Ravi Bopara hit 82 from 85 balls as England beat Australia by six wickets in the second one-day international on Sunday to take a 2-0 series lead.

Ian Bell scored 75 including a six and six fours as England coasted home with 26 balls to spare at The Oval.

Part-time spinner Michael Clarke was the unlikely pick of Australia’s bowlers with 1-13 but the tourists’ 251-7 never looked like being enough.

Shane Watson was Australia’s top-scorer with 66, George Bailey made 65 and Tim Bresnan had England’s best bowling figures with 2-50.
