Innings Highlights

49.1OUTFaulkner to Eoin Morgan, out Caught by Clarke!! A fine innings comes to an end and England might not reach 300 now, high full-toss on off, Morgan could have hit it anywhere in the ground, but looks to go over mid off, but gets it off the higher part of the bat and lobs a simple catch to Clarke at mid off, standing ovation for him and he rightly deserves it. Eoin Morgan c Clarke b Faulkner 106(99) [4s-4 6s-6]293/8
48.5OUTCoulter-Nile to Stokes, out Caught by Maxwell at deep mid wicket!! This will slow things down, full and on the pads, Stokes goes for a wild swing, but gets it off the bottom of the bat and the ball goes at the comfortable height and straight into the hands of Maxwell at deep square leg. Stokes c Maxwell b Coulter-Nile 0(1)292/7
48.3OUTCoulter-Nile to Buttler, out Caught by Clarke!! Finally a wicket, good catch in the end by Pup, shortish delivery on the stumps, Buttler makes room and goes for the pull, but only manages a top edge that goes up in the air towards mid on, where Clarke misjudged it initially, but recovers well to take a sharp catch. Buttler c Clarke b Coulter-Nile 45(36) [4s-3]291/6
47.4FOURJohnson to Buttler, FOUR, England are inching towards the 300-run mark, slightly shorter outside off, Buttler goes for the almighty swing, but gets a top ege past the keeper to third man285/5
47.2OTHERJohnson to Buttler, 2 runs, what a fantastic save from Marsh near the ropes at long off, fuller length delivery on off, Buttler gets under it and lofts it through the line towards long off, it was sailing over the ropes, but Marsh times his jump to perfection and pushes the ball back into the action, the partnership between Buttler and Eoin Morgan is now 101278/5
46.4FOURCoulter-Nile to Eoin Morgan, FOUR, he gets to his 6th ODI ton in a strange style, what insane hitting it has been from Morgan, it was short and on middle, Morgan arches back and upper glides it over the keeper's head to third man, he punches his fist in the air and hugs Buttler274/5

49.3FOURBresnan to Faulkner, FOUR, can you believe it? Australia have won this game from nowhere. Take a bow James Faulkner! Low full toss on the off stump, Faulkner backs away and drives it past the diving fielder at extra-cover and Australia go 2-0 up in the series. Surely, this was England's best chance to win a game.301/9
49.2FOURBresnan to Faulkner, FOUR, I seriously think this is not the length to be bowling at this stage, Captain Pup is pumped in the dressing room! Short on the stumps, Faulkner pulls over mid-wicket and there is no one in the deep. Gee! What striking this from Faulkner under pressure297/9
49.1FOURBresnan to Faulkner, FOUR, top edge found and this goes over the keeper's head to the third man fence. Great start to the over for Australia. Slower ball on the stumps, Faulkner slogs and gets a thick edge. That will do293/9
48.4SIXStokes to Faulkner, SIX, Stokes is under serious pressure. Faulkner has got what he wanted in the over. Length again, Faulkner times the slog really hard and this one goes into the second tier over the deep mid-wicket fence288/9
48.3SIXStokes to Faulkner, SIX, he backed himself to clear the fence any time and as Stokes bowled a length ball right in the slot, Faulkner slogs it high over the deep mid-wicket fence. Third ODI fifty for Faulkner282/9
46.5SIXStokes to Faulkner, SIX, Joe Root has taken a blinder at deep mid-wicket but the momentum of his run takes him over the ropes. Good length delivery on the stumps, Faulkner slogs it high in the air, Root grabs it with his left-hand, he tries to push it back onto the field before crossing the fence but the ball hits the rope270/9
