Australia v England

Australia won by 267 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

27.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, good start, banged in short and rises past Haddin but he pulled the bat nicely inside the line

27.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, what a beauty, another full one to follow the short one and Haddin is caught flat-footed on the crease as he plays and misses

27.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, back of a length, Haddin squared up a little as he defends to the off side...an superb over from Tremlett

Australia 69/5   BJ Haddin 0* (3b)

29.1

Tremlett to Haddin, 3 runs, drifts a little straight and Haddin is able to push this firmly through the vacant on-side field...no one beyond short leg in front of square

29.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, pushed down the leg side and Haddin steps inside the line

Australia 75/5   BJ Haddin 3* (5b)

30.2

Anderson to Haddin, no run, angled into leg stump, takes the pad out to the leg side

30.3

Anderson to Haddin, 1 run, firmly blocked into the covers and it's a well-judged single

Australia 77/5   BJ Haddin 4* (7b)

31.1

Tremlett to Haddin, 1 run, well bowled again, banged in short at the body and Haddin fends it just wide of Cook at short leg...actually played it quite well in the end

31.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, hops back in the crease and pushes out to midwicket

Australia 79/5   BJ Haddin 5* (9b)

32.3

Anderson to Haddin, no run, this time there are no birds in the way and it nips back into Haddin who defends in a tangle

32.4

Anderson to Haddin, FOUR, that's a positive response, driven confidently on the up through the covers...it wasn't a bad ball, played on the up by Haddin

32.5

Anderson to Haddin, 2 runs, defended firmly from middle and off, Anderson can't get a hand on it and it's also too straight for mid-off

32.6

Anderson to Haddin, no run, he's not holding back, goes for another drive and this time it takes an inside edge into the leg side

Australia 86/5   BJ Haddin 11* (13b 1x4)

33.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, goes back in the crease and defends very correctly to mid-on

33.6

Tremlett to Haddin, 2 runs, almost a run out, and probably should have been. Haddin clips it off his pads towards deep square and decides he wants a second. There was hesitation and the throw from Trott wasn't on target, leaving Prior too much to do even though his flick hit the stumps. Replays show Haddin was in by a few inches

Australia 89/5   BJ Haddin 13* (15b 1x4)

35.1

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, on off stump and defended firmly into the off side

35.2

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, probing stuff from Tremlett and Haddin defends solidly back down the pitch

35.3

Tremlett to Haddin, FOUR, a cracker from Haddin...floated up full on off stump, met with a crunching straight drive. The batsman can just stand and watch

35.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, responds with a very short bouncer, close to a wide but it's not called

35.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, extra bounce causes problems again, takes the shoulder of the part but doesn't carry towards gully

35.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, lovely ball to end the over, seams away from Haddin who pushes away from his body and is lucky not to edge it

Australia 99/5   BJ Haddin 17* (21b 2x4)

36.3

Anderson to Haddin, no run, short of a length and Haddin is again quickly onto the back foot in defence

36.4

Anderson to Haddin, no run, played into the off side

36.5

Anderson to Haddin, 3 runs, dropped in short again, Haddin responds with a pull that he isn't fully in control of but gets enough of it to clear the infield

Australia 107/5   BJ Haddin 20* (24b 2x4)

37.1

Finn to Haddin, no run, starts full on the stumps and Haddin defends to mid-on

37.2

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, very full outside off, driven hard into the ground and it bounces over Ian Bell at point to then race away

37.3

Finn to Haddin, no run, pushed down the leg side

37.4

Finn to Haddin, no run, stands tall and defended down to mid-on

37.5

Australia 112/5   BJ Haddin 25* (30b 3x4)

38.1

Swann to Haddin, no run, bounce outside off and it's cut to backward point

38.2

Swann to Haddin, no run, touch fuller outside off, Haddin onto the front foot and defends to cover

38.3

Swann to Haddin, FOUR, aggression from Haddin, down the pitch and lofts clear of mid-off...wasn't quite out of the middle, but well out of reach of the fielder

38.4

Swann to Haddin, no run, little flatter and it's defended

38.5

Swann to Haddin, SIX, superb footwork from Haddin, excellent batting, as he skips out of his crease and launches this over long-on

