Australia win by 4 runs and draw series 1-1 Plenty of smiles from the Aussies, this win has been a long time coming but they've been the better of the sides today. Aaron Finch is named man of the match - it was his testosterone-felled half-century that revived the Australian innings. Not quite the finish of Adelaide but still a closely-contested game that showed Australia still have plenty to offer in the shorter formats.

Just a quick aside before the presentations, football fans in the UK can be the first to see the Premier League goals on your mobile device, just visit ESPNGoals.com.

Collingwood reckons England were in a good position after the first six overs but got stuck with too many dot balls. "Not quite good enough," is his verdict. Sounds about right. Brydon has summarised all in his bulletin, so be sure to feast on that.

That's all from us but you white-ball fiends needn't fear, we have seven, yes seven, one-day internationals ahead of us starting Sunday. Join us then.

Johnson to Morgan, OUT, that's the match! Morgan has gone! Got a leg-stump half-volley and tried to heave it over deep midwicket, really struck it well but the MCG is a big ground and he couldn't clear the fielder
