  • 297 is the target! England will fancy themselves to chase this down but it won't be that easy. Can they do so? Join us in a while to find out.
  • The England bowling was decent throughout. Wood and Curran started off well before the former walked off due to an injury. The two spinners fared decently. Liam Plunkett, despite being expensive was the pick as he finished with a four-fer.
  • The Australia innings was all about one man - Steven Smith. It was his hundred which has taken them to the position they are in. The rest of the batters did get starts but nothing significant. Everybody who batted with Smith, played around him and he was the anchor. Had any other batsman, converted their start, Australia would have posted a big first innings score.
  • So Australia have ended with a score they will be pleased with. however, England too won't be disappointed with what they have to chase. The game is evenly poised as we head into the break.
  • 49.6 OUT! RUN OUT! So a single and a wicket to end the innings! Zampa hits it towards deep mid-wicket and the batters take one. Zampa wants another and he runs towards the keeper's end. The fielder throws it to the keeper and then Buttler fires it to the bowler who whips the bails off. AUSTRALIA END WITH 297!
  • 49.5 OUT! A very harsh call one cay say, probably the soft signal played a big, big part there. Curran bowls a yorker on middle, Smith looks to flick it but it goes back towards the bowler who takes it and appeals. The umpires get together and then take it upstairs. The SOFT SIGNAL IS OUT! Replays roll in and there is nothing very conclusive, the umpire after a few replays rules it in the favor of the bowler. End of a magnificent innings Smith. He has probably single handledly taken Australia to where they are at the moment.
  • Is that a catch? The umpires are not sure and they have taken it upstairs to check if it has bounced or directly on the boot. Smith has already started walking back and the SOFT SIGNAL IS ALSO OUT!
  • 49.4 Creams it to sweeper cover but does not take a run again. The last time he did so, he smashed a biggie on the next ball.
  • 49.3 SIX! Poor ball with mid off up! Curran was asking to be hit there. Full and on off, it is the slower one. Smith waits for it and then lofts it over mid off. It goes all the way.
  • 49.2 A low full toss on middle, Smith hits it towards deep mid-wicket and does not run.
  • 49.1 Slower ball and outside off, Smith lofts it over covers and the batters take two.
  • 48.6 No it does not! A dot to end but an expensive over. Short and outside off, Jason looks to pull again but misses. 288/7
  • 48.6 WIDE! Down the leg side, the batter looks to pull but misses. Will the extra ball cost England?
  • 48.5 FOUR! Fortunate one but Australia won't care. Short and on middle, Jason looks to pull but he is late on the shot. It hits the gloves and lobs over the keeper for a boundary.
  • Jason Behrendorff is the new man in.
  • 48.4 OUT! TIMBER! You miss, I hit! That is exactly what happened here. Plunkett delivers the slower one on off, Nathan is way too early in the heave. He misses and the ball hits the stumps. So once again, the bowler is making a good comeback after going for a biggie on the very first ball.
  • 48.3 Short and outside off, NCN goes hard but misses.
  • 48.2 Bowls it on the body of Smith and cramps him for room. Smith pushes it through covers for one.
  • 48.1 SIX! Just like the last over, this too begins with a biggie. Smith shuffles right across and Plunkett bowls it short, Smith paddles it over the keeper's head and it goes all the way.
  • 47.6 Another single to end the over! Smith jams it down to third man and retains strike. 10 from the over, not a bad one by Stokes after going for a biggie on the first ball. 276/6
  • 47.5 Quick runs! A yorker on off, Nathan jams it out towards mid off and gets to the other end.
  • 47.5 WIDE! Down the leg side, Nathan swings but misses.
  • 47.4 Another dot! A low full toss outside off, NCN carves it out to Collingwood.
  • 47.3 A yorker outside off, Nathan fails to jam it out.
  • 47.2 There is the ton for Steven Smith. What a knock on his comeback! Outstanding. The crowd is booing him but he does not care. He gets there with a mistimed pull towards mid-wicket for a single.
  • 47.1 SIX! Outrageous! How has he hit that there? A full ball outside off, Smith clears his front leg and then carves it over the point boundary for a biggie. He moves onto 99. Ideal start to the over.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile is the new man in. Ben stokes comes back on.
  • 46.6 OUT! In the air... what a catch that is. Take a bow Tom Curran. Plunkett bowls a slower one on middle, Carey looks to pull but is a touch early in the shot. He only manages to hit it high up in the air towards square leg. Curran there runs to his right and then with a full stretched dive, takes it. A handy cameo from Carey comes to an end. 266/6
  • 46.5 Shortish and that stayed a touch low. Smith goes down low and awkwardly pulls it through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 46.4 Excellent running! This is full and wide outside off, Carey jams it through point. They take two. The fielder in the deep gets across, collects it and throws it and the batters take another.
  • 46.3 FOUR! What a shot! Carey makes room and Liam bowls it wider outside off, Carey reaches out for it and lofts it over covers for a boundary.
  • 46.2 Bowls it short and on the body, it is pulled down to fine leg for a single.
  • 46.1 Slower one and it is short outside off, Smith goes for the cut but misses.
  • 45.6 FOUR! Beautiful placement. A full length delivery on middle and leg. Carey makes some room and just drives it wide past mid off fielder. This is just beautiful. 12 runs from the over. 25 from last 2 overs. 257/5
  • 45.5 Smith eases this towards the cover region for an easy run.
  • 45.4 Smith plays it to point region for a double.
  • 45.3 Full on leg, Smith flicks it to fine leg for a double.
  • 45.2 OH SO CLOSE! Carey just taps it on the leg side and runs for a single. Curran quickly gathers the ball and has a shy at the bowler's end, but misses. If this would have hit the stumps It could have been close call.
  • 45.1 Short on off, Carey pulls it to mid-wicket for a double.
  • 44.6 Carey works it fine on the leg side for an easy single. 13 from the over, Australia need a few more like these. 245/5
  • 44.5 FOUR! Full on off, Carey just chips it over the mid off fielder and gets an easy boundary. Second boundary in the over, clever batting.
  • 44.4 A short delivery now, Smith pulls it towards the square leg region for a single.
  • 44.3 Full on off, Carey punches it to long off for a single.
  • 44.2 FOUR! Oh dear that is a poor line. Plunkett bowls this way down the leg side, Carey just helps it down towards the fine leg fence.
  • 44.2 WIDE! Plunkett bowls this down the leg side. Umpire signals wide.
  • 44.1 Short and wide, Smith play late cuts it towards the wide third man region. They pick up a single.

