Australia is now on the verge to win the second ODI of the series. Very much like KP, English skipper failed to capitalise after crossing the fifty runs mark and gave his wicket to McKay after scoring 54 runs. After taking the wicket of the skipper McKay send B Stokes towards the pavilion when he was on five. And last thing the host team needed was a run out. And in the very next over (37th) Tredwell got run out. Buttler is the last hope for England as he is playing on 55.

KP didn’t manage to score much after completing his fifty and gave his wicket to Watson on 60. But after that English team lose another wicket in quick succession when Bopara followed KP after facing just seven deliveries. On one end Morgan has been scoring but now England need not to lose any wicket in the next ten overs, if they want to chase this big total. J Buttler is at the crease along with Moran.

In the 11th over Faulkner gave Australia its third wicket. A good length ball went through the gates of Root. After the fall of third English wicket, came the skipper Morgan. KP and Morgan are still at the crease and playing sensible cricket. KP has completed his 50 in the 18th over. And at the moment he is playing on 57 and on the other end Morgan is on 25.

As expected Australia have scored over 300 runs and if the home team has to win this second ODI, it has to score 316 runs. Australian skipper played the captains knock by scoring a century. It’s his first ODI century against the arch-rivals England. In his 105 runs knock he scored six fours and a maximum. Apart from him Bailey also contributed well by scoring 82 runs in mere 67 balls before giving his wicket to Bopara. So Australian batsmen have done their job and now it’s up to their bowlers to win the match for their team.

Both Clarke and Bailey have started scoring quickly. Now they are hitting boundaries at will. Skipper Clarke is heading towards his century as he is on 88 runs and has scored 12 boundaries so far. Bailey too has completed his fifty and is now on 61 runs. He used just 54 balls and scored three sixes and same number of boundaries to reach this score. Tredwell has already leaked 60 runs in his eight overs. Australia is at a driving seat and must be looking for a score around 300 plus.

In last ten overs Australia lost just one wicket in the form of their destructive opener Finch, who got out after scoring 45 runs in as many balls. But then Skipper Clarke and Bailey helped Australia to cross the mark of 150 runs in just 28 overs. In between Clarke also crossed the mark of fifty runs, whereas Bailey is on 22. At the moment Australia’s run rate is 5.30 and they are now heading towards a big score.

Over: 20 II Score: 104/2
Spin in James Tredwell was introduced in the 12th over. Watson struck a six off it over long on. Bopara removed Watson in the next over by having him caught by wicketkeeper Buttler. The umpire wasn’t convinced there was an edge but England were sure of that and went for the review. After reviewing it from myriad angles, finally Watson was adjudged out. He scored 38 (51b, 6X4, 6X1). His departure brought skipper Michael Clarke to the crease. Four runs and a wicket from the over. Finch scored his third boundary in the 15th over off the third delivery by Bopara. Clarke pulled Ranking through midwicket region for his first boundary in the 16th over. Off the 18th over (by Tredwell) came eight runs including a boundary to Clarke. The 20th over by Tredwell proved to be an expensive one as he leaked 13 runs in it that saw Finch sending his second delivery over midwicket boundary for a maximum. Clarke then sent his penultimate delivery over mid off region for a boundary.
AUSTRALIA Over: 10 II Score: 49/1
Watson struck his third boundary in the sixth over bowled by Rankin employing a pull. Six runs came in it. His fourth boundary came in the next off the fifth delivery to mid-on. That was the only scoring shot in the over. Watson’s fifth four came in the eight over through covers. Finch, who was watching from the other end as Watson regularly found boundaries, made up for it by striking two boundaries in the ninth over (Finn) though midwicket and square leg region. Ben Stokes was introduced in the 10th over and Watson managed to strike yet another boundary smashing a full toss through covers.
AUSTRALIA Over: 5 II Score: 16/1
Australian pair of Shaun Marsh and Aaron Finch opened the innings for the visitors after being invited to bat first by England. Steven Finn bowled a successful first over in which he not only picked up a wicket but also didn’t leak any run. Marsh played a poor shot and edged the fourth delivery to wicketkeeper Jos Buttler. He went back for a duck. Shane Watson came in to bat at no. 3. The next over by Boyd Rankin saw Australia open their account with a single off the first delivery. Two runs came in it. Off the third came three runs – a couple and a single. Watson scored his first and team’s first boundary through midwicket region in the next over of Rankin. Five came off it. Watson scored his second boundary off the third delivery of the fifth over (Finn) via a beautiful straight drive.
TOSS: England have won the toss and decided to field first.
Rain played spoilsport in the first ODI between England and Australia as the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled. After the five-match Test series, the focus has now shifted to limited overs game. The two traditional rivals shared the two-match T20I series 1-1 and will now cross swords in the five-match ODI series – the first of which was washed out on Friday.
The second ODI will be played at Old Trafford and Australia will look to start the series on a winning note after enduring 4-0 defeat at the hands of the hosts in the recently concluded Ashes series.
