England lose again,6th time in succession

Australia's stand-in keeper Tim Paine made a steady 111 to build a strong platform,while White and Hopes made quick 35 and 38 respectively to help them reach 296 in the 6th ODI.Mike Hussey also made a fluent 65 off just 69 balls.Tim Paine showed great temperament playing a mature century,even though he took his time making it.He faced 148 balls for 111,giving the Australian middle order a good platform to capitalize on.This worked in their favour as they ended up making 296.England who haven't been able to compete through the tournament,continued their poor show.Skipper Andrew Strauss went 2nd ball of thier innings for no score.Few english batsmen got starts,however,no one capitalized.In the end,England fell way short by 111 runs.Hopes got 3 wickets,while Bracken and Lee took 2 wickets each.Australia are taking a solid revenge for the ashes loss,while England look clueless.