  • Tom Curran is back on.
  • 42.6 A little too straight, Smith works it to mid-wicket. 224/5
  • 42.5 OUT! RUN OUT! The last thing Australia wanted and probably the last way you want to get out in a warm up game. Moeen bowls this short and on middle, this is pulled through square leg. The batters take one and then Smith wants the second, Stoinis is not interested but Smith continues running. Stoinis eventually had to go for it but he had no chance of making it. Woakes picks the ball up and throws it to the bowler who whips the bails off. So once again, just as a partnership was forming, England once again breakthrough.
  • Alex Carey is the new man in.
  • 42.4 FOUR! Smith is opening his arms now, sweeps it aerially towards the backward square leg region. Woakes runs to his right and dives to stop the ball but ends up deflecting it on the boundary ropes.

England Vs Australia Live Score (WARM-UP ODI) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • So that is it from this game! Warm up games don't end here as we have two for you on the 26th of May. Pakistan are taking on Bangladesh in Cardiff. The other game sees West Indies take on South Africa in Bristol. Both the games begin at 1030 local (0930 GMT). Till then take care and goodbye!
  • Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says their fielding was sloppy but overall, how they batted and bowled really good. Credits the way Steven Smith played. States they had their plans with the ball and it came off. Reckons the wicket got slower and Lyon bowled brilliantly. Further adds overall it was a good day and he is pleased with how they played. Tells Jason Behrendorff was brilliant with the new ball, he can bring it back in to the right-handers and when it does not swing he can challenge the outside edge which is very good. Ends by saying they were losing wickets at regular intervals and that is something they have to work on.
  • England skipper, Jos Buttler, says the bowlers were good, good to see Plunkett taking wickets. Mentions he is disappointed he did not win it but feels despite the injuries they are in good shape. States their waiting for results on Wood's injury. Credits the way Smith played on a tough track.
  • James Vince who is up for an interview says he is disappointed to not get over the line. Reckons the wicket was two paced and it was not coming onto the bat nicely. Credits the way Buttler played and mentions he took all the pressure off. Appreciates the efforts from the bowlers, he feels the total should have been chased but they lacked partnerships. Ends by saying there are a few injury worries but he hopes they are fine.
  • The Australian bowling was really nice! You know you have done a good job if you defend a target below 300 against this England batting line-up. Everybody had a wicket at least to their name but Lyon was the pick as he not only was economical but also took a wicket.
  • After Smith's magnificent ton, Australia put up a competitive total on the board on a tricky wicket and England did not get off to the best possible starts. They lost Bairstow early and Roy too did not make an impact. Vince however, held one end up and stroked a well crafted fifty. However, it was Jos Buttler's innings which put England on top again. Once he fell though, the English batters never got going. Vince too departed and then Australia not only managed to choke the runs but also took wickets regularly due to which the task was too much for England.
  • What an outstanding game! We mentioned, it is a clash between two favourites of the tournament and it lived up to that expectation. Yes, it was only a warm up game but don't think any team played it as such.
  • 49.3 RUN OUT! That is the end of the game! AUSTRALIA WIN BY 12 RUNS! A short ball on middle, Archer mistimes his pull towards deep mid-wicket. They take one, go for the second.

  • Jofra Archer is the last man in for England.
  • 49.1 OUT! That has been crunched but straight to Maxwell! Plunkett, probably England's last hope, is walking back. He comes down the track and smashes this short ball but does not get the desired elevation. He holes out to deep mid-wicket where Maxwell takes it. 15 in 5.
  • 48.6 They get a couple courtesy a misfield! 15 needed in the last over. Slower one again and it is outside off, Rashid slaps it towards Smith. He lets it through and concedes an extra run. 283/8

Woakes is off for a run but has to turn back. Stoinis picks the ball up and hits bull's eye at the non-striker's end. An appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. One replay was enough to see Woakes has to take the long walk back. Game once again in the favor of Australia.
  • A direct hit and is Woakes short? Australia do feel so. This is a big moment in the game.
  • 47.1 Just a single! Full and on off, Woakes creams it but straight to sweeper cover.
  • Stoinis comes in to bowl.

  • 40.5 A single as this is hit down to long on.
  • Tom Curran comes in next.
