Australia v. England

Australia v England ODI Series 2014

Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney: Sunday 19 January 2014 14:20 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: England won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Australia win by 7 wickets

Australia 1st innings

End of Over 40 (Power Play Batting) (10 runs)
Bowler: Chris Jordan
Australia: 244-3 (rr 6.10)

39.6
Four Runs
FOUR! Jordan to Marsh. Length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Australia win by 7 wickets as Marsh mows it through mid-wicket for four, and that concludes another one-sided display. England's batting let them down as they finished about 50 runs light, and the Australian batsmen took to the run chase with confidence and style. Cook's team look low and morale and their bowlers look out of ideas as Australia punish them once again, winning this one with ten overs to spare. Morgan and Bell looked in decent touch but the problem once again was the lack of conversions after all the top six made it to 15. Coulter-Nile and Christian bowled well for Australia (helped by some stunning catches) and some impressive knocks - from David Warner especially - helped the Australian juggernaut continue. Clarke celebrates another series win and puts today's win down primarily to his team's fielding, of which his catch to dismiss Stokes was a pearler. Man of the match is awarded to David Warner, a persistent thorn in England's side, and if the last match suggested that England were on course for a return to winning ways, today's showing highlighted the difference in performance levels that has been evident for the last two months.
