Dec 172013
 

Since the 2009 Ashes series where Australia lost the Ashes to a class England team, the Australia’s have hungered to regain the little urn. So far they had been defeated three times in a row, but this time England couldn’t beat the rejuvenated Australian side.

Match report: 3rd Ashes test, day 5, WACA Perth, 17th December 2013.

The fifth day saw the Australians needing just 5 wickets to win, while England needed some 250 runs or bat out the day to see a draw. It was once again the Australian bowlers proving too good for the batsman, but not before Ben Stokes made his maiden test century, getting the highest total by an English batsman in this series with 120 runs before he was dismissed by Lyon in the 98th over.

Prior once again didn’t find form with the bat and was dismissed cheaply for 26, Bresnan made a meager 12 runs, and Australia were able to clean up the rest of the tail for just 8 runs, 4 to Swann, 2* to Broad and 2 to Anderson to seal England’s fate.

The touring side admits that the Australian’s have just played better cricket, and haven’t been able to play pace, particularly off Johnson well. That along with their below average batting performances from their top and middle order batsman have contributed to their 3-0 defeat so far.

England will most likely regroup and change their side for the upcoming Boxing Day test in just 9 days, with many people calling for the likes of Prior and Swann to be dropped. Australia will now take the next nine days to celebrate their win, after five years of missing the Ashes the team will celebrate with family and friends, and hope the keep their winning streak running by winning the last two remaining tests to secure a white-wash against England, something that is very rare indeed.

Scorecard: Australia 385 & 369/6d (Watson 103, Smith 111) defeated England 251 & 353 (103.2 overs) (Stokes 120, Bell 60, Johnson 4/78) by 150 runs.

The Ashes 2nd Test (Day 5): Australia seal emphatic victory!

Stuart Broad walked out to plenty of chat. While he didn’t shy away from giving it back, the feeling lingered that the bravado was misplaced. In the very first over of the day, when survival was the prime concern, he took on Siddle – pulled him over midwicket for a six despite there being two men stationed for exactly that shot. Siddle persisted, so did Broad with the hook – and the next ball was his last act. Matt Prior, on the other hand, looked in fine touch. He warmed up with couple of deliciously timed drives off backfoot against Johnson, one down the ground and another controlled pull. Increasingly assured with his strokeplay, he kept middling his pulls off Johnson’s short ones – reaching his half-century with one. Risk-free, but mixing attack judiciously, his free-scoring earned him seven boundaries, all off Johnson and Siddle as he scored thirty six quick runs. 

Australia though, were aware that they were into the tail, so they targetted the opposite end, and duly took out Swann when he struggled to keep away the edge from a length ball off Harris. Just as Prior took England past 300, and Barmy Army were finding their voice, Prior became the fourth England batsman in this innings to fall hooking. Anderson went the hit-n-giggle route briefly and Panesar yet again tried to buckle down, before Ryan Harris sealed the scoreline. England now, down two matches, are in a spot from where no England team has ever come back in an Ashes series. More importantly, with a much faster track in Perth coming up in less than a week, the onus is on them to turn it around for the jaded men quickly to face more hostile bowling from the host team.

Australia 570/9 d  and 132/3 d vs England  312 (Siddle 4/49, Root 87) and 172

A County Practice 29/6

It was a bumper Friday of T20 action in the UK with eight games played overall.

Durham 8-156 lost to Lancashire 3-165 (Katich 43no) by nine runs in the T20 competition at Durham

Us

Simon Katich blazed 43 from 25 balls to set up Lancashire’s nine-run win over Durham.

It was an exciting contest which exploded into life when Stephen Moore took the game to the home bowlers. His 58-ball 75 set the tone as the Red Rose batted up to 3-165.

Durham gave it a good crack in reply, but they fell just short of the victory target.

