Australia Wins ODI Series Against England

Thursday, September 17th, 2020

The Australian cricket team has defeated England by three wickets in the third one-dayer at Old Trafford, to claim a 2-1 series victory.

Chasing 303, the Aussies looked down and out at five for 73.

Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey steered the ship, each scoring a century and combining for a 212-run partnership.

Maxwell says he threw caution to the wind when he got to the crease.

“Being the last batter, I suppose I had a bit of a licence to go for it from the start,” he says.

“Luckily enough, I hit the middle of the bat pretty consistently at the start of my innings and was able to run on for a bit of momentum there.”

Mitchell Starc hit the wining runs in the final over.

Maxwell was named Player of the Match and Player of the Series.
