NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 5th ODI

England v Australia

Australia won by 4 wickets (with 10 balls remaining)

8.6

Bresnan to Paine, OUT, soft dismissal in the end, we've seen quite a few today, Bresnan digs it in quite short and gets it to come in with the angle, Paine fails to control the pull and ends up getting a top edge lobs to Rashid at short fine leg

TD Paine c Rashid b Bresnan 16 (37m 29b 3x4 0x6) SR: 55.17

Australia 45/1   SR Watson 29* (25b 5x4)   TT Bresnan 1-0-4-1

14.5

Bresnan to Watson, OUT, that's a poor shot, Bresnan bangs it in short of a length and gets it to hurry on Watson, he miscues the pull and the ball lands down Mascarenhas' throat at mid-on as he pedals backwards

SR Watson c Mascarenhas b Bresnan 36 (62m 34b 5x4 0x6) SR: 105.88

Australia 76/2   RT Ponting 24* (26b 3x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 3.5-0-21-2

36.3

Rashid to Clarke, OUT, Clarke gives it away, he seizes on a shortish delivery down the leg side from round the wicket, he bends down and pulls but there isn't enough elevation to beat Shah at deep square leg

MJ Clarke c Shah b Rashid 52 (87m 64b 5x4 0x6) SR: 81.25

Australia 209/3   RT Ponting 100* (92b 10x4 3x6)   AU Rashid 5.3-0-43-1

39.3

Mascarenhas to Hussey, OUT, another give-away and Hussey will be rather peeved with that shot, he checks his drive and ends up miscuing it tamely towards Sidebottom who takes the sitter at mid-off, Hussey was just too early on the shot

MEK Hussey c Sidebottom b Mascarenhas 6 (8m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 226/4   RT Ponting 111* (101b 11x4 3x6)   AD Mascarenhas 9.3-0-45-1

43.3

Broad to Ferguson, OUT, that looked plumb, Ferguson shuffles across his stumps to work him across the line, he's trapped right in front of middle and leg, now is there a twist here?

CJ Ferguson lbw b Broad 17 (15m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 94.44

Australia 255/5   RT Ponting 122* (107b 13x4 3x6)   SCJ Broad 7.3-0-45-1

43.6

Broad to Ponting, OUT, the extra delivery works in England's favour! Ponting tries to take him downtown, lofts from the crease and Shah runs across from long-off and takes it easily

RT Ponting c Shah b Broad 126 (151m 109b 14x4 3x6) SR: 115.59

Australia 261/6   CL White 1* (1b)   SCJ Broad 8-0-51-2
