England tour of Australia, 1st ODI: Australia v England at Melbourne, Jan 16, 2011
Australia won by 6 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
16 January 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

DJ Hussey to Davies, OUT, and that's exactly what Hussey has produced. Davies' lottery run comes to an end. Hussey's speared this in off a round-arm, flat from wide of the crease, round the wicket, and it straightens past an attempted mow through cow corner and clattered into the furniture. Australia will breathe easier now.

SM Davies b DJ Hussey 42 (58m 35b 5x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

England 90/1   AJ Strauss 42* (39b 5x4)   DJ Hussey 1.1-0-8-1

DJ Hussey to Trott, OUT, a smart catch from Haddin ends Trott's innings, a short of length ball pitches outside off and turns in gently, Trott is on the back foot quickly and looks to guide it towards third man, gets an outside edge and Haddin snaps it up, Hussey helping Australia pull things back, not doing his World Cup chances any harm here

IJL Trott c †Haddin b DJ Hussey 6 (8m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

England 100/2   AJ Strauss 46* (45b 5x4)   DJ Hussey 2.2-0-10-2

Lee to Strauss, OUT, that's the end of Strauss, Lee strikes, a short of length ball around middle, Strauss was initially looking to pull that to square leg, then decides to play with a straight bat, the ball loops off the bat towards midwicket where Clarke is waiting

AJ Strauss c Clarke b Lee 63 (90m 65b 6x4 0x6) SR: 96.92

England 131/3   KP Pietersen 14* (18b 1x4)   B Lee 4.4-0-21-1

Smith to Bell, OUT, soft dismissal that, Smith has struck, a length ball, Bell was looking to chip it inside-out over extra cover, he doesn't get the height he wanted, ends up hitting it towards Clarke at extra cover, a threatening partnership has been broken

IR Bell c Clarke b Smith 23 (38m 32b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.87

England 174/4   KP Pietersen 33* (43b 1x4)   SPD Smith 1.1-0-3-1

Smith to Morgan, OUT, Smith has another, a short of length ball, Morgan played that off the back foot after making room, he jabs it hard but in the air and towards White at short cover, White dives to his right to snap that up, that's another wicket and Australia are the team with the edge now, England have frittered that powerful start, Pietersen needs to play a big innings now

EJG Morgan c White b Smith 8 (9m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 186/5   KP Pietersen 37* (47b 1x4)   SPD Smith 2.5-0-12-2

Bollinger to Yardy, OUT, finally Yardy perishes to the pull, he has mishit several of them today, this time he gets hold of it and it carries only as far as Michael Hussey at deep midwicket

MH Yardy c MEK Hussey b Bollinger 9 (37m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

England 236/6   KP Pietersen 72* (67b 2x4 3x6)   DE Bollinger 7.4-0-50-1

Johnson to Bresnan, OUT, superb work from Johnson, Pietersen's run-out, massive blow for England, Johnson might be having a tough time with the ball, but don't question his footballing skills, he bangs in a short ball, Bresnan looks to pull it, he misses and the ball hits him on the chest and rolls to the leg side, KP is very keen on a single and calls Bresnan though, Johnson races towards the ball and right-foots it onto the stumps, catching Pietersen well short

KP Pietersen run out 78 (128m 75b 2x4 3x6) SR: 104.00

England 257/7   TT Bresnan 15* (16b 2x4)   MG Johnson 4.4-0-35-0

Lee to Bresnan, OUT, short and outside off, Bresnan looks to slash that one, gets a top-edge which sails to Doherty at third man, Lee is thrilled as he thought he had Davies caught at third man earlier before replays showed he had overstepped, no such worries this time

TT Bresnan c Doherty b Lee 28 (31m 27b 4x4 0x6) SR: 103.70

England 271/8   GP Swann 1* (5b)   B Lee 7.2-0-33-2

Johnson to Swann, OUT, and another catch for Doherty, can England play out the 50 overs? there have inly one wicket left now as Swann holes out, a slower ball from Johnson, Swann looks to clear the in-field but can't chip it past Doherty at mid-on

GP Swann c Doherty b Johnson 4 (19m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

England 278/9   A Shahzad 1* (4b)   MG Johnson 6.5-0-44-1

Johnson to Tremlett, OUT, the end of the innings, Tremlett had cleared the front leg to attempt another monster hit, it was a short of length ball from Johnson, takes the top edge and goes through at a nice height to Haddin

CT Tremlett c †Haddin b Johnson 7 (10m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 87.50

England 294/10   A Shahzad 8* (7b 1x6)   MG Johnson 7.4-0-53-2
