A look at the statistical highlights of the Australia-England clash at Jaipur
October 21, 2006
England's second successive defeat in the Champions Trophy places them on the brink of elimination - their only hope of making further progress is if they beat West Indies by a convincing margin and if India win both their remaining matches. Three teams would then have one win each, and their net run rates will decide which of them will progress to the semi-final. Cricinfo looks at some significant numbers from the match at Jaipur.
18 - The number of defeats for England in their last 25 ODIs
8 for 60 - England's collapse in the second half of their innings - after 25 overs they were 109 for 2
3 - The number of boundaries scored by England's last nine batsmen. Their openers hit 13 fours
18.27 - Shane Watson's bowling average in his last 14 ODIs. He has taken 26 wickets in these games
32 - Kevin Pietersen's batting average in ODIs against Australia. Against other teams he averages 59.25
5.97 - Steve Harmison's economy rate in his last eight ODIs (423 runs in 70.5 overs)
65.21 - Birthday-boy Damien Martyn's ODI average against England. In 25 matches against them, he has nine fifty-plus scores
37.94 - Michael Hussey's scoring rate in his unbeaten 32 off 85 balls. It was his slowest ODI knock among innings in which he has faced at least 50 balls, beating his 36 not out off 61 balls against Bangladesh at Chittagong earlier this year.
After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.

The new stand-in captain has the makings of a long-term leader, given his ability to stay ahead of the game
Turning your back on a system that the whole cricketing world wants a discussion on, refusing to discuss it because it is not 100%, is not good enough
The failed gamble of handing Karn Sharma a Test debut despite him having a moderate first-class record means India have to rethink who their spinner will be
After a long time we have seen an Indian team and captain enjoy the challenge of trying to overcome stronger opposition in an overseas Test
