10pm So that's a wrap from Edgbaston. On the day that Germany crashed out of the World Cup, England have sent their oldest cricketing foes home without a crumb of comfort. It's been quite the week for English sport... Next stop, it's India. See you then.

9.55pm The man of the match is Adil Rashid... "It's been okay so far, the bowlers bowled exceptionally well throughout the summer. Hard work in the nets pays off."

"Mixing it up is part of my game. Finchy was going well, but Morgs gives all the bowlers confidence. No regrets about giving up red-ball cricket. It's something I'm happy with."

9.50pm Aaron Finch is chatting to Sky... "We could have been better, England put our youngsters under pressure which is the way they've played all summer. Mitchell Swepson on debut showed the value of someone who can give it a rip. It's been a good learning curve, we've had four months since the end of the season back home, you can't come in 1% off the boil. You have to be 100% ready to go, otherwise it's a long road."

"If the role's there I'd love to do it," Finch says of the ODI captaincy... "Tim's leadership around the group was spot on."

Eoin Morgan: "Sometimes when you get off to a good start, you can take your foot off the pedal, but we kept coming as hard as we could. Crucial wickets from the guys throughout the innings."

On the pressure for places: "It's been tricky for two years now. There are guys banging down the door, the level of ambition is high... we've not quite found our combination."

"To have close to our full-strength team is very exciting, and the public enjoy watching them perform."

9.46pm Bharathvaj Deva: "Tough to decide M.O.M Butler, Rashid and Finch were brilliant... " I think it has to be Buttler this time... an England record fastest T20 fifty, which set up the game.

9.41pm It's been clinical from England. A tremendous continuation of their power-hitting approach at the top of their innings, and a ruthless closure of the contest with the ball, particularly from the leggie Adil Rashid. Aaron Finch battled gamely in a captain's knock, but it's been one-way traffic on a desperate tour for the Aussies.

Gyan: "19.3 - The commentator's curse?" 19.4 ... the commentator's vindication!

w
Plunkett to Stanlake, OUT
that'll do it! High on the bat this time, chipped to Morgan at cover, to complete a thumping England win!

Plunkett to Stanlake, SIX runs
in the slot and slogged over cow corner! Like Devon Malcolm at Sydney 1994! He's got levers you know!
19.2
Plunkett to Stanlake, no run
another bouncer, another air shot. Stanlake, for all his talent as a bowler, strikes me as a very traditional No.11. And hurrah for that, they are a dying breed

wide yorker to finish, he's bowled that line very well. Chopped to point and Willey completes a fine evening's work

a flashing drive to deep extra cover

w
Willey to Tye, OUT
taking on the rope once more, but picks out the lanky Plunkett at wide long-on! Toe-ended but it had legs on it. Plunkett had to time his leap but did so with aplomb. Nearly done.

Willey to Tye, SIX runs
... but sixes still keep them alive! This one is massive, in the slot for a swing back down the ground

Fours won't suffice now for Australia...

DAvidS: "Does this count as a whitewash?" It'd be rude not to

low full toss, can't do much with that, punched straight, and Jordan's day's work is done

Jordan to Swepson, no run
full and straight, but Swepson the debutant responds with a firm defensive push

Jordan on a hat-trick ... he won't have many better chances...

Kaushik: "Will Ashton Agar be the next Michael Bevan today? " No. Next!

Jordan to Richardson, OUT
no he can't! A grim day ends with a first-baller. A limp drive to mid-off. Sometimes there's no place to hide
KW Richardson c Hales b Jordan 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Kane Richardson had a stinker in the field. Can he lamp a few now?

17.2

Jordan to Agar, OUT
bowled round the legs! Agar lined up a swish to the leg side, but Jordan responded with an arrow-straight yorker. Put a bow on it, this one is done

Jordan to Tye, 1 run
low full toss, but arrow-straight. Morgan gathered at cover, and had time to nail his shy. That would have been out!

Jordan is back. He had a torrid first couple of overs, but recovered well
