That is the end of our live coverage of this blockbuster. Australia stay on top of Group B with 2 wins. England, on the other hand, will have a lot of work to do. Next up is West Indies vs Uganda before India clash with arch-rivals Pakistan.

For now, I am AkshayaKrishna Polya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentators Deepak Prakash and Ajay Pal Singh, who, alongside our scorer/analyst Zeeshan Naiyer, brought you all the live action of this thrilling fixture. We will meet again in the next match. Until then, cheers!
This is Australia's first win in the T20 World Cup against England since 2007
300-plus aggregate runs in T20 World Cup match without an individual half-century:

366 Australia vs England, Barbados, TODAY

327 South Africa vs New Zealand, Barbados, 2010

311 Ireland vs Oman, Dharamsala, 2016
Mitchell Marsh (Australia Captain): "Yeah, very pleased with that effort. I thought our all-round game was outstanding. It was a good game. 

Yeah, look the way we started in the powerplay was the difference. We learnt our lessons from the previous game. Our boys really set the tone magnificently today. We got an experienced group so it becomes easy to captain. 

Patty (Pat Cummins) was outstanding, it was a tough end to bowl (with short boundary on one side) and our big guns stood up.

It was a pretty good game, just keep learning and keep improving is what we want to do."
Jos Buttler (England Captain): "Yeah, I thought they came out with a lot of intent and played really well, putting us under a lot of pressure straight away. They had a good powerplay, so it was tough to drag it back from there. We fought well, but I thought they bowled really well in that middle phase. We started well and had some good momentum, but they took wickets at crucial times and defended really well. 

(On not using variations in the powerplay) You could change things up a little or maybe do something a bit quicker. I felt there were a couple of balls where perhaps we could have made it a bit tougher for them to score boundaries, making them work harder for it. The conditions were quite extreme with the short side and the wind, so it was challenging. They played well. 

Yeah, he (Archer) bowled really well despite being away from international cricket for a long time. It looks like he hasn't been away at all. 

I thought outside the powerplay was always going to be the challenge. I think we saw that in Australia's innings. As I said, we had a really good start, but credit to Australia for their performance. I thought in that middle phase, Adam Zampa bowled very well, and the seamers were very disciplined, forcing hits to the long side. We played against a really good team today and came second, but everything is laid out for us. We need to dust ourselves down and go again."
Adam Zampa (Player of the Match): "Yeah, we play against England a lot, so we know many of their players. We've trained here before, and we know the dimensions of the ground. We played that game knowing there was a massive breeze today on the long side. 

We saw the way England went about it, particularly through the middle overs, trying to use that side and get them hitting up. It was really difficult to hit boundaries and sixes out there. So, that was our game plan after we batted. 

Yeah, I'm just trying to sum up the conditions of the wickets here. It's one of those places where you don't really know until you start bowling a few balls on it. Then I realized that if I could get the ball into the wicket with some speed, it would stay low and be hard to play cross-batted shots against. 

As I mentioned earlier, some of the wickets around the West Indies are ones you really need to assess on the spot. You can't just look at them and know what's going to happen. So, bowling a few balls is important. 

We've got great depth in our bowling attack. Guys play different roles. You saw today, some guys were bowling to the tough boundary, bowling really defensively, and getting wickets that way as well. So we all play different roles."
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: ADAM ZAMPA
2:07 IST & 16:37 Local Time:  That's it, Australia demolish England by 36 runs to register their second successive win in the tournament. It was a clinical performance from the Aussies and the defending champions had no answers.

Earlier in the match, Australia dominated after being sent into bat by England skipper Jos Buttler. Openers Travis Head and David Warner teed off in the second over and took down Will Jacks, scoring 22 runs off his over.

They added 70 runs for the first wicket before Warner (34) perished on the last delivery of the 5th over. Four balls later, Head (39) also departed.

Glenn Maxwell showed glimpses of what he can do as he somewhat returned to form with a knock of 28 off 25. Australia captain Mitchell Marsh made 35 off 25.

Cameos from Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade helped Australia become the first team to register a total in excess of 200 in this T20 World Cup.

Chris Jordan picked up two wickets while Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid and Liam Livingstone all got one wicket each.

In reply, the English openers came all guns blazing and took the attack to the Australian bowlers. Skipper Buttler and Phil Salt raced to 50 runs in the sixth over.

Adam Zampa came in the 8th over and straightaway provided the breakthrough, removing Salt for 37. In his next over, Zampa sent Buttler back to the pavilion.

The man with the golden arm, Marcus Stoinis then joined the wicket-taking party and removed the dangerous Will Jacks.

Moeen Ali generated some interest in the chase with his cameo of 25 off 15 but it was too little too late for England as they fell 36 runs short of the target.

Adam Zampa and Pat Cummins picked up two wickets apiece while Josh Hazlewood and Stoinis got one wicket each.

Stay tuned as we bring you the post-match presentation and thoughts of both captains on this contest.

19.6 M Stoinis to H Brook
4 FOURRR!!! A streaky way to end the game! It's a boundary for Brook, but Australia don't complain as they defeat their arch-rivals and defending champions by 36 runs to make it 2 wins in 2 games! England have plenty to ponder now! 132.1 kmph. Full and outside the off-stump. Brook stays leg side of the ball and gets down on one knee, throwing his hands at it and slicing it off the outside edge. Goes over short third man for a boundary to finish things off in Barbados!
19.5 M Stoinis to C Jordan
1lb Superb stuff from Hulk! Using his brain more than the muscle power! 112.8 kmph. Short and into the pitch with pace off. Angles it into the batter who swings and misses the pull. Beaten on the inside edge. Gets hit on the body and rolls in the leg side for a leg bye.
19.4 M Stoinis to H Brook
1 Slower ball. Into the pitch from Stoinis. 100.6 kmph. Angles it into the batter backing away down leg. Brook pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a single.
19.3 M Stoinis to C Jordan
1 132.1 kmph. Short of a length outside off. Jordan stays on the back foot and pulls it along the floor to deep mid-wicket for a single.
19.2 M Stoinis to H Brook
1 Back of a length, 128.5 kmph, on the middle stump. Brook backs away and punches it to deep extra cover for a run.
19.1 M Stoinis to H Brook
4 FOURRR!!! Lovely stroke from Harry Brook! 133.5 kmph. Good length on the leg stump. Brook makes room and stays leg side of the ball. Doesn't try to overhit this one as he holds his shape after nailing the lofted drive over extra cover.
19.1 M Stoinis to H Brook
WD WIDE! Over the wicket. Yorker just inside the tramline outside the off-stump. Brook backs away early and has to reach out for it but fails to connect. Given as wide by Nitin Menon! Interesting!
Pat Cummins ends with 2/23. Stoinis will bowl the final over. 50 needed off the final over, and England should look to score as many runs as possible to decrease the losing margin.
