  1. Thank you and goodbye

    That is it from us this evening. A victory for Australia as the World Cup edges ever closer.

    Make sure you take a read of Jack's match report as well as details of New Zealand's crushing victory against India from The Oval.

    And, if you dare, take a walk down memory lane with some of the calamitous England campaigns of World Cups past.

  2. Post update

    All of the England top order got in today but they all got out.

    That's ultimately what cost England. There was no one there to steer the chase home.

    England would have wanted to win. None of them were bowled out. They all got out. 10 batsmen had a chance to win the game and none of them did it. That will be a talking point in the debrief.

    Joe L: For all the doomsayers and worrymongerers, take note! This was a game without Root or Morgan, and without their steadying influence we still were close.

    Niall Owens: People are questioning England after that defeat They played 13 players and no runs scored or wickets taken count as the warm-ups don't carry ODI status. England aren't going to show their hand less than week away from the opening game

    There is always a concern with Wood’s fitness because he doesn’t seem to stay fit for long. I am sure it was just precautionary. He didn’t look to be limping. I think England will just be wrapping him in cotton wool.

    It looked like Vince was going along nicely today and just as we were waxing lyrical about him he guided one to short third man which put others under pressure and ultimately lost England the game.

    What Smith did, I hope James Vince watched it.

    Smith plundered England's bowling and then went on and on. Four or five England batsmen got in and didn't go on. He has shown a wise old head.

    He didn't score quick enough in my opinion and in real World Cup game I think would have put foot down.

  8. Watch: Archer run out as England fall to defeat

    Here is the decisive wicket as Jofra Archer is run out for one to hand Australia victory.

    It is difficult in games like this there are 22 people with different agendas. The early injury to Wood, the scare for Archer and the injury for Dawson will have meant people took their foot off the gas a little bit. Neither team could really find drive to treat it as a full international which is understandable. It is hard to do.

    Well done Steve Smith. I did say he batted too slow but time showed it was a good innings.

  11. 'Steve Smith played a really impressive knock'

    Australia captain Aaron Finch: "Our fielding was sloppy, it was not the standard we want to set for ourselves. But overall the way we batted was a good effort.

    "It just shows the importance to have that in-batter. I thought Steve Smith played a really impressive knock.

    "The wicket got a bit slower and drier. Nathan Lyon bowled a beautiful spell, great line and length. Overall it was a pretty good wicket, with just enough there for everyone."

    On Jason Behrendorff: "He was impeccable with his new ball bowling, he can move the ball back to right-handers which is a great asset to have. To be able to challenge both edges is a real good quality. He bowled beautifully today, he is getting better and better."

    Chris Podd: Lose a tight unofficial ODI without a couple of key players and the naysayers are out in force. Relax, when it matters we'll be ready.

  13. 'We're disappointed but we're in good shape'

    England captain Jos Buttler: "There's been some good work for some of the bowlers - it was good to see Ben Stokes get overs in, Liam Plunkett took wickets and Tom Curran impressed with the new ball. We're disappointed not to win but we're in good shape."

  14. 'A lot of the guys got something out of it'

    England batsman James Vince: "We’re disappointed not get over the line but it is a warm-up game and a lot of the guys got something out of it. The wicket was a bit two-paced but I managed to get a few runs to my name which was nice."

    On Jos Buttler's innings: "He took all the pressure off us. He hit something like 50 off 30 balls to bring the rate back down to a run a ball. We should have kept a few more wickets in the hutch afterwards but that innings from Jos was outstanding.

    On England's injuries: "I think all the injuries are pretty minor. I don’t know much about them but hopefully they will all be fine."

    It was a glorified practice game but it was an important one for both teams. Lessons should be learnt. England were awful against Nathan Lyon. He bowled 30 dots. England didn't find a way manouvre him around on a wicket that didn't spin viciously. There is work to be done but they wont read too much into it.

    Michael Bairstow: Hopefully our bad game out of the way. Well played Australia. One thing it has confirmed is that Ali is NOT the man for the occasion. Another bad dismissal today. Run a ball needed and he holes out. Step forward Dawson.

  19. Australia win by 12 runs

    Archer run out 0 (Eng 285 all out)

    Jofra Archer clubs his first delivery into the onside. He wants a second run but it was never on and he is caught comfortably out of his ground.

  20. Eng 283-9

    Mayhem!

    Adil Rashid runs a single but he runs into Jofra Archer! Archer then gives up trying to make his ground but the throw misses! Eventually he scrambles in.

    14 from four needed.
