So finally we have Australia who walked away with the series as Starc slams a FOUR. All thanks to Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey who scored centuries each.
Archer is here to bowl and he has not picked up a single wicket so far in the match. Three runs from five balls and we still don't know which way is the match exactly heading towards. WIDE! And Alex Carey was dismissed by third man as he attempted to hit it over the ropes. Carey OUT on 106.
After Maxwell, Alex Carey also joins the bandwagon as he scored his first ODI hundred. Its quite sure that Australia will win the game from here as they need 21 runs in 18 balls
Glenn Maxwell finally gets a big one in his over as he brings up his second ODI hundred with a SIX. Tom Curran the bowler looked helpless as they Aussies got 11 runs from the last over. Aus need 32 from 24
Chris Waoakes is back to business and so far in the game, he had snapped a couple of wickets in the inning. Two runs from the first two balls. Carey and Maxwell attempt to hit big shots but singles coming in easily. An attempt for run-out fails. AUS need 43 from 30 balls.
Mark Wood is here to bowl and starts off bowling a bit wider but that runs away for a FOUR. Maxwell and Carey are nearing hundreds. Single to end the over. Australia requires 58 runs from 42 balls.
Jofra Archer is here to bowl and after a couple of balls, Carey sends it to the rope for a FOUR. Archer bowls shorter, Carey goes squarer. Smart cricket by Carey. Nine from the over.
Mark Wood is here to bowl his eight over. This over was surely not a cakewalk for the hosts. Five runs from the over this time its a good over for the home team.

Both the opening two ODIs went right to the wire with Australia holding their nerve to win the first game and take the lead. Aaron Finch’s men looked set to win the second ODI after another brilliant bowling performance. Australia were at 144/2 chasing 232 to win and clinch the series in the second ODI but lost eight wickets for only 63 runs to succumb to a 24-run loss. It was an excellent comeback with the ball by the England bowlers led by Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes.

Archer and Woakes dismantled the Australia batting order with a wonderful spell. Both took three wickets each for only 30 odd runs and helped England defend the low score. The pair were also helped by a brilliant captaincy from Eoin Morgan and some tight death-over bowling by Tom and Sam Curran.
Australia are expected to welcome back Steve Smith into the playing XI for the series decider. Smith sat out of the opening two matches due to a concussion after being struck on the head during a training session before the ODI series. Marcus Stoinis could make way for Smith. England are expected to go ahead with the same playing XI unless Mark Wood recovers from his injury. England have not lost an ODI series at home since 2015 and are unbeaten in their last 14 ODI series.
