England's Eoin Morgan insists that choosing to bowl was not the wrong choice despite today's heavy defeat to Australia in the second ODI at Old Trafford.

England captain Eoin Morgan has said that he does not regret choosing to bowl in the second one-day international against Australia today.

The hosts fell 88 runs short of the Aussies' imposing 315-7 total led by captain Michael Clarke, who scored 105 from 102 balls at Old Trafford.

"It's very disappointing not to get a win under our belt in the first game of the series," Morgan, who notched a half-century, told Sky Sports News.

When asked if he regretted the decision to chase a total, Morgan said: "No, I don't think so. We have a very strong batting lineup and one that we have a lot of confidence in."

Australia take a 1-0 series lead as the first game was rained off. The third match of the five-game series takes place in Birmingham on Wednesday.
