Buttler, Bairstow and Hales - that's one helluva combination; add Morgan and Root to that list. The Aussies had to face their wrath all through the tour. The Australians return home without a single win. The services of Smith and Warner were certainly missed, but they'll have to find a way to get out of this losing streak. England, on the other hand, with sky-high confidence, will host India. That's going to be a crackerjack. It's goodbye from Abhinand Raghavendran, Vineet Anantharaman, Nikhil Jadhav and Shashikant Singh.

Rashid, Man of the Match: It's been okay so far. The bowlers bowled exceptionally well throughout the summer. Hardwork at the nets always pays off. Looking to develop new skills; that's gone well so far. That's part of the game - mixing it up. Even when Finchy was going well, I had to back myself and that's what I did. It's crucial for any team to have a captain like Morgan. He gives the confidence to the bowlers. That's the decision (retirement from the longest format) I made - no regrets.

21:45 Local Time, 20:45 GMT, 02:15 IST: A comprehensive win for the hosts after scoring a mammoth 221. Short and Maxwell were nipped out in the powerplay. Then it was Australia's regular nemesis - the spin twins. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid reduced the Australians to 72/5 in the ninth over. Just as the match was heading towards a boring one-sided encounter, skipper Aaron Finch upped the ante and kept his team in the hunt. But that enthralling knock was put off by the leg-spinner Rashid - who finished with figures reading 4-0-27-3! The pacers provided the finishing touches to wrap up the match.

Plunkett to Stanlake, out Caught by Eoin Morgan!! It's over. The clean sweep is done! 6-0, it is! A hit-the-deck-hard back of a length delivery and Stanlake was late to swing his bat at it.

Jordan to Agar, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!