Worcestershire 9-102 lost to Glamorgan 4-159 by 58 runs (D/L) in the T20 competition at Worcester

Us

Jim Allenby got the Dragons off to the best possible start with a quick-fire 37 as Glamorgan set a tricky 4-159 for Worcestershire to chase. Marcus North contributing with 21 not out.

The west country rain did little to help their cause with Duckworth/Lewis coming into play. Michael Hogan (0-16 off three overs) bowled tightly in reply as the home side finished 58 runs short of the revised target.

Yorkshire 8-119 v Derbyshire 8-120 in the T20 competition at Headingley

Them

Jonny Bairstow turned out for Yorkshire but he couldn’t prevent a two-wicket loss to Derbyshire.

The England batsman could only make 12, with England Lions hitter Gary Ballance (44) top scoring as the White Rose posted 8-119.

It wasn’t plain sailing for the visitors in reply, but they just about had enough to pull through with three balls to spare.

Nottinghamshire 3-184 (Hussey 49no) lost to Leicestershire 8-183 by seven wickets in the T20 competition at Trent Bridge

Us

Joe Burns was stumped for 24, but some strong hitting elsewhere in the order meant Leicestershire were well on top in their game against Nottinghamshire at the break.

Niall O’Brien (47) and a fiery 14-ball 28 from number nine Robert Taylor set up a competitive 8-183.

The Outlaws, however, have a strong limited overs unit. England openers Michael Lumb (50) and Alex Hales (24) got them off to a good start, before James Taylor (37no) and David Hussey (49no) brought them home.

Hussey’s knock was a spectacular one. The Bushranger took apart The Foxes bowling hitting four fours and two sixes in his sparkling 25-ball innings.

Northamptonshire 4-124 beat Gloucestershire 9-83 by 41 runs in the T20 competition at Northampton

Us

Graeme White was the star with the ball taking 4-14 off three overs as his Northants easily defeated Gloucestershire.

In a rain-affected contest cut down to 12 overs a side, it was the home side who started brightly with Kyle Coetzer (39) top scoring in their 4-124. White chipping in with 28.

The left-arm spinner took the vital wicket of Michael Klinger in reply for 27 as the visitors fell well short of the victory target.

Kent 5-129 lost to Middlesex 6-111 by four wickets in the T20 competition at Canterbury

Vernon Philander took an eye-watering 4-8 for Kent but it wasn’t enough to beat Adam Voges’s Middlesex.

Batting first Kent could only muster 5-129.

Philander went to work in reply ripping out the top four, including Voges for two. But Adam Rossington’s crucial 41 not out saw them through to safety.

Sussex 7-147 lost to Surrey 6-157 by ten runs in the T20 competition at Hove

Surrey bounced back from their opening round defeat to see off the threat of Sussex.

Glenn Maxwell could only make six as the visitors posted 6-157.

Michael Yardy top scored with 44 in reply by Jade Dernbach’s 3-15 held them at arm’s length.

Somerset 320 & 260 v Australia 5-321 dec & 0-36 on Day three at Taunton

Us

It was a good day at the office for Australia who dominated proceedings with bat and ball over Somerset.

Firstly Phil Hughes carried on where he left off yesterday batting himself up to 76 not out before Michael Clarke declared on 5-321.

His bowlers relished that decision, particularly James Pattinson (3-61) and Nathan Lyon (3-73) as Somerset were ripped out for 260. Nick Compton making 34.

The tourists finished the day on 0-36 in reply needing another 223 runs for victory.

A County Practice 25/6

Cameron White made his one-day comeback overnight as his Northants outfit collected a simple win over Worcestershire.

Northamptonshire 3-188 beat Worcestershire 8-187 by seven wickets in the 40-over competition at Northampton

Us

Cameron White made his 2013 Northants debut with 24 as his side had enough in the tank to see off the challenge of Worcestershire.

The Royals could only post 8-187 from their 40 overs.

Kyle Coetzer was in inspired form hitting 106 in reply, with support from White and captain Alex Wakely (43) as they powered home to victory.

