Plunkett to JA Richardson, OUT, slower delivery, clubbed towards wide long-on... and Roy tumbles to take an excellent diving catch! Plunkett has four and England have wrapped up victory by 38 runs in Cardiff!

JA Richardson c Roy b Plunkett 2 (10m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Rashid to Tye, OUT, slider, Tye carts towards cow - picks out the man! Rashid is happy again, safely taken running across by one of England's best fielders, Tye unable to get the power and elevation he needed

AJ Tye c Billings b Rashid 10 (9m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Plunkett to Marsh, OUT, oh, GONE - bowled 'im! Plunkett hits the woodwork and Australia's best hope of winning walks off after a magnificent century. The crowd rises to applaud him up the steps, probably realising that wicket might have clinched the game... Slower ball from Plunkett, the cutter gripped and hit leg stump as Marsh swung across the line

SE Marsh b Plunkett 131 (178m 116b 10x4 3x6) SR: 112.93

Plunkett to Paine, OUT, short ball, into the body and Paine flips it straight to fine leg! This time the catch is held, a short-lived cameo from Paine but while Marsh is still at the other end Australia can dream. Think that was a cutter from Plunkett, no pace for Paine to work with

TD Paine c Rashid b Plunkett 15 (16m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 136.36

Rashid to Agar, OUT, does him with the googly, Agar stumped well out of his ground! Lovely bit bowling, lured him down and then spun it away as Agar swung down the ground, Buttler finished the job

AC Agar st †Buttler b Rashid 46 (50m 42b 7x4 0x6) SR: 109.52

Ali to Maxwell, OUT, hoisted down the ground as Maxwell tries to stay leg-sided, but Moeen does him in the flight, cramps him for room, and Willey at mid-on takes the critical catch!

GJ Maxwell c Willey b Ali 31 (38m 34b 4x4 0x6) SR: 91.17

Rashid to Finch, OUT, pinned on the shin and up goes the finger! Finch thinks about reviewing but thinks better of it. He was down on the sweep, plumb in front, and after a brief consultation he turns and walks. Huge wicket!

AJ Finch lbw b Rashid 0 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Plunkett to Stoinis, OUT, bosh! Back of a length, skids through Stoinis's defences, and into the stumps via an inside edge! Plunkett rewarded for hitting the length and extracting natural variation. Definitely kept low but it was a cross-seamer which exacerbated the lack of bounce

MP Stoinis b Plunkett 9 (21m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

W
Ali to Short, OUT, bit of turn, Short plays back, edged and snapped up at slip! Moeen strikes again, he's enjoying bowling to Australia... Short hadn't looked particularly adept, he had his struggles in the IPL, of course, and now he's heading back for 21 off 33 on ODI debut

DJM Short c Root b Ali 21 (61m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Wood to Head, OUT, flicked into the leg side, uppish but dying in front of midwicket... where Hales scoops up a brilliant one-handed catch! That is a superb effort, throwing himself forward and low to his right! They are going to check with the TV umpire, but the soft signal is out. Yep, Dharmasena is happy, England have the breakthrough. Wood has lopped off Australia's Head!

TM Head c Hales b Wood 19 (17m 15b 3x4 1x6) SR: 126.66
