All|Overs 1-50
W

to Burns, out Caught by Bairstow!! strikes early once again! Burns goes without troubling the scorers. He never looked comfortable and his scores in the series kept reducing with each game. It was a bad shot. Fraction short and wide outside off, Burns slashes half-heartedly and the outside edge is snaffled by Bairstow. Just the start England needed. Burns c Bairstow b 0(10)

4

to Smith, FOUR, that should give Smith some confidence. Pitched up outside off, Smith opens the bat face on the point of contact, square drives through cover-point, the timing takes it to the fence

4

to Finch, FOUR, short and wide, Finch pounces on it. There was enough width for Finch to free his arms, cracks the cut square of the wicket and picks up his first boundary

4

to Finch, FOUR, short and Finch once again capitalizes. Not much pace on that to trouble Finch, he shuffles across, goes on one leg and pulls it square on the leg-side. No chance for the fielder in the deep to cut that off

4

to Finch, FOUR, Finch goes down the ground. The slower delivery just outside off, Finch clears his front leg to open up the off-side, drills it to the right of mid-off, didn't bother running

W

Wood to Smith, out Caught by Bairstow!! The pressure was buidling and Smith tries an extravagant drive. Wood is delighted and so are the rest of his mates. Poor cricket from the Aussies. They just shut shop and Smith paid the price. Fuller and outside off, Smith looks to drive, the ball holds its line and finds the outside edge, Bairstow takes the simplest of catches. Smith c Bairstow b Wood 12(28) [4s-1]

4

Wood to Bailey, FOUR, Bailey is off the in style. Overpitched delivery outside off, he leans forward and creams the drive through the vacant cover region, no need to run for those

4

Wood to Bailey, FOUR, short again and this time Bailey spotted it early. Rocked on the back foot and creamed the pull through mid-wicket, got the timing right and the pace of Wood did the rest

4

Rashid to Finch, FOUR, the length is short and this time it's Finch who puts that away. Went deep inside the crease and cuts it to the right of the diving backward point, no protection in the deep

6

Rashid to Finch, SIX, and finally some momentum for Australia. Fullish and wide of off, Finch reaches out and smacks the loft high and over long-off, 10 from 2 balls off Rashid

4

Wood to Bailey, FOUR, not that short but Bailey pounced on that, plenty of width on offer though. Bailey camps back and slaps the cut square of the wicket, the timing was sublime on that occasion

4

Rashid to Bailey, FOUR, short and Bailey had enough time to pick his spot. Rashid tries the googly but loses control. Bailey jumps back and pulls it over mid-wicket, it wasn't far away from the fielder who was running in from deep mid-wicket

4

Rashid to Bailey, FOUR, dropped short again, Bailey says "thank you" as he rocks back and pulls it over mid-on, no need to run for those

4

Rashid to Bailey, FOUR, SHORT AGAIN, Bailey this time goes much straighter, times the pull to perfection and places it towards non-existent long-on

4

Wood to Finch, FOUR, full and in the slot for Finch, he mistimes (got it off the bottom half) the drive wide of mid-off, the power on the shot ensured that it raced away to the fence, beating Topley's valiant dive

4

Wood to Finch, FOUR, full and angling into the pads, Finch wristily flicks to the right of a diving mid-wicket, the timing was perfect on the shot and Finch gets the desired result. Fifty partnership comes up

4

Rashid to Finch, FOUR, this time he pierces the gap to perfection. Flatter and on the stumps, Finch goes down on one knee and sweeps it behind square on the leg-side, there is no fine leg in place

4

Ali to Finch, FOUR, down leg and neatly put away by Finch, goes down on one knee and sweeps it fine, the ball went more off the under edge and went to the right of the fielder at long leg

4

Ali to Finch, FOUR, full again and Finch reaches his milestone in style. Gets to his fifty with a sweep wide of deep backward square leg. He raises his bat to acknowledge the applause

4

to Finch, FOUR, this is full and straight, Finch likes it there, drives it straight down the ground like a top-class batsman and gets the desired result

4

Ali to Finch, FOUR, there you go! I'm tired of typing sweep, Finch though places this one to perfection to the left of long leg, the timing was perfect and even the fielder can't get there

