12 January 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Bresnan to Watson, no run, straight away Bresnan hits his length and line, just like the Tests, and Watson solidly forward to defend


Bresnan to Watson, no run, again Bresnan bangs it down on a length and Watson aims a swish which he can't connect with


Bresnan to Watson, FOUR, wow, Watson has banged this so hard to the cover boundary that he's broken his bat. The handle comes off as he plays the shot - smacking a full wide delivery away


Bresnan to Watson, no run, this is again mullered by Watson, on the up as well, but Luke Wright diving at mid-off cuts off the runs


Bresnan to Watson, FOUR, yup, Watson is ticking now, gets a length ball from Bresnan and whips it to the midwicket boundary


Bresnan to Watson, 1 run, low full toss comes off the toe-end and trickles down to long-on. Probably tried to hit it too hard there

Australia 29/0   TT Bresnan 1-0-9-0

Bresnan to Warner, 1 leg bye, Bresnan finds a length around leg stump and it thuds off the pads around the corner for a jogged single


Bresnan to Watson, 1 run, full toss from Bresnan and Watson toe-ends to longish mid-on, jogging through for another single


Bresnan to Warner, no run, Warner hasn't quite found his range and despite the width here his cut shot is mistimed to cover


Bresnan to Warner, no run, good length and line from Bresnan and Warner has nowhere to go


Bresnan to Warner, 1 run, good work from Bresnan, rushing onto Warner from back of a length, it crashes off the body into the off side and a sharp single is taken


Bresnan to Watson, 1 run, ouch! Watson murdered a drive back at Bresnan, who stuck out a boot and found, to his horror, the ball crashing into it

Australia 41/0   TT Bresnan 2-0-12-0

Bresnan to Finch, no run, sharp delivery from Bresnan, hitting a length outside off stump and zipping past the outside edge


Bresnan to Finch, FOUR, Finch is away now properly, skips down the wicket gets a touch of width and creams it wide of point for four


Bresnan to Finch, 1 run, Bresnan corrects his length and line and it's driven very correctly to deep cover


Bresnan to Hussey, SIX, That's gone way, way, way back. Bresnan lands a half-tracker and Hussey threw everything into his pull shot, sending it miles into the stands at midwicket


Bresnan to Hussey, OUT, emphatic response from Bresnan. Perfect yorker rocks the middle pole. Hussey gives himself room, too much room and can't squeeze anything down in time

DJ Hussey b Bresnan 28 (32m 27b 1x4 1x6) SR: 103.70


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   TT Bresnan 3-0-25-1

Bresnan to Finch, 1 run, Bresnan starts unspectacularly with a full toss that is shoved down to midwicket for one


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


Bresnan to Finch, no run, excellent work from Bresnan, full outside off stump, Finch flays and misses


Bresnan to Finch, 1 bye, ooh dear, this was an awful shot. Full ball again and Finch had his head in the skies as he tries to slug this into the leg side. The best thing he did was was run a bye


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


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

Australia 144/4   TT Bresnan 4-0-28-1
