England win by four wickets. Morgan leads the players off, England's good run continues and they have shown Australia they are a mighty different team to the side that got mauled 6-1 last year. At 97 for 4 England looked to be tottering a fraction but Morgan was completely calm, taking his time early on before picking up 14 boundaries on his way to a remarkable century from 85 balls.

Mark Kidger is excited with it all: "How many consecutive ODIs have England won now? Is it 6? When was the last time that we won so many on the bounce? It must be a while ago!" While Ace, sums things up quite nicely: "Every team's finishing batsmen should watch all of Morgan's innings. That's how you finish it off for your team, splendid batsman!"

Brydon will have his bulletin ready shortly so do check that out, and for anyone who could be interested in that other sporting tournament, do check out our sister site ESPNSoccernet.

Eoin Morgan, unsurprising, is named man of the match. That's all from us, good game today and it promises a good series, so I hope you'll join us for the second game at Cardiff on June 24.

good delivery brings an end to an excellent innings from Bresnan, full, swinging in, quick and crashed into the stumps, but Bresnan has really done his job there

well, Morgan trying to reach his hundred in style, clears his front foot out the way and smites it through midwicket for four

Harris to Bresnan, 1 run
good piece of fielding from Harris, and probably saved Morgan's chance of a hundred, it was punched back down the ground and Harris stuck a hand out to keep it to one

Well with only five overs to go, England by default have taken the Batting Powerplay. Ryan Harris is back on.
