W

to Roy, out Caught by Finch!! Half-volley on the pads, Roy clips it straight to Finch at short mid-wicket, who lunges forward to take a good low catch. Roy, the dangerous Roy, who looked unstoppable in the last game, has been been dismissed to . Roy c Finch b 2(4)

4

Richardson to Bairstow, FOUR, 139kmph half-volley fraction wide outside off, Bairstow check-drives it through the extra cover region for four. Extremely well-timed

4

to Hales, FOUR, 144kmph, short delivery outside off, Hales drags that with a pull to deep mid-wicket, shifting his weight onto his back foot and laying into that shot. Not quite off the meat, but good enough

4

to Hales, FOUR, 148.5kmph, full toss with a bit of width, Hales stands his ground and throws his hands at it, slicing it square of the wicket for four

4

to Hales, FOUR, short, wide, Hales' eyes light up and he carves it away through the gap at deep backward point for four

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, back of a length but too wide outside off, Bairstow stays in the crease and creams it square of the wicket past cover point for four

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, 147.5kmph good length delivery fraction wide outside off, Bairstow trusts the bounce and lays into it, drives it with excellent timing to the deep extra cover fence for four

4

Richardson to Hales, FOUR, half-volley length just a fraction wide outside off, Hales leans into the drive to the sweeper cover fence for four

4

to Hales, FOUR, rank long hop angling away outside off and creating width, skapped away to the sweeper cover fence for four

4

to Hales, FOUR, flatter delivery on the pads, Hales plants his foot forward and sweeps hard, gets it away to the backward square leg fence for four

4

Tye to Hales, FOUR, good length delivery, not a half-volley by any means, and Hales steps forward to run his hands through the ball to whip-drive it to the long-off fence for four. Excellent shot

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, full delivery down leg, asking to be spanked, Bairstow goes for the sweep and gets some bat on it and away she goes to the fine leg fence for four

4

Tye to Bairstow, FOUR, short and a fraction wide outside off, Bairstow flashes it hard outside off and it flies over a leaping Smith to deep backward point fence for four

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, tossed up on a good length outside off, Bairstow plants his foot forward and sweeps it hard to the deep square leg fence for four

4

Tye to Bairstow, FOUR, fraction short and a little bit of width outside off, Bairstow waits and runs his handed through that cut to deep backward point for four. Nailed the timing and the placement

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, back of a length but sits up for the batsman who uses the depth of the crease to clout the pull to deep mid-wicket for four

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, 6th ODI fifty for Bairstow! Full delivery on middle, Bairstow has that Gooch-like back-lift and lofts that slower ball (124kmph) towards the straight boundary for a one-bounce four. An exemplary innings

OT

to Hales, wide, drifting down leg and the umpire stretches his arm. The partnership between Hales and Bairstow is now 100!

6

to Hales, SIX, tossed up on middle and leg, Hales clears his leg and lofts it over the long-on boundary for six! That's the 11th ODI fifty for Hales! Excellent innings!

W

Richardson to Hales, out Bowled!! Lazy from Hales and Richardson has his first ODI wicket. Back of a length delivery angled in, Hales wanted to guide it to third man, didn't move his feet much, the ball probably nipped back into him and gave him no space, ended up chopping it back onto the leg stick. So the bowling change has worked for Australia. End of Hales's 117-run association with Bairstow. Hales b Richardson 57(60) [4s-7 6s-1]

4

Richardson to Root, FOUR, nicely punched off the back foot and the ball teases Head all the way to the rope. Short of a length delivery outside off stump, Root goes back and plays with an angled bat to find the gap at point

W

Richardson to Bairstow, out Caught by Warner!! Now then, now then. Richardson has got both set batsmen. First Hales and now Bairstow. 141kph full ball from Richardson, Bairstow goes for the drive, doesn't control it and hits it in the air, picks out Warner to perfection at short extra cover. It's been good for Australia post drinks. England need to rebuild. Bairstow c Warner b Richardson 60(56) [4s-9]

