Mark Wood813214.00323010
45.3 to KW Richardson, pitched up, slapped to mid-off! Wood has a wicket, Richardson losing patience and picking out the man on the edge of the ring. 208/9
David Willey804115.12245000
1.2 to TM Head, full, lavish swing for Willey, that's nicked straight to slip on the drive! Head doesn't dally, he was looking to get on top but the ball moved a fair way from him, a loose shot having failed to size up the conditions, England have their breakthrough. 7/1
Moeen Ali1014334.30393200
8.4 to AJ Finch, tossed up invitingly, Finch opens his body to go up and over... but only skews a thick outside edge to short third man! England have got rid of the dangerous Finch, Australia's most-experienced batsman, trying to get on top of Moeen but miscuing against the spin. 47/2
10.2 to SE Marsh, bowled 'im! Moeen straightens one and Marsh plays the wrong line, he's off on the Bakerloo as the ball chugs down the Piccadilly to topple off stump. England on top, here. 52/3
16.1 to TD Paine, oh dear, what was that from Paine?! Makes a pre-meditated move outside off, brings out the reverse-sweep... and lobs a gentle top edge to short third man! He completely telegraphed his intentions, Buttler was almost far enough across to intercept the ball himself, but to compound that the execution was poor, hitting against the offspin, and he's gifted Moeen a third!. 70/4
Adil Rashid1003623.60311010
19.4 to MP Stoinis, edged and gone! Caught behind...not the best ball Rashid has bowled, it's short outside off, Stoinis shapes to cut but can only managed a thin top edge to Buttler. 90/5
41.1 to AC Agar, very full, Agar goes to sweep - misses and is plumb! Rob Bailey sends him on his way, no review from Agar, that struck him low down on the back pad as the ball straightened... only one place that delivery was ending up. Decent knock in adversity from Agar, but Australia are now seven down and in danger of not seeing out the overs. 193/7
Joe Root302006.6660110
Liam Plunkett804235.25305110
36.5 to GJ Maxwell, flicked off his legs, but in the air... and Bairstow snags it on the run at deep square leg! Plunkett gets Maxwell, bit of luck involved as he pretty much struck that too well - an aggressive pick up but it went high, and sailed into the sweeper's path running back from midwicket! A tidy knock from Maxwell but he can't go on, England break the recovery stand. 174/6
42.2 to MG Neser, goes for the slog down the ground, the ball not full enough for the shot... and mid-off settles under it for a simple catch! Neser tries to hit out and instead gets out, a second wicket for Plunkett and this innings is ending rather like it started. 197/8
46.6 to AJ Tye, takes the pace off, Tye dabs at it off the back foot... but only succeeds in tickling a low edge through to Buttler! He took that well, diving forwards, Tye shakes his head but his fun is over - time to think about bowling, with just 214 to defend. 214/10

Billy Stanlake1014424.40397000
0.2 to JJ Roy, straight through him! Stanlake shivers Roy's timbers with his second ball, a ferocious nip-backer, 90mph and maybe flicked the inside edge before smacking off stump right in the eye! That's a corking nut first up, Australia have the early lift with the ball they needed. 0/1
31.5 to JE Root, he's got him This is game on now! A good length ball outside off, Root playing with an open face outside off, and it's a thin edge. 163/6
Michael Neser814625.75307100
3.3 to AD Hales, full and straight, hit on the back pad... given! Dharmesena's finger goes up, Neser has his maiden international wicket! No review from Hales, sounded like there might have been an inside edge, but it was otherwise pretty adjacent, stuck on the crease and playing across the line. 23/2
38.4 to MM Ali, he's done it again! Moeen gives it away. A short delivery, angled across the body, he goes for the pull and gets a top edge which is taken at deep midwicket. Was aiming for the long boundary. 197/7
Kane Richardson914915.44349000
7.2 to JM Bairstow, short ball, Bairstow rocks on to the pull - and swipes it straight down the throat of deep square leg! Daft shot choice, and Australia have a third! They are amongst 'em, Richardson strikes now, and it doesn't say how the batsman got out in t'book. 38/3
Andrew Tye1014224.20385020
28.5 to EJG Morgan, he's got him, under edge to the keeper! Tye has provided the breakthrough. Comes round the wicket, it's not a great ball, short of a length outside off, and a thin bottom edge to Paine. That is actually the first ball round the wicket to Morgan from a quick bowler. 153/4
30.6 to JC Buttler, he's gone this time! The Tye slower ball has done the trick. It's the knuckle ball, full length, Buttler is through his shot far too early and offers a simple catch to mid-on. 163/5
