Australia captain Michael Clarke was a relieved man after a century in an 88-run One-Day International (ODI) win over England at Old Trafford played a key role in his first victory over a Test nation in seven months.

Clarke's 105 off just 102 balls was the centrepiece of Australia's 315 for seven in the second ODI at Old Trafford on Sunday against an England side resting several members of their Ashes-winning attack.

"It's better than my last few press conferences," said Clarke. "I think it's probably the one thing that I've emphasised to the Test boys but also the one-day guys, that sometimes it might not look pretty or feel great but if you get over the line and get that winning feeling, it's a nice side of the fence to be on, that's for sure."
