So, Australia have won by 57 runs, and they've totally dominated this one-day series. England fly home tomorrow night for a few days with their families before they pack their bags again and head to the World Cup.

Adam Voges is the Man of the Match for his excellent unbeaten 80, a career-best that will ensure he is in the mix should any opportunities arise through injuries to Australian batsmen at the World Cup. Watson is the Player of the Series. And Cameron White begins his ODI captaincy career with a victory.

That's it from a massive summer of international cricket in Australia. Andrew Strauss and his men have lost this series, but they should take a bow for the thrashing that they gave Australia in the Ashes. Andrew McGlashan has been covering this ODI series for us, and his bulletin can be found here.

Thanks for joining us throughout this series, and do tune in again when these two teams begin their World Cup campaigns later this month. On behalf of all the commentators throughout this series - Sahil Dutta, Liam Brickhill and George Binoy - this is Brydon Coverdale signing off.

Hastings to Anderson, OUT, there it is! Australia have won this series 6-1 as Hastings bounces Anderson, who tries for a hook but just gets a top edge that flies high in the air and Haddin takes the catch.

Hastings to Yardy, no run, slower ball to start with and Yardy punches it to long-off, declining a single

Here's Hastings to try to finish this off.
