England win by three wickets with plenty of time to spare. It's been one of their less convincing chases and for a little while it appeared they may stumble as they did against Scotland. But David Willey played calmly, an ODI career-best for him, and Australia were left to rue their own poor batting display. Eoin Morgan and Joe Root played nicely, but England's win was set up by the performance of their spinners earlier in the day. We'll bring you the presentations shortly

Sudharshan: "Good innings from Willey when everyone was throwing their wickets."

Tim Paine "England's batting line is really deep, a hard side to bowl, but our bowlers did a terrific. Let down as a batting group. A lot of those guys have good white-ball skills. They played our spinners much better than we played theirs. We have a few wickets away. Our top four or five didn't get the job done. Maxi has been hitting the ball well in the nets and nice to see him translate that to the middle. Thought it was simple today, our top order didn't get the job done."

Eoin Morgan "Very pleased, particularly with the bowler, thought they did amazingly well. The spinners turned the momentum in our favour. They've been a great combination for us in the middle. Moeen had a few left handers to bowl at. He always gives you options, like Ben Stokes. He's had a great day. The Scotland game kicked us into touch and helped is hone our skills. The big positive from today is that we were way off the mark with our batting but managed to win the game. Was nice to bat with Joe and get the momentum going, but more important we won. We can improve again with the ball and with the bat building partnerships is crucial."

Man of the Match is Moeen Ali "The most important thing is we won and to bowl the way I bowled was fantastic. I back myself in the Powerplay, have bowled with the new ball recently and feel confident with it. You wanted to make the batters hit through the off side. You just try to hold your nerve."

We'll wrap things up there for today. England are 1-0 up and the series now moves to Cardiff on Saturday. We'll see you then but for now from Gnasher, Alan and Miller it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.

Stefan: "On a different note - how good is Stuart Broad's commentary! He's an absolute natural, sounds like he's been doing it for decades. Very sensible conversationalist, insightful and well spoken."
