Cricket: England to chase 250 tonight against Australia

Australia have set England 250 to win in the one day international in Brisbane tonight.

While almost every Australian batsman got a start, the lack of a big innings hurt Australia and restricted the total to 249, with Australia losing all 10 batsman in the 50th and final over.

The exception on the Australian scorecard was Michael Clarke, who showed a glimmer of his former self in scoring a paitent 54.

England bowler Chris Woakes starred with the ball, dismissing six Australian batsman in only his second one day international match.

England's innings starts in 40 minutes.
