Commentary

10.35pm: Out we go to the middle again, lots of baubles to hand out. Ravi Bopara is indeed Man of the Match: "The lads played really well, the pitch was a little but stoppy, but it got better as the night went on ... It's about time I was there at the end. I think it was important I got an early knock and that innings at The Oval stood me in good stead. [No. 6 next week?] Well, hopefully!"

Australia captain, Michael Clarke: "England showed what a class team they are, for some of the younger guys who haven't seen them before and it shows the hard work we need to do for 12 months' time. It was a wake-up call for the team. We've got a lot of players who haven't faced these conditions, haven't faced that kind of attack. I want to take nothing away from England ... We'll be as well prepared [for Ashes next year] as we can be."

Man of the Series, Ian Bell: "We were helped by our bowlers, they set the tone and it's nice to chase a lower tottal. Batting at the top of the order sutis my style, so hopefully it's a good platform for the future. We've got to swtich back ino Test mode now and it should be an exciting series [against South Africa]."

England captain Alastair Cook: "It was another good performance from the bowlers, nice to get the win. I think our No. 7 didn't get a bat in this series so that shows how well we've done."

Right, this one has dragged on long enough. Thanks for all your comments, we'll be back again for the full works when the first Test against South Africa starts next Thursday. Cheerio for now!

That wraps up another convincing win for England, who claim a 4-0 series victory that will take them above India in the ODI rankings to third. Australia remain No. 1 in name only, with either England or South Africa likely to overtake them during their five-match series later in the summer. Ravi Bopara played another attractive, substantial innings, to go with his couple of wickets - probably enough for him to be named Man of the Match. We'll find out during the presentations in a moment or two.

Hilfenhaus to Morgan, 1 run, pitched up outside off and launched high over the infield again - won't run all the way either but it's plenty good enough to wrap up a seven-wicket Duckworth-Lewis win

END OF OVER:
27 | 7 Runs | ENG: 134/3

  • EJG Morgan5 (3b)
  • RS Bopara52 (56b)
  • CJ McKay5.5-0-24-1
  • BW Hilfenhaus5-0-18-1

So, England still require one to win ...

26.6

McKay to Morgan, 3 runs, full and Morgan gets under the ball, carting it high into the night sky, towards long-on - it plops a few yards short of the rope and won't roll any further
26.6
1w
McKay to Morgan, 1 wide, drifts down the leg side - wide
26.5

McKay to Morgan, no run, full and sliding across, beats Morgan's expansive drive
26.4
1lb
McKay to Bopara, 1 leg bye, length delivery, angling in on the stumps and Bopara misses the ball as he tries to close the face, hit on the back pat. Dar turns the appeal down but Clarke calls for the review ... and Hawk Eye shows the ball just shaving the bail, so it stays with the umpire's call and Bopara still has a chance to be there at the end
26.3
0
McKay to Bopara, no run, slower ball out the back of the hand, short of a length and Bopara mistimes his pull into the ground
