Sydney: Eion Morgan made 54 to again provide the backbone of the innings as England reached 243-9, batting first after winning the toss and batting Sunday in the third one-day cricket international against Australia.
 

 
Morgan followed his brilliant century in Friday's second international at Brisbane with a half century from 54 balls but his was largely a lone effort in a tired and directionless England batting performance.
 
Tim Bresnan made an unbeaten 41 from 36 balls at the tail, hitting two sixes from the final over of the innings to add a little gloss to the England total.
   
Captain Alastair Cook made 35 in his best performance since the second innings of the fourth Ashes test -- a series of six innings in which he has only twice reached double figures.