4

to Bailey, leg byes, FOUR, poor ball from , once again drifts onto the pads, all Bailey had to do was get a tickle, even though he failed to lay his bat on it, the ball runs away to the fine leg fence off the thigh pad

OT

to Bailey, 1 run, 100 of the partnership comes up with this single! This was banged in short and well outside off, Bailey pulls it to deep square leg and he will keep the strike

4

to Bailey, FOUR, Australia win the series 3-2! Finally, they have something to cheer about. Bailey immediately runs towards Finch and hugs him in delight. Both batsmen raise their arms towards the dressing room as well. Coming back to the ball, it was bowled well wide outside off, Bailey went on the back foot as he looked to cut it hard, ended up getting it off the toe-end, the ball raced away to the right of the keeper and crashed into the fence

4

to Jason Roy, FOUR, swing for , but he swings it down the leg-side. Roy looks to flick, Wade dives to his left but the ball swings away further, given as runs, must have got a faint nick

OT

to Jason Roy, no run, lucky escape for Roy, this was pitched up and nipped back in sharply, Roy was caught in his crease as he prodded forward, the bat was very close to the pad, there were two sounds, replays suggested that it was bat first and the decision has been overturned

W

to Jason Roy, out Lbw!! A shocker from umpire Wilson, and Roy took his own sweet time before trudging off. Why didn't he opt to review this? Replays suggest that impact was outside leg and the ball was slipping further down the leg-side. It was another inswinging low full-toss from , Roy was looking to play the on-drive, missed and was struck low on the pads. The impact was outside leg-stump and it was missing the stumps. A poor call from the umpire, even more poor from the two batsmen as they kept on pondering about a review. They took too much time and ended up making the wrong call. Lucky wicket for . Jason Roy lbw b 4(4) [4s-1]

4

to James Taylor, FOUR, lovely shot, no swing for here, ends up offering a long half-volley, Taylor leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and caresses it past extra cover for a boundary

4

to Hales, FOUR, inside edge and four, on a good length and holding its line outside off, Hales went for the expansive drive, gets a thick inside edge past the leg-stump and into the boundary

W

to Hales, out Caught by Maxwell!! Hales finishes a miserable series with the bat, a wicket after a long long time for . And he was lucky, Maxwell nearly made a meal of a sitter, grabbed it on rebound though. This was pitched up wider outside off, Hales went hard on the drive, ends up slicing it towards backward point. Maxwell fumbled as he went reverse cup, the ball dropped down towards his knees, he was alert to the situation, bends down and pouches it safely on the second attempt. The crowd goes silent. Hales c Maxwell b 4(12) [4s-1]

4

to James Taylor, FOUR, lovely shot, overpitched and well outside off, Taylor leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and caresses it through extra cover, the timing is sweet and the ball races away to the fence in a hurry

W

to James Taylor, out Caught by Wade!! Edged and caught! England are in doldrums now. One of the in-form batsman departs, a nothing shot from Taylor, this was pitched up and in that corridor outside off, might have straightened a fraction as well, he limply hung his bat at that, the outside edge is found and it's safely grabbed by Wade. Second wicket for and England are in deep trouble now. James Taylor c Wade b 12(18) [4s-2]

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, too straight from , ends up drifting onto Bairstow's pads, he tickles it very fine and beats the diving long leg fielder for a welcome boundary

4

to Stokes, FOUR, welcome runs for Stokes, misses his yorker, offers a full delivery outside off, crunched wide of mid-off for a boundary

4

to Stokes, FOUR, lovely shot, overpitched and on the stumps, Stokes presents the full face of the bat and caresses it back past the non-striker, no need to run for those

4

to Stokes, FOUR, Stokes is looking in imperious touch today! Fraction too full and outside off, Stokes leans forward, presents the full face of the bat and punches it past the bowler. Bisects mid-on and mid-off to precision, the ball races away to the fence in a hurry

4

Cummins to Stokes, FOUR, cracking shot, banged in short and just outside off, Stokes rocks back and ulls it in front of square on the on-side, the timing is sweet and the ball races away to the fence

