Cricket News sort by England VS Australia 2nd ODI at London - Jul 1, 2012

England have taken a 2-0 lead in the NatWest Series against Australia after defeating the hosts by 6 wickets in the Second ODI at The Oval in London on Sunday. Ravi Bopara and Ian Bell scored fifties as England chased down Australia’s target of 252 comfortably with 26 balls to spare.

Even though Australia’s 15-run loss in the first ODI at Lord’s represented a close contest, with slightly better efforts from the visitors in both the batting and bowling departments, the result of the game could well have been different.
