The 3rd game of the 3-match ODI series between England and Australia will be played at The Old Trafford in Manchester.

Preview:

Australia have themselves to blame for the loss in the second ODI. At 144/2 in the 31st over, while chasing a target of 232, they should have comfortably got over the line. However, the visitors failed to deliver the final punch and conceded England a 24-run win. Thus, as a result, the series is now levelled at 1-1.

The third and final ODI of this series that will be played on Wednesday is a do-or-die for both these teams. They would both like to push hard and clinch the series. England, already having won the T20I series, will like to dominate in the ODIs as well. Australia, on the other hand, will love to finish this tour on a winning note.
