    14.6 comes forward, chipped into the off side without conviction - and Roy is gone! This is a waste, he was looking so good and he has donated Agar his maiden ODI wicket, popping the ball straight to short extra cover. Maxwell initially palmed it up into the air and then grabbed it at the second attempt 86/2
    9.3 full and clipped off the pads... straight to short midwicket! Hales has been thrashing around but getting nowhere for a while and he's finally picked out a fielder, wasn't over the shot and the catch was snapped up at waist height. Hales swipes his bat in frustration before sloping off 52/1

    49.2 short of a length, tries to club down the ground... but can't clear mid-off! Taylor falls for 101, top-edging tamely to the edge of the ring to leave England eight down 291/8
    33.1 picks out long-off...Maxwell strikes first ball back! Aims to clear the boundary again, but it comes off the bottom of the bat and lands comfortably in the lap of Starc as he takes a couple of paces in 205/3
    39.2 slogged high into the leg side and Finch positions himself safely under it at mid-on! Stokes will obstruct the England innings no longer, he was trying to put Maxwell into the confectionary stall but only succeeded in sending a top edge billowing straight up into sky 231/4
    45.3 full, driven along the carpet to Smith at mid-off, Bairstow takes on the throw... and a direct hit does for him! It was very tight and YJB went scampering back for a second from the ricochet but the umpires sent it upstairs and replays proved he was a few milimetres short 271/5
    46.1 Moeen goes big... and goes home! Tries to pull a length ball from outside off stump and sends a top edge steepling to midwicket. England are trying to tap out, here 273/6
    46.5 short and pulled to midwicket, Plunkett had come charging down... and he's run out by a mile as Taylor sends him back! Another flaccid dismissal, although to be fair to Taylor there was no run there 279/7

    6.1 nearly a tangle, but the catch is taken! Burns aiming to flick through the leg side, gets a leading edge towards mid-off. Roy came across from cover and almost collides with Morgan, but they just avoid a collision and the captain holds on 33/1
    21.4 Finch tries to tee off... and hits it straight up and down into the safe hands of Woakes running in from long-on! Rashid has a second, he's been a struggle to score off and Finch was trying to break the shackles, a moment of Hulk-like violence but he is soon slinking off looking more like Bruce Banner 106/3
    15.5 what a catch! Finn at short midwicket. Unusual position for him, but he's used his reach to great effect. Smith down the pitch, aimed a flick through the leg side, Finn flings himself to his right - almost horizontal - sticks out his right hand and holds a blinder. Jonty Rhodes and Ben Stokes would have been proud. 75/2
    28.5 full toss from Moeen, clubbed to leg... but straight to the fielder at deep midwicket! Bailey can't believe it but England are delighted, he came down the pitch and heaved a rank delivery down the throat of Stokes as he came in off the rope 141/5
    26.3 tries a reverse dab this time, a top edge loops up and Bairstow takes a simple catch! Umpire Wilson slowly raises his finger and although Maxwell looks disgusted it is probably with the shot rather than the decision. It was more of a poke where the previous two attempts went fully through with the shot and the ball spooned off the toe, hit the arm and Bairstow didn't have far to go to complete the catch 128/4
    33.6 slightly back of a length, Marsh shovels it off his hips.... straight to midwicket! Another one goes, Marsh having to make the disconsolate trudge back to the changing rooms. Australia in the doo-doo now 154/6

    43.6 and that's all over! Down the pitch, swings to leg against a length delivery, misses and gets cleaned up 207/10
    37.6 amazing! Roy holds what turns into a screamer. Agar launched this miles into the night sky and into the lights. Roy steadies himself at long on, but slightly misjudges it and the ball spills out as he falls backwards but, astonishingly, he is able to hold the rebound before the ball falls to the ground. A touch of fortune, yes, but some mind-boggling reflexes and awareness 165/7
    38.5 what lovely bowling! Pitches on off stump, spins, and takes Starc's outside edge as he drives...neat catch from Bairstow 167/8
    39.4 another catch for Roy...much more regulation. Cummins lofts a length delivery right down his throat at long-on 172/9