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, in the airrrrr and just wide of backward point. Shortish and spinning away outside off stump, Morgan goes hard on the cut shot, gets a thick edge that just manages to avoid the diving fielder to his right

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, it's way too short and Morgan is quickly on the back foot to pull wide of mid-on. cannot afford to release the pressure with loose balls

6

Richardson to Eoin Morgan, SIX, gee, that's some timing from Morgan. Effortless. Short of a length delivery on the leg stump, Morgan just picks it up off his hips and clears the backward square leg fence. Never tried to hit that hard

W

to Eoin Morgan, out Bowled!! He's chopped that onto the stumps. 141kph from , bit of reverse swing back into the left-hander as well. Morgan was just trying to defend, the incoming angle left him with no space to execute the shot and he finds his sticks shattered. The ball took the edge, hit the back leg and hit the stumps. Australia need quick wickets to seal this. England have the batting to pull this off. Eoin Morgan b 21(27) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

Tye to Buttler, FOUR, short and on the stumps, Buttler swivels and pulls, the timing was alright and it sped across the turf through backward square leg

4

to Buttler, FOUR, here it is. introduced into the attack and Buttler swings him over mid-on. Gentle medium pace ball on a good length, meat and cheese for Buttler

4

to Buttler, FOUR, flies away off the top-edge straight over the keeper's head. Gun-barrel straight. He didn't hold back in trying to pull this away, and the bounce here at the Gabba helps his cause. Just the one bounce over the ropes

4

Richardson to Buttler, FOUR, he's deceived by this slower one too, not quite as much though, and is able to heave it wide of long-on

4

to Buttler, FOUR, Buttler shovels this ball through mid-wicket. bowled it fuller as he drifted it across off. But it was still within Buttler's arc. Too easy

W

to Buttler, out Caught by Carey!! Outside edge and gone. He troubled Buttler with late swing in his previous over too, and finishes him off here. Very tough to play this. Slanted in from round the wicket, the line is off-stump which draws Buttler into the push. The ball curves away late and finds the nick. Can he produce some magic in this final over of his? Buttler c Carey b 42(32) [4s-5]

W

to Moeen Ali, out Bowled!! Oh bowled him. roars. He's keeping Australia in this contest and has two deliveries left to inflict some more damage. What a ripper of a yorker this is. Tailing in late at pace, and ripping through Ali before his bat comes down. Moeen Ali b 1(2)

4

Richardson to Woakes, FOUR, what timing from Woakes on this drive. He's nailed this through extra-cover. No great feet but great hands as he drills the full-pitched delivery to the boundary

6

Richardson to Woakes, SIX, oh take that! It has been bludgeoned over wide long-on. What pressure? Short of length from Richardson, Woakes whacks this pull off the front foot

4

Richardson to Woakes, FOUR, pulled away behind square, sneaks right through Stoinis as he slides across it. He blows his cheeks in frustration. England require less than 20

4

to Woakes, FOUR, another pull shot, this one's very much in control with Woakes getting right on top of the bounce. He swivels it backward of square and sends it to the boundary

4

to Woakes, FOUR, oh lovely. Just a steer over backward point for four. Got under this short of length delivery so nicely. How well has he played

4

to Woakes, FOUR, the field comes up, allowing Woakes to loft this into the long-on boundary. England with another comfortable run-chase to go 2-0 up

4

Wood to Warner, FOUR, short delivery aimed at the face and Warner swivels into a pull to deep square leg for four. Difficult shot to execute on a bouncy Gabba wicket!

