    OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Jhye Richardson. Off cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Roy. Taken in the deep, fittingly it is Roy who takes the catch after his impeccable century earlier in the day. England seal victory by 38 runs and go 2-0 up in the series.

    It wasn't the most ideal of starts for England this morning after Eoin Morgan was ruled out with a back spasm and they lost the toss. However, early fireworks from Jonny Bairstow (42) set the tone, followed by some brutal hitting from Jason Roy (120) and Jos Buttler (91). Roy stroked the ball to all parts of the ground, going up through the gears smoothly in his fifth ODI century. Shaun Marsh was obviously watching carefully as he adopted a similar approach during the chase, holding things together for Australia with a masterful century of his own. No other Australian could pass fifty though, and ultimately that cost them dearly after having England under pressure with ten overs remaining. Liam Plunkett nipped in with four wickets, including the massive scalp of Marsh just as the left-hander was looking intent on snatching victory. Next the series moves to Trent Bridge on Tuesday, with the tourists needing a win to keep things alive.

    Adil Rashid to Jhye Richardson. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 46.4

    OUT! Caught. Adil Rashid to Andrew Tye. Slider length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Billings. Rashid has a smile back on his face now as Billings settles underneath this one to give the leggie his third wicket. Tye had decided to swing hard at everything but this one is horribly miscued into the deep. England on the verge of victory in Cardiff.

    Adil Rashid to Andrew Tye. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Hales.

  • 46.2

    FOUR! Adil Rashid to Andrew Tye. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Oh dear, Wood has lost sight of this with the sun setting in the background so it bounces away for four. Rashid is not amused in the slightest.

    Liam Plunkett to Jhye Richardson. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to point for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 45.4

    OUT! Bowled. Liam Plunkett to Shaun Marsh. Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, missed to. Timber, Plunkett lets out a roar as he takes the massive wicket of Marsh. That could be the moment that all but seals the victory for the hosts, and by the reaction of the England players you can tell they were under the pump. Plunkett rolls his fingers across this delivery and Marsh looks to give himself room but can't connect as the ball smashes into the sticks.

    Liam Plunkett to Andrew Tye. Off cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Roy.

  • 45.2

    OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Tim Paine. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Rashid. Helped on it's way but straight into the grateful hands of Rashid at fine leg. Moeen will be breathing a sigh of relief, he goes up to the bowler with a big smile on his face. Paine actually made decent contact with that but he picked out the fielder perfectly.

  • 45.1

    Liam Plunkett to Tim Paine. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to backward point for 2 runs, dropped catch by Ali. Spilled by Moeen, that could prove to be a huge moment in the match. He did all the hard work in getting underneath it but he couldn't hold on as it dropped over his shoulder.

    SIX! Mark Wood to Shaun Marsh. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. That's gone flat as a pancake and hard as a rock, soaring over the ropes at long off for a maximum. Marsh must be seeing it like a beach ball at this stage. Worrying signs for the hosts.

    Mark Wood to Tim Paine. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Willey.

    FOUR! Mark Wood to Tim Paine. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Paine takes on the short ball and nails his pull between the men in the deep. This is starting to get really interesting as Australia mount their late charge for victory.
