9.22pm: That'll be that from us today. Valkerie's report will appear here pretty shortly, and George will have some analysis on Morgan's captaincy from the ground later tonight. Thanks for joining Saurabh, Ranjith, Thilak and me throughout the afternoon and evening, and we'll be back with you for the third and deciding ODI on Wednesday. Cheers!

Here's the presentation. Aaron Finch: "We knew that it would be tough for new batters to start on a wicket like that, but still very disappointed. [How do you stop a collapse?] That's a million-dollar question. We might not have been 100% committed to our plans, and might have overplayed the situation in our heads. [Death bowling] They played nicely. We bowled a touch wide and gave them a few opportunities to free their arms. [Conditions] They're no excuse for that collapse. Not the most viewer-friendly contest, but there was a contest between bat and ball. When you've got an opportunity to see the chase home, you're disappointed."

Jofra Archer is player of the match: "You try to feel as good as possible. [What did Morgan say?] He gives us the freedom to bowl whatever we want. He very seldom tells us 'no'. This is a second-day wicket, so you have to do too much - you don't have to get too funky with variations."

Eoin Morgan: [Fun?] Yeah, definitely it. It's a confidence-booster for myself and the team. When the bowlers bat like that, it makes the captain look good. But that was as well as we've bowled for a while. It reversed a little bit, went up and down... full credit to the guys collectively. [All-in with Woakes/Archer] It was the only way we were going to win the game. It was like your stack is going low and you need to go in pretty soon if you want something to happen. The bowlers made us look good, particularly when Jof and Woakesy came back against Labuschagne and Finchy."

Jon Y: "...and once again Rashid gets a wicket with the last ball of his spell..."

Kaig: "What a choke!"

Mani: "For me the MoM should be given to Morgan for his stunning captaincy!"

Jimmy: "Well done England but hang on, is this Jos Butler's first stumping as a wicket keeper in an international game?" -- Err, no. In fact, only Godfrey Evans has more stumpings for England.

9.10 pm: Magnificent win by England. They looked dead and buried at various stages while batting and bowling, but just kept at it. While batting, the depth in the line-up meant they could put up a total that gave them something to bowl at. While bowling, the Archer-Woakes duo broke the game open with an incredible mid-innings burst. Morgan took the bold decision to bowl them both out by the 35th over, and it paid off how! Stick around for the presentations, they are bound to be interesting.

w
Rashid to Carey, OUT
stumped by a mile! and England have kept the series alive. The slog sweep weren't working for Carey so he shimmies down the track. Rashid bowls a third successive googly - Carey hasn't been reading them anyway - and this is out of his reach, spinning further away. Fast hands by Buttler to whip the bails off and seal the win.

Rashid to Carey, no run
googly and he misses it! Clearing his front leg to sweep that into oblivion, can't get bat on it with the google floated up on off and turning away

Rashid to Hazlewood, 1 leg bye
quick single taken. Tossed up googly that Hazlewood didn't read, was trying to tickle it fine, goes into the offside

What can Hazlewood do?

48.1

Rashid to Carey, 1 run
flat and fullish, goes for the slog-sweep, but only gets the bottom edge to short fine leg.

Bairstow going to long-on instead of Archer. Might be the area Carey will target, hence.

27 needed off 12. Adil Rashid for his last over with Carey on strike. This is thrilling.

SM Curran to Carey, 1 run
back of a length, tucked out to square leg to keep the strike
47.5

SM Curran to Carey, 2 runs
bustling line and length, Carey heaves it down the ground with a grunt, but no timing. It trickles down towards long-on, and they'll pinch a second run
47.4

SM Curran to Carey, FOUR runs
back of a length, Carey gets it up over mid-off for four! Slightly too short from Curran, banged into the pitch, and Carey swung hard, cross-batted, to send it over the rope after a couple of bounces

SM Curran to Hazlewood, 1 run
width outside the off stump, cut away in front of square to get Carey back on strike

Vikas: "Really don't understand Carey's approach. Never going to win a match like this."

1
SM Curran to Carey, 1 run
banged in on a length, punched out towards wide extra cover and they pinch a single

The short boundary is on the off side for Carey. Everyone out leg side, four in the ring on the off. Mid-off up

SM Curran to Hazlewood, 1 run
bustling medium pace, tight to the stumps, and Hazlewood clips into the leg side from the top of off to get off strike

37 from 18 balls, with Hazlewood on strike. It's a tall order... Sam Curran to bowl the 48th and 50th. Over the wicket

Rashid to Carey, FOUR runs
brings out the slog-sweep to a full ball, flat on off stump, and finally gets his first boundary! Eventually gets one out the middle, and it races away in front of square to beat Billings diving to his right at deep midwicket

Does Carey go for a boundary, or look for a single to retain the strike?
