0.1

Woakes to Warner, no run, Full and flat, a low full-toss outside off. Clubbed back to the bowler

0.2

0.4

Woakes to Warner, 1 run, slower ball, patted into a gap at short cover, and Warner is away

0.6

Woakes to Warner, no run, a swing and a miss, good line and length from Woakes, and that's a very tidy first over

Australia 2/0   DA Warner 1* (5b)
1.4

Shahzad to Warner, 2 runs, a steepling chance! Way, way up into the air, and if this was the Telstra Dome, or whatever it's now called, that would have hit the roof. Right underneath the ball with that shot, but Bresnan at mid-on never looked like getting close as the ball swirled over his head

1.5

Shahzad to Warner, 2 runs, on the hips, tucked away fine

1.6

Shahzad to Warner, FOUR, on the pads, and that's Australia's first boundary. Shahzad speared the ball wide, but Warner was alert to it and made good contact. The outfield can't deny him either

Australia 11/0   DA Warner 9* (8b 1x4)
2.3

Woakes to Warner, 2 runs, boshed out to deep midwicket, but the sweeper is in place

2.4

Woakes to Warner, 1 run, punched into the covers off the back foot

2.6

Woakes to Warner, FOUR, opens the stance, and that's a quality punched drive, up and over mid-on, and rocketing to the fence before the sweeper can intercept. A fine over for Australia

Australia 26/0   DA Warner 16* (11b 2x4)
3.3

Shahzad to Warner, no run, driven again, into the covers

3.4

Shahzad to Warner, no run, slower ball, well disguised, and Warner's attempted swipe is mistimed out to short cover

3.5

Shahzad to Warner, FOUR, bouncer, pretty well directed to be honest, but Warner was equal to it, helping round the corner and one bounce over the rope at fine leg

3.6

Shahzad to Warner, no run, right up in the blockhole, and punched to mid-off to finish

9.2

Yardy to Warner, OUT, tame end for Warner as he plays an unbalanced sliced loft down the ground, which Pietersen intercepts on the boundary's edge. Vital strike again from England, who are battling back now
