    0.1 gone first ball, that's plumb from Mitchell Starc! Bell is trapped lbw right in front of the stumps, what a start from Starc. He swung the ball in from length, the seam facing leg slip, Bell wanted to defend without moving much and the ball came in to catch him right in front of the stumps. Boom! 0/1
    8.3 Moeen's gone, that's another big wicket! It was the back of length delivery from Faulkner, Glenn Maxwell had been placed in the deep on the off side as Moeen drove again on the up, didn't middle it and Maxi took an easy catch 33/4
    0.3 oh, one more, Starc's struck twice in three balls! Another one swinging in towards the stumps, this was fuller compared to the one Bell got, Taylor went back in the crease to clip the ball on the leg side but was beaten by the movement and struck in front of leg stump. Wasn't as plumb as Bell, but looked out 0/2
    3.4 Cummins as well, he gets Joe Root, England 12 for 3. Cummins had been pitching those on drivable length outside off and it pays off. Root drove this length delivery and edged it straight to Watson at first slip for an easy catch, around waist height 12/3
    47.4 another easy catch for Maxwell, this time Morgan's gone but after such a counter-attacking innings. He middled this short ball on middle stump with the pull but found Maxi at deep midwicket. What a fighting innings from the captain 234/9
    15.3 another bowler has struck in his first over, Bopara gone this time! It was short outside off, Bopara went back and cut it straight to Maxwell at backward point for a straightforward catch 69/5
    34.4 one more for Faulkner, he gets Buttler this time! Angled it across outside the off stump, Buttler drove it up and high in the air and Warner at sweeper cover took a couple of steps to take a simple catch 136/6
    40.2 Woakes has given it away! Pretty innocuous delivery on middle and leg, Woakes went back and worked it to leg but in the air and straight to midwicket for an easy-peasy catch 168/7
    46.6 another one caught in the deep and Jordan has given it away. Short on middle and leg and Jordan pulled it straight to Maxwell at deep midwicket 224/8

    38.4 oh, another wicket, Warner also falls. He tried to heave the length delivery on the off side over the in field but got a leading edge and was caught at point. Raises the bat for the crowd while walking back 227/6

    6.2 he's chopped it on, Finch is gone! Finch didn't move much for the ball that held its line after pitching outside off on back of length, he stayed back to punch it on the off side but got an inside edge that took his off stump 33/1
    12.4 Watson pulls again but is caught this time, very good catch by Woakes running in from deep midwicket! Watson pulled the short ball from just outside off and it went very high, Moeen was running in from deep square leg and Woakes from deep midwicket and the latter ran in a long way to grab it with both hands 71/2

    27.6 he charges down to drive, misses and is bowled! It was a full delivery on the stumps, Smith wanted to go over the covers with his inside-out drive but missed it completely and lost his stumps 158/3
    36.2 the Powerplay does produce a wicket! Short of length ball outside off, Bailey pulled and got a top edge which went high and towards gully. Buttler called for it and took it easily 199/4
    36.5 there's a loud appeal for caught behind and he's gone! It was a fullish delivery outside off, Maxi poked without much footwork, the keeper and bowler went up and so did the umpire's finger! But replays and HotSpot confirm there was no edge, the sound was of the bat hitting the ground 200/5
    39.4 oh, that's chaos, that's just poor stuff from Australia as Haddin is run out! Faulkner dug out the full delivery to short midwicket, Haddin was already halfway down the track and Bopara ran to the non-striker's end with the ball to run him out 233/7

Match Notes

  • Morgan must get England to show some edge

    The way the England captain imposed himself in Sydney can teach his fellow batsmen about finding a bit of mongrel

  • Australia re-open English scars

    Australia hope they have re-opened the scars of last summer's English misery down under with a comfortable opening triangular series victory at the SCG, and the tourists' new captain Eoin Morgan certainly sounded disconsolate after his century served only
