  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Hopes b Siddle 14 9 10 1 1 140.00
1.6 brilliant catch by Hopes! Strauss had timed it well, it was bowled full on leg stump, he clipped it elegantly but uppishly, Hopes threw himself to his left at square leg and plucked it inches from the ground 15/1
View dismissal JL Denly c †Paine b Siddle 36 85 44 5 0 81.81
17.2 got him! Short of a length outside off and gets it to move away, Denly chases it, trying to get it past point but gets a thick edge and Paine again does a good job stretching full length to his right and taking a smart catch 91/4
View dismissal OA Shah c †Paine b Lee 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
2.4 gone! Short on leg stump, Shah walks across to tickle it fine, gets a faint touch and it goes through to Paine, two down are England and they've been hit early, Paine took a good catch diving well to his left 16/2
View dismissal PD Collingwood c †Paine b Johnson 34 41 30 5 1 113.33
11.2 got him, well taken by Paine! Collingwood was tempted to pull that , short on middle, shuffled and tried to pull it through square leg, the extra bounce did the trick there for Johnson and so did the pace, a thin touch to the glove and Paine snapped it one-handed timing his leap to perfection 71/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †Paine b Watson 9 44 27 0 0 33.33
20.2 Morgan's gone! Short outside off, just a fraction outside the off stump, goes for the cut, gets a thin edge straight to the keeper, perhaps too close to play that shot but he was struggling to get the runs 101/6
View dismissal SM Davies b Watson 5 7 4 0 0 125.00
18.5 Davies sent back early on his debut, nipped back in this time, short of a good length outside off, tried to defend it off the back foot, it moved in off the pitch just a hint, took the inside edge and knocked back the off stump 100/5
View dismissal LJ Wright c †Paine b Siddle 48 86 68 2 2 70.58
39.6 Paine pouches his fifth victim, soft dismissal in the end, he chases a full and wide delivery and gets a thick outside edge to Paine, Wright should be happy with his efforts for getting England this far 208/7
View dismissal TT Bresnan b Lee 80 109 76 11 0 105.26
46.2 timber! Bresnan backs away to crash that over the on side but Lee fires in a yorker and flattens the middle stump, that ends Bresnan's resistance, will it be a match-winning knock? Let's wait and see 251/9
View dismissal GP Swann run out (Hauritz/†Paine) 18 23 15 2 0 120.00
45.1 from Watson, excellent work by the Australians, Swann reaches out and angles the ball down to third man, Swann wants the second, he's always struggling but fails to time his dive, the throw from Hauritz is flat and quick and Paine whips off the bails, Bowden doesn't need the replay 245/8
JM Anderson not out 5 14 9 0 0 55.55
View dismissal G Onions run out (Ferguson/†Paine) 1 7 2 0 0 50.00
47.4 Watson to Anderson, confusion galore! Seemed like a sports blooper, Anderson goes right back and across and nearly trods onto his stumps as he works it to midwicket, first run comfortably taken but there's confusion about the second, Anderson wants it, Onions doesn't, Onions has no option but to leave his crease but he turns back and it's too late as Paine collects the throw from Ferguson whips off the bails 257/10
