That's it from us today. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do come back for Valkerie Baynes' post-match piece(s). I am Srinidhi Ramanujam, signing off on behalf of scorer K Vairavan and my co-commentators Al Muthu and Hemant Brar. Take care!

Knight, the England captain: "We talked about winning the series yesterday and it feels good to do it today. Pitch was different to what we thought. Usually spin dominates but it was seam today. Have a lot of belief in the side. I thought Australia's score was below par, it was a decent deck. I think probably that was our worst fielding performance. Credit to the way we went about the target. On different days, different people are performing. Really appreciate the support from the crowd. Still a long way to go. One game at a time."

Healy, the Australia captain: "They just played a really good innings, we didn't execute as much as we wanted to do. It's the T20 format, when you're not on, you can be pounced upon by teams. And I thought England were solid throughout the series. We have to fix a few things before going into the ODI series. Schedule is hectic, we just want to rest and focus on the next game."

Wyatt, the Player of the Series: "Yeah, it's always nice to contribute to series win. Just keep things simple and react. Conditions were slightly different but just keep calm and play. We have got a couple of days off, heading to Wimbledon tomorrow, should be a nice day."

Capsey, the Player of the Match: "It's been unbelievable. To have my family here was amazing. We played to our strengths and put them under pressure. The backing I got from the start. The way I play, sometimes it will come off, and sometimes it won't. I've been working hard in the nets."

10.08pm: What a game to clinch the series and stay alive in the Ashes! England win the T20I series 2-1 but Australia still lead the multi-format series 4-6, with six more points on offer.

Australia started the game slowly, losing a few wickets upfront but Mooney, Perry and Gardner chipped in with 30+ scores each before Harris hit a 15-ball 25 to lift the visitors to 155 for 7. Sciver-Brunt starred with two wickets for England. It seemed like a competitive total before rain halted the play. The teams lost 6 overs to rain with the revised target at 119. Wyatt started off briskly and despite England losing her and Dunkley inside five overs, Capsey's stunning 46 kept England in the game. But they were playing against Australia. The visitors bounced back with three quick wickets at the end to take the game down to the wire. With two needed off five, it was the newcomer Gibson who took England home.
