A buoyant England would be looking for an unassailable 3-0 lead when they face off against Australia in the third ODI at Nottingham.
England have so far been all over the Aussies, dominating with the ball in the first ODI and then lording over the opponents with the bat in the second. For Australia, they somehow need to find a way to stay alive.
England have continued with their impressive run in ODIs against the arch-rivals even as they have struggled in whites. In the last match, Jason Roy made a brilliant hundred while Jos Buttler continued with the stunning form he displayed in IPL 2018. The England keeper’s batting has been something else over the last couple of months.
Australia have got things wrong twice, with the bat in the first game, and in both aspects in the second. Shaun Marsh made a brilliant hundred in the second ODI, but he found no support at all. Glenn Maxwell has got two good starts in the two games, but that big score from Big Show remains elusive.
