NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 4th ODI

England v Australia

Australia won by 7 wickets (with 38 balls remaining)

4.5

Lee to Denly, OUT, gone! Lee makes the breakthrough and Denly departs to a slightly tame nudge outside off, there's a hint of movement away and his edge is snaffled by White at first slip

JL Denly c White b Lee 11 (20m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.70

England 29/1   AJ Strauss 16* (13b 3x4)   B Lee 2.5-0-12-1

18.3

Hauritz to Bopara, OUT, Hauritz gets rid of Bopara! Spinning in a fraction, Bopara looks to sweep and is struck in line with off stump, Nigel Llong sends him on his way

RS Bopara lbw b Hauritz 26 (61m 36b 3x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

England 96/2   AJ Strauss 56* (60b 8x4)   NM Hauritz 2.3-0-7-1

24.4

Hauritz to Strauss, OUT, Strauss goes for 63! He's gone for a slightly premeditated slog over midwicket, but the ball turns a touch and skies off his top edge, Bracken at short third man takes a comfortable chance

AJ Strauss c Bracken b Hauritz 63 (104m 75b 8x4 0x6) SR: 84.00

England 111/3   MJ Prior 8* (22b)   NM Hauritz 5.4-0-12-2

32.1

Lee to Prior, OUT, Lee strikes first ball! That's a perfect, fast yorker that angles in and Prior, used to the spin, doesn't get the bat down in time and loses his middle stump

MJ Prior b Lee 29 (43m 45b 2x4 0x6) SR: 64.44

England 146/4   OA Shah 11* (23b)   B Lee 5.1-0-25-2

39.4

Bracken to Morgan, 1 wide, OUT, wonderful stumping! Superb work from Paine, up to the stumps to Bracken. It's a wide down leg side, Morgan looks to flick and misses the ball, and lifts his foot in the process. Paine collects and whips the bails off very smartly. Morgan's foot is on the line, and the third umpire gives that out.

EJG Morgan st †Paine b Bracken 13 (33m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 174/5   OA Shah 25* (41b 1x4)   NW Bracken 7.3-0-38-1

43.1

Lee to Wright, OUT, Another terrific yorker! Lee gets through Wright with a fast, full ball that angles in, beats the outside of the bat and slams into Wright's off stump

LJ Wright b Lee 12 (15m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 109.09

England 200/6   OA Shah 39* (52b 3x4)   B Lee 7.1-1-36-3

43.3

Lee to Broad, OUT, Lee gets another! This one takes Broad's leg stump, it was fast and full, Broad was backing away and just didn't get bat on ball.

SCJ Broad b Lee 2 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

England 202/7   OA Shah 39* (52b 3x4)   B Lee 7.3-1-38-4

44.1

Watson to Shah, OUT, is this out? The umpires converse and decide that, yes, that was a legal ball. They were checking on the height, it was a full toss around waist height, Shah pulled and mistimed, finding Ferguson at midwicket

OA Shah c Ferguson b Watson 39 (89m 53b 3x4 0x6) SR: 73.58

England 206/8   AU Rashid 4* (3b 1x4)   SR Watson 7.1-0-41-1

45.3

Lee to Rashid, OUT, another yorker and another wicket for Lee! Superb bowling, fast, straight and simply too good for England's lower order. Rashid was backing away a touch to try and work it through off, but it's dead straight and crashes into middle stump

AU Rashid b Lee 4 (6m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

England 212/9   TT Bresnan 6* (6b)   B Lee 8.3-1-43-5

46.3

Johnson to Sidebottom, OUT, Johnson finishes the innings! Sidebottom misses a straight one and Johnson's too fast, it crashes into middle and leg

RJ Sidebottom b Johnson 2 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 220/10   TT Bresnan 11* (9b 1x4)   MG Johnson 8.3-0-42-1
