Commentary

Well played Australia, they deserved that victory - good captaincy from Ponting to apply the squeeze once Pietersen and Bell had got them into a decent position in England's innings. Another victory for Australia, then, the deserved favourites, and that's 18 straight World Cup wins for them. Take that. England, meanwhile, have plenty of work to do in their remaining Super Eight games. Thanks for joining us today and do come back tomorrow when it will be the turn of Ireland and New Zealand to take centre stage.
