50th Over
So the series is now level at one match apiece - the teams head for Southampton for the deciding game on Monday. Thanks for staying with us to the bitter end tonight and make sure you join us for all the action on Monday night. Good night from Cardiff!
So a highly entertaining game there - England doing enough in the end to get home with just three balls to spate. Jos Buttler a well deserved Man of the Match award.
Over 49.3: Johnson to Buttler, FOUR, full, hammered like a rocket past the bowler to the fence and that's it - England home by 3 wickets and the series is level at one apiece
Over 49.2: Johnson to Buttler, no run, smashes a full ball to mid on, finds Watson, no run!
Over 49.1: Johnson to Buttler, SIX, on the pads and set unleashes a massive blow and it goes all the way at deep mid wicket, game all but over as scores are now level!
49th Over
Over 48.6: McKay to Buttler, leg bye, short, aims a slog over mid wicket, takes him on the body and they pinch a leg bye - 7 to get off the last over. ENG 7/221 (Buttler 55, Tredwell 1)
Over 48.5: McKay to Tredwell, one run, makes room, slashes hard and gets an underedge into the covers - 8 off 7 now
Over 48.4: McKay to Tredwell, no run, goes back and defends to the bowler, good over this, but one boundary can change everything here
Over 48.3: McKay to Tredwell, no run, advances and tries to crack a short one away but fails to make contact - 9 off 9 now
Over 48.2: McKay to Tredwell, no run, full, drives past the bowlers left hand to mid on - 9 off 10 for England
WICKET - England 7/219, Stokes b McKay 25 (29 balls, 3 fours) McKay 4/38 - 9 to win from 11 balls
Over 48.1: McKay to Stokes, no run, OUT, comes forward and is bowled between bat and pad, loose batting and McKay has four!!
48th Over
Over 47.6: Johnson to Buttler, two runs, bouncer again, hooks away behind square leg for a couple, just 9 to win now for England. ENG 6/219 (Buttler 55, Stokes 25)
Over 47.5: Johnson to Buttler, wide, bouncer, really drags it down and Wade needs a step ladder to stop it, does well to save 4 more wides
Over 47.5: Johnson to Stokes, one run, drives to mid on, Faulkner has a throw and hits, the get an overthrow but Buttler is nearly run out in the process, panic from both teams there
Over 47.4: Johnson to Stokes, no run, comes forward and defends towards mid on
Over 47.3: Johnson to Stokes, FOUR, short, goes for the ball and gets it away over mid on - just 13 needed now
Over 47.2: Johnson to Stokes, no run, goes back and defends a shortish ball to point
Over 47.1: Johnson to Buttler, one run, short, cracked away off the back foot to deep point, not a bad result for Australia - 17 off 17 now required
