48.2 Tom Curran to Tim Paine

OUT! Bowled. Tom Curran to Tim Paine. Reverse Swing-In length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed. Tom Curran is the hero, nerves of steel from the young man to rattle the stumps once again. England have pulled off a remarkable victory by just 12 runs and Curran finishes with a maiden five wicket haul. The new Optus Stadium in Perth has been treated to a thrilling match to kickstart it's life as an international sports venue. The balance see-sawed back and forth through twists and turns, but in the end the tourists came away with the victory to take the series 4-1. With Marcus Stoinis at the crease, it seemed as though Australia were coasting towards the target as he relished his new role up the order. His wicket sparked a bit of a collapse for the hosts though, with the tourists able to extract lavish reverse-swing through Tom Curran. The Surrey quick bowler cleaned up the lower order, taking the final two wickets to claim his maiden international five wicket haul in an outstanding display of skill and nerve. He scoops the player of the match award, with Joe Root getting player of the series. That equals Australia's heaviest ODI series defeat on home soil, a massive statement by England as they prove themselves to be a juggernaut in this format before the World Cup next year. Next up for these sides is a T20I Tri-Series also involving New Zealand, starting with a Trans-Tasman affair on Saturday in Sydney.
