Played at Adelaide Oval
12 January 2011 - night match (20-over match)
0.1

Woakes to Warner, 1 run, tidy enough start for both teams, dished up fullish on the stumps, Warner flicks around the corner for a single, they thought about two before thinking again

0.2

Woakes to Watson, 2 runs, Woakes is lucky to get away with this, it's hideously short and wide and Watson slaps it towards third man who scoots round to field

0.3

Woakes to Watson, no run, short ball followed by a half-volley that Watson cracks towards mid-on where a tumbling Pietersen fields well to save

0.4

Woakes to Watson, no run, much better this time, Woakes finds the length and line to meet that characteristic clunked forward block from Watson

0.5

Woakes to Watson, 1 run, Woakes is happy to go full in search of swing, there isn't any and Watson drills a straight drive that again Pietersen fields smartly

0.6

Woakes to Warner, no run, back of a length this time, Warner tried to work to leg but couldn't. All of which ends a tidy over

Australia 4/0   CR Woakes 1-0-4-0
2.1

Woakes to Warner, no run, Australia are just hitting the field at the moment, Woakes here aims full and Warner cracks it straight to mid-off

2.2

Woakes to Warner, FOUR, first boundary of the day and the ball certainly deserved it. Grisly wide delivery, full as well, Warner just had to throw his arms through the line and the boundary followed

2.3

Woakes to Warner, FOUR, and again! Even better shot this time. On the up and threaded through extra cover

2.4

Woakes to Warner, 1 run, decent recovery from Woakes, reverting to a length and line and it's crisply punched to mid-on for a swiftly-taken single

2.5

Woakes to Watson, FOUR, oops, a few wide ones and now this is fatally full on the pads. Watson only had to help it on its way with a flick of his wrists to collect another boundary

2.6

Woakes to Watson, 1 run, this time it's worked off a middle-stump line to midwicket for another single

Australia 20/0   CR Woakes 2-0-18-0
12.1

Woakes to Hussey, 1 wide, starts with a bouncer, sadly for him the line is wrong, too far down the leg side

12.1

Woakes to Hussey, 1 run, Woakes very wide of the crease and fires this in full, worked away with the angle to deep square

12.2

Woakes to White, no run, this time Woakes locates the ideal length and line and White can do nothing but defend

12.3

Woakes to White, 1 run, hint of a slower ball here and it's driven without much power down the ground

12.4

Woakes to Hussey, 1 run, again there is not much timing, as this comes off the inside edge down the ground for one

12.5

Woakes to White, 1 run, an attempted yorker is steered away for a single to midwicket that brings up the Australia 100

12.6

Woakes to Hussey, 1 run, good over ends with a mistimed drive down the ground for one

Australia 101/2   CR Woakes 3-0-24-0
14.1

Woakes to White, 1 run, Woakes finds an off-stump line, no great pace though and White cracks it to deep square

14.2

Woakes to Hussey, 2 runs, Hussey hasn't quite middled this which means he can collect two down to long-off

14.3

Woakes to Hussey, FOUR, ugly stroke as Hussey slugs across the line and it heads off the bottom edge down past short fine leg for four

14.4

Woakes to Hussey, 1 run, Woakes jumps very wide of the crease to angle this in and it's driven down the ground where Bresnan does well to keep it to two

14.5

Woakes to White, 2 runs, this fires off the inside edge and heads down to backwards square leg

14.6

Woakes to White, OUT, Woakes has his first international wicket! White departs trying to heave this over long-on, Pietersen jogs in, sets himself and holds an easy catch. Decent effort from Woakes removing a key scalp

CL White c Pietersen b Woakes 6 (14m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 115/3   CR Woakes 4-0-34-1
