Australia won by 7 wkts | Australia Vs England Live Score, 3rd ODI

So when will England beat Australia on this tour? It's been close to two months. Can they do it on Friday at Perth? Join us back to find out more on that day at 11:20 Local Time. Take care and goodbye.
Clarke: 'I think the bowlers did a fantastic job on that surface and then the batters did their part as well. It is pretty good to bat on when you come in first but is was a touch two paced. We are fielding well and that's a real positive. David was outstanding, his knock was brilliant. I think the selectors are going to give me Perth off but I will be back for the Australia Day at Adelaide.'
Cook: 'The first ten overs we played alright but you can't afford to lose that many wickets. Everyone got 20s and 30s but someone needed a big score. Bresnan batted well to get us past 240. We've got to try and win a game now. Every time we play here it gives us some information, it will be useful for the youngsters ahead of the World Cup.'
Warner: 'It was good to run Bell out. All the work with Mike Young is paying off. It's been fantastic that I am able to show my true potential and I hope it continues. Credit to the groundstaff, they prepared a good pitch, the new ball was coming on nicely but once the ball gets older, it was a little difficult. Thanks to all the Sydney crowd for turning up.'
David Warner is the Man of the Match
In reply, Finch and Warner started off pretty well before the former threw his wicket away. Warner batted sensibly since then and shared a good stand with Marsh. Stokes incuded a false stroke from Warner to dismiss him after a fine fifty. Clarke joined Marsh and looked very positive but Bopara got on to go through his defences. Marsh and Haddin stayed calm and ensured a comfortable win for the hosts.
Marsh and Haddin are jubiliant. England players shake hands with them. It's been another clinical performance from the Aussies. England actually started the game off very well with skipper Cook batting aggressively. But when Clarke took some pace off the ball, the visitors started to lose their way. England recovered for a while in the form of Morgan and Bopara but with the Aussies getting 4 wickets for 21 runs at one stage, England were reduced to 198/8. Bresnan pushed the score past 240 with some lust blows and gave something for the bowlers to work with.
