48.3 - M Stoinis to J Buttler
FOUR! ENGLAND WIN BY 1 WICKET! A length ball in the zone outside off, Jos crunches it through covers for a boundary. Buttler leaps in joy and the crowd has gone bonkers. What a win! What a terrific win! Jos Buttler, take a bow. Smiles all around in the English camp. Mission 5-0 accomplished.
48.2 - M Stoinis to J Buttler
In line of the stumps, Buttler shows his back leg first to put off the bowler but then stays back and defends it down.
48.1 - M Stoinis to J Buttler
A length ball on middle, Buttler helps it through mid-wicket but denies the single. Taking no chance now.
Ov 48: 1 0 0 0 1 1 ( 3 Runs )
47.6 - K Richardson to J Buttler
Looks for the yorker but fails to execute it properly. A full toss on off, Buttler pushes it firmly down to long off for a single. 2 needed more. England's game to lose.
47.5 - K Richardson to J Ball
Wrong line, it's full and on middle and leg, Ball flicks it behind square leg and they cross for a run. Buttler is back on strike, England 3 away, can he hit a boundary?
47.4 - K Richardson to J Ball
A length ball on off, Ball stays back and pushes it to covers.
47.3 - K Richardson to J Ball
This is pressure and Ball is dealing with it quite well. Gets a fullish ball on off, once again moving in and he drives it to covers.
47.2 - K Richardson to J Ball
Very full and swinging back into the batsman, Ball does well to keep it out towards covers.
47.1 - K Richardson to J Buttler
What? Just a single. Has Buttler misjudged this? A full ball around off, it's been driven down to long off and he crosses for a run. It stays that way as the fielder is quite active in returning the ball back.
