Cummins to Hales, out Lbw!! Another beautiful ball from Cummins, yorker aiming at the base of the stums, Hales can't dig it out and the ball catches him low on the ad. There was a loud aeal but umire Dharmasena raised his finger after giving it a thought. The angle though could have taken it down leg, but Hales didn't go for the review. This is also the third time in five innings that Hales has gotten out to Cummins. Becoming quite the bunny there. Hales lbw b Cummins 0(2)

4

Cummins to James Taylor, FOUR, lovely shot from Taylor to get off the mark. Full and angling in, Taylor comes across and clis it in the ga between mid-wicket and mid-on, runs away to the fence

4

Cummins to James Taylor, FOUR, caressed! Excellent shot from Taylor. itched u and just outside off, Taylor leans forward, gets to the itch of the ball and drives it beautifully to the left of mid-off, no need to run for those

4

Cummins to James Taylor, FOUR, back-to-back fours for Taylor! On a length and outside off, Taylor drives it on the u, the ball hits the square hard and bounces over the fielders at cover-oint and backward oint, runs away to the fence in a jiffy

4

Cummins to Jason Roy, FOUR, now Roy gets his first boundary of the innings. itched u outside off, Roy comes forward and drives it in the ga between cover and mid-off, the ball hits the fence in no time

4

Pattinson to ames Taylor, FOUR, poor delivery from Pattinson, bowls a half-volley on the pads and Taylor doesn't miss out, he clips it to the left of mid-wicket, who gives chase but the ball wins the race

4

Pattinson to ames Taylor, FOUR, short and well wide outside off, Taylor's eyes lit up seeing the width, he cracks the cut to the left of cover-point, who dives across but fails to get a hand on it. Runs away for another boundary

4

Pattinson to ames Taylor, FOUR, a misfield costs Australia four runs! Slightly slower from Pattinson but it was short and wide again, Taylor cuts it in the air and the ball drops in front of backward point, where Maxwell allows the ball to go through his hands and it runs away to the fence

4

to Jason Roy, FOUR, lovely shot from Roy. Half-volley outside off, Roy leans forward and drives it through extra cover, races away to the boundary rope

4

to Jason Roy, FOUR, lucky for Roy! On a good length and just outside off, Roy once again was lured to go for the drive, he goes hard at it, gets an inside edge that rolls away past the leg stump and runs away fine. He is lucky that he didn't drag it back onto the stumps

4

to Jason Roy, FOUR, glorious drive! Angling in on the stumps, Roy comes on the front foot and drives it past the non-striker, mid-on had no chance of stopping that it races away to the fence. 50 also comes up for England

4

Pattinson to ason Roy, FOUR, on a length and outside off, Roy shuffles across and heaves it over mid-on, one bounce and the ball rams into the camera by the rope as well

4

Pattinson to ason Roy, FOUR, exquisite! Half-volley from Pattinson and Roy latches onto it. He drives it to the left of mid-off and the fielder had no chance of cutting that off, another boundary for the batsman

4

to Jason Roy, FOUR, up and over mid-off! This was a length ball just outside off, Roy comes forward and lofts it through the line, the ball bounces twice before it hits the fence

4

to James Taylor, FOUR, nice way to end the mandatory powerplay. Taylor gives the charge this time around, converts it into a length delivery and lofts it over mid-off, another four runs for Taylor

W

Cummins to Jason Roy, out Caught by Finch!! Cummins comes back for his second sell and strikes first ball. The 72-run stand is broken. This was a scrambled seam delivery on a length and outside off, might have extracted some extra bounce as well. Roy was looking to drive, but checked his shot at the last moment. He ends u sooning it in the air and Finch at mid-off takes the simlest of catches. Jason Roy c Finch b Cummins 36(33) [4s-7]

4

Marsh to James Taylor, FOUR, lovely shot from Taylor! This was pitched up and right in the slot, Taylor leans forward and drives it to the right of mid-off, who had no chance of stopping that. Runs away to the fence in a jiffy

