NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 6th ODI

England v Australia

Australia won by 111 runs

4.3

Anderson to Watson, OUT, got him! Chopped it on! Short and wide, went for the cut, the shot was on but a bit of inward movement did him in ultimately, a thick inside edge straight onto middle and off to give England their first breakthrough

SR Watson b Anderson 4 (20m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Australia 19/1   TD Paine 9* (18b 1x4)   JM Anderson 2.3-0-9-1

8.6

Anderson to Ponting, OUT, gone! A hint of frustration as he had middled the last few balls but didn't find the gap, Anderson had set it up, hurled it short on middle, Ponting pulled it away disdainfully but straight into the palms of Sidebottom positioned perfectly at fine leg, two down

RT Ponting c Sidebottom b Anderson 6 (18m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Australia 40/2   TD Paine 19* (31b 3x4)   JM Anderson 5-0-16-2

39.2

Swann to Hussey, OUT, gone! Flatter outside off, takes it on the half-volley and tries to slog-sweep it over deep midwicket but doesn't get hold of it, Joe Denly watches it comfortably into his hands to give England a much-needed wicket

MEK Hussey c Denly b Swann 65 (119m 69b 3x4 2x6) SR: 94.20

Australia 203/3   TD Paine 110* (144b 14x4 1x6)   GP Swann 8.2-0-43-1

40.3

Mascarenhas to Paine, OUT, excellent catch by Prior! England are fighting back, the scoring had slowed down and Paine was getting restless, short outside off, goes for the slog over midwicket, gets a thin inside edge and Prior snaps it sharply behind the wicket

TD Paine c †Prior b Mascarenhas 111 (168m 148b 14x4 1x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 206/4   CJ Ferguson 2* (3b)   AD Mascarenhas 8.3-0-39-1

43.1

Anderson to Ferguson, OUT, got him! Swinging it back in, lands on the off and nips back and Ferguson was surprised by the movement, tried to fend it away into the leg side, got an inside edge onto the pads and then onto the stumps, timely wicket for England

CJ Ferguson b Anderson 6 (12m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 220/5   CL White 8* (10b 1x4)   JM Anderson 7.1-0-25-3

47.4

Anderson to White, OUT, But he contains the damage somewhat with a wicket! Not the best of deliveries, though, another full toss and White miscues the pull, the shot was on but it caught the top edge and Denly took a simple catch at extra cover

CL White c Denly b Anderson 35 (31m 23b 5x4 1x6) SR: 152.17

Australia 273/6   JR Hopes 26* (14b 5x4)   JM Anderson 9.4-0-54-4

48.4

Bresnan to Hopes, 1 run, OUT, run out, it's been Anderson's day in the field, in the blockhole, dug out towards long-on, they try to come back for the second but Anderson hurls in a strong throw, what's more it's accurate, knocking out the bails at the non-striker's end to find Lee short of his ground

B Lee run out 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 281/7   JR Hopes 33* (19b 6x4)   TT Bresnan 8.4-0-58-0

49.3

Sidebottom to Hopes, OUT, but he's gone this time! Had made too much room and Sidebottom threw in a low full toss outside off, Hopes had to reach for it and ended up chipping in straight to Strauss at extra cover

JR Hopes c Strauss b Sidebottom 38 (29m 22b 7x4 0x6) SR: 172.72

Australia 288/8   NM Hauritz 1* (2b)   RJ Sidebottom 8.3-0-57-1
