- Australia were bowled out for 298 after winning the toss, Shane Watson making 143 and Ben Stokes taking a career-best 5-61.
- Jonathan Trott (back) and Steve Finn were left out and replaced by Luke Wright and Chris Jordan, the only changes from the England side that levelled the series at The Swalec Stadium on Saturday.
- Hampshire's Michael Carberry was out for 30 in his first international at The Ageas Bowl
249 (38) England have lost by 49 runs folloiwng the dismissal of Boyd Rankin, bowled by Fawad Ahmed
197-7 (39.1) Stunning catch from Voges at extra cover. The ball left Bopara's bat like a tracer bullet but the Essex man is out.
195-6 (38.1) Buttler bowled for 42 (37 balls) at start of Faulkner's 3rd spell
195-5 (38) Buttler's ramp shot for 4 against Mckay followed by a full-blooded drive against Watson in next over. Game on still.
103-5 (25.1) England have a lot of work to do at halfway, Eoin Morgan having just been stumped against the slow left-arm of Adam Voges...Ravi Bopara (15*) has already survived a review against the former Hants man
68-4 (17) Bailey's brilliant direct hit runs out Wright for 0 following the loss of Root, bowled by Johnson's slower ball in the previous over. Morgan has already been dropped on 15 by Shane Watson at 1st slip in this over from Faulkner.
50-2 (12.5) Michael Carberry goes for 30 (50 balls, four fours). #carbswatch ends with that lbw decision to James Faulkner following Australia's decision to review Rob Bailey's not out call.
44-1 (12) After struggling to get bat on ball in the twilight, Carberry (30*) cut Fawad Ahmed for two in the leg-spinner's first over.
37-1 (10) Johnson hits 92.1 mph as England reach 37-1 at the end of the mandatory powerplay
36-1 (9) A flash and a miss for Carberry (26*) against McKay. Maiden over.
30-1 Trademark extra cover drive for 4 from Carberry against McKay
25-1 (6) Carberry evaded a 91.2mph bouncer before working Johnson for a single
22-1 (5) Carberry edged 4 wide of a diving Finch at 2nd slip and then another edge against McKay's next ball went between wicketkeeper Wade and 1st-slip Watson for another boundary
9-1 (3) Carberry glanced his first boundary, against McKay
3-1 (2) Carberry has a couple of singles to mid-wicket to his name, against McKay and Johnson
1-1 (0.4) Carberry got off the mark with a single to mid-wicket against Clint McKay - but then KP was run out in inexplicable fashion. When the ball went behind square he reacted far too slowly to Carberry's call and was run out by a distance.
England bowling: Rankin 9.1-1-26-1, Jordan 10-0-51-3, Stokes 10-0-61-5, Bopara 10-0-54-0, Tredwell 4-0-38-0, Root 6-0-58-1
298 (49.1) England have done very well to restrict Australia to 298. The final wicket was well deserved for Boyd Rankin, Clint Mckay (5) caught at deep midwicket by Joe Root.
294-9 (48.4) James Faulkner's inside edge gives Jordan his second wicket
284-8 (45) Make that five-for! Mitchell Johnson caught and bowled for 2 attempting to work the ball onto the leg side. Stokes has 5-57 from 9 overs.
282-7 (44.4) Shane Watson has finally gone for a sensational 143, caught behind after attempting to hit Ben Stokes into Telegraph Wood. Stokes' career-best before today was 1-42 but he now has four wickets...
279-6 (44) 6-4-6-2-6-4 - 26 of the 28 from for Watson against Root, beginning with a magnificent strike over long on. (the other two maximums sailed several rows back at mid-wicket)
244-6 (40.2) Watson still there but Voges has gone for 8, well caught by Jos Buttler low to his right.
242-5 (40) good comeback from England but Australia should get 300 comfortably
good to hear @alanspidermulla telling @bbctms listeners about his #HampshireLeague career with us. He made 34, 16 & 0! aggregate of 50!— @SwanGreenCC 16 September 2013
233-5 (39) Bopara's bowled out after a very tidy second spell 3-0-9-0 (first spell 7-0-45-0)
227-5 (37) Magnificent 87-ball hundred for Shane Watson (8 fours, 3 sixes)
221-5 (35.2) Bailey given out by third umpire, stumped by Buttler after missing attempted sweep against Root's off-spin
211-4 (32) Clarke miscues a pull to Pietersen at mid-off, the end of an excellent 75 (76 balls, 10 fours, one six) and a second wicket for Chris Jordan. His partnership with Watson was worth 163
Meanwhile, Hampshire have recalled Brathwaite for Balcombe ahead of tomorrow's penultimate match of the season http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/sport/10677954.Hants_recall_Brathwaite/
204-3 Rankin's dropped Clarke on 72 off Jordan at mid-off. It was fiercely struck but he should at least have caught it at the second attempt.
