    Watched most of it, went out at Oz 73/5. Thought they were dead and buried. Then Maxwell and Carey getting them to the brink of victory......they both get out with only tail enders left. But Starc hits a 6 and a 4 in the final over to win it. Fantastic win.

    England 0 for 2 after 2 balls
    Indeed- and Carey looked incapable of scoring in the previous game- and Maxwell also did very little. 50 overs ebbs and flows, 20overs just seems to have a single momentum.

    It has been a very good series- Australia just about edges it, but might easily have lost last night.

    Looking at the scorecard for yesterday's England Australia ODI

    England won the toss, batted and Roy, the opener was out to the first ball of the Match.

    Root came in next and was out to the second ball of the Match

    Mitchell Starc, therefore, was on a Hattrick with the third delivery of the Match.

    Eoin Morgan survived it.

    Australia won by three wickets with two balls to spare.

    James Anderson’s 600th test wicket- only fast bowler to do so...

    Follow on duly enforced, but weather will determine the outcome of the series at 1-0 or 2-0.

    England declared at 583 for 8, yesterday evening, giving their bowlers eleven overs at full belt at Pakistan.

    It worked, Pakistan were 30 for 3 at Stumps.

    41 for four at an early Lunch due to rain.

    Great effort by England, very well done. Maybe naive captaincy from Pak. Sort of sat back after Pope went and waited for England to get themselves out.

    Great game- at one point crickviz only gave England 9% of winning.

    Buttler and Woakes came together at 117 for 5 and have put on 119 as I type. 43 needed in about 20 overs plus a day.

    Hardly inching, when pope got out to an unplayable ball the pressure seemed to leave Buttler, fantastic support from Woakes, near century stand in 20 overs. New ball could still tell a tale.

    Pakistan need to be careful. Though as the target seems possibly reachable .......the batsmen will tighten up.
