That was a tense finish and great come back by Carey and Maxwell. Nice to see Starc start with 2 quick wickets and then hit the victory runs when it looked like we'd choked a certain victory.
Maxwell is now the player that faced the least number of balls to score 3000 ODI runs. 123 strike rate.

I actually enjoy it more when we fluke a win against the poms rather than when we win comprehensively. Even though they are such arrogant buggers their sense of fair play means that they will accept with grace a good thrashing which means we in turn must be humble in victory. But in truth they should have won that game but for a no ball, a dropped chance and Starc topping the tailing the contest the way he did. So, how sweet it is! rolleyes.gif

I see Steve Smith was not playing. It would terrible if we lose him permanently to concussion.

And once again, OZ cricketers make fools of us.
After having the POMS 2/0 off Starcs first two balls, then 4/94, they let em get away to 307.
But then to the amazement of almost everyone, Carey and Maxwell rack up the highest 5 wicket partnerships in ODI's, with both getting centuries.
Stoinis, 4, Marsh 2.
I suppose it doesn't matter whether you win with down or 9 down, the win is the important thing.

Normal service returned.
After an excellent bowling and fielding display to keep the poms to 231, Aus batsmen implded.
After being 2-144, managed to lose 8 for 63 in a rather dramatic collapse.
Maxi1, marsh 1, at least Carey got to 36.
Finch kept it going to 73, but not uch support.
Poor display by OZ.

Maxi can at least bowl. Took more wickets ad at a lower average than Starc.
Smith ad Carey did not exactly set the world on fire.
Stoinis averaged better than these two, but almost singlehandedly lost game one when it was there for the taking.
M Marsh comes i for one game and "stars".
Be like Maxi , from now on and do nothing till he is dropped again.

Aussies win third match.
Maxwell averages about 10. Usual form, always gets chosen. Pathetic selection.
And Labs canít get a go ?

Cheers

England need 18 off the last two overs ......... chance for the Aussies maybe ? No, the Poms did it in one over. We didn't bat very well and paid the price. Well done England to win the series.

Cheers
