England in Australia T20I Series - 1st T20I

Australia v England

England won by 1 wicket (with 0 balls remaining)

6.1

Yardy to Watson, no run, starts excellently, firing it in from wide of the crease and rushing Watson into a defence

6.2

Yardy to Watson, 1 run, width will always cost, but this time just a single as Watson's cut finds deep point

6.3

Yardy to Warner, no run, but won't find it here as he has to hurry to defend a slippery delivery

6.4

Yardy to Warner, FOUR, wrong line from Yardy, heading down the leg side and Warner gets to swing it around the corner firmly for four

6.5

Yardy to Warner, no run, cripes, that is a very swift quicker ball and Warner again scampers into defence

6.6

Yardy to Warner, FOUR, the line is wrong and it's made a good over bad. Fired down the leg side, comes off a flurry of bat and arms and runs away for four down to fine leg to bring up the fifty stand

Australia 50/0   MH Yardy 1-0-9-0

8.1

Yardy to Warner, 1 run, Warner wants a go now but his swinging isn't quite as good and he collects one to deep midwicket

8.2

Yardy to Watson, FOUR, Australia are flying now, this is chopped away past short third man for another boundary. Some class to backup all the muscle

8.3

Yardy to Watson, 2 runs, flicked this time to midwicket for a couple more

8.4

Yardy to Watson, OUT, Watson falls in the fifties again! Gives himself plenty of room very early and Yardy slings down a swift quicker ball that zips off the pitch and crashes into the top of off stump

SR Watson b Yardy 59 (35m 31b 6x4 3x6) SR: 190.32

8.5

Yardy to Hussey, 1 run, tossed up by Yardy this time, don't see that too often and Hussey full-faces down the ground for one

8.6

Yardy to Warner, no run, good delivery again, full and flat and dug out straight back to Warner

Australia 84/1   MH Yardy 2-0-17-1

10.1

Yardy to Warner, 2 runs, Warner hurries back for a second after driving this off his toes to deep mid-on

10.2

Yardy to Warner, no run, good quicker ball, slightly shorter too and cramping Warner for room

10.3

Yardy to Warner, FOUR, this time Warner flays cleanly. Down the track and swinging crisply down to the mid-on boundary

10.4

Yardy to Warner, no run, Yardy's response is predictable - flat and quick - Warner mistimes an attempted cut

10.5

Yardy to Warner, OUT, Warner couldn't quite clear the ropes this innings and he's picked out Shahzad on the midwicket boundary as he swung this to leg

DA Warner c Shahzad b Yardy 30 (45m 28b 5x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

10.6

Yardy to White, no run, this is neither six nor four as instead White shapes the perfect defence back to the bowler

Australia 92/2   MH Yardy 3-0-23-2

17.1

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, Yardy is back and starts with a typically quick flat delivery that's worked into the leg side for one

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

17.3

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, hint of width here means Finch can chop a cut shot away, but only 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

17.6

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, flat-footed hack across the line can only earn a single. Excellent over and an excellent spell

Australia 140/4   MH Yardy 4-0-28-2