W

Marsh to Bairstow, out Lbw!! England lose another just as a partnership was starting to develop. This was very full and straight from Marsh, Bairstow was shuffling across on the flick and missed. The impact was in front of middle and leg, the ball was crashing into a good chunk of the leg-stump. Umpire Bailey's original call was NOT OUT and it has been reversed. First wicket for Marsh and England slump further. Bairstow lbw b Marsh 10(15) [4s-1]

4

Marsh to Moeen Ali, FOUR, lovely shot, what a way to get going, this was pitched up and well outside off, Moeen leans forward, presents the full face of the bat, drives it on the up and fluently through cover for a boundary

4

Cummins to Stokes, FOUR, fuller length delivery and shaing away from outside off, draws Stokes forward on the drive, the edge is found and it races away ast the lone sli. It went quickly to the ground, wouldn't have carried even if a second sli was in lace

4

Cummins to Stokes, FOUR, too short from Cummins, Stokes rocks back and ulls it in front of square on the on-side, the man in the dee is very square, another boundary for Stokes

W

Marsh to Moeen Ali, out Caught by Wade!! Edged and caught! This was pitched up and a hint of nip away from off, draws Moeen into the flamboyant off-drive, he's late on the shot and gets a thick edge, straight to the keeper. Wade throws the ball in the air and Australia celebrate. England have lost half their side and captain Morgan's retired hurt. Moeen Ali c Wade b Marsh 5(5) [4s-1]

W

Marsh to Willey, out Lbw!! Second wicket of the over and England continue to slump further. This was pitched up and held its line around leg, Willey was looking to work it towards the on-side and missed. The impact was in front of leg-stump and was hitting the stumps. Good call from umpire Bailey and he's vindicated by technology. Willey lbw b Marsh 0(2)

4

Cummins to Adil Rashid, FOUR, on a good length and on the off-stum line, Rashid makes room slightly and eases it square on the off-side, beats the man at cover-oint and races away to the fence

6

Marsh to Stokes, SIX, massive, Stokes dances down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and hoists it high and into the crowd over long-on, Stokes is looking in superb touch today

W

Marsh to Stokes, out Lbw!! Stokes falls and England are tottering now. This was a length delivery that held its line around middle, Stokes played all around it, missed and it's a simple call for umpire Bailey. Stokes can't review either - not that it would have helped his cause one bit, that was as plumb as it gets. England are seven down and in real turmoil. Stokes lbw b Marsh 42(51) [4s-6 6s-1]

4

to Adil Rashid, FOUR, nicely played by Rashid, leg stump half-volley from , flicked away through mid-wicket for a boundary. Handy runs for England

4

to Mark Wood, FOUR, edged and four, fuller length delivery and just outside off, Wood pushed forward, gets a thick edge past the second slip, no third slip in place and the ball races away to the fence in a hurry

4

Marsh to Mark Wood, FOUR, Wood is teasing the Australian fielders here, back of a length and on the stumps, Wood plays the half-arm flick, it goes in the air and just about clears the leaping Burns at mid-wicket, loud cheers from the crowd as England go past 100

W

to Mark Wood, out Caught by Ashton Agar!! The golden arm of strikes! Another feeble dismissal for an England batsman. This was pitched up and held its line outside off, Wood was looking to go over extra cover, ends up slicing it over cover. Agar moves across to his right in the deep and completes the catch, reverse cup style. England have lost their 8th wicket. Mark Wood c Ashton Agar b 13(13) [4s-2]

4

to Adil Rashid, FOUR, lovely shot, excellent use of the wrists from Rashid, this was pitched up and on the stumps, Rashid flicks it wide of mid-on for a boundary. continues to bleed runs

4

Agar to Adil Rashid, FOUR, down on one and the sweep is executed well by Rashid. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Rashid sends it along the ground through square leg for a boundary

4

Agar to Adil Rashid, FOUR, this time Rashid goes aerial, long-on is inside the ring and that's a calculated hit. Tossed up and on the stumps, Rashid waits for the ball to come and lofts the drive over mid-on

W

Agar to Topley, out Lbw!! The frustrating stand has been broken. Morgan is not going to bat and England have been bowled out. It was the arm-ball from Agar, Topley goes back in the crease to defend, the ball skids on and strikes him right in front of middle stump. Umpire Joel Wilson had no problems in raising his finger. Mitch Marsh leads the Australians out of the field. Topley lbw b Agar 6(27)