Nottinghamshire 6-223 v Sussex 5-506 dec (Joyce 204no) on Day three at Trent Bridge

Former England international Ed Joyce cracked a superb unbeaten 204 as Sussex moved into the final day in the stronger position.

Joyce was well supported by Rory Hamilton-Brown who made 113 as the away side declared on 5-506. 

In response James Taylor finished on 81 not out and Chris Read hit 45 as the home side got to stumps on 6-223. David Hussey could only make six.

Yorkshire 9-433 & 254 drew with Surrey 7-353 & 0-4 on Day four at Headingley

Championship leaders Yorkshire drew with Surrey on the final day of their match at Headingley.

Gary Keedy starred with the ball for the away side with 7-99 as the White Rose were all out for 254 in their second innings, Liam Plunkett top scoring with 68.

Surrey reached 0-4 in reply before time was called on the match.

Yorkshire will be keeping a keen eye on England’s warm up match against Essex after Joe Root was selected to move up the order in place of Nick Compton.

It’s the strongest indication yet that the right-hander will replace Compton in the opening slot after the Somerset batsmen’s poor run on the international stage of late. 

Leicestershire 302 & 214 lost to Essex 356 & 6-161 by four wickets on Day four at Leicester

Essex wrapped up a tight four-wicket win on a tense final day at Grace Road.

The home side were eventually bowled out for 214 in their second innings leaving a tricky victory target of 160.

Essex were pegged back on 5-79 in reply, before Ryan Ten Doeschate (37no) and James Foster (42) batted them home.

A County Practice 23/6

It was an up and down day for Australia A on a damp Saturday in England

Yorkshire 9-433 v Surrey 1-53 on Day two at Headingley 

Them

Kevin Pietersen will have to wait another day for his comeback bat after Yorkshire dominated again on day two.

Captain Andrew Gale fell two short of 150 as his side declared on 9-433. Gary Ballance (90) and Liam Plunkett (51) adding valuable contributions with the willow. 

In reply the London-based side were 1-53 at the close, Arun Harinath the man out for 36.

Worcestershire 7-505 dec v Glamorgan 277 & 7-200 on Day three at Worcester

Worcestershire closed in on a comfortable win over Glamorgan after excelling with the ball on day three.

Jim Allenby (82) and Michael Hogan (37) were stubborn at the crease as the Welsh side posted a first innings score of 277.

Following on Allenby (53no) was again in the runs, but his teammates weren’t so lucky.

The home side will be looking to take the three remaining wickets they need on the final day to sew up an innings victory.

Leicestershire 302 v Essex 6-196 on Day two at Leicester

Them

Leicestershire finished day two in a strong position thanks to Matthew Hoggard’s late wickets.

The former England Test seamer took 4-30 as Essex were pegged back on 4-28 replying to 302.

Mark Pettini (72), Ryan Ten Doeschate (40) and James Foster (45no) countered but it will be the home side who will be happier with proceedings going into tomorrow.

Nottinghamshire v Sussex 1-91 on Day one at Trent Bridge

Bad weather proved the major winner in Nottingham with only 25 over bowled on day one.

Sussex will resume tomorrow on 1-91, with Chris Nash (45no) and Michael Yardy (7no) at the crease.

Australia A 4-331 dec & 111 v Gloucestershire 122 (Sayers 5-24) & 3-162 (Klinger 22, Dan Christian 40no) on Day two at Bristol

Us

Chadd Sayers (5-24) bowled with great accuracy as Michael Klinger’s Gloucestershire were skittled for 122 in their first innings. Fawad Ahmed’s leg spinners getting rid of Benny Howell for 35.

Australia’s second innings didn’t really go to plan when they were brushed aside for just 111. Klinger was out for 22 in his side’s second dig, but new recruit Dan Christian looked good on 40 not out with the Bristol-based men needing another 158 runs to win on the final day.

A County Practice 21/6

Simon Katich top scored for Lancashire as wickets tumbled on a bowler dominated first day at Old Trafford.

