On Sunday, Australia lost the winning match in the second ODI between England and Australia (ENG vs AUS) played in Manchester. The Kangaroo team collapsed despite being in a strong position in front of Chris Vaux’s deadly spell. Kangaroo captain Aaron Finch, who scored 73 runs during this period, was also bowled by Vox.
Finch’s wicket proved to be the turning point of the match and Australia (207/10), chasing a target of 232 runs, lost the match by 24 runs.
Vox came in to throw the 33rd over of the Australian innings. Finch played the first two balls of this over, playing the first two balls defensively. Finch then made a mistake reading the third ball of the over.
Finch batting was the 105th ball of the innings, but in this reading he made a complete mistake. This ball thrown forward of Vaux came in sharply inwards but Finch could not understand it. He tried to bat on this ball, but the ball hit him, hitting the middle and off stumps directly. The Kangaroos lost their 5th wicket as Finch.
ENG vs AUS: England won by bowling, 1-1 draw in series
Vaux bowled lethally, taking 3 wickets for 32 runs in 10 overs. He took all three wickets in a single spell. Playing with 2 wickets for 144 runs at one time, Australia lost their 4 crucial wickets (147/6) by reaching 147. After this, the host team did not give him a chance to recover.
