Australia won by 39 runs
Played at Lord's, London
6 September 2009 (50-over match)

Bresnan to Watson, OUT, here's the breakthrough, and you have to say that was coming. Full again, a big mow from Watson, and Wright at short cover has a catch for the cameras as he goes airborne to take a comfortable two-handed pluck.

SR Watson c Wright b Bresnan 34 (62m 49b 4x4 0x6) SR: 69.38

Australia 62/1   TD Paine 25* (40b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 3.5-0-17-1

Wright to Paine, OUT, and that's the second wicket! More frustration from Australia, a touch short but Paine got completely underneath an attempted flick, and scooped a steepler to Eoin Morgan on the deep midwicket fence. A well-judged take, and England are in business

TD Paine c Morgan b Wright 26 (68m 44b 2x4 0x6) SR: 59.09

Australia 64/2   CL White 1* (3b)   LJ Wright 2-0-5-1

Wright to Clarke, OUT, bouncer, and Clarke is utterly nailed by that one. A loose swish of the blade, a thin edge, and an easy catch for Prior. Excellent change of approach from Wright, and he's made a vital breakthrough

MJ Clarke c †Prior b Wright 4 (12m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Australia 73/3   CL White 6* (11b 1x4)   LJ Wright 3.1-0-10-2

Bopara to White, OUT, Got 'im! First ball, outside off, a decent line and length, and White is drawn into an attempted glide to third man. But his edge is just too thin, and Prior gathers well behind the stumps

CL White c †Prior b Bopara 42 (70m 66b 5x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Australia 142/4   CJ Ferguson 29* (29b 3x4)   RS Bopara 0.1-0-0-1

Swann to Hussey, OUT, bowled him! Fine ball but average shot. Hussey's off stump has been a target all summer, and that one just tweaked enough to peg it back. He was playing all down the wrong line there

MEK Hussey b Swann 8 (8m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Australia 155/5   CJ Ferguson 34* (38b 3x4)   GP Swann 5-0-18-1

Swann to Hopes, OUT, and after a long delay, Gould raises his finger. Quicker ball, he went for a sweep but was trapped dead in front of middle

JR Hopes lbw b Swann 11 (17m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.89

Australia 179/6   CJ Ferguson 47* (50b 4x4)   GP Swann 7.1-0-27-2

Anderson to Ferguson, OUT, too straight for that leg-side flip! Anderson fires it in straight; Ferguson tries to whack him over the leg side and is cleaned up

CJ Ferguson b Anderson 55 (95m 58b 5x4 0x6) SR: 94.82

Australia 201/7   MG Johnson 12* (7b 1x4)   JM Anderson 6.4-0-40-1

Sidebottom to Lee, OUT, smashed to Shah at extra cover who didn't need to move. No more need be said

B Lee c Shah b Sidebottom 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 208/8   MG Johnson 19* (10b 2x4)   RJ Sidebottom 6.4-0-26-1
