    11.3 battered high in the air, and Hazlewood circles at mid-on to gather a steepling miscue! The knuckleball does the trick, Roy was deceived by the change of pace, was through his shot too soon, and an aggressive if at times streaky innings comes to an end 71/1
    19.1 bowled 'im, YJB deflects the ball on to his stumps! Starc makes the breakthrough, pace and zip off the pitch and Bairstow prodded with a wonky bat, trying to run it behind point but only getting an inside edge on to leg stump 117/2
    26.1 short ball, Hales tries to wallop it over square leg... but skews a top edge to point! Think that deflected off the helmet, Australia have used his head and Marsh breaks the stand. There's pace in this deck, seemed to surprise Hales and he top-edged it straight into the badge 151/3
    47.1 smashed high and hard, but not high enough! In the slot once again, Root got underneath his shot, much like Roy before him, and picks out the man right back on the fence 258/9
    28.3 this one carries, though - slashed over point and Stoinis takes a smart grab running in off the rope! Another low score in a poor series for the captain, he was trying to come down as Marsh dug in a 139kph delivery, Morgan off his feet as he swiped and perish in the deep 157/4
    34.6 full, and Buttler holes out to mid-off! That's a critical breakthrough for Australia, Warner back-pedals to complete the catch, and once again, Tye's slower ball draws out the miscue from a well-set batsman 192/5
    39.4 that's a very soft dismissal from Moeen! Down the track, losing his shape, a wellied drive in the air to cover, and England's hopes of their habitual 300-plus total are looking bleak all of a sudden 214/6
    43.5 run out! Stabbed to point, and just the minutest hesitation does for Rashid, as a screaming shy from point plucks out the non-striker's poles! 238/7
    45.4 a mow over the leg side, and another catch in the deep! And was that another Tye slower ball? Certainly looked as though Willey was through his shot early, flapping the ball much squarer than he might have intended. This is a fine collective bowling effort from Australia, and England just can't get any momentum back into their innings 245/8

    47.4 well bowled! And that is five for Tye! Yorker, straight and true, rattles the timbers, and England's innings has come to an ignominious end 259/10

    3.2 oh, slips under the bat, Warner's been castled! Curran gets it right up on the toes and Warner is done, maybe yorking himself with a lack of footwork, a poor series finishes on a low note... Out comes the Aeroplanino celebration from Curran, England have their first wicket 24/1
    13.6 knocked into the covers, called through for a tight single, there's a direct hit and this could be tight... although they then try to pinch a second on the ricochet. It goes up to the third umpire and Head is struggling here, there's only a frame or two in it, but he's not managed to get his bat over the line - this is going to be out! Morgan was the fielder, he pretty much hit the bails with a sharp throw 86/2
    33.6 full toss, slugged to long-on - no hundred for Stoinis! He goes for 87, unlucky for this Aussie... he skipped out and smashed it flat down the ground but didn't get it as high as he needed and Tom Curran raced in to take an excellent diving catch 189/5
    21.4 beaten and stumped! Moeen slides one past Smith's edge, he played for the turn but it went straight on, and another non-descript innings from the skipper comes to a tame end! 119/3

    23.5 what a stunning catch! Absolutely panned back down the pitch, high to Moeen's right, but he sticks out a mitt, and the ball sticks between thumb and forefinger! The umpire has hit the deck, and Moeen looks as startled as the batsman that that has not sizzled to the boundary! 133/4
    36.1 rapped on the pads, nibbling in sharply... Buttler is appealing desperately for lbw and England decide to review; did Maxwell hit it? No, this has pinned him on the back leg, right in front middle and leg! The decision is overturned, Maxwell has failed to stay and see it through... Bit of a frantic swipe, although it was well bowled, jagging past the bat 192/6
    48.2 hits the stumps! Curran wins it for England! Paine's heroics in vain, beaten by reverse swing to rattle leg stump - Curran claims a maiden international five-for with the final ball! What a finish, a cracking match to christen the new Perth Stadium 247/10
    36.3 angled across, nips late and takes the edge - Buttler swallows it going low to his left! Curran leaps to punch the air, brilliant bit of bowling and a catch to match! He was trying to tuck to leg when he needed to play straight, Starc heads off with Daddles for company and Australia are seven down, the chase getting trickier and trickier 192/7
    39.2 takes the leading edge, snapped up at cover! England have another, this is turning into a full-blown collapse! Tye misjudges this on the back foot, working across the line and it's a simple catch for Morgan 203/8

    46.3 bowled 'im! Woolly swing of the bat and Curran knocks back middle stump! Silence washes over the Perth Stadium, Zampa's gutsy knock is ended and England are one wicket away 236/9
