Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Aaron Finch, 4.4 ov), 2-22 (Shane Watson, 6.2 ov), 3-43 (Michael Clarke, 13.6 ov), 4-64 (Shaun Marsh, 19.4 ov), 5-112 (Glenn Maxwell, 29.2 ov), 6-167 (George Bailey, 40.5 ov), 7-176 (Matthew Wade, 42.5 ov), 8-215 (James Faulkner, 49.3 ov), 9-215 (Nathan Coulter-Nile, 49.4 ov)
4.4 to AJ Finch, gone this time! Finch can't make the most of his two lives. Excellent delivery from Broad, on a full length and nips back at Finch who is caught on the back foot and loses his off stump as he tries to get his bat down. Just checking the no-ball, but something was ground behind the line. 14/1
6.2 to SR Watson, it doesn't matter though! He edges his next ball. Length delivery outside off, a touch wide, Watson lunges into a drive on the up and only sends the nick to Buttler. Pretty poor from Watson. Two innings on this series and two ducks.. 22/2
42.5 to MS Wade, oh, Wade has been bowled behind his legs! Wade has been walking across his stumps quite often in this innings, this time he doesn't get bat on Ball and Broad pitches it just outside leg and it goes on with the angle to take the leg stump. 176/7
49.3 to JP Faulkner, Jordan gets this one too full but it's brought him a wicket! Faulkner's eyes light up with a full toss at knee height, he's got it high out towards midwicket but hasn't got enough on it to clear the fielder, who takes a comfortable catch.. 215/8
49.4 to NM Coulter-Nile, and Jordan finds himself on a hat-trick after getting this one fast and straight enough to have Coulter-Nile lbw trying to walk across and force it through leg. That looked pretty plumb at first glance.. 215/9
13.6 to MJ Clarke, all over for Clarke! The pressure brings another breakthrough. Clarke tried to heave a length ball through the leg side, it was a pretty ugly shot and takes a bottom edge into off stump which ends up out of the ground. 43/3
19.4 to SE Marsh, and he's done it! Marsh has clipped it straight to short midwicket! He's been setting a foundation, but that should might not have been part of the plan. Innocuous length ball on the pads and it was there to be whipped away through the leg side. Perhaps it might have come a little slower off the pitch, perhaps his timing was just shot, but the ball had nothing on it as it went just a little to the left of Cook, who grabbed hold quite comfortably. 64/4
29.2 to GJ Maxwell, Stokes does it again! Maxwell nicks off! He was doing reasonably well, especially with those drives through cover and dabs to third man, but this time he can't get good enough bat. It was fullish and he wanted to run it to third man again, but only manages a healthy edge through to the keeper.. 112/5
40.5 to GJ Bailey, Bailey tries to lift the scoring rate here and he's perished doing it, he's planted the front foot and tried to crunch Stokes straight down the ground but drags it towards mid-on instead, and Stuart Broad takes a good catch.. 167/6

Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Ian Bell, 5.6 ov), 2-29 (Ben Stokes, 8.3 ov), 3-90 (Alastair Cook, 23.5 ov), 4-154 (Eoin Morgan, 35.4 ov), 5-157 (Joe Root, 37.5 ov), 6-174 (Jos Buttler, 42.3 ov), 7-194 (Tim Bresnan, 45.5 ov), 8-204 (Stuart Broad, 46.6 ov), 9-209 (Ravi Bopara, 48.4 ov), 10-212 (James Tredwell, 49.4 ov)
8.3 to BA Stokes, picks out midwicket! Australia getting an early foothold. A short ball, holds in the surface and Stokes is early into his pull then can't keep the ball down. Like Bell, a poor stroke on this surface.. 29/2
46.6 to SCJ Broad, but McKay strikes back! This match just keeps swinging from one way to another! Broad has backed off just a quarter of a step and sort of reached at a straight one, and McKay gets it through to clip the top of middle stump. 204/8
48.4 to RS Bopara, beaten outside off! Bopara has again just tried to tickle it away and doesn't get bat on ball. In fact there's a stumping appeal. Has Bopara lifted his foot? Oh this is close. Wade hasn't whipped the bails off, the ball has just ricocheted off him down onto the top of the bails. The third umpire is called on and this is very close. A few different replays are needed here but Bopara did lift his back foot and it was in the air when the bail was dislodged! That's out!. 209/9
5.6 to IR Bell, from beauty to the beast! The danger of driving on this pitch, it wasn't a half volley and Bell tried to go on the up and only succeeded in spooning a catch to mid-off. Careless really from Bell, having already been given warning signs with a couple of leading edges.. 23/1
23.5 to AN Cook, he's spooned it to short cover! Coulter-Nile is elated as he sends the England captain packing. It was a good length ball, but Cook was early into his drive through the covers. He tried removing the bottom hand off the bat, but that didn't help as the ball strikes the blade a little too high and Bailey dives forward to complete a good grab. 90/3
42.3 to JC Buttler, Buttler is gone now! England are digging themselves into a hole here! A shortish ball from Coulter-Nile gets Buttler's eyes lighting up and he goes for the pull, it comes out of the middle of the bat but not with enough elevation and McKay at deep midwicket takes the catch. 174/6
35.4 to EJG Morgan, there's the wicket Australia needed! And it's Morgan, he's driven this uppishly - but not uppishly enough - to mid-off. He looked like he was trying to clear the field but it's just sailed into the hands of Watson for an easy catch. 154/4
37.5 to JE Root, oh boy, now Root is gone! Does this match have a twist in the ending? Root has walked across his stumps and tried to paddle down to fine leg but he didn't get much on it and Doherty at short fine leg in the circle had no trouble taking that. 157/5
49.4 to JC Tredwell, edged behind and Australia have won! Oh, what a fightback from Australia, it finishes with Tredwell backing off a touch and swinging hard outside off and a thick edge has been taken by Matthew Wade.. 212/10
