  • Australia win by 13 runs

    Over 400 runs scored in Hobart but it's Australia who take a 1-0 series lead in this three-match series. Thanks for your company throughout the day, join me again on Friday for the second match from the MCG
  • Over 20 - England 200-9 (Bopara 65 Briggs 0)

    A magnificent 50 from Bopara here, coming off just 23 balls - the fastest-ever by an England player in T20 internationals. Five wides at the start of the over and three more sixes from Bopara off Hazlewood at least ensured England reached 200, 14 runs short of the target
  • Over 19 - England 176-9 (Bopara 46 Briggs 0)

    Despite three boundaries in that penultimate over, two for Bopara and one for Dernbach, England require 38 from the final over
  • Dernbach run out 5 (4)

    Bopara tries to pinch the strike final ball of the 19th over but Dernbach perishes in doing so. Finch fires in the throw from short fine-leg and Wade dislodges the bails with a diving Dernbach short of his ground
  • Over 18 - England 162-8 (Bopara 37 Dernbach 0)

    England have given this a decent go but losing wickets in clusters has really hurt them tonight. 52 runs are required from the final two overs and Bopara is going to have to produce something quite miraculous if England are to win from here
  • Broad bld Coulter-Nile 13 (5)

    Two sixes and out for Broad. Coulter-Nile picks up his fourth wicket when a low full toss grazes the base of leg stump. The end is nigh for England
  • Over 17 - England 155-7 (Bopara 36 Broad 7)

    Broad signals his intent by walking out and sweeping his first ball for six! A quite incredible shot down on one knee from the England captain. Muirhead ends with figures of 1-34 from his four overs - a very impressive debut. England need 59 runs from the last three overs..
  • Bresnan bld Muirhead 11 (14)

    A maiden international wicket for Muirhead! Bresnan went for the big shot, missed the ball, ball hit stumps. Well bowled. England seven down
  • Over 16 - England 144-6 (Bopara 34 Bresnan 9)

    Excellent over for England. Bopara is striking the ball beautifully and he clears the rope twice more to put Henriques under serious pressure. Bopara is walking across his stumps and targeting the leg-side. 16 off the over. 70 needed from the final four
  • Over 15 - England 128-6 (Bopara 20 Bresnan 7)

    A fine over from Muirhead, just five runs conceded. England need to attack the young leggie but he is making Bresnan, in particular, look rather foolish. The Yorkshire all-rounder survives a stumping appeal, just, after some sharp work from Wade behind the stumps
  • Over 14 - England 123-6 (Bopara 17 Bresnan 5)

    Well England need 15 an over and they get the 15 here thanks to some magnificent hitting from Bopara. The Essex man dispatches Hazlewood over midwicket with two lusty blows to have the crowd ducking for cover oncemore. The crowd fielding has been impressive tonight, it must be said
  • Over 13 - England 108-6 (Bopara 4 Bresnan 3)

    Bailey brings back Muirhead with two new England batsmen to bowl at. Singles won't do at this stage but that's all Bopara and Bresnan can muster against the young leg-spinner. 106 more runs required from 42 balls at over 15 an over. Gulp.
  • Over 12 - England 101-6 (Bopara 1 Bresnan 0)

    To have Bresnan in, in the 12th over certainly isn't ideal but that's what England have now. Two wickets in an over for the second time in the innings has put Australia in total command here. Just three runs conceded off the impressive Coulter-Nile
  • Root ct Finch bld Coulter-Nile 32 (24)

    Six down! Root drills Coulter-Nile straight down the ground where Finch is waiting to take a simple catch
  • Buttler ct Muirhead bld Coulter-Nile 20 (14)

    Game over? Buttler gets a ball in the slot outside off stump from Coulter-Nile but can only drive it off the toe straight to deep extra-cover, where Muirhead takes a simple catch
  • Over 11 - England 98-4 (Root 30 Buttler 20)

    A welcome Root boundary rescues the 11th over for England. He just got enough elevation to beat Bailey on the edge of the circle at midwicket. Seven off it
  • Over 10 - England 91-4 (Root 25 Buttler 18)

    After taking 2-5 in his first over, Henriques is brought back down to earth in his second, conceding 15. Root does the damage this time, pulling a short, slower ball over square-leg for a rare Root six and following that up with a one-bounce four back down the ground. 123 required from the final 10 overs
  • Over 9 - England 77-4 (Root 14 Buttler 15)

    A boundary apiece for Buttler and Root off Maxwell keeps England in touch. Buttler strikes sweetly down the ground for a one-bounce four, Root clubs a full toss through midwicket. Poor bowling in truth from the 'Million Dollar Man' and it gifts England some much-needed momentum
  • Over 8 - England 66-4 (Root 8 Buttler 10)

    Debutant leg-spinner James Muirhead comes into the attack for his first bowl for Australia. It's been a sharp rise to prominence for the 20-year-old, who has played just two first-class matches for Victoria. Buttler puts him under immediate pressure with a slog-sweep over midwicket for six. Cracking strike and a fine catch in the crowd. 11 off Muirhead's opening over
  • Over 7 - England 55-4 (Root 4 Buttler 3)

    Big pressure on new man Buttler, who joins Root in the middle with England already needing 12 an over for victory. He makes a confident start with three runs from his first two balls faced