Lancashire 8-121 (Katich 30) v Northamptonshire 62 on Day one at Old Trafford 

Us

Eighteen wickets fell for just 183 runs on a dramatic day of cricket at Old Trafford.

First Lancashire’s fearsome duo Kyle Hogg (7-27) and Glen Chapple (3-24) ripped through a Championship line up for the second consecutive fixture as Northamptonshire were all out 62.

It wasn’t all plain sailing for the Red Rose in reply as they slumped to 8-121, Simon Katich making the biggest score of the day with 30.

They will resume day two looking to build on their 59-run lead.

Worcestershire 3-322 v Glamorgan on Day one at Worcester

Us

Glamorgan started the day on the front foot with Michael Hogan scalping the wicket of Daryl Mitchell for two.

From then on, however, it was Worcestershire who dominated proceedings thanks to the efforts of Matthew Pardoe (102) and Moeen Ali (155no).

Jim Allenby took the wicket of Sri Lankan Test batsman Thilan Samaraweera for 38. But it was definitely the home side’s day as they closed on a strong 3-322.

Yorkshire 0-81 beat Middlesex 8-217 (Robson 1) by 17 runs D/L in the 40-over competition at Headingley

Yorkshire did a number on Middlesex on a wet afternoon in Leeds.

Batting first the away side got off to a flyer with Paul Sterling cracking a 20-ball 32. But Iain Wardlow’s 3-39 held them at arm’s length as they posted 8-217. Sam Robson could only make one batting at number four.

Persistent rain put Yorkshire against the pump in reply with Duckworth/Lewis kicking into play. But Andrew Gayle (34) and Adam Lyth (38) got their skates on as the White Rose won by 17 runs.

Derbyshire 2-36 v Scotland no result in the 40-over competition at Derby

Them

Scotland collected their first YB40 point after a washout in Derby.

The home side were on 2-36 when bad weather brought the match to an end.

A County Practice 15/6

Only two domestic one-day games were played overnight as England prepares for the semi-final of the Champions Trophy tomorrow.

Hampshire 8-277 (Carberry 53) beat Derbyshire 8-231 by 46 runs in the 40-over competition at Southampton

Them

England Lions opener Michael Carberry continued his strong form with the bat this season when he struck a free-flowing 53 against Derbyshire overnight.

Hampshire cruised to a 46-run victory over the hosts thanks to an excellent all-round performance with willow and ball.

After being sent in by the away side, The Royals posted 8-277, with Carberry leading the way at the top of the order, former South African opener Neil McKenzie making 38, and wicketkeeper Adam Wheater crashing 70 off just 41 balls.

In reply, Derbyshire lost Chesney Hughes (12) and Wes Durston (20) earlier as Hampshire tightened the screw.

Their hopes of victory were all but quashed when Shiv Chanderpaul was run out for 25 as they finished well shy of the victory target.

Lancashire 3-218 beat Scotland 9-217 by seven wickets in the 40-over competition at Old Trafford

The Lightening didn’t even need overseas Simon Katich for their win over Scotland who was rested ahead of Thursday’s Championship fixture against Northants.

Lancs raced to victory after restricting The Saltires to 9-217, Wayne White the pick of the bowlers with 4-38.

Ashwell Prince (98no) and Stephen Moore (53) were the mainstays in response as the home side cruised through with 3.3 overs remaining.

Glamorgan

The Welsh county have suffered a blow ahead of an important YB40 game against Leicestershire tonight with the news former England fast bowler Simon Jones will miss the clash with a shoulder injury.

It is just the latest set back for the seamer who has had a string of problems since starring for England in the 2005 Ashes series.

Glamorgan currently lie fourth in the Group C ladder, a place behind the Foxes.

They also announced this week that Kiwi Nathan McCullum will play the back end of their T20 campaign, replacing the injured Dirk Nannes.

