- Thar brings us to the end of yet another game of which Australia have ended on their losing side. They might complain of lack of senior players right now, but if you could look at their one-day record over the last 18 months, it is not worthy of boasting in spite of having key players then. They have 24 hours to try and eke out a win against this solid-looking England side which will be gung-ho for a whitewash. Join us on Thursday, 21st June, 2018 at 1400 LOCAL (1300 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
- ALEX HALES HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS 147 FROM 92 BALLS. Says that this is as good as it gets, to achieve this win on his home ground and beating their own score 2 years ago against Pakistan. Admits that with the pool of talent currently in England, all players are on their toes throughout and that brings out the best in them.
- Victorious England captain, Eoin Morgan, feels that this is certainly a day when everyone in the dressing room will be proud of what has been achieved. Praises his guys for being relentless with the bat and ball. Is feeling proud of his top 3 batsmen at the moment who can bat at very high strike rates and keep coming at the opposition. Is also happy that the team will have selection headaches when Ben Stokes returns and believes it is a nice place to be in when the World Cup comes next year. For the remaining two games, Morgan says that the management will assess the bowlers before the next ODI in Durham. The batting looks settled, so one might not see a change there, he says. On the World Cup plans, Eoin believes that the team has put itself in a position wherein it can adapt to the changes in the modern game and if the players continue to do so, they will be in a great space come the big event.
- A distraught Aussie skipper, Tim Paine, says that this is the hardest day he has ever had in the last 16-17 years of his career. Stresses that they are a young side and are learning. Admits that it was very difficult to keep fielding placements for the batsmen as England just kept finding the gaps and are in red-hot form at the moment. On being asked about their World Cup plans, Tim says that 12 months' gap is a really long time and by then, 6 of the senior guys will be back in the side, which should change the complexion of this unit.
- Question mark in front of Australia. Seems like they were scheduled a weekly off initially but were then forced to come to office by their manager. The result? An underwhelming batting and bowling display. Tim Paine did a good job in the field to ensure that no one bowler went for a lot and everyone shared the spoils. Still, only Andrew Tye got to his ton. With the bat, Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis did offer some fightback but once the partnership was broken, it just ended way too quickly. Stay tuned for the presentation.
- A perfect game for England, can one say? Yes I guess. After making hash of comfortable positions in the first 2 games, today the home side got its best foot forward. They accepted the invitation to bat first and boy, did they feast. Barring Buttler, everyone had a good hit in the top 5, that too at a strike rate in excess of 130. And when they came to defend, the seamers struggled initially but then bounced back. Once again, the difference turned out to be the two spinners - Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid had combined figures of 15-0-75-7.
- Another disappointing game for Australia. Probably this was the worst for them in all the three games. Not because of the run margin but because they simply did not turn up today. The bowlers were sent to all parts of the boundary and the batsmen did not show any gumption, save aside Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis.
- 36.6 OUT! Stumped it will be and that ends the game. A WHOPPING 242-RUN WIN FOR ENGLAND - Their heaviest over any opposition and Australia's biggest defeat margin. Floated outside off, the googly, Stanlake comes down the track and looks to defend but misses the wrong 'un. Buttler collects and whips off the bails. It is still referred upstairs as Stanlake made a slight attempt to get back but replays confirm that it is not enough. ENGLAND GO 3-0 UP!!!
- 36.5 Around off, Billy is squared up as he looks to defend and the ball runs off the outside edge towards short third man.
- That should be the end of the match. It is a stumping appeal which is referred upstairs...
- 36.4 Tucks it through square leg for one.
- 36.3 Comes down the track and is nearly done in by the flight. Gets the bat down at the right time to defend and squirts it off the inner half towards mid-wicket for a quick run.
- 36.2 Full on middle, watchfully defended.
- 36.1 On middle, punched down to long on for a single.
- Billy Stanlake is the last man in...
