England vs Australia 2nd ODI Video Highlights - ENG vs AUS 2013
Video Highlights of England vs Australia 2nd ODI Match Played on 8th September 2013. Michael Clarke led from the front with a century as Australia struck first in the one-day series against England with a convincing 88-run win in Manchester on Sunday.
The Australian captain scored 105, his eighth ODI hundred, and received strong support from his deputy George Bailey (82 from 67 balls) as the tourists posted 7-315 from their 50 overs after losing the toss.
Needing a record run chase to win, England were all out for 227 with wicketkeeper Jos Buttler offering most resistance with 75 from 65 balls.
The result at Old Trafford handed Australia a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series after game one in Leeds was washed out.
After a frustrating tour so far, which has featured a 3-0 Ashes series loss and a winless Champions Trophy campaign, Clarke's side is out to end a three-month campaign on a high.
While Australia's batting proved its weakness in the Test series, the top order has looked strong in the limited-overs format, albeit against an England side missing the core of its Ashes squad.
England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and sent the tourists in on a flat wicket, with Clarke claiming he would have chosen to bat anyway.
