So Australia's reign as world No.1 lasted 48 hours although they can claim back again tomorrow if India lose to New Zealand.
The difference between the two teams tonight was Jos Buttler. His 43-ball cameo at the end of England's pushed their total into the territory that constantly kept Australia's innings under stress. That, coupled with the fact that Broad, Bresnan and Stokes out-bowled their Australian counterparts, meant the Australian batsmen could find no fluency.
Aaron Finch was clearly a standout for Australia but not another batsman from the home side could support him.
George Bailey defends his decision to bowl first but says the Australian bowlers struggled to control the white ball.
Man of the match is Ben Stokes. Excellent performance from him, but I still would have given it to Buttler.
That's it for tonight. We will back on Australian Day for the final ODI of the summer at the Adelaide Oval.
FINALLY! England have won, Pattinson skies this on but this time it is the man with the gloves who takes the catch. Buttler scored 71 runs from 43 balls with five catches, Stokes scored 70 runs and took four wickets. You pick the man of the match.
Hot spot says he hit it.
Coulter-Nile looks like he is out caught behind, but only the faintest of half shouts from Buttler and Bresnan engenders no reaction from the umpire.
Pattinson skies one now and two fieldsmen charge towards it put a desperate Gary Ballance just cannot quite get there.Back to top
Nathan Coulter-Nile skies a high shot. Ben Stokes and England have about five minutes to savour their first win of the tour but then Stokes drops a sitter.
WICKET! Christian goes again but all he can do is getting a thickish edge down to deep third man where Gary Ballance takes the catch. It's the dreaded 10th wicket partnership for England.
There's a lot of swinging but not much hitting. Christian finally gets on and lobs it over midwicket for a boundary. That will alleviate the run rate pressure for all of about two balls.
And Johnson has just been cleaned bowled to boot. Stokes claims the wicket. He has scored 71 and taken four wickets does he edge Jos Buttler for man of the match, his innings was the difference in my opinion.
The run rate is almost two runs a ball. Christian and Johnson can both hit it but neither possessed the calculated fury of Faulkner, Buttler or Morgan to overcome this target. England have got this won.Back to top
Johnson can be easy to tie up as long as you don't give him width but Broad produces a wide full toss and Johnson produces the boundary shot through the covers.
WICKET and its FAULKNER! Stokes gives him a send off. The allrounder tries to smack it through the offside but just top edges it to Buttler. Surely this is England's night.
Faulkner has hit just one run from nine balls.
Tom Moody is scathing towards Glenn Maxwell. Describing his shot as that of a No.10 or 11 and generally commenting that he does not know how to find a rhythm of an innings. I think he is trying to say he needs to grow up.
WICKET! Ben Stokes is on for England and Maxwell swings across the line and edges it to Buttler. Dangerman James Faulkner is in.Back to top
That's what Christian has done. He has smoked that over long on. Jordan produces a length ball on middle and leg and Christian just tees off.
The required run rate is over 9 an over now. Maxwell seems unable to settle down. Surely he should just take a couple of deep breaths, choose his hitting zones and make England pay if they stray.
When Maxwell stands still and calm he is so much better. Bresnan strays on the legside and Maxwell flicks it past fine leg for four.
The first boundary of the powerplay as Maxwell calmly flicks Jordan off his hip for four. The next shot is anything but calm. He charges Jordan, takes a woolly swish and misses it altogether.
Dan Christian is the new batsman. He can give it a hit too.Back to top
