19.3 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Stokes is on the charge here! He comes down the track and makes into a full ball. He lofts it over mid on for a boundary. England may just decide to take on Stoinis as he is the weak link in this Australian bowling line-up. Runs needed below 200.

15.6 overs (2 Runs) FOUR! He has done well! A low full toss outside off, Buttler looks to drive but it goes off the bottom edge down towards third man. Jason runs across, dives and pushes it back in. The umpires goes upstairs to check. Replays roll in and they show that Jason Behrendorff did touch the ropes but he had pushed the ball away. Two to end the over. Expensive return for Starc.
Has that been stopped cleanly? Jason Behrendorff runs to his left from third man and stops the ball from going to the fence with a dive. His feet touch the rope but it looks to be clean. Let's say what the replays have to say.
