End of a very exciting, enthralling, nail-biting series! The T20Is were great to watch and the ODIs were even better! England won the former series and it is the Aussies who took away the 50-over format. They though deserved to win this one. They outplayed England in the first game, should have won the second game, however, they came out of the grave in the last to clinch it. That's Australia, the current Australia we should say. Too many unpredictable players but many match-winners and we saw two in the form of Maxwell and Carey in the 3rd ODI. We now bid adieu. Till next time, take care and stay safe!

Aaron Finch, the Aussie skipper, says that it was a terrific game of cricket today, as compared to the other two games. He says that Carey played well along with Maxwell. Finch states that Maxy is there in the team to play the way he does. On the batting, Finch says that the partnership between Carey and Maxwell was fantastic, it took the game right down to the wire but ensured that Australia would romp home in the end. Lauds his team for the consistency. He says that it is important to develop a balance between the good days and the bad days and adds that he is happy to win this game. Thanks the ECB for putting together such a wonderful series. Says that it has been tough for everyone, including the organizers but lauds their amazing effort for making this, the Pakistan and the Ireland series happen. Is happy that he could entertain the fans to some cricket in such tough times.

Eoin Morgan, the English captain, says that Adil Rashid did well to bring the game back into England's favour but that the hosts could not hold on to the same momentum. Adds that Curran and Bairstow played well today. Lauds Maxwell and Carey for the way they played. Says that it has been an outstanding series and thanks Australia for coming over. On the white ball summer, Morgan believes that the experiment of growing larger has played off well, with the likes of Sam Billings and Dawid Malan. He says that a lot of guys are traveling to the Indian T20 League and therefore this amount of game time should help, even though, he personally feels it is little.

Glenn Maxwell is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his exceptional hundred. He has also been named as the PLAYER OF THE SERIES. Says that the situation demanded much when he walked into the crease. He says that Australia also needed runs even though wickets had fallen and he was also looking to provide that. The plan, Maxwell says, was to target the shorter boundary often. He always had his eye on the same, especially against Rashid. Another key to success, Maxwell states, was to know which bowler to go after and which one to not go after. He says the atmosphere in the camp was chill before the match, even though this was a decider.

Stay tuned as the presentation ceremony is due shortly...

This match was all about comebacks! First it was England who fought back hard after they were 4 down for below 100. Bairstow's ton, Woakes and Billings' half ton took them to a total which was slightly above par. After that, it was Australia's turn who had their backs against the walls but Maxwell and Carey roared back and overshadowed the English batters' performance to take their side home.

How disappointed will England be with this game? They had it in their bag after the first 20 overs. However, that no ball, which got Carey, changed everything. That is the kind of luck Carey, a batter who was struggling for runs needed. He cashed in on the life he got and made the English bowlers pay. The hosts' bowlers had no answers to the clever batting shown by him and Maxwell's counter-attacking knock.

The Aussies were reeling at 73 for 5. Nobody, absolutely NOBODY sitting around me gave them a chance of winning this game but they have pulled a rabbit out of the hat. A partnership of above 200 with both scoring tons took Australia within touching distance before there was another twist. Both of them fell in quick succession with Australia needing 10 from the last over. It was Rashid, a leg spinner, against two bowling all-rounders, Starc and Cummins. One hit was all they needed and Starc nailed it. Sensible batting after that took them over the line, giving them one of their most memorable wins.

Jubilation in the Australian camp! Rightly so, they have won the series and in what way! Wow! If you're watching this game, just a take moment, stand and applaud the effort by Maxwell and Carey! What an innings by the two, what a partnership by the two. They have have won the game together for the Aussies when they were down and out.

4 49.4
Adil Rashid to Mitchell Starc

FOUR! Mitchell Starc, with a straight six and now a sweep for four, sees the visitors home! What a way to cap off the series and the summer! Adil tosses this on middle, Starc sweeps this to deep backward square leg and gets a boundary. A roar of joy as soon as he hit it as he knew it was racing away to the fence. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 3 WICKETS!
