Norfolk prodigy Callum Taylor was unable to prevent England U19s losing their one-day series against Australia U19s in Perth earlier today.

The 17-year-old Swardeston and Essex all-rounder scored 11 runs from 32 balls as England were bowled out for 138.

The hosts then made quick work of reaching their total, reaching 139-3 in 28 overs, with the former Cromer High School pupil not introduced into the bowling attack.

The defeat at Murdoch University Ground leaves England 3-1 down in the series, with one match to play, at the same venue on Thursday.

Taylor has scored two half-centuries in the series so far, as well as taking four wickets as England won the first match of the series by two wickets.
