NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 1st ODI

England v Australia

England won by 15 runs

5.4

Finn to Watson, OUT, cry for caught behind as Watson looked to back-cut, given not out and England, who were convinced, refer this, there's a noise...and a mark on Hot Spot, this is going to be out and indeed up goes the finger. Watson stood still and tried to angle the ball away and got a thin nick through. England knew straight away, Aleem Dar perhaps couldn't hear the nick because of the wind but DRS again shows its worth

SR Watson c †Kieswetter b Finn 12 (24m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 20/1   DA Warner 7* (16b)   ST Finn 2.4-0-10-1

18.6

Anderson to Bailey, OUT, that will make him feel better! Bailey chops into his stumps. Was too close to guide down to third man and takes a bottom edge into the wood work.

GJ Bailey b Anderson 29 (59m 38b 3x4 0x6) SR: 76.31

Australia 96/2   DA Warner 51* (58b 5x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 5-0-22-1

20.2

Anderson to Warner, OUT, edged and that's a fantastic snag behind the stumps! Anderson pitched it up, having pushed Warner back, enticed him to drive and a thick edge flew towards first slip (which was vacant), meaning Kieswetter had to launch himself horizontally to grasp the ball. Warner, the danger man, is gone ... Is that a game changer?

DA Warner c †Kieswetter b Anderson 56 (94m 61b 6x4 1x6) SR: 91.80

Australia 102/3   MJ Clarke 0* (5b)   JM Anderson 5.2-0-26-2

29.1

Finn to Hussey, OUT, bumper, Hussey gets in a tangle, the ball hits him on the helmet ... and drops on to the stumps! Strange dismissal, that, Hussey mistimed his pull completely, was hit on the shoudler, then the helmet, the ball finally plopping on to the wicket

DJ Hussey b Finn 13 (37m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.82

Australia 132/4   MJ Clarke 16* (29b 2x4)   ST Finn 6.1-0-29-2

32.5

Bresnan to Smith, OUT, length ball, in the corridor and Smith fences weakly at it, nicking through to the keeper! That won't convince the doubters, pushing away from his body, perhaps trying to guide the ball to third man ... but failing

SPD Smith c †Kieswetter b Bresnan 8 (16m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 61.53

Australia 147/5   MJ Clarke 23* (38b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 6.5-0-30-1

41.5

Swann to Wade, OUT, played into the leg side, oh and there's a huge mix up and Wade is run out! Clarke wanted the run, Wade did not but eventually had to go to save his skipper and was easily run out at the non-striker's end, disaster for Australia

MS Wade run out 27 (36m 32b 1x4 1x6) SR: 84.37

Australia 204/6   MJ Clarke 52* (60b 5x4 1x6)   GP Swann 8.5-0-40-0

42.6

Bresnan to Clarke, OUT, got him this time! A similar delivery to earlier in the over but this is much straight and up goes the finger! Bang in front this is, he swings across it and caught plumb in front, game over now is it?

MJ Clarke lbw b Bresnan 61 (104m 67b 6x4 1x6) SR: 91.04

Australia 214/7   B Lee 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 8-0-40-2

45.1

Broad to McKay, OUT, down the pitch, straight up and caught by Kieswetter. McKay went for a leg side heave to a back of a length ball that he tried to step down the track to but it just went up and the keeper went to his left to take it with both hands easily

CJ McKay c †Kieswetter b Broad 2 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 226/8   B Lee 9* (7b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 8.1-0-35-1

45.6

Broad to Cummins, OUT, gone! It looked stone dead, missed a full ball that beat the inside edge, he refers it but this is just out and indeed Hawk Eye confirms as such, that was a ridiculous referral! Right in front on the back pad, if that ain't out, nowt is

PJ Cummins lbw b Broad 4 (3m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 231/9   B Lee 10* (8b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 9-0-40-2
