4

Wood to Warner, FOUR, superb cover-drive. Was a fraction too full and Warner got forward to drive that wide of cover. Just a half-step forward and then the bat flowed through the line. Gorgeous and that's a good way to get off the

4

to Warner, FOUR, can't err on the shorter side to Warner, he is in position to this waist-high short ball and pulls across the line. Through backward square and it races away, leaving long leg a spectator

4

Wood to Finch, leg byes, FOUR, down leg and it brushes the pad to run away past the fine leg fielder. Pacy delivery down leg and all it needed was just a tickle, which came via the pad

4

to Finch, FOUR, what a good shot that is. Was a back of a length delivery angling in, into the hips, Finch just swatted that - Flamingo pull behind square and it raced away. Superb timing

W

to Warner, out Caught by Hales!! Such a soft dismissal. Was fooled by the slower delivery, rolled his fingers on that, was the off-cutter, looked to have held up on Warner who went for an extravagant back foot drive, can't keep it down and cover-point takes a simple catch. That's a big wicket for Warner can be very dangerous and has a good record at the SCG. punches the air in delight. Warner c Hales b 8(10) [4s-2]

4

to Cameron White, FOUR, too straight. Quick wrists to pounce on it as he whips it through mid-wicket. And looks like the chasing slide isn't enough to stop the boundary. Hales' boot just about kicks the prisimic ropes as he pulls it back in

4

Wood to Cameron White, FOUR, and now a launch in. Gets under the length, has pace of 141ks to help and with a full bat swing, smokes it through the line. Well all cover can do is watch, and pick it up from the boundary

4

to Cameron White, FOUR, more through-the-lines. Airy this time. Juicy length, and shows the full bat face as he holds his shape in lofting the drive. Extra cover it is

W

Wood to Cameron White, out Caught by Buttler!! Gottim. Sheer pace, sheer bounce, sheer carry. White, as he has been over the last few overs, tries going uppish with an expansive drive. Too close, too high and all the flashy activity gets is a thin tickle on the outside edge to the keeper. And there's some very un-English celebrations in the huddle with Wood jumping and side-butting his team-mates. Cameron White c Buttler b Wood 17(25) [4s-3]

6

Ali to Finch, SIX, loosens. Quickly on a knee, with the spin and uses the pitch up for an agricultural slog into cow corner. An 86-meter bulldose

4

to Finch, FOUR, lifts it up. Chipping it in the cow corner gap, Woakes meanwhile does all the hard work of covering it up with his run across from long-on, slides and can't flick it back in time

4

to Finch, FOUR, gets greedy does , drags the length further down, quickening up his pace in his dart. Finch waits back, moves away freeing his arms to whack, and get it past point, which is all he had to do

6

to Finch, SIX, gets the front leg out, the arms were always going to tonk. And tonk they do. Way into the long-on stands. What's more - it's yet another fifty. These habits

6

to Finch, SIX, now on a slog. Keeps getting under the length, is helped by darts coming in too and can hack them across the line. Gives the security guard at cow corner some catching practice. And he comes out trumps

W

Rashid to Finch, out Lbw!! Rashid starts to appeal, charges towards the umpire, and this time gets the LBW in his favour. Finch not wasting any time - takes matters upstairs instantly. Oh is there some bat? Okay let's not waste time pondering..here's the technology - nothing on HotSpot as Finch sinks down to sweep and is beaten on the loopy drift. So the only thing that could save him here is the angle. Nope, that's not coming in either. The spin back in is just enough to ensure that it clips the outside half of leg. Umpire's call prevails. Finch lbw b Rashid 62(53) [4s-3 6s-3]

4

to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, pounds it through. All power. Gets a half tracker, and holds his shape as he moves away to punch it through the covers. Nothing a diving sweeper can do

4

to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, back to ruining the over. In the attempt to not let out full float-ups, darts it half way down the track and Marsh piles on. With a waiting pull, placing it behind deep square leg

