Australia in England T20I Series - 1st T20I

England v Australia

Australia won by 39 runs

1.2

Broad to Warner, OUT, length ball just outside off, Warner throws the kitchen sink at it and loses it bat! The bat flies away into the leg side, where has the ball gone? It's gone straight up and Buttler goes across to take the skier. They check the no ball, Broad is always close right on the line this is mighty tight and Broad is just about okay but that was exceptionally tight

DA Warner c †Buttler b Broad 1 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Australia 11/1   AJ Finch 8* (3b 1x6)   SCJ Broad 0.2-0-1-1

10.3

Briggs to Marsh, OUT, Marsh tries to follow his partner, looking to clear the leg side, doesn't get it at all, it goes straight up and Lumb runs in from long-on and takes the catch. A good grab running in, plenty of ground to make up there and Lumb claimed it welll

SE Marsh c Lumb b Briggs 28 (34m 21b 2x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

Australia 125/2   AJ Finch 92* (37b 9x4 7x6)   DR Briggs 2.3-0-25-1

17.2

Dernbach to Finch, OUT, slower ball, Finch backs to leg, swings square and drags it onto middle stump ending a truly spectacular innings. That was a marvellous display of hitting and he falls trying to swing away another but got off balance going towards square leg and the change of pace deceived him

AJ Finch b Dernbach 156 (70m 63b 11x4 14x6) SR: 247.61

Australia 226/3   SR Watson 37* (15b 4x4 2x6)   JW Dernbach 2.2-0-26-1

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   GJ Maxwell 1* (1b)   JW Dernbach 2.4-0-27-2

18.1

Finn to Bailey, OUT, full on the stumps, Bailey tried to tickle it into the leg side, missed and it given out lbw straight by the umpire. Bailey got across his stumps and try to flick a full delivery towards midwicket but he missed and when you're in front of all three it ain't a good idea to be missing the ball

GJ Bailey lbw b Finn 1 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Australia 228/5   GJ Maxwell 1* (2b)   ST Finn 3.1-0-31-1

19.1

Dernbach to Maxwell, OUT, full and straight, Maxwell misses and Dernbach takes out his off stump, Dernback picking up a few late wickets here. Simple modus operandi there, quick delivery from slightly wide on the crease angled into the stumps and I did warn the Aussies about missing straight balls

GJ Maxwell b Dernbach 1 (9m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 242/6   MS Wade 14* (5b 2x4 1x6)   JW Dernbach 3.1-0-28-3
