Neither team can quite certainly claim that they've had a great day. Australia more so than England. Nevertheless, both teams will draw plenty of positives and expect them to put in a bigger and better show with the bat come Saturday; the 16th of June. Do remember to tune in for that. Thanks for keeping us entertained with your witty, informative comments. Keep 'em coming. Until next time, this is Raju Peethala wishing goodbye on behalf of Vineet Anantharaman, Nikhil Jadhav and our scorer Shashikant Singh.
Moeen Ali, Man of the Match: Always great. The most important thing is that we won the game. You need to understand the mindset of the batters a little bit. To be consistent and try and mix the pace and the length is the key. It's always difficult when you bowl against some top class players, but you need to stick to your strengths. Obviously we won the game and that is the most important thing. One format to concentrate at the moment and happy with the way things are going.
Eoin Morgan, captain of England: Very pleased. The two spinners turned the game in our favour. They have done it many times in the past and it is no different today. He (Moeen Ali) always gives you an option. He is a bit like Ben Stokes, you throw him in any situation and he will come out trumps. The Scotland game kicked us into touch and helped us hone our skills. The big positive from today is that we were way off the mark with our batting but managed to win the game. Nice to bat with Joe today and get some momentum going. It's more important that we won. He's (Root) a genius and I see him and there's nothing unachievable with him in the side. We would have liked to press on a bit more with the ball but really happy with the way things have gone.
Tim Paine, captain of Australia: Certainly difficult. They bat very deep and I thought our bowlers bowled well. All the guys have played a bit of Big Bash and they've got good white ball skills. We couldn't time well against their spinners and I thought our pacers bowled well. Our top four didn't quite do the job for us. Maxi has been hitting the ball well in the nets and it is nice to see him translate that in this game. Our top 4-5 didn't get the job done and when you're defending such a total you won't win many games.
19:55 local: Not enough runs in the bank to cause any late jitters. After losing three wickets inside 8 overs, England's Test and ODI captain got together to engineer a game-sealing 115-run stand which eventually put paid to hopes of an Aussie comeback. Morgan, who had been copping a lot of flak of late, should be credited for the way he paced the chase and his innings. Never wasted a single opportunity to stamp his authority and to his delight, he found great ally in Joe Root who steadied the ship before causing a bit of a stumble towards the end. Willey, Moeen Ali and Plunkett did their bit to put the finishing touches. Stanlake, by far, has been the best Aussie bowler on show. The rest....um, not quite!!
Michael Neser [7.0-1-36-2] is back into the attack
Kane Richardson [8.0-0-49-1] is back into the attack
Liam Plunkett, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Neser to Moeen Ali, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Andrew Tye [7.0-0-35-2] is back into the attack
Michael Neser [4.0-1-17-1] is back into the attack
Just 33 needed
Kane Richardson loses the cherry before finishing his delivery stride. Mo Ali sees the funny side of it
Time for drinks! Unless England invite a miraculous collapse, this should be a stroll. Remember Stanlake has been bowled out and there's plenty of time left in the game. Plunkett and Adil Rashid can handle the bat alright
Kane Richardson [6.0-0-38-1] is back into the attack
A forward short leg for Willey
David Willey, left handed bat, comes to the crease
Stanlake to Root, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Stanlake crashes the base of leg peg with a low full toss, but that won't count as Root wasn't in position to face up. Pulls out at the last minute
Moeen Ali, left handed bat, comes to the crease
Andrew Tye to Buttler, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Jos Buttler, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Andrew Tye to Eoin Morgan, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!
Andrew Tye [3.0-0-20-0] is back into the attack
Billy Stanlake [7.0-1-32-1] is back into the attack
Ashton Agar [3.0-0-15-0] is back into the attack
Kane Richardson [3.0-0-19-1] is back into the attack
Billy Stanlake [5.0-1-25-1] is back into the attack
Glenn Maxwell, right-arm off break, comes into the attack
Drinks! The skipper alongside Root has done well to rebuild the innings for England. At one point the hosts were in trouble with their top three batters back in the pavilion but this partnership has brought them back in the game, in fact England are the favorites to win from hereon.
Appeal for a run out taken upstairs. Morgan is well inside though... NOT OUT displays the giant screen
Ashton Agar, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack
Andrew Tye, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

Michael Neser, right-arm medium, comes into the attack
Alex Hales, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Stanlake to Roy, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!
Roy and Bairstow are at the crease. Roy is on strike. Stanlake will open the attack
