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

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

Australia 10/0   DA Warner 6* (7b 1x4)   CR Woakes 1.2-0-8-0

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

Australia 14/0   DA Warner 10* (8b 2x4)   CR Woakes 1.3-0-12-0

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

Australia 19/0   SR Watson 8* (8b 1x4)   CR Woakes 1.5-0-17-0

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

Australia 24/0   SR Watson 13* (12b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 0.3-0-4-0

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

Australia 28/0   SR Watson 17* (14b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 0.5-0-8-0

Shahzad to Watson, FOUR, Pietersen has made a hash of that. He was moved back to a deepish mid-on and Watson duly drove uppishly in his direction but as he set himself the ball sailed over his head and went for four!

Australia 35/0   SR Watson 23* (17b 4x4)   A Shahzad 1.4-0-8-0

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

Australia 46/0   DA Warner 18* (18b 3x4)   MH Yardy 0.4-0-5-0

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   DA Warner 22* (20b 4x4)   MH Yardy 1-0-9-0

Swann to Watson, FOUR, four more this time and Watson has fifty! What an over, what an innings! This is again boshed from outside off stump very firmly for four straight down the ground

Australia 74/0   SR Watson 51* (27b 5x4 3x6)   GP Swann 0.5-0-24-0

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

Australia 81/0   SR Watson 57* (29b 6x4 3x6)   MH Yardy 1.2-0-14-0

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

Australia 92/1   DA Warner 30* (26b 5x4)   MH Yardy 2.3-0-23-1

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

Australia 112/2   DJ Hussey 17* (21b 1x4)   CR Woakes 3.3-0-31-0

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

Australia 126/3   AJ Finch 7* (5b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 2.2-0-16-0

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

Australia 155/4   SPD Smith 13* (10b 1x4)   A Shahzad 3.5-0-23-0
