Cricinfo staff

England 316 (Godleman 55, Brown 55, Westfield 54) beat Malaysia 159 (Aruddin 71, Miller 4-27)

England bounced back from their 16-run defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka as they again efficiently disposed of Malaysia. A powerful batting display carried them to 316 before Andrew Miller took 4 for 27 as Malaysia were rolled for 159.

England's impressive total was built around half-centuries from Billy Godleman (55), Karl Brown (55) and Mervyn Westfield, who hit two sixes in his 54. Westfield added 75 for the seventh wicket with Alex Blake to boost the total beyond 300.

Malaysia didn't come close to making a game of it as Miller continued his encouraging form by removing the top order. Blake and Liam Dawson grabbed two strikes apiece, but at least Anwar Aruddin's 71 gave Malaysia something to smile about. England have now won two out of three matches in the triangular series.
