NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 1st ODI

England v Australia

England won by 15 runs

16.6

Lee to Bell, OUT, oh no, Bell MK II suffers a familiar glitch, hit in front of off and he has to go, no matter how attractive his 41 was! It was another testing ball from Lee, nipping back just a shade and Bell tried to drive back down the pitch, looked like a good call from Aleem Dar and the batsman decides against reviewing

IR Bell lbw b Lee 41 (91m 58b 5x4 0x6) SR: 70.68

England 74/1   AN Cook 28* (44b 3x4)   B Lee 5-1-12-1

20.6

Cummins to Cook, OUT, Lord's falls quiet as Cook chases one outside off and nicks off. Cummins has his first international wicket against England (the first of many?) and Australia's bowlers are finally getting the rewards for their disciplined approach

AN Cook c †Wade b Cummins 40 (112m 59b 5x4 0x6) SR: 67.79

England 89/2   IJL Trott 3* (9b)   PJ Cummins 4-0-16-1

28.1

McKay to Bopara, OUT, gone! Strikes first ball with a lovely delivery. Squared up Bopara on off stump and the edge flies comfortably to Michael Clarke at slip who is rewarded for still attacking

RS Bopara c Clarke b McKay 15 (24m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

England 121/3   IJL Trott 18* (31b 1x4)   CJ McKay 5.1-1-19-1

40.1

Doherty to Trott, OUT, tossed up on leg stump and bowled him! Trott simply missed with an attempted glance through the on side, almost yorking himself as the ball dipped and slipped under the bat to break the wicket

IJL Trott b Doherty 54 (100m 70b 3x4 0x6) SR: 77.14

England 189/4   EJG Morgan 31* (33b 1x4 1x6)   XJ Doherty 8.1-0-42-1

49.6

Watson to Kieswetter, OUT, length ball, Kieswetter hits on the up but it goes straight up, long-off comes scampering in from the boundary and takes a well-judged diving catch

C Kieswetter c Warner b Watson 25 (41m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 86.20

England 272/5   EJG Morgan 89* (63b 5x4 4x6)   SR Watson 10-0-65-1
