Off-spinner Ali took three wickets for 43 runs in 10 overs and leg-spinner Adil Rashid two for 36.

This match had started with Australia, keen to show the more sporting side of their nature, shaking hands with their England counterparts -- a move instigated by new captain Tim Paine.

Langer speechless after ridiculous run

  Langer speechless after ridiculous run Australia's horror showing in the third One Day International against England could be summed up by one play that prompted these reactions. Meanwhile, Justin Langer, in his first full series as Australian coach, could not bare to watch the nightmare that had developed.The Sky Sports commentary team of Nasser Hussain and Kumar Sangakkara were just as dumbfounded by the shocking attempt at a second run as Langer was."Surely that's a ridiculous run," Hussain said."Stoinis is looking at Maxwell as if Maxwell called it, but he's short there. He's way short.

The sheer extra speed of Australia ´s fast bowlers made talk of a ´docile´ surface all but redundant as England slumped to 30 for four inside 11 Smith, out for 199 against the West Indies in Kingston last month, completed a maiden Test double century when he whipped off-spinner Moeen Ali legside

England 's chase got a shift on despite the early loss of Alex Hales, whose summer return in ODI cricket now amounts to 214 runs in nine innings at an average of 23.78 after he Morgan became England 's highest-ever ODI run-scorer against Australia when he had scored 11, surpassing Graham Not out .

But their familiar problems against spin, evident in warm-up wins over Sussex and Middlesex where they twice failed to post 300 batting first, resurfaced.

Wickets fell steadily either side of a sixth-wicket stand of 84 between Glenn Maxwell (62) and Ashton Agar (40), the only two Australia batsmen to get beyond 24.

This was Australia's first international series since their tour of South Africa saw former captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner -- two of the world's leading batsmen -- given year-long bans by Cricket Australia for their roles in the ball-tampering scandal during the third Test in Cape Town in March.

Top-order batsman Cameron Bancroft, who applied sandpaper to the ball, was given a nine-month ban.

Paine shocked after his 'hardest' ever day

  Paine shocked after his 'hardest' ever day Australian skipper Tim Paine says his side's ODI capitulation against England rates as the hardest day of his career. AJ Tye went wicketless for 100 runs from nine overs with Jhye Richardson the pick of the bowlers with unflattering figures of 3-92."I've been playing cricket since I was a kid and that is the hardest day's cricket of my life," Paine said."Everything we tried didn't work and everything they tried came off."Normally that happens for an hour or two and you get a wicket.To go on for as long as we did ... you have to take your hat off to them, they hit the ball as well I have seen.

St. John's (Antigua and Barbuda) (AFP) - Indisciplined strokeplay proved the downfall of the West Indies as they were dismissed for 225 off 47.5 overs against England in the second one-day However the opening batsman, who lived a charmed life throughout his innings, was stumped for 42 off Moeen Ali .

World champions Australia came into this match having lost their last three ODI series -- a sequence that included a 4-1 loss at home to England in January.

England, the 2019 World Cup hosts, struggled for early wickets in their stunning defeat by Scotland.

But they had no such trouble at The Oval, with Australia 90 for five inside 20 overs after Paine won the toss.

Ali justified his introduction into the attack as first-change with two wickets for three runs in eight balls

He had the experienced Aaron Finch (19) slicing to short third man before Shaun Marsh (24) was bowled by a turning delivery.

Paine (12) fell in similar fashion to Finch, a needless reverse-sweep lobbing gently to Mark Wood at short third man.

Marcus Stonis, who made a hundred against Sussex, drove Ali for six but on 24 he was caught behind by wicket-keeper Jos Buttler -- the only change to the side beaten by Scotland -- cutting at Rashid.

England, without injured all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, were now well on top.

Maxwell, twice out in single figures during the warm-ups, hit his first ODI fifty in 10 innings.

The all-rounder struck two superb sixes over long-off against Ali and part-time off-spinner Joe Root.

But his near run-a-ball knock ended when he flicked at paceman Liam Plunkett and Bairstow, running round on the deep square leg boundary, held a good catch.

Agar offered solid support before he was plumb lbw to Rashid and the innings then fell away, with Plunkett taking three for 42.
