, another full toss, another wicket! Would you believe it! Smith is furious with himself. Was a juicy full toss, Smith was aiming to clear the deep midwicket boundary but couldn't get it wide, or over, Ben Stokes. That's a waste from the Australian captain | Sep 3, 2015
30.5 AU Rashid to SPD Smith, 6 runs, and now it's Smith's turn for a six over long-on, used his feet and lofted with a bit of bottom hand well clear of the rope | Sep 3, 2015
28.6 AU Rashid to GJ Bailey, 6 runs, that's a good response! Dispatches a friendly full toss over long-on for the first six of the day. Rashid doesn't get away with this one | Sep 3, 2015
