14 January 2011 - night match (20-over match)
5.1

Bresnan to Warner, 1 run, short and pulled calmly through midwicket

5.2

Bresnan to Paine, 1 run, chopped out to point, and a bit of a scamper to make the non-striker's end

5.3

Bresnan to Warner, 1 run, clipped out to midwicket

5.4

Bresnan to Paine, FOUR, too short, and launched over point with an aggressive uppercut

5.5

Bresnan to Paine, no run, slower ball, a violent swing and a miss. The ball trickles past the leg stump, but Paine had made room so no wide

5.6

Bresnan to Paine, 1 run, excellent delivery, right into the blockhole, and punched into the covers

Australia 57/1   TT Bresnan 1-0-8-0
7.1

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, steered out to point, off the back foot

7.2

Bresnan to Hussey, 1 run, on the back foot, tapped to cover, and a quick single. Collingwood's shy hits the stumps, but he's home. Smart work though

7.3

Bresnan to Warner, 3 runs, heaved square, ungainly but effective, but good work on the rope from Morgan to save a single

7.4

Bresnan to Hussey, no run, lifter, very straight, and Hussey tries to loft that over the keeper's head, but can't make contact

7.5

Bresnan to Hussey, 1 run, chopped down to third man

7.6

Bresnan to Warner, 1 run, low full toss, pumped down the ground to mid-off. Good over from Bresnan

Australia 69/2   TT Bresnan 2-0-14-0
17.1

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, slower ball, there might be a few of those. Full and straight and worked to mid-on

17.2

Bresnan to Finch, 1 run, attempted yorker, tailing in from outside off, good delivery and even better fielding as Shahzad saves a certain four with a full-length dive at short third man

17.3

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, a leg-side waft, and Bell at short midwicket pounces to save the boundary. Sharp fielding as ever

17.4

Bresnan to Finch, 1 leg bye, slower-ball bouncer, and Finch top-edges that straight into his face! Lucky he's got a lid on ... good ball

17.5

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, another slower ball, guided straight to point

17.6

Bresnan to Finch, 1 leg bye, and another slower ball, another mow across the line, and a scrambled single as the shy comes in

Australia 124/5   TT Bresnan 3-0-18-0
19.1

Bresnan to O'Keefe, OUT, what on earth happened there? Ah, O'Keefe was bowled, that's what. An attempted Dilscoop, but he just ends up looking like a Dil, as his leg bail is removed by a length ball

SNJ O'Keefe b Bresnan 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

19.2

Bresnan to Johnson, 1 run, in the blockhole, flicked uppishly to deep square leg

19.3

Bresnan to Finch, 2 runs, waist-high full toss, clubbed out to midwicket, and they dash back for two. Bell's shy comes in on the bounce, which loses valuable seconds

19.4

Bresnan to Finch, 2 runs, another bosh across the line, picks the gap well, as two men converge to save the boundary

19.5

Bresnan to Finch, 2 runs, slower ball again, and that is a precious maiden fifty for the 24-year-old Victorian, Aaron Finch. Bill Lawry would be doing handstands, no doubt

19.6

Bresnan to Finch, 2 runs, smacked out to deep long on. Well played Finch, he's kept Australia afloat. England will need 148 to win. Exactly what they chased at Bridgetown in May, as it happens.

Australia 147/7   TT Bresnan 4-0-27-1
