Commentary (England innings)

Yet another humiliating defeat for Australia. They have problems galore, with inexperience high in the ranks, add to that, injuries to premier players. Can they pick themselves up before the final ODI at Manchester on 10th July? No such worries for England. They now look a force to reckon with in the limited version of the game as well and seem to have come out of Kevin Pietersen's retirement. That's it from us! Thank you for your company and hope for the same for the 5th ODI. Good bye!

We get to know Steven Finn gets the Man-of-the-Match award for his 4-37.

Another series win for the home side, 9th consecutive win for England in ODIs and their 7th successive series win at home. First series defeat for Michael Clarke as captain. Australia scored 200 runs earlier and that definitely wasn't enough to defend against the formidable English batting line up. Bell and Trott batted well, both scored over 50. For Australia only Clint McKay was the stand out bowler as he picked up both those wickets of skipper Cook and Bell. Terrific all round display by England to win the series 3-0 comprehensively with the 5th ODI yet to be played.

DRINKS BREAK. Australia need that, probably to get some thought on what can be done now. Watson gone. Lee gone. That means two bowlers not finishing their bowling quota. And the biggest problem, the new ball bowlers have not struck at all. Still struggling to pick up a wicket. A 3-0 lead on the cards. 135 needed from 204 balls.

Hilfenhaus is the bowler who will bowl the remaining balls of the over.

A false start from Lee. He starts to run but then pulls up. Now Clarke walks over to him, pats him on his back. And Lee IS GOING OFF THE FIELD. The sporting crowd give a warn round of applause to Lee as he goes back. Troubles galore for Australia with the match already slipping out of their hands. XAVIER DOHERTY is the substitute.

Oh dear... and now Brett Lee has pulled up. He is stretching his calf muscle. Clarke looks on with a worry. Watson is already out and has not returned. Nothing going right for Australia at the moment and if Lee also goes off, then they would be heavily short on bowling resources. Okay, Hilfenhaus, McKay and Pattinson have convinced Lee to keep going.

15.2 B Lee to A Cook, Landed outside off, Cook lets it go. 65/0

15.1 B Lee to A Cook, Good length delivery outside off, punched straight to cover. 65/0

Brett Lee back on as well. 2-1-12-0 so far. 136 needed from 210 balls.

BOWLING POWERPLAY TAKEN.

14.4 J Pattinson to A Cook, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 60/0

In between overs, Clarke was having a chat with Bailey. With Watson off the field, Bailey should take over the vice-captaincy duties, one would assume. Also, the latter is Australia's T20I captain.

14.4 J Pattinson to A Cook, WIDE! Short and down the leg side, Cook goes for the pull but misses. 60/0

14.3 J Pattinson to Ian Bell, Oohhh... drives this loosely in the air and just about gets it in the gap through cover and mid off. Gets a single. 59/0

13.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, And again, Bell misses out. Slower delivery outside off, on a length, Bell waits and waits for the ball to come to him but still mistimes it to Hussey. The batsmen go for the single and Bell makes it even as Hussey scores a bull's eye at the bowler's end. 54/0

Yet another free hit for England and Bell!

13.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, NO BALL! Gosh, Hilfenhaus has overstepped by a massive margin. Inconsistency continues from Australia. Not a bad ball, on length outside off, watchfully defended. 53/0

Iain O'Brien, former Kiwi player, has an interesting thought. "This EngVsAus series is a bit like watching the WIvsNZ series - where Eng are WI and Aus are NZ. Who'd a thought that?" he tweets.

12.2 J Pattinson to A Cook, NOT OUT! A poor review from the captain but the bowler is to be blamed. PITCHED WELL OUTSIDE LEG, Cook comes forward to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Pattinson screams in an LBW shout but umpire Erasmus is unmoved. The bowler convinces his skipper to go for the review and the result is conveyed by the umpire. 48/0

Huge appeal for LBW, given not out, Clarke goes for the review...

12.1 J Pattinson to A Cook, Landed outside off, left alone. 48/0

Change of ends for Pattinson. 2-0-15-0 so far. 153 needed from 228 balls.

Commentary (Australia innings)

A bit of a comeback from Australia, a fighting innings by Clarke but the main person to get Australia to this score was David Hussey with his brilliant 70. This is some competitive score, the Aussies will try their best to defend this small total. England seamers bowled well in seaming conditions, Steven Finn got yet another 4-wicket haul. Bresnan and Anderson got two wickets each. Tells us this was some great bowling from England. Join us in a while for the chase.

49.6 Tim Bresnan to J Pattinson, Pattinson hits it towards mid-wicket and once again they run for two runs, good running. Australia end up with 200-9. 200/9

49.5 Tim Bresnan to J Pattinson, Lofts it over mid off this time and pick up two runs. 198/9

49.4 Tim Bresnan to J Pattinson, Lofts it over mid-wicket, picks up two runs. 196/9

Hilfenhaus walks in.

