Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

44.4

Bresnan to Clarke, 3 runs, Clarke's away! Not without a hint of nerves though. Bresnan asked for a drive wide of off stump and Clarke really pushed at it, wide of cover for three

Australia 108/2   MJ Clarke 3* (1b)

45.1

Anderson to Clarke, no run, again Clarke is pushing bat away from body, it comes off an inside edge back towards the bowler

45.2

Anderson to Clarke, no run, this is outside off stump and Clarke calms everyone's nerves by leaving all alone

45.3

Anderson to Clarke, no run, fuller from Anderson, straighter too, and Clarke pushes firmly to mid-on

45.4

Anderson to Clarke, no run, once again Clarke judges the length and line well and decides to leave alone

45.5

Anderson to Clarke, no run, Clarke gets another sighter outside off stump and has nothing to do with it

45.6

Anderson to Clarke, no run, there is some good carry outside off but it means Clarke can happily leave alone

Australia 108/2   MJ Clarke 3* (7b)

46.3

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, banged in very short wide of off stump, Clarke thought about a pull shot but decided rightly it would have been ridiculous

46.4

Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, short again from Bresnan, straighter this time and it's tucked off this hip around the corner for a single

Australia 110/2   MJ Clarke 4* (9b)

48.1

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, left alone outside off

48.2

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, angled in to the off stump of Clarke, who pushes it back to the bowler

48.3

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, a little edgy there as Clarke is squared up, it runs along the ground to gully

48.4

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, there's a big stride forward from Clarke, who defends

48.5

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, well outside off and it's left alone

48.6

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, another one left alone by Clarke as Bresnan bangs it in short of a length

Australia 111/2   MJ Clarke 4* (15b)

49.5

Anderson to Clarke, no run, on the pads of Clarke, who dabs it to midwicket

49.6

Anderson to Clarke, no run, good straight drive from Clarke but mid-on dives across to make the save

Australia 112/2   MJ Clarke 4* (17b)

50.3

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, clipped away to the leg side

50.4

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, solidly defended by Clarke, who nudges to cover

50.5

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, watchful stuff from Clarke, who meets the ball with the full face of the bat

50.6

Bresnan to Clarke, OUT, gone! Clarke has been caught at gully, cutting hard and in the air, really not a smart shot from the Australian captain and Anderson takes the catch

MJ Clarke c Anderson b Bresnan 4 (25m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 19.04

Australia 113/3   MJ Clarke 4 (21b)