4

to Finch, FOUR, just as one thought it was turning to be a great over, bowls a poor short ball. Definitely not intended, wanted to bowl an outswinger outside off stump, the line was pretty decent, but the length was way too short and Finch muscles the pull through mid-wicket

4

Wood to Finch, FOUR, oh he's smashed that! Wood wanted to test the middle of the pitch, didn't rise as much to trouble the batsman, Finch is solid on the back foot and ready for the pull, hit the sweet spot of the bat according HotSpot, there was a man at mid-wicket, but it was hit so hard that he hardly had time to react, stuck his right hand out, but the ball already passed him by then

4

Wood to Warner, FOUR, punched away square with an open face, Wood offered just a bit of width on this fuller ball and Warner hit the gap at cover-point, the fielder gives chase and tries to flick it back but made contact with the rope

4

to Warner, FOUR, this pitch is a batting beauty, so anything in your zone and you can go hard at them. Full and in the slot, Warner drives hard, smashes that between Finch and the umpire, mid-off had no chance

4

Wood to Warner, FOUR, pace cannot do everything for you. This was just above 140kph, but with no movement in the air and off the pitch, Warner happily bludgeons it straight past the non-striker

4

Wood to Warner, FOUR, this guy is turning it on. Short and on the stumps, Warner rocks back and pulls, doesn't bother to keep it down and clears mid-wicket. Davey Warner looking ominous here

4

to Finch, FOUR, short delivery but it doesn't rise steeply, sits up nicely for Finch to stay back and swivel-pull through mid-wicket

4

to Finch, FOUR, the cross-seamer from and it goes down the leg-side, Finch glances it to the fine leg boundary

4

to Finch, FOUR, in the airrrrr and just over the jumping Chris Woakes at mid-on. Full and outside off stump, Finch wanted to loft the on-drive, the ball hit the bottom of the bat and luckily he made good enough contact to clear the fielder. In fact, just before bowling the ball, gestured to Woakes to be on the circle and the plan almost worked

W

Ali to Warner, out Caught by Root!! That is an outside edge and Root takes it to his right at slip. The angle does it for Mo. Flighted delivery from round the wicket, Warner was pushing at the ball looking to run it to third man, but the ball spins and takes the edge. Warner puts his head down and walks. England badly needed that wicket, for these two were threatening to make it big. Warner c Root b Ali 35(40) [4s-5]

6

Rashid to Finch, SIX, that is right in the slot and Finch goes bigggg! That's gone way back into the stands. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Finch waits and launches himself into the loft, sends it over long-on. That was a 105m hit from Finch

6

Rashid to Smith, SIX, he's come out positive, Steven Smith. Rashid tossed this up on the stumps, Smith stepped down the pitch, got closer to the pitch of the ball and lofted that straight over long-on

OT

to Smith, no run, England are reviewing for caught behind. Seems like it hasn't hit the bat at all, as Smith tried to glance that back of a length delivery on off-stump. No spike on ultra-edge and declared not out

OT

to Finch, 1 run, another delivery just a fraction short into the gut and Finch pulls it away to backward square leg for a single. That's a fifty for Finch

W

to Smith, out Lbw!! A review by Smith! seems to have pinned Smith LBW! Oh my goodness. Good length ball just outside off, a hint of turn, Smith misses a glance that one time out of a million and he gets rapped on the pad. The impact is in line and the ball is just clipping the top of leg-stump! Umpire's call, and Joe exults after the on-field decision is retained. Smith lbw b 18(25) [6s-1]

4

to Finch, FOUR, flat tracjectory just outside off, a tad shorter than would like, Finch plays an extremely late cut to third man for four

W

to Head, out Caught&Bowled!! Mother of all soft dismissals! Full-ish delivery on middle turning slightly, and Head shimmies down the track to clipped it away towards mid-on. He misreads the length again and ends up chipping it straight back to who swallows it up. The man with the golden arm strikes again! Head c and b 7(18)

D

Ali to Finch, no run, straight one outside off, Finch tries to clip and gets an edge through to Buttler who drops it! These either stick or they don't

4

Ali to Finch, FOUR, flighted on off but a touch short, Finch gets low in his stance, makes room, and carves it away to the deep backward point fence for four

4

to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, rank long hop with a touch of width, Mitchell Marsh gets back in the crease, gets low in his stance and carves it to the deep backward point, fence for four

4

Wood to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, just a fraction short and skidding into the ribcage, Mitchell Marsh gets into position and nails that pull to the backward square leg fence and it races away for four. That boundary spoils a rather good over from Wood