49.3 Tim Bresnan to D Hussey, OUT! Hussey tries to hit it down the ground, Anderson comes and takes a good catch at mid off. 194/9

49.2 Tim Bresnan to D Hussey, FOUR! Two boundaries in a row for Hussey. Hits it towards mid-wicket, the balls races to the boundary rope. Another good shot by Hussey. 194/8

49.1 Tim Bresnan to D Hussey, FOUR! Hussey flicks away through deep square leg, great flick. 190/8

48.1 S Finn to D Hussey, Outside off, Hussey plays it towards deep point and picks up two runs. 179/8

Yet another humiliating defeat for Australia. They have problems galore, with inexperience high in the ranks, add to that, injuries to premier players. Can they pick themselves up before the final ODI at Manchester on 10th July? No such worries for England. They now look a force to reckon with in the limited version of the game as well and seem to have come out of Kevin Pietersen's retirement. That's it from us! Thank you for your company and hope for the same for the 5th ODI. Good bye!

We get to know Steven Finn gets the Man-of-the-Match award for his 4-37.

Another series win for the home side, 9th consecutive win for England in ODIs and their 7th successive series win at home. First series defeat for Michael Clarke as captain. Australia scored 200 runs earlier and that definitely wasn't enough to defend against the formidable English batting line up. Bell and Trott batted well, both scored over 50. For Australia only Clint McKay was the stand out bowler as he picked up both those wickets of skipper Cook and Bell. Terrific all round display by England to win the series 3-0 comprehensively with the 5th ODI yet to be played.

Alistair Cook playing his 50th ODI.

We're all set for the game to begin. The players are out in the middle. Watson and Warner will open for Australia. James Anderson will bowl the first over and he's currently on 499 international wickets.

Few changes for Australia, Mitchell Johnson and Xavier Doherty left out and James Pattinson and Ben Hilfenhaus will play. For England, Graeme Swann is rested and Samit Patel comes in his place.

Toss - England won the toss and elected to field.

Weather - It had rained earlier but it's dry now and the forecast looks good. However it's slightly gloomy.

With series going 2-0 to England's favor and the 3rd ODI being washed out, Australia will try to salvage some pride to win the remaining two games at least. England have missed out the chance of being number one in ODIs as they wanted 5-0 to get that status. Australia will certainly fight back hard to draw the series by winning the last two games. Hopefully we'll get some good cricket today by both the teams.

Short ball outside off, nipping back in, Lee looks to cut but is cut into half instead. The ball races off the inside edge over the stumps to fine leg. So now you got what I meant. One batsman, cut into half, gets a boundary. 111/6

18.3 Tim Bresnan to S Watson, OUT! Chops it on! It's that man Bresnan again! Good length delivery just outside off, 80.9 mph, Watson looks to play his favourite shot, the run down to third man but is too close to the ball to play that shot. Only manages a thick inside edge onto the stumps. Watson just stands over there in tremendous frustration, yet another start not converted. He departs for 28 and the 51-run stand is broken.

Jonathan Trott walks in at number 3, replacing Cook. 131 needed from 201 balls.

16.3 C McKay to A Cook, OUT! Caught! And Australia finally get a wicket! McKay gets rid of Cook for the second time in as many games. Full outside off, Cook looks to drive on the rise but cannot keep it down. That was nowhere near a half volley and Cook paid the price. Substitute Steven Smith took it easily at short extra cover. Cook departs for 29, ENGLAND 70/1 IN 16.3 OVERS! 70/1

16.2 C McKay to A Cook, Good comeback from the bowler. Pitches it on length outside off, Cook feels for it but gets beaten. 70/0

16.1 C McKay to A Cook, FOUR! That's sweetly timed! Slightly short outside off, Cook just punches it through the covers. David Hussey runs across to his left from deep point but cannot get there as the ball beats his desperate dive! 70/0

James Anderson is back on. Baffling figures, 5-2-6-0. In fact, outstanding is the word.

16.6 Tim Bresnan to M Clarke, Ooohh... how did that miss the stumps? Good length delivery outside off, Clarke lets it go but the ball seams back in and just goes over the top! 52/2

16.5 Tim Bresnan to M Clarke, Landed outside off, not played at. 52/2

16.4 Tim Bresnan to M Clarke, FOUR! Handsome! Full outside off, 81.5 mph, Clarke comes forward and executes a lovely straight drive. Well not exactly straight but through mid off. The fielder in that position dives full length to his right but the ball beats him. 50 UP FOR AUSTRALIA! It has taken them 100 balls. 52/2

16.3 Tim Bresnan to S Watson, Good fielding from Morgan. Short and wide outside off, Watson slaps it towards point where Morgan dives full length to his right and manages to partially stop the ball. Just the single. 48/2

16.2 Tim Bresnan to S Watson, Landed outside off once more, watchfully defended. 47/2

Clint McKay now. 4-1-8-0 so far.

