Morgan: 'England have found a new gear'
England ODI captain Eoin Morgan praises his side for finding a "new gear" following their fourth successive one-day international victory over Australia.

England ODI captain Eoin Morgan has praised his side for finding a "new gear" following their fourth successive one-day international victory over Australia.

Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow tallied a total of 174 runs on Thursday as the hosts chased down 311 on Thursday, eventually reaching 314-4 with more than five overs to spare.

England's latest victory, which is their second-highest ODI run chase in history, came two days after the team set a new world record of 481 runs in a single innings at Trent Bridge.

"If it does become the 'normal', that would be awesome - because it creates an unbelievable tone at the top of the order," Morgan told Sky Sports News.

"I think the form the guys are in is phenomenal. I think we've found a new gear, or a new level of intensity.

"I'm glad we're spoiled for guys in form at the moment, because I've been in teams where [those] next in or fighting for places can't get a run. This is a very privileged position to be in."

England could complete a first-ever ODI whitewash of Australia with victory at Old Trafford on Sunday.
