26 January 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Hussey to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy plonks his first ball through mid-off for a single


Hussey to Yardy, no run, Yardy gets a straight ball that is defended very, very carefully

England 229/6   MH Yardy 1* (2b)

Lee to Yardy, 1 run, very full from Lee, good line too and Yardy can only squeeze a single to third man


Lee to Yardy, 2 runs, some late inswing takes this towards Yard's pads and he flicks towards fine leg where Cameron white scoots around and slides to field


Lee to Yardy, 1 run, full again, excellent over really, and Yardy can only bunt to cover

England 235/6   MH Yardy 5* (5b)

Bollinger to Yardy, no run, good start from Bollinger, haring in and landing it on a length, worked to midwicket


Bollinger to Yardy, FOUR, too short from Bollinger, width too, Yardy upper-cuts with enough top edge to beat the sliding fielder at third man


Bollinger to Yardy, 1 leg bye, fuller this time, much better, and it thuds off the pads


Bollinger to Yardy, no run, Yardy gets down very early to try and dab a poke sweep, crashes into the ribs and Bollinger, oddly, appeals

England 243/6   MH Yardy 9* (9b 1x4)

Lee to Yardy, 2 runs, slower bouncer and Yardy has to wait and wait to slog this to midwicket


Lee to Yardy, no run, Yardy gives himself room outside leg and tries to carve it away, goes too far though and can't reach it


Lee to Yardy, FOUR, ugly, but it does the trick. Yardy again giving himself plenty of room and the carve is toe-ended past the keeper to the third man rope


Lee to Yardy, 1 run, full toss on the pads and Yardy wheels it towards deep square

England 257/6   MH Yardy 16* (13b 2x4)

Bollinger to Yardy, FOUR, this Yardy innings is beginning to flow. Bollinger lands just short of a good length and Yardy is deep into his crease to shove it to the midwicket rope, timed it well


Bollinger to Yardy, no run, cut firmly but straight to point. Collingwood wants one but is rightly sent back


Bollinger to Yardy, FOUR, Yardy stepped back and Bollinger responded but going full, but overcooked it and a full toss was slapped straight of deep midwicket for four


Bollinger to Yardy, 1 run, this time it's worked with a bit of edge into the off side

England 266/6   MH Yardy 25* (17b 4x4)

Watson to Yardy, no run, Yardy down the wicket and throwing his arms at the ball, doesn't time it at all and it trickles to cover. England though about a single but there was none there


Watson to Yardy, 1 run, good full length here, slower too, and difficult to get away. Driven without much timing to long-off


Watson to Yardy, 1 leg bye, another appeal from Watson as a fullish ball gets Yardy on the pads as he tried to flick around the corner

England 274/6   MH Yardy 26* (20b 4x4)

Hussey to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy gives himself room to smack to cover for a swift single

England 281/6   MH Yardy 27* (21b 4x4)

Watson to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy down on one knee trying to poke a sweep fine but gets too much of it and it goes to fine leg


Watson to Yardy, 1 run, Yardy's lack of timing saves him here as the drive goes one-bounce to deepish mid-off

England 289/7   MH Yardy 29* (23b 4x4)

Hussey to Yardy, FOUR, excellent shot from Yardy, really top stuff. Down the wicket and giving himself room to drive into a gap wide of long-off for four. This is turning into an unlikely gem of an innings


Hussey to Yardy, 1 run, this is horridly timed down the ground, trickling to long-on


Hussey to Yardy, FOUR, Yardy is down the wicket, giving himself some room and drives excellently down the ground and times it well enough to run for four


Hussey to Yardy, 1 run, this is shoved in very short and Yardy should have got more, in the end he belted a pull shot to deep midwicket. Leaves Tremlett to try and bring up the 300

England 299/8   MH Yardy 39* (27b 6x4)
