TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.10)162/7
Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Jonny Bairstow, 3.6 ov), 2-64 (Jos Buttler, 7.5 ov), 3-74 (Tom Banton, 9.5 ov), 4-91 (Eoin Morgan, 11.5 ov), 5-108 (Moeen Ali, 13.5 ov), 6-124 (Tom Curran, 16.5 ov), 7-147 (Dawid Malan, 18.1 ov)
7.5 to JC Buttler, gone. Agar ends Buttler's fluent knock. Shortish, outside off, telling Buttler he's free to take the single to the fielder or fetch the pull from outside off stump. Takes on the pull, and hits it straight down deep midwicket's throat. 64/2
9.5 to T Banton, down the track, and Agar gets another! Loses his shape a little while trying to loft inside-out over the covers. Makes a bit too much room with his front leg, and ends up slicing the ball off the outside half of the bat. Finch takes a good catch running to his right at cover, calling well and avoiding a collision with short extra-cover. 74/3
3.6 to JM Bairstow, gone! Extra bounce, and the interesting field works! Jumped towards the shoulder of Bairstow's bat as he tried to defend this short-of-a-length ball. Great line, offering no room at all, and the edge pops up to that man at the gully-ish short third man position. 43/1
16.5 to TK Curran, short, wide, another slower ball, I think, and Curran waits and slaps it hard but can't control it because it gets up higher than he estimates, and he ends up hitting it straight to deep cover point. 124/6
18.1 to DJ Malan, gone. Slower ball slanting away from off stump, quite short, and Malan goes in the pursuit of more quick runs. Flat-bats it pretty well, but he's looking to miss long-off running to his right, not to hit it into his hands. Excellent innings from the No. 3. 147/7
11.5 to EJG Morgan, down the track, and that's a terrific catch from Smith! Floats it in towards middle and leg, and another batsman has lost his shape in the effort to hit inside-out. First it was Banton, now it's Morgan. May have stopped on the pitch a little, or maybe he just didn't get to the pitch of it. Ends up slicing high, back over the bowler's head more or less, and long-on takes it very well with a full-tilt sprint to his right. 91/4
13.5 to MM Ali, another for Maxwell! Again that little bit of in-drift, plus a misjudgment of length. Goes for the reverse-sweep off one that's probably a little short for it. And the drift ensures it pitches closer to leg-stump than Moeen expected. Ends up top-edging and offering a dolly to short third man. 108/5

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.00)160/6
Fall of wickets: 1-98 (Aaron Finch, 10.6 ov), 2-124 (Steven Smith, 14.2 ov), 3-127 (Glenn Maxwell, 14.6 ov), 4-129 (David Warner, 15.2 ov), 5-133 (Alex Carey, 16.3 ov), 6-148 (Ashton Agar, 18.6 ov)
10.6 to AJ Finch, holes out to mid-off! Finally, the breakthrough for Archer! The short balls keep Finch's feet pegged to the crease as his weight is lured into the fuller ball. No timing on the lofted drive and Jordan times his leap well to end a fine innings. 98/1
15.2 to DA Warner, bowled him! Warner gives himself room for an inside-out drive, Archer follows him from round the wicket, and the ball cannons off the pads into the leg stump! Now then ... it's a big ask for England, but there are two brand-new batsmen at the crease.... 129/4
16.3 to AT Carey, bowled him! That's the benefit of raw pace. Fast, straight, Carey is caught flat-footed, and the zing bails go spiralling into the night sky! And now England reckon it's on!. 133/5
14.2 to SPD Smith, another big legbreak, and this time Smith holes out! Extra bounce as Smith kneeled into the slog-sweep, and Bairstow takes a fine running catch at deep midwicket. It's a start for England ... but here's Glenn Maxwell to apply a finish for Australia.... 124/2
14.6 to GJ Maxwell, flogged to short cover, and Rashid strikes with his last ball! That's a bad shot from Maxwell, no need to take on the dangerman at this stage. Making room and nailing a bottom-handed drive to Morgan. Suddenly Rash's figures look rather tidy, and well, England have the hint of the beginnings of a glimmer of optimism .... 127/3
