    6.5 top catch! Marsh trying to guide this delivery down to third man, was a little close to him and the thick outside edge is grabbed by Bell diving high to his left at second slip. A good start from Bresnan is rewarded 46/1
    35.2 massive moment! Finch guides a short-of-a-length delivery towards third man where Broad runs around the rope and holds a well-judged catch 189/5
    20.4 oh dear, Wade has tried to force the pace now with a drive over long-off but all he's managed to do was find Cook in the ring 110/2
    25.6 down leg side and this flicks something on the way through to Buttler. It sounded thuddy as if it was pad, and the caught-behind appeal is turned down. England want a review. Well, this is very interesting. The front-on view didn't seem to support the review but Hot Spot has shown something. A clear mark on Hot Spot from the side on camera and this is out! What a good review - the sound didn't seem like bat, but Hot Spot said it was off the face of the bat before the pad. After the umpires also double-check that the ball has carried, Bailey has been given out! 132/3
    31.4 and that's what he needs! Broad pitches up outside off, just a hint of movement away to take Smith's outside edge. Well bowled, just rolled his fingers across the ball to create some cut 174/4
    39.1 strikes first ball! An excellent match continues for Stokes. It was a back-of-a-length cutter, gripped a little on the pitch, which Maxwell tried to swing with all his power through the leg side but only got a thin edge to Buttler 222/6
    44.6 Christian is gone now, yet another batsman in this match caught at third man. He's swung hard and a thickish edge is taken by a sliding Gary Ballance 247/9
    41.5 another wicket and it's the big one! Faulkner will not be the hero today. The extra bounce has done for Faulkner as it did for Maxwell. Faulkner backs off a touch and tries to slash through off and a top edge sails safely through to Buttler 230/7
    43.3 bowled, middle stump! Johnson went the big swing and Stokes was accurate enough to hit. This is England's match now, it's hard to see any way out for Australia. 239/8
    not out
    47.4 it's over! England have won! Pattinson skies a high top edge that flies over the head of the keeper, but Buttler is good enough to run back and take a well-judged catch 259/10
