6.4

Bresnan to Finch, OUT, on the attack, doesn't get hold of a pull and plops the ball to mid-on! England have got their aggressor, Bresnan winkles him out with a half-tracker, miscalculation from Finch, who tried to pull from outside off, maybe wasn't quite short enough either and spooned to the fielder

AJ Finch c Broad b Bresnan 30 (29m 21b 1x4 3x6) SR: 142.85

Australia 48/1   CL White 16* (19b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 1.4-0-10-1
8.2

Broad to Maxwell, OUT, swings again but Maxwell has holed out to long-on! The ball was back of a length, Maxwell tried to cross-batter it again, came high off the bat and straight to the man running in from the fence. Another frenzied failure from Maxwell

GJ Maxwell c Hales b Broad 14 (7m 7b 0x4 2x6) SR: 200.00

Australia 65/2   CL White 18* (22b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 2.2-0-19-1
13.2

Root to Cutting, OUT, down the track, punches firmly back towards the bowler but Root reaches out to his left and clings onto a rifling chance that was struck very well but evidently too straight and Root intervened to perfect effect

BCJ Cutting c & b Root 29 (22m 16b 1x4 3x6) SR: 181.25

Australia 118/3   CL White 41* (36b 4x4 1x6)   JE Root 0.2-0-1-1
14.1

Jordan to White, OUT, full down the leg side, White flicks at it, there's a polite enquiry and it's given out! The slightest of edges according to Snicko but that a very good decision from the umpire. Innocent little flash down the leg side and Jordan has picked up a cheap wicket

CL White c †Buttler b Jordan 41 (65m 37b 4x4 1x6) SR: 110.81

Australia 130/4   GJ Bailey 12* (4b 1x4 1x6)   CJ Jordan 2.1-0-10-1
15.4

Broad to Hodge, OUT, short again but this time pulled straight to long leg where Dernbach doesn't have to move to take it at head height, solid catch and the short ball works this time, the shot was pretty firmly struck but he picked out the fielder with perfection

BJ Hodge c Dernbach b Broad 7 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 139/5   GJ Bailey 13* (6b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 3.4-0-30-2
15.6

Broad to Christian, OUT, full length, nips back a little, Christian pokes at it in the crease, and gets a thick inside edge that takes middle stump another wicket for England who are just coming back into this. Very poor footwork, i.e. none, from Christian

DT Christian b Broad 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 139/6   GJ Bailey 13* (6b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 4-0-30-3
