England tour of Australia, 4th ODI: Australia v England at Perth, Jan 24, 2014
England won by 57 runs

Maxwell to Cook, OUT, breakthrough! Another start not built on for Cook. Goes for the slog sweep, played over the top of the ball and it hits off stump. Was quite full for the shot. There may have been a little bottom edge. Maxwell does the trick again.

AN Cook b Maxwell 44 (53m 43b 8x4 0x6) SR: 102.32

England 87/1   IR Bell 36* (31b 6x4)   GJ Maxwell 1.2-0-3-1

Christian to Bell, OUT, Bell is gone! Oh, he'll be so frustrated at himself here. It was a bad ball down leg and Bell goes for the glance but fine leg is up in the circle and takes the catch easily! That didn't look like a plan from the Australians, just a fortuitous piece of, well, fortune.

IR Bell c Faulkner b Christian 55 (92m 52b 9x4 0x6) SR: 105.76

England 138/2   BA Stokes 31* (35b 3x4)   DT Christian 0.4-0-4-1

Pattinson to Ballance, OUT, that will boost Pattinson. Banged in a short, Ballance goes for the pull and gets a meaty top edge which goes now further than cover where Smith negotiates the sun to hold the catch

GS Ballance c Smith b Pattinson 18 (42m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

England 190/3   BA Stokes 61* (77b 5x4 1x6)   JL Pattinson 6.4-0-44-1

Faulkner to Stokes, OUT, big wicket! Stokes tries to lap-sweep a slower ball but can only get a top edge that loops behind him and Matthew Wade trots around for the catch. They check the no-ball, it's very tight but is just okay. Bit close for comfort.

BA Stokes c †Wade b Faulkner 70 (93m 84b 6x4 1x6) SR: 83.33

England 206/4   EJG Morgan 7* (7b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 5-0-32-1

Coulter-Nile to Bopara, OUT, and now he's gone! England losing their way. A length delivery, Bopara tries to pull but can't get it over mid-on where Doherty runs backwards, keeps his eyes on the ball and holds a good catch

RS Bopara c sub (XJ Doherty) b Coulter-Nile 3 (12m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

England 216/5   EJG Morgan 14* (15b 2x4)   NM Coulter-Nile 7-0-40-1

Faulkner to Morgan, OUT, Morgan is gone, he has flicked a low full toss from Faulkner to midwicket where Christian takes a pretty straightforward catch.

EJG Morgan c Christian b Faulkner 33 (66m 33b 3x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

England 287/6   JC Buttler 48* (33b 4x4 2x6)   JP Faulkner 8.3-0-54-2

Faulkner to Buttler, OUT, Buttler's entertaining innings comes to an end, he's swung hard outside off and this slices off the top edge and flies away towards third man where Johnson comes in and takes the catch

JC Buttler c Johnson b Faulkner 71 (52m 43b 6x4 4x6) SR: 165.11

England 312/7   TT Bresnan 2* (3b)   JP Faulkner 9.4-0-63-3

Faulkner to Bresnan, OUT, another catch at third man! Would you believe it? Bresnan has sliced this one off the edge and Johnson makes good ground to his left to take the catch

TT Bresnan c Johnson b Faulkner 2 (12m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 312/8   SCJ Broad 0* (0b)   JP Faulkner 9.5-0-63-4
