When and where:
The hosts are now ahead by the 2-0 lead in the 5 matches ODI series. Even Shaun Marsh’s century could help Australia in chasing the 342-target given by the hosts. England posted 342 with the help of Jason Roy’s (120 of 108 balls) and skipper Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 91 of 70 deliveries. Australia fell short of 38 runs and was bundled out for 304 in 47.1 over.
England was led by Jos Buttler in the previous encounter after Eoin Morgan got ruled out due to back spasm shortly before the toss. Both the teams will now reload tomorrow (June 19) at Trent Bridge, Nottingham for the third ODI starting at 06:30 PM IST or 02:00 PM Local.
This is a must-win game for Australia if they wish to keep the series alive as one more win will give an unassailable lead to the hosts.
Trent Bridge in Nottingham is an ideal wicket that favors batsmen more. The highest score at this venue is 444/3 while the average score in the first innings is 244.

England faced a big blow when Eoin Morgan got ruled out of the second match due to his back spasm. He missed out the last game and was seen taking part in practice sessions at Trent Bridge. However, there still some doubt on his appearance in the third match. In case he misses out, Jos Buttler will do the captaincy duties. Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes have been ruled out of the remainder of series due to injuries. Stokes is expected to return for next month T20I series with India.
As per the latest updates, Eoin Morgan has high chances of getting in the playing 11 today. Place of Sam Billings is under doubts.
For Australia, both Billy Stanlake and Tim Paine are expected to play after overcoming their respective injuries. Stanlake missed the last match due to a foot injury while Paine was hit by a slow bouncer in the previous game.
Jonny Bairstow is under scanner due to his knee problems. Although is passed fit, he trained at Trent Bridge with ice and significant starpping around his knee.
