10pm So that's a wrap from Edgbaston. On the day that Germany crashed out of the World Cup, England have sent their oldest cricketing foes home without a crumb of comfort. It's been quite the week for English sport... Next stop, it's India. See you then.

9.55pm The man of the match is Adil Rashid... "It's been okay so far, the bowlers bowled exceptionally well throughout the summer. Hard work in the nets pays off."

"Mixing it up is part of my game. Finchy was going well, but Morgs gives all the bowlers confidence. No regrets about giving up red-ball cricket. It's something I'm happy with."

9.50pm Aaron Finch is chatting to Sky... "We could have been better, England put our youngsters under pressure which is the way they've played all summer. Mitchell Swepson on debut showed the value of someone who can give it a rip. It's been a good learning curve, we've had four months since the end of the season back home, you can't come in 1% off the boil. You have to be 100% ready to go, otherwise it's a long road."

"If the role's there I'd love to do it," Finch says of the ODI captaincy... "Tim's leadership around the group was spot on."

Eoin Morgan: "Sometimes when you get off to a good start, you can take your foot off the pedal, but we kept coming as hard as we could. Crucial wickets from the guys throughout the innings."

On the pressure for places: "It's been tricky for two years now. There are guys banging down the door, the level of ambition is high... we've not quite found our combination."

"To have close to our full-strength team is very exciting, and the public enjoy watching them perform."

9.46pm Bharathvaj Deva: "Tough to decide M.O.M Butler, Rashid and Finch were brilliant... " I think it has to be Buttler this time... an England record fastest T20 fifty, which set up the game.

9.41pm It's been clinical from England. A tremendous continuation of their power-hitting approach at the top of their innings, and a ruthless closure of the contest with the ball, particularly from the leggie Adil Rashid. Aaron Finch battled gamely in a captain's knock, but it's been one-way traffic on a desperate tour for the Aussies.

Gyan: "19.3 - The commentator's curse?" 19.4 ... the commentator's vindication!

Plunkett to Stanlake, OUT, that'll do it! High on the bat this time, chipped to Morgan at cover, to complete a thumping England win!

Plunkett to Stanlake, SIX runs, in the slot and slogged over cow corner! Like Devon Malcolm at Sydney 1994! He's got levers you know!

Plunkett to Stanlake, no run, another bouncer, another air shot. Stanlake, for all his talent as a bowler, strikes me as a very traditional No.11. And hurrah for that, they are a dying breed

Willey to Stanlake, 1 run, wide yorker to finish, he's bowled that line very well. Chopped to point and Willey completes a fine evening's work
