14 September 2007 (20-over match)

Lee to Maddy, 1 run, forward defensive to a slow loosener, drops into the on side, no more than a few yards, and a scurried single to loud cheers


Lee to Prior, no run, back of a length, on off stump, Prior half forward and defends to point


Lee to Prior, no run, fuller, driven but not timed, his top hand comes off the bat as he plays the stroke and it dribbles to mid-off


Lee to Prior, no run, wider, 85mph, no shot offered


Lee to Prior, 1 run, dropped into the leg side, a quick single, Maddy, the non striker, ran in a straight line and Lee swerved across the pitch and the two collided ... Maddy got home safely and it was Lee who was left on the turf


Lee to Maddy, 2 runs, short, cut over backward point, third man round quickly to field

England 4/0   B Lee 1-0-4-0

Lee to Maddy, no run, wide, Maddy looks to cut but it's too close to him and he ends up much too cramped


Lee to Maddy, no run, same again, and this one cuts back as well so he gets even more cramped and once more misses


Lee to Maddy, FOUR, bouncer at 89mph, fast and nasty, Maddy onto it quickly and he hooks for a one-bounce four, quite safe and he picked that up in a trice


Lee to Maddy, no run, as limp as the last shot was aggressive ... semi-nothing prod outside the off stump which he misses


Lee to Maddy, 1 run, back and pushed towards extra cover, real tip and run, and he did well to take all the pace of that


Lee to Prior, no run, wide and a flamboyant drive which Prior gets nowhere near

England 17/0   B Lee 2-0-9-0

Lee to Collingwood, 1 run, driven out straight for an easy single


Lee to Pietersen, (no ball) 1 run, overstepping, leg-side full toss and Pietersen drives out to long-on


Lee to Collingwood, SIX, attempted yorker veering towards middle, but missed his length only by a little bit and Collingwood crashes right in front of midwicket


Lee to Collingwood, OUT, low full toss, on off, and a huge wicket, Collingwood trapped low and there wasn't much deliberating needed to give that one out

PD Collingwood lbw b Lee 18 (12m 11b 2x4 1x6) SR: 163.63


Lee to Flintoff, 1 run, another yorker greets Flintoff, who waits before driving smoothly out to mid-on


Lee to Pietersen, 1 run, another full delivery driven out to Mr Hussey-Cricket in the covers, but still enough time for an easy single


Lee to Flintoff, no run, fuller delivery but gets away with it courtesy of Symonds' stop in the covers

England 75/4   B Lee 3-0-20-1

Lee to Pietersen, 1 run, full toss on leg, pulled out to the midwicket boundary, the return from Hayden has Lee backing into Pietersen at the non-striker's to take it, but he's OK


Lee to Flintoff, FOUR, thumping cover drive aimed between mid-off and cover and Hussey gets a hand on it, stands up, runs again and tries to recover but the ball runs on


Lee to Flintoff, FOUR, carved away through backward point


Lee to Flintoff, no run, outside off, swing in the air, and worked down through backward point again


Lee to Flintoff, 1 run, horrible full toss but a nagging height, Flintoff can only bring his hands down on it late, cramped a bit for room, and so a single is all that's available


Lee to Pietersen, 1 run, backed away and driven off the back foot to cover, where a direct shy from Symonds would have been close

England 97/4   B Lee 4-0-31-1
