    2.5 angled across, Burns prods at it... and plays on to his stumps! An unconvincing stay from Burns, didn't really get a feel for ball on bat and this time a fraction of inward movement results in a drag-on. The ball was not quite there to cut, no real conviction in the shot 14/1
    8.3 goes on with the arm, Finch feels for it and nicks off! Willey fell over in his follow through and had to appeal from the floor - but it's Australia who looking unsteady on their feet, three down for spit. Willey has been mixing up inswingers with bother-balls in the channel, Finch wasn't quite sure what was coming and just got a thin snick through to Bairstow 30/3
    6.2 pinned in front, Smith falling over his feet - gone! A corking delivery, right up in the blockhole and Smith failed to get bat on it this time as he swung across the line, hit on the back foot plumb in front of middle and off, the ball curving back beautifully... Thinks about a review but instead decides to take his medicine and head for the dressing room 25/2
    40.3 gosh, now that changes things! Bailey was early onto the drive, the ball stopped in the pitch, popped up off the bat sticker, and straight back into the bowler's grateful mitts! England, it is fair to say, are bossing this Powerplay. 210/6

    29.4 speared in and leg stump is pegged back, Maxwell bowled trying to reverse-sweep! The onslaught is over, a reversey Percy too many, though it's a surprise that Maxwell got it wrong rather than Bailey... The ball was straight and skipped under the bat as Maxwell aimed another swingeing swat through point 167/4
    40.1 full, straight, chipped high and hard but only as far as David Willey at long-off who took a well-judged catch in the deep. Instant strike for England and that target of 300 takes a touch of a dent 210/5

    41.4 reverse sweep, and Australia have lost their third wicket in ten balls! Stoinis drops to one knee, attempts to pick the gap, but merely picks out gully instead! A disappointing debut ends. With the bat at least ... 215/7

    10.1 a change of ends, a change of luck! Cummins lures Roy into a loose poke into the covers. A tame end to a cracking innings. Scrambled seam and Roy was through the stroke too soon. 73/2
    1.2 full, fast, and that is out! Hales was done for pace, and despite a brief consultation he opts not to review. Stunning start from the lightning-quick Cummins. Hales hasn't had a lot of joy in this series so far 1/1
    15.4 wow, what a take! Massive dive to his left, down the leg-side, as Taylor flicked so fine that it was almost the perfect one-day stroke. But Wade was equal to the task, and that is a massive breakthrough 89/3
    39.4 pitched up and sliced to backward point WHERE MAXWELL GRABS A SCREAMER! Australia are still in this, Morgan falls short of a hundred thanks to a brilliant one-handed take from Maxwell low to his right, more than making up for his fumble a couple of balls ago. Cummins has his third and England still have a bit of work to do 238/5

    33.3 bowled him, slips a yorker under the bat, Stokes is gone! May have taken the pace off a touch and Stokes was beaten aiming a push down the ground, he looks back in disgust... A decent, controlled knock, and a useful stand but that's opened up a chink for Australia to try and exploit 180/4
    42.4 reverse-sweep, through to the keeper with a loud cry of triumph, and they have gone for the review. It's a fair delivery, and is there a hint of a hot spot on the glove? He's a goner 261/6

    45.1 wow, was that actually a clean catch? It's becoming commonplace these days, to take the ball above the head, on the rope, stagger back, lob the ball back into play, leap back over the rope, snaffle the rebound in mid-air and land as if nothing has happened. But Glenn Maxwell has just done it again! And Plunkett's clunk-it innings is over 282/7
