9.22pm: That's a wrap from us for today. Thanks for joining me, Sreshth, Chandan and Ranjith throughout, and see you again on Sunday for the second ODI. Alan Gardner's report will appear here shortly, and keep an eye on the site for George Dobell's musings from the ground. Cheers!

Josh Hazlewood gets player of the match ahead of Glenn Maxwell: "The batting did well to get what we got. We started really well, there were a few partnerships along the way but we stuck at it. I was happy to get eight [overs] out at the start. We made the most of it. With Roy, Bairstow, they really leave nothing in the sheds. We were lucky to get a couple early. There are a few things to work on but everything's going really well. Sometimes we rest at the end of the Test series, so it's good to play when we're fresh. Hopefully I'll play a few in the months to come. [Recovery?] That's probably the challenge, coming off not much cricket, a few T20s and a few practice games. We'll rest up tomorrow and come out again the day after."

Aaron Finch: "It was nice to win and start off the series really well. There were a couple of little cracks that Jofra and Chris Woakes exploited. It was a new-ball wicket - it was toughest to bat then. [Marsh/Maxwell] It was a great partnership. They paced it really well. They played two really smart, mature innings and I'm really happy for them two to get some runs. On that wicket, I thought we were a big chance if we bowled well early. I thought that was a really good frontline attack for that wicket, but we know how destructive England can be when they get it right."

Eoin Morgan: "The game probably slipped away from us in the first 10-12 overs with the bat. We did a reasonable job with the ball. We thought we could chase it down if we established a few partnerships. I thought they played well. You can always be greedy and want more, but an area of our game we're trying to improve is to take wickets early and we did that. [Billings] Sam's opportunities over the last four years have been limited and sporadic. To come in, show hunger and desire in his training, contribute when Joe Denly was injured in the Ireland series and get his maiden one-day hundred here is outstanding. When Ben Stokes is missing it leaves a big hole."

Lidwin: "Dhoni would have been proud of billings to take it so deep." -- Too deep, if anything!

Muhammad Salman: "With all due respect to Billings, he does not suit the England playing style. Either he plays in the top 4 or does not because he cant hit sixes and that is what England style of play demands." -- I'm sure he just hit two of them and 14 fours in a superb rearguard maiden ton after coming in at 57 for 4 and taking England close to a remarkable win? Maybe I dreamed it...

Plenty of you rightly pointed out how valuable Starc's cameo - 19 off 12 balls - ended up being for Australia. If Woakes, Rashid or Archer had managed that, it could have been very different.

9.10pm: Thanks for your company all evening but do wait for word from the two captains and also who the Player of the Match is. There are four contenders from Australia side and atleast one from, England. Here's Matt Roller to wrap the proceedings.

Billings needs to hit four sixes and a four. Or five sixes. Or three sixes, two fours and a double. Mitch Marsh to bowl.
