England were restricted to 243 for nine by Australia in the third One-Day International (ODI) at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on January 19, 2014. England had won the toss and elected to bat first.

Alastair Cook and Ian Bell began well and put up a 50-run stand for the opening wicket. Captain Cook was the first to be dismissed for 35 off 36 deliveries by Nathan Coulter-Nile. He struck five fours and one six in a lively innings.

Bell was then run-out for 29 by David Warner. Ben Stokes, who was promoted to No 3, was then dismissed by Xavier Doherty for 15. Gary Ballance then fell for 26 to give Coulter-Nile his second wicket.

England’s star so far in the series, Eoin Morgan, then put up a 56-run stand with Ravi Bopara for the fifth wicket. Morgan scored a half-century in the first ODI and followed it up with a fine century in the second.

Morgan went onto to score 54 this time around off 58 deliveries with four fours and two sixes. But Bopara (21) and Morgan soon fell to James Faulkner and Dan Christian and England were at 186 for six.

Jos Buttler (4) and Stuart Broad (1) soon followed them and England had lost eight wickets for only 198 runs. Christian had accounted for Buttler and Coulter-Nile for Braod.

Tim Bresnan (41 not out) saved England’s innings to some extent with partnerships of 27 with Chris Jordan (10) and an unbroken 18 with James Tredwell (2 not out). Bresnan struck three fours and two sixes in his 29-ball cameo.

Coulter-Nile had finished with three wickets while Christian and Faulkner got two each. Doherty took one wicket. Australia need a victory to win the series with two matches to spare. England are still winless in their current tour of Australia.

Brief scores:

England 243 for 9 in 50 overs (Alastair Cook 35, Eoin Morgan 54, Tim Bresnan 41*; Nathan Coulter-Nile 3 for 47, James Faulkner 2 for 35, Dan Christian 2 for 52) vs Australia.
