Australia Makes it 5-0 in ODI Series

Australia won the fifth of the seven-match ODI series against England yesterday. A captain’s knock of 126 runs off 109 balls from Ricky Ponting helped Australia make a successful chase for a 300-run winning target. England scored 299 runs batting first thanks to Eoin Morgan’s 41-ball 58, Denly’s 45, Strauss’ 35, Prior’s 37 and Shah’s 31 runs. In the absence of Brett Lee, Australian bowlers did not look impressive. Johnson, Watson and Hauritz took 2 wickets each.

Australia had a very good start thanks to two openers Watson and Paine. However, Ponting and Clarke contributed 133 runs for the third wicket and that was instrumental behind Australian victory. Clarke scored a well-played 52 off 64 balls. On his way to 126, Ponting showed some of his masterstrokes, hitting 14 boundaries and 3 over-boundaries. In the end, Cameron White’s quick fire 24 and Johnson’s 12-ball 18 guided Australia to victory.
