Commentary

Australia won by 88 runs | England Vs Australia Live Score, 2nd ODI

That's all we have for you from here, do join us back for the 3rd ODI on Wednesday. Until then good bye.....
Clarke: 'I am happy with the way our batters responded and our bowlers did extremely well to defend. I am happy with my form and hopefully will play in the next three matches. The conditions are good for batting and we have some talented guys in our side. Bailey played really well and he hit some lusty blows today. Mitch was excellent today and was swinging the ball at a great pace'.
Michael Clarke is the Man of the Match for his hundred today.
Morgan: 'Very disappointing to lose, but we will learn from the mistakes today and hopefully we'll do well in the next game. Chasing over 300 was a tough ask and we didn't bowl well today. We have lot of bowling options, but today was an off day for us. KP and Buttler batted well and I am also happy with my performance.'
A clinical performance from Australia has helped them win this one quite easily. This is also their first win in an ODI against England since 2011. Put into bat, they posted a huge total on the board, thanks to Clarke's first ODI ton against England. Their bowlers then responded well with some accurate bowling. Mitch Johnson was at his best today and consistently bowled at over 93 MPH to trouble the English batsmen. Only Pietersen, Morgan and Buttler excelled with the bat, with rest of the batsmen falling to some poor strokes.