DRINKS BREAK. Australia need that, probably to get some thought on what can be done now. Watson gone. Lee gone. That means two bowlers not finishing their bowling quota. And the biggest problem, the new ball bowlers have not struck at all. Still struggling to pick up a wicket. A 3-0 lead on the cards. 135 needed from 204 balls.

15.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, Full on middle, flicked straight to the man at short mid-wicket once more. 66/0

15.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 66/0

15.4 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, Full on middle, played straight to short mid-wicket. 66/0

15.3 Ben Hilfenhaus to A Cook, Taps it with soft hands and strolls over for the single, pretty much like he and his partner have strolled over Australia in this series. 66/0

Hilfenhaus is the bowler who will bowl the remaining balls of the over.

A false start from Lee. He starts to run but then pulls up. Now Clarke walks over to him, pats him on his back. And Lee IS GOING OFF THE FIELD. The sporting crowd give a warn round of applause to Lee as he goes back. Troubles galore for Australia with the match already slipping out of their hands. XAVIER DOHERTY is the substitute.

Oh dear... and now Brett Lee has pulled up. He is stretching his calf muscle. Clarke looks on with a worry. Watson is already out and has not returned. Nothing going right for Australia at the moment and if Lee also goes off, then they would be heavily short on bowling resources. Okay, Hilfenhaus, McKay and Pattinson have convinced Lee to keep going.

15.2 B Lee to A Cook, Landed outside off, Cook lets it go. 65/0

15.1 B Lee to A Cook, Good length delivery outside off, punched straight to cover. 65/0

Tim Bresnan is back on. 2-0-7-0 so far.

Time for drinks then. An excellent first 75 minutes to England, but that would be an understatement. The ball has swung both ways and all the four batsmen who have come out to bat have been beaten time and time again.

15.6 S Broad to M Clarke, Oohh... was that deliberate? Looks to be. Full and wide outside off, Clarke reaches out for it and manages to run it down through the vacant slip cordon to third man. Finn makes a good sliding stop near the ropes. Two runs taken. 47/2

Hmmm... one of our scorers is not happy with Stuart Broad holding the ball cross seam. He asks, "Why is he holding the ball cross seam when it is swinging so beautifully with the normal seam?" Valid point.

15.5 S Broad to M Clarke, Full outside off again, Clarke initially thinks of putting bat to ball before taking the bat away. 45/2

15.4 S Broad to M Clarke, Outside off, left alone. 45/2

15.3 S Broad to S Watson, Landed outside off, steered past point to third man for a single. 45/2

15.2 S Broad to S Watson, FOUR! Handsome! There he goes again. Pitched full outside off, Watson leans and drives it straight back past the bowler. Such is the power on that shot that it beats mid off. 44/2

15.1 S Broad to S Watson, Landed outside off, Watson plays it straight to gully. 40/2

Brett Lee back on as well. 2-1-12-0 so far. 136 needed from 210 balls.

BOWLING POWERPLAY TAKEN.

14.6 J Pattinson to Ian Bell, FOUR! Majestic! Full outside off, Bell leans and drives it through the covers for a boundary! 65/0

14.5 J Pattinson to A Cook, Long hop, nicely pulled through square leg for a run. 61/0

14.4 J Pattinson to A Cook, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 60/0

In between overs, Clarke was having a chat with Bailey. With Watson off the field, Bailey should take over the vice-captaincy duties, one would assume. Also, the latter is Australia's T20I captain.

14.4 J Pattinson to A Cook, WIDE! Short and down the leg side, Cook goes for the pull but misses. 60/0

14.3 J Pattinson to Ian Bell, Oohhh... drives this loosely in the air and just about gets it in the gap through cover and mid off. Gets a single. 59/0

14.2 J Pattinson to Ian Bell, Full outside off, Bell drives it back to the bowler. Pattinson collects and mimes a shy at the striker's end. Needless. 58/0

14.1 J Pattinson to Ian Bell, Good length delivery outside off, shouldered arms to. 58/0

BOWLING POWERPLAY TAKEN.

My colleagues over here are surprised by Australia's dismal batting performance. They are doubtful of Australia crossing even 150. Hmm... I second them.