A County Practice 15/6

It was a quiet night on the county circuit on a night when Australia were eliminated from the Champions Trophy by Sri Lanka.

Surrey

Former England captain Alec Stewart has been put in temporary charge of Surrey after the county sacked first-team director Chris Adams this week. 

Stewart will work alongside bowling coach Stuart Barnes as they look to revive the fortunes of the London-based club who are struggling in the ladder.

Despite the eye-catching form of Ricky Ponting, Surrey currently sit third bottom in the Division One standings.

They will be hoping for more four-day success when they travel to current leaders Yorkshire on Friday. It is expected Kevin Pietersen will play on the road back from his knee injury.

Australia 233 lost to Sri Lanka 8-255 by 20 runs in the Champions Trophy at The Oval

Us

Defending champions Australia are out of the Champions Trophy after a 20-run loss to Sri Lanka.

George Bailey’s side simply had to win to have any chance of progression in the competition, and they got off to the best possible start when Mitchell Johnson trapped Kushal Perera lbw for four.

Kumar Sangakkara was next to go for three, caught by Glenn Maxwell off Clint McKay as Sri Lanka’s top order wobbled.

However, the experienced Mahela Jayawardene held the innings together with an excellent 81-ball 84. He was supported by Lahiru Thirimanne (57) and Dinesh Chandimal (31) to set up a competitive total of 8-255.

The holders had to reach the run target inside 29.1 overs in order to qualify. After losing Shane Watson for five, bowled by Nuwan Kulasekara, Maxwell cracked a bright and breezy 32 from 20 balls as the run-rate crept up to eight an over.

But when four wickets fell in quick succession, Australia’s plans were scuppered.

Adam Voges stood tall with 49, but his dismissal, caught by Shaminda Eranga off Rangana Herath was the death nail in the coffin.

There appeared to be a late twist when Clint McKay and Xavier Doherty batted on.

Australia could still win the match, but tournament progression was now out of the question.

Needing 20 runs for victory McKay was the final man out for 30, Doherty at the other end on 15, the pair adding 41 for the final wicket.

A County Practice 15/6

It was a busy night of 40-over cricket in the UK overnight with Simon Katich and Michael Klinger both making valuable contributions for their respective counties.

Essex 166 lost to Lancashire 8-230 (Katich 60) by 64 runs in the 40-over competition at Chelmsford

Us

Simon Katich cracked a run a ball 60 as his Lancashire Lightening did a number on Essex.

In gloomy conditions the away side posted a competitive 8-230 off 40 overs, Katich the main man backing up his hundred in the County Championship with an excellent half-century.

In reply Hamish Rutherford scored 63, but Essex were eventually bowled out for 166.

Gloucestershire 6-229 (Klinger 45) beat Yorkshire 193 by 36 runs in the 40-over competition at Bristol 

Us

Michael Klinger returned to form with an important 45 as his Gloucestershire held on for an exciting 36-run victory over in form Yorkshire.

After being asked to bat first, Klinger and Hamish Marshall put on 51 for the first wicket. Klinger and Chris Dent continued to pile on the runs after before the skipper departed with the score on 110.

Some later order hitting moved the home side up to 6-229.

In reply Daniel Hodgson cracked 76, but a late order collapse proved costly for The Tykes who slipped from 6-166 to 193 all out.

Somerset 5-127 beat Leicestershire 124 by five wickets in the 40-over competition at Taunton

Us 

Joe Burns was out for six as his Leicestershire were beaten by Somerset in cold and damp conditions.

The Foxes drew the short straw when they were asked to bat first.

They started badly losing their first wicket for one. Things got worse as Somerset restricted them to 8-74. Michael Thornely dug deep to hit 49 to take them to a credible 124.

But it wasn’t enough as Somerset had enough to get over the line five down. England opener Nick Compton making 16 not out batting at six.

Nottinghamshire 4-242 (Patel 129no) beat Warwickshire 7-238 by six wickets in the 40-over competition at Trent Bridge

Them

England ODI all-rounder Samit Patel was the star for The Outlaws.

