England v Australia

England won by 197 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

73.1

Watson to Trott, no run, on line straight away, Trott pushes to mid-on

73.2

Watson to Trott, FOUR, easy runs there for Trott, he gets on on his pads and flicks it forward of square leg for a boundary. Well, when I say easy runs, you've still got to put the bad balls away

73.3

Watson to Trott, no run, defended away safely this time

73.4

Watson to Trott, 1 run, short ball, but at Watson's pace it's no threat and Trott pulls to deep midwicket

73.5

Watson to Broad, 1 run, pushed away towards point for a single

73.6

Watson to Trott, 1 leg bye, big shout, big lbw shout! Angled in and Trott tries to work that to leg, it's hit him in line with middle and leg, Asad Rauf says not out! That looked a very, very good appeal.

England 268/6   SR Watson 1-0-6-0

75.1

Watson to Broad, no run, punched away defensively

75.2

Watson to Broad, FOUR, and this one beats Haddin! Angled in and Broad must've got a thin inside edge on that, it's sailed past Haddin's right hand and away for four

75.3

Watson to Broad, no run, bangs it in towards the hips, Broad can't get bat on it

75.4

Watson to Broad, 1 run, flicked away behind square

75.5

Watson to Swann, FOUR, down leg side, bad ball and Swann glances it away for a boundary

75.6

Watson to Swann, no run, pushed away defensively

England 277/7   SR Watson 2-0-15-0

77.1

Watson to Swann, 1 run, angled in to Swann, who clips it through midwicket

77.2

Watson to Broad, no run, 89mph or 144kph, Watson is getting some decent pace here, Broad punches away to cover

77.3

Watson to Broad, FOUR, that's a great shot! Short ball and Broad almost nonchalantly pulls that forward of midwicket, it's sailed almost over mid-on and raced away to the boundary. What an attractive shot

77.4

Watson to Broad, no run, fullish outside off, left alone

77.5

Watson to Broad, no run, Broad drives off the back foot, finds the man at gully

77.6

Watson to Broad, no run, pushed away to cover

England 282/7   SR Watson 3-0-20-0

79.1

Watson to Swann, 1 run, worked away off the hips for a run to midwicket

79.2

Watson to Broad, 4 byes, beats the outside edge, and that's four byes, Watson has bowled pretty well without luck, this one swings late after it passes Broad and Haddin can't glove it

79.3

Watson to Broad, no run, driven to mid-off

79.4

Watson to Broad, no run, driven back towards the bowler

79.5

Watson to Broad, no run, angled in from around the wicket, Broad punches to off

79.6

Watson to Broad, no run, almost a wicket! Almost. Broad drives wide outside off, gets a thick edge and it's fallen just short of Ponting at second slip. So close.

England 288/7   SR Watson 4-0-21-0

81.1

Watson to Swann, no run, full and straight, nudged to leg

81.2

Watson to Swann, 1 run, squeezed out on the front foot

81.3

Watson to Broad, no run, speared into his pads. Digs it out

81.4

Watson to Broad, no run, better line on the off stump, and Broad's right behind it

81.5

Watson to Broad, no run, Broad steps back and across, as he has done for much of his innings today - uncharacteristically nervous-looking defence. Solid, though.

81.6

Watson to Broad, FOUR, flashed and edged and wide of the slips for four! Not in control of that, by any stretch of the imagination - what a ridiculous phrase that is. Watson's fairly fuming at Broad there

England 294/7   SR Watson 5-0-26-0
