KFC Twenty20 International :: Live
Brilliant batting from Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting, Andrew Symonds and Cameron White gave Australia a Twenty20 international record total of 221-5 at the SCG.
11:42 There are three balls left as Anderson comes to the middle. At least you've not wasted your entire day following England. Nixon flick-drives Harwood over long-off for a one-bounce four. Anderson gets a single off the final ball and that's your lot. England still yet to win a game on this tour, which has now lasted two months. Highlights on BBC2 tonight if you don't have broadband.
11:35 Sorry for the techical problems we have sufferd in the last 30 minutes.
11:05 The man with the best initials in world cricket, left-arm wrist-spinner George Bradley Hogg, joins the attack and there are some ones and twos available on the leg side. Nixon tries his trademark reverse sweep without success. 76-5
11:02 Paul Nixon has been waiting 36 years to get off the mark first ball, flicking on the leg side. he has played more Twenty20 matches than anyone else in the world, with 35 appearances for Leicestershire in the domestic competition, including two winning finals. 70-5
11:01 - Wicket Collingwood looks to break the stranglehold with a swipe but it goes too high to clear the midwicket boundary, where White is waiting to help Hilfenhaus take his first international wicket.
10:56 Twenty20 was supposed to get rid of the dull overs in the middle, but Symonds is a master of the dull one-day over, bustling through with his off-spin to yield five singles and a two. 67-4
10:52 Hilfenhaus continues to get some good shape on the ball here and the batsmen just can't get him away. His bouncer is too high, though, and is given as a wide. Collingwood is squared up and then beaten by successive balls. 60-4
10:51 Symonds gets some turn when he wants it. Few batsman Collingwood gets off the mark and the two batsmen swap singles. 57-4
10:47 Vaughan attempts a reverse sweep at a straight one from Symonds and a promising innings is brought to a low-key end as umpire Parker confirms the lbw. Shades of Mike Gatting in 1987, although that shot's a little more popular these days.
10:44 Tasmanian 23-year-old Ben Hilfenhaus gets his first taste of international cricket, starting with an outswinging yorker. Vaughan chips his second ball for a couple straight back over his head. Australia celebrate as Vaughan lofts a drive high to cover but umprie Peter Parker's arm is outstretched for a no ball. Bell inside-edges the free hit for four but they're given as byes. 53-3
10:40 That was clearly an intentional outside edge by Ian Bell for four to get off the mark. A canny piece of batting. Bracken mixes in some decent slower balls but Vaughan gets to a wider one to chop it to the boundary. 41-3
10:37 - Wicket Pietersen steers to third man and calls for a silly second run as Harwood's throw comes in and takes the stumps off with the batsman a yard short.
10:35 Pietersen takes successive boundaries off the double-chinned Harwood, with a hook and a bullying lofted drive. The bowler comes up with a decent slower ball but the resultant leading edge falls safely. vaughan's knee manages to get him around quickly to capitalise on a Hussey fumble at mid-on, then he turns one around the corner for four. 31-2
10:31 Pietersen gets off the mark with a forced single on the off side. Vaughan is getting the chance to test his troublesome knee with some running between the wickets. He doesn't look too bad so far. That drive between point and cover brings back some long-lost memories too. The out-of-form England captain, who has never been any good in one-day cricket, is looking pretty darned good at the moment. 16-2
10:28 Remember the swivel pull that brought Vaughan three centuries during the last Ashes series? We haven't seen it for a while but that was the first boundary of the innings. 10-2
10:24 - Wicket Englands' disastrous Ashes tour looks to continue, Flintoff falls for a duck. The bowler is Shane Harwood, a burly 31-year-old debutant who is a bit of a Twenty20 specialist. Flintoff top-edges a pull straight to just in front of square, where White takes a simple catch.
10:21 - Wicket Joyce looks to go over the top but gets a leading edge high to mid-on, where Mike Hussey takes a running catch. Just diving into the record books to find the biggest margin of defeat.
10:20 Joyce gets off the mark first ball, steering a single to third man, where new boy Ben Hilfenhaus fields. Vaughan scores his first international runs for 13 months with a flick off the hip.
10:04 England have brought Anderson back for the final over. His three so far have cost 47. He starts with a good yorker but his second is on leg stump and White hoicks him into the 10th row of the stand for a record 13th six in the innings. DROP! Pietersen's electric hands strike again as he puts down White's mis-cued drive at midwicket. White doesn't trouble the fielders again as he swipes another six over the edge to complete the highest score ever in the 13-game history of Twenty20 internationals. A full toss yields a single and that's the end of the plunder. Figures of 1-64 from four overs by Anderson. 221-5
09:59 Fred's back, bowlign to his some-time Lancashrie team-mate Symonds, with the run-rate having been effectively slowed here. White gives Flintoff the long handle through extra cover for four then takes two to long off to bring up the 200. Flintoff digs one in shirt to smack him on the face-grille but he gets a single anyway. 204-5
09:55 Collingwood varies his pace and line well to keep these batsmen to swapped singles. There's a well-run two of the fourth ball. Oops. Symonds flicks a low full toss over midwicket. Dalrymple is about five yards in front of the rope and the ball goes just over his head. 194-5
09:50 Lewis, who played in that match for Gloucestershire, gets deja-vu as White hooks his second ball through midwicket for six. Even when he plays and misses they take a single towards gully. Symonds was trying to go over midwicket but gets four though fine leg. 182-5
09:43 Symonds bludgeons Collingwood through the covers for four then flicks a low full toss for another boundary. White was the architect of the highest Twenty20 total ever, Somerset's 250-3 against Gloucestershire last summer. Colly keeps him in check, though. 168-5
09:41 - Wicket How could you ever think there is a single on to Collingwood at gully? Clarke commits suicide, Colly whips it in and Nixon completes the job.
