Australia thumped in third ODI against England

Australia has been thrashed by 93 runs in the third one-day international against England at Old Trafford.

The injury-ravaged side was set a target of 301 by England but crumbled for 207 with six overs remaining.

Recalled opener Aaron Finch was the only player to pass 50.


Australia made three injury-enforced changes for the match, with David Warner (thumb), Shane Watson (calf) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (hamstring) all flying home this week.

More changes could come after the heavy loss, with the world’s No.1 bowler Mitchell Starc looking in desperate need of a break after conceding career-worst figures of 1-79.

Australia still lead the ODI series 2-1.