4

Ali to Smith, FOUR, there he goes. His first boundary of the day and it's off his 63rd delivery. He's done with pushing and decides to get slogging, one-bounced into cow corner

W

Wood to Smith, out Caught by Buttler!! Oh Buttler. That century wasn't enough, was it? And now he's pulled off a stunner. Smith tries slicing it up, but the bounce refuses to get the ball up, takes a toe-end and Buttler, despite moving to his left with his trigger movement manages to dive low to his right. Now the million dollar question - where are his fingers? So England were celebrating. The soft signal too was out. Meanwhile the replays in such cases, as always are inconclusive. The crowds aren't forgiving..they've convinced themselves about it being a bump ball. And now the booing. Steve Smith too has taken his position. But the technology is just not enough to overturn. The third ump reckons there's something under the ball when it is pouched. And that something is enough to send Smith packing. A massive blow. Smith c Buttler b Wood 45(66) [4s-1]

4

Wood to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, through Bairstow's slumber at deep point. Nicely cut away by Mitchell Marsh but JB had covered the ground. Just lets it through. And the crowd makes sure that he remembers it for the night at least. "SUNDAY night," KP stresses on air

4

Rashid to Mitchell Marsh, FOUR, 11th fifty in ODIs for Mitchell Marsh. Lays into this full ball by Rashid; drills it wide of extra cover. Billings dives in the deep but he overshoots with the ball into the ad cushions

6

Rashid to Stoinis, SIX, he's come down the track and picked Rashid over long-on. To his credit, the leggie is still flighting it looking for the wicket but just bowling it too full right now. 85 meters

W

Rashid to Mitchell Marsh, out Caught by Hales!! Now, now, Mitchell Marsh has shredded it away. Gets a long hop after Rashid had bowled two good balls to Stoinis, rocks back and pulls. Just that he doesn't get it right. Perhaps the extra bounce, he ends up hitting it too straight to long-on. Hangs his head down and then walks off. He's distraught. Mitchell Marsh c Hales b Rashid 55(66) [4s-4]

4

Ali to Paine, FOUR, the idea was right from . Bowls it on the boots as Paine makes room down leg. Whipped through deep square leg. Brilliant use of the wrists

4

Wood to Stoinis, FOUR, that's a slower-ball plan gone wrong. Stoinis brilliantly waited an extra second there to play the shot. Flat-bats the short ball past mid-off there. Not even close to the fielder

4

Rashid to Stoinis, FOUR, well played. A leg break with good bounce, and Stoinis's pumped it over covers. On his toes, 100 percent in control . Good start

6

to Stoinis, SIX, withers it away with his mere bat swing. Little straight, picked up over deep backward square leg. He can really explode now. 68 meter only. That's a short boundary

4

Wood to Stoinis, FOUR, 3rd ODI fifty for Stoinis. Reaches out and slices this wide-full ball. And with third man up, he gets four. Wow, this game's as alive as ever. 24 off 9 needed. Umm

W

to Stoinis, out Caught by (sub)Billings!! England inch closer. lets out a short ball, Stoinis had to go for the pull but holes out to deep backward square leg. Stoinis c (sub)Billings b 56(43) [4s-3 6s-2]

4

to Roy, FOUR, that's a top shot. Rising delivery outside off, Roy hit it on the top of the bounce and timed the punch, wide of cover, the weight was coming forward and the timing was sweet

4

to Roy, FOUR, what timing on that from Roy. He is coming on the back off a 180 in the first game, just nudges it from his hips and leaves Mitchell Marsh's chase in vain. That kept racing away from the junior Marsh

4

to Roy, FOUR, beautiful shot. And clever from Roy, short fine is inside the ring, he walks across and then takes it from outside off, just a deflection and four more

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, my word. That's a shot and a half. It was overpitched outside off and Bairstow just belted that off the front foot. Left short cover and extra cover as spectators as the ball flew from the middle of the bat

4

Cummins to Roy, FOUR, any width and Roy will go. Short and wide outside off, Roy stays back and thrashes it wide of cover-point

