2nd ODI in Cuttack – India v England


Singh’s 150 ensures India had enough to spare

India have ensured a one days series win over England after big hitting in Cuttack. The key for India was an excellent 150 from Yuvraj Singh and a classic 134 with six sixes from Indian captain MS Dhoni. This enabled them to put a huge 381 on the board in their 50 overs despite the best efforts of Chris Woakes who took four wickets but he had little support with the ball. England gave the chase a good go, opener Jason Roy scored 82 and  Moeen Ali kept England in it with a 55 just as England looked like they were struggling. Needing 27 off 10 balls England Captain Eoin Morgan on 102 was their best chance, he was run out at that point which effectively sealed India’s win. England batted out the overs but India had 15 runs too many in the end sealing the series win with one game still to go.

3rd ODI in Perth – Australia v Pakistan


Captain Smith powers Australia home

Australian Captain Steve Smith supported by Peter Handscomb made light work of a target set by Pakistan to ensure Australia re-take the lead in their one day series. Pakistan batted first, Babar Azam top scored with 84 but they never truly got going as Josh Hazlewood took three wickets at key times to disrupt the rhythm. Their total of 263 never looked enough and so it proved. Handscomb hit 82 and Smith was there at the end with 102 not out as the two put on a partnership of 183. The Aussies were always ahead of the run chase and it was fitting that Smith got his century at the end to seal victory. The sides meet in two more contests so it is not over yet, but Pakistan will need to bat better to keep it alive.
