ICC World Twenty20 - Final

Australia v England

England won by 7 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)

1.1

Bresnan to Warner, no run, good start from Bresnan, nippy and bang on a length and line, Warner skipped back and tried to force it on to the leg side, but it was on him too quickly

1.2

Bresnan to Warner, no run, Warner itching to get things going, giving himself a touch of room and looking to scythe this through the off side, it gets a touch big on him and he can't time it

1.3

Bresnan to Warner, 1 run, Warner hangs on the back foot and pulls this, from a fullish length really, through square leg for a single

1.4

Bresnan to Clarke, no run, Bresnan really holding his nerve here, banging it in just short of a length on a good line, and Clarke defends

1.5

Bresnan to Clarke, OUT, Warner gone this time! England on fire, Clarke pushes a good-length ball to cover, and then attempts a single, Warner tares down but Lumb swooped in and under-armed his throw on to the stumps at the strikers end to leave Warner well short of his ground

DA Warner run out 2 (11m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

1.6

Bresnan to Haddin, 1 run, oh dear, indecision again from Clarke, Haddin guided it to short third man and Clarke called a very close single, this time though, the throw missed the stumps. High drama and nerves already!

Australia 8/2   TT Bresnan 1-0-2-0

6.1

Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, Bresnan back into the attack, Clarke greets him with a nurdle to leg side for one

6.2

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 1 leg bye, Hussey can't quite find his range at the moment, this was arrowed down the leg side, but he couldn't get the flick away and it comes off the pads for a leg bye

6.3

Bresnan to Clarke, 2 runs, angled too far down leg this time, Clarke carefully pulls it down to a sliding deep square fielder who keeps it to a couple

6.4

Bresnan to Clarke, 1 run, good ball this, back of a length and Clarke stands tall and pushes towards point for a single

6.5

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 1 run, Hussey looking to create some momentum, gets on the back foot and swipes, with no timing, down to mid on for a single

6.6

Bresnan to Clarke, FOUR, not a great ball this and Clarke punishes him, short but slower, sits up for Clarke who pulls past mid on for the second boundary of the innings

Australia 34/3   TT Bresnan 2-0-11-0

14.1

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 1 run, Hussey looking more secure now, picking a gap to third man from this shortish ball outside off

14.2

Bresnan to White, FOUR, oh dear, don't bowl there if you're Tim Bresnan. Too short but lacking the intent, White hung on his back foot and bludgeoned it through midwicket for four

14.3

Bresnan to White, no run, good response from Bresnan, slightly fuller and giving White no room to swing his arms, defended back to the bowler

14.4

Bresnan to White, 1 run, banged in short and at the body again, White has no room to cause damage here, and it's worked into the leg side

14.5

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, no run, Hussey skipping leg side of the ball, looking to give himself room, as it was, it was wide off off stump anyway and he can't reach it

14.6

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 1 run, all happening here! Hussey top edged a massive swipe, it went miles in the air, swirling around, Broad called it from mid on, but in the end could not even drop it, as he misjudged a huge chance completely. Strong breeze here might have been his undoing

Australia 92/4   TT Bresnan 3-0-18-0

16.1

Bresnan to MEK Hussey, 1 run, big big chance here missed by Collingwood. Hussey guided a short ball straight to cover, Collingwood had all three stumps to aim at, but missed

16.2

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 1 run, touch of swing into the right hander here, worked away into the leg side for a single

16.3

Bresnan to MEK Hussey, FOUR, well, Hussey gets away with one here, edging down the track and looking to drive through the covers, it flies off the outside edge wide of the keeper for four

16.4

Bresnan to MEK Hussey, 1 run, good ball from Bresnan, slower and Hussey guides it down to third man for a calm single

16.5

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, (no ball) SIX, very damaging for England that. Bresnan throws up a high full toss, far too high, no ball, and Hussey swiped it, with the breeze over midwicket for six

16.5

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 2 runs, this time it's worked firmly down to deep midwicket for a couple, good over this for Australia

16.6

Bresnan to DJ Hussey, 1 run, tidy finish from Bresnan, finding a fullish length, Hussey swings hard but it comes off the bottom edge towards the keeper for another single

Australia 114/5   TT Bresnan 4-0-35-0
