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

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

Australia 4/0   SR Watson 4* (1b 1x4)   JM Anderson 0.1-0-4-0

Anderson to Haddin, FOUR, that's a cracking, punchy off-drive from Haddin. Really terrific timing as he just leans in to that shot and pushes it back past the bowler, Pietersen at mid-off dives across and can't save it, though he perhaps should have

Australia 14/0   BJ Haddin 5* (7b 1x4)   JM Anderson 1.3-0-10-0

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)   JM Anderson 3-0-19-0

Shahzad to Haddin, FOUR, well played, though it was a bad ball, short and down leg, and Haddin just helps this on its way over the leg gully and there's nobody at fine leg who can save this boundary

Australia 29/0   BJ Haddin 13* (23b 2x4)   A Shahzad 2.3-0-9-0

Shahzad to Haddin, FOUR, Haddin has got tired of waiting and backs off a touch to slash an upper cut over point, racing away to the boundary. The ball was short and wide enough to justify that shot, and he played it well

Australia 38/0   BJ Haddin 18* (29b 3x4)   A Shahzad 3.3-0-16-0

Shahzad to Haddin, FOUR, and another boundary, though this one was a more genuine edge. But he went hard, and it flew over the vacant second slip area - he'd have to have been Joel Garner to have any hope, even if there was a man there - and it bounces away to third man

Australia 42/0   BJ Haddin 22* (30b 4x4)   A Shahzad 3.4-0-20-0

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, ah, Finn gives Haddin just a little width outside off and Haddin backs off a touch to slash a cut over point, really well played

Australia 48/0   BJ Haddin 26* (35b 5x4)   ST Finn 1.5-0-7-0

Woakes to Haddin, FOUR, cracker! Haddin gets tired of this and gives himself some room and then powers this back over the bowler's head, and that is timed so well as it races away to the boundary straight back down the ground

Australia 67/1   BJ Haddin 32* (47b 6x4)   CR Woakes 2.3-0-11-1

Finn to Haddin, FOUR, fullish ball and Haddin tries to muscle this drive over mid-off, Pietersen is back on the circle and it's just gone safely wide of him in the air - it still wasn't timed that well but Pietersen's chase can't cut it off - he was going to dive and then decided not to

Australia 72/1   BJ Haddin 37* (50b 7x4)   ST Finn 4.2-0-17-0

Finn to Clarke, FOUR, another crisp shot, Clarke leans forward and across to flick a full ball with terrific timing between mid-on and midwicket

Australia 84/2   MJ Clarke 7* (4b 1x4)   ST Finn 5.1-0-22-1

Finn to Clarke, FOUR, slapped, Clarke backs away to make room and goes hard at a short ball, flaying it through cover with power and timing

Australia 92/2   MJ Clarke 13* (12b 2x4)   ST Finn 6.5-0-28-1

Finn to Clarke, FOUR, straight this time, Clarke punches down the ground off the front foot, between the stumps and the non-striker and his timing is outstanding

Australia 96/2   MJ Clarke 17* (13b 3x4)   ST Finn 7-0-32-1

Woakes to White, FOUR, was that edged or steered? A bit of both perhaps but he placed it fine past the wicketkeeper to the third-man boundary

Australia 101/3   CL White 4* (7b 1x4)   CR Woakes 3.3-0-17-1

Collingwood to White, FOUR, driven fluently off the front foot wide of the fielder at mid-off for a boundary

Australia 112/3   CL White 15* (11b 2x4 1x6)   PD Collingwood 1.2-1-10-1

Shahzad to Hussey, FOUR, short, wide, smashed. Hussey reaches out for a wide one and lashes the ball through point with a fierce cut

Australia 137/4   DJ Hussey 14* (20b 1x4)   A Shahzad 5.2-1-25-0

Trott to Hussey, FOUR, driven and driven superbly wide of the fielder at mid-off, excellent timing

Australia 147/4   DJ Hussey 21* (28b 2x4)   IJL Trott 0.2-0-5-0

Finn to Clarke, FOUR, cracking drive through extra cover from Clarke as the changed ball offers a bit of pace off the bat, and Steven Finn, who has returned, goes a touch too full

Australia 158/4   MJ Clarke 39* (55b 4x4)   ST Finn 7.1-0-36-1

Finn to Clarke, FOUR, Clarke uses his feet now and gives himself room to pull a slightly short ball through midwicket, well placed by Clarke as he finds the gap at midwicket and picks up a valuable boundary

Australia 173/4   MJ Clarke 46* (62b 5x4)   ST Finn 9-0-47-1

Shahzad to Johnson, FOUR, bouncer, Johnson goes for the pull and gets a top edge that sails just a few inches over the leaping Prior and runs away for a boundary

Australia 204/6   MG Johnson 9* (15b 1x4)   A Shahzad 7.4-1-38-0

Shahzad to Johnson, FOUR, and Johnson launches a powerful drive back past the bowler and gets another valuable boundary

Australia 208/6   MG Johnson 13* (16b 2x4)   A Shahzad 7.5-1-42-0

Finn to Smith, FOUR, super shot! What a cracking drive through cover as he backs off a touch and thumps a pretty good ball that was full and straight, finding the gap at extra cover

Australia 218/7   SPD Smith 13* (17b 1x4)   ST Finn 9.1-0-51-1

Finn to Hastings, FOUR, oh, well done by Hastings as he backs away and is followed by Finn, but Hastings then swivels a pull and helps it fine enough to beat fine leg - more valuable runs

Australia 223/7   JW Hastings 5* (4b 1x4)   ST Finn 9.4-0-56-1

Finn to Hastings, FOUR, another boundary as Hastings swings and throws everything at this one, getting it high over mid-off and gets enough on it to bounce over the boundary

Australia 227/7   JW Hastings 9* (5b 2x4)   ST Finn 9.5-0-60-1

Trott to Bollinger, FOUR, Bollinger begins with a boundary! He's cut hard and thereare men up in the circle at backward point and fly slip - this pierces the gap

Australia 247/9   DE Bollinger 5* (3b 1x4)   IJL Trott 1.1-0-12-0
