Commentary

Australia have beaten England by nine wickets and even that doesn't put in perspective the magnitude of this victory. They've also won a bonus point in the process. Mitchell Johnson wins the Man-of-the-Match award for his searing spell of 4 for 45.

Thank you for tuning into Cricinfo's live coverage of this match. We'll be back on Sunday when Australia take on New Zealand at Perth. Do join us then. Have a good weekend. Cheers!
