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

Watson to Cook, OUT, he's done it, Watson makes the breakthrough, drawing Cook into a drive to be caught behind! Cook will feel he should have pinged that through the covers, it was a little wide, on a good length but they've not had any problems hitting on the up this morning - just a thin snick of bat and Cook trudges off having made another solid start but failed to go on

AN Cook c †Wade b Watson 30 (55m 42b 3x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

England 57/1   IR Bell 23* (29b 3x4)   SR Watson 1.4-0-9-1

Starc to Trott, OUT, there's the breakthrough for Australia...Trott chases a wide ball outside off and gets a thin edge through to Wade

IJL Trott c †Wade b Starc 43 (99m 56b 1x4 0x6) SR: 76.78

England 168/2   IR Bell 83* (105b 7x4)   MA Starc 6.4-0-41-1

Faulkner to Bell, OUT, full and straight, Bell gets cleaned up so he won't have a hometown hundred...Bell suggests the ball didn't bounce as he expected, but I just think he missed a straight one

IR Bell b Faulkner 91 (174m 115b 7x4 0x6) SR: 79.13

England 189/3   JE Root 12* (14b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 4.4-0-21-1

McKay to Root, OUT, back to back wickets, Root clips a delivery from off stump straight to midwicket...Australia now making some significant inroads

JE Root c Bailey b McKay 12 (23m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.58

England 189/4   EJG Morgan 0* (2b)   CJ McKay 6.3-0-24-1

McKay to Morgan, OUT, shuffles across and bowled round his legs! McKay suckers him, maybe took the pace off a touch, Morgan going right across and exposing middle and leg stump, tried to wristily flick the ball over backward square leg, missed and the ball hit

EJG Morgan b McKay 8 (23m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 212/5   RS Bopara 13* (16b 1x4)   CJ McKay 8.5-0-35-2

Faulkner to Buttler, OUT, and Buttler's gone second ball, edging on to his stumps! Good areas from Faulkner, not quite wide or full enough for the drive and Buttler played away from his body, not much footwork, the ball cannoning back into his standing leg and then on to middle stump - the gunpowder has exploded in England's face!

JC Buttler b Faulkner 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 213/6   RS Bopara 13* (16b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 7.1-0-31-2
