England will want to put on a better performance, especially with the bat, when they host Australia in the 2nd ODI at Lord's on Saturday.

Australia showed their depth in batting in the first one-day international, with No.7 and No.8 – Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh respectively – putting on a century partnership to take their team to 305.

While the reply looked on course in the first half of the second innings, it went rather pear-shaped for England from there as they crashed to 246 all out.

Eoin Morgan said England were not quite at the same level as Australia after the loss, and it will be up to the batsmen to lift the home team up come Saturday at the most iconic of cricket grounds.

"We had a brief chat and we are all disappointed, it was well within our grasp," Taylor, who scored 49 in the first one-dayer, but could not go on, said.

"And how disappointed we were shows where we are at, the team is very confident at the moment, playing exciting cricket.

"In the past England teams would have been on the back foot but from the outside I think people will have thought we could chase down that score, which is a good place to be."

While England chased down and put up massive totals in that quite-amazing ODI series against New Zealand, Australia are a different kettle of fish. They are not the world champions for nothing, and no team have better depth in batting and bowling than the Aussies.

If England are to tie the series at 1-1, and prevent Australia from taking a that-is –the-series-nearly-done-then lead, they need to stay zoned-in for the entire 100 overs, because otherwise Steven Smith's men will punish you.

"The term 'playing without fear' is often thrown around but I think in this side we have enough players to go out there and back ourselves in whatever we're doing," Marsh said. "We've still got a pretty young bowling group which is probably the most exciting thing and the way they performed was awesome.

"There's no doubting this was a really important game to get us off to a good start. Hopefully that can continue. I think it's good we've only got a one day break because we can go into Lord's with a lot of confidence from this game."
