Commentary

This has been a different Australia today to the one which lost to Zimbabwe the other day. And, ominously for the rest of the teams in this tournament, they look like their old serves: dominant and clinical. Hayden finishes with 67 not out; he remained unruffled throughout. Emphatic is the word, and Ponting and his men have certainly started to take this tournament seriously. So, England and Australia through to the Super Eights, then, and Zimbabwe are out - on an inferior run rate.

Ponting states the obvious: "We're a fair bit happier today. Today was a pretty comprehensive win. We did the job with the bat today." Collingwood ends how he started - by admitting there are areas that England need to improve on, particularly the batting. True enough. Bracken picks up the Man of the Match award for an intelligent, controlled spell of bowling that helped to knock over England.

Thanks for joining us today. Next up will be India's tussle with Pakistan so do switch over to the live scorecard for that match coming up shortly.

From me, Jenny Thompson and Martin Williamson (with Andrew Miller on bulletin duty), it's goodbye.
