England v Australia

Australia won by 39 runs

11.2

Dernbach to Watson, 2 runs, length on off stump, Watson stays leg side of it and gets it off the glove past slip, Finn at third man does well to save four

11.3

Dernbach to Watson, 1 run, hard proper cut now from just outside off down to third man

11.5

Dernbach to Watson, FOUR, big booming drive from a length ball past mid-off, right out of the middle

11.6

Dernbach to Watson, FOUR, another big boomer, this time back past the bowler, long-off is up for some reason, why bowl that length with that field when you know Watson drives it all day

Australia 141/2   SR Watson 11* (4b 2x4)

12.2

Wright to Watson, no run, full length on off stump, Watson forward and pushes on the bounce to the bowler

Australia 145/2   SR Watson 13* (7b 2x4)

13.1

Broad to Watson, no run, forward and pressed up the wicket

Australia 157/2   SR Watson 18* (10b 3x4)

14.5

Wright to Watson, SIX, full length a foot outside off, Watson clears the front leg and smashes it straight over the bowler's head, straight as a dye and all the way for six

14.6

Wright to Watson, 2 runs, now a full toss wide of off stump, hammered wide of long-off, Lumb slides and saves the boundary but they get two more

Australia 180/2   SR Watson 26* (12b 3x4 1x6)

15.3

Broad to Watson, SIX, full length on the stumps, Watson again clears the front leg and nails it over long-on, the fourth umpire takes a fine catch

15.4

Broad to Watson, FOUR, oh dear, full toss wide of off stump, guided away through point

15.5

Broad to Watson, 1 run, full length on off stump, driven out to deep cover

Australia 198/2   SR Watson 37* (15b 4x4 2x6)

17.4

Dernbach to Watson, OUT, fabulous slower ball, Watson totally sold down the river and loses his leg stump. Classic Dernbach, back of the hand change up, Watson aimed to leg but knew he was through with the shot far too soon and the ball cannoned into the base of leg stump, Watson already walking back to the hutch

SR Watson b Dernbach 37 (30m 16b 4x4 2x6) SR: 231.25

Australia 227/4   SR Watson 37 (16b 4x4 2x6)