He blazed his way to an unbeaten 129, an innings which included 12 fours and four sixes, as Notts had enough in the tank to see off the challenge of Warwickshire.

Earlier The Bears batted well to set up a total of 7-238. Things looked good when Alex Hales (6) and Michael Lumb (21) were removed in reply.

But James Taylor (46) and Patel combined together in the face of some tight bowling to bring them through to victory.

Worcestershire 6-90 lost to Netherlands 4-92 by six wickets in the 40-over competition at Worcester

Tom Cooper top scored for the Dutch with 29 off 27 balls as they beat Worcestershire by six wickets in a rain-affected contest.

The home side managed to post a score of 6-90 off their allotted 18 overs.

Cooper and Daan Van Bunge (25) were the main men in reply.

A County Practice 14/6

Simon Katich cracked his first Championship century of the season for Lancashire and Joe Burns his maiden half-century for Leicestershire on a busy day in England.

Essex 273 v Lancashire 7-266 (Katich 120no) on Day two at Chelmsford

Us

Simon Katich was the hero for Lancs as they fought back on day two.

The left-hander was magnificent for his 120 not out, hitting 14 boundaries from 185 balls, as The Red Rose replied with 7-266 chasing Essex’s first innings score of 273.

Katich will be looking for some quick runs with the tail tomorrow and bat his side into an even stronger position.

Leicestershire 3-142 (Burns 67no) v Northamptonshire 7-567 on Day three at Leicester

Us 

Joe Burns came good with a rearguard 67 not out as Leicestershire batted themselves up to 3-142 on day three.

A draw now looks odds on thanks to Burns who faced 106 balls for his first half-century of the campaign.

The Foxes will be delighted with the Queenslander who has struggled for form since arriving in the midlands.

He now has an excellent chance to notch up a three-figure score when they resume play tomorrow.

Hampshire v Gloucestershire 7-349 (Klinger 4) on Day two at Southampton

Us

Michael Klinger was trapped leg before by Sohail Tanvir for four, but his Gloucestershire recovered to end the day in a strong position.

Klinger’s failure opened the door for former New Zealand Test batsman Hamish Marshall, who took it upon himself to crack 114 as the west country outfit finished 7-349 at stumps.

Middlesex 175 (Rogers 27) & 4-137 (Rogers 0, Robson 46) v Yorkshire 390 on Day three at Lord’s

Us

Sam Robson hit a second innings 46, but it was Yorkshire who completed day three in the stronger position.

Chris Rogers was removed for 27 in the first dig to spark a huge collapse as the home side were rolled for 175 in the face of Steve Patterson and Liam Plunkett who both took four wickets apiece.

Tykes captain Andrew Gale then enforced the follow on, and it proved to be a good decision when Ryan Sidebottom removed Rogers for a duck. Robson dug deep but he was bowled by Adil Rashid four short of a half-century as Middlesex wiltered.

They will resume play on 4-137 tomorrow.

Kent 4-73 (Hogan 2-21) v Glamorgan 378 on Day three at Canterbury

Us

Michael Hogan took 2-21 as Kent finished the day in a spot of bother at Canterbury.

Earlier Glamorgan were bowled out for 378. Murray Goodwin the star with 136, Jim Allenby (25) and Hogan (14) chipping in later down the order.

Hogan then took the huge wicket of Robert Key for 23 and Brendan Nash for four to leave Kent wobbling on 4-73.

Sussex 295 v Surrey 0-1 on Day two at Arundel

Us

Steve Magoffin made 11 off 12 balls as Sussex were eventually bowled out for 295 at Arundel.

Unless Magoffin finds his bowling boots a draw looks favourite with just two days remaining.

The seamer managed to squeeze in two overs before the close in reply, both of them maidens, as Surrey finished on 0-1.

Ricky Ponting will be looking to improve his healthy Championship average if he makes it to the middle tomorrow.
