That's all from Hobart, two more games to come in this series, Melbourne on Friday and Sydney on Sunday, same time, same channel you be sure of it, bye for now...

Here's the Presentation. Man of the Match is Cameron White for his innings at the top of the order. We haven't heard from George Bailey so I can't bring you the thoughts of the winning skipper I'm afraid.

Change of captain for England but Stuart Broad has simply inherited the losers badge: "I didn't think 213 was actually too many. When you've got big powerful hitters targeting a short boundary it's hard to keep the run-rate below 10. We didn't lay a platform to give ourselves the best chance. We didn't play as well as we could have done. Scoreboard pressure played a big part and you're always going to feel the pressure. We've come back from losses and hopefully we'll do that at the MCG. We could have taken our catches, that was important and that's happened all year. In Tests last year we dropped 35 catches and we need to iron that out."

Lovely innings from Bopara, a new career top score for him in international T20s, but he was left with far too much work to do after the top order failed and England have lost again, Australia taking this opening T20 by 13 runs. That England made 200 in reply shows what could have been achieved but their batting wasn't up to scratch at all. By contrast Australia had big innings from Cameron White and Aaron Finch at the top of the order and their middle order cameo - from debutant Chris Lynn - has basically won them the game in the end. Not a day for the bowlers.
