England vs Australia (ENG vs AUS) 3rd ODI Highlights: Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey centuries guided a thrilling chase to help Australia win the series. At 73/5, their backs were against the wall, but the writing wasn’t finished yet as two splendid tons from Alex Carey (106) and Maxwell (108) have helped Australia claim a miraculous victory. It’s the first bilateral ODI series England have lost at home since 2015!

Earlier, England made a fantastic recovery from a horror start to end with 302/7 after 50 overs. Captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to bat first in Manchester but the Three Lions lost two wickets in the first two balls of their innings. But from there on Jonny Bairstow steadied the ship and finished with a belligerent 112. A quickfire fifty from Chirs Woakes helped England cross 300. Scroll down for full highlights from the enthralling contest.

Some of the Australian players will now play in the Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates before heading home for the southern summer, and those without IPL contracts will return to Australia for a period of quarantine.

Here's how Australia got home

The tourists win a thriller by three wickets to take the series 2-1. What a game of cricket!!

01:43 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Australia won by 3 wkts

VICTORY FOR AUSTRALIA! Starc sweeps it away towards the fine leg area for a boundary and its game over! Sensational win for Australia! Aaron Finch's side clinches a series victory against England in dramatic fashion. England have lost a bilateral home ODI series for the first time since 2015.

01:42 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Adil Rashid to Starc! SIX

WOW! Fantastic stroke from Mitchell Starc and the first ball of the last over bowled by Rashid has gone for a maximum! It was a slow google and Starc nails it over long-on. 4 runs needed from 5 balls. 

01:39 (IST)17 Sep 2020
WHAT A CATCH! Carey is gone

Carey messes it all up. He is gone for 106 and a special catch from Mark Wood and takes it really low! Brilliant over from Archer. What a moment in the game. What a sensational finale this is. AUS- 293/7 after 49 ovs | Need 10 off last over now!

01:35 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Getting tense in the middle

Archer to bowl the penultimate over. He's been expensive today, but Morgan trusts his World-Cup-Final-Super-Over-bowler. 14 off 12.

01:30 (IST)17 Sep 2020

Glenn Maxwell tries to go for a big one against Adil Rashid but couldn't connect it. Tom Curran takes an easy catch and he has to go after a swashbuckling knock of 108(90). Twist in the tail yet again?


01:28 (IST)17 Sep 2020
How good was Maxwell tonight?


01:27 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Century for Carey

AND NOW CAREY GETS TO 100! Brilliant from Australia. Remember, he was caught on 9 off a no-ball from Archer.

01:22 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Magnificent from Maxi!

2nd ODI hundred with a typical Glenn Maxwell style SIX. Is that a series-winning century?


01:18 (IST)17 Sep 2020
A dive saves Carey

Fabulous cricket! Carey pulled it towards the deep mid-wicket but Billings comes up with a terrific throw and Carey has to make a full-length dive. Is he in? Yes, just in -- by a few inches as Butler breaks the stumps. AUS- 260/5 after 45 ovs | Need 43 runs from 30 balls! Surely it's Australia's game to lose now

01:13 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Maxwell manufactures a 4!

He picks the slower ball and its boundary over mid-off! 7 off the over from Tom Curran. AUS- 252/5 after 44 ovs | need 51 off 36. Maxwell into the 89s, Carey into the 80s. Australia need 51 runs in 36 balls

01:04 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Records are crumbling

This is now the highest 6th wicket partnership for Australia in ODIs - of all-time!
Surpasses Mike Hussey and Brad Haddin's 165 against WI in 2006.

01:02 (IST)17 Sep 2020
9 from the over! AUS 236/5

A much-needed boundary from the bat of Carey as he cuts it uppishly past the square third man for four! Nine runs from the over and its getting tighter and tighter! Will a wicket get England back into the game? They don't look like picking one, though! 42 overs have been bowled.

00:54 (IST)17 Sep 2020

200 up for Australia

This is going right to the wire. AUS- 201/5 after 37 overs | needing 102 from 78 balls.

00:40 (IST)17 Sep 2020
MASSIVE from Maxwell!

SIX! He gets inside the line, reaches out, and slog-sweeps this, venting all his wrath and chanelling it into the cow corner seats


00:38 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Record Partnership

With their backs against the wall at 73/5 chasing 303, a classy Alex Carey (62*) has kept Australia in the game along with Maxwell (56*) . The duo have already put on 113 runs together. Can they take the Aussies home? AUS - 186/5 after 35 ovs | This is now the highest 6th wicket partnership for Australia vs England in ODIs (surpassing 112 by Simon O'Donnell and Mark Waugh in Sydney, 1991) | Remember this record that was set five days ago? It's just been broken by Carey and Maxwell!

00:15 (IST)17 Sep 2020
Saved by the sweatband of the glove

Maxwell went for the reverse sweep and it would have thumped into middle but he ended up gloving it! How lucky is that ?
