England win by 27 runs and it was a very efficient all-round display. Batted powerfully, mostly bowled with verve and the fielding was solid. That means the series is shared 1-1. I really wish these one-day legs of tours were three matches of each length (20 and 50) because often these T20 series are drawn. Anyway. It's been an entertaining couple of games. Some excellent cricket on show. I'll bring you the presentation shortly.

George Bailey "We lost a couple of early wickets which put England on top. We had some good patches with the ball, I thought Fawad did really well. His pace was really good today. It was tough with that wind."

Stuart Broad "After losing the toss the guys adapted to conditions really well. To get 60 off the first six was a great effort. Today we didn't even need the powers of Buttler. You can't ask much more of Jade than the last two games. We wanted to take the wicket-taking options whenever we could. Both batting performances have been exceptional. We still need to nail our skills a bit better with the ball, but the wickets have been fantastic."

That just about wraps things up from today. We now move into ODI action; England travel to Ireland and Australia head up to Scotland with both those matches on Tuesday. England and Australia will then lock horns in five ODIs starting next Friday. We'll bring you all the action as always. For now, though, from myself and Alan Gardner it's goodbye.
