    Greg Blewett reflects on a comfortable win for England:
    England deserve that win. They were by far the better team today. It was all Australia the other day but England have fought back well here. Hales and Lumb set the scene with their opening partnership and the best team have won today. Well deserved.

    Over 20 - Australia 168/9 (Johnson 3, Ahmed 3)
    Dernbach is denied a fourth wicket by a no-ball. Ahmed skewed a full toss up in the air and Morgan took the catch at backward point - but the umpire judged the delivery was above waist height. Australia finish on 168-9. England win by 27 runs and the Twenty20 series is shared 1-1.

    Over 19 - Australia 162/9 (Johnson 1, Ahmed 0)
    Finn finishes with 1-30 from his four overs. Last man Ahmed comes out to join Johnson in the middle with Australia needing 34 off the last over, which will be bowled by Dernbach

    Coulter-Nile c Briggs b Finn 13

    Coulter-Nile is undone by a slower-ball bouncer from Finn, who he had hit for consecutive sixes to start the penultimate over. Finn responded with a couple of dots and then gets his man, Briggs taking a simple catch at short fine-leg.

    Over 18 - Australia 150/8 (Johnson 1, Coulter-Nile 1)
    Dernbach is denied a hat-trick by Johnson, who drills a floaty half-volley for a single into the cover. Dernbach finishes off a hostile over with an 88mph bouncer at Johnson.

    Faulkner c Morgan b Dernbach 5

    Two wickets in two balls for Dernbach as Morgan takes an over-the-shoulder catch while diving horizontal at full stretch. Faulkner couldn't control a sharp, short ball.

    Maxwell c Lumb b Dernbach 27

    Maxwell's charge is ended by a full toss that he helps into the hands of Lumb on the square-leg boundary.