14.6 R Bopara to M Clarke, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 40/2

14.5 R Bopara to M Clarke, Ahhh....this one nips back in from outside off, Clarke looks to defend but misses and gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. 40/2

14.1 R Bopara to S Watson, Good length delivery outside off, watchfully defended. 39/2

13.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to A Cook, FOUR! And a bad ball to finish the over. Good length delivery on middle, Cook gets across and flicks it through mid-wicket and picks up a boundary. 10 from the over. 58/0

13.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, And again, Bell misses out. Slower delivery outside off, on a length, Bell waits and waits for the ball to come to him but still mistimes it to Hussey. The batsmen go for the single and Bell makes it even as Hussey scores a bull's eye at the bowler's end. 54/0

Yet another free hit for England and Bell!

13.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, NO BALL! Gosh, Hilfenhaus has overstepped by a massive margin. Inconsistency continues from Australia. Not a bad ball, on length outside off, watchfully defended. 53/0

Iain O'Brien, former Kiwi player, has an interesting thought. "This EngVsAus series is a bit like watching the WIvsNZ series - where Eng are WI and Aus are NZ. Who'd a thought that?" he tweets.

13.4 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, Short outside off, Bell mistimes his pull to short mid-wicket. 52/0

13.3 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, FOUR! Magnificent! Full outside off, Bell leans and drives it through the covers. The ball meets the fence. 52/0

13.1 Ben Hilfenhaus to Ian Bell, Good length delivery outside off, Bell dabs it towards third man but gully intervenes and stops it. 48/0

Ravi Bopara into the attack now.

13.6 S Broad to S Watson, Full outside off, Watson leans and drives this beautifully through the covers. Cook chases it all the way from mid off and slides near the ropes to pull it back in. Three runs taken. 14 runs from the over. 39/2

13.5 S Broad to S Watson, SIX! Optimum use of the free hit! Cross seam delivery again, banged in short outside off, Watson pounces on it as he looks to pull. Does not hit it cleanly but manages to clear the long on ropes. That shows his power. 36/2

Here comes the free hit ball!

13.5 S Broad to S Watson, NO BALL! Lovely delivery. Pitched in the fuller length zone, outside off, Watson comes forward and is slightly squared up as he looks to defend. The ball goes to cover. 30/2

13.4 S Broad to S Watson, Slash and a miss. Length delivery outside off, Watson goes hard for the cut but misses. Reckon that it was just a touch full to cut. 29/2

13.3 S Broad to S Watson, Full and straight, this time it is watchfully defended. 29/2

13.2 S Broad to S Watson, FOUR! Glorious! Something to clap for the Aussie supporters. Good use of his power. Fractionally full outside off from Broad, 79.6 mph, Watson comes forward and thumps it past mid off aerially to the fence. It has been a difficult morning to bat and that will give Watson some confidence. 29/2

13.1 S Broad to S Watson, Beaten! Full outside off, Watson comes forward to defend but gets beaten comprehensively once again. Cross seam delivery from Broad. Watson is all at sea. 25/2

It is not Clarke but Hilfenhaus who will bowl. 3-0-8-0 so far. 153 needed from 222 balls.

12.6 J Pattinson to A Cook, Full outside off, Cook plays a loose drive and misses. A MAIDEN! 48/0

12.5 J Pattinson to A Cook, Good length delivery outside off, Cook goes back and punches it straight to cover. 48/0

A limping Watson goes off the field. Meanwhile, Michael Clarke is warming up...

12.4 J Pattinson to A Cook, Full outside off, driven towards mid off. 48/0

12.3 J Pattinson to A Cook, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 48/0

12.2 J Pattinson to A Cook, NOT OUT! A poor review from the captain but the bowler is to be blamed. PITCHED WELL OUTSIDE LEG, Cook comes forward to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Pattinson screams in an LBW shout but umpire Erasmus is unmoved. The bowler convinces his skipper to go for the review and the result is conveyed by the umpire. 48/0

Huge appeal for LBW, given not out, Clarke goes for the review...

12.1 J Pattinson to A Cook, Landed outside off, left alone. 48/0

12.6 Tim Bresnan to M Clarke, Fuller and slightly wider outside off, shouldered arms to by Clarke. 25/2

11.3 S Watson to A Cook, FOUR! Nice shot but a real loosener from Watson. Looks to be limping a bit. Full and wide outside off, Cook reaches out and drives it through the covers. In the gap and into the fence. 47/0

11.2 S Watson to A Cook, And straightaway a play and a miss! Good length delivery outside off, Cook feels for it but gets beaten. Wade whips off the bails and appeals but is unsuccessful. 43/0

Stuart Broad into the attack now. 148 ODI wickets so far...

10.6 Tim Bresnan to M Clarke, DROPPED! Oh dear... it's that man Morgan again! Not a happy time in the field, eh? Full outside off, Clarke goes hard at that and drives it straight and uppishly to Morgan at point. The ball goes straight into the hands of the fielder and pops out. The batsmen take a single.
