Played at Adelaide Oval
12 January 2011 - night match (20-over match)
16.6

Bresnan to Smith, 2 runs, Smith starts by shuffling across his stumps and it's flicked off the toes towards long-on for a swiftly-taken couple

Australia 135/4   SPD Smith 2* (1b)
17.2

Yardy to Smith, 1 run, Smith is down the wicket and almost deceived by lack of pace from Yardy, but still works down the ground for one

17.4

Yardy to Smith, no run, this hurries through Smith's attempted work-to-leg before he could get a bat on it

17.5

Yardy to Smith, 1 run, this is swatted, with no great timing or power, down to long-on for one

Australia 139/4   SPD Smith 4* (4b)
18.2

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, this time Bresnan lands the yorker and it's driven hard square of the wicket but straight to deep point

18.5

Bresnan to Smith, no run, and again it's a play and miss outside off! This is turning into a monster over

18.6

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, fantastic death over ends with another yorker that's just about dug out for a single

Australia 144/4   SPD Smith 6* (7b)
19.1

Shahzad to Smith, 1 run, not here, as Smith fetches a full wide delivery into the midwicket region for a single

19.4

Shahzad to Smith, 2 runs, this time it's heaved into the leg side, no great power or timing but good running makes it a couple

19.5

Shahzad to Smith, FOUR, shot! The cheeky cheery Smith finally shows himself. This is full and straight and quick and it's reverse-flicked for four over third man

19.6

Shahzad to Smith, 2 runs, Two to finish as Smith slugs it down the ground. Pretty good fielding effort from England to restrict Australia on a good pitch but runs on the board must count for something

Australia 157/4   SPD Smith 15* (11b 1x4)
