    11.4 he's done it, Watson makes the breakthrough, drawing Cook into a drive to be caught behind! Cook will feel he should have pinged that through the covers, it was a little wide, on a good length but they've not had any problems hitting on the up this morning - just a thin snick of bat and Cook trudges off having made another solid start but failed to go on 57/1

    37.4 full and straight, Bell gets cleaned up so he won't have a hometown hundred...Bell suggests the ball didn't bounce as he expected, but I just think he missed a straight one 189/3
    33.4 there's the breakthrough for Australia...Trott chases a wide ball outside off and gets a thin edge through to Wade 168/2
    38.3 back to back wickets, Root clips a delivery from off stump straight to midwicket...Australia now making some significant inroads 189/4

    42.5 shuffles across and bowled round his legs! McKay suckers him, maybe took the pace off a touch, Morgan going right across and exposing middle and leg stump, tried to wristily flick the ball over backward square leg, missed and the ball hit 212/5

    43.1 and Buttler's gone second ball, edging on to his stumps! Good areas from Faulkner, not quite wide or full enough for the drive and Buttler played away from his body, not much footwork, the ball cannoning back into his standing leg and then on to middle stump - the gunpowder has exploded in England's face! 213/6

    5.5 fuller and driven at, edged to the keeper where Jos Buttler takes a fine catch to his left, no slip in place so that was an excellent grab diving with two hands. England have earned the wicket with their excellent start, a bit of width offered and Warner couldn't resist, flashing the hands at it without moving his feet and got a big nick that Buttler held superbly 17/1
    14.3 full ball on the stumps, huge appeal for lbw, the ball cannons to gully where Cook takes the catch, either way Watson's out and he's caught, having got a thin edge onto the front pad that looped up to Cook. The delivery tailed in a little and Watson got outside the line and overbalanced 47/2

    25.4 skids on, Hughes plays an ugly swipe across the line and is hit in front - Dharmasena gives it! That was a horrible shot from Hughes, he was getting tied down by Root's gentle offies, he tried to pull the ball off a length and was struck in front of middle and leg; the question was whether it would clip leg but Dharmasena was happy enough and Hughes decides against reviewing 94/3
    39.1 around the wicket again, a few steps down the track, tries to take on long on but doesn't get anywhere near the proper connection and Joe Root takes the catch a very easy chance going a few yards to his left. It was a weak shot from Bailey and looped very comfortably to the fielder, Australia's last hope, if there was still hope, gone 151/7

    32.4 Voges swings, misses and is bowled, Bresnan strikes for England! Looked like a little offcutter, rolling his fingers over the ball and it jinked back just enough off the pitch as Voges tried to hit down the ground, beat the bat on the inside and clattered into the top of middle and off stump 127/4
    35.1 back of a length and pushed off the back foot straight to point and Anderson becomes the highest wicket-taker in one-day cricket for England. A loose stroke from Marsh outside off, it went at a good catchable height, very quickly but straight to Morgan who clung on at chest height with two hands, a sharp grab 134/5
    35.6 full and sliding past the outside edge, taken by the keeper and given out! Umpire Dharmasena nodded his head for the edge, they're going to check whether it carried to Buttler. There was no hesitation from Buttler who threw it up straight away, Hot Spot confirms a thin edge too, there was a nervy look behind by Wade as it went past the bat, definitely out, no idea why Wade his hanging around for, he's gone 136/6

    42.4 full toss comes off high on the bat and loops to point. Oh dear Mitchell, a waist-high full toss, he's tried to slug it over the off side but is too late on the stroke and chipped up an easy catch to Morgan, they umpires had a quick check for the height of the delivery but concurred that it was fine 175/8
    44.5 full and straight and Starc misses trying to drive down the ground middle stump out of the ground, comprehensively cleaned up, representative of this innings perhaps? Little bit of inswing from Anderson and Starc also beaten by the pace, his feet went nowhere and he was castled 190/9
