The 26-year-old number three made 52 off just 31 balls on debut in the opening win yesterday, and he followed that up with a fantastic 115 not out off only 66 deliveries today, a knock which included 15 fours and three sixes.
The left-hander from Devon’s total lifted England to 180 for two, with Chris Edwards also contributing an unbeaten 38.
Captain Edwards was then the pick of the bowlers by taking three wickets for the concession of just two runs in his two overs as Australia were restricted to 94 for nine.
Tayler Young and Alex Jervis also chipped in with a couple of wickets apiece as England moved 2-0 ahead in the series, with the first of four 40-over matches taking place tomorrow and all six games counting towards the overall scoreline.
Man-of-the-match Bowser said: “I was a little bit stiff from yesterday but it was good.
“I think I got dropped fairly early on so I wanted to make the most of that, and as the innings went on I just wanted to open my shoulders a bit more and wanted to make sure we got a decent total.”
Asked whether there would be a change of mindset ahead of the one-dayers getting under way, Bowser added: “It’ll change the way I bat slightly but I think we’ll prepare the same way with the same intensity. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?”