4

to Finch, FOUR, a tad short without much width, Finch makes room, stays low, and slaps it to sweeper cover for four

4

Rashid to Finch, FOUR, he's smashed this sweep through square leg. Got down quickly, found the length he was after and walloped it along the turf

OT

Rashid to Finch, 2 runs, they'll push, they'll push, and they'll make it. Back to back hundreds for Aaron Finch. Takes his helmet off, kisses the badge, and raises his bat bat to his teammates and the crowd. The celebration is nothing over the top. His effort in the last match, where he didn't make it a big hundred, went in vain. He'd want to kick on this time

4

to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, slightly hurried by this short of length delivery, but Marsh is able to muscle it away over mid-wicket. Not as much timing as it was power

W

Rashid to Mitchell Marsh, out Stumped!! He's a long way gone. Beautifully done by Rashid, sensing Marsh's approach down the pitch and tossing it out wide to spin the ball past the outside edge. This is what he brings to this England ODI team. Wickets. And what a huge wicket this is at this stage of the game. Mitchell Marsh st Buttler b Rashid 36(43) [4s-3]

W

to Finch, out Caught by Roy!! Now Finch goes. Australia in danger of losing their way here, if they've not done so already. The idea from him is not bad, given that mid-on is up in the ring. The ball is pitched up too, so the shot is on. But the bat twists in Finch's hand and he drags it straight to Roy. Tremendous phase of play for the visitors. Finch c Roy b 106(114) [4s-9 6s-1]

W

Rashid to Stoinis, out Caught by Buttler!! He's got him. Faint little edge from Stoinis. What a spell this is from Rashid. England held him back for the death and it's paying off big time. Lovely flight on the leg-break, gets the ball to dip and gets Stoinis to stretch forward to meet it. Then there's some grip off the track too which finds the outside edge. Australia in danger of finishing well below par. Stoinis c Buttler b Rashid 4(6)

4

Rashid to Carey, FOUR, nails the sweep through square leg. Again, this is the best shot you can play if you're not picking the spinner. Carey hits it really well here

4

Rashid to Carey, FOUR, now the paddle sweep, and this is running away too. Four more. Carey with some momentum

4

Rashid to Carey, FOUR, he's getting the better of Rashid with the sweep. This ball is tossed up outside off, but Carey is still able to fetch it wide of long-on. Once bounce and over the boundary

4

Rashid to Carey, FOUR, what a lovely shot. He's creamed the googly over extra-cover with stunning timing. Rashid will be disappointed to have overpitched this one outside off, which Carey made him pay for. So a couple of expensive overs for Rashid to finish with, and it's all due to Carey

W

to Cameron White, out Carey Run Out!! Handy football skills from to run Carey out. Again, England managing to dismiss the batsman who's got himself in, and it could make quite a bit of difference with 14 balls left. Slower short ball from , White struggles for timing once more as he under-edges it back down the pitch. Carey is desperate for strike, and he even makes a desperate dive. But side-foots with precision. Carey run out () 27(24) [4s-4]

D

Wood to Starc, 1 run, Root hasn't picked this up at all in the deep. He's pedalling back towards the boundary for what looks to be a regulation chance, but loses sight of the ball very late and actually does well here to stick his left hand out and shove it in front of him

W

to Starc, out Caught by Roy!! Another chance at deep mid-wicket. This time it's Roy, this time it's in the shade, and this time it's been taken. Miscued from Starc as he tries heaving this away. Roy pedals back and holds on comfortably with the reverse-cup. Starc c Roy b 3(6)

6

to Andrew Tye, SIX, he's got stuck into this full toss, powers it over the wide long-on boundary

W

to Andrew Tye, out Andrew Tye Run Out!! Under-edged pull into the body, rolls away down the pitch. They had to go for the single, being the final ball. Not on 's watch though. He picks it up, turns around, and fires the stumps at the non-striker's end. Andrew Tye run out () 8(4) [6s-1]
