ENG vs AUS 1st ODI Live: Old Trafford, Manchester

England vs Australia (ENG vs AUS) 1st ODI Highlights: Australia, batting first in the 1st ODI vs England in Manchester, scored 294/9 in their 50 overs. England, led by a Sam Billings 118, fell 19 runs short, scoring 275/9.

Australia lost their openers David Warner (6) and Aaron Finch (16) early. Marcus Stoinis, promoted to 3 in Steve Smith’s absence, scored a quickfire 43 before falling. Marnus Labuschagne (21) was trapped LBW by Adil Rashid. Rashid struck again to remove Alex Carey (10) soon after. Mitchell Marsh (73) and Glenn Maxwell (77) then put on a partnership that set Australia on the road to recovery. They took the score from 123/5 to 249/5 before both of them fell in an attempt to accelerate the scoring. Their partnership was the highest 6th wicket stand for Australia against England in ODIs, beating a 29-year-old record.

England were off to a horrible start in their chase but were given some momentum in the chase by a 5th wicket partnership between Jonny Bairstow (84) and Sam Billings (118), who scored his highest ODI score. Josh Hazlewood (3/26) and Adam Zampa (4/55) were the wreckers-in-chief. Billings kept England’s hopes alive till the last over, but he was out off the last ball, England falling 19 runs short.

01:40 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Australia win by 19 runs

Mitch Marsh bowls the last over. 28 to get. Could Billings pull off a miracle in Manchester? Just a leg bye and a single from Archer from the first two balls leave more than sixes to get off every ball remaining. Third ball - four! Singles to finish off. And Billings is out for 118 off the last ball. England finish with 275/9 in their 50 overs, losing by 19 runs

01:33 (IST)12 Sep 2020
100 for Billings

A maiden ODI 100 for Sam Billings. Gets there with a four off the first ball of the 49th. Follows up with another boundary dancing down the track to Cummins. Another four off the fifth ball. Billings is taking this to the death! Keeps the strike with a single off the last ball. England need 28 in last over

01:31 (IST)12 Sep 2020
ENG need 43 in 2 overs

Starc and Cummins are strangling England, but the one thing which England would remember is that the 50th over will be bowled by a part-timer. Starc bowls the 48th. Singles off almost every ball. But Billings, who has been in his 90s for a while now, is struck on the helmet and needs a change of headguard. ENG 252/8 after 48, need 43 in 2 overs

01:25 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Starc, Cummins keep it tight - dot balls increase pressure on England

Billings comes up with an innovative ramp shot to hit Starc for a boundary to fine leg. But runs are scarce. Only two singles in the Starc over. Cummins also does briliantly at the death, just three runs off it. ENG 246/8 after 47, need 49 in 3 overs

01:16 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Rashid out - ENG need 58 in 5 overs

Cummins bowls the 45th over. Rashid, on strike, fails to get off strike, and goes for getting some quick runs instead. One of his shots is swooped on by Maxwell, who takes another catch! Maxwell is surely another contender for Man of the Match. England lose an 8th. Will Billings be left stranded? Jofra Archer is in at 10. Billings keeps strike for the 46th. ENG 237/8 after 45

01:10 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Zampa picks up a 4th - ENG need 66 in 6 overs

Zampa strikes again! Woakes holes out in the deep this time. Woakes goes for the aerial shot but is caught in the deep. He goes for 10. Billings, joined by Adil Rashid, keeps going. Reverse sweeps the spinner for another four. ENG 229/7 after 44

01:04 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Billings takes charge of chase - ENG need 74 in 7 overs

Two reverse sweeps for four from Billings in that over. Starc returns in the 43rd over. Billings moves into the 80s. This is his career-best ODI score now. ENG 221/6 after 43

00:50 (IST)12 Sep 2020
England need 105 in 10 overs

Woakes is in at 8. Hazlewood finishes with 10-3-26-3. He's a top contender for the Man of the Match award. Maxwell bowls the 40th over. One boundary and singles in the over. That won't hurt Austraia. ENG 190/6 after 40 overs, need 105 to win in 10 overs

00:44 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Hazlewood's third wicket

