England chasing a moderate total lost 3 wickets quickly and were struggling at 35 for 3 when rain stopped play, after the break Morgan and Stokes started to build a partnership. They put on 50 runs together then quickly developed that into 100 runs, with over 50 runs to both Morgan and Stokes. England back in the game and looking good, the runs gathered pace to 151 runs in the partnership from 143 balls… Australia were getting hit all over the park sixes and fours aplenty… Then after a fantastic spell Morgan was run out for 87, leaving England in sight of victory at 194 for 4, ending a Morgan – Stokes record partnership of 159 runs. High quality cricket was order of the day!

England powered on to for 240 for 4 when rain stopped play for the second time, with England way ahead on the D/L Method…

England win by 40 runs (D/L Method)

England win once again making it 3 games – 3 wins!