W

Marsh to James Taylor, out Caught by Wade!! Third time in the series, Taylor falls for a score in the forties. It was not a wicket-taking delivery by any means, but Marsh and the Australians wouldn't mind it one bit. This was angling down the leg-side, Taylor comes across and looks to tickle it fine, gets enough bat on it but Wade flies to his left, extends his left-arm and takes a one-handed stunner. England are in a spot of bother here. Taylor walks back bearing a disappointed look on his face. James Taylor c Wade b Marsh 41(42) [4s-8]

4

Marsh to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, "catch" shouted Marsh, but it was over Maxi at backward point. There were two fielders in the point region, Morgan went chasing at a wide delivery, slashed it in the air and cleared Maxwell, sweeper was square and had no chance of stopping that

6

to Eoin Morgan, SIX, massive! England needed that as the pressure was being built. Morgan doesn't look at the ball, he knew that he had connected. Flighted on the stumps, Morgan kneels down and slog sweeps it over deep mid-wicket

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, fabulous shot! Morgan slowly starting to switch gears. Flighted outside off, Morgan drives through extra cover, sweeper tries to get around and stop it, but can't. Good over for England, 13 runs came off it

4

Pattinson to Stokes, FOUR, peach! Stokes had no clue about that, short of length and climbs up on Stokes, who was squared up and the outside edge flies through the vacant slip region. Third man was square and couldn't get there in time

4

Pattinson to Stokes, FOUR, second boundary of the over. Poor delivery and deserved the treatment. Well down the leg-side, Stokes swivels and helps it along the way, no chance for the fielder in the deep

4

Pattinson to Stokes, FOUR, third boundary of the over and it was the best of the lot. Pitched up close to off, Stokes presents the full face of the bat and drives, the timed it beautifully and placed it straight down the ground

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, not convincing, but effective. Another short delivery from , Morgan was aiming to go over mid-wicket with the pull, instead flat-bats it over the bowler, mid-on was inside the ring and his chase goes in vain

4

to Stokes, FOUR, that is the boundary they were looking for. Short of a length around off, Stokes is quick to rock back and pull it over mid-wicket, there was a fielder in the deep, but he was square

OT

Marsh to Eoin Morgan, 2 runs, fifty for Morgan. His third consecutive fifty. Raises his bat to the dressing room, shakes hands with Stokes and gets on with things, short of length and outside off, Morgan shuffles across and cuts it past the diving backward point fielder, completes the second run with ease

4

Marsh to Stokes, FOUR, that ruins a good over. Too full and too straight from Marsh, Stokes walks across his sticks, gets inside the line and clips it behind square leg, no chance for the fielder in the deep

W

Marsh to Stokes, out Bowled!! How many times does he do it? A partnership is going on, Marsh comes on and breaks it. He is delighted and runs straight to his skipper to celebrate. Stokes is disappointed with himself. An off-speed yorker aimed at the base of off-stump, Stokes is early into the shot, the ball sneaks under the bat and crashes into the off-pole. Stokes b Marsh 41(54) [4s-5]

4

Marsh to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, cracking shot! Marsh goes short and wide outside off, Morgan reaches for the cut, places it to the right of backward point and doesn't bother to run. Second time in as many overs, Marsh has conceded a four off the last ball

6

to Eoin Morgan, SIX, that is out of the ground. Some connection that was from Morgan. He charges down the wicket, converts it into a length delivery, swings through the line and clears the long-on fence. That landed on the roof. To get such power even with the back leg in the air, terrific!