203-3 (31) Brilliant first over back from Rankin, just the single off it and he tested Clarke with some steep bounce outside off stump.
180-3 (27) Clarke reached his 50 from 58 balls in that first over from Joe Root. If you like a stat this is comfortably Clarke & Watson's biggest partnership at the Ageas Bowl (surpassing their 74 in a t20 win against Kent, the last of their seven games together for Hampshire in 2004)
148-3 (24) Watson's driven his second six against Tredwell, having pulled Bopara for a maximum in between. They have all come since reaching his fifty from 49 balls (six fours)
Aaron Finch was star of the show the last time England faced Australia at the Ageas Bowl, scoring a record 156 off 63 balls in a T20 international last month. However, he made just 26 today before losing his wicket (Chris Ison/PA Wire)...
A smiling Michael Carberry celebrates with his England teammates after catching Phil Hughes off the bowling of Chris Jordan (Chris Ison/PA Wire)...
106-3 (19) Stokes' spell (5-0-34-2) ends with the introduction of James Tredwell
100-3 (18) Clarke, one of five former Hampshire players in this Australia team, deposited Stokes back over his head for the day's first six
78-3 (14) Beautifully driven four from Clarke at the beginning of Stokes' third over
48-3 (10) The mandatory powerplay ends with Clarke defending the hat-trick ball on the on-side
48-3 (9.5) Stokes is on a hat-trick after Matthew Wade nicked an attempted hook to wicketkeeper Jos Buttler. Captain Clarke to face the hat-trick ball.
48-2 (9.4) Ben Stokes dismisses Finch (26), caught by Morgan at point, with the first ball after the resumption
RAIN - 48-1 (9.3) Players off midway through Ben Stokes' first over
47-1 (9) Powerfully cut Finch four against Rankin. Jordan's opening spell is over (4-0-28-1) as he is replaced by Ben Stokes at the Northern End
38-1 (8) Shane Watson pulled his first boundary off the front foot against Jordan - and then Finch cut the last ball for another four
29-1 (7) Impressive economy from Rankin, just the 9 off his 4 overs so far
29-1 (6) good pace but Jordan's radar's a little awry. 3 wides in as many overs.
18-1 (4) Chris Jordan clocked 90mph during that over
13-1 (3.2) Debutant Chris Jordan began his second over with a wide but the wicket of Phil Hughes (2)should settle any nerves. Former Hampshire batsman Hughes was beaten for pace after trying to pull a short ball. A huge top edge sent the ball skywards and Michael Carberry took the catch at mid-wicket.
12-0 (3) Well bowled Boyd Rankin
10-0 (2) Chris Jordan's first ball for England was cover-driven to the fence by Finch, who dispatched the fourth delivery for another...
2-0 (1) Good start from Boyd Rankin
Michael Carberry's not the only #hantscricket man on England duty today, @griffta18 is 12th man #EngvAus— @simonhwalter 16 September 2013
The Ageas Bowl's two previous international matches this season have both seens records shattered. Groundsman Nigel Gray has confirmed we are using the same pitch on which Martin Guptill hit 189 here for NZ, while Aaron Finch will hope to redoscover something like the form that saw him hit his sensational 156 less than three weeks ago.
Australia: Finch, Hughes, Watson, Clarke*, Bailey, Voges, Wade†, Faulkner, Johnson, Fawad Ahmed, McKay
England: Carberry, Pietersen, Wright, Morgan*, Bopara, Buttler†, Stokes, Root, Tredwell, Rankin, Jordan
Both sides have made two changes from Saturday's 4th ODI at the Swalec Stadium, England bringing in Wright )(back) and Jordan for Trott and Finn. Australia have replaced Marsh (injured) and Coulter-Nile with Phil Hughes and Fawad Ahmed.
