NatWest Series [Australia in England] - 4th ODI

England v Australia

England won by 3 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)

0.1

Finn to Finch, OUT, but this ain't no loosener, full and straight, struck on the pad and given out lbw. Oh yes that's dead, finger goes up straight away and Finch is gone. A fast full delivery that seamed in a little bit and beat the attempted straight drive, hit the pad flush around the ankle and right in front of middle and leg, great start for England

AJ Finch lbw b Finn 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 1/1   SE Marsh 0* (0b)   ST Finn 0.1-0-1-1

3.6

Rankin to Watson, OUT, full length, nibbles away and this time Watson has nicked it behind and that is an outstanding over from Rankin that has been rewarded. A fuller length this time has Watson trying to drive it though mid-off but a little seam movement sees the ball leave the batsman, taking a thin outside edge and a simple catch to Buttler. Outstanding bowling, set him up perfectly there

SR Watson c †Buttler b Rankin 6 (16m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Australia 11/2   SE Marsh 1* (12b)   WB Rankin 2-1-2-1

12.5

Stokes to Marsh, OUT, bouncer, surprise delivery, hooked at and Buttler takes it well above his head, has Marsh gloved this? Yes he has and Stokes makes the breakthrough. Good use of the bumper and it really hurried Marsh who was in no control of the hook which got up on him and brushed the glove, it flew high above Buttler's head but he leaped up with his right hand and made a smart grab

SE Marsh c †Buttler b Stokes 25 (57m 40b 5x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Australia 51/3   MJ Clarke 16* (25b 2x4)   BA Stokes 1.5-0-11-1

13.3

Finn to Clarke, OUT, full, it nips back and strikes Clarke on the pad hanging back on his stumps, given out lbw Clarke has a chat with Bailey and decides to review. Was it going down? Was it too high? Umpire Ravi though it looked good. There's no bat on Hot Spot. Hawk Eye has it clipping the top of leg stump and that is good enough for umpire Ravi and England, Clarke goes, done by a delivery that seamed back in and the change back to Finn has worked but Clarke may feel a touch hard done by then

MJ Clarke lbw b Finn 22 (43m 28b 3x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Australia 57/4   GJ Bailey 0* (1b)   ST Finn 5.3-0-23-2

29.6

Bopara to Voges, OUT, bowled him, just tickled a bail and Bopara has struck! He is ecstatic, running off with a huge grin on his face, not quite sure what did for Voges there but he was through the shot early, attempting to pull a ball not quite short enough for the stroke, it passed under the blade and just nudged the woodwork. Maybe just skidded on a touch, rather than bouncing as much as usual, and sold Voges a dummy

AC Voges b Bopara 30 (60m 52b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.69

Australia 124/5   GJ Bailey 35* (48b 2x6)   RS Bopara 5-0-20-1

42.2

Tredwell to Wade, OUT, comes down the pitch, has another flamin' yahoo and gets a thick outside edge, which is plucked from the air at backward point. Wade goes and Carberry is the man with a smart catch! Respite for Tredwell, who continued to give the ball a bit of air, it dipped on Wade and he sliced a drive, looked like it might clear Carberry but he leapt like nimble-footed teenager and took it one-handed

MS Wade c Carberry b Tredwell 36 (54m 40b 3x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Australia 209/6   GJ Bailey 83* (82b 5x4 3x6)   JC Tredwell 6.2-0-48-1

42.6

Tredwell to Bailey, OUT, Bailey tickles one off his pads, straight to backward square leg and Faulkner is struggling here, Buttler takes Trott's flat throw in front of the stumps and swing his arms back to break the wicket ... It goes up to the third umpire but he is well short and Australia have lost two for one in five balls

JP Faulkner run out 1 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 210/7   GJ Bailey 83* (83b 5x4 3x6)   JC Tredwell 7-0-49-1

44.6

Tredwell to Johnson, OUT, skids through the defences, bowled him! Flat delivery from Tredwell, Johnson should have been forward, couldn't get his bat down in time and the ball juddered off stump. Australia have lost three for nine in 17 deliveries

MG Johnson b Tredwell 4 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 218/8   GJ Bailey 87* (89b 5x4 3x6)   JC Tredwell 8-0-52-2

45.2

Rankin to Bailey, OUT, doesn't move the feet again, pushes and nicks off! Another one gone! Just a tickle of a feather of a scrape, Buttler went up immediately and it was just audible on the stump mic, umpire Ravi heard it too and Bailey, the redoubtable George Bailey, falls!

GJ Bailey c †Buttler b Rankin 87 (138m 91b 5x4 3x6) SR: 95.60

Australia 218/9   NM Coulter-Nile 0* (0b)   WB Rankin 8.2-1-29-2

48.2

Tredwell to McKay, OUT, tries to hit down the ground, grips a little and McKay gets an inside edge on to his pad, then through to disturb the stumps! Australia have been bowled out with 10 deliveries still on the shelf, England taking the last five wickets for 18 runs

CJ McKay b Tredwell 2 (12m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Australia 227/10   NM Coulter-Nile 7* (6b 1x4)   JC Tredwell 8.2-0-53-3