4

Marsh to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, stand and deliver stuff from the England skipper, full and in the slot, Morgan uses his hands to reach it and smashes it over Bairstow, no chance for long-off

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, oh that's nicely done by Morgan. Nothing wrong with the delivery, length just outside off stump, Morgan allows the ball to come, watches it nicely onto the bat and just opens the face at the last moment to run it fine past the keeper to the third man boundary

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, edgedddd but safe. Lucky for Morgan that it didn't go to hand. No one at slip, it was a shortish slower delivery, Morgan goes for the cut, gets a thick edge that goes past the diving Matthew Wade to the third man boundary

4

Pattinson to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, shot! Such a delightful hit that from the England skipper. Full and outside off stump, Morgan leans forward and drives all along the ground through cover, sweeper cover runs to his left but it beats him comfortably

4

Pattinson to Bairstow, FOUR, cracking drive on the rise. Wow! That rockets to the fence. Fullish and outside off stump, Bairstow is nicely balanced as he leans forward into the shot and sends it to the left of the man at cover

4

Marsh to Bairstow, FOUR, overpitched and punished. Full and outside off stump, Bairstow leans forward and drives it hard, this time to the right of the man at short cover and mid-off had no chance

W

Cummins to Eoin Morgan, out Caught by Maxwell!! What a catch by Glenn Maxwell at backward oint. Needed something secial to dismiss Morgan and Maxwell has taken a stunner. The crowd acknowledges Morgan's effort and gives him a standing ovation as if he's made a double-hundred in a Test match. Full and outside off stum, Morgan reaches out and square-drives it hard, it looked as if it was heading for four, but Maxwell dives full length to his right and takes it horizontal to the ground with his right hand. End of an excellent knock from Morgan. Is this the wicket Australia needed to turn things around? Eoin Morgan c Maxwell b Cummins 92(92) [4s-8 6s-2]

4

Cummins to Bairstow, FOUR, cut away nicely and it's in the ga as well. Short of a length delivery outside off stum, Bairstow goes on the back foot and cuts it to the left of the diving backward oint fielder and third man had no chance

6

Cummins to Bairstow, no ball, SIX, full toss, heled away all the way for six and it's a no-ball for height as well. This was well above waist height, Bairstow sends it over backward square leg, the fielder in the dee was interested for a moment but it sailed well above his head. Free-hit coming u

6

to Moeen Ali, SIX, taken by the fielder, oh he steps on the rope. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Moeen Ali gets down on one knee and slog-sweeps it hard, it went flat to Burns at deep mid-wicket, Burns took it above his head, but the momentum was taking him back and he stepped on the rope, he takes a tumble and looks very disappointed

W

to Bairstow, out Caught by Wade!! England lose another set batsman. Flighted delivery outside off stump, it was very full to reverse-sweep, but Bairstow goes for it and gloves it to the keeper. There was a mark on Hot-Spot and a small spike on Real-Time Snicko as well. Australia reviewed and got the on-field call overturned. Bairstow c Wade b 31(27) [4s-3 6s-1]

4

to Plunkett, FOUR, in the airrrrr but in the gap. Flighted delivery just outside off stump, Plunkett swings across the line and sends it to the left of the man at mid-wicket, off the mark in style

D

Cummins to Moeen Ali, no run, droed. Wade, who took a stunner, sills this crucial catch. Short of a length delivery outside off stum, Moeen Ali tries to run this down to third man, lays away from the body and gets a thick outside edge, Wade dives to his left, it went very low to him, he got his left hand to it but couldn't hold on. In fact the relay shows that it hit him near the wrist

4

Pattinson to Plunkett, FOUR, Plunkett's not going to hang around. Length delivery in the slot, width on offer as well, Plunkett drives over the man at short cover and it crashes into the fence. Great start to the over for England

OT

Pattinson to Moeen Ali, leg byes, 1 run, appeal for LBW, not given and Australia have reviewed. Poor call from Smith as the ball clearly pitched outside leg. "Fair delivery. Can I get Hot-Spot? There's nothing there. Can I get RTS please? No bat involved, can we go to ball-tracking? Pitching outside leg, Michael stay with your original decision," says third umpire oel Wilson. Length delivery on the stumps, Ali misses the flick and is hit on the pad but the ball pitched outside leg

