BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Brett Lee904324.77343131
20.4 to AJ Strauss, that's the end of Strauss, Lee strikes, a short of length ball around middle, Strauss was initially looking to pull that to square leg, then decides to play with a straight bat, the ball loops off the bat towards midwicket where Clarke is waiting. 131/3
46.2 to TT Bresnan, short and outside off, Bresnan looks to slash that one, gets a top-edge which sails to Doherty at third man, Lee is thrilled as he thought he had Davies caught at third man earlier before replays showed he had overstepped, no such worries this time. 271/8
Doug Bollinger905716.33233040
39.4 to MH Yardy, finally Yardy perishes to the pull, he has mishit several of them today, this time he gets hold of it and it carries only as far as Michael Hussey at deep midwicket. 236/6
David Hussey604227.00153200
12.1 to SM Davies, and that's exactly what Hussey has produced. Davies' lottery run comes to an end. Hussey's speared this in off a round-arm, flat from wide of the crease, round the wicket, and it straightens past an attempted mow through cow corner and clattered into the furniture. Australia will breathe easier now.. 90/1
14.2 to IJL Trott, a smart catch from Haddin ends Trott's innings, a short of length ball pitches outside off and turns in gently, Trott is on the back foot quickly and looks to guide it towards third man, gets an outside edge and Haddin snaps it up, Hussey helping Australia pull things back, not doing his World Cup chances any harm here. 100/2
Mitchell Johnson7.405326.91195150
47.5 to GP Swann, and another catch for Doherty, can England play out the 50 overs? there have inly one wicket left now as Swann holes out, a slower ball from Johnson, Swann looks to clear the in-field but can't chip it past Doherty at mid-on. 278/9
49.4 to CT Tremlett, the end of the innings, Tremlett had cleared the front leg to attempt another monster hit, it was a short of length ball from Johnson, takes the top edge and goes through at a nice height to Haddin. 294/10
Shane Watson804405.50194000
Xavier Doherty704005.71141100
Steven Smith301224.00101000
30.1 to IR Bell, soft dismissal that, Smith has struck, a length ball, Bell was looking to chip it inside-out over extra cover, he doesn't get the height he wanted, ends up hitting it towards Clarke at extra cover, a threatening partnership has been broken. 174/4
32.5 to EJG Morgan, Smith has another, a short of length ball, Morgan played that off the back foot after making room, he jabs it hard but in the air and towards White at short cover, White dives to his right to snap that up, that's another wicket and Australia are the team with the edge now, England have frittered that powerful start, Pietersen needs to play a big innings now. 186/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Tim Bresnan1007127.10297121
38.5 to MJ Clarke, chipped straight to cover! England strike, Clarke departs. Bresnan went full as Clarke stepped away to try and open up the off side, he drove well but in the air and Shahzad didn't have to move, just sticking his hands up to hold the catch.. 213/2
42.3 to MEK Hussey, slower ball, chipped in the air and Tremlett takes the catch at square leg! The match turns again, this could change everything. A quick innings from Hussey but Australia still want 51 and there could be a few jitters in the dressing room now. 244/4
Chris Tremlett1006706.70256000
Ajmal Shahzad9.105115.56314210
39.5 to SPD Smith, a wild slash from Smith, a good, diving catch from Yardy at short third man! The ball was full and he tried to go over the off side in typical fashion, but a thick edge flew to Yardy, who tumbled to his left and held on well.. 220/3
Michael Yardy905305.88202200
Graeme Swann1004214.20292000
19.4 to BJ Haddin, slog sweep from Haddin, and he's picked out Shahzad at deep square leg! There's the breakthrough for England. The partnership is broken at 110, and Haddin departs for 39. It's not been the best knock from him, but he was doing a job and ticking along quite efficiently with Watson.. 110/1
