That's it from Edgbaston, England underway with a win and now have a few days to take stock, their next game comes on Thursday against Sri Lanka in Cardiff. A day before that fixture, Australia play their next game, that's against New Zealand back in Birmingham again. Tomorrow it's down to Cardiff for the second match in Group A, Sri Lanka and New Zealand getting underway at 10.30 BST so tune in then but from Gnasher, Monty and myself, Alex Winter, it's goodbye for now.

Here's the Presentation. "We were a partnership short with the bat we couldn't get anything going," stand-in losing captain George Bailey says. "From 1 for 170 we did a really job to pull it back wit the ball, it looked a very good batting deck. But if it's going to be that dry then we probably need a spinner."

"It was a good performances all-round, the pitch got slower and lower after 30 overs," Alastair Cook said. "We should have got around 300 from where we were 180 for 2 but i thought 270 was good enough. When they were 30 off 10 I thought Jimmy and Broady were exceptional."

Man of the Match goes to Ian Bell for his top-score of the day, 91 in 115 balls. He led England's innings very well.

For Australia, that was a very disappointing second innings. They started very quietly and then lost wickets, the worst of the worst. Thereafter only George Bailey got stuck in and made a score and by the time James Faulkner knocked it around down the order it was too late. It looked an out-of-form order lacking in quality. They have a real job on their hands to give Sri Lanka and New Zealand a game. Saying that, they were facing an exceptionally disciplined bowling attack, England gave them nothing.

Fine performance with the ball from England and they have won by 48 runs, a very comfortable victory in the end. They would have been nervous after a sluggish effort with the bat that saw them fall 20 or 30 runs short of what many though was par in good batting conditions. England lost their power hitters cheaply and Ravi Bopara was needed to prop up their total. But it was more than good enough because with the ball, England have strangled Australia, they never got going and were never really in the chase.
