Eoin Morgan‘s sixth One-Day International (ODI) ton powered England to 300 for eight against Australia in the second ODI at Brisbane.

 

However a late flurry of wickets restricted the visitors.

 

Morgan’s lucky escape in 19th over proved to be a costly affair for Australia. With England down at 78 for three, Morgan would have been the fourth to go when he was caught in the deep off Michael Clarke, but umpire Kumar Dharmasena checked for the no-ball and it turned out that the Australia had erred with field placement. From thereon, Bell and Morgan stitched a valuable 61-run stand before the former was run-out by a brilliant throw from Clarke.

 

It was a roller-coaster ride until the 30th over for England. After a solid start from Alastair Cook and Bell, England lost quick wickets of Cook, Joe Root and Gary Ballance. The England skipper was the first to go when he was caught by Glenn Maxwell off his own bowling. In the next over, Mitchell Johnson, who made a return after being rested for the first match struck by removing Root leg before for just two runs. The decision was reviewed but it went in favour of the bowler. Pretty soon, Ballance too was on his way back stumped by Brad Haddin to give Maxwell his second wicket. Australia were depending on Mawell and Clarke’s spinning abilities in the absence of Doherty who made way for Johnson. Bell completed his 28th ODI fifty in the 22nd over.

 

After the 30th over, Morgan and Ravi Bopara upped the ante scoring at almost six an over. Their 39-run stand ended when Bopara was dismissed by James Faulkner for 24. Morgan on the other end continued to score at a brisk rate. He found an able partner in Jos Buttler who is known for his aggressive style of batting. Morgan completed his half-century in the 40th over with a couple off Faulkner’s bowling (his second in as many matches).

 

Morgan further accelerated getting most of the strike and completed his sixth ODI century in just 94 balls. Buttler and Morgan looked set to go past 300 but a late flurry of wickets dragged back England. Nathan Coulter-Nile struck twice in the 49th over to remove Buttler (45) and Ben Stokes for a first-ball duck. On the first ball of the next over, Morgan too was on his way back dismissed for 106.

 

The first innings score was declared as 296 for eight, but a decision of Dharmasena was changed when a shot from Jos Buttler which earned them two runs was adjudged to be a six.

 

Brief scores:

 

England 300 for 8 in 50 overs (Ian Bell 68, Eoin Morgan 106;  Glenn Maxwell 2 for 31, Nathan Coulter-Nile 2 for 55) vs Australia.
