Brisbane, Australia: Eoin Morgan smashed a dashing century to lead England to a competitive 300-8 in the second one-dayer against Australia on Friday.


  
Morgan hit four fours and six sixes in his knock of 106 before he was caught by Michael Clarke off James Faulkner (2-71).
   
Ian Bell made 68 to steady the innings after the early loss of Alastair Cook (22) and Joe Root (2) before being run out by Clarke.
   
Cook had another disappointing day after winning the toss and electing to bat first on a dry and flat Gabba wicket. The England captain again went cheaply, caught and bowled by Glenn Maxwell (2-31).
