49.6 - C Woakes to C Bancroft
FOUR! That is it! Bancroft finishes it in style. Excellent by the youngster, remains unbeaten in the run chase on his Test debut and also hits the winning runs for his team, a big confidence booster for him. Coming to the ball now - It's full on off, Bancroft drives it uppishly past the silly mid off fielder who leaps and tries to get two hands at it but is late to react. The ball goes through mid off for a boundary. Warner walks up to the youngster and gives him a handshake and a hug. Turns towards the dressing room and gives a fist pump as they walk off to a standing ovation from the crowd. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 10 WICKETS!
