    11.4 edged, taken! Lovely stuff from Moeen. This is tighter to off stump, Warner looking to push into the off side, takes an outside edge and snaffled at slip 68/1
    40.1 finds mid-on! Once again, England strike back-to-back...went to drive down the ground, think he wanted to go over top, got no sort of elevation and it's a simple catch on the edge of the circle 213/5
    19.4 huge appeal and Smith is pinned lbw! Unsurprisingly, he has reviewed... he was stretching onto the front foot, might it have hit him outside the line? Nope, that is trimming the top of the leg bail and what a breakthrough! 110/2
    23.5 Root has another! This is a killer spell! Head lost his head, charging down the pitch but beaten in the flight, a tame popped return catch, and Australia's innings has been blown wide open by the part-timer! 124/3
    39.2 he's gone now! He knew he had to press the accelerator, he charges out of his crease, nowhere near the ball, has a swing across the line, misses and it's a simple stumping for Buttler 209/4
    41.2 given caught behind! That's a lovely piece of bowling, England on the charge. Floated up on off stump, draws Stonis forward, spins away as he drives and it's a thin snick 216/6
    not out
    47.4 that's why England warm-up with football! Great skills from Woakes. Superb from him all-round, in fact. Firstly he out-smarted White with a slower-ball bouncer which was bottom edged into the crease, Carey came through for the run, Woakes followed through and right-footed into the stumps 255/7
    49.1 this time he's taken at deep midwicket! Roy this time. Good length, bit of pace off, Starc tries to clear the leg side and can't get the distance needed 261/8
    49.6 direct hit! Dot ball and a wicket to end. Woakes goes short, Tye bottom edges into the crease, they go for the run, Woakes is quickly on it in his follow through then spins around and hits direct at the non-striker's end 270/9

    0.4 flicked off the toes, and scooped up at short midwicket! It was the swing wot won it, aiming straight, looking for the lbw, Roy's bat came swishing across the line but couldn't stay on top of the shot. A good low grab from Finch to lift Australia's spirits 2/1
    21.3 finds cover! Back-to-back wickets for Richardson. Full outside off, he goes for the drive, neither keeps it down or goes fully over the top, picks out Warner 129/3
    19.2 dragged on! A first ODI wicket for Richardson. Short of a length, looking to run it down to third man and gets an under edge into the stumps 119/2
    not out
    27.1 he's done it! Via the inside edge. Game on? A good length ball, just angling into Morgan, playing forward, gets an inside edge into his pad then into the stumps 157/4
    37.1 edged and gone! Through to the keeper, easy as pie. That's a superb ball in any circumstance. Angled in, nipping away, drawing the thin edge. A glimmer 225/5
    37.4 there it goes! This is brilliant from Starc ... so full, so quick, late movement with reverse into the toes. Moeen's timbers are rattled and, well, he's not given up the ghost yet! 227/6
