Steven Smith targets one-day international series victory

Australia captain Steven Smith admits that he hopes to complete victory in the one-day international series against England in the next match at Old Trafford.

Australia captain Steven Smith has challenged his side to wrap up the one-day international series after the tourists beat England by 64 runs at Lord's to take a 2-0 lead.

Smith knocked 70 off 87 balls as Australia made 309-7 from 49 overs after a spell of rain in the morning slightly shortened the game.

In response, England were dismissed for 245 in 42.3 overs despite a battling 85 from captain Eoin Morgan.

"I thought our fielding was quite sloppy to be honest - our batting and bowling came together in patches but there are a lot of improvements to do and hopefully we can do that in our next few games," Smith said.

"Hopefully we can continue playing good cricket and win this series in the next game. I don't want to shy away from the fact that it was a great game of cricket as well."

The third fixture in the series takes place on Tuesday at Old Trafford.
