NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 4th ODI

England v Australia

England won by 8 wickets (with 13 balls remaining)

5.1

Finn to Warner, OUT, a huge appeal for lbw but the umpire is unmoved. England have asked for a review. The ball was full and straight. Warner should have been playing forward but he wasn't. He hasn't played forward to anything today. He tried to close the face of the bat this time and play towards square, he missed and was struck plumb in front. That ball pitched on leg and middle and was going to hit middle. Plumb.

DA Warner lbw b Finn 2 (21m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 10.52

Australia 6/1   SR Watson 4* (12b)   ST Finn 2.1-1-2-1

5.2

Finn to Forrest, OUT, and he's now the old batsman. That looks plumb. Finn is keeping the ball very full, and this time he moves it back into the right-hander. Forrest prodded from his crease and was smacked flush on the back pad. He has a quick word with Watson, presumably about a review, and then marches right off. That ball was smashing into off and middle.

PJ Forrest lbw b Finn 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 6/2   SR Watson 4* (12b)   ST Finn 2.2-1-2-2

18.3

Bresnan to Watson, OUT, bowled him! Watson tried to steer towards third man but the ball was too full and jagged back sharply into the right-hander. He was cramped for room and ended up bottom edging on to middle stump

SR Watson b Bresnan 28 (85m 54b 2x4 1x6) SR: 51.85

Australia 57/3   MJ Clarke 26* (38b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 3.3-0-12-1

21.4

Bopara to Bailey, OUT, that is a terrific ball and it's bowled Bailey! Bopara pitched the ball on a good length around middle stump and got it to straighten and leave the right-hander just enough to beat the outside edge of Bailey's forward push and clip the top of off stump. McGrath would have approved of that one

GJ Bailey b Bopara 9 (12m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Australia 68/4   MJ Clarke 28* (47b 3x4)   RS Bopara 1.4-0-3-1

32.2

Finn to Clarke, OUT, cleaned him up now though and this is a cracker, a length ball seams back and takes the off and middle stumps. It's another great length, wasn't right up there to drive and Clarke got in a bad position, missed by a long way and his off stump ended up on the floor

MJ Clarke b Finn 43 (119m 85b 4x4 0x6) SR: 50.58

Australia 96/5   DJ Hussey 11* (26b 1x4)   ST Finn 6.2-2-15-3

32.3

Finn to Wade, OUT, gone first ball again! And what a catch! Craig Kieswetter has flung himself to his right and taken a blinder on the juggle. It is a super delivery, back of length that zipped through and took an inside edge, Kieswetter took off, parried with the first attempted and then grabbed it as he fell to the ground

MS Wade c †Kieswetter b Finn 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 96/6   DJ Hussey 11* (26b 1x4)   ST Finn 6.3-2-15-4

45.2

Anderson to Lee, OUT, but this time finds the fielder, holing out to long on, was the necessary? It was mistimed and Broad came in to take a comfortable catch. Having just taken a six was another big heave required? Five singles, 11 off the over would do. After a lovely little innings that was a poor way to go really

B Lee c Broad b Anderson 27 (52m 41b 2x4 1x6) SR: 65.85

Australia 166/7   DJ Hussey 51* (62b 6x4)   JM Anderson 8.2-3-25-1

47.3

Anderson to McKay, OUT, smashed up in the air, so high up, miles up and well taken by Bresnan at mid off, fine take diving backwards in the the end, McKay tried to go down the ground with a drive but simply went high and nowhere near long enough

CJ McKay c Bresnan b Anderson 6 (10m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 174/8   DJ Hussey 52* (64b 6x4)   JM Anderson 9.3-3-31-2

49.3

Bresnan to Hussey, OUT, caught on the boundary and Hussey falls trying to find the rope again, slugging a length ball towards long off, Anderson comes round and claims the comfortable chance

DJ Hussey c Anderson b Bresnan 70 (120m 73b 9x4 0x6) SR: 95.89

Australia 194/9   JL Pattinson 2* (3b)   TT Bresnan 8.3-0-40-2
