9.50pm So, that's your lot for tonight. It's been a contest to live up to all its billing. Just a shame there was no crowd to lap it up, but we've been royally and remotely entertained. From Miller, Karthik, Chandan and the team, see you on Sunday for the rematch!

9.41pm Time for some presentations.

Aaron Finch: "We knew England would come back hard, as long as the boys keep learning and continue to improve ... lesson learnt. If you can separate the execution and gameplan you can look deeper, but T20 is about taking your options. I'm more critical of Davie and myself for not kicking on. There was plenty of stuff to be positive about, but England are a bloody good side. England were one-dimensional in their middle overs but it was a simple plan and they executed it well."

Eoin Morgan: "Statistically you can never win the game in the first ten overs, you're always chasing in the back end. The bowlers came good in the last overs, Adil taking two important wickets to expose that middle order. It's difficult coming in under lights on a slow wicket.

"Tom Curran has really followed on from a fantastic winter in NZ and SA where he and Chris Jordan led the attack. With responsibility comes opportunity, he was calm in the last few overs."

"Myself and Mo didn't get going, but we show faith in guys at 7 and 8 in Jordan and Curran."

Dawid Malan is Man of the Match for his half-century. "I don't know what the secret is but it's working. I'm slightly surprised, I've enjoyed the challenge, you're always pushing yourself to exceed your expectations and limits. This white-ball team has been the strongest England has ever had and it pushes you. Where I slot in, I don't know, but keep putting performances in..."

"When someone like Jos gets going you think 200 is a par score, but we were one partnership away from 175."

9.40pm Jamie Dow: "I've just looked back after about 30 mins to check the final damage, and ... this is what I felt like when checking the score in session 1 of Trent Bridge 2015 .... there just MUST be something wrong with the cricinfo computer. That obviously CANNOT be the score!"

Noor: "Curran for man of the match? Gave away just 1 eix in his entire 4 overe and there were no fours off of his bowling." A strong candidate, yes. All will be revealed

9.36pm So, where did it all go wrong for Australia. They had it in control right up until Adil Rashid's final delivery, when Glenn Maxwell's smear to cover just opened the door for England. David Warner played an ill-advised stroke when he was strolling to the target, and then the tail just lost their bearings when Mark Wood started cranking it up.

And then, as Shah Safeer says ... "I like this guy Curran, he always holds his nerves and win them games at death overs. Meanwhile Stoinis tried so hard" He's a star in the making in this format. He just loves the chance to be a hero, which in death-over bowling, is half the battle won.

9.33pm Good lord. What have we just witnessed? Business as usual for Jofra Archer in England white-ball cricket, of course. A final-ball thriller, as England come back from the dead to win a game that they had no right to be involved in. Just like his last appearance in coloured clothing...

Andrew Proctor : "About an hour ago I thought England had no chance of winning this and then they go in win it with the last ball awesome " Absolutely baffling. Australia were 98 for 0 with one ball of the 11th over to go!

Curran to Stoinis, 2 runs, low full toss, bunted to deep midwicket, and Tom Curran has snaffled it! A roar of triumph from the bowler. That is extraordinary from England, and Australia. They were dead and buried, but Australia have utterly blown it!

How have Australia got into this pickle? What's Stoinis got now...

Curran to Stoinis, 2 runs, yorker, that's exceptional areas from Curran, swinging in as Stoinis bunts his pull to backward square. Back for two... a four takes us to a Super Over!

Curran to Stoinis, 2 runs, low full toss, and Stoinis had landed it in the crossroads! That went so high there was time for four fielders to converge in the covers, and none could get close! Most importantly though, it's not a boundary...

Curran to Stoinis, no run, another swing and a miss! Stoinis almost flings himself off his feet as he honks into an air-pull over midwicket. Crumbs!

Markib Thapa: "2:15 a.m. here at Nepal. Will my night be filled by a super over???" Tell you what, there's every chance...

Curran to Stoinis, SIX runs, flogged into the stands! Just when it looked like Stoinis was losing this single-handedly, he leans back on the length ball, just a touch of width, and monstered over wide long-off! That's changed things again!

Curran to Stoinis, no run, length ball, hopeless wipe from Stoinis, and he can't connect!
