44.4 Michael Neser to Jos Buttler

FOUR! Michael Neser to Jos Buttler. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Four for Buttler to finish seal the victory! What a classy shot as he lofts the half-volley over the covers and the ball goes sailing away to the ropes. England secure a comfortable six wicket victory, completing their second highest run chase in the process, yet they did it with ease. England go 4-0 up in the series and once again it's thanks to the blistering top order of Roy, Bairstow and Hales who put England in a secure position for Buttler to come along and blast England over the line with 32 deliveries remaining. Australia put up good resistance, posting 310 never looked enough though, perhaps for the first time in England's history they saw the 300+ target as easily chase-able. Morgan described England as not far from perfection after their record breaking performance on Tuesday, that may well sum up this entire series should they secure a 5-0 whitewash at Old Trafford on Sunday. Australian heads have dropped and they will need something special to turn fortunes around before this series is finished.

44.3 Michael Neser to Jos Buttler

Michael Neser to Jos Buttler. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 2 runs, by Finch. Buttler gets to his 50 from just 28 deliveries, he's slogged the free hit and it's gone straight up to long-on. They run two though, he can't be caught out as it's a free hit and he comes back for his 50. A brilliant innings to take England over the line here.

FOUR! Michael Neser to Jos Buttler. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Beautiful from Buttler who gets England over the 300 mark. It's overpitched from Neser just a touch and it's driven through the covers for four.