W

Cummins to Roy, out Caught by Finch!! Good catch by Finch at short cover. Roy flops this time. The cross-seamer outside off, was on a driveable length, but Roy couldn't keep it down. Hit it well but in the air and found short cover who took it over his head. First breakthrough for Cummins and Australia. Roy c Finch b Cummins 19(24) [4s-4]

W

to Hales, out Caught by Zampa!! strikes in his first over. Wasn't there for the drive, short of a driving length, but still Hales goes through with the lofted shot, comes off the inside half of the bat and an easy catch for mid-on who tumbles forward to take it. roars in delight. Hales c Zampa b 1(8)

4

to Root, FOUR, a boundary after a while. Dragged down, Root picked that, rocked back and pulled that, beats Hazlewood at deep mid, who gave up the chase a bit too quickly

4

to Bairstow, FOUR, beautiful shot. That was the shot Bairstow looking for, clears his front leg and carves it over cover. Extended his arms and got the elevation needed to clear cover. In-to-out!

W

to Bairstow, out Bowled!! What a comeback. Brilliant from . Deceives Bairstow all ends up. Throws the googly up and it goes through Bairstow's defences. Bairstow is standing leg-side of the ball and doesn't account for the one that turns in, misses the inside edge on the drive and falls on the stumps. punches the air in delight. Bairstow b 39(57) [4s-2]

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, sliding into the pads, late movement in for , but got it wrong. Neat leg glance and it runs away

4

to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, that's what Eoin Morgan can do. Very unorthodox. Takes it from middle and then reverse-sweeps it hard, wide of backward point and it just scooted away

W

to Root, out Bowled!! comes back and gets Root. A drag on. On the front foot to a good length delivery outside off, then wants to cut that, but is cramped for room, in the end can only get an inside edge that falls on the off stump. Just a bail moves out of its groove but that's enough. Root b 27(31) [4s-1]

4

to Buttler, FOUR, this time he can't do anything. This is hit so well. Crisp off-drive and the ball pings off the middle of the bat, beats Marsh's dive at cover and races away. England needed that boundary as the dots were piling up

D

to Eoin Morgan, 1 run, dropped by Smith at mid-wicket. That should've been taken. Eoin Morgan pulled that straight to the Aussie skipper at mid-wicket and he shelled it. Could this prove to be costly? he is very disappointed with himself and curses

6

to Buttler, SIX, nails this. Length delivery and Buttler was waiting for it, launches the lofted hit and it lands bang on the cushion at the long-on fence. Six to break the shackles

6

to Eoin Morgan, SIX, that is an amazing hit. Eoin Morgan is down the track and is delivered a short of length delivery, but he clonks that massively into the deep mid stands. How did he manage to generate so much power and elevation from a moving base?

4

to Buttler, FOUR, beautiful batting. Buttler splits long leg and deep square to perfection. Dragged down and he walks forward and across, smashes the short ball into the gap. Hit it down too

W

to Eoin Morgan, out Caught by Paine!! That is such a soft dismissal. After getting dropped earlier on and looking dangerous, he now tries to run one down to third man and gets a tiny feather through to Paine. Was a nothing delivery, length ball angled across and he falls. Australia will welcome that wicket. Eoin Morgan c Paine b 41(50) [4s-2 6s-1]

D

Marsh to Moeen Ali, 1 run, dropped by White at extra cover. It was a steepler, make no mistake about it. Moeen wanted to go cross-batted, elicited a top-edge that flew high. White did well to ruffle under the ball there, but couldn't quite stabilize himself. Through his hands -- hitting the chest and just dropping out

W

Marsh to Moeen Ali, out Bowled!! Kevin Pietersen was just admiring Moeen in the last over, about latter's intent in the middle of a summer with diminishing returns. Well, he's shown too much of it far too often today. Goes for a hack across Marsh's angle from over the wicket to the left-hander. Misjudges the length to be something shorter and then clatters an inside edge onto the stumps. Gone. Moeen Ali b Marsh 6(12)

4

to Woakes, FOUR, nearly nails the yorker from round the wicket there. Few inches short. Woakes is falling over but gets good bat on this flick. Stoinis slides in the deep, trying to keep than in, but his hands touched the ad cushions there, so four

OT

to Buttler, 1 run, gets forward and pats a single through cover. 15th ODI fifty for Buttler! How well has he played..

