England in Australia ODI Series - 6th ODI

Australia v England

Australia won by 2 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

7.1

Johnson to Prior, 1 run, 139.9 kph full delivery going across the batsman, who gets forward and drives to the left of mid off for a single

7.2

Johnson to Strauss, 1 no ball, 143.3 kph delivery that goes down the leg side, that would have been a wide had it not been a no-ball, free hit coming up England's way

7.2

Johnson to Strauss, 1 run, backs away outside leg but Johnson follows him with a short one, well bowled, he gets a top edge as he has a whack at it, and the ball falls short of the man at deep square leg, makes no difference anyways

7.3

Johnson to Prior, OUT, Prior has run out of luck finally this innings, and to an absolute beauty from Johnson, it was fullish, swinging in from around off stump, and Prior played all around it, and the ball crashed in to off stump, Johnson strikes in his first over

MJ Prior b Johnson 18 (33m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 78.26

England 46/1   MG Johnson 2-0-5-1

13.5

Johnson to Strauss, no run, Strauss is getting impatient here, backs away and has a go at a length delivery, fortunately for him, it rolls away limply to mid on

Johnson to Trott, no run, full delivery on the blockhole outside off, played towards point

41.5

Johnson to Trott, 2 runs, that wasn't short at all but Trott moves across and plays a short-arm pull through square. Trott does the calling for the runner and wants two

41.6

Johnson to Trott, FOUR, Trott steps out and latches on to the width offered to slash the ball over point for four. Terrible length and the line wasn't too hot either