38.6

Swann to Haddin, no run, outside off, pushed to the off side

Australia 122/5   BJ Haddin 35* (36b 4x4 1x6)

40.1

Swann to Haddin, 1 run, driven down the ground to the man at long-on, easy single there

40.6

Swann to Haddin, 1 run, a comfortable single for Haddin as he works the ball to long-on

Australia 139/6   BJ Haddin 37* (38b 4x4 1x6)

41.1

Finn to Haddin, no run, angling in to the pads of Haddin, who can't get bat on that one

41.2

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, that's a terrific piece of batting from Haddin, almost in one-day mode as he waits on a short ball at chest height, then just guides it over the slips, fully intending to land that ball down at the vacant third man area. Well played.

41.3

Finn to Haddin, no run, solidly defended to the off side

41.4

Finn to Haddin, no run, just to confirm that Haddin is in limited-overs mode, he backs away and advances down the pitch, trying to cut over point but this one bounces over his bat and safely through to Prior

41.5

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, another boundary from Haddin, though this one wasn't deliberate. Finn goes fuller and draws an edge, but it runs away safely wide of the slips to third man - though it would have bounced short of a third slip anyway

41.6

Finn to Haddin, no run, crunched back down the pitch to Finn

Australia 147/6   BJ Haddin 45* (44b 6x4 1x6)

42.5

44.1

Swann to Haddin, no run, turning in to Haddin, who defends

44.2

Swann to Haddin, no run, sharp turn there from Swann, onto the pads of Haddin, the ball lobs up to the vacant leg slip area

44.3

Swann to Haddin, 1 run, tossed up outside off, tempting Haddin to drive - he does, and finds a single at long-off

44.6

Swann to Haddin, no run, pushed to mid-off, can't beat the field this time

Australia 158/6   BJ Haddin 46* (50b 6x4 1x6)

45.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, ah, another lovely delivery that beats the outside edge, this one angles in and then straightens

45.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, straight and fullish, Haddin defends

Australia 159/6   BJ Haddin 46* (52b 6x4 1x6)

49.4

49.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, again Haddin gets in behind it with a straight bat

49.6

Tremlett to Haddin, 1 run, shouts of 'caaaaatch' as Haddin hooks, but that bounces safely short of fine leg

Australia 170/6   BJ Haddin 49* (66b 6x4 1x6)

50.1

Swann to Haddin, 1 run, Haddin punches this one down the ground, gets it to long off and that's his half-century, another really important knock from one of the few in-form batsmen in Australia's team at the moment

50.6

Swann to Haddin, 1 run, driven to long on for a single

Australia 173/6   BJ Haddin 51* (68b 6x4 1x6)

51.4

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, beaten, lovely stuff from the tall Tremlett, short of a good length this time and nipped away to just evade the outside edge, Haddin was drawn forward but was almost done in by the movement

51.5

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, short of a good length again but holds its line, trusting the bounce and so he should at the WACA, rocks back and dabs it to point

51.6

Tremlett to Haddin, no run, short of a good length again, punched off the back foot to cover

Australia 173/6   BJ Haddin 51* (74b 6x4 1x6)

53.1

Collingwood to Haddin, 1 run, a thick inside edge for Haddin, held its line and it appeared he was expecting it to nip away slightly, past square leg for a single

53.6

Collingwood to Haddin, no run, good length and holds its line, Haddin lets it go and that's tea

Australia 179/6   BJ Haddin 52* (76b 6x4 1x6)

55.1

Anderson to Haddin, 1 run, Anderson starts with one slightly outside off that Haddin steers, with bat and pad far apart, safely for a single behind square

Anderson to Haddin, no run, Haddin bats like a man with time on his side, easing into line to defend

Australia 188/6   BJ Haddin 53* (79b 6x4 1x6)

57.3

Anderson to Haddin, OUT, Anderson strikes but it looks a horrid shot. If it came off we'd be cheering but as it is, this is a gift. Well outside off stump at a drive-me length, Haddin threw his arms at it, leaning back, head up, and off the edge it went high to Swann at second slip clasped onto a very sharp catch, jumping high above his head and tumbling back as he held on
