Australia won by 4 runs
14 January 2011 - night match (20-over match)
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)   A Shahzad 1-0-9-0
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)   CR Woakes 2-0-17-0
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

Australia 37/0   DA Warner 20* (14b 3x4)   A Shahzad 1.5-0-20-0
5.4

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

Australia 56/1   TD Paine 15* (6b 1x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 0.4-0-7-0
6.2

Swann to Paine, FOUR, uses the feet well, and lofted handsomely over wide mid-on. The ball hits the rope as it lands

Australia 61/1   TD Paine 20* (10b 2x4 1x6)   GP Swann 0.2-0-4-0
12.2

Swann to Finch, FOUR, and there's the elusive boundary, a well-judged sweep through backward square

Australia 86/5   AJ Finch 9* (7b 1x4)   GP Swann 3.2-0-18-2
14.4

Pietersen to Finch, FOUR, off-line from Pietersen and that is firmly swept behind square

Australia 100/5   AJ Finch 16* (13b 2x4)   KP Pietersen 0.4-0-5-0
16.5

Pietersen to Finch, FOUR, cracked hard, up and over the covers. Excellent shot

Australia 118/5   AJ Finch 31* (22b 3x4 1x6)   KP Pietersen 1.5-0-17-0
18.1

Shahzad to Finch, FOUR, cracking strike. Anticipating pace, and turned his stance inside-out to lift the ball Dilshan-style over fine leg!

Australia 128/5   AJ Finch 36* (27b 4x4 1x6)   A Shahzad 2.1-0-24-0
