England tour of Australia, 4th ODI: Australia v England at Adelaide, Jan 26, 2011
England won by 21 runs
Played at Adelaide Oval
26 January 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Lee to Strauss, 5 wides, oops, that will help England. Lee swings this a long way down the leg side, too far for Haddin to catch up with and it runs away for five wides. Still, swing there at least


Lee to Strauss, no run, better delivery this time, would be difficult not to be, outside off stump and Strauss leans forward to hang his bat inside the line


Lee to Strauss, 2 runs, nudged, fiddled and nurdled off the pads towards midwicket. Still a touch of swing for Lee


Lee to Strauss, no run, no swing from this length - too short - but the line is impeccable and Strauss stands tall to defend


Lee to Strauss, 1 run, shortish again, this time the line is wider, and Strauss, unusually for him, mistimes a cut shot. Earns a single wide of cover to bring Prior on strike against Lee

England 8/0   AJ Strauss 3* (4b)

Bollinger to Strauss, 1 run, races in as always and starts well - up and around off stump - Strauss drives without much timing, wide of mid-off for a jogged single

England 13/0   AJ Strauss 4* (5b)

Lee to Strauss, no run, strangled appeal as Strauss inside-edges a loose drive into his pads. Good delivery, nipped back from a full length


Lee to Strauss, no run, whoosh, bit of a flat-foot swish outside off. Not a great shot but it excited Lee enough to have a chirp. Strauss is utterly unmoved as always


Lee to Strauss, no run, back of a length this time and Strauss solidly blocks back at the bowler


Lee to Strauss, FOUR, flash and four! Not entirely middled but Strauss really threw his arms at it and it cleared point and sped to the boundary


Lee to Strauss, OUT, that's all for Strauss, Lee gets his man! Another flat-footed swipe outside off stump, finds a thickish edge that Haddin gleefully collects. It was short and wide but not for the first time today Strauss missed the cut shot he normally nails

AJ Strauss c †Haddin b Lee 8 (13m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

England 23/1   AJ Strauss 8 (10b 1x4)
