Fall of wickets: 1-48 (Aaron Finch, 6.4 ov), 2-65 (Glenn Maxwell, 8.2 ov), 3-118 (Ben Cutting, 13.2 ov), 4-130 (Cameron White, 14.1 ov), 5-139 (Brad Hodge, 15.4 ov), 6-139 (Dan Christian, 15.6 ov)
8.2 to GJ Maxwell, swings again but Maxwell has holed out to long-on! The ball was back of a length, Maxwell tried to cross-batter it again, came high off the bat and straight to the man running in from the fence. Another frenzied failure from Maxwell. 65/2
15.4 to BJ Hodge, short again but this time pulled straight to long leg where Dernbach doesn't have to move to take it at head height, solid catch and the short ball works this time, the shot was pretty firmly struck but he picked out the fielder with perfection. 139/5
15.6 to DT Christian, full length, nips back a little, Christian pokes at it in the crease, and gets a thick inside edge that takes middle stump another wicket for England who are just coming back into this. Very poor footwork, i.e. none, from Christian. 139/6
14.1 to CL White, full down the leg side, White flicks at it, there's a polite enquiry and it's given out! The slightest of edges according to Snicko but that a very good decision from the umpire. Innocent little flash down the leg side and Jordan has picked up a cheap wicket. 130/4
6.4 to AJ Finch, on the attack, doesn't get hold of a pull and plops the ball to mid-on! England have got their aggressor, Bresnan winkles him out with a half-tracker, miscalculation from Finch, who tried to pull from outside off, maybe wasn't quite short enough either and spooned to the fielder. 48/1
13.2 to BCJ Cutting, down the track, punches firmly back towards the bowler but Root reaches out to his left and clings onto a rifling chance that was struck very well but evidently too straight and Root intervened to perfect effect. 118/3

Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Luke Wright, 2.5 ov), 2-19 (Alex Hales, 3.3 ov), 3-25 (Ben Stokes, 4.6 ov), 4-60 (Joe Root, 8.6 ov), 5-79 (Jos Buttler, 11.6 ov), 6-82 (Eoin Morgan, 12.4 ov), 7-92 (Ravi Bopara, 13.5 ov), 8-98 (Tim Bresnan, 14.3 ov), 9-104 (Stuart Broad, 16.1 ov), 10-111 (Jade Dernbach, 17.2 ov)
2.5 to LJ Wright, drops short, pulled... straight to deep square leg! So Wright gets another single-figure score, despite moving up the order, he was in position to play the shot, went aerial but can't have been looking at the field. Cutting did a two-step to his right and then settled for the take. 11/1
3.3 to AD Hales, now Hales has picked out deep square leg, this time on the run! Sweetly timed, a little pick-up swivel pull, but not enough to clear the boundary, there is only one man out there but he made good ground and England lose both openers in similar fashion. 19/2
13.5 to RS Bopara, huge swing at a full ball, gets a huge inside edge into his pad and it trickles slowly into leg stump and that is a very unfortunate way to go. The ball cannoned of the inside of his pad and agonisingly rolled steadily towards the stumps, glanced the base of the leg stick and off dropped the bail. 92/7
4.6 to BA Stokes, heave ho, off he goes, a loopy leading edge caught on the edge of the ring! Stokes laid the dynamite but only succeeded in blowing himself up, swinging hard and falling harder, the ball looped towards point and Cutting took an excellent catch back-pedalling. 25/3
8.6 to JE Root, off balance and launched into the sky towards deep midwicket, where Cutting is under it again! Root's labours are over, a knock that was scratchier than a pair of woollen undercrackers, scooped to leg and again nowhere near clearing the boundary rider. 60/4
12.4 to EJG Morgan, length ball swung to leg, Morgan doesn't get all of this, in comes Starc from deep square leg, dives forward and takes the catch but of course when it's close, which this is, they will go upstairs to have a check and there's every chance this could be overturned but thankfully not because the catch looked clean. A fine take in fact, very sharp work, as has been all of Australia's fielding. 82/6
11.6 to JC Buttler, length ball, Buttler steps to leg and heaves over the on side but not far enough and he holes out to Maxwell at cow corner, simply not enough bat on that trying to clear the longest part of the ground. 79/5
14.3 to TT Bresnan, swing outside off, misses courtesy of the turn, Wade has the bails off and there's a strong appeal for a stumping and Wade was sharp to remove the bails as Bresnan dragged his bag foot a good two inches out of his ground and fails to get back in time. 98/8
16.1 to SCJ Broad, length ball, Broad goes back to try and pull, misses and loses middle stump some sharp turn on that, Broad beaten all ends up and has to go. Nicely bowled. 104/9
