England in Australia ODI Series - 5th ODI

Australia v England

Australia won by 51 runs

0.1

Anderson to Watson, FOUR, Watson gets Australia off the mark with a boundary! A fine start as he reaches across to whip a lovely cover drive through the gap along the ground

0.2

Anderson to Watson, no run, fullish and swinging away, and Watson punches back past the bowler

0.3

Anderson to Watson, no run, a tighter line now from Anderson and Watson defends with bat and pad close together

0.4

Anderson to Watson, 2 runs, another good cover drive, although this one has clunked a bit and hasn't been timed properly, it's chased down and they pick up two

0.5

Anderson to Watson, no run, good ball, just straightening a touch without being prodigious outswing, and Watson defends

0.6

Anderson to Watson, no run, defended again to the off side

Australia 6/0   SR Watson 6* (6b 1x4)

1.2

Shahzad to Watson, 1 run, again it's the wrong line as Shahzad swings it well down leg, Watson clips it away for a single

1.6

Shahzad to Watson, no run, good ball, nipping in off a good length and Watson keeps it out

Australia 10/0   SR Watson 7* (8b 1x4)

2.5

Anderson to Watson, 1 run, angling in to the pads of Watson, who nudges a quick single through midwicket

Australia 16/0   SR Watson 8* (9b 1x4)

4.6

Anderson to Watson, FOUR, Watson hasn't had much of the strike the past couple of overs and he doesn't waste this delivery! Anderson dropped just a touch short and Watson lashed a pull forward of midwicket, super timing and that was always a boundary

Australia 25/0   SR Watson 12* (10b 2x4)

5.5

Shahzad to Watson, 1 run, angles on to the pads of Watson, who gently clips a single to midwicket

Australia 31/0   SR Watson 13* (11b 2x4)

6.1

Finn to Watson, no run, fullish length to start with and Watson drives it back to the bowler

6.2

Finn to Watson, no run, good line right on off stump and Watson punches to cover

6.3

Finn to Watson, no run, Finn goes really full again, Watson crunches it back over the bowler's head on the bounce but it's collected safely by mid-off

6.4

Finn to Watson, 1 run, this one is driven harder along the ground past the bowler but it's only a single as Pietersen at mid-off does well to dive across and save this

Australia 32/0   SR Watson 14* (15b 2x4)

7.1

Shahzad to Watson, 1 run, soft hands from Watson as he gets a single with a push towards gully

Australia 34/0   SR Watson 15* (16b 2x4)

8.1

Finn to Watson, no run, there's an lbw shout as Finn angles it in to Watson, but Rod Tucker isn't interested. It looked to be sliding down leg but Strauss wants a review. Hmm, it's hit him in line but he's quite a way forward, and the replays confirm that is missing leg. So England have lost one of their two reviews.

8.2

Finn to Watson, 1 run, Finn tries for the yorker again but it's just a touch half-volleyish and Watson drives a single wide of mid-off

Australia 44/0   SR Watson 16* (18b 2x4)

9.1

Woakes to Watson, no run, Watson pushes to off, can't find the gap

9.2

Woakes to Watson, OUT, Woakes strikes! Watson goes for a hard cut behind point but he's picked out Collingwood, whose reflexes have not dulled at all! He takes a really good, sharp catch and Watson is on his way

SR Watson c Collingwood b Woakes 16 (41m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Australia 48/1   SR Watson 16 (20b 2x4)
