England in Australia ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Australia v England

Australia won by 46 runs

6.3

Shahzad to White, no run, fullish ball and White keeps it out

6.4

Shahzad to White, no run, pushed back down past the bowler to mid-on

6.5

Shahzad to White, no run, probing outside off, White gets across with a big stride and defends

6.6

Shahzad to White, no run, bouncer! And it's quick, straight, and probably just a touch too high to really threaten White, who goes for the hook but can't connect

Australia 15/2   CL White 0* (4b)

7.3

Tremlett to White, no run, White pushes this one to off, good consistent lines from Tremlett

7.4

Tremlett to White, no run, yeee-ouch! Tremlett uses his height to bang this one in short and White tries to defend, but cops it on the right hand, yanking it off the bat and takes the glove off immediately. The physio comes out to have a look. And for some reason Kevin Pietersen is supervising, patting White on the shoulder.

7.5

Tremlett to White, no run, pushed out to the off side and can't find the gap

7.6

Tremlett to White, no run, on the back foot, White defends

Australia 16/2   CL White 0* (8b)

8.5

Shahzad to White, no run, White hangs the bat out at this one and defends to cover

8.6

Shahzad to White, no run, and this one is left alone

Australia 21/2   CL White 0* (10b)

10.1

Shahzad to White, 1 wide, bad ball, way down leg side and there's no doubt that's a wide

10.1

Shahzad to White, 1 run, driven just wide of mid-off to get a single

10.3

Shahzad to White, no run, yorker but it's not on line, and White pushes to point

10.4

Shahzad to White, no run, there's an appeal now as White pushes outside off and the ball is taken by Prior, but Tony Hill isn't interested and it didn't look like an edge at first view - replays confirm bat hit pad

10.5

Shahzad to White, 1 run, White throws the bat now as he gets a wider and fuller one, getting it uppishly to third man and it's collected inside the boundary

Australia 25/3   CL White 2* (14b)

11.1

Bresnan to White, no run, angled in to White, who pushes to the leg side

11.2

Bresnan to White, no run, nudged away to point and White thinks of a single until Hussey roars a 'nooooo!'

11.3

Bresnan to White, no run, defended back down the pitch

11.4

Bresnan to White, 1 run, driven off the back foot and White didn't quite control that, edging it through the vacant gully region and way to third man

Australia 30/3   CL White 3* (18b)

12.5

Tremlett to White, no run, White watches this one through to Prior as it moves away off the seam

12.6

Tremlett to White, no run, nudged towards the leg side

Australia 34/4   CL White 3* (20b)

13.4

Bresnan to White, no run, bouncer, and White ducks under it - that's another one that is lucky not to have been called a wide

13.5

Bresnan to White, no run, pushed to short cover and can't beat the field

13.6

Bresnan to White, no run, oooh, White slashes at one wide of off and tries to cut hard, but it bounces more than expected and is taken by Prior

Australia 35/4   CL White 3* (23b)

14.3

Tremlett to White, no run, clunked away to mid-off

14.4

Tremlett to White, 1 run, oh, here's a chance, White pulls and top edges high - high - high - and out to square leg, Prior races across and tries to make the ground, hurls himself at the last moment but falls a few inches short of getting his gloves on it. Perhaps he could have left that for fine leg or midwicket running around, but it was a good effort nonetheless

Australia 37/4   CL White 4* (25b)

15.1

Bresnan to White, 1 run, nudged away off the pads through square leg

15.6

Bresnan to White, no run, pushed back down the pitch defensively

Australia 41/4   CL White 5* (27b)

16.2

Tremlett to White, 1 run, Tremlett pings another down from 12 ft, hitting back of a length and White finds an inside edge that squirts down to midwicket

Australia 43/4   CL White 6* (28b)

17.1

Bresnan to White, no run, Bresnan has been fuller than Tremlett, suits him better and he lands this around off stump on a length, White eases forward to block

17.2

Bresnan to White, no run, ripper! Pitches on a length and skids away, White's feet are rooted and it climbs past the outside edge

17.3

Bresnan to White, 2 runs, good running earns a couple here, White glancing towards deep square and sprinting hard to come back for the second

17.4

Bresnan to White, 1 run, a misfield! Don't see many from England. Bell is the villain, diving over the ball at short cover to gift a single

17.6

Bresnan to White, 1 run, worked away for another single towards square leg

Australia 50/4   CL White 10* (33b)

18.1

Trott to White, no run, starts with a gentle, wobbling medium-pacer aiming for around off stump. White defends rather respectfully

18.2

Trott to White, 2 runs, no more respect from White! He aims an almighty drive down-town, as Australians like to say, didn't get much of it and it went very high, Tremlett hared after it but couldn't quite catch up

18.3

Trott to White, no run, this time it's back to careful defence

18.4

Trott to White, no run, White aims a mow. Horrid shot really, flat-footed swipe. He momentarily dragged his foot out before grounding it back in the crease. Prior had the bails off to all sorts of excitement but the third umpire confirmed White was home

18.5

Trott to White, FOUR, finally White gets hold of one. I don't think he can stomach the prospect of Trott trundling in and bowling dot balls so aims a well-timed lofted drive well over mid-on for four

18.6

Trott to White, no run, satisfied with his boundary White is happy to nudge this into the leg side. He might have combusted if he didn't get one away off Trott

Australia 56/4   CL White 16* (39b 1x4)

19.6

Tredwell to White, no run, good finish to the over for Tredwell, rolling it down on a sensible length and line and it's patted back to him. Sensible seems the word for Tredwell

