Johnny Bairstow's century
Earlier, with the help of Johnny Bairstow's century, England recovered from a poor start and scored a strong score of 302 for seven in the third and decisive one-day international cricket match against Australia on Wednesday.
England won the toss and got off to bat first, losing two wickets in the first two balls of Mitchell Starc's match. But Bairstow hit 112 off 126 balls with the help of 12 fours and two sixes and meanwhile added 114 for the fifth wicket with Sam Billings (56 off 58 balls) giving England a poor 90 for four. Up. Chris Woakes (53 not out off 39 balls) again scored good runs in the final overs.
Adam Jumpa and Mitchell Starc took three wickets each
For Australia, leg-spinner Ada Jampa took three wickets for 51 runs. Stark failed to leave an impact after the initial success. He also took three wickets but took 74 runs for this. On Stark's first ball of the match, Jason Roy caught Glenn Maxwell on point, while on the next ball he roped out Joe Root. Morgan did not allow his hat-trick, but he too could not play long innings despite spending enough time at the crease.
Jampa took the ball in the 11th over, and on his second ball, Morgan's 23-run stand and his 67-run partnership with Bairstow came to an end. Jose Butler (eight) failed to reach double digits in the third match of the series and returned to the pavilion with a catch off the cover of Jampa. Butler was able to score only 12 runs in three ODIs.
Bairstow continued to play unperturbed from the other end, but he slowed down a bit as the century approached. He, however, completed his tenth ODI century by hitting a six at deep square leg over Pat Cummins. Bairstow and Billings, who scored a century in the first match, did not allow Australia to take advantage of a good start. This partnership was broken by Jampa, but then Billings had lost the wicket by his reverse sweep. He hit four fours and two sixes in his innings.
Cummins made a big relief to Australia before the death overs by scattering Bairstow's wickets on a beautiful ball by speed change, after which Vox took good responsibility and hit six boundaries in his innings and meanwhile completed his fifth ODI half-century. Tom Karan contributed 19 and Adil Rashid contributed an unbeaten run.
