    35.2 picks out deep midwicket! Stands still this time, opts for the leg side, heaves across the line and clubs it down the throat of Bairstow 196/4
    1.5 got him! The short ball gets Warner...this is a beauty from Wood. Short of a length at 142kph/88mph, climbs sharply, Warner taken by surprise, and takes the splice of the bat, loops into the slips where second gets around for a simple catch. The impact of pace 10/1
    10.5 he's got Smith! What a strike for Rashid. Gets it outside off, just a hint of turn, and a thin nick to Buttler. He actually played outside this, away from his body, and got an inside edge. Not sure Buttler took it entirely cleanly, but it stayed in 58/2
    13.6 dragged on! We saw a few of those in the Test match here. Good length, outside off, aiming to play square through the off side and gets a bottom edge into the timber. The seventh ball of the over proves a bonus for England! 78/3

    37.2 through him! Nicely done from Rashid. Another one that goes straight on, Marsh giving himself a touch of room, misses the drive and the ball tickles leg stump 205/5
    47.1 finds mid-off! Back of a length, aiming to club it down the ground, doesn't get the elevation and Root grabs it coming forward 285/6
    49.2 well judged on the rope! As calm as you like from Moeen. A short ball, goes for the pull, gets a top edge, Moeen, at deep backward square, is in the shadows which are starting to come across the ground but knows exactly where the rope is and pouches the catch 296/7
    49.5 this is a long way up...and taken at long on. Jason Roy runs in, steadies himself, and makes no mistake. Cummins aiming to clear the leg side, got too much height and not enough distance 300/8

    42.3 short, pulled, top-edged, gone! The end of a triumphant innings from Roy, the MCG rises as one to a brilliant performance. A bit of a tired ending, went for the big humpty over the leg side, but ended up with a lobbed chance to backward square. But what a statement innings from a resurgent one-day team! 281/3
    4.4 edged and gone! A tame end for Bairstow - good line outside off, extra bounce, and a loose tickle through to the keeper. Very Vince in the Ashes, that dismissal 53/1
    5.5 short, and a miscued pull, as Hales ducked into his pull as he realised he'd been beaten for pace. A simple catch pops up to short midwicket, and Australia are very much in the hunt now... 60/2

    44.4 short, wide, and carved to point! Oops! Is this England's late dose of the wobbles? Probably too little too late, but you never rightly know... 288/4
    47.5 launched into the leg side for the winning runs ... but no! It's a top-edge to deep midwicket! 302/5
