  • Australia lead series 3-0

    Another humiliating day Down Under for England. Australia clinch the ODI series with two matches and 60 deliveries to spare after a crushing win in Sydney. It's their eighth victory over their old rivals this winter and England are in danger of another whitewash defeat. Alastair Cook's men were never in it today in truth after posting a below-par 243-9 in their 50 overs. Australia showed the way to bat on this pitch, Warner and Marsh both scoring 71 as the hosts eased to victory with plenty to spare. Thanks for your company, stay here for all the reaction from the SCG.
  • Australia win by seven wickets

    Marsh finishes on 71 not out and Haddin unbeaten on 37. Australia win in style!
  • Over 39 - Australia 234-3 (Marsh 62, Haddin 36)

    Start the car... Talking of Bumble, 'an absolute doddle' he's described this as for Australia. It has been as comprehensive as it gets in one-day cricket. What has happened to England in these last few months? 10 runs needed from 11 overs
  • Over 38 - Australia 227-3 (Marsh 60, Haddin 31)

    Sarcastic chants of 'Broady Broady' from the home fans as Broad's nightmare game continues. Haddin takes him for two further boundaries, one clubbed over midwicket, the other steered through gully. Broad's figures now read 8-0-61-0 to go with an innings of one and a couple of misfields. 17 needed...
  • Over 37 - Australia 218-3 (Marsh 59, Haddin 21)

    Haddin is enjoying himself now and playing with plenty of freedom with the finishing line in sight. A decent comeback over from Bresnan is ruined when the Aussie gloveman flays his final delivery over the cover fielders for a boundary. 26 more required
  • Over 36 - Australia 212-3 (Marsh 58, Haddin 16)

    Broad's miserable comeback match continues as Haddin takes him to task. After clearing his leg and planting him for six towards the old pavilion, Haddin then goes inside out and skews him over third man (who had just been brought up) for four more. 12 off the over and only 32 more needed for a 3-0 series lead
  • Over 35 - Australia 200-3 (Marsh 57, Haddin 7)

    Australia are in no rush whatsoever to put this final nail in the England coffin. Tredwell has bowled well, to be fair, and the third of three singles brings up the Australia 200
  • Over 34 - Australia 197-3 (Marsh 55, Haddin 6)

    Bopara is angling the ball in nicely from wide of the crease and so nearly finds Haddin's edge/off stump. The delivery is so good it even outfoxes Buttler, who concedes two byes. Three runs off the over in total. The target is down to 47
  • Over 33 - Australia 194-3 (Marsh 54, Haddin 4)

    It's a cruel, cruel game at times! Three balls after being dropped by Cook at slip, I say dropped, Cook came up so early at slip that the ball hit his ankle without him getting a hand on it, Marsh reaches 50. A crisp cut shot for four off Tredwell got him to the landmark and he adds three more before the over is out
  • Over 32 - Australia 187-3 (Marsh 47, Haddin 4)

    A gift from Stokes at the start of his latest spell, offering up a floaty full toss on Marsh's legs, a left-hander's dream, and Marsh clips it away for four with the minimum of fuss. A poor over from Stokes costs nine and Australia head into drinks needing just 57 more runs with seven wickets and 18 overs remaining
  • Over 31 - Australia 178-3 (Marsh 39, Haddin 4)

    Just a Marsh single off Bopara, who continues to look England's most threatening bowler. That, in itself, speaks volumes...
  • Over 30 - Australia 177-3 (Marsh 38, Haddin 4)

    Marsh has seamlessly slotted in at No.3 for Australia in place of Watson. He passed 50 in Brisbane and is on course to do the same again here. Everything Australia has done this summer has turned to gold (and green)
  • Over 29 - Australia 173-3 (Marsh 37, Haddin 1)

    Bopara seems to have a knack of picking up wickets and this one has at least given England a sniff of producing something special, if still highly unlikely. England's nemesis Brad Haddin is in at No.5
  • Clarke bld Bopara 34

    Ravi nips one through the gate and crashes the ball into Clarke's off stump. The comeback starts here??
  • Over 28 - Australia 169-2 (Marsh 36, Clarke 32)

    A couple of half chances and a couple of boundaries for Australia, who are motoring to victory here. Bell and Jordan both let one-handed chances slip through their grasp as Clarke helps himself to boundaries down and square of the wicket. Anyone fancy a bowl?
  • Over 27 - Australia 157-2 (Marsh 32, Clarke 24)

    Nasser has called for Cook to be more aggressive with his field-settings as this game drifts away from England. Four singles off Tredwell - 86 more required for a series win
  • Over 26 - Australia 154-2 (Marsh 31, Clarke 22)

    A double change from Cook as Jordan returns for a second spell. Marsh is very strong down the ground and, after drilling a drive straight to mid-off he then goes over the top, ending the over with a boundary
  • Over 25 - Australia 149-2 (Marsh 27, Clarke 21)

    Tredwell is denied a maiden when Marsh guides his final ball fine to third man for two. A decent over from the Kent offie with no reward. Australia in control at the halfway stage of their innings
  • Over 24 - Australia 147-2 (Marsh 25, Clarke 21)

    'Rusty' and 'lethargic' are the best words I can use to describe Broad's bowling today. The merits of a rest are always questioned in international cricket but I actually think he deserved one after bowling pretty well in the Ashes series. His six overs have gone for 40 runs today and he has rarely looked like taking a wicket. Australia require 97 more for victory
  • Over 23 - Australia 139-2 (Marsh 23, Clarke 16)

    An expensive over from Stokes, who is trying everything to pick up another scalp. Clarke drives imperiously down the ground to start the over with a boundary and then ends it with the same outcome when top-edging a pull fine to the rope. An 'at this stage' comparison: After 23 overs England were 91-3
