    6.3 got him, Moeen strikes - snuck through into the timber! What a good series he's having, this just gripped and spun, cramping Finch as he swung across the line, clipped the bottom edge and then rattled the stumps 60/1
    11.5 on the body, Head is tucked up and loops the ball straight to midwicket! He looks at his bat in frustration, Head falls after making an attractive fifty once again... Plunkett's modus operandi pays off, maybe bounced a bit more than expected and it was a simple catch for Morgan 90/3
    6.5 oh, what's he done...? Stoinis falls second ball, swept without timing straight to short fine leg! Good running catch from Ball, England have another. You could see what Stoinis was trying to do, but it was poorly executed, having barely had a sighter; two in three balls for Moeen 60/2
    12.6 Marsh reaches forward, overbalances and Buttler whips off the bails - is that a stumping...? Yes, superb bit of work from the keeper, Marsh's foot clearly dangling in the air as his weight went too far forwards; Moeen has a third, spinning it past the outside edge, and Australia in real trouble! 97/4
    24.1 strikes first ball! Back of a length outside off, Carey has a nibble and it's a thin edge to Buttler. Just trying to steer it to third man. A maiden ODI wicket for Sam Curran 159/6
    14.1 brilliant from Buttler! Dropped into the leg side, this is another tight single... and Buttler has raced after it and superbly thrown down the stumps at the bowler's end! Paine has run himself out, but it took some brilliant work from his rival stumper: scampering to his left, picking up and turning to throw unsighted, the ball just flicking off the bails - stupendous stuff! 100/5
    not out
    24.3 oh my goodness! He's left a straight one It goes from bad to worse for Australia. He's shoulder arms to a delivery that has hit middle and off. Unbelievable. He must have thought it was going to swing away. It certainly didn't. Would even have been too close to leave if he had moved! Jeepers 159/7
    27.6 another run out? Yes, he's gone! The ball deflected off the pad to short fine leg, there was all sorts of confusion over the ball. Richardson eventually turned to get back. Brings out the dive but it's not enough. His bat is on the line (and in the air). An excellent take by Buttler, in front of the stumps, on the half volley 181/8
    31.3 and he's done him! Skids through slowly, Lyon goes back to play the pull, doesn't make contact and that's right in front although Lyon, at the last moment, calls the review. Don't think so, Nathan. His back leg is bent right in front of the stumps. Smashing leg stump. 193/9
    34.4 and that's all over! Stanlake plays back outside leg stump, a shortish delivery slides on with the angle from round the wicket. He's not in the same postcode and it clatters leg stump. Career-best for Moeen Ali 205/10

    0.4 bowled him, straight through Roy! The tactical ploy works, Agar strikes in the first over, Roy aiming a yahoo down the ground but playing around the ball, bowled off his pad. Left-arm spin does the trick, misjudged the flight and that wasn't a great shot 2/1
    5.1 oh, that's out - chopped into this stumps! Stanlake strikes, bringing the ball in as Bairstow went back to cut, too cramped for the shot and he could only bottom-edge into his timbers. Another reminder that England have a bit of work to do if they're going to get a 5-0 of their own 19/2
    13.1 gottim, Hales nicks a wide one to the keeper! England are five down now, certainly doing a very gentlemanly job of letting Australia back into the game... Richardson is the beneficiary, an innocuous ball in the channel, but Hales flapped without foot movement and got a thin edge 50/5
    5.6 climbing, 88mph outside off, Root fends and sends a thick edge to slip! Two in the over for Stanlake and England are having a proper wobble now... Root chastises himself in frustration, it was short enough that he didn't have to play, but the heat drew him in - and then singed Marsh's hands as he clung on in front of his face! 23/3
    7.4 ANOTHER! Stanlake shatters the stumps, England four down! Just too quick for him, on a length and Morgan seemed to play around it, the ball rattles middle and off... and Australia must believe they can do this now! 27/4
    not out
    23.1 taken at backward point! Back of a length, Moeen gets squared up, takes a thick outside edge and there's a simple catch for Lyon 86/6
    29.3 there's an edge on this one...isn't there?! Curran plays a flashing drive. There's a noise. Given not out. Review called straightaway. Big spike on Snicko. Kumar has to reverse his decision. Good job for Australia that previous one was umpire's call 114/7
    29.4 super catch! Plunkett goes first ball. That's a horrid shot. He has Buttler at the other end, but chases a full, wide delivery with no footwork. This one's a thick edge, and Paine does very well to grab it low to his right. 114/8
    45.5 oh, my word, where's this going...? Stanlake takes the catch running in at fine leg! Australia have separated the ninth-wicket pair, with 11 runs still needed! Whipped across the line, again the bottom hand took over but he got a leading/top edge that somehow went swirling over his shoulder, Stanlake had to compose himself but took it well plunging forwards! 195/9
    not out
