So the Twenty20 has gone the way of Australia's Ashes campaign - total and utter dominance from the home side, abject humiliation for the visitors. The victory makes it played five, won three for Australia in this form of the game. And now they've put down a marker for the one-day series with England and New Zealand. The positives for England are that Vaughan's comeback was a pretty decent one for him and the sprightly youngster Nixon, 36, looks a real find. The teams line up now to shake hands, Flintoff trying to suppress a smile at the sheer hopelessness of it all. But the real smiles are on the faces of the Australian players - they may have dismissed this as a bit of fun, but tonight they had a lot of fun. Thanks for joining us today - do join us again for the one-day series which gets underway on Friday, when these two teams meet again, this time at the MCG.
