Kevin Pieterson's 91 not out off 65 balls against the Aussies, powered England home in the 3rd match of the Natwest Series. In reply to the Aussie total of 252, the Englishmen lost wickets and were finding it difficult to keep up with the run rate. But Pieterson quickly reacted to make sure that they got home safely with few overs to spare. During the Aussie innings Steve Harmison got 5 for 33 to restrict Australia to a moderate total.
Its the consecutive defeat in the Natwest Trophy for the Aussies as they lost to Bangladesh yesterday. Aussies are yet to score a win this season. Its also a consecutive defeat for the Aussies against England in One-day Internationals as they lost to England in the Champions Trophy Semi Finals last year.
