England in Australia T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Australia v England

Australia won by 4 runs

9.1

Yardy to Warner, no run, Warner was looking for a leg-side wide there, but he accidentally got his pad in the way

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

DA Warner c Pietersen b Yardy 30 (41m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 115.38

9.3

Yardy to Hussey, no run, attempted swish back past the bowler, but Yardy pounces in his followthrough

9.4

Yardy to Hussey, no run, good flight, and White is beaten off the pitch

9.5

Yardy to Hussey, 1 run, stabbed into space at mid-on, off the back foot

9.6

Yardy to White, no run, calm work from Yardy. A good length tweaker that White can only defend with a vertical bat

Australia 73/3   MH Yardy 1-0-1-1

11.1

Yardy to Hussey, no run, in the blockhole, driven back to the bowler

11.2

Yardy to Hussey, 1 run, tapped with a closed face, down to long-on

11.3

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, smacked down to deep cover

11.4

Yardy to Hussey, 2 runs, on the toes, flicked out to deep midwicket

11.5

Yardy to Hussey, OUT, short this time, but it's a rare bad ball that is too eagerly accepted by Hussey. A greedy slap to deep midwicket, where Woakes makes no mistake!

DJ Hussey c Woakes b Yardy 8 (18m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

11.6

Yardy to Smith, no run, good turn on a middle-stump line. Australia haven't scored a boundary for nearly six overs

Australia 80/5   MH Yardy 2-0-5-2

13.1

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, wide and walloped, out to deep point

13.2

Yardy to Smith, 2 runs, worked into space at deep midwicket, good running brings two as the shy comes in

13.3

Yardy to Smith, 1 run, worked off the pads to square leg. No second run there

13.4

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, outside off, pushed out to deep cover

13.5

Yardy to Smith, 2 runs, excellent running makes two from nothing as a push to mid-on finds the smallest of gaps, beyond Yardy's reach, and short of the in-rushing KP

13.6

Yardy to Smith, 1 run, Smith keeps the strike as Australia prepare for their final onslaught.

Australia 95/5   MH Yardy 3-0-13-2

15.1

Yardy to Smith, 1 run, clipped to midwicket

15.2

Yardy to Finch, 2 runs, on the toes, flicked very fine and they come back for the second

15.3

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, leg stump line again, backward square tidies up

15.4

Yardy to Smith, 1 run, open-faced drive, out to extra cover

15.5

Yardy to Finch, 1 run, very full length, dug out of the blockhole, fielded at mid-on

15.6

Yardy to Smith, no run, heroic mow to a wide delivery, but that one eludes the bat. Yardy finishes with the second 4-0-19-2 analysis of the evening. Top drawer

Australia 108/5   MH Yardy 4-0-19-2
