NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 3rd ODI

England v Australia

Australia won by 6 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

7.5

Bracken to Bopara, OUT, brilliantly caught by Hopes! Bopara went for another impetuous crack over the top but got a leading, spiralling edge over the bowlers head and Hopes ran back a good eight or nine metres, taking the ball from over his head and diving in the process

RS Bopara c Hopes b Bracken 10 (33m 17b 0x4 1x6) SR: 58.82

England 41/1   AJ Strauss 30* (31b 5x4)   NW Bracken 3.5-0-12-1

8.4

Johnson to Prior, OUT, short, he goes on the pull and pulls it straight to square leg! Johnson strikes! Another good, low catch by James Hopes and England's bright start has disappeared

MJ Prior c Hopes b Johnson 0 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 41/2   AJ Strauss 30* (32b 5x4)   MG Johnson 0.4-0-0-1

14.5

Johnson to Shah, OUT, lbw! Shah moves across his stumps and tries to whip across the line through midwicket, he misses and gets hit on the pad, the umpire takes a good look and eventually raises the finger, replays show that the ball may have been missing off stump, Shah's a bit unlucky there, but it looks so close when he moves across his stumps like that

OA Shah lbw b Johnson 8 (24m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.10

England 62/3   AJ Strauss 41* (50b 6x4)   MG Johnson 3.5-1-15-2

22.3

Hauritz to Strauss, OUT, goddim! Down the pitch by Strauss, flicking it and timing it beautifully but it just carried to Michael Clarke, diving forward at short midwicket

AJ Strauss c Clarke b Hauritz 63 (97m 72b 7x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

England 98/4   PD Collingwood 13* (24b)   NM Hauritz 2.3-0-9-1

31.4

Watson to Collingwood, OUT, caught, Collingwood tries to hit down the ground but doesn't get enough elevation, he hits it straight to mid-on

PD Collingwood c Bracken b Watson 28 (64m 52b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.84

England 132/5   EJG Morgan 19* (27b 1x4)   SR Watson 1.4-0-6-1

35.4

Hopes to Wright, OUT, there you go! Wright tries to blast the ball through cover but hits it hard and straight to Voges who takes a sharp low catch, England now don't have two specialist batsmen to utilise the final Powerplay

LJ Wright c sub (AC Voges) b Hopes 9 (18m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

England 147/6   EJG Morgan 24* (37b 1x4)   JR Hopes 5.4-0-24-1

42.3

Lee to Morgan, OUT, full toss, dug out straight to mid-off. And that's out! The crowd are practically silent, unable to believe just how limp that dismissal was

EJG Morgan c Johnson b Lee 43 (83m 57b 1x4 1x6) SR: 75.43

England 183/7   TT Bresnan 15* (22b 1x4)   B Lee 6.3-1-44-1

43.3

Watson to Swann, OUT, that's so out. Swung in late on middle stump as Swann played around it, and that's hitting middle stump halfway up

GP Swann lbw b Watson 3 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 188/8   TT Bresnan 17* (25b 1x4)   SR Watson 4.3-0-11-2

49.6

Watson to Sidebottom, OUT, speared into his legs, Sidebottom tries to lift him for six but long-off holds a clean and comfortable catch at head height

RJ Sidebottom c White b Watson 24 (27m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

England 228/9   TT Bresnan 31* (37b 3x4)   SR Watson 8-0-36-3
