    Unbelievable hitting, from the BBC feed 'Eoin Morgan only had eight off his first nine balls. He hit 42 off his next 12'

    42 off 12???
    Amazing!

    436/3, 5 overs left. Record will go this over I think.

    Watched the highlights show last night without knowing the score, some tremendous hitting on display, England's spinners bowled quite nicely too. A tremendous day of sport (WC, Royal Ascot, Murray @ Queens and the cricket).

    Going to Old Trafford on Sunday for game 5. When the tickets were bought I thought it could be a critical match, at this rate it could be England homing in on a series whitewash!

    Another fine batting display from England, comfortably chasing down 310 to achieve their 2nd highest ODI run chase.

    Scorcher of a day in Manchester, Australia batting first, motoring on nicely on 57 after six overs, no loss.

    Heading for a tight finish. Have you been in on the beachball shenanigans?

    No, but when I was at Headingley last summer we were bang in the middle of the roistiness.

    Made a conscious decision this time to avoid it. It’s fun but it can tip over - we had a bunch of scouse lads next to us who were throwing the TMS earpieces at the police and stewards. Safe to say they didn’t last long.

    Left the cricket, now in the pub for the second half of Japan-Senegal.

    SkyGo not working, less than happy but half-pished so I can deal with it

    Could be a few more pumpings on the cards if England continue to play so badly against the Indian spinners as they did last night.

    Better batting against the spinners helps England tie the series.

    I think England might be in trouble in the Tests.

    They responded to the spin but all it takes is Kuldeep to alter his delivery and they are back to square one.

    Perhaps more importantly, India have a genuine all-round pace attack, with options as back-up and a fair bit of strength at bat.

    Great performance by India to win the game and clinch the T20 series.

    England didn't do badly but India just showed their class in the closing stages. I think they scored 35 runs in the eighteenth and nineteenth overs to ease themselves through.

    Rohit Sharma excelled with a century from 56 balls, more than ably supported to victory by Hardik Pandya with 33 from 14 deliveries. He's a very exciting young talent.

    I'm going to the first Test at Edgbaston for a couple of days at the start of August and can't wait. This Indian side are very exciting with bat and ball.

    Plaudits to Chris Jordan for England - two very good catches, one off his own bowling and he had relatively tidy bowling figures too.

    Much better from England today although the 2nd half of the Indian innings was a bit of a head scratcher to say the least, I wonder what that was all about?

    Felt like England managed to put the burners on towards the end of their innings, whereas India failed - Pandya and Yadav falling quickly and Dhoni just not sparkling.

    For the Tests I'm still finding it hard to see past the tourists though. They've got a different range of strengths in the pace attack and have spin. They will probably find joy in English conditions in a way that SAF, Windies or Australians find a bit more tricky. They also have batting, not least of all one of , if not the best batsman in the world.

    England have still quite to resolve their line-up, especially with batting, though restoring Jennings and moving Root to three and Bairstow to five is a necessary step. Still a couple of issues to resolve and also around the bowling - Anderson and Broad have been titans and no doubt England will look for yet another summer from them but their time is limited. The alternatives and the complements are up for grabs - both Currans have impressed with their enthusiasm though neither fits the bill as an innings-changer in the way that Anderson and Broad do. And then the spinners - Moeen's star has dipped but he bowls and bats significantly better at home than he does abroad and he also averages against India overall better than his career averages.

    Should be a good series.
