    35.5 that, on the other hand, will do very nicely! A cross-seamer from Tye, zipping into the right-hander, catching the toe of the bat as it does so, and what a take from Paine! Changing direction to fling himself down the leg-side, and grabbing in one hand. Quite the recovery from his blow in the face just now! 239/4
    8.2 tighter line, Bairstow has a swish, and nicks through to the keeper! Bairstow was a victim of over-confidence there, looking to leather everything in his slot, but picking the wrong shot for that ball. The switch of ends works, and Australia have a toe-hold! 63/1
    18.4 oh, ripped through 'im! Richardson spears Hales with the perfect line and length, through the gate to hit the top of middle! That's Kryptonite for Hales, seaming in and sending him back to the hutch for a middling score 113/2
    27.5 pulled flat hard into the deep - but D'Arcy Short dives forward to hold a blinder! Stoinis celebrates, but credit to the catcher, a fine bit of work on his debut! Root had skipped down as the ball was banged in short, he tried to get on top of an aggressive panhandle through midwicket and looked like he might get away with it... only for Short to come up standing tall, scooping the ball up inches from the turf and then holding tight as he slid forwards 179/3

    42.5 inside-edge onto the stumps! The slower ball does for Billings ... he never got going really, failed to pick the variation and shivered his own timbers 289/5
    45.1 swung out to the deep, and picks out the man at square leg! The short ball did for him at The Oval, it's the full one this time, Moeen comes and goes without much impact 300/6
    48.5 banged in short again, and Richardson does brilliantly to hurtle out to point in his followthrough to complete the caught and bowled! England's flaccid finale continues 325/7
    49.3 whoops, a mistimed wipe to the leg side, a non-existent single, but Plunkett figures it's better to get Buttler back on strike. He's not even in the frame as the bails are whipped off. Fair play! 332/8

    3.2 flicked into the leg side, uppish but dying in front of midwicket... where Hales scoops up a brilliant one-handed catch! That is a superb effort, throwing himself forward and low to his right! They are going to check with the TV umpire, but the soft signal is out. Yep, Dharmasena is happy, England have the breakthrough. Wood has lopped off Australia's Head! 24/1
    14.5 bit of turn, Short plays back, edged and snapped up at slip! Moeen strikes again, he's enjoying bowling to Australia... Short hadn't looked particularly adept, he had his struggles in the IPL, of course, and now he's heading back for 21 off 33 on ODI debut 77/2

    45.4 oh, GONE - bowled 'im! Plunkett hits the woodwork and Australia's best hope of winning walks off after a magnificent century. The crowd rises to applaud him up the steps, probably realising that wicket might have clinched the game... Slower ball from Plunkett, the cutter gripped and hit leg stump as Marsh swung across the line 293/8
    19.3 bosh! Back of a length, skids through Stoinis's defences, and into the stumps via an inside edge! Plunkett rewarded for hitting the length and extracting natural variation. Definitely kept low but it was a cross-seamer which exacerbated the lack of bounce 99/3
    20.5 pinned on the shin and up goes the finger! Finch thinks about reviewing but thinks better of it. He was down on the sweep, plumb in front, and after a brief consultation he turns and walks. Huge wicket! 110/4
    30.2 hoisted down the ground as Maxwell tries to stay leg-sided, but Moeen does him in the flight, cramps him for room, and Willey at mid-on takes the critical catch! 164/5
    42.2 does him with the googly, Agar stumped well out of his ground! Lovely bit bowling, lured him down and then spun it away as Agar swung down the ground, Buttler finished the job 260/6
    45.2 short ball, into the body and Paine flips it straight to fine leg! This time the catch is held, a short-lived cameo from Paine but while Marsh is still at the other end Australia can dream. Think that was a cutter from Plunkett, no pace for Paine to work with 292/7
    46.4 slider, Tye carts towards cow - picks out the man! Rashid is happy again, safely taken running across by one of England's best fielders, Tye unable to get the power and elevation he needed 303/9
    47.1 slower delivery, clubbed towards wide long-on... and Roy tumbles to take an excellent diving catch! Plunkett has four and England have wrapped up victory by 38 runs in Cardiff! 304/10
