Australia tour of England and Scotland, 2nd ODI: England v Australia at Manchester, Sep 8, 2013
Australia won by 88 runs
8 September 2013 (50-over match)

Finn to Marsh, OUT, pitched up, Marsh prods and edges through to the keeper - gone! Poor shot from an opening batsman, the ball didn't really do anything off the pitch but Marsh's feet were stuck in a bog and he dangled his bat outside off stump, there was a big deflection and Buttler took a comfortable catch at chest height

SE Marsh c †Buttler b Finn 0 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 0/1   AJ Finch 0* (0b)   ST Finn 0.4-0-0-1

Bopara to Watson, OUT, length, outside off, Watson tries to cut off the back foot, he misses - or does he? Bopara is convinced he hit this and England review. We're into Clockwork Orange replay territory, the footage run over and over again from different angles; there's a definite sound as the ball passes, seemingly over the top edge - but the side-on, Hot Spot angle, has the ball going past the toe of the bat, and no heat mark. This is very tricky, as the different camera angles almost look like they're showing different deliveries... but Dar decides the audio is clear, there's nothing else the bat could have hit as the ball went through, and the decision is overturned. Watson has to go this time!

SR Watson c †Buttler b Bopara 38 (51m 51b 6x4 1x6) SR: 74.50

Australia 60/2   AJ Finch 22* (21b 2x4)   RS Bopara 1.4-0-5-1

Tredwell to Finch, OUT, goes for another big slog down the ground but picks out long-on! Finch has given it away, launching the ball flat and straight down the gullet of Joe Root on the fence, who barely has to move and swallows it without fuss

AJ Finch c Root b Tredwell 45 (98m 45b 4x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 116/3   MJ Clarke 32* (31b 4x4)   JC Tredwell 3.5-0-37-1

Bopara to Bailey, OUT, length ball on leg stump, Bailey swirls and pulls and picks out Tredwell at short long leg. Unlucky for Bailey really, he helped it on its way down the leg side, tried to keep it down but slapped it directly to Tredwell who held a solid chance with two hands at knee height, a gift for England and ends a fine innings

GJ Bailey c Tredwell b Bopara 82 (88m 67b 5x4 4x6) SR: 122.38

Australia 271/4   MJ Clarke 102* (95b 14x4)   RS Bopara 9.3-0-55-2

Rankin to Clarke, OUT, swing to a length ball just outside off, thin nick and taken by Buttler. Those seven balls that Voges faced forced Clarke into a quite wild swing from a poor base and he's got a thin edge behind bringing to an end a marvellous innings

MJ Clarke c †Buttler b Rankin 105 (141m 102b 14x4 0x6) SR: 102.94

Australia 283/5   AC Voges 9* (10b)   WB Rankin 8.2-0-35-1

Rankin to Wade, OUT, length ball on off stump, Wade plays a nothing stroke really from the crease trying to run it down towards third man, the delivery was too close for the stroke and he's dragged it on. Beaten for a pace a little and got a thick inside edge into off stump

MS Wade b Rankin 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 283/6   AC Voges 9* (10b)   WB Rankin 8.3-0-35-2

Finn to Faulkner, OUT, steps to leg and tries to clear the off side but gets it slightly high on the bat and finds extra-cover where Morgan takes a good low catch down by his bootlaces. Finn followed the batsman and slightly cramped him for room

JP Faulkner c Morgan b Finn 18 (12m 11b 2x4 1x6) SR: 163.63

Australia 308/7   AC Voges 16* (16b)   ST Finn 9.2-1-62-2
