England beat Australia by 1 wicket at Old Trafford, Manchester on Sunday to complete a 5-0 historic whitewash. Incidentally, this is England’s first 5-0 whitewash over Australia in ODIs. Chasing 205, at one point it seemed like the Three Lions were out of the contest at 114/8. But Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 110 saw England canter home with 9 balls to spare.  The English dominance in the series has been simply admirable.
