So England win by 15 runs and beat Australia at Lord's for the first time since 1997. Eoin Morgan's innings setting up a solid total that they have defended comfortably in the end...Still four games to come in this series starting on Sunday at The Oval, join us then for all the best live coverage but goodbye for now...

49.5

49.4
0
Finn to Lee, no run, length ball, a heave and a miss and England have all but won
49.3

Finn to Doherty, 1 run, inside edge behind square on the leg side to a length ball

Three sixes and a one required...

49.2
1
Finn to Lee, 1 run, length ball drilled down the ground

Five fours needs...

49.1
1
Finn to Doherty, 1 run, steps to leg, gets hit on the body, they charge a run, Finn can't hit the bowler's end stump so they take a run

So Finn to bowl the last over of the game, with 21 to win, this would be something outrageous for Australia to pull this off...
