So that is it from this game. It may come as a surprise that Australia have dominated all three T20Is so far but they have played some tremendous cricket under David Warner. They have barged into the finals. England, on the other hand, need to win their next game if they want to make it through. They will be playing New Zealand next in Wellington on the 13th of February at 1900 local (0600 GMT). Do join us for that. You can now switch tabs to catch all the updates from the 4th ODI between South Africa and India. Cheers!
Winning skipper, David Warner, says the players are in tremendous form and are playing fearless cricket. Credits the bowlers for their performance. Further adds that all the bowlers have stuck to the plans and delivered. Appreciates D'Arcy Short for the way he has played. Ends by saying he is looking forward to the games in New Zealand.
Man of the Match, Kane Richardson, says he is surprised to be chosen for this award. Praises Marcus Stoinis and Ashton Agar for the way they bowled. States that they are enjoying their cricket and mentions that there is a lot of clarity in the team.
Losing captain, Jos Buttler, says he is disappointed with the performance. Admits nobody could kick on with the bat and they were outplayed by the Australians. Reckons that they have performed way below their ability. Ends by saying they are looking forward to their games in New Zealand.
Not a lot to say about the English bowling tonight. David Willey started off really well but received no support from the rest. Jordon did pick up two wickets but they weren't timely ones. They needed wickets in heaps and they also had to keep the runs down but failed in doing both. Join us for the presentation in a while.
To be honest, the match was set up by the bowlers of Australia and their batsmen did the finishing job. Chasing a target of 138, a total which many tipped to be below-par, the home side did get off to the worst of starts by losing Warner early. However, after that Lynn and Short combined to make full use of the Powerplay before the former departed towards the end of it. The English spinners did come on and bowled a few tight overs but once Glenn Maxwell and D'Arcy Short took them on, it all went awry for the touring team. Aaron Finch towards the end scored an unbeaten 5-ball 20 to score the remaining runs with utmost ease.
3 out of 3 for Australia and they march into the finals of the Tri-Series! Once again it has been a commendable performance from the Men in Yellow. They have made a mockery of the target set in front of them.

SIX! That is a monster hit! He has picked the bones out of this one. WOW! What a hit, a full ball on middle, Finch lines it up and with a straight bat lofts it over the bowler's head for a hugeee one. 6 more needed. Can he finish it in one hit?

    Chris Jordan To Glenn Maxwell OUT!
    OUT! Maxwell goes in an attempt to finish the game quickly. He has been dismissed for the first time in this series. He though falls after yet another good innings. A short ball by Jordon on middle, Maxwell moves his front leg out of the way and tries to pull it. He though is undone by the bounce and gets a top edge towards the keeper who does not make any mistake. 22 needed off 41 balls.
    Chris Jordan is back on.

      Adil Rashid To D'Arcy Short
      NOT OUT! England lose their sole review! A leg spinner down the leg side. Short tries to flick but it goes off something to the keeper who collects it and appeals. The umpire though shakes his head and Buttler after a chat with his bowler takes the review. They go upstairs and replays show it has hit the pad and there is no bat involved.
      Review time! There is an appeal for a caught behind and Short is the man in question. The umpire shakes his head and Buttler takes the review. A review more in hope I would say.

        Tom Curran To Glenn Maxwell
        A full toss, a high one. Close enough to be called a no ball but it isn't. Maxwell is surprised by it as he does not take full toll of it and strokes it down to long on for a run.