6

Pattinson to Plunkett, SIX, wowwwww! What a timely hit! Full and on the stumps, Plunkett muscles it high into the sky and sends it deep into the crowd beyond the long-on boundary

W

Cummins to lunkett, out Caught by Maxwell!! If his catch to dismiss Morgan was great, this is sectacular. My word! He was so cool under ressure, desite being so close to the roe. Wicket number four for Cummins. Good length delivery on the stums, lunkett goes for a slog and mistimes it comletely, it went high u in the air, Maxwell jumed at dee mid-wicket and reverse-cued it, but he was too close and was falling back, he released the ball before he steed beyond the roe, then recovered quickly, ensured that his feet were off the ground and grabbed it again with his left hand before juming back in. He made it look so easy there. retty needless shot from lunkett. Is there a twist in the tale? lunkett c Maxwell b Cummins 17(10) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

to Moeen Ali, FOUR, and Moeen Ali gets a boundary. Flighted delivery on the off stump, the batsman gets down on one knee and sweeps it all along the ground through backward square leg, fine leg runs to his right but loses the race

6

to Willey, SIX, in the airrrrr and he's muscled that. What a way to finish the game! This is an excellent run chase from England and they've now squared the series 2-2, with one game to go. Slower ball right in the slot, Willey waits for the ball and hits it a long way back over long-on

4

to Finch, leg byes, FOUR, errs in line, there is a bit of swing for him. Starts on leg-stump and curls in, Finch can't meet with the glance, the ball brushes the pad and runs away to the fine leg fence

4

to Finch, FOUR, same kind of delivery as the previous one, but Finch got some wood this time around, straying down leg, Finch glances it fine and past the man at 45. He opens his account with a boundary

W

to Burns, out Bowled!! That should be Taylor's wicket. The run he saved the previous ball kept Burns on strike. It was a nothing shot. A harmless short of length delivery angled across off, Burns was neither going hard nor looking to defend, he just hung his bat away from the body, the ball took the inside edge and clattered into the stumps. is delighted. Burns b 2(7)

W

to Smith, out Lbw!! Top delivery! Trouble for Australia. pumps his fist and the whole England team celebrate with him. Smith has a discussion with Finch whether to review or not, decides against it and walks back. An inswinging yorker aimed right at the base of stumps, Smith is late in bringing his bat down, is hit on the back foot, ball would have crashed into middle. There were two sounds, but it was the bat making contact with the turf. Smith lbw b 5(12)

4

Wood to Finch, FOUR, lovely shot! Back of a length delivery outside off, Finch goes on his toes and punches through extra cover, it was sweetly timed as the ball kept racing away to the fence. That should ease some nerves in the Australian dressing room

W

to Finch, out Caught by Bairstow!! Third wicket for . Australia slip further. The bowler went down after delivering the ball, but still turned back to appeal. It was comical, but not if you are an Australian supporter. On a length and in channel around off, Finch could have let it pass, but instead goes poking at it, the thin outside edge is gobbled up by Bairstow. Finch c Bairstow b 15(27) [4s-2]

4

Wood to Maxwell, FOUR, Maxwell wanted to hit this out of the park, but has to be content with four. He backs away to the leg-side, Wood follows him, the batsman manages to splice it over the bowler, Morgan gives chase from mid-off only to come second

D

Wood to Maxwell, 1 run, was that a drop? Yes, it was. Jason Roy is the culprit. Wood is a disappointed man. Goes wide of the crease and angles it in, Maxwell is drawn into the booming drive, the outside edge goes low to the right of second slip, Roy is late to react, he gets both hands, but the ball escapes. How costly would that be?

