Australia have set England a target of 252 to win the second one-day international. They finished their innings 251-7 at the Oval.
Australia won the toss and chose to bat. Opener Shane Watson led the way for the visitors.
The all-rounder hit 66 before being caught deep in the field by Steven Finn off the bowling of Graeme Swann.
George Bailey, batting at five, boosted Australia's total with 65 from 86 balls. Shortly after reaching his half century, he went for a big hit that was short of the boundary. The man underneath, Tim Bresnan, missed a diving catch - much to the frustration of bowler Graeme Swann. Bresnan eventually bowled Bailey on 65.
Bailey had struck up a smart partnership with fellow right-hander David Hussey. Hussey joined Bailey with the score on 128 and they left the score 206 when Hussey, on 29, was run out superbly by Steven Finn.
Swann, Finn, Stuart Broad and Ravi Bopara each took a wicket with the ball. With James Anderson out injured, Jade Dernbach was given a late call-up. The 26-year-old took no wickets for 59 runs.
England won the first match at Lord's on Friday but need to win the series 5-0 to replace Australia at the top of the one-day rankings.
