"I felt like I played well to get us up to a good score," said Jos Buttler, the player of the match. "It turned out to be a fantastic game. We needed Stokes to hit that last ball for six as well, too, him hitting that last ball for six…and that fantastic over at the death."

"A little tight," admitted Morgan. "After our first 3 or 4 wickets to take them so early was fantastic. The seamers thrived on the conditions tonight." Unfortunately, the mic was broken so we didn't hear clearly from Angelo.

That's all from us. If you've got nothing better on tomorrow, you might like Aus v India - a minor little scuffle. It'll pass the time though! Thanks for your company today, and goodnight.
