England in Australia ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Australia v England

Australia won by 46 runs

0.1

Shahzad to Watson, no run, a little bit of swing in to Watson, who leaves it outside off

0.2

Shahzad to Watson, no run, right on target now, and Watson gets forward to defend

0.3

Shahzad to Watson, no run, again Watson goes with the straight bat, watchfully, as Shahzad angles in to off stump

0.4

Shahzad to Watson, no run, some swing away from the batsman now, and it's left to go through to Matt Prior

0.5

Shahzad to Watson, no run, banged in short of a length and it's moving in to Watson, who leaves it alone

0.6

Shahzad to Watson, no run, fuller and straighter, Watson drives clunkily to mid-on and can't find the gap

Australia 0/0   A Shahzad 1-1-0-0

2.1

Shahzad to Watson, FOUR, there's the first boundary of the day, but it wasn't exactly off the middle as Watson drove uppishly just wide of mid-off, it evaded the fielder and ran away safely

2.2

Shahzad to Watson, no run, left alone as this one nips back in and sails over the stumps

2.3

Shahzad to Watson, no run, bouncer and Watson swings wildy! He's tried to pull that, with so much effort that he's lucky not to have thrown his back out. In any case, the ball bounced more than he expected and sailed through to Prior

2.4

Shahzad to Watson, no run, jags back in off the seam and Watson gets an inside edge on to the pads

2.5

Shahzad to Watson, no run, Shahzad is getting good bounce here, and this one is cut by Watson close to his body, into the ground and straight to point

2.6

Shahzad to Watson, OUT, gone! Shahzad deserved that wicket, he'd been getting them nip back off the seam and this one does the same, Watson tries to open the face and run it to third man but only succeeds in playing on to his off stump

SR Watson b Shahzad 5 (12m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Australia 6/1   A Shahzad 2-1-4-1

4.1

Shahzad to Clarke, no run, defended edgily back down the pitch

4.2

Shahzad to Clarke, no run, good bounce and carry through to Prior as it's left alone outside off

4.3

Shahzad to Clarke, 1 run, nipping back in again and it's short of a length, Clarke thrusts the bat forward and gets a single off the inside edge away through square leg

4.4

Shahzad to Haddin, no run, bouncer and Prior does well to take that one. That was above head height, I think Shahzad is lucky that wasn't called a wide

4.5

Shahzad to Haddin, 2 runs, wider of off now and Haddin opens the face to guide this one through gully, and third man runs around to do the fielding

4.6

Shahzad to Haddin, no run, Haddin's had enough of being careful, he backs away and tries to drive down through cover but just finds mid off

Australia 11/1   A Shahzad 3-1-7-1

6.1

Shahzad to Haddin, 2 runs, Haddin works this one with the angle through midwicket, just finds the gap nicely

6.2

Shahzad to Haddin, OUT, Shahzad gets another one! Again he nips the ball back in, and Haddin drives at it, gets a thin edge back in on to his stumps and the seam movement has now done for both openers

BJ Haddin b Shahzad 5 (28m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

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   A Shahzad 4-1-9-2

8.1

Shahzad to Clarke, no run, pushed away to the off side

8.2

Shahzad to Clarke, FOUR, well played by Clarke, he's used his feet here to walk down the pitch and across outside off, and lifts this ball over wide midwicket, safely and timed well enough to reach the boundary

8.3

Shahzad to Clarke, no run, slower ball now and it's left alone outside off

8.4

Shahzad to Clarke, 1 run, punched off the back foot wide of cover and Clarke finds a single

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   A Shahzad 5-1-14-2

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

10.2

Shahzad to Hussey, 1 run, thickish inside edge gets Hussey off the mark through square leg and that's his first ODI run since August 2009

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

10.6

Shahzad to Hussey, FOUR, oh good shot! Short and wide, as was the ball that did for Clarke, but David Hussey cuts deliberately high over point and bounces that one safely away to the boundary

