Australia vs England, 1st T20I, England in Australia 2013-14

Commentary

Australia won by 13 runs | Australia Vs England Live Score, 1st T20I

The T20I series is off to a great start. The next one at Sydney on Friday promises to be a cracker as well. Join us back at 19:35 Local Time for all the action. Goodbye!
Cameron White is the Man of the Match for his 43-ball 75.
England would be kicking themselves for throwing away a good start. If only they had batted sensibly, they could have pulled this off. How crucial was that double-wicket over from Henriques when he removed Wright and Hales? The loss of Morgan very early dented the visitors back big time. A few of the batsmen got starts but couldn't convert it into a big one. Bresnan batted poorly by T20 standards. Bopara was the lone warrior for the visitors and boy, did he bat well! A strike-rate of over 240 scoring over 60 runs is not easy to do but lack of support at the other end meant England fell just short. Coulter-Nile was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets while the rest of the bowlers went for runs.
End of over 20, 24 runs (wd . 6 . 6 6 1 )
ENG: 200/9
Ravi Bopara - 65(27) This over: 19 runs
Danny Briggs - 0(0) This over: 0 runs
Josh Hazlewood
(4.0 - 0 - 46 - 0)
19.6 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 1
1 run, round the wicket now, full delivery on the off stump, Bopara whips it to deep mid-wicket and that's the game for Australia. They go 1-0 up in the 3-match series
200 runs for ENG
19.5 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 6
SIX, ho ho ho, some sublime hitting this. Full delivery on the stumps, Bopara slogs with one hand and sends this over the deep mid-wicket fence
19.4 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 6
SIX, length and Bopara swings across the line, connects well and sends it flat over the backward square leg fence
19.3 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 0
no run, fuller length delivery on the stumps, Bopara whips it deep mid-wicket but doesn't take the run. So near yet so far for England
19.2 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 6
SIX, full toss and he's put that away with ease to bring up his third T20I fifty. The ball sails over wide long-off
50 runs for Ravi Bopara
19.1 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 0
no run, fuller length delivery very wide as Bopara stand well outside off, but he could only dig it out. Legitimate deliveries from here should take Australia home
19.1 Josh Hazlewood to Ravi Bopara 5wd
5 wides, Bopara shuffles across the stumps and disturbs Hazlewood's line, the bowler fires it full and down the leg side. England wouldn't mind that. Wade couldn't grab that
Josh Hazlewood [3.0-0-22-0] is back into the attack
Danny Briggs, right handed bat, comes to the crease
End of over 19, 14 runs (1 4 1 4 4 W )
ENG: 176/9
Ravi Bopara - 46(21) This over: 9 runs
Jade Dernbach - 5(4) This over: 5 runs
Daniel Christian
(2.0 - 0 - 21 - 0)
18.6 Daniel Christian to Ravi Bopara W
out Dernbach Run Out!! In the quest to get Bopara on strike for the start of the next over, Dernbach goes for a very risky single and sacrifices his wicket. Full delivery down the leg side, Bopara flicks it to short fine, Finch fires a fine throw and Wade takes the bails off in a flash to beat Dernbach's dive. Dernbach run out (Finch/Wade) 5(4) [4s-1]
18.5 Daniel Christian to Ravi Bopara 4
FOUR, shortish on the stumps, Bopara pulls it powerfully to the deep mid-wicket fence. Can Bopara pull off a magical win?
18.4 Daniel Christian to Ravi Bopara 4
FOUR, full delivery outside off stump, Bopara crashes the drive through extra-cover and the ball rockets t the fence
