Australia win the battle of nerves & the series

Sep 17, 2020 08:21 IST

Australia beat England in a stunning manner in the 3rd and final ODI of the series to take home the silverware. England who were reduced to none for 2 wickets after the first two deliveries, fought back to score 302/7 from their 50 overs. Jonny Bairstow slammed a fighting hundred as Sam Billings & Chris Woakes clocked twin half-centuries. In reply, the visiting Aussie team were left struggling at 73/5 as they starred down the barrel. But a whirlwind & record breaking 212 run stand between Alex Carrey and Glenn Maxwell took the visitors to the doorstep of a famous win. While Carrey smashed 106, the Big Show tonked 7 sixes in his 90 ball 108. But both perished right at the end leaving the visitors in need for 10 from the last over. Mitchel Starc then played a cameo which saw him smash 11 off 3 balls to take Australia over the finish line with 3 wickets in hand.
