Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Mackenzie Harvey, 1.5 ov), 2-25 (Sam Harper, 3.3 ov), 3-31 (Aaron Finch, 5.2 ov), 4-50 (Tom Cooper, 9.1 ov), 5-74 (Dan Christian, 12.2 ov), 6-77 (Beau Webster, 13.4 ov), 7-90 (Mohammad Nabi, 15.3 ov)
12.2 to DT Christian, slower bouncer, and the bowling change and the change of pace have brought the breakthrough. Digs it into the pitch, and it gets up to shoulder height while losing a lot of pace off the pitch. Christian plays a non-committal hook, and only manages a top-edge through to the keeper. 74/5
1.5 to MW Harvey, and that's the first wicket. Fairly flat outside off, and Harvey tries to take on long-on with a slog-sweep. Doesn't connect nearly as well as he'd like, and Chris Jordan takes a super catch, running forward and to his left and diving forward to catch it inches off the ground. 15/1
13.4 to BJ Webster, and that's Holt's first stumping at the senior level. Rushes out of his crease too early, and Cook bowls the topspinner. Pushes at it, well in front of his body, playing for turn, and it sneaks through between bat and pad, with a bit of extra bounce, and Holt has to adjust to collect and stump Webster, but he's so far out of his crease he can take all the time he wants. 77/6
3.3 to SB Harper, slower one, on a length and at the stumps, and Harper has to go. Slogs across the line, misses, and it crashes into middle and leg. 25/2
5.2 to AJ Finch, gone, Jordan gets Finch with a bit of extra bounce in the corridor. Went for the back-foot punch with an angled bat, without really getting close to the line, and Holt takes his first catch, a simple one straight to him at waist height. 31/3
9.1 to TLW Cooper, gone! There have been a few leading edges on this pitch, and this time it pops up in the air, straight back to the bowler. Flat legbreak on leg stump, and Cooper - not for the first time today - closes his bat face too early looking for the flick. 50/4
15.3 to Mohammad Nabi, length ball wide of off, and Nabi looks to go over extra-cover, but long-off is wide too, and he doesn't hit it wide enough of that fielder. Jordan takes a good low catch there, tumbling to his left. 90/7

TOTAL19.1 Ov (RR: 5.89)113
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Shane Watson, 0.4 ov), 2-15 (Jason Sangha, 2.5 ov), 3-44 (Anton Devcich, 8.2 ov), 4-45 (Chris Green, 8.3 ov), 5-68 (Callum Ferguson, 11.5 ov), 6-96 (Baxter Holt, 15.3 ov), 7-102 (Chris Jordan, 16.1 ov), 8-108 (Daniel Sams, 17.4 ov), 9-110 (Jonathan Cook, 18.3 ov), 10-113 (Fawad Ahmed, 19.1 ov)
0.4 to SR Watson, gone! The shot was on, but the placement was off. It was full enough and wide enough for the on-the-up cover drive, but he picked out the man at extra-cover. 4/1
2.5 to JJS Sangha, not the greatest shot, but how's that for a sensational catch?!?!? Back of a length wide of off stump, and it was too far outside off for Sangha to play that hoick over the leg side. Ends up slicing it over point, and it's probably dropping down some 3/4ths of the way to the boundary. Mackenzie Harvey turns around, runs towards the boundary with his back to the batsman, and catches it as it drops down from behind him. 15/2
15.3 to BJ Holt, short ball outside off, a fair way outside off, and Holt, trying to drag it from there and pull, can only hit it down the throat of deep square leg. An innings of promise from a really promising player. 96/6
11.5 to CJ Ferguson, a good-looking shot, looked like he timed it really well, but he's ended up picking out deep midwicket. Fullish, outside off, goes for the big hit over the leg side and ends up hitting it straight to the man on the rope. 68/5
16.1 to CJ Jordan, England 1, England 0. It's full, outside off, and he clears his front leg and hammers a big drive down the ground, but straight to the man at long-off. 102/7
8.2 to AP Devcich, tossed up on off stump, and the mounting required rate has done for Devcich. Clears his front leg and sinks down on his back knee for the slog-sweep, but it's too full to really get the elevation he wants, and there's also a long-on in place for exactly that kind of shot. 44/3
19.1 to Fawad Ahmed, and, appropriately enough, he's the man to end it. Fawad steps out, and he fires it wide. Beats the desperate reach-out drive, and Harper does the rest. 113/10
17.4 to DR Sams, boom, off stump pegged back. Full offcutter, and it's too full for the cleared-front-leg big hit over the leg side. Past the inside edge and it's bye bye Daniel Sams. 108/8
