The Ashes - 3rd Test

Australia v England

Australia won by 267 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

0.1

Anderson to Watson, no run, outside off stump, hint of swing away and left alone outside off stump

0.2

Anderson to Watson, no run, dragged down a touch wide outside off and it's another comfortable leave

0.3

Anderson to Watson, no run, tighter line, closer to off stump, but Watson is again able to shoulder arms

0.4

Anderson to Watson, no run, the batsman hasn't had to play yet as this one is left to fly past off stump...no great carry through to Matt Prior

0.5

Anderson to Watson, no run, on a good length, not much movement and for the fifth time Watson lifts his bat high

0.6

Anderson to Watson, no run, Review drama already, this one slants down the leg side and takes a deflection through to Prior who takes a good catch. It's given out, but Watson calls for the review straight away and it's correctly overturned as the replays show it took the thigh pad. UDRS works again

Australia 0/0   SR Watson 0* (6b)

2.1

Anderson to Watson, no run, outside off and left alone...Anderson isn't quite on target yet

2.2

Anderson to Watson, no run, that's better, jags back off a good length and goes over the stumps

2.3

Anderson to Watson, no run, fuller on off stump, brings Watson forward and he drives to backward point

2.4

Anderson to Watson, no run

2.5

Anderson to Watson, no run, too wide outside off again as Watson gets plenty of sighters early on...Anderson needs to make the most of the new ball

2.6

Anderson to Watson, 2 runs, better line from Anderson, finds the edge of Watson's bat but it's well controlled and runs safely between third slip and gully

Australia 4/1   SR Watson 2* (12b)

4.1

Anderson to Watson, 1 run, dropped but it would have been a stunner. Wide from Anderson, Watson flashes hard and gets a top edge. Strauss leaps, one-handed at first slip but can't cling on. He had to change hands at the last minute

Australia 13/1   SR Watson 3* (13b)

5.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, outside off and left alone, more decent carry through to the keeper

5.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, on the stumps and worked down in front of short leg

5.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, shoulders arms outside off again...can leave on Tremlett's bounce on this pitch

5.4

Tremlett to Watson, 1 run, comes forward and drives into the covers without much power or timing

Australia 18/2   SR Watson 4* (17b)

6.1

Anderson to Watson, 1 run, worked around into the leg side wide of short leg

Australia 19/2   SR Watson 5* (18b)

7.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, good ball from Tremlett, nips back off a good length and strikes Watson right in the stomach

7.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, on middle and off, Watson stays back in his crease and defends down to mid-on

7.3

Tremlett to Watson, FOUR, powerful from Watson as he latches onto a full, wide delivery from Tremlett and drives it handsomely through the covers with a flourish at the end

7.4

Tremlett to Watson, 1 run, tucked off the pads towards deeps square-leg

Australia 28/2   SR Watson 10* (22b 1x4)

8.1

Anderson to Watson, no run, full on off stump, defended with bat and pad together

8.2

Anderson to Watson, no run, onto the front foot, bat and pad together as he defends back to the bowler

8.3

Anderson to Watson, no run, good ball outside off which nearly draws Watson into having a push but he pulls out at the last minute

8.4

Anderson to Watson, no run, ah, that's gone a bit wrong from Anderson as he sprays it well wide of off stump

8.5

Anderson to Watson, no run, too wide again and Watson leaves alone...Anderson has quite been able to replicate his Adelaide form so far

8.6

Anderson to Watson, no run, that's more like it, back of a length on off stump and Watson defends to the off side

Australia 28/3   SR Watson 10* (28b 1x4)

11.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, left alone outside off

11.2

Tremlett to Watson, no run, gee, that was close, outside off and shapes back into Watson who lets it go

11.3

Tremlett to Watson, no run, well bowled, banged in from Tremlett and Watson fends it off just in front of Cook at short leg. Climbed off a good length and caught Watson by surprise

11.4

Tremlett to Watson, no run, defends with soft hands so the outside edge falls well short of gully

11.5

Tremlett to Watson, no run, pushed down the leg side and another excellent take from Prior who is having a good morning

11.6

Tremlett to Watson, no run, good length outside off, good carry to the keeper and another fine over from Tremlett

Australia 29/3   SR Watson 10* (34b 1x4)

13.1

Tremlett to Watson, no run, short of a length, Watson jumps back into his crease to defend

13.2

Tremlett to Watson, 1 run, attacking the stumps now and Watson works it wide of mid on to sneak through for a single

Australia 34/3   SR Watson 11* (36b 1x4)

14.1

Finn to Watson, 1 run, full and on off stump, Watson tries to drive straight and gets a clunky inside edge away through midwicket

Australia 35/3   SR Watson 12* (37b 1x4)

15.1

Anderson to Watson, no run, on the stumps immediately, Watson defends

15.2

Anderson to Watson, 1 run, on the pads now, Watson clips it to square leg for a single

Australia 36/3   SR Watson 13* (39b 1x4)

16.1

Finn to Watson, OUT, Finn gets Watson! What a terrific yorker! Straight and fast, Watson is late with the bat and it's ball on toe before ball on bat, Billy Doctrove gives it out. Rather forlornly, Watson wants a review, but that remains out! Umpire's call on whether it hit in line, it's crashing into off stump, so Finn gets his man.

SR Watson lbw b Finn 13 (72m 40b 1x4 0x6) SR: 32.50

Australia 36/4   SR Watson 13 (40b 1x4)
