Australia vs England Warm UP Match

AUS vs ENG Warm-Up: Australia beat England by 5 wickets

Australia clinched their second warm up game against England by five wickets in St Vincent.
Set to chase 198 by England, the Australians reached 200 for 5 in 40.5 overs. The win was set up on a century stand of 140 between Adam Gilchrist (72) and Shane Watson (55), not until the world champions, slipped to a minor batting collapse to be at 193 for 5. Although the target was achieved with 55 balls to spare, the Aussies failed to finish off in style despite the glorious start given by their openers.
Pre-Match Report: Australia go into Fridays warm up match against England with an uncertain bowling line up as captain Ricky Ponting remains unsure of who his best bowlers would be for the crucial fixture. "If we are not convinced on what our best XI is, then we may have to give six or seven bowlers seven or eight overs each," said Ponting on the eve of the England match. "We have one good win against Zimbabwe under our belt, hopefully there'll be another Friday," the Aussie skipper said. Australian bowlers appeared ineffective against Zimbabwe despite winning the match by 106 runs.
What was noticeable is that Zimbabwe resisted the Australian bowlers through the 50 overs and ensured they were not bowled out. Australias preparations have been hit by injuries to key players while a few top batsmen appear to have lost form. The Zimbabwe win may well have relieved the Australian camp a bit after their previous five games had resulted in defeats, including an embarrassing 3-0 whitewash to New Zealand and a 2-0 surrender to England in the CB Series finals at home.
