Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Michael Lumb, 3.2 ov), 2-30 (Luke Wright, 4.2 ov), 3-42 (Alex Hales, 5.4 ov), 4-55 (Eoin Morgan, 6.6 ov), 5-63 (Joe Root, 8.3 ov), 6-87 (Ravi Bopara, 12.2 ov), 7-96 (Jos Buttler, 15.1 ov), 8-130 (Tim Bresnan, 19.5 ov), 9-130 (James Tredwell, 19.6 ov)
15.1 to JC Buttler, pitched up, shaping in and that's out! Buttler didn't move his feet, think Coulter-Nile just cut his fingers over the ball and it was a pretty straight forward decision. 96/7
4.2 to LJ Wright, full length wide of off stump again, Wright smashes it into the off side and Hodge takes a blinding catch diving down to his right, fabulous take and Wright fails again, nailed the stroke but a foot off the ground was enough for Hodge. 30/2
3.2 to MJ Lumb, full length on off stump, Lumb tries to heave over the leg side but puts it straight up in the air and mid-on takes a solid catch. Lively from Lumb but he's totally miscued that trying to pick a ball up over the leg side. 24/1
5.4 to AD Hales, full on the stumps, Hales aims a big swing towards the leg side and gets a huge top edge that swirls down to third man and Starc holds the chance very well. That hung in the air for a long time but Starc steadied himself just inside the boundary and took it down to his left with two hands. 42/3
19.5 to TT Bresnan, bowled him, via his legs! Bresnan tried to get cute, stepping outside off and attempting to dab the ball fine on the leg side, failed to connect with the bat and it clipped his back leg before ricocheting into the stumps. 130/8
19.6 to JC Tredwell, timber! Hazlewood has four! Full and straight does for Tredwell, who tried to launch his first ball down the ground and missed it completely. The stumps are a mess and so is this England innings. 130/9
12.2 to RS Bopara, on the stumps, Bopara reaches for the slog-sweep... and he's picked out deep midwicket! Good bit of bowling from Muirhead again, think it dipped on Bopara, who wasn't able to control the shot, sent it flat and at a comfortable height to the man. 87/6

TOTAL14.5 Ov (RR: 8.83, 63 Mins)131/2
Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Aaron Finch, 5.1 ov), 2-53 (Glenn Maxwell, 6.5 ov)
5.1 to AJ Finch, full delivery, Finch tries to play to leg and it hurries onto him slightly, struck on the pad and given out lbw! Seemed to strike him relatively high on the pad, but, no, knee roll and it was pretty straight too so a fair call on first look. I think Finch might have been forward, caught on the crease somewhat. But Hawk Eye has the ball going over the top so the batsman a little unlucky. 48/1
6.5 to GJ Maxwell, length ball, Maxwell steps inside it and swings into the leg side, Bresnan is out at deep-backward square and takes the catch running to his right. More mindless batting from Maxwell, nowhere near the elevation needed on that stroke and he holes out in the deep. 53/2