Australia 29/3   A Shahzad 6-1-22-2

31.1

Shahzad to Marsh, no run, starts very well, bang on target. Marsh has to hurry forward into a defence

31.2

Shahzad to Marsh, no run, good energy from Shahzad already, finding extra bounce from a length that jars the splice as Marsh defends

31.3

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 run, well played here, Marsh uses the fraction of width to angle this to third man

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

31.6

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 wide, oops, Shahzad gets his line wrong, slipping down the leg side

31.6

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 wide, and again! The crowd love it, which is a sign of the times. Shoved down the leg side again

31.6

Shahzad to Marsh, 2 runs, fifty for Marsh! Now the crowd have something to cheer about. Gets there in style too, clipping off his legs for a couple. Crucial fifty that off 64 deliveries

Australia 126/4   A Shahzad 7-1-28-2

33.1

Shahzad to Marsh, no run, this hurries Marsh in defence here, thudding into the pads

33.2

Shahzad to Marsh, 2 runs, eep, all the England supporters gasp as Tremlett dives to field smartly on the fine-leg boundary. Not a natural but good work to save a boundary as Marsh clipped off his pads

33.3

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 run, Shahzad around the wicket and finds an inside edge that bobbles off the body and Smith calls through a swift single

33.4

Shahzad to Smith, no run, ooh, Smith plays back to a full ball, gets into a strange position but defends well

33.5

Shahzad to Smith, OUT, another drag-on! Smith departs. Awful shot. Feet stuck in place and aiming a booming drive well wide of off, comes off the inside edge and cannons onto the stumps

SPD Smith b Shahzad 0 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

33.6

Shahzad to Hauritz, 1 run, starts with a thick outside edge that goes well wide of the newly-installed slip

Australia 137/6   A Shahzad 8-1-32-3

38.1

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 wide, wide down leg side to start with, and Marsh lets it through to Prior

38.1

Shahzad to Marsh, no run, pushed back down the pitch

38.2

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 wide, aaah, another wide down leg side, Shahzad hasn't got his line right in this over

38.2

Shahzad to Marsh, no run, better line now as it's full and straight, Marsh gets an inside edge onto the pad and it runs along the ground to Prior

38.3

Shahzad to Marsh, no run, ooh, Shahzad has dropped a tough return chance! Marsh drove it hard back at the bowler, who thrust his right hand out and couldn't hold on - not an easy one by any means but had that stuck it would have been massive trouble for Australia

38.4

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 run, Marsh cuts hard to point and they come through for a hesitant single, Morgan's throw at the bowler's end isn't accurate enough

38.5

Shahzad to Bollinger, no run, pushed to the off side

38.6

Shahzad to Bollinger, no run, thwacked into the pitch and back at the bowler! Dougie gets it off the middle, but Shahzad deflects the ball to mid-off and prevents a run

Australia 150/8   A Shahzad 9-1-35-3

40.1

Shahzad to Marsh, FOUR, and there's a boundary, we haven't seen many of them lately. It's swinging on to the pads, which has been a definite plan to Marsh, and he's flicked it through the gap at square leg along the ground, all the way to the boundary

40.2

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 run, drives down the ground this time, in the air and it bounces to long-on

40.3

Shahzad to Bollinger, 1 run, hmm, Bollinger has got away with one here, he's pulled and got a top edge that lobs safely in the infield. Not smart from Bollinger, with ten overs still to bat

40.4

Shahzad to Marsh, 4 leg byes, ah, four more runs now as Marsh just gets a bit of pad on this and it beats the diving Prior, and trickles away to the boundary

40.5

Shahzad to Marsh, 1 run, on the hips now and Marsh tickles it around the corner

40.6

Shahzad to Bollinger, 1 run, full and straight, Bollinger drives to mid-on and takes off for a quick single, keeping the strike. And the throw from mid-on hits the stumps and allows an overthrow, so in fact Marsh will have the strike. But what's happened here? Tony Hill might have called over already, so the overthrow has been disallowed.
