England vs Australia (ENG vs AUS) 2nd ODI Highlights: England, batting first in the 2nd ODI vs Australia in Manchester, put up 231/9 in their 50 overs. Australia were all out for 207 in reply. England, winning by 24 runs, have leveled the series at 1-1. (FOLLOW 3RD ODI LIVE)

England never got going in their innings till the 9th wicket stand. After Jonny Bairstow fell for a duck and Jason Roy (21) was run out by Joe Root (39), there was a patient partnership between Root and Eoin Morgan (42). They both fell in quick succession and a slide of wickets followed. Adam Zampa (3/36) and Mitchell Starc (2/38) were the wreckers-in-chief for Australia, with ample help from Josh Hazlewood’s (1/27) economical spell. They were taken beyond 200 courtesy a 76-run 9th wicket partnership between Tom Curran (37) and Adil Rashid (35*).

Australia were pegged back by two Jofra Archer (3/34) strikes but were back on course on the back of a 107-run partnership between Aaron Finch (73) and Marnus Labuschagne (48). However, just as Australia were looking to run away with it, the reintroduction of Archer and Chris Woakes (3/32) brought about a collapse from 143/2. Australia kept losing wickets thereon to be all out for 207.
