44.2 Marcus Stoinis to Chris Woakes

FOUR! Marcus Stoinis to Chris Woakes. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Finished in style, Woakes plonks this over the top and gets a big hug from Root. England seal victory by 4 wickets and go 2-0 up in the series. Once again England have mastered a runchase to canter home with plenty of overs to spare. There was no standout innings on this occasion, instead a workmanlike display from six of their top eight as they made light work of Australia's total. Mitchell Starc (59-4) sent some nerves through the away dressing room with a fired up spell, but Joe Root (46*) and Chris Woakes (39*) remained composed until the end. The tourists' bowling display deserves plenty of credit, they were able to stifle the hosts through proactive captaincy, canny spin bowling and clever changes of pace. It leaves Steve Smith's men with a tough ask to haul themselves back into the series, they'll have the chance to do so in two days time in Sydney.

44.1 Marcus Stoinis to Chris Woakes

FOUR! Marcus Stoinis to Chris Woakes. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Glorious, Woakes leans back to open up the offside and then carves this with sublime timing. The end is nigh in Brisbane.
