Clarke says he will miss the fourth match in Perth but will be back for Australia Day in Adelaide. With George Bailey under an injury cloud perhaps Brad Haddin will skipper an ODI side for the first time having already done the job at T20 level.
That's it, Mark Nicholas has paid Australia the ultimate compliment stating they played perfect one-day cricket today. It's hard to argue, but as tonight showed, perfect does not always equal interesting.
That's it for tonight. Join me again on Friday as Australia seek to inflict more pain on England in Perth.
Michael Clarke has the enviable task of talking up another win. He credits the bowlers for the victory praising both spinners Xavier Doherty and Glenn Maxwell.
I genuinely feel sorry for Alastair Cook. It must be hard work fronting up and explaining away another defeat. He is doing his best to end this interview quickly but Mark Nicholas always has another question.
Man of the match is David Warner.
He scored 72 but most of the interview is about that run out of Ian Bell and the hush, hush celebration.
Shaun Marsh finishes the job and with a lofted four over midwicket.

Shaun Marsh gets in on the act glancing Chris Jordan to fine leg.
Haddin has hit Broad out of the attack. Chris Jordan is on.
Now Haddin slogs sweeps Bresnan for a one-bounce four.
That's the best shot of the lot. Haddin backs away and then dabs the ball through the narrow gap between backward point and short third man. All class.
Haddin goes again. He clears the front leg and hoicks Stuart Broad over midwicket.Back to top
That's 18 runs so far from two powerplay overs as Haddin once again throws his hands at a wide ball from Bresnan and picks up four through the covers.
Surely England can find a better captain than cook, there's a whole world out there to pick one from #AUSvENG— Craig fitzgerald (@Skunkie_C) January 19, 2014
This loss will be England's ninth successive international defeat since the final one-dayer of Australia's tour of England. Their worst run of defeats is 10 which happened both in 1993 and 2001.
Alastair Cook responds by moving third man up into the circle and pushing mid-on back so Haddin backs away and lofts it over backward point for a boundary.
Brad Haddin is aiming for the quick finish. He launches a cross bat swipe from Stuart Broad's bowling for six over wide mid-n.Back to top
Australia take the batting powerplay at the latest allowable point ... any chance you can score 44 runs from these 30 balls?
I don't understand this game. Brad Haddin appeals to the umpire that England had one too many fielders outside the circle. Play is stopped for match that is seemingly is drifting towards victory.
The vision from Channel Nine shows he was right. Did the umpires check upstairs, I don't know, but if they did than clearly they cannot count. If they didn't, than why was play held up fo so long?
Shaun Marsh has thankfully heard my plea and cuts Tredwell to the fence - less than 50 to go,
Ben Stokes is back on and he is trying to bowl a yorker but just delivers a full toss on the toes of Shaun Marsh who sends the ball racing away to the boundary. Australia need less than 60 win in just under 20 overs - please make it quick.Back to top
