England vs. Australia: Scorecard, Video Highlights, Recap from 5th ODI

Australia ended a long and frustrating summer in England by winning the fifth and final ODI by 49 runs at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. With victory, they claimed the series 2-1.

Winning the toss and batting first, the tourists made a demanding score of 298 all out—though they owed a huge debt to Shane Watson and his coruscating 143.

England—giving a first cap to bowler Chris Jordan after Steven Finn suffered a niggle—fought back well, but the task was too much for their batsmen after a shaky start.

Here is the story of how the match unfolded:

 

Australia innings

Watson was the hero as Australia piled on 298 in their 50 overs.

The all-rounder, who came in at one wicket down when Philip Hughes departed for two, played with force and brutality to bludgeon 143 from just 107 balls.

Watson owed much to Michael Clarke, who beat a back injury to participate and scored an even-paced 75 from 76 deliveries.

But that aside, there was little in the way of partnerships to pull the Australia innings together.

After a brief rain delay early in the innings, Ben Stokes picked up the wickets of Aaron Finch and Matthew Wade in successive deliveries.

He went on to pick up three more for ODI best figures of 5-61, while debutant Jordan emerged with a creditable return of 3-51, even if Boyd Rankin (1-26) was probably the pick of the seamers.

Despite the collapse—Australia slumped from 244-5 to 298 all out—the score looked very competitive on a chilly September evening in England.

 

England innings

England's start began with a horrible runout between Kevin Pietersen and Michael Carberry—for the second time this series—with KP walking back for a duck.

And in truth it did not get a great deal better until it was too late, with Carberry (30), Joe Root (21) and Luke Wright (0) falling to leave England in trouble at 68-4.

The required run rate kept pushing upwards and skipper Eoin Morgan fell, stumped off the bowling of Adam Voges, to leave England with little hope before a stand worth 92 runs between Ravi Bopara and Jos Buttler threatened to turn it around.

Both looked in good touch, playing themselves in before launching an attack during the powerplay overs. But the task was a steep one and the moment Buttler fell, clean bowled by James Faulkner for 42, the innings lost its way.

Bopara was next, well caught in the covers for 62, leaving Stokes and Jordan to try to pull off the impossible.

They could not and England fell to 249 all out.
