ICC Champions Trophy - 3rd match, Group A
England won by 48 runs
8 June 2013 (50-over match)

Broad to Warner, FOUR, just back of a length and tucked away past square leg, goodness that is well timed and beats Trott at long leg, seemed like just a nudge but he flicked it away with enough power

Australia 13/0   DA Warner 7* (10b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1.1-0-7-0

Broad to Watson, FOUR, leading edge trying to play to leg and gets an edge to slip where Cook dives to his left and can't quite hang on, would have been a blinding catch but a moment of luck for Watson trying to flick to leg

Australia 24/1   SR Watson 14* (24b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 3.4-1-13-1

Broad to Hughes, FOUR, length ball wide enough of off stump, driven nicely and gets it through cover point, lovely timing, foot movement right to the ball, excellent shot

Australia 29/1   PJ Hughes 4* (2b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 4-1-18-1

Bresnan to Hughes, FOUR, overpitched outside off and driven past extra cover, timed supremely well, that was a fine stroke, hands right out to the ball with a good stride down the wicket

Australia 42/1   PJ Hughes 10* (12b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 0.3-0-7-0

Bopara to Bailey, FOUR, drops short again and Bailey times this one better, swivel-pulling hard and flat through square, nearly taking a chunk out of the umpire in the process

Australia 78/2   GJ Bailey 20* (28b 1x4)   RS Bopara 1.2-0-10-0

Bopara to Hughes, FOUR, easy paced half-volley on middle stump and Hughes latches on to it quickly to loft towards long-on for a one-bounce four

Australia 83/2   PJ Hughes 26* (46b 3x4)   RS Bopara 1.4-0-15-0

Tredwell to Bailey, FOUR, plays the reverse sweep again and times this one really well, the bat coming down in a hard arc and pinging the ball past short third man and away for four

Australia 113/3   GJ Bailey 41* (50b 2x4)   JC Tredwell 4.4-1-16-0

Tredwell to Voges, FOUR, Voges follows his captain's lead, reversing the hands and swiping the ball hard past the man on the edge of the ring for another boundary to third man

Australia 120/3   AC Voges 11* (17b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 5.1-1-22-0

Bresnan to Marsh, FOUR, short and down the leg side - hello, Mitchell Marsh, he rocks back cobra-fast and cracks a pull shot to the deep backward square boundary

Australia 133/4   MR Marsh 4* (9b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 6.4-1-24-2

Bopara to Faulkner, FOUR, another slower ball, waited for and cut hard backward of point, well played that and gets it down to third man rope

Australia 179/8   JP Faulkner 26* (24b 1x4 1x6)   RS Bopara 5-0-34-1

Anderson to Faulkner, FOUR, full and on leg stump, clipped down very fine on the leg side

Australia 189/8   JP Faulkner 31* (26b 2x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 8.2-0-26-2

Broad to Faulkner, FOUR, too straight and clipped past the short long leg, a very rare loose delivery

Australia 205/9   JP Faulkner 41* (34b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 9.3-2-33-1

Bresnan to Faulkner, (no ball) FOUR, looked very high was it a beamer? It was, an edged down very fine past the keeper too

Australia 213/9   JP Faulkner 47* (37b 4x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 9-1-37-2

Bresnan to Faulkner, FOUR, steps to leg and slaps it past extra-cover, lovely stroke and Faulkner goes to 50, at least he's had a good day

Australia 217/9   JP Faulkner 51* (38b 5x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 9.1-1-41-2
