Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Aaron Finch, 0.1 ov), 2-11 (Shane Watson, 3.6 ov), 3-51 (Shaun Marsh, 12.5 ov), 4-57 (Michael Clarke, 13.3 ov), 5-124 (Adam Voges, 29.6 ov), 6-209 (Matthew Wade, 42.2 ov), 7-210 (James Faulkner, 42.6 ov), 8-218 (Mitchell Johnson, 44.6 ov), 9-218 (George Bailey, 45.2 ov), 10-227 (Clint McKay, 48.2 ov)
0.1 to AJ Finch, but this ain't no loosener, full and straight, struck on the pad and given out lbw. Oh yes that's dead, finger goes up straight away and Finch is gone. A fast full delivery that seamed in a little bit and beat the attempted straight drive, hit the pad flush around the ankle and right in front of middle and leg, great start for England. 1/1
13.3 to MJ Clarke, full, it nips back and strikes Clarke on the pad hanging back on his stumps, given out lbw Clarke has a chat with Bailey and decides to review. Was it going down? Was it too high? Umpire Ravi though it looked good. There's no bat on Hot Spot. Hawk Eye has it clipping the top of leg stump and that is good enough for umpire Ravi and England, Clarke goes, done by a delivery that seamed back in and the change back to Finn has worked but Clarke may feel a touch hard done by then. 57/4
3.6 to SR Watson, full length, nibbles away and this time Watson has nicked it behind and that is an outstanding over from Rankin that has been rewarded. A fuller length this time has Watson trying to drive it though mid-off but a little seam movement sees the ball leave the batsman, taking a thin outside edge and a simple catch to Buttler. Outstanding bowling, set him up perfectly there. 11/2
45.2 to GJ Bailey, doesn't move the feet again, pushes and nicks off! Another one gone! Just a tickle of a feather of a scrape, Buttler went up immediately and it was just audible on the stump mic, umpire Ravi heard it too and Bailey, the redoubtable George Bailey, falls!. 218/9
12.5 to SE Marsh, bouncer, surprise delivery, hooked at and Buttler takes it well above his head, has Marsh gloved this? Yes he has and Stokes makes the breakthrough. Good use of the bumper and it really hurried Marsh who was in no control of the hook which got up on him and brushed the glove, it flew high above Buttler's head but he leaped up with his right hand and made a smart grab. 51/3
29.6 to AC Voges, bowled him, just tickled a bail and Bopara has struck! He is ecstatic, running off with a huge grin on his face, not quite sure what did for Voges there but he was through the shot early, attempting to pull a ball not quite short enough for the stroke, it passed under the blade and just nudged the woodwork. Maybe just skidded on a touch, rather than bouncing as much as usual, and sold Voges a dummy. 124/5
42.2 to MS Wade, comes down the pitch, has another flamin' yahoo and gets a thick outside edge, which is plucked from the air at backward point. Wade goes and Carberry is the man with a smart catch! Respite for Tredwell, who continued to give the ball a bit of air, it dipped on Wade and he sliced a drive, looked like it might clear Carberry but he leapt like nimble-footed teenager and took it one-handed. 209/6
44.6 to MG Johnson, skids through the defences, bowled him! Flat delivery from Tredwell, Johnson should have been forward, couldn't get his bat down in time and the ball juddered off stump. Australia have lost three for nine in 17 deliveries. 218/8
48.2 to CJ McKay, tries to hit down the ground, grips a little and McKay gets an inside edge on to his pad, then through to disturb the stumps! Australia have been bowled out with 10 deliveries still on the shelf, England taking the last five wickets for 18 runs. 227/10

TOTAL49.3 Ov (RR: 4.66)231/7
Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Kevin Pietersen, 2.1 ov), 2-8 (Jonathan Trott, 2.2 ov), 3-8 (Joe Root, 2.3 ov), 4-112 (Eoin Morgan, 30.5 ov), 5-126 (Michael Carberry, 33.6 ov), 6-144 (Ravi Bopara, 38.4 ov), 7-219 (Ben Stokes, 48.1 ov)
2.1 to KP Pietersen, full and straight, Pietersen plays across it and is bang in front lbw a good early strike for Australia. Simply straight delivery right up there, it seamed back a little and evaded Pietersen's flick towards midwicket, wrapped below the knee roll on the front pad and the finger went up straight away. 8/1
2.2 to IJL Trott, full and wide of off stump, Trott drive first ball and gets a thick outside edge straight to second slip, disastrous shot first ball and Trott's slump continues. That was so wide, only just inside the guidline outside off but for some reason Trott decided to go out to try and drive it. He got a thick edge to shoulder height of Finch who held a solid chance. 8/2
2.3 to JE Root, full just outside off, Root drive at it and nicks to first slip!! McKay has a hat-trick!! Unbelievable! What a moment for McKay. Dan Christian took a hat-trick in March 2012 and now McKay has repeated the feat. A full ball a couple inches outside off stump, Root, like Trott, aimed a decent-strength drive at it, got a thinner edge but still healthy enough for it to carry through to Watson who held on down low, what a moment. 8/3
48.1 to BA Stokes, bowled him, played all around it! There's a twist yet... The ball just gripped a little, nibbling in off a length and hitting the top of leg stump, there was a gap between Stokes' bat and pad and he walks off shaking his head. McKay has four-for. 219/7
38.4 to RS Bopara, Bopara drives, beaten on the inside and hit in front - given! And this one isn't worth reviewing, Bopara's painful stay is ended, he never managed to find his sea legs and was stuck on the crease, struck just in line with off stump and the ball would have decapitated middle. 144/6
30.5 to EJG Morgan, length ball, slightly cramped and Morgan has chopped on! A ball after reaching his fifty, Morgan perishes, now it's Watson's turn to roar out "C'mon!" The batsman got himself in a bit of a tangle, played with an wonky bat and instead of running the ball into the off side, could only under-edge on to the timber. 112/4
33.6 to MA Carberry, bowled him, behind the legs - Carberry's done for this time! Nathan Coulter-Nile has his first ODI wicket and it's a dismissal we don't see all that often, Carberry has been walking across his stumps all innings, tried to flick a length ball off his hips and misses it, off popped the bails. 126/5
