    0.4 a low full toss, angling into the pads, and up goes the finger again! Blimey, it was a good case for using a second review in the over. The Aussies in the cordon were taunting him to 'use it, go on!' but he didn't and it was a bad error! Hawkeye shows that was missing leg stump by a distance. 4/1
    3.6 so nearly dropped at point, but grabbed at the second attempt! A horrid scratchy innings comes to an end. That was his first real shot in anger, and it scooted straight at Maxwell's head, who eventually clung onto the second attempt down by his knees 13/2
    5.5 lovely delivery! Climbed off the deck and Hastings has his reward for perseverance. Taylor's eagerness to put bat on ball is his undoing as he feathers an edge through to Wade, and now England are in serious bother 22/3
    retired hurt
    19.6 struck on the pads, up goes the finger - Stokes is a goner, too! Very similar to the Willey dismissal, hit on the knee roll around the line of leg stump, umpire Bailey doesn't take long to make his decision and England have no more reviews. It looked a good appeal at first glance... Captain/Agent Smith and his men have snuffed out Stokes after a feisty knock 85/7
    13.3 massive appeal! Very full, very straight, but given not out ... it's a review.... no bat involved, now then, is it hitting leg full enough, indeed it is! That's out! 56/4
    17.1 a gloriously Gower-esque departure from Moeen Ali, as if to prove the earlier point! He played the shot on merit, but the upshot is an edge to the keeper and a rather desperate scoreline 72/5
    17.3 hit on the pads, huge appeal from Marsh... and Bailey's finger goes up! Is that another one gone? Willey asks for the review, this is going to depend on whether the ball pitched in line... and Hawk-Eye says it did, bang on and straightening, would have shuddered the top of leg stump! England are six (effectively seven) down! 72/6
    not out
    23.1 Wood tries to launch Hasting into the stands and picks out deep extra cover! His merry thrash comes to a predictably quick finish and John Hastings has three-for in an ODI for the first time 106/8
    32.6 pinned in front and that's all over, red rover! The simplest lbw decision of the day, Topley playing back to one that gripped a little and straightened on off stump, plumb as a pudding 138/9

Match Notes

  • Magical mystery summer

    There has been breathtaking, amazing cricket in England, but we need to ensure the next generation develops a taste for what is on offer

  • Players shaken by Morgan head injury

    Mitchell Starc was left shaken after his bouncer inflicted a fierce blow on Eoin Morgan's helmet, which forced the England captain to retire hurt

  • Weary Smith proud of Australia's resilience

    Steven Smith played in every international fixture of Australia's arduous tour of the British Isles. But victory in the final ODI of the summer allows him to take a break with great satisfaction

  • Hales' slump presents selection test

    Put forward as a potential Test opener, Alex Hales has endured a miserable run before the squad is anounced. But will the selectors look beyond his limited-overs form?

  • England's rapid demise, Marsh fills his boots

    Stats highlights from the fifth ODI at Old Trafford, where Australia knocked England over in short order
