hit on the full, given lbw! Four for Zampa. Dawson reviews but it looked pretty straight. Sliding in from over the wicket and pops him on the front pad around ankle height, only has to be clipping - and it is! Umpire's call on leg stump, and Australia have wrapped this one up with room to spare
9.50pm: Here's Adam Zampa, talking to BT Sport: "It's a series win, that's important to us against a good England side. Vince and Billings today, looked like it was going to be tough but we got a couple of big wickets. It was a hard wicket to start on. It was going to swing early, we felt the wicket was up and down. Knew reverse swing would come in later, and we made it tough for them. We're disappointed with how the World Cup went, England deserved to win but it's nice to get this series."
Mitchell Starc was named Player of the Match, meanwhile, but BT elected not to show the presentations from the SCG - so you'll just have to imagine how Josh Hazlewood described his captaincy debut (or better yet, stick around on the site and wait for Gnasher to file). His report will be in the slot here shortly, and we'll be back for the culmination of England's tour down under, live from the MCG next week. Thanks for your comments, from myself, Alex and Raghav, it's goodbye. Bye!
9.38pm: A hefty margin of victory in the end, belying the fact England seemed well on top of the requirement when James Vince and Sam Billings were going along. Victory puts Australia 2-0 up with one game left in the series, in Melbourne on Tuesday. We suggested at halfway that their 280, underpinned by 94 from Steven Smith, looked a challenging total, and it proved to be the case
Here's Matt Leonard: "Can confirm, that while this series defeat is slightly annoying, the overriding emotion is 'Meh, they're probably still groggy from last Sunday, whose decision was this series anyway?'"
googly, I think, defended into the covers
tossed up, 85kph and pushed into the covers coming forwards
flighted on off, blocked
quicker, sprayed down the leg side as Dawson sweeps. Carey can't gather and they pinch a couple
floated up outside off, Dawson reverses the hands on a dab fine that runs away for two
Last over for Zampa. England's last-wicket pair need 78 from 72 to keep the series alive
hits a length, 144kph on the stumps and Rashid tucks to short midwicket
fired in full at 141kph/88mph, dealt with capably in defence
slammed into the deck, tailing away outside off as Rashid wafts and misses
DS: "ROFL at the excuses being submitted by the whining poms." I'm sure they'll be moping off after this to rewatch highlights of a certain match played at the MCG last weekend...
length ball, steered firmly but straight to backward point
Starc continuing round the wicket, 145kph/90mph on a length outside off. Blocked comfortably enough
dug in short of a length, 141kph/88mph and defended coming across
"Thanks for the klaxon, just found out Rashid has more first class hundreds at a (very slightly) higher average than Jos Buttler." Now that's the stat, Liam
pushed through flatter wide of the stumps and Rashid helicopters a cut away into the deep for one
flighted, 85kph around off stump. Rashid is forward to smother it
tossed up straight, Daws plants the front dog and batters a sweep out towards deep midwicket for three. Brings up the England 200
tucked towards square leg
goes back and dabs towards backward point
tossed up and defended coming forward... Zampa goes for up lbw. Was there some inside edge? Sam Nogajski not interested, and there's no review. Looks like it actually hit him on the glove/forearm
Zampa, looking to finish things
full from round the wicket, flicked away wristily through midwicket to get him off the mark
Out comes Adil Rashid *10 f/c hundreds klaxon*
dragged on, no kicking this away! Back of a length from over the wicket, gets big and cramps Willey for room as he attempts to punch off the back foot. Comes off the inside edge and then off the body into the stumps... Willey tosses his bat in frustration, and this really might just be that for England's hopes
"Let's not get carried away with what England C achieved against Pakistan," muses Robert. "That was at home with a team full of experienced county players in mid season. This is an experienced side but it's away against the Aussies best 11 with half a team who have just won a WC and half rusty. It would be a challenge for the England first XI."
