That is it from all of us! Now the attention shifts to the Indian T20 League which begins in UAE from 19th September. Till then, take care and cheers!

Aaron Finch, Australian skipper, says he is happy with the team's performance. Adds that Maxwell played his natural game and did well. Mentions there was action from the first ball of the match. Finch also says that the partnership between Carey and Maxwell was terrific. Mentions it is difficult to stop Maxwell on his day.

Eoin Morgan, England skipper, says it has been difficult to digest this loss. Adds that they did well to recover from 0-2 and post 300 on the board. Mentions Carey and Maxwell played very well and took the match away from us. Morgan also says that guys have done well to perform and Billings has been quite exceptional. Mentions Malan did well in the T20Is and that has strengthened their squad also.

Glenn Maxwell is named the Man of the Match and Man of the Series. He starts by saying that he is happy with his performance. Adds that he calculated his innings and that paid off. Mentions he picked the right balls to go big and that worked. Maxwell also says that against fast bowlers he has tried to use a different approach.

Earlier in the day, after opting to bat, England had a nightmarish start as they lost a couple of wickets in the first over itself bowled by Starc with the score reading nought. Then the pair of Morgan and Bairstow brought their innings on track with a 67-run stand but the advent of Adam Zampa meant the end of road for the English skipper. After that England lost Jos Buttler cheaply but then came a 114-run stand between Jonny Bairstow and Sam Billings which changed the course of the game for the hosts. Though both departed in quick succession, Bairstow scored a ton and Billings a half ton. The one player that proppelled England past 300 runs was Chris Woakes who smashed a 39-ball 53 to see the home side cross the 300 run mark. There were many good performances with the ball as well as bat so who gets the player of the match as well the series. Stay tuned for the presentations.

England with the ball started brilliantly as they have been throughout the series. Woakes picked up a couple of early wickets but today Archer was missing his target as he failed to compliment Chris Woakes. He failed to contain the runs as well. Mark Wood coming in place of Sam Curran today was bowling at a good pace but lacked the direction as he was either too short or too full. Adil Rashid was taken for a hit by the Maxwell-Carey partnership as he could not arrest the run flow. Tom Curran was good but not the best as he too was taken for a hit. The only silver lining for England in the bowling was Joe Root's 8 overs which yielded 46 runs and also got 2 wickets, one of which was of David Warner. Otherwise, it was mediocre bowling from England today. In the fielding too, they were a bit sloppy giving away easy singles and doubles. Not the kind of bowling that was expected from them after what was seen from them in the 2nd ODI.

Chasing a total in excess of 300, Australia started decently but soon the demons of throwing away starts struck them as they lost wickets regularly. From 21/0, they soon went onto be 73/5 inside 20 overs. Just when it looked like that Australia have thrown the game away and will fold up quickly there emerged two power hitters for Australia in the form of Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey. The duo started going about their business, rotating the strike and hitting the bad balls to the fence and respecting the good ones. And once both of them got a reprieve, they opened up targetting the short boundary on one side to their liking. Maxwell especially liked to go over the short boundary as Carey was happy playing second fiddle to the aggressive Glenn. Soon Australia were back on track and in line with the run chase. In the process, the duo got to their respective milestones of scoring their individual 100. Both departed soon after getting to their respective tons with Australia still needing 10 off the last over. Out came the tall man, Mitchell Starc who clubbed Adil Rashid for a six and then ended the innings with a boundary with a couple of balls remaining.

AUSTRALIA SNATCH VICTORY FROM THE JAWS OF DEFEAT! Finally, they have crossed their biggest hurdle. Finally, they have beaten the demons of losing from the point of victory. What a game we have had. An even contest with the bat as well as the ball. Australia are a team who are known to come hard at their opposition during deciders and crunch games and they have lived up to the expectations.

OUT! RUN OUT! What have you done Marnus! Australia in all sorts of trouble here. Saved a couple of balls earlier but not this time. Carey pushes this delivery towards point. Labuschagne calls for a single and hurries towards the danger end as Sam Billings there gets to the ball and releases the throw towards Buttler who collects it and whips the bails off. Marnus though knows that he is a gonner. The umpire take it upstairs and the replays show that Labuschagne was miles outside the crease when the bails lit up. Poor cricket from Marnus there. Australia wanted him to stay.

16.4

Flatter and around off, pushed to point by Carey.

16.3

OHH...THAT WAS CLOSE! Tossed up around off, Marnus tucks it towards mid-wicket and calls for a quick run. Jason Roy there runs from mid on, takes the ball and releases it towards the bowler's end but his throw is a lose one as Root too fails to collect it as Marnus makes it safe with the dive. A single taken. Had Roy hit it directly, then Labuschagne would have gone by a mile.

DRINKS! England have picked 4 wickets and put Australia under pressure. Joe Root has picked 2 wickets. On the other hand, Australia need a big partnership and Labuschagne and Carey have to play a big innings to win the decider.

14.5

Alex Carey is the new man in.

12.4

OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Root has his second! He might have failed with the bat but he is contributing with the ball. Marsh struggles against spin and hence Root was bowling. Tossed up around off, Marsh looks to flick it to the leg side but manages an inside edge that hits the pads and lobs behind to the keeper where Buttler takes it without any fuss. England on top.

10.5

OUT! BOWLED! Warner departs, not to Archer but to part timer Root! The gamble from Eoin Morgan pays off. Root bowls quicker and around middle and off, he opens up Warner completely as the ball spins past his push to hit the top of off pole. Australia in deep waters.
