So that is it from this game! Warm up games don't end here as we have two for you on the 26th of May. Pakistan are taking on Bangladesh in Cardiff. The other game sees West Indies take on South Africa in Bristol. Both the games begin at 1030 local (0930 GMT). Till then take care and goodbye!

Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says their fielding was sloppy but overall, how they batted and bowled was really good. Credits the way Steven Smith played. States they had their plans with the ball and it came off. Reckons the wicket got slower and Lyon bowled brilliantly. Further adds overall it was a good day and he is pleased with how they played. Tells Jason Behrendorff was brilliant with the new ball, he can bring it back in to the right-handers and he when it does not swing he can challenge the outside edge which is very good. Ends by saying they were losing wickets at regular intervals and that is something they have to work on.

England skipper, Jos Buttler, says the bowlers were good, good to see Plunkett taking wickets. Mentions he is disappointed he did not win it but feels despite the injuries they are in good shape. States their waiting for results on Wood's injury. Credits the way Smith played on tough track.

James Vince who is up for an interview says he is disappointed to not get over the line. Reckons the wicket was two paced and it was not coming onto the bat nicely. Credits the way Buttler played and mentions he took all the pressure off. Appreciates the efforts from the bowlers, he feels the total should have been changed but they lacked partnerships. Ends by saying there are a few injury worries but he hopes they are fine.

The Australian bowling was really nice! You know you have done a good job if you defend a target below 300 under this England batting line-up. Everybody had a wicket at least to their name but Lyon was the pick as he not only was economical but also took a wicket.

After Smith's magnificent ton, Australia put up a competitive total on the board on a tricky wicket and England did not get off to the best possible starts. They lost Bairstow early and Roy too did not make an impact. Vince however, held one end up and stroked a well crafted fifty. However, it was Jos Buttler's innings which put England on top again. Once he fell though, the English batters never got going. Vince too departed and then Australia not only managed to choke the runs but also took wickets regularly due to which the task was too much for England.

What an outstanding game! We mentioned, it is a clash between two favourites of the tournament and it lived up to that expectation. Yes, it was only a warm up game but don't think any team played it as such.

M Stoinis to J Archer, RUN OUT! That is the end of the game! AUSTRALIA WIN BY 12 RUNS! A short ball on middle, Archer mistimes his pull towards deep mid-wicket. They take one, go for the second. Maxwell runs in, picks the ball up and fires it to the keeper who whips the bails off. Archer is well short. Customary handshakes taking place.

M Stoinis to A Rashid, Direct hit and it would have been all over! Short and on middle, Rashid looks to pull but gets an underedge towards the keeper. He goes for a run. Archer has to go for it. He gives up but luckily for him, Carey misses his shy at this end. 14 needed in 4. Need a biggie now do England.

Jofra Archer is the last man in for England.

M Stoinis to L Plunkett, OUT! That has been crunched but straight to Maxwell! Plunkett, probably England's last hope, is walking back. He comes down the track and smashes this short ball but does not get the desired elevation. He holes out to deep mid-wicket where Maxwell takes it. 15 in 5.

M Stoinis to L Plunkett, OUT! Woakes is short and Australia can continue celebrating. Big wicket this. Plunkett looks to paddle but misses to get hit near the box. The ball rolls back towards the bowler. Woakes is off for a run but has to turn back. Stoinis picks the ball up and hits bull's eye at the non-striker's end. An appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. One replay was enough to see Woakes has to take the long walk back. Game once again in the favor of Australia.

A direct hit and is Woakes short? Australia do feel so. This is a big moment in the game.

M Stoinis to L Plunkett, EDGED and DROPPED! Length ball outside off, Plunkett looks to drive through off side but gets a thick edge to the keeper. Cary dives to his right gets a glove but could not hold on. Eventually a single results .

This can probably be the last pair for England. Wood is certainly not going to bat and Dawson is also doubtful as he injured his finger in the first innings.

M Stoinis to L Plunkett, Length ball outside off, Plunkett looks to runs down to third man but fails to lay bat on ball.
