England in Australia ODI Series - 4th ODI

Australia v England

England won by 21 runs

1.1

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

1.2

Bollinger to Prior, no run, ooh, this is through Prior but somehow misses everything! It was full and swung back in late, Prior looked like he wanted to leave but then suddenly saw it swing back and tried to squeeze out a defence. It went through the gate and just about missed off stump

1.3

Bollinger to Prior, 2 runs, big swing again this time, Prior aims a defence and it slides off the inside-edge, trickling out to midwicket for a well-run couple

1.4

Bollinger to Prior, no run, no swing this time so Prior's leave alone outside off occurs with no alarms

1.5

Bollinger to Prior, FOUR, ah, lovely stuff. Full, wide half-volley asking to be dispatched and Prior loves a drive. He leant into it beautifully and stroked it to the cover rope

1.6

Bollinger to Prior, no run, steered backwards of square on the off side where it's smartly fielded

England 19/0   DE Bollinger 1-0-7-0

3.1

Bollinger to Prior, no run, Bollinger digs in a short ball that Prior turns this around the corner to the short fine leg fielder

3.2

Bollinger to Prior, no run, decent bounce for Bollinger from back of the length and Prior blocks to cover

3.3

Bollinger to Prior, no run, enough width for Prior to throw his arms, very flowing drive, but straight to cover

3.4

Bollinger to Prior, no run, Prior is again sturdy in defence

3.5

Bollinger to Prior, 1 run, good lengths and lines from Bollinger and Prior turns his wrists over the ball to send it to midwicket

3.6

Bollinger to Trott, no run, Bollinger hangs the ball around off stump and Trott blocks before continuing with his main reason for being out there - marking his guard

England 26/1   DE Bollinger 2-0-8-0

5.1

Bollinger to Trott, no run, Bollinger bangs in a short ball, rather that stand tall and thwack it over third man, Trott eases out the way of it. Good choice I suspect

5.2

Bollinger to Trott, no run, much fuller this time and despite it being outside off stump, Trott works it to leg

5.3

Bollinger to Trott, no run, good line from Bollinger, very straight, good length too. Trott can do nothing but defend

5.4

Bollinger to Trott, no run, Trott does play this on the off side, driving without much timing to mid-off

5.5

Bollinger to Trott, no run, Bollinger giving Trott no width at all and from back of a length Trott has no option but to defend

5.6

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, this time there is a hint of width which allows Trott to dab a single to third man

England 33/1   DE Bollinger 3-0-9-0

7.1

Bollinger to Prior, FOUR, wow, shades of Haddin here as Prior gets down the wicket and gives himself room outside leg to smash this over mid-off and it lands just inside the rope

7.2

Bollinger to Prior, FOUR, four more! Nicely done from Prior, gets his the room outside off that is his lifeblood, and thumps it through cover

7.3

Bollinger to Prior, 1 run, Bollinger's response is to bang it in short and Prior mistimes a pull, comes high off the bat and trickles to midwicket

7.4

Bollinger to Trott, FOUR, too full from Bollinger, and Trott times his off-side push ideally and the ball seems to gather pace on its way to the rope

7.5

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, Bollinger returns to a good length and line and Trott dabs a single behind square on the off side

7.6

Bollinger to Prior, no run, good slower ball beats Prior outside off

34.3

Bollinger to Morgan, no run, Bollinger finds an ideal off-stump line and Morgan gets everything behind his block

34.4

Bollinger to Morgan, no run, Morgan hasn't looked at his best this series but his back-foot drive here really pings to cover

34.5

Bollinger to Morgan, no run, cracker from Bollinger! Back of a length and the harder new ball zips away and climbs past the outside edge

34.6

Bollinger to Morgan, no run, touch slower this time and the line remains impeccable, hugging off stump. Morgan defends to end a fine Bollinger over

England 194/4   DE Bollinger 5-0-25-0

36.1

Bollinger to Morgan, 1 run, Morgan skips down the wicket at Bollinger, who bangs it in short in response, Morgan then guides an uppish cut to third man

36.2

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, Bollinger's good line means Trott can only open the face to third man

36.3

Bollinger to Morgan, 1 run, ooh, Bollinger bangs in a short ball that Morgan tries to pull. Didn't get anything of it and it spooned just over midwicket

36.4

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, Trott dabs another single to third man, giving himself a bit of room to play the shot

36.5

Bollinger to Morgan, 1 run, Hussey fields very smartly at midwicket, saving Morgan's well-timed flick and the batsmen scamper through

36.6

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, after giving himself room outside leg this time Trott reverts to his more customary move, outside off, and working to midwicket to bring up the 50 stand

England 208/4   DE Bollinger 6-0-31-0

38.1

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, fullish ball is pushed to cover for a scampered single

38.4

Bollinger to Trott, no run, good line and length from Bollinger and solidly blocked to point

38.5

Bollinger to Trott, no run, oops, full toss that seems to surprise Trott. It was quite a high full toss and Trott couldn't take advantage, mistiming to mid-off

38.6

Bollinger to Trott, 1 run, better timing on this drive but mid-off is back allowing a single. Time for the Powerplay methinks

England 224/4   DE Bollinger 7-0-34-0

43.1

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

43.2

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

43.3

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

43.4

Bollinger to Collingwood, 2 runs, Collingwood bounds down the wicket again and heaves across the line, no great timing but the intent is right and he gets a couple to deep midwicket

43.5

Bollinger to Collingwood, 1 run, Collingwood is again down the wicket but Bollinger adjusts well and prods a single to cover

43.6

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   DE Bollinger 8-0-41-0

45.1

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

45.2

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

45.3

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

45.4

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

45.5

Bollinger to Collingwood, FOUR, ah, Collingwood middles another! Plays this really well. Down the wicket and eased, rather than slugged, to the long-on boundary

45.6

Bollinger to Collingwood, 1 wide, Bollinger is struggling this over, and shoves this a long, long way outside off stump

45.6