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, that is a Maxi special. Nothing much wrong with the delivery, on a length just outside off, he opens the bat face at the last instant and drives through cover-point, was in the air but in the gap as well

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, back-to-back boundaries and Maxwell is already hurting England. Pitched up outside off, Maxwell leans forward and drives through extra cover, placed it wide of Morgan at mid-off and picked up four more

4

to Bailey, FOUR, overpitched outside off, Bailey gets a good stride forward, bends his back leg and drives to deep extra cover, Taylor runs to his right, dives and gets a hand, but the ball hits his body and rolls away to the fence

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, greeted with a boundary. The runs have started flowing for Australia. Pitched up just outside off, Maxwell comes on the front foot and caresses through extra cover, the timing takes it to the fence

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, fabulous shot! This counter-attack from Maxi has surprised England. Fuller and on off, Maxwell presents a straight bat and drives straight down the ground, wide of mid-on and the ball raced away

OT

to Bailey, no run, England have wasted their only review. It was Bairstow and who convinced Morgan to go for the review. Nips back in from a length, Bailey falls over on the flick, is rapped on the pads. The impact was on middle and leg, the ball was sliding down and height was an issue as per Hawk-Eye

4

to Bailey, FOUR, shortish and outside off, Bailey had the width to free his arms, he slaps it in front of square on the off-side, sweeper had no chance of stopping that

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, superb shot! Nice way to end the over. Fullish and around off, Maxwell moves forward and drives on the up to the right of mid-off, the timing was excellent as the ball raced to the fence

4

to Bailey, FOUR, lovely shot from Bailey. Full and just outside off, Bailey leans forward and caresses the drive through the gap between short extra cover and mid-off, there was no stopping that one

4

to Maxwell, FOUR, smashed! This was banged in short and Maxwell was hurried for pace there, he pulls it and sends it in front of square on the on-side and it races away to the fence, no chance for the fielder in the deep

4

to Bailey, FOUR, great shot to end the over. This was short and well outside off, Bailey stays back and cuts it to the left of backward point, third man runs to his right and runs away to the fence

6

Rashid to Maxwell, SIX, that's been tonked! Fifty for Maxwell as well. Another friendly full toss from Rashid and this time Maxwell doesn't miss out, he heaves it over the deep mid-wicket fence for a maximum

6

Rashid to Maxwell, SIX, a long hop from Rashid and it gets the punishment it deserved. Short and well wide outside off, Maxwell rocks back and pulls it over the deep mid-wicket fence for another six. he didn't quite get it off the middle but it had enough to clear the fence

4

Rashid to Maxwell, FOUR, Maxi is turning it on now. Full delivery well wide outside off, Maxwell lofts it inside-out over extra cover, long-off runs to his left but the ball beats him to the fence

4

Ali to Maxwell, FOUR, 100 of the partnership comes up for these two. This was tossed up by Ali, Maxwell brings out the reverse sweep and sends it square of the wicket on the off-side, another boundary for Maxwell

4

Rashid to Maxwell, FOUR, in the air and just over the fielder! This was a full toss outside off, Maxwell comes down the track and whips it over a leaping short mid-wicket, it wasn't that high but just clears the man there, runs away to the fence

4

Ali to Bailey, FOUR, floated up around off, Bailey kneels down and reverse sweeps it in the gap between backward point and short third man, no need to run for those

OT

to Bailey, 1 run, 17th ODI fifty for Bailey! This was shortish and outside off, Bailey stays back and cuts it to sweeper cover for a single

W

Ali to Maxwell, out Bowled!! One shot too many for Maxwell. He fails to get to a hundred, but his knock has pulled Australia out of trouble. This was the quicker one from Ali on leg stump line, Maxwell tried to play the reverse sweep and was fooled by the extra pace. He fails to connect, the ball brushes the thigh pad and knocks the leg stump out of the ground. Ali is delighted to see the back of Big Show. Maxwell b Ali 85(64) [4s-10 6s-2]

6

Rashid to Bailey, SIX, smashed! Bailey comes dancing down the track, gets to the pitch of this floaty delivery just outside off and lofts it through the line, sends it soaring over the long-on fence for a maximum

4

to Bailey, FOUR, overpitched and punished! bowls this way too full, Bailey doesn't try to over-hit the ball, just waits for the ball to come and clips it to the right of the man at mid-wicket, it went at a catchable height past the infield but it was in the gap