Hazlewood back into the attack to follow up on his clinical opening spell. 3 runs from his over. 2/24 in his 9 overs so far. Billings gets to 50, but there's a lot of work left to be done for England. Glenn Maxwell to bowl the 38th over. Just 2 runs in that over. Hazlewood to finish his full quota. Moeen Ali, who has been struggling to find runs, is caught at cover. Hazlewood's third wicket. ENG 182/6 after 38.4

00:33 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Bairstow OUT

Australia have the big wicket. Zampa gets Bairstow. The England opener, who looked to have found his touch after a torrid time in the beginning, is out for 84 off 107 balls. Hazlewood comes under the catch in the deep. Billings, on 49, is joined by Moeen Ali. ENG 174/5 after 36

00:29 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Bairstow attacks - Starc in discomfort

6 runs from Zampa's over. Then there are some signs of trouble for Australia. Starc, in some seeming discomfort with his groin area, continues to bowl. Bairstow charges him in the 35th over. A four goes past the bowler. A six is then hammered into the midwicket stands and the ball cannot be found by the Australian fielders. New balls required. ENG 169/4 after 37

00:19 (IST)12 Sep 2020
England need 143 in 17 overs

Stoinis continues to bowl in the middle overs as both sides prepare for what promises to be a frantic end to the match. 6 runs off the over, with both batsmen trying to steal singles and trying to turn the ones into twos. 150 comes up for England, with this partnership nearing a 100 itself. Starc, who has five overs remaining, brought back into the attack in the 33rd as Australia look for another breakthrough to kill off the contest. He gives away just 1 run in his over. ENG 152/4 after 33

00:07 (IST)12 Sep 2020
Billings Bairstow partnership gives England hope

23:55 (IST)11 Sep 2020
England score 45 in 5 overs

Marsh bowls another quiet over. Cummins replaces Zampa and England go after him too. Billings the aggressor this time. Drives a four to start off. The next two shots go over the keeper's head.

23:41 (IST)11 Sep 2020
50 for Bairstow

Mitch Marsh brought on to bowl. England struggle on. Finally a big over! Bairstow breaks free against Zampa. Two big clubs of the bat and two big sixes on the leg side. Another one is cut off at the ropes. Finally some runs for England. He was on 32* off 70 balls. He's blasted 18 runs in the last 8 to reach a 78-ball 50. 15 off the over. ENG 96/4 after 25

23:23 (IST)11 Sep 2020
England suffer torrid time

Mitchell Starc brought back into the attack for a second spell. 3 runs off the over as Billings and Bairstow look to shake themselves awake from the nightmare. Zampa gives away just 2 runs in the next over and there is an lbw appeal against Bairstow, who is just having a bad day in office. Bairstow gets a couple of runs against Starc. Zampa goes up in big appeal and Australia do Review against Billings. ENG 68/4 after 21

23:06 (IST)11 Sep 2020
Buttler falls for 1

England's slide continues! Jos Buttler, the new man in, goes for an aerial shot and Labuschagne comes in running from long on to take the catch. The danger man Buttler is gone for 1. England have lost almost their entire batting order. Sam Billings has joined Bairstow, who has looked nowhere near his best today. Australia firmly on top at this stage. ENG 58/4 after 16.4

22:57 (IST)11 Sep 2020
Zampa strikes in first over - Morgan falls for 23

Spin introduced for the first time by Finch. Zampa to bowl the 15th over. And he does the trick for Australia. Morgan, the one batsman who was looking dangerous today, is out. Morgan slogs and is caught at midwicket by Maxwell. He falls for 23. England in crisis now. ENG 55/3 after 14.5

22:50 (IST)11 Sep 2020
A four and a six off Hazlewood

Morgan ducks and sways as Australia keep bowling aggressive lines and lengths. Hazlewood continues to bowl a long spell. Bairstow cuts the first delivery for a firm four. That is the first boundary Hazlewood has conceded the whole match. Could this signal a change for Bairstow? Then there's the first six of the innings. Morgan lofts Hazlewood down the ground wide of long off. Morgan showing some signs he wants to shift the pressure onto Australia. ENG 48/2 after 14

22:42 (IST)11 Sep 2020
Hazlewood (6-3-5-2) all over Bairstow

Morgan picks on a Cummins short ball and dispatches it to the fine leg fence. Bairstow still in some trouble, looking at the pitch with suspicion as he gives away a few edges that land safely. Bairstow looks in woeful touch Hazlewood all over him, bowls his third maiden over. ENG 28/2 after 12