4

to Woakes, FOUR, he's played this very full ball over cover. That's just unbelievable. Stays leg-side of the ball, picks it up and uses his hands to get just enough elevation

4

Cummins to Buttler, FOUR, he's made a mockery of Cummins's pace. Shuffles across - as an afterthrought gee! - and pumps the scoop over the keeper's head. Buttler was initially looking to make some room but then goes, hey why do this when I can do that better

4

Cummins to Woakes, FOUR, 143.6ks and Cummins sees it flying over his head. Just enough full to allow Woakes to get under it, and loft

OT

to Buttler, no run, direct-hit and Woakes was gone at the bowler's end. Buttler deflects it off the thigh into the off-side - beaten by some seam - and Smith is onto it like a rash at backward point. Buttler did intend to take the run yeah but pulls out, and by then, Woakes was halfway down the track. Smith misses..

6

to Buttler, SIX, woah, that's some way to celebrate a missed run-out opportunity. Rubs it in with a flat-batted smack over long-off. He looks so gorgeous

6

Cummins to Woakes, SIX, now a front foot pull. England unleashing at SCG now. Picks the length ever so well and swats that ball out for a six over deep mid-wicket! This fifth fifty by England is off just 38 balls - the quickest so far in the innings

D

to Buttler, 2 runs, dropped by Zampa at long-on. Runs in, gets there and then doesn't get hold of it. Nicely bowled by actually. Buttler was making room, so he follows him with a fuller ball at his feet. Cramped for room, Buttler had mishit that

4

to Buttler, FOUR, see he's waited long enough this time. 125ks short ball, Buttler waits on the pull and climbs on top. Stoinis can't be a hero this time in the deep. Slides but the ball beats him at deep mid-wicket

4

to Buttler, FOUR, that's a club in his hands. Can't be a bat. Makes room to a full ball from leg-stump and then goes wide of mid-off there. What stands out is ripping through 's angle from round the wicket! Needs some strength

OT

Cummins to Buttler, no run, Paine picked the wrong end there. Inside edge on the shuffling scoop there. Got the shot completely wrong there, did Buttler. Paine picks the ball up and throws it at Buttler's end. At Buttler in fact, with both the batsmen assembling at the same end. That's a missed chance

6

Cummins to Buttler, SIX, he's into his elements. Why shift your weight back when you have those hands and Cummins's pace. Swats it brutally over deep mid-wicket

6

Cummins to Buttler, SIX, into the nineties. Makes some room and miraculously he's made enough to swing through the line of that delivery. Embarrasses it over long-on

4

Cummins to Buttler, FOUR, now picks the slow short ball, too! Waits, staying leg-side of the ball, and fetches it from outside off for a mid-wicket tinker. Cross bat, deep in his crease and what not

4

Cummins to Woakes, FOUR, everything going in England's bank now. Well, not for the first time.. Top-edge on the slower short ball now flies over through fine leg

OT

to Buttler, 1 run, worked through mid-wicket. 100-RUN STAND, wow!

4

to Woakes, FOUR, drifts a little leg-stump and that's been flicked airily through mid-wicket. No chance for any fielder. Safely lifted and then found the gap in the deep

6

to Woakes, SIX, these top-edges are cricket's greatest aviation masters. Woakes gives it a real swat and it flies over deep backward square leg

OT

to Buttler, 2 runs, hes coming back for the second.. he is! Squeezes this incoming low full toss to long-on and hurries back for the second. Raises his bat and helmet to the crowd. What a way to get to your fifth ODI hundred
