Commentary

That's it from us today. We've been Andrew Miller and Martin Williamson. Thanks for bearing with us through our technical glitches. Join us then from 0300 GMT on Sunday for the showdown between Australia and New Zealand at Melbourne.

Okay, so Australia had their foot off the pedal and their eyes on bigger contests, but it was still a worthy performance nonetheless. It was set up by Ed Joyce's maiden ODI century, and sealed by some tidy bowling from Liam Plunkett in particular.

Andrew Symonds will not bat, and so England, believe it or not, have achieved the unachievable, and beaten Australia by the hefty margin of 92 runs! That even means a bonus point, to put a teeny bit of pressure on the Kiwis ...

Plunkett to Clark, OUT, Bell has sealed it with a run-out! Pushed on to the back foot, Tait was slow to start running, and Bell swooped from cover to ping down the stumps!

Plunkett to Clark, no run, full on off stump this time, pushed out to cover

Plunkett to Tait, 1 leg bye, turned to fine leg to bring up the 200

Plunkett to Tait, no run, backing away, and squared up as well, all in the same shot. A good old-fashioned tail-end tangle

Plunkett to Tait, no run, pushed onto the back foot again. Played out to cover

END OF OVER:
38 | 12 Runs | AUS: 199/8

  • SR Clark15 (21b)
  • SW Tait11 (7b)
  • MS Panesar10-0-64-1
  • LE Plunkett9-1-24-3

The end of Panesar's spell, and his figures are worse than his efforts deserve. He kept things quiet when Australia were still in the hunt

Panesar to Clark, no run, drawn onto the front foot, and defended into the gully.
