Good start from England, dismissing Warner and Finch early

Smith is out after taking a ball to the yud in training, but Stoinis is a pretty decent replacement.

Aussies look to have a better balance to their side.

England have just the five bowlers (plus Root). Aussie bowling has more depth, although I don't know if Marsh can bowl these days

Really good death bowling from Wood and Archer here, as soon as Australia started to accelerate we began taking regular wickets and have stifled their scoring. I like that we've kept Archer in instead of holding him back for the last over, we're trying to see them off with balls to spare here.

They ended as 294/9


Against most sides that would be a decent score but England have developed a bit of a habit of chasing targets like this in the last few years.

Not tonight. Good from Bairstow, great from Billings. The rest not great.

Not a great powerplay at all, need Morgan and Root to put on a decent partnership.

Good fight back by England as Morgan brings back Archer and Woakes.

However, those two are now bowled out, so itís down to Rash and the Currans to take the final four wickets.

If the Aussies bat out their overs, they should still win

...and the Aussie plan appears to have been devised by Baldrick.

No idea what Carey is trying to achieve
