Played at Adelaide Oval
26 January 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Watson to Trott, no run, Trott on the go straight away, skipping down the wicket and aiming a whip to leg. Doesn't get any of it and is rewarded with a tirade from Haddin behind the stumps. Pleasant lad, that Haddin


Watson to Trott, no run, Trott again can't get this away as Watson's line is too good


Watson to Trott, 1 run, Trott shuffled to the leg side this time - which is odd. Gives himself enough room to work to third man


Watson to Prior, 1 run, Prior has looked typically busy and nudes a single to mid-on


Watson to Trott, no run, this will frustrate Trott. Gets his beloved leg-stump line but clips it straight to short midwicket


Watson to Trott, FOUR, Watson gives him a second opportunity and this time Trott makes no mistake, flicking it finer and it runs away to the square leg rope, beating the deep midwicket fielder

England 39/1   SR Watson 1-0-6-0

Watson to Trott, FOUR, wrong line again from Watson, bowling on Trott's pads with fine leg up makes no sense and Trott's flick beats the man and runs away to the boundary


Watson to Trott, 2 runs, better line, outside off stump and Trott aims a drive, slicing it and losing his bottom hand off the bat as he plays it. Finds a gap at cover


Watson to Trott, 1 run, again Watson explores Trott's pads and is predictably worked away through midwicket


Watson to Prior, 1 run, touch too straight from Watson and Prior mistimes a drive down the ground


Watson to Trott, 1 run, a hint of room outside off allows Trott to jab to third man


Watson to Prior, no run, Watson finishes the over much better than he started it, landing it on a fuller length and off stump

England 62/1   SR Watson 2-0-15-0

Watson to Trott, no run, Watson lands a straight ball that Trott tries to whip to leg but misses


Watson to Trott, no run, little bit short and a little bit wide and the cut shot finds point


Watson to Trott, 1 run, Trott flicks rather expansively but only for single to fine leg


Watson to Prior, 2 runs, wrong line from Watson around leg stump, Prior tries to whip it but gets more edge than middle


Watson to Prior, 1 run, again Watson is on the pads, desperate not to give Prior width outside off - Prior works it with his wrists to leg


Watson to Trott, 2 runs, good offcutter around off stump and Trott clamps down to run it to third man

England 71/1   SR Watson 3-0-21-0

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 Collingwood, no run, Collingwood again advances before trying to sweep/ramp it over short midwicket, the slower ball meant he was through it long before it arrived


Watson to Collingwood, 1 leg bye, charging down the track again and Collingwood tried to heave to leg. Missed and it struck him on the pads. Clarke calls for a review because it hit on the back leg, but outside off stump so never going to be at


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


Watson to Collingwood, 1 run, another slower ball the Collingwood slaps without much timing to deep mid-on

England 275/6   SR Watson 4-0-23-0

Watson to Shahzad, 2 runs, short ball from Watson, Shahzad gives himself room to wristily flick to past point


Watson to Shahzad, no run, this time Shahzad walks across his stumps but Watson follows and it's driven to cover


Watson to Shahzad, 1 run, another wristy drive but it slides off the edge past Haddin


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 Shahzad, 1 run, flicked airily, but straight to mid-on


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   SR Watson 5-0-29-0
