TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.85)157/7
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (David Warner, 0.3 ov), 2-3 (Alex Carey, 1.5 ov), 3-30 (Steven Smith, 4.6 ov), 4-79 (Aaron Finch, 11.6 ov), 5-89 (Marcus Stoinis, 12.6 ov), 6-132 (Glenn Maxwell, 18.2 ov), 7-155 (Ashton Agar, 19.5 ov)
0.3 to DA Warner, given caught behind, and Warner has reviewed straight away! He made the call in the instant he was given. Another cracking delivery, short of a length, nips back at Warner and beats the inside edge, but the replay shows that glanced the glove!. 0/1
1.5 to AT Carey, edged, caught behind! What a start from England. Carey tries to give himself a touch of room to the leg side, shapes a drive at a good-length delivery but can only get a thin nick to Buttler. 3/2
12.6 to MP Stoinis, steered to slip, Rashid again finishes his spell with a wicket! Stoinis hangs his head but that was indicative of his struggles against spin... hung back, spotted too late that it was a big-turning legbreak, could only watch in horror as he directed it straight to Malan, diving to his right. 89/5
11.6 to AJ Finch, dragged on! Short ball, coming back in at pace, Finch seems surprised by it and can only chop down into his timbers! Jordan roars in celebration, that's a big breakthrough, with Australia rebuilding nicely. 79/4
18.2 to GJ Maxwell, heaves at a length ball, nicked to the keeper! Unusual dismissal at this stage of the innings, but it'll work for England... Jordan hitting that hard length again, as he did at the death on Friday, and Maxwell is too leg side as he swings for the hills and edges through. Was seeing it well, but that's going to dent Australia's hopes of getting 150. 132/6

TOTAL18.5 Ov (RR: 8.38)158/4
Fall of wickets: 1-19 (Jonny Bairstow, 2.5 ov), 2-106 (Dawid Malan, 13.2 ov), 3-122 (Tom Banton, 15.2 ov), 4-135 (Eoin Morgan, 16.6 ov)
2.5 to JM Bairstow, he's hit his own stumps! Out hit wicket. Was a quick short ball outside off, Bairstow was beaten as he went for the pull and as his bat swung around from the shot it tapped leg stump. Odd way to go, big wicket for Australia. 19/1
16.6 to EJG Morgan, slapped on the up, straight to cover, Maxwell grabs a head-height chance! No doubt about this, Morgan shakes his head and trudges off, looking to go hard right to the end and it's given Australia another window of opportunity. 135/4
13.2 to DJ Malan, Malan plinks one to deep midwicket! Agar breaks through, chips out the in-form Malan and ends the second-wicket stand... Picked his area, looking to slog-sweep with the spin, but didn't quite get hold of it and Stoinis took a straightforward catch running around. 106/2
15.2 to T Banton, Banton holes out now! Slog-swept but picks out the man at deep backwards square... Is is happening again?? Wickets are just what Australia need, and Agar has his second. Poor shot choice, really. 122/3
