Shane Watson scored a sensational century as Australia beat England by 49 runs in the 5th and final ODI at Southampton. Australia claimed the series 2-1 to end a miserable summer in England on a high.
Watson (143) and Michael Clarke (75) put on 163 runs for the 4th wicket as Australia were bowled out for 298. Ben Stokes finished with 5/61, doing his Ashes chances no harm whatsoever.
In the chase England lost wickets at regular intervals, with only Ravi Bopara (62) and Jos Buttler (42) showing any resistance.
After a miserable English summer where they finished with no victories in the Champions Trophy and the Ashes series, Australia managed to redeem themselves to a certain extant.