W

to Mitchell Marsh, out Caught by Willey!! That's an easy catch for Willey. The big-hitting Mitch Marsh walks back early. Full ball from , Marsh plays across the line as he tries to send this over wide mid-on/mid-wicket, gets a leading edge, because the side of the bat is so thick, it goes all the way to long-off, who reverse-cupped it easily. This wicket could make a difference of 15-20 runs to the final score as Marsh has the ability to score quickly towards the end. Mitchell Marsh c Willey b 17(24)

W

to Bailey, out Caught&Bowled!! Oh dear! What have you done George Bailey? has take two wickets in the space of three balls now. Nothing but a fullish ball outside off stump, Bailey plays a half-hearted drive and hits it straight back to the bowler, who took it well in his followthrough. Bailey c and b 75(110) [4s-6 6s-1]

W

Ali to Stoinis, out Caught by Adil Rashid!! Oh no, Marcus Stoinis! This is his first ODI and he attempts a fancy looking reverse sweep to gift his wicket away. This is a great comeback by England. Surely, it is very tough for Australia to get to 290-300 now. Flighted delivery from Ali, Stoinis mistimes the reverse-sweep straight to short third man. Australia have lost their last 3 wickets for 5 runs. Stoinis c Adil Rashid b Ali 4(5)

4

Wood to Hastings, FOUR, finally Hastings opens his account and he plays a lovely shot to do so. Shortish and outside off stump, enough width on offer for Hastings to free his arms, Hastings doesn't go hard at it, just places the cut past the diving backward point fielder and beats third man as well

4

to Hastings, FOUR, tries the bumper but it doesn't rise much and sits up nicely, Hastings waits on the back foot and nails the pull shot to perfection for a one-bounce four over mid-wicket

4

to Hastings, FOUR, this lad can bat, John Hastings! Friendly full toss on the stumps, Hastings clears his front leg out of the way and slogs it over mid-wicket, that was a freebie and Hastings didn't miss out

6

Wood to Hastings, SIX, what a hit! Gee! Hastings was sedate for his first 7 balls, but now he's taking the attack to the bowlers to keep the crowd silent. Full and outside off stump, Hastings smashes it hard over the bowler's head for a maximum

6

to Hastings, SIX, this is a handy innings from Hastings. misses the yorker by a yard or so and that was good enough for Hastings to get under it, he lofts this easily over long-on

4

Wood to Wade, FOUR, that's a lucky boundary for Wade and Australia, all Wood can do is just smile back at the batsman. He knows that he didn't do much wrong there. Short of a length delivery just outside off stump, Wade walks across the stumps and tries to scoop it over fine leg, gets an outside edge that flies over short third man

6

Wood to Wade, SIX, just 77mph on this one as Wood takes pace off the ball, Wade picked it early, waited for it to come and slogs it hard over wide long-on, it went a long way up in the air, but more importantly cleared the rope

4

to Wade, FOUR, cheeky and effective. tries the yorker, but bowls a low full toss, Wade moves off-side and helps it fine, sends it to the left of short fine leg, who had no chance

4

to Wade, FOUR, in the air and in the gap. Slower delivery on the leg stump, Wade waits for the ball to come and slogs over square leg, deep mid-wicket runs to his left, but can't get there in time

6

Wood to Wade, SIX, gee! He's scooped that back over the keeper's head for a maximum. High full toss, Wade moves early into the off-side and finds the middle of the bat as well, the ball hits the sightscreen beyond the boundary

6

Wood to Wade, SIX, Wood goes round the wicket but it doesn't matter to Wade, who smacks it over deep square leg in style. Full and angling in, Wade swings it across the line, the connection is very good and it goes into the stands

OT

Wood to Wade, 1 run, full and on the stumps, Wade drives it to long-on and that brings up his 7th ODI fifty, another good knock for Wade in the series