Australia 63/4   CL White 16* (40b 1x4)

20.2

Trott to White, 1 run, White's bat is looking a touch broader now and he full-faces this down the ground

20.4

Trott to White, no run, Trott finds a straight line and good length. White steps forward to defend

20.5

Trott to White, no run, more good lengths and lines from Trott. White picks out Strauss with a leg-side nudge

20.6

Trott to White, 1 run, White has seen enough so aims a drive here, timing it not quite perfectly but well enough to pick a single down to long-on

Australia 67/4   CL White 18* (44b 1x4)

21.1

Tredwell to White, no run, hint of spin here as Tredwell rolls it down on a length, it unnerves White a touch in defence

21.2

Tredwell to White, 1 run, more secure for White this time, easing down to long-on

21.5

Tredwell to White, no run, Tredwell holds this back a touch and White has plenty of time to aim a cut, too much time in fact and he mistimes it

21.6

Tredwell to White, no run, ooh, looked a good shout as White misses an attempted sweep. Probably hit outside the line. England opted not to review

Australia 69/4   CL White 19* (48b 1x4)

22.2

Trott to White, 2 runs, full-faced chip-drive from White, clearing the infield to take a couple

22.3

Trott to White, 1 run, touch leg-sided from Trott allows White to lean this into the midwicket region. Steady flow of runs since the quicks left the attack

22.5

Trott to White, no run, Trott is rewarded for a good length and line, cutting his fingers across the ball, with a forward block

22.6

Trott to White, 1 run, soft hands is not something you think of when talking about White but this was rather delicately placed behind square on the leg side for a strike-stealing single

Australia 75/4   CL White 23* (52b 1x4)

23.1

Tredwell to White, no run, patted back to Tredwell

23.2

Tredwell to White, FOUR, aimed wide of off but White was on the move, heading even further outside off to hammer a sweep fine of deep square for four

23.3

Tredwell to White, 1 run, White gets deep into his crease to punch a drive wide of extra cover for one

23.5

Tredwell to White, 1 run, another delicate touch from White, uses the slightest hint of width to run a back-cut to third man. Fancy shot for one

Australia 82/4   CL White 29* (56b 2x4)

24.2

Yardy to White, 1 run, starts a touch too short to the right hander and White picks out point with a cut. Trott threw it back poorly to Prior who couldn't take it and allowed an overthrow

Australia 85/4   CL White 30* (57b 2x4)

25.3

Tredwell to White, 1 run, touch too short from Tredwell but it's sticking in the pitch and White has to heave his cut shot, means the timing isn't ideal so it's just a single to deep point

25.5

Tredwell to White, no run, big gap either side of Bell at short midwicket but White's leg-side nurdle finds the man

25.6

Tredwell to White, no run, hint of turn and extra bounce keeps White careful as he works this to Bell again at short midwicket

Australia 89/4   CL White 31* (60b 2x4)

26.3

Yardy to White, 1 run, White looking to give himself room, Yardy doesn't let him so it's worked to leg for one

26.5

Yardy to White, no run, again White wants room to bang over cover, but Yardy is following him, taking pace off the ball and White has to force a back-foot drive to cover

26.6

Yardy to White, 1 run, same set up as last delivery really, intriguing little battle, White this time gets a single down to long-off with his back-foot drive

Australia 93/4   CL White 33* (63b 2x4)

27.1

Tredwell to White, 1 run, White gets deep into his crease to really heave a cut shot, all for a single to deep point

27.4

Tredwell to White, 1 run, White pushes down the ground, no fuss, but a very safe single

Australia 96/4   CL White 35* (65b 2x4)

28.5

Yardy to White, 1 run, White trades another single, gently patted to long-on

Australia 107/4   CL White 36* (66b 2x4)

29.1

Tredwell to White, 1 run, White does the sensible thing and pats a single into space to bring Marsh back on strike

29.4

Tredwell to White, 1 run, White repeats the dose, driving carefully down to long-on

Australia 114/4   CL White 38* (68b 2x4)

30.2

Yardy to White, 1 run, flick of the wrists earns White a single towards square leg

Australia 119/4   CL White 39* (69b 2x4)

31.4

Shahzad to White, no run, straight onto the ideal off-stump line to the right-hander this time. White securely behind it to defend

31.5

Shahzad to White, 1 run, too much width allows White to free his arms with a back-foot drive, only earns a single but he's a good wingman for Marsh at the moment

Australia 122/4   CL White 40* (71b 2x4)

32.1

Yardy to White, no run, slow and loopy from Yardy, which is rare. Marsh defends carefully

32.2

Yardy to White, 1 wide, White lines up a reverse-sweep, Yardy responds by shoving it too far down the leg side

32.2

Yardy to White, no run, blocked carefully off the back foot to cover

32.3

Yardy to White, 1 run, White edges down the wicket, lining up a booming drive before deciding on a more careful pat

32.5

Yardy to White, FOUR, ah this is a wonderful, wonderful shot. Easing down the track and rather than smack it, White picked out a gap wide of long-off and timed it away for four

32.6

Yardy to White, OUT, Yardy strikes, soft dismissal that. Held back and tossed up from the bowler, White was a touch early on a drive but rather than go through with the shot he checked it, chipped it back wide of Yardy who dived smartly to his left to take the catch. England really needed that

CL White c & b Yardy 45 (106m 76b 3x4 0x6) SR: 59.21

Australia 133/5   CL White 45 (76b 3x4)
