Australia captain Michael Clarke has praised his players following their victory over England in the second one-day international at Old Trafford.

Clarke made an impressive knock of 105 on Sunday as the visitors earned a 88-run win to go 1-0 up in the series after the first match was rained off.

"It's nice to get a win and it's a good start to this series for us," he told Sky Sports News.

"England bowled pretty well up front on a good batting wicket, but all our boys did a fantastic job. To make over 300 was a really good score and all our bowlers executed."

The series continues on Wednesday when the teams meet in Birmingham.
