Australia tour of England and Scotland, 5th ODI: England v Australia at Southampton, Sep 16, 2013
Australia won by 49 runs
16 September 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Jordan to Hughes, OUT, dug in short again, tried tries to pull and Hughes has got a huge top edge - it loops to midwicket and Jordan leaps in the air to celebrate his first England wicket! Think Hughes was beaten for pace, the bottom hand came off the handle and he knew where this was going as soon as he connnected - poor Pippy, it's been a long few months

PJ Hughes c Carberry b Jordan 2 (16m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Australia 13/1   AJ Finch 9* (10b 2x4)   CJ Jordan 1.1-0-9-1

Stokes to Finch, OUT, fullish, bit of width and Finch is tempted, doesn't get over a square drive and picks out Morgan first ball after the resumption! Not sure what Finch was thinking there, he surely could have done with a sighter, didn't need to go after that delivery but he's thrown away a promising start and the England players are singing in the post-rain

AJ Finch c Morgan b Stokes 26 (42m 32b 6x4 0x6) SR: 81.25

Australia 48/2   SR Watson 11* (17b 1x4)   BA Stokes 0.4-0-1-1

Stokes to Wade, OUT, and he's gloved his first ball behind, a golden duck for Wade! This is quackers, we've had a brief interruption and Australia have come out and lost two in two! Stokes beat Wade for pace with the bouncer, it was a touch leg side, again could have been ignored but the new batsman chased it, clear flick of glove and Stokes has another

MS Wade c †Buttler b Stokes 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 48/3   SR Watson 11* (17b 1x4)   BA Stokes 0.5-0-1-2

Jordan to Clarke, OUT, another chance to mid-off, Pietersen's there this time and takes the catch as Clarke splices a pull stroke. Tried to open up the off side again did Clarke but didn't become a great position from which to play a pull stroke, perhaps got hurried by Jordan and got nowhere near enough on the stroke and it looped to Pietersen who showed Rankin how to do it

MJ Clarke c Pietersen b Jordan 75 (96m 76b 10x4 1x6) SR: 98.68

Australia 211/4   SR Watson 91* (74b 8x4 3x6)   CJ Jordan 7-0-42-2

Root to Bailey, OUT, Bailey sweeps and misses, Buttler nudges off the bails and trots away to celebrate with Root - he seems pretty certain but the umpires send it upstairs to check. And the evidence is pretty clear, Bailey's foot stayed grounded just beyond his crease, he made no effort to get it back, so must have lost his bearings... This is going to be out, Root has done the trick, in slightly bizarre circumstances

GJ Bailey st †Buttler b Root 4 (14m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Australia 221/5   SR Watson 97* (80b 8x4 3x6)   JE Root 1.2-0-10-1

Stokes to Voges, OUT, edged and gone, caught at the wicket with Buttler plunging to his right! Bit of a nothing stroke from Voges, half forward and attempting a little push, the ball kissed the edge and just about carried through

AC Voges c †Buttler b Stokes 8 (12m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 47.05

Australia 244/6   SR Watson 112* (94b 10x4 3x6)   BA Stokes 6.3-0-49-3

Stokes to Watson, OUT, steps away, swings the arms ... and nicks off! There'll be a few sighs of relief on the England balcony, as Watson was just threatening to take the game away again. He was looking to hit down the ground here but it wasn't quite full enough, Watson played down slightly the wrong line, small deflection and comfortably held

SR Watson c †Buttler b Stokes 143 (174m 107b 12x4 6x6) SR: 133.64

Australia 282/7   JP Faulkner 6* (12b)   BA Stokes 8.4-0-55-4

Stokes to Johnson, OUT, tries to turn to leg again, leading edge and gone, caught and bowled! Stokes has five-for! Johnson departs with alacrity, having made just a couple, and England have now claimed 5 for 73 in 13 overs (which would look a whole lot better without that Watson assault on Root)

MG Johnson c & b Stokes 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 284/8   JP Faulkner 6* (12b)   BA Stokes 9-0-57-5

Jordan to Faulkner, OUT, slightly back of a length and darting across Faulkner, Buttler throws himself down the leg side to take a sharp catch - was there a bit of glove on that? Umpire Dar thinks so but Faulkner immediately reviews. He thinks it flicked his sweater - and it did, but not before tickling the inside edge of the bat, Hot Spot clearly shows the mark and the decision is upheld. England have another

JP Faulkner c †Buttler b Jordan 10 (35m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Australia 294/9   CJ McKay 5* (15b)   CJ Jordan 9.4-0-47-3

Rankin to McKay, OUT, McKay steps to leg, Rankin follows him and the slog across the line goes up in the air, to be safely pouched by the man coming in from deep square leg! Boyd Rankin, the pick of the attack, has a wicket at last and Australia have been bowled out for less than 300

CJ McKay c Root b Rankin 5 (20m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.25

Australia 298/10   Fawad Ahmed 4* (2b 1x4)   WB Rankin 9.1-1-26-1