09:40 Lewis in the attack, with Nixon standing up to the stumps. Clarke takes two to Dalrymple in the deep. They're not just crashing boundaries but putting the pressure on with every ball.
09:35 Collingwood is using the slower ball regularly to new batsman Michael Clarke, who gets off the mark with a couple. 153-4
09:31 - Wicket Jon Lewis makes amends as Ponting is cramped as he attempts a sweep and gets an edge high to deep square leg. Lewis, who put Ponting down on 16, raises the ball to the crowd.
09:30 13th over: Panesar will bowl his entire quota in a single, marathon spell of four overs. Andrew (Larry Dooley) Symonds swipes him just wide of long on for a cracking six. The rest of the over is quick, flattish and full and Panesar taken an impressive 2-39 in his spell. 149-3
09:08 Huzzah! Monty Panesar comes on, giving me just enough time to add this from Fraser "Lets not forget yaphet kotto in live and let die as both kanaga and mr big. I can't especially when I think of him pulling his own face off." You never knew that praising Yaphet Kotto would get you on obo did you you unlucky lot? Nixon is shouting dance instructions at Monty: "slow, slow, quick, quick, slow!" he shouts. And so Monty mixes it up, including a round-arm delivery that thoroughly deceives Gilchrist. The next ball is less impressive, and Gilchrist hits a six over Monty's head.
09:02 Gilchrist takes three successive sixes off the luckless Anderson from a couple of hooks and a crushing drive. Anderson finally finds a yorker to get Gilchurch off strike. You forget just how breathless Twenty20 is. Blink and you miss something massive. 73-1
08:55 Ponting and Gilchrist have decided to milk singles from Flintoff. That is, until Ponting decides to hit a huge six with a brutal pull, and um, then a four with a cut. Ponting has obviously given up on the singles plan. I've certainly given up writing about it. 50-1
08:53 Gilchrist shows his ingenuity with a wonderful late cut for four. Gilchrist then pushes the first single of the match and Ponting gets off the mark to backward point, where Pietersen is below his best. 34-1
08:52 - Wicket After being hit for a six Anderson hits back as Hayden slices the ball to Dalrymple at mid-off. 28-1
08:50 Flintoff delivers a couple of dot balls before Gilchrist edges and Pietersen fumbles at point, allowing two. Flintoff digs on in to Gilchrist, like he did during the 2005 Ashes, and there's a wild swing. 22-0
08:45 Jimmy Anderson shares the new ball and Matthew (Haydos) Hayden steps back and gives it some humpty, over midwicket, bouncing and slowing but still hitting the boundary rope. Monty is fielding at leg-slip, which could prove good value. hayden almost beheads Anderson with a blasting drive straight down the ground. There's a great bit edge but it falls in front of deep square leg. A third four, blasted through midwicket. 20-0
08:38 Much is being made of England's relaxed appearence, inspired by the "laid back" Michael Vaughan. Hmmm. Let's wait till some pressure is on shall we, before we get carried away. So so, Flintoff bowls the first over, and his second ball is a leg-side wide, as is his third. Inbetween, Gilchrist slashes at a wide one and slices it high for four over slips. 6-0
08:35 Out come the umpires, Peter Parker (who looks nothing like Spiderman) and Bob Parry, followed by a fired-up England side.
08:27 MP Vaughan, EC Joyce, A Flintoff, IR Bell, KP Pietersen, PD Collingwood, PA Nixon, JWM Dalrymple, J Lewis, JM Anderson, MS Panesar
08:26 Australia - AC Gilchrist, ML Hayden, RT Ponting, MEK Hussey, MJ Clarke, A Symonds, CL White, GB Hogg, NW Bracken, BW Hilfenhaus, SM Harwood
08:25 Australia win the toss and choose to bat first
08:20 Nixon, 36, became the oldest England debutant since John Childs, who was a handful of months older, when he faced West Indies in 1988.
Michael Vaughan returned for the first time in 13 months, taking over the captaincy from Andrew Flintoff.
And there was also a first appearance in England's coloured clothing for left-arm spinner Monty Panesar.
Andrew Strauss, struck on the helmet during last week's fifth Test defeat as England surrendered the Ashes 5-0, was rested so Ed Joyce, his Middlesex colleague, came in at the top of the order.
The previous meeting between the teams in this form of the game ended in a thumping 100-run win for England at the Rose Bowl in 2005.
Australia captain Ricky Ponting won the toss and chose to bat first in a game which fast bowlers Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson were ruled out of.
