England Beat Australia By Three Wickets [AbbTakk] 14 Jun, 2018

England Beat Australia By Three WicketsOval (June 14, 2018): England made heavy work of a run-chase before eventually completing a three-wicket win over Australia in the first one-day international at The Oval.Chasing 215 for victory, the home side were reduced to 38-3. After Eoin Morgan and Joe Root shared 115, they lost three wickets for 10 runs to slip to 163-6 in the face of some excellent Australia pace bowling.However, David Willey made an unbeaten 35 to secure victory with six overs to spare.Australia were playing their first ODI since the ball-tampering scandal resulted in bans for Steve Smith and David Warner, as well as the resignation of coach Darren Lehmann.New Australian captain Tim Paine introduced a pre-series handshake between the two teams, then saw his side struggle against England’s spinners.Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid took five wickets between them and, after Australia fell to 90-5, they needed Glenn Maxwell (62) and Ashton Agar (42) to drag them to 214 all out.That did not seem enough on a blameless surface but England’s two mini-collapses kept the contest interesting long into the London evening. The second game in the five-match series is in Cardiff on Saturday.Related News:Australia 214 All Out Against England In 1st ODIAustralia Rout England By an Innings to Win Ashes 4-0abbtakk Abbtakk english Abbtakk News Abbtakk Updates England vs Australia England win Oval Sports
