Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: Alan Gardner

9.20pm: Right, thanks for sticking your head in again, we've had fun in the sun up towards the wall. England roll on, 4-0 up with one to play: George's report will tell the story, then why not pop over to ESPN FC for the latest from the World Cup? That's it from us for tonight, join us again for more slam-bam exploits from Old Trafford on Sunday. Bye!

9.10pm: Presentations time, Mike Atherton is joined by Australia captain Tim Paine: "Yeah, thought we were 30-40 short, Shaun and Aaron batted really well but we didn't quite finish off. [Enough to challenge?] Thought we were in the game for a patch, didn't quite execute up front and Jonny and Jason jumped all over it. [Another tough dy - dropped Hales] I'm trying to enjoy it, when it rains it pours, you've got to catch those but it just bobbled out. We came here with an inexperienced side and while it's not an excuse, we're up against the best side in the world and they're red hot at the moment. We've got to keep learning and take things out of the game, this will hold them in good stead."

England captain Eoin Morgan: "Thought we played pretty solid cricket, lost the toss and our objective was to chase something that was within our grasp. We struggled to take wickets but managed to control the run rate, which is nice when the batting line-up we have is firing. [300 easy for you now?] It depends on conditions, feedback was that the wicket was good, Jos' evaluation, 'Was it a good score, a chaseable score?', and certainly at halfway we thought it was within our grasp. [Overton debut] He impressed, his opportunity came today, he his straps, which was awesome. There might be an opportunity in the next game. [Aiming for 5-0] We like playing at Old Trafford, the challenge is to finish it off."

Jason Roy is Man of the Match: "I'm feeling like I'm in a good training routine, just want to get out there and do my job. Just trying to control my innings, pace my innings, so I can set some good foundations. Unfortunately I didn't kick on today. [Relay catch to remove Marsh] Was just hoping I would catch it and for Overs to dig me out. The big fellow did well."

9pm: England stroll home with 32 balls to spare, completing their second-highest chase in ODIs with barely a flutter of nerves to go 4-0 up in the series. That was almost as brutal as the other day, dismissively seeing Australia's hard-fought 310-8 and raising them so high they had to fold. Jason Roy made his second hundred in three innings, Jonny Bairstow just 79 off 66 today, and then Jos Buttler trashed any lingering hopes Tim Paine might have had of his bowlers pulling something out of the fire. Australia's top three all produced good innings on paper... but from 225-1 they somehow managed to produce a total that was barely par. Their tough trot goes on.

Free hit, then
