The best reactions, analysis and inquests that we saw on Twitter during and immediately after Australia's dramatic five-run win over England in Adelaide.

England looked to be on course for a win in the fifth and final One-Day International having been set 218 at the Adelaide Oval.

However, despite Joe Root making 55, they lost their way dramatically, losing seven wickets for 58 runs to be bowled out for 212.

For many, that brought back memories of the Champions Trophy final when they did a similar thing against India, losing by the same margin.

People were not afraid to hold back, with Ravi Bopara coming in for plenty of criticism for his innings but his dismissal created most reaction of all.

The debate over whether he was actually out, stumped - almost by accident - by Matthew Wade, is probably still going on.

Undoubtedly it was a huge moment in the match, but as many point out below, this was a game that England really should have won.

Instead, it turned into an Australia Day to remember as Michael Clarke's team followed up an impressive win the Australia Women earlier on.
