drilled down the ground and Australia win by three wickets! They made hard work of a game that they basically had in the bag after 6.2 overs, but they've avoided the whitewash
8.53pm So, that is the end of that. So, the series moves to Perth for the finale ... and the start of a new era with the WACA put to mothballs and 60,000 people anticipated in the city's new purpose-built stadium. Join us there on Sunday for all the fun of the fair.
Mark: "Aus might like to reflect that they have been rescued by Travis Head. Had he got out for 70 instead of staying almost to the end, they would have lost." Quite possibly. But they didn't. Happy 'Straya Day, y'all!
eddie: "Don't understand Morgan's take on their batting here... Bairstow, Hales and Roy all nicked off chasing wide balls just doing a little bit very early in their innings. That doesn't mean there's too much in the pitch, its just juvenile batting." Indeed. I suspect that one will have some legs in the post-match analysis...
Steve Smith "Nice to get over the line, a pretty ordinary [batting] display... It all happened pretty quickly for a moment there, 5 for 8 you'd take any day."
8.59pm Time for some presentations: "We fought really well to get Australia seven-down, but to be five-down after ten overs and no boundaries in the first 15 really shows how much there was in the wicket," says Eoin Morgan, which is an eyebrow-raising take on England's collapse.
"Having broken into the middle order a few times, if we could have reopened a few cracks..."
Pat Cummins is Man of the Match "I think the wicket here has been brilliant for the last couple of years. Josh is about the best bowler in the world in ODIs, lands it on a dime every time with a bit of movement."
8.52pm James: "Given where they were after 6.2 overs (creek and paddle come to mind) England have done pretty well to make a competitive game of this." It goes to show that their competitive spirit is second to none in this format at present. But their headlong stampede to a batting collapse didn't do them much credit. It was rather the same against South Africa at Lord's this summer...
Charles : "Paine relief!" I see what you've done there
Jack: "Will be a disgusting choke job if Australia manage to lose this. They're a soft team. "
spanked out to square leg, can't beat the field, but a comfortable single
swivel-pulled through backward square, and suddenly that pressure, on Australia and Paine himself, has evaporated!
short and wide, that will help no end!
a sharp bouncer, and swayed inside the line
full length, clipped down to long-on and there's a huge mix-up! How on earth did that happen? Cummins turned blind for the second, his partner was going nowhere, and rightly so, as the shy came in, Wood gathered and flicked off the bails, and ... well ... jitters! EDIT: There would have been two if Paine had pushed the first one ... he'll know he was at fault
Chris: "How are you commentating on this and judging the comments in the India SA match?" Clairvoyance, obviously
outside off, and tapped through to third man
slightly wide outside off, Cummins pokes with flat feet
punched hard off the back foot, and well grabbed with one hand at backward point
opens the face to guide a single into the covers
banged in short, a pull off the eyebrows, to backward square
Hello again. Here's Woakes
This match is almost over, but things are just hotting up in Joburg ... arguably too hot, to judge by some of the comments about the state of the pitch ... Right, here's Miller to finish off the dregs
short outside off, 138kph/86mph and Cummins drops the hands
Slip back in for Cummins
round the wicket, dug in short and Paine swivels to send it safely down to fine leg
touch short in the channel and Cummins gets this away down to third man for one
length outside off, 138kph and stabbed towards point
Pat Cummins strolls out. He's got this... Surely?
oh no! Head has pulled to mid-on! Four runs short of a deserved century, he's failed to get on top of the bounce and sent a straightforward catch straight to Morgan. Head heads off with his head bowed in disappointment, but he can hold his, er, head high after guiding the chase
back of a length and tapped back down the track
Time for drinks, with Head closing in on an accomplished hundred and Australia nearing a consolation win
"Hope Head doesn't get dropped for the last game," chirps Prajwal. "White, imo, has to hit the road." Depends on Finch's fitness, I guess. But White hasn't really been able to grab his chance
slanted across, slower delivery from Woakes, Head sits in the crease and glides one more to third man
banged in, tepid bumper and Paine swivels on a pull for one
