ICC Champions Trophy, 3rd Match, Group A: England v Australia at Birmingham, Jun 8, 2013
ICC Champions Trophy - 3rd match, Group A
England won by 48 runs
8 June 2013 (50-over match)

Broad to Warner, OUT, fuller and driven at, edged to the keeper where Jos Buttler takes a fine catch to his left, no slip in place so that was an excellent grab diving with two hands. England have earned the wicket with their excellent start, a bit of width offered and Warner couldn't resist, flashing the hands at it without moving his feet and got a big nick that Buttler held superbly

DA Warner c †Buttler b Broad 9 (23m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Australia 17/1   SR Watson 7* (14b)   SCJ Broad 2.5-0-9-1

Bresnan to Watson, OUT, full ball on the stumps, huge appeal for lbw, the ball cannons to gully where Cook takes the catch, either way Watson's out and he's caught, having got a thin edge onto the front pad that looped up to Cook. The delivery tailed in a little and Watson got outside the line and overbalanced

SR Watson c Cook b Bresnan 24 (63m 40b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Australia 47/2   PJ Hughes 12* (26b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 2.3-0-9-1

Root to Hughes, OUT, skids on, Hughes plays an ugly swipe across the line and is hit in front - Dharmasena gives it! That was a horrible shot from Hughes, he was getting tied down by Root's gentle offies, he tried to pull the ball off a length and was struck in front of middle and leg; the question was whether it would clip leg but Dharmasena was happy enough and Hughes decides against reviewing

PJ Hughes lbw b Root 30 (78m 55b 3x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 94/3   GJ Bailey 27* (38b 1x4)   JE Root 3.4-0-14-1

Bresnan to Voges, OUT, Voges swings, misses and is bowled, Bresnan strikes for England! Looked like a little offcutter, rolling his fingers over the ball and it jinked back just enough off the pitch as Voges tried to hit down the ground, beat the bat on the inside and clattered into the top of middle and off stump

AC Voges b Bresnan 15 (27m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 65.21

Australia 127/4   GJ Bailey 45* (57b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 5.4-1-19-2

Anderson to Marsh, OUT, back of a length and pushed off the back foot straight to point and Anderson becomes the highest wicket-taker in one-day cricket for England. A loose stroke from Marsh outside off, it went at a good catchable height, very quickly but straight to Morgan who clung on at chest height with two hands, a sharp grab

MR Marsh c Morgan b Anderson 5 (13m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Australia 134/5   GJ Bailey 47* (60b 2x4)   JM Anderson 7.1-0-19-1

Anderson to Wade, OUT, full and sliding past the outside edge, taken by the keeper and given out! Umpire Dharmasena nodded his head for the edge, they're going to check whether it carried to Buttler. There was no hesitation from Buttler who threw it up straight away, Hot Spot confirms a thin edge too, there was a nervy look behind by Wade as it went past the bat, definitely out, no idea why Wade his hanging around for, he's gone

MS Wade c †Buttler b Anderson 1 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Australia 136/6   GJ Bailey 48* (61b 2x4)   JM Anderson 8-0-21-2

Tredwell to Bailey, OUT, around the wicket again, a few steps down the track, tries to take on long on but doesn't get anywhere near the proper connection and Joe Root takes the catch a very easy chance going a few yards to his left. It was a weak shot from Bailey and looped very comfortably to the fielder, Australia's last hope, if there was still hope, gone

GJ Bailey c Root b Tredwell 55 (106m 69b 2x4 0x6) SR: 79.71

Australia 151/7   JP Faulkner 7* (11b)   JC Tredwell 7.1-1-33-1

Bopara to Johnson, OUT, full toss comes off high on the bat and loops to point. Oh dear Mitchell, a waist-high full toss, he's tried to slug it over the off side but is too late on the stroke and chipped up an easy catch to Morgan, they umpires had a quick check for the height of the delivery but concurred that it was fine

MG Johnson c Morgan b Bopara 8 (18m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Australia 175/8   JP Faulkner 22* (22b 1x6)   RS Bopara 4.4-0-30-1

Anderson to Starc, OUT, full and straight and Starc misses trying to drive down the ground middle stump out of the ground, comprehensively cleaned up, representative of this innings perhaps? Little bit of inswing from Anderson and Starc also beaten by the pace, his feet went nowhere and he was castled

MA Starc b Anderson 5 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Australia 190/9   JP Faulkner 32* (27b 2x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 8.5-0-27-3
