there it is! Eoin Morgan wins the game and makes his hundred! What an innings! Full ball crashed down the ground for four, Morgan screams as he brings up the landmark and punches the air
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!"
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.
gentle start for Yardy, full toss on leg stump, clipped down to fine leg for a single to bring Morgan back on strike
Michael Yardy is the new man.
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
oh! Almost had it there, he cut it firmly but straight to third man, Morgan moves to 99
well, Morgan trying to reach his hundred in style, clears his front foot out the way and smites it through midwicket for four
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.
oops, Bresnan misreads the script and steals a single and the strike
Bresnan doing the right thing as far as Morgan is concerned, blocking into the off side
this time it's blocked into the covers and Morgan rushes through for a single, he's just one hit away now
better shot this time, worked round to square leg and he takes a couple
perhaps Morgan is going to try and hit his way to a hundred, here he saunters down the wicket and swishes at thin air
good from Hopes, drifting it into Bresnan, who drops it into the off side and scampers through for a single to bring Morgan back on strike
Morgan on the reverse-sweep, will he make his hundred? He times the shot excellently but picks out the fielder at point
follows up the two boundaries with a little nudge into the leg side for a single
tossed up and a big heave from Bresnan, fetched it from well outside off but timed it excellently, gets four to midwicket
nicely bowled again and Bresnan defends
Bresnan this time is defending watchfully into the off side
floated well up outside off, Hauritz really searching for a wicket, but Bresnan thumps it cleanly past extra cover for four more
sees out the over with a careful defence
Morgan on fire here, really top innings this, hint of width and Morgan cut superbly, just behind point and it raced away for another boundary
