Consolation win for Aussies at Adelaide

28 January 2018

The final match of the series will be played in Perth on Sunday before England, Australia and New Zealand square off in a tri-nation T20 series that begins on February 3.

Cummins was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, while Hazlewood and Tye snapped up three wickets apiece.

Jason Roy's second-ball drive to backward point can be forgiven because that sort of aggressive intent is England white-ball policy these days.

Marcus Stoinis made a late attempt to lift Australia with a punishing 56, but England managed to hold on despite losing pacemen Liam Plunkett to a leg injury early in the Australian innings.

"So to get here, playing pretty much every game and not having any niggles really, it's something pretty foreign to me".

We look at the good and bad following Australia's three-wicket victory. Jonny Bairstow duck. Joe Root duck.

England are determined to "keep their foot on Australia's throat" as they target a historic whitewash Down Under, says Chris Woakes.

Instead he focused on a nervy chase which briefly threatened to bring England back into the game, exempting only Travis Head, who marked his recall with a crucial 96.

Presidents aren't required to get a checkup, but modern presidents do so regularly and release a doctor's report on the findings. While more exercise may be a tall order for the president, he said he's open to changing his diet to include smaller portions.

Earlier, Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bowl, saying that the tackiness of the Adelaide surface, coupled with the humid conditions, could work to his bowlers' strengths.

"We haven't quite transitioned from Test cricket to one-day cricket as well as we could have", Hazlewood said.

On Australia Day past year, South Australian captain Head opened the batting and struck his highest ODI score - 128 against Pakistan.

After Smith had elected to bowl first on a damp wicket, new-ball partners Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood got Australia off to a rollicking start as they reduced England to 8-5 by the seventh over itself. "The wicket here has been brilliant for a few years with pace and bounce".

Australia made a bit of a meal of the run chase and Smith continued his poor series with only 4 runs after he was well caught in the cordon by Root off Adil Rashid (3-49).

Tim Paine survived his own share of nervous moments, and Head was mortified to shell a catch to mid-on with only 17 required and four short of his century.

Perhaps England are just better suited to white ball cricket, but Australia's performance level has most certainly dipped.

"It feels like I'm bowling well and still feel relatively fresh". "They are a settled side who have a lot of confidence and think they can win from any position".
